@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:59 PM)

I've barely used them over the years, so I'm sure they won't miss me, but I'm done too. Thankfully Pulse put up the Seacons today.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:58 PM)

i didnt complete it, which is why this is confusing and pi$$ing me off. theres no record of it in my order history. i emailed them about it, so we will see what happens. either way, i think im done using them after this

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Either we're both unlucky or they're trying to force payment now for these takaratomy mall exclusives.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I asked them to kindly undo that and I got a sternly worded email about how I should use their website right.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:55 PM)

Yeah, if you completed the order, they charged you the money now. Mine said stack before I finished checking out. I only noticed I was charged because of Paypal.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

i wasnt even wanting to pay now. i was going to add them to my stack but i didnt get the chance after i was done setting up paypal

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:53 PM)

If you haven't officially placed the order, I don't think so? Although, I had to request a cancellation with them last week because their system changed details about my order after I placed it, so I don't exactly trust them.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:51 PM)

so im not actually being charged then?

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:48 PM)

So, if you were one click away from purchasing, then they probably did the pre-authorization already. The next click will charge you the money now.

@  Shrug : (21 October 2019 - 04:47 PM)

TFsource charges upfront for regular pre-orders.

@  Telly : (21 October 2019 - 04:45 PM)

i was considering buying the upcoming seacons from tfsource. i had them in my cart and was on the checkout page. i set up a credit card through paypal, and before i even hit the "place order" button, i got a text saying that a charge or hold was placed on my card! is this normal? is it just checking to see if i have the money? why did it do it before i even placed the order??

So whenever he addresses his troops, he keeps cracking jokes. Sometimes these jokes are about the blunders he himself had made in his speech the previous day.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 01:01 PM)

At the moment, I'm blessed with a pretty nice superior. He's got a military background, but he takes an oddly entertaining approach to it. Imagine a stand-up comedian who accidentally enlisted as a drill sergeant.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Another type of everyday absurdity: Imagine you're leaving your workplace for your lunchbreak. Upon your return, you discover that your workplace has been cordened and/or gated off during your break, with "construction site" warning signs everywhere. You go to your superior and tell him: "I can no longer access my workplace! Why is there suddenly a construction site?" Your superior takes a surpised look and says: "I don't know, first time I see this." You figure: "Must be a Tuesday, then."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:51 PM)

It's kind of surreal, really.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 12:50 PM)

They agree that things are less than ideal, but they acknowledge that their scope of making decisions is limited. Oddly, I keep getting that regardless of how high up the chain of command I bother people.

What's it like to have management that's willing to listen to things they don't want to hear? I've never seen that.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:41 AM)

I manage to argue within the company's own internal logic and point out the flaws, shortcomings and discrepancies between "official company policy" and "everyday company reality".

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:40 AM)

Many of my coworkers are scared to even talk to managers. I often discuss company matters with them I disagree with, and it isn't a rare occurrence that they say "yeah, you're right..."

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:38 AM)

I know how to watch my tone, and I prefer to keep things straightforward and factual, never to attack the person, always the problem itself.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2019 - 04:37 AM)

The good thing for me is ever since a minor hiccup many years ago when I was still non-permanent, I've always managed to along just fine with my various superiors (I've been through over a dozen already). And that's despite my outspokenness, my blunt honesty and my oftentimes harsh criticism.

@  Echowarrior : (18 October 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Amazon in the US has pretty good benefits, though, and even the temp workers had forty hours a week to start with. Even with minimum wage, that's pretty good pay.

@  Nevermore : (18 October 2019 - 01:20 AM)

Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

Also, I'm not really into the hardcore punk tree and what goes along with it, my sister listens to absolute jive bands like Attila and it's just the worst thing ever.

Yeah, they did the OP for Crowds, which I;m gonna repost because it's pretty great:

 

Honestly, I get why your adverse to the Hardcore Punk thing, but I feel like I should advise you to at least try and step out of your boundaries in regards to music. I've found that listening to the same genre ends up being boring after awhile. Trying out new music is a refreshing thing once you've found out what clicks with you. Try out some of the bands I've listed and see if you like their style really. Also I wasn't aware that post-hardcore is exclusive to hardcore punk?
 

On another note, I've now completely used up all my Christmas money. Yaaaaaay

Musical sub-genres are all a huge mess.

 

Post-hardcore is a subgenre of hardcore punk, but then there are loads of bands that are considered post-hardcore. Looking at the Wikipedia article, I recognize zero of these bands.

 

At least my friend managed to convince me that metalcore isn't an inherently bad sub-genre with Trivium, even if Trivium is more of a fusion of metalcore, regular old heavy metal, and thrash metal than pure metalcore.

