I had a strange dream last night where I went to Walters house. It was dark and cluttered. He was constantly eating from a bowl which never left his hands. I looked over his book shelf and suggested we watch Band of Brothers, but Walter insisted we watch a new Owen Wilson movie. I begrudgingly obliged, making comments about how stupid it was to Walters annoyance as we watched.

I’ve been trying to write my dreams down immediately and remember as much as possible because supposedly that helps one have more control and awareness in future dreams. This one was especially vivid and most of it i can account for. Walters dream comment in the spooky thread, Owen Wilson (I just watched Bottlerocket) and the guitar playing. I can’t account for Big Bang Theory though. Nightmare indeed lol

I just hope for the future that dream Aaz or dream Griffith have better taste in television. The Indian girl can stay though.

My recent dream was just me playing the sequel to Sekiro. It was pretty great. I hope it's a premonition.

I just went into Windows settings to increase the size of my cursor by one. When should I expect my first social security check?

Anyone watching the superbowl on sunday? Pretty great matchup this year. As a New Englander, I can't help but root for Brady. 43 years old and playing in his 10th championship, possibly winning for a 7th time. If it were a movie it would be dismissed as unrealistic.

Growing up in the New England football craze (and sharing my name with the OTHER Patriot quarterback pre Brady), once they started winning I couldn't have been less interested. It was the punk rock thing to do. That's when hockey took over my life as the ultimate sport. But eventually, during that drought that you're talking about, I got back on board. Probably because they couldn't seem to go all the way, despite having some of the best teams of all time, being one Super Bowl short from a perfect season and the inability to beat the Giants when it mattered. Then as you say, they just started winning again to the point that yea, next year looks pretty damn promising. And indeed, I just shake my head in disbelief at how smart Brady looks now going to Tampa, assembling his team and then winning it all (using the guys he fought to bring in). Especially when a year ago it all seemed so questionable. Did anyone think Antonio Brown would have a ring? Kinda regret that part, actually.

Brown was the breaking point with the Patriots too, cut for his toxicity and Brady only cared he had no weapons lol. I actually think this is to his competitive credit and why teammates love him; he only cares about winning and he'll back you if you help, even if it makes him look bad. He's not acting better than those guys or prioritizing his personal brand. He was probably also tired of watching Belichick trade down every draft, whiff yearly and then having to make it work and getting the blame when it didn't. But yeah, each guy Brady brought to Tampa scored a touchdown in the freakin' Super Bowl! He's a better GM than Belichick, who now has to live with his best coach status coming with the Phil Jackson caveat that, "he had the best player(s)!" I figured if anyone was going to win without the other it was Belichick because he could go another decade. Just incredible, this would be like if Jordan won with the Wizards, and he was 5 years younger at the time... :magni:

Just thought it was funny that it made its way on youtube and getting quote as an ass licker for appreciating good thread. Oh its apparently also okay to read it for free cause Miura dont need the money. I hope you're still here and will read this mysterious friend.
Portugal is getting really beaten up by THAVIRUS™, not just by the vanilla virus but by the English strain, Brazilian strain and possibly the African strain.......man, Portugal is such a welcoming, diverse country, all all viruses are welcome.

P.S. We have great food too, come visit.

I grew up in a town in Rhode Island that has a large Portuguese population so I'm pretty familiar with the culture. All of my friends growing up were Portuguese, most of the schools were made up of Portuguese kids. I've spent many days at friends houses eating chourico and running around grape vines in the backyard. I always stayed on the plastic matting in the house though, with pictures of jesus in every room. :troll: Seriously though, I still have many of those friends and i now live in that town i grew up in and I really like it. I feel sorry that so many people will never even meet a Portuguese person.

I've only heard amazing things about Portugal cos my wife's been there 3 times on holiday. Stay safe bud.
I started taking online, self-paced Japanese lessons about two weeks ago. I've been following Berserk for more than 20 years, and yet I can scarcely ever read anything on the page that isn't a regularly-used kanji or katakana. It's ridiculous, and it's time to put an end to it. (1/3)

Cool! I dabbled a little with flash cards a few years ago and got some Japanese notebooks but fell off when I went back to college. Now that I'm done with the program and secured a job I want to get back to practicing. I considered making a thread for sharing resources.

@Sareth If you just want to hop back into learning Kanji, then I'd definitely recommend Wanikani. It's all online, so you can do it on your phone, and it's free up to level 4 (100 or so kanji?). It focuses only on Kanji memorization with silly/memorable mnemonic techniques. Pretty damned effective. It smartly doles out new kanji lessons and reviews based on an algorithm that's influenced by your performance.

try the Kanji Study app.
Does anyone else have that strange sensation when eating a chocolate bar that your throat feels like it closes up or is itchy? Sometimes causing coughing? I had a snickers at work and my throat closed up on me immediately. I thought I was going to choke to death, and it wasn't from any actual food. I couldn't breath for about 20 seconds. Very embarrassing and hard to to describe. Can anyone relate to this?

Yes! Be carefull and like aazealh suggested go see a specialist. These kind of allergies can be very dangerous.

It's possible you developed an allergy to peanuts (in the Snickers). Definitely get that checked!

The unofficial Taiwan version of the Berserk OST I ordered on accident finally arrived. Not as bad as I thought it was gonna be.
Merry Christmas, everybody! What are you doing to celebrate the holidays this year?
Tested positive for coronavirus so I'm on lockdown. Glad I got a good job this year so my leave is covered. Got a backlog of comic books and video games to keep me busy.
