@  Ashley : (21 April 2019 - 10:08 PM)

They frequently do, but yeah there's no rule. Google will usually answer it for a specific restaurant, though

@  TheMightyMol... : (21 April 2019 - 02:57 PM)

Depends on the restaurant and the area. There's no universal rule about it.

@  TM2-Megatron : (21 April 2019 - 02:41 PM)

I thought restaurants were one of the few things that stayed open on holidays, along with movie theatres and the like

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 April 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Well here I am hungry on a Sunday afternoon and I head to Chipotle only to find out right then and there that the place is closed for Easter. Yay.

@  MEDdMI : (19 April 2019 - 09:21 PM)

oof, yikes. Good luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 April 2019 - 09:18 PM)

We're in the middle of a kitchen reno and NOTHING will be done until tuesday. I could beat a four day weekend with a hammer right now if it meant I could use my stove again.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

Can't beat 4 day weekends either.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 April 2019 - 06:47 PM)

I prefer later shifts myself, but my 3 day weekend shift isn't bad. Nice to work without those administration busy bodies poking around.

@  Nevermore : (19 April 2019 - 04:12 AM)

Yeah, traffic is a plus as well. Rarely got any trouble getting to work on late shift (even with the neverending construction site on the highway), and when my shift is over, there's hardly any traffic at all anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (18 April 2019 - 06:27 PM)

while I don't have weekends consistently off, working 2nd shift isn't so bad. I'm more likely to do stuff before work than after (when I'm already tired). Plus no rush hour traffic

@  TM2-Megatron : (18 April 2019 - 05:03 PM)

Switching shifts constantly is never good for one's health. There was a time when I worked overnights steady for about 2 years; did wonders for my health, as well

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Don't miss early shift (and especially switching back and forth every two weeks) a bit.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:36 PM)

Man, permanent late shift really has done wonders for my overal well-being. Never having to get up early for work, staying up late, weekends off... a ot of my coworkers think I'm crazy, but late shift is really my preferred shift.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

(My total lack of sleep on that day might have contributed, though.)

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

At noon, it was warm.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:33 PM)

On Monday, we went on strike early in the morning, I was also wearing to jackets and gloves and my toes and fingers were freezing.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 April 2019 - 04:31 PM)

Nope, right now my days are doing that. Frigid at night (Well, just below zero, but still.) and warm enough to be always be ill prepared during the day.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:28 PM)

Today it's so warm I had to take a shower to wash off the sweat after a lengthy bike trip.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

This past Friday I was wearing two jackets and winter gloves outside and took a hot bath when I returned home.

@  Nevermore : (18 April 2019 - 04:27 PM)

Is "April weather" an issue in other countries as well, or is that specifically a German phenomenon?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Well, when you understand the history of the area it make sense. It's basically a series of countries buying the place, moving in, saying "we rule you people now", and the locals shrugging and responding, "okay, you have fun with that".

@  Sabrblade : (16 April 2019 - 07:58 AM)

When did we all turn into Henry Higgins?

@  unluckiness : (16 April 2019 - 03:16 AM)

To be fair, most Americans can't get the hang of English, so I can understand why.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:15 AM)

(And yeah, Calliope is a Greek muse, not French, but the street was named BY the French when they took over.)

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 April 2019 - 03:10 AM)

In New Orleans there's a bunch of streets with French names that are pronounced by locals with a more English emphasis, for example "Calliope Street" is pronounced "CAL-lee-ope".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 11:56 PM)

I figured as much for Canadians.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 11:37 PM)

hm; whenever I've heard people talk about the school they said it the same way as the cathedral...but I guess that's in Canada, so they're probably more familiar with the cathedral than the school

@  Dracula : (15 April 2019 - 11:11 PM)

There's plenty of place names in the US like that. Around here we have an "el doh-RAY-doh," and up north there's a Cairo that's pronounced "kay-roh"

@  RichardT1977 : (15 April 2019 - 09:56 PM)

Yeah, the common pronunciation of the University is probably the reason most Americans don't pronounce the Cathedral name correctly.

@  Arazyr : (15 April 2019 - 08:03 PM)

That's my understanding of how the two are supposed to be pronounced as well.

@  Echowarrior : (15 April 2019 - 07:42 PM)

When I'm talking about the cathedral, I say "noh-treh dahme". When I talk about the university, I say "noh-ter dayme". I don't see a problem with that.

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 06:26 PM)

guessing "Hunchback" just got bumped WAY down the list for Disney's live-action remakes...

@  Patch : (15 April 2019 - 05:56 PM)

We all pronounce it wrong, so no one knows enough to care.

