Subject: The Dead Zone - Random thoughts and ramblings
Date Posted: 27 Feb 2015 at 3:15pm
Ok, I've thought about starting a thread like this for a while now, so here goes. Sometimes this forum is completely dead. I, as well as many of you, come here expecting solace from an overworked and underpaid society that is overwhelmed with garbage. And by garbage, I mean Facebook, Twitter, hashtags, Google overload, etc. Anyways,  I thought I would start a thread where anything goes. I know we have random music threads, as well as what did you do today threads. There are a bunch of them that encompass every subject. But I would like to try something else. A completely open thread to express any and all feelings. I would like for any and all political banter to not happen here, but where's the fun in that? Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.  Like I said, anything goes. Anyways,  a totally free and open place to talk openly about anything. And I mean anything. Sex, drugs, rock and roll. And hell, even if you secretly like rap, it's OK to say it here. Anything goes in the dead zone..

Oh yeah I know .. that was just the first thing that came to mind when I read the title so I threw it out there LOL   

I am pissed, though. I got donuts this morning on the way in and the lady gave me friggin' strawberry filled instead of chocolate filled like I asked.

As dead as this place has been getting lately, it ought to become a popular thread.

Of course, if the place is dead, there won't be anyone posting anyway, so by extension, the thread will also be dead.

I've become dependant upon this forum, especially in the AM.  I'm up at 5 or earlier every day.  After I take some vitamins, feed the cats, go outside for a smoke, and then turn on the news to make sure ISIS hasn't arrived in my neighborhood, I come upstairs to check emails and see what's up on CIH.  So when, like this morning, when CIH seems to have been a dead zone for the previous 9 hours, I feel a tad let down.  There's really not much else to do this early.

I guess I can go have another smoke.

Do you have a brand?

I go for whatever's cheap or on sale, as long as it's not that totally generic stuff---like Pyramid or Basics.  Too harsh.  Otherwise, I don't care.  Some people prefer one brand over another.  Not me.  They're all the same to me.

I used to smoke in my house.  No more.  This has helped me cut down to about 1/3rd of what I used to smoke.

My brand is Winston, which is usually a little cheaper (by "little" I mean all of maybe 10-20 cents LOL ) here than the other premium brands.  The nearby Buc-ee's has them for $5.50.

I love fresh strawberries, but never liked artificial flavored e.g. strawberry jelly, ice cream, etc.  I dunno why that is, it just is.  Similarly, I love the smell of coconut, but hate the taste Dead

My brand was/is Doral 100's.

I have around a full carton of them in my bottom fridge door that were purchased like 15 years ago or so.

Still good, too.

I just paid $4.42/pack for Marlboro Blacks the other day.  I also occasionally get coupons for $1 off per pack.  That'd bring it down to $3.42.

I roll my own. I buy a pound bag of "The Good Stuff". It's good for 2.5 -3 cartons. Tastes kind of like Marlboros. $16.69 a bag. Filter tubes are $2.59 a carton. But when I  do buy, I go Pall Mall. I seem to smoke less of them because they last longer. 

And yeah, I get the not smoking inside thing. I'm in the process of getting my apartment ready to paint, so once it's painted,  no smoking inside.  Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

I have a tobacco plant in my backyard right now that I'm trying to get rid of.  My neighbor gave it to me when it was little more than a sprout.  It's now fairly big.  I think I'm gonna give it back to him.

After washing my walls and ceiling a few months back, I decided to stop smoking inside.  You wouldn't believe how dirty it makes a room.  After I cleaned, my walls and ceilings actually became a few shades brighter.

^^ I smoked in my first apartment which I lived at for 3 years, and in the living room my sofa was against one wall and the TV/entertainment stand was against the opposite wall.  When I moved out you could see the outline of the furniture on the wall from the color contrast due to the smoke LOL

Save the plant for the zombie apocalypse. Shift+R improves the quality of this image.

If I was faced with a zombie apocalypse, I'd make damned sure I stocked up on smokes.  I don't know how Darryl only seems to smoke one occasionally.

I don't know why people who quit smoking years ago, don't start up again when they're 70 or 75.  I mean, at that point, why not?

