Subsequent GTD reflections

Game Time Decision
Latest posts by Game Time Decision (see all)

Welcome back to the comment of the week feature post ramblings. Hope you are staying warm and busy.  We had ourselves another crazy week here.  Monday we talked about flags and ice cube trays.  Tuesday had the return of TTITOT.  Litre started off Wednesday with Snaxx and then Rush died.  Thursday opened with the scam of the week and how the drake, not that drake, the other drake, was used to take dumb people’s money from them.  I’m getting into the battlebots now with Seniors great write ups.  And as usual we started to talk about drinks on Thursday night.  Drinks are really in any thread on any day, duh.  We had our first offseason draft with sandwiches, and the opening talk about what’s a sandwich or not.  Sharky came with another drink ( yay0, but still have no clue what falernum is.  Lessor footy got us up early Saturday morning and then curling happened in the afternoon, thanks BC Dick.  Oh and lots of music in the open thread that night, if you want to look back.  Yeah right brought another Sunday gravy post and it’s going to make be try out the French bread.  I’ve made the buns and the flat bread pizza a few times so going to add the bread to the list.  I’ve got a bread maker, but it doesn’t really have a nice crust, so will try out the bread soon.  And I totally get what he means about doing a recipe a few times.  The first few batches of buns I made, while still good, left lots of room for improvement.

As a reminder, this post will cover comments made up to and through the Saturday Night Open Thread. Sunday comments stand alone and Monday comments will go on the next week’s post.

Without further ado, here are the comments of the week.

Here’s a fun drinking game you can play if you find yourself driving around Los Angeles.

Set an alarm for 30 minutes and start driving on the L.A. freeways. Tune the radio to 101.1 FM. This is “K-Earth 101” which is the oldies station. It used to play Elvis and The Beatles but now the 90s is oldies.

Keep a big bottle of 80+ proof booze between your legs, and take a big gulp from it anytime one of the following songs plays within the 30 minute period:

“Girls Just Want to Have Fun” – Cyndi Lauper
“Come on Eileen” – Dexy’s Midnight Runners
“The Promise” – When in Rome
“Africa” – Toto
“Tainted Love” – Soft Cell

This drinking contest is rigged however and you will be hammered and put in jail with Mel Gibson after you crash into the ocean because these are the only five songs that K-Earth 101 ever plays.

Weekend goals:
–make some progress on de-cluttering my apartment. Like, I really don’t need to keep remote controls for TVs I don’t own anymore. The gag gift from a Christmas party ten years ago should probably go. The treadmill that broke two years ago is just taking up space.
— speaking of exercise, I should probably try to get a hike in
— cooking and drinking

That’s already an ambitious schedule by my standards.

This is the first weekend of my life that Rush Limbaugh will be dead for. It’s so nice!

I bet his funeral will be today or tomorrow. I hope everyone who attends it gets coronavirus!

Atlético has created less chances than a drunk Mel Gibson at an Anti-Defamation League mixer.

Bayern up 3-0 in 1st half of Shempions League game.

Lazio’s chances of winning appear to be similar to Tiger Woods joining the F1 circuit.

Horatio Cornblower

Tiger plunging in the rankings for next week’s Mock Draft “Athletes You’d Like To Go For A Ride With”

SonOfSpam

Also plunging? His vehicle.

Horatio Cornblower

This coverage is getting pretty funny. They started by talking about Tiger being a great athlete and the strides he was making in his comeback, and that this may have been a two-car accident. Now they’ve made it pretty clear it was a one-car accident and they are, ever so slowly, looking at the length of the accident scene and the damages within and coming to the realization that Woods really fucked up.

Mind you, I like Woods as an athlete, and I certainly don’t despise him like I did Rush, but if he was driving under the influence, (and it’s really hard to imagine how a one-car accident happens like this without a bit of help), this will be at least the third time he’s driven under the influence, and I’m not really full of sympathy after three such instances. Especially when you’ve got more money than God, and can easily afford a driver, or at least an Uber black.

bk109

He was either drunk, drugged outta his skull or speeding like a madman… or a combination of any/all of the above, which are all a danger to himself and more importantly – others, so… He’s fucked, only thing ambiguous at this point is how big the shaft he’s about to take 😀

SonOfSpam

“He tried to reach the 405 on the fly, really should’ve laid up on Ventura.”

bk109

Unrelated – I found a really old hard drive of mine from when I was in high school and freshman in unit full of questionable pirated content … sooooo should I explode it, kill it with fire (thermite to be precise) or just shred it?

