    • I'm back

      Vacations are great! I just got back from 11 days of escaping the Vegas heat. We did a week in Reno and finished in Santa Cruz, CA. The whole time I was wishing I had the Shadow to negotiate the curves and be out in the cool weather. But alas, I had to leave her in the garage, locked up like an inmate. It was so unfair. At least the weather stayed nice and Lake Tahoe was warm enough to swim in. Rafting down the Truckee River kicked some major ass as well.

    • Just a reminder...

      Tasers hurt.

      In case you are wondering, no I'm not stupid enough to let someone do this to me. I do, however, know the guy who was stupid enough to let his wife do it to him.

      Here's to you John E.! "Don't tase me bro!"

      Say hello to my new toy:

      seans113486ed1e8aa4c5.jpg

      It's a Honda Shadow Aero 750. 745cc SOHC 52-degree V-twin, shaft drive, head to toe candy red and chrome.

      Feel free to drool. Just don't ask to ride it.

    • Yeah, baby!

      Today's the day. I'm starting my motorcycle rider course tonight. By Monday, I'll be a licensed rider and daring to take the roads of Las Vegas on two wheels. It might be a gamble, but that's what Vegas is all about, right?

      Side note: I sent a letter to Gov. Jim Gibbons today because the moron turned down $1 billion to help relieve our budget deficit. Why? Because there was a catch: he would have to stop fighting to keep Yucca Mountain from becoming a nuclear repository. Wake up, Jimmy! It's going to happen whether you like it or not. Better to take the $1 bil a year and shut your trap.

    • Cars are expensive

      11 years ago

      seans113

      What a morning! I get up at the usual 3:00 AM, head out the door on time, and make my way down to my carpool's house. A mile from my driveway, I begin to hear wind noise in the car. This is odd because I didn't roll the window down (Las Vegas + summer = A/C all the time). Lo and behold, the rear left window had dropped about 4 inches. I try to close it and the window drops even further.

      Mitsubishi has a neat little deal for their power windows. Instead of a cam and worm gear, they have a "regulator" that consists of a rail, shuttle, and wire setup. It works like a minature elevator. In mine, the wire came off the spool that is driven by the motor that causes the window to raise and lower. Gravity took care of the rest and now my window won't close.

      Long story short, I'm out $80. Fortunately, I'm competent enough to replace it myself. Unfortunately, it means I had to pull off the door moulding and inevitably it will never go on right again. In the mean time, I had to find a way to keep the window closed. Thank God for power tools. I now have a 1/4 inch hole in the rail of the regulator and I put a nut and bolt through it. Perma-locked.

    • Can we have $10?

      11 years ago

      seans113

      No. You cannot have $10.

      My boss's boss's boss is coming up on 30 years with our company. in order to celebrate (read: kiss ass) they are purchasing a gift basket for him and asking everyone who wishes to donate $10 to the cause. Screw you. This guy makes twice what I do and you are asking me to put my hard-earned money to get this guy a gift basket?

      Side bar: what the hell is with the gift baskets to begin with? Gee, what I always wanted! Assorted fruit or cheese and sausages! Whoop-de-friggen-do. What's next, a gift colonoscopy?

      Back to my rant: So they want money from everyone at the plant for somebody who doesn't even work at this location. Yeah, so he used to work here and he wasn't a bad guy. The point is he is not here anymore and the people at the place where he works now are too cheap to get him something so we have to pick up the slack. Sorry, I need to use that $10 to buy a gallon and a half of gas to get to work so I can make half of what my bosses make. I guess the jerks with disposable income will have to get you your precious gift basket. Hope you don't choke on a mini brie.

    • A benefit to Obama supporters

      11 years ago

      seans113

      There seems to be a disproportionate amount of Barack Obama supporters on this site so I decided that it would be appropriate to give all these liberals a lesson on economics.

      Obama supports socialized medicine. This seems like a great benefit on the surface. Everyone getting equal healthcare and the cost is spread across all taxpayers. Nice, huh? Well I hate to burst your happy bubble but this is not practical. Let me tell you why.

