maybe you are bad instead

Rushy himself isn't real, therefore it isn't possible to "meet him irl". There's absolutely zero evidence that Rushy exists in any way.

okay but i met him irl literally almost a year ago to the day

Anyway that being said, I enjoyed it. If you can ignore the flaws it's a fun romp that amazingly just flies by, even with the ridiculous Zach Snyder slo-mo that's littered through. 6/10 would recommend. But just barely.

I saw it yesterday and concur. Now just waiting for saddam's wall of text about it.

I guess I should watch Shazam. Really haven't watched much of whatever DC has been doing lately, but I think they unironically have a chance to do something more compelling than Marvel at the moment.

I thought Galadriel was one of the better characters in the show though.

The hottest of hot takes... Or maybe a scathing criticism idk.

One of the leading contenders for the 2024 GOP Presidential nomination

This fellow absolutely cannot handle the gauntlet of a presidential run and will be exposed in short order. He doesn't have Trump's support and his bid will be over before the first (maybe 2nd) debate. Rick Santorum 2.0

Thor: Love and Thunder (Taika Waititi, 2022)

I've got to stop watching these movies. The one part of this film that really works is the villain, played by Christian Bale with the perfect blend of menace and silliness. Everything else is terrible, and especially the writing. I have a hard time believing that the man behind What We Do in the Shadows was responsible for this script. The movie bombards the audience with jokes, and none of them are funny. Not a single one is anything other than annoying. There's a pair of CGI goats that obnoxiously scream all the time. Isn't that funny, Taika asks? No, answers anyone over the age of five, it's just annoying. Taika gives his own character, Korg, a very irritating high-pitched voice, and the sole joke with him seems to be that a rock monster has a voice like that. Isn't that funny? No, it's just annoying. Thor himself is a bumbling idiot throughout most of the movie and rambles like a stoner whenever he talks to another character, in what I can only assume are Chris Hemsworth's attempts at improv. Isn't that funny? No, it's just annoying. Every joke in this movie is fucking annoying. Oh, and the CGi is also terrible, but I expect that from Marvel by now.

The Marvel Cinematic Universe and its consequences have been a disaster for the human race.

Oh no, Saddam has a correct opinion finally. Not sure what this means for humanity.

smoking a brisket though, that should come first. too bad 69% of people do it wrong.

There are different right ways to do it, and lots of wrong ways but the key is to make sure you keep the seasoning simple, get good smoke penetration and take care not to over or under cook it.  I usually do a modified Texas style cook and wrap in butcher paper, but instead of putting back on the smoker once wrapped, it goes in the oven for better temperature control.

I also remove the flat end and use it to make pastrami and/or Montreal smoked meat.

Assume a proper trim to start with, then a light coat of Lawry's seasoned salt. 2:1 ratio of 16-mesh black pepper and kosher salt applied pretty heavy. Obviously, cured post oak wood for the smoke and ideally a decent offset smoker. Wagyu beef tallow is the new central TX cheat, so throw a good amount of that in a tin and smoke it along with the brisket. Clean fire ~225F for the first several hours to get ideal smoke penetration, can also throw some of the trimmed fat onto the fire at this point. Bump it to 250F-275F to blast past the stall. Pour the rendered tallow on the brisket and butcher paper and then wrap. At that point, doesn't matter if you finish on the smoker or in the oven. Once the meat is over 200F and you have that brisket jiggle, open up the paper and let it come down to 170F or so. Then re-wrap either in the old paper or new paper with more tallow. Then let it rest in the oven ~160F for at least 12 hours and you will have created the pinnacle of TX brisket.

I could give you some pointers in being successful in chess, Zork or an IT/technology career but not controls designed to pay Steam hosted games.  Maybe you should get out more.  Play golf, ride a dirt bike, hike in national parks, ski, take nature pictures, swim, fuck chicks, pick wild mushrooms, hunt, go fishing, mow the lawn, eat at the 'Y', build an 8-bit computer, race a vehicle, design an analog acquisition interface, repair the footings in a cottage,  re-furbish classic computers, tile a floor, drywall a ceiling, wire a basement, do some plumbing, smoke a brisket,  build a raised deck, design your own fucking gamer dude interface, weld up a motorcycle trailer, build a race bike, convert a ramp-back utility trailer into a long term toy hauler, create a water system controller for people on low production well systems, manage a staff of 250 people, make a tiny little dent in the world ..

Maybe not.

Go play "V Rising".

tbh ive done about 80% of those things and i will still get a steam deck

smoking a brisket though, that should come first. too bad 69% of people do it wrong.

I'm still upset about the Celtics choking away the title.

It isn't really choking when you never had a chance to begin with.

However, the “love” between Dent and Dawes, thus the tragedy of the latter’s fiery death
