They may have had it earlier than that; Risa uses weather control tech to maintain its resort-style climate, and it was shown to already be established in the late 22nd century

@  wonko the sane? : (16 December 2018 - 03:13 PM)

By next gen they had weather control on earth, and were even in the process of upgrading the geologic stability network. So yeah: habitat maintenance on the next level.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 December 2018 - 02:38 PM)

I imagine World War III managed to decimate enough of the industrial economies that they inadvertently managed to exceed their carbon reduction targets from the Paris Accords, and then by the time Earth got back on its feet after the development of warp drive and first contact with the Vulcans, electricity was able to be generated cleanly and much more efficiently

@  The Doctor Who : (16 December 2018 - 01:48 PM)

I mean, they have futuristic weather control satellites and everything, I would imagine that global warming is a thing of the past in Trek.

@  unluckiness : (16 December 2018 - 09:39 AM)

How's that unrealistic? Not even the ocean wants it.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 December 2018 - 01:35 AM)

@  Pennpenn : (15 December 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Does the PotP voyager Starscream's chest stick out so far in combiner torso mode? It's kinda weird how much Elita Infinite's back seems so empty up top but very... protruding lower down.

@  Pennpenn : (15 December 2018 - 01:26 AM)

Trying to fit Elita One's combiner head back into her torso is a pain in the arse (and not just because her torso becomes her arse in combiner torso mode)

It's almost as if the people with the most money have funneled money into making the systems of government and law serve their purposes in retaining their wealth, no matter how harmful, counterintuitive, or just flat out evil they have to be. Huh.

@  Rycochet : (14 December 2018 - 02:45 PM)

Some states have laws against that, but they're in a tiny minority. There are plenty of cases where rich people have gone after journalists and their employers for accurate reporting, lost, but still left their targets saddled with hundreds of thousands ofdollars in legal fees and no hope of recovering anyof the money because a partisan judge has decreed that while they're innocent, they're not innocent enough.

@  Rycochet : (14 December 2018 - 02:43 PM)

The american system is as bad, there are plenty of cases of billionaires or corporations filing libel suits purely to kill reporting or activisim against their activities. SLAPP suits. Strategic Lawsuits against public participation.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2018 - 12:48 PM)

e.g. British libel laws place the burden of proof on the accuser, which is how we wind up with Emirati billionaires suing Western journalists in British courts

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2018 - 12:46 PM)

Never visited the UK in my life, but reading about British laws in the news gives me the vibe that British culture inherently protects the wealthy and established.

@  Anonymous X : (14 December 2018 - 12:39 PM)

Sounds a lot better than labour law in the UK. It's bare minimum standards here, you don't get any employment rights as such in the first two years of employment (and the employer can arbitrarily reset the clock). Unions are limited to a few public sector professions as well; in the private sector, there basically aren't any unions.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:25 PM)

Bonus points if your company has a works council. The employer is required by law to hear the works council prior to giving you your termination. The works council cannot prevent your termination if the employer really insists on going through with it, but if the employer failed to hear the works council, didn't wait for the works council to respond, or failed to tell the works council *all* the relevant details, the termination is legally invalid due to a technicality.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:23 PM)

The employer has to tell you the reason for your termination if you explicitly ask for it, and if you can prove the reason is factually incorrect, the employer may lose the case.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:21 PM)

For all its flaws, I really like a lot about our German labor law. Here, if you're under a permanent contract and have been continually employed for over six months, employers can only fire you for reasons that fall into one of three categories defined by law, and the burden of proof is on the employer's side in a potential court case.

@  Paladin : (13 December 2018 - 05:38 PM)

in brightest day or blackest night?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 December 2018 - 04:58 PM)

See.. In America they would just fire you for having the wrong color shoes on or some BS reason.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:13 AM)

And hey, in addition to the clocked extra hours, I earned an additional 50% overtime bonus.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:12 AM)

This past Saturday, in full expectance of a strike this week, I worked a full extra shift. They assigned me and some of the other volunteers to a totally pointless task, while some ladies were seriously sweeping the floor. When asked how long I was planning to stay, I smiled and said "a full shift!"

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:10 AM)

"You were asking for volunteers, right? I'm staying." - "But we have no more work for you!" - "I don't see how that's *my* problem..."

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:10 AM)

It's possible to use that to troll the employer a little, though... Once they allow voluntary overtime, they cannot backtrack from that. So once you notice you're rapidly running out of work, you just decide to do overtime out of spite.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:08 AM)

Now if there's *no* strike... people eventually run out of work.

@  Nevermore : (13 December 2018 - 07:07 AM)

Amazon is prepared for strikes... they just hire way too many people for the Christmas season. If there's a strike, they still have enough (albeit inexperienced) workers.

