  1. Arsenal

    An arsenal is a place where arms and ammunition are made, maintained and repaired, stored, issued to authorized users, or any combination of those. Over the centuries, this has included every variant of such a place, whether privately or publicly owned. Armories and arsenals are both places where arms or ammunition may be made, maintained and repaired, stored, or issued. The usage differences between the names is mainly a matter of historical linguistic development. It is a common principle in natural language that synonyms have subtle connotative boundaries.

  4. Dr Silas Stone:

    ... What you can do now, Victor. Your physical strength is just the tip of the iceberg. The tip of the tip. In a world of ones and zeroes, you are the absolute master. No firewall can stop you. No encryption can defy you. We're all at your mercy, Vic. From our power grids to our telecommunications, everyone's lives are controlled and dominated by complex digital networks that will bend, without effort, to your will. The fate of the world will literally rest in your hands. Its entire nuclear arsenal, you could launch with a thought. The world's monetary systems and its complex interactions will seem as easy to manipulate for you as a child's plaything. The question-- No, the challenge... Won't be doing it. It will be not doing. Not seeing. It is the burden of this responsibility that will define you and who you choose to be. Victor... Victor, these are the words and deductions of a scientist. That's how I've been speaking to you. Now... Let me speak to you from my heart, not as a scientist. As a father, --your father, twice over. I brought you into the world, and back to it. You can't imagine how proud I am of who you are. Always have been. So many years with you I wasted. So many wrongs I've left un-righted. Everything breaks, Victor. Everything changes. The world is hurt. Broken. Unexchangable. But the world's not fixed in the past, only the future. The not yet. The now. The now is you. Now. Now's your time, Victor, to rise. Do this. Be this. The man I never was. The hero you are. Take your place among the brave ones. The ones that were, that are, that are yet to be. It's time you stand, fight, discover, heal, love, win. The time... is now.

  5. City manager:

    Arsenal don’t have a better manager that can lead this club in this year and the next, i don’t have to give publicly my support because he has it. He’s one of the best managers I’ve ever worked with and seen. I’m pretty sure he will turn things around and perform like everyone expects. When a club comes from not a good period, it needs time.
