Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

@  Nevermore : (12 December 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

Cheddar can do just about anything.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Moral imperative.

@  Nevermore : (07 December 2019 - 05:13 PM)

Wishful thinking, rumor or leak?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

Snapdragon for Earthrise.

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 December 2019 - 10:22 PM)

Still not the weirdest thing a Nic Cage character has done in a film

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 December 2019 - 04:00 PM)

Couldn't be worse than him pissing fire as Ghost Rider.

Rust, that is very insensitive of you. She may not be good but she's still an actress that needs work and clearly needs all of our support to fight back against all the naysayers. We must defend her virtue at all costs!

I can't stand Halle Berry. I'll just never get over what a diva she's been with the X-Men franchise. Off topic, but whatever.

Fox doesn't kill this movie for me at all. Neither of the first two Aprils were particularly good either. She magazine hot, not movie hot, but I'll get over it.

You guys are right. I'm totally a douchebag for disliking her as a performer and not wanting her to have a key role in a property I hold near and dear to me. I am SUCH a jackass for wanting an actress that I don't dislike on sight not only because of her piss poor acting "skills" but also because she is always treated like eye candy and I don't find her attractive at all.

I am SO terrible.

Actually, its not disliking her as a performer that I have an issue with. I don't think she's a good actress either.

Its the people who act like she's akin to a murderer or something for simply appearing in a movie. Lets face it, some people act as if armageddon is nigh because she gets cast in something, or acts as if she's a TERRIBLE PERSON. After a while that sort of hyperbole and anger becomes ridiculous.

And frankly, this move by Bay just does not come as a shock to me. At this point when his name appears upon an upcoming film, I just shake my head and move on.

Her involvement is a sign of Bay having too much control and making this into another Transformers which a lot of people are not excited about regardless of what the box office numbers say. TMNT has die hard fans that have been trying to ignore the script leaks and Bay nonsense and now it's hard to ignore that stuff and be positive anymore. She sucks and tossing her in there is a sign of how this film is going to be treated from top to bottom.

So yeah, fans have a right to be upset. Getting on their backs over it is just nonsense and I'm kinda tired of seeing this new trend of hating on the haters just because. No one has said anything overly offensive except that weird comment about cutting him open with a spoon... Other than that there is no reason to be pissy at the people that do not like this casting choice.

I'm less upset about Megan Fox possibly being in the Turtles movie than the fact that Michael Bay still draws breath a paycheck from utterly destroying everything that is decent about these 80s properties. Sorry for the melodrama, but I don't know if Transformers will ever recover from what he has done. He's Uwe Boll with a budget. I don't understand why he still gets work outside SyFy original movie territory.

I don't want TF to "recover" as the movies have been nothing but good as far as money and engineering and exposure are concerned. We wouldn't have half the product we have now if not for those movies.

That would be the only good thing to come from this franchise even though it seems to be doing pretty damn good on its own right now.

Pretty much, yeah.

The last time she got mentioned, the conversation took a turn I'm still trying to forget. If anything, saying what we've said has saved the thread at least 3-4 pages, before it would've gotten to this point anyways.

Now I'm wondering if this April is going to be a scientist, or a reporter. Or maybe she's the daughter of an astronaut who brought the turtles eggs back from space.

Yeah but no. No no no no no.
I remember that thread and it was gross and ridiculous. Nothing in this thread got that far and saying it's ok to jump on people for disliking her as an actress is perfectly ok because you're afraid some random people would say some gross stuff in the future is ridiculous. This isn't Minority Report. We aren't out to prevent future crimes or prosecute thought crimes.

I HATE MEGAN FOX!
I DON'T WANT HER IN ANY MOVIE I WANT TO SEE!


That is a perfectly ok thing to say and I can scream it from the hill tops if I want to regardless of some random garbage that has been posted in the past. And the only reason that thread is even being brought up now is because of your post.

You guys are being ridiculous. You you be so defensive if a crappy actor was named to play Casey Jones? I highly doubt it.
Just ridiculous...

Because you've never complained about anything in your life?

Seriously, the holier than thou attitude towards anyone that complains about anything gets old as hell. People WANT to enjoy a movie about a property they like. How is that hard to understand? People WANT to like it but are having a hard time doing so because they are unhappy with the choices being made.

This is the last I'm going to say on the subject. I don't know what has made my posts so seemingly incomprehensible of late, but its getting tiresome.

Getting upset is one thing. Fans have a right to be upset. I would think that after 9 damn years on this board it would be understood that I think people have a right to be upset when something they deeply want gets pissed all over and jived upon.

All I'm saying that there's a point at which the anger becomes ridiculous and overblown. And that is ALL I am saying.

If that makes me pissy, if that makes me a hater, so be it. I'm not going to go round-and-round about this with you, or anyone else. I'm hugging done.
