#1393607 11:60

I thought that was a feat over a decade ago....

I picked 11:60 as a tattoo symbol because I assumed it would be here for a long time. I called it! Still on page 1!

#1393601 Fascism and reconciliation in Canada.

Posted by armor on 09 January 2019 - 05:14 PM

Are many of you south of the 49th familiar with native affairs in Canada? Does anyone remember the Oka crisis?

Right now different branches of government have been officially apologizing for abducting children in the 60's and putting them boarding schools that have fatality rates like concentration camps.

At the same time stuff like this is going down.

Given that they're actually not part of Canada but another nation that has held continuous occupation since the ice age, if a cop fires the first shot and they return fire and start killing cops and when all the dust settles the U.N. is going to have to side withe the indigenous peoples, it sure is a good thing that people are more interested in peace!

 

This is riotworthy!, good thing we handle shit like Canadians...


Edit: and for those who don't know me so well, I'm grew up in a backwoods corporate sacrifice zone at the 56th parrallel, that was barely more than a fur trade post prior to WW2.

#1393279 Is there a VHS equivalent to the cassette with a cord on it

Posted by armor on 04 January 2019 - 07:02 PM

 

 

 

Why was I just thinking about this the other day?

 

Aren't audio tapes coming back into style? I wonder if there's a reverse tape adapter that connects to your bluetooth audio system. Full circle

 

Tapes are dumb. I had to live with formats that ate my recordings when I was a youngling. No more, hipsters!

 

 

I agree. Plus you had to guess where the next song was if you wanted to fast forward to it.

Just use your phone and a bluetooth connection when in the car. 

 

 

I'm not saying tapes aren't dumb, just something I've noticed as far as bandwagon nostalgia goes. The fascination with mixtapes has only grown since the release of the Guardians of the Galaxy movie. I can't stand how tape film gets worn so easily. And I couldn't tell you how many tapes of mine have been eaten by tape decks.

 

If your tape gets worn it's time to format a new mixtape!
Tapes were way superior to CDs for use in the car, and if you can't commit to listening to the album and need to skip around in the songs when you should be focused on driving safely you need to reevaluate your priorities. Nobody wants to end up in the hospital because they needed to shuffle songs or eat sunflower seeds or pick your nose or whatever.


But you guys, tape sounds so warm, don't you want your pixels and polygons to look warm, too?

Gotta have that HI FI audio, gotta have that constant background sound of eggs sizzling in an adjacent room in 180 gram high fidelity!

#1393278 What happened to you at work today

Posted by armor on 04 January 2019 - 06:57 PM

Fuck my boss. He's trying to guilt trip me and others into working long hours. Apparently you have to be an entrepreneur to understand putting in long hours. Fuck that. I worked long, long hours back when I was a game tester. I know about that shit and it's not healthy. Fucker thinks it's a badge of honor to miss out on family events just to work. And then tries to threaten the in house development team. Fuck you. Fire us and go full out source if you're so concerned about results and money.

Set up an anonymous email address and send him this. Do it anonymously because people can get defensive when you challenge their beliefs, and you may not want to end up singled out for challenging their alleged authority.

Studies Show Working Overtime is Basically Pointless.

I find that being over tired makes me screw up more and incur costs in my life that negate my overtime, unless I do my second job as a motorcycle courier which is actually pretty fun to get paid to be biker ninja, I manage to deliver soup and coffee without spilling, fuck overtime in the factory, I'm probably the only motorcycle courier in Western Canada right now (besides the Hells Angels obvs.)

#1393258 Depression And Other Social Issues

Posted by armor on 04 January 2019 - 03:48 PM

You can get a hold of me too I just recovered my old skype account armorthehomeless, I'm sorry I haven't made time to talk earlier but my previous experience with international phone calls has been a financial kick in the teeth and I feel like life is becoming a financial concentration camp.

I remember a time when I was unemployed and extraordinarily depressed and I was thinking about making a permanent bad decision but instead of doing that I got a bicycle from the hardware store and rode to Portland to hang out with you, it was a pivotal time in my life and you and Alex and Mark being there for me made it possible. I bounced from one of my lowest points, an irrationally depressed state, thanks to your camaraderie and hospitality. Life has pitched me some scenarios since then that are country song sad, but I have never felt Elliot Smith song sad again since then because I held on even when giving up seemed to make sense. 

I don't know what else to say right now.

#1393238 Is there a VHS equivalent to the cassette with a cord on it

Posted by armor on 04 January 2019 - 02:28 PM

This is definitely a far out idea, I would reckon that no such has ever existed if not for technical reasons for economic ones. I don't know enough to say it is possible or not.


Do you know that all those cassette adapters are made in the same factory and they get branded differently?
I've owned several and scrapped a few of friends as well. They always made too much clicking and whirring noises, 
get this
you take them apart and there is clockwork inside.
It does nothing, take it out and the noise stops, the flip tape feature still works.

Somewhere there is a factory where people are installing totally superfluous clockwork in your cassette adapters and nobody has the nerve to say anything about it.
Or maybe nobody involved in the production has a cassette tape deck. Sad and bizarre.

Neither amazon nor Netflix will sell me Venture Bros season 7 because I am Canadian.

Take control of your diets like literally do experiments withholding or bingeing on categories of food, you'd be surprised at what can cause problems, I have had negative reactions to a number of what are considered to be "health" foods.

When your red blood cells get crenulated (shrunken and wrinkeled) they stack onto each other and block your capillaries and can't transmit oxygen.

Maybe lecithin is bad for me. A vegan high protein diet can be extremely high in lecithin.

I have a compound microscope at home and some days I'm panting after going up and down two flights of stairs, and my blood cells are all stacked up.

Doctors don't give a shit about this. I had a spirochette infection and I told 3 different doctors and all 3 said get on prozac,
Not a godamn one of them was like "oh so you're a certified pathologist of non-human organisms? or how can you see something microns in size unless you have a home microscope."

Yeah, cryptic infections and cryptic dietary problems and arrogant MDs..... good luck everyone!

#1389651 Depression And Other Social Issues

Posted by armor on 06 October 2018 - 01:16 AM

Recently I have been suffering from bouts of irrational depression and anxiety, it was just like what happened to me a year ago.

I think it was due to a bowel infection called Blastocystosis, which I got diagnosed for other complications not mental ones but both times antibiotics cleared it up and I feel like my mind has correspondingly cleared too, like night and day difference.

Sometimes life sucks because your circumstances suck, but sometimes life sucks because parasites are shitting neurotoxics metabolic waste into your bloodstream....

So take care of that meat suit you live in and if your employers and doctors think you just need to take some immodium and harden the fuck up you ignore that shit.

Cognitive behavioural therapies and mindful self talk and riding bikes are still good calls though.

#1389637 Donald Trump Is Your New President.

Posted by armor on 05 October 2018 - 04:35 PM

Why is everything always framed in an oppositional fashion? Why is a public service a versus situation? I think this is a toxic framework.
The job of government shouldn't be to undo the damage of the last government and set forth the changes that the next government will work against like some sort of pendulum.

I prefer startropics.nsf to startropics.nes, it's probably why I still find this place relatable.

So how about that movie starring Ryan Gosling in which he has a fake girlfriend, he solves her mobility issue with a piece of technology, his mental stability is questioned, and there is a climatic scene in the water?

I really enjoyed it. Now I want to see the original, but I dunno which version...
Gotcha.
