Shoutbox

Welcome To The SiF Shoutbox!
Sleeper Agent: But it does answer the apparently eternal question (rofl) If you specified 'chicken egg' then it's the chicken as only it can lay a chicken egg and if the egg belongs to the newborn it's the chick's egg (and this could of become a cockerel :P ). Jun 16, 2021 22:53:53 GMT
Nicholas: According to the latest theories, the egg came first containing the first chicken, it being a mutation taking place in a zygote from two proto-chickens around 58,000 years ago, themselves having evolved through thousands of years from theropods. Jun 16, 2021 23:49:41 GMT
Nicholas: And, to come full circle, City of Truro was the first steam engine to reach a reported speed of 100mph, but Flying Scotsman was the first steam engine to reach an officially confirmed speed of 100mph. Jun 16, 2021 23:52:21 GMT *
PercyFan1998: Flying Scotsman was first gang. But I respect the idea of Truro being the possible first but I have my doubts. Jun 16, 2021 23:59:53 GMT
Madness: I think the answer to that was mentioned on a show called 'Q.I'. Jun 17, 2021 0:08:09 GMT
Kyle: Currently working on a little project. Can't say much, other than: Something Wicked This Way Comes Jun 17, 2021 11:20:33 GMT
harperman: 0o0 Jun 17, 2021 13:09:37 GMT
dtchapman1: I don't think Qi have stated it, and even if they were to do that question I get a horrible premonition that they'll say it was engine 999. Jun 17, 2021 17:05:19 GMT
dtchapman1: Which is utter horse Jun 17, 2021 17:06:05 GMT
aspiegurl: AEG, the reboot is a jump the shark moment, IMO. "Bother" that "disgraceful, disgusting, despicable" "rubbish". Jun 17, 2021 18:02:08 GMT *
TheGreenBeetle: The reboot is just something of its own way, so yeah, I see why. Jun 18, 2021 6:27:26 GMT
aspiegurl: >:( I have a fanfic about Thomas finding out about AEG and in the fic, he's angry. Jun 18, 2021 15:09:14 GMT
OJ: I'm hoping that here's a Hitler rant about All Engine Go. Those are usually good. Jun 18, 2021 17:55:59 GMT
TheGreenBeetle: Any modelers out there interested in a couple of Lionel figures? twitter.com/TheGreenBeetle2/status/1406272918879887361 Jun 19, 2021 15:30:44 GMT
Gondarth: I keep looking for a release date for All Engines Go. I don't care about the reboot as it is, but I would laugh if it premiered on the day of my wedding (October 16th) Jun 19, 2021 22:28:02 GMT
aspiegurl: October 2021's all I know, so it might be your wedding day Jun 19, 2021 22:50:36 GMT
The Thomas Cynic: You could have a live screening party! Jun 20, 2021 5:46:15 GMT
Gondarth: I would laugh if it is on the same day, but my wedding is on a Saturday, and that seems like a weird day to start airing a new show on Netflix, so I'm not holding my breath. You never know though... Jun 20, 2021 11:40:04 GMT
TheGreenBeetle: For Father's Day today, I remembered when he was fond of Duke when I was a kid. So I shared him the video
