The US election? *rimshot*

@  Paladin : (28 February 2021 - 09:19 AM)

WHICH 2016 clown panic?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (28 February 2021 - 07:22 AM)

Didn't that come right after the 2016 clown panic? No way to make clowns not disturbing at the time, surely.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:26 AM)

The clown guise is supposed to lure kids in, it's no good if it looks sus in one glance.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:15 AM)

The new one tries too hard to be unsettling from the start. Curry's look is just a plain old clown, until he very much is not.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 February 2021 - 04:14 AM)

And Curry has a far more disturbing look at times than the newbie.

@  Sabrblade : (28 February 2021 - 02:22 AM)

And the original was a showcase of Tim Curry's delightfulness as an actor. 'Nuff said.

@  unluckiness : (27 February 2021 - 10:19 PM)

first one was a decent horror flick but the second was a mess plotwise and even the scares were worse

@  tigerhawk : (27 February 2021 - 04:57 PM)

Never understood the hype for the IT movies, too many floppy zombie chases, They're not in the least unsettling.

@  Maruten : (25 February 2021 - 06:00 PM)

It's better than the last one!

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:30 AM)

The new Wizards of the Coast logo looks stupid

@  Steevy Maximus : (25 February 2021 - 11:29 AM)

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

@  -LittleAutob... : (25 February 2021 - 10:26 AM)

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

@  repowers : (24 February 2021 - 05:33 PM)

If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  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.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

This is quite possibly the most miserable i have ever felt.

@  Hg Dragon : (21 February 2021 - 04:37 PM)

i'll be nice and not bypass the cupcake monkey, but COVID can *bleep* itself in the *bleeping* *bleeper* with a *bleeping* cactus.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 02:39 AM)

He only appeared the once in the US comics and got one follow up in the UK comic. He never suffered badass decay like Omega Supreme and the combiners.

@  Rycochet : (19 February 2021 - 05:15 PM)

Trypticon's debut issues in the marvel comic were the absolute best 'To sell a toy' comics of the book.

@  tigerhawk : (19 February 2021 - 03:04 AM)

Then the audience goes "This was a stealth Transformers film wannit!"

@  tigerhawk : (19 February 2021 - 03:03 AM)

Godzilla vs Trypticon, co written by Christina Hobson and Max Borenstein.

@  Bass X0 : (19 February 2021 - 01:36 AM)

I now want G1 Grimlock to transform into Mecha Godzilla.

@  Steevy Maximus : (17 February 2021 - 04:23 PM)

I preferred Rush when Midway made it.

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2021 - 03:13 PM)

The best Rush comes from Canada.

@  ▲ndrusi : (17 February 2021 - 02:54 PM)

In *other* wonderful and fantastic news, guess whose Kingdom Cheetor and Paleotrex FINALLY arrived today?

@  Bass X0 : (16 February 2021 - 03:07 PM)

yeah, its a good show. watch as much as you can.

@  tigerhawk : (16 February 2021 - 04:58 AM)

Goodnight Sweethearts turned out to be a gem, I only knew Nicholas Lyndhurst in Only Fools and Horses but never saw this show before.

@  Bass X0 : (15 February 2021 - 04:07 PM)

Then we got Ultra Magnus, Fortress Maximus, Dai Atlas, Megatron, Galvatron, Starscream, Thundercracker, Skywarp and Banzai-Tron in Alternity...

@  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.

VIOLENCE FROM VELOCITRON - four brutal fights to death or submission coming to you live from the fastest planet around, Velocitron! In this matchup we have Scourge - so there's no confusion in this mass multi-reality contest the big black truck from Robots in Disguise) along with a cursed totem, human varient, named Kelly. At least he has an Autobot AI on his side. Strange bedfellows! Flying in their direction from the other side of the planet is a genuine Phase Sixer and Ninja Consultant Sixshot! And his human sidekick is rocking an exo-suit while their opponents is rocking agonized facial expressions. Who wins? Let's find out!

