(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.

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.

@  Nevermore : (03 July 2020 - 06:58 AM)

Ooooh. Overload arrived. He's surprisingly fun.

what would Canada do with Yogi?

@  Cyoti : (01 July 2020 - 12:51 PM)

We can deport Yogi back to Canada now.

@  Sabrblade : (01 July 2020 - 12:50 PM)

Jellystone National Pawk. A westful wetweat.

@  Rycochet : (01 July 2020 - 12:47 PM)

Jellystone. We're going to be plunged into a decade of poor animation. Fortunately we've been led by bad cartoon characters for years so we won't notice much difference.

@  Maximus Ambus : (01 July 2020 - 06:19 AM)

what next? YELLOWSTONE?

@  Nevermore : (01 July 2020 - 05:46 AM)

Thanks, dead person.

@  Bass X0 : (01 July 2020 - 05:06 AM)

congratulations to all survivors of the first half of 2020.

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 10:21 PM)

21 for me, but after numerous repetitions I got it down to 17 and a half.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 06:16 PM)

I transform in six steps from human to human sitting on my ass at the computer and back again!

@  -LittleAutob... : (30 June 2020 - 05:55 PM)

x-x when in vehicle mode we can travel much F A R T H E R-

@  wonko the sane? : (30 June 2020 - 05:52 PM)

Because despite the fact that we can travel around the world in the time it takes to get a good nights sleep and a couple of meals: people rarely wander more than 25 miles away from home for the duration of their lives.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I don't know how many days that trip takes - especially while sightseeing - but explaining they're 3936 kilometers (2445 miles) apart gives an idea, paradoxically because it is too large to easily picture.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 05:44 PM)

Aye.  When I catch lay people discussing miles and not how long the trip takes, it is in an attempt to stress how far away something is... like NYC to LA.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

But I can imagine 45 *minutes* easily.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:20 PM)

I can imagine a mile, it's a distance I've run. I can't really imagine 45 miles.

@  ▲ndrusi : (30 June 2020 - 01:19 PM)

I think there's also an element of the thing where things that are much bigger than us all blur together.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:49 AM)

If you're not, then you're more concerned with how long it takes.  Actual distance doesn't tell you that very well.  Besides traffic and road conditions, you'll need to know what kind of driving (city/interstate/rural/etc.).

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:47 AM)

Distance matters if you're being paid by the mile.

@  TM2-Megatron : (30 June 2020 - 11:44 AM)

Canadians are the same way, for the most part. If you're driving somewhere far, especially, it helps you plan out the day more than a distance in KM would.

@  Otaku : (30 June 2020 - 11:42 AM)

We use the time it takes to get someplace because that is what is relevant to us.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 June 2020 - 10:55 AM)

Because even we can't figure out miles half the time.

@  Paladin : (30 June 2020 - 09:54 AM)

it's a big country with a lot of empty space. between our citizens' ears.

@  Bass X0 : (30 June 2020 - 09:52 AM)

Why do most Americans measure distance by hours of driving?

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 07:26 PM)

And as a result the world's lone blu-ray release of the film, an Australian disc that came out 7 years ago, now goes for hundreds of dollars on eBay. Thanks Disney.

@  TM2-Megatron : (29 June 2020 - 06:21 PM)

Well, they censored Daryl Hannah's butt in Splash :rolleyes

@  Paladin : (29 June 2020 - 05:43 PM)

maybe New Mutants is too bad even for D+.

@  Steevy Maximus : (29 June 2020 - 05:00 PM)

X-Men films are coming to Disney+ next month. But will they censor Hugh Jackman's butt?

@  -LittleAutob... : (29 June 2020 - 12:44 PM)

Pft.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 11:59 AM)

Behold! Night Strike Galvatron!

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 09:53 AM)

I will grant you a recolored body, and recolored troops to command.

@  Cybersnark : (29 June 2020 - 09:47 AM)

I don't want to be reissued. This body sucks, I wanna be updated.