*Non-stop infinite puking*

Oh, I'm sorry, what was that? Oh yeah, musical sub-genres being messed up. Honestly yeah, it's a complete mess and I have yet to trace the origins of why it got so messed up, but I would have to assume it was due to the heavy period of experimentation that began somewhere in like the 80's/90's.

 

 



Do you ever wonder whether EES is actually a strawman persona crafted by Hecate? (I have no idea what kind of strawman)

Every night, when I'm staring at the celing trying to sleep. But then I realize Hecate's too lazy to bother putting that much effort into a ruse!

 



When am I going to take down the Christmas tree?

When you get sick of looking at and need the space.

 



Let's make this a more interesting question: how should she take down the Christmas tree? XP

She should construct a giant sling shot, and launch it into the nearest skyscraper! Make it a game as well, see what's the highest floor you can get it to.

So apparently I'm going to have to split this into two post thanks to how the boards work. Thanks Allspark.

What's your favorite color scheme?

 

Grey and Teal. To the point where I have multiple shirts and over shirts just to facilitate it in my fashion.

When did you graduate high school?

2010. Quite a boring graduation all things considered.

Why?

Because I could.

Invisibility or super-speed?

Invisibility would be nice for certain situations, but overall Super-Speed is of much more use to me. It would allow me get to all the places I want to go super easily, and allow me to get work done faster.

 

What are your feelings on mosh pits?

They're alright, I guess? Better than Raves at least!

LAN parties?

Pretty awesome. Nothing like getting a bunch of friends together to play a bunch of games and just have fun trash talking each other. It's good social experience. Unless your playing Mario Party, which in that case you're about to lose friends

 

Plus pizza's usually involved, and who can say no to pizza!

Political parties?

I'd rather not bring politics into this thread, sorry. I have a huge distaste for the entire thing.

Part two!


Social media?  Do you tweet?

Extremely useful to keep up with friends and groups, along with occasionally meeting new ones. However it is faulted by the fact it's become another cog in the machine for corporations to advertise their jive to you, along with people being REALLY REALLY dumb on them and not realizing it's public for everyone to see.

 

As for tweeting: *shameless plug*

 


Do you own a bird? If no, have you ever considered it?

We had a bird when I was super young, but my dumb younger brother decided to open the cage and it got released into the wild. At present, I've got no real desire to have a bird. They seem a bit too high maintenance for my tastes.

 


In what year was your favorite novel released?

I can't think of a favorite novel, so I'm gonna go for my favorite manga, which was in 1998.

 


Why was it detained in the first place?

For public indecency.

 


Have you ever been to Florida? Would you like to? Do you have family in Florida?

My family appparently lived there for a few years when I was super young, but I don't remember much of it. Right now, not really. I hear it's full of smelly old people.

 

Not family, but we used to have an extremely close family friend that would stop by every few year to visit us inbetween his trips around the world until he passed away. Said family friend is probably responsible for me starting me on down on the path of collecting toys, so there's that.

 


Are you an artificial life form created in a laboratory?

Thankfully, no.

 


Who is best girl?

Depends on the show. At the moment, it's Akane Tsunemori, Hibiki Tachibana, Koko Hekmatyar, Chie Satonaka, and Teana Lanster. 

 

Oh dear, I just essentially listed off who I would have in my harem, didn't I?

 


Who is best pony?

Uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

 

I abstain from the question?

 


What's your favorite location on Earth? In the solar system?

Hmm. I'm quite fond of San Fransisco and love going down there any time I have. As for the solar system, Neptune's a pretty cool planet I guess?

 


If you could talk to any one person from history for a one-hour chat over coffee (and they would forget everything about the conversation before being returned to their own time,) who would it be and would you ask them any of these questions?

Alfred Adler would be my choice, and although I'd probably try to slip in some of these questions, I'd most likely would be busy trying to probe his mind on his theories along with wanting to know what he would think of the current state of the field of psychology.

Didn't I see your name commenting on a livestream about Symphogear porn?

Oh, THAT stream. I was mostly in there because I was interested in the design books put out by the show's staff and if he had any interesting tidbits from them to share, because I'm a bit of a sucker for behind the scenes stuff.  I stuck around for the doujin part because I found it funny seeing somebody describe porn plots and because I had nothing better to do that night.

What would you do if you were in charge of a Transformers toyline for a year?

An entire line filled with spy/counter spy gimmicks. Stuff like Punch/Counterpunch, Doubledealer, Sideways, Animated Shockwave. I think it's a really cool concept, even if it would be hard to pull off. It probably would be styled like Cybertron's Planet X guys, cause those two toys are pretty much some of my favorite Transformers.

 

Ohhhhh.  I just realized that Naas likes saying mean things.  Does this make me slow on the uptake?

No, not really. Frankly it took me a bit to get it as well.

 

Is this... something I even want to know about?

Maybe.
