      Just finished Spec Ops: The Line. I cant say that I won, but I completed it. Wow, great game. Emotionally powerful, makes me question myself

        and all the decisions I made, and what truly happened, and what was a figment of "my" imagination. Got to say, one of the best storys of a game I have played. Usually I cant get through story mode, its not engaging enough. This game though... I think I might have to play through again. And read heart of darkness again. And watch Apocalypse Now.

        In Knights of the Old Republic dl'd on the phone, I murdered everything and then did just enough good stuff to get the light side ending.

        I think most potential modders of Schiit amps open them up and see better parts than they expected for the price point and then see all the space constraints & tiny components and close things back up.

        I already have a Nixie tube clock but that's cool too and I have a ton of tubes. By the way, shipping yours tomorrow. One pair works, other has intense static when adjusting volume. Want both?

        That is probably less than a quarter of the total tubes. There are so many small tubes. It will take forever to record them all and sell them

        I just looked up the going rates for these tubes on ebay: if 1/2 of these tubes work, and they sell for 1/2 the expected price, I get $125 just for the box of power tubes. I still have a ton of other tubes. This will take forever. I feel kinda bad negotiating the guy down to $25 from $50 for the box of tubes, but that $25 I saved feels nice...

        Last night we pulled up to a hotel in Lake Charles and a panhandler came up and his first sentence was, “Hey, I’ve been staying behind the Goodwill..” I didn’t hear anything else after that because I was thinking about where this Goodwill was.

        I remember making the same 6 hour drive many times. Going too slow in the CT is way more dangerous then going too fast (though I don't know how to go too fast on 91)...

        We have plenty of fun without alcohol with reality. We went rafting down the river through campus, we put Christmas lights out the 5th floor window, and much more. Many of our greatest adventures do not involve alcohol or video games. But sometimes you just gotta relax and play some video games. And minecraft is pretty fun with a bunch of people you know, all in the same room.

        I have my dad's 2006 Toyota RAV4, but it's not mine, and there is 170k miles, and other issues. At some point, it won't be worth it to fix. Alternator is going to die soon, muffler has whole, 4wd, awd, and traction control don't work, check engine light on.

        Since you don't have the girl yet, you could buy a make-up brush. They are cheap enough. It was one of the first things I thought of. I use one to between vents and other hard to dust small areas in the car. Soft enough, but not too soft. (I don't like to use things to dust and then put them back for my girlfriend to clean herself with.:))
