    I have an '02 Kia Spectra. It's missing a hubcap after a night at the strip clubs where I let another guy DD, and there's a hole in the front passenger side door thanks to some courteous person in the wal-mart parking lot. It's green. The AC doesn't work. It's got about 130k miles on it. :)

    ‘Star Citizen’: What’s In Store With The New Stretch Goals?

    The items that are free to all backers, does that mean people who jump in on the NEWEST funding options? Or if I donated long ago will I still get them?

    PlayStation 4 and Xbox One Console Exclusives: How Do They Stack Up?

    I'm just about completely done with consoles. I'm so sick of the manufacturers' attitudes towards consumers. I'll give my money to the people who actually listen to what I want, even if it's just through kickstarters for indie game companies and such as that. Even if it's only once every couple of years, if I can get a Star Citizen quality game then it makes it worthwhile in my opinion. To illustrate the point, I'd much rather give $15 or $20 a month to a company who cares about making me happy for 3 years straight and play a game I actually enjoy than once or twice a year plus the cost of the console itself to a company that tells me to shut up and be happy with the bullshit they shovel onto my plate. This is an old comic but it very clearly illustrates where console manufacturers are at today. We saw this coming years ago. cad-comic.com/cad/20051104

    Chivalry/Natural Selection 2

    Hey I know a bunch of you guys are big into those two games, for those of you (like me) who haven't played them but enjoy getting into new games, those 2 are both on sale on Steam right now, through 10am on July 1. I picked up both for right at $20. Not a bad deal. For those of you guys who DO play, let me know who you are so I can start looking for you when you're playing and join in. Oh, and I'll probably be back on Planetside 2 in the next few days. :D

    Chivalry/Natural Selection 2

    I knew that you played, was figuring that you'd post in here. I'll see about getting with you on teamspeak and maybe get some games in with ya. You know who else out of ODIN plays either of those two?

    Omni 360-Degree Treadmill Is The Ultimate Oculus Rift Accessory

    Oh... My... God... that was TOTALLY WICKED!!! Having actually DONE that, running across rooftops and through qulat wall alleys, bringing the physical aspect, the running and jumping, having to raise a rifle to your shoulder to fire... that is something that I would LOVE to have... once I get my back surgery and I can actually walk normally and maybe even run, at least. :(

    Viking: Battle for Asgard

    I'm disappointed... not in the game at all, I haven't even had the chance to play it yet. I logged in to Steam a little bit ago and the deal of the day was for Viking: Battle for Asgard, 75% off bringing it down to a paltry $3.74 from its normal price of $14.99. I didn't want to buy it right away without knowing anything about it so I did some simple google searching and read a few reviews. It's a hack n slash that looks pretty cool and sounds pretty cool, I've enjoyed some hack n' slash games before but never really got into most of them. This one being based on Norse mythology (for which I have an affinity) differentiates it from most of the others out there that I never really cared about because in Greek and Roman mythology there's just too many damn gods for me to keep up with. I just couldn't immerse myself in them. Anyways, so I read a few reviews and it looks cool, it sounds cool, and the warning for graphic violence that includes full dismemberment made me kind of giggle a bit and I flipped back over to my Steam page to purchase it... and promptly found out that the timer had expired by minutes while I was looking the game up on google. I was perturbed. Yeah, I could pay a measly $15 for the game because it does look very cool... but I just have a thing about paying full price for games. I could have snatched it for $4 but thanks to Steam's stupid little timer thing I didn't get it. Oh well. So does anyone know anything about this game, is it any fun to play, is it worth a full $15? Lemme know what you guys think of it, if it's that good I might go ahead and pick it up anyways.

    Pool Maintenance?

    Okay, so some of you are aware that I have a pool. Some of you are aware that I haven't seen the bottom of my pool... in months. After 2 very heavy shock treatments and 2 sessions of algae kill treatment the water is finally clear, the dead funk has settled to the bottom, I've vacuumed it all out to waste and I'm filling it back. I realize there are many, many, many pool maintenance forums out there but almost invariably they are headed by some company that wants to sell you all their crap. I'm bringing this here to you guys in the hope that some of you might be knowledgeable in this area and might be able to help out. I have a 25,000 gallon inground pool. It has one spot where it pulls in water to the filter and it has one spot where it jets the filtered water back in... right next to the intake. So I have some circulation issues. I've noticed that in some areas of the pool it starts to develop algea far faster than other areas. The dead stuff tends to settle in those spots heavier and it builds until stuff starts to grow. Other than algaecide treatments once a week to the tune of over $100/month, what can be done to limit that? I know I'm supposed to vacuum when I see those spots developing but our water bill is bad enough as is and I don't want to spike it out by having to fill the pool every week. I've also figured out that the in-line chlorine dispenser sucks nuts. It just doesn't circulate enough water through it to dissolve and distribute the chlorine. I have a floater that I add chlorine tabs to. I put several chlorine tabs in the filter intake basket to increase the water flow to get them dissolved and distributed. I still can't keep my chlorine levels high enough to stop algae growth for some reason. I've had to take to adding liquid chlorine bleach every so often to keep chlorine levels up but it doesn't seem to be enough even doing it that way. The guy at the pool store down the street is full of helpful tips, all of which involve buying lots of his expensive stuff. So what do you guys have to add here? What can I do to keep my chlorine levels up? How can I keep the algae off for the duration of the summer so my kids can actually SEE the stuff they drop in the bottom of the pool instead of having to dive down and feel around until they happen to touch it? I'm a smart dude but this pool is kicking my ass.

