Or is the wound the Earth healing.

@  unluckiness : (18 January 2021 - 03:32 AM)

Healing is just destroying the wound

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 06:08 PM)

But eventually destroys everything.

@  tigerhawk : (17 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Heals many wounds

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 January 2021 - 02:03 PM)

Time.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 January 2021 - 07:53 AM)

I dunno, maybe. I'm not clairvoyant either...

@  Nevermore : (17 January 2021 - 04:30 AM)

Covid?

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 09:50 PM)

At this point, if I'm going to die then it won't be the wait what killed me. It didn't help any, mind you, but it's not what got me.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (16 January 2021 - 09:37 PM)

Technically we are all literally dying to play with our next figure.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 05:36 PM)

I am figuratively dying to play with that cheetor.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 January 2021 - 04:39 PM)

Still waiting for my box from BBTS to arrive.

@  tigerhawk : (16 January 2021 - 04:29 PM)

Kingdoms is fantabulous and it's only the first wave.

@  tigerhawk : (12 January 2021 - 12:10 PM)

My Super Collection Megatron always had two left legs and I just discovered my Thrilling 30 Crosscut has two right hips.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:56 PM)

Fortunately, it's only Netflix Hound, so not really much of a loss here.

@  Nevermore : (11 January 2021 - 07:55 PM)

So it's been a while since I've had a misassembled Transformers toy.

@  Echowarrior : (11 January 2021 - 10:02 AM)

More Micromasters would be welcome.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 January 2021 - 06:15 AM)

Instructions unclear, have more sports cars.

@  tigerhawk : (11 January 2021 - 01:57 AM)

Or they could make the other Micromasters of the teams they half assed.

@  ▲ndrusi : (10 January 2021 - 11:20 PM)

There should be a box set of eight Stakeouts.

@  Bass X0 : (10 January 2021 - 08:27 PM)

There should be a box-set of Thrust, Dirge and Ramjet. But I'm not expecting it.

@  Nevermore : (10 January 2021 - 07:51 PM)

I hope there are re-releases this year!

@  tigerhawk : (10 January 2021 - 03:59 PM)

I hope there's rereleases of Earthrise Ramjet, Dirge and Ratchet next year.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 January 2021 - 07:51 AM)

Oh no, he was loved. I'd argue he could have had a better life physically, but he was loved. Deeply.

@  Telly : (08 January 2021 - 01:42 AM)

as long s/he gave love and was loved, it was a good life

@  Echowarrior : (07 January 2021 - 11:10 PM)

Poor puppy. Poor kid.

@  CORVUS : (07 January 2021 - 03:04 PM)

My condolences :(

@  wonko the sane? : (07 January 2021 - 10:45 AM)

So: My sisters dog just had a heart attack and died... while her 12 year old son was walking him. Welcome to 2021 everybody!

@  Dekafox : (04 January 2021 - 07:24 PM)

Except they're Deceptican'ts usually.

@  Devcon : (04 January 2021 - 05:17 PM)

Depending on which dub: Either Decepticons or Decepticans.

@  Bass X0 : (04 January 2021 - 05:03 PM)

Deception is the French word for disappointment. What does that make the Decepticons in France?

@  Echowarrior : (03 January 2021 - 11:29 PM)

We're just tiny little specks, about the size of Mickey Rooney.

@  TheMightyMol... : (03 January 2021 - 04:33 PM)

It's a great big universe, and we're all really puny.

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

That's orbiting at nineteen miles a second, so it's reckoned, a sun that is the source of all our power

@  Rycochet : (03 January 2021 - 01:30 PM)

Just remember that you're standing on a planet that's evolving and revolving at nine hundred miles an hour.

@  TM2-Megatron : (02 January 2021 - 11:57 PM)

relative to the speed that it's swirling around the centre of the galaxy, its rotation is fairly slow

@  PlutoniumBoss : (02 January 2021 - 09:31 PM)

I'd like to make myself believe that planet Earth turns slowly.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 January 2021 - 07:21 PM)

The Earth moving gave us 2021.

@  ▲ndrusi : (02 January 2021 - 10:50 AM)

It does that.

@  tigerhawk : (02 January 2021 - 10:11 AM)

I think the Earth is moving.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:35 AM)

Sunday evenings are awesome. Looking at the clock at 8 PM and thinking "I still have plenty of time before going to bed..."

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:33 AM)

Now I've been working permanent late shift for almost three years. Don't regret it one bit. One of the rare cases where the needs of the company overlap with my own preferences.

@  Nevermore : (02 January 2021 - 06:32 AM)

Before the permanent late shift was introduced three years ago (which I volunteered for as soon as the form became available), I always tended to plan my vacation for early shift weeks. Since the majority of the people in most departments prefer to work early shift and thus tended to plan their vacation for late shift weeks, there were usually enough slots available for me to get my request fulfilled.

