  1. FedEx delivered my pool the other day.. *sigh* FedEx hires anybody. I see the guy pull into the driveway almost taking out my mailbox at 30 mph. My driveway has a noticeable dip in it. As he hit that I heard boxes from inside my house tumbling around inside his truck. I go outside to open my garage door so I can put it in there for now.. The guy sees me and says "I'm going to need your help moving this, this is heavy." I'm like... "ok.. I can only help so much, get your dolly and I'll help get it on there." He already had the box out of the truck. I'm hoping he eased it down and didn't drop it off the back. This box with the pool in it is 150 pounds. I walk over to him and he still doesn't have the dolly. Hes like "How about you get that end."... me: "No, how about you get that dolly right there." him: "I can't get it off, its tied into place. Its on there tight, I can't work it off.  We could carry it" me: "nah, I have a bad nerve issue in my arms. I'm not carrying this box. I'll get you scissors and then you can cut that rope."

    Meanwhile I look in the truck and all the boxes are tossed all over the place. Its a disaster in there. Not a single thing in that truck is secured.. except the fucking dolly that is tied in place. -_-; The one and only tool every delivery guy needs and its tied down while all the packages are getting beat the shit out of in his truck while he drives crazy. I got some scissors, he cut the dolly free. He took that dolly, put it on the ground, I titled one end of the box, he got the dolly under it, wheeled it back and started to move it slowly. His eyes lit up like his job just got significantly easier. wtf. He perked up and moved that box quick to my garage. He asked where to put it, I said near the chair.. and then he put it behind the lawnmower instead.. me: "ok, I can move it from there, thanks!" wtf.. its like he never got trained.

      It was funny because you could see the realization in his eyes that this device worked amazing. XD

      And I wasnt exaggerating about hearing the boxes bang around when he got in my driveway. I was shocked to see the boxes in that truck. They were all over the place like Christmas presents stuffed into the grinch's bag all hastily and without care. -_-; I feel bad for the person that had the last package delivered from from that guy. I imagine that package banging around in the back all on its own like a tennis ball flying all over the place.

  3. Please Sony don't do what MS did and have a lame ass montage of a bunch of generic people talking about a console's vague specs you don't get to look at. Don't bother having a presser until physical hardware is ready to see and they're are games to announce for it. 🙄 I hope you missed E3 for this reason, and you're own event will not feature this garbage.

      I didn't watch it but the gist seems to be.. "most powerful console ever (like they all say every single time a new console comes out), 120 fps, 8k support, backwards compatibility support, blah blah..." no details on whether that 8k support is for movies/streaming movies only or if its for games.. 120 fps, but no details with at what resolutions to achieve that. It almost seemed like they were testing the waters. Ever since they did their last big reveal with the Xbox One, with no used games, must have a kinect sold with it, etc.. and it initially flopped and got ripped apart by the community.. its like MS wants to be as vague as possible so they can read peoples comments on what they actually want to make sure they have a solid product now before they finalize it.

      What I want to hear from Sony is backwards compatibility of all digitally purchased games. They are making the PS5 backwards compatible, but both MS and Sony are not giving details on their consoles backwards compatibility. Is the backwards compatibility only for disc games? Or can we finally use our digital libraries over multiple consoles like all PC players have been able to do since the beginning of the Steam store and more recently the Epic store?

      I don't know if some people can be immune to it or they can build up a resistance to it. All I know is I never had an issue before. Maybe my entire life I've just been lucky that the rash causing oils that touched me were low potency or something. But I'm taking this way more serious now. I had gloves on and a loose fitting long sleeve shirt on when I was doing yard work that day. I'm guessing the loose shirt sleeve rubbed up against the glove that touched the plant and when I pulled my sleeves up at some point to wash my hands it helped spreed the oil on my forearm. I'm glad I had gloves on or it'd have screwed me for work. Its been 6 days now and my right arm is still swelled up and looking nasty. I only have one bump on my left arm but its still swelled like I got stung by a giant wasp. And those spots are starting to get scaly looking. Its like I got that greyscale disease from game of thrones. XD I see why adults warn their kids about never touching poison ivy/oak/sumac. Now that I've experienced this I'll warn everyone the rest of my life too. x_x

      There are so many myths about poison ivy that I looked into over the last week. As long as the affected area has been washed it to remove the plant oils the rash cannot spread from person to person, any puss blisters does not spread the rash. Any clothes that did touch the oils can still spread a new rash on whoever touches it until those clothes are washed. And sometimes the rash looks like its spreading, but its just a delayed reaction of the skin where the plant oil already touched but had a delayed rash response.

