Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

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.

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

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.

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

(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.

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

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?

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.

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.

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.

There is absolutely nothing wrong with either of the previous two FF movies. I love them both. All they need to do is get Reed, Sue, and Ben to return, tweak the Thing effects to look better, and cast a new Johnny.

Seriously. We don't need a damn reboot.

You might not think so, but execs will until they get a film that makes back its budget at least 4-7 times over, which Rise of the Silver Surfer failed to do.

I'd argue that Doom was a terrible interpretation and the general tone and writting of the film rather missed the sense of exploration and pulp adventure that the FF has at its best.


-ZacWilliam, they weren't the worst superhero films I've seen. I would kinda like a Reed who came across as rather smarter and more focused. And an Invisible woman that did the same. Torch and Thing were fine but I doubt you'd get either back now.

Well after turning Galactus into a giant Cloud of doom it's their own fault. Admittedly a ginormous man in Purple and a tuning fork helmet wouldn't fly much in reality but they could of done much better.

But I'm with Magnus. The FF movies were decent enough as they are. I wouldn't mind Alba being replaced or Doom getting some one new. Replacing Johnny is a must now that Evans is now cemented as Cap But I'm cool with Chiklis as the Thing and Gruffudd as Reed still.

Doom I'll willingly give you. But he's a remarkable difficult character to get right both in terms of writing, acting, and especially looks. The actor would need to wear essentially an Iron Man suit covered in a costume to effectively pull it off. Not that I'm saying it's something I wouldn't happily want to see. icon-arcee.gif

I think one of the major things that ticked everyone off in Rise of the Silver Surfer was the whole Galactus thing. It tainted everyone's opinion of the whole film.

I didn't know anything about Galactus or much about the Silver Surfer before seeing the second Fantastic Four movie, and I still thought it was completely awful. Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis tried admirably, but the script, direction, effects, Thing suit, and Jessica Alba were all just terrible.

Definitely best rebooted, with the originals ignored. Shame it can't be by Marvel themselves.

Sue and Johnny Storm can both be black, why not? I do think it's stretching a bit more if they're of two different races and adopted or half-siblings or something. Keep it simple, and hueswap both or neither.

Maybe Donald Glover can be Johnny.

He is...and he isn't. I can't defend Rise of the Silver Surfer, but to me the first FF film worked because Doom wasn't Doctor Doom, ruler of Latveria and destroyer of all who opposed him. He was Victor Von Doom, businessman and philanthropist. In what is essentially the first outing of the character, the fact he came across as "off" is to be expected. Doctor Doom has had dang near 50 years of continuity building him up (and making him fall down...I'm looking at you Wearing the Skin of my Dead Ex Girlfriend Victor) - a film only having a two and a half hour run time isn't going to do him justice.

But taking it from the perspective of Victor Von Doom, who rules a Board Room and not a Country...I find his characterization acceptable. Also I'm probably one of the few people who actually really did enjoy his initial outfit. It retained that classic feel while being more in line with - again - what a businessman would wear.


I still fondly regard The Fantastic Four as one of the better Super Hero adaptations. The Rise of the Silver Surfer...I do not.

Rise of the Silver Surfer started off having a great doom, but once he was healed by the surfer's powers he was back to being not awesome again, which is a shame, because Doom running around with Surfer Powers should have been great.

In the first movie Doom's master plan was to shoot lightning around the city. In the second movie he just wanted to surf regardless of the dying planet.

No, Doom sucked in both.

In the beginning of rise when he was moping in his castle talking to himself? That could have been great things. And the surfing itself was fine, the ignoring of the dying planet; not so much.

But yeah, losing Doom to Fox is the worst part of them keeping the license. Now him and Tony will never time travel on the big screen together and that makes me sad. And no Dr. Strange crossover. And...

I like them all because they're talented actors who fit the roles. Aisha Tyler can do just about anything, and I want a bit of Geordi Laforge in my Reed Richards.

I'm actually going to be slightly disappointed if we don't get an all black FF.

Personally, I liked the casting for the original movie except for Sue. They cast a pair of tits instead of real talent. Johnny, Reed and Ben were all fine.

I don't agree because I don't feel those actors fit at all, regardless of skin color. mostly Burton. I love the man but I don't want Reed to be an older man. I LOVE the Ultimate comics for making him younger, current status notwithstanding. They are a family but it's also an action flick. Plus he's rather short and I've never seen him hit those sharp, disconnected tones Reed would have.

I just don't think any of those fit.
