It's funny how most crime dramas nowadays rely on a tech expert who commits multiple felonies per episode to catch felons. The future maybe? Apr 21, 2018 at 12:37 PM

        My favorite ones are when they get DNA and court orders in less then 24 hours or when a techie is just able to ZOOM and ENHANCE to get clearer pictures from grainy video footage.

        It'd be a bit hard to portray realistic crime-busting as some crimes don't get solved for months at the earliest and some go cold for years before being solved, but does get a bit aggravating when they don't even use the right methods.

      New dog is a rabbit killer, poor bunny. Made a tasty stew at least, better than letting him leave it in the dirt. 1st time off leash failed.

        Have you considered enrolling your dog in the martial barks? Maybe they will learn some discipline!

        He will be disciplined, I can't have an unpredictably violent dog, he must only be violent when it's acceptable. Good that I know he has it in him though, I'm not a fan of hunting but I might train him as a bird dog if he continues to show an aptitude and drive towards hunting. Quail are tastier than chicken after all.

      Whenever I befriend anything but dogs it never ends well for either of us. A pointless, sad cycle that I'm always too foolish not to repeat.

        If we don't reflect on those, then we generally repeat the same pattern when we get close to the same types of people. It's often why people's relationship history repeats itself, as they keep dating the same type of person every time and getting the same outcome.
        Either way, I hope things get better and you don't give up. :)

        There are friendships of different levels, they don't all have to be very close. People come together for various needs & some ppl (when their needs change) drop their friends & move to something else.
        It's good to keep trying if you have the desire to have a family. Everyone won't be what you're looking for. We all go through the hurt of disappointment.
        Dogs are awesome.

        There is also a European catfish that regularly grows to more than 140 kilograms, you ever seen one? I've catfisted before; man what a terror. One of those suckers gets hold I'd bet he could take off an entire arm. I mean the 30-50 pounders where I live can really bloody you up as it is, I don't think I'll ever be fishing that way again, knowing some species grow that large.

        My mom's dog will chew the squeak out of any squeak toy you give him. Except the two piggie toys. The piggie toys are precious and must be chewed only hard enough to make them make noises.

        I always loved "indestructible" chew toys, that seemed to be some sort of challenge to the dog to destroy them as quickly as possible.

        @taarna23 Weird, my dog also destroyed all his toys except his piggy! (He's actually buried with it, he loved it so much, LOL!)

        @Llareian Aw, that's sweet. With my mom's, he's got two different ones - one with a rather distinctive squeak (which is what blew my mom's mind when he didn't chew it to bits) and one that makes more of a piggy noise. He loves both and it's so silly.

        There's a lot of construction going on near where I live, but it's mostly overpriced student flats - useless. We need more homes for the average person to live in, not flats to be rented out to students for insane amounts of money. I guess that's how this all works, though.

        @l8rose I didn't do the Barrow Downs thanks to a glitch: I ran all the way to Bree and skipped them. (But from there on Frodo was paralyzed until the end of the game :p)
        I think versus the Balrog, Frodo and Aragorn had to stay alive or the entire party would lose.

        He's another lab, though he is part mutt too since his ears aren't floppy like labs are, but the rest of him is all Labrador. Probably why the other lab likes him, I think the beagle is intimidated because his seniority feels threatened by the new dog being so much bigger than him. He's getting over it through, they played a good 10 minutes earlier before the beagle remembered to snarl.

        They are no worse for farmers than rabbits or deer usually (most farmers 'round here raise cattle, and cattle are fierce). Maybe less pests than deer since they eat deer actually.

        It's the rural suburbanites that seem to clash with coyotes the most actually. Since they will scavenge trash, occasionally harm/kill pets and even kids in rare cases. They do breed like nobodies business though, whether they are in a food rich environment or starved for it.

        My ideal is going to be to take some of the money I'll be making and funnel it into my game, maybe I'll hire a team and actually make some leeway here and there in the future.

        I think for PS4 you basically have borderlands, battlefield and guitar hero. I recently discovered 7 days to die, a port of a PC game that's basically zombie themed Minecraft and my bro and I, and his kids, and him an his wife have all been playing the hell out of it the last couple weekends. A shame more games don't offer split screen play.

        It was the executioner. That early quest to get the ring and he had armor and a nice looking sword and I only had a club and we were alone in the wilds so I knocked him over the head and took his sword.

        Don't know how far you are but if you haven't keep doing the main story til captain Bernard trains you then get him to teach you to riposete (master stroke I think it's called) as soon as possible. Combat is much easier once you can do that. It pretty much goes from bandit leaders are impossible to beat without stealth strangling to hunting down all bandits because they are easy money once you get it.

        I've only seen a couple texture glitches so far, and they snap too fast enough that you might not catch them all so maybe the patch does help a bit there. The worst I saw was during the scene where the guy who killed your parents shows up in the town you flee to and for a couple seconds his platemail was bright purple.

        People in (good) relationships get to enjoy them every day. And showing our love is done by the way we treat the other person daily, so Valentine's is pretty pointless.
        It feels like a teen holiday when dating isn't all that serious and commercialism hasn't disgusted us yet.
