    Vintage Pocket Watches

    i have a customer who works at storage units and he is allowed to keep valuables and throw away junks. he finds all sorts of things, pretty cool stuff. anyway he got fed up with ppl he was trying to sell old pocket watches he found so he sold them to me real cheap lol. gotta say, $70 each wasnt such a bad deal. top to bottom, copper one "columbia usa" dates back to 1896-1899. they all have serial numbers and he showed me how to identify them online. gold one "elgin" has inscription, obviously a gift from a mother to her son with 1924 on it. they both work (i have to wind em up) except silver one, another "elgin", havent checked its date yet, but he gave me that one for free. 😛

    Actually quite a few retailers had it live after the showcase yesterday (Target, Walmart, and Best Buy all had them live shortly after. Most of the streamers I follow were getting there's shortly after. Amazon was the only real hold out and that shit went fast (especially everywhere else)). Honestly since I'm not getting one of these until late next year at the earliest I'm not worried (no way to swing it financially this year, not with getting the Collector's Edition of Cyberpunk ($274) and pre-ordering the LE Violet Evergarden boxset + the mini-movie (which I was happy to find out was being released as well)). Happy they settled on a $499 price tag as that'll make it easier for me to get one after saving some money (I might have a job but I'm only part-time and I barely get 30 hours a week atm (at $14 an hour, fuck if that's not a kick in the balls and a non-living wage up here)).

    stayed up all night finishing up the final season. meant to play only one episode for that evening but couldnt put it down. it was really good, more story driven than previous seasons. clem longing for lee in her dreams, still seeking his advice/guidance, was a nice touch. overall they really put a lot of thought into this for their final project and not half ass it to just get it over with like some other game developers do when dealing with its sequels. i cared for almost everyone except AJ lol..crazy little bastard. i wont say much bc others who havent played this game yet, but the spoiler YT video i mentioned earlier i saw was only the half of it. it ended in a cliffhanger so i thought that was it but there was like 40 mins more left to a gamplay/story so im relieved how it turned out.

    ^ you were right. season 3 wasnt so bad. as soon as i encountered clem, things picked up and got interesting real quick. all my decisions were towards protecting clem but i begin to care for javi's interests too later on. and i actually got a happy ending for once. i thought either javi or kate would die towards the end but they all made it. kate wanting to protect ppl of richmond from hords didnt make much sense to me but whatever. storywise i dont think it affects season 4 that much. its kinda like filler to explain how clem managed to survive while caring for an infant. i think only thing that carried over from S3 to S4 is the bad haircut javi gave clem lol.

    This show was awesome. That season 2 finale though. wtf. With how they left the season on such a huge cliffhanger, I really hope covid doesn't screw up the production start date of season 3 too bad. Those kids grow fast in between filming seasons as it is. We might have a CW Riverdale situation where a bunch of actors noticeably in their 30s are playing high school students. After watching the first two seasons, I still emphasize with Johnny. Hes a great guy but everyone has their own flaws. This still reminds me of this video showing Karate Kid from Johnny' perspective: I can't remember who made these original quotes, but they apply to this story like almost everything else: "Everyone is the hero in their own story" "There is no bad guy, just people with different opinions that are doing what they think is right." Its all about perspective, I like when Johnny explained what happened on the beach way back then to Miguel. From his perspective Miguel was basically "Wow, Danny was a dick".

