It seems like, with these kind of things, anything not TF-specific is either in an existing thread or just not discussed since they're not part of something deemed important enough to get its own thread already.

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:45 PM)

Yeah, but it's for Transformers specifically

@  Gryllid : (19 July 2019 - 12:39 PM)

There is. It's called "SDCC 2019 thread"

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:24 PM)

no general SDCC thread?

@  Benbot : (19 July 2019 - 12:08 PM)

I never even bothered to see it.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (19 July 2019 - 10:30 AM)

O never hated it, the whole thing was an Indiana Jones movie. I didn't care for the CGI, but that's just nature of the beast.

@  Telly : (18 July 2019 - 09:18 PM)

after 38 years and i dont know how many viewings, today is the first time i noticed indiana jones doesnt use a revolver in the bar fight in raiders...

@  Kalidor : (18 July 2019 - 05:33 PM)

@Sabrblade Depends on when you're here. I used to have the backups happen once daily, now I have them happen once per hour so you might often see a hesitation at the top of every hour for 30-45 seconds.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:56 PM)

And lastly, if it becomes too much hassle to deal with - it might just get sent into the cornfield and replaced with a Discord box anyway. So cool it.

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Second thing is we do actually have the ability to ban users specifically from using Shoutbox if it's being abused like that

@  Kalidor : (16 July 2019 - 12:55 PM)

Hey all - just a reminder and heads up. The Shoutbox has been kept here as a courtesy because it's what you folks like in lieu of Discord - but a few things to remember is that P&R should stay in P&R and isn't really something that needs to be dragged out here in the most public of spaces.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Done.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 10:25 AM)

You can make a new one. I doubt anybody would stop you.

@  Nevermore : (16 July 2019 - 10:16 AM)

There was a thread but it appears to have disappeared. Might have been lost in one of the older forum sweeps.

@  NotVeryKnightly : (16 July 2019 - 09:58 AM)

Yeah this is pretty much circumventing the fact that we have different rules for political talk.

@  fourteenwings : (16 July 2019 - 09:55 AM)

Okay, so, basically, can we not do politics in here anymore? I mean, considering how often @Nevermore, you talk about your work conditions, don't you think it's time for a dedicated thread in P&R?

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:39 AM)

Scratch that; that's insulting to honest salads. Whatever that was was the text equivalent of hamburger.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:38 AM)

Would you like some dressing to go with your word salad?

@  Paladin : (16 July 2019 - 09:34 AM)

yes; it now goes "shit piss hug *BLEEP* ^$@^ motherhuger **** turd fart encyclopedia & Socialism."

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 09:24 AM)

This is an American site, but isn't that unnecessarily severe language? IIRC it's one of the top four offensive pejoratives to English people

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 July 2019 - 08:52 AM)

It's amusing how so many (U.S.) wankers in this world love to whine "capitalism good socialism bad!" in the abstract while simultaneously pretending that megacorporations dominating de facto monopolies is anathema to the core capitalistic principle of competition benefits everyone.

@  unluckiness : (16 July 2019 - 05:17 AM)

I make an effort to wear my backpack on the days I do comic runs on my bike. It's a not insignificant distance and investment of time, so I dress properly. It's the backpack of holding from thinkgeek. I managed to get it for "free" a few years back.

 

Also: the my little pony series, and the nicklelodeon avatar books.

 

Edit! Riding! I was planning on taking a run today, but it was entirely too nice not to be outside.

Tired of feeling tired and fat all the time, decided to start exercising last month. I'm not using weights or running, just using an app with basic stretches/exercises I can do at home. Planks are hard! Haven't lost any weight but I'm feeling better in general. My right shoulder no longer hurts when I sleep with my arms under the pillow, and my back is hurting less. The app also includes face/neck exercises, and they do look/feel a little better too. I know I need to work on my diet to lose weight, but that is going to be the hard part. TMM shares my craving for sweets and he won't eat veggies/fruit much, so there's always junk food lying around the house.

Weight lose can come later: slowly build yourself into better habits by adding (then adding to.) a weekly exercise regimen. Get used to doing this stuff routinely, make the time for it. Then you build it, and yourself, up from there. YES: talk to TMM about his diet, your diet, and your desire to get into better shape/health. You might never change him, BUT if he understand what and why you're doing this: he'll be more likely to help the process along. Clear communication never stops being important.

 

As a note: you will probably not stop feeling tired, but it'll go from worn out to drained. Doesn't sound like much, but being tired from a good effort is a great feeling.

Didn't want to take a bike ride, so I ran! Frankly, I am thoroughly enjoying having the option.

 

Miles:  837.06 + 3.5 = 840.56
Uppers: ,850
Lowers: 15,950

And it's starting to feel really good too. Alternating between running and biking is helping both. I think I'll be upping my running distance to 4 miles soon.

Just realized I only worked my core twice last month :/

 

I'm also up about 5 pounds over the start of May. My goal was to be to 200 by June 1, not back up to 217...

May was a bit of a bust, I only did something active 11 days... partly from a cold/sinus thing I got right at the end of April, which lingered as a cough & sore throat for a while. And then there were a couple freelance rush jobs during the 2nd half of the month that led to 2 all-nighters (separated by about a week), and that kinda throws me off for days after... I'm getting too old for that stuff!

But, there was really no weight gain either during that time period, so that's a plus!

And I've managed 8 days of activity so far this month, so I'm happy with that! (And my swim last night felt really good and strong, so I feel back up to speed with that.)

So far in June: 3x 4 mile run/walks, 2x 1 mile swims, 1 arm day, 2 chest days

 

Miles: 860.25 + 14 = 874.25

Fero, you're really cute! Those pop tarts are dangerous though. Maybe you could donate the unopened boxes to a food bank?

This week was a wash. Too much family stuff and running around exhausting myself. Barely managed to do just face exercises a few times. Plus, there's a delicious ice cream cake in the freezer that needs to get eaten. XD