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2018 - 07:49 PM)

Not one bit :p

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 December 2018 - 06:46 PM)

@Steevy Did you read TM2's post? "Amazon.de".

@  Paladin : (12 December 2018 - 06:37 PM)

just wait until the European economy collapses up its Brexit-shaped asshole.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 December 2018 - 06:22 PM)

Probably not a ton of people, no. Although I'd say I order from one European Amazon site once every month or two, myself. Usually UK, but sometimes Germany as well. France and Italy a couple times, too. There are some good Blu-Ray releases that are exclusive to Europe

@  Steevy Maximus : (12 December 2018 - 06:00 PM)

I'm not sure a European strike is going to impact North American customers.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 December 2018 - 04:13 PM)

Well, somebody must've been working 'cuz I had an order in with Amazon.de that got shipped out the other day

@  Echowarrior : (12 December 2018 - 01:29 PM)

Amazon.

@  Benbot : (12 December 2018 - 01:01 PM)

AOL?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:22 PM)

Also, strike has been extended. So no working for 50 minutes. Would have been fun, though.

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2018 - 08:21 PM)

I said numerous times already that I work at that big American corporation that begins with "A".

Who would be the heroes in this situation?

@  Waspinator : (11 December 2018 - 02:03 PM)

When I die, I want my body to be part of a puzzle solution. Like, have my skeleton pointing at the clue the heroes are supposed to find.

The most importantly, a 12-month window of release.

It wouldn't surprise me if it came out late next year, though.

Getting the KHIII hype rolling now is good because I just finished playing through 2.8 not that long ago. Completing my playthrough of the series that started last year.

 

 

You know, I've been a fan of the series since I saw the trailer for the first game, but the reason I stuck with it didn't really click with me until I was nearly done with Dream Drop Distance.

This is me being super earnest, but I realized/remembered that friends are super important to me. That friendship is maybe the most important thing in my life.

 

You hear that power of friendship stuff all the time in children's media, but I think a lot of has been bouncing off of me for the last decade, or maybe I've only been accepting it superficially.

Getting all those Riku/Sora moments back to back pierced whatever shell I had built up and actually got me to start feeling stuff again.

 

The series doesn't make a ton of sense and is filled with a lot of pseudo-philosophical BS, but that's not important. What's important is that it is a series where the bonds with your friends are what help lead you out of the darkness.

And also Simba the Lion is there for some reason.

 

 

On a somewhat unrelated note. I'm glad Square Enix is starting to let other people make KH figures now.

Doing another TMI post, but maybe a little shorter.

 

I feel like the concept of the Nobody is a pretty good metaphor for what happened to me.

In middle school I moved away from what I consider to be my hometown. It was a lot like losing my heart.

I lost my sense of self, and kind of started feeling like a ghost.

I kept in touch with two of my friends from there, but most of them I didn't even say goodbye to because it was too painful.

I somehow made some new friends in the new town, but it didn't help that one of them moved away the same year I met them, and overall I didn't feel that close to them.

That combined with some tragedy, and undiagnosed brain stuff, all probably contributed to me dropping out of high school and being a shut in since then.

 

I feel weird saying that these things were problems for me since a lot of people move more often than I did and seem to turn out fine, but I guess I'm extra sentimental or something.

 

Maybe this is being too honest for a Transformers forum, but I feel like it's appropriate for this series.

I've compared myself to a Nobody before, so I know how you feel, Magnus. At times I feel depression and anxeity took my heart away, but when I'm around people I like, I "feel like I have a heart again," kind of like Axel said about his friendship with Roxas and Xion.

I guess I never considered the comparison before because I was never really into edgelord-aesthetics. Which is the realm I feel like Nobody stuff normally resides.

 

It's probably notable that it was after I moved away from that second town and had 0 local friends was when I became a capital T capital C "Transformers Collector".

Of course I was also at that age that most fans realize "Wait, I can just keep liking the things I liked as kid".

People said this a lot but when I played through the entire series last year I realized that it wasn't true at all. The plot is insanely convoluted, yes, but the actual plot elements are internally consistent.

 

Well.

 

Now this trailer has Marluxia back which is raising a ton of questions, so I'll get back to you on that one.

Or he came back.

 

I think that I heard something about Nobodies reviving if they die before their Heartless, but I'm not sure.

 

Not a complaint, not a complaint, but I think that Monster Sora looks like a Muppet, so now I really want to see someone make an actual muppet puppet out of him.

KH1 is definitely not perfect. That whole 90 minutes of time on the island before you can actually start playing the game is a HUGE flaw in it.
