@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

Huh?


Having two landing runs crossing over in the middle. The whole diagonal landing setup was so launches and landings could be done simultaneously without worrying about smashing into each other.

And now they've created a specific "smash here plz" location.

That's not really an issue. Plenty of regular ground-based airports have intersecting runways; all they do is stagger the arrivals between the two so that the first plane has rolled through the intersection by the time the second plane touches down on the crossing runway.

 

Here's Houston Hobby for example. While normally they'll land on the two that go from upper-left to right, and depart on the one that goes from upper right to left, I've also come in here when they've had a plane lined up for each one of those runways, including the smaller one off to the side.

I'd say the slightly bigger issue is the angle of the ship's two runways is probably 30-40 degrees off the direction of travel meaning they make their pilots deal with a bigger cross-wind. A cross-wind like that's not a big deal at an airport, but when your landing surface is also pitching up and down, it's an added complication.

How does this thing work? They train a neural network to make random cards and then people actually play with them, something like that?
Shouldn't gravity be doing something?
 
Of course there's a figure of Rodimus as some kind of animal girl. Why would I be surprised by this?

There's a different site that does that, but these are actually real cards that have been chain-translated until things go a little wacky.

Well, I'd say that's the first time Haraway said something that made sense to me, but she did have some good lines in her cameo in the second GitS movie X ]

Arguably, the past belongs to the human components, depending on where they came from. But that might be descending into a very creepy realm of the "ship of Theseus" paradox.

Again I'm 99% sure you're arguing with Donna Haraway man. Cyborgs are literally a mythical metaphor for her half of the time. In fact I think the ambiguity of how literal she's being at any given time is what this is a pisstake of.

 

Taking everything very literally though? I'd say that everything has at least one past, the literal causal chain of events that brought it to be, and at least one more if that thing is a thinking individual capable of creating meanings within that string of objective events. Our bodies are tools, but our tools shape our interaction with and understanding of the world, so you may not be changing your memories by changing your body, but you're changing the person that's reading and interpreting and refiling them, which happens to be the same thing. I don't see where any particular kind of contribution really gets a preferential treatment here, I wouldn't necessary value "the human components" uniquely, and I don't think there's a Ship of Theseus problem that isn't present in normal human development and experience once you actually consider what those things entail in the details.

 

So out of whatever context this came from, I don't see a distinction about having kinds of pasts as meaningful. It may or may not have made more sense in context, but it's not enough to argue with by itself.
