Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

Sephiroth in Kingdom Hearts 1. I still to this day cannot beat him.


I remember that fight. I managed to take him down, but that was after several tries and several hours of grinding.

Good times.

I can't even imagine how bad he must be on the Hard mode.

Tidal Wave from the PS2 Transformers game was the first boss battle I fought that felt impossible without being cheap. As in "how the hell am I supposed to beat THAT thing?" I still think that's the most slept on level possibly in game history. I mean, you play through the dude's BODY as the level and afterwards the ENTIRE LEVEL transforms and you fight it. This was before God of War and Shadow of the Colossus. And it was hard as HELL.


Hells yeah. Basically having to snipe his head, whittling down his HP while running in between two mounds and hoping he doesn't crush you. What made it even more 'fun' was in when you rose the level of difficulty more of thoes annoying Air drones would show up to snipe you. you know, the ones who you needed the Flak Minicon to actually kill with one hit.


Airburst one of the best minicons IMO


Anubis Zone of Enders why...because no matter how you do it you can never truely defeait him

I change my opinion to:

EVERYTHING IN NINJA GAIDEN 2

especially the rocket guys. How stupid is that? I can block bullets, slay demons, jump from extreme heights and suffer no physical damage, but one idiot with a rocket launcher, there's no getting around that.

Honestly, after the first time, it's not really that hard. Levi's certainly a hair harder, and the Inspectors in OG 2 are a more consistent pain in the ass.

Have a unit with resupply, give someone EN drainer and someone else Armor breaker.
Drain the Rivale of EN making sure to always resupply the EN missile user, armor breaker when he has 0 EN and decimate him.

And yea, Ninja Gaiden 2 is terrible in the regard of BALANCED GAMEPLAY.

A few canidates:

Cress (Arena battle) in Tales of Destiny 2 (Enternia). Even after figuring out the best way to hurt him was he tough to take down. But man was it awsome!


Tales of Eternia's boss battles in general were glorious. And the optional boss battles? *dies of joy*. So f'n awesome.

The Tales team was so on the ball with that one. The revamped battle mechanics (skill chaining and no freeze-framing when spellcasting) added so much to the frenetic pace of the battles, and the bosses really took advantage of the system. The game balance was perfect. The difficult fights were legitimately difficult, and never cheap, and the fact that even normal random encounters could easily end with your face smashed into the ground meant you always had to keep on your toes, instead of random X button spamming like in so many other RPGs.

Seriously one of my favourite RPGs ever.

Not to say anything about the overall wealth of other things to do, like cooking, the bajillion mini-games, Title challenges, the ingenious magic-generation system, sidequests. It's all just...wow.

The 15-level optional dungeon after the end of .hack//Quarantine. Not because it's that hard or that tough, but because damn near EVERY ENEMY is a Data Bug. It's pure luck just getting to the bottom without getting your corruption high enough for an instant game over. And then the boss has to be Data Drained, too. Took me a few tries to get through that.

The fights in the Hidden Area in Armored Core 2: Another Age. I still can't beat the third one to this day.

Super Mario RPG had some good ones. There's Bowyer, who cuts you off from using a command (if he cuts off your items, you're boned). The Axem Rangers, who fight all five together, are really tough if you can't kill the one that blasts the entire party before the healer can put him back up. And the hidden boss Culex was pretty tough, with his elemental crystals.

But the toughest fight in the game?

The goddamn WEDDING CAKE. I kid you not.

Yaridovich? He's easy. The trick is to use the timed hit on....whichever magic it is that tells you an opponent's remaining HP. The timed hit tells you what the target is thinking; it reveals which one's the fake.

I don't remember that fight being that difficult...

I was using all the immortals and Jansen at that point and did it in one shot.

Also, when you get Sed, use Sed. Sed is the jive.
