Just got to Cyndi's. Getting the hang of it again. Having a blast. Some tricky stuff to figure out, I like that it doesn't hold your hand and tells you damn near nothing. Brings back great memories of the original and how much fun it was and now is with this new one.

Ill be playing this for a long time.

Made chili and lasagna today for family feast at work tonight. BOOM. Love it.

Really hoping the "BOOM" weren't certain types of body noises.

Just sampled some chili before I bring it to work - it might be. hehehehe

I think it depends upon where you find your zen, so to speak. I've lived an extremely urban lifestyle after living a very rural lifestyle and hated it. Living on-top of each other like rats, no personal green space, and constant noise made me ditch a well-paying job and a downtown Seattle apartment to go back to rural living.

Today, I hopped on my mower, mowed my acre and a half lawn, got all my vegetables planted as we have an early spring, played with my dog, and chatted with my neighbor as he had come down the road when I was out getting the mail. He lives just a hair over a mile down the road from me. Outside of him, I didn't see another living human being today. It was quiet outside of the normal noises of nature and the breeze.

That's living the dream as far as I'm concerned. I loved the city life as a young man. Good times were had. That's all over now, baby blue. I'm trying to get to exactly what you just mentioned, space, peace, quiet. I take a quiet country drive once a week and I find it's the only time now where it just really relaxes the hell out of me.


That is where we are at. I grew up in the burbs, went to college in the big city and have been there ever since. Wife has lived in Minneapolis her whole life and even she has grown tired of it. I have lost my ability to tolerate terrible city services, wasteful big city policies, living on top of eachother, traffic, noise, crime, and city smells (a few times a month if the wind blows just right the rail yard and recycle station is over powering)

We will be moving to an inner ring burb to take advantage of better community services and a higher quality of life in general. I miss the "community" feeling, it is lost on my neighborhood association where their agendas are pretty short sighted and council members have their own agendas for their own pockets of the city. Anywhere we will want to go is a $10-$15 cab ride if we dont want to drive.

We are looking forward to relaxing in our yard and enjoying being outdoors again. Enjoying nicer parks and cleaner areas. Things changed greatly when we had our son. Even being in one of the "quietest" NE Mpls hoods, and one of the safest, it is still the big city and not immune to a substantial amount of violent crime.

I am sure a trendy individual will enjoy our very nice residence neatled near many bars, distillerys, and tap houses, with close proximity to downtown. 11 years in a house is good enough for what I bought it for.

Wife wont go much further out, I would love to get a 3-5 acre reaidence, but I love the wife more than the idea of living further out. Hoping to have a big enough space for a nice size garden and possibly add a small greenhouse. Getting old......maybe I can finally have a lawn to yell at those whipersnappers!!!!

If you don't have Witcher 3 GoG has the everything version for $24.99. Worth 2x-4x that.

All set to rake in a possible $30 dollars, but the dvd settlement ain't available in Texas.

Lets not forget the disproportionate crack cocaine penalties.
While a person found with five grams of crack cocaine faced a five-year mandatory minimum prison sentence, a person holding powder cocaine could receive the same sentence only if he or she held five hundred grams. Similarly, those carrying ten grams of crack cocaine faced a ten-year mandatory sentence, while possession of one thousand grams of powder cocaine was required for the same sentence to be imposed.

Eh, Obama let all of those people out - hope someone keeps track, they have already found that a lot of them lied about their "story" as well as the O admin lied about what each of them had done. A lot of them had previous weapons charges and were running drugs with guns. Federal law states drugs+guns during an arrest is 20 years.....

Been listening to Alex Jones again? "Lied about what each of them had done." "A lot of them lied about their 'story.'"

You get that this reads like conspiracy theory, not fact, right? Also, your "federal law states drugs+guns during an arrest is 20 years" isn't even accurate. Look up 18 U.S. Code 924.

Sorry, Bats, lately you've been batting .000 when it comes to your legal arguments.

Oh no 10! gasp! So they get 2.

Actually it is anywhere from 3-99 years, gun with drugs. Depends on prior convictions and in some cases amount. Sorry beamer if I offended you that I didn't list out the whole chart and just stamped a 20 on it. Wow - obsess much?

Isn't hard to find lists of people let out and find their cases online.

It's official, the environment is screwed. This is only the beginning.
I thought you meant this.

Oh you mean when they were offered 10 Million and then asked for 20 Million, then were told no so they protested?

Which pipeline are they protesting?

So President Obama let all of "those people" out. Go ahead, say it. You meant African Americans. Notice the word American. Hard to believe huh. I bet you don't know what country imprisons more of its populace than any other, give up, it's America.
President Obama did not even make a drop in the bucket, but your obvious racism won't allow you to see anything good that came from the last 8 years. Instead of getting your news from 8 people sitting around a table screaming at each other, try doing some basic research. so sad

The only racist troll here is you. You have proven that time and time again. Feel free to continue to do what you do - inject your racist ideals into other people's posts.

"hey this is Bill from customer service... can you hear me?" So yeah, I hung up.

"No."

Reminds me of a freaky movie, or even more recent, Person of Interest. when John goes into GOD MODE. Or the many times Root did.

The thing is, they don't need YOUR voice for the "Yes", they just need A voice for the "Yes". Hoax.

Revenge-porn site operator Kevin Bollaert sentenced to 18 years.

Kill someone you get 3 years, get out kill another person get 3 more years. Rape someone you get less than 1. Kick a dog you get 20 years.

Something seems off....

In the news today here in the liberal state of MN where everyone deserves 20 chances, molest several children and as long as you plead guilty, all time is adjudicated, so feel free to continue!

NO TIME SERVED!

Aaaaaaaaaaaaaand now the Falcons Fans know how us Vikes fans feel! OMG what a game. One of the best competitive games for the SB in a long time. Say what you will, but Brady and company are the best of the best. Hands down, the greatest.

/got a little dusty in here after the game with that Hyundai commercial. wow.

(Glad the Pats won, the dirty birds are a cheap and dirty team and it bit them in the ass on those interference calls. They have taken a lot of teams out with their cheap ass antics, and I am glad to see them fall)
