However, another big issue is cultural differences. We do have a sense of humor, it's just different than in other cultures because it is a product of a different culture. Simply put, what you might find incredibly funny is considered unfunny by Germans... and vice versa.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:38 AM)

It's actually a multi-faceted issue. Yes, some Germans are incredibly devoid of humor, although those people exist in other countries too. I have no ideas regarding statistics, but these people exist.

@  Nevermore : (19 October 2018 - 05:37 AM)

So, about this long-standing stereotype that "Germans have no sense of humor"...

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 October 2018 - 03:49 AM)

I got enough Rand fighting my way through the Sword of Truth series. I can't imagine trying to read the original work.

@  Pennpenn : (19 October 2018 - 02:39 AM)

All the people who like Rand should go live in a big underwater city. I cannot foresee anything that could go wrong with such a scenario.

@  MidnightFox : (19 October 2018 - 01:13 AM)

Everyone needs to stop reading Rand

Ugh it's ridiculous how some people worship Rand's ideas.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 October 2018 - 09:07 PM)

That's one of the things the old cable companies got right: Only one or two options per area. The illusion of choice.

The restauraunt messes up your food, you complain to customer service. Complain to 911 when you get food poisoning from said food.

I mean, white people are calling the cops on black people for random shit lately, it appears.

@  Pennpenn : (18 October 2018 - 02:49 AM)

It's not that surprising that some people freaked out enough over Youtube being down that they'd call emergency services. I mean, I've heard of at least one instance of someone calling 911 because the restaurant didn't make a cheeseburger to their liking.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 12:09 PM)

https://philadelphia.cbslocal.com/2018/10/16/youtube-experiences-widespread-outage/ Just one of several stories about it.

Yep.

@  MEDdMI : (17 October 2018 - 11:45 AM)

people were calling 911 about YouTube being down?

@  MEDdMI : (17 October 2018 - 11:45 AM)

....what

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 October 2018 - 11:39 AM)

Apparently some people freaked out so much they called 911.

@  Pennpenn : (17 October 2018 - 07:33 AM)

I was at work when it happened I guess.

I actually agree with you MEDdMI, or at least be creative. x.x

@  MEDdMI : (16 October 2018 - 11:29 PM)

Death threats are boring. Get to know the person, then torment them with stuff that really gets under their skin. *evil grin*

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 October 2018 - 10:18 PM)

YouTube is back!

@  RichardT1977 : (16 October 2018 - 09:27 PM)

BTW for the three of you who haven't discovered yet, YouTube is down.

@  Telly : (16 October 2018 - 08:05 PM)

maybe this is that persons first death threat, and the creativity will come with more experiance

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 06:14 PM)

Nah. Or at least not near as creative as some of them I've got. This one was a basic "If I ever see you IRL I'll slit you're throat."

@  wonko the sane? : (16 October 2018 - 06:00 PM)

was it at least a creative threat?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (16 October 2018 - 01:07 PM)

Speaking of which.. Got a deaththeat today on an other messageboard. :D

@  Shockwave 75 : (16 October 2018 - 07:14 AM)

Arguing with an idiot is like playing chess with a pidgeon; no matter what you do it's going to shit on the board and strut around like it won.

@  Pennpenn : (16 October 2018 - 05:48 AM)

Well, there is also the fact that the person you're arguing against won't accept the authority as neutral (or valid or credible) unless they agree with everything that person says.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 October 2018 - 05:35 AM)

Never argue with idiots. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2018 - 05:21 AM)

Anyone who's ever argued with dumbasses on the internet knows how stubborn and persistent they can be. Dozens of people can tell them they're wrong, and they' just stick their fingers in their ears and go "na na can't hear you!"

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2018 - 05:19 AM)

Especially if its a bet about an objective truth. Chances are, you provide overwhelming evidence for your position, the dumbass won't accept your evidence or will just change the rules and then claim the money you allegedly owe him.

