It's too bad it's like this because some of what they're doing with tiny cars is pretty cool, but I'm not willing to sign up for that f-ing hassle.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:13 PM)

At this point I'm trying to decide how much of a markup I'm willing to pay some scalper scum or if I should just say to hell with it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 September 2019 - 02:11 PM)

That is pretty much the constant story with Hot Wheels. Anything you might actually want has most likely been picked clean and marked up.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 02:02 PM)

I've been watching some Youtube Hot Wheels videos out of boredom and discovered there exists a new car that just came out maybe a month ago that looks just like one I had when I was little, and I've been looking around hoping to get it. Slim picking everywhere, but online there are a slew of sellers asking for 3 and 4x the retail price, plus a hefty shipping markup.

@  Benbot : (18 September 2019 - 01:59 PM)

Oh, that explains the problem I've encountered with finding one little car

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 September 2019 - 01:31 PM)

Oh boy. I work at Target, and literally every single morning, there are two or three guys outside who make a beeline straight to the Hot Wheels.

Which collecting community has the worst scalpers?

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 September 2019 - 09:55 PM)

I've never read the source material and don't know much about it, but I enjoyed the first film quite a bit, and found the second alright

@  Sabrblade : (17 September 2019 - 09:49 PM)

The first movie was definitely not for me. I flat out hated it. Didn't even bother with the sequel.

@  Maruten : (17 September 2019 - 05:02 PM)

I liked the first movie a lot and enjoyed the original volume of the book, and the way they were developed in parallel was really interesting. It all got super extra unpleasant as soon as they went back though. I don't remember really whether the initial sequels are "good" or not, but either way both the second movie and the second run of the book quickly demonstrated that the property sure wasn't for me.

@  Paladin : (17 September 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i have a real hard time offering praise of anything connected to an utter shitstain like Mark Millar.

@  Rycochet : (17 September 2019 - 01:23 PM)

Kick Ass 2 was okay for what it was, a sequel to a film that was okay, just okay. It had a good performance from Nic Cage while the sequel had Jim Carrey who decided he didn't want to promote it after one of america's regularly scheduled massacres.

@  Benbot : (17 September 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Was Kick Ass 2 really that bad? I never got around to seeing it, but after watching the first movie again the other day, I'm thinking about it.

If you owe, you're expected to actually pay it at the time you file, before they even process your return

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 September 2019 - 11:10 PM)

If you file electronically, I find you usually get your refund within a couple weeks

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 06:22 PM)

Well, lucky it took less than two months for me. For a little over 200 Euros.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Pretty much, yeah. Canada revenue will be all up your ass if you earn less than 200K and owe tax, but your refund is basically "duke nukem forever".

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Whereas if you overpaid and they have to refund you, they will take their sweet time to let you know.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:34 PM)

Like, here in Germany, if the tax authority responds to your tax report quickly, you can rest assured they want more money.

@  Nevermore : (10 September 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Do tax authorities in other countries base their time to respond to filed tax reports on whether they owe or are owed as well?

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 11:13 AM)

Check what the requirements are for your cad program, and try to beat them by about 20%, and understand that software requirements have been stable for a few years: not really keeping up with the advancements in hardware. Unless you're doing something SPECIFIC which requires ludicrous amounts of power, just give your self a cushion on hardware and don't bother going whole hog.

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 10:16 AM)

What I'm currently using is an i5 2018 Surface Laptop. My current desktop is all but dead. I think in the end affordability will win out over specs. I need to use CAD programs, but I'm a student, not a professional.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 September 2019 - 10:06 AM)

Okay. Whats the specs on the I7 and what are you currently using?

@  Benbot : (10 September 2019 - 09:23 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (09 September 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Depends entirely on what you use the computer for.

@  Steevy Maximus : (09 September 2019 - 11:52 AM)

@  Benbot : (09 September 2019 - 09:39 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (08 September 2019 - 06:32 AM)

Shouldn't be. I literally just built it. Not even three weeks ago even.

@  TM2-Megatron : (07 September 2019 - 10:13 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 07:37 PM)

Dunno, crucial says it's fine, gonna need a second opinion.

@  Pennpenn : (07 September 2019 - 06:52 PM)

Good luck! (or break a leg if it's like theater luck...)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 September 2019 - 06:46 PM)

Alright. The damages now seem to include my primary SSD. Thankfully, the gaming drive (I have now lost all my games and mods entirely.) Let me wipe it and install there. Once the crucial utility is installed again, will verify the drive.

Hes got a good decent amount of Articulation. Yet not enough to do a few poses Id like to get out of him like resting his hammer over his shoulder and there doesnt seem to be a figure stand port on him to try to give him a way to simulate his charging rush. Also his head is limited to looking down forward and side to side. Due to his neck looking up without swiveling to one side is out.

He comes with his Hammer, the Lion Head arm guard, his energy shield, and two stands to help sit the shield.

Overall I feel he could be a tad better. But what we get for now is still pretty cool.

He doesn't have an alt helmet-less head?

I picked up the Sombra figure the other day. She's really nice looking. But her collar/hair get in the way of alot of potential poses. Also due to the way she's designed, she has no shoes so her feet are feet shaped and dont balance her well. Should have come with a foot base at least.

I had Rein preordered through GameStop ages ago. They seemed to be the only ones preordering them until just now. Pulse only put them up when they were available. BBTS just started preorders a few days ago.

Was thinking, once they get to Bastion will they bill it as a Transformers crossover?! And that spawned an idea with a Hasbro inspired Halloween event. Soldier 76 dressed like Duke, Reinhardt as Ultra Magnus/ Bulkhead, etc. I doubt it would happen but it could be a fun set of skins.

After sitting in my Battle.net account for almost a year, I've finally played some Overwatch!  I had more fun than with Fortnite, the team based aspect helps balance out my suck, though I think I DID do halfway decent as a support with Baptiste in my first couple rounds.

I play more Fortnite than Overwatch at the moment, because Fortnite's cross-platform play means I can team up with my daughter. 

 

But my heart will always belong to Junkrat.

Haven't picked up anyone from the first wave of figures yet because the character choices don't really excite me. But wave two, oh my.

Junkrat and Zarya? Yes please. They look spectacular.

I've only tended to grab characters I play regularly in game. So just Rein and Lucio so far. I occasionally play Reaper but I'd rather get an actual Reaper figure than Blackwatch Reyes. And I've actually held back on the PhaMercy 2 pack only due to going on my X-men Legends kick recently. That said despite liking how Junk and McCree look as figures I probably won't pick them up as I really don't try to play them much. And I avoid Zarya like the plague as I've never been any good with her. Also seems the next two packs are Hanzo and Genji and Tracer (Posh skin) and McCree (White Hot skin)

Hopefully we'll get Roadhog in the big-figure spot, and is easier to find that Reinhardt.

I've never seen Rein in any store except Gamestop, and even then he was tucked away up on a high shelf.  The associates on duty didn't even know he was up there!

Zarya's a must get. Still waiting for Actual Reaper. Why are they holding back on him? Possibly building a wave around him?


But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.
