  1. Holy cow there seems to be a subscription crate for everything now. AC Filters, Clothes, Bras, Candy, etc. XD I actually just signed up for Umai Crate. It seems to be the most unique and best value. Its just a box full of different Japanese instant ramens. I'll report if its any better than the cheap shitty ramen you can get at the grocery store. For $25 a month, the box seems to be full of 7-9 bags/boxes/cups of various types. If I'm not impressed with the first box, I'll cancel it and feel like it was worth trying something interesting. I watched a few youtube unboxings and taste tests and it seems to be pretty well received, even in the comments on their facebook posts. I recently had authentic ramen at a local hole in the wall and it was amazing. I always thought ramen was just that shitty Nissin stuff. XD Some of the videos I watched, its def a little more complex than just pouring hot water into noodles and a tiny spice packet. Some of them have multiple packets to enter in before and after water is added. And apparently there are suggested fresh add ons you can buy separately at the grocery store. Things you obviously can't dehydrate like hard boiled eggs.

      Before you know it you'll have a stock pile of ramen that'll turn into christmas presents. XD Everyone will remember it as the christmas you gave ramen to everyone. XD

      Everything is rng now, even our food. Lol. Definitely let me know how that ramen turns out. I've had a few slightly fancy ones with multiple packets. It had a packet of freeze dried veggies, a spice packet and a broth packet. It wasn't that impressive tho. My favorite ramen is still the nong shim brand kimichi ramen. It has a nice spiciness to it that nothing else really matches in terms of flavor and its only $1.20 per bowl at the store. For some reason it's sold in the international section instead of with all the other ramen.

  3. Being in the grocery business for over a decade and a half you see a lot of product flops, successes, bait & switches, and other flat out BS. In one year I watched Kellogg's decrease the size of their cereal box contents by .5oz-3oz multiple times. They kept the box height the same and made them marginally slimmer each time to make it less noticeable. When Eternal water first hit the shelves it was from "Natural Springs in Norway". One day a coworker noticed it tasted different, and then noticed the bottle now said "From a municipal water source in California". XD I've seen Edy's Ice Cream downsize their containers, and then return them to the old size a year later calling it "Now 20% more!" Nah, you just gave back what you took. The biggest scam of the century is Halo Top ice cream and everyone that's copying it. Halo Top is just jet puffed ice cream. Breyers makes their version, and now Ben & Jerry's is going to make their line of it. You're paying for deceptive portion control. The only reason they are "low calorie" is because there is less ice cream in the cup. Since a pint is by volume and not by actual weight, most people fall for the this trick. You're paying the same, if not more money for the ice cream version of a bag of chips half filled with air. Don't support this crap. Just get regular ice cream and eat less per serving. On a final note, Breyers doesn't even call their product ice cream anymore. Its "Frozen Dairy Dessert". XD WTF I'm glad I have access to Blue Bell. Its still a half gallon, and its still ice cream. http://www.mouseprint.org/2013/01/21/breyers-converts-ice-creams-to-frozen-dairy-desserts/

      I like the regular number 1 Dave's single. I still like the Jr bacon cheeseburger if I get like 3 of them. They used to be so much bigger 10 years ago. The baconater has to much bacon for me. Feels like I'm prepping my arteries for a heart attack whenever I eat one. 😂

      That big n tasty was my hamburger of choice back when it came out. I wasn't aware they still made them. Burger king burgers are trash but damn their fries are the best. Surprised the hell out of me last month when I broke my burger king hiatus. Those fries are damn good. There's still no Hardees or Carl's Jr anywhere near me but i still see their commercials, same with sonic drive thru. Those Hardees commercials are alot better now. Lol. That slider double burger looks good. Wendy's and 5 guys are the best fast food burgers around here. I'd go to 5 guys more often if they had a drive thru.

