Would the diner owner be the "Ice Cream Maker Guy" of the Happy Days line?

Nude shots with puppies deserves something...

An arrest warrant perhaps.  I dunno.

And yes, drowning midgets make me smile too...  It was a great episode.   :D

0, they do it willingly themselves from guilt?

J/k J/k J/K don't fight, don't fight!  No Blasters!  No Blasters!

Darth Kenobi,

I believe it was a Torpedoe plane if I'm not mistaken, but I may not be correct.  It's been a while I guess.

The Jet remark was funny though...  :)  Nice to see someone knows nothing of history.

Indeed, that's a cool photoshop Tydirium, and I agree that I like those cards better.

I just hope Hasbro has the common sense to repackage them at some point like that.

What I'd actually really like is for them to pre-pose the figures in the packaging to show off the kickass articulation too.  Show just how fun the figure can be, and I bet more kids would cry for those figures than others in the toy aisle.

The packaging from the VOTC isn't great to me, but I do love the OTC basic cardback with the unique backgrounds.  Sweet stuff.

Unfortunately for me, I was wanting to stock up on at least 2 Riekean's for the fodder the figure wuold yield, and to have a couple extra tactical boards.

I haven't seen an Ultra at my nearest Target though fr a while, so the second nearest and third are my only hopes really.  :(  One of them should have some extra Ultra laying about.

I didn't agree with this man's politics again, but Pappy Bush skydiving at 80's not too shabby.  Good for him.

Bush's plane was shot down in WW2, and they have footage of him being rescued in the Pacific.  He's no stranger to harrowing dives from the sky (controlled or otherwise).

There was some rumble (wishful thinking perhaps) they would make a 1:18 scale plane of his with a figure of him as a young man.  Even as a Democrat I'd pick that set up!

If Durge is to read this, for whatever reason (I don't believe he is banned here Josh...  Not yet anyway, unless Chris did so without mentioning it or it showing up on his name there), I figured I'd make a post so he doesn't feel so harshly treated.

Like Chris said, it was more brutal honesty than harshness.

I've watched Durge and GNT go back and forth at each other, and while a lot of people give you props for not "taking it" from GNT (which nobody should have to), they also don't respect the WAY either of you post.

I'm not saying myself here...  I was indifferent, and part of me liked seeing GNT get pissed off at, more or less, looking in a mirror.

But by that very statement, it's not a complement on your posting habits Durge.  Unfortunately you weren't there before GNT became a mod, if I'm correct, and it's your posting habits now that are the reason a LOT of people don't respect GNT in the first place.

He basically did (and often still does) the same things you were.  Reporting posts when it isn't his job to "police" people posting...  posting no matter when/where to seemingly just have one more post (quantity over quality for short).

Again, I ignored GNT's behavior as just the type of guy he was...  I only clashed with him when he clashed with me directly, which wasn't terribly often.  Others though, disliked GNT because he simply wasn't someone whose opinion really struck you as "great".  You didn't look forward to his latest reply.  It was filler most of the time.

You were becoming similar to a lot of people.  I know this only because I've heard the same rumblings arise towards you as towards GNT in his early days.

The rumblings towards GNT now are of a different nature...  They more directly annoy people than before.  They're worse, admittedly.

With that said...

I think it's laughable for Scum to ban Durge and not GNT.  Their decision, but when you ban one who acts one way, you're obligated to ban the other who baited or reacted right alongside the one you banned.  That would be GNT to me.

I'm not saying either should've been banned, but I hold to the fact GNT should be de-modded and they BOTH should be made settle down or face being kicked out.

It's just Durge at GNT's throat over there though.  That little feud worked the opposite direction every thread I ever saw.

It's important to stand by your staff, but it's more important to hire the right people in the first place I think.

Hey Beth,

Thanks again for offering your extra KotD figure to me for my brother, but a stroke of good luck tonight on a chance run to a Target yielded me a new KotD for him and one for myself as well.

Good stuff.

We're gonna take his broken one back to TRU whence it came now...  And he doesn't know it yet, but I opened his KotD for him already and loosened his hand up already.  He'll survive!

Thanks Beth for that offer, it was really appreciated!

The answers I seek for the nude/puppies photo are not answerable by his abysmal music video.

Further yet actually, the video only serves to raise more questions for me...

I liked Baywatch though...  Am I alone there?  The episode with the midget and the kid who was ashamed of his midget father, and then his midget father drowned...

That was AWESOME stuff!

