Surprised we didn't get a full size retool from the monsterbot mold. I'd rather have a CW Ironhide retool though, we need a van Wilder.

@  tigerhawk : (07 May 2021 - 04:19 PM)

I just noticed Wilder was the only omission from Takara Legends.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 06:01 AM)

Even more weirdly, it was the early shift where some people had their regular day off for the week, while the late shift was supposed to have full attendance (not counting sick days, vacations and overtime reduction).

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:15 AM)

The weirdest part was that there was a steady influx of voters during the early shift, while hardly anyone showed up during the late shift.

@  Nevermore : (07 May 2021 - 01:14 AM)

Wow, that was a long day. But it's over, and I finally got some sleep. Not particularly happy with the outcome, but then again, my candidates both admit they didn't really campaign that much.

@  Echowarrior : (06 May 2021 - 08:56 PM)

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:14 PM)

The election committee whose chairman I am has been preparing this election since February. There's no real gain for me either way, so I don't care that much for the outcome, but it's going to be a stressful day for me either way.

@  Nevermore : (05 May 2021 - 03:13 PM)

Wish me luck. Tomorrow is this year's supervisory board election at my workplace, and I'm the guy in charge of organizing the election.

My TR Perceptor fell and the titan master peg in the leg snapped off. Fortunately I have the Legends one.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 May 2021 - 08:50 PM)

It's a fairly well known fact that "it's a wonderful life" only became popular after it dropped into the public domain. So, yeah, they probably did.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (02 May 2021 - 08:29 PM)

I read an interesting observation on Twitter. If it is the natural course of a human to grow into Grandpa Abe yelling at a cloud, but nostalgia also yields rose-tinted glasses for the likes of one's youth, then did Greatest Generation adults bemoan how Baby Boomer children loved box office flops such as The Wizard of Oz and It's a Wonderful Life?

You’re traveling down a rabbit hole I dare not follow

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:26 AM)

At the same time, with my almost non-existent knowledge of Japanese and how oddly some things translate, seeing "Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges" made me wonder if that would make it "JoJoJo"... which now has my brain terrified of a weird Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo/Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Crossover. @[email protected]

@  Otaku : (02 May 2021 - 09:24 AM)

It is always weird when things align.  This talk of Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges in the SquawkBox reminded me of King Gorgeous Gorge on the FoxBox.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 May 2021 - 08:52 PM)

Nice

@  Nevermore : (01 May 2021 - 09:03 AM)

I got one even better: After that character by the name of Gorgeous Giorgios dies in a gorge, they name that whole area after him: The Gorgeous Giorgios Gorges.

@  tigerhawk : (30 April 2021 - 01:56 AM)

Paint apps did slide notably during TR, wave one's Titan Masters had detail but wave 2 onwards was absent of them. Wave 5's Ramhorn, Dreadnaut, Scorchfire and Aimless had detail but Murk and Hazard didn't, can't speak for Flameout as I got Legends Twintwist and Slugslinger.

@  wonko the sane? : (29 April 2021 - 04:12 PM)

Other than a few overly tight joints, the paints apps are my single complaint about the generations line.

@  tigerhawk : (29 April 2021 - 02:25 PM)

I just saw Legends Leo Prime now I wish Titans Return Alpha Trion had a few more paint apps for ship mode.

I'd like to know what society he's talking about, and what qualifies as "nothing", TBH.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 05:09 PM)

I don't see the point in such a poorly defined "everyone is terrible" statement. He's not complaining about any specific people or specific problems.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 April 2021 - 05:06 PM)

I do not see anything about Bass's comment that felt a need for you to attack him.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (26 April 2021 - 04:35 PM)

Bass: does that "everyone" include yourself or are you just trying to act like you're better than everybody without actually proving anything?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 April 2021 - 04:10 PM)

Mostly it's "oh, don't say that right now" and "better learn when to duck".

@  Bass X0 : (26 April 2021 - 04:05 PM)

There's something to be said about society when everyones just an inch away from snapping over nothing.

There's nothing stopping you from having those. Just pay attention to portion sizes. Self control is the, hands down, hardest part of getting healthy.

Got up and ran 2 miles outside since it was warm enough. Haven’t ran outside in awhile and it showed. Feb 1st also starts a biggest loser contest. I’m around 235 right now. Hopefully with motivation to win that and doing the 100 mile challenge in Feb I’ll drop a lot of pounds with the shock my body is about to get.

I was running today, and I told myself something I usually tell myself when I’m running and somebody passes me: don’t worry about them. Run your race.

But then I also realized those that were passing me were what appeared to be young kids in their 20’s while I’ll be 40 in May. They better be passing me up!

Alpine by Giant. It has 4.5” wide tires. I remember hitting a patch of snow on my old bike, and it was like quick sand, but this thing is a tank.

Snow never really worried me, it was the ice. I hugged up my shoulder beautifully one year by hitting a patch of the black while riding. My bike rotated 90 degrees and dropped my entire weight on my right shoulder. It's still not right, I'm as strong as I used to be, but range of motion suffered and the damn thing wants to pop out of the joint if I move too quick.

Taji 100: 100 - 3.5 = 96.5 more miles to go this month!

 

Got a workout in yesterday.  You can see on my first run where I had to step off the treadmill for a minute.  Was going a little faster than I should have.  Not sure if I am just going to walk my 3.5 miles tonight or get on the elliptical.  Might not do weights everyday, but going to try and do core everyday after getting my miles in.  I saw myself in the mirror this morning when I was getting ready and saw some good changes.  Did a side by side photo from September when I was down in Florida on the beach vs now and WOW!  Maybe Ill post a after picture when this deployment is done or the Biggest Loser contest at the end of March.  

 

Speaking of the BL contest, I went to get my weight recorded yesterday and was trying to save a trip for the bathroom until after I was weighed.  Well the guy on night shift was doing inventory so I went to the bathroom, did my run, then got weighed in.  As most of us know, running can work as a laxative.  So I weighed myself after I went, I lost a whole pound!  lol.  Weight at weigh in (with shoes and clothes) 240.6

I did 50 sit ups that are not on the list, forgot to add them.  Probably going to walk my 3.5 tonight plus weights after the Super Bowl is done. 

 

Also, product plug.  Treign is a small business from my hometown.  The owner was a basketball coach at a local high school and had a job in sales before he went on start his dream of owning a fitness clothing company.  The design is taken from ancient gladiators and the style of wrap they would use on their hands.  The clothes are super comfortable.  www.gotreign.com
