Overnight Open Thread (3/11/16) [Misanthropic Humanitarian]

Friday Night Edition

<funny friday dog picture.jpg

Welcome to the CDR M-less ONT. CDR M sends his love and dirty laundry. He's on a top secret mission. If he spills the beans he has to kill us.

<die winter.jpg

The calendar says it's March 11th. Spring arrives in 9 days. Not too soon for my liking. Does Winter get you down? Merely being depressed during winter is not evidence that one is depressed because of winter. New study sheds light on Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD). Maybe tomorrow we could all participate in National Plant A Flower Day and be happy little buttercups.

Speaking of March 11th, did any summon the Morons who might be in their workshops?

Let's take a stroll down memory lane. Do you remember your first? I think I was 9. Mine was a Kamp King Since we are strolling down Nostalgia Avenue when did you get your first firearm? How old were you? What kind was it? When I turned 12 my father presented me a H&R 20 gauge single shot. I still have it to this day.

Do you remember Leave It To Beaver, Gilligan's Island, Daniel Boone? TV was kinder and gentler then. There are still some conservative TV shows.


Many of the Horde have hobbies. Some learn a 2nd language. Some knit/crochet, some lift weights from those 12 oz. curls to the weight of a professional NFL lineman. Some tackle art with pencils and brushes. Stefan Pabst is outstanding. Watch.

Since we are discussing art, modern art is explained.

Speaking of art, this is pretty amazing.

What do you use for transportation when your hobby is running for the POTUS?


Pow, bam to Mars Alice may be closer than we think


What killed Harry Houdini?

As is, no Huskies, no yellow snow or pajama people

Good bye old TV friend, may retirement treat you well. We will miss your wit and wisdom.


We all need forgiveness, don't we?

So, the "Young Messiah" movie seems to be getting downer reviews. I liked "Risen" (reviewed it here in fact) but I'm not sure that Anne Rice is really the way to go with evangelism. I've read "The Infancy Gospel of Thomas". There's a reason it's not in the New Testament.

At least Lestat isn't in it. So, there's that.

With Trump it was - as was helpfully noted last thread - ISIS gunning for Geller at Garland. With Cruz, it's #blm rioting in Chicago.

49 Looking back, my father was either trying to make sure I was a man's man or was trying to kill me.

Got my first gun when I was 10. A .410 870 Wingmaster pump. Got my first handgun when I was 14. Used .38 Snub Nose. Helped me with a down payment on a Cutlass Salon with a 455 Rocket engine when I was 16. When I graduated HS at 17 I got a Yamaha 400 Enduro for a graduation present. I really shouldn't be alive today or at least missing a limb or two.

It was a cap and ball Navy .36 and to this day (~40 yrs), I don't think it's ever been fired.

Dad told me not to even think about figuring out a way to load it and shoot it. Thankfully I grasped the subtext and context and fully understood that my world would never be the same, in a very bad way, if I did.

70 1st rifle: Remington 572 ADL Fieldmaster, .22 LR. Mom bought it at a garage sale for me in 1973, for $35, in mint condition. I was fifteen years old, then.

Had to sell it in 1979 to help pay for her funeral.

Getting a twin to replace it is indeed, on my bucket list. I'll know it when I see it.

As for Chicago? Just a taste of things to come. They think they're strong in their liberal enclaves, and to that degree, they might be right.

Until, that is, they try to project themselves beyond those urban boundaries. Then they'll learn what "tough", "resolve" and "dangerous" really mean.

75 My "first" was when I was thirteen. It was a bolt-action .22 rifle. Remington bullets is as detailed as I can get.

I hit a crayon from, (approx), fifteen yards and Dad was proud of me. He laughed and said, "Holy Shit!"

...first shot I ever took.

Just because it went through all of the "buffer wood" and embedded into my Gandma's foundation bricks should make no difference.

...because Dad let me shoot a gun in a basement and it didn't kill anyone else.

89 My first gun was a single-shot, bolt-action Ruger .22 rifle. In addition to working the bolt, you had to cock it by grasping a knob on the action just behind the bolt and pulling it back. I don't know if I was just a wimpy ten year old or if it was a design feature intended to encourage parental oversight but I found it very hard to cock the gun. I tied twine around the knob to give me something to grab onto to make it easier for me.

92 Winter was late this year, and mild with only two nights below zero, and not much snow. Spring was early, and we've had a week, going on two, of fifty degrees in the afternoon. Snow pack is already showing bare spots.

Question?

A friend told the to burn the thatch off. I "accidentally" burned off a bunch of it in my backyard. My neighbor called it "a mess." I expect the coming rains to make it all better.

109 My first firearm was a little 32 acp that belonged to my grandfather. He handed it to me when I was 12, saying I was a man now, and a man needs to know how to shoot.

It was a funny little thing - there was something 'wrong' with the sear, and it would empty the magazine every time you pressed the trigger. Pa said that was intentional.....

Also had a very strong emphasis on family ties and all that, and was maybe the last prime-time network show that didn't become fascinated with teh gheyz.

--Heh, Cinnamon. When I was younger my family had a male (!) cat named Cinnamon. He was a big tomcat, very athletic, but also very affectionate, like a puppy. Even if he was cat-napping, if you peeked around the corner he would jump up and run to you, and he loved sitting in laps. I miss that cat.

253 Since we are strolling down Nostalgia Avenue when did you get your first firearm? How old were you? What kind was it?

----
I had shot guns with the family since I was about 6, but the first gun I owned was one I bought at 19.

I had been sexually assaulted, but didn't tell anyone. I asked my college roommate's older boyfriend to go with me to the gun store and get me a handgun, which I would pay for. Yes, an illegal straw purchase. I selected a H&R .22 revolver cheap POS.

So about a year later my crappy hand me down truck broke on my way home from college, and a very large man who stopped tried to be too "helpful", if you know what I mean. I pulled the revolver halfway out of my purse and he ran like a bunny, yelling "gracias!"

Good times.

That's why I'm obsessed with gun rights. It was illegal for me to have that gun in my truck,, and it was illegal for me to own a handgun at that age, but if I hadn't broken those laws,who knows what would've happened.

Last year my mom, who's getting pretty old, showed me how to open her big safe and what was in it. There in a baggie was that crappy little gun that may have saved me, but also gives me bad memories.

I left it in her safe. I have several much nicer handguns now that don't have creepy memories attached. Thank God for modern carry laws.

265 @156 No Good Deed.


