  1. I heard about this yesterday. I live in Columbus, but I've been far too busy to keep up with the exact details on this one. I agree that the cop should have used a taser, but I have difficulty outright calling it brutality; the suspect was actively fighting the cop from what I saw on the news yesterday, and could have easily gotten a hold of the gun. Again, I don't have all the details yet, but this one might just be a really bad call instead of active aggression by a cop. Regardless, the loss of a young life is a shame. And it should be considered to retrain all cops. Maybe training/protocol should be to go for taser in close-range encounters like this? I don't have the answers. It just hurts to see something like this hit so close to home (literally).
  2. This post cannot be displayed because it is in a forum which requires at least 50 posts to view.
  3. Ah. I missed that. Still tone-deaf in my opinion. Also, it really bugs me how he says he "discovered" details he's coming up with as he goes. It makes it sound like he's trying to sound more important. (Par for the course, I know, but still.) Especially when it contradicts things he has said in the past. Didn't he forget that he confirmed that Kragok's son was Remington years ago?
  4. Whoa what? Where did he say he assaulted anyone? I just went through recent tweets and found nothing.
  5. Ah, cool cool. Good to know! Thanks, mate!! (And I didn't mean to imply the other source wasn't reliable. Apologies for coming across as aggressive; I had hoped a few companies had become more blue over the course of Obama's second term. I'm a little bummed they didn't.) Part of me just wants it to be the 8th already.
  6. This article is from 2012. A lot can change in 5 years. Is there something more recent? Also, sorry Dizcrybe, Pizza Hut is on there. They're under Yum! Brands, which when mostly Republican in 2012's cycle.
  7. Great, now I can't unsee that. Also, haha "lawyers are sharks." The pinnacle of humor, Penders. thats sarcasm if it wasn't obvious
  8. Got an email reply to my SEGA support complaint. Basically a link to this page: http://www.sega.com/denuvo This feels super condescending to me...
  9. Let me make this clear: Read my posts before you try to talk down at me, please.
  10. First, that's kinda part of the problem. This "fuck you, got mine" attitude. Second. Did... did you read a word I said past the first line or two? Like, more than just skimmed? I am a woman. I am working hard. I literally worked myself sick. I have worked three jobs at once before just to make ends meet. And I'm still in a hole. And when I respectfully point out what I am worth AS A PERSON IN MY FIELD regardless of my gender (never even bringing it up), I'm basically told to prostitute myself on top of my job to pay rent. Before hiring a guy to do basically the same job as me, for three times my pay. How is that equality? How is that not sexist? And you still haven't responded to the coal miner bits. Do you think they don't work hard? And what about the fact that many pregnancies are due to abuse? Do those women need to "pay for it"? I'm happy that your mom was able to raise you and your siblings all on your own. That's great, and I'm not trying to undermine that. But, there's a lot of luck there. She had to be lucky to be in a place and time that allowed her to even land a decent job, let alone being able to raise three kids. And that's the problem. That's why I (and others) are upset at your post(s). You're suggesting "Oh, just work hard and things will all be good and equal and you'll get what you deserve." But that's not how it works. And it shouldn't have to come down to pure luck. Someone like me, who worked 40-60 hour weeks (and at one point was balancing full time school with two-three jobs), shouldn't be forced to work herself sick to afford rent. Someone with arguably good healthcare for an American shouldn't still be unable to diagnose why she's dying. You're acting as if I'm saying that as a woman, I'm not as capable. That's not AT ALL what I said. I'm just as capable, and I'm working just as hard as any of the men on my team. But I'm not being treated as an equal. That needs to stop and I (and all other women) need to stop being demonized for it when we point it out.
  11. I have to second this. I'm the type of person who felt that even some of the reboot!designs were too bland from trying to adhere to existing characters' design templates too strongly. As much as I hate the comic ending at the point it did (until we get solid news otherwise), with multiple arcs incomplete and so close to #300, I have to say that the worst part is all the creators (writers, artists) on the book who are being hurt by this. If IDW or anyone else picks it up, I really hope they at least reach out to as many of these guys as they can. On that note, can someone list as many of the artists' and writers' twitters as they can? I would like to follow as many as possible and give them support in whatever ways I can. And I'm sure I'm not the only one. EDIT: Thanks, mate. Just forwarded them my latest subscription email with a refund request. I don't really want any of Archie's other stuff.
