      I think putting on both Crush games would have been pretty cool...Hmmm...I've never even played Time  Cruise!  I'll have to check it out!

      Mine should be here Sunday if all goes well.  Although an early delivery would be nice.

      GoldLeader - Time Cruise was a different developer IIRC, and it definitely didn't feel like the Crush games. Naxat Pinball was is so good!

      I was going through my PC Engine/TG-16 games today and I really wish they would have swapped Daimakaimura (Ghouls n Ghosts) for 1941 Counter Attack and added Silent Debuggers. The latter used sound so well to let you know where enemies were!

  2. Likes.  I don't have enough of them.  Like this status update or I will stalk you and make you like it!

      ^ @digdugnate  Caddyshack or Family Guy?  I found the Family Guy clip hilarious once I realized it was the Caddyshack bit ;)

      @GoldLeader either!  That is one of the funniest Family Guy bits- my wife and I quote it ALLL the time.  It's much better than the 'Meg' story in that episode. ;)

  4. Just re strung my electric guitar and tuned it.  Took me about an hour because I haven't played it in over 15 years.  Getting a new amp next week so I can be cool again.😎

      While we're all comparing guitar notes, my first electric was a solid body Univox combo with Fender musicmaster bass amp (15w).

      Man, pulling that g-string if I did not sound like Hendrix I must have been delusional!  More proof, years later I taught myself

      the Star-Spangled Banner, complete with distortion and feedback enough to rock a stadium!  These days however I prefer

      to play drums, call me crazy...

  5. Why is there no barking in Ozzy Osbournes' "Bark at the Moon"?  There is only some howling at the end of the song.😖  When there is a song about barking, I want barking damn it!

      I met the vocalist at NordicFest in Oslo in 2005 or 2007.

       

      He drank a non-alcoholic beer and mentiond responsible drinking.

       

      I mentioned I thought ‘Nocturnal’ was a really cool track.

      @x=usr(1536) Only once and it's to to a girl I started dating when I was 16. We are still married to this day.  Here's my guess, you don't know me, and you don't realize my advice is always 100% solid and 100% correct. Follow it, and you'll be golden.

    3. x=usr(1536)

      @moycon: actually, I'm happy that it worked out for you to that extent.  Very few people can manage that.

      @x=usr(1536) I'll also mention I retired at age 48, but since you already know I can do things few people can manage, now I feel like you know me.  😉

  7. Arby's has a new Diablo chicken or brisket sandwich out.  I had the chicken for lunch.  I like some spicy stuff but HOLY HELL!  It didn't kick in until I was about 1/3 through the sandwich, then it got really spicy.  By the time I was 2/3 through I felt like I was eating the Devil's A$$hole!  They give you a small milkshake with it and trust me, you'll need it.  I couldn't finish the last two bites and anyone who knows me knows that I don't waste food!

      I made a Spicy Veggie Chikkin' sandwich in tribute!  Haha...Sometimes ya get a wild one too.  If you ask me,  certain peppers vary in their hotness...Jalapenos can be very mild or very hot IMO,  Ghost Peppers are pretty constant,...I bought some peppers a while back (Can't remember the name though...Kind of like Serrano peppers) But these (whatever they were) said on the label,  "Usually Mild but 1 in 10 are Hot!" ...Found that interesting...

    4. GoldLeader

      Figured it out! ...Shishito peppers!...OK, Then...They're mild....Just... had to find that memory...Cheers joeatari1!

      Also, any day now the self driving cars will be so good and safe to use that even blind people can ride in them unassisted. Once it happens, they'll be able to enjoy drive through fast food, ATMs and all other services associated with arriving by car.

      ^Funny carlsson,  Earlier I felt like writing about the self driving car angle myself...But even though the responses are fun,...I'm pretty sure this was one of those times where it was a joke...Not necessarily meant to be taken at face value. ;)

      Fun reflection: The "Swedish fish" are virtually unknown as a candy in Sweden. You might find it if you look far into every place that sells sweets, but are as typically Swedish as yogurt with caramelized popcorn are a typical US snack.

  15. Well, I'm back from four days in the hospital.  I had a heart attack on Sunday morning and will need to make a few changes in my life.  Luckily the surgeon was able to open up my arteries through my wrist without cracking my chest.  So glad to be home though.

      When BK first launched in my (Canadian) city in the late-1970s, the fish sandwich was called the "Whaler". A friend of the family utterly loved them; me, not so much. Personally, I miss the Big King.

      @Rogerpoco it's not a bad sandwich.  It has a couple pickle slices, some lettuce and sauce.  I put cheese on mine and it was good.  I would rather have fish from Bonefish Grille, but then again who wouldn't.
