I just randomize my favorite songs from my collection

Same here. I just dug into how to get the media buttons on my keyboard to skip tracks in VLC even when it's not in focus, so this works even better for me than before.

what restaurant was this? some deep woods waho? i've never been to a diner that sold any kind of organ meat. did you get a side of eyeball soup?

It was in a place named Emporia, and yeah, it's by no means a metropolis. It wasn't technically a diner, but I think that would be the equivalent yankee establishment.

Ah, the old "everyone does this" argument. Always so convincing. As an adult the only hotdogs I have eaten were all beef hotdogs. But you're right at some level, I've eaten stuff which if I had known what I was "really" eating I would have regretted it, or gotten sick, or both. This is not a valid argument to knowingly eat any other substance.

I'm guessing that might apply to some of the all beef in your hotdogs. It's not all steak in there.

Growing up my mom made "Pig brains and scrambled eggs" for breakfast, now she never served it with a pork chop or slice of ham but I'd still eat it.

On a business trip to Virginia, my wiseass boss saw brains & scrambled eggs on a diner menu and asked the waitress with a giggle how you could tell the brains from the eggs. She didn't bat an eye and deadpanned "the brains is gray."

Don't think it works the same in the forums.

I guess apathy is a form of "No." It looks like the crowdfunding success of Star Citizen forced EA to see enough value in the IP to eventually sell it to Piranha Games, who decided not to use it and instead went in another direction that bombed hard.

There's something wrong with all your links I can't put my finger on. Here, I fixed them:

Transvere Announced
Could have been Wing Commander Online
Funding reworked
Folds

How old is the monitor?

A little over 2.5 years. Enahs' task manager suggestion is a good one. My thought was to turn off power management and add a screen saver. Perhaps something with flying toasters.

I've almost been killed by 2 cars. 'Ban cars!'

Does that even remotely seem like an honest analogy?

You're like the guy who refuses to wear a seatbelt because he heard about someone who survived a crash after they were thrown free from their car.

I found RDR pretty much captivating. Marsden was a great character, and I even enjoyed that early-on wagon ride you take with your boss, talking to her about random gibberish, because it was well written and so well acted.

I think my only true complaint was how many times I had to see the cutscene for skinning an animal and/or looting.

There's a nice tip for this. You ride to the dead animal and dismount your horse and you will be able to skin it with no animation.

I didn't see the play, but I'm not sure how this could happen. I thought an illegal crackback block only happened within five yards of either side of the line of scrimmage?

They didn't do a background check on this guy? They didn't notice that he was charging these huge expenses to their business account until they ran out of money to cover the payments? That doesn't excuse what this guy did but if the Pitchfords had done a little more due diligence they could have saved themselves a huge headache. I guess it's unsurprising given Randy's record with Gearbox...

Well, the entire point of hiring someone like this is so you don't have to worry about those kinds of things and just focus on work, which in Randy's case is extremely time consuming. Still, I agree that a monthly check of a bank statement could have caught this earlier. Also, what does Kristy do? Does she work? Often in a situation where one spouse makes a ton of money, the other doesn't work. If so, she should have been on top of this.

According to the article she owns a restaurant.

Quote should be "The life of a repo man is always intense", although I'm not sure why I remember that when it's been around 30 years since I saw the film.

They are both in the movie.

"An ordinary person spends his life avoiding tense situations. A repo man spends his life getting into tense situations. A lot of people don't realize what's really going on. They view life as a bunch of unconnected incidents and things."

Yeah, I dunno. I always thought The Wild Bunch was wildly overrated. Gimme' Once Upon A Time in the West with Bronson and Fonda any day of the week.

It's not highlander. There doesn't have to be only one.

Will you share a link to the kit? I have the same chair and same arm problem.

This is the one I bought the second time. Instructions are crazy, and it has some extra stuff, but all I needed was the replacement nut and bolt.

Another recent example of a totally unnecessary and unneeded remake is "Papillon" -- I mean WTF?

I agree, that's crazy. I can't imagine any way to improve upon the original.

Only a little weird that he says in Europe and for one day in July...
Now here we are in the middle of September in America

Yeah, I didn't know that was coming, but it is from our ad provider, and is just another cookie consent. I've lost track of who requires these things, I feel like I get then on half the pages I visit these days.

Sorry for the inconvenience, but there should be no reason for alarm.