Horatio Cornblower

I always thought you just ran a magnet over it, but I’m a moron.

bk109

That only really works reliably with like floppy disks, for hard drives you can go with multiple overwrite cycles to make sure shit isn’t recoverable… that said, a hammer or a drill works fine too (in fact let that be a PSA – if you’re ever throwing away drives – Britt Reid the fuck outta them, because you’d be surprised how easy is to recover data even from certain encrypted drives)…

That said, I need something a bit more flashy, because noone must know that I used to voluntarily watch One Tree Hill (among other crap)
Edit: In case anyone is tut-tutting about this senseless waste, the drive was on its last legs before I even put it in the hard drive enclosure and at this point SMART and the weird noises it’s making point towards imminent failure 😀

Drill a hole straight through the drive.

I’m about to do that with three old drives before I recycle them.

bk109

That’s my usualy MO at work (we’ve got a cordless hilti just for that, lol), for personal use .. I use a hammer on the platters themselves, but only after I’ve yanked out the magnets from the RW heads (they are really good for notes and magnetizing tools)

Hard drive? Glory hole? YOU DECIDE.

What’s a *glory hole?

Last edited 12 days ago by bk109
SonOfSpam

A glory hole that hasn’t been properly sanded?

bk109

It was a typo, also… my question still stands (even though there’s this //MASTER CAUTION// light burning in my brain for some reason)

SonOfSpam

Next time you’re in a pub, ask if the men’s room features a glory hole. If not, leave immediately as the place is not classy.

bk109

Why do I suspect that won’t happen (going to the pub… #ThanksRona ) ? Also, I guess I’m gonna fire up the questionable content laptop (nothing’s ever retained after a restart and the thing itself communicates with the internet via a random exit point not even on the same continent as me) to google ^ that, ’cause the //Master Alarm// light in my brain just kicked in as well 😀

Brick Meathook

Go to the train station and ask the information desk where the glory hole is so that you can “contribute in Christ’s name.” Dress as a priest.

bk109

“Train station” … what am I? A member of the proletariat?

bk109

Also, “Ah, that’s what a glory hole is”… given the genuinely horrible shit(including stuff that I personally called the Gardai for) I’ve seen at work… I’m surprisingly non-plussed… Also,I thought those were called cock/fuck holes, hence why I didn’t make the connection

bk109

By the way, if the drives are still viable (and preferably are 2.5” ex-laptop drives), you can get some really cheap (but decent) cases for them and reuse them for data backup (ie photos and the like) or other non-critical work. Same goes for mSATA and m2 SSDs for that matter

Unfortunately, working in IT has given me a decidedly (un)healthy appreciation for little it takes to pierce the veil of privacy in our day and age… as someone who decided to use my mom’s work e-mail as a spambox noticed (after he told me to fuck off after I politely asked him to stop)…You’d be surprised how easy you can make someone see the light when you systematically change every password for every service he uses (including apple) and start cancelling bank cards, deleting social media … and ordering 1000$’s worth of double-sided glow in the dark dildos to his place of work 😀

LemonJello

Yeah, but what did you do to get back at him?

bk109

As I said, cancelling bank cards, nuking his Steam/Origin/Battle.Net accounts, deleting his social accounts, remote-wiping his mobile phone and laptop, the dildos.. wifey persuaded me from doing a quick scattershot of dick pics (though tbh,I wasn’t sure how to source those online) to his entire address book….
Basically, went just short of just pumping his computer full of “encrypted kidde … stuff” (junk data, encrypted repeatedly… but labelled “properly”) or donating some cash to known terrorist fronts (we’ve got a running list of those at work to monitor if someone’s financing those assholes)

LemonJello

I think the Steam/Origin/Battle accounts stuff was uncalled for. Everything else, good to go.

bk109

Shouldn’t have been outright insulting to myself or my mom, lol (I have this weird berserk button where if someone messes with my family, I tend to go on a bit of a scorched earth thing)

Plus, if he had access to any of the two disposable e-mail accounts ( guerrillamail.com), he could’ve totally done that, after all – I did properly log in, before migrating everything elsewhere… I even got a 2FA challenge on my mom’s e-mail from Origin too confirming the changes XD)

So… any bets on BAC and drug cocktail in his system?

