Re: TV Series

I find that a lot of it has to do with character degradation. What seems to happen is there will be a serious character, who's talented, powerful, etc. (it depends on the nature of the show) and then this character becomes popular and more comedic. After a while, this character was once looked at se...

Just wondering: the iconic throne seems pretty ... spiky. If someone sat on it without taking care, would it be a game of thorns? ;)
I can't say for sure, but that might be the point. :lol:

Re: Hey Rath!

90 to 100% humidity sounds insane. :shock: How can anyone get around during the summer? Obviously people still have to go to school/work, go shopping for necessities etc. -- but the humidity must be draining. :( The heat and humidity makes driving a necessity. Well, that and the size of the city it...

I saw this and thought it was an appropriate image to include in this thread. :D

Re: Hey Rath!

However, when I moved down from the Midwest 25 years ago, I would often get asked, "How do you survive/deal with all of that snow/terrible road conditions up North?" My reply was that we couldn't just hibernate for a couple of months -- we had to keep living! I had a slightly similar situation when...

By entering Stellar Santiago's body, he boldly goes where no man has gone before. ;)
Depends how promiscuous Santiago might've been in the past. :lol:

Re: Hey Rath!

I should add that Texas is a big state and some areas of it normally get snow while others it's extremely rare. I spent the first 28 years of my life in Houston and during all that time I saw it snow maybe twice and even then it almost immediately melted as soon as the snow hit the ground. Because o...

Re: There and back again; a Neverending Tale. Neverending Nights

But ... what about Star Trek films in the 70s and 80s? IIRC, there was just one ST film in the 70s (the original), but there were at least 5 in the 80s, no? :) All of the Star Trek films from the Prime Timeline: The Motion Picture* - 1979 The Wrath of Khan - 1982 The Search for Spock - 1984 The Voy...

Re: What's On Your Mind? (Silly or Serious!)

Before Pasteur, rabies could definitely kill children. Rabies can (and still does) kill people all different ages. Unless you get injections after being bitten by an animal suspected of carrying rabies, the virus WILL kill you. Rabies is an interesting virus in that it has nearly a 100% fatality ra...

Re: Hey Rath!

Does summer for US/Canada start in July/August? Winter starts in June for me and goes until the 1st of September. This is how the seasons are categorized in the northern hemisphere. Spring: March, April, and May Summer: June, July, and August Fall/Autumn: September, October, and November Winter: De...

Re: Game of Thrones

... I wonder how much the end of GoT (show) is going to impact book sales. I don't think it really will. The books differ in a lot of ways than the show. I imagine the fans who bought the books while experiencing "GoT withdrawal" between seasons probably had a difficult time reading about a story a...

Re: Game of Thrones

GoT is loosely based on medieval European history, but like everyone's already said, it's a completely different world. There is some magic (although it's a very low-magic world for fantasy) and of course, a few dragons. Those dragons are unusual, however, since it was thought that all the dragons d...

Re: Hey Rath!

I know. *hangs head* :( The last one was 3 months ago, so I guess next time I can pick up PoE on sale will be in June, right? ;) I bet part of the issue is the time difference between Bellevue, Washington state (Steam) and and Warsaw, Poland (GOG). Sure, both Steam and GOG show the amount of time l...

Re: Hey Rath!

Hey Tawm! Question for you ... :) Which would you say is better: Pillars of Eternity or PoE 2? ;) I've taken another look at these, and the only difference I can see is that the latter has sound when people speak. Otherwise, the general look-and-feel reminds me of Baldur's Gate 2, NWN, and games of...
