No, Onyx is a snake.

Something I only just "got" last night: Of course IDW's GB Blackrock is associated with Onyx Prime. Onyx is a black rock.

Bet a lot of military people won't want to work this monday. ;(

@  Pennpenn : (21 January 2018 - 07:27 AM)

It seems sort of intuitive for a lot of people because it's the first day in the week that you're working.

@  Nevermore : (21 January 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Germany considers Monday the first day of the week.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

The judge obviously had a more material motive than the one he claimed, there need to be some serious investigation of that case.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 05:04 PM)

The reason is even worse. :(

I just think a Judge going on and Jury Tampering, trying to make the Jury think a sex taffiker is innocent is sickening. *won't say why he did that as that goes in P&R*

Heh, the schedules for my work weeks begin with Saturday

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2018 - 07:01 AM)

Thing about the US is... you can say that any time you want as much as you want. You're still going to get shot, but it might not be because you said that though.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 02:20 AM)

You just did.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (20 January 2018 - 02:18 AM)

Can I just say that right now... I hate the USA?

@  NotVeryKnightly : (20 January 2018 - 01:34 AM)

There are languages where the days are named for numbers and Sunday is "one". Like Arabic.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 01:31 AM)

Isn't it sort of a religious thing for Sunday to be the start of the week but most people just go with the first day they go to work for the week?

@  unitremover : (20 January 2018 - 01:02 AM)

I feel like I've known plenty of Americans who'd say Monday is the first day of the week.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

Personally Monday will always be the first day of the week for me. The notion that Sunday is somehow the first day of the week seems completely nonsensical to me.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2018 - 12:57 AM)

I'm fairly sure it is in Australia, but that tends to get blurred because of US influence.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:19 AM)

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (20 January 2018 - 12:18 AM)

Anyone here live in a country where Monday is considered the first day of the week?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 10:40 PM)

I hate brick and mortar stores around here.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:38 PM)

But I like the feel of the brick and mortar search a bit more. And I can see inside packages at brick and mortar. True, Amazon has a good return policy, but I like buying once and settling.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 10:37 PM)

I suppose I could save more if I bought more often from Amazon.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 10:36 PM)

Closest I got to "free" was 30% off warpath, which just about lined him up to the canadian price had he ever shown up around me. The pile of loot saved me a pile, but it was still pricy.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:34 PM)

Yeah, I purposefully waited on them because I knew they'd be perfect "add onto orders to get free shipping" fodder. Already gotten two that way. Technically "free" and I barely had to wait.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 January 2018 - 09:21 PM)

That's how I feel about Prime Masters. Getting back into collecting last year taught me to be patient, which grants rewards most of the time.

@  Shrug : (17 January 2018 - 09:18 PM)

I want Starscream so hard after seeing him in person, but since he's the one being left behind by every other collector in my area, I feel like I can wait for a sale.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:09 PM)

I mean: I maybe woulda jumped on starscream if I found a sale or something, but it wasn't a priority.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 09:08 PM)

I only wanted the dinobots (cause... volcanicus.) but got saddled with three I didn't want due to the bundling. I'd still be waiting to order if I had waited on individual figures.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 January 2018 - 08:27 PM)

Ahh.. I just ordered the whole case cause I wanted too. :)

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2018 - 06:49 PM)

Mostly PotP dinobots. Plus some stuff I couldn't opt out of to get those dinobots. And CW warpath... cause he was on sale.

The NFL season approaches. And with it, the profound hopes of millions of fans and the aspirations of some 1,700 athletes. Hopes and aspirations that were nearly sundered by the uncertainty of a labor dispute, until everybody woke the hug up and realized that they stood to lose buckets of money.

So, the continuity of the League is assured. And it's not without an intriguing set of storylines, in typical NFL fashion. Every team has its own to contribute as youth and regime changes invade the landscape and threaten balances. Will Peyton Manning miss games for the first time in his career? What does that mean for the rest of the teams within that division? The Philadelphia Eagles loaded up with talent in the offseason, as many free agents make their way to new teams. Can they possibly live up to what is expected of them? The precedent has been set, will the NCAA's wrath continue to extend beyond their reach? Will Arian Foster accommodate defenses even more by getting a tattoo of the exact spot on his leg for defenses to strike at? Will his own mama turn away in disgust, refusing to draft him for her fantasy team? Will my Bears beat down the returning champs so badly that Packer fans will break out the sweat pants and cry into a tub of whatever dairy product provides them the most comfort?

All of these things, we shall have answers for! Rejoice with me this weekend, my fellow nerds, enthusiasts, jocks, nerd/jock hybrids, and fantasy owners. Spell out your hopes and expectations, America's Game devours them all and creates tightly coiled, steaming piles of sports entertainment!

The Patriots are poised for another dominate season and a deep playoff run, the Lions actually look like they might win 9 or 10 games, and the Niners, well they still suck as long as Alex Smith is the QB, but I still have hope they might win the West. All and all it looks like a fun season ahead. I predict the Lions and the Texans will (finally in the case of the Texans) make the playoffs.

Lions are definitely poised to make noise this season. I'd say they probably have the best defensive line in the league.

Freeman is a quiet model of efficiency, they snuck up on a lot of people last year. I expect them to contend in a very tough division. They'll be in London against Chicago this year, I think? Should be entertaining.

It's a popular prediction every year, for the last several years, that this will be the year that the Lions get over the hump. I'd pump the brakes on that, though clearly they are improved. Consistency and the general health of the team would go a long way towards making that happen, though. The same is said about the Texans, who have as good a chance as they'll ever get with the Colts sans the heart of their organization.

Pretty stirring scenes all over NFL stadiums this morning.

I'm glad that the season is underway. Whoever thoughtlessly farted out the new kickoff rule is the father of all dumb ideas, though, and needs to go work for George Lucas.

I'm cautiously optimistic about late Monday night. 6-0 in the AFC West was nice last year, but my guys need to take the next step. I like Hue, and I love what he did to the offense once he took over last year. I just hope he's the right guy to be the HC.

If nothing else, it was nice to see the Steelers and Chiefs eat crap today.

Unbelievable 24 point comeback for the Lions. The broadcasters, analysts, and players all refer to Calvin Johnson as "Megatron" for good reason. Eight touchdowns in four games, the dude is monstrous. The story will be Romo pissing away victory, but the Lions seized every opportunity. I hesitate to use the word "rival", because the Bears/Lions have a rivalry like scissors have with hair, but it's difficult to not be a fan of these Lions in spite of them being in the same division.

The same week that a book attempting to smear Walter Payton's good name comes out, the Bears put up 34 points and Forte runs for over 200 yards.

Lions came back, Chiefs came back, and the Jets are trying to come back.

That's the problem; the Bills were never behind. I think that's the key to our game, trail at half time and lay waste in the second half.

Of course, having said that out loud, I'll be proven wrong this weekend icon-wildride.gif
