Oh, the turnover rates are high here as well.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Amazon.com and .ca, on the other hand, can be pretty terrible. I know from your squawkbox posts that you guys have your issues with Amazon over there, although you're lucky to have stronger government regulations and a union there. I gather the warehouse workers in the USA and Canada have it pretty crappy, with very high turnover, close to minimum wage pay, and no unions

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 09:38 PM)

Amazon.de doesn't really have the same issue. I've ordered from them (and UK, FR, IT and JP) several times, and their packaging is much better

@  Nevermore : (17 October 2019 - 05:22 PM)

I'm not sure how it works on the customer's end. As packers, we sometimes have items that are flagged as "overwrap", which means we absolutely have to put them into a box even if they're already in pretty sturdy manufacturer packaging.

@  TM2-Megatron : (17 October 2019 - 03:05 PM)

Yeah, I really do wish amazon had an option to upgrade packaging for an extra buck or something. I hate their bubble mailers

@  Benbot : (17 October 2019 - 07:17 AM)

That's how it works. I just hope my order from Amazon doesn't arrive crushed because they idiotically stuffed it in an envelope.

I stirred up some trouble at work, complained about the blatant neglect of employee safety. Was asked to take photos and write down the locations so the matter could be properly escalated. Made me feel a little better.

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

This week's episode was great. Killinger is the jive. What's awkward is that he's so awesome that he pisses me off because he makes the other awesome characters like Brock and Orpheus look less awesome by comparison.

Naw, you gotta think of 'em as "Awesome in their own way".

Killinger's motivations, while apparently philanthropic in nature, always carry a tinge of the sinister.

it's like that line in "The Simpsons":

"But the little guy hasn't done anything yet, and when he does, you know it's gonna be good!"

Killinger is best in small doses, but once he unleashes that can of whoop-ass (or in Killinger's case, magic murder bag), it's gonna be hard to close it again.

Kinda like when Yoda went all *scrubbed* strong in the prequels. Kinda killed all the mystery.

it seems like they're intent on slamming as many cameos as they can per episode.

It's like trying to cram an entire season of Gargoyles into 15 minutes.


And i'm loving every second of it...

I just hope it's not an entire season of backstory, as it has been thus far.

we've got just about everybody who matters, except for Dr. Orpheus, and the Triad.

I want something interesting to happen, the last two seasons had a bit of an overarching theme.

How was "The Doctor is Sin" Backstory? The cloest thing would be Killenger hav ing Doc face his inner turmoil with ONE vision of his past. The whole episode felt more like character Devolpment with the Doc realizing he's not as great as he thought he was.

And the way it ended seemed to indicate that he was going to do really and honestly do something about it this time as he was opening mail from 5 years ago.

I'm going to assume all the backstory is necessary this season.

It's like the chess pieces are being put in place for a major match.
Signatures are overrated.
