  1. Unfortunately it looks like TP shortages won’t be getting better for a bit 😞 paper mill in Jay Maine where my brother works just exploded. Among the items they produce is TP 😞

    Luckily everyone made it out safely ❤️

      Hm, so one sensational news source first tweeted about several injuries, then a slightly more reputable source tweeted about no injuries. #fakenews much?

    4. Iwantgames:)


      No one was injured. It’s a part of the mill that’s not normally occupied. Still no word on what caused it yet. 

  2. Went to pay off the last $600 on my Xmas layaway today but it someone paid it for me already :-o didnt believe it till the cashier showed me the computer screen. There are still good people out there! Thank you whoever you are and bless you!

      We do have people come in the store and donate money to random layaway accounts. One year someone came in and paid off ALL the layaways in a store in Connecticut. Rich people like to help during the holidays. Here's a story from last year:

    4. GoldLeader


      That's pretty Damn Incredible!!  Very cool that you paid it forward and paid off someone else's too!

  3. Had fun at 13th floor haunted houses Zombie Apocalypse Live event! Blasted some zombies and survived both escape rooms! :D

  4. Finally played through Warcraft Adventures. For a unreleased game it's actually quite polished and I actually enjoyed it :)

      Well, I live in Ohio, so.. Someone sees on unit asking $1000 on eBay and suddenly they are all supposedly worth that.

  8. Just voted in the Atari Awards. Good luck to all entrants, all are excellent, I hated only voting for one lol

  9. It's been awhile, I hooked up the OUYA this morning and you can still access the store! Wow

      Razer bought them out. I'm glad they're keeping it alive.


      I don't think the Razer Forge (followup with Google Play) ever got external storage support, which kills the fun as an emulation box.

  12. It’s April Fools so the greatest fool of all time (Coleco Chameleon) should be released today right?

      You are more likely to get polymega on your feet. Enjoy some wood grain tacos.

  13. Why do people think they need my money more than I do? Now I gotta wait for the fraud claim to process before I can have my moneys back :’(

      Maybe you bumped into someone who had one of those credit card skimming devices? According to some news reports, these scammers can ‘skim’ credit card data while the card is still in your pocket. There are wallets you can buy to protect your cards from theft; they contain a special metal that blocks the signal sent by skimming devices.

    3. Iwantgames:)


      Yea I’m guessing that or one of these https://www.creditcards.com/credit-card-news/gas-pump-atm-skimmers.php as it happened right after I was in a hurry and used pay at pump instead of going inside like I normally do :/

    4. NE146


      Probably should switch to using credit cards instead of debit.. then just treat it like a debit by paying it off at least weekly, if not sooner.

  14. Baby Timothy came at 11:30 today. He’s a beautiful 9lb little guy. Unfortunately he will need surgeries to correct his cleft palate but god willing he will be ok!

      My record albums cover art lied. The eclipse needed more fire falling from the sky and rivers running red with blood.
