    first person - "I took the gun in my hand and squeezed the trigger, the recoil flung my arm back and cut my thumb open. I went to clean the wound with iodine, its stench and color turned my stomach. Afterwards, I grabbed more shells from the box and could feel my face tighten as I loaded each one, knowing what each one could be fated for."
    second person - "You walked down the hall, the shackles around your ankles chafed with every step, each one produced a rhythmic clanking which was music to your ears - the last music you'd ever hear. A priest stopped you and performed last rites. You looked into his dead eyes and knew that he would have to suffer a thousand more deaths, while you were on your way to your final one. They shaved your head and off you went to the chamber, you couldn't wait to see the looks on their faces."
    third person - "He watched as the woman left the club and walked hurriedly to her car. As she scanned the surroundings, he ducked down under the sill of his DeSoto and listened until he heard her door slam and motor turn over, then he popped back up. Quickly he hit the starter and pulled out of the space with his lights still off to avoid catching her attention. His target wasn't going to lose him so quickly, even if she was being careful. That money was going to be in his hands in only a few hours, he could already feel each bill."

    Notice that first person narrative speaks as the protagonist, the second person narrative speaks to the protagonist, and the third person narrative speaks of the protagonist - while remaining outside the parties those involved in the story.
    Very didactic (and the Continental Op would be pleased by the examples). You know, JT, in the teaching profession, we're always looking for a few good men (and women) to help indoctrinate the youth of this country.

    Cool.

    I wished I had something else to say about Transformers right now.

    Oh, I actually do:

    http://www.tfw2005.com/transformers-...ormers-174774/

    This article from TFW2005 is an interview with the guys who actually invented Transformers.

    How cool is that?

    Well, the foundation was a collaborative process. One of these guys did actually design Reflector and Perceptor, however.

    I think Transformers are cool. I always did. I liked Ironhide when I was a kid. Still do. I think his G1 toy looked good in the packaging. But it was disappointing when you opened him up.

    Optimus Prime is usually always the best toy: G1 was an awesome figure and today's Masterpiece has not yet been outdone.

    And I would wear a t-shirt with a picture of a Peterbuilt truck in red and blue with the license plate "F*RODMS" on it.

    You've seen the new Masterpiece Optimus Prime, right?

    Speaking of Masterpieces, I really want MP-11.

    I scored PRID Arcee yesterday at Walmart. I was not going to get this version originally since I already have the FE, but I am glad I decided to get her. She's a really cool figure, although a bit smaller in proportion to the FE design.

    Did anyone find/purchase Cyberverse Shockwave? I found him once but didn't buy him due to being out of state. Haven't seen him since. Now the price is ridiculous and I'm curious if its worth the money.

    I'm sure you're NOT in the market, but I wanted throw fuel on the fire of the debate for whether MP-1 Prime has been eclipsed. Not even sure where I fall, but here's a link: http://www.bigbadtoystore.com/bbts/p...55&mode=retail

    It's Hey wonderful hommage to G1 but they do you use the now masterpiece as the basis. That demonstrates the quality of that point.

    I have MP-1 (the first Optimus Masterpiece), but do not have MP-10. From all the reviews I have read on MP-10, most say it is superior.
