    Bought some new shorts from Old Navy in the same size as my jeans (also from them), they're tight and I can't tell if it's because I'm a hair too large for them or just general "new close tightness." Feeling uncertain, I did also order the next size up since none of the stores have them in stock, and of course the default address was parent's place that I moved from six months ago. So now I'll have to pick those up next weekend before any cookouts.

    Damn those states where you have desert climate, it's hell. It's been around 25-30 celsius in here for a week, but I don't complain... it's nice and warm for a change from winter when it can get around minus 25-30 here in southern Finland. Though we don't have air conditioning in a rented apartment, and it gets too hot for inside temperature.

    Which generated one first world problem, sort of. Our cats don't eat their wet food because it's temperature is not what they're used to, and it gets bad after sitting a while. Picky little bastards :shannon:

    Weight gain.

    Put on 15kg in the last 12 months because I was so stressed and unhappy, just a mixture of not eating when I should, and eating shit when I did. With the fibro, it's going to be hard as shit to actually exercise, so I have to hope I can lose it just by eating less.

    It's been nearly 30°C for a couple of weeks here already. I don't mind, I have AC anyway so it's nice and cool inside the house.

    My first world problem is that it's been nice and warm for a couple of weeks now, but now that my vacation is starting on Wednesday, the forecast is showing rain and temperatures below 20°C :( Probably gonna rain all summer...

    Stuck between two really cool guitars and can’t choose. Might have to buy both.

    I was cleaning my guitar and somehow bumped it, broke the pot apart and jammed the knob on so hard it broke when I pulled it off, then after I rewired it a couple days later, I don't have a working bridge pickup now.

    Either I have a bad solder somewhere, or I wired it wrong because I did it from memory. It was a couple days between when it took the old pot out and put the new one in. I've rewired it plenty of times trying out pickups, but I found a set I liked like 5-7 years ago, so I probably remembered wrong.

    I lost my pizza cutter and had to cut up a frozen pizza with a knife.

    I have gone down a rabbit hole of observing PlayStation vs Xbox fanboys. It's a trainwreck and I can't look away, I am just so damned fascinated.

    I feel sorry for anyone whose ego is tied up in a consumer electronic device produced by a megacorporation that is only interested in separating you your money and you feel some how superior to people who bought a slightly different consumer electronic device produced by a different megacorporation that is only interested in separating you your money.

    If that not a first world problem...

    Don’t even get me started on the ‘PC MASTER RACE’ guys. It’s fuckin video games. Don’t get me wrong, I play a lot of video games, but damn. There are things worth arguing about in life and this isn’t one of them.

    Hahahaha, totally agree dude. I have owned several competing consoles and I have never felt it gave me the license to use racial slurs, derogatory language or make wild claims about a stranger's mother and her alleged promiscuity.

    I make video games, and I'll be the first to say some people take them waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay too seriously. "It's just entertainment, folks."

    I'm trying to sleep and my neighbor is holding a driveway screening of Hamilton.

    With a projector and what appears to be a club-sized PA rig


    Fuuuuuuuck

    The thing with PC vs consoles is result of growing standards in graphics and frame rate. It really depends what kind of games you play, but in anything fast paced difference of 60Hz and 144Hz is a big jump in smoothness of game play. Jump from 144 to something even higher doesn't seem to be that much difference. Add to that some sort of synchronizing technology such as v-sync or g-sync.

    Playing with my four year old PS4 and 43" 1080p TV is totally sucky experience compared to what I can do with my PC. Low 30fps refresh rate, no sync technologies, terrible input lag and 1080x1920 pixels stretched to a 43" screen = blurry and stuttering experience. At least we have planned to get a new TV when the PS5 comes. Something with at least 120Hz, v-sync, and 4k resolution.
