  1. Muscle memory is a wonderful thing.

  2. What's the best US news source?

    Most seem to be awfully biased. Fox, CNN, and MSNBC all seem pretty bad (perhaps MSNBC less so).

    Is PBSNews decent?

    1. lewdicrous



      Take the list with a grain of salt and these are international, not just sites in the US.

  3. If I was a girl...



    And I met Jake based on his LTT forum profile pic.



    I'd feel mad catfished.



  4. Goals for 2021:

    • Get smaller
    • Get huge
    • Buy a new Zegna suit
    • Start eBay jazz

    It'll be nice to finally focus on myself.

      • Get smaller
      • Get huge

      these contradict each other

    2. dizmo


      Not really 😉 Drop 30lbs of fat, gain a fair bit of muscle.

  5. Hiby released an R2? The choices for a new DAP get harder and harder 😐

  6. Green Tea Listerine: Great in concept, but what a horrible after taste.

    1. FloRolf


      I only use the versions that burn every living organism out of your mouth after about 10 seconds. 

    2. dizmo


      Yeah, I thought it was going to be alcohol based and just flavored like green tea, but I was wrong. :(

  7. Nothing's more disappointing than buying carrot cake, and realizing that they've bastardized it with butter cream icing instead of the appropriate cream cheese icing.

      @handymanshandle Carrot cake is highly underrated and I shall not stand for carrot cake slander

    3. dizmo


      It's ok @handymanshandle, I think at your age I held similar beliefs. As you grow older you'll understand it's intricacies and complexities. You can have bad carrot cake though. Under spiced, lacking additional ingredients (raisins, some form of nut to change the monotony of a single consistency), stuff like that.


      @TheSLSAMG It's right up there with angel food cake for me.

    4. soldier_ph


      lol I love Carrot Cake

  8. Oh. Fuck. Yes. Between this and new Foo, 2021 is kicking off nicely.

    Plus the CD is only $10. Which also includes a digital download of the album on launch day.



  9. I can feel you, all around me, thickening the air I'm breathing.


    Lacey Strum was adorbs.

    Right up there with Emily Browning.

      Came here to sample your music


      Was taken down memory lane



    3. dizmo


      Aye, YouTube is great at recommending some solid hits.

  10. Ahhhh the throwbacks



  11. Hmm. So Dubai gets significantly better LED bulbs than the rest of the world. Interesting.

  12. Canada will have enough COVID19 vaccines..by..the end of Sept.

    Yup. Expect another year spent cold. RIP LTX.

      I'm in the US and we don't seem much if any better off. I have no idea when I'll be able to get mine. Both my parents got it already but that's because they're healthcare workers. As a young college student with no preexisting health problems I'm probably pretty low on the priority list to get it...

    2. dizmo


      Yeah. I'm honestly not in a huge hurry; it'll be interesting to see what long term effects there are, if any.

      Glad I'm not in China though, apparently their vaccine is the most dangerous vaccine in the world.

  13. Really Razer. RGB face masks? A new low.

  14. Ah yes, Vancouver drivers. Nothing to miss there.

      Have you ever hit a kangaroo? 🤔

    3. Spotty


      Me personally? No. But it's not uncommon depending where you live. Definitely see a few of them on the side of rural roads though. Probably mostly hit by trucks that can't quickly break or swerve to miss them. 

    4. dizmo


      Yeah, the only animal I've come close to in a car is a moose. Almost ran into bears and deer while walking and riding though.

  15. lol really? A Raid sponsor spot? Oy..

    1. Den-Fi


      COVID got em like...

  16. Looks like Samsung's choice to go with flat 1080p 120hz panels on the new S models was the right choice. GSMArena polling shows pretty definitively that it's the preferred setup.

      I think it's a good sign. They're giving the (majority of) people what they want, and so far rumors point to lowered pricing on the cheaper flagships this year. I think the FE phones they've put out for the past couple of years are the true winners though. Preliminary tests show the Exynos to be just slightly behind (probably not noticeable) the Snapdragon. As soon as their chips with AMD come out, they'll be far in the lead. Qualcomm is getting a little complacent.

      It isn't much about the phone itself. It is more about using galaxy for non top of the line phones. Also moving away from glass back to plastic is kinda strange. On the other hand every phone released in the last few years is glass front, glass back.

      Glad to hear that they apparently figured it out as it was desperately needed. Not sure what effect another round of bashing on Samsung CPUs would do. For the AMD thing I would be careful. NVidia failed with tegra (power consumption was one problem).

    4. dizmo


      Galaxy could just mean flagship SoC. Which they all have. It doesn't have to mean best of the best of everything. That could simply be Ultra.


      Nvidia also made the chip entirely by themselves. This is a Samsung SoC with AMD Radeon graphics. It's completely different.

  17. Mr.Beast: one of, if not the only YouTuber that can make a channel with literally nothing on it and already have 1.06 million subscribers.

    1. James Evens

      Pulling over 17 mio views in less then 24 hours on his main channel.

      No drama. No music video.

  18. It's funny how far off Google searches for YouTuber's salaries is. It says Pokimane, for instance, makes $250k/year, when it's really likely well over $1mil.

      Hahaha oh jeez. That's hilarious. Her Fortnite dance is pretty funny too.

      VIP harlots make no less than 8 figures a year, I'm talking about the ones some senator or the CEO of Twitch can afford, those guys don't pay $100 an hour. Oh well, sex, weapons and big pharma are the largest industries in the world after all.

    4. dizmo


      I wouldn't really say she uses sex to make her money though. She's also very selective with what she'll promote.

  19. Interesting. In 2020, total household compensation in the US only fell 0.5%. It actually went up in Australia.

  20. After some research I've decided on a cordless screwdriver to buy. Naturally, it's only available from one source, where it's $30 more expensive than it should be.

    Thanks, 'rona.

      Could be worse.

      Why not try buying a GPU or notebook?

    2. dizmo


      My roommate got his GPU within 3 weeks 🤷‍♂️

  21. I'm totally trying a Chicken McGriddle. Come on Sunday, you can't come fast enough.

  22. I really hate how Amazon has started including international results in their Prime results.

  23. Nerds in Vancouver: Memory Express is hurtin' for staff.


    They've been hiring for every department for ages, and they've now reduced their store hours because of a staff shortage.

  24. I hope no one on the forum lives in downtown DC. If you do, you're in for a rough night.

    1. ragnarok0273


      Glad I went to DC in 2016.

      No political content, regardless of your views.

      • If something spans politics and tech, the discussion must remain clearly within tech and must not descend into politics
      • This covers all parts of the site, including status updates
  25. So you can 3D print skin. Interesting.

    1. TheSLSAMG


      Does that mean I can finally make myself a girlfriend?

    2. dizmo


      One of the scientists said he wouldn't be surprised if eventually the machines like the ones in West World exist...so...yes.

      Japan is giddy in anticipation.
