Somehow I've ended up watching reaction videos to the Troom Troom Youtube channel, all of them saying "Is Troom Troom okay", and I'm like...yeah? Are they okay???

This is more like a soap opera drama with women who are complete trigger-happy harpies that thirst for blood over the most minor inconvenience against them than a "lifehack/prank" channel.


And the hacks that they do have are either really inconvenient (coffee cup binoculars for "stealth").

Yes, I'd like to present my boyfriend and Powder each with "Finding a Way to Keep Me Entertained Between TMNT Issues" Awards.

First to the boyfriend for getting me Portal 2 so I could play co-op while I was in Ohio (and only did story mode a long time later). And second to Powder for watching me lose my mind amid my playthroughs and realizing the depth of the lore, and suggesting some fan games games. Of which I absolutely loved one of them. (Gave up on one immediately, haven't been able to try the next yet, waiting for a sale)

Spoiler:
Also, thanks to that person on tumblr who did this properly for me



Well, now I've found the Meet the Cores shorts, and it makes me wish I had the artistic skill and manpower to do Utrom stuff similar to that. "Interviews at TCRI" or something like that....

Apparently, drinking hydrogen-rich water helps reduce stress and pain. (It also helps activate anti-aging effects.)

Can someone verify this?

Oh, definitely marketing.



Never get anything that outright states what it claims to do. Especially anti-aging. That's how they get you.

Isn't ALL water "hydrogen-rich" anyway? It's like half of the molecular makeup of it!

Sounds like a nice way to charge extra for bottled water

Just finding a way to sell to the ignorant masses.

Hydrogen... check. Supposed anti-aging? Sure... Since getting enough fluids is best for the body and good for the skin and the look of it. I mean, I guess it's not technically lying to people, just making the truth sound more scientific and more promising than it is.

Anti-stress and pain... I suppose it depends on the root cause.

What cheaper way is there to create a business than to bottle up a natural product you don't even have to tamper with (other than purity factors) and just pitch it well in your advertising. lol

It's kind of the opposite end of getting people to sign a petition for banning "dihydrogen monoxide"/"hydroxyl acid"

Kept off and on hearing a sound I had a feeling was a mouse. I figured maybe there was one somewhere in the little hallway at the top of the attic steps near where I'm sitting. Eventually heard movement behind me and turned around... Darn thing, a rather young one, just sitting there behind me like it's no big deal. Too young and stupid to remain hidden.

Cute little thing. Trying to make me feel bad setting those traps in the attic, but this nonsense needs to stop.

This one was lucky it was simply caught (and didn't take too long) and turned loose outside by a brush pile. I hope far enough that it won't come back, but god only knows...

Had some spooky goings on last night, oddly enough. Kept seeing something small and dark passing next to me between the coffee table and couch out of the cornee of my eye, when both cats were nowhere nearby. Every time I looked, I saw nothing, but it would appear again a few minutes later. We've had little shadows in the apartment before, and then tonight my small plastic Jack-O-lantern kept lighting up on its own, when neither of us had switched it on. Must be because it's that time of year....

I just can not take this use of "NPC" in the real world seriously. People seem to think this is a good insult, but come on... it's just laughable. Imagine trying to use some very Turtles-specific thing as an insult toward part of the general public, expecting people outside the fanbase to agree to be insulted by it. They'd be correct in laughing at us, and even more-so at those on "our side" that join in on using the term but have no clue what it actually means.

Although given that I'm seeing it used by some of the more hateful, politically-motivated trollish types elsewhere online, I'm not minding being freely handed a reason to laugh at them and maybe knock them down a peg.

It's great and all that society has embraced "geek culture" to a point, but come on, there is a limit... lol

debated about bringing this one up, but something rather odd i noticed....
was listening to a rob interview recently somewhere. one line came across rather odd.

The comment was basically 'the original series is pure capitalism, I get that. and some would even argue it went on way longer than it should have'

I've never heard him talk about the original show like that before. But, he was there to promote the NEW series. one no one was really asking for, right after a rather well received reboot finished. to me, it sounded like marketing suggestion talk...and being at a higher level of director, it also means a new way to having to promote things at the corporate level. He had to mention the ethnicity of the voice actors in another interview, and he didn't sound too happy about having to point out something so pointless either.

just rang kind of odd to me.

Kind of love this card. Only one of my stores had it (BJ's which I can't shop at), and just one. Glad someone bought it, but I'm sorta sad it's gone.

Ah well, too pricey for me anyhow. Still that cloud face though... lol

Oh good, so it will no longer just be those of us with small jobs that people like to threaten with being replaced someday by robots.

It's basically everywhere by this point. My brother works at Starbucks and says it's started up.

Last week I applied for a job and found Christmas music playing.


The plus side of applying for a job at Bath and Body Works is I'll go into the Nutcracker at Montreal looking like I killed the Sugar Plum Fairy in the amount of glow dust scrub would have coated myself in. If I get the job. (With the help of someone I know who works there...probably)

I looked up what kind of voting machines my state/area uses. Found a pdf "poster" with six simple steps on using it. This is the final step:

Quote:
After pressing the green VOTE button, part the
curtain with your hand and walk through the
curtain and out of the voting machine.
Number six is literally instructions on how to leave. I mean, thank god, someone might have gotten trapped behind that curtain forever!

Maybe they were trying to be funny including that? lol

Most people I see on my FB feed proudly proclaiming "I Voted!" are the types who'd spend all day trying to eat their soup with a fork and knife.

"Better safe than sorry", most likely.
