I love the sound of breaking bones!  The accompanying cries of anguish, too.

So, that's a no-brainer.

I'd rather hear the sound of a 1990s dial-up modem than rap.

Oh wait, that's called dubstep, isn't it?

They are currently in the middle of another one. One thing I remember from my law enforcement courses is the most dangerous call is domestic disturbance so I'm avoiding political forum for now.

Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page. You know, dubstep really does kind of remind me of the old modems. Hmmmm.

Thought this was interesting. Brings up the question of what really happens when we die. 


I've always been fascinated by death but understandably afraid.

Some fun points:

Quote The Chainsaw was invented to widen the pelvis is a woman took too long during her labour.

Think about that, ladies, then go beat your husbands over the head with a chainsaw if they own one.


Quote
Imagine every star in the galaxy had a trillion planets orbiting it...and every planet had a trillion people on it, and every person had a trillion decks of cards, and shuffled them 1,000 times a second since the big bang, they'd only just recently be making decks that existed already.

The mathematical chances of a specific order of cards occurring each shuffle is:

1/80,658,175,170,943,878,571,660,636,856,403,766,975,289,505,440,883,277,824,000,000,000,000


So, forget synthesizing eggs from skin cells, forget curing cancer, forget turning coal into gold...if you want to feel like god, and create something that has never - even once - existed in the universe before...go shuffle a deck of cards.

I washed both vehicles this morning, darn heater out there is working flawlessly now, knock on wood.
Bright and sunny now but some snow is moving in tomorrow morning.
 
I'm a little annoyed with Am Fam, they want to send someone to our house for an inspection.
Great, when State Farm did this I got pissed and wouldn't let the guy on my roof.
Then, today I get this 2 page survey from Am Fam, how the hell can I grade your performance when we have never made a claim.  God, I despise insurance companies.

I see a cursor and a "watermark" of some dot com I can't make out. Almost looks like screen capture video.

^  The watermark is "www.fraps.com".

I don't see any dead pixel.  But if there is one, I hope it didn't suffer.

The faithful departed pixel is in the very top left corner.  If the drop down video title is down, then it covers it up.

It's red, so it must have died a pretty bloody and horrific death Cry

Its a cursor, I recognize the shape! The watermark is "fraps.com" I guess this a video that was recorded off a computer.

Oh! the red thing! that a red flashing "60" no clue what it means or what its for.

Ad already figured it out while I was making my post, but I blew it up to full screen and watched, and it's not a dead pixel - it's a quickly flashing number (most likely the FPS rate while the dude was recording it on fraps).  It mostly stays at 60, but drops to 59 and 58 a couple times toward the final few seconds.

Here it is expanded:



If that's what Jimbo was talking about and what I thought too, that's actually what that is. The other 2 things of course are the arrow cursor and fraps watermark.

So, there are no dead pixels after all! Clap   (goddamn talk about random thoughts/solved mysteries LOL )

I watched the vid on my little tablet so the cursor looked like a small white dot, similar to a dead pixel.

Guess this is a fitting thread for this. 


I want. I really, really want. Anyone want to go in on this? I think I have around a hundred bucks to spare... Maybe $1000. Cry. Plenty of apartments and real estate. Could even do some sort of zombie theme park...



How cool would it be? We could have a Rick lookalike as the sheriff. Or an evil guvnah... Shift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

^  My bro sent me that story.  I told him if it was mine, I'd have to change the name to Clearville or Morganville.  I'm sure you know why.

Interesting episode last night, huh?

Okay, maybe somebody can help me here.
There was a commercial that an old man was ogling, making comments about a daughters friend?
There is a new one out, I only saw it once and I don't have a clue.  Help!
