Out of the Blue

Happy Valentine's Day to all of you interested in such things, and for equal time, for everyone else, happy ignoring that commercial holiday probably invented by the flower and candy sellers to exploit our emotions while trampling on the sensitivities of those not currently involved in romantic relationships. MrsBlue and I have gone back-and-forth over whether we want to go out this evening to commemorate the occasion, or take the more practical approach of going out over the weekend to celebrate. Obviously with the reservation situation, the longer we wait to decide on this, the more likely the decision will be made for us.

Sweet Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Band of Heroes.
Stories: Frederick Douglass didn't know his birthday, but it's celebrated today.
Media: Holy Crap, Check Out This Awesome F-18 Cockpit Video. Thanks nin.

Looking at my FB feed, people try way too hard to impress someone for one day like it's somehow more important than every other day.

Then again, I've never had someone to spend Valentine's Day with so maybe I'm simply more bitter and can't appreciate it properly.

But hey, PornHub is offering free premium subscription for the day for us fellas!

Is there any doubt being a jet fighter pilot is one of the best jobs in the world? Sucks I started wearing glasses in the 4th grade...

Yuck. Movie matinees are up to $7 here. Guess it's even fewer movies at the theater for me from here on out...

That F-18 video is an impressive flight sim. I really like the volumetric clouds and how the lighting played on them. Fairly poor view distance but I guess some trade-offs are inevitable.

Yeah, and that "camera shake"? So fake. I will commend them on their mo-cap: the guys walking on the deck moved pretty realistically.

My wallet could use a break, this month is my brothers birthday, anniversary with GF, Valentines Day and my mothers birthday is the first week of March. I need to start taking my vacations in February so I can conveniently miss some of these

I hear you - my wife's birthday, christmas, and anniversary are all in the same week.

Wow, really poor planning on her part. What was she thinking, being born on Christmas???

we normally get the folks to look after the kids and I get the other half to cook a nice meal for a change. Sometimes a nice night in is good for a change (the router gets switched off too, thats the only way to be sure no sneaky gaming going on....)  
Its not the cough that carries you off but the coffin they carry you off in.

The idea is to break up with her on the 13th, save your money, get back together on the 15th and have makeup sex.

And wtf was that F-18 video about? No Danger Zone? No good!
