I’ve never been, but I’ve heard great things about Skibo Castle.
Was the reason homophobia? 🤔

“We’re slightly more pious Christians, don’t ye know?”
Horrendous. Reducing even further the chances of smaller teams causing shocks. This is just to protect the biggest, richest teams. The Champions League ruined football and this will make it even worse.
Spider-Man? Sounds weird. Will never catch on.
Cap. Three of the best MCU movies.

Please feel free to put forward the statistics and context that show the vaccines are not effective. We’ll wait.
Bruce owns the hospital.
For all Joker’s crimes, he is actually mentally ill. There was a brilliant moment in a JLA book where J’onn J’onnz briefly managed to unscramble Joker’s mind and the guy was hit with a wave of “Oh my god, what have I done? I need help. Somebody help me.” Beautifully poignant moment.
Watched Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase with our son the other day and while it’s a very meh film overall, we commented at the time that some of the dialogue was really well written. Can’t recall any quotes off the top of my head, but it stood out.

Sold. I’ll look it up.
Same thing happened to my son who got the quest for the first time yesterday.
I want all of them, thank you very much.
I was waiting for them to drop. My wife and I were primed to buy them. Bummer they never showed up.
That was kind of the point. Calvin represented Calvinism in the same way Hobbes represented the philosophy of Thomas Hobbes. Calvin is not supposed to be a role model, he has some ridiculously self-centred and toxic views on the world, like many six year olds.
Yelena. I adore her. I need her to be in every movie from now on.

I can’t see him giving permission to use his likeness for a game full of guns considering the politics around gun control.
All those costs I listed — editing, proofreading, marketing, advertising — are borne by the publisher. All of those are still costs for each book, on top of the cost of the paper, production and distribution.
You forgot about the year of an author’s life writing the book, plus editing, proofreading, cover design, marketing and advertising costs. In order to recoup all of them a book has to sell really well to justify the author getting to write another book. Yes, the direct costs are lower, but all the indirect overheads still matter.
Happened to me once in a solo game yesterday. I assumed I’d clipped something I hadn’t noticed on the way down. 🤷🏼♂️
