  1. I have found myself saying on uncomfortably hot days... "It needs to be about twenty percent cooler."
  2. Banned for starting a new page whose number divided by three is the title of a cult science fiction film.
  3. Wait, it is still alive. :crackle:

      Indeed, been super busy at work lately on a training course so I haven't been on here so much.

  4. The Chronicles of Thomas Covenant, the Unbeliever by Stephen Donaldson, following on from the Gap Series by the same author. I have read the first book of the series previously but never managed to get any further at that time, so this time I'm going for the full trilogy, and perhaps the second chronicles after that.
  5. I'm fine with violent video games, most of the games I play feature some degree of violence although I don't pick them out specifically for that reason. I've enjoyed the Grand Theft Auto series since the very beginning and also games like Hitman, Fallout, Assassins Creed and the most recent crop of Tomb Raider games in which Lara Croft is an absolute steely-eyed murder machine. My response to those that complain about violence in games will always be that if you don't like it, then don't play it.
  6. This is a really hard choice. Since the beginning the CMC have been so tightly bound together that they are practically a gestalt entity and it's almost impossible for me to single out one of them for distinction over the other two. None of them are interchangeable and to imagine the CMC without any one of them would be tantamount to having Rainbow Dash without her wings, Twilight without her horn or Applejack without her hat.
  7. BNA. Perhaps not as good as Beastars but thoroughly enjoyable in its own right and I'm certainly all-in for season two, assuming there will be one.
  8. Alien life certainly exist somewhere in the universe, the sheer mathematical improbability of this one planet alone carrying life makes it hard to argue against. The chances of that life being as technologically advanced (or more) then here is going to diminish somewhat the higher up the tech tree you go. I'm not what the odds are of a civilisation advanced enough to have developed faster-than-light travel is, and whether or not any alien civilisation has visited Earth is very much up for debate. Paranormal creatures, ghosts, demons etc. I couldn't dismiss the possibility of entirely, however, I remain very sceptical and I've never heard any account of such things that inclines me towards believing in them. The human mind is a very strange thing which has a multitude of ways of tricking you into thinking that you have perceived something that wasn't actually there. As for cryptids, some are undoubtedly sheer fantasy, some are the result of tall tales which grow with each telling, and the rest? Well, no creature was known to exist until it was known to exist, and new species are discovered all the time. Maybe one day I'll find out that fairies are real, and my world will be forever changed.
  9. There's only a very few (mostly online) vendors in the UK that stock items like these, and they only get them in limited quantities, at this stage if I want the Twilight one I'm going to have to turn to eBay and hope the secondary market prices aren't too ridiculous.
  10. I would say exactly the same about your sexuality. Call it whatever you like, nobody owns the phrase.
  11. Concerned indeed. So concerned I ended up following. =3=

  12. This delectable filly for sure. Nopony adds as much charm to the background as Cloudchaser.
  13. I have the Rainbow Dash one on pre-order, I'd like the Twilight one as well if I can get a hold of one, they don't stick around on the shelves long. Of course if a Luna one comes out, that will be an instant buy without a doubt.
  14. I would have liked some higher-end action figures, something like Figma, SH Figuarts or even Hot Toys. Figurines would have been good as well, I would have loved an intricately carved Prime 1 Studio (or similar) Luna. Realistically though I guess maybe the adult fanbase isn't large enough for companies like that to justify pursuing a licence.
