@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (19 August 2018 - 08:40 PM)

I saw him on The Trek BBS some months before he hit the Allspark.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 05:47 PM)

He was considered an annoying pest even back then.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 05:47 PM)

I finally managed to dig up some of Jason Irelan's earliest posts, at the Alvaro Comicboards Transformers forum. Dating back to 2003.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 12:43 PM)

The best thing is that repeatedly buying the same cabinet means an increasing routine in assembling the things.

@  wonko the sane? : (19 August 2018 - 10:39 AM)

Welp, beats me. I got four shelves.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 08:38 AM)

Finally I can showcase my collection in an appropriate manner.

@  Nevermore : (19 August 2018 - 08:38 AM)

I bought thirteen display cabinets for my new apartment from Ikea.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 August 2018 - 03:58 PM)

And I just managed to clean out my bed drawers, so I can move on to the next step when I'm ready.

@  wonko the sane? : (18 August 2018 - 03:45 PM)

I doubt I set any records, but now my cat can't jump on my PC and hit the power button or reset button, so... improvement.

@  RichardT1977 : (18 August 2018 - 02:28 PM)

Back in St. Olaf they used to have IKEA building contests...

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Oh, and there's also a few percent extra wage for every overtime hour on top of that.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:19 AM)

Some people just work an hour extra every day and then request a day off when they have collected enough hours.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Come in on your day off? Work an hour extra on a normal working day? Counts. What you do with your overtime doesn't matter just as long as you worked overtime in the first place.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:18 AM)

Anything goes - filing a request for financial compensation for your overtime, getting them compensated by spare time either in full "stay at home" days or "go home early" days (always with permission by your superior), it doesn't matter. What matters is that you worked longer than your contract and your official shift plan require you on any given day.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:16 AM)

Now the important thing here is that overtime is clocked daily, so if you work an hour extra (all overtime prior to the Christmas peak season is voluntary) and then immediately work an hour less on the following day (assuming you got your superior's permission), you may have a net zero on your overtime account but still scored one hour for the premium regardless.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:14 AM)

In other news, I unlocked an achievement at work: There is an agreement between the works council and the employer which states that anyone who works 55 overtime hours this year between January and the end of September gets a premium in October.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:12 AM)

Of course, the idiots keep bringing up the fact that DC used it "first", despite us telling them over and over again that who was "first" is completely irrelevant in trademarks.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 06:10 AM)

Actually they just settled.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (18 August 2018 - 05:03 AM)

Sounds like Hasbro should win it easily.. They'be been using it constantly for years, so even if DC did have it, they haven't been using and defending their trademark.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Well, haven't in a long time, that is.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

And there haven't been any toys based on DC's Teen Titans Bumblebee character until recently.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

Because Hasbro is selling toys.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:54 AM)

The trademark dispute was specifically about toys.

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:50 AM)

Thought to be fair I didn't even know Hasbro and DC were having a trademark dispute. I thought that was something that would have been settled years ago (and DC wouldn't be doing much with their Bumblebee at the moment given Marvel's using Wasp at the moment)

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:37 AM)

It sounds like the kind of person isn't going to be deflected by petty concerns like "reason" or "facts".

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 04:18 AM)

I told him repeatedly that the insects are completely irrelevant because THEY ARE NOT IN THE BUSINESS OF SELLING TOYS (or ANY business at all, for that matter).

@  Pennpenn : (18 August 2018 - 04:08 AM)

Even if he meant that the word "bumblebee" has been used to describe a particular type of insect (which is a much more coherent statement) it's still wrong.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 03:40 AM)

Claiming that Hasbro's trademark has always been for "Autobot Bumblebee" (a quick look at any toy packaging in the past 12 years proves this wrong), Apple the computer company has never held a trademark for "Apple", only for "Apple Computers" (the USPTO database proves this wrong), you cannot trademark common words (the USPTO database proves this wrong), the insects have been using the name "Bumblebee" for thousands of years (insects don't speak English), and ARGHHHH.

