    OMFG awsome!!!!!!
    vs wolverine was less of a fight between them, but was more accurate to his origin AKA how he got the adamantium. wolverine tore though people how he was ment to,
    deadpool was really funny too ;p
    Vs Thor, i didnt think this would have been good, as i assumed good vs evil, thor being the good, and the usual outcome, but this wasnt predictable at all
    what i dont get is wolverine seemed to do better against hulk then a god ;p
    wolverine is tough, but he gets to much writer love.
    overall
    really good animation, voiceing, and story
    both are 35-40 mins, no filler moments, great pace and really enjoyable
    id say 10/10 for enjoyment

    Don't eat peanut butter, FDA official warns
    Nationwide salmonella outbreak has killed 6, sickened hundreds
    msnbc.com news services
    updated 10 minutes ago
    WASHINGTON - Federal health authorities on Saturday urged consumers to avoid eating cookies, cakes, ice cream and other foods that contain peanut butter until authorities can learn more about a deadly outbreak of salmonella contamination.
    "We urge consumers to postpone eating any products that may contain peanut butter until additional information becomes available," said Stephen Sundlof, head of the Food and Drug Administration's food safety center.
    But most peanut butter sold in jars at supermarkets appears to be safe, Sundlof said.
    Story continues below ↓
    "As of now, there is no indication that the major national name-brand jars of peanut butter sold in retails stores are linked to the recall," Sundlof told reporters in a conference call.
    Officials are focusing on peanut paste, as well as peanut butter, produced at a Blakely, Ga., facility owned by Peanut Corp. of America. Its peanut butter is not sold directly to consumers but distributed to institutions and food companies. But the peanut paste, made from roasted peanuts, is an ingredient in cookies, cakes and other products that people buy in the supermarket.
    “This is an excellent illustration of an ingredient-driven outbreak,” said Dr. Robert Tauxe, who oversees foodborne illness investigations for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
    So far, more than 470 people have gotten sick in 43 states, and at least 90 had to be hospitalized. At least six deaths are being blamed on the outbreak. Salmonella is a bacteria and the most common source of food poisoning in the U.S., causing diarrhea, cramping and fever.
    Officials said new illnesses are still being reported in the outbreak investigation.
    The Kellogg Co., which listed Peanut Corp. as one of its suppliers, has recalled 16 products. They include Austin and Keebler branded Peanut Butter Sandwich Crackers, and some snack-size packs of Famous Amos Peanut Butter Cookies and Keebler Soft Batch Homestyle Peanut Butter Cookies. Health officials said consumers who have bought any of those products should throw them away.

    The Peanut Corp. of America plant is seen on Thursday in Blakely, Ga. The company voluntarily recalled peanut butter produced at the plant, pending the outcome of an investigation of a salmonella outbreak.
    Peanut Corp. has recalled all peanut butter produced at the Georgia plant since Aug. 8 and all peanut paste produced since Sept. 26. The plant passed its last state inspection this summer, but recent tests have found salmonella.
    Health officials are focusing on 30 companies out of a total of 85 that received peanut products from the Georgia plant. Sundlof said Peanut Corp. is a relatively small supplier on the national scene.
    The Midwest supermaket chain Hy-Vee Inc. of West Des Moines, Iowa, said Saturday it was voluntarily recalling products made in its bakery departments with peanut butter because they had the potential to be contaminated with salmonella. The recall covered seven states: Iowa, Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, South Dakota and Minnesota.
    The outbreak has triggered a congressional inquiry and renewed calls for reform of food safety laws. For example, the FDA lacks authority to order a recall, and instead must ask companies to voluntarily withdraw products.
    “Given the numerous food-borne illness outbreaks over the past several years, it is becoming painfully clear that the current regulatory structure is antiquated and ill-equipped to handle these extensive investigations,” said Rep. Rosa DeLauro, D-Conn., who chairs a panel that oversees the FDA budget.
    Seattle-area lawyer William Marler, who specializes in food safety cases, said the government shouldn’t wait for the results of more tests to request recalls.
    “At least 30 companies purchased peanut butter or paste from a facility with a documented link to a nationwide salmonella outbreak,” said Marler. “The FDA has the authority actually, the mandate to request recalls if the public health is threatened. Instead, the FDA has asked the companies to test their products and consider voluntary recalls. It is just not enough.”

