    Spent the cash on Leawo Blue Ray ripper. So many options and actually works on those regional dvd and blue rays. I tried some of those free and $20 products, they all sucked and left watermarks or just didn't work with the DVD security.

    I want to buy things at guitar stores like I imagine they do in third world countries without the hassle of first world marketing. Don't fucking email for every other day for six weeks reminding me to survey and rate my purchase and the in store experience. Christ you fucking stores are more insecure and in need of positive affirmation than a 12 year old girl with a facebook account and body image issues. Sam Ash marketing.....Are you seriously that concerned about how my purchase of a generic $112 case went yesterday? It opens and closes on my epiphone les paul as intended. What do you intend to do with the info I provide? Guitar Center and Sweetwater don't keep emailing saying I've forgotten to comment on (fill in blank).....my purchase history proves I have not forgotten about you....I'm just not as obsessed with you as you are with me......

    D’yer Mak’er by Led Zeppelin came on the radio and ruined my day.

    That song is a war crime.

    Edit: I should point out that I am so free from real issues like starvation or roaming death squads that a shite song can ruin my day. Top Tier of First World Problems.

    My footy team is in the Grand Final, for the first time in 21 years, and it could be their first Grand Final win in 57 years.
    The damn game is being played in another state and I am stuck in lockdown and can't go.
    I guess I'll be watching the game, by myself, on the TV.

    oh it's some homemade shit, not storebought. Blend of ghost pepper, habanero and chipotle.

    I tried Melissa's Ghost pepper sauce recently and it was basically really bumped up buffalo sauce. Tasted good but the burn was short lived

    I can't decide between getting an older xiphos in red green chameleon, or a guild x88.

    well in terms of weirdness, the guild is far more uncommon, so it wins that :lol:

    I made a bet with a co-worker a couple months back, either June or maybe mid-July, for whoever could run 40 miles first/the most miles by the end of the month would be the winner; we agreed and said September would be the month we race, since we were already too close to another month to spring this on either of ourselves.

    Now we're mid-September, and I've run for the past 4 days in a row (currently at 15 miles), and I since I don't trust myself to not miss a day by accident (already slept one day before this current streak started) that means I have to do 4 miles a day, every day until the end of the month just to make sure I win. Will that put me well above the needed 4 miles? Yes, but knowing that for an hour and fifteen minutes of every night for the rest of the month is being lost for this god damn best is annoying.

    We didn't even decide on a prize either, but I think a 15-mile cushion should be enough to solidify a prize; plus, I was severely depressed a week ago, and was at 0 miles when he was bragging about being maybe 11 or so in? So I came back from a 19-mile deficit as of ...Friday or maybe Thursday, to 15 miles as of yesterday, so I can catch him quick enough but it's beating him that's a different story.

    Complained about having to run every day to win a bet, proceeded to run my best 4 miles pace I have all year after doing so (8:15 for those who are curious)

    Fucking aye
