Cheddar can do just about anything.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

@  Rycochet : (04 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

The Tim Burton Superman Movie is the DC movie we deserve. It would have Nic Cage in a technosuit punching polarbears.

@  Paladin : (04 December 2019 - 02:59 PM)

Wonder Woman was great. Shazam was amazing. Aquaman... exists.

@  RichardT1977 : (04 December 2019 - 01:54 PM)

TBF, Aquaman and Shazam! were pretty good.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 01:00 PM)

Not a difficult feat.

@  Benbot : (04 December 2019 - 11:50 AM)

You just put more effort into telling a compelling story than all of WB's execs.

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:41 AM)

Cue the flashback to Jonathan, reassuring a terrified child: "What you are is never as important as who you are." Cue Superman's response to Brainiac: "I already know who I am."*John Williams fanfare plays*

@  Cybersnark : (04 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

I don't think we even really need to see Krypton. I'd start with Clark growing up in Kansas, thinking he's normal, and follow him through the development of his powers. There've been enough alternate takes on Krypton that it could actually work as a mystery; is this the pre-Crisis utopia, the sterile science world, or the relic of a fallen empire? Brainiac was there, and he tempts Clark with the knowledge of what he really is.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:12 AM)

First, a Krypton film, ending with baby Kal-El being found on Earth.  Then Supe's early career film, establishing his values... and if Jonothan Kent needs to die, it happens because of something like a heart attack while Clark is savnig folks on the other side of the world.  After we know Clark minimizes property damage and never kills, have Zod & Company show up and force him to make tough choices.

@  Otaku : (04 December 2019 - 11:07 AM)

Man of Steel seems like someone came up with a Superman trilogy and then the execs said "We've got to catch up to Marvel, make it one film!".  I don't mean that based on the film's actual pacing, but because various story beats make more sense to me if they weren't all squished together.

@  Cybersnark : (03 December 2019 - 07:44 PM)

I've been wanting to write a Superman movie trilogy for years; "Man of Steel" (featuring a Terminator-like Brainiac) was going to be first, with "Last Son of Krypton" (featuring the Eradicator) as the sequel and "Man of Tomorrow" (in which Luthor makes his face-heel turn) as the conclusion. Thanks to Snyder I have to re-arrange my titles.

@  Nevermore : (03 December 2019 - 06:15 PM)

I still wish "Man of Steel" had instead been an adaptation of both the John Byrne miniseries of the same name and the Jeph Loeb/Tim Sale miniseries "Superman For All Seasons".

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (03 December 2019 - 04:42 PM)

A take I just read: Man of Steel is shot with such a lack of lighting that it is easier to discern what is going on in a porn film.

I might need to look into Savers then. I loved Tamers, but I can't get into any of the other stuff. Even the first season was dry and a bit more kiddy than I'd prefer. (Y'know, digivolving in the first season was forming Voltron from the get-go. The first time a main character digivolves in Tamers, it's a bad thing.)

Savers has that problem too at first.
Most of the fights in the first "arc" basically follow the formula of: Masaru finds a way to punch the MOTW-> Agumon evolves into GeoGreymon-> GeoGreymon OHKOs the enemy.

I haven't watched it since it aired, but I think that part gets better after they go to the digital world.

I didn't mind the Monster of the Week format. It let us get to know the characters before thrusting them into world saving shenanigans.

Plus some of those episodes explore how sometimes a digimon and a human meeting one another isn't always a GOOD thing. But then, by that point, I was weary a bit of how in other canons digimon always appeared only before children and the mostly good and decent. Savers defies that a lot, both showing adults with digimon partners and that sometimes a digimon and a human don't always have the noblest of reasons for being together.

"Disabled people donít have special needs. We have very reasonable human needs. Our needs include freedom from abuse, violence, and mistreatment, the right to autonomy and self-direction, the right to represent ourselves, equal opportunity for education and employment, the right to accommodation, and societal inclusion and acceptance.

The need for accommodation isnít a ďspecial needĒ. Itís a basic human right. Itís a leveling of the playing field that allows us the same opportunities and chances as non-disabled people."

Oh, I liked the episodes, but a lot of people justifiably didn't like how the fights were handled.
I did, but that was mainly because I thought Masaru having to punch digimon was incredibly amusing.

For some reason - possibly it was where the sub group I was using started? - the first I saw of Savers was MachGaogamon's debut, and it was pretty strong from that point on (though I stopped watching for no reason at all around when ElDoradimon appeared).

Yay, a Digimon thread!

Given my dislike of anime, I bet a lot of people will be surprised, but I like Digimon. icon-hotrod.gif Granted, I am still lagging behind in watching series 2, but I have seen this and that from all series. I enjoy the concept of the programs/data on the internet being actually intelligent evolving creatures in another dimension that we can interact with. Plus, the creature designs are usually awesome. Generally, Digimon blows Pokemon out of the water in regards to storytelling (I stopped watching, but did Team Rocket ever came even close to capturing Pikatchu... and why do they want it so badly?), characters (too many favourites to name) and actually speaking creatures (the main flaw of Pokemon that just makes it uninteresting to me, after all, it's like the world of a 1000 Armada cartoon Minicons).

Heck, I like it so much, one day I got inspired and drew the various phases of Shockwave, if he was a Digimon. icon-hotrod.gif

I think I'm going to have to re-watch Savers soon.
I say it is my favorite series, but I've seen the others more recently. Might be good to refresh my memory of it.


Plus I watched most of the last arc RAW due to impatience.
Had to read onkeikun's summaries after each episode to get an idea of what was going on.

Optikkmon is a floral Beholder?
Oculomon is a Beast Machines Diagnostic Drone?

Just saying I watched Summer Wars (yes, just NOW. Yes, I know there was a thread here months ago). Digimon nostaaaaalgia! It's seriously what Our War Game aka Digimon Movie 2 was suppose to be if it wasn't tied to Digimon?

I stopped Xcros Wars after the Volcanomon episode. Before Dorulu, Drilleomon's origin. Shoutmon annoys me so much so I quit. I'll watch it complete some time in the future.

Savers wasn't that bad. Hated that the 'tamers' were older kids. Loved the seeing old Digimon cameos. Tamers is still the best. Then Adventure 01. Eeh on Frontier. I can't even remember the name of the two Tamer less Digimon sidekicks (Bokumon?).

Hey, she gets them when she merges with Rika. I mean, I like to think that those are Renamon's.

Shockemon is adorable. I did a similar thing ages and ages ago with Pikachu once (taking Pichu as "fresh" and so on, and then doing champion and ultimate forms for him.)

I think I'm sold on making an attempt with Savers, though. It sounds Tamers-y enough to try, and I like the idea of adults with Digimon partners.

This week's new fan-made digimon winner: Footmon



A soccer themed Beelzebmon? How odd. That's interesting that the original didn't really have any Beelzebmon elements, but Bandai's reinterpretation added them in. At least it doesn't have the third demon eye.

Well, I kinda hope we never see Footmon again. =)

Savers never really caught my interest. I didn't find any of the characters to be likable, and didn't find the hero's organization to be much better than the first villain's group, so watching it was kind of a chore. I think I kept up until the Eldoradimon episodes or so, then got busy and just never went back. One of these days I'll finish it.

That I actually liked better, because then the kids were less cheerleaders and got more involved.

I guess that's part of why I like Xros Wars so much, because Taiki and Kiriha often get their hands dirty, and hell Zenjirou even swung a sword about.

PM me if you're bored!
