I like Cancer in Masterforce. Otherwise it's the worst and I don't understand how it keeps getting cast in everything

@  Plokatron : (05 February 2016 - 02:34 AM)

No Cancer is Disgraceful, Disgusting and Despicable! Blasted genetic abnormality thinking it owns the place. I worry for any who have it this year. 2016 looks to be a bad year for cancer sufferers.

Can anyone point me to the wiki topic on what is under animated transformers helmets? I know I saw it a few weeks back. Also it is my birthday! So my wish for the forums is "Everyone take care and be safe" I think that's a reasonable request em?

@  Plokatron : (02 February 2016 - 06:12 PM)

Also I got my new Pc at last.

Anyway I just ordered a copy of Allspark Almanac and the HoS graphic novel. Can't wait to see da trainsformers!

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Very true.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Also rat slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 06:06 PM)

Yes but not Ghost slime. Just human and Bug slime.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 06:03 PM)

It doesn't matter what color slime NYC has, it's still been covered in slime for its entire existence.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 03:05 PM)

Not to mention the series is getting a reboot this year. In July so none of that junk counts.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:32 PM)

Not that kind of slime!!! Has New York ever been pink?! No that city has so much brown that it makes COD look bright and colorful.

@  Smokey : (01 February 2016 - 02:27 PM)

New York's ALWAYS been covered with slime.

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:21 PM)

Also since New York wasn't covered in slime back in 89 it's quite moot isn't it?

@  Plokatron : (01 February 2016 - 02:15 PM)

Stupid ideas that I can't understand why we keep bring it up. Are we humans just that desperate to panic ourselves?

Nope! But in fairness, I was pretty drunk at the time.

@  Paladin : (01 February 2016 - 09:44 AM)

...does NOBODY remember "Ghostbusters 2?!"

@  wonko the sane? : (01 February 2016 - 09:42 AM)

Oh, yeah, the primaries. Yup, that's a thing that's happening. But it won't end the world till new shmuck is elected, and even then it depends on who.

@  Touch My Thighs : (01 February 2016 - 09:41 AM)

Looks like that American preliminary election thing is happening. I don't really get it, something about Iowa and Couscous.

@  MEDdMI : (01 February 2016 - 08:07 AM)

I figured this could be of some help to a lot people. This year, the convention center the con is in is right next store to a giant, seven story mall. This gives people a lot of food options.

First up, is the Food Court, located on level 3.
Ben & Jerry's
Cathay Cathay
Dale & Thomas Popcorn
Gourmet India
Japan Cafe
Johnny Rockets
Le Petit Bistro
Pizzeria Regina
Popeye's Chicken & Biscuits
Subway
Surf & Turf
Taco Bell

If sit down eating is more your style, there are options there as well.
Cafe Nordstrom
Chatters
Dave & Buster's
Fire + Ice
Joe's American Bar & Grill
Johnny Rockets
Napa Valley Grille
Nordstrom EBar
The Cheesecake Factory
Uno Chicago Grill


The mall it self is huge, and you can find out information on it from their own web site and via wikipedia.

http://www.providenc...tml/index10.asp

http://en.wikipedia....ence_Place_Mall

The nice thing about this is convience, though if you want to eat at a local place, you can probally manage that a few blocks from the area too.

Yeah, I definitely need to make a date with some fresh seafood while we're in RI. Maybe a softshell crab sandwich would be nice. icon-arcee.gif

It'll be good to have a lot of places to eat close by, too. When there wasn't anywhere to eat in 2004, I just went most of the weekend without eating. 2006 wasn't too bad, since the convention center had a decent food court and some local places in easy walking distance.

Incidentally, I just noticed the other night that "Cheapside", the bar and grill where a big group of us ate in Lexington in 2006, is featured in a commercial about advertising for small businesses. Anyone else see that?

There are lots of places in Providence to eat, heck, there are a ton in the mall's general area.
I plan on scoping out the best locations before I go. I have to head to Mike's Junk Yard Dogs at least once!