Whoever you hire to replace your garbagegobbler.... you should insist that they install a single-socket 110v receptacle box under the sink, so that you can simply plug/unplug your disposal at that junction. A surface-mount box will work for this application, and be way faster, easier and less expensive to install than an in-wall type junction box. The single outlet type is for safety reasons. You don't want a typical duplex outlet there, with one plug open to any water leaks or such.

Given $100 for a new disposal, plus 30% markup for the plumber's having to go and buy the thing, you shouldn't have to pay but about $200 more in total labor for the job. That surface mount electrical box and outlet won't cost but about $10/$12 at the Home Despot.

Take some pics of the finished project, and post 'em for Teh Horde. Us "tools" guys like that kind o' stuff.

Axes? I brought two nice wooden-handled single-bitted axes to Arizona with me this trip. Gave one, a Hudson Bay pattern, to a friend who I had earlier seen risking his shins by trying to split firewood with a crappy camp hatchet. Hatchets are the Devil's work. Handle too short to let the blade have any energy, so the natural tendency is to swing them too hard, and then when a blow misses, that short handle directs the blade right at your leg.


And try to find a decent single-bitted axe here in AZ? Fuggedaboudit.

Yeah, me too. He didn't say so when we were younger, but he never fired a gun again after doing his duty in WWII.
My brother and I found his guns, what little collection he had, in the attic snooping around. A hex barrel .22lr pump, a 12 gauge Ithaca pump, and a 10 gauge double barrel.

We annoyed him so much with our pleas and questions, he finally took us to his brother's house out in the sticks and had us shoot 12 gauge at ice blocks.

Knocked us on our asses, and didn't end our fascination with firearms as I'm sure he intended. Oh no, it was just beginning.

318 I've noticed that there is a tendency for people to show up here and claim "X did Y, and I am now done with him!"

9 times out of 10 once you look into the facts, they aren't quite what is claimed. So until I find a source, I'll choose to not believe the other candidates are blaming Trump for Soros protesters.

Now as to what I think of it? I think it sucks, Trump should be able to have a rally any place he wants. But I think Trump missed an opportunity. He wants to show he is a tough alpha male, he should have gone forward with it. Let the left take the heat for starting a riot. This is the same tendency he showed when he skipped the Fox debate. He says he is tough, but when he has the chance to prove it, he hides or threatens a lawsuit.

As for Fox? I don't know what to think about them. They've been so in the tank for Trump I can't imagine them blaming him for this.

Since we are strolling down Nostalgia Avenue when did you get your first firearm? How old were you? What kind was it?



----

I had shot guns with the family since I was about 6, but the first gun I owned was one I bought at 19.



I had been sexually assaulted, but didn't tell anyone. I asked my
college roommate's older boyfriend to go with me to the gun store and
get me a handgun, which I would pay for. Yes, an illegal straw purchase.
I selected a HR .22 revolver cheap POS.



So about a year later my crappy hand me down truck broke on my way
home from college, and a very large man who stopped tried to be too
"helpful", if you know what I mean. I pulled the revolver halfway out of
my purse and he ran like a bunny, yelling "gracias!"



Good times.



That's why I'm obsessed with gun rights. It was illegal for me to
have that gun in my truck,, and it was illegal for me to own a handgun
at that age, but if I hadn't broken those laws,who knows what would've
happened.



Last year my mom, who's getting pretty old, showed me how to open
her big safe and what was in it. There in a baggie was that crappy
little gun that may have saved me, but also gives me bad memories.



I left it in her safe. I have several much nicer handguns now that
don't have creepy memories attached. Thank God for modern carry laws.

343 So today I learnt that Goliath might not have been a Philistine.

Septuagint says Goliath was an "Allophylian", which looks like "Pamphylian" to me, and apparently to the Greek translator of Amos too (he put those Allophylians in Cappadocia, which is now coastal south Turkey).

The textual history of the Torah is pretty well known. If you have a modern translation of the Torah, you can be assured that it's giving you the Torah as it existed as of, oh, 300 BC. All witnesses to the Torah knew what a "philistine" was. The Jews were careful copyists, so were the Samaritans, and the Greek-speaking Jews were careful translators.

... for Torah.

The textual status of the books of Judges, Samuel, Kings, Amos etc... not so much. The Samaritans didn't copy those books at all. And the Greeks didn't translate those books so literally. And the Jews didn't copy them as carefully ("hey, we're doing Torah here, they're just history books so whaddaya want?").

Not a diagnosis, but as I recall "flashes of light" would be bad enough to go to the ER soonest. That's what you get when the nerve disconnects from the detector cells, so each flash is a pixel permanently lost.

408 Grey Fox - Gun show tomorrow. Can't decide whether I'm going or not.

I've been looking forward to it, but now that it has arrived...I don't need or even want to buy another gun right now, and my money would be a lot more usefully employed buying ammo, parts, or even that book of NC longrifles. I haven't even got that Enfield I bought the beginning of last fall to the range yet, after all. So I don't think I'll be going after all.

Plus, I think I need a new computer - this one overheats regularly at apparently random intervals and shuts down.

I waited ...... 8 hours before they call me to come back for xrays to see if I'd broken ribs and stuff since I was in pain.

That's why I mentioned it. Teh only folks going ahead in line were the cardiac emergencies coming in my ambulance and the one guy who'd got shot.

442 Not sure if y'all are referring to the caliber, but for those unfamiliar with blackpowder guns - .50 caliber is a middling caliber, suitable for deer and black bear, but a bit light for elk. Blackpowder ballistics are a lot closer to a modern shotgun firing a slug, I think, than a modern rifle.

My .50 flintlock kicks quite a bit less than 8mm Mauser or even a .303 Brit.

The rifle I am (supposedly) getting started on now is in .54 caliber, basically a 28 gauge with a rifled barrel.

448 All right, I'm here, and I been downin beers. I need y'all to put me some knowledge. I haven't been talking about my new job, which was going ok. But we got a new boss recently, and between my gut and comments that have been made my job is targeted for elmination to cut costs. And this new boss is of what my friend T calls the "dog-poop school of interpersonal relations". As in underlings are not acknowedged, instead its all "oohhh dog poop, step over that and keep going to avoid the stench".

So...I pull into the market 2 blocks from my house after putting in an 11 hour day today. I pick up my crab cakes and go to get in the check out line. And guess who's there? That's right, boss avoid & downsize the dog poop. I ran. Hopefully I was not seen. But I have lived in this house my entire life, and now this asshat lives in my neighborhood. I'm thinking sign from GOD to find a new job and GTFO ASAP. Thoughts from the horde?