    WHO: More research on foodborne ills needed
    Health officials in Minnesota and Virginia have linked two deaths each to the outbreak and Idaho has reported one. Four of those five were elderly people, and all had salmonella when they died, although their exact causes of death have not been determined. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said the salmonella may have contributed.
    An elderly North Carolina man died in November from the same strain of salmonella that’s causing the outbreak, officials in that state said Friday.
    The CDC said the bacteria behind the outbreak — typhimurium — is common and not an unusually dangerous strain but that the elderly or those with weakened immune systems are more at risk.

  13. Sledgstone liked a post in a topic by Saiel in Fallout 3 is superb (no spoilers)   
    Because I've put 45 hours into Fallout 3 in the past week, I feel the need to share its unbelievable awesomeness with other gamers. Simply put, it's amazing, no matter what type of gamer you are.
    RPG fans will be pleased by its constant rewards and wide variety of skills and story paths. FPS fans will be treated to an action-packed world which seamlessly combines run 'n' gun with worthwhile character interaction. Sandbox gamers can run about the world all they like, doing quests in any order and finding new surprises across the vast wasteland. Linear players will have distinct objectives and paths to follow, taking them directly through the storyline and any subsequent events they wish to pursue. It's all-encompassing, utterly enjoyable, and unexplainably addictive.
    If you haven't thought about picking this one up, I suggest you seriously consider it. I can't think of any genre of player who will not be satisfied in some regard--and I am utterly, entirely satisfied. Just writing about it is making my mouth water with Fallout anticipation. Play it. It will start a flame in your heart.

    So this is what you all want.
    - Shit happens that causes the earth and all it's inhabitants to die. In the end the common message would be "You will all die and theres nothing you or your governments can do do about it so just accept death and go cut your selves you emo loving bastards".
    This is what Hollywood has done in the past.
    - US government sends people into space to stop meteor while tossing in romance and a crazy person.
    - US government builds underground bunker for only a select number of American people. Random romance between two teens is thrown in.
    - The earth freezes but the Mexicans and Southern country's save the world and become the new super powers (viva la Taco Bell!). Some romance between two teens that go to school with each other.
    - Aliens come to earth to make contact with humanity (ie. The USA). Humanity responds with gun fire and angry words. The world is almost destroyed but saved by love....
    - Aliens make contact with the world and enslave it. Years in the future 1 man stands against this superior race and manages to free some of his fellow humans to take back the world. Romance tossed in this as well.
    - Aliens come to earth and attack it but some random black guy from the air force and a hacker, who's only real job is to hope that the Aliens have windows 95 installed on their mother ship so he can install sub7 on it, save the planet. Oh don't forger romance.
    - Monkeys take over the world, one man saves it. Romance...romance....
    - Over sized Lizard attacks US/JAPAN numerous times threatening to destroy the rest of the world if nothing is done. The Government or some random Joe manages to save everyone as well as hook up with someone romantically. The lizard either dies or just walks off into the ocean never to be seen again.
    So here's what we're probably gonna get if it follows the current trends from the past 10 years.
    1) Romance and lots of it.
    2) Goverments trying to stop whatever it is that's going to cause the earth's destruction but they fail and go into hiding while making romance.
    3) Impact - all hell brakes loose, special effects that the producers hope will distract people from the obviously train wreck of a story their watching. Romance everywhere, people die while having romance.
    4) The after effect - damage has been done and life begins anew with whatever and whoever survived. Main characters start popping out baby's like in cavemen days since civilization as we know it has been destroyed. If theres water then they build a raft out of the baby's.
    5) People in the space station are laughing and shouting that they managed to survive but then realize their stuck in the space station until they run out of food and have to eat each other. One will go crazy and kill them all.
    5) Ending credits with Arrowsmith or some other popular "end of days" band playing a catchy rock song in the background.
    Box office hit or miss (ie. Clover Field). People will like it or they wont.
    But in all seriousness this sounds like just a get rich quick movie. They clearly just went off of Internet hype that's been escalating these past few years. Why else would they say check out google for 2012 lol? I really am hoping for a good movie though. If they can pull of a realistic depiction of the end of the world I'd be amazed. I think Alfred Hitchcock was the only one that's done a decent job and making me thing 'Oh shit that would suck to have happen to me' several times.