      The government cannot control money well. The federal government accounts for almost 1/3 of gross spending in this country. Think about it. When is the last time you used a federal government program? If they account for so much of our country's spending, where is it going? A large chunk does go to national defense but the vast majority gets doled out to the many special interest groups that lobby in Washington.

      If we try and establish a national healthcare system, the special interests will get a hold of that money also and it won't go where it is needed. Doctors will have to settle for far less pay or choose to work elsewhere. Ask any Canadian who needs an MRI how long it takes to get a test. I promise you that it will be longer than 6 months. That will be miniscule compared to wait times in the US on socialized medicine.

      Obama promises change? Yeah, a change for the worse.

      Ron Paul '08!

      I have conquered the art of jabbing myself in the eye! I no longer get frustrated by the task and actually find it kinda enjoyable. Especially when the contact lens aligns itself and I can see clearly.

      Astigmatism and contacts do not get along very well. I have a very high degree of astigmatism and when I was a kid, the opto opta eye doctor told me that contacts would cost around $700 a pair. Thanks to medical advances, I can now get them for $240 a pair and insurance covers one half.

      These things are kinda cool. They have a little weight on the bottom that causes the lens to align itself so the astigmatism is corrected. There is a tiny line that marks the bottom so the lens will be aligned as soon as I put it in. The doctor told me to look for it before I put them in. Okay genius, I can't see without the contacts in so how am I supposed to see a stupid little line on a tiny lens?

      At least I get to pick out cool sunglasses now.

    • Whew doggie!

      I have had a very busy weekend. My wife insisted that I perform manual labor that involved more than picking up my Xbox controller. Somewhere it is written that a man must perform these duties on a regular basis or face the wrath of the gods of homeownership. Apparently it was my time.

      I put in over 50 feet of brick edging around my driveway and sidewalk. I did not do this because I thought it would look nice. I did not do this because I am some sort of sadist who enjoys pain in the back and legs. I did this because the neighbors on either side of my house put it around theirs. I was the odd man out on my block and, as such, was forced to comply with the majority or look like a dick.

      Yeah, it looks good but I should not be forced to improve my home just because the neighbors choose to. We should have to go to a vote. "All those who want to make Sean look like an ass say 'Aye'." Screw you, neighbors. I'm flipping them off with my blistered middle finger.

    • When did it get dull?

      11 years ago

      seans113

      I was driving to work today and, as usual, had to drive through the resort corridor on 15 south. As I passed the Stratosphere, I couldn't help but wonder what happened to the glitz and glamour of Las Vegas? I used to look on the city with awe but now it looks like a heaping clump of rapidly constructed garbage. The facades are so cheesy and the flashy lights are downright gaudy.

      Casinos are resorting to any gimick they can find to get people in the door. Once you get inside, you will quickly realize that all casinos are the same. Same machines. Same cocktail waitresses. Only the carpet is different.

      I wish Las Vegas would do something truly different. Give me a casino that looks like no other. Put attractions on the floor that take the attention away from the neon lights of the slot machines. Make it interesting for once.

      How good am I at avoiding the cops? Was a delivery driver for four years with only 1 ticket. The 1 was when I started, never again.

      Cheap is good, cheap gives more money to use on dates.

      If you have a funny joke, do it. I dont care about the quality, it's the gag that matters. I don't always put my best effort into every single panel of AHCS, because it's the joke that keeps people coming back every day.

      One guy asked if using photoshoped screenshots would be OK. It's not ideal but if the joke is solid, it'll get posted. Just don't be funnier than me or I'll bury you. smiley6.gif

      well..it really depends on you...

      I personally enjoy GHIII...but I also live by myself..and don't usually have a "band" coming over to play. From what I've seen of GH4..I think the drums will be better than the ones for Rock Band anyway.

      On GHIII after you unlock your songs you can play them on any difficulty in quickplay..I wouldn't think it would get as repetitive as RockBand.

      However if you have groups of people over at the same time Rock Band is the way to go (currently)

      That's my professional/personal opinion.