 

The fighters have taken the field, ready for a March Mayhem style demolition derby of death. Take your seats, let us know what you've observed from this war since none of us can see the entire battlefield, and most importantly vote to tell us who won and who was subsequently left offline!

On Car Robots Robots in Disguise. Scene Kelly is driving a familiar Black Oil tanker. She happy for once.  Being lucky to get out of city before the giant robots who stalk start fighting again.  Granted their fighting a robot with six modes that are different from the one that usually fight with six modes but Kelly doesn't care she's free.  Then all of  a sudden a holographic image of Tai appears in passenger seat.  Kelly is freaking and starts to lost control.  Lucky Scourge takes control of the wheel regain control.  His face pop up mini screen address the two in his cap.

 

Scourge: Human call down.  You are part of me I expect better.  T-AI how did you hack my system to appear  in my cap and what is the meaning of this?

Kelly: The crazy robots have found me and now ghost!

T-Ai: Not a ghost. I'm a hologram specifically a Tactical Artificial Intelligence. Scourge I always had a back door to you.  You were created by scanning Optimus Prime which had a basic version of me in him at the time.  I'm surprise you haven't try to use that yet but it doesn't matter.  The world is in danger and your only one who can stop them.

Scourge: Ha ha hah! I saved the world.  You must be kidding me.  I will conquer this world for Megatron.  Have your autobots saved it.

T-Ai: The Autobots have all been defeated.  i can't get Skid-Z he's doing Wacky Races. Tow-Line is doing his best getting all the Autobot so they can be repair.  The only Autobot that's left on the planet who has a chance of fighting this Robot Ninja is technical you because you scan Optimus Prime..

Scourge: From the sounds of things. I should be thanking this Ninja bot.

T-Ai: i wouldn't thank him yet.  To get this world he had to displace creatures of equivalent power. So whoever he displace is non trap in another world. This ninja bot has six mode and he had can only displace Megatron to get here  and my Koji was displace for his human ally. His presence was enough to distract the autobots allowing ninjabot to defeat them

Scourge: MEGATRON IS TRAP! THIS WILL NOT STAND! For glory of the decepticons he must be rescued.  All right T-Ai I shall help ya this time.

T-Ai: Thats wonderful! I'll send ya all the information we have.  Will save the world!

Kelly: What about me. I don't want any part of this!

Scourge: Human, we have our orders. Megatron most be saved and only we have the power to stop this six changing ninjabot and his human ally.

Kelly: ME! WHAT!?

Scourge: Human, you have been present in all the major battles of our war.  Only you have the presence to survive and subdue his human ally. I hate to admit it.  Without you i may not be able to defeat this robot.

Kelly: Oh my well, as long as get a LONG VACTION away from you crazy robots and maybe some new clothes for my racing queen career and will have a deal.

Scourge: Excellent.  Operation Rescue Megatron is a go.

T-Ai: Opening ground bridge good luck you two.

Kelly: Whats happen to the road! Why does this always happen to me.

Scourge: I always wanted to use one of this things.

Sixshot might be Kung Fu fighting, with moves like lightning.

But he’s quickly learning that its a little bit frightening to face the Expert timing of Scourge and his... SWORD OF FURY!!

Don't underestimate Sixshot.  He's an expert ninja, and the Sword of Fury can't cut what Scourge can't see, while Sixshot's white deco is perfect for camoflage in...the...there's no snow on Velocitron?!  Oh crap.

Can't confirm but I'm hearing rumors that Sixshot has offered to submit if the kid gets to live and the job gets finished and he still gets paid. Don't know if this is Fake News or a prelude to Scourge moving onto the next round. What has everyone else heard/seen?

All the evidence i’ve seen does at least point to this Witwicky, in comparison to the others, deserving to live.

Scourge may be a Bad Guy™, but T-AI can counter that i’m sure.

Status update: Scourge has magnanimously accepted Sixshot's proposal with one slight alteration - they're keeping Daniels exo-suit which, barring some miracle comeback this evening, Kelly will be rocking in the next round.


Daniel cried. Sixshot told him to shut up and quit while you're behind. :D
