This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

A damn fine piece of sentimental Hollywood boxing!  Probably the best of the Rocky sequels (unless you have mad, mad love for the robot maid from IV.)

The fight sequence jolted my memory of something, though I couldn't quite place it until I got home.

IMAGINE:  It's the grim, far future (of the eighties!)  Mankind has so devastated the biosphere that civilization lives on only in fully contained arcologies ruled over by cyborg tyrants.  Roving gangs of disaffected youth seek the only thrills they can find on illegally modified electric scooters.  And the entertainment of choice for this dystopia (of the eighties)?

Well, take a look for yourself.

Domestic disputes, apparently.
No one was ever put in a history book for being a great conformist.
