        Blizzard is dead for a while, it's just Activision now. They deserve their fate, they even blocked account deletion . The NBL did a similar thing. You have to give it to China when they can control large US companies.

        They back-tracked the punishment slightly but honestly they handled the situation very poorly from the start.

        The champion of your own game who actually promotes your game, is the one person you shut down? When you are a game company guess what. Be good for your gamers, this is stupid on so many levels...

      Best part of the new Tool album: the mood. Sounds like a Rush album with Black Sabbath sourness. I like it more after each listen...

      Cut myself while cutting parsley. A sharp knife leaves a clean wound. Too bad you don't feel the blade until you notice it is stuck...

        *shudders* I could never work in medicine.

        Once while prepping avocados the pit broke in ½ flat with the surface of the fruit. So I gently tried to stab it with tip of the chef's knife. It wouldn't budge, so stabbed harder. It rotated, the knife went thru the fruit and into flesh just below the webbing of fingers 3 & 4. Hello urgent care.

        Restaurants taught me to deal with burns well enough, but I don't like cuts.

        Ha! My friend is also a rancher and I’ve found rancher-doctors to be a different breed. There’s an ob/gyn my wife worked with who is the biggest redneck & looks the part. He told my wife he was already delivering calves w/o going to school for it so he might as well make some money doing the same thing with human babies.

        The money still goes somewhere - someone has to receive it, it doesn't just disappear into thin air. Instead of subsidizing oil and gas companies, perhaps redirect that money towards building electrolytic hydrogen plants, etc.

        A 16-year old with ideals, good. Fast forward and being an adult comes into play. If you still have the same ideals make sure you have the wallet. Things have to change but making noise is not the same as voting with your wallet. Ditch the fancy MacBooks and cheap fashion, start recycling and maintaining your belongings. Quality has a price...

      A Seiko 7002 can be had for 80-ish Dollars. The SKX costs at least 200 in retail. Seriously, with that 7S26 that is overcharging...

        The CD ritual isn't all that different from the vinyl one, at least in spirit if not also in practice. Both can be very satisfying :)

        I love my 7002, it's just different enough from the SKX to be more awesome!! Crown at 4 o'clock which gives it a slightly slimmer profile, date only vs day/date and square vs oval indices.

        Need to post my Turtle re-issue in the watch thread. Have had it for a little over a year.. it's my first mech. LOVE IT. The pad and raised bezel means business. Dig the (authentic) tool-y look and functionality.. looks classy too.

        Bummer! I don't own one, but they are pretty rad. With Seiko also discontinuing many of their entry-level watches with the 6R15 movement, they don't seem to represent the same bang-for-your-buck that they used to.

        It doesn't fit at all.

        Here hard cheese is a more common spice on pasta than salt is, this and a couple of other spicy ones are the exceptions.

        Pecorino is acceptable on arrabbiata, so long as you get the one that is itself effectively strong enough to taste spicy.

        I made fresh pasta and this dish for my now wife early when we were dating (and a million times since). She claims it was a big factor in realizing I was worth keeping around. I've still not mastered it, but I'm fond of it for obvious reasons.

        If it'll make you feel better, we can strangle ojneg on a rope of his own guts. He probably won't like it!
        Or we can write him a sternly written letter and sign it by hand.

        I don't know the cause of this upset, and I am not going to go looking for it. It's a community: it takes all sorts. And hey, just because someone is a Trump supporter or a Brexit supporter doesn't mean they have nothing that I can't talk to them about.

        Or what happens to water when you drop a rock into it.

        So, maybe not so impractical?
