It'd be funny if it wasn't for the subject matter.

Amazing. They might have created actual value for bitcoins, if only as a limited, horrifying political statement.

Hyuuga has the potential to be interesting, but it'd just take so much damn work. He lived through Second Impact, probably served in the military in some capacity (I'm guessing non-combat), and has wicked high classified status in a badass secret organization. He'd be a total bab...

What part of NO POLITICS is it exactly that is so hard to understand? Is it the NO? I'm guessing it's the NO. So we just can't mention any political parties at all, for any reason, even if its just to point out that a particular group of people have started using a term very similar to ...

Agents of SHIELD.

They dropped the ball on the Avengers references, this time. And the Quinn / Graviton arch was retarded. Quinn is bad because he's addicted to exploiting opportunities? Graviton's origin was him falling into a pool of gravity fuel? Bleh.

Been waiting for something like that. Wish they had just sent in some drones and flattened the place.

Apparently my cover letter and resume wowed the relevant persons who are hanging around in HHS and the VA looking at that stuff despite the shutdown. RML