    ehh i think everyone got a plan until you get hit applies here. shoot him in the neck, get him in the face, idk, there really is no time to think as it happens so fast. you just act on your instinct as your head go numb. when i got robbed at workplace at gunpoint i just froze. i had my snub nose in my back pocket and i left one chamber empty bc i didnt want the gun to go off accidently while i was working so it was too late to draw my gun anyway but it wasnt even an option. i dont know why i thought i would have time to casually get my gun out, roll the chamber once and im ready for gunfight. lucky he only grabbed cash on register and left bc other customer was pulling in. but my former coworker got worst of it. someone quit so my schedule changed and i had to go to a different store to help out. it was a slow night so he was putting motor oil in his jeep when 4 men with shotguns and pistols came out from corner and dragged him inside and beat him (kick, punch, pistol whip him) pretty badly. he normally have his pistol tucked in his back pants. but on that night he left the gun under the counter. extremely lucky robbers didnt find it when they were searching everywhere for valuables. while they were getting away he grabbed his gun under the counter and pointed at one of running robbers and "click"..his fking pistol was jammed. he wouldve been so so screwed if he had his gun on him. he said he had that gun for years, never had prob with it so he was very shook. just imagine i was suppose to work that night. and another time i was opening the store in the morning when alarm went off bc i forgot the password. cop came and stood outside asking for my ID. i have my ID in my car so i reached for my keys..But i had forgotten that i keep my gun in my front pocket now fully loaded bc of that 1st incident. i was like oh shit, ppl die for this shit. remember that guy who got swatted by his game buddy as a prank, he reached for his front pocket and died as a result? it wasnt even that long that i watched that video and commented i would never be that stupid and here i am doing the same thing. i glanced at him as he was looking at something else so i casually reached my back pocket to get my keys out. just to show, you just never know when or how its gonna happen. i planned and played in my head numerous scenarios if i ever get attacked and need to use my gun, i would do this and that, but when it actually happened, i didnt even have time to think. just be alert on your surroundings but nothing else you can do about it.

    2020 Predictions?

    Ok so here is the brutal part. If someone is in your home that doesn't need to be there, you shoot to kill. There are too many risk factors involved with keeping someone injured and alive. Why are they there? What kind of person are they? I listened to a podcast done by a "retired" burglar. He basically said if he had gotten held at gunpoint he would have surrendered and beg for his life but not everyone is the same. He also said laminated windows was the best deterrent against thieves as they're too much of a hassle to break and get through. Most burglars will just give up because its too time consuming which increases the risk of being caught. Its always an in and out job... mostly in the day time. All that night time stuff is mostly just Hollywood. But back to the issue of shooting someone. If you hit someone with birdshot, unless its in the face and you take out eyes, once they get their bearings again they could be dangerous, especially if they're under the influence of meth or some other type of drug. These people may have had no intention of harming anyone but now they're hurt, scared, and not thinking rationally. They're bleeding, they might have transmittable diseases, they're going to attack you now because they chose fight instead of flight. Maybe its just someone down on their luck, you shot them, they lived... now they're going to sue you for their hospital bills and try to get some extra. (there are actual cases of this happening). Shoot to kill... dead people can't sue you or attack you after the fact. Killing someone can be traumatic, but is the stress of the unknown worth holding someone at gunpoint with a phone in your hand until the cops arrive? What if they flee? I'm sure your state is much less forgiving by law if you shoot someone in the back even if its in your own home that they were robbing. You know this, and let them escape... will they come back for revenge? Are they waiting outside for you when you take out the trash to hurt you for trying to kill them? Maybe and most likely not.. but its always gonna be in the back of your mind. Now when I say shoot to kill, you shoot someone, they go down... if they're still alive writhing in pain. I'd say tell them not to move. Again its a fine line... don't empty the mag/clip/tube into them to make sure they're dead. That will definitely constitute as an execution. I don't know your state laws, I'm just going on what I know from certain states where this is such a touchy issue. In my state, you can in fact shoot someone in the back, in your yard, in your car... that all constitutes as your "castle" as they call it. Now if they drive off in your car you can't go driving after them and empty a mag... you'll get hit with reckless endangerment. If you want to go the route of non-leathal there is insurance for self defense shootings. the USCCA provides it from like $30-50 a month. It provides you with legal defense in case someone sues you for shooting them. In some instances your homeowners insurance can cover it. It's def something that needs to be researched. And one more time. Get off the .22!!! Unless you gonna be shooting snakes, squirrels, groundhogs, and other small mammals. Plus if there is ever another school shooting, or any kind of mass violence, .22 ammo will be non existent. People buy them all up in a panic because they're cheap. I remember after Sandy-Hook and congress started discussing gun control there was an absolute frenzy on ammo in almost every caliber. But even after things calmed down it was months before .22 was available regularly and the price jumped significantly. Its a shit round good only for the things I just mentioned. Its more to do with the velocity of the cartridge than the actual round size. A .223 or .17 hornet is basically a .22 with a shit ton more gun powder behind it. Basically its the difference between putting a philips head screw bit at the top of your 8th grade science class baking soda rocket and then doing the same but putting it at the top of a Saturn V rocket. .223 doesn't kick bad if you're worried about your wrists and elbows. There is a reason the military uses .556 (just a .223 with more umf... a gun chambered with .556 can shoot a .223 much like a .357 mag can shoot .38 special rounds... just don't shoot .556 out of a .223 or a .357 out of a .38... the frames aren't designed to handle the pressure). Here is a coyote gun for under $500 with the scope. Savage Arms is a pretty good budget brand... and this video isn't 20 min. It shows the kick pretty good. There is a heavy barrel variant which will mitigate recoil further. I saw this at sportsman outdoors site with a rebate. I don't know if you have any brick and mortars of these up there. The thing about gun retail is that the prices can wildly vary from gunshop to gunshop and big box retailers. Big box places like Academy and Bass Pro are going to be more expensive most the time than your local FFL dealer. And its always worth scoping out the price on the internet at places like budsgunshop. To buy a gun online, you'll have to consult with your local gunshop, they order it for you. But you have to ask what their transfer price is. The shops generally have a set price for transfers so they can make some money off a better deal you found online than they have in their inventory. If you want to see some wrist breaking action tho..... Its time stamped to skip to the good part.

