I killed a T-90 going across the top of the dam from a flying Blackhawk with a SMAW right in the ass and that is one of my most cinematic video achievements.
Sounds amazing. I've had moments like that (sniping jet pilots from a transport chopper seat), but the one that sticks out for me has to be the absurd pre-nerf Blackhawk 79 killstreak that about had me questioning the gamer ethics of what I was doing. Like my toon would need some 1 on 1 with a therapist after. It wasn't super spectacular to look at. Just mechanical and steadily horrifying.

I declare the pilot was as much in the wrong profiting off it.

A buddy and I did pin a sniper for a bit of stab/revive humor. After a few cycles, we released him back into the wild like a rehabilitated animal. This was vividly cinematic and the funniest part of the whole affair. He stopped at the corner of a fence, looked back, and when we didn't shoot he crossed the street, got in a tank, and drove away. I want to feel bad about it but it had us in stitches at the time. I can only imagine he might've seen the humor in it, because he could have easily had his revenge.

Another scenario, the victim escaped his fate and turned into a bunny hopping cyclone of bullet death. That was just as amazing and memorable.

A third I recall ended tragically as the body of a commander slid limply down a hill, unable to be targeted for revival. I think a group of players on both sides were watching, and did nothing to help! "Don't die on us!"

Previous to those, I interrupted a cluster of it (actual stat padding this time) by smashing a vodnik through the whole affair.

I think I played that game too many hours.

Famous from when the Walking Dead jumped the shark in many fan's eyes.

Funny thing about America is that if you beat a home intruder with a barbed wire bat you would get into more trouble than if you shot them with a rifle.
I am going to buy the bat with next month's Amazon points. I made this decision because Negan is my spirit character.
As an adult, Negan worked as a gym teacher, helping his students improve upon their weaknesses and molding them into stronger individuals.

Nah, a standard bat is dual-use, thats an offensive weapon.

If you actually bash someone's head in it'll take hours to get the hair and skin out of the barbs.

Mac you might want to check on your local/state laws about modified baseball bats. Regardless, it's not something that looks very good for a teacher to be in possession of. It's an ugly weapon, and excessively cruel even if you do just claim it's a collector thing.

Thanks for your concerns but I am not a teacher. I am a I don't know gardener? Yes for now on I will be a Native American gardner.

Anyway I am not going to put the bat on Facebook. It is purely for house defense/zombie apocalypse. You shouldn't ever promote violence on the internet and I stay true to that. As a gardener I think it is important to nourish all life. The Great Spirit of my people is pretty clear on that.

Keep a glove and ball in your trunk at least. I guess the story would be that you play deathmatch baseball...

I really wish I had gotten a chance to try these hipster cigarettes before I quit in 2010.

I suspect the difference between these and Marlboro Reds is like the difference between the taste of Jack Daniels and Johnny Walker. Like indistinguishable while it is burning your throat.

Good on you for quitting, Mac. One hears stories of substance abuse issues among our valued Indigenous population, and I'm so happy to see that it's not a cycle that can't be broken. Personally, I think that cigarettes offer a momentary escape from the trials of daily life, and shouldn't be looked down on as a habit with no value. With that said, it's a habit that can and should be replaced by more positive pursuits. What have you taken up in place of ripping huge drags off a fuckin' dick stick after your 6th Natty Lite at the watering hole up the street?

I see he deleted the post on his new Indigenous backstory. I was looking forward to that set of posts. Can't wait for the next iteration of his being.

EDIT - I am serious

Just skipped through parts of this but got a huuuge dose of nostalgia just watching the bases with the UAV radar spinning etc

Today I received a leather key organiser

https://www.carlfriedrik.com/collection … -organiser

Really handy, so much better than having a random ball of keys in my pocket, this fits neatly next to my wallet.

However some of my keys (like this) are a bit big for this thing.

I can't find any locksmiths that make thin versions of these types of keys so I wondered if the engineers of BF2s (Dilbert) have any suggestions. Would an engineering firm cut me a custom shaped key handle?

that looks like a pretty regular main door key here, like for a lever lock. the one below the latch key.

An engineering firm could mill it flat, the cylindrical tip is needed for function in the lock, you'd also lose a bit of torsional strength and stiffness.
If most of the thickness is in the handle that can be reduced, losing a bit of strength again.
All in all probably easier to get the lock changed.

Black Friday is today. Christmas is my favorite Holiday because I love giving gifts to loved ones. What better why to show you love someone than by acquiring expensive physical stuff for them? So far I bought another gift for my dad and will do shopping for my nieces today.

Black Friday (and Cyber Monday) is a good time to buy large screen TVs for like 40% off. Not so much for individual computer components, I find. No better (and sometimes worse) than other sales throughout the years.
