4ish years ago when I bought a house I was convinced not to get a house inspection, would it be crazy to get one now just to make sure it's all good?
  • Not at all. We're free to move whenever we like, legally. There's nothing in the contract that says we can't. But if we did, any mortgage we'd get wouldn't have our current (really good) interest rate, and we'd have to pay post-2021 home prices for wherever we'd move to. Like I said, we'd end up paying four times as much over the span of the loan for an equivalently-priced home.

    Which is a choice that we could make. But absent a really good reason to move that would offset that massive financial incentive to stay, we're stuck here until we pay it off unless we're willing to take that huge financial hit.

  • Professor Arthur: Good news, everyone! We're going on a quest to find the Holy Grail.

    Sir Robender: I'm not going. Bite my shiny metal armor.


    Sir Leelancelot: Please! I saw the Grail from outside! Show it to me!

    Branniganthrax: Oh, I'll show it to you. How would you like some... [Steps closer] peril?

    Leelancelot and Kifalahad: Ugh.


    Hermes the Bridge Guardian: The bureaucracy requires me to ask you these questions three, ere the other side you see.

    Sir Fry-celot: Ask me the questions, bridge-keeper. I am not afraid.

    Hermes: What...is your name?

    Fry: Sir Fry-celot the Stupid.

    Hermes: What...is your quest?

    Fry: I dunno, something about a cup? I wasn't listening.

    Hermes: [sighs] What...is your favorite color?

    Fry: Purple-orange.

    Hermes: Good enough. Go ahead.

    Robender: What?! THAT'S EASY!


    Zoidbergé: Your mother was a hamster and your father smelled of elderberries. Mmmm, elderberries.

    Professor Arthur: Ugh. Uh, well, tell your Lord...

    Zoidbergé: Now go away or I will taunt you a second time! Woo-woo-woo-woo!


    Fry-thur: One...two...five!

    Leelancelot: Three, Fry.

    Fry-thur: What?

    [Explosion]


    Fry-thur: Whoa, that's cool. What's your name?

    Enchantress: There are some who call me...Amy?

    Fry-thur: Dope.

    Amy: I know, right?


    Narrator: Right then, the animator suffered a fatal heart attack.

    Matt Groenig (live action): I'll never die.

  • Pure genius
  • The meme is Monty Python's version of King Arthur. I totally believe they would switch it around for the joke. It might not be grammatically the same, but it's thematically correct.

  • 4ish years ago when I bought a house I was convinced not to get a house inspection, would it be crazy to get one now just to make sure it's all good?
  • Totally. Our house is worth almost double what we paid for it before the pandemic. And during one of the lockdowns, we refinanced to a 15-year mortgage at the same monthly payment as our 30-year had been. All of which means that if we were trying to buy this year, we'd be paying four times as much over the span of the loan.

    Golden handcuffs, though. We can't move for the next ten years now. Thankfully we don't want to.

  • Biden Camp Has a Field Day With Wobbly Trump at Podium
  • Ugh. I hate it when geriatric populist fascists accidentally stumble into a halfway decent joke.

    “I notice it keeps tilting to the left,” Trump joked, “Like too many other things!”

    I guess he is an "entertainer," so it shouldn't be much of a surprise that his jokes are better than his platform. Double entendre definitely intended.

    Of course, to everyone watching—at least, to everyone watching who isn't behind Trump—it's pretty clear that everything is actually tilting to the right, and becoming a whole lot more unstable.

  • Maine Cybertruck Owner Sad Everyone Hates His Truck
  • There's a van in my neighborhood with a manifesto painted on every visible outside surface about how God entered the driver's body. It's a unique design and gets attention. And I would never want to drive it.

  • "Do you know how many spells are just recycled incantations?"
  • But does it change the game in a meaningful way, enough to offset the complexity that's being added? Enough that house rules for an individual group about flavoring spells and changing damage types wouldn't be enough?

  • "Do you know how many spells are just recycled incantations?"
  • "How does a simple "create water" spell have a 15 second cast time? Is it doing something else in the background or were the glyphs written by a first year apprentice?"

    And that's how the backdoor (literal) in the xzutils material component was discovered.

  • 2FA after recent update

    I had 2FA enabled for lemmy.world before the big update this past weekend, and when I logged out/in this morning I discovered that 2FA had been turned off for my account. I've got it turned back on and I think it's working now, but just a heads up that if you had 2FA enabled you might need to re-enable it.

    Messages for Android Beta scheduled send broken

    In the latest Messages for Android Beta, scheduled send is broken due to a date validation bug. It won't let you schedule messages after today's date number in any month. So, for instance, today's date is 29 November, 2023; it won't allow any messages to be scheduled in December unless they're scheduled on the 29th, 30th, or 31st. Also, it won't allow any messages to be scheduled in 2024, for what I assume are similar reasons.

    Reverting to the latest stable version fixes it and allows messages to be scheduled for any future date.

    !