    That shotgun looks like it'd be great for me. All I'll be using it for is home defense so as long as its reliable and functional I'll be good with that. Thats some impressive range with a shotgun. I like that. I mentioned in that snapchat, I was thinking shotgun for slugs for defense for everything, but that .22 could be good for shooting theives in the neck. lol. Or least for wildlife control. If I need to put down a coyote from some big distance or at least scare it off the .22 might be good for that. I know people that like to use their .22 for killing ground hogs to remove them from their property. Birdshot could be good for in home defense so I don't accidentally kill anyone with a slug going through drywall. Eh.. In the end I don't have much money for gun purchases, I'll probably stick with just the shotgun and slugs when I can afford it. Good news is I feel safe enough to actually own a gun now. Safe as in my nerve issues in my arms has reduced significantly. I think its all thanks to the exercises I've been doing over the last couple years. Its been a year since I've had any numb arm issues while sleeping and I haven't had my fingers or thumbs twitch in a year either. I've dropped a couple things a week ago but that was me being clumsy and my hands were wrecked from using heavy ass pipe wrenches that entire day. Before I couldn't trust myself to own a gun when I could have potentially dropped a loaded weapon. Lol. When I first moved I had to do the same thing. We moved in October but it was too late to update our voting registration so we had to drive 20 mins to the old polling place. But we still lived in the same district so it wasn't really a big issue. We have been using scantron ballots here for years. Since they all have a unique barcode and number for each one and that number is then attached to the person voting, it ensures everyone gets their one vote. I never signed up for mail in ballots this year so I'll be going to my polling place and using the good old scantron and feeding it into the machine. As far as I know the mail in ballots are the same scantrons and once they are received by the elections, they feed them into the machine themselves. I think its funny how some people think that voting fraud can happen so easily when it seems like a good system with accountability. I think the scenario most people think about is some old 80s movie where they stuff the high school prom ballot box full of fake votes to make sure someone gets to be king or queen. Its so stupid. Voting in an election is taken way more seriously than that. I will say tho, if there ever is any voting fraud it needs to be fully investigated and people need to go to jail. The latest article I saw for voter fraud was where people voted twice in Georgia. But it was discovered and they'll be prosecuted. https://www.nationalreview.com/news/1000-georgia-voters-face-prosecution-for-casting-multiple-ballots/ Well now those people can spend the next 1-10 years in jail. In NY, if someone got an absentee ballot, mailed it in and then went in to vote, it would be spotted pretty quick by the computers once those ballots are scanned in. People who intentionally vote twice deserve their sentence. I will say tho, I'm glad mail in voting is become more available, theres some places with crappy polling locations that serve way too many people. If I had to wait in line 5 hours to vote I doubt I'd ever do it. Every place I've ever lived has been pretty straight forward tho with only a 10 minute wait on average during a presidential election.

