    Are you refering to box office success or quality of the movie?
    Never mind. I'll just share my perspective on both.

    Fiction- Not many people (especially non Marvel fans) have even heard of Black Panther. Therefore, I doubt Black Panther will do better in terms of ticket sales.

    Also fiction- Civil War was a pretty good movie. Lots of action with a decent plot. It would be hard for Black Panther to top that.

    I'm actually going to say fact. Depp just does the same drugged up drunk guy act in most movies.

    Fact or Fiction - Craft beers haven't been around that long.

    Fiction. Depends who you are. If you're a homeless person etc I imagine it's pretty dreadful

    Fact or Fiction - Only nicotine harms you not cannabis.

    EDIT: Also that's interesting what you said about Craft Beers, I didn't really know myself. Also yes, poncy beers are kind of pointless. I usually drink cheap polish beer called Tyskie as it's very cheap, just tastes like lager and fucks you up. Admittedly stuff like Hobgoblin tastes better but it's really expensive.

    I don't know I'm medically trained to answer that but my thought is fiction, I get the feeling Canabis is a lot easier on you when used in moderation than nicotine but I've seen some pretty burnt out friends from it at times so I anecdotally it certainly does have some negative effects when overused.

    On the craft beer topic, I like some of the things people do, things like milk stouts are really cool and then there are people who infuse amazing flavours but I don't really get the overly bitter taste of your standard craft beer, not really that interesting just a harsher taste than normal beer.

    Fact or Fiction Kurt Cobain killed himself.

    Fact. Courtney had nothing to do with it.

    I have a friend who believes weed is good for him. I only smoke nicotine but very very occasionally smoke weed. It's a lot harsher on the lungs and I believe, if anything, it's worse for you. Sure, I used to love weed but I almost hate it now.

    Fact or Fiction - A can of 500ml beer is less than a pint.

    So wouldn't 550ml be more than 500 so it is a fact?

    Pots or middies as they are called down your way are 285mls, schooners are 425mls up here and pints are 570. Well that's the way I have them at work, anyway. I know SA call their schooners pints. Well they use to.

    I would say racist. Anyone who does things like that I think are racists deep down. At least have some type of hate towards a certain race.

    That's a tough one because if they can make films about space (Science Fiction lol) couldn't they just fake the whole thing? Damn. Well, I'm going with fiction for now but who knows.

    Also, I love Pantera for the music, but yes, Phil Anselmo is a dumbass.

    Fact or Fiction - The US government flew the plane into the trade towers in order to start the war to gain more oil.

    Ergh I have no idea but I'm going to say hopefully Fiction. It's ridiculous how much money they make. I can run too, but I don't get paid for it so I'm gonna sit on my lazy fat ass.

    Fact or Fiction: It's snowing outside my house.

    Fact, you're in Northern England of course it is.

    Fiction - If you really live in Aus, no, it is not raining. Obviously it does rain, just not very often. My grandma is Australian and my uncle lives in NZ (Where it rains more often admittedly). That's just a guess though. I could be wrong and there's some kind of thunderstorm going on.

    F-F: I need more beer!

    Probably fiction, though it's far more plausible that you might want more beer.

    Fiction - I prefer medium to well done but really dislike rare. I'm not an animal, I don't eat raw meat. It's opinion though.

    F-F: The snow hasn't gone from outside here.

    Also, I ended up not needing another beer so you were right. I just went to sleep.

    Probably fact. A lot of it is already, and technology seems to be heading that way. What I don't understand, is if they can make phones automatically update with time etc even if you're not connected to the net, why can't the net just be free for everyone? I know, you're paying for a service and all... but still. Maybe in the future!

    You were wrong, the snow had gone by the time I woke up, completely.

    Going to take advantage of the way you've worded that. I know for a fact that Patton is supposed to have a broader range than Axl but as you said better, not wider, I am going to say fiction because for quite a lot of his range you couldn't pay me to listen to Mike Patton. Axl's range might be a little bit smaller but I can listen to him through the full range.

