    The gentleman's gazette has popped on on mine a lot... and apparently on many others. Dude must pay YT for a favorable algorithm. I've never looked up anything on men's fashion before so I have no idea why I ever got recommended his channel.

    I wonder how many looters will get the CV? Pretty amazing how irrelevant social distancing is when you're smashing up shit and stealing. Some people I've been connected with on social media have completely be indoctrinated to woke culture. One of them told me razing the whole city too the ground and ruining everyone's life was worth getting the cop arrested. That's how fucked up these people are. Dude would have gotten arrested without the city getting destroyed. The video evidence is clear.. everyone was going crazy because it took more than 24 hours to make the arrest. Now he is arrested and people are still destroying property.
    What started the whole conversation was this person compared the riots to the Boston tea party, and then got triggered when I said that the Sons of Liberty didn't take the tea home with them, they dumped it in the harbor, they didn't destroy the ship, and they didn't set Boston on fire. A lot of people that were upset at this murder have had their cars and businesses destroyed... And people out there wonder why people are upset at the looting and rioting. These people have no where to shop now for essentials. The elderly and disabled can't drive 40 minutes to the next town. When you inconvenience the general public, you're not going to gain sympathy for your cause no matter how righteous. Basic human nature causes resentment if someone can't live their life... they really wont give a shit about someone else dying.

Some of the comments in the videos are hilarious. "this guy has more houses than the Kardashians"

    I really enjoy Clone Wars. I'm into season 5 now. But I still have major gripes.. like every "escape" ever fails. Every escape ends in capture of everyone or someone where they have to go back and save them. They still fall back on silly story arcs. Like it was really getting good with the whole Savage/Maul episodes, and then we go to younglings and droids doing missions. I will say Hondo is such a great character. It would be cool to see him and Cad Bane in a future season of the Mandalorian.
    General Grievous was such a wasted opportunity in the prequel movies and so was Dooku. They honestly could have canned the whole idea for Ep 1, never had Darth Maul at all and just did 1-3 with Grievous and Dooku as the main villains.
    You can tell that Respawn were Clone Wars fans. They did an excellent job with Dathomir and Ilum in Fallen Order. I'm sure it was/is much more of an experience for Clone Wars watchers to go to these places.

    Honestly Spotify is one of the best things I've ever come across and the best $10 a month I've ever spent. They've got a ton of shit from podcasts (quite a few in fact), pretty much an endless library of music (with some exceptions based on region, more and more stuff is added constantly (they've been adding a shit ton of anime soundtracks and I couldn't be happier)), and a ton of other shit. Quite honestly Rogan made a damn good choice (especially considering rumor has it he got $100 million+ for exclusivity). He might not reach as many people (not entirely sure on what the usage numbers for Spotify are but almost everyone I know uses it) but with that kind of money who cares.

    I didn't know HeluvaGood made cheese, We have their dips down here. I'd say Cracker Barrel takes the cake here. (Not the restaurant ) They have a lot of good super sharp cheddars. For me its gotta be packaged in something different from what Kraft and store brand uses... I guess its a hangup of mine. They also have a pre-sliced bar that you can get some ritz crackers and some fancy deli meat to make some top tier lunchable stacks.

    My deli has a whole case of just random cheeses. It gets really exotic around the holidays, but the rest of the year most the stuff in each category is pretty similar. They got some super sharp cheddar that will put anything else to shame in the lunchmeat/dairy case. Its just like $8 a block though. Since my company is pretty big on selling wine I guess we try to keep a large variety of imported cheeses. The big plus side to that is I can always get goat cheese when ever I want. If you like some real pungent cheese flavor, not much can top goat cheese.

    Now I need to try prosciutto. Lol. That sounds great. I'll keep my eyes out for speciality meat sampler packs at the store. I'd love to eat a fancy lunchable like that.
    I've only had smoked cheese once, it was good.. but smoked mac and cheese was another level of yum. There's a variety of cheeses around here at the wineries and apple orchards and distilleries for tourism. Next time I hit one of them I'll have to take some pics. I like to get a bag of fresh cheese curds sometimes. My go to cheddar cheese is helluva good brand.


    The special reserve does taste more potent but actually tastes a bit too strong sometimes so I mostly stick to buying extra sharp. It tastes great on some triscuits with a slice of pepperoni or summer sausage. Their jalapeno jack is pretty good too. But I don't like helluva good shredded cheeses. I swear they're too greasy if you melt it, like on a pizza.

    I've bought the store package Prosciutto and its really good... just super pricey. There are a few sub shops around here that have it as one of the meats and I always go for it because its a distinct flavor. Its a little pungent, and slightly chewy. Its good with some salami, pepperoni, or ham. Don't make just a whole prosciutto sandwich, you'll be chewing for days. Its sliced very thin for a reason. Its almost like when you don't cook bacon long enough to a full crisp and there is that end section that's a little chewy. Capicola and Soppressata are really good too. If you ever find a sampler pack at your deli, its worth a try. My deli even has mozzarella sticks wrapped in prosciutto. And the meat dept as a fancy "lunchable" with prosciutto as well. Its not made by lunchable tho its some other brand. I can't remember the name. If they ever have one of those premade Charcuterie packages it should have some of those meats in it. I love "exotic" meats and cheeses. I'll try them all when I see something I've never had before. Cheese is a little harder, because a lot of "different" cheddars and whatnot all taste the same, and smoked cheese is hard to find around here but I loved some good smoked cheddar or gouda.

