@  Shrug : (18 October 2017 - 10:47 AM)

I'm not saying they're the same. They're clearly not. But members of both parties do receive large sums of money from telecom companies. When it comes to net neutrality, the issue isn't solely bipartisan so much as it's Old Politicians that don't understand technology.  Republicans do seem intent on making it worse intentionally though.

@  Paladin : (18 October 2017 - 10:40 AM)

anyone who still says "they're both the same!" after the past 10 months is WILLFULLY ignorant.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 09:03 AM)

Yeah, I might've forgotten that the Beast is pretty much just a mindless killing machine. That's pretty much what I get for going off of the TFWiki summaries without having actually read any of it.

@  tffan01 : (15 October 2017 - 08:34 AM)

@Onyxstrike Well, to be fair, the quality of the story aside, Beast Within illustrates the fact that Dinobots are feral in nature, with what would happen if they actually lost control. That's a character flaw in a way, correct? 

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:21 AM)

Send me a PM if you need help getting to the true ending, also.

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:15 AM)

Thinking about quirky robots occupies 30% of my brain's daily processing power. I can't remember birthdays and I never know where my phone is, but it's totally worth it.

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 08:03 AM)

Yay, I look forward to your dealings with quirky robots!

@  Strafe : (15 October 2017 - 08:01 AM)

Definitely, I started setting aside funds a month ago for the inevitable Black Friday digital sales in the Playstation and Xbox stores. Going to be ready this year, and that's one of the many games on my list!

@  2017 : (15 October 2017 - 07:30 AM)

Hey Strafe will you ever play Nier: Automata?

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

Plus, The Beast Within is overall not a very good story.

@  Onyxstrike : (15 October 2017 - 07:19 AM)

The problem is is that Victory's dreams are meant to prey on the Dinobot's character flaws. For instance, Grimlock downing every Decepticon in his path, but falling for Starscream's begging for mercy schtick, preys on his arrogence. What character flaws does The Beast Within prey on? Nothing. The entire premise of the book was to please the many fans who posed the many hypothetical "What if the Dinobots combined?" scenarios way back when, with a gratuitous death count to boot.

@  Bass X0 : (15 October 2017 - 05:51 AM)

What's wrong with wanting it to be a canon dream sequence?

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 October 2017 - 01:14 PM)

Pony dreams?
Man out of my 3 pony related dreams 2 were about talking about ponies in /co/...
At least the other was more interesting.
Basically the US government ordered Fluttershy's death and sent everything to get her. The next moment I'm in the middle of New York with Fluttershy hiding under a newspaper and Twilight screaming that we need to find a way to get them back to Equestria. Then 20 soldiers come out of nowhere and surround us. Twilight and Fluttershy go all Prototype and start running on building while the soldires look a bit confused and then fill me with bullets.


And there was that time with the fever induced hallucination with Deadpool and Rarity...That was just...really, really strange.

The brony meet-up was a lot of fun. The group was quite visible, what with the pony t-shirts and the large brony-banner that was held up. I couldn?t resist the urge to have a little fun:

Me: "My little pony? Aren?t you guys a bit too old to be into that?"
Brony: "No, you see, there is this new show, called Friendship is Magic, and it?s actually really good and has amassed quite a fanbase in a relatively short amount of time."
Me: "Oh yeah? But why is Rarity the best pony?"
Brony:" Yeah, really, the show has taken in qui...." *realization, grins* "She isn?t, Applejack is. Welcome to the meeting"

I didn?t bother to count the total of bronies, as people were coming and going all the time (I guess to go play video games), but there were about a dozen bronies present at all times. One had brought a Twilight Sparkle Plushie he bought off someone on deviantart IIRC. I don?t recall the name of the gifted seamstress, but the quality was top notch. I was quite impressed with it.

Much time was spent on people recounting how they stumbled upon the ponies, generally discussing the show and just plain getting to know one another.

Of course I had to show off my sculpted FIM stuff as well. I was completely overwhelmed by just how well received my Applebloom was.
I had only one painted copy with me, and that one sold for 20€ (~ 29$) in an instant, and those who missed out on that particular Applebloom already put in orders for more- so I guess I?ll be painting Appleblooms for a while.

Apparently there's a Pinkie Pie christmas ornament, and it's currently available at Carlton Cards stores in Ontario (likely the rest of Canada, too). Seems to be at least a little bit more show accurate than anything Hasbro's come up with, to boot. In any case, it's not ugly like some of their toys are. I'll likely be dropping by the Eaton Centre or thereabouts to pick one up. Can't say I've ever really been in a Carlton Cards looking for Christmas Ornaments (Hallmark seems to be the more popular choice).

1. Do you suppose they might start selling those at stores a little further south? I live in Oregon, and I don't have a car, so long distance trips aren't exactly easy for me, though if I could, I would.
2. Is it common for stores in Canada to be selling Christmas ornaments IN SUMMER? I mean, I know stores get started on holiday merchandising early (at least, they do where I come from), but that's kinda ridiculous.

Also, Rarity is a valid choice, and I accept and tolerate that you have chosen her. However, it is a simple fact that Pinkie Pie is truly the best pony. icon-waspy.gif

It's an American Greetings ornament, so I imagine it'll be sold in the US eventually. I've never really seen stores selling Christmas ornaments up here in the Summer before, but as I said I've never really been in a Carlton Cards; or specifically on the lookout for Christmas ornaments at this time of year. I don't buy many Christmas ornaments in general, aside from the occassional attractive one I might come across while browsing around or doing Christmas shopping in December. The only ones I tend to actively seek out are the Star Trek ships that Hallmark puts out; and I'll only buy that if they've chosen an attractive class of vessel to issue that year.

Sweet!

I ask because I actually have a fake bonsai Christmas tree (which I made--and flocked--myself) sitting on top of my bookcase year-round. It's kinda bare, having only a very few ornaments, so I would love to fill some space on it with some Pony! I'll have to keep an eye out for this . . .

Gamescom isn?t worth it, honestly. Even if I?d care for video games, it was so crowded, that even getting near the popular booths was impossible.
So while i would have liked to get a chance to chat with Notch at the Minecraft booth, I was not very keen on standing in line for hours on end.

Instead I went to the booth for Star Trek: Infinite Space. Never herd of the game, and I still don?t know what it?s about, but I got an inflatable Bat?Leth.