Oh yeah, and how the fuck do I be polite if i run into this person in MY NEIGHBORHOOD, when they fucking look right through me at the office?! Fuck. My. Life.

Things aren't always what they seem in a hospital, though.

There are usually tons of people getting Xrayed, so yea, they call back the sore throats because it doesn't take long to do a quick check and send them home, but in the meantime, you wait for a sweet forever for a room to clear in Radiology because somethings take many series of Xrays to diagnose and then a Radiologist has to read them.

481 If any Morons are into the antique stuff, let me know. I've got a Marlin 1892, built either in 1898 or 1905, depending on which reference site sourced. .22 LR, not the .32 version. This is a very, very early "Safety Hammer" version.

And it's a fine shooter, still.

Values on these are all over the map. Normally, I'm pretty on-point as to valuing modern arms, but the antique market isn't my specialty at all.

It's pretty much a precursor to the vaunted Model 39-A, same takedown feature. But it's more trim of line and bulk. Literally, a "carry all day" little rifle.

Knowing the expertise distributed throughout Teh Horde, I figured I might gain me some knowledge 'bout that little rifle.

If you meet said @sswipe in your real life, simply pick up your phone and pretend you're talking to someone. Or when you go into a store, put in some ear buds. That way you don't have to communicate with him. Or even make eye contact.

Last week, I had to interview former boss who called me names. He barely spoke on the phone and gave me an almost useless interview. Yet, the firm is an advertiser and I'm pretty much obligated not to throw them under the bus.

518 492 Hi Chi, I'm wondering what a good price for having a 1/2 hp Badger 5 disposal replaced and installed is. I have a quote of $677, but that seems kind of high to me.
Posted by: no good deed
------------------
I quick search on Home Depot dot com says I can buy a Badger 5 for $87.
If this is a direct replacement, it should take 15 or 20 minutes, tops.
If you were my neighbor, I would charge you a beer.

If you need new electric under the sink, and new plumbing for a new install of your first disposal, $600 probably isn't out of line.

(To meet new/current code, it should be on a dedicated circuit, but a simple replacement won't require that. And, whatever you purchase , it won't have a power supply [cord] connected to it. You DO NOT necessarily need a new outlet installed under the sink)

Shibumi's life:

Had a longtime freelance client. They were asses. I quit.

Fast
forward four months. I'm a freelance writer. I'm covering a project
they're involved with. They are an advertiser with $$$ so I can't just
not talk to them.

Last week, I had to interview former boss who
called me names. He barely spoke on the phone and gave me an almost
useless interview. Yet, the firm is an advertiser and I'm pretty much
obligated not to throw them under the bus.

So... you think your
life sux? I get to make someone I really don't like who is a name
calling beta male jackass who don't even own a pair of big boy pants
look good in a trade publication.

529 Yip, I know Mike Clark, the owner of Collector's Firearms. Intersection of Richmond & Fondren, Houston, TX.

Fact is, I'm who first introduced Kim DuToit to that vaunted store, back around 2004, as I recall.

That said, he does not at present, list any '92 Marlin's for sale in his inventory. And good a guy as he is, he'll only quote his lowest lowball buyer's price were I to take it in for an appraisal.

The only way to know what he thinks they're worth on the open market, is to wait for him to have one in inventory, and listed for sale.

The Gunbroker prices are wishes and dreams on the ones they have listed. The "very pretty" ones are up around $900. But, they seem to have all been refinished, the stocks at minimum. And there's no way a refinished one holds that kind of value.

This one is solid, honest and genuine in it's old patina. And clean as whistle internally. Bit of a unicorn, actually.

It'll find a home with the right Marlin or olde .22 nut, in due time. But not until due price, of that you may be certain.

One day at the range two guys with revolvers showed me how, in effect, you can convert a BP revolver to a normal/cartridge revolver - or am I misremembering that? Just swap cylinders?

558 There is a gel sac in the eye that dries out and shrinks as we age. As it shrinks it will separate from the retina. If it is too sticky, it will take the retina with it as it pulls away. Not good. Mine was really weird. For a while there was a dark, ring shaped floatie in my right eye field of vision. One day it just exploded and covered my FOV like a Jackson Pollack painting. It dissolved into what looked like 10,000 gnats. Then came the light flashes. Fortunately, I have an optometrist friend who took my phone call when it happened, and she set me up with someone right away. Fortunately, I came away with no damage. Apparenty, though, if the sacred is stuck to the retina you only have a few hours to prevent permanent vision loss.

568 Chi, so you want NGD to have the new disposal hard-wired into an existing junction box, "as is"?

Screw that. Get an outlet box installed while she's got the old hard-wired opened up, and make it a "plug and play" option, from that time forward.

Every.... EVERY SINGLE DAMN ONE of a new house on the market now, has an outlet under the sink for the disposal connection. "Hard Wired" from the switch to the disposal just isn't done any more. Unless some obscure municipal code demands such, but that's not in keeping with NEC.

Can she stick with "hard wired" just like it is? Certainly. And then she'll need another overpriced union rip off artist again in +/- ten years time when that unit bites the dust.

It's worth the bother and minor extra expense to fix it right and set it up with the inevitable future in mind.

572 Airshow fans, tomorrow is the Blue Angels' first show of the season, as always at their winter training home, El Centro (speck in the desert 100 miles east of San Diego).


Tiny little "Naval Air Facility". The big show in October is, I was told, the largest event on the west coast, by attendance (over 3 days, forget the #s but 100s of thousands).


By contrast the show in El Centro is quite small and homey. Just drive in, park, walk over. Interesting/different military static displays, too. Lots of NATO units, who train/use ranges in AZ and NM, are represented. Always fun to talk with the British Apache crews (though some of the NCOs can be almost impossible to understand, divided as we are by a common language).


Last year was HOT (in March). Tomorrow's looking better - sunny and high of 77.

It was a useful tool for finding today's value. During the AR craze 5-6 years ago, good old-school guns went down as they were sold to make room for the SHTF guns.

585 Gilligan's Island was a really well written show, that knew it had an audience that would appreciate and understand "Hamlet" set to the music from Bizet's "Carmen." Even the routine episodes were very well constructed, because that was the norm back then.

Today? A sitcom consists of the characters insulting each other for twenty minutes. And...that's all. Because today's programmed SJW audience could not comprehend anything other than detailed maps of their own posteriors, and the various sores referenced therein.

There is no way, ever, that today's shows would ever reference anything older than two weeks ago.

