They probably won't have a proper "look" for her until the season...next? year? Whenever her first season is.

Hey guys I think we found the dumbass who didn't look for trains.

What a dumbass.

Archie Comics' TV Universe Will Expand Beyond Riverdale

Feb 15, 2017, 12:00pm

Riverdale is like a burger from Grill'd- high class junk food that I don't feel too bad for consuming. Good stuff.

The New Director Of Uncharted Is In 'Secret' Conversations To Cast Nathan Drake

Made this comment over on io9, but my wild card casting pick for Nate has always been Joshua Jackson.

Does Wearing A Fitness Tracker Help You Lose Weight?

Sep 21, 2016, 11:57am

Not faulting your analysis, but I'd make the point that my Mi Band cost about $35, and there are also app based things like Google Fit that can be used for step tracking for $0.

You always have your phone on you, enable google fit and see how you do.

Justice League's Flash And Cyborg Almost Had Very Different Costumes

Sep 20, 2016, 11:07am

Kinda glad they went with something a little more classic, especially for the Flash.

The Men Who Believe The Earth Is Flat

Yeah i kinda want to know this too. What holds us to a flat earth without centre pointing gravity? Is it, like, accelerating or something?

Well, if we're going by the standards of "what has been scientifically established" I would certainly put beings who can create others from ribs, speak to people through prayer, and intervene against the natural laws of the universe in ways that benefit individuals in the not category.

Science may not disprove the existence of god (s) in a literal sense, but it certainly doesnt suggest any framework by which god (s) can exist either.

You use a topology like a salt flat that should be dead flat

don't you see, BIG RAW FOOTAGE is in league with ROUND EARTHERS!

Oh, if I found out my doctor was a flat-earther, I'd question his judgement. I just think dismissing someone as mentally ill is a step too far.

I mean, there are plenty of doctors who are Christian, and so believe in something that science suggests is not true. I don't think that lessens their skill at medicine.

I do like @hungryhendo's question though

And Yet, it Moves. John and his ilk can deny it all he likes, but there are so many things that we experience that only make sense on a round earth.

The problem with flat earth theory (and many other similar conspiracies) is that it makes everything else much more complex. How do satellites work for John? What about people who have circumnavigated or travelled across antarctica? How come everything else in the universe is round but we're not? How does he explain the changes in the seasons?

Most of this stuff only works in a round earth.

I wouldn't call him mentally ill, I'd say he's working from false foundations in his logic.

New Netflix Shows May Be Delayed Because Of Australia's Classification System

That's a licensing deal issue. Deal with AU content providers was for a certain duration, which expires

Yeah, that was my first thought too

Cable Was Almost In The First Deadpool Movie

May 3, 2016, 12:04pm

Cable is (no joke) a Mutant Cyborg Soldier from the Future who is also the son of Cyclops and Jean Grey so he's mega powerful and carries giant guns and has a glowy eye and wears gear covered in pouches. He can also teleport, and this is relevant.

The 90s was a special time in comics.

He has a long history of association with Deadpool, but the best one is the series "Cable and Deadpool" where deadpool and Cable's cells get mingled, so every time Cable teleports anywhere Deadpool gets dragged with him. The series was essentially Cable trying to be mutant Martin Luther King and Deadpool being dragged along with him

Mar-vell sucks though. Dull as dishwater.

Emily Blunt would be awesome.

Companies Call On Australian Government To Step Up On Electric Cars

Apr 12, 2016, 3:35pm

As long as the incentives are on the technology, not a specific manufacturer, I can't see how that works?

If we incentivise "Electric/hybrid vehicles" and are manufacturer/origin agnostic, it's probably OK

Companies Call On Australian Government To Step Up On Electric Cars

Apr 12, 2016, 3:32pm

I'm in a unit block with an external carport- no nearby powerpoints.

FWIW, I'm not looking at buying one, I'm trying to make a broader point that until there's the charging infrastructure everywhere, it's hard to jump onto any EV.

Companies Call On Australian Government To Step Up On Electric Cars

Apr 12, 2016, 12:32pm

Yeah, I worry that the benefit of electric vehicles is going to push petrol cars down on those on lower incomes. Also, given the range on EVs, it's still very much something you can only get into if you're a city dweller, they're not yet suitable for rural/regional use.

They'll get there, but anything that can increase uptake would be great.

Companies Call On Australian Government To Step Up On Electric Cars

Apr 12, 2016, 10:07am

My main problem with an EV is that as a renter, I can't charge it at my home, nor can I have the infrastructure readily installed to do so- I imagine this will be a common complaint.

Melbourne Is Getting Public Transport Information On Google Maps From Today

Mar 23, 2016, 4:37pm

Surprised it took so long- I reckon Adelaide public transport has been integrated with google maps for 7-8 years at least

Australian Taxi Booking App ihail Gets The Green Light By ACCC

Mar 22, 2016, 11:06am

As long as I get my bloody taxi in a timely fashion from this, I'll use it.

Other network specific ones I've abandoned when I've had to wait for ages. With an Uber I know where the car is and how far off it is.
