Pet origin stories
  • His name is Sherlock. Here's a different post of him. He's mostly Pit Bull, but he also has some Chow Chow, Boxer, German Shepherd, and Husky.

  • Pet origin stories
  • The adoption fee at my shelter is $150 for dogs. Dogs are chipped, fixed, and up-to-date on vaccines. The day my wife and I adopted our guy, they were taking a hundred bucks off the adoption fee for large dogs. We walked in expecting to adopt a small dog, but the one we wanted to meet was adopted out and left ten minutes before we got there. So we went and looked at the other dogs. And then we stumbled across this big guy in the back of his cage, head cocked to the side, ears way too big for his head, not making a sound. My wife tells the staff she wants to meet him. We spent a whole 90 minutes trying to coax him out from under chairs. He was terrified.

    Naturally, we took him home. And here he is an hour after getting there.

    He stayed under my desk for the next three days.

    He goes to the park once or twice a day, daycare once a week, and was in weekly group training for four months. He is so so so much more confident now. It's been just the most rewarding thing watching him come out of his shell.

    Bonus: Here he is a couple weeks ago being murdered to death by one of the puppies at the park.

    We've had him for about a year. He turns 2 in a few months.

  • It's Fantasy time!
  • Okie here. It's hard not being all the fuck about sports. I like football. I played football in school. But it doesn't constitute the majority of my personality. My granddad ALWAYS has OU games on. It doesn't matter if they're #2 or #22 or got beat by Kansas. It doesn't matter if they're playing in the Rose Bowl or the Cloroxβ„’ Toilet Bowl. He's practically consumed by it. I don't understand it. I love going to the games. You go for the long walk in a loud crowd to end up inside and overpay for a shitty beer that gets warm in five minutes (because it's 97 degrees), and after enduring all that, your guys might still lose. It actually kinda rocks.

    But I prefer concerts. I get to dance to my favorite songs and watch my favorite aging 90s rockers put on a show for cheap because they haven't been big in 20 years. A concert hardly goes south. But nobody shows up to the water cooler on Monday and goes, "How about that Weezer concert?"

    It gets pretty awkward having to tell people you didn't watch the game because sports is just not important to you.

  • Train enthusiast
  • If it takes more than 4-6 hours to drive there, high speed rail is the clear choice. I'm someone who has been on several 10+ hour road trips, and driving for more than a few hours at a time sucks. You waste up to an entire day just driving. Even if it does take the same amount of time, it'd be nice to nap or read a book in that time instead of focusing on just driving. It's mentally and physically exhausting.

    Especially I-70 in western Kansas and eastern Colorado.

  • Two Kinds Of Chocolate Available. You Decide
  • But what if nobody but the caddy smelt it? Is it the caddy, then, that dealt it and shat Trump's pants?

    Because if so, what a legend.

  • I've been visited by the Prelude Curse

    !

    The left door handle has been cracked ever since I got the car so this was coming sooner or later. A year of daily use ain't bad. Still, it came as a shock when, last Wednesday, I grabbed the handle, and the door didn't come open. I'm a big dude (tall and fat), and there wasn't room on the other wall to climb in through the passenger side. Somehow, I passed the acrobatics check it took to climb through the trunk and into the front seat. And I didn't hurt my back at 32 years old. Truly a feat to behold.

    I've already bought a handle, but it won't be in til Thursday. I could run around with it like this for a week, but I'm not gonna.

    Which means I'll be driving my wife's cargo ship for a few days.

    What’s pvp? An sti?
  • I don't care for pvp versus total strangers. Local pvp or co-op is where it's at. Same with LAN parties. My brother used to bring his PS3 over to my apartment in college. He'd hook up to the TV, I'd grab a PC monitor and headphones, and my roommate would bring his own TV to the living room and we'd play Borderlands 2 together. We used to also play a lot of Melee in those days. I miss that a lot.

  • At last, my orange boy achieved inner peace.

    For a few minutes anyway. Then it was back to his regularly scheduled chaos.

    He figured out where all of the cold air was coming from.

  • This fails to mention how he made it so that the side you're laying on is never the cool side.

  • giant trans flag rule
  • Same with the Germans. They really love their flag. I think the only group of people I've seen come close to it is Marylanders.

  • I'm just gonna stick to slotted, thanks
  • Fun fact: There are plenty of times a screw that looks like a Philips head is also compatible with a square drive. I've mostly seen this on electrical outlets and Ikea furniture.

    I don't know why Robertson/square drives aren't more common. They're stable and they resist stripping and rounding.

    One of the aspects I miss most about living in apartments is seeing all the cats basking in windows, including my own.

    Can you believe it?
  • Appreciate the advice. I change the filter every month on the 21st and clean the coil each March. We have really drafty early 70s windows.

    Might get my refrigerant checked.

  • Can you believe it?
  • It's been baking here the last couple weeks. We finally got some cooler air and some rain yesterday. Something like 73Β°F last night as my wife and I waited outside the restaurant for our valet driver. I was wearing a long sleeve button down and wasn't being murdered by heat. In early July. It was a miracle. We just kept asking each other what is this weather?It's only supposed to be 85-90 degrees for the next several days. It'll be nice for my air conditioning to not have to struggle to keep it cooler than 80Β°F indoors

    September is only a couple months away. I can't wait.

  • Mint is absolutely killing it
  • Mint is delicious and I'll fucking fight you over that.

  • Got a Point
  • Ah yes. 9 PM, when the heat index is still 100Β°F.

    Here's yesterday's peak heat index across Oklahoma. It being 99Β° isn't the problem. It feeling 10 degrees hotter is.

  • Got a Point
  • It's the AC for me, especially. When it's 35-40 degrees and swampy outside, the weather is downright dangerous, especially for physical activity.

  • I spent fourteen minutes doing the thing I needed to do. Time for a two hour siesta.

    Hello, fellow aging millennials.

    The local dog park has kiddie pools by the water spigots.

    It was like 102 degrees (~39Β°C) yesterday evening (and about as humid as Vietnam), but he was SOOOOOO BORED. So I got him out of the house. He made it eleven feet into the park, pooped, and immediately went to the pool afterwards to wait for me to fill it.
