It's completely pointless... whch is exactly the point. Hundreds of workers showing up 50 minutes before their shift is over.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:49 PM)

We're on strike until midnight tomorrow (Tuesday->Wednesday). Which means I will clock in at midnight and work until my shift is over... 50 minutes later.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2018 - 02:48 PM)

Hahaha, awesome.

But The Pillows prefer to kill you with Poison Rock'N'Roll

@  Rodimus Supreme : (09 December 2018 - 10:23 AM)

Pillows can kill you softly.

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 07:26 AM)

His song.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (09 December 2018 - 05:34 AM)

But is anything killing you softly?

@  Pennpenn : (09 December 2018 - 03:03 AM)

Oh don't be ridiculous. Some things are killing us quickly!

@  Rodimus Supreme : (08 December 2018 - 10:46 PM)

Isn't everything just killing us all slowly?...

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2018 - 09:23 PM)

Except the planet of junk actually fosters life, as opposed to the garbage patch which is just killing us all slowly.

@  RichardT1977 : (08 December 2018 - 11:11 AM)

I realized the other day that the Planet of Junk/Junkion is the interstellar counterpart to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 11:50 PM)

The Wheel of Time turns, and Ages come and pass, leaving memories that become legend. Legend fades to myth, and even myth is long forgotten when the Age that gave it birth comes again. In one Age, called the Third Age by some, an Age yet to come, an Age long past, a wind rose in the Mountains of Mist. The wind was not the beginning. There are neither beginnings nor endings to the turning of the Wheel of Time. But it was a beginning.

Always hopeful yet discontent, he knows changes aren't permanent, but change is!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 07:16 PM)

Nonsense. Everything changes, the cycle is an illusion.

@  Waspinator : (07 December 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Turning, turning, turning through the years. Minutes into hours, and the hours into years. Nothing changes, nothing ever can. Round about the roundabout. Round and round and back where you began!

@  Pennpenn : (07 December 2018 - 06:56 PM)

The change was you got something off your wishlist. Be happy about that if nothing else!

@  wonko the sane? : (07 December 2018 - 02:09 PM)

I finally got something off my steam wishlist! but managed to add another title immediately: so there was no change. Dang it.

@  Dekafox : (07 December 2018 - 01:46 PM)

Wrong Phantom thieves!

@  Dekafox : (07 December 2018 - 11:04 AM)

I thought they were just trying to take the Lupin Collection pieces

@  MEDdMI : (07 December 2018 - 09:25 AM)

@  unluckiness : (06 December 2018 - 08:57 AM)

The red plastic holding it together kinda worries me. It's the gummi kind of clear plasstic andmoving it feels uncpomfortably close to tearing.

@  Shrug : (06 December 2018 - 08:17 AM)

Yeah, that happened to mine a few weeks ago. Common problem.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 08:05 AM)

Oh for cryin' out loud, the yellow part on the back hinge of my TR Weirdwolf broke. Bleh. At least the red is still there I guess.

@  unluckiness : (06 December 2018 - 04:59 AM)

Man, I still haven't gotten past Rock Tunnel.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:28 AM)

You know nothing.. NOTHING! Eevee is our lord and savior! He will give us the cuteness we need! ;) No seriously.. Both Pika and Eevee in the games are way OP and Eevee can learn elemental moves to replace evolving.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:22 AM)

It's cute, what other point does it need?

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 03:17 AM)

I can get Pikachu not evolving, the species has had decades of not evolving. But Eevee without evolution seems... pointless?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither can Pikachu... And you don't need Eevee to evolve!

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 December 2018 - 03:15 AM)

Neither of them can evolve as starters.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

Also damn it my mouse wheel broke. What a pisser.

@  Pennpenn : (06 December 2018 - 02:30 AM)

It can't evolve.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (06 December 2018 - 02:29 AM)

How dare you! You KNOW Eevee is the obvious choice!

@  wonko the sane? : (05 December 2018 - 05:48 PM)

Finished mine a few days ago, and just bought myself (I really shouldn't have, but did anyway.) let's go pikachu with the pokeball.

@  Cybersnark : (05 December 2018 - 03:47 PM)

Mostly. There's a book en route to my mom's house from the UK and I don't know if it'll arrive before January.

@  Cybersnark : (05 December 2018 - 03:46 PM)

Christmas shopping: complete.

