Thor was a great guy. Same as most of the Asgard. Loki was a jerk, though.

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:21 PM)

I think thor was just too smart to NOT call us stupid next to him.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 07:18 PM)

Six of one, half a dozen of the other?

@  wonko the sane? : (26 May 2017 - 07:17 PM)

I always interpreted that scene to mean that asgardians weren't capable of breaking down problems in the same way as humans.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 06:58 AM)

I mean, SG1 was a good show on balance. One of my favourite things was Thor admitting he found humans good to keep around because they so often came up with stupid ideas that nevertheless worked out.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Those episodes were 1969 and 2010.

@  Whirl Maximus : (26 May 2017 - 05:59 AM)

Stargate sg1 was loosely based on the movie, it thrived on continuity it was impressive how old situations and solutions would come back in unexpected ways. Continuum had it's villain use the characters own solution in two previous episodes against them.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:39 AM)

And yeah, name is based on a part of my surname. Can't remember why I picked it. Lost to memories of the primordial early 2000s.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:37 AM)

Like how Abydos in the movie is in another galaxy on the far side of the universe, but Abydos in SG1 is the closest world to Earth (and that was the only reason the gate could still get there) and even getting to other galaxies was impossible with the normal gates.

@  Pennpenn : (26 May 2017 - 05:35 AM)

I was very tired when I said that, but what I meant was a lot of stuff that is in the original Stargate movie is contradicted a lot in Stargate SG1.

@  unluckiness : (26 May 2017 - 05:29 AM)

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 May 2017 - 12:48 AM)

I remember a fanfic that had Swindle as Lawyer.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 10:08 PM)

No, I am referring to before Beast Wars: Uprising. I swear Swindle was a lawyer in a story before "A Brush With Infamy".

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:47 PM)

i cant get the link to work for the life of me. just go to the wiki and type "a brush with infamy" in the search box and itll come up

@  Telly : (25 May 2017 - 09:40 PM)

grr. check the post above this one. stupid non working link and i cant delete shouts...

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

I swear I've read the story but now I forget which one it is.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (25 May 2017 - 09:25 PM)

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

@  Rycochet : (25 May 2017 - 07:20 PM)

All I know about PennPenn is he's so good they named him twice.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (25 May 2017 - 07:02 PM)

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

I wonder if Pennpenn is related to Sean Penn.

@  Kalidor : (25 May 2017 - 04:31 PM)

Question with shadow foxes, will the japanese Shiny set we got from Megs count for the purposes of these events? It just occurred to me I haven't bothered to go to gamestop to get any of these, and they're going fast!

European Celebi won't be Wi-Fi. In fact it's already running in certain countries (Spain, France) and announced in others (Norway, etc.) as a retail event. They're not going to put the rarest Pokemon of any generation up on Wi-Fi for people to download 20 copies of each.

The Japanese Beasts and Celebi will unlock the same content in the English B&W, yeah.

Finally ran into my first wild shiny since their introduction into the franchise, and killed it on accident with an unplanned critical hit while whittling its health down to catch it icon-wheelie.gif

Always sucks to kill a random shiny. That's why one of the Pokemon I almost always have in my party while wandering the overworld after beating the Elite 4 is a level 100 Smeargle that knows False Swipe (to bring an opponent down to 1 HP without ever running the risk of killing it), Spore (to induce sleep), Spider Web (to prevent running), and Odor Sleuth (so False Swipe can work on ghosts, when necessary). I made sure to get one with the Technician ability (which powers up weaker moves, like False Swipe), and it's always holding a Silk Scarf (which boosts Normal-type moves further), so False Swipe takes as few hits as possible to bring it down to 1 HP.

Fortunately, nothing's ever had time to use a move like that yet, lol. Smeargle is pretty effective.

So, I got a question concerning B/W.

I'm getting a DS Lite and Black for my birthday (curse you, Nintendo! I can't quit you!), and I'd like the know if the DS Lite is capable of picking up the Wi-Fi needed for events like the Shiny Legendaries and the Victini event. Also, will I be able to participate in the Global Link, wireless battles, and similar stuff with the DS Lite?

Hell, there's even a way to spoof the in game wireless connection to make it pick up event pokemon by pointing it at the IP addresses directly. Those wifi booths at events are just hot spots which link to a web address which is broadcasting continually. It was... somewhere, in the old thread. Damned if I remember what page though. Which I knew, kinda tempted to go back and start a new game.

Asking about something even Bulbapedia doesn't explain and assuming there's no rules for it is cheating...?
