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.

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

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

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

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

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.

In the beginning new Subways were only built every twelve months. Then six, then three. Then every two weeks. In four days we could be seeing a new Subway every eight hours until they are coming every four minutes.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

One bite is all it takes.

@  Locoman : (18 January 2017 - 03:44 PM)

I'm a little worried by how many Subways there are in my vincinity. Like, there are two within walking distance of my house, and I pass about four of them on my way to work

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 January 2017 - 03:41 PM)

I'd almost rather eat the corpse, but then again, it's probably been eating Subway too, with my luck.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 January 2017 - 02:33 PM)

Thank you background discussion of the screwed economy, differences between NAILS and non-existent infrastructure!

That is EXACTLY what this book needed to remind us of the totally new society trying to form from the Chaos here. Very cool. icon-hotrod.gif Hope there's more like that inside.

(The two NAILs who come to Wheeljack are fine, but they're the two "normal ones" again. Really I want to see the less "normal bodied" ones we see in the backgrounds get spotlight/dialogue too. Even more really. But hey, this is a big step the right way. )

I agree that's likely why he was added to the team but hey, I'll take it over my beloved Sky Dive buying it any day. And hey he does kinda have a toy: http://tfwiki.net/wiki/Barrel_Roll so you can add him to your own team... as long as you do lots of forced perspective.

It was pretty cool of him to reach out to Dirge (even if he was naive about the Autobot's morals) so yeah I'd love to see him pull through.

I really cannot stand the Autobots in RiD. Or anyone really. I mean I get it, war just ended, tensions are running high. I just want to shake each one of them and yell WHY ARE YOU BEING SO STUPID? I mean, Prowl using Cons as a police force, and killing one in front of civilians. Metalhawk constantly being a dick to Prowl. Bumblebee being dumb. Decepticons still trying to undermine everything, new arrivals just either being bungholes or rebelling for no reason except "we weren't decepticons or autobots, so why are Autobots in charge?" STOP BEING ZSATUPID bungholes.

?

What exactly are you finding particularly dumb about their behavior and actions? I'm trying to understand where you are coming from here...

Prowl had no choice but to use the Cons. The situation in DoOP meant he could either do that or watch the Autobots be torn apart by rioting mobs of Nails.

Bumblebee killed Horribul not Prowl but the book makes his state of mind and situation entirely understandable.

Metalhawk is being a dick because he doesn't like the Bots at all and blames them for millions of years of exile and the destruction of their homeworld. Very justifiable reasons for being dickish to them (and he also seems to be trying to Politic himself into power.) same with the NAILs they have EVERY reason to hate the bots and cons and want both gone.

Everybody's really been quite decently motivated and in character that I can see.

Do you just not like political strife, conflict and intreague maybe? Cause that's kinda the point of this book.


-ZacWilliam, folks have made bad decisions here but always understandable and justified bad decisions I'd argue

-ZacWilliam, folks have made bad decisions here but always understandable and justified bad decisions I'd argue


No, I see what you're saying. I don't disagree, everyone's motivations make perfect sense as presented, and I am enjoying the book. It's mostly Prowl. He is just making the worst decisions possible. Starting from the beginning of the series. Okay we have a race of war machines whom we have just beaten in a war. What do we do with them? Put nano-bombs in their heads and inhibitor collars on them. Surely this will help them integrate better into society. Also, we will use them as a police force, because they are known for restraint and understanding, and it's not like we can ask the new arrivals if they would like to help or any of the soldiers we already have. Nd then, when some people want to leave, I will sabotage their spaceship...because.

And then the NAILs (we made a new term which these people find offensive, we know they find it offensive, but even our political leaders uuse it in conversation). I get that they hate both factions. But. The planet, their home, was dead. They left, for 6 million years. The Autobots "sort of saved" it. They have "Marvel Public" levels of ungratefulness going on. Their idea is "Well, Autobots, thanks for doing whatever it was that revitalized the planet. Now please hug off because this is our home even though we abandoned it for millions of years and you have been fighting a war the entire time." And all Metalhawk does is say "everything you're doing is wrong. I have no other options, just do not do what you are doing."

My first thought on seeing Barrel Roll with the Aerialbots was, "I'm going color blind! The Red Shirt looks green to me!"

Interesting seeing Fixit among the Autobots. Considering the company he's keeping, I wonder if it wasn't supposed to be First Aid instead. Still, he wasn't one of Jhiaxus's murderous Micromasters from Revelation, right? I think the Rescue Team were among the few who didn't appear.
