1) I wouldn't call that a tantrum. They're just disappointed.
2) it's about the upcoming Jurassic Park 4 that's in preparation, not the 3D re-release of the first one. I don't think anyone expected a makeover of a 20 years old film. This is Spielberg, not Lucas !

I like the talking about stuff setting even ie on fire, and then the next part being a cloud that dissolves human tissue (I would guess all organic tissue really) - I see a horror film coming up with a sentient Hydrogen Fluoride cloud.

Actual exchange that took place last night when I swung by home depot after work:
Home Depot Cashier Lady: "Who comes to Home Depot dressed like a model?"
Me: "Huh?"
HDCL: "You're all GQ'd up! What you gonna repair dressed like that?"
Me: "Uh, I just got off work. I'm an engineer, this is what I look like when I go to work."
HDCL: "Oh, OK. Man... most folks come up all covered in paint and grease and crap."

<-- has doubts to if HDCL ever saw a model :P

Isn't there already a Stephen King movie/novel based on the same kind of thing?

When my Dad was at University, he had some friends studying Geology. Apparently their professor's finger tips had lost all sense of touch from the HF used to dissolve the quartz away from fossils and other minerals.

HF is really, really nasty stuff.

"UR BAD! U NO GEM DEFENSE!"

"uh, that was removed from the game like 2 1/2 years ago."

"U STILL BAD!"

I got a 'WTF, Mate?' from a healer on the champions of the thunder king group quest after I died to a botched pull on the first try. Said healer, and the hunter who also complained, couldn't stay alive for the remaining 2 bosses. Good times. That quest may be getting skipped unless I have a premade... reports are not good on PUG groups.

This is what my wife said too. She then declared herself totally unbiased :P

edited because I realized I actually posted a pic of myself here a while back:
I did kinda look like this first picture (except the black jacket was a light outoor jacket and I was wearing wire-rimmed safety glasses), so not your usual Home Depot walk-in: viewtopic.php?f=19&t=6334&p=726105#p726105

The healers couldnt keep us up on Wind Lord (despite him being solotanking it since when he had 470 ilvl).

When I checked the meters... I just couldnt facepalm enough.
Essentially had 2 healers below my paladin friend in healing done, and like 6 dps below 50k dps.

I just realized what sort of raid we got in and we both left.

Just for note, the 2 tanks:
Not avoidance capped warrior:

Not defense capped paladin:
