      Driving South on PCH from (gorgeous) San Fran back to LA but hit a road block at Big Sur and got a room. Can hear sea lions across the road.

        I didn't so much forget about the roadblock as much as just not know what I was supposed to do. The last highway turnoff is actually 2 hours north at Monterey which made for a lot of backtracking this morning, but also a chance to see what I had missed while driving after sunset.

        I thought it was pretty bad too. I don't care much about the characters, not that big of a fan. It's the disjointed, questionable direction that makes it a bad action/sci-fi movie to watch even just for kicks imo. Weird pacing, awkward jokes in serious scenes, etc. There are cool moments but it felt like they didn't come together as a whole. Hard to explain without spoiling, but yeah... Worse than TFA for me :(

      It looks like Disney bought most of Fox, I think that means the X-Men can join the MCU.

        @Mystic I don’t think Disney would have made a movie like Logan either. Marvel did make a pretty violent and brutal Punisher series though

        Take the time to go down to Big Sur from the Bay area on Hwy 1. It's cut off from going farther south due to massive mudslide, but is well worth the trip to experience the rugged coast line.

        Also, like previously mentioned, go see the Red Wood forest further north, one of the most amazing things to see in the world, truly peaceful and breathtaking. Don't bother the hippy mafia in that neck of the woods, they can be rather ornery if you infringe on their pot plants if you wander off the beaten path.

        Along Los Feliz there are some beautiful homes and you’re close to Griffith Park and the observatory to the north. South is Hollywood and LA

        Glendale is nice. It does get hot because you are at the base of a mountain. No more fire hazard because much of the hills burned this summer.

        Go with a CU that has a branch close to you. Don't need an ATM that way. They can handle wire transfers. Banks are corrupt entities. Look at all the fines they have to pay.

      " for fuck's sake not all abbreviations are acronyms... "

      Soulmate! lol.

      It is so simple to get this one right, but perhaps people think "acronym" sounds clever and abbreviation doesn't, so the correct word is discarded and will be lost.

      Mind you, I say, "Essbaff," so, to me, it is indeed an acronym
