  • So the other day I saw my sister-in law, niece and nephews in the drive-thru lane behind me and I paid for their order as I got mine. I asked her today if she enjoyed her free meal the other day or paid it forward and she said she didn't get a free meal that day...I'm torn between whether my sister-in-law is a liar or whether the drive thru guy brazenly stole from me.
    Hope you're doing well!

    Pretty good actually; new house, new job (two mile walk through the woods away from the new house, so no gas for commute which is awesome right now) that isn't likely to leave me crippled by 40. It's been a weirdly optimistic year for me personally all things considered so far. How are you doing these days?

    Just because you can animate something doesn't always mean you should.

    I mean this is basically how you get situations like what happened with Halyna Hutchens or Brandon Lee, the "its not real so it doesn't matter" mindset eventually can and demonstrably does lead to real world harm. Sloppy mindset when it doesn't technically matter will easily turn into a sloppy mindset when it does, and you won't know it until after you've screwed up and possibly caused something horrible to happen.

    The Gubment audited my boss and now I have to take lunch breaks every day. :( Stupid bureaucrats I understand it being a law that they have to offer them but if I want to work through lunch so I can get off an hour early why should anyone care?
    Watched a video of a kid in China leaning against a giant ceramic teletuby statue (valued at nearly $4000 apparently) in a toy store and everyone arguing whether it's the parents or the store's fault. I'm just sitting up wondering why anyone would make a giant ceramic toddler toy in the first place other than to deliberately cause exactly that from happening in the first place though.

    Nowadays you cannot grab the kid's wrist too hard cause you risk being called out, cancelled and whatnot :kaosigh:

    @gstv87 generally I agree. But seriously what is a ceramic $4000 dollar tellituby even existing for in the first place? No one in their right mind would buy such a thing for a toddler, and no one in their right mind aside from a toddler would have any interest in the thing. Plus while it did have a sign it wasn't anchored to anything and was just standing out in the open freeform.

    If a toddler leaning up against a statue (not pushing, pulling or anything) is enough to topple it and shatter it into millions of pieces the heck was it doing there? Kind of just seems staged for the result gotten to be honest.

    Almost cut my finger off washing a beaker today, got nine stitches. The good news is one of my coworkers used to be a nurse practitioner so no hospital.

    I'll do just about anything to get out of setting foot in a hospital. Was pondering if I could stitch it myself one handed when I remembered he could do it for me. Whatever kills me you could probably put "died because he wouldn't go to the hospital" on my tombstone and have it be accurate and I am 100% at peace with that.

    Oh believe me, I hate the hospital too. Even before the trauma associated with it occurred.
    I lived my whole life never knowing that Disney world is essentially an independent city-state operating autonomously from local laws, at least the one in Florida is (for now).

    Kind of weird. When they said they were the magic kingdom it seems they weren't actually joking.

    I kind of want to make a Disney civilization mod now; make them kind of like Venice but with a tourism focus rather than trade. But Disney wouldn't stand for that and would copyright strike it from the workshop faster than it could be downloaded probably.

    yeah they built a whole town everyone loved it until the Disney themed music played outside everyday and the only movies in the theater was Disney movies. Then one day everyone's houses needed repaired B/C spotty work. Disney's dream town turned into a nightmare. Even after the town failed they still cashed out, a big success.
    Picked a dumb time to pop in here, I'll come back when everyone is over thinking a check box that most people aren't ever going to bother looking at anyway's existence is worth the keystrokes it takes to articulate an opinion about.

    This my position on it. lol. I've yet to look at anyone's profile, so I really don't know anyone's claimed gender on here. It's inconsequential to me, and plays no part in my interactions with others on here or elsewhere on the internet.
    Out of all the countries that I might have thought would devolve into totalitarian martial law one of the last I'd have guessed would have been Canada. Weird world.

    How do you know that masked uniformed troops without any identification aren't soldiers though? You know the police chief resigned a couple of days ago, rumor has it as much as a third of the rank and file did as well, so where are all the bodies coming from.

    Beyond that it is again overly pedantic. Renaming the wartime powers act which is Canada's legal version of martial law to the emergency act and claiming that it isn't really martial law because they aren't putting boots on the ground is disingenuous. Boots on the ground isn't necessary, martial law is military authority usurping civil law, and that is implicitly what the wartime/emergency powers act does.

