    1. @kirurakiru hey there!

      Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:36:42 UTC from web
      1. @northernnarwhal just got back from the field for 3 days and im exhausted beyond belief

        Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:37:38 UTC from web
        1. @kirurakiru Damn, sounds pretty tiring. I've just been rotating between school and work lately.

          Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:38:40 UTC from web
          1. @northernnarwhal shot 1300 rounds in 3 days, i shoot artillery.

            Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:40:27 UTC from web
            1. @kirurakiru Man, that's a lot of rounds. I don't even think I've held a gun before!

              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:41:43 UTC from web
              1. @northernnarwhal it;s not a held weapon its a cannon. here's a video

                Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:54:52 UTC from web
                1. @kirurakiru Oh wow, that's huge. Must get pretty loud though, eh?

                  Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:56:56 UTC from web
                  1. @northernnarwhal got hearing protection for that lol

                    Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:57:30 UTC from web
                    1. @kirurakiru I figured as much. A cannon like that could easily exceed 170 decibels, which can cause immediate noise-induced pain and permanent ear damage.

                      Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:00:22 UTC from web
                      1. @northernnarwhal most definitely thus why we wear hearing protecting.

                        Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:02:21 UTC from web
                        1. @kirurakiru I've started wearing hearing protection more often while drumming to help keep my hearing in check, if I go deaf my future job prospects will be awfully slim.

                          Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:10:16 UTC from web
                          1. @northernnarwhal very true, didnt know that you played an instrument.

                            Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:13:31 UTC from web
                            1. @kirurakiru Yeah, I'm a musician whose main instrument is the drums, though I also play piano and am learning guitar

                              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:17:45 UTC from web
                              1. @northernnarwhal that's pretty neat, you could make your own band lol

                                Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:18:58 UTC from web
                                1. @kirurakiru Potentially, yeah! When I'm done my schooling I'd technically be able to handle production too, given I had the money for studio time or to buy my own gear.

                                  Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:20:21 UTC from web
                                  1. @northernnarwhal would you and or be willing to do that someday?

                                    Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:21:46 UTC from web
                                    1. @kirurakiru Eh, I'm sure I'll be writing and playing music at least as a hobby in the future, though I wouldn't say it's a definite career plan. I'm more likely going to be freelancing with audio mixing/mastering and post-production.

                                      Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:24:46 UTC from web
                                      1. @northernnarwhal right you did tell me about this before if i remember right.

                                        Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:27:28 UTC from web
                                        1. @kirurakiru yeah but I don't expect people to necessarily remember so it's cool

                                          Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:29:11 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                                          1. @northernnarwhal fair enough, so what did you do today?

                                            Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:33:14 UTC from Mayonnaise
                                            1. @kirurakiru I had school for most of the day, then I got home and made myself some dinner and practiced guitar for a bit before taking a break to read. Recently I've just been watching some anime.

                                              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:44:39 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                                              1. @northernnarwhal ah what anime? sorry for late reply

                                                Saturday, 26-Sep-15 13:22:36 UTC from Mayonnaise
                                                1. @kirurakiru Late reply to your late reply as I just got home from work- recently I've just been watching through shows on my backlog since there haven't been a lot of recent anime that I've been interested in watching. Lately I've been watching through Boogiepop Phantom, which is a pretty interesting show. It's incredibly dark and grotesque but also very avant garde in its construction, it's honestly unlike anything I've ever seen before in anime and walks this odd line between non-linear art house and really unnerving horror.

                                                  Saturday, 26-Sep-15 20:32:22 UTC from MuSTArDroid
                                                  1. @northernnarwhal that's a very interesting name lol

                                                    Saturday, 26-Sep-15 23:11:05 UTC from web
                                                    1. @kirurakiru From what I know about the series of light novels that spawned the anime adaptation, the title "Boogiepop" came from the author wanting to reconcile fringe strangeness ("boogie" as in "boogieman/bogeyman") with accessibility ("pop/popular"), hence "Boogiepop". The "Phantom" part just comes from a character in the show.

