I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

@  Telly : (16 October 2019 - 10:48 PM)

my walmart is acting true to form. as soon as mirage arrives from amazon, my walmart gets his entire wave in after months of having wave 1 clogging the pegs....

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

Remind me, did the 2-parter call it the "flying island" or "floating island"?

 

Without double-checking, my gut's telling me it was the former.

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.

Naming that island "Brigadoon" is about ten times less stupid than "Darksyde" and about a hundred times less stupid than most of AVP.

How is it any worse than "Hyperborea", "Lemuria", "Ogygia", and "Atlantis"?

 

Or heck, "Doradus"?


"Disabled people don’t have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isn’t a “special need”. It’s a basic human right. It’s a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Kind of a low bar really. I mean "Darksyde" is really, really dumb.
 

I can guarantee people woudn't hate the name Brigadoon if it was actually used in the show.

I can guarantee the article wouldn't be called that if the name hadn't been used offhand in a random supplementary source with zero connection to the series.

If we're done guaranteeing readily apparent things, literally no one even implied it was a bad name.
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

There's always the Japanese name of the ship "Terror Crusher" "Terra Crasher" "Terra Crusher" "Terror Crasher".

 

Though, is "Planet Buster" formal in any way, or was it just Rattrap's nickname for the weapon?

I'm curious as to what you all think happened to Earth in the time near the end and after the Great War. I personally like what BW Uprising did, making them and the Cybertronians on less than amicable terms. Although, other could always just be a case of, "Hey, let's not go around letting everyone know where Earth is, considering that could, y'know, erase the timestream and start another war."


Crack theory: Earth has become Holy Terra, capital of the Imperium of Man. For the Emperor!

Naming that island "Brigadoon" is about ten times less stupid than "Darksyde" and about a hundred times less stupid than most of AVP.

Why does the wiki use the dumber spelling, anyway? "Dark Side" was first used in the N64 game and was used again for IDW.

I mean, it's still dumb, but at least minimize the stupidity.
