  2. Ha ha ha of course the library closes in five minutes as soon as I arrive. What's with closing early on weekends? Open late and let me watch cartoons, if you want a half-day. Who's waking up early on Saturday?

          • I'm barely prepared to cringe 45 minutes with the MLP episode of The Toys That Made Us. Any time "bronies" are mentioned it is hard for me not to cringe. Compulsively retracting all my muscles in disgust.

            • The plan is to eventually have every possible recurring setpiece modeled in a 3D space using shaders that flatten it out as much as possible and textures that make it look like an oil painting so that I never ever ever ever have to draw another background for the rest of my life.

                • I'm preparing my CNC router for a minor upgrade. I plan to attach a plastic canvas cover for the rails and the threaded rod such that the crap I cut doesn't land on them. It's not an expensive upgrade or a technical improvement but more an improvement for maintenance and convenience. I was cutting some clear plastic (polystyrene) and that stuff was magically drawn to the lubricated rails and threaded rod. I had to wipe everything off and lubricate again.

                • Well, the post office lost my package. And they made sure to remind me it wasn't insured. Because I should have to pay extra for you to be basically accountable for your core job? Contacted the merchant for replacement.

                    "Yeah, ehmm, Mr Ranger Solo sir, Could you please get this package of legal computer components to my friend in California ? Why no, I do not object to haveing it being transported in between the cocaine and MDMA."

                    P.S. I do not know any Chinese Smuggler names, I do know that the Solo Star Wars Movie was renamed to Ranger Solo in China.

                • By now it's a tradition to change the "Han shoots first" scene with each new release. I was once on the purist side of the fandom who wanted the unaltered scene but now I've grown out of that attitude and just watch the drama from the outside with no emotional investment.

                • I just had the new She-Ra explained to me by a die-hard fan of the old series

                  Essentially she thinks it is like taking a beloved franchise that she feels she has supported thoughout the years, by buying merch and all. Someone got their hands on that IP because essentially you can not 'make' a new IP work in the modern oversaturated world. Then added so many new borderline cringe modern 'themes' to it till it pretty much only resembled the beloved She-Ra only in name. I mean For Fox's Sake (I choose to believe she actually said 'For Fox's Sake') they put a first draft D&D character into the show for crying out loud.

                  Imagine your grandmother learned you how to make granny's apple pie, and then 20 years later she asks you to make her some apple pie just like how she used to like it. Only to have a conversation not even 5 seconds after gramma tasting it about "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU TOOK OUT THE ASBESTOS ?!?"

                  Strange woman, but made some sense.

                  I only know 1 person who likes new She-Ra.
