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!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  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.

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

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

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.

Dang it.

I wanted to be like that old man.

Ohh.. We need Shin Megami Tensei go! See how they like that! 

Yeah, I've had a conversation about Persona before that went along the lines of "it's not really about catching demons like they were Pokemon, but it's hard to describe it in a way that doesn't sound like that".

Everyone.. just be careful with the teams you choose. Team spirit is good.. but don't let it go to far.. for remember the prophecy.

 

"Disturb not the harmony of fire, ice or lightning, lest these titans wreak destruction upon the world in which they clash. Though the water's great guardian shall arise to quell the fighting, alone its song will fail, thus the earth shall turn to ash."

 

And really... Do we -really- want Ash Ketchum to save the world?

 

 

 

No in all serious. Enjoy the teams, just don't let it get out of hand like I've seen with some people.

http://www.dailykos....kill-Christians


This game is bringing out all the crazies on all sides.  The news won't shut up about 'the dangers of Pokemon Go' - including one headline last night about a kid playing it getting hit by a car.  "Distracted kid on phone gets hit by vehicle' turned into 'POKEMON GO!  IS IT DANGEROUS FOR YOUR KIDS?'
 
Meanwhile, it's also ableist because it requires walking around:

Oh and Black People can't play the game or they will die.

So, out and about today. First, same thing happened to me today that you hear about. Saw people playing, and all you have to ask is, " What have you caught today". And this is a small town

Also, team instinct controls 3 of the 5 gyms I know about. O.o

Gotta say, the one thing that I'm finding frustrating in the low teen levels is that even rubbish Pokémon have become increasingly hard to catch. Like, sub-100 CP Zubats and Pidgeys repeatedly escaping and then running.

It feels like it's engineered to burn through your inventory and encourage dropping cash on supplies, which is irritating since at the outset it seemed like the game have a really good approach to freemium.

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.

 

Yes, speaking as a person who was attending evangelical schools during the original Pokemon craze, I can absolutely confirm the religious crazies were in season. I remember the principal of my school connecting Pokemon with satanism using Kadabra as an example. Fortunately my parents didn't hear this, or they may have overreacted (I wasn't allowed to celebrate Halloween for a large portion of my childhood). 

 

'course we know the fundies and evangelical wingnut crowd will never miss a chance to connecting anything a large number of people enjoy with satan. And even as you move away from wingnuts, you will see people using the game as a way to lay on the guilt. "Why are you playing Pokemon Go when you could be praying or witnessing?" Etc. Have definitely seen this on FB already.

On the other side of the spectrum, I've seen multiple posts about churches trying to draw people in by pointing out that their location is a Pokeshop or a gym.

I believe those are just the ones you've most recently caught. When I arranged mine by last caught, only the ones at the top had those blue backgrounds
