I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2019 - 05:18 PM)

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Um.. I am using the Camera button.


Oh, yeah, I'm sure a lot of people are, but I'm seeing a lot of screenshots from people who aren't.

 

 

I...did not know about this.

 

That probably would have saved my game from crashing when I tried to screencap a Jigglypuff I saw in the wild earlier this week. And I would up one Jigglypuff!

 

Incidentally, I was saying elsewhere that I enjoy how this game revived the "schoolyard" style of game design, where the game gives you little in the way of instruction and players learn about different elements of the game by sharing their experiences. It enhances the type of community game that Pokemon Go is supposed to be.

So I downloaded the update and signed back in to the game, and was back at level one with NO Pokémon.

 

Restarted the game and had everything back.

 

That was fun.

An iOS update was pushed that fixed the PTC issue. Everything is back to working order.

Tie your phone to a ceiling fan. :)
 
 
So I felt pretty bad yesterday. My wife and I had just finished up yoga class and were on our way to grab a bite. We were driving through our local mall parking lot, and a batch of 'Mon appeared-including a Wigglytuff! Well, she pulled into a spot and I caught the Wigglytuff-not realizing it wasn't one that would remain for her to catch if I caught it. So I inadvertently stole a Wigglytuff from my sweetie. :/


This kind of answers a question I have about whether an area can be over-caught, so to speak. Lots of kids and a few adults in my community playing, so it possible the reason I'm not finding any 'mons is because there aren't any out there to find. Caught a crabby this morning while fetching the mail, but the raticate got away. I wish I could trade or send over the Pokemon I've caught on my google account to my PTC account since I've caught a few raticates on Google.

Everyone sees the same spawns, but one person catching a Pokémon doesn't make it disappear for everyone. Spent a bunch of time playing with some friends at the weekend, so this is definitely the case.

Most likely the Wigglytuff spawn just naturally timed out shortly after you caught it.

Yeah I've seen some "old man steals rare pokemon from kids" copypasta floating around, as well as some others that seem to have that idea. You can only lose a Pokemon to a failed catch or timeout (or glitch), other players don't have any effect on it.

I don't think so either, but it supposedly works (on the internet, but the internet has never lied to me, so...).

 

That, or put your phone on a record player. Either convinces your GPS that you're moving, and it counts the steps. Allegedly. :D

Back when Nintendo gave out those pedometers so that people could walk their pokemon (Gold & Silver, was it?), video surfaced online of a guy who duct-taped his pedometer to his windshield wipers. 

 

As memory serves, it survived completely intact.

I'm pretty sure the religious crazies came out when the Pokemon craze first got started, too.  The success of Pokemon Go is probably the highlight of the decade for them, as they can relive their past glories.

 

This really does feel like a big resurgence of the old Pokemon craze, though.  At work today, I saw a copy of the Toronto Sun in the break room (typically a paper I avoid), and the front page was devoted to someone in a giant Pikachu costume and a headline about the new app.  The article even had instructions for Canadians on how to unofficially download the game (since it isn't offered here yet).
