  1. I just thought of a clothing piece -- a one piece jumpsuit that looks like you're wearing dress slacks and a button down shirt. It's all built together, so no messing with belts and suspenders. It can even have a simulated belt. Step into it and do up the buttons on the shirt part.


    A onesie for lazy office workers.

      What if ya just screen printed all of it on the suit so you didn't have to worry about uncomfortable buttons or collars?

  2. Hunter (1984-1991) is on Tubi - all seasons. Cool formula -- tough rule breaker paired with a beautiful fellow misfit on the force. Mopar heaven with McCall's 1984 Dodge Daytona Turbo Z which was later upgraded to the newer version.  I've watched 4 episodes already. "Works for me."

      I used to watch it.  Also, in 1989 I once hung out with a girl that looked just like a younger version of the girl on Hunter...It does beg the question...Tubi or Not Tubi?            



      Haa    (Yeah seriously I have no idea what that is...Every other day there's some new website or streaming dealio...Hmmmm)...

    3. jd_1138


      It's just a website that shows movies/TV shows. They pay for it by showing commercials occasionally.




      I think there's also a Tubi app, but the website works as well.

    4. Sauron


      Yes I've had good luck with Tubi. Even though it's ad-supported, I just haven't seen all that many ads, maybe one per episode.

  3. Yeah those SE's were made until 1990, so she could conceivably typed the essay in like 1994-1996 when she was like 13 to 15 making the computer only 4 to 6 years old. I remember our computer lab having Apple IIe/IIC's and Mac 128 and 512 computers even in 1991 when I graduated. Some of the IIe's were probably at least 10 years old.

    But if you try sometimes, you just might find, you will get the Vienna Sausage that you need.

    2. atari2600land


      But Vienna is in Austria, not Germany. You are making me quite Hungary, though.

  5. I just want a simple living room with a macrame fern hanging in a corner, a hi-fi setup with an ELP album on, and a bag of 1970's El Taco fast food. Is that so much to ask?

    1. pce_collector


      In my experience, yes.

    2. GoldLeader


      I'll bet you could approximate it,   If  you're not already...

  6. Google Messages app keeps crashing on my phone -- Moto G4. Anyone else have this problem? I reinstalled the app and same thing.

    1. jd_1138


      I just downloaded the Verizon Messages+ app, and it works even though I don't have a Verizon account. I have Consumer Cellular.

  7. I put like a $500 item on ebay. Somebody asked what the reserve was, and I replied "I think $125" (I couldn't remember exactly). Turns out it was $150, so the maroon proceeded to bid it up to $155 against someone else in the last minute of bidding before it ended. Then she had the nerve to message me asking if I'd lower it to $125 since I told her I thought it was $125 reserve. She also said she couldn't afford $155. :)  I just cancelled the auction and relisted it and told her to go in with her $125 bid and don't go a penny over $125. Some of these people are so dumb it's amazing they can get up in the morning and dress themselves.

      Thanks Goldleader for the kind words. I will admit to some self-serving though, as I am sure the item will probably go for $300 on the next round (hopefully). So the minute she sent me the message saying she couldn't afford the $155, I admonished her for bidding more than she was willing to spend. Then I hit "cancel order -- buyer cannot afford".  :)

    3. bluejay


      @GoldLeaderI just decided that I'd be a nice person, canceled the order, and kept the system for spare parts and experimenting. But now that I think about it I should've said that:)

    4. GoldLeader


      @jd_1138 Oh,  I kind of misunderstood, thinking you meant for her to win the auction at $125, (I wasn't even thinking on how that would work)...Either way you were the nice guy for letting her off the hook.

  8. I bought a vintage slot car racing set by Tyco at a yard sale for $5 the other day, and today my older brother (49) and me (47) set it up to see if it works. It was like it was 1979 again.  :)  It works fine.

  9. The seller really shot themselves in the foot by not boxing it all up -- measuring the dimensions and weight to plug into the listing. Then the seller would pay the exact amount for s/h. He's going to have to box it up anyway. Makes no sense. Too rife with risk doing it his way and against ebay policy.
  10. I bought a mint Nintendo 64 console and 2 original Nintendo controllers -- all for $2 at a yard sale today. I feel guilty about wishing it had come with more items. :) It works great.

