  1. I might just wear em to piss people off.
  2. Oh, I'll still be around, if anybody's on. It's not like I haven't played through all the Mass Effect games a time or two. Won't be on for a few days at least, since the mayor and I are both somehow on vacation at the same time. I don't know how long it's been since you were on, but they've added all kinds of stuff. I think there may be three heists you've never done. They added a bunch of the lower end, older supers as Simeon cars. I don't know which ones exactly, but I do know the Infernus is one of em. My favorite thing in the game right now is business battles. They're t
  3. Hadn't been paying that close attention to the release date, so I just now realized I'm heading out for vacation hours before. First time I've been away from the house for an entire day since 2019. Another example of my perfect timing. I'll be in a cabin out in the woods with no TV or internet, trying to convince my wife that those weird ass Axis deer calls are chupacabra. At least there won't be any temptation to try to find a way to play.
  4. More power to em. Just be sure to put a prefix on that title. Most Disappointing seems to fit, though I'm sure plenty of others would as well.
  5. Does that mean the movie is actually good? I'm pretty sure Sum of All Fears is the worst novel I've ever managed to finish reading.
  6. It might be a financial flop in one way at least, though the impact won’t be seen for years. I figure they’re gonna have to work pretty damn hard to sell their next game. Much harder than they had to with this one.
  7. Having watched virtually every snap of said QB’s college career, I’d quibble with the decision making knock, but fully agree with the rest Mond played really well a couple times, but he was mostly just a not gonna lose you the game guy in college. Not sure that’s the kind oh QB you spend an early third on.
  8. Hey, if you have the opportunity to get Trent Dilfer, you make it happen. You don’t let things stand in the way.
  9. I once met Chris Simms when he was a freshman at Texas. I was very bored waiting for my wife to get off work (she was the math tutor for the athletics dept there) so I decided to entertain myself watching a student IT person trying to explain the difference between a Mac and a PC to Simms. It was like watching somebody explain the Schrodinger Equation to a groundhog.
  10. Yeah, a lot of that's still around, but it's less annoying somehow now. Maybe I just don't give a shit any longer. If it gets annoying, I just change rooms. It's weird how stuff seems to go in and out of fashion. Since I started back playing a bit I've only run into one suicide queen. RPG spamming also seems to have gone out of style. I've run into a few scout sniper folks, but not nearly like we used to. Still a lot of flying motorcycles, but not quite as many as I remember from the past. The only ones that bother me are the guys that constantly use their stupid bikes to move from
  11. I have you know I am only got one trip to juvie. You were our only repeat offender. You need to come visit when we’re on sometime. The dots haven’t got any better and Simeon cars net 20k now
  12. Melraz and I got our first ever GTA car show invite last night. It was cute. They even had a guy running security. I don’t think we’re gonna get invited back.
  13. When I got mine from Walmart they said I had to be at the house to sign for it. Then they dropped it off on the doorstep without even ringing the bell. We lost 40 pounds of cat litter off the front porch right about that same time, but the Xbox stayed put.
  14. I'm coaching my son's T-ball team this year. First time coaching. It's been interesting. We already had two kids out due to Covid before our first game. Our second game was cancelled because the other team was quarantined after they had a kid come to their first game with the virus. Yesterday we got an email saying we're going to umpire the games ourselves since most of the umpires have it. The kids themselves are an interesting mix. There are four or five who are pretty good, a few that at least seem to realize they're on a baseball field, one that hasn't shown up the last fou
  15. By then you'll probably need an external USB HD just to store all the patches. And the game will still be as broke as ever.
  16. Got shot two yesterday. I'm right at what is supposed to be the worst point for side effects now. Wiped out tired, muscles are weak and got a headache - which is about what actual Covid was for me since I only had a mild case. I'm assuming the muscle weakness won't go on for months like it did with the actual disease. Glad to have it done, and ready to ease up a little bit on our family Covid protocols, though we'll still be careful.
  17. I went online last weekend to buy a new pocketknife. I already knew what to expect, but still got annoyed about instantly because every damn knife has to be called “tactical” or the mall ninjas won’t buy it. Anyway, my six year old heard me grumbling and came over to check out what I was doing. Then he wanted to what made something tactical. I told him that mainly it’s just gotta be black. Unfortunately, he and I have the same sense of humor, so he spent the next thirty minutes running around pointing at things and shouting “tactical television!” “Tactical mud!” “Tactical cat!” His
  18. I'm assuming that inventory thing pretty much applies to ME1 only. Even there I never had much trouble, at least once I had the money for Spectre gear. My simple (possibly incorrect) rules - every gun you pick up is trash. - every omni-tool and/or amp that doesn't say "Savant" on it is trash. - Every armor that doesn't say "Predator" (except for one Krogan one that I can't remember the name of) is trash. - The system breaks down a bit with mods, or course, but even there I only went with a couple things and and chucked the rest.
  19. Could be. Confession time here. I'm a design engineer for a large chipmaker. Worked in a number of divisions over the years including, briefly, the IoT group. Since refrigerators were nearly impossible to find last year, it looked for a while like we'd have to get one with that crap. I told my wife that was fine as long as we let our five year old disable it with a hammer.
  20. In ten years you’ll probably struggle to find a fridge that doesn’t have that. I’m a paranoid Luddite, and I had to go out of my way to get one that didn’t have that tech last year.
  21. I was able to get an XSX through them back in December. Missed one drop as I didn’t have an account with the credit card set up but got it on the next drop or the one after. Nice thing was they said it would arrive sometime in January, but I got it before Christmas now if I just had time to use it
  22. We got our first (Pfizer) shots yesterday. All I got was a sore arm. My wife is having a rougher go of it. Don't know if the side effects are worse if you've had the virus before, but she's feeling a lot of the same symptoms from when we had our fairly mild cases back in December.
  23. Looking at how full the average strip mall parking lot is around here, I don’t figure baseball even moves the needle on the Texas stupidity meter
  24. As far as KU goes does it really matter who they hire?
  25. Unsurprisingly, Texas has decided that all is well, and that they can go back to playing that hideous tune every time they get positive yardage on offense or don't give up a first down on defense. Also, racism was a terrible thing, but they're all better now and they're glad to announce it's been consigned to the history books. I might actually read the next alumni fundraising letter I get from them instead of chucking it in the shredder, just to see how they spin this shit.
