  1. I have to get a dead tree cut down on my property. Its going to cost me $500. x_x But that doesn't include the removal. To save money I'll borrow a chainsaw from one of my friends and cut up the pieces myself. The tree is tall enough that when it eventually falls, it could hit my house, the garage, the deck, the pool (when its up for the summer) or my propane tanks so its got to come down.

    PS Plus Games

    I got Days Gone with the free PS5 game pack.. I tried to like it... It plays very similar to Last of Us, but the entire motorcycle aspect and never ending zombies annoyed the hell out of me way too much. I cleared out an area, went to grab some loot, next thing I know I'm being attacked again. The zombies were just spawning somewhere off in the distance and they'd just keep coming. I swear there was no way I could just explore without being harassed by something. Combo that with driving a loud motorcycle around that draws there attention and it got even more annoying. Theres hardly any roads but there is plenty of paths for the motorcycle. And I sucked at driving it. So I'd clip the damn thing on rocks or in a small river or graze a tree, well then the motorcycle takes damage and I have to repair it, or it would be in a spot where my guy couldn't get it back up right so then I'd have to respawn the motorcycle so I could get back on it, and thats when the game decides to spawn it a half mile from me. On my way to getting the bike I got attacked by 20 zombies. I couldn't just rush to it because these things run.. and the bike was damaged so I needed to clear some out to repair it first. Screw all that. I'm glad the game was free. Oddworld looks interesting.

    Playstation 5

    https://blog.playstation.com/2021/04/13/ps5-april-update-brings-new-storage-options-and-social-features/ At least the PS5 can cold store the games on an external now instead of having to redownload or install all the time when swapping between multiple games. Still can't play off an external but at least its progress towards the space limitations of the small SSD the system comes with.
  4. Looks like it'll be another season of Clone Wars but starring the bad batch. I'm cool with that.
  5. There was no huge extra cameo in the last episode, but damn this was a satisfying series in the end with an epic finale. Get past the first 3 episodes and its a completely solid amazing show.
  6. The only way we'll get any significant change is if we can get term limits and maximum age limits put in place for all political positions. The two political parties are all back and forth with their extremist views and they'll never agree with each other. Aside from the presidents that get swapped out, everyone in the highest positions of power are almost all the same old people that have been in power since I was a kid. They'll never agree on anything so they should all go. Instead they'll all keep hold of their power until the day they die. China could screw our country hard in a single day by selling its US debt holdings. China and Japan both hold over $1 trillion each of US debt and they can call in that debt whenever they want By selling their treasury bond holdings. As well as all our goods being imported from China our nation is completely dependant on China to continue functioning. They basically have us by the balls. They will be the main super power in the future surpassing the constantly divided seesaw USA. Neither Trump nor Biden should have ever been president. These old dicks don't represent the actual real average American in the slightest. https://politics.theonion.com/stress-of-presidency-already-ages-biden-10-years-1845565660 I laugh at this, but at the same time this is what he is now. I will be honestly surprised if he actually lives through all 4 years of his presidency. Back to the latest covid stimulus people on SSI will get their $1400 stimulus this upcoming Wednesday April 7th: https://www.cbsnews.com/news/stimulus-check-social-security-recipients-payment-irs-april-7-deposit/
  7. Regardless if it came from a lab or from some wet market it originated from China. I'm really surprised there isn't alot more news of countries raging against China's government and it's policies for causing all this. Instead we have asians around the world getting attacked with race crimes which is pointless as they're regular people like everyone else that don't deserve that shit and they have nothing to do with the Chinese government's failures. A year later and covid is still screwing over the country. The debt of the country is astronomical now and I'm guessing that's the same for alot of other countries. Thanks Chinese government for dropping the ball on everything and screwing the planet. NY decided to keep covid vaccines limited to the elderly only or front line workers for like 3 or 4 months. So of course because the majority of the people getting the vaccines were already old and unhealthy, whenever anyone got sick or died after they got a vaccine they blamed the vaccines. And of course all those cases spread like wild fire over the internet making everyone think the vaccine will kill them when most of the time it was other underlying conditions. NY's governor Cuomo finally decided to let younger people finally have access to the vaccine as of earlier this week. Me and lady got our first dose of the Pfizer vaccine yesterday. Aside from some arm soreness there's been no side effects for us. We get the second dose in 3 weeks. What we need at this point is a "herd immunity goal". We need states to issue a solid number goal to reach the removal of mask mandates. If they can say "once NY hits 80% immunity we'll remove the mask mandate". If we can get a statement like that it'll motivate more people to get vaccinated and we can check the progress daily to see how close we're getting to going back to normal. It'll be a great motivational boost for people to see an actual end goal in sight.

  9. Its been a month since my root canal. I had another appointment yesterday for the rest of the work. They removed the temporary filling, xrayed it to make sure its all good, then did the permanent filling, then shaved/shaped the tooth for the crown, then imprinted my teeth/jaw line with a mold, then put on my temporary crown. Took them an hour. My new permanent crown will be ready in 2 weeks and then I'll finally be done. This root canal situation has been quite the experience. $1200 total after insurance. I have another tooth that might need one if it gets another cavity. If that happens I think I'll have that one pulled instead since its in the far back. Screw all this. x_x

      Amen, next tooth of mine that needs a root canal is getting pulled and I really don't care where it is (I think I can pull the hillbilly look off, I already have the scruffy beard). They're to expensive (after all was said and done I paid roughly the same as you) and time consuming (especially considering all the follow-up shit until you actually get the permanent one). Definitely not worth it for a fake tooth no one sees anyways (well except your dentist).

      I got my permanent crown in a couple days ago. Honestly, I'm very pleased with the end results. The new crown fills in the big gap that was between the temp crown and the other back tooth where I had to have the crown lengthening done. The new tooth feels great and I was able to eat normally on that side of my mouth for the first time in two months.

    Sony is going to lose the "digital library wars". If we can't transfer over digital purchases from PS3 to PS4 to PS5 and they expect us to keep buying the same titles over and over if we want to replay them, then they will lose a good chunk of their customer base over time. I prefer my steam account over anything digital Sony is doing. And I agree with Yong about emulation. I'm glad it exists. I like buying games and giving developers their money for their work, but once I have I don't want to have to keep buying it over and over for another digital license because whatever provider I'm using decides to close its shop. I may be wrong but I think Nintendo has been doing it like this for years with the Wii and Wii U shop closures too.
  11. Wow. I haven't read Edens Zero in over a year. I need to get caught back up. Everything in the trailer covers the entirety of what I've read already and it should be really good.

  13. One week ago my little dog Elsa had to get a surgery to remove a few bad teeth. The vet initially though it would be 2 teeth, maybe 4 max. After they did the xray they noticed she had severe bone loss in multiple parts of her jaw and the majority of her teeth had to be removed. She has 1/3 of her teeth left. :( The vet thinks it is a genetic issue that caused the periodontal disease to ravage her jaw the way it did. Shes been healing but its been a struggle. Very depressing week but shes over the worst of it now. Shes starting to feel like her old self but we're still trying to find a soft food she enjoys. More bad news is after we heard it was genetic, we checked our other dog Bella because they are cousins and she has 2 loose teeth in the front. Once we get some stimulus money we'll schedule xrays for her to see if her issue is as bad. Elsa had horrible breath going on as the main symptom but Bella's breath is fine. I hope she only needs the 2 little teeth removed. My poor babies. :(