      I have. Lol. Whenever I've mowed grass before I'd see poison ivy brush up against me and never have a problem. I'd walk thru woods and shrubbery and never get a rash. But this time I grabbed a vine growing on one of my trees and yanked it completely out of the ground, long root and all. 1 day later and my arm is swelled in multiple spots like I got stung by 20 bees.

  10. Eh, we got cheated on this short season of GoT. As cool as the winterfell battle was, the Night King's death felt so meaningless. And now Danny is insane?  C'mon... Yeah shes my favorite character, and I wouldn't have minded a descent into madness, but a flip in 2 eps? It's so forced it's sad. Just because Jon told the fam about his heritage and her friend got cut down. It made for an action packed ep, but it didnt make a lot of sense. The Hound and Mountain rivalry was resolved which is what I'm satisfied with... Mountain looked like bloated Darth Vader. 😂😂

      Dany should have been queen and not gone all super tyrannical. 😕 The writing was bad and the ending was so blah compared to the rest of the series. It could have gone alot better. Now my major concern is the two directors. Once there was no more source material this is the best they could come up with? These are the two guys that will be directing the next trilogy of star wars movies. Ugh.

      Btw I saw 2 memes last night.. I should have saved them. Both were of Bronn. One quoted Dany's speech about breaking wheels and there's Bronn in his wheel chair "what was that about wheels?" XD the other showed Bronn sitting in the wheel chair.. "Bronn has been sitting on the throne for the last 8 seasons" or something like that. XD

      He did look like that. XD

      Danny was the liberator and freer of slaves... and like a flip of a coin she now becomes exactly like her father was and starts killing endless innocent people. ok.. yeah thats beyond rushed as all hell. All the build up of all these seasons to get her to the throne and now the writers make her go tyrannical and then pass off all her accomplishments off to a man in the end. I'm guessing they'll kill her and John Snow will become king and it'll be a huge stain on the series.. watch a strong powerful woman rise all the way up to the top, almost accomplish her goals and then have it taken away by a "selfless man that doesn't want it".. sure. cliche. I was glad to see Cersei die. But I was dissapointed that the entire battle was so one sided. They should have saved the Night King battle for the end.

      Danny was all... "I helped you defend the north and now I expect your help to take Kings Landing."

      and in the end all those North people seemed pointless because all I saw was Danny murdering on a dragon, Unsully and a surprising amount of Dothraki that are still alive, just slaughtering everyone while the North people just stood there with their thumbs up their asses.

      The Hound fight was the real highlight of the episode. :D

      With only a few episodes left I was expecting a large majority of characters to die just so the show wouldn't have to finish up a bunch of plot lines. lol. I figured it was going to be lazy writing with this season only being 5 episodes. I imagine a board room meeting.. Producer: "We have 5 episodes left with about 300 plot lines going on.. whats the best way to resolve this massive story?" Other guy: "Kill 90% of the characters, no plot lines to resolve if they're dead." Other Other guy: "Instead of killing everyone, lets bring in Ghost with no reason as to how he survived or where hes been for the last 4 seasons.. then everyone will focus on that wolf and ignore the other 8 seasons of unresolved plot lines." XD

      All those NPCs lost in that battle. XD I bet she left multiple groups of sully and dothraki guarding different locations along their path. She conquered alot of kingdoms on her way to the north. She'll probably pull those troops in for the final battle against Cersei. If not, then they're pretty screwed. That was a horrible strategy with the dothraki.. don't lead with a dragon breath attack or anything.

      That ultra dark was dumb. When my tv is outputting lines of grey/black like dark lens flares because its so damn dark nothing can be seen it really made the quality look piss poor. Considering GOT budget is massive they could have done that alot better, especially since they had so many epic battles in pure day light in previous episodes.

      Jorah would have given his life for her on so many occasions.. at least he died doing what he swore to do.

      It was really the good. Better than I thought it would be. But at the same time I was expecting like half the major characters to die. Lol. The only negative I could say was the episode was too dark. Like really dark in the first half. So many of those characters were like rpg hero class. Fighting with endless endurance. Holy crap.

