They fight you with sparkles.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 May 2019 - 03:40 AM)

Phyrexians are the bishie-est.

@  unluckiness : (24 May 2019 - 12:29 AM)

That's why they always wear long sleeved shirts and long pants

@  fourteenwings : (23 May 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Everybody knows the most bishie thing about any bishie is his exposed sinew.

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2019 - 10:04 PM)

*looks up the humanoid slivers* ...really? People were calling those bishies?

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Have they made a sliver planeswalker yet?

@  RichardT1977 : (23 May 2019 - 10:29 AM)

"DECOMPOSE!"

@  Paladin : (23 May 2019 - 06:29 AM)

will they next evolve into Inhumanoids?

@  Ashley : (23 May 2019 - 02:42 AM)

the original slivers were spikey monsters. then the evolved into humanoids. now they're back to spikey bug monsters.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2019 - 10:42 PM)

Wait. Slivers were bishies???

@  unluckiness : (22 May 2019 - 10:40 PM)

They haven't necessarily looped yet. It's possible they're stuck in "yaoi anatomy"

@  Ashley : (22 May 2019 - 10:35 PM)

I think Slivers in MTG have crossed the bishonen line and looped back around to monstrous

@  wonko the sane? : (22 May 2019 - 09:48 PM)

So, now that Game of Thrones is over, when can we get back to The Dragon Prince?

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:19 AM)

Like, half of them nowadays are montages of tweet screencaps from the writer's inbox

@  unluckiness : (20 May 2019 - 12:18 AM)

lol you expected integrity from internet news

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:33 PM)

I'm mostly confused how news sites went from "Analysing all the amazingness of Game of Thrones" to "Fans sure don't like this season!", like... way to prioritize clicks over a solid editorial opinion

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 11:30 PM)

[and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site"] is this like the Toei Quarry?

@  MEDdMI : (19 May 2019 - 11:17 PM)

@Foffy and then that giant lasagna just tipped over and killed everyone, to be later known as the infamous Bad Monday event.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

Ahahaha!!! Go read the reactions for yourself. To say anything more here risks spoiling the finale for subscribing Allsparkers, the quality of this season notwithstanding.

@  Foffy : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 PM)

pretty wild how heathcliff was in the game of thrones finale, i was not expecting that crossover

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

were they still super pissed?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 May 2019 - 10:48 PM)

Well, as someone who is not into Game of Thrones, it sure was entertaining to open up social media this evening to unexpectedly see headlines about fan reactions to the finale. Lmao.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:12 PM)

But it's also a SUPER-well known location in my region, so these extensive exterior shots without any post production alterations completely ruin the illusion for me.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:11 PM)

I mean, I get why they did it: It's an existing location that fits the purpose, it's open for the public, and they had to shoot some scenes in my home state anyway to due a subsidizing deal.

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Needless to say, it's not in Berlin, and even what's seen onscreen is waaaaay too modern for something that's supposed to exist in 1929 (even moreso as a derelict site in 1929). The structures seen haven't even been built until the 1960s!

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 06:07 PM)

I'm currently in the process of watching season 2 of Babylon Berlin, and there's a recurring setting of a "derelict industrial site" or whatever it's supposed to be on the show, and I easily recognize it as a place only a few minutes from where I live (it's actually a former ironworks site that's been turned into a public park).

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Ever since I went to Japan last year, I have friend who dread watching anime with me due to that...

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Not hugely, but I am the type to notice places once I have been there and say "Hey, I've been there!"

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

Half of new york city (on tape.) is actually montreal.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:50 PM)

I watched Death Wish 5 last night and clearly recognized Toronto streets; didn't pull me out of Bronson's 1-man war on drugs or fashion or whatever it was that pissed him off that time

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 May 2019 - 05:49 PM)

it's nice to finally be thought of as exotic by somebody! lol

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:48 PM)

In an "I cannot possibly make my brain ignore the location I'm familiar with and pretend it's whatever the story claims it is" way?

@  Nevermore : (19 May 2019 - 05:42 PM)

Question for those of you living in exotic locations such as the US or the UK: If you watch a movie or a TV show that features a real-life location as a stand-in for someplace else, and you recognize the real-life location due to having been there in person, does that pull you out of the story?

@  Xellos : (19 May 2019 - 05:15 PM)

Maybe you should have installed macOS in your house instead.

@  Noideaforaname : (19 May 2019 - 04:40 PM)

Nothing like coming home after a long day to find a bird in the house. And then once you sit down for a well-earned rest after leading the bird back outside, you find it had a friend. A friend who *really* doesn't understand how windows work...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:26 PM)

Bingo. The big polls don't tell people what's actually happening because that doesn't sell.

@  fourteenwings : (19 May 2019 - 10:59 AM)

IIRC there are good polls but data is easily manipulated so they give people what they want to hear

@  wonko the sane? : (19 May 2019 - 10:58 AM)

The only way to get people interested in politics is to make into reality TV. So they lie to do it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 May 2019 - 01:38 AM)

Yeah, polling these days is garbage.

@  Sean Whitmore : (18 May 2019 - 11:53 PM)

Well, he was an honest man. He wasn’t gonna lie to a 5-year-old.

@  Paladin : (18 May 2019 - 08:34 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (18 May 2019 - 10:26 AM)

Greasy, disappointing and still managing to be over priced?

@  Lancer : (18 May 2019 - 10:22 AM)

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).
