All this awesome SDCC news is really making these boards run slowly.

Racism must be stopped. No matter the cost.

Ok, ok. Enough of the puns and let's all thank Kal for the amaizeing job he did.

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.

@  Nevermore : (15 July 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Right, because with Amazon, it's just the employees that have to step in dog shit while having no space to breathe.[/slightexaggeration]

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 July 2019 - 01:03 PM)

At least I can use Amazon without losing the ability to breath or step in dog shit.

Havent seen the new ep yet but from the last ep, I realized that Farhenheit the super sonic man is a parody homage to Freddie Mercury with speed powers cuz Mercury is a speedster god.

 

edit - saw the new ep.  Pleeeeeease don't do the love triangle thing.  But it would be interesting to see the daughter of fake Dr. Strange come back for some daughter daughter fights (muhahahaha!).  I didn't realize Sirena has a mutation.  Or Brown Widow was decently competent.  And, speak of the devil, I'm tickled that the Think Tank is still alive!  and we saw a superhero!  (what's their connection?)

 

I recognized Paul Atriedes (from Dune).  Von Helping is very cool.  What happened to Hank's tenants?

 

Fave part was the glass shattering, hahahaha

 

How many eps is this season?

I only saw the Tolerance ep today. Where are the comments? It's a GREAT episode!

Three different things happening at the same time. Dean revisiting the Halloween guy and finding that red Helper, that was soul searching but... it didn't help the poor Helper. He's still just satisfied with staying. But could someone explain how being called Rusty gave Dean an epiphany to appreciate his dad? I missed something there.

Dermot was a surprise! Upgrade! How in the world did he get in OSI when they wouldn't even let Hank in, even though he is majorly qualified? And the lovelorn pair? So sad. But man, they reeeeeally need more female voice actors.

Rusty mediating DID kick ass! I was impressed. For once. Good job.

What I hate is they finally have Shore Leave back and they cut a flippered knuckle brawl between him and Phantom Limb?! Boo! It would have rocked! And Shore Leave got off without a scratch!

Because that means that Rusty is a clone, too (possibly of Jonas Sr, since I could totally see Jonas doing something like that).

Nah, Rusty isn't a clone (he IS probably Monarch's half-brother, though).  More that it was sort of the last nudge towards realizing how horribly Jonas Sr. treated people (and robots), and what a crappy life his own dad must've had.

That totally flew by me until you mentioned it.  I doubt Rusty is a clone of Jonas, more likely the clone vat technology that Rusty used for his boys was a leftover device of his dad's, much like most of his other inventions.

You missed the part when Red Helper is saying goodbye and calls Dean Rusty. So if he was under the impression that Dean was Rusty and confirmed that he was a clone thinking Dean was Rusty than that implied that Rusty was cloned as well.

Yeah, the implication via Relper is definitely that Rusty is some sort of clone or otherwise artificially created/augmented being.

The biggest problem with the idea that Rusty has also been repeatedly cloned is the existence of JJ. I dont think Jonas Sr would have intentionally replicated a tumor in Rusty

I didn't catch the Rusty clone implication at all. Hmm, I dunno if Jonas would care enough to clone Rusty but he did save the Blue Morpho for a while before forgetting him. Maybe he cloned him once and the case it not like the multiple deaths that Dean and Hank got into?

I suppose Jonas Jr. could have been the result of imperfect cloning tech?  But I think it was more a case of Relper drawing too close a parallel between "made via SCIENCE" and "made via normal human reproduction."  Jonas Sr. did make both Rusty and the HELPER series, just in different ways.

But the Master knew cloning resulted in deformities. It may have been a checkovs gun about rusty being a clone. JJ may be why he stopped cloning.
Look, look... I'm going to be honest with you. 99 percent of everything I say and create is a reference.

Also apparently I sound like Dusty Rhodes.

I thought it might have something to do with knowing more about the Helpers than being mistaken for his dad.

Wait... You mean like Dean learned that Helpers were mistreated and when Relper mistook him for his dad, Dean realized that Rusty actually visited Ben and Relper in the past. Like, his dad was also looking for emotional support and someone to talk to, same as what Dean did?

So he empathized with his dad, knowing they grew up kinda the same?

Hmm... maybe that's the intended take away too?
