  1. *Finally* getting my fucking bachelor's degree this December. Fucking 35 years old. I've wasted so much of my time, fuck. Job hunting in January, hooo boy, that sounds great.
  2. Doing the "Red Markets" game with @s.smigiel and some of my other internet friends a week from tomorrow! I decided on RM instead of Eclipse Phase, since RM is more "down to Earth" (literally!) My precis, if anyone is curious: https://boomzilla.io/rm/intro/
  3. I tried drawing some living birds this morning (went to the waterfront), but the little bastards wouldn't stand still and let me get close enough to draw. Rude! Only got a gull from a distance, and part of a pigeon
  4. Fuckit. I'm doing "Eclipse Phase". Here's my wiki with the elevator pitch: https://boomzilla.io/wiki/index.php/Main_Page It can be a kinda weird/hard-to-wrap-your-mind-around setting in some ways, but I love it. I'm mostly hitting up friends on Facebook, but @s.smigiel (or anyone else interested), feel free to hit me up here, or wherever else on the net
  5. Did the 2nd series of rallies in the base-level historic with the old Mini Cooper again. Got 9th/30 overall this time! (AI at 70%).
  6. I'm actually able to keep the headset on for over an hour, and still feel fine (I guess a lot of people get vertigo from VRs ) You've tried VR, correct? For DIRT in particular? IIRC you were saying something about being less affected from VR vertigo due to your eye(s) EDIT: I just remembered the random, little touch of, as I was doing one of the stages in the old Mini Cooper, I passed a competitor on the side of the road. I *assume* what happened was the AI that driving the car in the slot before me crashed, and the game faithfully reflected this, just as you'd see on
  7. One of my brothers has a VR setup, so I got DIRT Rally 2.0. Oh, wow, it's amazing. Completed a series of stages in an old Mini Cooper. Got 28th of 30th (only beat the two AIs who had car damage) at "70%" AI difficulty. Gotta git gud, still Oh, damn, it takes so much concentration/focus, too, because paying attention to the co-driver pace notes. CC: @heavyboots
  8. almost certain I've posted this before, but """ the Seattle Aquarium can't tell whether this giant Pacific octopus is a boy or a girl. If Buster is a boy, he'll have a special tentacle (the third to the right, going clockwise, from the front of its mantle) that is both an arm and a dick. And, since the suction cups on octopuses* also function as taste buds, his special tentacle will be an arm and a dick and a tongue—making all octopus sex fisting and intercourse and cunnilingus, simultaneously.

  9. I legit thought the Kraken was an ancient Greek thing, but it's Scandinavian. I think I was confusing that with Scylla and Charybdis from the Odyssey. Also, I know various Sword and Sandals Hollywood takes on old Greek stuff definitely *have* inserted Krakens into Greek legends.
  10. ^^^I wonder how they will resolve the potential "mascot space" conflict with Al the Octopus there
  11. Seattle's getting a cephalopod-themed NHL team FWIW, Detroit has us beat by many decades in terms of "tentacles on ice"
  12. Found a mother cat with four kittens under the porch. Ended up trapping them, keeping them in my room for a day, and getting them to a lady who does TNR. They'll either end up with friends of hers, or in shelters. Hoping the little fuzzballs get great homes. I kinda miss the babies already. The mother cat is super-sweet, too, and TBH I am half-assedly thinking of adopting her. (I'm away from my home in Everett, in Olympia, now, so away from Smokey)
