Ignorant Assholes

I dislike people pushing their religion into secular causes, especially when religion is a main cause of the problem. One of the gay rights activist pages I support posted an image with a cross in front of the equal sign. All the self proclaimed Christians responded with praise. I wanted to puke. It is religion, their holy scriptures that are the primary force for inequality for the gay community. People who claim to be Christian and do not follow their scriptures aren't, they're cherry picker

Authentic Mexican Queso Cheese DIp

Ever go to your local Mexican restaurant and order that small bowl of liquid white cheese... ah Queso dip... pretty good stuff even if it is a $2 rip off... Ever wish you could have some at home to go with your tortilla chips? Ever waste you money on all those so called "queso dips" by tostitos or some Mexican sounding brand in your local grocer's deli? I've spend years melting cheeses, trying dips, and NOTHING could even come close to replicating what you can find at the restaurant. It was like

New York Style Pita Chips - Parmesan, Garlic & Herb

I've seen these "New York Style Pita Chips - Parmesan, Garlic & Herb" (huge name) in the store before but I never bought them because the price of the bag seemed a bit high for the amount of product. So when I came across this bag that was "50% more free" I jumped on these chips. I've never had Pita chips before so I had no idea what to expect. The packaging is nice, the chips look good but like I said, the size of the bag is what put me off. Here is a small bowl of the chips. The

Cheetos Mix-Ups Cheezy Salsa Mix

I saw these at the store a couple weeks ago and decided to try them out. Cheetos Mix-Ups Cheezy Salsa Mix sounded like a nice mix of heat that would give my taste buds a good work out. Unfortunately, they left much to be desired. While the packaging looked great and the claim of hot spiciness lured me in, these cheese poofs did not deliver. Upon opening the package the smell was odd. A weird combination of aromas that I was not expecting. This product features 4 different flavors, Cheddar, Ja

Lay's Sriracha

Lay's Sriracha is one of the three new Lay's potato chip flavors available as part of the "Lay's Do Us A Flavor" contest. I haven't had the chance to try the other two flavors, but I did get my hands on a bag of these. I have to admit.. I have never tried Sriracha sauce before so I have no idea just how spicy the sauce is by itself. I've heard that it is intensely hot and based on the picture on this bag I can only assume its going to be extra spicy. The chips themselves are a bi

Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings

Doritos Jacked chips are thick, large, bolder tasting versions of their regular Doritos lineup. So when I saw the Doritos Jacked Ranch Dipped Hot Wings flavor I had to try them. The packaging details really jumped out at me and being a fan of the Ranch flavored doritos the blue color really grabbed my attention. The chips are huge like all the other Doritos Jacked chips and the flavor is almost spot on for what it claims to be. The Hot Wings flavor is a spicy buffalo flavor with a hin

Lay's Stax Buffalo Wings With Ranch

I tried Lay's Stax for the first time this week and got two different flavors. Original and Buffalo Wings With Ranch. The originals are nothing special. I used those as a base to evaluate the new flavor I was interested in. Original Lay's Stax taste just like Pringles Original except the chips are about 1 1/2 times thicker. Buffalo Wings With Ranch look exactly like they do on the packaging. One side plain with the other side flavored. The chips were very consistent with no one chip m

Chicken Adobo

Ok, so this is a modified version of one offered by Cooks Illustrated. We found that if you make it as they list it, there's not enough sauce! But we made some adjustments with the quantites, and this works out well. Very tasty and tangy, without being really tart. ----------- Ingredients 4 (5- to 7- ounce) bone-in chicken thighs, trimmed 1/3 cup soy sauce 1 (13 1/2-ounce) can light coconut milk 3/4 cup apple cider vinegar 8 garlic cloves, peeled 2 bay leaves 1 teaspoons pepper 1 scall

vBulletin 5 Connect... dodged a bullet there

vBulletin went straight from beta 28 to Gold release with no release candidate versions and they even upgraded their official forums to it. WTF. There is no member list, no users online list. Notifications are horrible, its buggy as hell and looks like crap. http://www.vbulletin.com/forum/ The only thing it has going for it IMO is that the mobile version looks decent on a cell phone screen.. but even then I came across some 503 errors and pages that failed to load. So buggy. They say "

Give that woman a gun

I consider myself Progressive in my politics, sometimes my views are liberal views, sometimes they're more conservative. When it comes to guns I lean to the right, seemingly out of character for me as most of my friends and fam would consider me a liberal. Sorry, but neither side has me brainwashed, I think for myself. Gun ownership is a right. Gun collectors, just like action figure collectors, can choose what they want to have in their collection. Background checks are necessary to keep guns f

We're not friends

So, I unfriended you on facebook and now your ass hurts. Oh well, too bad so sad. You'll delude yourself(you're very good at it) into believing that you got the kick to the curb because of a conversation about religion, that is just not the case. You got the steel toe because I see what kind of person you are and I am not friends with people like you. You are an ignorant asshole so deep into your cult that you live in a created bubble of delusion and refuse to step outside of it. Any "friend" o

Dodge's big Super Bowl fumble

http://youtu.be/sillEgUHGC4 There, now you've seen it too. I tried three times to watch it and couldn't get to the end, finally this morning I read the transcript to get through it. Again I was struck by how religion poisons everything. The body of the piece is homage to the hard work and rugged lives of those that put our food on our tables and its lovely. I worked dairy farms the latter half of my teens and I know the work that goes into the milk you pour over your cereal. Farmers should be

Richard Dawkins: Faith

Surrounded by a puzzling and often frightening world, people from almost every culture have come to trust in the improvable and supernatural. Here Richard Dawkins remembers when he broke with this pattern and became an atheist. http://youtu.be/Sm220Q5wks4 sadly I must put my faith in humanity and hope that there is enough good in our species to keep us going

Abortions for Rape Victims to be Criminalized?

