I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

Are there even enough toys of him to collect?

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 July 2017 - 04:21 PM)

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

As soon as they announced Mick was on the away mission for George Washington, it was inevitable that guerilla warfare was in play.  It practically writes itself.

While we have a more sainted image of the man, he really was notorious at the time for fighting dirty.  He tried the gentlemanly way in the French and Indian War, and got his butt handed to him.

Choosing not to stand in rows waiting to die in sequence is not fighting dirty.  It's not being an idiot.

"Standing in rows" was actually the smart way to fight with the technology of the day.  Muskets were so inaccurate at any sort of range that if you wanted to hit anything, you needed coordinated, massed firing.  Being anywhere in the enemy's front arc made you equally vulnerable, so forming brightly colored blocks wasn't actually a huge increase in dangerousness.  

 

Rifled longarms existed by then, but were not economical for armies.  The sorts of militias raised by the Colonists, however, were full of rifles because of all the people who had to make their living by hunting (or poaching).

 

However, Washington's "sneaky bastard" rep came from a lot more than putting his riflemen in the trees.  The retreat from Manhattan being one of the more infamous examples, where he used misdirection to get his army out of the way of a bigger army in the dark of night while a small group of men lit campfires and made "getting ready for battle" sorts of noises to fool the British scouts.  He was very good at running away, leading forces unfamiliar with the territory on merry chases...his army fought very few stand-up battles, preferring ambushes and fighting retreats.

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.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Here's why Sarah Lance keeps coming back to life: her seduction of ALL THE WOMEN is actually baked into history.  She's a fixed point in time, and must survive long enough to be responsible for every mysterious blonde spotted emerging from a bedchamber throughout history.

Obviously, Gideon is telling her that for the timeline to remain intact, all of these women need to be bedded.  Season finale revelation: it wasn't vital to the timeline, Gideon is just a femmeslash enthusiast.

I've noticed that since he was on Arrow (and evidently others noticed when he was on Chuck). I don't really have any explanation to offer up though.

"I liked you better when you were killing people..." Me too, Mick...

Seriously, I wish they could've brought Rip back to the team while keeping a little of his evil persona, that was easily the best version of him. Letting Sara remain captain, while Rip occupies the Snart role in the team, that would've been awesome to see.

And nice to see the Vixen series mythos getting referenced in this episode.
