How could you not include the world's largest bottle of catsup in Collinsville, Illinois? »
Foods that are popular in each state - and only that state. That's why we have six states listing "grits".
If you want a unique food from Missouri, you've got a couple to choose from (none of which are succotash) - Fried Ravioli (yum), with Gooey Butter Cake for dessert. I can feel my heart failing already. »
All-time favorite apocalyptic tale here. I think it would make an awesome many-night miniseries too. »
Marathon Bars. One of the few candies that you just can't get at all anymore, even through specialty places. There's a company that makes something similar, but it's not the same. Not by a long shot. »
There's an important moment in that episode for the Doctor as well - he has the chance to un-do the entire History of the Daleks. Yet he hesitates, and eventually fails, because he questions whether he has the right to do so. That's something that seems to be missing from much of nu-Who. I miss it. »
The biggest reason I'm looking forward to Capaldi, and it was somewhat justified in this episode, is that since the start of New Who, ever regeneration has had the Doctor appearing younger. 11 was practically a child. I'm looking forward to the gravitas. And the eyebrows. »
That's not Groot. That's Chibi Groot. Give me something that looks like the Groot in the movie, and I'll buy it. »
The Moon is a Harsh Mistress by Robert Heinlein. I've read it more times than I can count, but I'll keep reading it until Mike answers the phone. »
There's a pretty clear signature, Joao Silva (not the photographer, I presume). Probably a good place to start. »
Geez, it looks like it was made in Flash.
Ok, now look, I'm not going to ignore it just based on that - hell, I love RWBY because it's got good characters and story, even though the animation is horrible and the voice-acting sub-par. But as far as first looks go, that leaves something to be desired. »
Came here to say the very same thing. Everything is so tense, just waiting to see what happens when she gets just a little closer to the mirror... just a little closer... and when it snaps to black, you actually jump MORE than you would with anything they could have filmed. »
"San Fransokyo"? Good lord, can't they do ANYTHING without whitewashing? At least Wolverine (whatever variant they called the latest one) actually took place in Japan - is it too much of a leap of faith that a story set in another country might have some appeal? »
