@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Transformers are Buy 2 Get 1 free at Target this week.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 04:29 AM)

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.

  • Bagged Opalescence. lawl
  • Opalescence may be vicious, but she still wants that dress done~
  • That race is a My Fair Lady reference, after a fashion~
  • SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG
  • Great SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG. Far more fitting than the pet one, and IMHO generally better, too
  • Socialising is work, judging by Rarity's Mane~
  • Opalescence really wants that dress done~
  • Nooo~ You broke it, Rarity icon-screamer.gif

  • Fancy Pants is a pretty cool pony~ Achievement Unlocked: TROPE REVERSAL.
Great episode. Loved the trope reversal with Fancy Pants in particular. I suppose one could complain about Rarity getting off more or less scots-free, but tbh... I hate full backlash/ drama in such things :< She learned her lesson, anyway.

[scavgraphics] 8:10 am: Element crisis!
[scavgraphics] 8:10 am: Spirit of Generosity, too generous with her time
[Dvandom] 8:10 am: And, will the Wacky Hijinks result merely from the lies coming apart, or from the other Mane Six showing up in person. Or in pony, I suppose.
[scavgraphics] 8:11 am: if they showed up in person, that would cause hijinks
[Agent X] 8:11 am: SAw a Heartstrings-like pony in the derby crowd.

[scavgraphics] 8:18 am: was that Batman as a fireman?
[Dvandom] 8:18 am: So, I guess the next act will involve Rarity trying to sneak out of the "everyone take care of poor Opal" party, then sneak back in, etc.

[sobana] 8:32 am: Workbench? I thought he was in Germany!
[Nayuki] 8:32 am: pony names from this episode: Jet Set, Upper Crust, Hayseed Turnip Truck, Fancypants, Rapidfire, Fleetfoot.
[WorkbenchManiac] 8:33 am: I am
[WorkbenchManiac] 8:33 am: Rezo, too
[Dvandom] 8:35 am: Thanks to HTT, we now have a Herp to go with Derp.
[scavgraphics] 8:35 am: did we actually see rapidfire and fleetfoot?
[pao] 8:35 am: Y'know, that dress never happened
[WorkbenchManiac] 8:35 am: and its just as well it didnt
[Dvandom] 8:35 am: Fleur di Trois
[scavgraphics] 8:35 am: didn't see Derpy
[WorkbenchManiac] 8:35 am: that hat looks positively papal
[Dvandom] 8:35 am: I mean in general, Scav.
[The Well]: sobana has left at 8:35 am
[Dvandom] 8:36 am: Fleur knows from blocking.
[Dvandom] 8:36 am: But not from timing.
[Caboose] 8:36 am: I love how Fancy Pants's ladyfriend uses Princess Luna's model.
[scavgraphics] 8:36 am: I didn't get what you were saying dave, I just mentioned, no Derpy
[pao] 8:36 am: I'm not sure if we could identify Rapidfire or Fleetfoot; they were depicted, but in uniform and mostly going way too fast...it'll be on again in a minute and can check
[scavgraphics] 8:37 am: I spied a ponified gucci logo in there
[Dvandom] 8:37 am: Scav: Turnip Truck is Herp. Derpy is Derp. The show now has Herp and Derp.
[Nayuki] 8:37 am: Rapidfire isn't specified, Fleetfoot is the white maned mare
[Dvandom] 8:37 am: ROYAL CANTERLOT ANNOUNCER VOICE

[pao] 8:39 am: thanks, Nayuki
[Dvandom] 8:39 am: I can't make out what Fancy Pants's cutie mark is....
[Rezo] 8:39 am: three crowns/ diademsn, I think
[Dvandom] 8:41 am: Hmmm...due to time travel accident, Doctor Dinosaur ends up in Equestria and has to put up with Fluttershy dragon-fangirling all over him. (Random crossover thought)
[DeAtHmArE] 8:43 am: That art is neat.
[Dvandom] 8:44 am: Heh...when she wants to look "art geek" she adopts Twi's hairstyle.
[pao] 8:44 am: Rarity totally just bid up the vase to mess with them
[Dvandom] 8:44 am: Blueblood cameo.
[scavgraphics] 8:44 am: oh it was an air yacht they're riding on
[Dvandom] 8:45 am: Opal is rather ill-used in this ep.
[scavgraphics] 8:46 am: Opal has two modes, pin cushion and Diva angry cat
[Dvandom] 8:46 am: And crotch-licking regular cat.

