Re: Grenfell Tower Block Fire in London

Definite signs of flashover, which is where all combustible surfaces immediately burst into flame, and possibly flameover, where the toxic gases in a room catch fire. This means very high heat, possibly high enough to cremate bones.

Re: A question on bath towels

My mom made us get a clean washcloth and towel EVERY SINGLE TIME. It was huge load of towels by laundry day. In college, I asked myself why, and started hanging my towel and cloth out to dry. Shower ever other day, wash the towel on my day to have the washer/dryer, and I got by with one towel and on...

Re: Van Hits Mosque Crowd In London

Yeah... I was wondering when someone would decide to 'punish the muslims' for the actions of a few.

What makes someone think that the answer to a senseless killing is killing more people? Especially when the people you're killing had NOTHING to do with the first murders?

Re: Republican Politician Shot: Steve Scalise

No. You need to do something about those knee-jerk reactions. I'm saying that there is a disparity in power level (not the best term but it'll do for now) between the two. As such that means that if the right wing extremists want to start a war or whatever, they're more likely to "win" (o...

Re: What films of the last decade or so will gain a lasting cult following?

I have to agree with Event Horizon as well. Creepy location, well-done suspense, Lovecraftian-style horror, and a cast that pulled it off beautifully. I can see the "Warp-Drive" connection to WH20K. The jump did take them through or to someplace where Gellar-fields might have been a big he...

Re: Republican Politician Shot: Steve Scalise

Since the shooter died of his wounds, we'll never know what made him snap. What we do know is he left his wife and moved to DC several months before the attack, which to me leans towards "pre-meditated" just as much as the volume of ammo. We know he asked a witness "Are these the Repu...

Re: Grenfell Tower Block Fire in London

I read the Concerned Citizens blog. The building owners are claiming each flat was remodeled to be a 'self-contained fire-proof box', surrounded by fire-proofing materials and safety walls that would not burn. Thus, 'staying put' would have left them safe from the fire. :wtf: Excuse me, there's no f...

Re: What films of the last decade or so will gain a lasting cult following?

The problem with many of today's films is they are already BASED on 'Cult Classics' -- Marvel, DC, Transformers, hell, even LEGO. However, here is my list of Movies that will go (or maybe have already gone) "Cult*: 1. RDJ's Sherlock Holmes. Holmes has had a cult following for over a hundred yea...

A minor niggle, but Ares' moustache looked totally stupid and I couldn't take him seriously as a villain. :lol: I actually thought that made him more ironic, because he was born a God, but looked so mousy.

On that note, if Zeus was her father...exactly how old is she? Following that logic -- how old was Hipolyta? Antiope? or any of the adult Amazons? In theory, they were all around when Ares started his rampage, and Zeus sealed off the island. How old were they then? Assuming Ares started his rampage...

8/10 Great visuals, cohesive plot, great mix of comedy, pathos, action, and love story. I admit to crying, both over the town, and over Steven.
