Especially if it's an escort mission.

I can't believe I forgot one of the core rules of video games. When the question is "They can't be that stupid, can they?" the answer is almost always "Yes they can".

@  BlackMax : (26 August 2016 - 04:55 PM)

No no no, ~finger~prints!

@  ShadowMan024 : (26 August 2016 - 04:43 PM)

I'd say "Goodnight, everybody!" but no one's made an innuendo yet.

@  Bass X0 : (26 August 2016 - 04:39 PM)

Goodnight out there... whatever you are!

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 August 2016 - 03:27 PM)

Your spouse's brother is a PRIEST. If you were supposed to get hit by lightning, it would've happened by now.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 August 2016 - 11:31 AM)

Now I want to make devil's food cake with holy water just to see if I get hit by lightning or something.

@  Pennpenn : (26 August 2016 - 10:10 AM)

I hope not. Ruins the flavour.

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 09:09 AM)

Did I put garlic or holy water in it or something?

@  Dracula : (26 August 2016 - 07:45 AM)

Cake? My only weakness! *bursts into flame*

@  MEDdMI : (26 August 2016 - 05:15 AM)

Happy Birthday! *rolls a giant cake into the Shoutbox*

Oppa Homeless Style?

@  LV! : (25 August 2016 - 01:01 PM)

That guy had a perfectly nice home, he just didn't want the neighbors to see you with him.

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 August 2016 - 11:52 AM)

Did you at least buy him dinner?

@  Robowang : (25 August 2016 - 11:14 AM)

So I was making out with this random old homeless guy, and he stops and is all like "Why are you making out with me?" and I'm just like "Shut up, Homeless Guy."

@  Benbot : (25 August 2016 - 07:34 AM)

Aren't we the ones causing trouble for Kalidor?

@ TheMightyMol... : (24 August 2016 - 03:20 AM) Why do you hate yourself? -- I don't, really. Whether good or ill, I'd like to know how RG1 goes so, if nothing else, I can actually talk about it from a place of experience.

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:58 PM)

I've seen Minority Report, I don't want to read the same thing except with superheroes and also shit

@  Verity Carlo : (24 August 2016 - 06:57 PM)

You know, what I hate about Civil War II the most is that it's not even trying to break out of the Minority Report shaped hole it's in.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 02:39 PM)

the debate sems to be over.

@  MEDdMI : (24 August 2016 - 02:37 PM)

Wouldn't it be easier to debate this in the comics subforum?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:31 PM)

I don't have anything else to say (although I still think G2 is the true ending, even if G I Joe doesn't mention it, it seems G I Joe/G2 crossover isn't canon for G I Joe comics but only for the Transformers continuity)

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:29 PM)

ok whatever you won.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:27 PM)

that's why I said "if", I dunno I didn't read G2 or G I Joe. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:26 PM)

Also,you're still basing this entirely on G2 matching a storyline that was part of G2 itself rather than whether or not G2 matches better with the G1 comic proper.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:24 PM)

The idea kind of falls apart when it requires that the apocalyptic alien invasions had such little impact that everyone easily just ignored forever.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:17 PM)

If some issues of G I Joe comics is a prelude to G2 and if there's nothing in the future G I Joe stories that condradicts San Francisco getting destroyed, yes I would say they share a continuity. 

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

If you're gonna go "we can assume it did happen even though it's never talked about as long as nothing specifically contradicts it", then surely it's just as easy to assume that the actual G1 TF and Joe crossover happened in the backstory of Classics and RG1.

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 01:02 PM)

also I refrained from mentioning Ask Vector Prime but but didn't it say RG1 is a splinter timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 August 2016 - 12:58 PM)

has san francisco ever appeared in G I Joe stories that was chronologically set after G2?

Wildfires in southeast VA

Wildfires in the Great Dismal Swamp are continuing to spread.

The story is that a thunderstorm that rolled through on Aug. 4th sparked off a wildfire in the Dismal Swamp. The fires quickly moved to the underground peat layers where they are out of reach for fire crews. Despite the best efforts the fires are still spreading and with no rain in the forecast there is no telling how long this will go on.

This isn't the first swamp fire that I have seen but it is one of the worst. The smoke today was getting so thick a times that it was hard to see even moderate distances. Even now as I am sitting inside my house all I can smell is smoke and I am almost 50 miles from the fires. So far, I haven't seen any reports of human casualties and the fire is still within the wildlife refuge so no homes are being threatened. There is a lot of concern for the welfare of the animals within the refuge.

This is a pic I snapped while I was at work earlier today. It doesn't really do it justice but the haziness you can see is due to all the smoke.


and this was at a time when it looked like it was getting better.

It would be really nice to be able to breathe normally again. icon-screamer.gif

We just got pounded with a very heavy downpour this afternoon here in Northern VA, but I guess none of that moisture is going to make it all the way down to Southern VA.

I wish we would get some of that rain. Last I heard they were saying that we would need at least six inches to smother all the hot spots.

Some of the latest news. is showing that residents as far as Baltimore are experiencing heavy smoke clouds.

The fire itself is now up to 6000 acres and is being reported as the largest fire ever to burn in the Great Dismal Swamp refuge.

The last few days the air around here has been pretty clear. The wind has shifted and appears to be sending the smoke to the north.

Baltimore? Really?

It's raining up here in Fairfax county today, so I couldn't see smoke even if it were in the sky. The past few days have been clear blue skies, though.

Well we had a couple of clear days but after the some rainstorms today the smoke came back worse than ever.



This looked just like a foggy night except we don't have the conditions for fog. This is really becoming a serious public health problem and I don't know what can really be done about it.
