We're not actually back, this is all a dream.

It was, we're just humoring you.

@  Arazyr : (20 November 2018 - 02:17 PM)

I was wondering if that was just me...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 November 2018 - 02:01 PM)

And we are back after that round of Forum downtime.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2018 - 06:30 AM)

Feels like it's been so long since there's been a proper storm that I've been awake for. This one even has pink lightning, which always great.

@  Pennpenn : (20 November 2018 - 06:22 AM)

So long as he has an R by his name. Even if the R is for "Recepticons"

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Sadly, my first reaction was "And I'm sure way too many people would seriously, unironically really vote for the blatant bad guy and still cheer at him while he's slaughtering the masses because they saw him on TV and he's cool."

@  Nevermore : (20 November 2018 - 06:17 AM)

Someone over at TFW2005 just discovered an old photo of political campaign signs, with one saying "Vote Megatron! Global Domination."

@  Paladin : (19 November 2018 - 07:02 AM)

let's be real. at this rate we're not lasting until 2075.

@  Maximus Ambus : (19 November 2018 - 06:34 AM)

The rest of the world may build a wall around the US in 2075.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2018 - 05:53 AM)

Tell an conservative conspiracy maniac that women are literally the Satan's spawn out to infect humanity with the gender virus that will turn everyone into communist Muslims who eat children, and they will be like, "Well of course! That makes perfect sense!"

The world is insane.

@  Nevermore : (19 November 2018 - 05:48 AM)

Geeez, I just read a story about a liberal satire Facebook page that would publish absolutely outlandish, ridiculous made-up conservative propaganda, stuff so absurd nobody with half a brain could take it seriously... and conservatives are taking it at face value.

Oh don't make me go talk to Peter Dutton. My week has been painful enough as it is...

@  Pennpenn : (18 November 2018 - 01:03 AM)

Debateable. It's a sunday anyway. Wonder if I'll still feel up and ready to go tomorrow. Don't want to take too many days off leading up to the end of the year.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2018 - 10:48 AM)

My mom won two tickets to Hamilton!

@  wonko the sane? : (17 November 2018 - 09:46 AM)

Welp, good morning so far. My brother helped me get my sister in law's christmas gift, and reminded me I still had to get my mom's calendar for next year.

@  Pennpenn : (17 November 2018 - 08:22 AM)

Oh yeah, feeling feverish. What fun.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 November 2018 - 10:07 PM)

My father used to ask his boss that question. Then he STOPPED asking, and got used to twiddling his thumbs. Made things so much easier, and didn't actually change how his bosses thought of him.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:31 PM)

So of course you wait until the end of your shift like everyone else, THEN you walk up to the manager on duty and ask him what you're supposed to do during the requested overtime.

@  Nevermore : (16 November 2018 - 07:30 PM)

Fun: The employer allows (paid) voluntary overtime, cannot backtrack on the permit, and before the regular end of your shift, you notice you're rapidly running out of work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 November 2018 - 06:27 PM)

Fear is a state of mind.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 November 2018 - 06:25 PM)

Oh stop being such a pack of drama monarchs!

I would agree.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 November 2018 - 01:15 PM)

I say yes, but I imagine many would disagree with me.

@  Paladin : (16 November 2018 - 12:34 PM)

settle a bet: is "drama queen" a gender-neutral description?

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 November 2018 - 08:38 PM)

Sounds like management is the same everywhere :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 08:12 PM)

My bosses are too busy trying to see if they can have their heads up their own asses while still being able to kiss the asses of everyone above them. It'd be amusing to watch if I wasn't one of the ones trying to get everything done to cover for it.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:05 PM)

He's living by the standard "bow to those below you; kick at those above you. You got more people below you than above you."

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:04 PM)

Whenever we go on strike, he's there with us. He told me that this is the only completely legal way for him to show his own bosses the finger,

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 07:03 PM)

Well, this guy has been getting flak from above, it's just that he doesn't care. He's doing what he thinks is right. He's easily the smartest of my superiors, and also the one with the biggest balls.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2018 - 05:24 PM)

Must be nice, having a boss that cares.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 November 2018 - 01:03 PM)

Indeed.

@  Echowarrior : (15 November 2018 - 11:58 AM)

That's a good superior.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:21 AM)

Arguing in my favor that I was working under sub-par conditions, there were problems with sudden halts of the conveyor and other issues that affected my productivity, and besides, why was this guy giving a feedback to one of HIS subordinates, wich was his job?

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Also, yesterday he stood up for me when a superior from the department I was sent to was giving me a productivity feedback.

@  Nevermore : (15 November 2018 - 06:19 AM)

So this week all of my superiors save one guy are absent, and I'm not noticing a difference. Which says a lot about this guy.

Yay, another "wait to see if the DVR actually updates before the episode airs" bit of fun, because S7Ep14 is still scheduled for this weekend.

It was like this for the Roller Coaster of Friendship special the last time, airing on Friday but most schedules still showing something else airing.  It's kinda irritating.

 

Also, unlike when Roller Coaster of friendship was actually shown as scheduled to air again on the next day for Saturday, Yakity-Sax isn't shown to air the next day on Saturday at all.  So I don't know if it'll air again on Saturday the 21st as well or not.

So are we going to chat during today's surprise episode?
 
Guardian Prime - Today at 1:38 PM
I'm here. Not sure about anyone else, being this new episode is on an odd day/time.
The Comcast/Xfinity Guide updated a short while ago to show Yakity-Sax, but I don't think other guides have updated yet.
 
FnuAw - Today at 2:00 PM
The moment of truth. Here we go.
 
Guardian Prime - Today at 2:02 PM
Yup, I've heard music that sounds like animals suffering before.
 
FnuAw - Today at 2:02 PM
Angel has some ability to communicate without words.
 
Guardian Prime - Today at 2:03 PM
The instrument looks like a combination of bagpipes and....I have no idea.
 
FnuAw - Today at 2:04 PM
Brass bagpipes.
 
Guardian Prime - Today at 2:06 PM
Oh no! That poor bird.

What have they been calling that instrument? The synopsis calls it a Zenithrash, but the mane 6 have been calling it something else.
Not perfect. YAKS SMASH!
"I kinda wasn't expecting that." Neither was I, Pinkie.
 
FnuAw - Today at 2:31 PM
Pinkamena shows surprising self awareness.
 
Guardian Prime - Today at 2:32 PM
The episode was a bit on the odd side, but still alright.
 
FnuAw - Today at 2:33 PM
Not bad. Just inconsequential.
 
Guardian Prime - Today at 2:35 PM
Apparently, not only does Pinkie's mane deflate when depressed, she'll also gradually lose all her color the more depressed she gets. Don't think I've seen her turn completely gray before now.
 
Guardian Prime - Today at 2:40 PM
Guess that's it for now. Gotta get some things done. Later, Fnu.

Pretty pointless episode but it had some surprises.

Surprise!  Hug you if you don't watch our network 24/7!  Sigh.  (ETA: I did see it thanks to the minimal advance warning, but still a bit of a middle finger to people who, you know, had plans for a Friday afternoon.  School may be out, but kids still have stuff to do outside the house.)

Caught the episode earlier today. It wasn't bad, and it gave us probably our best yak portrayal that didn't involve young yaks in general (or Yona in particular), but it's hardly stellar.

Soft Snow, it aired, but not at a regular time or in any way that a DVR would pick up (it still showed as an older episode even after being recorded).  You might be able to find it On Demand, but it won't get an airing under its own name until August.
