  1. After several encounters with my most recent enemy (electricity-eating fungi) I've decided to study the damn things and figure out how to eradicate them.

    They're not actively harmful, but colonies form in low-current circuits, and cause devices to stop working. Phone lines and tv remotes are the two places I most often find them in, and even though I fully clean the devices, after a while the fungi shows up again.

  3. @adiwan So they used VR and 3D printing to help seperate conjoined twins. You do VR and 3D printing... Are you pondering what I'm pondering? https://time.com/5627206/safa-marwa-ullah-conjoined-twins/

        • The VR game Trover saves the Universe by Justin Roiland is, just average. The controls are sometimes infuriating. To match parity with PSVR and one-camera Oculus Rift setups it makes me furious to rotate because when I look backwards my view is blocked by a chair and the view is darkened. The combat is as uninspiring as it gets.

          • So, I enjoyed "Stranger Things" season 3, and I think a 4 could work, or this could be a good ending. But I really, really don't want them to try to go forever. I've liked it too much so far to watch it suck for 3 years before it finally just peters out on an unfulfilling wet fart noise. And s3 was showing some of the issues with neverending longform, like more than enough moments of "Well this stupid thing only happened so the plot could exist" and forced drawn-out interpersonal drama based on comically improbable misunderstandings. Not enough to stop me, but it did pull me out of the narrative a bit. But there were far more high notes than low, and damnit they're all just so likable! I didn't feel like the 80s refernces were too forced, but a couple did drag. Overall, a solid B.

            • The classmate who tried to molest me is in my store right now, and it’s not an experience that was particularly traumatizing because luckily I can say he only “tried” to molest me, but it’s still weird. I gotta look at that guy and go “oh right, you tried to molest me”.

              • "I personally don’t actually care that much" - @mrmattimation ... raises eyebrow.

                If I were to lower my standard of things that irk me just a Weee-Little-Bit just 1 setting then I would be taking up a neigh permanent 20 out of 30 font page slots on this website. Meaning that everyone has a tresshold that makes something worth posting/dashing about. Which is the long way around to say "Yeah I actually do think you care"

                But whatever happens next. Try not to bottle it up if you know that somewhere in the future the bottle might explode. After all you already said it was YEARS ago.

              • @drinkingpony yeah, the threshold was “he showed up at my store”. I feel like regardless of whether or not it actually affected me mentally, seeing the guy who tried to sexually abuse me is at least a little bit noteworthy.

              • SITH TROOPERS !?! You are going to take something out of the old canon you made un-canon and pretty much make it look like someone dropped a Duck-Helmet Storm Trooper into the wrong vat of paint ?!?

                Go home Disney, you are drunk !

                That advice is coming from ME ! Someone with both a really positive deposition towards the hard stuff, and also someone who painted the first Ork ( W40K ) with the wrong primer causing him to look ruggid, badass, awesome, and of African descent.

                • @drinkingpony Oh, ehmm, by the way, skip to the 3 minute mark unless if you want the salty unrestrained super right 'funny' opinions of a sock-puppet that was intentionally made just to be all that.

                  Though if you want to go in knowing that, the more power to you. Mostly because... Lord of the Rings... Yeah Chuck Wendig went "That thing is bad for I can not read it T_T"

                • @drinkingpony As a consumer of the new canon (having all the comics that came after the switch) and having only glimpses of experience with the old canon I'm heavily biased. As far as I have gathered the old canon is guilty of several stupid things like clones of Palpatine and Luke and such that appears to be fan-fictiony as well.

                • @adiwan You forgot the clones of Luke named Luuke and Luuuke ( no really ).

                  But yeah, fair point. All movies have severe faults and cracks in them. However it took Disney only 2 mainline movies to break the fandom. The two biggest sides seem to be those who absolutely love it and defend it so hard till their mind seems to break ( warning, 2 hour podcast of someone whose mind seems to break defending the movie https://youtu.be/bXs0LXqK2SM ). Those who still come out with movies why it all sucked and why it is all going to hell. I am not even sure if that 'side' is actually truthfull when they shout 'Please make Brie Larson a Jedi, let it all die !' or not.

                  Meanwhile I like to see myself as in the middle and heavily in the minority.

                  Imagine a kid creating a beautiful sandcastle on a beach only to come back the next day to find out that there is now a squatter playing with 'your' sand castle. Surely you can share, right ? But part of me still goes "You know, this could have been better

              • Ghost Recon: Wildlands is one of the most unapologetically jingoistic games i’ve played in a while but damn if it isn’t fun to play with friends. It’s like a cherrytier Metal Gear Solid V that doesn’t work too good and has only one way of doing everything but the stealth is fun and stealthing around with three friends is fun.