      All those diet fads were ridiculous. The last one I heard about and saw in the frozen food section at Wal-Mart last month was paleo diet frozen meals.  lmao. Because eating food like a caveman really helped their longevity. 😂😂😂 I only saw maybe 7 frozen meals of it probably bedside cavemen didn't have a variety to choose from. 😂😂😂

      I've seen the decrease in some packaging and sometime I'll notice it but damn they are good at hiding it with package design. It's not just food in stores it's also fast food. I almost never get breakfast at fast food anymore.. the last time I got a mcgriddle at McDonalds was over 3 years ago and when i got one about 8 months ago it was 3/4 the size of what it was the last time. It was so noticeably smaller to me that it was shocking. Same with the snack sandwiches at KFC. They used to be the size of a chicken tender on a bun but now it's the size of a large chicken nugget for the same price.

      I've tried all of those except for blue bell and kemps. They might sell kemps here but I've never noticed. I haven't seen blue bell anywhere yet, maybe they'll expand out here soon. Perry's and byrne dairy ice creams are 2 regional ones here. Both brands make great flavors of ice cream but they're both air puffed to much for me. Especially Perry's. That one is basically soft serve right in the container.

      Lmao. I hate breyers and Perry's ice cream. It's all that puffed up crap and I swear it does not agree with my stomach. I still haven't tried blue bell but I do like blue bunny. That ice cream is so dense I cut my hand on the lid once struggling to get a scoop out. 😂

  8. I've owned 3 cars now. My first car was a 1993 Nissan Maxima. It had 110k miles on it and it served me well until 215k miles. An alternator and a break hose were the only major repairs I've ever had to have done on it. Then I got a 2004 Mazda3 which also served me well from 11k miles to 80k miles, a fuel purge sensor was the only major repair I ever had to do on it. I'd still have it if some kid didn't pull out in front of my and total it. With the insurance check I should have just put a nice down payment on a brand new car... but at the time I didn't want a car note so I got the only thing I could find... a 2004 Ford Mustang. It had less miles than my Mazda so I figured it was like I just had this car all along since it was the same year. Wrong, its been the biggest POS I've ever owned. I've had to have the power steering pump replaced twice, major exhaust work twice, serpentine belt, entire ABS system, read axle, front calipers, CV joint, motor fan, and the transmission that was put in to replace the already busted on they tried to sell the car with, is about to go out again... to top it all off the paint just started crumbling off the car and now its rusting. I bought it with 65k miles and now it has 116k miles. Now that my college loan is almost finally paid off, I'm looking to get a brand new Honda Civic or VW Golf. The Civic is a car I've always wanted since wanting a car, but the Golf is very nice and has more horsepower. I'll never buy another ford car again. I remember when my exhaust system basically fell off the car because the manifold cracked... the muffler shop I went to basically said "Yeah this is pretty common at 90k miles for this car" which I was pretty much at... wtf. Screw Ford. I've never had so many catastrophic failures with a vehicle.

      That cvt transmission sounds very nice. I've never driven a car up a hill like that without having to push more on the pedal. Can you turn the lights off if you wanted to if they auto turn on? The one thing I thought was really odd was losing that functionality with my corolla. At night the lights auto turn on but if I go to pick someone up at work I try to park away from a window because i can't turn the headlights off at night. My car was really basic low end when i got it in 2010, but nowadays the tech is crazy. Built in gps, satellite radio, apps, back up camera, bluetooth for phones, voice recognition, turn nobs for gear shifting, etc. My father in laws new truck has the oddest key. Its literally the fob itself that you insert into the ignition and it locks in place like a magnet. I've seen other cars with smart keys that only need to be in the car and you push a start button. But that uses rfid tech that I don't have any real faith in security tho.

      If you can wing it I'd go for the civic. The civic and their counterpart the corolla are cars that seem to last forever. After watching that video comparison the other day the newer corolla seats looks horrendous to me. Why the hell the engineers would put seats like that in the car makes no sense to me. The pick up and go of the engine is no real concern of mine, my main interest is car longevity, comfort while driving. Although I really to like having control nobs fire volume. I never want to take my eyes off the road to use a touch screen. And volume controls on steering wheels are ass to me because they always seem to get hit when I turn the wheel. I know I hated having a large car payment but for a brand new car, but the lack of any mechanic bills for about 5 years made it all worth while.

