It's really rather shocking watching the Investor Day presentation and seeing how much Hasbro actually owns now.

If everyone had COMMON SENSE, then things would maybe go a little better-

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Some Alternators were fine, then you have Grimlock/Wheeljack, with three transformers worth of fiddly and a giant buttflap.

@  Telly : (13 February 2021 - 01:49 AM)

Kage entered the house and... decided that, upon seeing a tree performing a transfusion and a mobile fire acting as waste disposal... It might well be better to just go with the flow and no question the madness.

“It’s good to see you again, old man. I see your home friends are as eclectic and unique as you are. How’ve you been Howard?”

EB blinked at the Various Things he could not explain. After wearing a face knotted in confusion for a few moments, he relaxed a little. Aah, yes. They must be animatronics, genetic chimeras, or other special effects like the ones he had seen at the Island attractions. He waved a bit awkwardly at Howard's group.

"Oh, this is simply wonderful..!" Dee had left EB's back -as the warebunny had seemed to regain his fortitude somewhat and had made her way to the stunningly wrong mirror. 

 

"If only my hair were still that long." Dee reached up to stroke the hair that looked to be falling down over her shoulders. The Mirror version of her did the same...

Howard flits to the table and flips through the bundles, then enfolds PoeT in a crushing bear hug. "Ah everyting mi could want." He murmurs, holding the hug for another second before bouncing back over to the others, neatly scooping Fir up in one arm along the way. "Ah suh gud to see unuh again!" He loops each person in turn into a brawny one-armed hug (while making a 'got my eyes on you' gesture to Dee's reflection). "Suh dis ah Fi-yuh -- Dem ah ah likle shy -- an dis ah grung zero, fi mi bess bredren!" The birch tree slowly reaches out a gnarled claw of a branch to each of you.

daring to take her eyes off the beautiful hair, Dee addresses Howard's indoor friends as she had his outdoor friends. 

 

"Wonderful to meet you both." As Fir's branch touches her, Dee marvels at the sensation... having spent so long in the woods alone, it was a sudden unlooked for comfort to realize that she really hadn't ever been. Smiling at them she reaches her own finger up to touch the branch back. "Thank you." Turning to the fire - with her finger still trailing along the branch. 

"Howard is a very friendly man and he has many he calls friend, but to think we would get to meet his Best friend... that is a unique gift indeed. Thank you, Ground Zero this honor alone has made this trip memorable."

Kage accepted the greeting and cocked his head again at the very self-aware tree. Howards hug took him off guard, since Kage still wasn’t much for hugging.

Well, yeah he was, but he’d never admit it.

“I am genuinely fascinated to met all of your friends Howard.”

While the intrductions continued, Kage eyed the strange ‘alternate’ mirror with interest. Its ‘slightly off’ variations of the rooms reflected occupants intrigued him. Moreso because he couldn’t quite shake the feeling that their ‘mirror images’ weren’t just a slightly off-kilter magical image.

“You do keep yourself busy, don’t you? I kean, i’ve heard of patching people up. Judt, not quite so literally.”

The nature of the crushing hug gave the PoeT little ability to return the embrace, but neither did he protest nor resist.  Afterward, stowing his staff by the door, he pulled back his hood and found a seat, watching the others with a slightly amused glimmer in his eye.

EB tilted his head at Dee's reflection, then at Dee. Girls like to be complimented on hair cuts, right? He gave Dee's short hair a quick tussle.
"You're still cute."

EB found himself automatically returning Howard's hug, and shaking the tree's hand. "Hi." He said simply.

Ground Zero rustles his branches, obviously pleased with himself, and Howard beams. Most of Ground Zero's introductions hadn't gone half as well as this. Maybe it was not leading with the story of how Ground Zero tried to eat him.
 

“You do keep yourself busy, don’t you? I kean, i’ve heard of patching people up. Judt, not quite so literally.”


