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?

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

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

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  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?

And much as it showed off her nice *ahem* figure, I really hope that stays buried in the Fred Wolf toon. But I do hope Mikey at least stays with the Chucks for a bit at least.

I really hope the Kusari-Gama are official or make it to the end stage. They aren't a major change, they are still Nunchuaku but a bit more threatening. And its honestly better then a Grappling Hook.

............Kusarigama are nothing like Nunchaku.

At all.

Nor is it usually as practical in really close quarters combat, like the turtles are oft to do.

I'm not sure I like it being CGI, but it still looks like it could be good. There's still no way it can beat the awesomeness of the 2003 cartoon.
It's time to bring the crunch!

Either way. The Kusarigama was used to entrap an opponent's weapon, get in close, and gut them. It's not a weapon you can effectively used against multiple opponents, or opponents armed with more than one weapon. The Nunchaku though were made to just beat the stuffing out of someone. And when used correctly, are fairly effective. If they want to change the weapon, the best thing to go with is a good pair of Tonfa. Now those things are brutal!

I could have sworn he at least sported it in the movies and the 2K3 series. I know some of the figures have featured it.

Anyway, I look forward to whatever they have planned, especially if they have free reign over all aspects of the property.

Didn't mikey use a Kusarigama in the final few seasons of the original cartoon?

Frankly, it makes SENSE. If they all use CQB weapons, then they lack a ranged response. One of them being dedicated to tying up the bad guys so the others can get in close to maximise their time is perfect strategic sense.

Of course, if the NickToons show draws as much inspiration from the Fred Wolf cartoon as they say, we might end up with robot Foot Soldiers, so that point may not matter so much.

One can only hope. The 2003 series got accuracy to the comics out of it's system, so bringing back robots that allow the turtles to not have to hold back, like in the movies and the 2003 series, would be nice.

I recall a lot of Foot ninja using that weapon in the Mirage-like TMNT cartoon... and somehow, Leonardo was always able to easily cut through the chain with his swords. Mikey's will be better made from adamantium. icon-hotrod.gif
