It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 04:29 AM)

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.


DEEP DEEP TROUBLE!

For those not from SC you may nor understand the way the law does, or does not work here. If one were to recieve a counterfit check or M/O here and try to cash it they will be the ones arrested. There is no proof that someone else made the thing and sent it out while only the casher is there holding the evidence in his hand. It's unfortionate, but I see it all the time. When a person is lucky enough to get out of jail they can gather the evidence needed to clear their name, but otherwise they are pretty much screwed.

Now gentlemen, this member has a decent rep on E-bay, why don't we just let him try to sell in peace.

Wait, wait, so you come into this guy's thread, call him a thief, he responds, and now you think/want the thread to be locked? You have got to me be kidding me, Asquian!

I can absolutely understand being a little suspicious about this guy's post, as I am sure most people were who read it. I can even understand posting in here with your doubts. But what I cannot understand is that after all but calling the guy a thief, you think the thread should be locked. That is simply ridiculous.

Oh, and another thing, how about talking in simple English next time instead of using a word like "methinks." Are you British? Do you live in 18th Century America--no, you're not and you don't, so just say "I think" next time!

Atillah,

I can honestly say I believed you. But I noticed something just now that is making me wonder. Are you using multiple ebay accounts?

Item you sold:
http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem

Item being sold by new Ebay member:
http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem

Same location, same format, same picture style and things are worded almost the same.

Please, don't take this the wrong way. I just thought it was something others should know. As far as I know, it is perfectly legal to sell under multiple accounts(please someone correct me if I'm wrong). It just seems abit shady.

Mike

Wait, your bugging Asquian about his Grammar when the Thread Starter has Horrible Grammar and is insulting others? If so, then I'd say you’re a hypocrite.

OKAY. OBVIOUSLY WHEN SOMEONE LOOKS UP IGNORANCE AND STUPIDITY IN A DICTIONARY, THEY SEE YOUR FACE! ARE YOU AWARE THAT BASICALLY YOU'VE CALLED ME A THIEF?! I WOULD LIKE TO THINK THAT WITH OVER 100 FEEDBACKS ON EBAY, ALL 100 PERCENT POSITIVE, AND THE FACT THAT I'VE DEALT WITH SEVERAL OTHER MEMBERS HERE WOULD ESTABLISH THE FACT THAT I NOT ONLY HAVE WHAT I SELL, BUT I ALSO SHIP THE ITEMS AS WELL!! THE CUSTOMERS SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

ALL OF THESE FACTS ARE IRRELEVANT BECAUSE RETARDS AND FOOLS CANNOT UNDERSTAND SIMPLE FIGURES!!!! KNOWLEDGE IS POWER!! STUPIDITY IS
THE DOORWAY TO DEATH!!! GROW UP, LEARN SOME MANNERS, AND LEARN TO READ THE MEMBER FEEDBACK FORUM BEFORE YOU ATTEMPT TO INSULT SOMEONE WHO IS OBVIOUSLY SEEKING WISDOM!!! MAYBE YOUR MOM SHOULD'VE TAUGHT YOU BETTER MANNERS.


Double standerds anyone?

Whatever. Your troubles don't give you an excause to be an bunghole.



FIRST OF ALL, STOP THE NAME CALLING AND PROFANITY, CHILD!!! HAD YOU READ THE THREAD, YOU WOULD HAVE SEEN THAT I QUOTED SLEDDOGG83 WHEN I TYPED THE RETURN INSULT!!!

WHAT DO YOU MEAN BY ACCUSING ME OF HAVING DOUBLE STANDARDS? LEARN TO PROPERLY SPELL STANDARDS FIRST, FOOL!!!

YOU'VE OUTRIGHT CALLED ME AN bunghole!! I AM NOT STUPID!! THE WORD BUNG IS USED AS A SLANG AROUND HERE FOR ASS, SMART ASS!! GROW THE hug UP!
