Ever ask yourself, "Why is there an extra charge, fee, or tax for a product or service?"

Well, here's the definitive answer: because they can

It's almost always that simple.

I've always been of two minds about renos before selling a home. Seeing as I have the skills to reno most everything myself I've always preferred something cheaper and dumpier that I just gut and rebuild myself - for the most part. The major problem with renos and flipped homes - beyond shoddy workmanship - is personal taste. So you may end up spending a lot of money on cosmetics that you like but others don't. Better off to just clean things up, a bit of patching and paint here and there and let the new owners reno it to suit their tastes.



Homes around here seem to be going up in price around $100k every 1-1.5 years, which is including the fixer uppers. Don't ask me why. I'm baffled.

When I was a kid I had a surgery called "naso-antral windows". Kept me out school for months. It was a painful recovery process.
Todays ENT specialists look at that procedure and shudder at the butchery of it, much like tomorrow's doctors will look at todays medicine and shake their heads.

Like this?

What games are you guys playing these days? i'm starting to get bored of Rimworld after 200+ hours. Looking for something new.

Going through my steam list of 190 games and I still have 90 or so unplayed. Debating doing Bulletstorm/The two newer wolfensteins.

I like this one a lot. Thumbsup

Ahhh finally got my nose stents out today!

What kind of surgery did you have?

Septoplasty/Inferior Turbinate Reduction for a deviated nasal septum. They're actually really common in people, just to varying degrees. Mine was bad enough that I was generally always congested - chronic sinusitis - on one side or the other on a regular basis. It wasn't crippling or dangerous but it was irritating. It deffo interferes with your sleep causing snoring and mild sleep apnea because you're mouth breathing with it. Plus you're dehydrating so you're constantly waking up and drinking water, than waking up to piss out that water. Not really a problem as a young man but post 45 it starts to take its toll. Still surgery is always better when done young, I really should have done this 20 or 30 years ago. I just hope it was worth it.

Well it's "Family Day" in Canada. How arbitrary is that? Whatever works. Everyone just wants a day off in Feb.

Election day in the USA needs to be a holiday.

Or buy a stamp and mail it in.

If I have to drive my car, normally I take the scenic / beach routes, but if I have get somewhere fast, or drive up and down California, I try to stay on PCH. I hate the freeways with a passion.

Aww Bob, I am disappoint. If you live in California you should always be driving the Ventura Highway.

I always take the scenic route whenever possible too. I find it mostly gets me to my destination not much longer than it takes the regular way and without the stress of the traffic, gridlock, etc.

I mainly stick around the South Bay for shopping or errands, here you can see why. Thumbsup Though, it's interesting that the person chose some cloudy days to record. This video has sunshine, but it's clearly an advertisement.

Anyhow, as much as LA county is justifiably criticized for its horrible traffic, we have our nice areas too.

The problem with ignoring, vs banning, is that you can still pop into a 100 post thread, expecting it to be good discussion, and instead it's just good posters arguing with a troll.

Kind of like watching the news lately.

Just saw the movie Arrival.

Spoiler questions / comments:

If she is living non-linear how did she not know about the phone call? She acted surprised. And how did she save mankind the first round if she didn't know the number? Why would she ever need it?

Lastly, lack of knowledge (phone number) would indicate linear thinking, but in the future she is non-linear. So which is it?

Are these a major plot holes?

On the other hand maybe she doesn't realize she's existing in subtle but alternate-divergent timelines or universes. She might simply be delusional.

Super secret
Why doesn't she know about the phone call?

Well -- talking about non-linear events almost always makes for confusing verbiage. My personal spin: She is surprised because she is only just figuring out what's going on. That the visions of a child, her child, are not some fantasy but that she is seeing her future. And realizing she can manipulate her action in that future which enables her to change the present. She isn't "living non-linear", ie... she isn't moving forward and backward in time, she is simply seeing and interacting with her future. Unless I'm misremembering you aren't shown her changing the past.

Now your next question is a standard time travel plot problem. Terminator.. how was John Conner ever born the first time, without Kyle having gone back in time to father him. How can the general be at the party for her to get the phone number, unless she already called him. It is pretty much unavoidable to have a problem like this when you are dealing with time altering events. I don't really understand your "Why would she ever need it?" question.

If you consider this a major plot hole, no film containing any form of time manipulation isn't guilty of it.

Response:

I get the whole loop thing. But the moment he gave her the phone # means that she didn't have it, meaning at some point she saved the world without the phone #. There must of been a 'primary timeline' before the causal loop was created, otherwise it would cause a paradox (meaning, it couldn't happen .. as paradoxes prevent things from happening, they aren't just a matter of fact issue). Also, the fact she didn't know the phone # meant she existed in a linear timeline (at that scene) up until the point of knowing it, for her past self can know it. Spin... I'm sure I'm overthinking this. When I write a story involving time travel, my main character is always aware of paradoxes and creating divergent timelines, going through great trouble to not disturb an existing timeline, create paradoxes, spawning divergent timelines, or causing total annihilation.

Can we also get a law that it's legal to hunt people who hunt bears?

Especially baby bears...
Tender, delicious baby bear meat burgers. Sign me up!

Ha. I hope you aren't serious.

I encountered a black bear in Alaska. I had to backtrack and I was lucky enough to meet some fellow hikers. We all talked loudly and made a lot of noise to keep the bear away. Definitely, an unforgettable experience.
