Good to see you again Jesse! Hard to believe I think I joined OFPR around like 15 years ago. I bet I'm not too far away in age from when you joined. I told my wife the other day that we need to make a living will so that if I'm a vegetable, they keep the machines going so my pension checks won't stop after I retired....a long time from now.

Nice. Something I've explained before and also how dimming our incandescent bulbs don't necessarily decrease power either because the load is about the same regardless.

Been putting in hours at work too. When I almost transferred back in December, I've gotten a total of 3 raises already including one promotion. So not a lot of time for much lately. I started building my boys some gaming computers that are way better than mine and as soon as my RMA comes back next week, they'll both be up and running. They're starting to get into gaming and stuff and want to play stuff with me.
I'm starting working on getting stuff together for my wood workshop and I'm going to automate this freaking house because lights seem to be on all day in rooms people spent 2 seconds in too.

Black tea is fine. Dump a bunch of sugar in it as you boil it and you'll have southern sweet tea.
If you like really sweet, 1 cup of sugar per gallon
If you like kind of sweet, 3/4 cup of sugar per gallon
If you have never had sweet tea before but it sounds good, 1/4 cup of sugar per gallon
If you want sweet tea without diabetes, you can make an Arnold Palmer - Black Tea and Lemonade with a little sugar
For manual southern sweet tea, just fill a pot of water, in a standard pot, with tea bags in it. Bring it to a boil. Pour it into your pitcher and then pour the sugar. Mix the sugar as you add water until you get to your gallon. If you use 3 tea bags, then before you heat it (or you can low heat it I guess), let it sit for 15 minutes. If you are in a hurry, add another tea bag.
There's some automatic ones but you'll want to set the steeping to max for 3 bags generally. I usually go with 4 at max anyway.
You cannot use fake sugar and the tea must be hot when you stir the sugar or else it'll just be black tea and get super sweet on the bottom.
I've been making my own sweet tea for about 30 years.

Ha good thinking. Starting them off right. Do you still play cs?
Nah no CS for me. I barely play anything at all anymore. I work a lot of hours and then the family wants to do stuff. So you know, one of those grown-ups that don't have time to game. Until I kick the kids out of my house when I think they won't die in the streets. Then I'll game it up like Oldman/Jessie did.

Active? I wouldn't say active. Also, welcome back Hypnotics! Times have changed for me. Both my sons' birthdays are up next month and I'll be building them (sub $500 w. monnitor) gaming PCs and showing them how to build them.

I liked it too. Funny and mostly real feeling. It is as if a lot of the character details and normalities are heavily inspired by his own life and probably the other writers. The arcs/subjects also seem either like real experience or it is a commentary about something.
Anyway, I think it strikes a balance between being funny without always going for low hanging fruit. It is refreshing to see a sitcom with characters that resonate with the reality of everyday life.

Luke Cage. I am definitely enjoying it.
I agree. I really liked it a lot. I was watching the recolor (the first I've ever seen) of the Night of the Living Dead. Most of the movie still feels the same. The graveyard scene at the beginning does feel a little gloomier. When the zombies are eating though it looks a bit silly now though still pretty disgusting. They did a good job with the recolor though it was blurry in places. House on Haunted Hill's recolor I'm watching doesn't seem to have the blurry issue so it was probably to do with the source material I suppose.

Yeah, lots of that stuff can be explained but not through stuff in the movie. I had a number of complaints like Captain Boomerang not being enough of a joke character and them not really explaining Slipknot's appearance (which makes his death seem completely random if you don't get the reference). Overall the issue is that Suicide Squad is a really weird concept and it needs more explanation than it was given in this movie.
So what you are saying is that if maybe they stuck to the source material closer it would have been a better movie? I think that requires the writers, producers and director to actually read them first, so what do you expect?

Man I'm tired of Hollywood rebooting like the movie franchises are Windows ME.

I don't understand why the judge went on and on with him. That whole mess is crazy. I do think that his public defender probably wasn't really doing anything meaningful if the entirety of discovery was the indictment for murder.

Sorry for the reminder! It is a pretty good game. Sort of an arcadey survival game with interesting parkour.
