Four legged giant robots?  Sky Lynx Approves!

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
I thought autobots couldn't fly...

Its less that Autobots can't fly and more that the original group that landed on earth can't fly.  They have the aerialbots and Jetfire and some space-worthy ones like Omega Supreme, Cosmos and Sky Lynx.  The Decepticons definitely do have more fliers in general though.

IIRC a classic Transformers episode involving both sides hijacking vehicles to somehow make more transformers (to sell more toys I imagine), and I remember Optimus being like "we're going to fight them in the AIR" and pointing vaguely at the sky.  Also, starscream was trying to steal an F1 car and really struggling to fit his massive limbs in the tiny cockpit.

There was also the DS transformers game that was based off the michael bay movies (the game was actually ok tho) which gave you the ability to scan cars and such and transform into whatever you scanned, though you had to stick to one form at a time.

Glancing through old books remains something of a trip. The casual racism and sexism is a helluva' thing. Book on swimming (well, not drowning) technique cheerfully referring to women as "our future house keepers" (or something like that), cheerfully noting minorities are six times as likely to be "sinkers", etc., etc.

I know that there's been some controversial research regarding different body types across ethnicities and the effect that has on various sports, but that's not "minorities" in general and six times is a lot higher than what's hinted at in the studies...

It was five out of whatever (think it was a hundred, but it's been a few hours and I was more concerned about getting near sixty year old swimming advice out of my library) for white men and thirty out of whatever for "colored men". The numbers for women were unmentioned and presumably whoever wrote the book didn't care enough to find out ::)

Mind you, if I'm remembering right, none of this stuff was, like, sourced or anything, so.

E: This wiki page mentions the 1963 book and some surrounding stuff. Came out of Georgia Tech. There was some hell of a thing illustrations in that book. Had one guy in the water with a noose around his head, another tied to the bottom of a pool.

YouTube just will not show me a certain playlist. No matter what combination of search terms I enter, it will not appear. All the videos in the playlist will show up, other playlists containing the same videos in the same order will show up. But not this one particular playlist.

Internet was a mistake.

If you can not find it, how do you know it exists? If you found it before, what if it was deleted?

It's a let's play, and the channel always puts their LPs into a playlist as they are uploaded. I can get to it by going to their channel page, but it will never ever appear in search results that I can tell.

Somebody with lots of cash (ahem,  mean, somebody with Mafiaa associations) must have taken exception to it.

I REALLY hate that about how the DMCA is so heavily biased in favor of incumbent industries like that; Literally, they cannot do wrong with their fraudulent takedowns and strike requests. Even when they are flat out wrong about their claims, the only thing that you can bust them for is if they misstate who they claim to represent.  Really.

They could claim they own the rights to every piece of classical music ever put on parchment, as long as who they say they represent is who they actually represent, there is no penalty.
