      I SEE YOU IN YOUR HOUSE.  THERE IS A TABLE AND A CHAIR AND A LIGHT.  I KNOW THE GOVERNOR IN YOUR STATE AND HE WILL DEAD YOU IF YOU DO NOT SEND ME $37 BY WESTERN UNION.  NOW I TYPE THIS ON MY P-P-P-POWERBOOK AND YOU MAKE MONEY ORDER FOR CHARLES MUGU.

      Y'all got table and chair money?

  2. My wife scheduled a credit card payoff and went "Wow, I didn't know you could schedule payments in advance!" ....am I the only one who does? LOL

      You can?

       

      I don't think I've ever had any extra money to try that maneuver.  LOL

      Ha! Yeah, this has been a long time coming. Been there done that. We're pushing to eliminate all short term debt by end of the month.

      Is there a waiting list I can get on?  I need more broken, cat-piss-drenched electronics.

  6. I've decided I'm selling everything 10 years from now. Going to post the sale thread now though, because if the necrobumps are an indication, future me is gonna be a millionaire!

      Yes. I'll be the first to admit I was wrong one year ago when I forecast a crash due to unemployment and other effects of the pandemic. It seems that many of the people into video games have mostly been unaffected, possibly even had a boost in finances leading to prices still spiraling upwards.

      Good thing we have multicarts and emulators, in the future that will be the only affordable ways to enjoy this hobby. 😕

      Over the past 25 years I found emulators less frustrating and more reliable than the old hardware anyways. So bring'em on!

      We're trying to not be fatasses (I lost 90lb but then gained 30 back in the last 2 months due to depression) so we have to cut any sugar, but I'd love to try this with Dr. Pepper sauce!

    2. thanatos

      thanatos

      Yeah, definitely will have to try that one.

  11. I am utterly convinced that Panera stays in business only due to the "inoffensive and bland office lunch" market.

      We got one here in the last year or two...Never been there.

      I'm not surprised they're located in upper class locations.   I know of one in a snooty, rich area. 

    3. x=usr(1536)

      x=usr(1536)

      The only use I've found for Panera (outside of emergency WiFi when travelling): they do a decent-but-not-amazing clam chowder in a bread bowl on Fridays.  If nothing else in the immediate area seems appealing, it's doable, but if there are other options I'll generally just move on down the road to someplace more interesting.

       

      And I've always wondered if the same people who designed their store interiors also did doctors' office waiting rooms in the late '90s / early 2000s.  Similar colours, textures, even the furniture has that trying-to-be-nice-but-it's-still-institutional feel to it.

  12. Man, that VCS thread needs some Preparation H. I'm sure the Amico guys are friendlier!

      She will probably just use him for target practice :mad:

      Make up some piece of paper, make it yellow and copy some cryptic symbols from a movie and a warning in English wrapped around said paper.  "If he enters your house, he must not leave!" - "You have been warned.".  Stuff it into something on the monkey and "discover" it.

  18. Every so often I get the desire to post in the Free Stuff forum with things like "FREE: River Patrol 2600" with the OP just being "Gone, thanks!" to see how many people would need a new pair of pants.

      DO IT.

      I typically have terrible luck, but have had a couple of those things, kinda big ones, happen the last couple years, is always a nice bonus for losing so often in the past!

    *Exclusives may be available on other platforms from day one, and may, in fact, be games from other systems ported to the VCS.

      I pretend-ship to myself, with items I already own, you can print sample shipping labels from Stamps.com.  Since everyone always sharpies most of it out, voila.  New package in the mail, whenever you want!
