And for hug's sake, I hope that the new Fire Emblem's PC isn't one of the DLC

@  Sean Whitmore : (15 June 2019 - 04:11 PM)

Smash Bros could never touch a new franchise again, and I'd still have laundry lists of side characters and villains I'd love to see included.

@  MEDdMI : (14 June 2019 - 10:38 PM)

I would unironically love Tingle in Smash.

@  Paladin : (14 June 2019 - 02:06 PM)

they HAVE to put Travis Touchdown in at some point now, right???

@  TheMightyMol... : (14 June 2019 - 01:24 PM)

@  Locoman : (14 June 2019 - 12:36 PM)

When will we get Bluster Kong in Smash?

@  unluckiness : (14 June 2019 - 08:20 AM)

The last three DLC characters are Tingle, Charles Barkley and L Tetris block with Reverse L Tetris block as an Echo fighter.

@  Tm_Silverclaw : (14 June 2019 - 02:45 AM)

We really need Subzero or Scorpion in Smash. Violence aside, they are pretty big gaming icons as well.

As an open-minded heterosexual, I wouldn't mind seeing more of that.

@  Nevermore : (10 June 2019 - 05:29 AM)

Currently in the process of re-reading Kurt Busiek's Astro City. Big props for the issue featuring the "Dancing Master" and its portrayal of non-stereotypical gay characters.

@  TM2-Megatron : (10 June 2019 - 05:25 AM)

Don't phone charges often contain special rapid charge circuitry, though? The voltage might be higher too, given the selfie stick probably has a very basic battery.

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 11:28 PM)

Glad to be of assistance!

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 10:32 PM)

*checks selfie stick and phone charger* huh. perfect fit. thanks!

@  SHIELD Agent 47 : (09 June 2019 - 09:58 PM)

I would use the USB-to-AC adapter that came with my iPhone, though I gather you must have a different brand of cell phone.

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:42 PM)

In that case a generic adapter is probably your best bet, then. Keep in mind a lot of hotels now have plain USB outlets in rooms too, though; but I guess that's not guaranteed

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 05:31 PM)

yeah, i just need something small to plug into the wall. im not sure im taking my laptop on my trip later this year and i want a way to charge my stuff

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:04 PM)

They also have wall outlets with built-in USB in addition to the two regular plugs; I installed those around my place so I have USB ports everywhere

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:02 PM)

You might be able to get a generic adapter to use with it at Radio Shack if you know the appropriate voltages or whatever

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:01 PM)

It came with a USB cable with no AC adapter? A lot of lower priced electronics do that, presumably assuming that USB is pretty ubiquitous

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Yeah, must be, I guess.

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:59 PM)

maybe having bluetooth has something to do with it?

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:58 PM)

the one i got has an on/off button, and came with a usb to attach to my laptop to charge it. its this one https://www.walmart....ility/432985497

@  TM2-Megatron : (09 June 2019 - 04:51 PM)

Selfie sticks have power? I thought they were to just hold the phone away from you

@  Telly : (09 June 2019 - 04:44 PM)

need some technical help.how do i charge my selfie stick without using my laptop? is there some kind of portable charger? i know it sounds like a dumb question, but i dont know very much about this stuff

@  MEDdMI : (08 June 2019 - 06:58 PM)

Different songs or overdosing don't work for me. My brain can play multiple songs at once. Best to do something else to distract me.

@  Xellos : (08 June 2019 - 05:36 PM)

Still, the worst is having the last song I hear before going into work being stuck in my head all day.

@  TheMightyMol... : (08 June 2019 - 05:00 PM)

Get a different song stuck in your head too. Let them battle for supremacy. Only the strong survive.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 03:53 PM)

Keep listening to it over and over until you got the lyrics memorized. By that point, it will start to fade out of your system.

@  Nevermore : (08 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

I've discovered the easiest cure for having a song stuck in your head is overdosing to the point of fatigue.

@  Steevy Maximus : (08 June 2019 - 12:27 PM)

Jedi Fallen Order sure does look a LOT like a Souls style game with Star Wars flavoring

@  Kalidor : (07 June 2019 - 06:18 PM)

I have a hard time believing that you speaking at length and with great detail is something you wouldn't be good at. Glad you had fun.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:51 PM)

Funny thing is I wasn't nervous at all. Might have helped that I was able to speak freely due to having assembled my speech from a lot of smaller segments I had previously told to my colleagues on the shopfloor, with a few punchlines added.

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:49 PM)

Allegedly I did well. Lots of applause, and was told I was leagues beyond the guy who spoke before me (though that wasn't difficult, that guy was dry as a river on Mars).

