Is BWTF down?

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:05 PM)

The music, if you'd even call it that, adds to the creepy atmosphere. Apparently it was recorded using sounds created in a real nuclear power plant of the same type as Chernobyl.

@  Nevermore : (15 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

In case you haven't seen it yet, I highly recommend the HBO mini-series "Chernobyl", which is about, well, you know. It's very intense and not for the faint-heartet. I'd say it's more scary than any horror flick, because (despite some artistic liberties taken with the behavior of some of the characters, and the timeline for some events), it's eerily real.

@  Sabrblade : (15 December 2019 - 10:51 AM)

Hey, at least you baked a cake in the bathroom. Not many can attest to that. :p

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 05:51 PM)

Nope. Forgot entirely, had to make another trip.

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 December 2019 - 04:04 PM)

Well, did you get water?

@  wonko the sane? : (14 December 2019 - 01:56 PM)

Went to the bathroom, shaved, baked a cake... wait, I only got up to get some water...

@  unluckiness : (14 December 2019 - 09:01 AM)

That's a common misconception. You see compared to the first run, it's a new mold.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (14 December 2019 - 03:27 AM)

Wouldn't that just add packaging authenticity? :D

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (14 December 2019 - 01:44 AM)

I read a anecdote of someone recently receiving a Glacialord with mold because apparently online stores' warehouses have been sitting on Fansproject products like that for years.

Unlike many of his peers, Morton diesn't seem to have gone out of his way to try and take every drug going so he's aged remarkably well.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:39 AM)

Doesn't seem to have been a market for it, which is too bad, because it perfectly does what it sets out to do.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Just opened it and suddenly I'm 9 years old again.

@  Donocropolis : (13 December 2019 - 11:38 AM)

Bought myself Fansproject Glacialord for my birthday during their Black Friday sale.

Morten Harket of A-ha might have aged 35 years on the outside, but his voice is still pretty much the same as it was in 1984. That's some great training and exercise for you.

@  wonko the sane? : (12 December 2019 - 06:59 PM)

Depends entirely on how badly you cooked them. What?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 05:33 PM)

Cheddar can do just about anything.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

Cream cheese has to be on a bagel or crackers.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:31 PM)

(for example: I like Swiss cheese on sandwiches, but find it merely tolerable by itself)

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 05:30 PM)

I mean are you eating it by itself? With crackers? On a sandwich?

@  TheMightyMol... : (12 December 2019 - 04:48 PM)

I would ask, but I'd rather not know.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (12 December 2019 - 03:38 PM)

With my mouth, usually.

@  RichardT1977 : (12 December 2019 - 08:48 AM)

Depends on how you're eating it.

What's your favorite cheese? I'm not sure, but it's hard to beat muenster.

Man I wish IDW could do a season 2.5 with a few writers like Michael Charles Hill or Donald F Glut or Paul Davids involved.

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 04:33 PM)

They were looking for Skids, but the animators forgot he existed again.

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 02:58 PM)

He regrouped with Omega Supreme, the Dinobots, Skyfire and the Protectobots.

@  Benbot : (11 December 2019 - 08:20 AM)

Did he get infected with the rest of the Autobots or did he smartly remain off-planet?

@  TheMightyMol... : (11 December 2019 - 05:38 AM)

He really just went to the beach for a couple of days, then called it in. Who's gonna follow up on it?

@  Maximus Ambus : (11 December 2019 - 05:05 AM)

Anyone really believe Cosmos searched far enough for more ingredient for Corrostop?

@  Nevermore : (11 December 2019 - 03:48 AM)

Oh, we are pretty good at "forgetting" about that. Insisting on sending people home on their overtime, THEN suddenly rushing to do the "backlog" stuff when it's really overdue.

@  wonko the sane? : (10 December 2019 - 05:43 PM)

I've yet to find an organization which didn't have a backlog of "stuff" that needs to be done, but isn't important enough to put on the schedule proper.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 December 2019 - 05:01 PM)

I'm sure most good/bad (depending on your POV) bosses would be able to find something for the worker to do, in most cases, even if it's spending 8 hours pretending to push a broom around

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (10 December 2019 - 04:39 PM)

Still better than American jobs. x.x;

@  NotVeryKnightly : (10 December 2019 - 11:10 AM)

I'm pretty sure you've already mentioned this before. Especially that last one.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:05 AM)

That can be fun if you're strong-willed enough. "Hey, you want to go home? Overtime reduction, there's nothing to do..." - "Nah, not today. I want to work."

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:04 AM)

This applies to the field of work as well. Meaning, your boss orders you to show up for a full shift, you show up on time and are absolutely willing to work, and then your boss realizes he has no work for you, your boss has to pay you for a full shift even if you don't work at all.

