If everyone would just have the exact same opinions as me then we wouldn't have this problem

@  Kalidor : (24 February 2021 - 01:49 PM)

It just depends on what it is. It is preferable to take it to P&R though. But sometimes current news as it's happening is less restrictive.

@  fourteenwings : (24 February 2021 - 12:18 AM)

Huh, good point (x3)

@  ▲ndrusi : (23 February 2021 - 11:46 AM)

Yeah. 1. People treat it like Twitter. 2. There's no "take it to P&R" since there's no P&R for the Shoutbox. 3. There's similarly no way to avoid either subjects or people in the Shoutbox since there's no division and it doesn't respect the ignore function, so people end up engaging when they normally wouldn't.

@  fourteenwings : (23 February 2021 - 10:56 AM)

Is there something about the Shoutbox that just means we get politics taking over the thing at least once a week?

@  wonko the sane? : (23 February 2021 - 08:26 AM)

At least your government is willing to talk about the collapsing medicare system. In quebec, their ignoring it in favour of talking about language again! Oh, and unconstitutionally denying access to eduction.

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:52 AM)

At least here in my home province of Ontario we have a conservative gov't who doesn't want to cuz $$$$, but the argument is that they'll end up paying in medical care anyways for those sick people so why not?

@  Shockwave 75 : (23 February 2021 - 07:51 AM)

We have paid sick leave here in Canada too, but it's not very much and not everyone has it. So we're trying to get the gov't to extend it, and give it to everyone.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:23 AM)

The only reason people still go to work despite being sick is because they feel emotionally obliged to serve their employer.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Some people abuse the system by somehow getting sick with a different plague every five weeks.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:20 AM)

Those six weeks are out of the employer's pocket by legal mandate. If you're still sick after those six weeks, the health insurance company takes over the payment.

@  Nevermore : (23 February 2021 - 02:19 AM)

That's the good thing in Germany - we have legally mandated paid sick days. Six weeks (!) for a single cause (consecutive or recurring, as long as it's the same cause; reinfections long after the fact don't count), Everytime the employee gets sick with a new cause, another six weeks start.

@  tigerhawk : (22 February 2021 - 04:48 PM)

That's how my family got sick, my brothers a teacher, he has a class for expelled students, they gave full attendance these past few lockdowns out of sheer boredom, they can turn in sick and break isolation and he nor the other staff, who also got sick, couldn't do anything about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (22 February 2021 - 03:03 PM)

Yeah, pretty sure the only reason people don't stay home when they're sick is that the vast majority of society lives paycheque to paycheque, and they can't afford even one missed day of work.

@  -LittleAutob... : (22 February 2021 - 11:27 AM)

That's unfortunate... I know masks can be annoying, but I think not being able to breath comfortably for a while is better than actually having the virus and not being able to breath at all. bUt Oh, pEoPLe dOn'T bELiVe ThE dAmN vIrUs Is rEaL

@  wonko the sane? : (22 February 2021 - 08:28 AM)

Hahahaha! Oh, you're serious. Yeah, no one is going to do that. Far too many are in positions where they simply cannot afford the time off, and most of the rest are the kind who won't wear the mask in a global pandemic, never mind when they alone have the sniffles.

@  Shockwave 75 : (22 February 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I just hope a take-away from this will be for people to stay home when they're sick, and if they have to go out, wear a mask so as not to spread their illness.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 February 2021 - 08:25 PM)

I think it's mostly the masking that's kept the flu season down so much, and that's unlikely to be kept up for that long. I'm sure there'll be some people who keep wearing masks for years after this, but I suspect a larger number are anticipating people able to toss them once vaccinations are complete.

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2021 - 05:27 PM)

Same in canada. Doctors report it to be basically non-existant. I kinda hope they keep some stuff up after everyone is vaccinated. Like hand sanitizer at store entrances, and actually cleaning the shopping carts.

@  tigerhawk : (21 February 2021 - 05:17 PM)

On the plus side cold and flu cases are down 80% this winter thanks to lockdowns, or at least that's the case in the UK.

@  Sabrblade : (15 February 2021 - 12:04 PM)

Heh, that new Binaltech comic that Ichikawa wrote for one of the Japanese Generations books even had the other Dinobots make fun of Grimlock for his "Autobot Car" body.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 February 2021 - 12:03 PM)

They got that rescue bot grimlock that turns into a motorcycle. That's... pretty neat...

@  Otaku : (15 February 2021 - 11:35 AM)

Just to make Grimlock feel more "wrong", they even highlight how his character just seems ill-suited for a sports car alternate mode in his own backstory.  Hindsight is 20/20, so I now wish they'd made a T-rex that transformed into a sportscar.  Still probably would have been as much or more of a pain to transform, but at least it'd feel more like Grimlock. :D

@  Rycochet : (13 February 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Some Alternators were fine, then you have Grimlock/Wheeljack, with three transformers worth of fiddly and a giant buttflap.

@  Telly : (13 February 2021 - 01:49 AM)

Dee stood silently at the arrival of one of her countryman. He was handsome and spoke with a strength of tone that made you believe that he would indeed do what he said he would do.

"I'm sure I could take you on quite the fantastic voyage."


Night Cap had been willing to stay quiet, but life doesn't give him many opportunities like this.

"Oh you think you're quite the traveler?"

...

