On my shelf I have Ginrai donning the Star Convoy armor.

@  Liege : (19 November 2019 - 07:42 AM)

That he is.

@  Benbot : (18 November 2019 - 04:01 PM)

And a good boy

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 09:19 AM)

Hound is at least a very good toy.

@  ThunderWear : (18 November 2019 - 09:11 AM)

Hound is the only other one that even comes close to Chromia in my area, and he ships in two separate waves.

@  Liege : (18 November 2019 - 08:58 AM)

This might be how they finally get rid of all the Chromias. I've not seen a shelfwarmer like that in ages.

@  RichardT1977 : (17 November 2019 - 08:26 PM)

It's a good deal if you want a full set of Refraktor (and if they have them at your location)

@  TheMightyMol... : (17 November 2019 - 04:43 PM)

Here we can buy two and get one free, but at least two of them are gonna be the same toy, because lol distribution.

@  Bass X0 : (17 November 2019 - 01:01 PM)

In the U.K., it’s more like you but two, you only get one given how expensive they are.

2019 has been one long South Park episode.

@  Sjogre : (16 November 2019 - 10:46 PM)

Okay, that actually sounds pretty fun.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 12:49 PM)

It was set in the forties, featured Nazi's as the villains and had Kiko fight mostly Ice Age animals and a mythical dragon that now ruled the island guarding Kongs treasure.

@  Paladin : (15 November 2019 - 11:37 AM)

and it was ALSO eleven hours long.

@  Maximus Ambus : (15 November 2019 - 10:55 AM)

In a alternate reality Peter Jackson made Son of Kong.

@  wonko the sane? : (15 November 2019 - 09:30 AM)

To be fair to boba: everyone else to go into the sarlacc was a sacrifice. Stripped almost naked and tossed, and didn't have body armor, a jetpack and a weapon.

@  TheMightyMol... : (15 November 2019 - 06:54 AM)

Nah, he just has to keep up his plot insurance payments so he can shoot his way out of the Sarlacc again.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (15 November 2019 - 02:59 AM)

Funny, but everyone knows he bounty hunts for Jabba Hutt to finance his 'Vette.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (15 November 2019 - 02:54 AM)

Okay.. Not sure why.. but streaming is harder than jsut playing the game.. even though that's pretty much what I was doing.

@  Xellos : (14 November 2019 - 06:47 PM)

What type of vehicle does Boba Fett use for time travel? A Man-DeLorean.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 03:55 PM)

Admittedly, it's been a long time since I've been to a walk-in clinic, as I tend not to get sick (and the one time I do every 4-5 years, I prefer just riding it out at home), but the last time I went I'm pretty sure you could just show up, no appointment. It may be different in Quebec,though

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:36 PM)

One thing to note about health insurance in Germany is that we have a two-class system: mandatory health insurance is basically the economy class, while private health insurance is the business class.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:32 PM)

My local doctor is actually a shared office with several doctors where you will get randomly assigned to one of the doctors available that day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:30 PM)

Also, employers are required by law to cover part of their employees' health insurance fees, so I only have to pay my part.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 02:28 PM)

Basic examinations and sick notes (known as "work-inability certificates" in Germany) for the employer are covered by our health insurances by default.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 November 2019 - 12:02 PM)

Around here, we can go to a walk-in clinic whenever, but might have to wait in the queue until there's a doctor available, which can take hours on a busy day. And then hope our insurance will cover anything.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 November 2019 - 07:38 AM)

There actually are a good number of clinics around here: but the walk ins require an appointment (what?) and are only done once a week. IF you can get an appointment, you see a doctor usually within 40 minutes, but good luck getting the appointment.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

Depending on the day.

@  Nevermore : (14 November 2019 - 03:35 AM)

We have family doctors (called "house doctors") with regular office hours where you may need an hour or two of waiting time.

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 November 2019 - 12:50 AM)

Two weeks? That seems a little long; are there not a lot of walk-in clinics around you?

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 07:01 PM)

Does germany make it quick and easy to see a doctor too? Cause an emergency doctor visit can take two weeks out here, and an emergency ROOM visit can take 18-24 hours.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:43 PM)

(Good thing is, under German law, if you call in sick during your vacation and see a doctor immediately, you get to keep your vacation days.)

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:42 PM)

Too bad. My plans wee to do two more overtime hours before having my last day of vacation for the year on Friday. Oh well.

@  Nevermore : (13 November 2019 - 06:41 PM)

So I'm currently on medical leave for a particularly stupid reason: Burned my back with a hot-water bag while sleeping last night. Though the doctor said I'm hardly the first person to have this happen to them.

@  Patch : (13 November 2019 - 06:11 PM)

Just a particularly odious example of the 90s era of depicting transgender women as either the subject of crude humor, or "Jerry Springer" material.

@  Ashley : (13 November 2019 - 04:55 PM)

I think Ace Ventura legit contributed to me spending years in self denial. I will never be ok with Jim Carrey.

@  Benbot : (13 November 2019 - 01:22 PM)

I thought he since changed his tune.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (13 November 2019 - 12:51 PM)

Jim Carry Paladin?

@  Maximus Ambus : (13 November 2019 - 12:22 PM)

Don't doubt what he can do. Sonic the Hedgehog!

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 11:51 AM)

not giving a dime to a transphobic antivaxxer.

@  wonko the sane? : (13 November 2019 - 11:25 AM)

It'll be a terrible movie if jim carrey phones it in. Otherwise it should be decent.

