Is that why I found a Yamask in the cereal box?

@  Paladin : (29 May 2017 - 06:29 PM)

taste may vary from person to person.

@  Telly : (29 May 2017 - 06:03 PM)

soylent green toast crunch yummy yummy!

@  D Immortalis : (29 May 2017 - 05:47 PM)

since were pretty sure he ate the other bakers, i figure kids love it because it tastes like people...PEOPLE!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 May 2017 - 04:07 PM)

But have you sighted why kids love the sweet taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunchâ„¢?

@  RichardT1977 : (29 May 2017 - 03:14 PM)

BTW: added a sighting to my recent TR Deluxe Wave 4 post (edited instead of double-posted).

@  Bass X0 : (28 May 2017 - 02:59 PM)

Back in my day, I called them "Mini-Spies".

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 02:06 PM)

Think about the implications of it though, robots in disguise themselves infiltrated and paranoid by the recent shifts in the status quo.

@  unluckiness : (28 May 2017 - 07:47 AM)

I'm kinda glad. A couple tie-in stories aside, Secret Invasion was a mess.

@  Steevy Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:23 AM)

Almost makes you wonder if some of the aborted Micronauts relaunch concept didn't slip in...

@  Whirl Maximus : (28 May 2017 - 07:20 AM)

Titan Masters could quite easily have been Transformers: Secret invasion, the return of the Mini-cons/Stentarians but noooooo, it had to be whatever the pit it is.

@  unluckiness : (27 May 2017 - 07:33 PM)

Even if it's just 4 bucks, people shouldn't be patronizing obvious scams.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 May 2017 - 05:37 PM)

What's the shipping price?

@  Steevy Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 05:18 PM)

Yeah, but it's cheaper than all the Hong Kong sellers running at $65+

@  2017 : (27 May 2017 - 05:07 PM)

It sounds like a scam.

Grax is only invisible when no one is looking at them. No idea what's wrong with your Xort.

@  Whirl Maximus : (27 May 2017 - 04:16 AM)

Titan Masters is filled with false advertising, Grax doesn't make any figure invisible and Xort doesn't do anything with gravity. Maybe they'll be in the Transformer toys of tomorrow which will be actual robots with AI.

Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2017 - 05:29 AM)

OBJECTION

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

"Gaia" is closer to the original Greek (Γαῖα). "Gaea" is a Latinized spelling that stuck around, much like Uranus (Ouranos) and Apollo (Apollon).

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common.


I can vouch for what Monzo said that "Gaia" is more common based on a Google search, although I got different numbers:

Does the file for the movie contain all three parts of the entire Beast Wars Special triple-feature, or just the "Lio Convoy Kikiippatsu!" part?

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

While normally I wouldn't be so quick to trust other sources over on-screen text, we're talking about an English word written by non-English speakers.


That's not actually at issue here; in this particular instance, we're stuck with the "Gaea" spelling because that's how it appeared in an English-language work (i.e. the Sourcebook), which we've also defaulted to for characters (Lio Convoy over Leo Prime, most famously, but also Autocrasher over Autocrusher).

Right, I understand that it's more complicated than than an American cartoon with Korean animators jotting "Gerenal Store" on a sign. But it's still an English word written by non-English speakers. I've seen numerous anime that had mangled English even when it was technically correct, so even if changing it was an option I'd find it difficult to say with certainty that this is the spelling they intended.

 

 

"Gaea" and "Gaia" are both accepted spellings, although "Gaea" is vastly more common.


?

Gaia: 27,400,000 results
Gaea: 888,000 results

 

The Wikipedia article for the goddess is also at Gaia, but I don't know how diagnostic that is.

 

 

I actually got those swapped, sorry. The point was that they're both acceptable, in heavy usage, and have the same origin/meaning. Which... is stating the obvious and of no actual help here... :doh

 

Funny enough, spell check keeps telling me that Gaea is correct and Gaia is wrong.

I'm actually going to have to step down for a while:  Given the recent events That Must Not Be Named For Fear Of Going "Off-Topic", I've decided that it's best if I take a temporary leave from my post as TFWiki sysadmin.  I don't know if that means that a replacement has to be found just yet, but I'm finding that, simply put, I can't invest the time and energy into this.  It seems to me that it's helping at least one company that shows minimal respect towards its customers (and people in general,) and the complacency across the board is making me wonder what I'm doing as a part of this fandom in the first place.

Maybe I have less at stake:  I don't do any work for Hasbro or FunPub.  I don't really care if I have Awesome Industry Access to press events, as any coverage I was providing was just in the interest of doing good work to help friends of mine within the fandom.  Whatever it is, I don't have a good enough answer to the core question of "Why should I spare any more time on this?"  

Since any further discussion would probably get me shouted down as going off-topic, feel free to reach to me via PM.  The Wiki guys have my email address, and that's how THEY should get in touch with me, as I'm more likely to check that.

If he didn't watch out, he'd become one of us - a 'Mormon' or a 'straight,' which is what Clinton staffers called FBI agents, the Secret Service, and former Bush employees."
