    Covid-19 Megathread

    I saw this post recently: You report Northern Ireland not having any deaths recently, Wales appears not to have had any on that day (https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.walesonline.co.uk/news/health/wales-records-no-new-coronavirus-18675560.amp), and Nicola Sturgeon reported that there were none for Scotland (https://www.gov.scot/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-update-first-ministers-speech-28-july-2020/), so the image seems plausible.
  2. There seemed to be something familar about a heavyweight boxing champion who turned up in an episode of Murdoch Mysteries. And then I realised and struggled to parse how such a small wrestler is a relatively large person when compared to normal folk:

    Covid-19 Megathread

    My best friend of nearly 40 years was complaining online about this "socialist" government taking away his "right to karaoke". We see each other probably twice a year. Since the referendum on leaving the EU, even that has often seemed perhaps a bit too frequent.

    Ah, but it doesn't matter, though: they're mouth-breathers.
  5. I read issue 0 when it came out and really enjoyed it. I'm a bit of a weirdo like that. (I don't watch films but am one of those oddballs who enjoys the Star Wars prequels because I like knowing what the end result is via the original films and seeing how the producers fill out the backstory to work towards it.) But ... massive continuity error from Furman! Ultra Magnus is a core character in it, this series pre-dating the Arrival from Cybertron ... but Furman's own Target: 2006 contained a character profile stating that Magnus had been built shortly before Operation: Volcano in 1986
  6. Oh, there was some real nastiness directed to him a few years ago for his explanation of Arcee being an identifiable female in a species where everybody else uses male pronouns. (Jhiaxus arbitrarily deciding to introduce gender to the species by experimenting on her was what it boiled down to, I think, with the character continuing to use those pronouns because she felt different as a result.) That brings to mind the reactionary pile-on which James Roberts suffered on Twitter when the Decepticons who had discovered a mentally shutdown Grimlock were offered a sizable sum to hand him over at the end of an issue. He left Twitter for a time and had to write a note explaining the obvious. It's amazing to me that anybody who has read MTMTE could think of him as a bigot.
  7. Don't forget to drop by the pets thread to share that you preferred your Tamagotchi. The cricket thread might benefit from knowing that you favour croquet, too.
  8. It's been several years since I posted in this thread. My big girl turned ten last week! She got spoiled, of course, including having a bit of a fun challenge, which she had a good attempt at: Little sister Pebbles (who has just turned 9, even though I still see her as being young) knew well enough not to touch it
