Wouldn't a blessing by Satan pretty much be a curse anyway?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 July 2017 - 06:01 PM)

isn't "Blessed by Satan" an oxymoron?

@  Dracula : (18 July 2017 - 05:11 PM)

basically the sunscreen has to be blessed by satan.

@  MEDdMI : (18 July 2017 - 05:07 PM)

That is a very 2017 attitude to have.

@  2017 : (18 July 2017 - 08:14 AM)

Um...no. Just call them by the gender they present as, please.

@  D.M : (18 July 2017 - 07:35 AM)

Let's please not try to stir up a flame war in the shoutbox, especially not over sensitive issues like gender.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:16 AM)

I think the only thing that upsets me about the change of Doctors is no more Michelle Gomez, she was magnificent in the role.

@  Rycochet : (18 July 2017 - 07:15 AM)

Where was this outrage when (the fantastic) Michelle Gomez took over the role of the Master?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

Why did that double post?

@  Pennpenn : (18 July 2017 - 04:29 AM)

From what I understand (which could be wrong, or right based on some things but not others) is that Gallifreyans are agender and just appear as/present as particular genders because reasons. Kinda like Transformers.

@  TheMightyMol... : (18 July 2017 - 01:55 AM)

Do people on the internet really need a reason to be mad?

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (17 July 2017 - 10:13 PM)

They need to make a season of the Doctor having two heads, one female and one Male -just- to anger people!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 July 2017 - 09:22 PM)

Would the Doctor count as "transgender" once #13 debuts? Cause the Doctor has literally gone from man to woman. But on the other hand, I haven't heard of real life trans people flipping back and forth. Or for that matter, regenerating like a Gallifreyan.

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2017 - 04:49 PM)

@Nevermore I'll have to check on that. I never bothered to delete my account, but I also didn't give it my full real name/info

Facebook is watching you pee.

@  Nevermore : (17 July 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Facebook still keeps up to date with you. Because of those privacy issues.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 July 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Surprisingly I don't get many Facebook game requests anymore.

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2017 - 04:38 PM)

Says the guy who's socializing on a live chat box.

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 July 2017 - 04:35 PM)

Social media sites like that are for people who like socializing. I'll stay in my cave.

@  MEDdMI : (17 July 2017 - 04:24 PM)

I used to Facebook years ago. Mostly I got annoyed by all the privacy issues and stupid updates of "Help water my farm!" or whatever.

Monday April 23rd - the Monday before BotCon - The Texas Rangers will be giving out Bot Shots toys to the first 10,00 children 13 and under. So if you like baseball and are heading to Dallas early, sounds like you might want to look into the game!

Little point in going unless you A> have at least one child, B> yourself or your children possess interest in baseball, C> don't mind the idea of spending at least $16 plus convenience fees to take in a game and get a Bot Shot if they haven't exhausted the supply by the time you scan in, and D> can stand to watch the Yankees if they're not playing against your favorite team.

(I'm sure the staff at the Ballpark are just as discerning as the staff at Miller Park, so don't attend by yourself, secure in the belief that you'll be able to talk 'em out of one.)

(That said, this is pretty damn cool. Not much guessing behind the 'why' of it necessary.)

I remember when Hasbro partnered with a different team to give away a free G. I. Joe figure (this guy, minus accessories) at a baseball game as a July 4th promo back in '04.

Cue the peace protestors whining and moaning about how this was going to promote violence and teach kids to be brutes.


Wonder who's going to get up in arms about this one.

It's a nice perk for parents, but I can't see anyone trying to go just for this unless it's an exclusive figure (if it's already mentioned it is, apologies for overlooking).

'And then I will steal their toys & watch them cry.'

Yeah, there is an inherit flaw in this plan. Maybe if you offer the kids a trade of a pair of new Bot shots, for the freebie. I just think some might be forgetting what the kids might think.

Heck, they might not even like baseball.

It's no guarantee, but they might let you take a Bot Shot if you claim it's for your kid. But that's something you can only find out afterwards.

Oh yeah, for the kids sake, they don't have to stick around for the entire game. Make an exit plan in advance, in case they really don't enjoy it.


And please ppl, don't consider adopting, just for the sake of toy collecting. That would be wrong.

(If you can't pick out the snark in this post, please be aware that its there. I'm not trying to come off preachy & am just joking. Still, read from a certain perspective, I suppose you could mistake it.)

I already had tickets to the game so the Transformer was a plus. No Bot Shots though they gave away Cyberverse Legion class figures with a Botcon ad.
