That’s terrible. I can’t stand the guy, and he is by most accounts a loathsome douchebag, but I would never wish cancer on...almost anyone. Read more

I know that no one can play the same role forever, especially a super hero role, but Chris Evans got Captain America so right that I would be glad to see him in it again, if just one more.  Super mega bonus points if Peggy is back too.

Yep. I never really liked the Narnia books when I was a kid, though I didn’t even know about the Christian allegory stuff until much later. The racism thing is also bullshit. He told his Nazi era German publisher to get bent when they asked him if he was Jewish. Read more

Could Balerion the Dread break a mountain range in his death throws? No. No he could not.

There have been so many “Tolkienesque” novels and games that people tend not to realize just how weird LotR is, especially if they haven’t read it, or tried to and just couldn’t get into it. It’s not a D&D-type fantasy world, and it’s not an allegory. It is, like Tom Bombadil, just sort of its own thing, and that’s Read more

Morgoth was the most evil threat to Middle Earth. He was the first of the Ainur who rebelled against Iluvater. He was the one who led other gods or angels astray. He was the one who caused the rebellion of the Noldor and was responsible for kidnapping, torturing, and corrupting Elves until they became Orcs. Sauron was Read more

Been working out in a home gym for years now and never miss the mirrors. Filming my sets has been far more valuable. Get a cheap tripod for your phone and take some video if you feel like you need to. I don’t do it for everything, and I think there is probably an over emphasis on “perfect” form these days, but it can Read more

Under what circumstances can you possibly be not getting enough hydration? Are there people out there who feel thirsty, and then decide not to drink anything? Read more

Born in the early 80's myself. This is sad and frightening in equal measures.

Condolences to his family and friends.

Didn’t really care about it, but did enjoy Oliver dealing with his adult kids on the present day. It would have been better if by changing the future they no longer had a place to go back to so had to make their way in the present day. That way you get a new Green Arrow for the titular show and the Arrow supporting Read more

This has a real ‘internet of the ‘00s’ vibe to it, and that’s high praise.

Mixed feelings on this one. On the one hand genuinely thought Kat McNamara was well suited to Mia and there was a lot of really interesting possibilities surrounding her. On the other... boy was that backdoor pilot uninspired and in a shared universe having a ‘future’ show set just 20 years ahead of the rest was Read more

I know that you cover hydration already, but the low energy can be a sign of dehydration as well. That’s one other reason that detoxes give more energy since all you can have is liquids, people that generally don’t drink water are filling their stomachs with it multiple times a day to get some level of satiety