"I'm over here, sir. Down here."

Behold the talking pony. Pawny. Whatever they call it.

"How far away do you think I'm from?"

The man initially seemed annoyed at Kage's interruption but instead focused on Beathra's deduction. "Indeed, Viknadia is the most mighty land there is! It's just that sometimes it is best to ply one's trade elsewhere." When Night Cap spoke, Marguerite practically jumped, "Eek! It talks?" However, the man scoffed, "Bah, tis merely enchanted cattle. What of worth would he say?"

Meanwhile, a much paler man of similar attire walked up to Dee holding a drumstick and munching on something most fowl. She didn't recognize him but he greeted her with a cordial expression. "Oh hey, Princess. Pretty warm down here, eh?" Pausing, he then extended the drumstick and said, "Oops, where are my manners. Want some?"

Kage scowled at the increasingly pompous intruder. Voice no less sharp than before, he said.

"You continue to present a dim view of your land, if your default reaction to the unusual is disdain. Look to your Princess for an object lesson in manners and intelligence."

Turning to Marguerite, Kage said in a much more normal tone.

"Yeah, he can talk. The reasons are... complicated. However, he is far smarter and far less cattle than this 'sailor' would have you think."

Beathra shot Kage a look and continued with the boisterous sailor.

 

"Aye, aye, Lady Destron has told us much of the northern lands and their breathtaking beauty!" he enthused, "One can only imagine what might draw you from them!  Myself, I am but a wandering bard, singer and songwrite, but I know well that, to undertake such a journey, demands the expectation of a bountiful return."

As he listened to Beathras words, Kage understand what the man was doing. He also understood that his own reactions weren't exactly helping. So he caught Beathras eye and nodded silently. Clasping his hands behind his back, Kage waited silently to see what happened next.

"Perhaps another time my friend, though I thank you for the kind offer." Dee gave him an appropriately deep curtsy. But then turning to the other man she put her hand on her hilt.  "A man of your skill and stature should have been sworn into the royal guard by now based on your age sir... that you are not is surely a loss to the guard, what have you found in the southern lands that has kept you here?"   Dee turned back to the second man.  "As your friend says... it is ungoddessly warm here."

The first man seemed to have mounting annoyance but then paused and smiled. Giving an exaggerated bow that was very much a mirror of the one that Kage gave Moscareina, he said, "Forgive my manners, I would hate to sully the name of my homeland. Quite the bountiful return is expected and there are many great wonders to behold out on the water. Speaking of which, it is probably best that we be on our way." Placing something that looked akin to an icy pearl into Marguerite's hand and closing her fingers around it, he started to saunter off. Looking to his friend, he said, "Come along. No need for us to linger aboot." The other man shrugged and followed as he continued munching on the drumstick.

Cattle.

 

It's a good thing Night Cap isn't covered in feathers or he'd be unable to stop himself from puffing up into an angry ball right now. At least he assumes it works that way.

 

As is, only his ears betray his tiny fury to the outside world.

Howard has spent this entire conversation sitting cross-legged in the air, supporting himself with one arm on his staff like a street performer. Given the natural tendencies of humanity to block panhandlers from both sight and memory, it's uncertain whether either of the men noticed him. As he bounces his over to his friends like a misaligned scarecrow, he shrugs. "As dramatic entrances guh, mi ave seen betta."

"Aye," said Beathra, nodding his head thoughtfully, "And it did seem odd... did either of those men seem like they were trying to be gods? We may be on the wrong track, but they are our best option right now, so we should probably keep an eye on them."

"That guy was kind of rude so I don't think I really want his gift. They called you princess so maybe you'll want...

...eek!"

Once Marguerite opened her hand to hand Dee the pearl, she melted into a puddle of water that then instantly disappeared. The two men then started running.

For a second Kage froze, as a person literally melted in front of him. It's not like he hadn't seen some awful things over the years. It was that this was some random act inflicted on a total innocent.

Teeth clenched, Kage drew his blade and charged after the retreating men. Either they would undo what they did (he hoped), or he would make them tell him how.

"Get back here!"

As Kage ran off, Beathra turned to Destron and Night Cap.

 

"Follow him, I suspect he will need help." he said, voice bristling with barely restrained anger.

 

Now turning to Howard, he continued, "Let's you and I head wide and cut them off.  Hopefully they will be too distracted by the bellowing Knight and his entourage to notice that two of their number are missing."

Night Cap doesn't need to be told twice. They're running, he's running. It's a reflex.

 

It does vaguely occur to him that he doesn't know quite what he plans to do if he catches his much larger foes. He'll figure it out when he gets there.

The Viknadian man slowed down until he was jogging in place as he spoke to Kage. "Why are you so mad? Wait, you don't have those things here? That explains a lot. It's just teleportation. Probably looks way worse if you've never seen one of those before.

Unless...she has teleportation allergies. If so...I'm sorry."

Kages rage cooled, turning to an icy fury, but not improving. The fact that Marguerite was alive was good to hear. What had actually been done to her, was not. Kage approached the jogging man, blade up and clearly implying dire consequences should the man do something... stupid.

"So it's kidnapping then, is it? Couched in talk of high adventure bountiful rewards and how beautiful she is. He gave no warning, she had no choice! You cannot just take whatever, or whoever you want.

And no, we don't have those.

Who are you? Who is he?"