    1. Magmavision2000


      Did you time travel back to 2006 and go to a yard sale? You never find deals like that anymore (at least in my area).

    2. jd_1138


      Yeah these items are also hard to find around here too.  It was a 1 in 100 deal.

    3. GoldLeader


      I'll give ya $6 for it.   Wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait wait...Wait,  Lemme explain.  You won't have to worry about it at all and you can safely say you actually Tripled your money!!!





      Hey man, Great Score!!!!

  11. Some dingbat wanted to buy something I had on CL.  I (at noon) asked if 3PM would be ok, described my vehicle, gave her the address of the Sheetz travel center, etc..  I said: "if I don't hear from you, I will assume 3's not good for you, and we can meet later today or tomorrow."  Never heard from her.  So at 3:45, she sends an email asking where I am, that she's been there since 3, why aren't you here, etc..  Good grief.  So I sent her a message saying I could be there in 15, and she said never mind/forget it!

    1. GoldLeader


      Heh...Some people are easily confused.  Maybe you should have said, "I'm thinking 3PM, Call to confirm."

    2. Machine


      I had a women beg me to hold a CL item for a few hours. Said she is getting a truck and will be right over. I text her after a few hours and she said, never mind. The next lady asked if I would hold item for 4 days. I said no, first one here gets it. She texts 4 days later saying she is on her way. I tell here it sold and she goes off....sigh. Should have taken the shit to the dump like the wife said.

  12. Playing NBA2K20 on XB1 last night with stepson (2 on 2 street mode), I was Boston Celtic Tacko Fall (7'6") and he was Kevin Durant. I grabbed 47 rebounds, blocked 8 shots, and had zero points.  He scored all 30 points for the win. I prefer playing defense and rebounding, and he likes to score.


  13. 20 year old stepson is playing Xbox One Madden and NBA 2K20 online with his little brother.  It's kinda fun to hear the game and them screaming to each other (over the Xbox network/sometimes over the phone) over plays.  The banter and such is fun to hear.  Vicarious gaming.  

  14. All this stayin' home bidness is getting to me -- cabin fever. Is there some solution I can pour into my ear to fix the problem?  Maybe it can go in one ear, cleanse my brain, and run out the other ear.

      Random Terrain

      I hardly ever leave the house, so I don't understand the concept of cabin fever. If I'm at home, I'm near my bathroom and my stuff. Why would I want to leave all of my stuff and my bathroom if I don't absolutely have to?

    2. BydoEmpire


      Get outside and go running... or walking or biking.  DO something ACTIVE.  Get some exercise.  Eat healthy food, not high-sugar, high-calorie processed crap.  Read a book.  A physical book.  Better yet, read a book out on the back porch, if you have one.  How about that TODO list you've had sitting around for years?  Take care of some of those things. Start with number 1 and work your way down.  Are you wanting to learn an instrument?  Start!  A new computer language? There are a billion tutorials, start on chapter one and get going.  Call your grandmother and talk to her on the phone.  Talk about positive things, things going well, good stuff in the future.

    3. GoldLeader


      Booze!...I'm recommending booze...I mean RT makes sense and Bydo's got some good stuff too...But have ya had any Beer lately?  And I'll just bet you've been neglecting your Bourbon.

  15. My friend's GF brought her car over here for me to replace one of the headlight bulbs.  I twice watched the YouTube video some nice guy made of the procedure so I wouldn't break any of the delicate clips, gathered my small prybar and flat tip screwdriver and put on gloves to keep oil off the bulb.  As I am on my aching knees on the cement removing the tiny access port and the delicate bulb (no space, tight quarters), she said "don't break anything."  I replied: "would you like to do this?"  :)  Gotta love the supervisory role people who can't change a light bulb like to take on with someone ELSE doing the work.  



    1. KaeruYojimbo


      Once I discovered the Wal-Mart auto center replaces headlight bulbs for 5 bucks I decided I would gladly pay that to never again deal with the fiddly pain in the ass of replacing the bulb in a modern car.

    2. jd_1138


      That's cool. I wouldn't take my cars there for servicing, but I will gladly recommend it to friends who can't change bulbs.  

    3. KaeruYojimbo


      I don't normally take my car there either, but I'll gladly let them change a bulb for me.
