Neither of those are really surprising.

@  Waspinator : (25 September 2018 - 10:47 PM)

If you think that's weird, Amazon Japan sponsors a show about cannibal mutants (Kamen Rider Amazons) called Amazonz.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 September 2018 - 10:10 PM)

I like how in the Percy Jackson universe, Amazon is literally run by the Amazons.

@  RichardT1977 : (25 September 2018 - 07:57 PM)

Government is simply the Laws and Customs of the War of All against All.

@  Betty Nor : (25 September 2018 - 06:46 PM)

Slavery, maybe. At least until, by law, Corporations are considered Borg, at which point, the term will be reclassified as assimilation.

@  wonko the sane? : (25 September 2018 - 06:19 PM)

And, under american law; corporations are people. So isn't that technically canabalism?

@  TheMightyMol... : (25 September 2018 - 06:16 PM)

Put two corporations in a room and in less than an hour one of them will be trying to buy out the other.

"Capitalism is human nature! Don't interfere with what works, you bloody socialist!"

@  wonko the sane? : (25 September 2018 - 06:34 AM)

That's kind of the problem isn't it, amazon doesn't really HAVE any competitors. Sure, there are other companies offering similar services but nothing even close to scope or scale. How do you compare against something when you yourself are the only one doing it?

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:41 AM)

Oh wait, I forgot, Amazon is a major player, so they should be setting high standards competitors should be looking up to, not comparing themselves to smaller competitors for reference.

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:39 AM)

Also, if you add the maximum possible amount of bonuses, and employee stock at its peak, we earn more we would earn under a collective bargaining agreement with the union including vacation and Christmas bonuses (but not including additional vacation days, late shift bonuses, weekend bonuses and whatnot)!

@  Nevermore : (25 September 2018 - 02:37 AM)

But... But... we earn more than people in random other jobs that have nothing to do with us at all which Amazon randomly picked so they'd be paying better by comparison!

@  Paladin : (24 September 2018 - 06:51 PM)

Bezos' Dust is also what the Amazon staff makes, in proportion...

@  Patch : (24 September 2018 - 06:07 PM)

Don't you mean Bezos Dust?

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 September 2018 - 03:47 PM)

What, you never wanted some Amazon-exclusive PCP?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 September 2018 - 03:33 PM)

It's pretty hilarious to see people freely throwing around "PCP" in reference to new Punch-Counterpunch figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (22 September 2018 - 01:53 PM)

So apparently some models of air-conditioner are on trays inside the case, so they can be removed for easy access to the internals. I did not know that two hours ago: and have since cleaned three. It's been a learning kind of day.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 September 2018 - 09:15 AM)

There's probably been a Pokedex-themed 3DS cover.

@  Noideaforaname : (21 September 2018 - 04:34 PM)

I still got that Pikachu Edition Gameboy Color from back in the day. Yellow and Blue and with Pikachu, Jigglypuff and Togepi on the screen.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 September 2018 - 04:30 PM)

Quote of the day: I either need bourbon or aspirin, and I'm pretty sure the liquor cabinet is closer than the medicine chest.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 September 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I don't recall any Pokedex themed DS or Game Boy, but plenty of Pokemon-themed ones. My favourite, and the one I've got myself, was the Pokemon Red/Blue themed 3DS with the swappable faceplates that came out around the time the original games were made available via digital download

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 September 2018 - 02:30 PM)

I'm fairly certain Nintendo has done Pokéball red and white, but I don't know about specific Pokédex colors.

@  Paladin : (21 September 2018 - 11:10 AM)

random thought: has Nintendo ever made a 3DS that looks like a Pokedex? because that seems like a GOLDMINE waiting to happen...

@  Nevermore : (21 September 2018 - 03:23 AM)

Wiigii! Titans Return Grotusque for only 60 Euros (actually 70 but I somehow had an eBay gift card for reasons that escape me) with free shipping from within my own country!

@  Whirl Maximus : (21 September 2018 - 03:02 AM)

That was the plan for Predators too with the Super Predators.

@  Waspinator : (21 September 2018 - 01:46 AM)

So, apparently in the new Predator movie, the Predators don't hunt us for honor or the challenge or anything like that, but because they're stealing human DNA to modify themselves. Congrats Hollywood, on making a monster far less cool and scary.

