HOLY CRAP

Ive been on light duty since it happend. It took two surgeries but its not looking too bad.

~sigh~

Well I know what I am going to be having nightmares about now...


Heat takes a lot out of me I guess. I slept between 8 and 9 hours last night. But a full week at work with no air... damn. By Friday I was standing in front of the industrial fan we set up because 90 degree wind tunnel is nicer than 90 degree stale air. So by the time I went home my hair was a disaster between the wind and the sweat it was like I had spent the day racing a convertible in the heat without a head scarf. And I was so hot I didn't care. But I am nice and clean and cool this morning relaxing in my air conditioned house with nothing to do but play video games.

(my normal sleep time is between 4 and 6 hours for those who don't know.)

No opinion on Batman vs Superman?

It was the most enjoyable movie I have watched that I find utterly unmemorable.

You know what might be good for a D&D movie.

Have them cut back and forth as the movie plays out between the people playing the game and the actual characters. You could be meta and hilarious while the main plot stays serious. Just like the magic of sitting down with friends at a table.
So...like the Gamers series of movies by Dead Gentlemen? Which are hilarious.

Yeah similar but with a big budget and top notch actors. Also in Gamers the in game is just as goofy as the out of game, it might be fun to see a juxtaposition serious against meta.


~posts an amusing link~

Pokemon Go is totalitarianism

Hmmm... It's July isn't it time for Freehold to switch on his weather dominator and send in a blizzard?

Because burgers are a lunch food.

And yeah I am weird and made a burger for breakfast.


I wonder if I haven't been over complicating my food...
I accidentally forgot the sauteed mushrooms and swiss for my burger. So I just used the sauteed onion, chopped romain lettuce, and mayo. It turned out delicious. Perhaps even better than if I had added the mushrooms and swiss?

Does anyone know if anyone in the anime industry is going to start putting titles out in 4k or 8k resolutions?

* Shrug

4k is ploy to make you buy a new TV and sell more LCD glass. Unless your eyes are waaaay on the outer edge of human capability or you are sitting so they're a foot or two from the screen (and quite likely both) you'll never notice the difference between 1080p and 2160p.

If like most people your eyes are five to ten feet from the screen, spend the money on a OLED screen with better electronics rather than the 4k one.

I was at a demo comparing a 4K TV to a standard TV. I thought the standard TV looked better, and that was close up. You could see a little difference in resolution, but I thought the color balance wasn't as good, which is where they are supposed to really shine from what I understand.

4k displays only inherent "advantage" over 2k displays is the resolution. Often they have better electronics because they're high end sets, but just as often they don't. OLED (not LED, those are still LCD panels) displays have much better pictures.

Usually at those demos you're unnaturally close and the 2k display is correctly calibrated, if not calibrated with washed out colore and such while the 4k is setup with the back light cranked up and the brightness and colors way over done.

I was watching a demo from 5 to 10 feet away comparing the two and the 4k was massively superior. I could pick out individual books on a book shelf in the background on 4k while the 1080p the books exact edges were unclear. Besides I want to upgrade from my old 720p set and 4k seems the smarter buy long term.

One of these days I should go back and watch ALL of Brotherhood... It's just hard when the random episodes I have seen are entwined with memories of my boyfriend who loved playing it when I was over.

The air at work gets fixed at the end of the week... Oh dear... It's going to get horrible.

Interesting news. I loved Char's Counterattack. I will add it to my collection.

You aren't supposed to tell them about the squirrel it's a secret.


I have a bad habit of miss timing things, the Keurig is a machine it brews the same every time. And a fancy tea pot seems like too much in my growing pile of countertop appliances.


Can you get Imperial Green Tea for a Keurig I wonder?

Yeah Lipton is nasty. But nothing against tea bags I use tea bags. I prefer jasmine, green tea, or chai; the bags are just convenient.

Ok I get the hint. I will add them to my reading list.

I saw this all over Facebook a few days ago. Seems everyone I knew was sharing the article. Looks kick ass, especially for the price.

Wasn't this done by Atari and Intellivision already a year or two ago?


Hey is this the point where the Rebels get their Y wings? It looked like it. And the Black Mandalorian lightsaber from the Clone Wars is back too!
~Squeeee!!!~


I don't know much about Thrawn... But he sure is scary.
I can't wait.

There's a lot of unbelievable crap in Terminator Genisys, but the most unbelievable is that a man and woman as good looking as the actors playing Kyle and Sarah have a son as ugly as the actor playing Jon (even without the scar).

~laughing~

This is what I call putting TOO much emphasis on realism. After all most people playing the children of others fail to match every detail that should mark them out. Best simply to accept what is and ignore the imperfect genetics. I can imagine the fury of casting directors everywhere if people insisted on this level of realism.

Curses have you no respect for my free time?! I am already addicted to Extra Credits and NOW you get me started on Extra History! Noooo!!! Why must I be an information junkie? Why must my fixes be offered to me in such a neat irresistible fashion?

But the chance of some catastrophe destroying the amulet approaches 100% as you get closer to infinity.
Until you add in magic, then the chance goes down really low.

Does it? Is there a spell that makes something indestructible? Say a war starts that sees the use of nuclear weapons, if your amulet is in one of the vaporized cities then it's gone. Say in a million years the sun goes supernova Earth (and your amulet) are gone.

A lich doesn't have an infinite lifespan their lifespan is directly tied to how long the phylactery lasts. A metal amulet set with stone or crystal will last a very long time if cared for... But the chance of some catastrophe destroying the amulet approaches 100% as you get closer to infinity.