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 09:43 AM)

I definitely don't intend to be reissued. Nobody would buy me.

@  Bass X0 : (29 June 2020 - 08:31 AM)

will anybody else attempt to be reissued?

@  wonko the sane? : (29 June 2020 - 07:51 AM)

*Gasp* Decepticons re-writing history to serve their own needs?!?!

@  Nevermore : (29 June 2020 - 05:48 AM)

The whole point of the DJD is that they're fanatical Megatron fanboys (especially Tarn) to the point of having their own headcanon taking priority of the actual canon, simply speaking.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 June 2020 - 04:01 AM)

They didn't know the war was over until later. And then they denied it anyway.

Three years, according to the wiki. It certainly doesn't feel like some amazing future Earth.

It's three years according to Rescue Bots season 4, which takes place contemporaneously to RID season 1.

 

In a nutshell, the Aligned cartoon timeline thus far can be broadly interpreted like so:

 

Prime season 1 & Rescue Bots season 1

Prime season 2 & Rescue Bots season 2
Prime season 3 & Rescue Bots season 3
Three years pass
RID season 1 & Rescue Bots season 4
RID season 2
RID season 3
Rescue Bots Academy season 1
Rescue Bots Academy season 2

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.

They must've massively overclocked everyone on Cybertron during those three years, though.  Because it goes from "blasted wasteland" to "thriving civilization where things have had time to get boring" in that time.  Not to mention time for a prison ship to fill up with prisoners, some of whom had long histories with each other.  Alternately, everyone had evacuated to a second planet and maintained their civilization while the Prime crew mostly ignored them, and then everyone moved back.  (While later seasons spliced Prime and RiD together more fully, the first season of RiD15 was a REALLY bad fit to Prime.  Like, Unicron Trilogy bad fit.)

Don't forget that Prime also showed all of those newborn sparks coming out of the Well at the end of "Predacons Rising", and episodes before that also showed that the Omega Lock could instantaneously repair or make all new buildings out of nothing. Both were likely instrumental in making the new civilization seen at the beginning of RID.

I wouldnt put emphasis on continuity in anything involved with the Aligned Universe. Each show is its own thing with elements taken from each other. RID tried really hard with having characters return from Prime, but it just seemed they were grasping to pull in more fans.

Prime was the only one that tried to be its own thing (naturally, since it was the first of these shows). Rescue Bots, RID, and RBA have all made interconnected references and had guest stars to cement the connections further: Optimus and Bumblebee coming over to Rescue Bots from Prime, talking Bumblebee and Sideswipe coming over to Rescue Bots season 4 from RID, RID having all the Prime guest stars you mentioned as well as Rescue Bots Blurr, RBA having all of the main Rescue Bots plus Optimus, Bumblebee, Ratchet, and even RID Grimlock, plus FOC characters like Snarl, Sludge, and Perceptor.

 

Even Prime eventually tried to refer back to the video games and novels by the end of its first season and all throughout seasons 2 and 3, even namedropping the Dinobots who were then contemporaneously starring in three of their own comic mini-series (Fall of Cybertron, Rage of the Dinobots, and Beast Hunters), with the second one even being written as a direct lead-in to Ultra Magnus's joining up with Team Prime on Earth in Prime season 3.

 

No one's saying that everything lined up perfectly. Of course things were a mess, continuity-wise, since each of the various licensees and outlets all mostly wanted to do their own things and not play ball together. But that doesn't mean that there were absolutely no attempts to try to make it all fit together, nor does it mean that such attempts were all fruitless and futile, either. The bigger picture is there, we just have to figure out how to piece it together (in a "Let the fans sort it out" kind of deal) even if the bigger picture isn't necessarily a pretty picture.

Sometime after Prime, regular CGI humanity falls to hubris and goes extinct. In the wasteland, cel-shaded monkeys rise up, soon they grasp the leftover technology, they become self-domesticated, they refine their arts and economy. In time they shave their faces. To satirize their gradient shaded precursors, the new dominant species claims the collective name "Human"
Woooo!
