I reject your canon and substitute my own

@  unluckiness : (25 June 2019 - 12:32 AM)

Answer: It doesn't matter because even if there was one, it was never relevant in S1 and it got blown up with his original body

@  PlutoniumBoss : (24 June 2019 - 10:55 PM)

Most people think Transformers canon is a series of discrete parallel lines, really it's more like a big ball of canony-wanony... stuff.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 June 2019 - 06:31 PM)

Hate to say this, but the simple answer is that you are thinking too hard and realistically, it does not matter.

@  TheMightyMol... : (24 June 2019 - 04:57 PM)

Don't tell me what to do.

@  Paladin : (24 June 2019 - 04:16 PM)

don't cross the streams.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 03:03 PM)

Or is this what AVP meant when he said that condradictory streams formed the JG1 timeline?

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:25 PM)

I don't like that idea.

@  tffan01 : (24 June 2019 - 02:24 PM)

In Ask Vector Prime, it was mentioned that in the Beast Wars 2 universe, Convoys all have Energon Matrices and that when Optimus Primal from the Japanese Beast Wars stream was transported to the Beast Wars 2 stream, his history was subtly altered that he too possessed an Energon Matrix. What does this mean? That Beast Wars 2 is actually not canon to the Japanese Beast Wars?

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 08:54 AM)

yeah, I've got a few others that I need to check out/get removed. The nose one is small but annoying since I hit it every time I blow my nose.

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Try to get a histopath examination if it isn't too expensive over there. It's probably just a mole but I'd think certainty would be better.

@  MEDdMI : (24 June 2019 - 07:59 AM)

@unluckiness I know, plan to get it removed but gotta get an appt first

@  Gizmoboy : (24 June 2019 - 07:50 AM)

oops... typed that in the wrong field. :)

@  Gizmoboy : (24 June 2019 - 07:50 AM)

@  unluckiness : (24 June 2019 - 03:18 AM)

That is not a good thing, especially in the long term

@  MEDdMI : (23 June 2019 - 10:17 PM)

So who wants to hear about this mole on my nose that I keep scratching open

@  NotVeryKnightly : (23 June 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Yeah, it's kind of defeating the purpose of making political discussions more restricted if you're just gonna go at it elsewhere on this site.

@  Telly : (23 June 2019 - 07:06 PM)

that would probly fit better in the p & r thread. its there for things just like this

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:29 PM)

The citizens resisted by buying up all the town's beer reserves so the Nazis would have to stay sober the entire time.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:28 PM)

Meanwhile, congratulations civil resistance, part 2: So a group of Nazis were holding one of their Good Old Times Reenactment festivals in a small East German town.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:26 PM)

It's basically like an anti-Trump candidate winning Texas.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:25 PM)

The mayoral elections of Istanbul are considered to be a key indicator for the political climate in the entire country.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:24 PM)

This time, it was a landslide victory for the opposition's candidate.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:23 PM)

After president Erdogan had a court revoke the results of the mayoral election of Istanbul after the opposition party's candidate had won by a small margin, the election was repeated today.

@  Nevermore : (23 June 2019 - 03:21 PM)

Congratulations, democracy part 1: Today is a historic day for Turkey.

Convert, does he timeout?

@  unluckiness : (23 June 2019 - 09:12 AM)

Did he form the feet and legs or the arms and body?

@  Patch : (22 June 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Nah, he was one of the Lions

@  MEDdMI : (22 June 2019 - 04:45 PM)

Is he a Shellformer

@  Nevermore : (22 June 2019 - 12:38 PM)

Supposedly it's about that football player Calvin Johnson.

@  Pennpenn : (22 June 2019 - 07:03 AM)

I'm vaguely confused why there is a Nicki Minaj song in my youtube reccomendations, but even more confused as to why that song (which appears to be from an official account) is called "MEGATRON".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 June 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Yes.

