    How can I keep up with dank memes?

    My 21 year old brother sent this to me the other day. The video has 1.2M views in ~1mo of uploading. I'm sure some of you have seen this already.

    12ozProphet Pelaton Riders?

    Peloton is probably good indoor training for the mt. bike but I think once you get out there on some trails and get some experience it will be no match. I've been riding Emma Long Metropolitan park here in Austin, TX (look up some yt videos of it) about 3 times a week now on dirt bikes. There are some mt. bikers that show up out there but, honestly, I'm not sure how they can even ride back in there. The trails are considered advanced and i've heard the term "world class" thrown around a few times. It's hard on dirt bikes and I'd think there'd be a lot of spots where even the most experienced mt biker would have to get off the bike and carry it up the rock steps. I just started a new job w/ some guys that are serious about mt. bikes so I can see myself getting one in the near future. @Joker- thanks for the app link, it looks very useful.
  5. Seriously Mauler W T F, I can't sit here w/ a hardon for this story forever I'm getting dizzy.
  6. Bravo, deleting social media will definitely put a dent in their bottom line when everyone catches on that it's bullshit anyway. I want a fucking king size snickers, not a mini snickers. Misteraven's post about the IOS screentime app reminds me of something that I do that pisses people off pretty regularly. I treat my phone like it's a tool that I use when I want to use it.... and that's not very often. I mute it quite a bit and don't check it for hours. I leave it in the car when i go places that I will be walking around because, you know.... I checked how to get where I was going before I got there and don't need to be buried in GPS while I'm walking. This leads me to another thing that absofuckinglutely gets under my skin. People walking looking at their phone should be just as illegal as driving w/ the phone. I don't want to have to navigate around you because you're too dumb to look where you're going in crowds. Also, a more street conscious person with less morals than me might just snatch your shit and you will have 0 chance of catching them because you're an internet nerd that only uses this fantastic tool for cat pictures and social media. In any case, try ignoring your phone, leave it at home sometimes. I forget mine on my coffee table sometimes and realize as I'm already a mile from the house that I forgot my phone and guess what..... I choose to not turn around and get it because it's not a necessity. There is no "emergency" where someone needs to get ahold of me and if I have an emergency there are plenty of ways to get help without using your own phone. I'm a tech guy that hates tech. I have a very full bookshelf at home and need more room because I want more books.

    12ozProphet Pelaton Riders?

    I'd probably get a mountain bike w/ full suspension. I'm looking at getting a Santa Cruz Bronson because there's a lot of good trails to ride here. With you living close to mountains @misteravenyou probably have some fantastic places to ride, perhaps even on your own property.

    Kanye is a genius

    I'm sad for Americans. I really am. I feel like our country is having major issues that have been brewing for a long time and I'm glad that it's finally having light shone on it. Hua, I appreciate the comments you've made whether I agree or disagree doesn't matter. I'm glad you're at least putting more thought into what you're posting than I think a lot of Americans are putting into life period. I think many problems would be solved if people began thinking a lot more logically about the problems we're facing.

    Kanye is a genius

    From what I've observed it's only one side of the American population that sees the people that don't agree with them as an enemy... by definition. As an example, I know a lot of people that don't consider people that think differently from them politically to be "the enemy". The people I'm talking about are not going to burn your stuff, ruin my city, break your cars that are parked, break your store fronts, call you racist/masoginist/sexist, etc because they don't agree with your political views. Being an idiot is it's own punishment because people that are adept in social situations will simply ignore you as if you don't exist. Those pointing fingers at their "enemies" have a harder life and I feel sorry for them wasting so much time and energy on a battle that cannot be won with their tactics. I cannot imagine that any red blooded American is going to think differently after having their stuff destroyed. I'm perfectly fine with those that don't agree with me existing and thinking/saying whatever they want. edit: not meant as a jab or to polarize you Hua, you just got me thinking about something I've been considering for a while.
  11. Wow, just encourage people to not read or educate themselves. There are smart people behind these campaigns to keep the general population kinda dumb. I'm not saying it's some huge conspiracy with an end goal but I feel that like unspoken end goal is hurtling towards us anyway.
  12. In for the pictures. Sounds like a good story already.

