Depends on how you're eating it.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 01:40 AM)

Havarti, without a doubt.

@  Greebtron : (12 December 2019 - 01:28 AM)

Not Don, thanks. I'd like a writer who actually cares enough to do the job properly

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 09:34 PM)

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:10 PM)

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 December 2019 - 12:20 PM)

Making Soylant is harder then it looks, it's not like the movies, you have to keep whacking and hacking at the ingredient, it'll scream and fight, maybe bite but eventually it will go down.

@  Paladin : (03 December 2019 - 11:48 AM)

varies from person to person.

@  Benbot : (03 December 2019 - 11:34 AM)

It's an acquired taste

@  CORVUS : (03 December 2019 - 11:17 AM)

Soylent? Its pretty awful.

@  unluckiness : (03 December 2019 - 02:49 AM)

Depends on your denomination of Christianity

@  Patch : (02 December 2019 - 05:52 PM)

@Benbot Do they have a soy-free version? Like maybe just "Lent?"

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 December 2019 - 02:03 PM)

Just occurred to me 'Autobot' Megatron happened in Target 2006.

In the world of Transformers, the cassettes are being pulled to one group or the other. Eject just had enough of the pulling and struggling of being treated like second class Transformers. He decide to hold a private meeting with Rumble. 


Eject said, "Rumble, we need a place where we can live in peace and with no fighting, no matter what our plates say of if we Autobot or Decepticon." Rumble looks at Eject and said, "most of the time, I disagree with you, but this time, I am in total agreement. Lets look for a new home." The Autobot cassettes and Decepticon cassettes all sneak out late at night, to board a jet for a new planet where they can live in peace.


Rewind, Eject's cassette copy and Frenzy, who is Rumble's copy both see a abandon planet. Rewind said, "lets send some of our buddies to check it out." Frenzy said, "I agree. I will get send Laserbeak, Buzzsaw and Ratbat to go to the island." Rewind said, "hold it a minute. Lets also send Sundor, Graphy and Raindance." Frenzy said, "OK, now they have their assignments."


The jet door open the the five flyers fly to the planet to look around. Raindance is using some film to take back to the jet. Eject said, "Rumble, I know we are all cassettes, but lets saporate the land in two sections, to remain in peace." Rumble said, "true. I like your thinking. We will take the land on the left of the river and you Autobots can take the land to the east of the river." The jet land and the Autobots and Decepticons both leave to build their own cities.


At night, a cassette enters the Autobot city. Nightstalker and Blackcat both stop the cassette. He then look up and it turns out to be Glit. Glit said, "let me come to the Autobots. I do not want to be on that side of the history again." Nightstalker said, "what you mean?" Glit said, "I am a doctor and I need to have my own laboratory and they will not let me have one on that side." Blackcat said, "Lets take you to Eject and we will invite you to our ranks.


Nightstalker and Blackcat both brought Glit over to Eject. Rewind, Ramhorn, Steeljaw and Stripes are all in the building too. Glit walk up and said, "let me be an Autobot." Eject looks at Glit and know that he is not a fighter, but a doctor. He said, "Glit, welcome to our city." Glit said, "thank you sir. I will not let you all down." Ramhorn said, "I will take you to your laboratory." Glit walks with Ramhorn to the room and said, "thank you for this sir." Ramhorn, who is mostly a thrasher, decide to help Glit get use to the city.


On the other side, Ravage is on guard with Howlback, Garboil and Wingthing. They are searching for Glit, who escape from them. Ravage knows that Glit is not a fighter, but he want him for payback for helping the Autobots as well as Decepticons. Garboil and Wingthing both land down and Garboil said, "Ravage, lets just say that Glit have escape and went to the other side." Ravage said, "okay. We can said, that. Lets go back to our base." Then the four hear something in the bushes. Soundwave walk out and see some of his cassettes. He said, "Soundwave need you all. We need to fight against the Autobots." Ravage smiles and said, "I think us Decepticons are all want to go back." The four then load up into Soundwave.


Legout, Decibel and Slamdance all see Soundwave and the three combiner cassettes went to Eject. Legout said, "Soundwave came back and he looks like he is getting his cassettes back." Eject looks down and said, "lets call Blaster. He need to get us. With Soundwave, he will have his cassettes to blow up the city and we will be at war again." Blaster walk up and said, "I overheard my main bots. Lets go." The combiner cassettes saporated. Blaster open his chestplate and the cassettes enter Blaster one by one. The last one to walk to Blaster is Glit. He said, "Blaster. I am an Autobot now. I need to tell you something."


Glit then transform into his cassette and enter Blaster. He said, "The Decepticons have place explosives under the Autobot city here and it will explode in 30 minutes. I contact you to come here after Rumble contact Soundwave." Eject said, "so you brought Blaster. Thank you." Blaster said, "lets hold off and get out of the city. You have a jet?" Grandslam said, "yes Blaster, when Raindance and I become Slamdance, we built one, just in case of Decepticon trickery." Blaster enter the jet and blast off. Moments after the blast off, the city start to explode. Zaur said, "all of our work." Dile said, "Noise, we will build again, without Decepticon interference." Blaster said, "after we are done, I have found a planet where all the Autobot Cassettes can live in peace. I will protect you all as your guardian again, on the planet, to scramble the transmissions, so Soundwave will not ever found us after this battle." The cassettes are all loving Blaster's idea and glad he will help.
