People forget the whole phrase. It's "Great minds thing alike, but fools rarely differ."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

The German version is very straightforward: "Two idiots, one idea."

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

English: "Great minds think alike".

@  Nevermore : (21 February 2019 - 08:49 PM)

Here's an example of a phrase that's charmingly positive in English but self-deprecating in German:

@  wonko the sane? : (21 February 2019 - 12:36 PM)

Turns out the basic figures in the transformers siege line are basically minicons, and my sister is back in the hospital for another psychotic break. It's been an emotional day, and it's not even 1 pm yet.

@  Pennpenn : (21 February 2019 - 12:27 AM)

Maybe, or maybe it'd be more like wood? Y'know, bashing each other with planks.

@  Ashley : (21 February 2019 - 12:23 AM)

Also, do Softmus Prime and Slumblebee engage in pillow fights?

It's not "Optiplush"... it's "Softimus Prime"

@  Ashley : (19 February 2019 - 08:19 PM)

I've got the two plushes from the first movie, they're great

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 08:00 PM)

Still have mine, although Optiplush Prime is kind of discolored

@  Shrug : (19 February 2019 - 07:59 PM)

They came out around the time of the first movie with the big merch push, but they were distinctly G1 and everything else wasnt, IIRC

@  Trpodeca : (19 February 2019 - 04:51 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 01:41 PM)

I did not even know those things were a thing. I guess they didn't do very well cause they didn't make more of them.

@  Steevy Maximus : (19 February 2019 - 01:25 PM)

Pfft, Hasbro did that 12 years ago with Slumblebee and Optiplush Prime

@  Xellos : (19 February 2019 - 12:37 PM)

Well, this past Christmas I did see licensed plush Transformers that went from their robot to vehicle mode by turning inside out just like popples.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 February 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Why DIDN'T transformers make plushes ala popples?

@  ▲ndrusi : (19 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Design in mixed media and make him out of actual flannel.

@  Lancer : (18 February 2019 - 09:24 PM)

Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:10 PM)

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:09 PM)

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:16 PM)

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

Thinking of making a pair of moose Transformer OCs, male and female. Thier a lovey dovy pair of lumberjacks

i just checked my past tfsource orders, and theres no sales tax charge

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

@  unluckiness : (18 February 2019 - 03:25 AM)

Hank Pym<<<< Hank Hill

@  PlutoniumBoss : (18 February 2019 - 01:28 AM)

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

Looks like the old Apple thread went poof in Kal's mad plan to make things work, so here's a new one.

So, my iPad (1) and my iPod Touch 4th Gen are not updated to iOS5.

My main computer is a G5 running Leopard. (I have a Mac book pro @ snow leopard and a dodgy Dell Hackentosh also at Snow Leopard).

I'm considering upgrading my iDevices to iOS 5. What, if anything, will I gain from this, given the limitations of my main computer?

Yeah, I was going to post that myself.

This thread should be about the Beatles.

I would hold off till they bring out iOS 5.1 which is said to introduce multi touch gestures to the iPad 1 and that way you will avoid some of the bugs in 5

huh..had you asked me, I'd have sworn the first update had already happened (or was that 5.0.1)?
Any rumored time of release on that?

Beta 2 of 5.0.1 was just seeded to developers recently, so it shouldn't be long now. I'd go ahead and upgrade. There's a ton of new features in iOS 5 that may make your life easier depending on what you do. And once you get this update out of the way, all the future updates will be over the air. You won't be dependent on plugging it into a computer just to upgrade.

Oh you and me both. They need to make them like "Windows Updates". Automatic, invisible, in the background etc.

It's the same on the desktop. I rarely reboot the laptop, so that's also got a load of updates waiting to be installed

It still baffles me that Apple doesn't use their own push notification framework to show a badge or an alert whenever you have apps to update.

^ it does (unless I'm mis understanding what you're saying).

I used to just hit update all each day..but then a comic app went evil with an update, and I wanted to keep the version I had, so I had to do updates 1 by 1...and then it all went downhill from there.

And here I am wishing Windows Update were more like the one iOS has ? one centralized system that handles all my app updates instead of having to rely on a dozen different self-updaters and even more programs that don't bother with one at all.

There's just no reason for it. It's a technology that served its purpose, and still has a purpose, but that purpose isn't the web anymore.

Cool iOS 5 feature I just discovered: hold down the back arrow in Safari rather than clicking it and you'll pull up a desktop style option of going back to a specific page (rather than having to click each page back one at a time). Appears to be iPad only right now (5.0.1)


"Someone once told me that Time is a predator that stalked us all our lives, but I'd rather believe that Time is a companion who goes with us on the journey, and reminds us to cherish every moment -- because they'll never come again."
