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.

When has G1 Swindle been a lawyer before?

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

Nope.. Pennpenn is actually a Prinny dood!

@  Foffy : (25 May 2017 - 06:47 PM)

Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

Walky's ass would mean Columbus.

Which would be awesome!

But seriously...let's get a NON-EXTREME location this year. No California, No Texas, No Rhode Island, No North Carolina.

Chicago, Indiana, Kentucky, Cincinnati, any of those would be good.

Most people want it in their own backyard, so since you can't please everyone, let's just ignore that and have it somewhere where you can expect to see something outside the convention other than a Denny's and a Wal-Mart. It's not like they have trouble with attendance when they don't please the "budget" attendees.

Don't get me wrong, I've been to quite a few conventions now and have had lots of fun in the "non-extreme" locations as Blud put it, but I think half the fun is going somewhere interesting. If having to fly is fairly likely either way, might as well go someplace noteworthy.

Wherever it is, hopefully it will be near a city with major hub airport. It would make flights cheaper for those in the US and those from outside the US wouldn't have to spend additional airport/travel time just to take a connecting flight (which really hugging sucks after a 12-14 hour flight across the Pacific).

Obviously, this is one of those places where "our definitions differ."

I read that as everyone has to travel across the country to get to it.

Yeah, I know you mean "across" as in "coast-to-coast." I read "across" as in "a great distance."

I keep saying it, but I really think Indianapolis would be a good location, and not just because it's a 20-minute drive for me. It's at the intersection of four major interstates (65, 69, 70, and 74) and a major highway (US 40), has a large international airport, decent public transportation, and is already a major convention city. They host GenCon every year (and the Super Bowl next year), so BotCon should be no problem. Plenty of hotel space both downtown and in the 'burbs, and plenty of stuff to do all around the city.

A lot of so-called "international" airports aren't really all that international. Indianapolis's airport only appears to have direct flights to/from Toronto and seasonal flights to Cancun. I think the only international hubs in the midwest are Chicago and Detroit.

Let's shore up our definitions here.

Traveling from the midwest to the west coast is traveling across the country.
Traveling from the west coast to the midwest is NOT traveling across the country.
