That crack on the forklift. EEEEEK.

Your tool box is amazing. Those things get really, really expensive. I've just now begun my tool collection. I have a couple of power drills. Having a kid, I'm putting together more and more things, and I needed to borrow power drills more and more. It's nice to finally have a few tools of my own.

I'll have to upload a pic of my work - though it's a little less fun to look at than yours

What are some dragon themed movies everyone likes?

IMO it's hard to beat How To Train Your Dragon but maybe I'm forgetting something classic (I probably am)

Sheesh lonewolf. Is air conditioning/swamp coolers not a prevelant down in Australia?

Our rooms generally run 20 degrees cooler than outside on a hot day with a swamp. ACs are expensive but a good one will keep the temp steady. Our place is swamp with a couple of room ACs

Just wondering what people preferred  

One of my favorite tequillas: Cazadores

Sounds lovely

Today is also a cooler day here. 95F - or 35C. The downside is lots of humidity today because of thunderstorms, and the potential for more fires.

There's been a fairly large fire around where I live. Cal Fire Info it's nearly ran it's course, so here's to hoping the thunderstorms don't spark another one.

Posted In: Ugliest Queen Ever?

The queen here... sheesh. I wonder if she's the ugliest queen ever. I guess her full name is Brahne Raza Alexandros XVI. Also if you're viewing this via the forums. I'm talking about Final Fantasy IX. Going to fix the ambiguity with another feature

Honestly, I thought the production quality would be a little higher considering we have Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Scarlett Johansson. I believe I remember Levitt being executive producer though - so maybe one of his first major films. Otherwise, I think it's a fine movie. Definitely not for everyone; but it does address some issues that are facing kids growing up today.

I SURE DID. I can't wait for season two. While Gundam stuff isn't always my favorite, this was done pretty well, and I love the world of Sidonia. It's a little Battlestar Galactica in a way.

Eventually I'm looking at getting a new computer, and when I do I'm going to try and do some sci fi 4x games. 

I'm REALLY looking forward to Civilization Beyond Earth - and will probably end up purchasing that regardless of a new machine or not since I'm pretty sure I can run it decently.

Honorable mention: Gnomoria!!! This is one of my favorite indie games. A little community management game, and super fun.

V Energy Drink. I've never seen one of those! I'll have to keep an eye out. It reminds me of our Monster energy drinks.

Rockstar has new type of energy drink that includes 'hydration' - and believe it or not - I think it helps. Energy drinks make me crash like nobodies business. The energy + hydration kind don't have as bad as a negative side effect.

I just noticed I typoed March as Mach. woo. 

Still chugging along through Final Fantasy IX. Fun game, though I do wish there was a version with upgrade graphics.

Posted In: ICE CREAM

At least with what I am familiar with, there are pecans in most.

Speaking of ice cream - I just had some Coffee Coffee Buzz buzz buzz from Ben & Jerrys. I think I found a new all time favorite

I'm just a BIT jealous. OK... a LOT. Monday it's going to hit 113 again. 

By DavidWest 3 years ago ago

I It's funny. I know I did not like coffee too much at first, but now it's hard to imagine a time when I wasn't a fan.

Part of that is probably the semi-addicting nature of it :p

Well I appreciate an answer Lol. Just ask my wife - sometimes I talk whether someone is listening or not