Howard shrugs. "Oh, yuh know ou de stories guh. De hero leaves pon fi dem quest an quickly finds demselves unprepared fi de trials of de road. Dey pass out fram som horrible injury, den wake up inna de cottage of an eccentric medicine mon wo lives alone inna de woods. Dey patch de hero up an teach dem wat dey need to know before dey return to saving de world. Ah ah tale dats been around whole heap longa dan mi ave."

The PoeT, who turned and reclined sideways on the chair fishing something out of his satchel, spoke up.

 

He says,

 

"'tis always a demon cruiser or magical ray of death,

 Or plague from The Pits that threatens to steal our breath.

 But folks of plain birth live on their lives quite happily,

 The key being that heroes allow them to live qutie ignorantly."

“Considering the kinds of complivations and confrontations we’ve all encountered of the past months, i’m more than willing to stand at the gates if it allows others to live on in relative innocence.” Falling silent for a moment, it was clear that Kage was remembering how he had once been ‘one of those innocents’, as a shadow crossed his face.

“Evil rises and good must answer. Though not without the welcome help of an eccentric medicine man living (not) alone in the woods,” he added with a chuckle. Although it still took Kage a few moments to wrestle the right words from Howards strong accent, he had always had a good ear for voices. So he knew that eventually, Howards odd Jamaicubean, wouldn’t seem so odd anymore.

“So then Howard, what do you have planned for us?”

Friday turned to look off into the distance and then Oracle announced, "It seems pertinent that I announce low level seismic activity in the area." The group heard a rumbling in the distance that rapidly grew closer until they heard something crash into the clearing. As they exited the cottage, they saw several furry beasts pulling an icy teal and gilded purple chariot, though the size of it made it more akin to a carriage. From what a few remembered from various descriptions, these were 'bearyaks'. The towering, elder woman who stood up from the "backseat" of the chariot was immediately recognized as the healer, Rel'Aeh. This meant that the couple in the front must be the king and queen of Viknadia! The king puffed out his muscular, barrel chest as he exited the chariot with a proud swagger. The queen was not quite as muscular but was still fairly toned. She glanced across the group as she exited with staff in hand. Friday February fell to her knees and bowed to them before standing back up. "I do hope my politeness vectors have indicated the proper greeting. Welcome, your highness!" The king heartily bellowed, "Aha! You must be the helpful specter I've heard so much aboot. I have one question, where art mine daughter?"

Kage was totally nonplussed bythe sudden appearance of the... Viknadian Royal Family?

As her bombastic father spoke up, Kage has to resist the urge to back off. This man was as loud as he was large. Instead, Kage converted his twitch into a slightly scruffy bow. Having no idea what to say after that, Kage remained silent and waited.

"Whoa." EB's eyes lit up at the entrance of the chariot. Hoping no one would notice, he slowly shuffled his way over...

...to the bearyaks and held out his hands.
"I've never seen a bearyak in person. Can I pet you?" He asked them quietly.

The bearyaks nodded and allowed EB to pet them. However, the King walked over clasped a mighty hand on EB's shoulder. "By all appearances, thou art EB, the one described as having woman troubles, are you not? Let me offer you some advice: Romance tis a dance of risk and momentum...almost like sword training! Since I hear she is a warrior in her own right, I'm sure she'll appreciate a little boldness."

Meanwhile, the Queen walked over and grabbed Kage by the jaw. Though this was not an attack as she looked him over like a mother might inspect a child for stains or crumbs. Then after comparing her height to his, she began to walk around him glancing at various weaponry and gadgets on his person with a harsh and judgemental eye.

Had Kages self-control been more relaxed, the Queen (Destron Mother!) grabbing him by the jaw might have caused an... unfortunate misunderstanding. And Kage was very certain that making an aggressive move towards a warrior queen such as this, would be a very bad move!

So he remained (mostly) still as she, examined him. A small frown began to crease his brow as the Queen circled him with a very critical eye.

“Your Majesty?”
