@  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?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

@  2017 : (22 July 2017 - 07:19 PM)

I'd like it, but I really don't have the cash or the justification.

A nerd.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:19 PM)

Speaking of, what do you call someone who collects toys of the Marvel character The Collector?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 04:18 PM)

What about people who collect the "Die Hard" movies?

@  wonko the sane? : (21 July 2017 - 03:54 PM)

A lot of the die hard collectors don't need to be louder...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (21 July 2017 - 03:22 PM)

@Nevermore Benbot means "amped" as in excited. I believe the term is shorthand for (a sound) amplifier.

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Or is "shorthand" a synonym for "amputated"?

@  Nevermore : (21 July 2017 - 03:10 PM)

Is "amped" shorthand for "amputated"?

@  Benbot : (21 July 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I am amped! But I also have standards.

@  Fear or Courage : (21 July 2017 - 08:38 AM)

I consider Thew to basically be the model toy collector. We should all aim to be so amped about the thing we collect.

@  Pennpenn : (21 July 2017 - 07:21 AM)

And some people are just whiny jerks who like to complain about stuff and don't realise that, so will invent irrational grievances to fuel that need.

@  Rycochet : (21 July 2017 - 06:13 AM)

A lot of toy collectors don't seem to get that the things the collect are toys.and have unrealistic expectations of what's doable in a modern retail environment. You're not going to get a $100 figure's worth of parts and paint for $20 or less and gimmicks are needed tomake the toys actually, you know, fun.

@  Foffy : (20 July 2017 - 09:40 PM)

Not necessarily. With the right condiments, they can taste surprisingly nice.

@  Evac : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

I think most toy collectors are bitter in some form.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:37 PM)

...or maybe I'm the bitter one?!  Oh no.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:32 PM)

And I don't even mean that everyone should love it all. But it does seem to bring the angrier ones in from the lurking.

@  Diecast : (20 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

It's these reveals that always remind me how exceptionally bitter a large portion of toy collectors are on other forums.

@  Sean Whitmore : (20 July 2017 - 07:06 PM)

SDCC toy reveals make adults happy by telling them what they can get eventually. Kids don't care what they can get eventually, you make them happy by getting them whatever's available now.

@  Jalaguy : (20 July 2017 - 06:10 PM)

They exist, they just don't show them at SDCC because they assume that the adult fanbase doesn't care about them.

Teen shot after egging prank

Seems a guy in Atlanta shot a 17-year-old to death for egging his Mercedes.

On one hand, the retaliation was clearly out of line.

On the other hand, I'm sorely tempted to print out a copy of the article and tape it to my car; it's been egged twice in the last 10 months, and so I do believe a little wall-to-wall counseling might be in order for the perpetrators.
Lexicon: still up and running!

If he didn't watch out, he'd become one of us - a 'Mormon' or a 'straight,' which is what Clinton staffers called FBI agents, the Secret Service, and former Bush employees."

Well, the kid shouldn't have been egging.

I was kind hoping he didn't die after being gunned, so he could have actually learned something. I hope his family gets through this.

I guarantee that if you tape a copy of that article to your car, within 1 week you will have no intact windows left on said vehicle.
A threat means nothing if you're not prepared to carry it out. They know you're not going to shoot them, FI.

Was the toilet paper on sale, too?


No, of course the kid shouldn't have been vandalizing, but that guy was a whackjob. If it wasn't because of some kid and a carton of eggs, it would have been someone bumping his car in a Wal-Mart parking lot with a shopping cart. Or someone cutting him off in traffic. Or his wife serving him an undercooked steak. Or his kid mouthing off.

If someone is crazy enough to shoot someone because of some eggs, they were a ticking time bomb to begin with.

People are batjive for their cars in Atlanta, but I suppose the fact that it was a /gold/ /entry-level/ luxury car should have been a huge tip-off about the owner's sanity in the first place. Pity, the egging was an improvement over THAT hideous color.

Edit: More details -- the driver actually RETURNED to the egging location. Premeditated, but also dumb because he cruised by AGAIN while police were on the scene. http://www.wsbtv.com...574/detail.html

Absolutely! I think it goes without saying. Also as a side note: the location, Joseph E. Boone Boulevard and Joseph E. Lowery Boulevard is in one (of 4!) of Atlanta's neighborhoods that made it into a 25 most dangerous neighborhoods to live in list.

This is why people like me are often such hard sells on whether we really need the second amendment in this day and age. This guy is probably not going to go to jail for all that long - although I'd be happy to be proven wrong. Too many people equate "right to bear arms" with "right to use them whenever for whatever reason" to shoot people for stupid-ass reasons.

Yeah, vandalism is terrible. But it's not worth killing someone over. Why the hell is that such a hard concept to some?