One load is socks and underwear (whites to blacks.) Then five polo shirts. Three pairs of jeans. Dress slacks (3) and 3 dress shirts. One load of t-shirts (white unders with any colored hanging around the house tees.) So as intelligent and successful as he is, he separates by type, but not color or fabric.

Chi, so you want NGD to have the new disposal hard-wired into an existing junction box, "as is"?



Screw that. Get an outlet box installed while she's got the old
hard-wired opened up, and make it a "plug and play" option, from that
time forward.



Every.... EVERY SINGLE DAMN ONE of a new house on the market now,
has an outlet under the sink for the disposal connection. "Hard Wired"
from the switch to the disposal just isn't done any more. Unless some
obscure municipal code demands such, but that's not in keeping with NEC.



Can she stick with "hard wired" just like it is? Certainly. And
then she'll need another overpriced union rip off artist again in +/-
ten years time when that unit bites the dust.



It's worth the bother and minor extra expense to fix it right and set it up with the inevitable future in mind.

When we went out for a visit a few months ago, he showed me, with great pride, what he'd done with a broken-down washer I'd brought him.

Crazy bastard turned it into a chicken-plucker, and damned if it doesn't work a charm.

Not going to happen.

The current stress is due to the fact that the credentialed neo-gentry have decided that the average voter's power needs to be diluted to a ineffectual strength.

The Dems have strung along minorities into thinking it's an 'Us against Them' situation, subdividing citizens into ridiculously smaller and smaller boxes.

The GOPs have played the role of fiscal responsible parents who opened the entire candy store to all sorts of cronies and scam artists, thinking if they string along the fly-overs with culture war issues they can get away with accommodating the monstrous State and their comfy careers.

A black and white conflict couldn't be more ironic a frame in that it has so little to do with our problems as a Republic.

It's not in fact that 'black or white.'

Good people are found amongst wreckage and abandonment of civilization. Honest brokers of life and love will find salvation in this life, and the next.

Worry not, as God will guide you through your well-reasoned forethought into His guiding hands.

A soul founded in love and need will find grace. Our Lord does not abandon those who would help themselves to find His grace.

Those surrounded in faith and love will find necessity in safe harbor for those who seek it.

Abandon not your humanity during these times. Embrace your grace and find that those who seek salvation shall find it.

642 Alberta Oil.. small axe, say, 2o", so a big hatchet really.. they are made by Swedes that milk cows in the morning and raid England in their dreams. Strong and swarthy types. The steel is thick and heavy, but easy to hone... sharp as the teeth on the witch-hag that dwells in the dell. Hickory handle so stout it could break up a Chicago riot just by being shown. Balanced and natural in the hand. I was a looking at their bigger axes, but they are very expensive and I don't really NEED one... but I might... someday. Just sayin'.... if you're a likin' axes, check 'em out.

Thinking about same thing for my boss. She's been a wimp about most of our handguns - not recoil, but weight (!). Only one she likes is a Colt snub, but the double-action pull is hard for her.


So I'm thinking either .380 semi (she can work that kind of slide, probably), or a .22 revolver (or .22 Mag). Thinking only of self/home-defense here. Oh - and on that score, she loves the M1 carbine (who doesn't). Light and easy to shoot.


Still hopeful I can get her into trap shooting.

Probably the best thing you can do is talk sense to people. It's easy to whip people into frenzy. It's easier still to talk to them before that point.

People are inherently good. Never forget that. It's only in mob rule and mental sickness that inherent good becomes inherent evil. People avoid violence naturally. You have to train people to purposefully seek it out.

Just remember. Gods plan. Try as you might, you are really a leaf on the ocean.

The axe I gave my friend was a Norlund. Swedish axe, maybe 24" handle. I used it for years for staking mineral claims; blaze a trail along a compass bearing, and every 500 meters chop down a 6" pine tree and square the top of the stump, and nail on metal tags. No longer any need for it, and it pleased me to give it away.

Well, the top one sounds like my mom, but that was usually because she was half in the bag by the time she put the laundry in the washer.

Until I was in 7th grade, I had no white clothes. They were all white when new, but pink after the first wash. Whatever didn't get ruined in the wash got shrunk in the dryer.

I learned at that point that I needed to do my own wash. Plus I was playing sports in school and needed to have the stuff washed and dried for the next day. Better for me to do it than her.

There will not be a race war. Look at Baltimore, they let them riot and destroy their own neighborhoods while surrounded by the National Guard so the damage and violence would be contained. Same thing happened with Ferguson. Unfortunately, both Ferguson and Baltimore gave the BLM folks and their sympathizers a false sense of invulnerability. In a real all out "race" war, people with guns who do not want their property destroyed will shoot back, think Korean shop owners in LA.

Additionally, the race pimps like Sharpton and Jerry Rivers do not really want a war, they want nice contained riots that end on time with huge property losses and no one actually dying for the cause.

Ha!

#1 son has autism - he's a cheerful and communicative type, though, thank God.

Anyway, we had a therapist who used to come in twice a week to give him reinforcement and an expert's help to our own efforts.

One day, the therapist sat us down and said she didn't think it was a good idea to try toilet-training for him just yet. Which was absurd, of course.

The then future ex saw me clench my jaw. she looked at me, and gave me 'the nod,' meaning 'go ahead and do or say whatever outrageous thing is on your mind, because this chick's got it coming.'

'Look, lady,' I began. 'My son is a goddamned human being, isn't he?'

She blanched...

'And he's certainly smarter than my dog, right?'

'Well, if we can train that stupid fucking dog not to shit on the floor, I think we can do the same with our son. You don't think so, however, so I'm done with you.'

Good advice. Rule of thumb, southern/Texas cities have less of that crap in general, and we usually know how to behave in large groups in public without setting things on fire or breaking windows. Like whenever my Spurs win a championship, everyone (i.e., the Mexican-Americans and anglos who worship the tall black fellows on the team) goes downtown to party peacefully and the crime rate decreases.

But, Lord, she had a sense of humor.

Piss her off? She'd pull out both her hearing aids, point at the offender, and then turn them off before cramming them back in place again.

Posted by: Tammy al-Thor at March 12, 2016 12:38 AM (CNKtx)

I'll still consider the product, but often find myself discounting those reviews. Seems like when a company has a new product line, they give out those freebies, so if you go to newer reviews, they're more likely folks who paid for the product.
Getting it free seems to add at least one star.

808 781 It's all started to make sense. All of it. The republicrat party, faux news, Limbaugh, Levin, a whole bunch of blogs I've read for nearly a decade.

