King Nine, however, will not return.

Bass_X0 will return after these messages ^^^

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)

@  ▲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)

@  ▲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)

@  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"

Q&A History

Best Answer Sharkshadow, 25 April 2020 - 11:15 AM

Ok here’s Sharky’s quick and dirty histography of the invasions of the British Isles. First up is Julius Cesar in 55 BCE.   Well his first invasion was in 55, after being initially repulsed by the natives he tried again in 54 BCE with five legions instead of the two he had brought initially. Things seemed to be going well for him but rebellion by some of the gallic tribes he had  conquered under Vercingetorix forced him to make a peaceable arrangement with the locals where they would provide Rome tribute in exchange for them forgetting Britain existed.   

11 years later the legions of Emperor Claudius conquered the area around  what eventually would become London and gradually spread out across the island eventually stopping at a place called the Stanegate.  This conquest of the island took till 87 BCE and stopped in the area where Scotland and Britain butt up against one another. I won’t go into Hadrian’s wall here much, but I will say its not accurate to say it was built to keep the Picts out.  Historians and Archeologists don’t know the exact reasons why the wall was built, with the keep out the Picts theory being just one of several.
 

Next up is the Carausian Rebellion in 286 CE, where Romans invaded Roman territory, so I guess it counts?  A Roman naval officer named Carausius who had been charged with keeping the English Channel clear of pirates ,decided he liked the sound of Emperor before his name and with the support of the two British legions, the pirates he had been charged to defeat and three gaulic regions rebelled against Rome.  This of course sat poorly with the current Emperors of Rome ( don’t ask it’s a long story) so they spent 7 years building up a fleet and steam rolled over Carausius’s allies who had assassinated the man before and were making a general nuisance of themselves to the British populace.

Now we get closer to better documented times, the Saxon Migrations into Britain. By this time, the western roman empire was on the verge of collapse. The outer provinces of the empire were abandoned to their own fates during this time period with the legions guarding them being recalled for Italy’s protection.  Into this convenient power vacuum came the Saxons. There were several waves to the migrations of the Saxons over a period of centuries, so it is a bit of an exhaustive topic. The main point ot get is this is what slid Britain from a Romanesque culture into a Germanic one and began the English language’s descent into madness.

your wrong on the deaths for Canadian independence question. there were several  armed rebellions that failed against British rule. As punishment for the next week you must cite everything Destron says in Chicago style. 

Did any of those rebellions actually contribute to independence, though? I guess they would still be said to die for it, but it does seem like there's the possibility of quibbling on phrasing for more than one possible right answer. X ]

Got another one: Who was Georges Méliès and why was he important in film history?

He was a French filmmaker and stage magician who is generally considered the first person to recognize the potential of narrative films.  Over the course of 16 years, he produced over five hundred films covering a variety of genres, including eroticism, though he did not produce the first sex scene in film.

There are arguments about whether X historical ship really counts as a battlecruiser. I think these tend to be focused on the 1918 HMS Hood and the 1940s Alaska-class.

I guess the question can be rephrased as like "do you find these arguments amusing or annoying?". (with however many more options)

That'd rule out most of them, right? Because I was thinking that the Anglo-Saxon "invasion" slowly replaced everything but didn't have a central political power to it so it's iffy, the Roman conquest included building a big old wall and declaring everything on the other side Scotland and not worth messing with, and I don't remember the Norman Conquest involving Ireland...?

 

I know the groups inhabiting the islands weren't the first even before the AS showed up, but I thought your Picts and Jutes or whatnot were similarly just small unconnected groups and not actually a single invasion force.
