Which Lobo later claimed was because he was paid to take a dive. Yes, really.

@  TheMightyMol... : (04 August 2020 - 06:15 PM)

And then there's the times it's been decided by a fan vote, which is how we get things like Lobo (who can go toe-to-toe with Superman at full strength) losing to Wolverine.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

And then there are the "but my favorite characater will totes win because I say so" people.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:49 PM)

I mean, there are some people who really approach this from a somewhat reasonable standpoint, coming up with a plausible scenario and a setting that creates a fair environment that doesn't favor one character.

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:46 PM)

My favorite stupid "why would they even fight each other" question recently was about three versions of Optimus Prime (G1, Bayverse and Aligned).

@  Nevermore : (04 August 2020 - 05:45 PM)

Batman obviously can beat everyone. Even Galactus. He's Batman. He's so smart, he'll just throw a Batarang and hit the weak spot at Galactus's forehead, knocking him out instantaneously.

@  wonko the sane? : (04 August 2020 - 11:37 AM)

It's almost like all drama is just manufactured pissing contests to keep us all entertained and distracted. :p

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (04 August 2020 - 10:16 AM)

Or they could go White Ranger vs Scorpion route and have both win. ;P

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:35 AM)

Besides, we all know the answer is nearly always "they fight to a standstill and then team up against a common enemy."

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:29 AM)

The best way to prove this is to give an example where the match is really lopsided in favor of one character but in popularity they're either evenly matched or the weaker one is more popular.

@  ▲ndrusi : (04 August 2020 - 09:27 AM)

The "who would win in a fight" discussions are really just people trying to make "which one's better" into something you can theoretically measure objectively, usually in a very specific way they think they've predetermined their favorite will win.

@  Otaku : (04 August 2020 - 02:01 AM)

@Nevermore So... you're saying you didn't like DC Versus Marvel/Marvel Versus DC?

@  Steevy Maximus : (03 August 2020 - 06:59 PM)

So, what happened to Hasbro's Zoids relaunch? An English dub, some stuff in southeast Asia, and now a game coming in October? That it?

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 10:46 AM)

Tidal wave, cause shooting water gets you nowhere.

@  Darth Gonzo : (03 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Who would win Tidal Wave or Broadside?

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:17 AM)

Btw Happy birthday to those people in the box to the right \o/

@  -LittleAutob... : (03 August 2020 - 08:16 AM)

The bottom line is obvious. It makes no literal sense to fight someone on your faction. :/

@  wonko the sane? : (03 August 2020 - 06:14 AM)

That's because you're doing it wrong. You're supposed to just stack skills and ability against each other. It's not the palace of doom, it's an episode of american gladiators.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:32 AM)

The only obvious winners of such a fight would be the bad guys.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

And what does it even matter? They should work together, not stupidly fight each other for the mindless entertainment of idiot onlookers.

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:29 AM)

Why would two good guys fight each other? What are they fighting over?

@  Nevermore : (03 August 2020 - 04:28 AM)

I never understood these "who would win in a fight between two good guys" discussions. They make no sense to me.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 04:17 PM)

If G1 had continued we'd have had Starscream back in spirit - through Krunk, Snapdragons partner and possibly Skullcruncher unless he was mute.

@  Bass X0 : (02 August 2020 - 12:28 PM)

There are some decent impersonators in fandubs though.

@  -LittleAutob... : (02 August 2020 - 10:45 AM)

The only true Starscream voices are Steve Blum and Chris Latta, hands down.

@  Sabrblade : (02 August 2020 - 10:14 AM)

Why they didn't have Scott McNeil voicing that Starscream, when he was the one who had imitated Chris Latta when he voiced Cobra Commander in the DiC G.I. Joe cartoon, is beyond me.

@  wonko the sane? : (02 August 2020 - 09:57 AM)

Say what you will, that was an awesome scene.

@  Maximus Ambus : (02 August 2020 - 08:36 AM)

Beast Wars Starsream "I am AIR COMMANDER Starscream of the DECEPTICON BATTLEFLEET!"

@  Nevermore : (02 August 2020 - 07:02 AM)

I liked TF: Prime Starscream.

@  -LittleAutob... : (01 August 2020 - 08:36 PM)

Hearing Starscream's screechy voice in Cyberverse has to be the most annoying thing ever in Transformers. Even his G1 voice wasn't as bad. :doh

Ransack. That's like another 20 or so.

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 July 2020 - 06:18 PM)

"Prowl". There, that's at least fifteen.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Or do you want people to spam the Squawkbox with lists of 100 characters?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:15 PM)

Oky, just one question: If I were to say "Yes, I could", how could you be sure I'm not lying?

Wouldn't know. I'm forbidden from owning anything remotely resembling a turtle.

Aww, that sucks. Your dad forbidding it?

We have a red-eared slider turtle, she has a life expectancy of around 20yrs and (hopefully) won't get any bigger.

Dad. And mom. And in laws. And my grandad especially since he says he lost a fingertip to one as a child but since he worked at a lumber mill in his youth and the lack of turtles strong enough to do that endemically, i kinda doubt that story.

I mean i have my own place and all but it seems like an easy enough conflict to avoid and pets arent all that important so ill play along.

Probably depends on the turtle. Haven't gotten bit by mine in awhile, but last time she dented my fingernail a bit. Her bite's probably stronger now, but easy enough to avoid if you're careful.

I feel you on the family part. My side of the family are very conservative/religious, mom's a neat freak and it's just not worth the fight.

my old man has a similar rule about snakes.  he used to work in a christmas tree nursery and had to deal almost on a daily basis with timber rattlers and copperheads.  left him a bit traumatized.

Only reason i dont want snakes is the hassle of either live food or having to trick them into thinking the frozen food is alive

Im fine with bugs, crustaceans and worms. Iffy about fish since it seems like a bad idea either way given the conditions theyre kept in but also understand that some fish will not eat anything else. Dont want to keep or feed live mice at all not even getting into the ethics of it.

Passed by a fish shop to buy pleco wafers and found a female dwarf gourami mixed in with the males. Don't have any plans to breed the things but bought it anyway since they're incredibly rare for whatever reason.

She's a pretty girl. The male's roughly twice her size but only gets pushy during feeding thankfully. Dunno why they're not sold more often. Sure, the males have brilliant color patterns, but the sparkly silver scales are pretty nice in their own right and watching them use their feeler fins is adorable.

If you're keeping them alone, a 5 gallon will suffice as long as there are enough plants (real or fake they don't care) or rocks to hide in since they get spooked easily. If you're keeping more than one, you're gonna need a lot more room. Males need massive tanks if there's more than one and even then, aggression is going to be a near-constant thing since they're very territorial. A male with a female or two can be done in a twenty but needs lots of places to hide since the males still tend to be bullies and females are roughly half their size. It really depends on the temperament of the male. They're relatively chill with other fish unless they have long fins and bright colors. Guppies, endlers and paradise fish will be harassed. It's also worth mentioning dwarf gouramis and bettas hate each other for whatever reason and will kill each other on sight. If you want to keep a colony, honey gouramis are roughly the same size and far less aggressive. Not quite as colorful but still very pretty in their own right.

 

Had to rehome one of the males since he was getting picked on constantly. The female's pretty much ignored by the remaining male outside of feeding time when he chases her away from the pellets. I just drop some on both ends of the tank. 

Oooh, she is pretty. Any thoughts on a name?

Elsa.
