Reminds me that I gotta put out more TomCat Rodenticide blocks in the shed, under the house, in the chase, storage, and barn.

Blue, does the dentist require a recent COVID-19 screen before digging around in your mouth?

No, but they have extensive precautions. I'm pretty sure they are at the extreme end of best practices for this.

Wow, are propane tank exchanges really $12 in your area? In my area it's nearly double that. Still much cheaper than charcoal, though.

That is the price at BJ's, so it includes a member's discount. It's not actually an exchange, it's a refill. They have a big tank at the side of the store where they fill them on the spot.

Reminds me of Bob...

My buddy in high school, his dad (Bob) made furniture. Bob used some machines, like a machine saw of sorts for cutting large pieces of wood down to usable sizes, but he also did a lot by hand. Bob liked to drink while making the furniture as well. Fun dude, but drank a bit more than he should while operating with sharp objects for 8-10 hours a day. Past away a couple years back from cancer. Anyway, point is he cut off all or part of 6 different fingers and never stopped drinking while doing his job.

That is dedication people.

edit: err..I didn't mean to imply you were drunk Blue. Just reminded me of him.

Nope I was stone cold sober, just careless. I actually have pretty strong knife skills, another reason I'm mad for messing up. I was using the mandoline to get paper-thin slices, which turned out to include a paper-thin hunk of myself.

El Presidente aka "Blue" has used the Astro A40.
Thanks for the suggestion, though they seem to be only stereo.

I do still recommend the the A40, but it is indeed just stereo.

Blue just reports the news. I detect no opinion on his views in reporting this story one way or the other. In fact, contrary to most of the stories he posts, this one lacks a "Blue blurb" that could reveal his feelings about it.

That is the whole idea behind the Op Ed section. These are posts that express the editorial opinions on other sites. Posting them here is to report what's being said about a topic, and is by no means meant to be an endorsement. I don't know how close it is to 50/50, but many of the entries here express opinions I don't personally agree with. I trust that this explanation is not actually required for most readers, as I've always felt it was obvious.

This *REMOVED* embrace of pure outright anarchy is a steaming pile. Who needs laws and courts and "innocent until proven guilty" in a court of law when you run with a lynch mob on the whim of a sock puppet.

The world is unfair, and bad things happen, laws and civilization are how to combat that, not devolving back to witch-hunts.

I realize that term appeared in a game title here yesterday. But for general use around here you are going to have to find a way to express yourself without using it.

Wow can't even quote a movie in context around here anymore. gg libtards.

However rare, I'm with Cutter on this. How did a quote from Idiocracy get removed and why?

It got removed because I removed it. The why should be pretty obvious... we have a simple rule here that states: "Ethnic slurs and homophobic language will not be tolerated." That's unambiguous. and doesn't offer exceptions for quotes. Do I really need to explain the slippery slope argument behind this?

Blue, so you already got the bone grafts and the base of the implants installed? (ie. the old fashioned type of implants where they pull out the bad teeth, drill it out, insert bone grafts, then wait a few months for the bone grafts to be filled with real bone, then implants with caps put in, then wait a few more months to set, then add the teeth?)

Or are you going to get the fancy pants immediate load implant where you just do the bone graft, wait a few months, and then plop in the implant with the (fake) teeth in one sitting?

Sounds like a mix of what you're describing. They put in the bone grafts and the base of the implants at the same time. Now that the grafts are set I got impressions and I go back in a couple of weeks for the permanent teeth.

Brave doesn't block it, either.

But my phone and the hosts file on my desktop do block it.

Any modern end-point protection blocks rogue redirects because of fingerprinting and phishing threats. I wasn't sure at first why that was the case for these links, but doing a simple scrape this redirects to some tracking/ad network known in the past to spread malicious ads and employ fingerprinting without GDPR compliance, again, not sure what exactly because it too is blocked. If GMG had hosted these on their domain or blues on his there would be no problem but the way it is set up here no protected system will let this through.

Well, and also it doesn't use HTTPS

Ah, sorry for the problems. If they work in the future I will post the destination links, which are clunkier, but I think will still work for the affiliate commissions. Here's an example. Does that work?

Those work fine

So the destination redirect links were being stripped by a cleanup script we run here. But I noticed they changed providers for them in the meantime, maybe because of problems like those reported here. If anyone is still following this, feel free to comment if this link gets gets blocked like the others did.

There were comments that the previous Green Man Gaming links were being blocked. They seem to be using a different redirect code now, so I've replaced it here. If these do or don't work for anyone I'd appreciate it if you post a comment to help me know how to proceed.

Blue,

I have Steam Gifts for Civ 5 and Offworld Trading Company I can throw on the pile if people would be interested in those.

That's very generous of you. I'd say it will be more orderly to complete the current giveaway and then we can do another one.

Yes, New York is the area where New Jersey drivers are a cliche for being menaces. But I've never met anyone from Jersey who actually denies it.

Hornet sightings trigger an immediate escalation to DEFCON 2 and deployment of chemical warfare, while the rest of the family cowers under a blanket at the other end of the house. There will be screaming.

EDIT: I've been stung roughly 20 times over the years, mostly when I was very young, so I have zero sympathy.

And I've never been stung by a hornet. Are you sure this post isn't an indictment of your approach to this, rather than mine?

My little tip for flying, stinging pests is a fly swatter. Fuck 'em.

I know that's a lot of people's approach to such things, but when possible I try and avoid killing, it makes me feel bad. And it's not like he was hurting anyone, while picking a fight with him had the potential of collecting a bunch of nasty stings. Besides, bald-faced hornets are actually predators of even less desirable pests, including flies. So yeah, he got the catch and release treatment. For me it was a no-brainer.