    Season 3 the series has definitely picked up, and has started shifting towards more mature despite the TV-PG rating. But it kinda fell back on dumb situations nearing the end here. Like Ahsoka getting captured by lizard people in the middle of a war that has nothing to do with them? Really? My main gripe is how often Jedi get KO'ed and lose their lightsaber. Especially to inferior enemies like droids. I also like how Savage Oppress could become an intermediate level force wielder in a couple of days... wtf? So many Jedi have died so easily in this series.
    I feel the most sorry for Padme though... not only does she have the same rib cage as 3CPO, but she's constantly getting undercut. Like all her plans fail and her friends get killed. Obviously she can't know that Palps is one step ahead of her at every corner. But even as a viewer in the know, its still frustrating to watch. The show does do a good job of making issues that you already know exist, still evoke a negative emotions.

    I'm trying to understand the mechanic of the meter at the bottom. It looks like a type of stamina meter.
    I doubt there is a small amount of hit points, and its the latter. I dunno if you've ever played the inFAMOUS games, but Sucker Punch has generally had the theme where you're super OP on offense, but incredibly weak on defense. So if I had to guess, they kept with that and while you hit hard, so do the enemies and they can kill you just as easily if you aren't at least a little methodical. During the samurai game play, it looked like you could parry and land a one hit kill, but some of the enemies he didn't and had to hit them 2-3 times. It looks like they had a guard meter he broke before landing the kill. I'll assume taking more time kill someone while surrounded will be risky.
    Like in all the inFAMOUS games you had crazy OP powers that could one/two shot any normal enemies in the world, but all it would take would be a a few people with guns to take you out in 3-5 shots. You had to use the cover and dodge system, you couldn't just button mash and go in full charge. It was an interesting balance of satisfying offensive power, but keeping you honest when facing tough encounters.

    The problem is, they'll never not touch it. Even if they make some kind of law that they can't they will. Some POTUS down the line will sign and executive order citing some emergency and take out of it. People don't care because they don't understand that it won't be there one day when it's their turn. The generations coming up after us, have no sense of self reliance or general responsibility. Also, a lot of people think it will be enough for them to live off of, which is what happened to the people I know. They thought they could just live off social security when they retire, because i assume at some point long ago, you actually could. The only way anyone could do that now is if they have their shit 100% together, have every single debt paid off the day they hang it up, and then live frugally the last years of their life.
    Thankfully the company I work for has private stock you earn off accumulated hours. You can also buy some at certain times of the year. If I work here for another 30 years, I could live off the divined checks rest of my life. Apparently more people retire from my company as a millionaire than almost any other company. There are some people raking in 100k a dividend check. Of course that could always change in 30 years, some shitbags could get on the board and decide to go public and ruin everything. Seems to be my luck in this industry. The last company I worked for, people that been there for 30-40 years were making bank and ran the thing into the ground for everyone else as they hopped off the sinking ship.
    Social Security should be abolished. It should be paid out to a certain cut off date for people, and when they die it should be done away with. In its place should be a federally insured private savings fund. Something you can set up with your bank. There should be something that strongly encourages people to set this up, like a tax break, and maybe while you can't touch it until you're 65, you can still collect the interest off of it while it grows. Have other options like said interest can be deposited right back into it, and you can add more into it yourself at any time. While you could up how much of your check goes into it, there has to be a reasonable base minimum. that way people can't just put $1 a week in and complain that the system doesn't work. There has to be a new system where the government isn't "safekeeping" it for us.

    Social Security was already obsolete. I can't count the amount of older people I know that hit retirement age and had to come back or do some part time work to supplement. The government has abused it for years, borrowing from it, all the way back til the Clinton presidency, maybe even the HW era. I gave up on it long ago and won't be counting on it to be there. At this point it should just be abolished, its not cool it gets taken out of our checks and it wont be there when its our time to collect.
    As we slowly open back up, the businesses that didn't make it are coming to light and its a damn shame.
    Honestly the Federal Government isn't fully to blame. Remember at one point the WHO said the damn thing wasn't even transferable or contagious. Because the head of it was put up there by China... I mean the guy wouldn't even acknowledge Taiwan's existence in a press conference.  Maybe the Fed could have handled it better either way, but the WHO and China lied about a lot which gave the rest of the world a late start on preparation. The travel bans were also called racist and blocked by judges. Our own bullshit stupid ass partisanship made this worse than it should have been.

    Everyone is just trying to line the pockets of their base now I guess. These "relief packages" should only be helping the public, it should have nothing to do with Unions, Illegals, Pro Life, Pro Choice, Anti or Pro 2nd Amendment, Free speech, or anything besides helping people. this pork barrel shit is getting so old where we hold up important legislation because of some fucking wishlist by one side where they block a resolution for something that's completely unrelated.

    My meat market manager tells me its coming. Here we're having trouble getting everything except beef. We have limits on chicken and pork. The Deli is having issues with the brand name meats, and the chicken orders are getting cut inconsistently. I think because not enough people are paying attention, and its not being widely reported, meat has a chance to rebound quickly. Otherwise there would be another panic buying wave.
    I think the most impressive thing so far is that Corona beer is still on the shelf. They stopped production last month, they must churn that out like crazy. Even with the sales taking it hit because of dumb people and name association, it's still impressive that we keep getting deliveries. Although I've noticed recently its mostly light and extra and not regular Corona.

    The only neat mechanic from BFV I'd like to see come back is the squad leader perks. The best thing about BF4 to me was map diversity. There were large ground maps, large maps with naval battles like Paracel Storm, and there were close quarters maps like Operation Locker/Metro, and that one map that was a flooded city so you went from rooftop to rooftop and could use a boat to travel down streets and what not. No health regen needs to be its own mode. I'm sure if people like that, they'll make their own servers for it. That also needs to be a thing, they need to bring server rentals back. Playing Back to Karkand on 300% tickets was a hell of a good time. A match that could last an hour or more and be fun the entire time is pretty unheard of but BF3-4 achieved it.
