And he's a big ball, but he's not the biggest ball of them all. (That'll be Pulse Unicron.)

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 July 2020 - 07:37 AM)

Trypticon so scared my Primus figure he turned into a ball.

@  ▲ndrusi : (09 July 2020 - 09:56 PM)

King Nine, however, will not return.

@  Bass X0 : (09 July 2020 - 05:05 PM)

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

@  TheMightyMol... : (09 July 2020 - 03:37 PM)

WHATAMIFIGHTINGFOOOOOOOOARRGH

@  -LittleAutob... : (09 July 2020 - 02:06 PM)

Okay?

@  Otaku : (09 July 2020 - 07:47 AM)

@TheMightyMollusk Ah, but the series itself has pronounced "Bass" both ways. ;)  Oh, 90s English Capcom video game voice acting...

@  Maximus Ambus : (09 July 2020 - 03:14 AM)

Looking at my Titan Returns collection I can see they realised they didn't have to paint the Titan Masters after wave one, lazy bums.

@  Maruten : (08 July 2020 - 09:13 PM)

No, I'm going with "fish".

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 July 2020 - 04:19 PM)

He stated that it's in reference to the Mega Man character, so it follows the series' tradition of music names.

@  Cybersnark : (08 July 2020 - 03:59 PM)

The real question is if it's "bass" as in music or "bass" as in the fish.

@  Otaku : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Well, at least now I know how to pronounce @Bass X0 's screen name. ^^'  Rather, I think I'd just forgotten.  In my defense, it really does look like an emoticon or maybe just "decoration", which is what a lot of folks add to their screen names online.  Usually because someone has the name they really want. XD

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 01:27 PM)

Extremely unimpressed with your idea that someone making a negative observation you don't like means they "got triggered."

@  NotVeryKnightly : (08 July 2020 - 11:16 AM)

You know somebody asked "And this would be in relation to... what exactly?"

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 11:15 AM)

Its because someone got triggered over my random musings instead of just ignoring them. If I read one of your comments that is of no relevance or interest to me, I don't feel the need to say so.

@  -LittleAutob... : (08 July 2020 - 10:56 AM)

All this over someone's username lol

@  ▲ndrusi : (08 July 2020 - 08:34 AM)

Bazro.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (08 July 2020 - 06:34 AM)

It could be Bass 10-0

@  Nevermore : (08 July 2020 - 06:11 AM)

How do you pronounce yourself? "Bass Ex-O" or "Bass Ex-Zero"?

@  Bass X0 : (08 July 2020 - 03:23 AM)

I did almost go with Vile Bass X0, because Vile is cool too.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 July 2020 - 08:34 PM)

Bossk Saw

@  ▲ndrusi : (07 July 2020 - 04:16 PM)

Bass XD

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 03:43 PM)

And its not Bass XO, its Bass X0, as in Bass, X and Zero from the Mega Man series.

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:33 PM)

@Trpodeca :( :(

@  -LittleAutob... : (07 July 2020 - 02:32 PM)

Thats what a gray rock is? Then I'm not one.

@  Trpodeca : (07 July 2020 - 02:12 PM)

Man I just learnt about what seemed like a really cool show, only to realize it was a dream and it dosen't really exist.

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 01:02 PM)

Just something I read that I wanted to share. I heard "gray rock" mentioned in a video, so I looked it up and that was the definition.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 July 2020 - 12:20 PM)

It's a fancy way of saying "Ignore annoying people".

@  NotVeryKnightly : (07 July 2020 - 12:15 PM)

Bass XO has a habit of pasting random drivel here as if doing so were profound.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 July 2020 - 11:30 AM)

And this would be in relation to... what exactly?

@  Bass X0 : (07 July 2020 - 11:25 AM)

"One strategy for dealing with a narcissist or sociopath is to act like a "gray rock," meaning that you become uninteresting and unresponsive. You don't feed their needs for drama or attention. You don't show emotion, say anything interesting, or disclose any personal information"

@  Nevermore : (06 July 2020 - 07:23 PM)

Oh wow. Studio Series Offroad Bumblebee is awesome. His articulation is amazing.

@  -LittleAutob... : (06 July 2020 - 11:18 AM)

Oof-

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 July 2020 - 01:10 AM)

I got Studio Series 39 Cogman yesterday and woke up to find he'd decapitated my titans returns figures.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 July 2020 - 10:19 PM)

If I had a sarcasm powered mouth.. ooohh waaaiiittt...

