Well, if the merchant benefited from it there's no harm, I guess. Some people just aren't comfortable dealing with foreign currencies; although admittedly those usually aren't the types who'll go to a place like Estonia.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:51 PM)

I gather this was an ad hoc sale with no machine around. Or the U.S.-Americans in this story were so entitled they didn't bother getting any euros for their trip. One hears about the latter phenomenon often enough.

@  TM2-Megatron : (19 March 2019 - 05:46 PM)

Easier to just use a credit card with no foreign currency conversion fee. There are plenty to choose from in the US

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:40 PM)

Joke's on them because the USD-EUR exchange rate gave him a lot more.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 March 2019 - 05:39 PM)

Just read an anecdote on Facebook from an Estonian guy who once accepted U.S. dollars on par from some 'Mericans who didn't change their currency when traveling to another country.

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 March 2019 - 11:14 AM)

Try their TF/GIJoe comic. I dare you. (I'm sorry in advance.)

@  Fnu Aw : (19 March 2019 - 10:41 AM)

My first reaction reading Dreamwave was "What am I stupid or something?" It can be hard to follow what's happening at times.

@  Paladin : (19 March 2019 - 07:52 AM)

but enough about *INSERT LEAST FAVORITE WEBCOMIC HERE*

@  TheMightyMol... : (19 March 2019 - 06:15 AM)

He draws about as well as he runs a business.

@  Nevermore : (19 March 2019 - 06:01 AM)

But... but... it has artwork by Superstar Extraordinaire Paticus Funana Lee!

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:36 AM)

The second one,has a lot more interesting idea (A unified post war Cybertron, people viewing Optimus differently now the wars over), but in practice it's a disjointed mess.

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:34 AM)

I'd say the first volume is the most Meh Transformers comic I've ever read. Reading it I felt like I was skipping a bunch of pages.

@  Trpodeca : (19 March 2019 - 03:32 AM)

You know I've been reading Dreamwave's comics and its not very good.

@  lastmaximal : (18 March 2019 - 11:36 PM)

Tucker has to have his threads approved before they'll post now? That's hilarious.

Tucker, it is the same thread that you already posted. I am not approving that. As we have discussed you need to submit different content.

His views are "They're coming for us!"

@  unluckiness : (18 March 2019 - 12:59 AM)

I don't think even he knows his own views, frankly. What with blaming Spyro and having the Navy Seal copypasta in his so-called manifesto

@  Pennpenn : (17 March 2019 - 09:27 PM)

Even in the general population there are those who share his views. Probably a significant crossover with the ones who blame Muslims for what happened.

@  Pennpenn : (17 March 2019 - 09:25 PM)

It wouldn't surprise (but still disgust) me if there was a part of the prison population who condone or even celebrate his actions.

That works too. The burger example was just fresher in my mind from another site.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 March 2019 - 01:52 PM)

"Paddy" is short for "Patrick". But "Patty" is still short for "Patricia", right?

@  Kayla Kaon : (17 March 2019 - 01:38 PM)

Whooo! I can get some cheap corned beef now!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:55 PM)

While I have no ties to Ireland, South or North, I have been reassured by many Irish people of the proper rendition.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:54 PM)

Paddy is the diminutive of Pádraig. Patty belongs on a burger.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:53 PM)

PSA to all: the abbreviated name is Paddy's Day or Saint Paddy's Day.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:42 PM)

Another round of U.S.-Americans throwing around Disneyfied Irish symbolism for the sake of getting smashed.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 March 2019 - 11:41 PM)

Hooray, it is Lá Fhéile Pádraig / Saint Patrick's Day once again.

@  B-Fox : (16 March 2019 - 07:46 PM)

He doesn't actually have anything to do with Necro, though...

@  Pennpenn : (15 March 2019 - 01:59 AM)

I mean, to be fair Joe, Randy, and Alan are also actual transformer names, so yeah.

@  repowers : (14 March 2019 - 07:18 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (14 March 2019 - 07:17 PM)

@  wonko the sane? : (14 March 2019 - 07:17 PM)

Bumblebee! You, hound, and mitch go scout the decepticon base! Grimlock! You and Edward back them up. Prowl, stay here with Jessica and spike!

@  Paladin : (14 March 2019 - 06:52 PM)

is he related to Steve?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 March 2019 - 05:52 PM)

Holy crap, there's really a transformer named robert?

All the Power Rangers toys Hasbro revealed look fantastic. I'm going to be buying everything from the Lightning Collection, this toyline is almost everything I've dreamed about for a PR toyline since I was a kid. :)

Any Bulk and Skull 2 pack needs to have a device with a button that when pushed plays their music.

Half skimmed the thread and got excited for a Bulk & Skull two pack and then realized it was just speculation and now I'm sad again.

 

I mean, cool new PR toys.  But.  Still no Bulk & Skull.

I still feel like that arc could benefit from a cast list. I'm much less versed in Powere Rangers post TURBO AND I only know a handful of this cast thru osmosis. I don't even recall Zeo's Tanya.

...Just be aware that the Mighty Morphin cast is apparently coming back in #40, so the Beyond the Grid cast only gets 31-39 for their storyarc...for better or for worse.

 

Mind you, I wouldn't be surprised if they show back up in time for whatever's going to happen in #50 in a year's time, but still.

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.

Hasbro's stuff looks damn sharp.  Decent deco and articulation for the standard $10 price point, solid character range, good articulation, multiple accessories and GREAT sculpt work compared to Bandai's efforts (Look at that textures!).  Packaging is a bit busy, IMO, but I can easily see how Hasbro has likely standardized some of the packaging concepts for future series.

 

I mean, even the STANDARD line could stand against Bandai' collector offerings, and I'm curious to see the market response.  Plus major props for not only including the 3 core rangers at the outset, but also not one but TWO villains!

Certainly seems like this show's more willing to make its action look a bit more painful and (dare I say) violent, compared to the rather safe and friendly Neo-Saban type of action.
