Best of luck, Nevermore.

Best of luck man.

GOOD LUCK, NEVERMORE!

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

I have two Overlords one was faulty with a melted foot and they never took it back but replaced it, I just checked the guns, both the handles seem to be turning white.

pansy. my trypticon AND scorponok took a header from 4 feet up and only had parts pop off that were easily reattached. guess 'cons are tougher...

@  tigerhawk : (04 May 2021 - 04:03 PM)

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (27 April 2021 - 04:59 PM)

CORVUS: considering that reply, I'm pretty sure this was just another instance of Bass posting poorly-defined drivel as if it were profound.

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 April 2021 - 04:24 PM)

Given the last year and a half or so, is it any surprise?

@  Bass X0 : (27 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

Saint Georges Day.

@  Sabrblade : (21 April 2021 - 11:55 PM)

Glenn Morshower would agree. He goes to auditions with his shoes full of syrup.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 04:28 PM)

Please, maple syrup can only improve alot of content.

@  Donocropolis : (21 April 2021 - 03:33 PM)

Well, not release it into Canada, no. You'd just get maple syrup all over it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2021 - 03:21 PM)

what bothers me most about Canadian rights is that, oftentimes, the rights holders for certain content don't even seem to have any interest in releasing it

@  NotVeryKnightly : (21 April 2021 - 10:46 AM)

It'd be mostly the same even in a world with global copyright law, since even the shortest terms are very long.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 April 2021 - 10:39 AM)

You got me, I just want to watch cartoons without having to pirate them for once.

3rd time's the charm you mean. Don't forget she wanted to run in 2008 but couldn't beat Obama to get the nomination.

Yeah. I think I blocked out 2008. Or got Devossed. We'll go with that.

The big advantage I see is that HRC would annoy the hell out of President TV. Every time she speaks, she can get in a "3 million more votes" kind of thing. The disadvantage is that (a) the media will call her a sore loser and (b) it'll just solidify his base more what with the baked in ArgleBargleClintonRage. I'm not entirely sure that's worth the risk.

We need SOMEONE on a national level though. Someone we can point to as a "voice" of the party. Not necessarily as a 2020 candidate, but just as someone who can act as a spokesperson. It's not Sanders. It's not Clinton. It's not Warren (as much as I like her). I'm not sure WHO it is at this point.

Jokes aside, you know who I think would be the perfect candidate to run in 2020? Whoever has spent the most time between now and then publicly opposing Trump. His toughest, most merciless critic. Preferably a senator who has been able to actually vote against his bullshit and make more of a difference than just shouting about him all the time would, but I'm not partial. Hell, maybe if one particular federal judge ends up shutting him down a whole bunch, get that guy. That's something I'm surprised I never see, and I bet it's why incumbents usually win so easily. If you're running as the opposition candidate, actually getting to point to a track record of being the incumbent's chief opposition is the best selling point you could possibly have, the same way they can point to what they've done during their first term.

i.e. she who we keep telling should run but never wants to run.

 

Apparently something must have happened with this lately, I guess Trump made statements about a day ago to the effect of how it would be "a dream come true" to run against Warren because he figures she would lose "so very badly" and that he thinks that she really hurt Clintons chances against him in the first place.

 

Oh wow he actually said that she "had too much anger in her heart" and that's how she hurt Clinton. I mean yeeesh.

It's either Warren or that other lady Senator who's name escapes me and I'm on my phone so I can't Google easily who's been saying nay to every single Trump pick. One of them is gonna be the Dem nominee.

Sanders is 75 years old; it might not be the safest bet to count on him all the way to 2020...

 

I've been reasonably impressed with Kamala Harris from California; she's been consistently opposed to Donald's nominees and very outspoken against this administration.

I was kinda hoping Tulsi might be it, but the more stuff comes out about her, the more she's looking like Anakin waiting for an Emperor to come along.

 

Locally, Jane Kleeb, the person in charge of the Nebraska Democratic Chair and one of the founders of Bold Alliance, pretty much went from grassroots (pun intended) progressive agriculture to straight out all inclusive Progressive benchmarks.    I'll be daring enough to say with Bold Alliance and Brand New Congress teaming up that the other 2/3 of Nebraska could turn blue.

There are a bunch of Dems who can take on Donald and win.  The problem is will the Dems recognize the issues of running from your own base, which is what the GOP tried to do in 2008, and leading with a candidate who had 20+ years of smear campaigns run against them.

 

Ironbite-2018 will be telling for that.
