Lightninglouie posted a great link above that explains it all, but a lot of the key GI Joe concepts came out of previous pitch for a special SHIELD team called Fury Force. When Hasbro came to Marvel for help developing the GI Joe toy line, the Fury Force concepts were dusted off and used to develop GI Joe. So it… » 9/17/14 8:42am Today 8:42am

Still, it is a nice restoration of a great movie for its 30th anniversary.

Since text messages travel in extra unused space in the cellular infrastructure, it is really hard to spam the system to the… » 9/15/14 11:40am Monday 11:40am
