Blitzwing and Astrotrain would like to have a word with you

Another thing I've gotten sick of is the continual rape of The Transformers. Every successive show they come out with is total bullshit. I have seen nothing but a string of shit like this which has me saying stuff like "That's not Optimus Prime."

Yes, I know, these cocksuckers have to make money, because that's what they do. But why do they always have to do it at the expense of something that actually matters? Yes, in this world of war, poverty, disease, corruption, pollution, etc., the Transformers are important, goddammit.

Other than the Takara re-releases and the toy commercials I know and love (i.e., the TV series from the 80s) being released on DVD, the only thing I've been satisfied with when it comes to advancing the franchise are the Binaltech series. I've brought this up before; it's the series of Transformers that they're making which are based on modern cars. Well, I'm happy with the Japanese versions, as opposed to the cheap American versions (known as "Alternators") which have plastic instead of the die-cast parts found on their Japanese counterparts. Okay, there are some things I object to with this series, like the Ford Mustang that they're calling Grimlock. Look, Me Grimlock is a half-witted dinosaur, okay? Otherwise, though, you guys are good on that front.

... some of the new Cybertron toys have a special "triple change" feature, which enables the toys to switch into three different modes.

Wow, that's amazing! We've never had Transformers that could change into three different modes before! Fucking dipshits.
One tech news site I used to read avidly was the British site The Register. Not only was it news about shit I was following (mainly microprocessor news at the time, in addition to other stuff), but they had a tendency to be pretty funny about it as well. Although I only read El Reg every now and then as opposed to religiously (got pretty sick of the whole microprocessor game), they've still got the knack for interesting tech news writing. They have this series called "Rise of the Machines," which is about avdances in technology that "threaten" humanity or instances of technology gone berserk. I found this pretty amusing, as well as its follow-up.

I suppose the experience was worth it, though, even if Wil Wheaton was there for like six seconds. I really need to get my shit together and order his two books.

Even if the threats had been real, it wouldn't have been a problem since Tugger's got his back.
Good. How satisfying do you think it must have been for the judge to get to write an opinion including phrases like "Had the Larsons done a bit more homework..."?

Hopefully after this bullshit, whiny ass pussy Peer will no longer have any friends (assuming he had any to begin with). That'd be great, because in my book, he'd have to kill himself for failing to live up to his own name. May as well take his dad along with him, who -- in addition to giving his kid a stupid name -- is teaching his son great lessons about coping with the real world by forstering complaints about three whole fucking assignments.