    ATT, dude. I like you, but that's a bit weaksauce. We know what is generally meant by 'martial law' and using the civil end of government force falls within that understanding. Cutting short civil liberties of citizens through use of government force for the purpose of that government's goals is adjacent enough to the term to be understood for what it is.
    Idea for when you have easy mode: Consider making individual multipliers for whatever functions the modes tweak the player can tweak to their liking. Ex damage enemies do and damage player deals.

    I can't tell you how many modern games I wish there were an option to keep all of the ways the hardest mode tweaked ai and enemy behavior and damage and the like but turn the modifier for how many hits it takes to kill the enemies down to normal or lower so the whole game isn't just 4/5 chipping random mobs for ten minutes straight.

    So I scarred my nephew for life maybe last night. We're sitting down to a fried chicken dinner and he suddenly asks where Bartholomew is. (Bartholomew was a chicken he played around with and fed last time he was here).
    I can't stop buying resource packs I'll never use, or engines for that matter, or free resources as my two terabyte external will attest. I am a digital hoarder I guess. Some people get drunk off the silly juice when they are bored, I just buy shiny digital nonsense I don't need.
    Went to the doctor because I was actually sick and it was covered over with healthy people from a factory shift who all had to get negative covid tests to go back to work because one of their shift mates got it. Waited for several hours to find out that my low-grade fever, chills, light-headedness and fatigue were in fact covid...

    It sounds like the workers should have gotten drive-up tests or quick swab tests instead of going to the doctor.
    Philosophus Vagus
    Philosophus Vagus
    There is so much demand for tests here because (according to the factory workers anyway) ithas become standard practice for employers to require everyone to get tested who was around anyone who gets sick, so you can't find the home tests and only the clinics have the rapid tests at this point because they are being rationed...
    Philosophus Vagus
    Philosophus Vagus
    which funnels healthy people into direct contact with the sick and makes the sick wait around for hours while doctors test healthy people, which makes no sense. I thought it was hilarious when they shuffled me out the back and wouldn't let me leave through the lobby, like they hadn't kept me sitting there for hours prior to testing me.
    I really wish that hollyweird would just leave books alone. Think I'd learn my lesson, but no, I had to see the WOT adaptation for myself, and my life is now a little bleaker for having seen it, and I cannot unsee it.

    I'll be honest, I live amongst nature and knew it can be a *****, but I didn't realize it could be that bad. I mean these monkeys literally enacted a dog genocide because of the actions of one dog, there are no more dogs in that village or the surrounding areas now, ****'s just crazy.
    Someone left a filleting knife on top of my ac unit that's directly under my window. Nothing's cut, just a beat up (but keenly sharpened) filleting knife sitting on the box when I get home. Already had a break in last year too, maybe I should move.

    I remember you saying you lived in one of those old white house mansion thingies, forgot their proper name. You do them up and sell them, right? Maybe they thought you were filthy stinking rich. It's a long way to go to burgle someone's home without having info on the place first, though.

    I don't understand people sometime. Walking to work today came across someone walking the opposite way in a nice suit, I politely move to the side into the shrubbery so he doesn't have to get his suit dirty and say "good morning" as he passes me, he turns around glaring daggers and asks "why are you talking to me?" like he's bloody offended by me wishing him a good morning or something. Just, why?
    The office manager at my work finds it hilarious that I like to "work in the dark". I don't get it, the lab has two huge bay windows facing the sunrise, what is so odd about enjoying natural light in the mornings rather than fluorescents, is that really so odd or quirky?

    "Why do you work in the dark?"
    "........because the light intensity of the screen I'm staring at pales in comparison to that of the fluorescent lights put over it to illuminate the rest of my work station, therefore forcing me to over exert my sight fighting the glare?"

    full explanation.
    always provide the full explanation.... people can't handle it.
    The Stranger
    Wait, they think a room bathed in the full glory of the rising sun is working in the dark? I could understand them asking such a question if night had fallen and you, for whatever reason, didn't turn a light on.

    Funny they call that darkness when i worked at an office i used to work in real dark, turned off the lights and added a dimmer overlay to lower screen brightness a lot :kaoswt2:

Being hit with nostalgia for something that's gone is both a great thing and so sad.

But being a creative means having ideas for bringing stuff back to life, which can be frustrating and rewarding in it's own right.