    Man Gives Away Abercrombie & Fitch Clothing To Homeless People

    I couldn't imagine someone going broke from buying abercrap and fitch clothing... as retarded expensive as they are. They might get jumped by other bums for their fancy new threads, though. I'd think it might be more of a danger to that guy than a help depending on the physical predisposition of the other bums in the area.

    Electronic Arts Kills Project Ten Dollar, A Sign Of Better Times

    I guess I wouldn't be so vehemently opposed to the 'diskless' next gen consoles if they didn't charge so goddamned much for the games. Steam has sales every day where you can grab really great games for a lot less than they go for normally, and I have problems paying $60 for a game I'm going to play for a couple weeks then move on. If you wait long enough for the game to come down to a reasonable price ($20, which STILL nets the company a profit though not a 500% profit) then chances are there is still some hardcore multi player fanbase that's still there, still active, and you can get in some good games of multiplayer. Example: I fucking LOVED Space Marine. I loved it even before it came out. HUGE fan of the tabletop gaming that was its precursor for over a decade. I bought it opening day. I paid $60 for that game. Played it for 4 weeks and it went dead. I had played through the single player many times, and the multiplayer went from hundreds of matches available to maybe 2 or 3 matches with the same dudes. Some were alright, some of those dudes were dickbags. My being a fan of the games from years before aside, had I waited a couple of months and bought it for $20 at a used shop I could have enjoyed the single player campaign just as much and would have gotten the same amount of playtime of multi player without the disappointment when people left by the boatload to move on to the next game. Let's be honest here. A company doesn't HAVE to sell a game at $60 to make a profit. They sell games at $60 because some people are willing to pay that price, and once one person pays a higher price for something then everyone pays a higher price, that's the way a market like this works. Once they can sell it to one guy for a few dollars more than the last guy, then EVERYONE pays a few dollars more like it or not. These companies are in business to make money, which makes sense to me, but they won't be going out of business selling games on sales from time to time, or enduring used game sales. As long as they're not shovelling a game full of bullshit and trying to sell it, they're still going to move units and make money. Going to a diskless format and destroying a used game market is pure greed. They want to make sure only ONE person uses a copy of a game and that EVERYONE who comes along has to pay THEIR FULL PRICE, regardless of the fact that they're selling it to us at a 72,000% markup or whatever.

    Man Gives Away Abercrombie & Fitch Clothing To Homeless People

    Nobody here thinks homeless people are somehow 'lesser human beings' and your statement is mildly offensive. I do alright for myself however my youngest brother and his girlfriend are currently homeless. I don't think they, or any other homeless person who finds themselves in that situation whether by accident or design, are in any way less human than I or any other person. Some people simply have bad luck and they find themselves in a rut they can't recover from. Some are homeless by choice. Either way your statement seems more like you're just trolling to get hits for your company's fundraising effort, and while that is a noble goal, to assist homeless people in getting clothing that will allow them to stave off the elements that they find themselves enduring, why don't you just come out and say "MY company P1124 is yada yada yada..." It's less offensive. Trying to hide it like you did there is kind of shady and lends the whole thing a 'backroom deal' kind of feel.

    I work for the US army. Yes, they block porn. So no porn vids for you. Do we have anyone from Germany or Czech Republic, or anything like that? There's serious amounts of porn coming out of there these days.

    She was 13, at least thats what everyone said.

    Mine are 13, 12, and 10. So far my 10 year old is the only one that actually likes shooting. The older two don't like it so much. They're a lot more 'girly' than the youngest one. She's a total tomboy. She's into skating and is just 'one of the guys'. I'm going to have problems with her boyfriends, I just know it. That's why I'm teaching her to shoot. I want them to be SCARED of her!

    I've seen her shoot before. She's fucking amazing. Her three gun stuff is really incredible. I kind of hope my daughters take an interest in firearms like that!

    Pool Maintenance?

    The wrinkled liner complicates things, too. The algae loves to grow down in those little wrinkles, and it's a bitch to vacuum out. The auto-vacuum thing that we have doesn't work because it's always getting stuck on the wrinkles.

    Pool Maintenance?

    Wrinkled liner. Wish we had seen it before we bought, I'd have made them replace it. When we looked at the house the pool was filthy, it had been left to sit for 2 months in the summer. The home warranty company won't replace it unless we buy a really expensive warranty package from them that would pretty much be the same as replacing the liner out of pocket.
