  1. Onion Steak Burgers - Mmmm... you should try cooking some of these. :drool:
  2. I got my SAB orange Kaiser Snake warhorn! So incredibly loud and annoying. XD btw this video was taken with the Windows 10 game recorder and you can see how bad my graphics card it. It can't handle playing a game and recording at the same time so on the recording the FPS looks horrendous.

      I bought the SAB glider for my Druid since it matches electro blue. It has a nice trail effect and makes random SAB sounds when deployed. I love it when it makes the "OOOOH BOY" sound the NPC makes when you're beating on the cage. XDXDXD

      I makes that sound!? lmao! Thats awesome. XD I'm going to get that blue mace since I love the flail animation and it should match up well with frostfang. I'll also get that blue warhorn just so I can complete my personal SAB warhorn collection.

      Only sometimes. It's always a random sound. XD

    Looks like Battlefield 5 will be announced the same day as the new generation of graphics cards. :D Once these cards get announced I'll be watching current gen card prices drop and finally get my new card. :D

      Battlefield always sets the benchmark on graphics. Running 60 players on a map with multiple vehicles and stunning visuals is def a chore. XD

  5. A SSD hard drive is a significant upgrade. I now want one of these for my main PC. I wish I'd have bought a cheap 256 GB one during black friday just to have the OS and a few games installed on while keeping my 1 TB regular drive for everything else. For my laptop I only have the one hard drive bay and this 480 GB is plenty of space but a 256 GB would have been way too small. I can now boot up my laptop in seconds. After hitting the power button, typing in my password, clicking on firefox.. only takes 20 seconds. :D It could go faster but I wasted a few seconds in shock staring at my password screen and typing slow. XD Everything on the laptop now loads up fast.

    GW2 still takes a while to load, but I think thats because of the online nature of it and my CPU/GPU taking too long to render the game. Regardless of that it still loads all maps literally twice as fast now. It takes almost a full minute to load into the character select screen after logging it. But all maps, including Lions Arch, all load in 10 seconds for me. I wish I had one of these for my main PC since I stream all my games off it. I can get my daily login rewards way faster on my laptop with my alt accounts now and if I'm just farming nodes it'll probably be faster for me to use my laptop now than my main PC. O_O

      DeathscytheX

      I've seen people complain about the SSD not loading fast for GW2 after the last update. Some say they have really slow login-character select load times right now. It could just be a bug.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      That would make alot more sense. It doesn't make sense that my laptop running a ssd will take a solid minute just to load into the character select screen, but my pc will load it in 11 seconds.

  6. Amazing how any news about a celebrity can go viral but news about a nuclear power plant leaking for 4 years only gets covered by the local press.

    XD

  8. Fairy Tail is officially ending. Only 10 chapters left. This writer turned this series into garbage plot lines. :windows: I'm genuinely pissed at this manga now. Not because favorite characters are being killed off like most manga/animes do at the end.. Not that any main characters at this point are in any real threat of dying since every character seems to be immortal. Being mad like that would be a good thing since it means I feel for the characters and the overall plot.. But instead I'm mad because the writer threw so many random plot lines into the story over the last year that its become laughable like a bad soap opera. All long term plot lines are pretty much negated and last minute characters and plot lines now resolve everything.. something that was just revealed 10 chapters ago now solves half the danger to the planet that has been build up as an ultimate power throughout the last 400 chapters. wtf.

    I'll compare this to DBZ. Imagine all that build up how powerful Freeza was.. but then right before Goku is going to fight him, Krillin found some magic orb and then Bulma kicked it at Freeza and killed him. No big fight with Goku, no planet namek getting destroyed.. hell, Goku never even met Freeza. Thats the equivalent of what just happened. WTF.

      WTF.. another chapter another horrible plot twist. Once again a major character that died is actually alive again.. and another major enemy was just defeated with the emotion of love. :shake:

      Sounds like it has as much depth as Bobobo-bo Bo-bobo :P

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      lol. I'm surprised there are still 9 chapters left. Unless some enemy comes back to life to do another fight (this would not surprise me at all), then these last 9 chapters are all basically going to be an epilogue since there are no enemies left to fight.

