The comparisons came fast and furious when the first synopsis for Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim leaked out. Giant robots fighting giant monsters? For kids of a recent generation, it sounded a lot like the cheese-tastic Power Rangers series. Only, you know, awesome.
Members of Generation X, we have some good news—the two have joined forces in a pretty spot-on fan trailer cut. Chopping up the snippets of footage we got to see in the new trailer with a great theme and voiceover track from Power Rangers, the dark sci-fi footage takes on a completely different tone with that jittery techno backing track.

Just felt bored and decided to look at the admin log to see who's been getting PWN'ed again, been awhile lol. And then I saw this.
After I wiped the floors of TAN with both of you it was obvious that you two needed to lean on each other for emotional support. But to abuse your admin powers to save someone from 'embarrassment' rather than remain neutral and let things flow naturally!?

It's pretty self explanatory that you did someone a "favor" using your admin privilege's, especially when you two are on the same side of an argument. Unprofessional admin. . . Guess only Biggles can see what really went down.
