@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 04:50 AM)

Actually on the subject, I've hard a lot of people refer to a 2011 film called Contagion that they think is relevant.

@  Maximus Ambus : (05 April 2020 - 01:11 AM)

Ah well, I'll stick to the classic British sitcoms: One Foot in the Grave, Til Death Do Us Part and They Think It's All Over.

@  TM2-Megatron : (05 April 2020 - 12:53 AM)

There's always the original, cheesy as it is

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (05 April 2020 - 12:10 AM)

Dunno... Tonight one of the major networks showed a movie with plagues.. including that listening to their leader causes the first born to die. ;P So nah.. I think the Stand could work. :D

@  TM2-Megatron : (04 April 2020 - 09:18 PM)

That's probably the last thing anyone needs to see, at the moment. Maybe when we get to the end of June/beginning of July and we can venture back out, it might be possible to find some enjoyment in The Stand.

@  Maximus Ambus : (04 April 2020 - 02:08 PM)

I suppose the CBS adaptation of Stephen Kings The Stand will be delayed.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 12:41 PM)

It arrived! Yay!

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 11:25 AM)

Given how the virus lasts about 3-4 days on metals and plastics, it's about the only way to go about getting stuff right now. I ordered a monitor mount for my desk and the delivery has been pushed back twice already.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 11:04 AM)

He ordered it online, says it was to keep those delivery boys in business. I did the same a week ago with some Transformers Studio Series figures off Kapow. Don't know if it's wise or not considering.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 09:12 AM)

You'd be the first. Everyone else has either been frustrated cause the one they wanted was sold out (like during boxing week.) or rushing to replace something broken.

@  RYNO : (03 April 2020 - 08:53 AM)

I actually walked into a store the other day and just randomly decided to buy at 32inch TV. It was just a Vizio, and grabbed a Mounting Bracket for it. No duress. Just a spur of the moment wanted a TV for my master bedroom.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:31 AM)

Conversely: I've never met a person who wasn't buying a TV under duress... so... yeah.

@  wonko the sane? : (03 April 2020 - 07:20 AM)

I think I've met maybe two people other than myself who count cables before buying a TV.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (03 April 2020 - 05:33 AM)

Seriously.. HDMI splitters and switches are so bloody finicky, but most tvs don't have enough inputs.

@  Maximus Ambus : (03 April 2020 - 05:09 AM)

Just spent a hour trying to get my brothers new Samsung TV to read his Playstation and Blu Ray player only to find he was using a HDMI splitter.

@  Sabrblade : (01 April 2020 - 08:58 PM)

This morning, for one of my online classes, I had to give a positive oral presentation about a play that I hated having to watch. I went into it completely unprepared and just winged it. My professor LOVED my presentation and thought it was excellent. She believed every word I said and honestly thought that I enjoyed that miserable play. Best April Fools ever!

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was Leader Uno

@  Steevy Maximus : (30 March 2020 - 06:50 PM)

He was the OTHER Leader 1

@  TheMightyMol... : (30 March 2020 - 06:29 PM)

Or Sideways.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (30 March 2020 - 05:26 PM)

On the other hand, this is Armada we're talking about. It could have actually been Metroplex.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (28 March 2020 - 11:08 PM)

Baja Blast is back at retail!

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 03:47 PM)

Shame he wasn't around more. He seemed like such a jolly, happy soul.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 02:16 PM)

No, he was definitely Metroplex. You could tell because he was in Metroplex's distinctive red and green coloration.

@  Paladin : (27 March 2020 - 02:11 PM)

that was Leader-1. or possibly Jolt. maybe Grindor...

@  PlutoniumBoss : (27 March 2020 - 01:57 PM)

Metroplex was in Armada, in a flashback. He was the same size as everybody else. I thought that was the joke.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (27 March 2020 - 12:39 PM)

@Rodimus Supreme: Gah! You are right! How'd I get that mixed up? x.x;

@  TheMightyMol... : (27 March 2020 - 12:14 PM)

There is no Metroplex. Only Zuul.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:13 AM)

@Tm_Silverclaw: There is no Armada Metroplex, he was in Cybertron.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:12 AM)

And they'd be better off just retooling Metroplex and Fortress Maximus to be somewhat more accurate and changing/adding parts for interaction with later play gimmicks.

@  Rodimus Supreme : (27 March 2020 - 11:11 AM)

I honestly would prefer that for scale purposes.

@  Cyoti : (27 March 2020 - 11:07 AM)

They can redo all the CW combiners as Titan Class figures like Predaking/Devastator.

@  Dekafox : (27 March 2020 - 07:52 AM)

They could just redo Metroplex again too. Especially if it's going to be S3 based. They could also do another Primus to go with the coming Unicron.

Miles: 400.59 + 3 = 403.59
Uppers: 14,200
Lowers: 10,300
Core: 5,841

 

treadmill intervals last night.  jogged at 6 for 1 min, ran at 8 for a min for the first 20 min then walked until I got to 30 min.  

 

Went to lift weights, saw lots of people on the machines I wanted to use so I practiced some good social distancing and went to the DFAC instead.  weighing in later today for this weeks biggest loser.  Next Saturday is the final day.  I think Im down about 11 pounds overall, but I doubt that is going to be enough to win the $50 gift card, but we will see.  If anything its helped to pass the time. 

 

Ill also hit 250 miles since Ive been here.  The majority of that coming from 1 Feb (71 miles) till now (248.something).  So I might try to push and hit the 500 mile club since its looking like my stay here is going to be a bit longer.

Ran 1.5 miles yesterday and did legs.  Today I biked for 30 min then did upper.  Hit 250 miles today, still unsure if I want to push for 500 or not.

My first at home strength training workout in a long time. I have sets of 20, 30, & 40lbs dumbbells, a yoga ball, and a mat. Long ago this is what I use to do because I was too self conscious to do these kind of workouts at the gym (I just used the gym for cardio & swimming) So I'm trying to re-channel those routines. At this point i basically told myself I'm going to take an hour and do what I can/what I'm comfortable with with what I have available. I leaned towards arms, besides having the equipment for it I also knew I hadn't down those at the gym for a while so they were due! I also did some shoulders and core. I did a few super set routines: a set of core, a set of bicep, a set of tricep, then repeated 3x. I had 2 supersets like that that focused on arms and then a superset that did shoulders. And then I did some stretching and was done!

 

Miles: 412.18
Uppers: 14,380 + 180 = 14,560
Lowers: 10,540
Core: 5,901 + 90 = 5,991

If you go to Arnold's page on Instagram he posted some home workout routines he used to do that were all pretty much equipment free or using things like kitchen table chairs, couches or even books to do the workouts. Ive seen a lot of others posting what they are doing at home to stay in shape and to help get through the 2020 plauge.  Pretty cool they are using their status to actually help.

Decided to run a 10K today, because why not?  Did pretty good the first 4 miles, mile 5 was alright.  But mile 6...I was running out of gas.  

 

We got extended here at least 60 days as of now, so Im gonna go for the 500 mile club.  Have around 225 miles to go, so Ill be doing lots of biking to get higher numbers. 

 

I also think Im about to change up my routine. As part of social distancing measures only 50 people are allowed in the gym at once. Today was my off day, which is why I got the long run.  I think tomorrow Ill go at lunch and do upper body + abs.  Bike on my 2nd day of work. Lower body + abs on day 3, then back to my day off and a longer run.  Although it might be smarter to put legs tomorrow and upper body the day before the long run.

Had some old half rotten stumps sitting around the yard. Took turns swinging around an 8-pound maul (half axe, half sledgehammer) and pickaxe at one. Didn't take long to get tired from that. :D
