Re: Has anyone done better?

Largely agree, Dance. Margaret Court is the greatest female tennis player of all time. I say that despite its political incorrectness because of her stance on homosexuality, which has made her a pariah in a notably liberal tennis (and modern) world. (Note that I am not discussing that subject, just ...

Has anyone done better?

I have slowly become convinced that Rafael Nadal's twelve French Open titles in fourteen years is the single greatest achievement in sports history.

What would you say is comparable ... or even exceeds it?

That's not the single stupidest attempt at humor I've ever seen ... but it's in the Hot 100.
It made me giggle!

And you, sir(us), are forgetting the one point that should ease your concerns.

Re: Trailer: VERY SPOILERY FOR END GAME

Well, considering that they managed to ruin Electro in Garfield's second Spider-Man movie, using Mysterio seems a major gamble to me.

Marvel's consistently exceeding expectations, though.

When Bagdad Ruled the Muslim World: The Rise and Fall of Islam's Greatest Dynasty, by Hugh Kennedy

It's about the Abbasid Caliphate. And I don't necessarily agree with his assessment of their relative greatness, frankly.

Re: Avengers: Endgame - Trailer

Well, remember how awestruck Gamora was with Thor in Avengers: Infinity War ? She couldn't help but caress his muscles, much to Quill's consternation. Now that she, an earlier version of herself, doesn't have love for Peter as a restraint, and assuming Thor regains his godly physique (which I imagin...

Note that this was written for the most part before JaceRidley's last few but posted afterwards. I was actually at the cardiologist.

Asked, "Is Thor Stronger than the Hulk" ...

... I went on a bit of a rant. The issue’s become a joke, now. Writers are regularly powering the Hulk up. The original Gray Hulk. Savage Hulk. Joe Fixit/Neo-Gray Hulk. Professor Hulk. The Maestro. World War Hulk. World Breaker Hulk. Nul. Immortal/Devil Hulk. No doubt there are others I missed. Hone...

Re: STAR WARS - EPISODE IX Trailer

How about we call it a draw and just shut up about all of this? Traditionally, in serious chess, one offers a draw when holding what is believed by both sides to be a slightly advantageous position. If not, it's often considered by your opponent to be at best amusingly ignorant and at worst an insu...
