What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 November 2019 - 07:12 PM)

I didn't find the designs in the '07 movie to be that bad, personally. What got really offputting was how Cybertronians in general become such huge a-holes in the later films; the designs were very much secondary to their horrible personalities

@  Sabrblade : (12 November 2019 - 06:59 PM)

And yet, Transformers still broke the bank at the box office, opened up the brand to a whole new generation of fans, shot the brand up to mainstream appeal, and enabled all kinds of new collector-oriented lines and other avenues to come about. Not saying Sonic's movie will do the same for his series, but the 2007 TF movie certainly did more good than harm.

@  Bass X0 : (12 November 2019 - 06:09 PM)

Paramount changed Sonic due to fan backlash but refused to redo Transformers 2007 with new cgi appearances based on their classic forms everyone’s knows and loves, and can relate to. Trailer 1 Sonic is as appealing a design as 2007 Bumblebee...

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 02:14 PM)

I don't. They're a pain in the ass to repair.

@  Benbot : (12 November 2019 - 12:48 PM)

I wish car companies would bring back flip up headlights

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 November 2019 - 09:07 AM)

Wear a hazmat suit. It's Walmart, they're used to weird.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 November 2019 - 07:54 AM)

2 inches of snow on the side of the house, 2 feet of snow on the deck. I hate this winter already.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (11 November 2019 - 11:33 PM)

But that requires actually going IN walmart. ;P

@  Liege : (11 November 2019 - 11:22 PM)

Pro tip for anyone hunting the for the Walmart 35th exclusives: try the seasonal aisles rather than the toy section. I found the display with all the exclusives and a bunch of the reflector wave practically untouched amongst those novelty arcade machines and a bunch of frozen merch.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:45 PM)

Although that does spark an idea for me. In a new continuity, Censere the Necrobot could be the herald Cityspeaker for Quintessa the Necrotitan just to play on their monikers utilizing Greek for dead, nekrós.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (11 November 2019 - 09:26 PM)

I hate to burst your bubble, Maximus Ambus, but 90% of things said in IDW turned out to be amnesiac half-rememberings courtesy of Adaptus or outright lies courtesy of Shockwave.

@  Jenny : (11 November 2019 - 08:54 AM)

The toy's designed to look like Wipe-Out, anyway.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 08:14 AM)

Didn't they try to retcon that into a figure of speech because that connection went against everybody else's long-term plans?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 November 2019 - 03:53 AM)

There's still some connection given Trypticon was created by Mortilus.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (11 November 2019 - 12:12 AM)

Yeah that toy doesn't exactly look like Necrobot.

@  Sabrblade : (10 November 2019 - 08:24 PM)

But.... it's just "Necro" not "Necrobot".

@  TheMightyMol... : (10 November 2019 - 05:10 PM)

But why does the God of Death need a giant space kaiju? Wait, never mind, answered my own question.

@  Maximus Ambus : (10 November 2019 - 02:15 PM)

Yowza I just realised Titans Trypticon comes with Necro AKA Censere AKA Mortilus.

@  Nevermore : (10 November 2019 - 01:15 PM)

I... think the best equivalent would actually be the British "There is room for improvement".

So the roster for Battle for the Grid has been released, and to say its underwhelming is an understatement:
 
https://twitter.com/...043427510001665
 
We got: Jason (MMPR  Red), Gia (SMF Yellow), Goldar, Mike (Magna Defender), Nobody (Black Ranger Sentry), JJ (SPD Green), Tommy(Zeo 5), Rita, Tommy (MMPR Green), Tommy (Lord Drakkon), Kim (Ranger Slayer), Kat (SPD White), Tommy (DT Black), Tommy (MMPR White), and Zedd

My guess is that everything created specifically for that show would be fair game, but there could be a problem if they tried to use anything from Kamen Rider. That said, I love that they kept that part of Alpha's origin intact, and remembered Tower Formation on top of that.

Don't forget that the Boom! comics aren't quite the same universe as the show. A similar universe, but still its own thing.

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.

Apparently the weaknesses are a go-buster thing, so yeah not gonna be the last we see of them. But I do feel like Devon's dog weakness will get old really fast.

The weaknesses are a little silly, and I'm not sure how Blue and Yellow's didn't show up in laboratory testing, but whatever.

 

I like that Ben and Betty got a heroic moment early in the series, so this paramilitary organization doesn't look like total idiots for keeping them around.

 

I also like that the Blaze and Roxy avatars wear evil versions of their training suits.

 

Those dicks left the rabbit-bot out of their group hug and deserved to get shocked.

Actually found the use of the Comedy duo actually useful this episode. It would be great if they continue to be able to inadvertently help or be involved in the fights as the series rolls on. Having them only in the base most of the time would be limiting and the classic B&S duo has set the bar for those types of characters to have their own growth in the series.

But that account never posts anything real.

 

https://www.facebook...ttleforthegrid/

 

Confirmed: Jason Scott (MMPR Red), Lord Drakkon, Tommy Oliver (MMPR Green), Gia Moran (SMF Yellow), Goldar, Kim Hart (Ranger Slayer), Kat  Manx (SPD White), Black Ranger Sentry.

 

I thought I also seen a post on Facebook about Magna Defender being announced, but can't find it now.

 

 

That's not the entire starting roster. I believe it's confirmed to be 15 at launch with 3 added per season/dlc pack. 

 

And yeah, Magna Defender was announced via the mobile game, accidentally, when he was listed as one of the starting roster characters for a crossover event they're promoting.

Becuase the weaknesses aren't natural. They're becuase part of the Evox virus is in them.

While the look and style are similar to that of SPD, the tone and feel so far are more akin to Ninja Storm.

 

Though, was anyone else slightly surprised by the lack of the "Power Rangers" part of the title in the episode recap's "Previously on Beast Morphers..." narration?

Starting to get concerned the 9 revealed characters MAY be the entire starting roster. Hope I'm wrong, and I'm still getting it since the gameplay looks great, but that would be disappointing.

 

Maybe they'll be unlock able characters, I don't know. I can hope.

I don't like the idea of the Zord attacks.  Seeing an tiny bit of the Zord coming in the fill the screen is sorta funny to see once, but it just doesn't feel right to me.

 

How I'd like to get the Zords in:  Add another level to the super meter, or have another meter that fills up slower.  When that gets maxed out, evil characters can grow to giant size, and good characters can call their Zords.  But you can't call your Zord before the monster grows (what would Zordon think?), so if you're not ready, you might have to dodge some giant monster feet until your meter is full.  (I know balancing the gameplay at two different scales would likely be a nightmare, but this feels closer to the actual Ranger experience.)

Thanks, but that site's players aren't working for me anymore, and it's setting off Trojan warnings as well. I shudder to think what would happen if I turned off my ad blocker.

Fortunately, I found another site -- it was just behind by a week or so.

That said, I was hoping they were airing it here. Guess not.

What gets me is that we have Nick now, but it's not airing on there, unless the third ep isn't this weekend.
