@  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)

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:51 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)

@  Xellos : (13 April 2019 - 06:06 PM)

I had an epiphany today. My spirit animal is Fozzie Bear. We both love our un-bear-able jokes, which make people feel like they are being pun-ished.

@  Nevermore : (12 April 2019 - 06:24 AM)

That's what makes the show so poignant, I think. It take a contemporary perspective, rather than a modern one. The hardships of the time aren't glossed over, but they're portrayed very stoically. Yeah, many people suffered, there was poverty, but so was life at the time. There's also a high-ranking Jewish police official who's a very by-the-books guy and supports the frail democracy of Weimar Germany. If you want to learn more about how Germany BEFORE the Period Everyone Knows About, this show is as good as it gets.

@  Nevermore : (12 April 2019 - 06:19 AM)

Because in retrospect, we (even here in Germany) tend to view the era with knowledge of what would later come, but in reality, the Nazis started out as a regional fringe movement and basically just happened to be in the right place at the right time to seize power.

@  Nevermore : (12 April 2019 - 06:18 AM)

The communists are a much bigger threat. When the Nazis appear, they will likely do so with a bang. Like, completely out of left field.

@  Nevermore : (12 April 2019 - 06:17 AM)

The show tries its best to accurately depict the zeitgeist of the era, the post-war period with a young, struggling (and ultimately doomed) democracy... but like in real life, the Nazis aren't really an issue on anyone's mind yet.

@  Nevermore : (12 April 2019 - 06:16 AM)

The female lead is a young, aspiring typist and part-time prostitute who dreams of becoming a police officer working in the murder department.

@  Nevermore : (12 April 2019 - 06:15 AM)

During his investigations, he becomes involved in political unrest, murder cases, a conspiracy of reactionary monarchists, Russian counter-revolutionaries and more.

@  Nevermore : (12 April 2019 - 06:14 AM)

@Benbot: Babylon Berlin is a film noir-style crime drama set in the German capital of Berlin in the year 1929. It features a World War I veteran turned police officer from Cologne who comes to Berlin to investigate a porn ring that blackmails his superior, the grand mayor of Cologne (who would later become the first chancellor of post-WWII Germany).

Which Amiibo?

Just based in my 5B: Inkling boy and girl (Splatoon 1 series), Kirby (Kirby series), and Ryu, Ness and Fami-ROB (Smash series) and several Animal Crossing ones.

 

Regarding Smash-compatiblity: If a character is in a game, it's Amiibo figure WILL work. Hell, the non-Isabelle figures unlocks their Spirits.

I've also seen Mario Party Peach and Yoshi (bought Peach), Smash Lucas and Falco (only one of him), and an Animal Crossing 3-pack which, yes, is $5.

 

RE: Ramhorn, I guess the one I got is the lighter variant? It's a more desaturated brown. ALSO, 5B's been getting in the larger-than-Legions-but-not-Deluxes Evergreen figures, Tiny Titans, the final wave (I think?) of TLK Legions (Hound & Dragonstorm) and even some not-Transformers-at-all robo-cars.

 

And in other 5B toy stuff just because why not, there's buttload of MLP movie stuff, $5 Star Wars Black Series 6" figures (grabbed 3PO, also got General Leia at Ross for $3 because Carrie Fisher in the height of her "f*** you" years hells to the YES I'm gonna buy that for $3), lots of those Lego boxes with color-based "build whatever" themes.

amiibo of player characters will give you some money, IIRC, and let you use them as programmable fighters, like in Sm4sh. Non-player characters (e.g., Celeste from AC) will unlock their Spirit, for the most part (I don't have too many of these, but the ones I had gave me some pretty good Spirits).

Crossroads Cary had at least three Ramhorns, I got mine and one for Trent so might still be one there. Beaver Creek in Apex was dry of Titan Masters. Those were the only two I was really able to get to.

Speaking of Trypticon

Gsf9ruS.jpg

I'm a little disappointed that a Prime Master can't plug into Tryp's noggin like this -- there's enough space between the guns for the legs but not the wider face. Would've been a fun toyetic way of storing a "power up" toy instead of just hiding it inside the Pretender armor.

The hips should lock in pretty solidly.  If the teal swing bars aren't lying flat, then push harder.  There's a release button behind his hip on each side that you need to press when going from his dino mode to his other forms.

If it's like mine, they don't flatten flush against the body in any mode.

Got pics of what you're talking about? I tried posting some for help a while back, but to no avail.

So, back around Black Friday, BBTS had a 53% off preorder for Titan class Trypticon and so I sprung for one at the time since I hadn't gotten one for myself. I shipped it back in December and it arrived around near the end of the month. Having finally had the time, I got around to opening up the delivery box and have taken a look at my new Trypticon's batch number. It's one I've never seen listed before. It's 82351.

 

I haven't opened the figure's box yet, but I was wondering if this batch number has come up before as to indicate whether mine is a good Trypticon with no problems with the hips, tail, or chest door, or if it's one of the faulty ones.

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.

I got one just before Christmas, myself, and opened it only this past weekend. While it's possible that any damage has already been done, I was also wondering if there was some easy way to determine what batch this came out of.
