  1. Got in on a reservation for the Legends Pinball. Nice!

      You made it on a list!

      And it's not even World's Biggest Nerds!

  2. Insurance called. They decided to total my car. :( Oh well, a real shame I had to go ahead and buy the Nissan 370Z I was looking at. Sad! :D

      They installed an NES in it and it became completely worthless to anyone with taste!

      sad that a 40 year old Atari sitting outside in storage for at least 2 decades still works and will outlast $20k vehicles built less than 10 years ago....

      Congratulations? 

       

      Not sure how to feel here. It's bad that you had a car wreck, but good that you're getting a cool new car. (I assume there was a wreck, & that no one was hurt.)

  3. The game *I* like is clearly superior to the game *YOU* like in every way, shape, and form.

    1. DoctorSpuds

      DoctorSpuds

      My console with an identical game library to yours is far superior to your craptastic console, because the box is nicer. Nyeh!

      Just bought Greedfall for 14 bucks on the PS4. It's clearly not the best game ever. I've been 'playing' for 10  to 20 minutes and all I've done is practice fighting and run to various NPCs to tell them that I'm leaving. It also has the look and feel of a PS2 game. I think 14 bucks might have been too much to pay.

    3. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      ^Well,  I doubt it's as fun as a PS2 game.

  4. Wait, you guys play video games? LOL, nerds.

      We also eat tacos too.

  5. The way 2020 has gone, I'd be more surprised by now if someone told me Soylent Green is NOT people.

  6. Got rear ended at a stop light today. Other driver nailed me at high speed and threw me in the intersection. Shockingly, my car suffered....a cracked bumper and nothing else! His is totaled though.

    1. Austin

      Austin

      Glad to hear you're OK man. I've been through the same thing--other car totaled, mine not as much. Still an unexpected, shocking experience though that catches you off guard, and one I don't generally wish on others, haha.

    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      I had it happen at a stop sign 2 blocks from my house, with only one other car on the road, and this girl slams into my back end pushing me into the intersection, broke off my lower body kit, but didn't hurt my bumper.  Pretty sure she was on her phone ...and her passenger was on her phone... It was quite a surprise!  And my back felt better after that too!  Haha...

    3. Rogerpoco

      Rogerpoco

      Glad yur OK!

      There must be something involved in physics that allows that to happen, as it's happened to me twice as well, once was the passenger in a big...Buick(guessing)(Land-Boat), the truck that smashed into us was destroyed, steaming radiator, we just drove away unscathed(after the police came, obviously). Second time, was in a line of cars waiting to pick up my kids from school, me driving, Wife with me-we were in her Sister's car, that we affectionately called "The Bean", I dunno what it was either, but one of those tiny "bubble" cars they made for a while. Girl came top speed and smashed into us, the back went a couple feet in the air, we bumped into the car in front of us-the car that caused it was smashed all to heack, but there was no other damage(I cracked my head on the windshield, but neither broke, I guess...).

      Lucky Us, I suppose.

       

      *Edit*

      Definitely agree, get checked out. Not a fan of Doctors, and avoid them as much as possible(I'm a nurse, giggle), but you definitely want to get at least your back checked out.

  7. Oh, for just one time

    I would take the Northwest Passage....

      Too many Zombies on that route.

      Just make sure take a truck and ram those zombies off the road. 

  8. Never thought I'd live to look forward to seeing ONE WEIRD TRICK ads (instead of "another type" COUGHCOUGH) again!

      Pretty sure I follow ya...Just so they're not Slideshow Stories (Click Next Page...Click Next Page...F U !)...Those are the worst!  Especially if you thought maybe you could read a quick article...

  9. Had quite a few trick or treaters! I set up a Google Home blasting Spooky Scary Skeletons out front to welcome them. LOL

    1. CPUWIZ

      CPUWIZ

      How many did you manage to tie up in the garage?

  10. $1500 to rebuild the suspension on my Camry....

     

    But mechanic says everything else is perfect mechanically, not bad for 232k miles!

    1. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      Agreed! I also take an environmental position regarding cars. I think people treat cars like disposables when the materials used to build a new car offsets the minor gain in fuel efficiency, and since this Camry is still getting 26-28mpg, it's better for the planet to keep it running as long as possible and get a new car only when I NEED one, rather than when I WANT one.

