@  wonko the sane? : (08 April 2020 - 08:42 AM)

It is. Thankfully, we don't use the thing too often. It was purchased to help take down one tree and spends about 362 days a year sitting in the shop.

@  Darkstream : (08 April 2020 - 08:23 AM)

Sounds tedious

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 06:25 PM)

grinding wheel on a dremel and a lot of patience.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 06:11 PM)

What do you use to sharpen it? I was debating buying one of those kits on Amazon

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 11:49 AM)

Wasn't the first time. I probably did it one of the times the chain jumped the blade, or when I was cleaning it or sharpening it.

@  Darkstream : (07 April 2020 - 11:38 AM)

Sounds like something I'd do. I always install things backwards first.

@  wonko the sane? : (07 April 2020 - 07:32 AM)

Not while I'm outside working with the chainsaw. If it's working fine: then I don't need it. If it's NOT working; I use hand tools cause there is a job that brought me out there. No time to read.

@  PlutoniumBoss : (07 April 2020 - 03:07 AM)

You can Google manuals these days.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 06:06 PM)

I can't. One: we don't know where dad hide the damn manual. Not that he read it either. And 2.) I'm congenitally incapable of reading it, being as I'm male.

@  TheMightyMol... : (06 April 2020 - 01:52 PM)

Lesson learned: RTFM.

@  wonko the sane? : (06 April 2020 - 11:45 AM)

It's time for todays lesson! Did you know there's a wrong way to install a chainsaw blade? I didn't. I thought the damn thing was just blunted, but nope. Backwards.

@  CORVUS : (05 April 2020 - 06:41 PM)

CONTAGION is on my current watchlist. I'm kicking it off with OUTBREAK, and I have a whole lineup of pandemic-based films. I treat this stuff as a fear-innoculant.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:52 PM)

My point is that of late, Taiwan's government executed lockdown procedures to great success. Vietnam has done similarly.

Didn't SARS just suddenly stop before it got very far?

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (05 April 2020 - 03:24 PM)

*raises eyebrows due to familial knowledge of SARS*

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:43 PM)

It was uncomfortably real in 2011, it's downright scary in relation to the current pandemic.

@  Steevy Maximus : (05 April 2020 - 01:42 PM)

It is, almost to an uncomfortable point.The virus portrayed in that film was FAR more aggressive and fatal than Coronavirus, but the sourcing and spread and impact hit REALLY close to home compared to what we're dealing with now

@  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.

@  Rycochet : (04 April 2020 - 11:26 AM)

Please remember that in these times of social distancing, we'll always be together however far it seems.

@  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

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

Well, Cas seems to bounce between regular and recurring. But yeah, I anticipate he's going to be a regular for next season
HIGHLIGHT to view:
given that Dean can't possibly last long in Purgatory without him, and definitely isn't getting out on his own.

Plus, let's face it, you don't drop an actor like Misha Collins unless you absolutely have to.

I'm just resurrecting the thread cuz I watched the new ep with witch cop Christian Campbell and his wily familiar. It feels like it could be a backdoor pilot or something. Is Supernatural wrapping up already? The season isn't that gripping and it's only now that there's a real arc with the three trials.

Why the sigh? I think the show is slowing down but it's still pretty good. The boys are getting older tho. And they really shouldn't have killed their grandfather. It would have been great if he lived in the present time, started a new Men of Letters chapter, maybe father more Winchesters, haha.

OTOH, it's pretty clear that Sam (if he survives) will be leading the new Men of Letters, while Dean (if he survives) will be leading/training the new generation of Hunters. It's about as close to a happy ending as the Winchesters are ever likely to get.

The smart thing to after season 5 would have been to make the search for god the central unifying theme of the show, since it hasn't had one since lucy got put back in his cage.

I also would have made Cas the villain for the entire 7th season. No reason to burn up the drama that could cause in like five seasons. Even if Misha could only be in a few eps, it would have worked if they used him better. After all Lucifer wasn't all over the place in season 5, or the yellow eyes demon. Main bad guys come and go during their seasons. And hell, the result could have been the same. Cas corrupted by the monsters inside of him, becoming evil, followed by the next season where he seeks redemption.

What a bust.

I only started following the series again with this season but I would have loved a season with evil possessed Castiel. His new role now is... ok but he needs to pop up more. I liked that scene where he did a random good deed by telling a mother of a constantly crying baby what was wrong with him.

Sam can't start the whole Men of Letters himself since there's no one to teach him the decree and stuff. Even his grandfather wasn't inducted. But Garth and Felicia Day should be brought along. So far, it looks like the two are hoarding all the resources for themselves and not helping others like Garth is as the new Bobby.

We almost gave up on it when our DVR missed the time travel episode because of a basketball game. My friend works on the show and assured me that the episode was important and really sets up the story arc for the rest of the series. Finally watched it last night and I'm glad we stuck with it...very intrigued to see what happens with the Men of Letters and the vault of cool supernatural stuff.

Your friend has an awesome job icon-fire.gif

The grandfather dying was a huge waste! He should have survived, darn it! He'd be another 'man out of touch with the world' like Castiel was and he was would have been a fountain of knowledge (or would be more if he was properly sworn in). And he died in an almost pathetic way! He was a sorcerer! He was shielded from possession without tattoos! Couldn't he have body shield spell or something. Man, the humor and drama potential of having another young Winchester around would have been awesome. He should have hooked up to have more kids to carry the name while Deam and Sam do their thing.

That cat scene was unexpected and hilarious! I felt they made a mistake with the cgi when Dean bonked his head, like there were suppose to be toon birds or stars flying around but weren't included in time.

Argh, that was exactly true for 816 Remember the Titans. Blergh! Filler though. Give me more trials and Castiel's evil heaven.

But c'mon, naturally, if you break the curse, you die. Stupid. They really should have thought about it for the kid. He just has to go to 'sleep' every night but he's IMMORTAL. No need to worry about disease, accidents and stuff. Stupid.

And Cas can't hear your prayers because you're in the supposed safest place in the world. No one can penetrate it, supposedly. I think. Maybe.

It's ironic. This is exactly why I would have to tell some actors/actresses that I WOULDN'T want to see them return in an episode of the show. Because with every episode they appear in, it's a chance for them to die.

I saw who 'comes back' next episode, and all I can think is. "Oh god, is this the episode? The one where they kill them?"

The latest episode, clip show, really bothered me.
I always thought the demons were just evil humans yet along comes this episode referring to a magical 'taint'. Some demon is 'cleansed' of it and is clueless as to why it ate it's hosts two children and laughed.
Stupid, stupid, stupid.
