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.

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?

@  Nevermore : (23 July 2017 - 06:32 AM)

I always took it to be a catch-all term for "person or thing of the same name" regardless of which came first.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:06 PM)

So technically it could be either way and not be wrong, but it is more apt to be Kalidor's example.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (22 July 2017 - 10:05 PM)

one that has the same name as another; especially : one who is named after another or for whom another is named

@  Kalidor : (22 July 2017 - 09:45 PM)

I think the official meaning is that a namesake is the person or thing that is named after something else. So the USS Kalidor would be Kalidor's namesake

@  Pennpenn : (22 July 2017 - 08:30 PM)

I thought it was either?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (22 July 2017 - 08:27 PM)

It is very irritating that no one seems to agree on whether the word "namesake" refers to the thing that came first or the thing that came second.

The horror,Hasbro's facebook page has FOC Bruticus colored in G-2 colors,I want the game informer colors not neon G-2 colors. Hasbro what are you doing? WHY the hideous G-2 neon colors?
http://www.facebook.....type=1

I want the the Game stop store magazine Game informer colors,that were non-neom/Non-G-2 Colored:
http://i75.photobuck..._scaled_800.jpg

Can someone please email hasbro & ask them which FOC Bruticus colors their using. the Game informer magazine colors of the toyfair facebook neon G-2 colors.

Can we all form a petition & ask hasbro to use the game stop game informer magazine FOC Bruticus/combaticons colors instead.

Is their someone or a crew at Hasbro on a deliberate mission to Ruin Transformers toys by slapping ugly color schemes on them?

do the hasbro crew think the second colors will be more appealing to younger kids?

are these second colors being done deliberately to force fans to buy the Takara versions?

Are these second colors being done on purpose to release the awful colors first? then later on release the molds in better colors,to make fans pay for the molds over & over again?

Either way,I loved the Game informer magazine colors the best. as they looked great on the mold & MORE IMPORTANTLY MADE THE MOLD LOOK MORE GROWN UP & geared for a older teenager/fans buying audience.

I was hoping when I saw FOC Bruticus in those ugly colors at Hasbro's nyc toyfair this saturday. that these were the rusehed un-finished test shot colors & not the final colors.

GEE GADS,Those recent hasbro facebook FOC Bruticus colors are pure awful. the neon colors are blinding & look horrid/aful/toddler on those molds.

the neon yellow swindle looks leaps & bounds worse than the mustard yellow dull colored swindle. Neon Brawl looks like lime green jello colored. Vortex thatv red looks bad & that purple neon colored copter blade makes the mold look like garbage as it doesn't blend it with the other colors. that neon colored purple blast off has un-realitic shuttle colors & looks worse than the game informer gold colors,at the very least the gold colors had age & looked cool. the more neon blue+neon green+neon yellow high lights all over onslaught just looks like throw up & pure awful. the neon yellow should upward bladed on bruticus look horrible & no where as great/cool/awesome as the first colors grey shoulder upward things from the game informer magazine.

The Hasbro facebook bruticus combiner parts & weapons looks awful/horrible/puke compared to the awesome Game stop magaine game informer combiner parts & weapons. Purple neon bruticus fist are ulgy & blinding. the mix matched neon colored tiny weapons that combine to form the huge bruticus hand weapon look so miix matched & don't blend into to one another well enough to form a convincing looking big weapon. The game stop magazine game informer combiner parts & weapons look much more adult/mature/bland/normal/non-toddler looking & more awesome.

In closing: if hasbro colors this FOC Bruticus in these ugly neon colors,then I simply won't buy it. I might buy the takara non-neon colors instead. I have a feeling Takara will color FOC Bruticus in G-1 1985 Combaticons/bruticus colors. the takara colors will probably look better than the game informer magazine colors & the horrid/awful recent hasbro facebook G-2/Neon Colors

The neon colors are a test sample. based on everything (at least that I have read) from Toyfair. Bruticus's final colors will be closer to his in game informer colors.

I was told personally by Josh Jivoin the colors were going to be close to what you see in the game.

That does not make me think that the alternate one they showed at Toy Fair isn't also going to see some kind of release, as they had stock photos for that version in their presentation.

I didn't read the whole rambling thing. But I am amused by folks pulling G2 out when it's much, much closer to Energon Bruticus Maximus. Heh.

My feeling is it's a cool toy in either set of colors.


-ZacWilliam, one is more video gameish one more kid's toyish but both are fine with me.
