The packaging, too, was a step beyond what other lines were doing. Every packaging back had a hefty bio of the character, penned by Marvel author Bob Budiansky. Most lines gave their toys only a cursory sentence or two about the toy's imaginary powers (if at all, GoBots didn't), but the Transformers bios truly \"humanized\" the alien robots, giving each one a distinct personality complete with motto, on top of a much more full description of the imaginary powers that character possessed. This, too, was carried over from G.I. Joe, where Larry Hama had written background file cards for each character. Attached was the \"Tech Specs\", numeric rankings of the character's stats. This information was (mostly) obscured and (sort of) unreadable without a red plastic \"Tech Spec decoder\" inside the boxed toys early on (though the red lens of a pair of 3D glasses would work too, and who didn't have at least one of those lying around in the 80s), but eventually would move to easily-readable bars.
However, this high point also marked the start of the franchise's waning. The cartoon was ended with a truncated three-part special, with reruns continuing on in syndication. Mail-away offers were also slowing down, with no new product available from this year on, only older items no longer in stores. Smaller figures were packaged with small soft-rubber Decoys of older characters as an extra incentive, but they weren't a fully transformable mini-Transformer.
After four years and slowly-declining sales, the push to make Transformers live up to its new tagline (\"More... Much More Than Meets the Eye!\") was in full effect. Even toys in old subgroups gained new gimmicks: the new Mini-Cassettes were combiners, the Seacon combiner team's limb-bots each had a cannon mode the super-robot could use as a handgun, and the Targetmasters each had two Nebulans who could also combine into a super-gun.
You or I may try to chew carefully when we chew on a hard object such as ice or olives or cherries that may have pits. There is no evidence that dogs are careful. Also, dog enamel is only 1/3 as thick as human enamel and the chewing force of a dog is measured at 3 times more than a human can achieve.

After students have successfully made one length of wire into a permanent magnet, set them the challenge of making the most powerful magnet they can. They can again test their success by attracting and lifting as many of the paperclips as they can with their wire magnets. Have students from each group record the number of paperclips their magnet can lift. Encourage students to investigate different properties of the wires that may contribute to making better magnets e.g. compare the number of times each was stroked, the length of the wires and the methods used to stroke each wire.
The world cracked open for General Mills under the pipe-smoking visionary Rawlings, whose un-military wardrobe included red socks and loud Hawaiian shirts. From 1961 to 1969, General Mills bought 37 companies in the U.S. and abroad, mostly nonfood businesses.
The best adhesive to fix your cracked plastic depends on the job at hand. Some products are better suited for large projects, while others can bond only certain kinds of plastic. Some adhesives, such as Loctite Plastics Bonding System, are formulated to bond difficult materials like polyethylene, polypropylene, and Teflon. Others, like the epoxy Loctite Plastic Bonder, offer different advantages, including versatility and water resistance. You need to consider whether your adhesive is needed for interior or exterior applications and how you use the object you want to repair.

\"Crack\" is the street name given to cocaine that has been processed from cocaine hydrochloride to a free base for smoking. It is in the form of small, hard, white chunks and is a stimulant to the central nervous system. Crack is deadlier than other forms of cocaine and is extremely addictive. Anyone using crack may become an addict in two to three weeks, and in some cases, people who try crack become instantly addicted the first time they use the drug.
Crack reaches the brain in less than 8 seconds and produces a \"high\" which peaks in 10-15 seconds and lasts only 15 minutes. This \"high\" is produced because crack tricks the brain into releasing chemicals that produce a false feeling of intense pleasure.
The \"high\" is immediately followed by an intense \"low\". The \"low\" begins with feelings of sadness and depression, followed by irritability, sleeplessness, and paranoia. Finally, the user experiences a schizophrenic-like psychosis with delusions and hallucinations. The use of crack is also accompanied by a number of physical side effects.
Use Bow to blow up the block with the crack in front of you and you will see how shy these Shy Guys really are. Unfazed by the screaming masses, you should go to the right.
