@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(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.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 04:00 PM)

He's sweeter than the average bear.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 July 2020 - 03:14 PM)

Convert him to Maple Syrup.

@  Bass X0 : (02 July 2020 - 03:10 PM)

what would Canada do with Yogi?

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

I mean, it's pretty straightforward. We start with murdering all the people we don't like, then we see how long it takes until we start murdering the people we thought we liked but only really tolerated by comparison to the first group, until eventually there's like ten people left and we're out of knives because nobody left knows how to sharpen them. Then we just kinda drift apart because even murder can eventually get boring.

This is what I'm talking about, man. No matter how many people the fascists kill, that subconscious urge to kill stuff will always be there, so they're going to just keep killing until no one's left.

There was an episode of Babylon 5 where they found a cybernetic killing machine left behind by a now-extinct alien race. It turned out that the creator had programmed it to kill everyone who didn't fit his standards for the perfect example of his race.....which meant everyone but himself because he was a lousy programmer.

I see where the confusion lies, my friend. I'm not going to kill anyone. Just exile them. To Greenland. It is beneficial to my cause to have a group of people around that I can shift my- er, societies ,um, shortcoming on. I can keep the fire alive after the crusade if there is still an ongoing reason to separate the righteous from the unrighteous in society. We can give people banished to Greenland derogatory names like "greeners" or "greenskins" as a way to strip them of their dignity. I guess calling them heretics, heathens or even infidels works just the same. But there will be a lengthy due process before anyone is exiled. First, if someone is suspected of heresy, a non-invasive investigation is conduced by the secret police. If evidence of heresy is found, the inquisition is sent in to get a confess from that accused individual using only alternative sub-torture methods. Then that person is sent to a completely fair trail to prove their innocence. Once they are found guilty they are sent to a reeducation center for conservation therapy to be set back on the straight and narrow path. If all that fails, they are exiled as a way to quarantine their corruptive ideology from the rest society. In truth, we won't exile them, we give them enough chances to repent, they will exile themselves. But if they try to resist, well, we will have to defend ourselves.

 

Note to self, learn to sharpen knives...

Sounds to me like the real problem is you have clinical paranoia and it's causing you to lash out at everything. Those feelings are just a random disorder and they're not going away no matter how many perceived threats you eliminate. What you really need is heavy duty medication.

It's paranoia if you just target the people who are different from you instead of focusing on the people who actually cause the problems.

See, the last time I heard about someone flying a cargo jet full of people into an open volcano, they did come back and cause a bit of fuss later....

If I don't kill them all off and just send them away I can claim moral high ground and justify my methods to the people. And it's cheaper then keeping them all in prison. Plus, cargo planes are expensive. It's much cheaper to just throw them over board and hope they can make it to shore. It will be in swimming distance but those under currents can be finicky at times.

They are sent there because they hate the order I established on society. Now they can all be on the same little island where they can be watched. They can plot all they want, not like I was going to leave any infrastructure for them to accomplish anything. I'll patrol the waters, but I'm not going to send any guards to watch over on them on their island. Think of it has their own little nation of sin. An remind of what the world will be like without my divine guidance.

Topple by who? You are simply looking at the correction aspect of it. I will solve so many of the world's problems that sending a few unruly separatists to live in isolation to maintain public stability would be considered a positive thing. No one is going to overthrow a government because they put a terrorist behind bars. Or, you know, free range them.
