Make his fur a red and black flannel pattern

Bonus points if you can work in a red and black flannel pattern on his chest plate.

Might as well make it cliched. Lumberjack moose male and aristocratic deer female.

Or their aristocratic deer.

@  TriBlurr : (18 February 2019 - 08:10 PM)

@  Arazyr : (18 February 2019 - 11:16 AM)

They haven't (yet, at least) on the stuff I currently have in my Stack. Haven't had them ship anything for a while, though, so I don't know if they will when I do...

@  Benbot : (18 February 2019 - 11:04 AM)

Does TFSource charge sales tax?

@  wonko the sane? : (18 February 2019 - 09:47 AM)

That's because, once upon a time, the people whom owned the animals weren't the people whom butchered them. So the pig was owned by a saxon who spoke english, but butchered by a french speaker. So a pig got cut up into PORC chops.

In that case, I don't see anything wrong with English speakers calling it what it is in English. Even though we technically use the French words for what comes out of it. "Beef", "pork"...

@  Bass X0 : (17 February 2019 - 02:04 PM)

I’d like a Siege Thundercracker who has his regular blue colors Cybertronian jet mode which transforms into a robot mode with his Action Master colors. Looks like it could be possible.

The cow was slaughtered in the abattoir.

@  wonko the sane? : (17 February 2019 - 08:53 AM)

It's not a pretty name: abattoir is literally just the french word for slaughterhouse.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (17 February 2019 - 08:46 AM)

Giving it a pretty name won't make it a pretty place.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (17 February 2019 - 02:45 AM)

I do believe there is an aphorism about the U.S.A. and yogurt being different because after 200 years the latter will have a culture.

@  Maruten : (16 February 2019 - 11:30 PM)

There's another word for "abattoir"?! Honestly you people, "slaughterhouse" is a bit on the nose.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (16 February 2019 - 10:09 PM)

I learned this week that the French-style term abattoir is prevalent in the UK/Commonwealth in place of where U.S.-American Anglophones would say "slaughterhouse". Fascinating.

Is Verbesserschlimmerung a change that was intented to make things worse but made them better instead?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 February 2019 - 07:35 AM)

We have a similar word in english "government".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:05 AM)

The meaning of this word is: A change that was intended as an improvement but ended up making things worse.

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

It's a portmanteau of "Verbesserung", which means "improvement", and "Verschlimmerung", which means "worsening".

@  Nevermore : (13 February 2019 - 06:04 AM)

Your new German word for today: Verschlimmbesserung.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:17 PM)

Fortunately it's been long enough now that the possibility exists another label like Shout Factory or Arrow could pick it up and give it an updated release.

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:16 PM)

It's the same with their Dawn of the Dead blu-ray, and several others

@  TM2-Megatron : (12 February 2019 - 02:11 PM)

In Volcano's case it isn't so much a case just of amazon or eBay sellers... it looks like rather than releasing it directly, Fox licensed it out to Starz/Anchor Bay, and it's subsequently gone out of print

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (12 February 2019 - 01:28 PM)

There's Amazon sellers for you.

@  Telly : (12 February 2019 - 12:49 PM)

thought about buying volcano on bluray last night, until i saw the price on amazon: $135. the used ones arent much cheaper at $90. i know the 3p sellers can set any price they want, but come on. $90-$135 for a 20 year old movie that was only so-so?

@  unluckiness : (12 February 2019 - 05:12 AM)

GOt my hopes up there for a bit. Last I heard it was nebulously in 2019.

Just saying I'm 149.6lbs so just gotta lose 3lbs to get back to what I was earlier this week.

Also, there's intermittent fasting timing apps! I should try it.

One arm push ups! Nice! With baby!
I could do like... three a few years ago, haha

Baby? More like almost 8 year old! But the one handed ones were without her, it was regular pushups where I added her weight.

 

As far as weight is concerned, just wanted to encourage you. I hit a new low of 213.65 earlier this week, but added 2 pounds between Thursday and Friday's dinners (my in laws gave us some money so we could have a night out, and I enjoyed every bite of it!). I understand exactly what you feel, since I'm now 2 more pounds further from my 185 goal weight, but I think fluctuations of 2-3 pounds in a given week are healthy. I get it though...once I'm at 185, I'll freak out the first time I hit 190 again.

 

Yesterday, was core. Today, during a trip to Aldi I ran across a 12 pound vest for only $8.99. I wore it while doing an indoor run tonight. Believe it or not, I hit a new pace for the new year: 9:30 per mile. It was challenging, and I expect to be up tomorrow with water retention even more (since my muscles will be in repair overdrive now), but it was worth it. Hoping this makes me faster.

 

Miles: 136.44 + 2.2 = 138.64
Uppers: 8319
Lowers: 3390
Core: 2497 + 260 = 2757

Oh yeah, she did ask you what happens if she got on your back, hehe.

I was lying in bed last night, being tempted to get up and eat a chocolate wafer crunch bar but fell asleep instead. It was too cold to leave the comfy bed, haha

Today, I hit a new weight low since at least 2010, maybe 2009. 212.53! I was so positive I would be up today, since my wife made an amazing potato soup last night and I went back twice for another serving. So I was super surprised to be down, I even checked it again just to be sure.

 

Today, I did a full body workout. Low reps, since I walked/stretched a lot in between. But something different. I wore the 12 pound weight vest the entire time, and I could tell it midway through too.

 

Miles: 54.79
Uppers: 9044 + 20 = 9064
Lowers: 3984 + 21 = 4005
Core: 2820 + 11 = 2841

 

I also did 5 burpees. I don't know where to put them, since they work the entire body in 1 rep. Thoughts?

Burpees have push up for 'upper' and squats for 'lower'. Does it do 'core'? Cuz, I swear, I will do burpees to add to our list if core is included.

"Getting up in the morning" is getting to be workout enough. 

 

I don't know what it is, but since last summer something's been causing the family cat to just freak out at night when everyone's trying to sleep. About the only thing that'll settle him down is if I get him and hold him like an infant while I'm seated. I can be doing this for as much as four hours straight, and that stresses my spine. 

 

I've found that if I sit in the padded chair in the family office after I wake up and recline it a bit, it helps my back significantly. Problem is, that same cat takes the sound of me sitting in the chair as some sort of invitation to play. He wants me to get up and play with him, with "play" being "chase him around the house. 

 

If I don't chase him, he'll rip something up in protest. The relatives I live with spoiled him to the extent that he's used to getting what he wants, and he gets destructive when that doesn't happen. 

 

The up and down as I get up to try and stop him from destroying things, sit back down, and then have to get up again is stressing things that much more. After about half an hour of this, I'm in enough pain that I have trouble walking. 

 

This usually ends with me having to spend the next hour in that chair dealing with things unless I want some Advil.

I reached 143.8lbs! Just 4 more lbs and I'll be at my goal! Then I'll start eating tuna for my protein and try to build muscle. Maybe pics when I'm at 140lbs.

The diet was just really me living alone and controlling my food. Yeeeeah, kinda not eating full meals sometimes.

I know it's bad, yikes. But I'll regulate once I'm at my target weight of 140lbs.

Between the cold my nephew gave me, and the weather spiking above zero © to cause thaws, I've been alternating between down and badly over exerting myself. There's been awful ice this year, and three times in the last two weeks I've had to go clear the shit out which is god awful back breaking work. Two hours of it on friday wound up not only making my back feel like it was broken, but managed to give me a migraine on top of it.

 

But still: felt well enough to take my run today. So, back into the swing of things!