It was ALL just controlled opposition. Nothing more than a way to blow off steam and then trudge off to the "voting" booth and "vote" for the republicrat. Turns out they're both the same thing! Maybe the republicrat is a slightly slower train to oblivion than the democan but the difference is practically nil. At least the democans will give me an EBT card!

You assume that he wanted to heal the racial divide, he did not. He wanted to destroy America because he had been taught by his Mother and grandparents that the world needed America to be gone. In order to pull off all this Anti-American stuff, he had to hide behind his race to deny his critics a voice.

868 NDH, thanks for the heads-up on ace's new "welcome" to unpleasant newcomers in the side bar.


When he went to dinner earlier, he said he'd do another post later. Which, in context, as I noted in an earlier thread, had an ominous tone in itself. No surprise he has added some "guidance" for new commenters.


Maybe ace knows somehow, but I wonder really how much of the current unpleasantness is from new commenters. The most reliably annoying and insulting commenters here have been regulars - not regular regulars, but usually for some reason they drop in late in a thread and drop their silly condescension bombs. They also appear at other times, but not frequently.


Leaving the substance aside, the most annoying thing lately has been the insane persistence of a few commenters in prosecuting their (often unpersuasive) cases against a particular candidate. Over and over and over, the same stuff.


And worst of all are the binary star systems, with two commenters endlessly sparring, fighting over the same desolate ground - trees shattered, barbed wire fences torn and twisted, empty shell casings everywhere. Not even much vituperation in those, just the unbearably endless round-and-round ....

883 The free-for-all atmosphere around here is one of the best things about this blog. That being said, I don't think that uncontrolled immigration by HA refugees can go on forever without affecting the native culture. Some controls have to be put in place.

Anybody remember what it was like saying farewell to Calvin and Hobbes? Bloom County? Johnny Carson? At some point it is not worth it anymore, and the creative force simply packs it in. Ace cares about this place. He built it. But I suspect if the comment sections become an asylum for a bunch of irredeemable dicks, he can simply wash his hands of it and turn his talents to some other project.

Maybe ace knows somehow, but I wonder really how much of the current unpleasantness is from new commenters. The most reliably annoying and insulting commenters here have been regulars - not regular regulars, but usually for some reason they drop in late in a thread and drop their silly condescension bombs. They also appear at other times, but not frequently.


Leaving the substance aside, the most annoying thing lately has been the insane persistence of a few commenters in prosecuting their (often unpersuasive) cases against a particular candidate. Over and over and over, the same stuff.

Looking at the nics used, I think most of them are real trolls, not refugees. I started commenting at HA in 2006, eventually stopped, but kept reading ... many of the refugee nics do, in fact, disagree, and pointedly, but the trolls seem to be trolls. I see this in many other places where Trump / Not-Trump arguments occur.

There seems to be a serious Not-Trump effort, or maybe a few, and it/they are everywhere.

First firearm, actually was/is a Mosin Nagant carbine, M38 (in an M44 stock, as are most). Nothing special - 1944 Izhevsk. Reasonable shape, counter-bored.


First gun ever shot, however, was a 10/22 that, to my amazement, an older brother still has. Had to keep it for him for a while recently, it probably hadn't been shot in many years. Cleaned it up and shot it. Late 60s production, wood and bluing are quite a bit nicer than their equivalent today.

nope! He was repeatedly warned to stop posting in his way -- which was always off-topic, and included the very annoying trick of putting only a single sentence in a post, then writing down the page a long exegesis post-by-post, so that people could NOT scroll past him.

He was warned repeatedly to stop, but, since he never bothers to read anyone else's post, he did not.

so he was banned. I'm not even sure he knows he's banned.

If you think he's "funny" -- that's not him writing. Maet rigged the system to change his stupid, repetitive lunacies with silly, vulgar statements.

Posted by: Yip at March 12, 2016 01:21 AM (e7T6D)


Mostly I'm finding things that are sadly unfinished, like half-finished stories, abrupt quests, NPC relationships that just trail off or end suddenly, etc.

I haven't been able to get it running long enough at a stretch to rack up that many hours, and I already lost one (maybe two) characters to corrupt savegames.

I have come to the conclusion that Bethesda is made up of people with great talent who just can't be bothered to do things properly.

And NCJ, if you prefer a faster pace, FO4 has less RPG and story elements and more FPS elements, which also annoys me, because it's supposed to be an open-world RPG and it's a kind of open world FPS instead.

I could go on.

I left Tepid Air years ago because they were not as free-wheeling as this place, so my WAG is that most of them aren't the troll-like commenters. But maybe.

Because ace had to remind me that there actually are rules here once or twice, so perhaps a few need to be nudged to self-regulation like I was.

985 @960 It's clear to me that several parts of the game were rushed and weren't ready, but launched anyway. I think it will be a much better game in a couple of years. Bethesda , to me, appears to have suffered from compartmentalizing the game, so the meta-game suffers. It lacks cohesion... but then,.... so did NV to me, though I like the feel of NV better... but I remember how awful it was on release.

I've only finished the game once. The rest of them, I've just restarted a new character because the grind, prior to say lvl 45 , is much more fun than after 45. We'll see what the DLC adds. Lots of wasted potential, for sure... but , well.. expectations are a bitch. That's what they get for taking 4 years to do another game.

I had this a couple of years ago. Came on suddenly, without warning. Doctor said it could be a retina issue, but most likely it was just the peeling away of the inner layer of my eyeball, due mainly to age.

Well, if you can get it to run reliably (check the PC support forums at bethsoft), FO4 is kind of like that. Like 90% of the people in the game are either already enemies or just total a-holes anyway, so you can pretty much just go wacko.

I had duck confit. it was pretty awesome. Maybe the best meal i've ever had.

I also learned what the word "confit" means in french. I got to eat it. http://www.wordreference.com/fren/confit

(It's an oddball past participle so it was bothering me, knew it should be a past participle (like *baked* potatoes) but it didn't have a participle ending. Most past participles end in e (accent), i, or u. I forgot, a couple also end in -it.)

1047 Yes, those lasers and solar sails are a great idea for reaching low-relativistic speeds, and it would be great for sending gobs of tiny craft into interstellar space, for fly-by types of missions.

Anybody remember what it was like saying farewell to Calvin and Hobbes? Bloom County? Johnny Carson? At some point it is not worth it anymore, and the creative force simply packs it in. Ace cares about this place. He built it.

