Lauren Boebert clocked at 19 mph over speed limit and now faces court date: report
  • Should have gone 90 over and driven right into a fucking wall.

  • Yup.
  • My wife called me two days ago saying "GUESS WHAT'S FUCKING BEHIND ME!". She was nearly home, and told me to run to the front window and look down the street toward the intersecting road. She turned onto our street, and moments later that stupid piece of shit went zooming by on the main road. I couldn't believe it. It was even dumber in person. I was so delighted she helped make that sighting happen, though.

  • Loyalty to the flag
  • I grew up in America and have lived in Canada for seven years now. I've come to recognize that Canadians (except for the staunch conservatives who aren't pleased with anything) are proud and loyal to Canada because it's a beautiful country that has (for the most part) taken pretty good care of its people. Americans are proud and loyal mostly because they were brainwashed throughout their lives by pledges, patriotic songs, and tall tales about the founding fathers. I personally found little to be proud of in my thirty years as an American.

    Also, one time a pair of planes took down some skyscrapers. Alan Jackson wrote a song about it, and America invaded an unrelated country. That made people really proud too.

  • I'm sure there's some internal logic going on
  • It's definitely beneficial to interact with and include your toddlers as much as you possibly can, even if they aren't contributing much. It will accelerate their motor skills and help their speech to explode before many of their peers. My wife and I can often tell when children aren't interacted with by their parents, either through lack of communication or by being raised by a fucking tablet instead. There are exceptions to this of course (like autism), but it's very sad to see how many children between the ages of 2 and 5 are trailing so far behind the others due to uninvolved and disengaged parents.

    My daughter has a lot of kids in her pre-school that are the same age as her, and they have an extemely simple and broken vocabulary. Their parents come to pick them up and don't engage with them whatsoever. Just quietly stick them in a car and usually hand them a device.

    I suppose that's the unfortunate different between people who wanted kid and people who simply had kids.

  • A lesbian couple was brutally beaten by group of men in Halifax. Police still haven't filed charges
  • Ah, I saw this posted in two seperate places, and the first instance stated they were from Syria. I thought this was the same article.

  • A lesbian couple was brutally beaten by group of men in Halifax. Police still haven't filed charges
  • Should be a one-way ticket back to Syria. I immigrated here from America seven years ago, blend in seamlessly with the populace, and I still wouldn't fuck with a Canadian in fear of being deported (I'm also not an asshole). It's an absolute privilege to be here and I love this country. It's crazy to me that anyone else would have the opportunity to come here and then squander it by beating the shit out of a peaceful lesbian couple who are trying to enjoy their night. How incredibly brazen.

  • Fr fr
  • "Looks like it stinks."

  • Hockey
  • As an added bonus, I can also use my wife's lower back to rest my poutine. She says it provides a nice warming sensation.

  • McDonald’s Exec Says McPlant Was β€˜Not Successful’ In The US
  • The biggest issue I've seen with plant-based burgers is that these moronic restaurants cook them on the same grill/part of the grill as their beef. My wife loves Beyond Meat, but every time she's ever asked, they cook that shit right where the greasy beef was cooked moments before. Of course the vegetarians don't fucking want it.

  • Check this shit out
  • This was always the silenced PP7 for me.

  • Trump: "Immigrants are taking Black jobs"
  • Hugh Mungous wot?!?!

  • What goes up must… stay there?
  • I love to see the dumb villager archetype alive and well.

    "Me fink I knows wot it was, m'lord, and me likes to 'ave a go at it.. Roight.. So at first me fought it the chickens got their feathers in the sky, like... Too many chickens peckin' about and insultatin' the air like as makes me pillow warm, see.. But den we gets to to really finkin', and I looks to me mate, see.. And I says to me mate.. It it's not the chickens up flyin' about, and it's not the work a wizards, like.. Wot if it's all the junk like wot they've been puttin' up in the sky, like? Dat's wot it is, m'lord.. The sky treasures."

  • what is the worst case scenario that can happen at the presidential debate?
  • Wow. I've never seen this before and I really liked it.

  • What did you routinely fall asleep listening to as a kid and what does it for you now?
  • I don't fall asleep listening to anything but my fan, but reading knocks me the fuck out most nights. Sometimes I can't make it through a paragraph before catching myself with my eyes completely closed.