@  Nevermore : (07 June 2019 - 02:48 PM)

So I volunteered to hold a small speech at our strike assembly today (lots of Amazon employees, plus some people from IKEA, Smyths toys and some other local retailers).

@  Maximus Ambus : (07 June 2019 - 01:17 PM)

Today Dolly the Sheep and Super Salmon, tomorrow Neo Sapiens. We're through the looking glass people.

And you want 197? Dont you think that might be to small? Im same height, when going through basic in 04 I was down to 205 and felt weak. Im 230 now and comfortable, but if I could get around 215 id be happy. Mostly its just losing the belly for me though. Anything over a 39" waist and I fail my pt test automatically.

Weight right now is about 230.

 

My immediate goal is to get back down to 199. Lowest I've ever been was 193 but getting below 200 would make me feel a lot better,

 

I was sick going into the new year but finally got over that and have made it through today without snacking or eating any fast food so here's to doing that every day for the next 3 months :)

Good job! Ive tried to eat pretty healthy today but its after dinner snacking thats getting me now, but this popcorn is amazing. Going to do the walk a min, run a min for 60 min tomorrow then some weights. Taking Muscle Pharms Shreded Matrix along with Rasberry Keytones. Just need to keep after it. Im pretty sure I am close to my gallon of water today. I need to get a jug and just fill it up every morning.

Well, I would still be over my BMI, but I would be more comfortable at that weight. Realistically though, anywhere between 200 and 220lbs would be great, but I would just like to get under 200 once.

hug BMI. Thats the dumbest thing there is IMO. EVERYBODY is overweight or underweight on that scale it seems. And im sorry if it seemed I was discouraging you in my earlier reply, that certainly was not my intent if it seemed that way. 195 and I might actually see my abs! Lol

Yeah, I normally don't care about the BMI issue, but work has been stressing getting employees more healthy, and that is the scale that they are using. :( And no, you weren't discouraging, because I know that for me, that weight isn't realistic in the sense that even if I could get to 199, I probably couldn't maintain it without starving myself. Still, I would like to see my abs once, just to make sure they are there. ;)

I'm shooting for 220 myself. My brother is between 180 and 200 (depends on the time of year.) and at his smallest he is literally skin and bones. We're not that tall, but we're very broad across the shoulders. Even at 200 he looks too skinny.

I work for the State of Alabama. They are mainly doing it to keep their insurance costs down. They have been going crazy about that stuff for the past few years.

Wonko, it might just be time to head to the gym. Plus, the scenery is great. God bless the inventor of yoga pants!

Do they offer any discounts to gyms or supplement stores like gnc? Any extra cash or days off? Or do they just tell you to get healthy?

I lost 80 pounds on my own last time. I can lose 15 on my own now. Only the counter is broken: I'll use a pedometer on my music box, or simply run on time and leg pain.

 

But yeah, I've done the gym thing before while I was in cegep, and it wasn't a bad experience. I simply cannot afford it though.

We get a "Discount" on our insurance. When Istarted it was part of our compensation since we wer paid a lot less at the state than the private sector. Then it started costing $50 a month, but you can get a "discount" if you don't smoke, and another if you pass the health screenings. They don't give us any gym deals or discounts though.

Leg pain from injury or leg pain from working out?

What gym are you going to? Is it a chain or a local place? I go to Las Vegas Athletic Club, 22 bucks a month and has everything that the largest 24 Hour Fitness has. I LOVED the 24 Hr in Denver, had everything, but it was 50 bucks a month.

Skipping the gym tonight. Had a last minute meeting at work and left about an hour and 15 min late. By the time I got home it would have been the same time as if I had made it out on time. Dog can only be locked up for so long. Have PT tomorrow so im planning on going in early and making up for today. Still took my pills and drank what felt like a gallon but im sure im still shy 8f the mark. Not sure whats for dinner yet, have some hamburger dethawing in the fridge, might make some burgers. Warm up rice with it.

No, I learned in cegep not to do that. Thankfully, the yoga part of that class was still doable, so I not only got some benefit, but didn't lose my credits.

Water weight or not, that's motivation :)

On being sick, yeah, better rest. Not just for you but other folks in the gym.

Ugh, was feeling down and ate two chocolate bars yesterday but it didn't really make me feel good (chocolate has what chemical that makes you happy?). Ate one today too. Should take a walk to get feelings up (walking releases endorphins? Is that the feel good chemical? Same as sunlight?). Still not working out.