@  Paladin : (13 November 2019 - 10:45 AM)

sonics' still gonna be a terrible movie but at least they whined loud enough to make him look passable for a 2-minute trailer. "yay."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:37 AM)

But of course to annoying people there's no such thing as different decisions made for different reasons, there is only "I like it so it's right" and "I don't like it so it's wrong."

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:35 AM)

Even if we pretend it's objective truth that they were both bad, then they were bad in very different ways.

@  ▲ndrusi : (13 November 2019 - 10:33 AM)

Sonic's previous movie design looked genuinely bad. The Transformers '07 designs just looked insufficiently like what certain loud and obnoxious parts of the fandom think Transformers are required to always look like.

@  Otaku : (13 November 2019 - 08:50 AM)

Um... Purple Monkey Dishwasher?

@  TheMightyMol... : (13 November 2019 - 08:25 AM)

Do we really need to have Every Movie Transformer Thread Ever in the Squawkbox?

@  Bass X0 : (13 November 2019 - 08:13 AM)

Sure it made money but that doesn’t mean it has appealing character designs. Lot of god awful fugly faces in the Transformers movies.

@  Otaku : (12 November 2019 - 08:25 PM)

@Liege My issue with Transformers (2007) were elements I thought were unnecessary.  I know it was supposed to just be a joke, but I didn't ever need to hear about "Sam's Happy Time". >.> Which, being in awe of the first "live action" TF-film, didn't even register until I'd already purchased and watched it on DVD a few times (after seeing it in theaters 3 times).

@  Liege : (12 November 2019 - 08:22 PM)

For all the Bayisms in the 07 movie, it was tempered by Spielberg as producer. Designs aside it was an enjoyable popcorn blockbuster about a boy and his first car who happens to be an alien from another planet. They sequels are just Bay going unchecked after he proved how much bank he could bring in.

I received a GoPro for Christmas, but havent taken the time to set it up. Should be fun to use while mountain biking, or tree climbing. Maybe this spring I will get on that.

Its fun to do video editing on the GoPro.  Im actually converting todays videos and getting ready to edit.  If I get it done soon enough Ill post it here.  Trying to do quick, shorter shots instead of recording the whole ride and then editing out huge chunks.

Fun mountain bike ride today with a guy I havent seen in 3 years now.  He is just now getting into the sport and we just happen to be in the same city.  

 

Here is video I made, to large to upload here. Its on my facebook which is all private, so not sure if this one will work. 

 

https://www.facebook...551062453919073

 

If not, here is Instagram.  Same video, ish.  In stead of being 2 min and some change its 54 seconds.

And if none of these work, let me know.  I was tempted to put it on YouTube anyway.  

 

Or dont watch it all.  This isnt communist china, you're free to do as you want.  lol

I got sick last night. Sore throat and feeling of fever, ugh. I don't want to take it easy but I think I have to :(

I'm at 142lbs but I went to my mom's and she loaded with with cereal and brownies, oh noooooOOOoooo...

Edit - on the tuna bit, yeah, protein. But I sorta didn't want to start lifting for muscle until I reached the 140lbs weight or lower.

Went for another MTB last night, wanted to try getting some action shots on the gopro where it actually records me biking, and not just a POV style.  I dont really like the way the video turned out so Im not going to link it, but its on my facebook and instagram if anybody really wants to follow the above links to them.  

 

The 2.14 mile run is the old route we used to do back in school after basic training was done.  I love running it.  So far Ive knocked about a full minute off of my 1st run since Ive started running it. 

 

My legs are feeling pretty smoked right now.  We are in the field today for training, so they wont get much rest today.  Tomorrow though.  No running.  No biking.  Driving home this weekend to see the wife and kids I think so they will get the weekend too, so screw it, maybe I will run tomorrow after class.  See how tired I am.

Alright, so... I caught another cold, and then my sister literally went crazy and I had to call 911 on her. I'mma try to get back to the routine as soon as I feel up to it, but I need a couple of full nights sleep first because right now everything is basically all hugged up.

I didn’t measure the distance. A lot of guys said 6+ miles for today’s training. But I had 10,000 steps before noon today. I’m up to 12,442 steps now. Been relaxing since we ended.

Sorry to hear about the family drama, that’s never a fun situation to be in. But, it will all work itself out one way or the other in the end and the world will keep spinning. So you should too, indoor bike or out. Exercise can be a great stress reliever.

It's only a great stress reliever when you can actually breath to do it. This hugging cold has me so damn congested I'm getting winded going up the stairs.

Been MIA since 2/20. Thought I'd recap my YTD through the end of Feb (while including this AM's weigh in).

 

Weight today: 212.8. 27.8 pounds to go! My low during February was 212.1.

Weight lifted: 215,166 pounds. Still on track for 1 million this year.

Move calories burned: 39,251

Water drank: 4,412 ounces

Rest days: 0 <-- boom!

Workout days in a row: 487

 

For my birthday, my parents got me a set of 35 pound dumbbells and a set of 15s. I now have 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 35s, plus a 12 pound weight best and 5/10/15 kettlebells. 

 

However, since my birthday I've had this really weird pulled muscle in my lower back (no idea why). I've really only had upper body days, with days of light mixed cardio or flexibility in-between. Hoping to get back to core and and lower body next week.

 

Miles: 199.05
Uppers: 12,385 + 155 + 140 + 175 = 12,855
