@  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.

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

Now I wonder how many Transformers we can name with the fewest possible different names.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:38 PM)

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?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:08 PM)

i don't go into people's threads that have no relevance to my interests just to be an ass by telling them that their comments and opinions are of no value just because they have no personal interest to me.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

i think one of us is misunderstanding what the squawkbox is actually for.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:06 PM)

and what is wrong with that? you respond to me to lessen your own boredom.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

I'm asking people if they think they could.

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:05 PM)

Or did you just think of another random question to lessen your boredom?

@  Nevermore : (30 July 2020 - 06:04 PM)

Is this a survey?

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 05:50 PM)

Could you name 100 different Transformers without using the same name more than once, completely from memory?

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 04:12 PM)

It's on Netflix, if you're playing the app off the TV just use search to find it. I thought it had been delayed but found it with the search option.

@  Bass X0 : (30 July 2020 - 04:09 PM)

Is WFC in the UK yet?

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 03:23 PM)

I sped the WFC trailers up on Youtube (1.25) and it actually helps.

@  Maximus Ambus : (30 July 2020 - 02:40 AM)

Never occured to me the Headmaster juniors were kids because their head toys were smaller then the engine Godmasters.

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 July 2020 - 03:54 PM)

Misery loves company. Now it's just easier to find.

@  Telly : (29 July 2020 - 02:31 PM)

"becoming" obvious? its been obvious for years and years. its just more noticeable now thanks to social media

@  wonko the sane? : (29 July 2020 - 01:51 PM)

It's becoming readily obvious that there's a lot of people in the world whom are fundamentally unhappy and intent on making as many people as possible just like them.

@  repowers : (29 July 2020 - 07:46 AM)

Turns out he wants you to have an UNhappy day! HAHAHA! Such villainy!

@  TheMightyMol... : (29 July 2020 - 04:56 AM)

Questioning them just makes them shout the same thing but louder until any reasonable person walks away in disgust. Then they claim that they won. There's nothing to analyze, it's just bullying.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

Especially since the words by our chancelor he was referring to ("I wish you a happy...") are pretty common.

@  Nevermore : (29 July 2020 - 04:26 AM)

That "subliminal reverse speech" thing is particularly baffling. Does that mean anyone repeating those exact same words is inserting the same reverse speech by default? Or how does that work?

We're buying a house

We're buying a house!! In New Brunswick.

 

I've been renting apartments for 12 years, and the military gave me places to live for years before that.  I'm weirded out at the prospect of having a whole house, and having to look after a laneway and yard.  I can't wait to have space to have all my Transformers out and on display at the same time!!

 

We're flying out in two weeks to look at places, and I'm kind of wigging out.

Any house-buying stories to share?

Congrats... but as to stories... no.

 

I do have advice though:

Try and find 'the right sized yard'  lol one that won't get to tedious to mow and weed, and still be big enough for yard fun :D

as somebody with more yard than house... >_> I'm almost to the point of building a pool and gazebo just to loose some grass

 

:D

 

again Big congrats on the home to be.

I want a garden.  But I might scare my neighbours.  Hell I might scare Dylan.  My dad's garden is easily twelve times the size of the garage, so my idea of how big a garden should be is kind of skewed.  I need to remember I won't have a full size tractor when it comes time to plough the thing.

 

...This whole move is going to be interesting.  

 

I could be happy with a cabin as long as it's got a good roof, solid foundation and reliable hot water.  Dylan is, let's say a bit more concerned with "style"

Congrats stormy!

 

Please keep in mind that a house can be a SURPRISING amount of labour... confined to several small, desperate and horrid periods instead of spread out evenly.

 

GET AN INSPECTION! Get a trusted, reliable inspector who will actually do the job instead of just glossing it over for the paycheque. You don't want to get screwed on crappy reno's and house faults.

 

Let's see... what else...

 

I got nothing else right now: but congrats stormy! It can be entirely awesome to have your own little spot under the sun.

Preventative maintenance!  Taking care of a little problem at your leisure is WAY preferable to taking care of a big problem the moment it happens (which it will undoubtedly do without regard for your schedule or other obligations).

 

But home ownership is awesome.  Point at any place in the house - that right there?  That's yours.  You own it.  It's pretty great that there is literally nobody o tell you not to do something.

 

Congrats!


ALERT: Everything is fine.

As others have said, get an inspection.

 

Also, if the house has good wiring, that is a major plus.

This seems to be Dylan's primary function, actually.

 

"No, you can't keep Transformers in the bathroom."

"No, you can't paint the front porch purple."

"No, we shouldn't paint a giant mural of Vikings playing guitars in the living room."

"No, not even if the guitars are on fire."

Hey, what you CAN do is paint the mural on the wall, just well off the floor, then border it in with some molding so it looks like a painting...

Avoid home owner alliances and stratas like the plague. Sure it may seem cheap, but they really restrict what you do with your house.