It depends on the game actually.
In the case of MMORPGs there is a TON of other MMORPGS to switch to. Give someone a buggy experience they might lose a few players (no big deal as you say people are used to the bad quality) but give them a crap time a LOT and you will only have a handful of die hard fans left. MMOs come and go rapidly this will hurt them if they can't keep it from being the norm.

You're ahead of me I am still working on my 4 th. play through. 2 infiltrators, 1 soldier, and this time a sentinel. I do have a good grasp now of which biotic and tech powers I like.

I have a question:

What does FaWtL mean?
Thanks.
Forums Are Way Too Long. It was the title of the original thread started by someone complaining about well, the forums being too long. And being the perverse crowd that we are, we made it into the longest thread possible. Until it had to be moved to a new thread and so on. This is the sixth one.

Hmmm... started by IssacX who only ever made 2 posts. The second one being the start post for FaWtL. I suspect the original crew frightened him away.


I definitely recommend over doing it on the sunscreen. It is totally ok if you didn't get quite enough of a tan you can always get more sun later. However if you get TOO MUCH sun then you end up with sun damaged skin and that doesn't look good. No fixing that.

Then did the New Starters come before the Supervisor, and they spake with one voice.

"O Captain", quoth they, "What rainment must we wear when we labour in thy service?"

And the Supervisor answered them, saying: "Robes of white mayest thou wear; also robes of scarlet, robes of purple and robes of divers hues. With whatsoever garment thy heart desireth mayest thou clothe thy bodies, e'en as thy voices are sent out to the four corners of the earth via the medium of analogue telephony"

Then up and spake one of the New Starters; quoth she: "Then I shall wear the Pants of Sweat, that do clingeth to me as the vine doth cling to the slopes of Mount Sphandekh, and also the Bra of Sports, that is wrought of the skin of that rare beast named Lycra, or Bouncy Penguin. Thus shall I be inspired to perform Great Feats of Acrobatics, and also display my Enviable Tattoos, e'en as my voice is sent out to the four corners of the earth via the medium of analogue telephony"

And the Supervisor waxed wroth, saying: "I meant not that -"

But the New Starters answered: "With thy lips did thou shape those words; with thy tongue did thou utter them, saying that we might wear whatsoever garments our heart desireth, and thou canst no more take them back than the bird might sport in the depths of the ocean, or the fish make merry amongst the clouds"

And the Supervisor could make no reply to this, merely saying, "So Mote It Be", remarking privily afterwards that she was not running an Academy for those who might dance around a pole, to the Glory of the Author of Lusts.

It was a response to this Doomkitten... I didn't intend for it to get chopped to a separate page.

When I finished watching Aethetica of a Rogue Hero - which I did purely because of the two-minute crossover omake it had with Queen's Blade Rebellion - I found myself wanting to know whom to call to demand back the five hours of my life that I'd wasted.
Let's be fair... If after 1~2 hours you still didn't know it was a waste of time, it's your own fault for watching the next 3~4! XD
Oh, I knew. But I do my damnedest to always finish what I start, if for no other reason so that I can assert that I know what I'm talking about when I tear it a new one later.

Torturing yourself for credibility? Are you a professional?

Ouch. I found a solution to that though when one of my teeth broke. Advil Migraine pain killers. The stuff works amazing on all but two kinds of pain; back injuries or Crohn's both of which defy any pain killers.

I love my niece but
Me : "Where are you going?"
Niece: "I have to find this Pokemon." she replies as she goes wandering away holding her phone.
Me : "I didn't know you played Pokemon?"
Niece: "I don't."
Me : "..."

No. Generally, recognition of competence in a retail job is immediately followed by being expected to do more work and be more responsible (in the meaning of becoming a better bullseye for blame) for little or no increase in pay. Or worse, getting "promoted" into a salary managerial position with longer hours... which actually decreases per hour wages.

Far better to fly nap of the earth, avoiding notice by doing the job without drawing attention.

No one told me this when I went salaried...

Still if I could find a way to get less hours then it is good money.

Ok I see your point now... But let us put the his on the other side and you can see how it sounds.

If a few atheists felt that since they are the highest authority on right and wrong that killing or stealing from people they don't like is good. And then someone using that in an argument saying atheism is bad because it believes like that. See the parallel here, religion is bad because it fights against protected status for trans people is what I am hearing.


1 person marked this as a favorite.

Mekkis that is funny!

What I don't get is why people WANT to assign blame to a whole religion based on a few people's ideas. There are Christian liberals, they are in favor of this special protection for trans people. BUT it's the Christian conservatives SO it's a religious thing! As if to say everything these guys do is a religious thing from the time they get up to their choice of breakfast cereal. If right wing Christians are fighting left wing Christians on any issue it should be your first clue that it ISN'T religious, it is Right Wing vs Left Wing.

Ohhh I love collections people.
I will eagerly answer and then ignore their demands and proceed to use their captive presence to rant on endlessly about the company they are collecting for. Usually by the second call they learn to avoid me.

It's win-win! I win by having someone to b~~*$ at over a bad situation who is being PAID to have to listen and The other soul they would have called wins because the poor agent is stuck on the phone with me.

I hope things go better for you Freehold. Google maps is way better than the silly GPS nav stuff that came before it. It's all I use now.

I guess the resounding silence on my earlier question says it all ... Yes I am being selfish and people are just too polite to point it out. ~sigh~ I guess I should get the nice guy a gift or do something nice for him as a proper thank you.