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:26 PM)

I was promoted last December, so this past year is my first with the company where I've been able to get whatever vacation I wanted. Instead of competing with 100 other people, there's now only 1 (out of 3 others who share my job) that's been in the building longer than me, and so has first dibs at weeks. It's pretty easy to work it out between ourselves before we give in our requests, though

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:24 PM)

But there's also departments to consider, since we have a varieity of types of machines and not everyone is qualified to run everything. Altogether, there are a lot of ways you can get screwed

@  TM2-Megatron : (01 January 2021 - 05:21 PM)

So a few of the same rules, a few different ones. For regular employees, requests need to be in by January 15th. If they are, those are doled out based on seniority. You're only guaranteed 2 weeks in "prime time" (basically June, July, August). Anything submitted after January 15th is given out first come, first served based on availability

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (01 January 2021 - 02:39 PM)

So who said "Jumanji!"?

@  TheMightyMol... : (01 January 2021 - 08:20 AM)

I knew a woman at Target who was forced to use up her vacation time before she could qualify for maternity leave. Then they denied the leave because she technically hadn't been at work for two weeks beforehand.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:21 AM)

Also, if you become sick during your vacation and you turn in a doctor's sick note, it means that you don't lose your vacation days, because according to the law, vacation is intended for recreation, not for recovery from sickness or injury.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 04:00 AM)

Another priority is "vacation request for the next year turned in before the deadline". Like, you missed the deadline, you have to make do with what's left.

@  Nevermore : (01 January 2021 - 03:59 AM)

No, they prioritize vacation during school holidays for employees with school-age children. Also, only three of the six weeks during the summer holidays per employee so a larger number of employees can get their requests fulfilled.

In a desperate attempt to get you guys to talk about anything the hug else...

 

http://www.slashfilm...fantastic-four/

 

 

Josh Trank‘s Fantastic Four reboot has got to be the most mysterious of all the big 2015 releases. Even with a film as secret as Star Wars Episode VII we hear rumblings. Trank’s film, however, which is likely a major part of Fox’s Marvel plans, has a release date and little announced beyond that. Rumors have flown about actors such as Miles Teller, Michael B. Jordan and Allison Williams being up for Mr. Fantastic, Johnny and Sue Storm respectively, but none are confirmed. Now the biggest member of the team can join the rumor mill, too.

Movies.com reports Josh Gad is the number-one choice for the role of Ben Grimm, aka The Thing.

According to Movies.com, this rumor “comes from within casting circles close to the film.” Nothing is official, but they point out that Gad is age-appropriate in relation to the other actors who have been mentioned for the rest of the team.

 

Here’s what we do know about Josh Trank’s film. It’s scheduled for release June 19, 2015 and has Simon Kinberg and Matthew Vaughn on board as producers. The former also did a pass on Jeremy Slater’s script, as did a few others. Actors are testing in the near future with filming to take place in Louisiana. Kinberg also plans to tie it in with Fox’s X-Men universe in some way, but that’s unconfirmed.

Coming off the huge success of Frozen, Gad will next appear in Wish I Was Here, will be playing Sam Kinison and is writing a Gilligan’s Island movie among other things. With a schedule that busy, who knows if the actor could even fit a film this huge into his schedule. I’d imagine not. That doesn’t mean he wasn’t asked or mentioned though. He’s probably a first choice that can’t make it work. We’ll have to wait and see.

With a June 2015 release date planned, production on the film will be starting very soon, which means official casting announcements could happen any day now. I think Gad is a fantastic choice to play Grimm, if it works out. What do you think?

I follow the writer on Twitter...

 

No idea if it's true or not, but I kinda like the Josh Gad casting rumor!

— Slater (@jerslater) January 28, 2014

 

Anyway. Ben's my favorite character I've ever written. Gad is awesome and would kill it. Hope it's true.

— Slater (@jerslater) January 28, 2014

And *any* actor you cast is going to have his voice digitally lowered and modulated to match the character. So why not go for pure talent?

— Slater (@jerslater) January 28, 2014

My argument has always been that Ben is the closest thing Marvel has to a Pixar character. You need an expressive, lovable voice.

Fox is using bots to scour the Web for info leaks. We got hit for that and the synopsis for the opening of DoFP as well.

'Fantastic Four' Casting: Actors Tested, Lady-Doom Being Considered

 

 

It's also being reported that Dr. Doom will be the main villain, and that, perhaps in the hope of finding someone who truly understands the particulars of their body, the studio is considering switching to a female Doctor. No specific actresses are yet being named, but apparently they want a "big name" for their antagonist and "isn't ruling out switching genders for the role." Fox truly is the colorblind pansexual of superhero rebooters.

 

 

There's some other casting talk at the linked article.

 

But yeah, Lady Doom.

So I imagine the armour will now have a boob-window, and those stupid things that seem to happen when female characters get their own version of a male armour that for them is fully covered?

 

Name's dead easy. Victoria. Or just go with Valeria, as I doubt she'll ever be appearing anyway.

Cease and desist could also be "this fake script is giving the movie a bad name, quit talking about it, it ain't real"

 

No way of knowing until more info about the movie comes out, of course.

 

Also, I forget if it was mentioned here, but Trank denied the female Doom rumor.

The content of that C&D was absurd anyway.. they were claiming copyright over 'purported plot summary'. The original plot summary originated on a casting call page submitted by Fox -- which, that said it probably is fake or intentionally misleading.

 

But who am I to oppose the angry Fox Anti Piracy Robots!?