    Voting in my state use to be similar, but now you must have ID, and the ID must match the address listed. I'm generally a cheap bastard when it comes to renewing my licenses. It costs $40 now I think? for 4 years. (use to be 5 but I guess they trying to get that money). So one year I moved in the middle of my licenses lifespan... and I had to drive 20 min to my old polling place rather than the one 5 min from my house. We also use to have electronic booths. But after so many complaints about hitting something and the opposite lighting up, and hackers, etc we now do scantron ballots. You fill them out and then you feed them to the machine yourself. Getting a firearm takes less than 10 min here. No waiting period. Just have the money and pass the background check and you're bringing home a new handgun/rifle/shotgun. 100 round drum mags? No prob. I have a 50 round mag for my glock I casually bought for $50 with my debit card, in and out. I think you have some misconceptions about the .22. You won't kill a bear with that or much of anything outside of a squirrel. Shooting a bear, you're gonna pray it gets scared and not pissed off. There are videos of guys shooting beers with 00 buck shot from a 12gage and they just get scared and run off... To kill with a 22, you'll have to hit a vital organ. bears are big, it won't crack the skull at range, and it won't hit their heart at range. You'd have to hit the heart of a human, otherwise they'll easily survive and continue their attack. Getting shot is def not like in the movies. Plenty of videos of people committing a crime and getting pumped full of .45 and they run off full sprint and die somewhere else. No one falls down and dies instantly unless it hits the brain or explodes their heart. No birdshot either. 00 and slugs only for defense. Dick Cheney shot someone in the head with birdshot and they lived. Its literally just 20 or so BB gun pellets packed into a shell. Its designed to do what its named after. Kill a bird. You def won't harm a predator animal with it. If you get a rifle there are tons of things to consider. First .22 is not good for self defense from people or animals. 30-30 and higher is... but you have to take into account your surroundings. You don't want to hit someone's house and hurt them. Bolt actions are impractical outside of hunting, and I doubt Semi-Auto is worth getting in your state. So a lever action like a Winchester or Marlin 30-30 would be optimal... but they'll run you $700+. Get a Maverick 88. Its Mossberg's budget shotgun you can get for like $200. 12 gauge, perfect for what you need. It's going to kick... but most of the time that's overstated. Yes your shoulder will hurt if you go out and shoot it 30 times. If a firearm isn't kicking its either heavy enough, or you can't defend yourself with it..... or you're rich and can own a Kriss Vector. Which you probably can't in NY. The Maverick's cheapness seems to come from the lack of luxury features. A full on mossberg will probably cost $500-600. I have a semi-auto Mossberg and I paid $680 for it. You can easily buy a Maverick and get the after market pad for the butt stock among other upgrades. Firearm accessories are straight forward and easy to install most the time only requiring your hand or an allen wrench.

    As soon as we find out who loses the sooner I'll celebrate their loss. If Biden loses I'll finally be able to have that box of Corn Pops I would've bought during the democratic primary. If Trump loses I found this perfectly named place that serves Crispy Orange Flavor. I would get both Chicken & Beef versions.

    I marathoned season 1 over the weekend. I started season 2 yesterday and I'm half way thru it. I might finish it tonight. I'm loving this show. It's like they accomplished an 80s feel in current times. The comedy parts of Johhny being so stuck in the 80s is hilarious.

    Whoa, season 2 was really good. They end on a big cliffhanger. I highly recommend this series. Its a fun watch with a lot of good comedy balanced with heavy issues. It's a must for Karate Kid fans that are now adults. Edit: Its on Netflix now btw.
