business is booming.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 February 2020 - 06:49 PM)

SAmsung has you covered. Exploding phones.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Modern problems require modern solutions.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 February 2020 - 05:21 PM)

Japan seems to have a tradition of murder things where cellphones facilitate the killing instead. Like King's Game and Doubt.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 05:17 PM)

Or there's just conveniently no reception, or all of their phones are dead at the same time. Or they're just stupid and forget about them.

@  Patch : (16 February 2020 - 04:41 PM)

Now the slasher villain has to go and knock over the nearest cell tower before butchering horny teenagers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 February 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Think of all the horror and mystery movies that involve the bad guys cutting the phone line. Now think about how many people don't even have a land line to cut anymore.

@  Telly : (16 February 2020 - 03:47 PM)

its like that scene in commando. the bad guy has to get to a phone to call the big bad to tell him arnold isnt on the plane. that wouldnt happen today

@  Rycochet : (16 February 2020 - 03:18 PM)

Watching early episodes of the x-files will make you feel super old once you start to notice the techology they use, and the technology they lack.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 February 2020 - 02:49 PM)

Makes you feel old, don't it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (14 February 2020 - 02:38 PM)

While browsing Youtube vids I read these comments: 'The X Files is such an underrated show' and another 'Brent Spiner is a underrated actor' I want to punch something.

@  Otaku : (14 February 2020 - 10:41 AM)

So is that an occasion for congratulations or condolences, Telly?  I see it as a good thing, but that is a matter of personal preference; easier for me to keep straight who is who when the names don't change. XP

@  Telly : (14 February 2020 - 12:48 AM)

damn. ive been going by "telly" on here for nearly 14 years...

@  TM2-Megatron : (11 February 2020 - 08:06 PM)

I've seen it. It didn't really deliver on the title

@  Paladin : (11 February 2020 - 05:28 PM)

we don't need to see that. we're living it.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 February 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Anyone seen an old British movie called 'The Earth dies screaming' it's like a Doctor Who serial minus the Doctor.

@  Cyoti : (06 February 2020 - 05:13 PM)

iirc megatron ended up in equestria at the end of gi joe v tfs

@  wonko the sane? : (06 February 2020 - 05:02 PM)

I doubt megatron will fall for that friendship stuff.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 February 2020 - 02:04 PM)

My Little Pony/Transformers is really happening cool!

@  Paladin : (06 February 2020 - 12:49 PM)

I don't know...

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 February 2020 - 12:39 PM)

Okay, Mr. Burns. What's your first name?

@  Paladin : (06 February 2020 - 12:21 PM)

i believe you have a letter for me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (06 February 2020 - 12:11 PM)

My name is Mr Burns.

I mean, we can go straight to the source. Walt Disney himself had his own...issues and the company made its money on many stereotyped cartoons. It's almost as if the organization...changed...over...time...

This is awful. Its like no one can ever have made a mistake in the past for fear of someone using it against them to forward their own polarizing agenda. No one is allowed to evolve and move passed anything anymore. I literally hate this. Disney has made a huge mistake.

The so-called 'Court of Public Opinion' created by social media, is responsible for terrible things.

When you're young, you don't think about what you say, why ypu say it. Or, more importantly, what people might think of you years down the line.

Now though? You've got to be wise enough to never say or post anything stupid or tasteless, or shocking and think ahead, because someday, somebody somewhere can now find what you said, and destroy you with it. Becoming older, wiser, a better and more understanding person? Nope, none of it matters.

Just going to say, I'm very right-leaning. Anyone to whom this is a surprise isn't paying attention.

I think this is the stupidest thing I've ever seen...this past week.

I didn't even bother to read the tweets Gunn posted because honestly, they don't mean crap. As has been stated, I'd hate to think that something I posted decades ago, let alone something I've already apologized for and long-thought apology accepted, could come back and cost me my job now.

We've all done stupid stuff, said things we shouldn't have said. I remember things I said all the way back in middle-school that still make me cringe! I'd hate to think that all these years later that would come back and bite me in the ass.

Until the first GotG movie, I'd never even heard of them. Gunn made Disney and Marvel a shit ton of money. He did good work for them. This is something from distant past that he already apologized for and moved far...far...away from.

Right, left...doesn't matter. This is a shitty situation and it just isn't right.

I hope that however many tweets stirred the pot and got him fired from Disney, just as many tweets help get him hired somewhere else. Disney made a mistake firing him.

And right or left, hug the guy that would bring this kind of thing up just to get someone fired.

Midnights edge has a pretty good video detailing what happened with Gunn. Apparently, American news outle The Daily Caller didn't like how he expressed his political views and went hunting for dirt to smear him with.

Gunns very Leftist in his views.

You see, I have stopped doing business because of people I know longer respect. I'll refuse to go to a movie because of a certain star. I'll go to a different shopping center. I'll decide against getting certain things. I mean, I'm definitely not above boycotting something.

But to dig for dirt in order to smear someone and make them lose their job like that...that's just wrong...I don't care what side of the political isle you're on.

Hey guys. Remember when Disney released pretty racist movies?

 

What?

 

Oh? They're a different company than the were then, and have learned and grown since then?

 

Huh, what do you know.

Geoff has a lot of babies. Comic Flash was his first. But yeah, it's Lantern now.

Wait, if he introducing the full spectrum in the GL Corp movie? (Power Rangers! Haha!)

Well, how about DC giving Gunn the Suicide Squad? Maybe pick up a mutated janitor when selecting members.
