Think of it as Adam West Batman instead. ;)

@  wonko the sane? : (07 August 2020 - 07:49 AM)

That sounds more like the flash, or maybe booster gold than batman.

@  Sabrblade : (07 August 2020 - 12:27 AM)

They would get bored fighting each other and instead decide to take an epic cross-country road trip together.

@  RichardT1977 : (06 August 2020 - 08:57 PM)

What would happen if Batman were to fight Squirrel Girl?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 09:03 PM)

Unless you count the Mask vs Lobo special, but that's less a duel and more a duet.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (04 August 2020 - 08:52 PM)

My favorite crossover fight was Thor vs Shazam/Captain Marvel. Early in the fight, Thor discovers that Billy Batson needs lightning to transform, and being a god of lightning he simply denies him that.

@  Sabrblade : (04 August 2020 - 08:46 PM)

Let's see a fight between Death Battle and Super Power Beat Down

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

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?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

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.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -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

I watched this amazing video where millions of crabs are migrating across some road in Cuba and this car just plows right through. A quarter mile of crunch time. Then they close up on a survivor picking at and eating a smooshed crab who
looks exactly like the mustached old man from the Muppets.

That really brightened an otherwise crappy day.

Alright, so... and I know no one wants to hear this on the 24th of october, but my christmas shopping has officially begun! And I am actually about two months late this year. Anyway, I got my nephew a nice low end graphics card for his desktop which we got him for his birthday.

 

Gonna split the card with my brother: so I'm helping more than just myself with this.

I just got a consultation for the laser eye surgery clinic. Hopefully, I'll be able to schedule the surgery proper for late this year, early next and rid myself of these twice damned glasses.

I don't mind having glasses, but other eye issues mean that laser surgery might help in the long term. Would still rather try other options first.

I just spent a half an hour on the phone helping my 11 year old nephew start doing a power point project for school. I hate talking on the phone, but I love that kid, so it was worth it.

 

Thankfully, I got the SSD in my computer and built his with a gaming rated mechanical drive. So I was able to do things pretty much simultaneous to him, but still faster. Really smoothes out the process when only one of you needs to wait for the computer to respond.

So I've schedule my surgery... now I just need to work out how to pay for it.

 

 

No, I don't mean I'm broke: I mean literally how to get the coin to the doctor. My credit card's limit is less than the cost of the surgery, and debit cards have 1500 daily limit. I might need to go talk to my bank about it. Maybe see if they take cash, the payment forms are in the brief they gave me.

They could probably do a split payment, part on the credit, part on the debit, etc. Guessing check isn't an option.

They got a 12 month no interest thing rhrough my bank I'm going to call and ask about tomorrow: otherwise it's just a matter of being uncomfortable carting 4K through the subway. A cheque isn't an option as I don't actually have any, and couldn't get them in time for the surgery anyway.

Today's the day! I get my laser surgery. I want to say I'm excited, but it's been so long since I've actually been excited about something that I'm not sure what that feels like anymore.

 

Frankly: I'm having a hard time believing this will actually achieve anything. Everything I've tried to do for myself in the last few years that wasn't an outright failure has only been a mitigated success.

Had eye surgery once to fix issues w/ double vision/weak eye muscles. It was amazing being able to see properly, I had gotten so used to double vision that I didn't even realize how bad it was. It's coming back, though...

Guessing you're in recovery right now. Let us know how it went!

Everything up close is a touch blurry and shiny, but otherwise, it's AWESOME.

So do you want Blurry by Puddle of Mudd or Blurry(Out of Place) by Crown the Empire?  Personally, I'd go for the latter but the former's good for some nostalgia kicks.

"everything blurry looks the same!"... No hugging shit there buddy. Any other pearls of wisdom for us? On a serious note: not a bad song and I think I'll look up the band when I have some free time. As for puddle of mud... that voice is familiar, and so is the song. Another one to look up.

 

Thank you kindly for sharing.