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 05:01 PM)

Heh

@  Bass X0 : (04 July 2020 - 02:56 PM)

"If I had sarcasm-powered legs, I'd do a happy dance...!"

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 July 2020 - 02:39 PM)

The real clones were the friends we made along the way.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 01:47 PM)

So the Emperor in episodes 1 through 6 was a clone?

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:47 AM)

(And the 0th anniversary of the last time I couldn't do math.)

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Today is the 24th anniversary of the day we fought off an alien invasion with the help of Will Smith.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 10:41 AM)

Oh the end of the Ottoman Empire of course.

@  -LittleAutob... : (04 July 2020 - 10:14 AM)

*ahem* 4th of July....

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 July 2020 - 08:14 AM)

Nothing of importance has happened before, and nothing of importance will happen again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 July 2020 - 08:12 AM)

Nothing of importance happened today.

@  Telly : (03 July 2020 - 09:54 PM)

i want a "i survived 'rona and all i got was this lousy t-shirt"

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 July 2020 - 03:42 PM)

Slogan for 2021: "I Lived, Bitch."

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

They should make the next book in the Survivors series 'I SURVIVED CORONA VIRUS 2020'

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

YEEEE I'M A SURVIVOR-

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:59 AM)

Probably gonna assemble Devastator after work.

Not sure how extensive this got covered nationally, but anybody here hear about that City that got hit by 3 Tornado's?

I live in that city.
https://www.youtube....h?v=2QKYEFSIpdg

 

Didn't honestly know what was going on... phone warning went off, but it does that all the damn time, went to TV to see what they where covering when BAM, lights went out.  It's like 'ehh, it'll be back on in a minute'.  Course with no background noise from TV or Youtube I really got to hear the wind howl, the rain beat down, and the trees bend.  My grandpa and I where looking in the backyard trying to make sense of what was going on... in time to watch a neighboring tree split and take out the landline.  Then it's like 'well... I guess it WON'T be back on in a minute'.  Stayed up to watch the light-show and torrential downpour... but honestly who could relax with all hell breaking loose.  Plus, had to find flashlights, a radio, and the cat.  We only had my walkman to work with... and the cat hid downstairs behind the couch.  Smart cat.

 

Didn't even know the full scope of what happened until morning, First my mom called us at 4... which is 3:00 her time... freaking out about a Tornado, then we listened to the Mayor on my walkman, then I navigated my way to work to charge up our cell-phones and got the local news.  So yeah, aside from scattered home damage and uprooted/dismembered Trees, the Heart Hospital got maimed (that's the first thing you see on the video), but what got the most attention was what happened to the Auto-store.  Completely destroyed.  Apparently one of them touched down, skidded across the roof of the building complex next door, inflicting significant damage to Joann fabric, a Pizza Ranch, the Pancake house, and completely destroying a Sports bar BEFORE it hit the Auto store.... and went back up.  Surprisingly it didn't do  anything to the Warhammer store (I guess it knew better than to mess with the Ultramarines).  The aftermath did a substantial amount of property damage as it side-swiped the surrounding neighborhoods.  Downed trees, blown-out or mangled business signes, One auto-loan place's sign was twisted around like a corkscrew.  Thankfully... there were no casualties.

Luckily the worst we got was a bent eavestrough and power/landline loss.  Power was back within 20 hours, City came and helped us clear out the backyard, and the Landline was re-connected this mourning.  I have heard of homes that got hit harder, being completely destroyed.

Over the years I come to believe there are other residents of Sioux Falls on the board, I hope their safe.

Was that the place where they screwed up and didn't turn on all the warning sirens? I definitely read about that.

 

Good to hear you made it through alright, and that there weren't any fatalities.

That's the place.  Though they DID turn on ONE siren..... on the other side of town.

Not good then, but then the cat obviously the smartest member of the house, it decided to buckle down somewhere safe and likely warm! The rest of the post or at least the first part of it, not sure why, what came to my mind was, it sounds like a Monday!

Yeah... he was likely the only one of us who knew what kind of slag was going down.  XD

If he had thumbs, he'd be running the place.

I'd highly recommend everyone get a crank/solar weather radio. For $20-$30 you can get a crank powered weather radio, most have a flashlight, and regular radio on board as well, many have a solar option and phone charger.
I finally got rid of that big white box.