  • When did you completely fuck up your chance with someone?
  • Honestly, that's on her for not liking the smell of cumin.

  • Hiiiiiii!
  • Yeah, you're gonna wanna eat some catfood, chug a beer and huff some glue. It'll make you feel really sick and then put you right out.

  • Misplaced Faith in Racist Ignorance
  • Why is that Mexican eating chicken and pasgetti?!

  • "Soundblaster" was such an 80s/90s name for a computer part.
  • I still like Xonar cards, like the Xonar DG (though it isn't compatible with my new PC). I always liked their interface more than the competitors, and it puts out excellent volume on my Logitech headset that is otherwise way too quiet for me. Never been a big fan of the simulated 3D environments on any of these cards, though. The only game it ever sounded decent in was No Man's Sky, but even that still had a distant tinny sound to it.

    I think most people just use external amplifiers these days, but I'm still using a third-party sound card.

  • Seeking: Kid-friendly Adventure/Exploration Games (PC)

    My daughter (4) is very into exploring cities, homes and villages in Skyrim, feeding aliens in No Man's Sky, and cleaning houses in House Flipper. She gets annoyed in games like House Flipper because she can't leave the property to explore all of the visible houses on the block. I'd like to find other PC games that are relatively kid-friendly (or at least with my guidance and supervision) and easy for her to just wander about and be nosy.

    Any suggestions? Simple adventure/fantasy would be great and provide us with something to progress through together, but anything that lets you explore a neighborhood and/or poke around in buildings and such would be perfect. I'm picking up Goat Simulator today for that exact purpose.

    I appreciate it in advance.

    xEdit Merged Patch, Bashed Patch, and Smashed Patch. Took a year off of modding and have forgotten the order of operation here.

    Hey, guys. I was on medical leave for three months last year and spent a good portion of that time modding the absolute hell out of my game. I made several merged mods via zMerge, have a plug-in called zPatch.esp which I can't recall the purpose of, an inactive (unchecked) Bashed Patch, and an active Smashed Patch.

    The game would have been good to launch and go as it was, but I have better hardware now and installed Nature of the Wild Lands, subsequently deleting Happy Trees, Aspens Ablaze and Enhanced Vanilla Trees from my former mod list. In addition, I installed four of JK's Outskirts mods (Markarth, Riften, Solitude, Windhelm) that had released since I last played.

    To keep my plug-ins under 250, I trimmed the fat by removing KS Dragon Overhaul, as well as Civil War Refugees Redux due to clipping incompatibilities with the JK's Outskirts mods.

    So to make certain everything still plays together nicely, I believe I need to remake the Bashed Patch (leveled lists only), then include it in a Smashed Patch, and leave only that Smashed Patch active near the bottom of my load order? Is this the correct order?

    And if so, any idea what I may have made that zPatch.esl for? I had following Sinitar's guide for a good portion of the mods before moving on to the endless acquisition of others, but primarily referred to GamerPoets videos for the more complicated things like merging, bashing, smashing and DynDOLOD.

    Any help sparking my memory here would be greatly appreciated. I've already properly ran TexGen and DynDOLOD, and checked my merged mods to rebuild and relink scripts, so that much is sorted out.

    Thanks!

    What are some small or mundane things that illicit strong feelings of nostalgia within you?

    • Elicit

    I seem to experience intense feelings of nostalgia rather frequently in my everyday life. It's brought on by the simplest or mundane of things, like the way the sun hits the top of conifers in the morning or evening, the trilling of a bird in the distance during certain seasons or weather conditions, the way a wall clock ticks away steadily in the stillness of my home (especially when accompanied by motes of dust in the sunlight), or the smell of a running air conditioner.

    These moments illicit elicit both mysterious and beautiful emotions, but are hurled at me constantly. While I enjoy the feelings they give me, I seem to experience them far more often than I think most would consider normal. I don't know if there is a term for this sense of hyper-nostalgia, or what (if anything) it's indicative of. Most of it is tied to insignificant moments from my childhood, like lying in the melting snow on a Spring day (the trilling bird), or sitting bored in the car waiting on my mother (the sun on conifers), but a lot of it is more ambiguous.

    So I thought it would be fun to ask other people what their strongest (and perhaps recurring) moments of nostalgia are triggered and/or tied to. What are some of yours?
