#3098763 Panthers Workout Austin Pettis and 9 Others

Posted by dos poptarts on 20 November 2014 - 03:19 PM

pfft.....it's Tuesday workouts. Every team in the NFL works out guys that have nearly no chance of getting signed. Non-story.

#3098760 Greg Olsen on first take tomorrow

Olsen's going to have a post NFL career in front of a camera if he wants it.

Obviously another portal is opening up allowing more aliens to invade our planet


Russia's version of Black Mesa Research Lab?

Running out to Lowes and buying a crowbar.

#3097198 i want to start watching star wars with my daughter...

Watch Original Trilogy then Prequels.


Here is a vid that offers explanation where Lucas failed as a story teller and what he could have done. (instead of the standard prequels suck, JarJar, Midiclorians....blah.blah.blah.)

kipping is illegal in my world


Yea, my rock climbing class instructor @NCSU asked us to guess and do pull-ups at the beginning for assessment. IIRC, 18 would get you an A, 12 a B, 8 a C at mid-terms. Guy said he could get 25 easy. Instructor stood counting....ZERO, ZERO, ZERO, ZERO....took until 8 flops before the student understood that none of those were pull-ups. Guy had to start over and couldn't get 6.

#3088536 Ultimate Huddle debate: Greatest Kung Fu film?

Posted by dos poptarts on 16 November 2014 - 08:36 AM

If I had to pick a true #1 I'd go with Drunken Master II.

Jet Li's One Upon a China series next.


But for movies I can drop in and watch anytime:

City Hunter / Dragons Forever / Police Story / Armor of God II (the HK version, not the fugging US edited version)


Ip Man, The Raid Redemption, Ong Bak, Hero, are all strong.


For the fantasy themed, Storm Riders was fun to watch and A Chinese Ghost Story is very good.



#3081559 Back to Iraq

Posted by dos poptarts on 11 November 2014 - 12:03 PM

We didn't make a move on ISIS until they threatened the Iraqi oil fields and started robbing banks. Same as it ever was....


One more point to add....they started selling the oil from the wells they controlled to Turkey for pennies on the dollar. If they had set fire to the wells, I bet the first big cruise missile attack never happens.

#3039671 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

Posted by dos poptarts on 24 October 2014 - 08:23 AM

the media sensationalizes everything for sure, important or not important.


I think most people can think through most situations.  huddle has been pretty even on ebola discussions


Yea, just fill in the blank from your local or national news...

"Did you know that ______ in your child's (lunchbox, toys, school, playground.....etc..) can be deadly. Watch investigative news reporter's report at 6pm).



#3038739 First Case Of Ebola Diagnosed In The U.S.

Posted by dos poptarts on 23 October 2014 - 02:54 PM

Another example of fear mongering to line the pockets of the major news outlets.


Maybe our process for containing it was just fine, but was perceived lacking due to the fact that the media's escalation was devoured by the public creating foolish hysteria.  


Rational vs irrational fears would probably be an interesting separate topic in the Tbox.

I think the DC sniper attacks would be a great parallel. Statistically you shouldn't have any worries, but people will change their behavior.

#3038289 leaked Avengers 2 trailer

Posted by dos poptarts on 23 October 2014 - 08:38 AM

Can't wait to see how they handle Scarlet Witch and Quicksilver.


Brother - Sister....Husband - Wife (watching Godzilla knowing that they are in Avengers kept me laughing)

#3035885 Where to Start in the Comic World

Posted by dos poptarts on 21 October 2014 - 04:41 PM

Some of my favs:


God Loves, Man Kills X-Men graphic novel. (basis for the second Xmen film)

Wolverine Mini-Series #1 (part basis for the last Wolverine film). He actually fights the ninjas in the comic.

Xmen - Anything with Claremont was solid.

Alpha Flight (early stuff) && I think the Xmen & Alpha Flight mini-series (it was only 2-3 issues IIRC) w/ Loki would make a pretty solid superhero drama film.


Frank Miller's stuff.

TMNT - I remember seeing issue #1 in a comic convention in Eastland Mall. I was a broke kid but my friend bought it (edit: before it was popular)


I'm sure the Huddle can provide at least another 1000 (minimum) titles/story arcs to read.
