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.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

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

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Hmm.. It's often really very good but not quite at my top...

For current TV Toons I'd go:
1) Steven Universe
2) Gravity Falls
3) Star Wars: Rebels
4) Wander Over Yonder
5) Transformers: RiD
6) Star vs the Forces of Evil

-ZacWilliam, so it's one I definitely try to watch every ep of but just outside my top 5. But there have been some great eps and I think it has the potential to move up in the future.

IMHO,  Wander over Yander and Star vs. Evil are some of the most annoying, terribly written things that ever graced the (small) screen in the past years. The mere voice of Wander or Princess Ponyhead (is she deliberatly supposed to  sound like those annoying reality show contestants who never shut up?) is enough to make me want to turn these off. I did try to check some later episodes out of boredom but quickly changed channels. If I could bear to watch more episodes of Ultimate Spiderman, Avengers Assemble, or even Pig-Goat-Banana-Cricket than these two, then it shows how low these are on my score. (and tolerance for a annoyance-scale)

 

Also, can't understand how your list contains these two but not Nickelodeon's TMNT, Gumball, Dragons or Over the Garden Wall?

Wow, Star vs The Forces of Evil has really come into its own as a series since the first four episodes. The animation has always been pretty pleasing but lately its had an extra oomph that really makes it shine.

 

That's partly because they switched studios from Mercury Filmworks to Toon City so that Mercury could focus on development of The Lion Guard.

Gumball is a show where I feel it has a budget but none of it goes into the writing. It looks gorgeous but it seems to lean on the mixed media visuals too much for my liking.

I dunno man, Gumball frequently feels like like its really self aware and actively skirting the edge of what they can riff on. Its got this really interesting approach to its situations that the mishmash of artstyles allows for.

I was really surprised at how openly they could refer to "Super Saiyan" in a recent episode.

You're complaining that about a character that has appeared in two episodes of the show so far, just so you know.

Officially convinced that Wander Over Yonder is criminally underrated. I appreciate it has a different tone because it's led by arguably the oldest current Disney TV creator but the show is a lot of fun and continues the experimentation seen in McCracken's past shows. The Breakfast, for example, is an entire split screen episode showing Wander and Lord Hater's differing attitudes to making breakfast, with the action and soundtrack syncing between the two.

 

Hater himself is probably one of my fave characters in a long time. It's very easy to create an intentional joke villain but Hater actually has an arc going, can be pretty intense when he wants to be and recently even made up for losing territory thanks to the show's prime gag premise.

Must have been the two episodes I saw, then. Or do you even read what I wrote? Nah, you can just take out snippets from my text, and pretend it means what you want ...  Easier. You must be a journalist!

I considered it myself though also some other related customs. We know Hater has at least one mecha and there's various skull faced mecha out there to work from...

 

They sometimes do Disney cosplay charity days at work. Grunkle Stan was going to be my go to next time but now, well.....Hate's great! Best villain!!
