Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 06:26 PM)

guessing "Hunchback" just got bumped WAY down the list for Disney's live-action remakes...

@  Patch : (15 April 2019 - 05:56 PM)

We all pronounce it wrong, so no one knows enough to care.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It'd be odd for most Americans not to know how to pronounce Notre Dame, considering they have a University with the same name that's the subject of a relatively popular film based around a sport most Americans love

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Three or four more hours will be needed to contain the fire.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Update from France 24: the Paris Fire Brigade says two towers and the main structure of the cathedral have been saved from complete destruction.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:57 PM)

One does not have to speak French to know that rhyming with "voter name" is off the mark.

@  Locoman : (15 April 2019 - 03:51 PM)

Really? It's an international tragedy and you're zeroing in on the people who maybe don't speak French?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:44 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw I just read on BBC News that the cause is not yet clear, but officials suspect the fire could be linked to renovation work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Oh boy, here we go with the U.S.-American newscasters who can't pronounce "Notre Dame" correctly.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 April 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Too soon to say.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 April 2019 - 03:20 PM)

Do we know if it was an attack? Arson? Or just bad wiring?

@  Nevermore : (15 April 2019 - 02:10 PM)

Religion is dead?

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 02:01 PM)

major cathedral burning down on Holy Week is some kind of metaphor.

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Hard to believe a wonder of the world could just be wiped out so easily. Hopefully they can still save it

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Well, Notre Dame is burning down

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 10:05 AM)

yikes I thought the site was going to be down for a while

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:07 PM)

So, time for another strike. No sleep for me tonight. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:04 PM)

Think Game of Thrones "light" meets Cabaret and you get the idea.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:03 PM)

Kinda sorta, just with more intrigue, conspiracy, depravity, crime and violence.

@  RichardT1977 : (14 April 2019 - 06:37 PM)

So it's like a prequel to Cabaret?

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 04:02 PM)

And man, characters are smoking literally EVERYWHERE.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:27 PM)

Also, full frontal male nudity. (There's been quite a bit of female nudity since episode 1.)

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 03:26 PM)

Episode 6, and Hitler is randomly name-checked.

Hasbro press release about the duo, as well as May Mayhem.

 

TRANSFORMERS INVITES FANS TO COMBINE TOGETHER FOR “MAY MAYHEM” ONLINE RETAIL AND FAN EVENT CELEBRATES THE ICONIC BRAND

 

PAWTUCKET, RI (MAY 22, 2015) – Hasbro Inc. (NASDAQ: HAS) will showcase the figures from its iconic TRANSFORMERS brand though MAY MAYHEM, a new fan initiative spotlighting the hot new TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS line. MAY MAYHEM kicks off with a special retail event, launching today through notable online retailers, allowing fans to purchase AERIALBOT QUICKSLINGER and STUNTICON BRAKE-NECK figures from the COMBINER WARS line, and continues fan participation, multi-platform storytelling and online promotions throughout the month of May.

 

“Our goal with May Mayhem is to provide collectors of the TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS line with a robust multi-platform experience,” said Tom Warner, senior vice president of the TRANSFORMERS franchise at Hasbro. “With the combination of amazing new toys and great storytelling from our partners, it’s never been a better time to be a TRANSFORMERS fan.”

 

Hasbro’s TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS action figures feature characters and expressions from throughout the 30 plus years of the TRANSFORMERS brand. In 2015 the GENERATIONS line unites under one big story – COMBINER WARS, featuring teams of TRANSFORMERS robots that combine together into one giant COMBINER robot!

Starting today, AERIALBOT QUICKSLINGER and STUNTICON BRAKE-NECK will be available exclusively through participating online retailers, such as Amazon.comWalmart.comTarget.comToysRUs.com, Entertainment Earth, BigBadToyStore, Diamond Comics andHasbroToyShop.com. With these two new figures, fans are able to complete their G1-accurate SUPERION and MENASOR COMBINER figures!

 

Additionally, several participating online retailers will be running special promotions on TRANSFORMERS GENERATIONS: COMBINER WARS figures, providing fans with an ideal way to complete their collections. As part of MAY MAYHEM, Target.com will launch a new Collector Hub and will offer 20% off select TRANSFORMERS items starting on May 25th. Also on May 25th, ToysRUs.com will offer a “Buy More, Save More” promotion on TRANSFORMERS items. Fans should also keep an eye on the Toys R’ Us Twitter account (@ToysRUs) this week to discover the special power of VICTORION, the brand new fan-built COMBINER! Then on May 27th,Amazon.com will be running a “Day of Deals” promotion on TRANSFORMERS items.

 

The action continues the week of May 25th, with the start of the TRANSFORMERS HALL OF FAME vote in the TRANSFORMERS OFFICIAL APP (available for iOS and Android from transformers.com/apps). Fans will be able to vote for their favorites in three fan-nominated categories — Favorite TRANSFORMERS Character, Best COMBINER Robot and Best Musical Act Used in a TRANSFORMERS Branded Production — with the winners to be announced at BotCon, the Official TRANSFORMERS Convention, in St. Charles, Illinois from June 18-21, 2015. Then, later in May, the epic “COMBINER WARS” story that’s been running through IDW Publishing’s TRANSFORMERS comics comes to a head in TRANSFORMERS: WINDBLADE —COMBINER WARS #3.

Nabbed them from Target. I feel like $35 for two deluxes is insane...but I'm so close to having updated versions of everyone from 1984-1986...

 

EDIT: Target also seems to be the cheapest deal right now with the free shipping. That makes me sad, but whatever.

Odd, just got mine from Target just fine.  Prices are right in line with in-store pricing, and with free shipping, it's cheaper than BBTS even with tax thrown in.

 

I really figured these guys would be harder to get :)

It also has the advantage (for me, anyway) of working with gift cards I already have.

As to the price... sadly, that seems to be about the right price for ANY CW Deluxes these days. I'm just glad these two didn't get a significant mark-up.

Being delayed an extra day in DC after a conference and being sleep-deprived as all hell paid off somehow. YEY'YAH!

 

And coming home to memorial day weekend! YEY'YAH!

Yah, but... still about $3.00 more expensive than Target cus of shipping costs.

Ended up getting these from HTS.  The 15% coupon and free shipping (2 sets, one for me and one for a friend) made it worthwhile.

 

I probably would have just gotten them from Walmart, but I never saw them go into an active/orderable status today.