  9. I finished LoTR: The Fellowship of the Ring yesterday. Great novel, but if I ever read it again I'll skip the first 150 pages of hobbit only adventures. lol. After that chunk the book turned out to be great. And the fan theory about Gandalf telling them "fly you fools" as in get to the eagles is debunked to me. Theory:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/lord-of-the-rings-cast-major-fan-theory_us_561dca5fe4b028dd7ea5b392

    In the novel the word 'fly' was used as the word run in multiple instances. It was just the writing style. I'm glad they kept that scene like that in the movie, but Gandalf had no secret meaning when he said that. He was simply telling them to run for their f*cking lives or they'd all die in Moria.

    1. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      All I have to say is Tom, you know what I mean (it's the only part of Fellowship I actually enjoyed outside of Moria, I really wish they would of put him in the movie). Everything else before the Council meeting could pretty much be left out (I could care less about how many meals a Hobbit has in a day or how a proper Hobbit should live). Don't get me wrong I love Tolkien's work and I love how he crafted an entire world in just 3 books (technically LotR is one book just split in three) but seriously I don't need all this set-up just for it not to mean a damn thing in the next two novels (as much as I love the Ents they're probably the only real downside to The Two Towers (though they do redeem themselves).

      I honestly can't believe people actually thought that. "Fly" has more than one meaning, get a fucking dictionary people. The context it's said in is a dead giveaway as to what he meant because how the fuck do you fly out of a mine (with a Balrog on your ass at that). As much as Tolkien is great at alluding to certain things in his books there is no denying he meant "run for your fucking lives" and not "fly on the backs of eagles". Nerds will never cease to amaze me (yes I say that knowing full well I am one).

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I thought Tom was the most unbelievable character. Lol. He was definitely interesting but singing all the time was a bit creepy to me considering. Especially since he is so powerful he can simply basically order anyone or anything to do something by singing it. He sang a song to the hobbits and told them to go strip down and play in the river. Next thing you know we got naked hobbits frolicking around for a couple paragraphs. XD

  10. I finished the Magi anime series last night. Its a really fun series, alot of action and decent plot. Alibaba is a bit to much on the high moral ground for me to really like him as a character, but all the rest of the characters like Aladdin (not even close to being like Aladdin from Disney, lol.) and Sinbad really make the series enjoyable. I watched the Sinbad series first because I didn't know any better but that didn't really take anything away from watching the full series afterwards. Theres 3 Magi series on Netflix and it doesn't make sense to me that they're 3 separate series when one is actually the second season and the Sinbad series is an OVA.

    For anyone interested the order is: Magi: The Labyrinth of Magic, Magi: The Kingdom of Magic and then Magi: Adventure of Sinbad. The Sinbad series starts off really strong with action and adventure and then basically turns into a story about how he became a big time merchant. ehhh.. The other two series felt more like a regular action/adventure anime with increasingly bigger fights and power ups while still having a good plot.

      I asked Lady.. "How about I get some pants like that? Would it look good on me?"

      Lady: "All that thigh hair.." :barf:

      XD

  11. I finished watching Chuck earlier this week. Great series but a bit repetitive with 2 specific plot lines. I do recommend it. Its a great series about a guy working as a "Nerd Herd" employee (aka geek squad) at a Buy More store (best buy / walmart combo), he gets an email that basically puts a CIA app into his brain and he has the entire nation's secrets but he can only access them when he gets a visual stimulus. Like when he sees some terrorist guy at a party, he'll "flash" on the image of the guy's face and then the app does an info dump and now knows everything about him and his organization. So now he goes on missions with the CIA/NSA while maintaining his cover of working at Buy More.

    Its a fun show with some good campy action expected from a CBS series but Chuck wines way too much about his feelings. I haven't heard a guy talk this much about his feelings and emotions since Boy Meets World. The fifth season shouldn't have been made IMO. Crappy ending to a good show. The endless Subway in show advertising is intense too. wtf. There was a foot long sub promo in 1/4 of the episodes. XD

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      Boy Meets World fa life. XD I loved that show.

