Though, if you want to be technical, World War 3 already happened. It happened in the 1940s. World War 1 is known as the French and Indian War.
No one in the rest of the world calls it that, the North American theatre was a sideshow to what was happening in Europe.

Bah! Everyone knows this is the correct map of the solar system. No worries. We'll educated you Yoo-Oh-Pee-Uns eventually

:P

Fragging American education system not covering the entirety of a massive fragging war...

It's really all just a matter of what's interesting or cogent.

For example, in Indian reckoning of history, there was absolutely no mention or record of Alexander the Great invading them. He failed there, so they really didn't give a s%*+ one way or the other to even remember him.

There was this thing I call the "F$**ing 1,945 Year War" in Europe, and we went over there and put the Kybosh on it in 1945 for the most part.

I had to look up Emil Minty, to see what he was up to.

World War IV


Stanislav Petrov, hero of the Cold War and real life savior of the planet.

Way I figure, the more bobo's that end up getting nukes, the closer the chances of something like a flock of seagulls beginning armageddon approach 100%.

There will be no sides, no lines,

Just a recreation of this episode of Three Stooges with ICBM's instead of pies.

Then, we can have The Road, and the starvation, and the redneck cannibals with shotguns.

I also predict that, within 20 years, we will see the first nuclear exchange brought about by a discussion on twitter.


Yup.


Well, I will petition that .gov site to see if it can be renamed "Washington D.L." ie District of LazarXia, since you apparently would have done it righter.

Don't listen to the nay sayers, I think this is a great idea! So good in fact it is probably worthy of being your life's work. And actually, it is definitely worthy of being your life's work. You should probably get started on it right away, and remember to devote ALL your time to it, no more free time to post on Paizo, that's time you could be calling companies to get their billion dollar donations. . .

I know what you're trying to do, but it won't work. He doesn't have the gumption to pull it off.

There's also the matter that Columbus was outright WRONG. He seriously underestimated the distance that India would have been the long way around, and his crew would have starved to death if the American continents did not get in his way. Nor did he even once recognize the fact after four Voyages that he never reached the East Indies. It's not necessarily true that so many rejected Columbus because they were Flat Earthers, only that he did not have a route that would be profitable to the East Indies over the one already used and dominated by Portugal, and in the end his Voyages gave no initial return on the investment Isabella put into them, which is among the reasons why he came home from his last voyage in shackles.
Columbus was likely thinking what are the odds there is a continent in my way running from the north pole to south pole...at best a sea of islands like on the south pacific charts.

He probably b!#~#!+*ted the numbers, because selling a 3000 mile trip is easier than selling a 12000 mile trip.

Backers are kinda useful, and if they're not hip to Eratosthenes, you oughtta tell them that Cipangu is 3000 miles thatta way instead of 12000 miles......

Or, as Bob told Nadine in Drugstore Cowboy, "Next time you step into the middle of one of my deals to help me with my arithmetic, I'll sell you to the first one-eyed carnival freak I can find for a pack of chewing gum!"

NSFW.......narcotics dealing....

I will bet him ten times that that Thor won't be played by a woman in Age of Ultron.


You could call somebody who cared for a quarter.

To all you people complaining. You are the worst.

This is a great springboard for stories, and Classic Thor will still exist in the title: "The Unworthy Thor".

Captain America is going to be replaced by Sam Wilson, and the next year or two of Marvel will be about legacies and eventually the precious status-quo will be restored. Can people not just enjoy the stories as they are told without moaning?

Maybe there isn't anything there to enjoy? I haven't even been reading Marvel comics because they don't tell good stories in the first place. This isn't suddenly going to change that.

I kinda wish William S. Burroughs would do a comic book and make Thor female because then it would be worth reading. Or, maybe Alan Moore, since he's alive and all.

Otherwise, I get the feeling that it's just "hey! look! Marvel made Thor a woman; aren't we sooooooo groovy? Now look at DC.....the whole JLA is a Meat Locker. Wow; they sure are misogynists. Poor Wonder Person."

If the story's good, the thing redeems itself and it doesn't matter.
I like Rat Queens i.e. a DnD group of women who have a Fafhrd/Grey Mauser mentality but they aren't dudes. I liked the Authority i.e. a bunch of crazy "heroes" with a gay Superman and Batman ripoff, but hey the stories were awesome. Yay. Superman's (Apollo) gay. Batman's (Midnighter) gay. I don't give a s%@~ one way or the other, but the story and art were awesome. They killed the Avengers, they killed the X Men; it was awesome!!! The thing didn't try to rest on the crux of "wow; we have a gay Superman/Batman; aren't we so f$!&ing snazzy?"