@  Pennpenn : (20 September 2018 - 08:46 AM)

I only started playing it recently so I don't know what it was like before. Actually surprised they haven't finished the story yet. Then again, unless they introduce another world it's pretty much just Maleficent and whatever the Foretellers are playing at left.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 September 2018 - 08:30 AM)

Geeze.. I reloaded up Kingdom Hearts X for the first time in a long time. That game has massivily inflated from when I played it when it first launced in the US.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 09:07 AM)

It's an annoying thing to have happen in any game. I'm hoping they actually finish releasing all the story mode parts before 3 comes out.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 06:24 AM)

Ahh. Hadn't played that in a long time.. Since before the PVP I think.

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 04:33 AM)

Kingdom Hearts Union Cross. Specifically the PVP fights.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 September 2018 - 04:31 AM)

What game PennPenn

@  Pennpenn : (19 September 2018 - 03:13 AM)

Man, I love it when you've got limited attempts at something in a game, said game crashes at the end of the thing, so you lose the attempt but don't get any credit.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 08:44 PM)

I know. I'm back to the classic purple for the first time since the comic theme was introduced.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 08:32 PM)

Alright thanks, gonna be weird without the speech bubble boxes but I'll manage.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 September 2018 - 07:59 PM)

Nope, ongoing problem for a bunch of us. The mods know, so... just hunker down and wait. In the mean time: changing themes will sort it out for a bit. Only the comic theme is affected.

@  Fenix Twilight : (18 September 2018 - 05:36 PM)

Is something going on? I'm missing the buttons to go to the newest post and there's no banner for the forum list, it just says "logo" in the corner.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 09:30 PM)

cleaning up, mostly.but the little plastic piece where the power cable hooked up was broken. That I managed to put back together.

@  Patch : (11 September 2018 - 04:48 PM)

So he also has White Castle-like qualities?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 September 2018 - 02:23 PM)

Just keep him away from the plumbing, he's really hard on the pipes.

@  RichardT1977 : (11 September 2018 - 01:22 PM)

Overlord has some castle-like qualities to him

@  wonko the sane? : (11 September 2018 - 12:15 PM)

Fix it, like, found a working power adaptor, or fix it like: there was saudering involved.

@  Lazy Garou : (11 September 2018 - 11:58 AM)

that feeling when you fix something and works like a dream. we now have a working snes in my house and I have tested 10 games on it and they all work.

"I forgot they were in the intro to Headmasters, and that animation is so good, I wonder what else they did in the intro..."

Immediately after that clip, Raiden kicks Sinntertwin so hard he explodes, then performs an equally devastating backhand to Cutthroat.  Cut to Rodimus Prime who takes down Blot and Cutthroat simulatneously with his wrist guns, causing them to explode violently. Next shot is Brainstorm, who fires upon Rippersnapper point blank.  Hun-Gurrr is never seen again.

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

"He learned, almost too late, that man is a feeling creature and, because of it, the greatest in the universe. He learned, too late for himself, that men have to make their own way, to make their own mistakes. There can't be any gift of perfection from outside ourselves. And, when men seek such perfection, they find there's only death, fire, loss, disillusionment, the end of everything that's gone forward. Men have always sought an end to toil and misery. It can't be given; it has to be achieved. There is hope, but it has to come from inside, from man himself."

When I realized, I found the three "transector" references on TFWiki and fixed them. = P No idea why I'd read it that way. 

 

I actually would have assumed trans + [pro]tect myself.

This video reminds me of all the bizarreness that surrounded the cartoon versions' interpretations of these guys, like where Arcana rides on top of Brainstorm instead of piloting him, or the way the Targetmasters didn't have handles; Rebirth had the bots just holding them like some sort of box, as I recall, while Headmasters in Japan had them plug into the wrist instead.

Just... why?

Considering the Technobots had a set of model sheets where the backs were entirely just made up (and super wrong), I'm guessing the prototype reference photos the character model artist got were of only one or two angles.  Without a handle.


Fall of Cybertron will blow your mind. That is all.