  12. I finished watching Fringe this past weekend. What a unique show. The first 2 seasons is it's own version of X-Files (without alien stuff), the 3rd and 4th seasons then becomes an espionage thriller, and the final season time skips 20 years and becomes a resistance series where the team has to defeat a powerful enemy. lol. Combine all that with a couple soft resets because of changes in the timeline, an alternate universe with duplicates of people, crazy technology and a handful of individuals with mutant like powers and it definitely makes the show an odd yet interesting experience. I highly recommend it as its a great show to marathon.

    The final season probably shouldn't have been made tho but it does finish some of the plot lines not resolved in the season 4 finale. Netflix does screw up a bit. They put an unaired episode into season 1 at a completely wrong moment that broke up the season finale in such a way that I had to google search wtf was going on.

  13. I got my new monitor today. Holy crap IPS makes a difference. With a visa checkout discount I got this one for $84 today:

    http://www.bestbuy.com/site/acer-h6-series-23-ips-led-hd-monitor-black/4751006.p?skuId=4751006

    Only 1080p and 60Hz refresh rate but damn its nice. With this monitor and my gtx 1060 I'll be able to play every game on ultra for the foreseeable future as long as my cpu can handle it.

  14. I just noticed this photo editing site that actually looks quite functional. I have add-block on so I don't know how heavily advertised it is, but it really does look like a photoshop program right in your browser:

      On a side note, I visited the GW2 forums today out of curiosity since I haven't been in forever. Its so funny to see how Thief is talked about like Necros were for the longest time, Necro is loved and adored now. XD If only Ele got knocked off their perch it would be amazing. Even on reddit when someone asks what class to play, the Ele mains come chiming in with their ele master race blah blah. Ah I got to experience what it was like to be at the top for 3 days with #SymbolicAvenger #Guardsway2015. XD

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      Lol. Ever since I stopped playing pvp I stopped looking at the official forums. I remember the warrior forum being salty for a year but now the condi warrior is good again.. but only in pvp unless we get accessories with stats only obtainable from LSW2 achievements or from the raid. Imagine if berserker stats accessories were only available by completing every jumping puzzle in the game instead of from the laurel vendor. -_-; anet needs to rethink what they consider rewards.

      Ele is probably still the best because you only need one build for it to be strong. As a warrior I have to keep swapping my build depending on what content I play because warrior traits are a mess. Most of the time if I'm solo I'll stick with one build, but if I'm in a dungeon I keep swapping between 2 trait lines and re-equipping my warhorn depending on if one part requires skipping mobs.

      I would recommend reaper for everyone. Just set it with berserker stats and have fun.

  16. I ordered some stuff from amazon last week and signed up for the free month of amazon prime, mostly because "prime day" is tomorrow. I remember prime day last year.. I missed nothing. XD

      Eh.. In the end I didn't buy anything on prime day. Nothing really jumped out at me as something I must buy that day. I bet the majority of the sales were people that buy discounted items and then relist them on ebay. This is becoming so common that its worse than the GW2 trading post. All the newest graphics cards are instantly bought and relisted on ebay for $100 more than what the person bought it for.

    3. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      They just had a bunch of crap that I didn't need. Doom for $29 was tempting... but nothing else really went on sale. When I found stuff that interested me it was some lame $5-10 off deal, while other things were 30-50% off. They also made it really difficult to search prime deals only by category or via the search function.

    4. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I hated trying to find anything for sale. It was almost impossible. It was like hanging out at Walmart all day but not being able to browse and instead have some guy announcing to everyone that bulk packages of pop tarts, an exercise bicycle and women's speed stick were all on sale for the next 20 minutes and we'd get an update again on more sales soon. Screw that selling strategy.

  17. I saw this article on my local news this morning stating that Trump is losing NY by 30 points now. He says the media is corrupt and hes only going to lose if the system is rigged. The thing is tho hes really loosing NY because he has no presence here. I've seen numerous Clinton commercials over the last month and I've gotten 3 phone calls from the DNC asking for donations and support. But there has been absolutely zero pro Trump commercials. Nothing from super pacs or from his own campaign. And those commercials against trump are pretty damning to his credibility. I know Trump says the media is corrupt but unless he actually pays the media companies for commercial time hes setting himself up for a loss. I'm actually starting to think he wants to loose on purpose at this point. If he has no interest in even trying to win his home state I don't see how hes going to win this election at all. Its so odd to see more commercials from my local republican representative trying to win his re-election and not see a single commercial for someone running for president.

