In a cookoff I think the Spanish Flu wins just for name recognition and established recipes. I mean what does C food even taste like?!Hawki said:
Have you seen what the C-Virus does to people?!Hawki said:
I can see that it might not be YA, but that also means that the Kingkiller Chronicles means to be mature but ends up reading like rather average YA. I mean, The Hunger Games books are far better at managing not only their protagonist but the overarching themes and comes off as much more mature to me, despite being actual YA.Agema said:It's not YA. I've had the misfortune to read some YA hiding in the SF&F section, and it sticks out when you read it.
Kvothe is, however, an incredibly annoying protagonist. Even when he turns out not to be totally ace at something (yet?) it's more like a token something he's not good at.
Don't read Christopher Ruocchio's Empire of Silence if Kvothe annoyed you, either.
I like Travis better than either Rey or Kilo, but I'm going to give it to the space wizards. Cuz they're space wizards. Also, their lasersword doesn't need to be jacked off regularly.CoCage said:Travis Touchdown vs. Rey or Kylo Ren.
Global economy. It may take a few years but it'll come back eventually. Economies aren't really based in reality anyway.Marik2 said:Krusty because of his laugh and he has more recognition.

In a staring contest its a tie because Kung Flu doesn't have eyes, and Sweden is an artificially walled off geographical region, and doesn't have eyes either.Marik2 said:Me. No contest.
Kung Flu vs Sweden
They double KO each other.Marik2 said:Colbert's Ching Chong Ding Dong Foundation for Sensitivity to Orientals or Whatever for being super offensive.
Right wing corporatist guy with dementia vs left wing corporatist guy with dementia.
Spike is good, but John Wick is made of iron and racks up a body count in the triple digits in about a week. So John Wick, but it will be a hell of a fight and Spike might just take John with him.twistedmic said:Spike Spiegel vs John Wick- Fight takes place on Earth.
Don't know either of those, but based on this and the other thread, that Kvothe is basically perfect at everything, so I'm going to bet on the Marty Sue. Afterwards the Bhaalspawn becomes an ally because Kvothe is just so perfect and defeat means friendship.Gethsemani said:Kvothe vs the Bhaalspawn just prior to the fight with Amelyssan.
Hmmm. I'm going to approach this by assuming they're at the age at which they wrote their most famous works-- so a 53-year-old Adam Smith (having just written Wealth of Nations) and a 30-year-old Karl Marx (having just co-written The Communist Manifesto).Chimpzy said:Adam Smith vs Karl Marx (in actual fisticuffs)
I'm gonna go with Sekhmet. The greek pantheon had Athena as an objectively better version of Ares. Sekhmet by contrast was so hardcore that Ra had to find a less ferocious bodyguardSilvanus said:Hmmm.

Since I can't see anything about Smith being a bodybuilder or fitness enthusiast on his Wiki page, I'm going to give it to Marx.
The Egyptian pantheon's Sekhmet vs. the Greek pantheon's Ares.
