Last time I had an almost ingrown toenail, I actually slit the skin above the nail where it was starting to grow into and clipped the whole nail. Ended up trimming it like every 3 days just to be safe. Thankfully I have earned my flintstone feet from having very thick skinned feet, and having stubbed my toes so often and run so many roadcases over them that it takes nothing short of a car running over my foot to really hurt it. Although, I did run a 900lb roadcase full of pipes over my foot a month ago which hurt like a bitch. My white sock was a lovely shade of red when I got home from work that night, lol.

My understanding is that it has about three or four shots before the barrel breaks.  In theory that would make it a good 'Saturday Night Special' gun if it wasn't so large and obvious ("OH SHIT, HE'S BRINGING A HUGE BOTTLE OF WINDEX INTO THE BAR, RUN!").  That said, one could just print out several and switch between them for a mass shooting, but that's not the issue that concerns them.  The issue is that it's a weapon that's impossible to ban with any real effectiveness if a gun ban does occur, which is a terrifying prospect for any government on that particular power trip.  What are they going to do, send police to kick down the door of every person suspected of using a torrent site the file is on?  Ban libraries from carrying 3D printers?


Why bring several guns, when you can just bring several barrels?

The REAL issue is that this weapon is plastic. All plastic, save a nail for a firing pin and any ammunition you have for it. This thing can be brought anywhere with little to no suspicion raised. President visiting your town? Great opportunity to print a gun up and dispatch him. Not like anyone would take notice of a large plastic block being pointed at him, considering how many cameras are always pointed at him.

This is a frightening thing. Maybe not for mass murder, but assassination attempts for sure. I don't know how anyone can shrug this off as inconsequential. This gun is going to kill someone important, guaranteed.

I'm a massive Metal Gear fan, and I can safely say that David Hayter is Solid Snake. Him playing Big Boss in MGS3 was acceptable, and in peace walker and the lulzy portable ops, though it did make for oddness in MGS4 when he wasn't voicing Big Boss again. Still, Hayter is a dedicated man, and his appreciation for this series as a whole shows it. Konami loses major respect for this whole course of action. I thought Japanese were supposed to be more respectful than that?

Iron Man 3 was pretty great in my opinion. I can see why some big comic book.nerds would be upset about it, as they butchered the extremis storyline and the Mandarin completely. However, fucking Ben Kingsley is awesome for his role in it. The whole movie was acted well, and the story was engrossing enough to keep my attention unlike a certain doctor at the end. As always, Robert Downey Jr sells Tony Stark like Mcdonalds sells shitty fastfood....better than anyone else alive.

Rebecca Hall needed more screen time, and William Sadler did too...and Miguel Ferrer got dicked entirely, he had like 3 lines of dialogue wtf? They give the hot french chick who's had like 2 roles in movies I know an entire sequence and Miguel Ferrer 3 fucking lines of dialogue ( slight exaggeration)? I call shenanigans.

I didn't wanna really whine about my predicaments. I just more or less wanted to maybe see my problems written out in front of me. It helps a bit seeing it like that, and as much as I'd like to consider myself a stand up guy, I generally can't help desiring the option to get away from it all. I know it doesn't make me a bad person, but I don't feel better knowing it.

Honestly, getting all that off my chest made me feel somewhat less depressed. I went to the gym today and did a fairly solid workout, back and triceps. Not my best numbers, but good numbers and a good rythym, very little downtime between sets and exercises. Followed up with Iron Man 3, which was a great movie. Today was a nice day all in all.

Well, it's not like I'll inherit his actual monetary debts, I can just tell everyone fuck off on those. I'm referring yo things like our apartment, all his stuff, and any jobs he's got that I would normally just do with him. I can deny them, sure, but then who would wanna hire me again?

I may be over-thinking some of this, but I can't get it off my head. Sucks, really.

I think some of my depression in life is now affecting my gym performance. Yesterday, I tried 315 on the bench, even though I didn't really feel it. Sure enough, I got it off the bar, down to about 4 inches above my chest, and almsot spazzed as my right arm couldn't hold the weight. Luckily I got it off to the bottom rack of the bench, circumventing a decapitation. I was not pleased at all, and the rest of the workout suffered further... everything was lower numbers, less reps, and it upset me. I pushed twice as hard as I normally would just to get through my workout, and all I could think was I am a loser.

D is not pleased.

What the hell is your problem?
Just remember you asked.

Short version, my dad's slowly dying from literally body failure, and 8 years of working for him has made me sort of....not believe in my own skill set. Work's been tight lately, only small jobs here and there, and a lot of bullshit in between. Money's lacking due to assholes delaying checks. A personal problem that's been on and off for a while has once again struck me and is worse this time than it's been in years and I really don't need to go to a doctor and be told something drastic that's gonna cost money or worse keep me on the injured list for the next few months.

The big kick is my dad's shoulder has been really acting up lately. He got a shot of cortizone the other day with almost no effect, and he's almost constantly in pain. It's really throwing me off my game. I always stay up late to make sure he doesn't need anything, which results in me constantly being cranky from lack of sleep. I also am getting stuck being essentially a housemaid, havinv to clean up after him constantly now, and being nervous when I go out in case he's in need of something or he's slips and gets hurt...I lost my kom a few years back, don't really wanna lose my old man just yet.

It boils down to...
I wanna go off on my own and do my own thing, but am afraid of what's gonna happen to my dad and my sisters, who still rely heavily on "Bank of Daddy" which is funded by my backside.

I wanna stay here still and try to keep daddy dearest comfortable and make his day to day dealings easier, but that results in a literal dead end in however many years he may have left, as I'll be left with whatever debts (monetary and job related) he has left, and nothing to show for it. I'm 27 years old, I should be fucking deciding about starting my own family soon, not playing hospis at home...however it's my dad, my only remaining parent.

Even typing this is depressing the shit out of me, feels like a fucking cow sitting on my chest. I don't even get angry about it anymore, which used to help me deal with the stress of it, now I'm just always upset about it.

It's real simple, this guy wants to tell the government to fuck off by giving idiots abroad a way to create a death-dealing device that can go anywhere. Even better is anyone actually giving this guy some form of press coverage to further spread his idea and concept.

Congrats man, you've got the new terrorist weapon of choice, AND it's eco-friendly.

The only reason the concept of pissing your life away drinking and fucking doesn't sound desireable is because you know you can't support said lifestyle. If you were a multimillionaire (or a hippie bum), you'd probably have a very different outlook on life to begin with, and much less concern regarding things like responsibility, the driving force behind us not simply catering to our own primal desires all the time.

To be fair though, I do not like drinking much, myself.

Desire, determination, and comfy footwear.

Bear in mind I do not run, but I use a similar logic for when I bike at the gym.

The name Vanillaware meant nothing to me until Dragon's Crown was really getting slammed.

What a shame.
Not really, having seen Odin Sphere as one of their other big games, I see why I don't recall the name. Wasn'5 a fan.

Bad press is still press. The name Vanillaware meant nothing to me until Dragon's Crown was really getting slammed. Granted, it's only being covered in circles that are focused on by people who knew of it already, but it oughta provoke more people into playing that would have simply passed it over as a Dungeons amd Dragons game "or sum shiet".

Don't care what other morons have to say about it anymore. I wanna play this game.
