The (non-political) W.T.F. Thread

The Burj Al Arab Hotel

http://www.breitbart.tv/?p=340233

Apparently what is shown is their "two-star" room.

They claim to be the only "seven-star" luxury hotel in the world.

MO-FO! Thats a nice place.  :o

Just wonder what they charge a night? :-\
One night = arm
Three nights = leg(s)
Week = First born child

Heck the nicest one I ever stayed in was the Hotel Western, and it had roaches. :P

You forgot "pound of flesh closest to your heart" ;D

Given that he he mentioned that everything was covered in gold, and that that's the two star room, I'd expect the prices there to also be the highest in the world.

I wish scientists would get off cloning.  It's not the way of the future.  Genetic diversity can't be superseded by cloning.  If there's not enough left, they die (which includes humans).  It's the way of nature.


What I'm wtfing about is Disney's acquisition of Marvel Comics.  The end is near...

And what do they plan to do with the wolves if successful?  They keep trying to kill off the ones that reproduce naturally.  :P


*ponders whether Disney will corrupt Marvel, or vice versa*


Ok, for mine: http://www.associatedcontent.com/article/1983514/harry_potter_so_good_even_the_pope.html?cat=40

The pope hated the previous movies and books as evil... but unless the movie is significantly different from the book, one where Harry becomes obsessed with Malfoy and revenge, starts using curses and dark magic, and the bad guys have a major victory towards the end... is good?

Disney always wins, they destroy everything they touch.  I think in the next few years we'll see Pixar crashing and burning.  What they've put out lately was likely things they already had in the works before Disney got them.  I've heard Ponyo was pretty terrible compared to Miyazaki's other works, and I think that has something to do with Studio Gihbli doing their american licensing through Disney. I only hope Stan Lee had the sense to keep a hold tightly on X-Men and Spiderman, and now has the sense to run full bore away from Marvel to get the rest of the new movies made under different management.

WHHHHAAAATTTT?!  :o

Okay, I admit the composite mutant stuff was pretty stupid, and they TOTALLY failed at Gambit (the best character ever), but I mean... Epic back story for the win.  I'm not gonna lie, I cried a little when he didn't recognize his dead girl after getting shot in the head.  The core of the movie was good and explained a lot about how Logan is today (to me at least), the excuse they used for conflict was not.

Perhaps I was too harsh. Of course the story of freakin Wolverine IS epic. I wanted to know his history, and now I know it.
But too much of the movie was cliche followed by predicable cliche. Plot depth and character development were sacrificed for cameos, effects, and 'shock' twists that everyone could see coming.
The biggest problem with that movie: adamantium bullets.
Really?    ...Really?

Good personal story about Logan; bad pretty much everything else