  15. Star Trek Discovery Season 2 was amazing. Significant improvement over season 1. Bringing in captain Pike, Spock and the Enterprise as well as tying the entire Discovery series into the timeline and canon of the original series was well done and extremely entertaining to watch. I wish they didn't f*ck up the klingons as much as they did in season 1, because aside from that Discovery is now a solid show that ranks up there with TNG and Voyager for me.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      @Strider Hiryu I didn't pay a dime for CBS All Access. Now that the second season is done you can get a free 7 day trial, marathon the entire series and cancel it. Aside from Star Trek Discovery there is absolutely nothing I want from CBS All Access. Same with if a season 3 gets made and eventually released 8 months to a year from now, I'll do a different free trial then too after the season finishes airing and watch it. Also, if you didn't finish Enterprise I highly recommend that last season and a half. You'll either love it or hate it since it takes the show in a completely different direction and the tech they show is pretty unique to.

      People gave mixed reviews for Discovery for many obvious reasons for season 1 if you watch it. They did the Klingons completely wrong and then try to say it was canon. My ass. Even with how they tried to fix them in season 2 they still screwed them up beyond redemption with season 1. I honestly did not like season 1 at all until they started a different arc 3/4 through the season. They also focused a bit too much on relationships. Straight, homosexual, etc. I wanted to watch Star Trek not watch some half assed relationship drama sub plots that takes place on a space ship. Season 2 was much better since it actually focused on the exploration first and foremost. The other complaint I saw was people complaining about the crew behavior, occasional swearing, and lack of discipline in some cases. Oh no, there was 3 swear words in this season! Blasphemy! -_-; To me it actually made the characters more relatable. Unlike in Enterprise where Scot Bakula's character and half the crew all tried to be boy scouts in space with too strong of a focus on emotional baggage.

      DS9 was good. I liked the Dominion war and found it very interesting. I think DS9 gets too much crap thrown at it because of Sisko's character progression into becoming basically a space jesus. lol. I definitely understand why people would want religion not mentioned in a space scifi series, but for DS9 it worked because it was unknown alien life living in a worm hole.

      I hated the Enterprise series with Scot Bakula. The last season of it was good but it was too little to late. With how Discovery season 2 ended they could make a spin off series of Enterprise with Pike and Spock for 1 or 2 seasons and it'd be great. As for Discovery, if there is a season 3 it'll definitely stand on its own at this point and could have the potential to spawn new series depending on where the next season takes the show.

The last lawn tractor I owned was a piece of crap hand me down that nickel and dimed me to death until I got rid of it and got a decent push mower instead. But my yard now has just over an entire acre of just grass. No way in hell I can push mow that. I might get a Cub Cadet or John Deere tractor. I need to see what might be on sale. I had the lawn mowed at the end of last year right when we moved in and its $40 per mow. x_x

  21. I never watched the original Fruit Basket because the description just sounded too silly. The premise of all anime is that at least one of the protagonists has a flaw. Luffy can't swim, Inuyasha turns human on the full moon, etc. I just generally dislike when a flaw is so overwhelming it's a massive inconvenience. BUT Since the simuldub started Friday I'll be watching the reboot. It seems to have a huge following and the first ep was quite good.

  24. Anthem isn't perfect. It probably should have been delayed another 6-8 months, but its a hell of a lot of fun. I just find it funny how Destiny can rack up big review scores with the similar issues and significantly less content. The popular thing to do right now is crap on EA, and its justified... but it'll be a shame if this game gets the plugged pulled on it early. There is a lot of potential here to fill the gap until the next gen consoles come. Arekkz has the most realistic take on the game, the rest of the YT community is just spitting out talking points which is kinda sad too see since they're suppose to be the alternate to big game sites.

  25. I finally passed the anime in the AoT manga. This next half of season 3 is probably going to end before they explain everything, where the titans came from, the world outside the walls, and how everything happened. It's interesting, but I feel like it makes the series lose a major component which was the mystery of why anything was happening. The anime is about to get as intense as season 1 was, but after that I can see people getting bored with the next season unless the really fly through this section of explanations. I don't think they will though because the anime has been the manga verbatim.

    1. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      The manga actually explains all that? Wow.. I need to start reading the manga again.