@  Nevermore : (18 August 2018 - 03:38 AM)

Jesus, there's this moron at TFW2005 who has a history of exceptionally outrageous bulls*** claims who is making all sorts of provably false statements in the thread about the Hasbro/DC "Bumblebee" trademark dispute.

@  wonko the sane? : (16 August 2018 - 06:36 AM)

That never goes away. I still have little panic attacks when I see water where it's not supposed to be. I've lived through enough leaking roofs, broken pipes and floods to know it could be a very bad sign.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (15 August 2018 - 09:20 PM)

Despite my parents explaining that to me when I was a kid, I still half-panic every time I see condensation dripping.

@  Shrug : (15 August 2018 - 08:23 PM)

Yup. If the water happens to be on the left or right of the vehicle, make sure to remember that. That way it's real easy to tell if it's something else dripping.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:15 PM)

So I checked online and it appears... it's totally normal, that's apparently condensed water from the air conditioning.

@  Nevermore : (15 August 2018 - 05:14 PM)

Phew!" For a moment I thought I was in real trouble because when I arrived at home and drove my car into the garage, there was a trail of large wet spots.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 August 2018 - 08:01 AM)

The showerhead exploded off the pipe this morning. So yeah... think it's going to be a "great" day.

@  Donocropolis : (13 August 2018 - 09:44 PM)

Luckily, it was "Wheel Horse Lawnmower"

Let's get it going with a huge casting rumor:

http://m.ign.com/art...r-strange-movie

 

Depp? Yep, I'm down for that. He's a great actor that has more range than he's shown lately. Plus he has a great relationship with Disney so I can see this happening.

I can get behind Depp as Steven Strange.

 

Oddly enough my first thought to this would be "Will it be anywhere close to how awesome the animated movie was?"

 

Seriously, the Strange animated feature is the only Marvel animated offering I've actually really enjoyed.

So does Dr Strange have the same issue as Iron Fist? or is his origin more acceptable because magic is in so many cultures?

 

My main exposure to him is the previously mentioned animated movie and his few appearances in other media.

I know he gets a lot of crap & makes several questionable choices but Johnny Depp is an amazing actor. Seriously, go watch "Ed Wood," "Public Enemies" or "Fear & Loathing In Las Vegas." I think he'd be excellent in the part of Dr. Strange. 

 

and since they're pretty much joined at the hip, why not get Tim Burton to direct? His visual styles would bring another new perspective to the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

You mean the Great White Savior thing? No, that's not what Doctor Strange is by any stretch. He's just really damn good at what he does.

No thanks. His visual style is not something I'd want to deal with and his story telling is not something I care to deal with any time soon.

Depp could obviously do a great job, but it's hard to be certain that he would. But boy, it would sell tickets.

 

I too loved the animated movie, and most of the recent minis and origin retellings. Really hard to make the character work in a long-term capacity though unfortunately. But a good movie, followed by (and/or preceded by) an Avengers-related appearance or two, would do wonders for the character and I think he deserves it.

I hope the costume ends up as flamboyant and ridiculous as they can get away with.

If Thor can keep his cape why can't Strange?

This is probably BS given that A. It's originally from Latino-Review, who have a habit of making jive up and B. The movie hasn't even been announced yet and is at LEAST two years off (if not more.) there's no way they're talking about casting this deeply yet.  As an example, Ant-Man comes out summer of next year and they only started casting a little while ago.

 

But as for the rumor; Depp isn't who I would have picked, but Marvel's casting has been amazing, so I have faith in them.

With rumors swirling that they are planning to make Doc Strange the new Iron Man in that he would be the personality that draws everyone in and becomes the center of the the MCU for the audience in Phase 3, when considering all that casting this far out makes perfect sense and castng Depp makes even more sense.

 

Which, granted, makes it an easy guess for Latino Review. Because they suck. But it's not out of the realm of the possible.

Dr. Strange as the center of Phase 3? What's this, forming the Defenders? Not going to be as big as Avengers.

They'll have to revise his look since he looks strikingly like RDJ Iron Man, especially in the animated movie. What if they take the Midnight Sons version? Haha.

The Defenders are on NetFlix. Doc Strange will be joining the Avengers. That's the name that sells on film after all.
Besides he was an Avenger.