I never understood that about Darryl either. He must enjoy them in a way we can't comprehend. I suppose walkers will do that to ya. Just survive until the next smoke. Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

If I ever quit, I don't think I'd start again. I'd hock stuff like Jack LaLanne. Be in my 80's-90's and selling juicers.

This is a pic of the ceiling in my computer room (which is painted pale yellow).  I left a smoke stain as a reminder.  You can see it as a square towards the lower right of the pic.

Some girl had a disagreement with someone over the color of a dress in a picture, so she tweeted for help in determining what the real color was. 

Some saw it as blue & black while others saw it as white & gold.

It blew up & went viral with something like 30 million responses.



Ermm

They said on the news that it had something to do with the exposure of the pic different people were looking at, but that makes no sense because it's the same digital pic.

Probably the different screen settings of different computers/tablets/phones.

It looks like it's somewhat reflective, too.

I remember iridescent clothes in the mid-60s.  From one angle, it'd be maroon.  From another angle, it'd be green or something.  Then there were those flip-flop paintjobs that people were having done to their cars not too long ago.  I saw one that was actually kinda freaky.

Whatever...the dress is kind of ugly.

Ugly nonetheless.  And probably like $5000+..

Yep, usually we need a certain old married couple to get into a political argument to get anything to 3 pages in that amount of time.

I agree with Thor. I clicked on this thread to post virtually what Thor said. This thread is not dead. It has already gotten replies that are in the 70s, despite having started just yesterday. That is a huge ass success.

So the wife listens to this radio station called 105.5 wjyy that plays a mix of music. Rock, rap, pop, etc. Always seems to have more rap\ hip hop on though. I always tease her about it because I hate rap and hip hop. So I  got  to thinking of what sounds I could hear and have it be less painful to listen to. I finally came to the startling revelation that I would rather listen to the sounds of my bones slowly being broken. At least then there would actually be an instrument being played, even if it is me...

Improvement, no?

I love the sound of breaking bones!  The accompanying cries of anguish, too.

So, that's a no-brainer.

I'd rather hear the sound of a 1990s dial-up modem than rap.

Oh wait, that's called dubstep, isn't it?

They are currently in the middle of another one. One thing I remember from my law enforcement courses is the most dangerous call is domestic disturbance so I'm avoiding political forum for now.

Some fun points:

Quote The Chainsaw was invented to widen the pelvis is a woman took too long during her labour.

Think about that, ladies, then go beat your husbands over the head with a chainsaw if they own one.


Quote
Imagine every star in the galaxy had a trillion planets orbiting it...and every planet had a trillion people on it, and every person had a trillion decks of cards, and shuffled them 1,000 times a second since the big bang, they'd only just recently be making decks that existed already.

The mathematical chances of a specific order of cards occurring each shuffle is:

1/80,658,175,170,943,878,571,660,636,856,403,766,975,289,505,440,883,277,824,000,000,000,000


So, forget synthesizing eggs from skin cells, forget curing cancer, forget turning coal into gold...if you want to feel like god, and create something that has never - even once - existed in the universe before...go shuffle a deck of cards.

Bright and sunny now but some snow is moving in tomorrow morning.
 
I'm a little annoyed with Am Fam, they want to send someone to our house for an inspection.
Great, when State Farm did this I got pissed and wouldn't let the guy on my roof.
Then, today I get this 2 page survey from Am Fam, how the hell can I grade your performance when we have never made a claim.  God, I despise insurance companies.

The faithful departed pixel is in the very top left corner.  If the drop down video title is down, then it covers it up.

It's red, so it must have died a pretty bloody and horrific death Cry

Its a cursor, I recognize the shape! The watermark is "fraps.com" I guess this a video that was recorded off a computer.

Oh! the red thing! that a red flashing "60" no clue what it means or what its for.

Ad already figured it out while I was making my post, but I blew it up to full screen and watched, and it's not a dead pixel - it's a quickly flashing number (most likely the FPS rate while the dude was recording it on fraps).  It mostly stays at 60, but drops to 59 and 58 a couple times toward the final few seconds.

Here it is expanded:



If that's what Jimbo was talking about and what I thought too, that's actually what that is. The other 2 things of course are the arrow cursor and fraps watermark.

So, there are no dead pixels after all! Clap   (goddamn talk about random thoughts/solved mysteries LOL )