      What color were you hoping to get?

      So much repair work. Holy crap. I'll never buy an American brand car again. That old Chevy blazer I had ruined Chevy for me and your story will keep me away from Ford's from here on out. I've never looked at a VW golf until just now when i googled it. It looks nice. The Honda civic is a reliable car. I almost got one of those years ago but I went with toyota Corolla. My corolla has been great for the first 7 years but then I had a cooling issue that resulted in having to replace the car's computer because it was faulty. Aside from that I only had minor work done like brakes. Surprisingly enough my exhaust system is still rock solid and I'm still running the original muffler. My old Saturn went thru a muffler every 2 years. I did get the under coating when I bought it and I don't regret that $200 expense at all.

      My brother bought a used car recently and the dealership had a 7 year warranty on the engine and transmission that didn't cost extra. Wtf. No dealerships around here have warranties like that.

  14. Tried the Monster Hunter Wold beta after the guys I played Destiny with kept hyping it up... eh. Its not for me. The controls are funky, and the explanation of what I was suppose to be doing wasn't very good. I just beat down a monster until it died? I thought I was suppose to be capturing it? I was expecting a finishing move prompt, or a QTE, for a death blow, but it just seemed anti-climatic. Then it sent me to the "Coming Jan 2018, would you like to Pre-Order?" in which I said no and got sent back to the main menu. At this point I knew I wasn't going to try the more difficult quests if I have to go through all that each time, rather staying in the game world and picking another quest that way. I never played a Monster Hunter game before, I always thought they looked neat, but playing it myself left me uninspired.

  15. BoTW took Game of the Year award and its well deserved, but I'm also glad NieR: Automata got best musical score, because its very well deserved.

      If I ever get a switch, BoTW will be the first game I buy.

  16. Bestbuy and Amazon had some good deals on movies yesterday. Got 9 recent releases on blu ray for about $50. And I got a 4tb western digital external hard drive from bestbuy for $79.

      Yep. If any package is small enough to fit in your mail box it'll be finished by USPS and 70% of the time it'll be delayed. Although most of the time when my packages get delayed it'll be because Amazon literally doesn't start the shipping process until a day after I order. I'll get a text message that it's shipped, get a tracking number, etc. But I'll check that tracking number 24 hours later and it'll still say "package shipping information received" but nothing about ups getting the package to ship for an entire day.

      I'm supposed to get 2 packages delivered via USPS today but tracking says they got the packages at 5:50 am, but it's already 8 something this morning and it still doesn't say "out for delivery" I can pretty much guarantee they'll hold that package for another day at this point. Amazon prime has been losing its appeal to me for a while now. I don't think I'll renew it again next August at this point.

  17. The new firefox update is amazing. It feels a lot faster even if it does look like a Windows 95 program. XD

      I was using it all day yesterday and aside from the block look at the top, Firefox has never run better. I'm really impressed with how fast it is now compared to what it was.

      Lol. I need to update mine. I read it uses less memory and runs faster than chrome now.

  19. Holy crap I've been sick as hell for the last 4 days. Its a combo strep throat and flu. I've been off an on sick for the last month but this is kicking my ass on a whole new level.

  20. My right joystick on my Cinch PS4 controller is going bad. It doesn't register right turns very well. I think it has something to do with me taking it apart after the charge port fell into the controller. Part of that is my fault for being spoiled by USB-C and not checking if its in the correct orientation. It lasted me a good year and a half. I'm too spoiled to go back to a regular controller so I ordered another one.

      I got some of that nasal spray. Is it best to inhale deeply right when spraying it? Or spray it first and then sniff deeply afterwards? I haven't used a nasal spray in years and even then only a couple times.

      How much would a repair job cost from them compared to buying a new controller?