      Honestly he'd be wasting time in NY. Republicans never win there, and probably never will again. NY and CA for Democrats is like the south for Republicans. He has to win Ohio, Florida, Virginia and NC to win. http://www.washingtonexaminer.com/pow-its-just-a-2-point-race-clinton-38-trump-36/article/2599471 polling data is all over the place, but everything could change one way or the other with the debates. 

    3. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      NY has voted democratic for i think the last 9 presidential elections. I figured if any republican had a chance at flipping it, it would have been trump. But it looks like he's ignoring this state, at least for now. This could easily turn into a tied race at any point. I agree that the debates will be huge deciding factors for alot of ppl.

    4. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      He has the best chance, and it would be a killing blow to Hillary to win NY. I don't see it happening. I want to say Reagan was the last to win NY and CA for that matter.

  20. Me and a buddy made some bulk sausage last night. It was a fun experience using a meat grinder for the first time. I have enough sausage in my freezer for almost a year now. Only cost about $20 for this amount. My friend bought way more pork butts than me and we made sausage for hours. Lol.

  21. My mattress has been killing my back and sides for over a year now. I kept adjusting how I was sleeping, got a mattress pad, etc. Screw this thing. I bought a mattress in a box from walmart.com for cheap. $140. I thought about getting a memory foam one but I read that they trap heat too easily so I went with a Slumber 1 brand coil spring.

    Sure as hell this mattress showed up in a box. It was vacummed sealed in a bag, folded and rolled up. When I broke that plastic seal it inflated so damn fast that it made a whistling noise thru the plastic bag as I was cutting it open. lol. It feels pretty comfortable so far but I have to let it air out for "full recovery" for 48 hours. I'd have rather gotten an expensive really nice beauty rest mattress or something else from a mattress store, but I'm tight on funds. This seems decent enough for now.

    1. DeathscytheX

      DeathscytheX

      I've been sleeping on the same Sealy Posturepedic mattress for almost 20 years now. XD Its actually the most comfortable mattress I've ever slept on for me. Anytime I'm in a hotel or another bed, its just not as good. Looking at the prices now they are $1000-1500 X_x I think I'll be keeping mine for as long as it lasts.

    2. Sledgstone

      Sledgstone

      I hear that. Really good mattresses are super expensive. x_x A lot of mattress commercials make sense tho. We do spend about 1/3 or 1/4 of our entire lives laying on one, might as well make it a good one.

    3. Strider Hiryu

      Strider Hiryu

      Fuck my old mattress was fucking amazing, sadly it went to hell in about 5 years (I spend a lot of time in my room since it's where everything of mine is located so you can about imagine how much time I spend on my bed (between gaming, watching anime/movies, reading, and up until recently playing games on the laptop)). Only mattress I was able to sleep soundly on (and it was only $500 or so) but I had to get rid of it two years ago because it was really starting to kill my back. My current one isn't bad (I went a little firmer than my old one, still comfy and still a pillow top but it's not the same) but I'd kill to get another mattress like my old one (don't remember what brand it was and we don't have similar mattress places like the one in Arizona where I bought it).

      I'd really love one of those Sealy mattresses but fuck are they expensive. One of these days I'll have one

  22. The first presidential debate is this monday. I can already predict the winner..

    Fox News: "Donald Trump crushed Hillary in the debate!"

    MSNBC: "Hillary easily won this debate!"

    NPR: "There was a heated debate between the two presidential candidates with opposing views on tax reforms and Syria."

    lol. NPR is so boring compared to the other networks, but at least it's news. XD After the debate, and all future debates, everyone who has already decided who they want to vote for will feel reassured with their decision and feel more substantial hatred to that person's opponent. I'll watch fox news and msnbc the day after the debate to see what each party's commentators believes are the positives and negatives.

  23. These GW2 events I skipped out on doing over the last couple months are actually pretty fun. I've got some new skins to unlock. I think I'll change up my warrior's look a bit this weekend. :D

    I could have made a new character look like Mei from Overwatch, but I didn't buy the wide rim glasses when they were available.. and custom head pieces can't be used with outfits. ;_; Theres a perfect outfit/glasses combo to make Mei, but the game won't allow the combo to happen.
