  1. ...Ahem... So I am willing to tone down "most" to "many". Yes, many children died from childhood illnesses, but many also died from common living conditions. I recall, very well, that while visiting the historic, Salem homes in Mass, they had poles to leash children so they wouldn't play too close to the large cooking-fire. Also, before indoor plumbing, many people would gather water from local ponds and rivers. They could slip in the muddy shore and find their wool clothing weighing them down in almost, freezing water. So, water was an easy place for people to drown. Finally, speaking of children putting things in their mouths, naturally, bright colors on plants and animals is frequently a sign of being poisonous! So imagine a small child who finds bright berries or wild mushrooms and then to poison themselves because Mom nor Dad was not directly watching their children.
  2. You laugh now but if you are a kindergarten teacher, and you have a child with undiagnosed pica ( see https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pica_(disorder)), well you can feel grateful of child safety laws when you discover that the said child pilfered a crayola markerin order to sneek off and suck out the ink. Sigh... Go on and feel morally superior, but remember, a few generations ago, most humans did not make it to ten years old before dying of something we would find shocking.
  3. Ooooooooh! I want to buy another box set, JUST to do that project! That was a great head swap.
  4. Have you thought about buying the Privateer Press Trollblood paint line? That is my plan.
  5. I have not painted Han, but whenever I paint blonde hair, I always start with a yellow oxide or ochre. Then, I mix it with some yellow and then some ivory. Funny enough, if I skip the yellow, this makes a decent linnen color pallette: This is perfect for Luke's clothes. I should post some of my own figs. None are as good as Sorastro
  6. Meanwhile, teachers are getting paid less (per hour), than an In-and-Out employee. This is also considering the fact that their unions are constantly fighting to get a cost of living raise after 10 years of stagnant wages. ...Because we all know, teachers are lazy slugs.
  7. On a slight tangent, if you are stunned, and it is that model's activation, could it remove the stun with the first action and then move or attack on the second action?
  8. I am eagerly awaiting a Jaba set. I would probably squeal like a 7 year old girl if I could see gamorean guards, rancor monsters and whatnot. Inspired from the opening scenes in Episode IV, we should see boarding missions and tiles. Also, I would get pretty excited to see all the odd aliens from the bar scene. Finally, I want to see several more wookies!

    Check amazon. They list the most popular purchases if you look at any x-wing model
  10. As a kid who grew up on Star Wars, I have never seen a military victory for the empire. The closest thing equated to a military victory was the battle of Hoth. ...yet was it the perceived victory? I am surprised no one has mentioned the Wired articles on Star Wars: http://www.wired.com/2013/02/battle-of-hoth/ What do you all think?
  11. As a HUGE fan of Ultima I, II, III, IV as well as a fan of Wing Commander 1 and 2, I'm a little surprised about this. When was it announced that fuzzies, Exodus, and the Avatar were in the same universe as the Kilrathi? Please show me a link that proves the connection? That said, I too recall how Ultima 1 had a tie fighter dogfight. Ahh the memories of my days in the mid to late 1980s.... Playing Ultima all summer long and listening to New Order or the Pet Shop Boys... Wow! That makes me OLD!
  12. Spoken like someone who never customized his/her car. Do a quick search on hot rods in the 1950s, 60s, and 70s. For that matter, search the bootleggers of the prohibition era. Even today, all those 4-banger coupes can become quite fast with some new camshafts, or a changed gearbox. Just removing some of the "nice to haves" like a back seat can reduce the weight and make the car faster.

    Fleet scale

    I would love to play a fleet action game with stands of fighters representing an entire wing or squadron, and not an individual pilot. Oh how cool it would be to command an Imperial Star Destroyer against a Calamari Cruiser.
  14. Back when I was in college, we played "the most SUGGESTIVE lines from the movies". Here is a link of the best lines: http://www.killermovies.com/forums/archive/index.php/t-336530-sexually-explicit-star-wars-quotes.html Don't click if you are easily offended.
