    CONGRATULATIONS! How cool can anything get? That thing is a flying pickup (even more SO than a Cessna 180)

    Looks expensive to fly.. Do you pay for it yourself?

    Aren't they supposed to be little kids? When my Daughter was a little kid she used to watch Powerpuff Girls reruns. I'll admit I'm not all up on it but as I recall they were little kids.

    That's awesome! I love the Piaggio P.180 Avanti propjet. If I was rich, I would buy one.

    Have you seen "Superman & Lois"? It's pretty good.

    It's not bad. It's a little weird. Superman and Lois both move to Smallville. Clark gets fired from the Daily Planet, and Lois quits. They have two kids. And Lois gets a job at the local newspaper. It's a different take on Superman, but I watch it. I don't, so far, think it's bad at all. It's definitely a CW show, though. Lois has a big role, though, and that's good. Her name is in the title, after all. She's usually portrayed as the screaming Brunette. Not so in this.

    Stellaris released the Palpatine DLC

    I always said the Star Wars prequel trilogy had vision. horrible acting, execution, dialogue, etc. but an immense vision.

    No offense, but I think it looks terrible. But I haven't seen much about it.

    ^ Nah the combination of cute and suicidal is a very unique, jarring, and disquieting combination. It definitely piqued my interest, and if they are as smart with the rest of movie I will enjoy it.

    I have my original Stay-Puft pencil sharpener in a box somewhere. It's from a 1984 Happy Meal. I loved it.

    Well, you're older than I am. But that's cool.

    I liked the first one. Tolerated the second one. Didn't even watch the third one. Kinda like the Robocop movies.

    Godzilla Vs. Kong.

    I've watched it probably ten times since it came out on HBO Max. It's a great movie. The Titan fights are amazing, the Human stuff is... better than the last one, lets put it that way. I've loved Godzilla since I was a little kid, so this is right up my alley. This is my favorite of the Monsterverse.

    I still think it looks bad. I'll wait for the reviews. It's a bunch of kids as the Ghostbusters? Count me out, personally.

    Really enjoying "Invincible" on Amazon. I was on the fence about it at first until I saw the voice cast. They had me at JK Simmons and Walt Goggins.