@  TM2-Megatron : (15 April 2019 - 05:40 PM)

It'd be odd for most Americans not to know how to pronounce Notre Dame, considering they have a University with the same name that's the subject of a relatively popular film based around a sport most Americans love

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Three or four more hours will be needed to contain the fire.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 04:22 PM)

Update from France 24: the Paris Fire Brigade says two towers and the main structure of the cathedral have been saved from complete destruction.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:57 PM)

One does not have to speak French to know that rhyming with "voter name" is off the mark.

@  Locoman : (15 April 2019 - 03:51 PM)

Really? It's an international tragedy and you're zeroing in on the people who maybe don't speak French?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:44 PM)

@Tm_Silverclaw I just read on BBC News that the cause is not yet clear, but officials suspect the fire could be linked to renovation work.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 April 2019 - 03:42 PM)

Oh boy, here we go with the U.S.-American newscasters who can't pronounce "Notre Dame" correctly.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 April 2019 - 03:38 PM)

Too soon to say.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 April 2019 - 03:20 PM)

Do we know if it was an attack? Arson? Or just bad wiring?

@  Nevermore : (15 April 2019 - 02:10 PM)

Religion is dead?

@  Paladin : (15 April 2019 - 02:01 PM)

major cathedral burning down on Holy Week is some kind of metaphor.

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:54 PM)

Hard to believe a wonder of the world could just be wiped out so easily. Hopefully they can still save it

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Well, Notre Dame is burning down

@  Benbot : (15 April 2019 - 10:05 AM)

yikes I thought the site was going to be down for a while

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:07 PM)

So, time for another strike. No sleep for me tonight. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (14 April 2019 - 09:04 PM)

Think Game of Thrones "light" meets Cabaret and you get the idea.

My comic shop has a mostly complete Erector ...but I just can't do it 

I've been there, you feel like you should feel excitement about an opportunity but you just can't get it up




Those videos are created to generate ad revenue.

I get that, and I realize that most of this is pretty standard fare, but the giant living ice cream throws me for a loop. Like, the fact that it is ice cream has no significance whatsoever. They could have just made it a dog and everything would have been normal.

The family just has a giant living ice cream living amongst them and it's just never remarked upon or made relevant in any way, and that baffles me to no end. Like, there's no point to it even being there. Nothing ever comes of it.

I was baffled to find that this series is apparently the origin of that "weird YouTube" video with the song between the child and father about whether he's eating things in the kitchen and whether he's lying. I guess the bizarre video that got circulated of that where the father eats the kid in the end was some kind of weird pomo parody.

the internet was fun. time to shut it down

Incredibly pissed off due to the fact that I found out that there's a French version of Saturday Night Live and it's literally called Le Saturday Night Live.

theres also a version of its always sunny in Philadelphia but its based in Moscow. 

Man, that would be an outright black comedy.

It should also be titled "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia", but Philadelphia is never mentioned in the script, and beneath the black comedy of the series is this unspoken, more innocent yearning for this invisible, kinder world. One of those tangible absence, sort of things.

As a liberal, I can definitely say I would not support George Washington as a Supreme Court judge in 2018. He's a slaveowner with no experience in the legal system, and he's extremely dead. 



the biggest discovery this weekend, ahead of "studio series devastator will be revealed at comic con london," is that there's a comic con london

The biggest reveal was that after I complained two years ago that Hasbro was now limiting their reveals entirely to Toy Fair, BotCon (which no longer exists), SDCC and NYCC, Hasbro's marketing department has apparently realized that they were spreading themselves a little too thin and has since decided that hey, apparently international markets matter a lot more these days, so now reveals also happen at Fan Expo Canada, friggin' Comic-Con Paris and Comic-Con London.

I wonder if some reveal also happened at Comic-Con Berlin last weekend and there was simply no-one in attendance who cared?

it was behind a bald guy...no one saw it.



it's my birthday, but i'm not turning thirteen. I'm staying twelve. This is because i've decided to not getting any older. Im stilll having a party though

I will,be eating cake that i stole from an abandoned cake shop. now that i dusted all the cobwebs off it tastes pretty okay. you're welcome to have a slice if you want.

There's also a party favor. Singular, because there's only one. It's a penny i found on the street that i think got ran over or something because it's covered in scratches; it looks kinda cool. The coinstar machine wouldn't take it so now i'm giving it to all of you. i hope youenjoy it, and please remember to share.

if you get bored there's a picture of a clown that i taped to the wall over there. you can look at it and imagine what it would be like if i had enough money to actually hire a clown for the party

Anyway, hope you have fun at thus party. I realize it's alittle dull, but my plan to rob the bank of switzerland didn't pan out, so i had to make do wirh a smaller budget.

