Zero interest in attending one of those gladiatorial melees where people literally get killed over toaster ovens that are still, even on sale, three digits plus percent more expensive than they are to manufacture.

With online ordering so common now, the attraction must be in getting to punch someone in the face for a Playstation.

When I wanted one of the perpetually rare Nintendos, I just waited until I got a notification that a game store had them in stock, then drove down and bought it. Two other people were in the store and didn't even send one covetous glance in my direction.

Bought myself a haircut and had them nuke my 2 inch long full beard as well.  Feels good to look good again.

Got my new Bosch Icon wiper blades in today.  It's great to have brand new blades that don't streak or make noise anymore.

Finally found a revolver I want to buy, from someone I know which is nice.

https://i.imgur.com/eHdsHBw.jpg

Model 14-3 .38sp, heavy barrel, sight rib, owner is a bit of a clown and owns a sign business so he stickered the barrel with genuine carbon fibre tape.

The last one, stock Model 19, is a bit worn and nobody can be bothered repairing them (would be a doddle if I had a lathe) so good chance it will be scrapped. A bit of a shame as that got me to 3rd in the state.

Hopefully it all works out, paperwork is a PITA and only getting harder.

I bought a 30 pack of tissue boxes and 4 large refill bottles of hand sanitizer. These are for my classroom.

I then took a picture and posted it to Facebook. The board of education member I am FB friends with saw it and gave it a like.

I am such a nice person. Come and see

Olympus TG6

Pretty much the same as the TG3 with a better sensor and worse user interface.

I would have thought GPS on/off would be the least used function of them all, but no, that merits a mechanical switch.

Actually useful functions are hidden behind multiple non-sensical button pushes, flipping from optical to digital zoom was done by just continuing to hold the zoom lever, now its a different button and jumps in steps not continuous, requiring jumping backwards and forwards between optical and digital zoom to get framing right.

There's a whole extra dial which seems to do nothing that two buttons didn't already do.

Very weird and I'm sure it will make me angry, which is a shame because the intention of buying the thing was to reduce my general anger level and save time at work taking photos and videos - IT blocking any means of transferring photos from personal devices except email and the company not providing useful cameras. Or they do but the batteries are dead, the memory cards are full and the USB cables are long gone.
This thing is now whitelisted on the network, apparently.
At least the macro photography - which is why i bought it - is amazing.
I decided decades ago to extend my sanity by just using my own camera, not spending my day

Looking for the camera
Looking for the charger
Looking for the USB cable
Asking who the photos belonged to and which photos could be safely deleted
etc

I have to email myself pics but only directly. Google asked me to make a drive folder and I couldn't access it cause it used a url shortener.

Fun time with IT

A snow foam lance. Which didn't work very well because my decade old karcher pressure washer doesn't have much more pressure than the garden hose pipe.

Bought a set of adjustable dumbbells using rewards points from work. I didn't realize the "50-lb set of 2" meant they were 50 lb each though, so getting the busted up, unwieldy box inside was the first exercise I've done with them.

I backed a project on Kickstarter for a wallet made from coffee-based leather.  I'm due for a new wallet soon anyway so it would be pretty neat if this one was quality.

I bought tickets to the Shen Yun show for my Chinese girlfriend. She said the whole crowd will be "American guys with their Asian girlfriends." Apparently Chinese people see this on their T.V. all the time. It is nothing special to them.

Chinese people definitely don't see that on their TV on a regular basis. Shen Yun is funded by Falun Gong, a psuedo-religious group based in the US that also owns the Epoch Times and is responsible for a ton of anti-CPC and far-right propaganda.

I know the whole cult part of it. I am talking about the type of performances. They do the same type of performances for Chinese New Year and all that other stuff just without the the anticommunist propaganda the Falun Gong people use.

It is kind of like having a rodeo show in Saudi Arabia and saying it is a fancy traditional American whatever.

Shen Yun ”China before communism"
Rodeo "America before woke."

Rodeos are for sickos who enjoy snapping horse legs and then bribing a veterinarian to lie about it to the audience.

That stuff's fake culture anyway, like modern confederate patriotism.

The average farmer euthanises animals every week, if not every day, animals are just a commodity for them.

I look dimly upon abuses at farms as well (as per my previous email.jpg). Suffering inflicted for cruelty's sake, or just to save a buck. Similarly, canned pigeon shoots and trophy hunting. I don't know if the presence of farm abuses are supposed to lighten my view on "rodeo culture." See also: traditional (/spongebob) bullfights, abused circus animals, poor zoos, crazy cat people with a horde/hoard of diseased animals. Rodeos aren't much better (if at all) than literal seal clubbing for yucks.

Playing oldegon trail, I felt bad enough for leaving behind the meat of fractions of digital animals that I couldn't carry back to my digital wagon.
