Drank a ton of red-bull,  these games still tire me out after about an hour.

How did we ever do those 36 hour sessions


Probably your gay hair

What happened to the "standard" length of a movie being considered as between - an hour and a half - and 2 hours?

I mean it still is, maybe closer to 2 hours but you rarely see films go over that "dreaded" 3 hour mark or even 2 1/2 hours, they really are only reserved for ambitious or large scale films.

Maybe it's because I am young but I really like long films, one of my favourite films is like 4 minutes under 4 hours and watched the entire thing in basically one sitting.

When I'm shopping for clothes online, don't get models that remind me of what I don't want to be, get models I want to look like. Unobtainable beauty that make me go, "Huh, if I get this shirt maybe I'll look like that."
My God, nothing discourages me more from purchasing a nice new shirt than seeing some fat bearded slob in glasses doing the Soy Face. I'm sorry, but everyone is not beautiful, and they shouldn't be encouraged. I'm sick of seeing fat middle-aged women in yoga pants and belly shirts. Tired of seeing fat hairy man tits spilling out the side of your sleeveless shirt. Have some respect for yourself, goodness.

The world is full of distortions,

No rock is objectively more beautiful than "Another Rock."

Perceptual differences are merely the boundaries of our limited comprehension and penchant for unsuccessful compartmentalization of the infinite.

Be happy you exist at all. Try to prolong that existence by eating m0-ar Veggies.

Overclocking is basically 1-2% max without exotic cooling.

This is a blessing in that you can get away with the cheapest possible motherboard.  It's a curse cuz now it's boring.

Mayyyybe Tp4 could use m0ar RGBee, buh who knows if that'll make the PC ne faster.

Even still, overlocking is usually beat by just purchasing the next CPU up the stack. Why overclock an AMD 5600 to near 5600X levels when you can just buy the 5600x which won't need to be overclocked, will run more efficient/cool since it's not being pushed passed it's default state. Overclocking used to be able to unlock double digit performance increases.

How much sugar was in your coffee and in the jerky and how much water did you drink?
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.

No sugar in the coffee or jerky at all, just a small amount in the oatmilk I use. I had some apple juice that had sugar from the fruit, and a glass of wine in the evening.
Not much water, I need to be better about hydration.

Bathroom scales can be imprecise. I find that I have to take it out of the bathroom onto a flatter floor, and then step on it multiple times before I get a stable reading that I can believe in.

Of course de/hydration and before/after bowel movement matter.

It's crazy that a 2mil house and a 4mil house aren't even that big.  The only large difference is actually just property tax.

I guess there's a slight difference in the amount of marble stuffs, but, maybe that's only down to taste.

But then comes the depression, I'll never be able to afford this.

Remember the 3 rules of real estate.

And I think that factors at the "micro" level, eg the qualities of the individual parcel of land and the siting of the building on the property can make enormous differences.

Also, people with school-age children place  HUGE  value on the schools that their children will attend and the population of children in their immediate surroundings, while childless people are mostly indifferent to those things, and possibly even think of them as negatives.

As a parent, my most recent home purchase was almost entirely with my kid's education in mind. Buying a home in a much more expensive area but close to well funded/newer schools. I could have spent less and bought a home 15-20 minutes out of town sitting on 5-10 acres but then my kid's wouldn't have local friends to play with or be in the same school district they are now. I very much pay a premium for the soil my house sits on. But in 10 years my kids will be graduated and I can finally enjoy country living.