    2. CPUWIZ

      CPUWIZ

      I remember rushing to the store in that Camry, to get Cathi stuff for her wound and we bought a shitload of beer in the process.  LOL

    3. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      Hahaha we got like 60 Tecate and the damn store didn't have cartons of smokes so we bought like 10 packs......

      Also..where did you get that Atari soft brief/attaché case?

  13. In the new house. My gaming room has access to the front balcony. Why, do you ask? For evening whiskey and cigars after a group gaming session.

    1. Machine

      You have "King Oil"?

      Awesome!  I'll bring whiskey!

  14. Moving into our new place tomorrow! Our space just increased by 3x square feet.....LOL.

    1. thanatos

      thanatos

      Congrats!

      My wife has hinted a few times over the last few years that our place was "too big", and we should think of downsizing.  And then 2020 happened and we both work from home.  Her opinion has changed drastically.  :D

    2. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      ^Too big!  Haha...No such thing.

    3. thanatos

      thanatos

      Well, her main reason for wanting to downsize is that I would have much less room for game/computer hoarding.  :D

  15. Passed the bar exam. Law license acquired.

  16. I think they need to rename the internet to "Anger Generator 9000," because it seems that's all it's good for anymore.

    1. jaybird3rd

      jaybird3rd

      ^ Well, we're all human, but I like to think we keep that under control here better than most places.  If we're made aware of personal attacks and insults, we'll deal with them as needed, but of course we can't be everywhere at once.

    2. ledzep

      ledzep

      Porn isn't angry, hahaaha.  Neither is online shopping, of which I'm doing more of since I don't want to hang out in a hospital.  I would add fantasy sports as a benefit but that is going down the toilet for the moment.

       

      But it is what you make of it.  Don't be an asshole, don't let assholes get you upset, everything goes pretty smoothly.  The anonymity and distance convinces closet assholes to reveal themselves, allowing you to remove them from the give a shit list.  I see that as a positive, less people to be concerned about, I had my doubts about that guy but now they are confirmed, etc.

      I know. I just lost it big style with an asshole on FB earlier. Think I need to go see my therapist before I start hunting one of you f***tards down. <j/k>😘

  17. Among the disks I got with my IIc are some uhh "adult" themed software. They're hilarious. If anyone is interested I might make a thread about them! (Only showing the SFW title screens and describing them in SFW detail with a shot of the disk)

    1. CPUWIZ
    2. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      Whoever made these disks should be banned from life. This stuff is the worst. LMAO (and by worst I mean "just really stupid shit" not "disgusting")

  18. Got my Apple IIc working! Almost half the disks I own are hacking and cracking tools. LMAO

    1. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      Megaphreak, Epyx Crack, Anarchist's Manifesto, you name it....plus 6 disks full of hacking texts and how-to's.

  19. Is it just me or have prices for just about everything "retro" skyrocketed into ludicrous territory?

    1. GoldLeader

      GoldLeader

      Yeah Adventure Vision by Entex!   Always wanted one but never saved the dough for it.  In 1982 (Sears Catalog) they were $80 (came with Defender) and each game was $15.  So $125 for all of it!  I kept meaning to order one but something else would come along, bought a mini pinball, bought Atari and Coleco games, and a Vectrex...Then after I got a computer + Internet, and found eBay...Well, they've been in the thousands ever since!  (Haven't looked lately,  Would 2 grand still get ya a complete set?...Probably not)

    2. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      I'm glad I kept what I kept at least. Though sad about selling what I sold (near complete SMS collection (both US and EU) and my PCJr and /4a stuff) at least I'll pretend they got me here today. LMAO

    3. thanatos

      thanatos

      Yeah, it's the opposite of what I thought would happen.  I thought there would be a lot of selling and lower prices due to furloughs and businesses closing.  Crazy.

  20. Well damn. ARRL exams are cancelled until further notice. Damn virus. :(

  21. Just emailed to schedule my Technician and General Amateur Radio License Exams 😎

    1. BDW

      BDW

      Good luck! Technician is pretty common sense and General shouldn't be too tough if you studied.

    2. Cebus Capucinis

      Cebus Capucinis

      Thanks! Yeah, Technician just seems like basic radio use / common sense. General so far seems pretty simple also. I'm getting them for emergency purposes in case we get stuck Jeep trail running in the desert!

  22. Surely you can't be serious!

      Rumack: You'd better tell the captain we've got to land as soon as we can.  This woman has to be taken to a hospital.  Elaine: A hospital?  What is it?  Rumack: It's a big building with patients.  But that's not important right now.
