"Yoders Bacon is ready to eat and not just for emergencies. It’s perfect for camping, the family barbecue or anytime you need bacon in a flash. Each can of Yoders Canned Bacon contains about 50 slices of cooked bacon packaged for long term storage. It has a 2-year manufacturer shelf life guarantee and up to a 10-year shelf life. Just warm up and eat!"

967 I think Wii Sports and Mario Kart are required. The sports games were some of my favorites and I'm not much of a sports fan at all. I'd also add a vote for any of the Lego games (pick whichever movie franchise you like the most) and also suggest Zelda (adventure RPG) and Animal Crossing (cute world building game). It's really amazing how well the Wii has hung in over the years. It's a (relatively) ancient console but tons of people still enjoy it - used games should be marvelously cheap and easy to find.

967 Anybody watched it? The first two episodes are available free online at the link below but you'll need a subscription to MTV through your cable provider to watch the rest.

The series is a post apocalypse/epic fantasy hybrid with a setting similar to Terry Brook's Armageddon's Children, but there may be some other books he's written that the series is based on - I'm not familiar with all of his work. I did just finish Armageddon's Children and thought it was fantastic.

The TV series has a good plot and excellent cinematography and CGI, but the dialogue and much of the writing, unfortunately, is definitely written for an MTV audience - lots of pretty people and shallow, ham-handed sexual tension. I'm expecting a love triangle in the third or fourth episode.

I have too many lists."

I loved Leviathan Wakes . Great space opera. It's turning into a long series, though. Still good, but I feel like I have too many other authors I want to read. Have you started watching the SyFy series yet? The first 4 episodes are available for streaming until next year - I'd read the book first though.

It has a 100% chance of being vetoed when it hits the President's desk. He has said as much. Feinstein has already introduced those gun control measures as a separate bill - the only reason she tacked it on to a Republican-led Obamacare repeal bill is so that she could cause the GOP to lose face. It's political grandstanding or, if you like, politics as usual.

If it makes anyone feel any better, Democrats recently squashed a bill that would have improved mental healthcare in prisons and would have prosecuted felons and fugitives who failed background checks during an attempt to buy a firearm. There is currently zero follow-up on failed background checks.
967 The Flight 462 episodes are just starting to get good, aren't they? The Asian girl definitely seems to know how people turn. All the episodes are here:
967 I loved the book but it's turning into a huge series and I try to keep away from serials. I haven't seen the show yet but I'm excited that people here are giving it good reviews!

Although she was being a brat, I kind of like her character. She's clearly proficient at surviving outside the wall - she'd be a good addition to the Rick posse if they can get her head straight.

I'm telling myself she didn't know Glenn was under the dumpster until he came out.

They didn't really explain why she was crying on the watchtower, did they? Maybe she is realizing she lost him after he lost his purpose in life.

967 S.J. wrote: "Something that has bugged me for quite a while is the use of the term "suicide bomber", for somebody blowing themselves up among a crowd of people. Please refrain from using this term as a "suicide..."

The problem with trying to change the word now is that the term has been established. I remember in the early 2000's there was a concerted effort by some elements in the media to change the term to "murder bombers" or "homicide bombers" or something, but whenever it was used in interviews the host would have to explain what that term meant and why they were using it instead of "suicide bombers". It was an obstacle to discussion. Although it's imperfect, everyone already knows what the term "suicide bomber" means; they know it refers to someone who is trying to kill others and that killing him/herself is not the primary objective.

The same issue is present with the use of the term "assault rifle". Media refers to all models of AK-47s and AR-15s as assault rifles, but the proper term for civilian models of those guns is "sporting rifle". Only the fully automatic versions (most commonly used by the military) are actually assault rifles. Think of all the times the media has used that term in reference to a mass shooting in the US. If we're gonna get particular about it, though, there has never been a case of an assault rifle being used in a mass shooting in this country.

967 That blood is coming from the wall that they reinforced after the truck crash. My guess is that there's a crack or weak point there, and the walkers are getting squished into it.

But, once unleashed, they just beat the dickens out of them in the body, just as they've always done to other prisoners."

Oh man, that may have been my favorite scene of the season - the prison shanking. Awesome comic relief! XD

967 Haha, that was a tall walker. I'll give her points for going with the broken bottle - that's style.

967 Two years in the zombie apocalypse and she still doesn't know to hit them in the head.

967 I'm still unsure about Morgan's personal philosophy. They didn't actually show him kill the Wolf; just hitting him, regardless of what he said. Would make more sense to take a prisoner, and the prisoners fate would set up a good point of conflict between Morgan and Rick.

The pistol Morgan is carrying could just be his holdout gun for zombies.

Lots of room underneath that dumpster...

967 I think those 5 Wolves who attack Rick in the RV might be the same 5 that Morgan let flee from Alexandria.
