*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 12:22 PM)

so the weekend of SDCC, the TSA banned COMIC BOOKS from check-in luggage. http://lechicgeek.bo...ium=LCG FB Page

LEAKER DROPS POWER OF THE PRIMES BOMBSHELL! Shrapnel: "No, Bombshell's the other guy"

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 11:34 AM)

...did RichardT and Nevermore just accidentally do a Cybertron Enquirer gag?

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:56 AM)

"How to lose your job spectacularly".

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Holy cow.

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

@  BlackMax : (23 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 08:41 PM)

GEN'RALS GATHERED IN THEIR MASSES *GUITAR CHORD* JUST LIKE WITCHES AT BLACK MASSES

Once again, there is pain, I bring flame, I bring cold. I'm the blood red sandman, coming home.

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:26 PM)

Yo, when Team Skull meets you, they don't even greet you!

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 July 2017 - 06:23 PM)

Yooooooo

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:15 PM)

Yo.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 July 2017 - 06:14 PM)

Once more, I have returned. w00t.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 02:01 PM)

Macross Delta sucks but I listen to the music anyway.

@  MEDdMI : (23 July 2017 - 09:46 AM)

And dealing with me.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 08:47 AM)

Don't forget the rock music and D&D.

@  unluckiness : (23 July 2017 - 07:52 AM)

He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 06:44 AM)

Look, I'm TRYING, okay?

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

It's getting close to the end of summer, and mechs everywhere are about to enter the initial period of continued download recall protocol-- known to most humans as Back to School. So, with that said, your mission for August is to bring us a tale about a Transformer's first day at an institute of higher learning. It could be Auto-boot camp, the Decepticon Imperial Academy, or, I dunno, Hogwarts! Crossovers (in good taste) are fine, as are fan-characters this go 'round, so let's have it!

The door closes on September 1... locking you into the school building for another 9 months!

Anything a newbie like me should know? I might actually finish an entry in time (barely) for once but I am not sure how I even submit the silly thing. XD

(And everyone might as well get a laugh if they already know or information if they are ignorant like me)

All you need to do is just post the story by making a new thread in the main section.