The shooting mechanic is just a thing that is not that exciting (it has its moments).

i stopped playing that because i don't like the sandbox type games. I want to just do something.

but I did hear with farcry 4, there's this hilarious way to win the game. in the very beginning, a very evil seeming guy orders you to stay in the room. of course someone says "Quick, let's leave before he comes back," and then you go through 30 hours of killing the evil seeming guy's men and ultimately killing him.

but if you listen to him -- and just stay in the room -- after ten minutes he comes in and gives you the deed to the entire country and says like "hey, thanks for waiting. Sorry it took so long. You're the king now."

go for a fps with scary shit or fantasy tossed in

Guys across the hall (math whizzes) used their Regent's Scholarship ($500 grant?) money to buy Lebanese hash. Big event when it arrived. Interesting group on that hall.


Guys got rather over-enthusiastic in their amateur agriculture (pot), the ones on the side facing west would put their plants in the windows in the afternoon. Chancellor lived across the street. Botanist! Quietly asked the resident advisor to ask the boys for more discretion.

Assassin's Creed Rogue uses that engine still. A slightly different setting (More of the Northern Atlantic) I didn't get it because Unity pissed me off. But Ubisoft should take that engine and make a more straight Pirate/Ship game.

Posted by: buzzion at March 12, 2016 02:04 AM (zt+N6)

1102 #1018: I've had that before. Good stuff!

There was once a really awesome restaurant near where I work. The Rocky Mountain Diner. Terrific food, good prices and big portions.

The Wynkoop Brewery, owned by then-shitty mayor of Denver and now shitty governor of Colorado, John Hickenlooper, decided to buy out the building where the RMD was renting its space, figuring they could do better or something. They evicted the RMD, and created their own shitty restaurant, called Ghost (because it was in the Ghost Building) in its place.

Here, let me tell you about their reuben, the worst reuben I've ever had... Pastrami, sweet pickled cabbage, gruyere cheese and tomato-dill aioli on rye.

That's not even a reuben! They got the bread right, and I'm okay if not enthusiastic about using pastrami instead of corned beef (because at least pastrami is made from corned beef), but everything else was flat-out wrong. Sweet pickled cabbage is no substitute for sauerkraut. Tomato-dill aioli is just pink mayonnaise. And that gruyere cheese... ugh. You know how when you first start chewing on a piece of gum, and it becomes so soft in the first few seconds as to have no actual texture, apart from "stretchy"? That's what the cheese was like.

Disgusting.

Well, that Ghost restaurant didn't last very long. Way to go, dipshits; you destroyed an awesome restaurant, thinking you could do better, and now you're making zero money off this long-vacant space you bought out.

-Every time these guys got-off high-quality gut-shots and beat us by milliseconds, they said:

"Sooo-rrrry". Not in a taunting fashion, (although it was), but in a uniformly-morose-unitone that Made Us Laugh Ourselves To Loss.

1128 there's a point in the first Drake game where the villain pulls the old "Who says you're more moral than I am?" thing where he asks you, "And how many men have you killed today, Drake?"

At that point in the game, I had killed over fifty men with a 9mm headshot *alone.* Several hundred more men killed with non-headshot 9mm kills, and hundreds killed with the machine-gun.

so like he kinda had a point i guess

They're all based on heart of darkness.

Far Crys 3 and 4 are so childish. Just spoonfeeding you every damn thing and they crammed every inch of the map with plants and animals and shrines and crap.

I want a pretty, smart, slow-paced, hard shooter with no 24 minute cutscenes and no hud and ammo conservation issues that ISNT a survival horror game.

1170 Not that it matters but since we're sharing, I kind of play paladinish characters. I guess I play typical movie heroes because culture. You know, mostly good guys who occasionally say something dickish but funny but always choose the moral end and yet somehow rack up a ridiculous bodycount anyway.

Though when I can, like Thief Deadly Shadows, I try for a zero body count, partly for challenge. A lot of games really don't allow that and it takes longer. The freaking music in that game was awesome.

Granted I never played multiplayer for 4 and have never played 5 but... that commercial with the spartans surfing on the snow basically let me know it's exactly the middle school game it looks like.

It is not an FPS, but one I was really surprised by was Witcher 3. Considering I can think of three games that tried to deal with father/daughter issues(Bioshock Infinite, Last of Us), I thought Witcher pulled it off best. Some of the cutscenes are extraordinarily well done. Their use of music is probably the best I have seen in a video game.

And the drinking night section should pretty much remind everyone of college. The Hat.

ctuhuhlluu, the year Saigon fell





Guys across the hall (math whizzes) used their Regent's Scholarship
($500 grant?) money to buy Lebanese hash. Big event when it arrived.
Interesting group on that hall.





Guys got rather over-enthusiastic in their amateur agriculture
(pot), the ones on the side facing west would put their plants in the
windows in the afternoon. Chancellor lived across the street.
Botanist! Quietly asked the resident advisor to ask the boys for more
discretion.





Thursday nights were usually acid night. Guys would go down to the
beach and "drive" those rocks that are exposed at low tide near Campus
Point.





Posted by: rhomboid at March 12, 2016 02:04 AM (QDnY+)


I was there starting about four years later. Word was, "yeah, you can get busted for pot....for growing it on the balcony across from the Chancellor's residence...." I used to keep my beer in a dorm fridge down the hall....owned by the hall's biggest head. I'd frequently have to dig through baggies of 'shrooms to extract it. And the rocks at Campus Point were where my perception of recreational drug use were thoroughly changed literally overnight.


My roommate and I were orbiting out there, since that's what you did. We had just run between waves across the shallow channel to the larger rock, and were walking along its edge, him in the lead, when he said, "ark."

Naturally, I said, "what?" -- which meant that he stopped and turned around. Somewhat irritated, he replied: "I didn't say anything." I insisted, "I heard you say 'ark'."

Now, there is a phenomenon when you ingest certain amounts of certain substances that you can focus your attention to an unnatural degree. It seems like you can listen to a symphony and clearly hear the second violin part. While wandering around a moonlit night on rocks, your attention, alone, can make it seem like a spotlight is illuminating a particular spot.

And, when we turned to look, about 40 inches ahead of the roomie, there was a baby sea lion on the rock. Two steps, and Josh may have stepped on it. "Oh, shit," I said, "a sea lion."

Whereupon Josh gets all mush-brained and goes, "awwwww....a seal....." and starts moving towards it. I grabbed his shoulder and spun him around and said, "Josh, look how small it is." and he goes, "awwwww.....a baby seal...." and starts to crouch over to fucking pet it. So, I spun him around again, and declared, "Josh, this is a baby sea lion, and it would be very bad if mom shows up. We've got to get out of here, and we've got to get out of here NOW."

