(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

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.

Actually, teaching kids about prioritizing (do you save the guy who just crashed his truck, or do you contain the fire before it spreads out of control?) could be a good thing.

God knows, enough adults have problems understanding that their mild inconvenience is less important than other peoples' immediate safety.

Granny goes in the drink. XD

Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

also, choosing between a fire rescue and a water rescue?
 
if I choose water, who is going to put out the fire?
 
why Heatwave

Heatwave turns into a boat, so he's the one who does water rescues!

But he should have sent Chase to help Jerry. Damn it, Jerry.

There was a place nearby called Hazard Alley. It was basically a recreation of urban dangers at 1/1 scale, including a city street. The idea was they'd take school kids round in groups. You'd have to show common sense and respond to things like a house catching fire.

I was one of the two picked for the latter and we had to report it via payphone on a staged internal line. We go back and-

"Did you remember to tell them grandad is upstairs?"

"Oh, we forgot!"

"Oh dear..." *pushes button on remote, bright orange light bursts from upstairs window and a horrifying scream plays*

I've played the YouTube game a couple times now and have figured out a certain pattern to it that's a bit skewed. There are three missions in all that you can participate in: A fire rescue, a water rescue, and a final mission at the firehouse (plus some smaller sidequest objectives you can do along the way to the fire and water rescues). The final mission won't become available to you until after you complete the fire and water rescues, but there's a catch. The game wants you to do the fire rescue first and the water rescue second in order to grant you the final mission. So if you choose to do the water rescue first and the fire rescue second, you have to do the water rescue again in order to progress to the final mission. Otherwise, the game will not give the final mission as an option until you've completed the water mission only after the fire mission.

 

What's more is that the sidequest options given to you en route to the water mission differ depending on whether you do the water mission before or after the fire mission.

 

If you choose the water rescue first, you're sent straight to the waterfront with Heatwave and proceed across the water in his boat mode. Then, an island appears in front of you and you're given the choices of crossing the island on dry ground to take a shortcut to the water rescue, or staying the water by having Heatwave go around the island in boat mode. From either of these options, you eventually make it to the water rescue to partake in it.

 

But when (not if, when) you do the water rescue after the fire rescue, on your way to the waterfront with Heatwave, you're given an additional set of choices before the island ones, in which you can choose to either race Blurr to get to the waterfront quicker, or to ignore Blurr's race challenge and follow Dani's test flight path to the waterfront. From either of these choices, you eventually make it to the waterfront and proceed across the water in Heatwave's boat mode. From here, the same island choices are given, which both eventually lead to the same water rescue.

 

As for the fire rescue options, they are the same no matter what order you choose. On your way to the fire, Jerry's truck is in danger. Chief and Chase are on the scene to help, but Heatwave also gives you the choice to help out as well or to proceed to the fire while the others help Jerry. Either option leads to the next set of choices. A bridge you need to cross is closed and the accumulated traffic is in your way. Your options are to either go around the traffic (even though the bridge is out) or to go back and find a different route. Either option eventually leads you to the fire rescue.

 

For the final mission, well, it's not much. You don't really do anything yourself (as in, there's no options for you to personally make after you choose to simply partake in the mission), but you still get all the credit for completing the mission even though the animation clearly showed Blades to be the one who singlehandedly took care of the threat all by himself.

Episodes I spotted clips from (spoilers!):
"Land Before Prime": fight with the dinos on Wayward Island
"Four Bots and a Baby": Don trying to jump the river on his motorcycle
"The Last of Morocco": High Tide being attacked by sea life
"Plus One": Quickshadow rescue Ernie from the fire at the gas station
"Transformations": Morocco attempting to abduct Cody
"One for the Ages": Evan and Myles evade Chase and Chief by dumping oil on the road
"The More Things Change...": Chase pursuing Jerry's truck over a cliff

When you do the water mission, Heatwave announces that the team's heading to the GroundBridge, but then they just drive down to the shore and Heatwave transforms to boat mode.

You and Heatwave are at the mainland training center before you start each mission, so the two kinda have to go through the GroundBridge first in order to begin each mission from the firehouse.