    Kanye is a genius

    The South Park episode where he's trying to explain why he's not a gay fish pretty much sums it up. Thank you Trey Parker and Matt Stone for all that you do. I'm not sure what Kanye does that makes people think he's a genius. I've never heard anyone I've considered to be smart call him a genius.... so there's that.

    How to get rid of bums outside my window

    I dunno man it sounds like a stale mate to me. You're not willing to do anything and they're not willing to leave on their own because it's a sweet spot. There have been several suggestions that would make the tree inhospitable for bums. How much do you REALLY want them gone? I'll tell you all a story about calling the cops on people. The neighbors on the other side of my duplex, that share a driveway with me, well it was an older Mexican lady (in her mid 30s or so) and this younger wigger white kid (in his early 20s). I don't know how or why he decided that this much older woman with kids was the place to rest the sloppy bone but it's whatever. So they moved in, and we'd hear them fighting sometimes..... and we'd ignore it. One night while we were laying in bed they started fighting except this time it sounded like he was killing her.... the way she was screaming. We both decided, "no fuck that we're calling the cops." And we did. That was only the first incident, this same thing went on 2-3 times a week. He kicked down the front door of the house. Oh, mind you this little fuck mean mugs you as he is walking the neighborhood street back and forth from his Church's Chicken job.... no bullshit. I'm like 10-15 years his senior at least and this little bad ass wigger is living in the same house as me and acting like an asshole in a way that is affecting my rest and relaxation. Absofuckinglutely not. I never interacted with the kid much so he had no reason to mean mug me other than he was on some, "i have to look hard as possible all the time or people will know my true bitch colors." This kid proceeds to get arrested 3 times on our front porch and I haven't seen police in our neighborhood before this goon moved in next door. My other neighbors up the street are pretty serious rednecks.... like I'm talking 24v cummins parked in the driveway drinking beer until bedtime everyday after 5pm.... and they hear arguing down by my house one night. They walk over, drunk, ready to start some shit if shit needs to get started..... and find ol wigger dude and the lady arguing in the front yard and she's acting like he was physically fighting with her. My neighbor told him to get the fuck out of the house and start walking. Which is hilarious, kicked him out of his own house. The point I'm making is that, there was no "nice" way to deal with this fuck. They eventually moved out because I'm friends with the landlord and got pretty tired of seeing the police over here, listening to fighting while I'm trying to sleep, and getting mean mugged on my street by some little dumbass I could easily twist into a pretzel. I wonder if they're still together in their new home, repeating the same things. Good riddance fuckos, glad the police got involved with you all several times.

    Break it down to me.

    I agree with you. Nobody wants to be spammed. I have a big sign on my front door that says "no soliciting" and yet, still have people, dumb kids mostly.... knocking on my door holding a clip board. I'd say the "with great power comes great responsibility" applies. Many companies with a lot of data aren't used to holding that kind of power.... and they misuse it either on purpose or on accident through negligence. I think that the responsible way to market after data has been collected is in a non intrusive manner, this, unfortunately, is where many of them get it wrong. I hate it when I sign up on a page that requires you to because they don't accept pay pal or guest checkouts..... then lo and behold I'm getting their weekly update emails even though I clicked "don't send me updates/newsletters". I would say it, at some point, is going to cause legislation to happen making certain things not legal.... such as sending people newsletters even though they didn't ask for them. It really boils down to greed I think. The more data you can have, the more possible money you can make with all the possibilities that someone you market to may impulse buy. This is why VPN connections and burner email addresses are good to use. I have an email address "daddystop@gmail.com" that I use for anyone that I don't want to contact me but requires an email address to sign up. I also use a google hangouts voice number to forward to my normal phone number. This prevents me from giving people my actual phone number and allows me to use google to filter calls a lot better than my phone carrier allows me to. I definitely don't think spamming in any manner is ok. This includes circulars filling my mail box, dude on my door step that can't read a no soliciting sign, people blowing their horn crazily in traffic, homeless spamming me with cardboard signs at stop lights, bill boards lit up on the side of the highway, etc etc etc. Really I look at a lot of it as an insult on my intelligence. I know that's a bit extreme for thinking about it, but consider that I could be a very smart person... adept, aware of my world. Why would you think that you're presenting me with some amazing opportunity/offer/special price that I was not capable of finding on my own. I mean I own an internet machine that helps me find anything I want, whenever I want it.... so, to me, it's basically like you're saying I'm too dumb to find these awesome things without the help of you. It's just annoying really, I'm pretty particular, more so than most people I talk to. While we're on the subject, does anyone else think it's an incredible waste of paper to send circulars in the mail.... or paper mail in general. I understand some things are 100% necessary to have a hard copy of, but advertisements in your mail there is no "opt out" there. I think our US Mail system could use a serious rework for many reasons. I check my mail like 1 time a week because it's mostly junk in there. I'm sure my mailman hates me for it.