....and that was the last time I ever felt I could get wasted around people. I couldn't be the one getting stupid, which meant I couldn't go "all-in".

All the best single-player games were made over a decade ago. It used to be possible to spend literally a summer trying to beat a game. In the 80s and 90s, there were popular games you'd buy with the understanding that you had a greater chance of becoming Pope than beating the game.

I haven't played in a while, but out of the ones I did, you could beat even the popular ones in a few days. It just seemed like a waste.

It really depends on the type of game you are playing. Grand strategy games (Crusader Kings 2, Hearts of Iron 3) can give you 100s of hours on a single playthrough with a lot of fun.

If you want nut busting difficulty, you could always try the Demon/Dark Souls games.

AS far as the rest, I would also point out that the story lines in modern games are FAR superior to almost anything that came out 16 years ago (the Black Isle and Fallout games are exceptions.) Hell, Half-Life was a revelation because it was an FPS that I can remember thinking of at the time as playing like a movie.

I remember playing the first Final Fantasy on the nes. The fact that it was over 40 hours blew my childhood mind. I remember playing the first Ninja Gaiden and getting to the final boss and then starting over.

If you're interested in high difficulty games like in the 80's I suggest the Demon's Soul series. Very difficult but lots of fun.

1219 I have not played 3 yet, but FarCry 2's story was so hopeless and depressing Dostoevsky's ghost broke down and cried watching someone play it.

I don't even care that much about gameplay when the story is *that* much of a downer.

The Mass Effect series were pretty good *games*, though they massively screwed the pooch storywise (moreso than you'd even know playing the 3rd game, there was a lot of crap on the forums and they even killed off characters on *twitter* for crying out loud).

The first one is a little dated now.

I really want a new non-apocalypse sci-fi game. How many years overdue is Star Citizen?

A few years ago there was a guy who specialized in pet photography who traveled around in a van that was a mobile photo studio. I found him at my local PetsMart. I took my cats in to be photographed. It cost a couple hundred dollars and was worth it. He did a good job. Leo died a year later and those are by far the best photos I have of him.

If you're interested in high difficulty games like in the 80's I suggest the Demon's Soul series. Very difficult but lots of fun.

The Final Fantasy and Dragon Warrior series took up a significant amount of my childhood. If I had discovered Ultima early on, you probably would have had to hook me up to an IV.

And then there was Ghosts 'n Goblins. If we could find the person who actually beat that game, I'd consider offering him the Presidency.

Mass Effect is great as long as you ignore the ending of 3 and not get in discussions online about it.

Games in general seem to be going through a George RR Martinizing (dark, gritty, downer, no nobility, etc.)

That is one thing that surprised me about Witcher 3. The game does have somewhat of a mixed bag as far as messages and story beats, but the main story I thought was pretty damn solid on the uplifting scale.

cthulhu, actually I only ever drank. Never touched the rest of the
smorgasbord of stuff. I was impressed with the serious heads on that
hall. I'd be struggling, dragging myself to Russian at 9AM, and they
were doing bong hits (often of very high-grade stuff, I guess). I
couldn't even get myself up to eat, and they were already consuming.





Trying remember the occasion, but one night as a prank some group
filled an entire bathroom with kelp, up to about waist height. That's a
lot of kelp. Not many colleges where that prank is an option.

Let's just say that I was relatively restrained. That said, our dorm hall came up with "The Green Death" -- a layered drink in a shotglass that had 60-proof green Creme de Menthe on the bottom, clear 100-proof Schnapps in the middle, and straw-colored 151-proof Bacardi rum on top. The difference in proof meant that you could assemble one even when quite hammered. Toss one of those down and things were "minty fresh".

So, he asks to see a picture of her "husband" and she pulls out a picture of a burly motorcycle biker chick, in leather, on her Harley.

Save often in 2. There's a texture bug where you get stuck on low obstacles. Also, consider a Soldier in 2, Vanguards are bugged as Hell (but work perfectly in 3). I had to give up the class as I couldn't target enemies half the time.

Lots of inventory management in 1. Use omni-gel often, you will get *lots* of it.

They actually break and half-ass a *lot* of story in 3, but the game still has a lot of good moments. Bioware were complete *asses* about fan reaction, the forums were hell during that, and they added a "new ending" to the game that was basically a middle finger to the people complaining.

They have to jump over a pretty high bar for me to even look at a BW game now.

The trilogy is still enjoyable (despite the Everything Button problem - console port), it just ends before it ends.

It's too bad they slipped so badly, I *loved* the game universe.

Yeah, they are turn based combat games. Stay away from The Bureau XCOM: Declassified. They best/only thing I got from preordering that one was getting all of the previous xcom games on steam.

However, it is a turn based game. You have a roster of soldiers who grow and learn based on what happens. They can also die. They can be wounded. There are 4-5 different classes. You start out only being able to take 4 per mission, which can be expanded to 6 as the game goes on.

I like XCOM: Enemy Unknown/Within and XCOM 2 a lot.

3 added that layer of difficulty by way of the command structure that made things more difficult. I actually spent something like 4 hours one time restructuring my entire military to get the benefit that being inside range of the various levels of command structure would bring.

I have a friend who played Eliteangerous. Definitely mixed reviews, though he said *I* would hate it. Long story.

Used to play X3 a lot, but it's tedious and though beautiful the story is barely there.

...

Planescape/BG are games I dither about remakes. With the right engine, they should probably be remade. They are kind of a PITA but you can run them on modern hardware. The gameplay is very dated, the stories are great.

It's too bad Bethsoft's engine is so colossally buggy, most engines don't support all the features you need (though it looks like the newest Unreal engine is plugintastic in that regard - you *could* make it do what's needed with enough scripting).

I saw somewhere where some fans are trying to remake Knights of the Old Republic with a modern, FPS engine (think it is the unreal engine.) Disney is going to come down on them like a hammer. If they were smart, they would make the game themselves.

1286 I had spent around 3 years game time building up for the war.

Posted by: Aetius451AD at March 12, 2016 03:09 AM (iHjB5)

Yeah. It went from building Divisions to form Corps up to Armies to building Brigades to form into Divisions. The building process is what turned me off of that version.

Did you have a favorite Nationality to play? I always choose the losers. Poland, France, Italy, Romania, or Hungary.

Try playing Poland from 1936 and build a force that can last past November 39.

Maybe I am lame at the game but when you play at difficulty and on very fast, thats the best I could do.

In 2, most "countdown timers" between story missions (we should go do this soon) are not very meaningful, the "special gate" countdown near the end (you'll know) *does actually matter*.

