It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@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)

Regarding Green Arrow's arrows, are they non-fatal?  As several guys, including the Flash, were shot with them?  Those two in the Flash's back would have done some serious damage.

It's not the arrows, it's where they land.  But yeah for the most part a huge plot point for Arrow has been Oliver taking 'non lethal' routes.

Also, the Flash's powers allow him to "speed-heal" from injuries that would be much more damaging to non-metahumans.

For those who watched this and also currently still watch The Flash, recall how earlier in this season Nora showed Barry a newspaper from 2049. Said newspaper featured an article that mentioned the forthcoming event that this three-parter is building up to, so this big event has been in the works for a while now.

 

That article is referencing the "Flash Missing in Crisis" article that's been part of the show since the beginning. And is from 2024, so probably not actually about next year's Crisis crossover.

Unlike the 2024 article we've been seeing since season 1, though, that new 2049 article draws explicit connections (beyond the presence of red skies) between the 'Crisis in 2024' and Crisis on Infinite Earths, though, mentioning Psycho-Pirate and the "worlds lived, worlds died" tagline.

I'm guessing that future events - perhaps this season's Flash finale - are going to further alter the timeline and cause the crisis to happen five years earlier.

Was watching this with my mom and sister when I caught the classic 60's Batman reference in part 2, when Kara picked up the Shakespeare Bust out of the box in Bruce's office.  It looked just like the one that 60's Bruce used, tilting the head back and flipping the switch to open up the secret entrance to the Batcave.

 

I was surprised my mom didn't catch that before me, since she grew up with the 60's Batman. :D

Regarding Green Arrow's arrows, are they non-fatal?  As several guys, including the Flash, were shot with them?  Those two in the Flash's back would have done some serious damage.

As I've explained repeatedly back when Arrow first started out, arrows are actually less damaging than bullets; unlike bullets, Arrows don't (usually) break off and roll around inside a body doing further damage.

Most historical deaths from arrow wounds were actually from well after getting hit, from either blood loss (arrows are designed to do more damage coming out, so they have to be removed carefully, not just grabbed-and-yanked) or infection.

In a modern setting, with paramedics less than a half-hour away and single shots to shoulders or legs, most of Oliver's victims would stand a good chance of surviving, assuming the hit wasn't instantly fatal.

(Unfortunately, mooks on the ground screaming in pain and clutching their wounds would be distracting to a modern audience raised on the "one-shot-kills" school of Hollywood gun fights. Reality is unrealistic.)

I'm pretty disappointed in the whole crossover.  The first part was a lot of fun.  The trip to Gotham in part 2 was just there to introduce Batwoman, and didn't really add much to the story.  The third part was...a conclusion?  The whole third part felt kind of nonsensical.  And then it turns out the whole thing exists as a prelude to next year's big crossover.

 

There were definitely some good, fun parts in there.  But the overall story just didn't work for me.

"Crisis on Infinite Earths" in 2019 is surely the event that The CW has building up towards, hence the name-dropping of Psycho-Pirate and his on-screen debut.

You know, for the third part being a Supergirl episode, the majority of her show's cast in the episode sure felt felt more like guest stars in their own show. :p

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Saw the three parts. Would have been better if they didn't use the name Elseworlds since it's not really Elseworldsy.

So the brain switch was just cuz Destiny wanted Flash's powers but was still figuring it out so it was just a mistake? Then he saw Supergirl (Superman wasn't there) and decided he wanted those powers instead, ok.

Man, Superman is gone again? Boo.

As much as it hurts me to have Superman gone, I prefer it over the silliness of season 1, where his only presence was on Skype, or as a fast-moving CGI effect.

The bigger issue is that National City has a large population of aliens with abilities that would be useful for attack and defense, and we've never seen any of them lift a finger/claw/tentacle when things are going bad :p

Well with the Supergirl shows pretty strong anti alien climate currently its not too hard to figure out why. Im waiting for the inevitable planetary shield and the aliens are going to pay for it.