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

(which would lead to a bunch of bad jokes about him selling a line of cashews, almonds, and pecans)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 December 2018 - 12:37 PM)

That would make sense per the precedent of Kamen Rider OOO ("Kamen Raidā Ōzu").

@  RichardT1977 : (05 December 2018 - 12:35 PM)

Wouldn't it be pronounced "Kamen Rider D's"?

anyone else watch this? i thought it was really good, much better than any of the sequels we got. i dont want to say too much so as to avoid spoilers, but if you liked the original movie then i think youll like this. 

 

first 2 eps are free, but they offer a 30 day free trial. as there are only 10 eps its plenty of time to watch it all (unless youre like me and binge it lol)

 

 

if they put it on dvd, ill more than likely buy it. course then id have to get the original movie on dvd as well...

It's had my attention for a while now. I'm hoping to get some time this weekend. I'll watch at least the first couple episodes, then do the free trial assuming I enjoy it.

I marathoned this last night after watching the first two episodes. It got me to sign up for Youtube Red's free trial

 

It has zero right being this good, considering the premise.

i'm up to episode 5 (apparently convalescing after major surgery is conducive to binging, who knew?)...and I'm really liking this. its simple, doesn't take itself too seriously, and just seems to be having fun.

 

Really, right now the only thing I hate about the show is Daniels Wife.

I thought his was going to be a train wreck of a show, once I realized it was actually real. When I first saw a trailer I thought it was a joke.

But. This show is amazing. They managed to capture the feel, magic and cheesyness of the 80s in it. And then all the plot twists with that’s his son, but his daughter and his student.....so funny and exciting. Not to mention that final episode, especially the final scene....wow.

Spoiler

 

i had an idea about this show and the way it should eventually end. i think daniel and johnny will eventually have to end up merging dojos. miyagi-do is too passive, while cobra-kai is too aggressive. put the teachings together and i think youd really have something, and maybe thats what the real balance is they talk about

I just finished the free ones. I like it. Not sure I can binge it fast enough for a 30 day trial, though. I hope it goes to DVD.

I like how Johnny and Daniel are neither of them rosy angels. They are both wrong.

There are some technical notes, most of which would be way too boring to show (like cop shows almost never show scenes of doing paperwork).
1: Does Johnny have the credentials? To run a Dojo, you have to be at least a 3rd Dan blackbelt. Seems to me that after losing the tournament, Johnny probably left. Did he study somewhere else?
2: (and this ties back to the original movie), no one under 18 should have a blackbelt. Period. How can you master the basics (ie: what is required to get said shodan rating) when you body is changing on a monthly if not weekly basis. My own instructor, in 45+ years of teaching, only ever awarded 1 blackbelt to an 18 year old, and he was exceptional (it wasn't me). Blackbelt requires 4-7years of training for 1st (shodan). 2nd requires a couple more (sometimes there's a half-step called Shodan-Ho). 3rd requires a few more years. So, assuming there was any legitimacy to Cobra Kai, Johnny would have had to train for about 5-7 more years after losing the tournament. Did he? Somehow I don't think he'd want to train with Kreese after being strangled by him.
3: Cobra Kai is a copyrighted organization. Johhny would have to file paperwork with them. Otherwise they can go after him for copyright infringement.
4: Johnny would also have to file paperwork with one of the Japanese international karate associations.
5: Johnny tells his student without showing him. The kid clearly doesn't know how to make a fist, and he doesn't know how to do push-ups on knuckles. He tries to distribute his weight across the whole hand rather than properly focusing on the Index and Middle finger knuckles.
 
I am beginning to be concerned about the quality of what is shown here.
Of course, all of that is just the first student. Johnny is out of practice, and clearly has no idea what is required in running a dojo. Somehow, I don't think Kreese had his advanced students teaching the beginners (something that is supposed to start at 5th kyu/green belt)--that would have been yielding or sharing power.


Johnny didn't know he had to have a license and insurance. I don't know what the writers of the show do and don't know, but I think the straightforward interpretation is that a washed-up former karate guy got some money and said, "Hey, why not?" and is totally over his head.

Two more eps to go and loving it.

I watched the first movie with my 8-year old and he was glued to it. I was impressed. This show is a little too adult for a kid, though.