I hate when games train you to ignore something and then hit you with it.

Also, do everything you can and talk to everyone you can. There's lots of cool stuff, especially in 2.

Be prepared to go back a few saves before the end if it matters to you how well you do the ending, you have to set up for it. I had to do it 3 times the first time. 'lil perfectionist at times.

Understandable but sad. There's nearly unlimited potential with that franchise and it's being tapped really slowly.

I would also like a Stargate MMO, heavy on SP/story (like SWTOR), possibly with a player running a whole team. Not repeating the whole Stargate thing from the series, but either after it timewise or maybe restarting the story with the 1940s gate opening from canon lore or the 1990s.

I guess that covers all the bases, either the same or later or earlier, heh.

Anyway Stargate also had the whole "unlimited options" thing going for it.

That's a good rule for them - also "talk to everyone, do everything." Some of it is irrelevant, of course.

*Some* of it carries over to later games in the series, so people mention events, they change events, characters may not be there.

If you totally FUBAR #2, for example, you don't play Shepard in the third game!

DLC also affect story for future games.

People hate DLCs but run 90s game prices forward with inflation and an AAA title would be like $100. So there's that.

I am somewhat burned out on MMOs. I played Secret World recently and thought it was pretty good, but the story kind of petered out because the dev team kind of lost funding when the game went FTP.

I wish they could make a good MMO that would be able to deliver good content on a longer term basis. I would be willing to pay for it.

I have heard good things about SWTOR. I played it when it first came out, but lost interest when I finished the game. The end game content at the time was pretty sparse so I did not guild up in order to do it. Still, what there was of it seemed pretty good.

You are welcome. Like Aetius, I am a little OCD on games, and like things to turn out the best they can.

Mass Effect was the first series I actually gave a **** about in-game romances (that I remember), they did a good job though carryover was spotty from game to game.

Whatever other DLC you miss get the Shadow Broker for 2, seriously.

I wish they would discount the DLCs but they never do, I have most of them.

Posted by: Merovign, Dark Lord of the Sith at March 12, 2016 03:26 AM (bLnSU)

SWTOR, like most, great at the beginning and rapidly turns grindy. A lot of MMOs difficulty curves assume you are min-maxing and optimizing pretty heavily, if you're just goofing off you get burned eventually (Star Trek Online).

Elder Scrolls Online is like that, though I think it ages better. The story is pretty dense. It gives you the choice to play classless but punishes you to an extent, which sucks because I DO WHAT I WANT (elven sorceress with two-handed sword and heavy armor).

I am also kind of an anti-social MMO player, I play with a couple of friends IRL or I play alone, mostly the latter.

I also make too many damned characters, which multiplies the grind.

LOL that's so true. If you like to replay you can try both. You can be a real skeeze and do both (sort of) in 1.

Also there are more than two choices, especially for replays in 2 and 3, though like I said you can be limited badly in crossing from one game to another by plot.

Citadel is pretty extreme fan service, but you can get most of the value from it from YouTube.

Sounds like Slap has them all. I don't want to spend $60 to get the few I don't have.

It's also butt-ass annoying I have 1 and 2 on steam and 3 on Origin because that's the way the marketers bounce.

1334 I was a moderate Starcrafter, never got into C&C, can't remember if I found it annoying overall or something specific.

I don't think anyone has quite got the hang of Blizzard's early mastery of the genre, everything else seems a little too fussy or complicated or micromanagey.

I would like a good not-overly-fussy RTS.

Endless Legend is *AMAZING* and has cool story stuff, but steep learning curve and a bit fussy.

Warlock: The Something is funny and fun but only on some settings and it can be fussy too.

On the other hand I got a freaking Vorpal Bunny as a random ally, so there's *that*.

That actually is "a thing", but I'll get over it. I played Q-Bert and Gorf on stand-up machines.

1347 "My first gun? I was twenty-nine and a boyfriend gave it to me as a "Welcome to Texas" present when I moved to Houston in 1975.
Why are you making me go through such horrible mental exercise in the middle of the night? I'm usually lucky to remember yesterday.

Nobody is making you go through anything, darlin'. Consider yourself lucky that you can remember things from thirty-five years ago.

I know my name and I have no experience in math.

I am dummy.

You are lucky.

Love you, darlin'!

...stay lucky!

1348 Marvel Heroes wouldn't let me register my e-mail.

I took it as a sign.

1349 G'Night, Jean.

1350 Actually any e-mail.

I think they knew I had a DC Universe Online account (haven't touched in forever) and hated me for it.

The only good thing about that game (well, mostly) was you could fly around and check out most of the world without leveling up, just to see things.

I'm an explorer at heart.

*HAH!*

That's top-notch comedian shit, right there!

-I was going to be a Super-Hero, but they didn't accept my email address.

I made a comic about that and it had the "Half-Invisible Man" siting beside "The Dental Cowboy".

One was half-invisible, (of course), and the other had a molar as a "crown". His cape read, "Dental Health".

-Failed Super-Hero Bar-

It was inspired by Far Side cartoons, because why wouldn't it be?

It was so good talking to you again!

Bless you and thank you for those Gaming Tips!

Have a Good night, Amigo!

1359 Been a looong time since I've seen a Big-Grand-Plus thread. (Other than an election thread.)

I'm happy to have been a part of this ONT and it was nice to talk to people who like to play video games without those who would make ridiculous bullshit of it.

Misanthropic, Ace and Maet are to thank for a quality thread and a clean ONT.

-Thank You.

LMAO. Thanks for that.

1363 Good news, katya.

While I wouldn't recommend every clinic there, UIHC's Eye Clinic may be the best in the nation. Keep them in mind.

Posted by: creeper at March 12, 2016 05:28 AM (eBsWa)

1364 Katya, you did exactly right w/r/t your vision issue. Please keep us posted. I just ran the scenario where you didn't get it checked and I ended-up totally freaked.

1369 Thanks, Slapweasel. Sorry for the whine. That's what waking up at 2:00 AM does to me.

Oh, and BTW, it was a Star 1911 .380.

1370 Nood.

Thank dog this one's over. I can't believe I read the whole thing.

Posted by: creeper at March 12, 2016 06:13 AM (eBsWa)

1371 Okay. The Most Interesting Man in the World. I've seen that face on the internet since forever. It has only been posted and referred to as a meme. I've never seen a TV ad with that guy, in the few Dos Equis ads I've seen over the past 25 years. So maybe it's a print thing. Really? Who the fuck reads Time or Newsweek or Us or People. Assholes. Put crap like this on an asshole blog. Don't waste my time.
