    Which is par the course, they're friggin notorious for underestimating initial demand by a ton and by the point they react the product's been out of stock for months. They're either doing it intentionally to drive up demand and make headlines talking about it(which is a blatantly underhanded marketing strategy) or whatever executive is responsible for predicting initial demand is an incompetent moron.

    Or their previous system sold so poorly, they didn't want to flood the market and have millions of unsold product like with the Wii U

    The NES Classic has become the poster boy for their artificial scarcity practice, the WII wasn't produced in sufficient numbers for like two years, they were so bad about stocking Amiibos that Nintendo America actually issued a public apology, even the WiiU which was a huge blunder did the exact same thing on release(which just shows that it's not even a necessarily successful practice.) and that was coming off one of their most successful consoles to date.

    Edit: I mean it'd be understandable if it happened every once in a while, just an annoying reality that sometimes companies get it wrong, but Nintendo does it EVERY DAMN TIME they release a new piece of hardware. To the point it's become a fool me twice and shame on me situation.

    I remember hearing a bunch of stories about stuff like that around here back in the day. People died of Alcohol poisoning and I was told at the time that marijuana made it where you couldn't vomit, thus accelerating how much the alcohol poisoned you.

    Well, and those two guys who passed out on the railroad tracks, but they don't count for alcohol poisoning death of course.
    I can tell you categorically that you certainly CAN vomit on a combination of booze and weed.

    ... allegedly.

    Netflix Iron Fist question - probably a good idea to use spoiler tags for people who care about such things.

    I understand... spoilers:
    he fights the Bride of Nine Spiders. Now, I'm an arachnophobe. Are there loads of spiders in this scene? Is she like the Pendaran version, or are there no spiders and is that just her name? If there are spiders, how many? Are they tarantula-sized? Are they real, or CGI?
    end of spoilers

    Serious questions, here.
    Why Are We Here?, by Pendaran

    "...the Myths Transformed version of the legendarium, in which the Moon is Melkor's attempt to make his own Arda with blackjack and hookers."
    - Estrecca

    "...dropping an orca whale made of fire on your enemies is a pretty strong opening move."
    - Nik Hasta

    "[Kent] Nelson was nearly invariably presented as the guy who, barring the Spectre, made everyone else generally gasp and go "Doctor Fate don't shiv, he balls nasty.", even Superman."
    - Pendaran

    As a side note, we used to ban people who found out there were arachnophobes and posted pictures of spiders 'to be funny'. Because it's not funny at all, and is basically posting offensive pictures aimed at a specific person (which is ban-worthy).

    Don't know how it's viewed now, but thought I'd mention that just in case someone decides to do something dumb.

    Yeah, you definitely can. I seen it happen multiple times.

    I was out with a mate of mine back in my sober days and he was pretty wasted, he took one toke on a j and then immediately vomited everywhere.

    *snip*
    spoilers:
    Don't worry - it's not like Pen's version. The only spider we actually see as far as I can recall is a tattoo on her neck.

    Oh, and a costume with SLIGHT hints of webbiness.

    She doesn't hurl spiders. She stabs with needles.
    end of spoilers

    Edit: Unless I'm completely forgetting something (DISCLAIMER), but I don't think I am.

    Warning Sharp, there are some spiders shown during the part she is sent a summons and she in her lab. It's brief but in the lab is a glass container with multiple tarantulas and various spiders pictures around the room of varying realism.
