Once again a thread on a forum I frequent digs into Bud Lite, this time on account of some advertising. Now, I don't drink the stuff but apparently a LOT of people do. Yet for all that, on the various forums I go to no one ever defends the beer. Do you remember the beer summit? Obama, a professor and a cop get together over a few? The Cop had, IIRC, a Blue Moon. The professor a Red Stripe. Both good choices. And the President a ... Bud Lite. Now, normally if someone posted negatively about a personal preference supporters of the President would be all over them for petty partisanship ... but not even one whisper from the left at Hannity.

Hey do you like this new deviantart thing?

Do you mean where it opens up to a more general browsing page rather than just the profile?


If so I can understand a likely motivation: to drive views and more activity.


But I've not warmed up to it yet.

Okay my old comments were way too long and I’m just going to shorten them. I hid all of them since it can’t be deleted.

Shorter version: The transformers may treat Wheelie like an adult, but not his parents. The bots that Wheelie was around was where soldiers who never been kids or been around children, but that shouldn’t apply to all Cybertronians. It’s unknown how civilians would’ve treated Wheelie. If like his parents, then a child.

In the G1 / G2 cartoon we never see Wheelie's parents.


I'm not saying they didn't exist but at some point they were separated from him, and for the purposes of any fan fiction I might have considered writing this would have happened on Quintessa when the Quintessons had them killed because they were studying how the young mech would respond to being alone.


Why?


Because I maintain that Wheelie was intentionally presented as being a messed up kid with what little the writers had to work with given his screen time in the movie, mainly for his rhyming. He had but a few moments in that violent environment to establish his character and after that aside from helping Daniel plan a birthday party on the TV cartoon he seems to have got very little additional development.

Hey, okay, first off let me say that I later described my take as a minimalist one, which is to say in the G1 cartoon, simply if only because the show writers were making stuff up as they went along with no real plan, the bots end up with things like not knowing their own history. So when I say they don't know why they had genders (and realize that they would have had these before the met us carbon-motor life forms) that doesn't mean I was saying they didn't recognize that they did or that they didn't appreciate it. Only they didn't know why their original builders made the choice beyond possibly femmes were for secretarial work or entertainment / dancing girls (we did see them as dancing girls in the G1 cartoon, on earth, post-movie in one episode ... so ... yeah, that was a thing).

In the G1 cartoon (there are multiple incarnations that contradict each other and so really don't mean much for the specifics of the rest ... in the extreme I wouldn't reference Kiss Players for ANY other adaptation of the franchise) until the movie we only saw Cybertronians proper using Vector Sigma or mad scientists to increase their numbers, and even in the movie and later Wheelie is never explained at all.

Again, what in that thread I'd refer to as plotki (we need something here) or toyki (we need to sell this toy) or both.

i also read the rest of that old thread. Fun stuff.

i completely forgot about my last post in it:

Meanwhile on Cybertron:

*Autobot_1X9*: So, let me get this straight, humans don't LIKE mindless drudgery?

*BugbotPrime7*: LOL! Apparently. LOL!

*Autobot_1X9*: WTB?! So what do they DO with their free time?

*NinjaGoddess1*:  (2 cents smiley) Spend time on forums wondering how we reproduce?

*BugbotPrime7*: LOL! Suuuuure they do.... LOL!
Aren't you are some Transformers web boards?
