    Urggh, cheesey dub make brain hurt. Also, me and my brother went to Avengers 2 last night. Not even an hour in the power went out and they kicked us out. :| :| :| :| :| :| :| Not sure what to do, want to watch the whole thing but all I got to see was the set up and I have to sit through it...

    The "New Toys" Thread

    Weee, got a shiny new 2TB WD Black drive. Took a couple days to actually get it up and running - had to "borrow" a SATA cable from work, and then my computer was actually just asleep when I hooked it up last night (holy fucking oops) and didn't feel like restarting because I was trying to do a...

    TIFU by discovering the current clearance on my car and hitting my roof rack on the apartment building's garage door. Got me a nice deep scratch to show for it. I no smart. [billoreily] fucking thing sucks [/billoreilly]

    Hey, hold up a moment, what? What is a flattened banana? My grocery stores are boring even for white people grocery stores - and I do mean they're very much stocked to target white people, the foreign/exotic sections are almost non-existant :lol:

    I don't know how much Tina Fey is involved with Kimmy Schmidt, but it definitely has her absurd lighthearted humour style all over it. Good stuff. Raw sewage is some nasty stuff. A basement sink in my parents' house backed up once. While I was using the computer right by it :cry: It was...

    Bicycles!

    One of the guys I ride with has a nice bag that sits on top of his rack, but I don't think it's the kind of bag you would want to just carry around, it's an odd shape (long and not very tall) and doesn't look convenient to carry. Likewise, your standard side panniers seem like they would be...

    Breaking Bad

    Oh I didn't even know it was Netflix'd. And they even got a 'Netflix Original' title... that I've obviously not seen for myself or anything :unsure: AMC's relationship with Netflix is pretty cool. Also, the series, I'm digging it. Didn't have any idea going in, still think it's kind of weird...

    Bicycles!

    Weee, spring thaw, weee, first ride of the year. Boo, dirt. I almost looked like I'd been mountain biking my clothes were so dirty. Somehow the picture looks about half as dirty as my bike actually is. Also, I checked out the spring bike show yesterday. Kinda cool, it's basically where all the...

    For shame, the language pedantism stopped short of making fun of Americans for "incorrectly" pronouncing the names of their cities. Pittsberg. Yer welcum.

    Bicycles!

    I have a Garmin with wireless speed/cadence sensor and of course wireless heartrate monitor, and while I haven't been outside since I got it (because snow and salt, so much salt) I'm not exactly concerned about the battery. They say the speed/cadence sensor has a 500 hour battery life. In any...

    I'm going to guess that "prepared himself" means got naked and rubbed raw steaks all over himself. Mmm, cow blood.

    Heh. Hehe. I like documentaries about fat people / fear mongering about the food industry. They're funny. "Oh mah gah, there's so much sugar in everything, damn the food industry! Oh, sorry, excuse me, this flavoured coffee's still too bitter, let me just empty six packs of sugar into it."...

    lol, I just got an email from google about photos from my phone that got backed up to da clowds (I never pay attention to it, it's like "here's some photos you uploaded, wanna share them"). From last weekend's company ski trip... I don't remember taking them. I think I did though, judging by the...

    Post a pic of yourself

    Uhh... I don't think I actually processed any photos in 2014, I just collected a bunch of RAWs. Anywho, a little late, but this is my Movember before and after. HAPPEHSTACHE lol ...man do I ever look my dad with a mustache.... (he's worn a stache on and off through the years)

    That's impressive. For the most part, I think when you're a kid you just assume your life is what most people experience. Maybe you have one friend whose family has significantly more or less money, but you're probably surrounded by other kids in similar situations so that one poor/rich kid is...

    Brands you use

    Everyday Shoes: Merrell. Best fit I've found for my stupidly shaped feet and even my lightweight Merrells are rugged enough to go up the side of a mountain. Fiber One bars for the poops. Serious. Other than that, really just anything MEC sells I guess. Oh, and Eddie Bauer. Electronics for me...

    I have a friend from Australia who has gotten a ton of parking tickets since living here. He's just like "well if they don't want people to get parking tickets they should just charge more" because like $15 tickets compared to over $100 in Australia according to him. Also he's Chinese and a...

    I'm surprised by the trains figure, actually. I wonder if that includes suicides, as trains are a popular mode for it. How many deaths have there been of, say, Amtrak passengers in that time period? I can't imagine it's very many... but trains absolutely get fewer millions of miles than planes...

    SteamOS is just some shitty linux distro with a version of Steam that only runs in Big Picture. Response from valve support: lern2nix? Support done. :P Steamboxes still make no sense to me. Most games will still be windows only. 3d games with linux ports will usually run worse in linux. So...
