@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:09 PM)

On an unrelated note: I just got the BBTS email about kingdom pre-orders... and even the stuff I don't want I'm perfectly willing to get if it means I can have the rest of it.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 September 2020 - 04:08 PM)

It's digimon. So first one, then the other.

@  TheMightyMol... : (26 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

50/50 odds, it's either a helicopter with limbs, or a scantily-clad human with heli blades on their back. If female, 90% odds on the second one.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 September 2020 - 12:39 PM)

I read that as "Helicoptermon" and wondered what kind of Digimon that was.

@  Bass X0 : (26 September 2020 - 12:35 PM)

Helicopter-mom, transform!

@  Maximus Ambus : (25 September 2020 - 11:58 PM)

Aw I scratched the hood of my 35th anniversary Bluestreak. Fortunately he's in robot mode a lot.

@  Sabrblade : (25 September 2020 - 07:24 PM)

No decoration could improve the wall more than Knockout himself

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2020 - 05:04 PM)

The wall could use some decorating, though. Maybe a nice shelf or a portrait.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 04:32 PM)

I'm laughing so hard XDDD

@  ▲ndrusi : (25 September 2020 - 02:31 PM)

He doesn't even mind this time. You know what? It's comfortable here.

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 September 2020 - 02:23 PM)

AND THEN KNOCKOUT WAS IN THE WALL AGAIN XDDD

@  Bass X0 : (25 September 2020 - 01:11 PM)

is an annoying stage in Super Mario World.

@  wonko the sane? : (24 September 2020 - 02:15 PM)

Gnarly.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 September 2020 - 01:05 PM)

Beast Era, a blonde rat called Sunsqueaker.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2020 - 01:00 PM)

And then Knockout was in the wall again.

@  Sabrblade : (24 September 2020 - 12:53 PM)

Knockout: "Ooh, sorry, Lord Megatron. The correct word was... 'Decepticon'."

@  -LittleAutob... : (24 September 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Knockout: *while doing a crossword puzzle* Lord Megatron, whats a ten letter word for disappointment? | Megatron: ...... Starscream.

@  Maximus Ambus : (23 September 2020 - 01:20 PM)

@Bass X0 Shockwave did it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 11:56 AM)

At least it's not Suntwerker.

@  wonko the sane? : (23 September 2020 - 11:19 AM)

I read that name as "suntweaker" the first time, and was terrified for a moment...

@  Bass X0 : (23 September 2020 - 03:41 AM)

Prowl did nothing wrong.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 September 2020 - 01:50 AM)

Smashy, Stabby, Selfy, and Shieldy.

@  Xero Prime : (22 September 2020 - 08:52 PM)

RunFast, MuckyTrail, TrackBreaker and Sunstreaker

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 September 2020 - 06:16 AM)

Runamuck, Fasttrack, Sunstreaker, and Trailbreaker.

@  Nevermore : (22 September 2020 - 06:13 AM)

Cardboard and plastic.

@  Paladin : (22 September 2020 - 05:52 AM)

@  Telly : (21 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

i dont think theyre due for release until november. at least thats when target says ill get trailbreaker and sunstreaker. thought the wiki says theyre out in singapore

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 September 2020 - 06:01 PM)

@  Maximus Ambus : (21 September 2020 - 04:40 PM)

A few more Bearimy's for Earthrise wave 3 to reach the UK

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 05:07 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (20 September 2020 - 04:42 PM)

@  Spiritofeigh... : (20 September 2020 - 04:38 PM)

Hey, new to the boards

@  RichardT1977 : (20 September 2020 - 02:29 PM)

I had an idea for a Spiral Zone/Go-Busters crossover fanfic...

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 06:35 PM)

I loved what was there, and think it's pretty ripe for "renegades" style reboot.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:13 PM)

It's a shame as I loved Spiral Zone, and the design from the Japanese Toyline of the same name are fantastic, I adore the monowheel motorbike.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 03:12 PM)

Hasbro doesn't seem to have any interest in doing anything with the TV show, haven't greenlit any attempt to rerelease it, and there have been approaches, so I think it may be aother one of Tonka's legal carcrashes where everyone involved owns a piece and it's not really worth anyone sticking their neck out to claim ownership.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I feel that homages and references would be a fun way to expand the GI Joe brand, and give a little love to lines that are unlikely to be acknowledged beyond such capacity.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 01:47 PM)

I was under the impression that Bandai was more the character design aspects, not story or characters.

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:55 PM)

Also isn't it in rights limbo, given how it's loosely based on concepts from a BanDai series much like GoBots?

@  Rycochet : (19 September 2020 - 12:52 PM)

We don't need a Spiral Zone reboot, in a decade or so we'll be living it.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 12:49 PM)

Yeah, but it would fundamentally change the base premise of both gijoe and spiral zone. It's either not the world spanning threat it was, or the zone riders are backed up by a competent force. Either way, you compromise the context of both.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:19 PM)

Akin to what was done with Matt Tracker in 2008.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

Again, not a PURE transplant, but an integration of ideas and concepts into the world of GI Joe.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 12:18 PM)

@Wonko The Cobra Overlord, with help from Dr. Mindbender and Cesspool, develops machines capable of generating a mind-controlling fog. GI Joe stalwarts Flint, Airtight, Lifeline, and Psyche-Out are joined by Colonal Courage to infiltrate these zones and disable the machines. Figures would sport hostile environment suits (Eco warriors cross with Spiral Zone) and make new versions of the mono-wheel vehicles.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 September 2020 - 09:39 AM)

Hasbroverse.2 with bought properties: Bravestarr, Ulysses 31, Galaxy Rangers, Shadow Raiders, Manta Force, Jayce and the Wheeled Warriors, Mighty Orbots, Jem and Bigfoot and the Muscle Machines. Seamless.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 September 2020 - 08:32 AM)

While acknoledging spiral zone would be pretty boss, I doubt they could actively integrate it into anything else: given the scale of the villains deeds.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:03 AM)

COPS, Spiral Zone, Shadow Strikers, Action Man, Centurions, MegaForce. They wouldn’t replicate the old lines, but simply acknowledging their existence would be nifty.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 September 2020 - 08:01 AM)

I would love to see GI Joe become something of a “celebration of action figures”. Hasbro has SO MANY old action figure properties, and many could slot into the GI Joe umbrella with relative ease.

