Da hell, Prom! That video had.. not one, not two, but three adverts before it started. Games.. like education, were much harder back in the day.

So.. I skipped Spring-cleaning and went straight to an Autumn deep-clean. Got some ideas for a bit of reno too. :-k

Two six man teams face off in a death match on the petrov oil rig. Kill streaks, field upgrades and specialist modes enabled.

Weapons of choice:

Customized RAM-7 with TAC capability. Excellent all around assault rifle. Low recoil without compromising range or damage.

Customized RO-9 combat shotgun. 'Dragon breath' buck shot explosive rounds, close quarters pump action with a modified barrel choke (tightening the pellet pattern).

Note: that is a black girl with an afro in the blue shirt. She's a critically important man in my team and I like to run her as a front gunner. Got a quick, feather like thumb on the controller. I'm much more heavy handed and couldn't beat her in a one-on-one.

Teams randomly spawn over the map, so you cant know where they are. You wanna work the traffic areas and learn where the hot spots are.... so the bosses know the maps.

Been researching how to build my own 'somewhat portable' solar system with an inkling to add a wind turbine eventually. I know some are against solar and wind, but if SHTF I'd like heat in the winter and cooling in the summer, to be able to see well at night, and continue to enjoy hot meals indefinitely. Should mention having access to entertainment would help too by way of tv/blurays and the 400+ songs I squeezed onto my phone. The system is starting out at around $700, but needs to be expanded by another $600 before it'll be beefy enough.

A very oppressive situation?

I like a bottle of wine, even at work (proper office work, that is), though we have no wine over there, only beer, which I'm not much of a fan of.

You must have become a recluse due to corona.

I don't mind working from home so as long the place I live in is a decent place to go out -- and by that I mean it's natural. You can sort of guess what I mean by that. And that pretty much describes where I live, or rather, where my apartment is located. The problem is that I am obliged to travel to a big city even though my job doesn't require being anywhere specific . . . so not only do I have unnecessary expenses (have to pay rent, which is not cheap, as well as everything else, which again isn't cheap, but twice as costly), but also, I have zero motivation to go out since the place is so goddamn ugly I am kind of surprised that people are fine with it. (I'm told America is even worse, so perhaps I should be grateful instead.)

i've been working from home since 2013 so nah corona changed nothing for me
except for some perks
now i get to cuss at people if they step too close to me at the checkout isle
and if I put the mask, a hat and sunglasses I can fly completely under the radar
it also made the USD to BRL rate go 1 to 5 so it's like i got a big raise for no reason
it's great


america is a big place
though big cities everywhere look alike and feel alike
like shit

Trying to fall asleep.. to this, but the latter/right half of the album, as the former
half ain’t as chilled-out as it.

I thought you were, at some point in the past, distant or close. Perhaps it's been a while and it is only just now that I realized that you're no longer a mod?

Prioritising, so that things get done.. otherwise they won’t. Two phone calls to make, an online form to fill in and submit, reading and replying to emails, and more Autumn cleaning and reno work.

Thanks Magnus.. LinkedIn is good for contacting CEOs, I hear ; )

Or CEO's contacting you.

I mostly use it as a discussion forum. Lots of strange species over there. Motivational speakers are my favorite.

Any recommendation, for a motivational speaker with the bedside manner of a very nice doctor?


I've just got back from the local mini-mart, and now every time I go there I think of the very tall young man who bought many packs of smoked salmon.. he obviously has a thing for salmon. We somehow managed to lock eyes, as I was waiting for a checkout person to validate my age and so was looking in his direction, for her.. he was wearing INTJ blue.

The end.

Been watching, and being entertained by, the talented male demographic on TikTok..

A good place for people to express themselves on, too.. instead of being stifled, by the dull and draining masses.. a very creative place.
