Nice! I've moved away from the plastic spikes these days, as they tend to ground down way too quickly. This is the latest pair of golf shoes I bought. I like the turf style better:

I wasn't sure whether to go spike or spikeless, but at the end of the day they are very comfy and spikes are replaceable.

Black Friday shopping. I bought myself a LV wallet from The LV store at the American Dream Mall. Probably the most unnecessary purchase I ever made. But I am very happy with it.

Bought a 'new' pistol

Secondhand, custom match barrel, three position rearsight, various other extras.
Shoots well but needs some fine tuning.

Looks like this.

fun fact about accuracy in media is that it was a supporter of the vietnam war. i wonder if that makes them america's leading anti-asian organisation?

very misleading name, accuracy in media. making you think it's an impartial watchdog, when it's actually a bunch of conspiracy-touting right-wing nutters. i don't see how their doxxing harvard students like that is ok.

The group deployed the truck because it’s “incredibly important to know who the hateful antisemites are in our society.”
AP

aim via nyp wrote:

“If they’re ashamed of what they’ve done, they should apologize and we’ll take their names down. If they’re proud, then they should thank us for amplifying their message.”
ultimatums, blackmail, libel, stalking, maybe even arguably a form of terrorism.

"signed, 'israel treating people horribly is causing problems.'" (?)
"you are an anti-semite! (thank me for amplifying your message)."

wtf lol

conservatives lose their shit when their rich people get canceled for vile rhetoric, but it's ok to toss college students onto the sacrificial pyre, and proudly post about how you won't hire them for your own discriminatory reasons.

re: on topic, debating pulling the trigger on pc stuff if any of the cyber sales are worth anything, rather than something like jacking prices back to msrp so you can claim a bigger discount. the mood is more "this thing is getting rather old, better update before catastrophe" and frustration with hoggish programs eating all my ram than a thirst to crank up game details.

also, $500 wallet. that better have some star trek tech, mac. i can't tell because that website wants me to to enable cookies i don't want and won't get rid of the overlay until i do.

I like my new wallet. I will never lose my wallet ever again. It is so expensive that I always remember to put it someplace safe.

Regarding witch-hunt committed by some supporters of Israel, that is the moment I stopped supporting them. I am sure a lot of people had that same reaction. Cancel people over their beliefs about stuff over here but it is wrong to ruin people's lives for their beliefs about stuff happening on the other side of the world.

The CEO who was the first to declare that there should be a list backtracked a week later. I am not sure why exactly. It could be due to potential lawsuits or death threats or even because it is just a bad look.

People were going to LinkedIn and searching up people who had been part of these groups before the letter was compiled and adding them to a list. Almost all of the people were black and brown. A wealthy CEO compiling a list of black and brown people to not hire...

That sounds like something that will not look good in a wrongful termination lawsuit. Further, it actually reinforced the admittedly antisemitic belief that "The Jews" control everything when Jewish CEOs are conspiring to blacklist people for criticizing Israel.

I really don't like the idea of rich white guys colluding to keep minorities out of jobs.

I think Israel's supporters gravely misread where America is right now when they tried to scare people into supporting the country. This isn't the 90s anymore.

I bought two more watches. A discontinued Omega Speedmaster and another Oris Big Crown Pointer Date. I'm up to 6 watches. I need 2 more to fill out my watch case.

I've been eyeballing a Rolex for investment purposes, but im hesitant to drop tens of thousands of dollars on a piece of jewelry that I'd realistically only wear to the most formal of occasions. The itch is real though

From everything I'm seeing this seems to be a turning point, people have realised they aren't so much a poor oppressed people who deserve special treatment, they're vicious racists.

I went to the Rolex store at the mall. Luckily I had a LV shopping bag so it looked like I belonged in there.
https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/KIoAAOSwf9Njlnue/s-l1200.jpg
I talked to a store worker who showed me some merchandise. I asked them, they are androgynous, what would be an entry level Rolex "if I just wanted to brag I had a Rolex." $10,000 to $14,000.

That isn't obscenely expensive. And if you buy it once you will have it forever. You should get one. Wear it to your wedding to the Korean lady.

I was very close to buying a rare Ed White Omega Speedmaster (rarest Omega) but I decided I probably shouldn't because while there is a resale market, they aren't as sought after as Rolex.

This me trying to diversify my investments. I don't care at all about wearing a Rolex to justify my social status. I already own watches that are more expensive than baseline Rolex DJs.

@Mac: you can buy a used Rolex for as low as $2k, and a new one for not much more than that.

I have heard there are some models of Rolex for like 4 or 5 grand. I would be hesitant to buy a used one outside of some verified source since I don't know how to spot a fake.

I was talking to a lady coworker. "Hey, I have a quick question. If a lady gets a new handbag and wants to show it off, how do they do it without being obvious? Because I got this cool new wallet." She mentioned her husband has a Rolex and when he poses for photos he will do something that shows off the watch.

there's this thread where mac did a breakdown on guys buying stuff for their girlfriends. this is obviously the time those kind of guys should be showing off their wallet.

i don't blame that woman's husband for showing off the watch in photos. expensive and one of the few accessories afforded to men if you're still a part of that obsolete mindset, or trying to impress an old person.

but the most out-there urban kings with "man" purses, "man" buns, and utility kilts are vastly preferable to some stuffy, emotionally stunted 50s aesthetic that has no business being anywhere near current relevancy.

$70 discount. $95.53 worth of fees and surcharges. Might as well just given me a $15 service free and added the $70 onto the base price. I didn't buy it. I instead bought tickets to Medieval Times.
