I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

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.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

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?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 12:22 PM)

so the weekend of SDCC, the TSA banned COMIC BOOKS from check-in luggage. http://lechicgeek.bo...ium=LCG FB Page

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

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.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (23 July 2017 - 11:16 PM)

Has anyone here ever had trouble with orders from Tfsource before?

@  BlackMax : (23 July 2017 - 09:29 PM)

Good track, but I prefer Paranoid. Is there any tune better for this board? "tell a joke and I will sigh, and you will laugh, and I will cry".

@  Evac : (23 July 2017 - 06:15 PM)

Yo.

Macross Delta sucks but I listen to the music anyway.

Don't forget the rock music and D&D.

He certainly doesn't have the time to be employed full-time what with all the war-stoking, dinosaur fossil burying, pornographing and etc

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 July 2017 - 06:44 AM)

Look, I'm TRYING, okay?

@  Bass X0 : (23 July 2017 - 06:40 AM)

The devil is a part-timer!

@  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

I wasn't expecting much from this from the promos, but now I'm glad I watched it on a whim because it's much, much better than I expected. Supernatural horror? Check. Comedy? Check. Violence? Check. Awkward nerd sex? Check. Vaguely homoerotic undertones between the two male leads? Check.

After ep 3, it'll be interesting to see what happens next week. HIGHLIGHT to view:
Our hero's on his deathbed, and apparantly the dead can return to life. Somehow I don't think he's gonna pull a wolverine healing factor out of his ass...

I've stayed away mainly cause chavtastic BBC 3 won't shut up about how scary it supposedly is. Then again, they thought two recent episodes of Doctor Who were scary as well.

Watched the first ep and thought it was pretty good. Looks pretty good for a tv show.

Enjoying it so far. Hasn't gripped me like Being Human, but then again, neither did Survivors.

The 2 main leads are great, especially Mac. Natalie's pretty cool too.

Speaking of Being Human - a show I really enjoyed - is the spin-off Becoming Human any good?

Some of the new Doctor Who is indeed scary as heck. Sure, they often brush it off with awkward wacky comedy from the Doctor, but overall the whole new series has too much horror elements for my liking (there is hardly an episode that doesn't feature a Mr./Mrs. Hi-Then-Die investigating some odd phenomenon that normal, sensible people would run away from screaming, you know, typical stuff that makes me want to scream "Don't open that door you idiot!")

Becoming Human is OK. It's only 1 episode long, but was cut up and shown weekly on the website.

By itself it probably isn't that great. What made it worth it was the various tie in posters, letters, videos etc that were posted throughout the week on the website.

Fades picked up the pace last night and went from "Good enough to watch live" to "Unmissable"

yeah, last night's ep was awesome. The actor who played John's performance as a guy recently returned to the land of the living was superb. But the ending has me confused, though,

HIGHLIGHT to view:
Did the ritual work? Or did Paul really, despite my hopeful prediction, pull a self-resurrection power out of his behind at the last minute?

I preferred it that way. Otherwise people would be saying "Oh look, 2 angelics can resurrect a human being, why don't they do that for the murdered members"

But at the same time, if Paul can come back, then you've got to wonder if any of the evil fades will learn that trick too.

And I agree, the guy playing John was exceptional. Especially when he was on the roof top eating chocolate