[Dvandom] 9:00 am: Obviously, Fleur can't be "arm candy", but "flank candy" sounds a little iffy.
[Rezo] 9:00 am: Eh... I'd assume a ten- to twenty year difference
[scavgraphics] 9:00 am: all the fillies say she's pretty homey for a purple pony

[The Well]: DeAtHmArE has left at 9:01 am
[Guardian Prime] 9:04 am: @Rezo...I can see it happening since that really isn't all that uncommon in reality. My parents have a 10 year difference between them,
and my adopted grandparents have 21 years between them for age. Sounds odd to most people, but I'm used to seeing that kind of age difference.
[Nayuki] 9:05 am: alright, later everyone. I'll check on the thread a little later... for now, I think I need a couple more hours of sleep

[scavgraphics] 9:07 am: here too..big snow
[The Well]: Dvandom has left at 9:07 am
[pao] 9:08 am: we get the storm (not supposed to be snow, though) late tomorrow
[Guardian Prime] 9:08 am: Cold here too. No snow, but still at near freezing temps.
[pao] 9:08 am: enjoy, everyone

Well after watching the repeat on the livestream I have to say that I enjoyed that episode. We got another good song sung by Rarity which is always a plus.

Pinkie's party cannon was awesome. I have an image of her invading somewhere and firing parties everywhere.

Disappointed that Luna didn't make an appearance, given that the whole episode took place in Canterlot. Then again, there really wasn't any need for her to be there so it's understandable. I wouldn't want the show to just throw characters in for no reason.

All in all, a good solid episode if you ask me icon-ironhide.gif

Overall a very good ep.

I thought the song was great, but not quite up there with Find a Pet. It is officially called "Becoming Popular (The Pony Everypony Should Know)".
Also at 1:09 of the song (as one of the comments points out, where they show a ton of ponies, Derpy is in the lower left quadrant with her bag hat.


I really liked Rarity's mane in the art gallery. The luggage pony definitely seemed a bit like a Simpson's reference. Pinkie's party cannon was epic. Can't wait to gif this ep.

I think a good name for Fancypants's flank candy would be Pretty Poser.

Drives us bats! Really drives us bats! Drives us baaaats!

Anyway, great episode. Loved all the cameos from old pals like Photo Finish and Blueblood, great new characters like the snotty couple, finally getting to see Canterlot itself... just great.

And the last few minutes were HILARIOUS.

It was kinda abbreviated, more of a reference to the classic sitcom schtick of "be two places at once" than a full implementation of it. Now, Baldrick, fetch me my Very Strong Drink.

Nayuki, I see you lurking down there, mind to tell why did you choose Luna's template for this pony:


Remember when people were talking about Celestia going undercover as a white unicorn with pink hair? What if that's her? It would explain a few things if Miss Invite-Ponies-to-Mess-Up-the-Gala-Just-to-Stick-It-to-Those-Snobby-Rich-Folks were in cahoots with Mr. Use-Your-Influence-to-Mess-With-the-Canterlot-Elite there. Maybe she was just discussing her plan with him when they ran into Rarity and she decided to pose as his arm candy.

Yeah, I'm glad the "two-places-at-once" plot wasn't dragged out over an extremely uncomfortable half-the-episode like it normally is. As Malcolm from Malcolm in the Middle put it, "This is like that episode of... well, everything."

And do I spy balloon-popping pony in that composite shot? I do!

I was wondering about that, what was your question?


The episode was a lot of fun, as usual Rarity cracks me up with her mannerisms.

The snooty canterlot-accent annoyed me fiercely, but apparently that?s what it was supposed to do.

I can?t understate how much I love the little Pinkie Pie moments in the last couple of episodes.

Overall I enjoyed this episode a lot. Great fun all around.

I thought the song was great, but not quite up there with Find a Pet.
Conversely, I thought it was way better.

I'm not yet sure whether to rank it slightly ahead or slightly behind Winter Wrapup/ Art of the Dress, but it's certainly in the same general area (Top tier).

The only, tiny problem I have with it is that it's really easy to tell that Rarity's normal and singing voice are distinct - the difference is substantially more pronounced than it was in Art of the Dress.

lol...I wonder how Derpy snuck into high-class society wearing a paper bag for a hat? icon-fire.gif


Overall, I really enjoyed this episode. My fave background character for this particular episode would have to be Fancy Pants. He's much more open minded than the rest of the high-class ponies there. I also liked the white unicorn with the pink hair that looks similar to Luna, but thinner. To me, she looked like a cross between Luna and Celestia, but without wings.
