I was tying to figure out why you wouldn't balance your training then realised of course they are trying to qualify for a weight class.  They want as little weight in the rest of their body as possible and just power where it is needed.

Very well adapted, very odd looking.

LordJim Oh god I love a good Cumberland.  but I do have to alternate with Lincolnshire otherwise my taste buds get a bit over saturated.  After those who'd want a basic pork sausage I ask you?  Unless of course a caramelised onion sausage is in the offing in which case I'm in!

Patented in 2009, pitched in 2015 and in 2018 selling at a few stands at fairs in WA.  The Sharks/Dragons must be kicking themselves for missing out on that juggernaut that pretty much anyone can make at home.  The only business potential of that is selling novelty buns in a supermarket.

Also, you get a nice, fresh cooked burger and chop it in half so that the juices leak and it dries out while you attack the hotdog while trying not to spill handfuls of ingredients down your shirt.

That's a hard pass.  I think I'll just have a proper burger, and if I fancy one, a hotdog to go with it.  With all the separate dressings that go along.  Mustard and onions on a hotdog, ketchup, salad and pickles on a burger.  There is no overlap in the two items except they both come in a bun.

As I understand it, this was a covered boat.  In a covered boat you should not don life jackets inside as you will be pinned to the roof and unable to escape.  I don't know if they were told not to take jackets at all or just told not to put them on inside.

7eggert questionable whether she'd have even _noticed_ anything more than something bumping into her.  I don't imagine the 'sensation' of a human and a stallion are too similar.

dkm458 I kinda liked the movie - if you totally ignore the basis material.  I was reading at the same timeframe as Troopers - John Steakley's Armor which has more than passing similarities to Troopers.  Great book none the less.

Lovely and fascinating, but if he is trying to emulate the gait of a quadruped he needs to lean more about anatomy and locomotion.  Animals when walking do not pick up opposite corners/feet at the same time, they have a distinct a distinct (and very complicated) gait.

Look a some of the smaller Brit films as well - The Full Monty, Saving Grace, What We Did On Our Holiday etc.  Even 4 Weddings and A Funeral / Notting Hill at a pinch.

China is just a complete dump.  Even in cities everything is built to the lowest, cheapest, fastest 'standard'.  Last time I was in Shanghai going into a bank lobby to use the ATM I went to open the big glass door that you would see on any back.  The whole metal handle, floor to ceiling just came away in my hand.  I just put it down and used the other door, no-one cared.

Don't even get me started on traffic, cars, bicycles, pedestrians and the lack of consideration for other human beings.  Crossing the road, even at proper crossings, is just suicidal.  If China picks up on Russia's fascination with dash-cams we are going to see stuff that will make the Russians look like careful professional drivers.

It was fascinating to see how bad it was. watching taxis bumping along sidewalks to queue jump traffic.  Our own taxi having a ramming contest with a tram (we just got out and left him to it) seriously who tries to ram a tram off its tracks?  People's bicycles collapsing under them (cheap rubbish) and cars just driving over the bits.

One highlight was watching two cars full of people get out in a road rage incident and go full Jackie Chan on each other.  Big fight, spinning kicks, the lot.  Then one bloke got out in a white shell suit and demolished the lot of them.  Unbelievable.  They all got back in their cars and drove on.  Ridiculous.

The problem with that plan was that there was no plan.  No-one seemed in immediate danger (until the old man decided to try gator rodeo - I'm just assuming this was Florida and a 'gator).  Just walk away and leave it be.

He was lucky not to lose that arm.

Dreadful!

Of the previous Supermen, George Reeves was a little before my time.  I was a young boy when I wen to see Superman when it was first released.  At that age on the big screen, yes Christopher Reeves could fly and was the man of steel.  Superman II was very good too.  Then II and IV happened and it all got a bit camp.

Lois and Clark was alright as Saturday night TV, but mostly because of Teri Hatcher.

The Smallville reboot was very entertaining, but it dragged on far too long.

I though Brandon Routh did a great job with a poor script in Superman Returns.

Overall I have to say I really enjoyed Man of Steel greatly.  Henry Cavill is believable and carrys the role well.  Superman vs. Batman and Justice League however were both terrible films - even if Cavill played Supes well.

Tyler Hoechlin in Supergirl?  Frankly I'm surprised the suit wasn't baggy on him.  I don't recall any version of Superman where he was weak-jawed and hook-nosed.  Awful casting.

scheckydamon Thanks for the insight.  I get the idea of having one in the chamber for LEOs on active duty or holstered but it seems incongruous when tucked in the waistband at a a bar.

So he was in a bar with a loaded handgun, doing backflips.  Presumably it was a glock with 'just' trigger safety.  Oh, and he 'had one in the chamber'.  Not smart.
