Taming the White Arabian Horse the Easy Way
When you Google the best horse in RDR2, people say that the white Arabian horse is the best one and they'll tell you where it is and that you need to reach chapter 2 before riding to the spot. I was playing around in chapter 2 for a while before riding all the way there, but there was no horse in th...

If you hate slow motion walking, don't buy Red Dead Redemption 2 (or just avoid chapter 4)

Posted by Random Terrain, in PS4, Video_Games 16 November 2018 · 94 views

My sister bought Red Dead Redemption 2 for me as an early Christmas present since I have to keep spending so much time in bed and the game was pretty good until I got to chapter 4. You already had to walk painfully slow in camp, but chapter 4 is when there are many spots where you have to walk really, really, really, really, really, really, really, real...

The Greensboro Science Center and Their Unhealthy Air

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 01 July 2018 · 202 views

I went to the Greensboro Science Center on June 26, 2018 and barely got past the penguins (into the next room with the jellyfish) when I got a horrible tickle in my throat from the crappy air. I drank some water, but the real relief only happened after leaving the building. They're in desperate need of some air cleaners or negative ion generators or bot...

ET's Favorite Candy (1980s Reese's Pieces Pillow)

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 08 March 2018 · 475 views

My sister got this misprinted pillow in 1986:

Here's the text version:
IT's Favorite Candy
I don't know when it was made, but I do know that American Foam Latex Corp. made it. The pillow is roughly 10 inches by 22 inch...

The Adventures of Gallbladder Boy

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 04 February 2018 · 322 views
A Wonderful Hellhole
My gallbladder was removed on January 11, 2018. Below are some of the things that I remember. I'll update it if anything else comes back to me or my sister reminds me of something.
After checking in and paying a lady, It didn't take too long in the waiting room before my name was called and I was taken to a small room with a curtain on the front. A...

How to Zoom in on Terraria (PS4)

Posted by Random Terrain, in PS4 28 December 2017 · 2,194 views

I got PS4 gift card money for Christmas, so I bought a few Pinball games for Pinball Arcade and Terraria was only $2.99, so I grabbed that too.
I had Terraria for the Xbox 360 and had no problems with it (except not liking all of the demon stuff), but this PS4 version is zoomed so far out that you can barely see the character you're supposed...

Gallbladder Surgery and GoFundMe

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 28 December 2017 · 226 views

Found out yesterday that my gallbladder surgery is scheduled for January 11th. My sister is planning to help us move stuff to the apartment on the 8th, 9th, and 10th. Looks like just about every potential AtariAge donor has already donated, so please share this link at other web sites: https: //www .gofundme.com/duanes-squishy-adjustable-bed  Th...

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 13 December 2017 · 267 views

My sister told me yesterday that I won't be moving until around the second week of January 2018. I guess that's good news for the GoFundMe page . More time to reach the goal!
$2,227 of $3,500 goal raised by 48 kind and generous people in 17 days:

This Atari 2600 VCS ad was in the September 1982 issue of Playboy . It's the same one I have on my Atari's Promise Means It's Not Cheating page.

They Want to Take Out My Gallbladder

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 27 October 2017 · 470 views

I told the gut doctor what game_escape said about a friend getting a HIDA scan , so he scheduled one for me on Monday (Oct. 23). They called me on Thursday to say that the scan showed that I need my gallbladder taken out. They contacted a surgeon who will schedule a consultation. I guess somebody will call me next week.
In case anyone wants to kn...

Moving Soon, So I Could Be Offline for a While

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 13 October 2017 · 461 views

The new place will be ready in about a week, but it could take 700 years to pack up everything. I have no idea when I'll lose my internet connection. I'm pretty sure it will happen this month (October 2017). If I disappear for a while, you'll know why. My upcoming absence will be tough on you, but try not to cry while I'm gone. :D

Ghostbusters (2016) [It does not inhabit the same universe as the originals.]

Posted by Random Terrain, in TV_and_Movie_Related_Topics 26 August 2017 · 491 views

I get STARZ for free and I noticed that the 2016 Ghostbusters was going to be on, so I recorded it. I was out of things to keep me company while doing tedious work on my web site, so I started watching/listening to it.
Since the movie came out, various people have been arguing that the film is a continuation, not a remake or a re...

Now It's Not My Pancreas

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 07 August 2017 · 511 views

Continued from a previous blog entry . I went to a gut doctor today (a belly specialist). He said that the numbers aren't high enough to be any form of pancreatitis. According to him, the scans don't show anything wrong with my pancreas. And my symptoms don't match up either. He thinks it's probably my gallbladder and the no fat/low fat diet I'm on works...

I Thought I Was Having a Mild Heart Attack on Monday

Posted by Random Terrain, in Personal_Stuff 23 July 2017 · 441 views

Around noon on Monday (July 17, 2017) I thought I was having a mild heart attack. I had been having slight pressure in the middle of my chest for days and it would usually go away if I rubbed the area, so I thought it was just a strained muscle. This time the pressure wasn't going away, my whole right arm was tingling all the way up into my fingers, I was...

Amazon Wishlist and 2 more...
I got an e-mail from a friendly person today. They couldn't send me a gift from my Tip Jar Wish List because the address was blank. I went Googling for the answer and found out from an Amazon forum that an Amazon Wishlist shipping address is blank by default. You have to click on "List Settings," then click on "View Details," then change the shipping...

Camo Moth

Posted by Random Terrain, in Nature, Personal_Stuff 02 June 2017 · 681 views

This is the blog post you've been waiting for all your life that will change the Internet forever!
No, not really. It's just a crappy blog entry about a common moth. I don't remember seeing this one before in real life, so I took a few pictures of it. The moth is called the Pandora Sphinx Moth (Eumorpha Pandorus) [Camouflage Moth]. I left the imag...
