@  wonko the sane? : (08 April 2020 - 08:42 AM)

It is. Thankfully, we don't use the thing too often. It was purchased to help take down one tree and spends about 362 days a year sitting in the shop.

@  Darkstream : (08 April 2020 - 08:23 AM)

Sounds tedious

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 06:25 PM)

grinding wheel on a dremel and a lot of patience.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 06:11 PM)

What do you use to sharpen it? I was debating buying one of those kits on Amazon

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 11:49 AM)

Wasn't the first time. I probably did it one of the times the chain jumped the blade, or when I was cleaning it or sharpening it.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 11:38 AM)

Sounds like something I'd do. I always install things backwards first.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 07:32 AM)

Not while I'm outside working with the chainsaw. If it's working fine: then I don't need it. If it's NOT working; I use hand tools cause there is a job that brought me out there. No time to read.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 April 2020 - 03:07 AM)

You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (05 April 2020 - 03:34 PM)

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2020 - 11:26 AM)

We'll always be together. Together in electric dreams.

Please remember that in these times of social distancing, we'll always be together however far it seems.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Steevy Maximus : (02 April 2020 - 11:07 AM)

I could never master oral bullshittery. But in my day I was quite adept with the written word.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

Not to be confused with Leader I

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

GET TO THE COMBINERS BEATING THE CRAP OUT OF EACH OTHER!

 
Maybe next week or the week after we "might" have Devestator vs Victorion! I want to know, exactly how does one kill a combiner, shouldn't the death of the central bot trigger a release and let the other bots go?
Combiner Wars is the sequel to the Zone OVA nobody expected!

I'm really wondering what kind of presence Victorion can even hope to have with there being as little left to this as there is. 

 

It's so weird, it's like, they want to credit the Enigma with creating combiners, but then they've got Devastator just TURN UP like this. And you KNOW it's because they KNOW the audience already knows who Devastator is because HE WUZ IN THA MOVIE so why bother, but what even is special about a combiner then? It's just nonsense.

And Windblade is literally there to kill them for possibly attempting to make Combiners, so MoF saying, "Yeah, let's do that," justifies Windblade's fears... because Windblade was coming to kill them.  This is so stupid.

If I didn't know any better, I'd have guessed this was building up to a Starscream/Rodimus/Mistress Of Flame combiner. And this series is so senseless it still might.

Megatron is suddenly the comic relief what. So he retired and studied sarcasm.


Now I know we've all decded that on the whole this show is a bit of a parade of errors but I'm wondering, aside from RWBY is there any better 3D web original animation? I mean there's Red vs Blue which is actually machinma and even then most people watch it primarily for the humor, so what's the ReBoot of the internet?
Woooo!

THEY ARE GOING TO KILL US

- mistress of flame, 2016

"I will shoot at her," said Starscream and he fired the rocket missiles. Windblade plasmaed at him and tried to blew him up. But then the ceiling fell and they were trapped and not able to kill.
"No! I must kill the combiners," she shouted!
The radio said "No, Windblade. You are the combiners."
And then, Windblade was a Combiner.

Actually, considering this series' premise of permanently-combined-into-a-single-being-Combiners-as-a-new-race, it would have been a much more interesting story if Windblade were trying to figure out how to de-combine everyone instead of just outright kill them all.

 

that would more episodes than they have and it wouldve been way too much work. hack and slash is both easier and stress relieving! 

 

They've wasted half their running time on basically two minutes worth of story, so they could fit it in.  Makes Windblade sympathetic, you could write it as Optimus having made the original decision to use the Enigma to explain why he's in exile now AND give him a better motive for rushing to stop the council, and keep Megatron exactly the same.

 

 

 

 

I also love how the Mistress of Flame thinks that the threat of a Combiner will deter Windblade and the others, even though Windblade alone just sliced Menasor into chunks not all that long ago.

I came up with a amusing idea inside of my head, earlier on, Mensor, said that the council was going to create an army of Combiners and I thought Rodimus "No, we're not going to create an army of Combiners, instead we'll create an army of Primes!" (picture fan out, see every variation of OP so far) all of them together, speak: "One shall stand, one shall fall!"

-God, how I hate noble Starscream. It's pure fanwank trash.


Hate on this version of SS all you want but I don't get how it's fanwank.
 
Fanwank would have been him repeating lines verbatim from TF:TM or the G1 'toon, since those are the fans that Hasbro is supposedly wanking with this production.

Making irredeemable villain (who was villainous on his own, no dark side spell of any sort to be broken) into a noble hero is fanwank.

...what do you think "fanwank" means? :???

Crap that makes perfect sense only to fanboys/fangirls.

So literally the exact opposite of this situation, where only someone familiar with Starscream's (assumed) history would see a problem in the first place.

(I am also pretty sure that isn't at all what "fanwank" means but I have learned my lesson about expecting people to go by the actual meanings of words.)

Then pray tell what the correct term is for fans who write and love awful fanfiction.

The commonly accepted term for bad fanfiction is "bad fanfiction."

I don't know if there's a commonly accepted description for people who write and/or read bad fanfiction, and if there is then it's probably something that was invented by men in their late thirties use to mock thirteen-year-old girls.
