It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.

You know what's handy about having a Non-Hardcore Ascension? You can get the Drowsy Sword early in the game. And the Drowsy Sword delevels monsters by 10 just by equiping it, and even further deleveling every time you connect with it.

Made the Bonerdagon pretty easy to beat.

Yeah, I'm thinkin' I'mma skip the whole El Vibrato thing, go ascend (if not for those damned Daily Dungeon keys, damnit) and start over as a Turtle Tamer. Under a Wombat, I think.

Disco Bandit is nice, but I wanna swing some of these clodhammers I've got here. That, and finally smith up these penguinskins.

Yeah, the Order of Wossname is LONG. If you're going for it, don't screw around, do it as fast as you possibly can.

Took me a week to pull off.

And double-check that you've got yourself a flaregun, that's the secret trigger to get the double-kill.

AND LOG YOUR KILLS. Not adventures, kills. Depending on sidequests, your faction racks up some extra kills for you. You have to knock off EXACTLY 999 of each side to trigger the final showdown.

BUT!

On any ascension afterward, if you're not going for the Wossname award, and if you're getting some decent drop rates... Slaughter some frat boys as a hippy, then go do the junkyard sidequest. THEN turn around and start fighting the hippies.

If you complete the Junkyard quest as a hippy, the the hippies get instances of Bailey's Beetles, VW bugs. They get some of the BEST drops in the game. Floorboard cruft, which, while disgusting to handle, does 100-120 Stench damage, and stuns the target for two turns of combat; And Battered Hubcaps, which are off-hand shields, giving you +15 muscle, +100 (Yes, one hundred) HP, and So-So resistance to ALL elements.

By the time I was finished slaughtering the hippies, I had over a dozen hubcaps, which made for some great karma handing them out to mid-level n00bs, and a trunkload of floorboard cruft, what made a lot of fights a whole lot easier.

Crazy little turkish delights. If you can get a hand on em they're a giant help. GIANT help. You dont get many adventures (~1-3) but you get like 30-40 myst stat for just 1 fulness... it really adds up.

I'm a Turtle Tamer and haven't ascended yet, but I'm currently having the same problem. I was using a Ghuol Whelp for a while, but I recently switched to a Sabre-Toothed Lime to see how that one works out.

I'm idling in my third ascension. Killed off all the frat boys and did all the side quests as a hippie, but now I've turned around and I'm clearing out the hippies too, just for the loot. I think I'm at thirty-odd hubcaps now.

Gonna softcore perm the Super-Advanced Cocktail Crafting, do a run as a Seal Clubber to get double-fisted skull smashing.

I've yet to do a Myst ascension, though. Do another run as a DB and perm Torso Awaregness before I go that way, and gather up the last few bits for my Ninja Pirate Zombie Robot. Or... Whatever the order for those things are.

And if you're looking for a buffing familiar, hit some turns South Of The Border, get an Irate Sombrero and Poultrygeist, paste them together for a Hovering Sombrero. Sombreros do better as stat buffers, when monster levels are higher; At equal weight, the break-even point is ALWAYS at ML 100.

Someone spent a LOT of time and a lot of very high-level math to crunch out all the formulae out of a massive pool of results. I'm kind of amazed at that, from an academic standpoint.

Well hello there! I haven't seen this thread in a while.
Yeah, I've been bumming around in there... but i was way too low leveled to actually do any good.
I made it through the sewers... but the hobos are pretty evil... and painful... even when i was at level 16.
eh.

So instead i decided to reascend (after spending the last of my adventures making bandages and stuff in Hobopolis (people can use them as a spell like action on their turn) and I actually got awarded an item from there cause someone was nice enough to give me their double (or maybe third i dunno) of an item for my effort... but i'm in hardcore so i cant play around with iiit x-p

anywho. yes.
