Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 04:34 PM)

That moron is a shame to his profession.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 09:34 AM)

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

@  Sabrblade : (20 January 2018 - 09:21 AM)

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

(It's Sunday here in the U.S.)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 January 2018 - 08:40 PM)

Maybe?

@  Patchouli Kn... : (19 January 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Netherlands? We got one hell of a storm here in Germany the other day too.

Also true.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 04:54 PM)

What ya getting?

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 04:38 PM)

Yay! My package from BBTS is in canada! I might even get it this week!

Kara's high and mighty speech about James being too human to be a superhero like her might have had more weight to it if she hadn't just recently teamed up with a whole slew of superpower-less human heroes on another Earth a little while ago.

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.

Actually, Alex may make it worse.  All the anxiety Kara has regarding friends and loved ones who go into danger already, she's projecting on the two she thought were relatively safe but who are now throwing themselves into danger too.

Hate to dig up an old issue from when the show first began, but Kara's concern for James putting himself in danger might feel more justified if the guy actually looked like his less-macho comic counterpart instead of looking like (as Sean Whitmore put it, back on Page 9) a guy who could "bench-press a Buick".

Okay, we know that the M'gann that came into the DEO with J'onn was the first impostor, and we know later than both Winn and Alex get captured and impersonated by each White Martian, but what doesn't make sense is when the lights go out after J'onn fights the fake M'gann, there's no time for either Alex or Winn to have been grabbed, carried off, tied up, and replaced all before we see everyone grouped together during lockdown. Either Winn or Alex had to have been a fake from the very beginning of the scene before the fake M'gann is exposed, but that still doesn't leave any time for other one of the two to have been switched out when the lights went out.

Why even assume that the imposter had to be one of the people in the room? J'onn later tells the two agents to "take a team", so there's obviously other people in the base.

Why did Alex change into her tactical wear to have a heart to heart with Kara? I thought that was a hint that she was a Martian, but nope, the real one was dressed that way too...

As a spelling Nazi, that "CORE STABLIZED" alert bugged me :p

Poor J'onn... :'(

Headcanon: until and unless contradicted, the new alien love interest Lyra is the CW-verse version of Comet/Biron.  In Super-Horse form, she's a small green pony.

I seriously thought that Winn was going to wake up with a hundred eggs in his stomach after his date with Lyra. But if it's a real relationship that has nothing to do with Kara, then good for him.

Because I was curious, I checked the social media accounts for Hamilton, and none mentioned this show, so Mon-El and Mxy weren't fighting on the real stage. (I guess it makes sense that, with all those sold-out performances, there's no time to have a TV show messing around in their theater.)

I only just noticed this, but doess Kara go to the DEO dressed in civilian clothes that often? That's not smart...

Even though the CGI wasn't the best, I loved Kara fighting the Jor-El statue, that's exactly the kind of nutball stuff that should happen when Mxy is around.

Regarding the theater, it was probably a local one in Vancouver they used.

 

I had the same thought about Kara.  Why is she waltzing around the DEO in her civies?  Does everyone know her secret identity there?

 

Did someone forget that she has a secret identity since most of the main cast (if not all of the main cast) know it?

 

I also wondered why Winn went to the alien bar alone?  Granted for story purposes, but would a normal human really go there that often?  Especially when the drunk aliens seem more dangerous than the average human drunk.

Does skipping out on a date and going straight to a booty call two nights in a row, while barely knowing each other even count as a relationship?

Good intentions or not, right now, Winn is just her lovesick boy-toy.
