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.

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.

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.

@  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?

Wal-Mart has the new Transformers right next to the Cars stuff, and I've noticed that the Cars line now features several characters based on two cars I have long admired: the AMC Pacer and AMC Gremlin. There's just something charming about these cars; something very distinct from what we see on the road today. When will Hasbro close this AMC gap? And when will they advance this arms race by introducing a character based on the mighty AMC Javelin?

The Gremlin's secret mech-tech could be "EXPLODING GAS TANK"!

The Pacer's? "GREAT VISIBILITY!" and "PASSENGER DOOR SLIGHTLY LARGER THAN DRIVER'S SIDE!"

The Javelin though would be a cool one. My step-dad had a Javelin when I was a kid and I definitely liked it.

I thought it was going to be about the live-action movies performing significantly differently at a particular chain of cinemas from how they perform elsewhere.

I'd be perfectly happy with an unlicensed close-enough version, so it wouldn't have to be a movie thing.

You know I'm completely floored that Bay missed the boat on custom car shops for Decepticons. So what if the main companies didn't like the idea of their car being a villain? Get custom shops to do what Hasbro does with toys. Modify the body and headlight designs enough to be not litigious, and add the "Decepticon" flair to it.

One thing I liked about Movie 'Scream is that he still altered part of the human design with his own thing which was a big "jive you I don't want to be identified as weak human equipment".

But, yes, on topic...


The more cars the merrier to me...

Don't worry, the custom car shops got plenty of work making the Autobots' alt-modes look like giant toys because Hasbro didn't think realistic toy cars would sell.