Published on Jan 24, 2013 "A New Mexico lawmaker has drawn fire for proposing legislation to classify an abortion after a sexual assault as "tampering with evidence." Critics pounced on House Bill 206, introduced Wednesday by Republican state Rep. Cathrynn N. Brown, of Carlsbad, saying victims of sexual assault could be charged with a felony if they sought an abortion after rape or incest. But Brown said Thursday that the legislation was aimed at attackers, not victims."* Republican state Re

      My Mobile game spending habits have been pretty tame. I'll drop a few dollars on Arknights banners now and then. Azur Lane, I have it to a science to generally go into events with 100+ cubes to get everything. But lets face it. Azur Lane makes it's money off skins... and the best way to get skins is to make it easy to get the ships. Arknight's skins are mad expensive, and I only found out last week that the Siege one I really want is gonna be free with Contingency Contract coming up! Other than that, they don't do much for me as the E2 art looks amazing as is... and I'm the only one that gets to see them so I can't flex.

      Azur Lane tho I can flex with my defense fleet in PvP. Plus you can have multiple secretaries grace your home page at random. Being a man of culture, I can appreciate all the fan service bikini skins they throw out there... but it ain't for me. The in game chibis have to look just as good as the secretary full art to get my money. That being said... they just had to bring out a bunch of black dress skins.... and FINALLY Enterprise gets a skin that's not prudishly modest. INSTAPURCHASE! I went to town on the Qipao skins a few months ago. I'll probably buy most of these as well. I'll buy skins for characters I don't have yet if the art is good and the in game model looks cool. (I'm so glad I bought that Taihou L2D qipao now that I have her )

      It was snowing just 2 weeks ago and now it's practically a heat wave with multiple days in the 80s. I got my window air conditioners in, but the outdoor support for my big one broke when I was testing it. The window I need this AC unit in is extra wide and can't support the weight of the unit so last year I used an umbrella stand with a metal fence post with a welded pipe on the top. It worked great, but the umbrella stand just not have been good for the weight and it snapped during my test.
      So I spent today making a new support brace out of wood. I used a 4x4 and some scrap 1x6s I had from deck work I did last weekend. It's working good, I just need to fill dirt under the bottom of the base boards and then place some of my huge ass rocks all over the base for extra stability. It's all pressure treated wood so it should last for years.



      Probably hard to tell from the pics but that's like 40-50 pounds of wood.

      I got to Rear Admiral on Azur Lane's PVP. My fleet isn't meta so I probably won't finish at that rank. I can't compete with all 120s with a retrofit Warspite. Shes way too strong and its been a year and a half since they had the event to fully retro her. I'm 20 blueprints away from maxing Monarch and I got Amagi to 100 already. It's my backline that's holding me back. I'll have Tashkent, Belfast, and Ayanami to 120 by next week. 
      So many new ships tho. I got everything on the new rate up except Swifty. The French event is coming up and I pounded out 20 clears of SP3 to get Tartu. I wasn't paying attention and didn't realize you could get her for free until 2 days ago. I'll have to expand my dock again soon.... but anyway I hope they bring back the Warspite retro event... its BS it needs an event. They should have put it in a grindy head pat mission. Sandy too... I hear i need her AA for world 12. I'm half way through 10 right now.

      I've used Yahoo mail for the better part of 20 years now. A few years ago they started adding these intrusive adds that look like emails, and you can accidentally click on them. They've always had ads on the side or as a video when the inbox is empty, but these are annoying. I guess one of the last Ublock updates made is possible to suppress these ads. Every once in a while I'll see it for a second loading in and it goes away when Ublock blocks it.
      Now Yahoo has a pop up that demands the blocker be turned off or it reverts back to "old yahoo mail". At first this was an easy fix to where you could just turn the new version back on after it reverts... which serves no purpose outside of looking modern. But now you can't swap back until you tun it off or pay a sub fee... my email bookmark loads into the new version anyways, but the tactic has become more aggressive to where you can maybe click 2 times before it pops up again.
      I mean what a joke. I'm not disabling my blocker out of spite. I use my phone email app more anyways, which blocks all ads. Yahoo gains nothing since they freely give out the POP3 info for you to use outlook or any other 3rd party email program that their ads can't be seen on.

      Its finally warmed up around here. It snowed earlier this week and we've had over night freezing multiple days. And then abruptly it was almost 80 yesterday. now it's back down to the 60s, but at least it looks like winter is finally over. Now I can get some more yard work done without freezing my ass off. Lol.
      And wtf.. we have gifs again? I thought it was disabled. Lol. Maybe ipb re-enabled it at some point and I never noticed.