    I got an email about this today so I did a little research. Here is what I found. I figured I would post this anyway just in case some of you did not know about this.
    You may have heard this, or noticed that these products have been removed from the shelves.
    Discard these Medications
    subject: Phenylpropanolamine
    Stop taking anything containing this ingredient. It has been linked to increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication.

    Update: Most if not all of the products listed above which formerly contained phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride have been reformulated to eliminate the ingredient. Consumer questions about phenylpropanolamine and its potential health hazards may be directed to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration at 1-888-INFO-FDA.
    Some manufacturers of over-the-counter medicines containing phenylpropanolamine have offered refunds to consumers who purchased the products before they were voluntarily recalled in late 2000. To inquire about the availability of such refunds, dial the 800-number for consumer questions listed on the product packaging.
    Comments by Carla Homan: This email has it mostly right. In November 2000, the FDA issued a public health advisory about phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride (PPA), the drug mentioned in the email. This drug is found in many over the counter (OTC) medicines, specifically in cold and flu remedies, as well as appetite suppressants. The drug will likely be banned, but because this process takes time, the FDA issued the health advisory in the meantime and manufacturers are voluntarily recalling and/or reformulating medicines containing PPA.
    The main problem with this drug is that it elevates your risk of having a hemorrhagic stroke, especially with (but not limited to) first time use among women. Because the uses of PPA are not serious enough to warrant taking even that small chance, the FDA recommends that you stop taking any medications containing the drug.
    Rather than looking at a limited list such as the one contained in the above email, you'd be better off checking the package of any cold, flu or appetite suppressant medication for the drug, which will appear in the list of active ingredients and may be listed as phenylpropanolamine, phenylpropanolamine hydrochloride, or phenylpropanolamine bitartrate. Many manufacturers offer several formulations of their cold and flu remedies, some of which do not contain PPA. Pseudoephedrine is an effective alternative to PPA for use in cold and flue preparations, but unfortunately, there is no approved alternative OTC drug for use in appetite suppressants. Therefore, if you are using any OTC medications to suppress your appetite for weight loss or other reasons, you should stop using the medicine and talk to your doctor about getting a prescription drug instead. Additionally, some prescription decongestants and cold and flu preparations contain PPA, so if you are using any prescription medicines for these purposes, talk to the prescribing doctor to see if you should continue using the medicine.
    One word of caution: Though the email states your risk is for "increased hemorrhagic stroke (bleeding in brain) among women ages 18-49 in the three days after starting use of medication," don't think you are safe if you've used the drug for longer than three days. The three-day window was merely one of the guidelines used in the study that prompted the health advisory; for the study, they defined PPA exposure as having used PPA within three days prior to the stroke. Risk of stroke may be present after three days of use. For detailed information, see the final report of the Hemorrhagic Stroke Project, Web-published by the FDA.
    As always, your best resources for reliable information on medicines and medical conditions are your own physician and pharmacist.

    That was my first post here on AC, roughly 4 years ago. Can you believe that it's been four years since I was that random YYH loving kid just looking around the net for more info on the series? Let me get to point it has been 4 years since I joined the Ancient Clan, with that said I love this place. As a kid (15 at the time) you guys welcomed me and all my grammatical errors and allunto the board and made this a fun place to hang out and grow. I learned about flaming and why I shouldn't do it especially on subjects that I didn't know as much as some others on here (Strider and our old Gundam debates lol).
    I've met a lot of people on here whom I consider friends. Even though I've been sorta on and off the last year or two it is good to know that I can always come back to the AC and find everyone and everything I love about it still here.