@  RichardT1977 : (20 June 2019 - 12:05 PM)

Is it weeby of me to refer to the two IDW TF continuities as Heisei and Reiwa? I mean, the switchover almost perfectly lines up with the change of eras...

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 June 2019 - 10:35 AM)

I hate when the spicy version of something isn't spicy!

@  Pennpenn : (20 June 2019 - 08:43 AM)

I hate it when the spicy version of something is in almost identical packaging to the non-spicy version. Especially when I don't notice until I've got home.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 June 2019 - 05:44 PM)

They make a lot of pills for that.

@  Nevermore : (19 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

I got the results of the test back. I definitely have no sense of humor.

@  Paladin : (18 June 2019 - 05:59 PM)

so anyway how is your sex life?

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 June 2019 - 10:50 AM)

These jokes are tearing me apart.

@  unluckiness : (18 June 2019 - 08:55 AM)

Only if the customer reviews give it all high marks.

@  Patch : (18 June 2019 - 04:42 AM)

Are they going to call it "I-Did-Nawtflix?"

It's time for the greatest debate of our generation:



Growing up, were you a Nickelodeon kid or a Cartoon Network kid?

When *I* was growing up there weren't really that many parallels. Cartoon Network was mostly Scooby Doo reruns 20 hours a day and Nickelodeon was live action stuff like "Double Dare" and "You can't do that on Television"

Yeah, when I was growing up there was Disney Channel and Nick. Disney Channel was cool but an Expensive extra channel for a long time after it started. We didn't have it till late in my childhood because it cost too much extra. My Aunt used to be a VP at ESPN when Disney had bought it and I remember her saying that the upper brass there were very unhappy about how much of a march Nickelodeon had stolen on them. Their opinion was that if Disney had been doing things right with the Disney Channel then Nickelodeon would have never taken off and gotten super popular.

Cartoon Network launched when I was 16 in High School and I don't remember how long after that it became part of our regular Cable package.

-ZacWilliam, Certainly in the last 10 years or so I've watched WAY more CN (and Disney) than Nick, and that's with 3 kids in the house.

Didn't we have this exact same thread a month ago?

 

I guess in terms of works that influenced me, Cartoon Network has way more. Scooby Doo, Ed, Edd & Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog (oh my gosh Courage), Cramp Kids, Kid's Next Door, etc. Nick has been more sporadic for me. I have more fond memories of danged Robot-Boy than most Nick shows, and I'm pretty sure nobody remembers that.

 

Even as a kid I felt Nick's tent-poles were immature outside of live-action things.

 

I did always like The Angry Beavers though.


All that really matters is we could be friends

Only had Nickelodeon and Disney Channel as a kid.  Like ZW1 said, Disney was a pay station but my parents did pay for it (surprisingly as they didn't have a lot of money for such things).

 

Cartoon Network wasn't available in my area until I was 20 I believe.  It was whatever day they stopped airing Gundam Wing.

We didn't get cable until I entered middle school.

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.

Cartoon Network & Fox Kids (then for a time Jetix) were the channels I watched, Nickelodeon had nothing but trash, nothing to make me want to watch it, sadly those days have long since passed, it was thanks to CN & FK that I got exosed to anime and rekindled my love for Transformers, sadly those days are long gone and the good shows replaced by rubbish, whenever I want to watch something in the evening with a meal, these days its just Boomerang on ocason and its Tom & Jerry that I tend to watch.

Does anyone remember when the Sci-Fi channel(when it still WAS the sci-fi channel) had a cartoon block in the mornings?  This was late 90s I believe but it had Transformers G1 and Ronin Warriors among other shows.  I think it also aired Robotech for a while?

The channel wasn't available for me during the time it aired things like that and Bionic Six. I basically got these channels once they became lame.

But a friend of mine visited relatives and was able to record some of what you described.

Robot Boy! Blarg. I hated that other kid. That repetitive show had a lot of eps, right? I thought they'd run out of animal types to use as henchmen.