@  Nevermore : (16 October 2018 - 05:17 AM)

I've just been reminded of a life lesson: Never take a bet with a dumbass unless there's a neutral authority accepted by both sides that will decide on the winner.

@  TheMightyMol... : (16 October 2018 - 03:42 AM)

Peace was never an option.

@  Waspinator : (16 October 2018 - 02:03 AM)

@  Waspinator : (15 October 2018 - 11:51 PM)

The parrot, once I stopped pressing the button on the toy. It might have gone on forever otherwise.

@  Foffy : (15 October 2018 - 11:43 PM)

Depends. Who won?

@  Waspinator : (15 October 2018 - 11:37 PM)

Should I be worried that my 40-year-old parrot got into a roaring contest with a Jurassic World toy?

@  Paladin : (15 October 2018 - 04:38 PM)

was the bride's name Sarah Connor?

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 October 2018 - 04:38 PM)

A sawed off shotgun is fairly easy to conceal. Of course, they're also illegal.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (15 October 2018 - 04:19 PM)

Maybe they wear a really, really baggy coat.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2018 - 04:10 PM)

I don't wanna think about the body type where a SHOTGUN is concealed carry.

@  MEDdMI : (15 October 2018 - 04:08 PM)

Amazon's got the deal and it's a good one! I've been waiting for this to go on sale. As much as I love the shuttle, I was not a fan of the changes they made to make it a playset (such as non-retractable landing gear). That being said, 35 bucks with free shipping is hard to beat and I snagged one quick.

Unfortunately, this is the first Star Wars toy I've bought in months now - and unless those Republic Artillery cannons finally appear (never seen one in the wild - though Amazon has them for 30 bucks) it's likely to be the last. I couldn't even bring myself to buy the new Target Tauntaun.

I did find the new Walmart pair of mini-rigs yesterday, which was a surprise. Didn't even remember that they were coming out, much less that they'd been released. Spotted the Vintage wave with the SDCC guys, too.

I saw the artillery cannon once, but it was at TRU and I held off to find it cheaper elsewhere. MORE FOOL I.

(Still no Chewbacca. Maddening.)

I'm convinced it has to show up eventually. I think it's in the case with the Mandalorian Gunship so... we'll see I guess.

I believe both the Gunship and the Canon will ship into the new year.

I may need some help finding the Y-Wing Scout minirig? It disappeared fast, and isn't scheduled to ship again.

I've seen it once only and snagged it then. Maybe they'll show up in greater numbers as old stock is cleared out too.

Looks like the UK Toy Fair spilled the beans on Hasbro's next big vehicle - the MTT.



This is quite the gamble on their part. I know there has been a collector clamor for this ever since TPM first came out, but it still seems surprising they went for it. I have to say I doubt I'll spring full price for it myself. It's neat, but not that neat... I'm more excited for the Avengers helicarrier honestly.

Supposedly it's a bait and switch. Only four are regular droids and the remaining sixteen are molded in the storage mode.

This does possibly explain why the new sculpt, collapsible battle droids are significantly shorter though. Just think, you'll be able to fill it up with regular droids for only an additional 150 bucks or so!

I'd be seriously tempted to buy it if does come with 20 droid figures. Instant army my other toys could fight, with vehicle! That just tickles the kid in me.

If it doesn't, though, I'll definitely not be interested.

Yeah, I'd be more surprised if it did come with all those figs though. I assume this is going to be a hundred bucks at least already, and that many figures would easily add another fifty to seventy five or so.

The shame is, it's not like a Rebel Transport or something that can double as a carrying case. This can only store a bunch of one type of figure.

Yakface.com is reporting this will likely be a Target Exclusive, DPCI is 087-06-0846 and a price of 129.99. Well, at least we know it will go on sale - if this was a TRU exclusive it would have cost thirty dollars more AND been on shelves for five years.

Do you think Hasbro will ever make a new X-Wing toy (to scale with the figures, of course)? How many more years can they milk that old mold?
