Yeah, my favorite Assassin’s Creed moment was in the end of AC2 when Minerva spoke to Desmond via Ezio’s memories. Ezio had no idea what was going on and it’s not like Desmond could talk to her since he wasn’t really controlling Ezio, but none of it would have worked if not for the connection to the present day. And… Read more
I never actually saw the Michael Fassbender movie and I haven’t played the last several games in the series (last one I beat was Black Flag, though I did do maybe half of Syndicate), but I’m cautiously optimistic. I feel like a tv series can do the premise justice while allowing both sides of the setting (modern day… Read more
Ah yes, 1, 2, 3, 4, 4, 4, 5 is the spookiest way to count to 6.
Maybe I'm an idiot but why is this the Rocky Horror Show and not the Rocky Horror Picture Show? Something to do with the rights?
Both of those link to the same page (https://vote.elections.virginia.gov/VoterInformation), it’s just that the Virginia page doesn’t have necessarily clear instructions. But anyone can go through the Arlington link (or the PWC page), it doesn’t matter.
Part of the point of the article is that your definition of “picky” may not be the same as everyone’s - “preferences or dislikes” is often included, even if you don’t intend that. And I don’t think the idea of “deficient in an extreme survival situation” was necessarily clear, it comes off as “morally deficient” or… Read more
I said to someone else, but that’s not necessarily the definition used in a wider sense. And either way, not eating a food doesn’t make your kid “a deficient person.”
My best guess for Detmer was that first she had some trauma from the crash, but after that it was PTSD - it started after she saw the people who died in the crash, and in her mind maybe she feels guilty for not crashing better and saving all of them. But I’m sure it’s something they’ll keep on.
Oh yeah, those kids are definitely still picky, it’s just like an extreme subset of the term. At some point it does go past “let your kid be a kid and don’t forcefeed them things they hate” to a problem.
I get “liked” and “loved” but I always have to look up “emphasized” when it happens (because it’s pretty uncommon and impossible to know what they meant).
That might be in reference to the supertaster gene, basically it’s about a quarter of the population (half is regular, a quarter is nontasters) that perceive certain tastes (including but not limited to green vegetables) as very bitter. It’s nothing that you can’t get past if you want to (either by will or cheese) but… Read more
That might be how you use the term, but that’s not how it’s widely used (and that’s part of the point of the issue in the article). Depending on who you talk to, anyone not liking any specific food or ordering their food without an ingredient at a restaurant qualifies as “picky”.
No joke, I avoided pesto for most of my life because it’s green and I assumed that (like vegetabes) I wouldn’t like it. But it’s great!
