Armada Starscream?

@  Pennpenn : (22 January 2017 - 07:13 AM)

Actually I'm vaguely surprized samurai themed Seekers haven't somehow congealed within the TF brand at some point.

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 08:26 PM)

if they dont seek pizza im out

@  Bass X0 : (21 January 2017 - 02:40 PM)

Samurai Seeker Jets!

The Big Cheese is the villain, who's lower than low. It's a rotten shame he lives in Little Tokyo.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:38 PM)

For the kaiju/restaurant theme, better be the Samurai Pizza Cats instead.

@  Rycochet : (21 January 2017 - 12:28 PM)

I prefer Mighty Morphin' Meower Rangers.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 12:07 PM)

Okay, that got too weird, let's just use the Megazordenny's instead.

@  ▲ndrusi : (21 January 2017 - 09:20 AM)

no, no, not all hope for the characters, all hope for the viewer understanding what the hell is going on.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (21 January 2017 - 07:33 AM)

Isn't that like.. every second spent watching Eva? *hides!*

@  Telly : (21 January 2017 - 02:26 AM)

usually about halfway through, when all hope seems lost

@  Copper Bezel : (21 January 2017 - 02:01 AM)

I understand using Eva to fight monsters, but where does Bob come into it?

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:29 AM)

Of course we'll need Bob EVAs to fight all these critters...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (21 January 2017 - 01:21 AM)

Or Otachipotle.

Sorry Waspinator, but Sean Bean already reserved that one.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 09:51 PM)

Isn't the answer "Pepperoni and Cheese"?

Fair enough, sorry. Although, I think as more people get upset you're going to see it leaking out more.

Can the politics stay in P&R? I don't really need an emetic that badly.

@  Pennpenn : (20 January 2017 - 05:37 PM)

All of Trump's base are stone cold morons, so there's that. Then again, a lot of people would argue that America has nevr been "great", or even when it is there's plenty to bring down it's score.

@  Vexwing : (20 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

A lot of Trump's base would probably claim it stopped being great 8 years ago.

@  Locoman : (20 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

And today is National Cheese Lover's Day, apparently, so perhaps we should make America grate again while we're at it

@  Bass X0 : (20 January 2017 - 03:43 PM)

How long has it not been great for?

@  Nevermore : (20 January 2017 - 02:34 PM)

Finally, America is great again.

@  wonko the sane? : (20 January 2017 - 12:03 PM)

@  Arazyr : (20 January 2017 - 10:08 AM)

My daughters and I have been looking forward to that!

@  Benbot : (20 January 2017 - 09:44 AM)

Nevermind that. Today is a day to celebrate, because season 2 of Voltron is up on Netflix!

@  ShadowMan024 : (19 January 2017 - 06:51 PM)

Past 8 years? Try "past 241."

@  Xellos : (19 January 2017 - 06:44 PM)

So basically the same as the past 8 years. Guess that works too.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 06:25 PM)

We as a nation either drank too much or not enough. It's difficult to say, really.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (19 January 2017 - 06:10 PM)

Isn't America being crazy drunk how we got in this situation in the first place?

@  BlackMax : (19 January 2017 - 04:18 PM)

I plan on being very American about every single injustice our new leader perpetrates ("American" of course meaning "annoyed and loud").

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 January 2017 - 02:38 PM)

I plan to just stick my fingers in my ears and pretend I don't hear anything.

@  Bass X0 : (19 January 2017 - 02:26 PM)

I recommend America just get crazy drunk for the next four years. It's the only way you're going to get through them.

@  Paladin : (19 January 2017 - 08:34 AM)

What on this board could possibly be triggering ads for "Cougerlife" (other than my now referencing it). Most times the ads seem relatively straight forward like the ones for actual, electrical transformers or the education ones even... But is there a forum I don't know about where we all talk about hooking up with older women? icon-fire.gif

I do try to do my part and click a banner from time to time but I can just imagine THAT conversation with the missus.

Or worse still, am I the only one seeing these ads? O.o

I think there's a thread in Politics and Religion about how a school had to stop calling its team the Cougars because it was considered disrespectful to horny women over 50.

That might be it.

This is a forum where grown men discuss children's toys, video games, comic books, and cartoons... it doesn't exactly take an advanced algorithm to target that kind of advertising.

All I ever seem to see are "DATE ASIAN GIRLS" and the likes.

Because apparently, happiness with a significant other is determined by ethnicity.

You're far too young to be this bitter and angry at the world....

I'm reading that with Roy's voice. Heck, I read everything you post in a laconic Irish accent.

I was laughing about it the other day. I had a CougerLife ad for a couple of threads, then switched to a new thread and got an ad for Chuck-E-Cheese. Google has decided that a site full of toy-loving manchildren would like nothing more than to take their older-woman dates out for some pizza and skiball.

Though, to be honest, my wife (who is actually a bit younger than me) have been on many Chuck-E-Cheese dates, so maybe Google does know me pretty well.

No offense to Kal, but I don't see the Google ads thanks to Adblock. I did donate a little in the last server drive so hopefully that offsets my bad karma.

I've seen the Cougar-Life ads for weeks now, and for months I've seen "Oh My! So many dresses!", which is the one that cracks me up the most.

Transformers is a brand that really has something for everyone. We are a darn lucky fandom.