@  Nevermore : (10 December 2019 - 11:03 AM)

Fun fact: German law has a concept named "default in acceptance", which postulates that if there is a "service for payment" contract, the party that should provide the service correctly offers their due service, and the party that should pay fails to accept the service within due time, the second party still has to pay the first party even if there was no service delivered.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:54 PM)

If it's seasonal affective disorder, check with your doc about vitamin D supplements.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:46 PM)

That's what I was thinking too, It's the christmas rush and if that's not stressful enough the cold weather can also impact mental health.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 12:41 PM)

Might be a stupid question given the comment, BUT: have you done anything outside the ordinary lately? Might just be a stress reaction.

@  Maximus Ambus : (08 December 2019 - 12:29 PM)

I've experienced sleep paralysis with ghostly images and similar things in the past and can snap out of it through moving my fingers. I've definitely hallucinated before and members of both sides of the family have had similar experience, some suffered forms of mental instability in two cases schizophrenia.

@  wonko the sane? : (08 December 2019 - 10:47 AM)

So... either a hallucination or night terrors. Are you prone to this kind of thing?

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:55 PM)

It kept repeating until I sat up.

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 December 2019 - 11:54 PM)

I've been up since three and when sheepish I was hallucinating something knocking twice against my bedroom door.

@  TheMightyMol... : (07 December 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Then repaint Apeface and Snapdragon as Transmetal Optimus Primal and Megatron. It's crazy enough to work.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 December 2019 - 05:32 PM)

What are some games that you sold for whatever reason (you really needed the money, you were bored with them) but later you regretted selling it so you bought it again?

When my Gamecubes memory card became corrupted, there were a bunch of games that I was like "well, that was fun, but I have no heart to play through all that again." So I sold off a bunch of my Gamecube games.

One of them was "Skies of Arcadia." I absolutely loved that game and was sorry I sold it off. So years later I rebought it from Gamestop (and boy oh boy did I ever have to hunt for it). Thing is, after I bought it back, I never played it again. It's just sitting there on my shelf.

Kind of the same thing happened with my PS3. The system bricked and I had to get it repaired. Once it was repaired, I had to format the hard drive. So there went all my save data. Again, heart broken and not feeling like going through all of that again, I sold off a bunch of games.

One was Elder Scrolls: Oblivion. I had Skyrim (and later bought it on PS4 and Switch). Why would I need Oblivion? But then time passed and I reeeeeally wanted to play Oblivion again. So I bought it off Amazon.

Another one was Kingdoms of Amalur. At first I was like, well it was a fun game, but I have Skyrim, I don't really need another game like it. But as time passed (and Ellen from Outside Xtra kept talking about it), I came to really miss Kingdoms of Amalur. Well, just a couple days ago, I found a whole bunch of copies at Disc Replay for $5. Hell yeah I bought it back! I know what I'm going to be doing for the foreseeable future.

Seriously, $5! I feel like I practically stole it!

How about a system? I sold and bought back no less then 4 Gamecubes

 

When the Cube launched I got a purple one when I got dissapointed with the line up of games trickeling out for it I sold it

When Mario Sunshine finally came out I bought a black one

When I was completely disappointed in Sunshine I sold it

When Soul Cal 2 came out with Link I bought another black one

 

Thats the only ones I can remember the reasons why in the end I ended up with a black one and about 15 games and a GBA player

I've only ever re purchased games when I'd sold there console as well. Had RE4 and REmake for the cube, and later purchased them digital.

The snes classic has a number of games I owned as a kid.

Probably a few other digital ones.
I finally got rid of that big white box.

That definitely counts. I only ever rebought the Gamecube because my first one's disc player stopped working. My first one was a platinum colored one. My second one was purple. Now if I feel like playing a Gamecube game I just use my Wii.

Nah! That's just double dipping. I do that all the time. You don't even wanna know how many copies I have (or have had) of: Zelda, Ocarina of time, Metroid, Final Fantasy VII, Dragon Quest I, Super Mario 1, Super Mario 2, Super Mario 3...

Dear heavens, I need a life!

I've sold games for older consoles because I bought them on Steam. Does that count?

I haven't bought them back, but I rather regret letting my wife sell my PS2 and the collection of games there-in. I had a small but rocking list (.hack trilogy, Final Fantasy 7-X2, Xenosaga, R.A.D. - Robot Alchemic Drive, Silent Hill 2).

 

But being honest with myself, I doubt I'd ever revisit any of them.

As far as games go I had very little regrets in selling games off

 

I have even sold internet gems like SNES Crono Trigger and Arc the Lad collection and Sega Musha

Only one I can think of that I sold was Totally Rad for the NES.

 

It's not the best game, but it's quirky enough that I began to regret selling it, so I decided to buy it back. The exact same copy from the store I sold it to.

 

Only other games I can think of that I re-purchased for the same system were games that I didn't sell, but were damaged or stolen.
