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.

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.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  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.

He admits placing the puppy in harm’s way, and animal abusers are known to often harm other people. His admission to hurting the puppy makes me believe the ex-wife.

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.

Cummings is a huge part of my childhood and I believe one of the greatest voice actors.

However, he isn't literally his beloved characters and that's an important distinction.

I don't want the allegations to be true. But if they are, justice must be served.

Yes. I agree. Justice must be done if the truth is irrefutable.

Though i hope to god this isn't true, because, well, these things should never happen.

Personally I'm disappointed by the number of Cummings fans (including female) who are shouting it's all lies, his wife is crazy, 'SJW agenda', etc.

 

Rolf Harris was a beloved entertainer in the UK for decades. Beloved by kids and adults. And then a few years back it emerged he'd committed sexual assault and went to prison for it.

 

Anyone can be an offender. Even if they're a huge part of your childhood and you think the world of them.

I think in poor taste to say "I hope this isn't true because I don't want my perception of my childhood icon to be changed."  Or maybe poor taste isn't the right word, but . . . it's an attitude that encourages a bias.  Like, maybe his ex-wife who got restraining orders against him knows him better than a bunch of people who heard him in a cartoon, you know?

 

I get that emotional punch when you admired someone (especially when you admired them as a child) and then later found out they're awful.  I grew up watching The Cosby Show and thinking that Bill Cosby was the same person as his lovable character, Doctor Huxable.  But he wasn't.

These situations are always difficult to respond to.  Like, I have no particular feelings toward Jim Cummings as an actor other than him having the most obtrusively out-of-place voice in Skyrim.  He happened to voice a few cartoon characters I liked, but, like, that's not really anything to his credit, other than being hired to do so. And I don't personally know anything about his personal life to say that the allegations seem likely or not.

 

But, like, you don't want to be all like 'I hope he rots' because of the handful of cases where these kinds of allegations turn out to be false, but then, to otherwise dismiss or ignore such serious allegations out of a desire to appear fair or retain a sense of nostalgia is equally wrong.

 

So, like... I hope the truth is properly responded to?

No, but he’s alleged to have broken a puppy's hips itch a boom and placing it in a steel bucket or tub and leaving it outside on a hot day as “discipline”. The puppy is said to have nearly died from the experience, and he admits to having put the dog in the tub and “forgot it was there”. This is what concerns me the most.