How long have you been 12 Joey? How many years must we repeat this? When will you allow the rest of us to be free?!

And then there was Giganodragon from Dinozaurs, who unzips into a dragon scarf.

I thought that was a clever transformation.

It kinda is. It's in the Jizai Toys category for me of "I have no idea why you did that, but my God, well done, you did" that I really can't bash.



Oh no, I've lost the respect of tec. How ever shall I live with myself.



The moon landing was real, what they really covered up was the discovery of aliens on the moon.

i saw that horror movie. it was not good. 

I don't know that I'd call Dark of the Moon horror, per say, but otherwise I'm not disagreeing.

I dunno, I still have nightmares about it


That's all, I guess. Here's to more fun with y'all in 2019!

Usque in opaca fuerit truncus illius

Et ait autem amen dico vobis quod puer dicitur

Ego coniecto vos quia non scitis

Im 'etiam non a ludio ludius fiddle

Dare et accipere velis bet faciam vobis

Nunc a pulchellus bonum ludere fiddle, puer

Sed Diabolus det suum cuique tribuere

Et poenitet te agnus dei

Arma tua faretram et resinam proposuerunt in Johnny ludere fiddle difficile vobis

Causa est infernum fregit solveris

Et in Georgia diaboli auctori cards

Vincere, et si vos adepto hoc ad speciem est fiddle aurea

Qui autem perdiderit animam diabolo.

Diabolus aperuit causam

Et ille dixit: Et hic ostendit incipere

Unguiculi volavit ignis

Missilibus cum arcu et cum rosined

Et extraxerunt fortiter arcum, in chordis

Et fecit quod malum minentur sibila suspensum

Cohortem et a daemoniis copulata

Et sonaret aliquid simile hoc

...don't hurt me...

...no more.

From the non-toy pic thread:


I keep expecting the guy walking across the bottom to get all the way to the right and then set Tom Servo down next to him.

From the Bumblebee thread:

I remember by the 4th movie how staged the explosions were.

Maybe that's why Cena is in this one. He missed his intro the last 2 times.

The Jans and the Febs be like:


This cover hasn't aged well.

Honestly, I blame Wreck-Gar. He dared us to be stupid, and Bay simply accepted the challenge.


If I was in charge it would be "The Librarian and the Miner". Insert romance novel cover here.

...oh, miner.

He's out back.

oh my god are there "spinster" truthers

Why am I even in this fandom.

For the sweet spinster toys!

Like Elita One, since she's like 9 million years old and has never married!

This board REALLY hates too many quotes in one post.

EDIIIIIIT: oh, I try to post it and it says no, but when I split the post in half and do them separately it combines them? UJYGUSAYDBI IS HGISUFIS GF*OGI NUJNHFISJIU HIS


Can't wait till Shockwave tries to name all of the digits in pi.

That's easy. 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9.

One odd thing with the new Wreck-Gar, it looks like I will have to get a new Chainsaw Splatterpus from Trent (this time in orange) so Wreck-Gar can put it down and listen.

Wait, the robots in the movies have names?

(Still relevant in this post-Bee Movie era. Poor Shatkick and Dropper, or whatever the hell their names are.)

"Hi, I'm Ex-S Gundam."
"Yes, most of HC's posts are."

what is the history behind var mode anyways?


Wow, it's been almost 4 years already. How the vears vly vy.

I absolutely hate "third party Transformers". Awful, awful euphemism. You wouldn't describe horsemeat hamburgers as "third party beef", would you?

I'll tell you what I would do - start a frigging band called "Third Party Beef".

"Noiro" is a great name, in a cheesy Silver Age kind of way, for a guy whose defining characteristic is that he's a black version of someone else.

Optimus, at least, is a perfect lay


the only thing that would have made this better is if optimus prime rips off HIS face and he's ALSO shockwave and he's like ha-HA and shockwave is like aw fudge

He's Shockwave, he's Shockwave, you're Shockwave, I'm Shockwave! Are there any other Shockwaves I should know about?!

"Remember me, Orion?!? When I killed Bumblebee, I talked just... LIKE... THIS!"

If I can find a purple-bodied Titanmaster and four blue limbs, I'll give him an inner robot, but I'm not painting one of those things.

Watch for scale.

I've been watching for years.  Haven't seen any sign of it yet.

Y'know the more I think of it what I really want is 150 some-odd issues of what if Skids stayed friends with Charlene while the whole rest of Marvel continuity happened in the background

The magnificence of Bee Movie has surely made this possible!