    Wtf is up with "new music". I'm trying real hard to not seem crusty here. I "discovered" some videos the other day on Diplo's youtube channel that really made me wonder what the heck is going on with music. Lil Pump Trippy Red Little Xan Their songs are very simple in terms of lyrical technicality, not that that's some measure of good music.... but I remember watching Scribble Jam videos where people with actual skills were trying to defeat eachother. These new songs have the same word rhyming at the end of ever line and they same the same sentence multiple times and this constitutes a "song". (For instance Trippy Red says in "wish" - i can't feel my face, i can't feel my face, i can't feel my face, i can't feel my face." Like we get it dude, you're going to stroke out from a cocaine induced heart attack at 35. I don't get the "whisper rap" or the people that sound like they've never taken a singing class in their life. Again, i'm trying real hard to not be crotchety here about this but it really seems like our standards have just fallen through the floor that I thought was rock bottom. Can someone give me some insight as to what it is the kiddos are finding so fascinating about this genre? I'd bet money that most kids into this music, without looking it up, couldn't name 3 of the elements of hip hop. If anyone else has anything else they're not understanding and need broken down for them, please ask here. This doesn't just have to be about my new young person music question.

    The Off Grid living thread (Dropping out the rat race)

    I can't agree with you on this. I say if someone is going to fight then they're potentially trying to kill you and that's why there are no rules in a street fight. Bricks, belt buckles, mace before you beat their ass, etc is all ok in a street fight.

    I'm saying I think it changed though, didn't it used to be free 2-day for anything marked prime? Also my stepbrother is into those Pops things... they're crazy it's the same thing as beanie baby crazy. I think.

    Side Hustles

    ^^ Yes, I really just want to be able to make car parts or anything I want really. There's a really good channel on youtube that I watch a lot called 6061.com. His videos are awesome because he does things quickly without making you sit through some long video of him cleaning metal up. @Brink- do you make any metal art at all? My girlfriend has a friend that makes art out of car parts. Some of her work is really amazing.

    Pops like... soda pops? I think Prime is expensive. It's a good thing Google and Amazon aren't the same company, if they were you wouldn't be able to search google for products and find them cheaper with shipping than you can get them on Prime. I don't know if I'm wrong about this but I thought Prime meant you get 2 day shipping for free on anything that says "Prime".... but now it seems like there are many products marked Prime but they don't have 2 day shipping. Or it will have an option at checkout to add 2 day shipping for an additional fee. The collecting info on your habits for marketing purposes is definitely something they do, but I cannot see them selling their info to any other company because it'd make more sense to use it for their own purposes. So, in that regard it may not be such a bad thing. I, for instance, like that youtube will suggest to me things that I already like. It makes finding new stuff easy when it relates my browsing habits to other peoples' that have similar viewing habits. It's a double edged sword really with data collection.
