If you plan it to use it with a sound board you will probably be ok with almost any momentary (non-latching) switch you can find, for Obsidian/Diamond boards i think the switch pin basically just detects if you connect it to the battery minus and for how long, the actual power that feeds the board is through the battery+/- pins > this means no significant current goes through that switch. For switches usually the rating is max current at X voltage - the 3A at 250V AC means you can use it in an AC setup of up to 250V with a current of up to 3A (and you want to have these values larger than your predicted current); switches with led(s) built in (illuminated switches) also have a rating for the led(s), something like 20mA 6V DC(or 12V, or 24V).
Now that being said, you might have some problems with some switches (e.g. very large or very small ones) due to some of their other properties (some of which aren't even listed in the specs) like internal build structure which affects the resistance (the switch acts like a very small resistance) or the way it establishes the physical connection (affecting the de-bounce time) - maybe in other ways (you need to ask an electrical engineer for more details). To be 100% sure you need to ask the manufacturer of the board you are using or you need to actually test it with the board.
But, as I said, you will probably be fine with almost any momentary switch and as a general rule of thumb if you can choose between two switches similar in size/build and price Smiley but with different ratings, choose the one with higher ratings (more V or more A).

If you use it for a stunt or in another similar setup, with a latching / non-momentary switch then you need to take into account the current your setup draws (which in this case will pass through the switch). For example you need at least 6V at 2A to be on the safe side (a LED die usually draws 0.7-1A); but aim as high as you can get away with (cost/size/design wise) for the switch specs (more V or more A).

For those that haven't seen the trailer nor read the series, it's a good intro and kick-start into the comics.  I recommend it and got excited when this was released early last year

I loved Darth Maul, The Punisher and The Power Rangers one. If they had made Power Rangers like the fan film I would finally have watched.

I like The Punisher and Power Rangers ones too but Saban had a suit against Adi Shankar and Joseph Kahn when they released that gritty version of the Power Rangers which I think was dumb since it was pretty sweet.

Even though the Punisher short film was fan made, it has A list actors like Thomas Jane and Ron Perlman which are great actors who made it really interesting to watch

Have you seen the Shattered Grid (Comic Series) trailer featuring Jason David Frank?  It's really good and it's just a trailer, the series is phenominal

I read that too, lol

Looks good to me, I'll watch it but probably not in the theaters since I only watch a few a year

Dealing with PTSD and depression, I find out that just going to do it and not thinking about it helps.  The days that I really don't want to go, I don't think about it and just go which are the days that I really need to go since during and after my workout, I feel much better. The human mind is an interesting thing, you can think an ailment into existence which is why the phrase "Just Do It" by Nike has been used for decades, don't think about it, just do it.
