    This makes me love her even more. To just visit would be so appreciated, but to visit in her costume and also take the time to talk to everyone, such a wonderful thing to do. I'm crying just reading about it.

    Nice micro-documentary about the rise and fall of Toys R Us:



    One of their biggest mistakes was moving from the colorful, castle-like design to the generic white brick-and-mortar store look. When I was a kid, Toys R Us was a magical place.

    And that shot at 3:08... my God.

    She also went through intense training for her Wonder Woman role.

    Anyone remember "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century?" I watched reruns when I was very young and, for some reason, thought of it the other day and looked up some clips on YouTube. I saw Twiki and Erin Gray...

    And then I found this.

    Anyone here play WOW and would like to explain to me at least 1 of 2 things?

    1. Why is the battlenet site always down? Or is it just me? Two days I've tried to buy a subscription and the damn site won't load.

    2. Why do Steam downloads take so damn long? I'm just getting into pc games and have been a console person my entire life. I had no idea.

    Yup Ive done all the steam tricks with:
    • changing the download server.
    • stopping diaglist thingy in task manager
    • I'm hard wired
    • I've set priority for steam in task manager
    • its set to no limit and not throttled
    • My internet speeds would allow communication with Martians


    Is it just certain games on Steam? And is WOW always down?

    But the past two days have been so annoying I had no idea getting setup would take so much time.

    Im still having issues with WOW and decided to give up for now. Kinda sucks because Battle of Azeroth is about to start like right now. I'm gonna start Dragon Age Inquisition later on tonight. I need something to help me shut my brain off.

    I'm waiting on gamefly to finally send me something good. I've had God of War and Far Cry 5 at the top of the list forever. Instead I got Dynasty Warriors 9 (can you say nostalgia?) and the 3rd Maze Runner movie. At this rate I'll be in Afghanistan before they finally send me something I want.

    Never tried red dead. Westerns make me nauseous. I think it was all those years being forced to watch Bonanza and Gunsmoke at grandma's house.

    Nah, I'm talking about the newest one. Where Kratos has a kid. I loved the originals and can't wait to see how this one plays out (pun slightly intended).

    RDR 1 was a lot of fun, but it was too big for me when I played it. I found myself getting bored and finally just did story quests til I beat it. Hopefully RDR 2 has more spice to keep things different and new.

    Okay, here's an nerd question:

    So, are Klingon and Elvish considered to be real languages like Esperanto?

    Amazing! I read about how he played it and campaigned to be him. I can't believe he's going to do it. Also, please read the books - totally different from any other fantasy (JRRR Tolkein, JRRRR Martin, etc). And the fact that the author is Polish gives a bit of authenticity to the cruelty and the medieval setting - there are still echoes of those cultures in modern Poland.

    Trust me you need to play this game.

    I would say they are real in that someone created the language, but people actually speak Esperanto. People learn Elvish for a lark.

    Incidentally, Tolkien created Elvish they way other guys whittle or whatever other useless hobby in a wartime setting. As a way to take your mind off the German guns of World War One. He created it in the Trenches. It was strictly to occupy his mind in downtime during WW1. My Dad said there was a guy in Vietnam that would carve baseball bats with a combat knife, Soldiers get THAT bored in downtime in a war setting. Tolkien just did what he knew.

    The Klingon guy just did it to sell a book.