Horatio Cornblower

Looking at the accident scene I’ll take the over.

bk109

Same, given that he’s a rich celeb in LA… at this point I’d be more surprised that it’s just a mishap than if he was on every drug known to man… and with a trunkfull of dead she-male hookers

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

At 7:12 in the morning? I’m guessing no more than 0.2 or 0.3 BRs.

bk109

That’s when they responded to the incident, who knows how long he was pinned in there… also 7AM is about right for sodding off into the sunrise after a questionable one night stand, but not nearly late enough to have the “better partying via chemistry” part of the festivities to leave his system 😀

Horatio Cornblower

Have to figure he has an OnStar type system that alerts emergency services of an accident. Assuming it wasn’t destroyed in this accident, because that car is fucked up.

He’d probably have been better served with an ignition lock.

LemonJello

And better tyres – you’d be surprised how many people in high-performance cars cheap out on the bloody things, which lead to “hilarious” results, ie – a couple of cars ago (an Audi S6..with extras), I got totalled at a stop sign by an asshole in a Vantage that slid hard on the snowy road (despite driving around the speed limit) 😀

Horatio Cornblower

New report is that he was golfing with David Spade this morning, so again, I will take the over.

Apparently he sliced another drive into the rough.

Elin strikes again!

Horatio Cornblower

Looking at the accident scene (MSNBC has completely dropped the Senate investigations, because priorities), he seems to have somehow lost control on a slight curve, crossed two lanes, jumped the median while hitting a tree on said median, then kept going over two lanes of oncoming traffic before his car rolled a significant distance up a hill on the wrong side of the road.

Of course, I’m not sure exactly how it happened, but I do enough about accident reconstruction that I can state with reasonable certainty that he was not doing the speed limit.

LemonJello

I missed the total of young children he hit in the course of his “single motor vehicle accident.”

Re: EIB Rush

I listen to Dave Ramsey and, probably because he’s a southerner, Dave is a fan of Rush. When he was diagnosed with cancer months back, I recall Dave doing a little tribute to the guy who paved the way for talk radio (whoopie) and his little sidekick for the day just jerking off what a PERFORMER Rush was and, you know “regardless if you agree with all of his opinions” (as we now say about domestic terrorist thought leaders) everyone has to admit to Rush’s contributions to the radio world.

Now, separately, each day (I think) Dave does like a scripture of the day thing where he’ll give a bible quote as well as a kind of modern day take of the statement — for example, the Bible says, “don’t steal” and then like, Mother Teresa says, “we cannot take what it not ours for it hurts the person from which we took.” or whatever). I don’t really pay much attention to anything but the callers so it caught my attention yesterday when, in honor of Rush’s losing to cancer like a fat fucking addict whose too weak to even keep alive, there was only a Rush quote and no corresponding Bible quote.

There is, literally, no agreement to be found between Rush Limbaugh and the Christian Gospel. Not that this will get in the way of evangelicals from claiming their version of hate is in line with the teachings of Jesus but I figured I would just share this story with you. Now, let’s get back to fucking cartoon rabbits!

1) Rush Limbaugh was cancer personified so it’s fitting that it overtook him.
n) Dave Ramsey is a tool
&) The only (ONLY) downside to Limbaugh’s death is that I’ve seen a lot of ‘holy shit Rush was terrible’ takes, and then I get mad, and then I realize they’re not talking about my beloved Canadian prog rock trio, and then it’s okay but it makes for an uncomfortable few seconds.

Gumbygirl

I know you don’t want to hear this, but Rush was a good band who could have been a GREAT band if they never let Geddy sing.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

> There is, literally, no agreement to be found between Rush Limbaugh and the Christian Gospel.

I find it very hard to believe they weren’t able to find a bible passage from Leviticus saying it was okay to fuck children and pairing that with Rush describing one of his “vacations” to Haiti or Thailand or some other pedophile tourism destination.

Rikki-Tikki-Deadly

Like this one!

And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, Avenge the children of Israel of the Midianites … And they warred against the Midianites, as the LORD commanded Moses; and they slew all the males … And the children of Israel took all the women of Midian captives, and their little ones … And Moses was wroth with the officers … And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive? … Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him. But all the women children, that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves. Numbers 31:1-18