Theoretically they could be re-releasing holo sidious like this, but that is just a thought...  I doubt that's what they'd do.

I REALLy hope the Saga Emp's not the figure they do the holo thing too.  That'd just not look right.  :(

Hmmm, the cardbacks are definitely neat anyway...  Even if I'm not getting half these figures because they're really not worth it to me.

Nonetheless, great cardbacks...  I almost wish the VOTC were on these cards (not only because of the $5 price variance) because I love the specific scenes each has.  Good stuff.

Hey Wai,

You get ahold of any of the VOTC figures yet?  THese are doozies that I've been waiting for here in the States and was wondering if you had a hands-on opinion of them you could give?

These are definitely shaping up to be my favs....

Rebelscum's better than a lot of places...  That much I can say for them, and they do have some good staff and good mods there, they're just not filled with them, and my #1 issue would be...

They don't handle ANY actual problems they have.

It's cool they hired GNT to "give him a try" but to say his work there is anything above unacceptable is to give him entirely too much credit/sympathy.  And this is coming from someone who doesn't actually despise him as a hypocrite...  I try giving the benefit of the doubt.

I just see him as NOT being good at his "job" as it were.  You can't be with his personality...  Same can be said for a lot of people deemed moderator at a TON of sites.  Some people don't have the right personality for it because it requires you to bite your tongue in public a LOT.  To me, moderators aren't people you hire based on their activity in a forum, but their quality of posts...  You gotta ask "how often does this guy cause friction or reply to friction?", and understandably (myself included) a lot of people get into debates/arguments at forums.  It's the nature of people.

That said, I still go to Scum...  I've always obeyed their rules (the few times I've been "reprimanded" by staff there were out of line IMO, and not by their best staff), and I enjoy parts of their forums...  They're nothing of what they were when I started at CSW though.  They're a shell of that level of quality by far.

I go to too of course, but it's not what CSW was.  That's sad too because I was really hoping it would be.  I used to not go to much at all because I had dial-up and their site loads slowly even on Cablenet for me...  Dial-up then was attrocious.

Good guys there though for the most part, and even disagreements are usually handled tactfully.  

Of course, this is my home and I've found it to have the most interesting activity and the most interesting people.  We don't have too many conflicts, and when we do the staff's able to talk about them openly to get a resolution to it.  God knows we've had that problem in the past (not recently, knock on wood).  

Scum's got good people at it though, for all its negative attention right now...  With a swift kick in the collective ass of their admin (no offense), it could be better, but I don't foresee this so I'm happily away from there as my SW "home" permanently.  Still fun to stop in, and like Virex said there's definitely some people there that need shaken up once in a while.  For every great member there there are 2 or 3 bad members that just have terrible opinions.

JD Sports Forum! / Re: NHL Offseason

Pittsburgh News:

Mario Lemieux's holding his annual Mario Lemieux Invitational Golf Outing (always star-studded) in Pittsburgh this week, and was speaking publicly about the Penguin's status here in Pittsburgh.

He's disappointed, obviously, because our financially strapped city is dragging their feet in every way possible abut the Penguins (who sport the oldest arena in the NHL) receiving a new arena.

Headlines and reports say that the Penguins aren't for sale YET, but that Lemieux said that without help (and the Pennsylvania Slot Machine legislation going through to help fund it) the likelihood of sale is there.  Without a new arena he just can't make the team marketable or guarantee they will last here.

In a sense, this isn't anything new but people were in a panic on the news channels this evening.  

It's disappointing to hear it uttered publicly, but it's nto the first time either.  Our city is financially in the toilet right now, which sucks, but they are still improving.  New stuff's going up routinely.

I think a new Arena's a good idea, and if they'd finally get the slots going we'd have an arena/gambling establishment in the city as well, which would undoubtebly generate revenue.  That seems to have lots of opponents though itself.

The fact the city backed the new stadiums (plural) for the Steelers and Pirates who no longer wished to share, I think it's simply disrespectful of the city to neglect our most recently successful sports team, the Penguins.

The Steelers will always be #1, but the Penguins will always be #1 to me, and should be #2 to the city.  Pirates have a nice stadium, but that's ALL they have, and they're not even known for "giving back" to the community like the Pens have.

I hope the state/city help get us a new arena for the Pens and that my favorite team (and the only one I support till they're out of the running ANY year) doesn't get sold off and leave the city.

It seems like the city's not even willing to discuss it sometimes, and they're telling Lemieux he's 100% on his own t get this stadium built.   ::)
