Its called a hotel.

That may be how this has to work. And of course Manhattan hotel prices are quite reasonable.

Crash on someone's sofa?

One of the buddies out of this group of five (counting me) remains single at our advancing age (and is our hero by remaining amazingly studly), and he's offered to let me crash at his place. But I'm far closer to the other three friends, and I'm not sure I'd be comfortable imposing like that on them, much less him.

That's not to say I'm ruling it out, but it does make me feel awkward just thinking about it.

Wait, do you mean to say it is free of Larry Niven, or free to play?

Free of Larry Niven... hence the hyphen. Don't know about the business model yet.

It's more like you buy a Jeep, and a year later they give you a box with new rims in it, which is yours to keep, but tell you that, in order to open the box, you need to buy a key from them.

You forgot the part where after you buy the Jeep, every 100 miles you drive they give you a free box that may have new rims in it.

Right. It could be new rims, or it could be an air freshener. Only $500 to buy the key to find out.

You seem to be missing (ignoring?) my point that they give you loot boxes for free. Not to mention they do not make you buy them, and they provide no in-game advantages. But I'm not here to tell you not to be mad if that makes you happy.

It's not really free, though, right? It's a free opportunity to spend $3. That's what gets me. The whole thing is designed to give someone who may not spend $3 a big reason to. It's stingy.

I have to apologize... I conflated your post with some complaints from another one, and made the assumption we were discussing Overwatch here, not CS:GO. Sorry about that.

Blue, doesn't one of your relatives work for the NIST?

edit: or maybe some bn forum member mentioned a relative of theirs was, anyway it's all relative.

It's my uncle, who works directly on that measurements and standards stuff, specifically finding a more precise way to define a kilogram. He probably works with the guy in that video.

He's a pretty accomplished physicist.

However be warmed, owning these dogs are like joining a cult. They are not typical dogs, they think they are gods and expect to be treated like them LOL.

Haha, I got a little sense of that from the pair I met. One of them was telling his owner he needed food by shooting him this royal "you are not doing your job satisfactorily" look.

Love the picture of your dog, sorry for your loss.

I'd talk to a real estate person or contractor that's had experience flipping houses and get his/her opinion on what is and isn't worth fixing up before you sell.

That's what got us into this mess to start with.

And thanks Tom, I think at this point we are going to leave our six-foot tub (along a six-foot wall) in place and not re-glaze it. As for the tiles, they are beyond help, they are a mix of original subway tiles from 1929 and more recent replacements, so they don't all match, and tons of them are cracked, displaced, or broken. And we still require a wall demolition to fix the pipes, so we just have boxes of replacement tiles ready to go.

And I caused some confusion with my sloppy terminology here. What I refer to as a "leak" is actually a heavy "drip" from the tub faucet. It still requires the wall be torn open to fix, but calling it a leak implies there might be other water damage to walls or floors, which is not the case.

Sorry, I haven't had enough coffee yet - you fired the new contractor, too?

No, we had a promising line on one, but he turned out to be too busy. As they all are.

Also, how the hell long are we supposed to be believe Star Lord's cassette tapes have lasted, 35+ years of constant playing(probably) while being carried around in various combat situations? Least believable part of the movie!

You saw the scene of Rocket restoring the ship with some sort of repair ray? That thing can probably refresh a cassette tape in low-power mode.

25 times, Blue? This is like you are actually trying to call Cthulhu.

C'mon, it's barely more than once per year.

how is that even remotely "not allowed"? id love an explanation for that, if you actually think you are justified in any way simply beyond "i wanted to censor that so i did".. which of course is your prerogative, since you own the site - but i am wondering if there is some sort of "principal" you believe is being upheld by silencing any question against the authority of religion.. yes id love to hear about it

You are making off-topic posts directed at a single-user in an attempt to instigate shit and hijack threads. And now you want to pretend you don't know why? Any more and you'll have to register another new account.

Street Fighter II won out over The Oregon Trail? What a load of crap! I hope their wagon wheels break and they die of dysentery.

No it didn't, Oregon Trail is in the list of previous winners.

Only to watch him killed by a witch with butterfly magic.

Yep with an in-game cutscene too. Such a shame. Should of at least had a CGI death.

Isn't the Necromancer the perfect chance to fix this? I vote for a resurrection.
