It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:08 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

Welcome to a montreal summer! It's between 40 and 45 celsius with 110% humidity. You're dying of thirst, but if so much as one more drop of water passes your lips, your bladder will explode and create yet another magnificient canadian lake.

 

I spent some time cleaning in an air conditioned house, and I'm hugging bent. It's too hot to live, never mind thinking about sweating on purpose.

Went to visit family in Maine through the 4th. Lots of lake swimming and playing, a little tubing, a sea kayak tour (that was an "upper" work out for sure!), 4 meals of Maine lobster fresh from the docks! Didn't lose any weight but didn't gain any either, so for a vacay can't complain! 

A 5 mile walk 2 days ago and just did an at home chest/arm workout, hopefully getting myself back into the routine.

Running every evening, even in rain. Some nights it's just two miles; last night, it was 4.3.

 

Weight down to 207, down a total of 12 pounds since I started charting it.

At home "upper" workout - arms, shoulders, and some chest. 

"Leveled up" and went to a higher weight on a couple exercises, did some others very solidly with the weight I'd been using (which means I'll be introducing heavier weights soon to that exercise) and did increased reps on exercises that I'm maxed out on weight (the heaviest I have at home is a set of 40lb dumbbells.)
All in all it was a good workout because A) I just didn't want to do it, my mind was throwing everything at me to give me an excuse NOT too, but ultimately really didn't have a compelling reason to not do it, and I didn't do anything the day before so that really puts the pressure on. I started slow and took some longer than really needed breaks in between sets at times, but ultimately got into it and did the whole routine I had planned, and felt great, esp with B) as I said I increased in some areas and just felt stronger in a lot of the exercises, which (once again, I've relearned this numerous times!) shows if you stay somewhat consistent you WILL see improvements!

I'm 10 days away from 100 push ups a day for 100 days and I think I'll have to radically modify it after because my body probably got used to it so much so that there isn't any progress.
