I used to toke a lot, but I don't really get weed culture. There's nothing special about smoking a ton of pot.

One of the things I enjoy about the kratom "community" (if you can call it that) is the fact that it's treated more or less like drinking coffee or something, and not as something trendy where taking a shitload is celebrated. Actually, taking a lot all the time is seen as more of a negative thing.

maybe the universities shouldnt fucking force courses on people that arent related to their major and have them study what they want to.
This is one of the strangest things about American education to me.
My sister was required to take math and English classes when she was going to college for cosmetology. I believe it's because you have to pay for those courses and the college has to try and get as much money out of you as they can because the funding for education in the US is pretty awful.

I had to have my gallbladder removed in 2013. I wasn't having any "attacks" and I didn't have any stones, but it was literally not functioning at all. The couple weeks after was pretty unpleasant but not unbearable. Your abdomen is really sore and it fells like you have a balloon trapped inside of you because they have to literally inflate your gut to do the surgery and it takes a while for all the air to leave your body.

Unfortunately for me, my being as sick as I have been for 7 or so years now was not due to my gallbladder so having it removed did not help me at all, and it might have even made things worse.

Also, be prepared to get the shits anytime you eat greasy foods or anything high in fat for at least a few months.

you don't think anybody is interested in your actual biography do you?
Why are you asking a question in a post where you are essentially quoting the answer to it?

Disney seems pretty content with letting Star Wars in gaming go right down the shitter. I wouldn't expect them to allow players a great gaming experience like a remastered KOTOR for free when they are pretty adamant about letting EA have the exclusive rights to do anything Star Wars related in gaming where they can aggressively monetize it.

I remember reading that Disney is actually quite unhappy with the way EA is monetising Star Wars at the moment.
Well I had heard that they were pretty content with EA continuing to have exclusive rights to make Star Wars games. Maybe they're trying to force EA to alter their methods when it comes to Star Wars, but at this point I'd be planning to drop them like a hot coal at the next opportunity, assuming they are still bound by a contract for now.

GTA would not be number 1 if modders hadn't been giving me tons of money.

I wish I could know how many hours I've spent playing THUG Pro, I imagine it could be over 10000.

I definitely prefer Steam and consider it a superior platform, but even if Epic's launcher was just as good, I still really dislike third party devs making games exclusive.

A perfect example is Bloodborne. I love the Souls series and I'd love to try Bloodborne as well, but I don't own a PS4 and so it's not an option for me. Destiny was another good example. Xbox players payed the same price as PS4 players and yet received a version of the game with significantly less content; in a game with too little content at launch to begin with.

I detest these types of things in gaming.

Did another random head sketch and ended up turning it into San from Princess Mononoke. The headband is wonky, not all that satisfied with it but whatever.

Editing this cause I completely forgot to sketch the earring like a ditz. Sucks that I already posted it to Instagram without it.

Is it Epic Store exclusive? Because that's what I see on borderlands website.

I hope it's an April fools joke
From what I'm hearing it looks like it will be, which is really disappointing. I really can't stand third party developers doing exclusive deals with platforms.

Word, the design of the characters isn't amazing or anything. I was never huge on the vanilla character designs from 2 either, aside from Zero, though none of them were bad or anything. Hopefully they'll still have interesting and fun abilities and play styles, and maybe skins and heads can make them a bit less boring.

Gaming / Borderlands 3
« on: March 31, 2019, 11:12:34 PM »
So it was announced a few days ago finally. This is probably the only upcoming game that I have any degree of hype for. I haven't felt any sort of anticipation for a game since Dark Souls 3. I just hope they release it on Steam. I'm not really a fan of having to use multiple different game launchers.

I've heard people complain that it looks more like a BL2 DLC, that the graphics aren't really improved much at all, but honestly I think the graphics are perfect and I don't really care to have much more than an updated BL2 experience with new characters, guns, and a new campaign.

Edit, whoops can Flee or Cheat move this shit to gaming, idk why I thought I was still in that forum when I posted smh.

So I actually tried this out with a friend as I haven't played any battle royale games really, and while it's not a bad game at all, I pretty much confirmed that battle royales are not really my thing.

I'm just an arena shooter type of guy. Sad that there aren't too many being released this generation and into the foreseeable future.

Sleep or lots of distractions. Sleep will only work if it's daytime, however. If I'm stressed at night then it will always come with terrible insomnia.

I've thought for years that I should give meditation a shot again but I'm a horrible procrastinator and all I can seem to manage is wasting time.

So some MEPs apparently accidentally voted the wrong way. Enough to have changed the outcome to have the two articles in question removed, I hear. Are politicians/bureaucrats really this inept or are these guys just doing some kind of damage control and trying to distance themselves from something so negatively viewed by the public? smh

Your immune system is gonna be wrecked.

my second CAT scan has been pushed back two months, which pisses me off a little,
This is one of the most frustrating things about going to a doctor. Especially when you have something concerning you on a daily basis. I've had to wait countless months in between visits and it seems like a complete waste of money paying for the insurance.

Watching/listening to various content on YouTube and practicing drawing. I desperately need to add exercise to that.

I had bought a few games I never played or finished like Prey, Doom, Shadow of Mordor, among others, but I don't really plan on playing through or finishing them any time soon. I haven't been as into gaming as I used to be the past few years.

From my understanding the alt-right is defined as being white nationalist by organizations like the ADL and SPLC. If Bannon associated himself with the alt-right then so be it. It just seems so vague as a term to me that it's lost most of its practicality and usefulness in describing people on the right. When you have Jews being labeled as allies to Jew haters, something is amiss in my eyes.

Well for where I live, and the innumerable conservatives that surround me, Ben Shapiro is pretty "run-of-the-mill."

leadership figures within the alt right like Bannon
Bannon is right wing, but is he a white nationalist though? As far as I know, the alt right is defined as being a white identitarian movement.

I see the term alt right thrown around constantly to refer to anyone controversial or prominent on the right, even people like Ben Shapiro who is Jewish and hated by the alt-right. I don't understand how so many people can just casually label various run-of-the-mill conservatives as being white supremacist.