  12. This is pretty much the long and short of it. Ironic when the Founding Fathers the GOP want to basically worship basically had said "enough" to the British Parliament for doing more or less what they're doing to their own constituents now. Except worse, because instead of just taxing the people, they're taking away the things those taxes are meant to pay for (taking care of the nation in general). No wonder France looked at us and Britain and went "Yeah, no, we'll learn from history, thanks." Pushing people back against the wall isn't how you make peace. When people have nothing left to lose, they will lash out in any way they can. And those lax gun laws the GOP are now going to shoot them in the foot. Literally, in some cases. (Note: I do not condone violence, of course, I shouldn't have to say it. But, I am not at all surprised that someone finally felt cornered enough to bite)
  13. While I know the concept of people bringing suits against Trump isn't all that new, this may be of interest: https://www.washingtonpost.com/local/dc-politics/dc-and-maryland-to-sue-president-trump-alleging-breach-of-constitutional-oath/2017/06/11/0059e1f0-4f19-11e7-91eb-9611861a988f_story.html Two AGs filing this one, however, makes it far more likely to at least gain traction.
  14. No. No no no. How on earth do you go from this design to... that? I actually *liked* Remington. Still like this one, the proper one, the one that actually has a reasonable design. He was a "normal Joe" just trying to do his job in a world of super-powered teenagers constantly causing him trouble. And he didn't grudge them for it. Even with Ken's... subpar writing, I always liked Remington. He was special because he WASN'T made out to be someone special or part of the Legion/Brotherhood drama directly (until Penders decided that he was suddenly Kragok's son... somehow. Which he's conveniently forgot about. Again, somehow) I just. Have no words. I'm exhausted and angry at 6 in the morning because all of Remington's design has been scrubbed for the monstrosity Penders has assaulted us with. The Mountie-esque uniform/hat. The hair/brows. Details I know people enjoyed about his design, myself included (darn hat was hard to draw though). And he just. All gone. For a baseball cap and green shirt that looks two sizes too big. The only traits that remain are his being an Echidna (and no matter what Ken calls his hogglesnog-ripoffs, they're still apeing the Sega-stylized Echidnas) and being a vaguely brown color, though the "new" one looks kinda reddish. Congratulations, Penders. You have drawn a "Constable" that doesn't even look like he works as a desk clerk. I understand that aliens can have more unique style of clothes (and that he's claiming they're all aliens now), but there's a reason why uniforms in so many places in the world share similar traits. They look official. This looks like a guy who just woke up. (which, sadly, I am. what a joyous way to start my day)
  15. SOURCE He may not have said "M25YL MUST BE CANON" but he might as well have. I mean, "nothing must contradict" and "canon as far as [...] I'm concerned" as a core rule? That's pretty much trying to skirt around explicitly saying just that. It's still controlling things. Especially when Sega's had a future time for the series since at least '06 (even if Silver's time from there was technically changed, and if you don't count CD, which I don't). Either way, it's an arrogant thing to do and demand. Controlling the path of a work you don't have total ownership (or, really ownership at all. His characters were only so much of an influence because he "created" so many and forced them into the spotlight/important roles so much) is in extremely poor taste and not at all professional. Especially a licensed work, which Sonic has always been. Not to mention stifling. Having alternate futures means that you get to play with that sandbox (esp when we have Silver) without ruining the suspense or fun of the present-day arcs (If Vector shows up in the future, we can be certain he lives--Unless this is explicitly a possible future based only on the arcs up to the time of writing; then it can be a fun what-if). Granted, he *does* say that only Lara-Su needs 100% approval every time, with the exception of character death (which is bunk, anyway, since characters are revived all the time in fiction and HE KILLED KNUCKLES), so long as M25YL and his supposedly-upcoming work aren't contradicted. It's really the latter that implies he'd had to approve things, since there is no way to predict what would contradict something that he has not published. Speaking of, I really wish he'd stop rambling about this supposed app, and how amazing it apparently is. I've coded apps. I've had to show screens and such to prove progress. Even when those screens were a poor representation, they at least proved that I was doing something. Until he shows a screenshot, I personally refuse to believe that any such thing exists. He's used so many excuses to avoid actually working on this book that he sabotaged plotlines/etc that a number of fans were invested in over, and this is just the next one. If we're lucky, he might cough up that second page just to shut us up (since it's apparently written, if not completely drawn. Text had been translated, at least). At this point, I don't believe that anything further, on either his prologue or the main book, will ever see the light of day, aside from the occasional bit of "separate" art done to create the illusion of work on the book and to try to sell merch for an unpublished work. But, he'd rather argue with people on Twitter than actually work on the book. Which I would be fine with. If he was at least upfront about it all.
