@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

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.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

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

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

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.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

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)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 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)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

You didn't like Tiger and Bunny?

Had a weird experience in attempting to watch it and stupidly watched episode 11 (I think) first because I am a dummy who can't read episode title links properly. I've meant to go back and fix that, though.

I did not - I was really put off by Boss' voice at the time after being used to his Mazinkaiser voice. Could probably stand to go back and check it out, though.

Uh, how does everything look samey unless you're not paying attention? (or if the things are by the same studio/character designer, i.e. Kokoro Connect and K-On) And if things do look samey, why would anybody not have had this issue in earlier years? Or with male characters?

On a related note, I started reading the original Getter Robo manga, and Ryoma's design just looks horrifyingly generic compared to his New Getter Robo appearance. Or maybe he's not so much generic-looking as he makes me have to remind myself I'm not reading about an older, muscled-up Koji Kabuto. Maybe Dynamic Planning just had some sort of unified in-house style, although I don't think it really makes sense for these two to have similar facial features like that.

Heavens, no, that's not my intention, and male protags can certainly be adorable. I said that because after I made my point, you guys recced Symphogear, which to my knowledge is some kind of mecha-themed magical girl show. (I am likely terribly wrong, but that's what I've grasped from what people have posted here and in other places.)

Perhaps clarification is needed - my annoyances are based in the cutesy stuff getting popular and the fact that it appeals to the really skeevy neckbeardy fans that I really do not want to get lumped in with. It's the same idea as not wanting to go near ponies as a guy for fear of getting associated with Bronies. Obviously not all fans are like that, but that insecurity is there.

Lemme see... I guess that insecurity is manifested into something like a combination sour grapes and jealousy mindset. Since I can't get to the shows in question (because of my own imposed ways of thinking), therefore they must be terrible and disliked. And since they're popular and keep happening, jealousy stemmed up 'cause all the decent, not-skeevy folks are getting new stuff to enjoy while I continue to be a stubborn grump and grouse because of my own stupid ill-informed opinions that spawned due to hype aversion of Haruhi Suzumiya ...seven... frickin' years ago...

...



Jive, that got introspective and I did not expect to decipher a mindset at 5AM. Pardon the epiphany, that just sort of happened while I was replying. And now I know I'm an insecure dumbass who's missed out on a lot of potentially cool stuff. Or in short, in this topic, Wingus figures out he's been a dumb jive for years and some introspection has caused his To-Watch list to expand exponentially. icon-wildride.gif

I think I wound up shoving it to the backburner as a combination of my own screw-up in trying to start it, and it was still coming out about the time I fell into Kamen Rider.

I see Cute Girls without context, they blur together. It's mostly an issue of my own laziness because I can't be bothered to go look stuff up (or start to, get distracted, and never get back to it). And somehow, the few times I DO go look things up, it ends up being the stuff I genuinely don't like, which discourages me from looking up more. Yeah, I've got issues.

And I do have the same issue with male characters, so it's not a gender-related thing at all.

You should also try Star Driver. It's kinda like Gurren Lagann, but with the Hotbloodedness replaced by Fabulosity.

I can't remember why I stopped watching that show.

Symphogear doesn't rely on cuteness to sell things, you really should give it a try Wingus.

That's pretty true for most of season 1, but after the ending of the most recent episode, I'm starting to lose faith in it. (Although I'd say the second season isn't really necessary)

Could just be that after a while, the parade of Cute Girls all start to look pretty same-y.

Uh, how does everything look samey unless you're not paying attention? (or if the things are by the same studio/character designer, i.e. Kokoro Connect and K-On) And if things do look samey, why would anybody not have had this issue in earlier years? Or with male characters?

I see Cute Girls without context, they blur together. It's mostly an issue of my own laziness because I can't be bothered to go look stuff up (or start to, get distracted, and never get back to it). And somehow, the few times I DO go look things up, it ends up being the stuff I genuinely don't like, which discourages me from looking up more. Yeah, I've got issues.

And I do have the same issue with male characters, so it's not a gender-related thing at all.

Huh. Well, I don't have the issue with things blurring together or looking samey despite having interest in very little. Not sure why.

Eh, it was like, one scene so far out the four episodes that are out. If they did that at the end of each episode then I'd be worried.
