Get some extra shelves to store your shelves on.

@  Telly : (22 October 2016 - 08:53 PM)

its the chicken and the egg all over again

@  The Doctor Who : (22 October 2016 - 02:34 PM)

@Andrusi:  Too many toys or not enough shelves, eh?

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 11:15 AM)

Needs more dakka shelves.

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2016 - 08:41 AM)

"Too many toys" for the shelf, you see.

@  Pennpenn : (22 October 2016 - 08:34 AM)

Bah! That isn't too many toys, that's not enough shelf space!

@  ▲ndrusi : (22 October 2016 - 07:42 AM)

You know, too many toys. That thing where you can't figure out how to cram the newest one onto the shelf.

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 October 2016 - 02:18 AM)

When you can't see the floor anymore.

@  Telly : (22 October 2016 - 12:04 AM)

"too many toys". what does that even mean? such a strange phrase

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2016 - 03:46 PM)

He's bought too many toys, now he's gotta play with them all! All aboard the Astrotrain! *choo choo*

@  Bass X0 : (21 October 2016 - 01:13 PM)

Oi, you lot! Treat!

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with bird, and the Word was bird, and bird was the word, and everybody heard.

And the word was God.

@  MEDdMI : (20 October 2016 - 09:51 PM)

bird is the word?

@  Locoman : (20 October 2016 - 09:50 PM)

That's probably the bird, isn't it? That laid the eggs! Livid!

As an outsider, whether Trump wins or loses, the results are bound to be hilarious. Not so much for Americans but you just know the most ridiculous things he will do are yet to come.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 October 2016 - 08:49 PM)

Donald Trump is a firetrucker.

@  Liege : (19 October 2016 - 07:37 PM)

Anyone else having problems watching hulu tonight? The app isn't working on both my wii u and ps4.

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 09:17 PM)

I have a tablet that runs on Wi-Fi only, with all the hotspots or sharing data off my cell, it's hardly ever an issue. Just need to be careful where you connect and what you do on said connection.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:23 PM)

I've considered it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 08:22 PM)

Sounds like you might want to look into tablets with data plans.

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:20 PM)

It's not even the data plan that would be the problem for me. I'd probably use the hug out of a data plan. It's the VOICE plan I can't justify. 8^)

@  Arazyr : (18 October 2016 - 08:19 PM)

I have an iPod Touch and a "dumb" flip-phone on a pre-pay plan. I put $100 on it once a year, and never use it all. I'd love to get an actual smartphone, but just can't justify the expense.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 06:37 PM)

The Moto phones are a good low-price option. I bought my mom a Moto E (her first cellphone, smart or dumb) and she's been really happy with it.

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 06:18 PM)

I've been looking at the Moto G family, personally. Seems like a good way to get a cheap one.

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 October 2016 - 05:59 PM)

For a long time I thought a tablet was good enough for me, and was pretty firmly in the anti-smartphone crowd. But after getting my first one (a Nexus 5), I became a convert pretty fast

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

Probably going to give in on that soon, though

@  Waspinator : (18 October 2016 - 04:56 PM)

I've got a cheap tablet and an old dumb-phone, been too stubborn to pay for a data plan

@  D Immortalis : (18 October 2016 - 03:47 PM)

i dont even own a cell. =]

@  MEDdMI : (18 October 2016 - 03:14 PM)

My cell is about 5 years old. It barely stays alive without any apps running.

@  Gizmoboy : (18 October 2016 - 02:45 PM)

I still play every day. As for what's the point, that's a good question. I still enjoy taking gyms and leveling up my Pokemon though. I'm at 134 on my Pokedex though so I've almost got them all. :)

@  Dracula : (18 October 2016 - 02:41 PM)

My phone hates PoGo, but I still boot it up sometimes, and my wife and several friends are still playing regularly

@  The Doctor Who : (18 October 2016 - 02:34 PM)

I uninstalled it because it kept giving me "app has stopped working" errors even while it wasn't running. It wasn't something I was playing much anymore anyway.

@  Locoman : (18 October 2016 - 02:23 PM)

You'd think that all they need to do to re-invigorate the app would be to start putting in Pokemon from the second generation.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 October 2016 - 02:21 PM)

I poke at it once in a while. Kinda forget about it a lot.

@  Benbot : (18 October 2016 - 02:02 PM)

Is anyone still playing Pokemon Go? I am, but I don't know why. What's the point of this?

I'm standing on a Chilean hillside and it's absolutely magnificent. The temperature is exactly 68 degrees fahrenheit and there is a slight breeze coming from the south east. For a moment, everything is right in the world, but that moment quickly ends as I hear gunfire in the distance. There's been a small war raging in the Republic of Chile over the past few months and the world turns a blind eye to it. Innocents are being killed left and right, caught in the crossfire. The preservation of humanity is my self imposed purpose, and in order to achieve this goal I must stop this bloodshed today.

I propel myself in to the air and zoom across the sky at nearly the speed of sound. I travel the 3.8 miles in under six seconds and land gracefully with relative ease. The combatants are shocked at first by my presense. I wonder sometimes what it must feel like to be human. Immediately I 'feel' their guns, ammunition, grenades, knives - and I call them to me. The shock turns to terror when all their armaments fly out of their hands and off their bodies and converge on mine. Most of them flee at this point, some are so frightened they cannot move. Some even urinate themselves. In a matter of seconds all the metal objects are broken down and absorbed in to my body by the incalculable number of nano machines that inhabit it.

At this point there is no one within sight of me. I believe my message has been delievered in an appropriate manner. I'll continue to keep an eye on this area, but with so many problems in the world right now it's hard to focus on one place. However, I must be diligent. No problem is too small or too large for me to handle. I have appointed myself the protector of this race and intend to watch it thrive and flourish for many years to come.


After a short flight home I'm greeted by my colleague, Nataniel, who appears to be very 'fried' as he likes to call it.

"Sup dude?"

"Hello Nathaniel, how are you today?"

He shrugs. "Can't complain."

"Very well then. I would chat with you longer but I have more pressing matters to attend to."

"Cool man. We gonna beat anybody up today?"

"Perhaps. I'll be in contact shortly."

I meld in to the floor of my domicile, as my unique physiology allows me to do, and travel to the area that has been playfully dubbed the 'Danger Room'. I believe the title is meant to be ironic. As I fully re assimilate myself I see Leslie and Kyle sitting in the floor smoking marijuana out of a pipe, ignoring their duties. Per the usual.

"What's up Vincent? I'm sorry I vomited every where last night but I was just so jivey. You wanna hit this bowl?"

"No thank you Kyle. You know I can't become intoxicated."

"I know, but I still like to offer."

"Leslie, this is the last time I'm going to tell you - don't bring men back here. This place is at the bottom of the ocean for a reason."

"Dude, just chill out. They were cool guys. One of them was for Kyle anyway but he's a bitch and passed out."

"hug off."

Despite my vast intellect I simply cannot fathom why these two bicker the way they do.

"Regardless - if it happens again you will no longer be permitted entrance. Is that understood?"

"Ooookay," they both moan.

"Now, have either of you heard from Michal? What about Joseph? And has anything happened with the situation in Hong Kong?"

Leslie leaps to her feet and with a wave of her hand brings a screen up in front of her.

"There's been no change
