A loose Scraplet wandering around??? Get back to the damn bar where you belong.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (27 July 2017 - 01:16 PM)

Or a scraplet!

@  Dracula : (27 July 2017 - 12:25 PM)

you might be a witch or a vampire.

@  Dracula : (27 July 2017 - 12:25 PM)

it's called "melting," yeah

@  tffan01 : (27 July 2017 - 12:17 PM)

I can't be the only one.

Anyone get this weird sensation when they're showering in hot water?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 11:48 PM)

Stop making business sense! Your triggering my irrational hatred more!

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:49 PM)

We know why places ain't pre-ordering. Walmart wants "SNES Mini in stock!" In there adds to get people into the strores, and GameStop wants to hold systems back till production is over with to scalp them.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (26 July 2017 - 10:47 PM)

When The Revolution Comes, They'll Be The First Against The Wall-Mart

@  D Buster Prime : (26 July 2017 - 06:20 PM)

Wal-Mart? More like Off The Wall-Mart! Amiright?! *cries over canceled preorder*

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:39 PM)

And the Walmart debacle has no doubt pissed off a whole lot of people. What should be fun is turned into a harrowing experience by these kind of pathetic sales tactics

@  TM2-Megatron : (26 July 2017 - 05:38 PM)

Nintendo is really starting to push fans' patience with this SNES classic thing. Why are preorders open someplaces overseas but not in North America?

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:03 PM)

Well anywho it's out in Canada and I grabbed mine. I couldn't find a thread so just as a warning: watch out when flipping the head out -- I scratched the paint off a bit while doing so. Very little clearance!

@  Msol : (26 July 2017 - 05:01 PM)

Is MPM-3 Bumblebee out in the US yet?

@  Daith : (26 July 2017 - 03:40 PM)

So all of us who thought we had our SNES Classic lined up friday night through Walmart.com just got flipped the bird.

@  Evac : (26 July 2017 - 08:51 AM)

Same.

@  MEDdMI : (26 July 2017 - 05:15 AM)

I just hate Facebook.

@  Confuzor : (26 July 2017 - 01:25 AM)

I hate when follow a link to an article from Facebook it has all this extra junk in the address box, so if I want to copy/paste to send to my friends via text, I have to go hunt down the "permalink" so it's a more manageable size

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 08:52 PM)

*sigh* Yup.

@  Foffy : (24 July 2017 - 06:16 PM)

That's the exact opposite of what Facebook wants to happen, though. They're hoping you get sucked in by other content and end up spending more time on Facebook and/or making an account.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (24 July 2017 - 04:02 PM)

I hate that these days when you use a permalink to a Facebook post, the rest of the page's material still shows up below. Like, WTF, I only want the old way of seeing the post and nothing else!

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:34 PM)

I call bullshit on that

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 01:08 PM)

Read the article. Apparently too many comics sets off the machines due to the glossy pages messing up the X-ray

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 01:03 PM)

what possible justification could they have to ban books containing drawings?

@  MEDdMI : (24 July 2017 - 12:56 PM)

Per the article, United appears to be the only airline, but there might be others.

@  Dracula : (24 July 2017 - 12:48 PM)

Like anyone needed another reason not to fly United

@  Evac : (24 July 2017 - 12:46 PM)

No, apparently just United did.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 12:22 PM)

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 10:52 AM)

Note I wrote "bombshell"in lowercase.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:17 AM)

in this case, face

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 10:16 AM)

depends what appendage its used on.

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

I'm something something years old and I have actually never shaved with anything other than electric

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

is it worth the trouble?

@  Benbot : (24 July 2017 - 10:15 AM)

Why does a safety razor give a closer shave than an electric razor?

@  RichardT1977 : (24 July 2017 - 10:08 AM)

Nevermore That was Shrapnel, not Bombshell.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:07 AM)

Deluxe Sludge alone is enough that I probably won't have to eat anything until 2025.

@  ▲ndrusi : (24 July 2017 - 10:06 AM)

I don't know about Paladin, but I personally am fueled by the rage of fans who have a very specific idea of what a Transformers toyline should be.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (24 July 2017 - 09:23 AM)

What do you mean too good? I don't recall lots of Micromaster updates.

@  Paladin : (24 July 2017 - 09:06 AM)

i remain unconvinced. "if it sounds too good to be true, it usually is."

@  General Tekno : (24 July 2017 - 08:58 AM)

yep - especially given that sure is one hyper easy forensic trail to find everyone involved in the leak

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:56 AM)

@  Nevermore : (24 July 2017 - 08:55 AM)

Holy cow.

Jesus, that Power of the Primes bombshell leak.

@  Fear or Courage : (24 July 2017 - 08:41 AM)

At least in Canada, they have excellent customer service.

@  Maruten : (23 July 2017 - 11:33 PM)

I've ordered from them several times with no problems.

@  Telly : (23 July 2017 - 11:19 PM)

i havent. but ive only ordered from them a few times

Don't want to be a Scrooge, but I've just about have had enough of this holiday season

Of course having the Mall Santa set up his office right in front of my store is perhaps increasing my annoyance at this time of year.

Therefore, to lift my spirits, I need suggestions as to how I should dispatch this red target that sits all day, and I need them before next week, when he finally leaves. The more creative the better.

Suggest away.

Give him all the Mudflaps and Tuner Mudflaps.

Have him attempt to give them out to kids.

Kids weep.

Why you make them weep, Santa? These are horrible toys.

You can try just staring at him until his face bursts into flames, but I've noticed many mall Santas are using non-flammable fake beards now.

Therefore, go with the laser trick. But just one laser, aimed straight at his eyes, and wait until they're juuuuuust about to take the picture.

Personally, my holiday hate has more to do with working retail and having my entire life schedule forcibly rearranged for the damn seasonal overnight shift. I need a new job.

you can't beat Old Man Christmas. You might as well join him.

so tie some jingle bells to your socks and wear something green. I suggest pine-sol dipped foliage. When it comes to clothing: less is better. but don't skimp on those jingle socks.

Next time a crowd gathers 'round the red throne jump out of your store screaming carols and announce yourself as Santa's Helper. Spread cheer.

Next year they'll put their display on the other end of the mall. icon-ironhide.gif

You could always casually approach Santa, gently caress his shoulder and ask if he wants to stuff your stocking. Or shovel some coal or some other innuendo.
Reclaim the suffix.

And Scaleblade's analysis of Boxing Day is correct. But nowadays it's more like Boxing WEEK.