                                                      Saturday, 26-Sep-15 23:52:01 UTC from web
            2. @kirurakiru I have only been shooting small arms.

              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:43:12 UTC from web
            3. @kirurakiru dude what size guns if I may ask?

              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:50:42 UTC from web
              1. @awlelwa 105 mm well those are the rounds, i'll send you a video of what i do...

                Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:54:08 UTC from web
                1. @kirurakiru Ah yes the trusty howitzer. How deaf did you get today?

                  Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:57:15 UTC from web
                  1. @awlelwa it's very loud, good thing that i have hearing protection. haha

                    Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:58:04 UTC from web
    2. @kirurakiru hey

    3. @kirurakiru Hi.

      Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:37:03 UTC from web
      1. @m14brony how are you?

        Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:37:56 UTC from web
        1. @kirurakiru Not too bad. My work day was longer than expected due to encountering an HVAC unit void of refrigerant (due to a leak), but it added to the overtime I got today. :)

          Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:43:00 UTC from web
          1. @m14brony where do you work at?

            Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:54:29 UTC from web
            1. @kirurakiru I work as an HVAC service technician for a mechanical contractor.

              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:56:00 UTC from web
              1. @m14brony what's a hvac?

                Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:56:56 UTC from web
                1. @kirurakiru Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC). It is also sometimes referred to HVAC/R (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning, and Refrigeration). It's a skilled trade.

                  Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:57:35 UTC from web
                  1. @m14brony ohh i got you. that's cool. i thought you were in the military for some reason.

                    Saturday, 26-Sep-15 02:59:56 UTC from web
                    1. @kirurakiru I don't have any military experience, but I am an avid shooter and collector of firearms. :)

                      Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:05:12 UTC from web
                      1. @m14brony your username says it all lol. what firearms do you own?

                        Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:06:11 UTC from web
                        1. @kirurakiru Quite a few. :D

                          Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:07:30 UTC from web
                          1. @m14brony like....?

                            Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:08:37 UTC from web
                  2. @m14brony I've actually worked a bit with some HVAC guys we have on retainer. Real impressive work they do, way over my head

                    Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:02:45 UTC from web
                    1. @zazzle It is nice that I got my foot in the door in the HVAC field, as while I have been using what I have learned in college, I have also encountered some things I never saw in school. I look forward to expanding on my knowledge over the coming decades. :)

                      Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:06:19 UTC from web
                      1. @m14brony funny how that works out. It's like you can never really know everything. We have a guy whose been an electrician for 20 years and is still learning new stuff all the time

                        Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:07:51 UTC from web
                        1. @zazzle Indeed. The HVAC industry has been changing due to the phase out of CFC/HCFC refrigerants (ozone depleting), increasing use of control boards and automated systems, etc.

                          Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:10:53 UTC from web
                          1. @m14brony Kind of like in automotive R134A is on its way out, as well as heavy weight motor oils.

                            Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:11:39 UTC from web
                            1. @awlelwa I wasn't aware of R-134a being on its way out in automotive, but it doesn't surprise me. I have no idea of its true, but a head HVAC technician once told me that R-404A (commonly used in supermarkets) may be on its way out in the not-too-distant future.

                              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:28:07 UTC from web
                          2. @m14brony I mean the whole DEVap trend has probably been pretty taxing I'd imagine. Certainly been a big deal for us.

                            Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:15:26 UTC from web
                            1. @zazzle Admittedly, I haven't encountered DEVap technology in the field. Then again, I am new to the field as well.

                              Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:24:10 UTC from web
                              1. @m14brony Fair enough. I don't do installation or repairs or anything but I do sell a lot

                                Saturday, 26-Sep-15 03:54:35 UTC from web
    4. @kirurakiru ay hello
