Shootin' the Breeze / Re: What are you drinking? (general liquid thread)
« on: August 15, 2012, 06:50:26 PM »
Alcohol related question- anyone know what's a good inbetween liquer for doing shots that's not as bad as whiskey like jim bean but not a girly one like a kamakazi? I need to entertain some folks and nodody drinks whiskey but I refuse to drink fruity stuff. And please no vodka.

Shots? Entertainment? Jagger bomb or something smoother: Irish car bomb.

I went to some Wii U Experience thing in Atlanta. Friend had an invite only pass an a couple guess passes so I went with him. Wii U wasn't too bad and I can definitely see the system as, yet again, another party system. We played all the games they had there, some were cool concepts like Rayman where one person controls rayman and the other controls some.. um bug/fairy thing (I've never played a Rayman before). It was like a sonic/tails feel where I had a regular d-pad running through levels while my friend had that Wii controller and he would be looking at that screen to do specific things to help me advance - kinda cool. Some games were more forced and it seemed you spent way too much time flipping back and forth between the TV screen and the Wii screen like batman arkham City. Like in that game you had to constantly go to your Wii screen, hit a bunch of buttons for "bat gadgets" to solve puzzles. It seemed too forced and just boring, oh well. So just like the original Wii, light and fun games work real well with this system.

Oh and, here is a pic of me as Mario!

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: The "I just bought" thread
« on: July 29, 2012, 04:09:35 PM »
I have a TV in my bedroom and I was looking for a way of watching movies recorded in the DVR I have in the living room (or the blu-ray player) without having to move the equipment or having to run cables and I ended up buying this:

http://www.zinwell.com.tw/dig_detail.php?productsid=406

Cool. This does seems really neat and would have solved my problem a while ago. I ended up running cat6 cable to my rooms that have TV which was so much of a hassle.



I wanted a small tablet for reading as using my laptop definitely works, but not as comfortable. So, I bought a Nexus 7 and so far I really like it. It's real slick. I've never owned an android device so I figure I would go for it since I wanted a light weight reader. I was tempted to wait for the Microsoft surface but the higher end model (which is what I would get) is more of a laptop/tablet and a little too big for what I was wanting now. I haven't played much with this yet, but Google gives you $25 to their google play store so I'm trying to think of apps I would really want before I spend it.

Would the shower cleaner sort of damage/ affect the upper 'gel' strip or the bristles below the blades?

Hmm/ doesn't seem to affect it much. So far I'm liking this method.

This came in yesterday -

That's a bit intense! Reminds me that I've always wanted to get my face professionally shaved, like with a straight single blade. Brother did it once said it was a super clean and close shave.

Like Skullgrin140 I only shave when I feel ncessary. Since I work from home, I can get away with it more often. I "should" be shaving every day since my hair grows ridiculously fast (on my face, not my head. :judo:)

I use Gillette Fusion Proglide Power Razor - I can never go back to a razor that doesn't vibrate, it really helps a lot during shaving. It's been several years since I used foam or shaving cream. I just shave in the shower so as long as my face is wet I'm good to go. I sometimes shave all my hair + beard, sometimes grow a beard out, sometimes just do number 1/2 all across - just whatever.

Also, I was reading some amazon review about extending the life of a razor blade and I'm currently testing it out. Basically, using shower cleaner to spray your blade once used then wash with hot water every use. Can last a month with just one blade! The chemicals from the shower cleaner get washed out when you clean it with hot water. We'll see as I know blades are expensive but as long as the blades aren't rusting or chipping and still feel smooth using this method I don't see why not.

More details here.

Video Games / Re: Diablo 3!
« on: July 15, 2012, 03:17:08 AM »
I haven't touched Diablo 3 in about a month. I feel completely done with the game, and I haven't even spent much time with alternate characters. I never had this problem with Diablo 2, and I think it comes down to the fact that my character doesn't feel unique. I can't spec for a Bone Necromancer or the equivalent. I didn't think that would bother me, but in the long term, I think it really did.

I mimic this. Though, I also feel part of it's me and maybe I'm getting older and games like this are less interesting. Don't know.

I can't remember the last time I was wearing an armor piece that I picked off the ground, and that takes away from most of the fun of seeing items drop in the game.

Sad, but true. :( You're right about Path of Exile's item economy being better. I actually think everything about that game is better than diablo 3. Well, other than the animations. If anyone has seen the crazy passive skill tree and items mods in that game it's just crazy. I feel much more accomplished having a unique character like Walter said then just one like everyone else.

Shootin' the Breeze / Re: Dating ... online?
« on: July 06, 2012, 02:38:40 AM »
Okay, so I want discuss a few things before I directly address the question because of some of the comments and answer choices in this thread.

I feel that the most critical time in your life to find a partner is when you are in school. After highschool and college it becomes significantly difficult to date and find someone you want to spend the rest of your life with. The reasons are rather obvious - that is, in school, you're put in groups and situations with other people and forced to interact on most occasions. Then you also have your friends and they have friends so you end up having a big circle or multiple circles of people that you can hang out with. Even though your core group of friends might not change, you are constantly put in new situations every year/semester with different group of people. So, this and many other reasons is why it's so much easier in school to find someone. Especially for someone who is not as outgoing - which, I guess, would be someone who would think about online dating in the first place, ya? In any case, I feel if you were distracted by other things or never really focused on dating when you were in school that you've missed a fundemental time in your life to find someone. Of course, you can still meet someone after that and be happy forever, it just sometimes makes it harder for those who did not. So, I strongly encourage anyone that's in that part of your life to try really hard to date during school.