@  Otaku : (19 September 2020 - 12:04 AM)

G.I. Joe, CyberCOPS, and M.A.S.K. all seem like something that would work from Animated or Prime, though CyberCOPS might have been a bit trickier from Prime.

@  Sabrblade : (18 September 2020 - 11:02 PM)

Rik Alvarez originally wanted the last episode of Prime to spinoff into a new MASK reboot.

You have to take the knife out first so he can coagulate.

I don't really bleed much anyway

 

stabed myself in the wrist once opening a new box of chess and bled so little -despite a slashed vane (that required stitches) that I got to sit out in the waiting room for an hour in emergency and then questioned about whether I was trying to commit suicide for another hour... and then questioned again after they convinced my parents to leave the room

 

lol have I told this story before?

 

anywho the doctor wasn't impressed when I finally looked at him and said... some thing to the effect of "look buddy If I was going to slit my wrists ...

 

A) I'd have started with the right one

B) I'd have sliced not stabbed

C) I live next to a major Highway ... this isn't how imma do it

 

can I get my stitches and go now?

Well yeah, if I leave it in he coagulates around the blade and it's a bitch to clean.

Cooking failures: once I started making brownies, then realized I didn't have oil or eggs. Made them with just water. The result was a thin, crater like substance. Still edible and very chewy, and fortunately it was just a cheap $1 box, but still.

My dad can't cook at all. Once he tried making instant mashed potatoes and it turned out like soup. He swears he measured the correct amount of water but to get them that watery he must've put in an extra cup or something! I managed to thicken it up again by adding in oatmeal, tasted ok but my dad & bro didn't like the texture so I ended up eating most of it. Wasn't about to waste food. If my mom's not around, dad lives on take out and microwave food. :D

Failures?

 

Well, not so much a cooking failure as much as a containment failure.

 

Imagine, if you will, a stew pot mostly full of chili, held by the handles to put the extra in the 'fridge for later.  One realizes the 'fridge door isn't open and, rather than putting the chili down and opening the door, attempts to open the door while still holding the chili.  The pot slips from ones grasp and then lands on it's bottom, on the floor.

 

Now, anyone who has ever carried a bucket of something and then dropped it knows that a peculiar thing happens to liquids in this situation.  Normally, if one dropped a quantity of liquid on a surface, it would merely splatter on the ground and be done with it.  However, a liquid within a cylindrical container, dropped on it's bottom will be ejected violently many times the height of the container in an explosive manner.

 

And so it was that a quantity (thankfully not all or even most) of chili was explosively ejected around the entire kitchen, even on the ceiling, all over my pant legs and across the carpet.

 

It took hours to clean up, and the carpet still has a slightly orange-ish tint where the chili landed.

I've got a good failure that the wife will never let me forget. I was cooking a turkey for us and some friends. She was working at the time so I was with my youngest 1-2 at the time. When I put the turkey in I could not find a deep pan. The bird was in a basting bag so I put it on what we had. A baking sheet. *Break for laughter*  All was going fine until the bag was filling with the juices. Still all fine until I tried to adjust the bag and it tore and all the grease spilled into the oven.  Flames shooting out. I close the oven quick. Grab baking soda tear open the oven door toss the stuff in through the flames and yank out Turkey. The whole apartment was full of smoke and the fire alarm were going off. I open windows but smoke  still made it out to the hallway so the entire building alarm went off.

 

Make it short the fire department came and reset all alarms brought in giant fans and cleared out the smoke.  After that I finally found a deep pan hidden. The only plus side was that it was a week before Christmas so we had a giant pine tree air freshener.  

 

Minor flub. I did not have enough eggs making choco chip cookies so I put the batter into the fridge went out grabbed eggs came back and the batter was stiff. Let it warm to room temp but the chips dissolved into the batter so after mixing all ingredients the cookies cooked into a hard mass. :(  Mine are usually really good too.

Biggest cooking failure I've seen in my lifetime was when my older step sister (she was a teenager at the time) made a cake for everyone.  One of my brothers was the first to eat a bite.  His face scrunches up and he says, "Rhon, why is it crunchy?"  "Oh, that would be the egg!  It said to put 3 whole eggs in."

 

I shit you not, my brother puked all over the table.  It was hilarious.  (I was 11 so everything she did was funny to me, because as you can tell, she's hugging airhead.)

When I left home to visit my folks by train, I made myself a lunch: PBJ sandwich, apple, and bag of Snapea crisps. Faciest thing about it was the lingonberry flavored jelly. Heading back home, this is what my mom made:
20141128_081150.jpg
Fried tofu & green onion with light soy sauce, breaded chicken strips, broccoli, 2 tuna onigiri rolled in furikake (rice seasoning, typically with bonito flakes), and 2 strawberries. :love :love :love

Of course! Even instant ramen can be cooking if you throw veggies in it. Or mac n' cheese with cut up hot dogs, spinach, and tomato thrown in.