It's actually really awesome when this kind of affirmitave action for fictional characters deal doesn't end up being a snorefest.

such treason

so mango

wow


Taught by the powers that preach over me
I can hear their empty reasons
I wouldn't listen, I learned how to fight
I opened up my mind to treason
But just like the wounded, and when it's too late
They'll remember, they'll surrender
Never a care for the people who hate
Underestimate me now


So are they going to make Movie Thor Katie Sackhoff now?

No. No they are not.

Because this is just Marvel Cheezy Marketing Gimmick # 5,812, and like when DC "Kills" Batman or Superman, it will all be back to normal in 6 months.


Oh Yay.

Mavel Cheezy Marketing Gimmick # 5,812.

I wonder if anybody's going to whinge because she has boobplate, or let it slide because this is definitely going to pull feminism into the 21st century.

Trying to figure out if the GRE is a bigger pain in the ass, less of a pain in the ass, about an equal pain in the ass, or if there is not enough info to tell if it is one of those than being impaled by Vlad Tepes on some sort of bill hook.


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

Thanks!

Is the pain in the ass greater than, less than, about equal to, or is there not enough information to tell if it is more of a pain in the ass than actually being impaled on a polearm by Vlad Tepes?

Taking the GRE tomorrow (grad school entry exam, for those from not USA who call their tests differently).

Good times...


You also had to pay for training which sucked the loot right back out of you.


NOW IN TECHNICOLOR!

Taking the GRE tomorrow (grad school entry exam, for those from not USA who call their tests differently) may not be around much today.

Strategically, I think the economy being in the dumps as it is makes it a poor decision to come rolling out a new edition of a game people are likely to need or want to dump hundreds of dollars on.


hellz yeah. this is going to end awesomely.


they seriously need to do an indiegogo for this.

I'm fairly confident that I have a very good assessment with YD. He puts up threads that are deliberately silly and designed to get attention.

It's been working.

Yes. and that's all I'm saying as I'm not motivated enough to click your links.
I'd click the link. I learned something.
Yeah, that was actually a rather interesting page to read.

I totally get Playboy for the articles.

Of course it does. It also makes it difficult to criticize the Palestinian "terrorist" organizations for targeting civilian targets. As much as accepting this leaves a dry taste in my mouth.

I got no difficulties. It serves no purpose, is probably counterproductive, and just makes them look like the a!$*~#*s that they are.


Israel's army exists for a reason other than bullying Palestinians is my point.

What, you want them to assault army bases instead? Israel has what, the sixth largest military in the world? Face it, the only thing they can affect is civilian targets. Against military targets, they have nothing, no chance, no hope. And due to their lack of resources, their operations WILL cost them people.

I'm sorry, but I'm reminded of the 6 Day War for some reason.

Israel:
50,000 troops
214,000 reserves
300 combat aircraft
800 tanks[3]

Total troops: 264,000
100,000 deployed

The Gang of Belligerants:
Egypt: 240,000
Syria, Jordan, and Iraq: 307,000
957 combat aircraft
2,504 tanks[3]

Total troops: 547,000
240,000 deployed


Thing is, Hamas should've learned what Hitler should've learned from the London blitz: you don't break the enemy's back by just bombing all their s$&$ on and on ad nausea. You just piss them off royally.

"We shall go on to the end. We shall fight in France, we shall fight on the seas and oceans, we shall fight with growing confidence and growing strength in the air, we shall defend our island, whatever the cost may be. We shall fight on the beaches, we shall fight on the landing grounds, we shall fight in the fields and in the streets, we shall fight in the hills; we shall never surrender, and if, which I do not for a moment believe, this island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God's good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old."

Saying Terrorist is a boo word is odd. They are using violence to terrorize people in an attempt to advance their political aims. That is what a Terrorist is. Whether it is Hamas, the IRA, the Unabomber, elements of the US Army in Vietnam, or Vlad Tepes.

The key is that we only call certain groups of people who "use violence to terrorize people in an attempt to advance their political aims" terrorists and whether we call them that or not depends on our political aims.

That doesn't change what they are.

"The Dresden atrocity, tremendously expensive and meticulously planned, was so meaningless, finally, that only one person on the entire planet got any benefit from it. I am that person. I wrote this book, which earned a lot of money for me and made my reputation, such as it is. One way or another, I got two or three dollars for every person killed. Some business I'm in." -Kurt Vonnegut


Maybe that's where the Australians got their name from: The Ancient Umpire of Austria.


Afghanistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan. All named after some dude named Stan.

I don't know who Stan was, but he sure did get around a lot. Maybe he's some kind of culture hero or god king. Maybe he's like their Odin or Zeus.

Stan: definitely the Man.
