@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

We have a cornfield? Can I get a few ears?

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I know Shockwave's super mode is pretty lame and Magnus is kinda greebly but it's not that bad.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:38 AM)

Though with the luck and caliber of leaders we've had of late in the darkest timeline, maybe it's too much to hope for.

@  TM2-Megatron : (16 July 2019 - 12:36 AM)

Just like democracy, it's not perfect but better than the present alternatives. Capitalism as it's practiced today won't be able to weather the coming wave of automation, though. Best to plan for it and hope for a gentle transition rather than the aforementioned collapse

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Capitalism is the worst amiright? Sent from my iPhone

@  Vexwing : (15 July 2019 - 11:24 PM)

Because the collapse is gonna be just great.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 July 2019 - 10:41 PM)

Let's hope this is late stage and we're on the cusp of something better.

@  abates : (15 July 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Late stage capitalism is the absolute best.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 July 2019 - 01:33 PM)

So, welcome to all retail, everywhere.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:24 PM)

Oh, and Greenpeace also conducted a protest at a German Amazon facility, to protest against Amazon's practice of throwing customer returns in the trash.

Yup, I remember the orb crushing thing. What I don't remember is how Jonas died.

I looooved the second ep! So much Jaws references! Everything was falling into place too! I know in an interview, the creators said that the show's main theme is failure. But i remember they said they want to move away from that. Pleeeeease let it be hope or success! I want everybody to have a happy ending somehow.

I don't recall when Monarch killed the bro though. I think I can recall the Problem reference.

Red Death is such a nice guy.

They've never explicitly stated how Jonas died.  They've made hints about things here and there, but there's been no smoking gun.

No, that was the same episode I believe, but that was the great grandad or something. Brock asks Jonas' former body guard about it, and it is implied that he killed jonas due to Jonas having the orb thing.

agreed.  They need someone whose fully embraced the costumed life without the mafia overtones, but is willing to take it as seriously as possible.  Quite frankly, Phantom Limb is an embarassment as a leader.

Latest episode really tied up about 90% of the loose threads that had been dangling for the last couple of seasons.  It was nice to get pretty satisfying answers to a lot of the mysteries and now we can keep moving forward.  To be honest, I like Venture Bros. best for its episodic comedy with occasional bits of continuity.  Lately it's seemed a little to "lore heavy," and I think this trilogy to start the season may be their way of getting out from under that.

I just realized something Rusty and his dad are a lot alike when it comes to sons.  Both have twin boys and both have a son who is a half brother to the twins.

We all knew that Venture Sr. was a bit of a dick from previous episodes, but from what we learned here... he was downright evil.

I see it more as being a concentrated dose of his worst side.  "A bit of a dick" is still probably the best description of him, but without seeing any of the good side in this episode (or very very little of it), all the crap he pulled on a supposed friend comes across as even worse.

All we've seen of him in previous episodes/flashbacks hasn't portrayed any good side to speak of.  The 'Dr. Quimm' flashback, the kids he left in the tunnels, Spanikopita... he's never really shown any honest 'good' side outside of a facade for the cameras.

Oh man.  I thoroughly enjoyed the heck out of this episode.  It makes me want to go back and watch all the previous seasons again because I've clearly forgotten a lot.

 

At the very least, I think I'll watch the episode again because it was that good.

Its been a week but I just saw the third ep. Holy cow it was great! So that's how Blue Morpho was Jonas's hatchet man (I remember he did seduce Dr Zinn!). Man, I hope Vendetta Venturion is still alive. Jonas, I'm sure, still is. I'd rather have JJ come back tho. Dunno why they decided to kill him off.

I'm going to theorize that Blue Morpho is actually gay. Was he drunk when he got tricked to the orgy? He was gay as Vendatta but its better to believe that he originally was, instead of the evil switch turning him gay. Unless he was just into other mechanical men. Or Jonas programmed him to be gay as a twisted version of loving him as loyalty. I'm kidding, haha.

I kinda miss the superheroes introduced last season. Well, I miss the warrior woman. Isn't she dating Brock or did she just use him?
