And I had one. The Spider-Man, Aquaman, Captain America, and Green Hornet costume sets I had were fantastic. (Never got Sgt. Fury- after all, I had G.I. Joe to wear military uniforms!) I also got Action Boy; be darned if I can remember what outfits I got for him- Robin was one, if I remember correctly. » 8/18/14 12:07pm Monday 12:07pm

I'm an ultrasonographer, specializing in evaluating the human vascular system for over 38 years, and currently manage ultrasound services for a phlebology group. A little public education- arteries have a pulse, because of the heart. Veins don't, and move blood as you breathe in and out, and walk and pump the blood… » 8/18/14 8:25am Monday 8:25am

Bah. The instructions are very clear, the pictograms excellent; if you don't like to screw in screws, get an electric screwdriver- speeds things up dramatically and saves your palms and wrists.

I will admit that I very much enjoyed it. I kind of missed the ornithopters with flapping wings and was a little puzzled that the Fremen didn't have hoods (big waste of the body's water) but I loved the visuals, especially the shield combat, and warmed up to the Weirding Modules as an interesting variation weapon.… » 8/16/14 7:12pm Saturday 7:12pm

The original lyrics for the well-known kids song "The Big Rock-Candy Mountains" deal with depression-era hobo fantasies, and the kiddie version changed the lyrics substantially. For example: "The buzzing of the bees in the cigarette trees" "...little streams of alcohol come a tricklin' down the rocks...", "... lake… » 8/15/14 9:57am Friday 9:57am

Reportedly "Live, Die, Repeat" was the second choice when they chose not to stick with "All You Need Is Kill"- then some brainchild came up with "Edge of Tomorrow" which was a totally bad title (I still say that title sounds like it was promoting a mashup of two old soap operas.) » 8/15/14 8:14am Friday 8:14am

I'd like to see MODOK as well, but you know he'd wind up being a little more gnarly-looking rather than Kirby-esque. His origin would have to be grim enough to gross out people as his head mutated and his body wasted away. Though I don't think the idea of him starting out as the Mechanized Organism Designed Only for… » 8/13/14 6:04pm 8/13/14 6:04pm
