@  wonko the sane? : (15 October 2019 - 02:55 PM)

I got stabbed in the eyelid by a mudwasp, pulled down a tree, and then got ice cream. You know, all told: not a bad day.

@  Benbot : (15 October 2019 - 08:02 AM)

What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 06:10 PM)

Woot! Beast wars!

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 06:08 PM)

Yay! Tubi now has the first season of Rescue Bots and the full run of Beast Wars FINALLY available.

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 02:16 PM)

Just like me in a game of Civilization. Don't have gunpowder? Time for your cities to burn.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 01:51 PM)

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

@  Paladin : (14 October 2019 - 09:57 AM)

he landed by coincidence in front of long-term residents.

@  Sabrblade : (14 October 2019 - 09:55 AM)

He said the world was round-o! (He said the world was round-o!) He said it could be found-o! (He said it could be found-o!) That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo! (That hypothetical, calculated, son-of-a-gun, Columbo!)

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 09:22 AM)

In the year 1492, Columbus gave us the day off skoo

@  Noideaforaname : (14 October 2019 - 08:59 AM)

How often do people actually celebrate Columbus or the Pilgrims? Usually it just feels like celebrating the first break in the school year and a nice dinner with the family.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 08:29 AM)

You've got like two more weeks until the american thanksgiving. Canadian thanksgiving is literally a harvest festival.

@  CVReynolds : (14 October 2019 - 08:09 AM)

Hey, everyone. Come together to enjoy this national holiday made to celebrate a mass-murderer who never set foot in the USA. What fun!

@  Benbot : (14 October 2019 - 07:25 AM)

that's perfect!

@  Otaku : (07 October 2019 - 11:26 AM)

@Bass X0 Letting myself comment to say "That's a good one!" and ask "Would a megalodon be a good fit for Megatron?"

@  Benbot : (07 October 2019 - 07:59 AM)

Ohhh good one

@  Bass X0 : (07 October 2019 - 07:39 AM)

I now want a Decepticon shark called Megalotron.

@  TriBlurr : (06 October 2019 - 05:47 PM)

Gives them time to screw up the color of his hands. :p

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 October 2019 - 12:33 PM)

His bulk is too great to teleport across such distances.

@  Sabrblade : (06 October 2019 - 11:09 AM)

Cuz it'll take that long to mass produce.

@  Darth Gonzo : (06 October 2019 - 10:47 AM)

@  wonko the sane? : (06 October 2019 - 06:47 AM)

Shut up rattrap.

It's not. Ninja starts and then ends with the ep rangers in reverse. Then goes to season 18..

Turns out they do list it if you search alien Rangers but not just power rangers

I think the concept of being educated and being able to educate is something that more people need more of in their lives.

No, we don't all know everything but we should spread and share that what we do know.

If I'm consistently misspelling a word, I would want and expect people to correct me as should I imagine all decent people who know the value of good literacy.

Its just arrogant laziness to know you're spelling a word incorrectly and not correct yourself or ignore the advice when people do tell you how to spell a word correctly.

Garry in this case could be what was suggest before: the new Lt. Stone.

There's also a few other aspects about the series that were among the many firsts for Power Rangers: PRLR was the first series to have the Rangers all be young adults rather than teenagers. Gone were the high school settings and "kid" element that the Rangers had before. Now they were working class civil servants with jobs and careers, who functioned not as the fantasy-based team of superheroes that had come before, but instead served as a military force meant to serve and protect the general public.

Technically, Lost Galaxy had working adults first but I will say that half the PRLG team had the "but what do you actually do for a living?" problem. Also, the public identity aspect of PRLS leads to something interesting...

I meant that the whole team of Rangers were working adults. Leo was identified in the first episode of PRLG as a teenager and only had a job for one episode, with the rest of the season having him just doing whatever in his downtime.

First working adults series was Power Rangers Turbo. They all (except Justin, due to child labor laws) got jobs right after graduation.

Angel Grove High seemed to have nothing but teenagers in their 20s and 30s, so either every student got held back or something weirder went down in that school/town.

 

Maybe it's in the water they all drank. It made everyone passed Age 12 look older. :p

The timeline works if the show started with them as high school freshman...except for the fact that at least some of them could already drive in the first season, as shown by the "Rad Bug".

Also, if Angel Grove really is in California (I don't know if was ever explicitly stated in-canon), based on the driving age restrictions, there are some real issues.


Maybe Billy didn't graduate early after all....

We could handwave that by saying Billy (or whoever else drove it) didn't legally need a license to drive the RADBUG since it was Ranger equipment instead of an actual car after Billy modified it.

 

After all, the RADBUG spent more time being driven through the sky than on the streets anyway.

Not to mention it wasn't street legal in any sense of the word.. I'm sure the engine that could make it go from 0 to 2000 in 2.2 seconds was way against street regulations.

 

However Trini did drive when looking for her doll.