    Fact or Fiction: rock music has been effectively stagnant for at least the last decade.

    Fiction. You obviously have not been listening to Octane. There have been a number of new artists and new music that has come out in the past few years that has been really, really, good.

    Greta Van Fleet, From Ashes To New, Gemini Syndrome, Through Fire, Bring Me The Horizon, Red Sun Rising...Just to name a few.

    F/F: The (gasp) fucking Patriots will win another Superbowl this year.

    I didn't mean individual bands. I still maintain I've heard nothing genuinely new for a long time in rock music, in the way that grunge was new, and even something like nu-metal, but anyway, I digress.

    Sadly FACT, but I hope I'm wrong on that one. Fuckin' Pats.

    Don't know anything about either.

    Just wanted to ask Prime what he's got against Patton? Dude's amazing. Ok, Admittedly some of the Fantomas stuff is a bit TOO experimental but even if you just like FNM you gotta realize how good he is. I'm not saying he's better than Axl, as that's subjective so I guess you were right. I would probably choose GNR over FNM as well, but scientifically Patton has a better range that's all.

    No, scientifically he's got a wider range. Better and science don't go together at all.

    I don't hate him but singing outside a certain range it's intolerable. Sounds like tiny animals being murdered. Within more standard limits he sounds fine.

    EDIT: I don't know, but I would guess that it's unlikely they'll make a movie as good as Rogue One in that franchise for a while, so with the odds I will say fiction.

    Fact or Fiction: American beer is like making love in a canoe - fucking close to water.

    Yeah. I'm sure Chris Cornell has a wider range than Layne Staley, but I couldn't care less. It also helps that Jerry Cantrell is a great guitarist of course.

    Fact I think but I like Budweiser quite a lot... and you can say the same thing about Carling (4%) or Carlsberg green (3.8%)

    Fiction: Many of the most popular/widely known beers aere are "watery", but there are many American Beers that rival any imports.

    Samuel Adams
    Brooklyn
    Dogfish
    Fat Heads
    Shock Top
    Sierra Nevade
    Great South Bay
    Blue Moon
    Goose Island
    Lagunitas
    Leinenkugel
    Yuengling

    It's just that you foreigners think only of Budweiser, Coors and Miller as American beer.

    F/F: The Hamburger is the best hand held meal/sandwich type of food. (pizza excluded)

    Depends what we're being relative to. Relative to all of space? That's a fiction. Relative to what would be there were it not for us? Fact.

    I'll say fact. We human beings; terrible litterers.

    Fact or Fiction: Spring and Autumn are better than Summer and Winter.

    Fact that cheesecake is the best dessert.

    Fiction that the Han movie will be better than Rogue One.

    Fiction on hamburger or cheeseburger being the best hand held meal.

    I say fact on Spring and Autumn being better for the simple fact of how much I loathe summer. Fucking hate these three months. Would much rather be living where you are right now. Winter is by far my favourite.

    Mini fact as I'll go with just a regular hooker! Lol.

    Well the only real evidence we have is the time they faced off so I guess it is official that it's a fact Prime is a better writer than 'Plan

    See! I'm not the only one who thinks so. Lol.

    Well partly fact. I'm German so you can be petty but it sucks here right now cause of the heat. Can't stand it. But doesn't suck as much as Great Britain as a whole that's for sure...

    Fact or Fiction: If 'Plan and Prime ever square up again, 'Plan will once again lose.

    That has to be a fact, but mainly because you'd have to be less than completely human not to give me the win just for the fun of it.

    For me, fact. I find that even if I try to have a lounging around holiday and don't book to go anywhere I will end up setting up a bunch of projects for myself around the house, it is normally pretty fun but not exactly exclusively lounging around. That said it is very much different strokes for different folks and I know some people who will book a weeks holiday when a video game comes out and will just binge it for a whole week.

    Fact or Fiction - Snow holidays are better than beach holidays.