I personally don't have a huge circle of friends and the probability or chances for me to meet other girls is lessened because of that.

I bring up what I said earlier because of that. It makes it extremely difficult for some people to break out and find someone when you've reached a certain age (lets just say 25+) and you're done with school. I also think the longer you are by yourself the harder it will become to find someone that you can be compatible with. If you haven't been on a date or have been living by yourself for lets say 10+ years or even 5+ years then it's a drastic change to accept someone into your life. This matters on your personality type, but if we assume you have a small group of friends and it's hard for you to break out of your shell to meet someone then it might also be hard to change your lifestyle as well. Let alone, all your habits, processes, day to day activities will have to fundamentally change just for someone (I know "love" sometimes makes people change everything they're used too). You will still be put out of your comfort zone that you've been used to for so long. I don't know, it's just a thought. While it's not true for everyone, I feel the longer you're by yourself and independent the higher probability it is for you to comfortably change your lifestyle for someone.

I do want to mention one more thing. I don't believe or like to think of the concept of "soulmates." I think it's just one's attraction to another personality type and then how much each other are willing to give up their comfort zone to make things work. So, when you're online dating or dating in general, don't be convinced by the sites that you need to find your "soulmate." To me, most people aren't unique enough for there to be that one person that you can't live without. You can find someone with a similar personality (or type, or even a different type) in a different body that you are sexually attracted to and willing to be compatible with. I don't know, most people find the person they want to be with forever in their same geographical area (settle) and are very happy then marry then die. Nothing wrong with that, that was just the closest person you found that you're compatible with - great. But there are millions of other people that you could be more compatible, love/sexually attracted to that you just don't know about  -so how could you possibly know the person you're with is the only one for you? I don't know, in the end it could always be someone different and it still wouldn't be a big deal. Of course, there are things like "faith" and all that other nonsensical ideas people believe in.. but let me not derail anymore.

Like Walter pointed out, I feel the concept of tossing a pic with bullet points of how great you are is rather dehumanizing. Most of which are going to be phony. Like someone's going to put a bad picture or talk about their problems and how they really are on these sites? Yeah right. Then again, when meeting someone in real life people put up walls as well - so maybe it's not so different. I feel online dating works out pretty okay for your situation Incantation. There might be a bad stigma that everyone who is online dating is going to be awkward, phoney, or have social issues but it matters on what online dating service you use and other factors. So, from experience any of the free ones like plently of fish or whatever have been a complete waste of time. I've, personally, have several bad experiences and even assumed pay for sex conversations. It's rather disgusting. If you're into a one time fling or just want to have fun, I'd recommend going to one of those free sites.

I tried eharmony and even though you have to fill out a 20 page book it was a pretty good experience. You can not do searches, you simply wait each day for matches to come to your inbox. It's a bit different at first but they portray "quality over quantity" - however true that is. The great thing about eharmony (and I assume some of the other paid sites) is you don't just write a random message to someone and not know what to say. Before you talk to someone you basically start off with some pre-defined questions you can ask them, if they reply with answers then they are interested, if they didn't then you didn't waste much time and go on. I know, this seems extremely socially awkward, but I feel very comfortable with this approach. It was nice talking to someone on there or via IM, phone, email and getting to know them before going on an actual date. Some clicked, some didn't but even the ones that didn't we still had talked a lot before and were comfortable with each other before meeting face to face. I really liked that aspect.

So, back to what Walter was saying that the old school way felt more natural to him. Honestly, that's the way to go but if you're past that stage in your life and you now have your narrow group of friends you don't have much of a choice. Again, depending on your personality type, if you're not one for clubs or approaching girls then this makes things extremely difficult. You're not going to want a girl from a club because you're not into that scene so why would you want a girl that's at one? Unless you go to parties and make more friends to meet more people it's going to be tough. So, online dating seems like a pretty reasonable choice. One point Grail made was joining an "activity club." These basically mimic your school experience where you are paired with a group of people to do an activity. I'd recommend these as well if you're up for it. It's also called "Meet up groups" that you can typically google for in your area. You hang out with people of your same age group and just have fun. There's no pressure as far as you looking for someone to date. You're just hanging out with a group of guys and girls that are doing some event and see where it goes. I've had a few friends do this as well and it works out pretty well for finding someone to date. Mainly, because you're in a group setting and it's easy to talk, joke around, and get to know people and vice-versa.

Anyways, I think it's worth a shot and not really a time waster, depending on the site. I think match, and eharmony are pretty solid as far as reputation wise.

Thanks all for your support!

I had a professionnal artisan who can help to repair / repaint it but i don t have the original box ...

So if someone want to sell his AOW Box (Knight of Skeleton horse riding figure normal version 1/15) or want to lend his box to be, i ll be so nice.

Thanks for the help of skullers !!

Nicolas



I'm confused. Why do you need an original box for the professional artist to repaint? If you need to ship, then there are plenty of safe ways to get it nice and tight in a box. If they want to see how it looks all together then plenty of pictures on the internet. Also, curious on an update on this - have you had time to get this repainted?

I went for MartyrdooM which was AWESOME.

Cool. I've never really liked concerts in general and now I just don't go. The crowd, noise, and smell just bother me way too much to enjoy. Would much rather have a recorded DVD of the concert personally.

I went camping, expected not to like it - and I didn't.
