Hey Flex!


In the Treadmill vs. Elliptical machine debate what do you think is better? I really like using the elliptical, but I was told recently that it doesn't do anything. I did a little research and it seems like just as many people are in favor of the elliptical as are against it.

How does swimming stack up against the machines?

Black Panther / Re: Oprah Winfrey, Black Panther and Storm

I think Oprah's endorsement of Storm would be enough without Halle Berry. Anyway, Halle chose her Oprah time to promote the GOD AWFUL cat woman movie. Remember when she was on their swinging that god damn whip around? That sh*t was a whole hour, and she didn't say jack about Storm.

We could start a letter writing campaign explaining to Oprah why she should show Storm and BP some love. Even if she only spoke about them in O magazine. It would be dope to see RH holding down a segment on Oprah talking about our favorite couple. I mean if Tyler Perry can get a whole hour...

Wow Reg, what aren't you involved in?

I like MF, I especially enjoyed the part on the plane with the gay couple, and the painting in the babies room.

Where a 13-year-old is involved, there IS no consent. Period.

I really don't understand why this is still an issue in America. Grown person + sex with a minor= jail (at the very least). Whether the kid was down or not. As far as I know that is the law, but it seems like there are always people who defend the adult.

Once in college I tried to go 72 hours without sleep.

I think I got to about day 2 before I started seeing stuff.

You hallucinate if you don't sleep too? Man, I thought I was the only one.

Wow! They finally got him. I hope they are able to prosecute him within the full extent of the law. I don't know if they can get him for running but I hope so. I can't believe that celebrities still act in his movies, and praise his work. Hollywood seems like such a f*cked up place.

I'd say Storm is an A-Lister. You can sort of say she's had her own comic with X-treme X-men. That lasted 46 issues plus annuals and two X-Treme spin offs, and Storm was the leader of the team for the entire book, and heavily featured. I also think that I read a while back that Storm has been on more X covers than any other X-Man. I'm pretty sure I read that in Wizard. Maybe Rutog can help?

I've noticed that Marvel tends to put her on covers even when she's nowhere to be found in the book. Take the Astonishing X-Men annual for example. I don't know if that's a testament to her popularity or her ability to make the book look a bit more diverse.
She's always in the games, ads, and cartoons, but strangely rare when it comes to toys in these past few years.
I'm not sure where she stands.  :-\


I agree that she more than likely A-list outside of comics,  but inside not so much.. Astonishing X-Men annual? Are you talking about Giant-Size Astonishing X-Men.




If so then every characters that was on the cover was in issue, but most didn't do much (she had about 4-5 lines in it. which was more than most) IMO she the most well know & well like female character outside of comics.


My bad I'm talking about the X-Men Legacy Annual. The one that just came out.

Wow, who even knew they had medical magnet schools.

How upset would the fanbratti be if Marvel created two new animated series called "Storm and the X-Men" and "Black Panther and the Avengers?"


However mad they would be I bet they would still watch.

Another question that puzzles me, since we are talking about poverty, is: Why does the focus seem to usually be on the urban poor?  What about the rural poor?  Does nobody care about them? Or are there differences between the urban poor and rural poor, in terms of the nature and magnitude of problems that are observed? Or are the problems the same? Do the rural poor still hold to more traditional values? Or are they as messed up as everyone else? Or nowadays are there just fewer of the rural poor, so they don't get the focus?  Just struck me as odd that everyone talks about the "urban poor" instead of just "the poor." There may be reasons to treat the two populations differently. So I thought I would share the question.




Maybe nobody talks about them because they're not as visible. Although I have noticed a surge in the tv specials about the people of the Appalachian mountains.

The rural poor are stigmatized. You know, people believe that they are dirty, stupid, prone to incest and bestiality, hunters of animals and humans alike (see Deliverance). They are abject, so far outside of the understanding of mainstream society that they are cast off and forgotten as if they are not human. That's why its not even considered politically incorrect to make jokes about them.
So there's no big fuss about trying to help them because the things that people believe about them are things that are taboo in our society.

Sleeping with someone of the same sex use to be a lot more taboo too. When AIDS was considered the Homo disease nobody really cared until it started spreading to "straight" people.

And En Vogue still looks amazing - arguably the best of all:



Yeaaaaah, our women definitely age better than all the rest.


En Vogue looks better now than they did back then.
The original picture came from Astonishing X-men.


Ooh, that narrows it down...

PM me that comic link? I want to go back in time and reminisce about when the Black Panther was a real warrior and Storm actually existed.



Yeah sry 'bout that.  Its Astonishing vol. 3 #25
