Happy Father's Day to those who are dads or father figures in here! 😁


@Heavyarms55 I don't get the littering aspect either when it comes to those. Them not using the ashtray was complete laziness. As for if someone is outside and there isn't a place to put them, I really don't think it's that hard to buy something to carry around that's non-flammable to put the used ends in until later.

Thankfully neither of my parents smoked. We had some next door neighbors as a kid who were very nice people, but I didn't like going to their house since they smoked like chimneys.

@CuteKidPit It's amazing how many cig filters I find in my yard when I'm out mowing or tending to my knockout roses. I don't smoke, but I do live right next to a busy highway. With how the road drains when it rains, I'm sure some filters get washed back into my yard. It's an annoyance that I can't do much about besides throw them away.

I occasionally find them in other parts of my yard too. There was evidence that the house has belonged to smokers more than once, so I'm sure that's where some of that is from.

@HobbitGamer - Just saw your suggestion for the next Smash character, and Mister Rogers is a character I’d actually pay money to have. It makes me wonder how they could make a moveset that keeps in line with the character. He’d probably need to be a defensive character who can return projectiles with love and shut down opposing offenses with hugs and sincerity. His offensive moveset would be a problem, but I think Nintendo could figure it out.

I think "keep it up" is not really something you say in regards to a smoking habit

@HobbitGamer - Ha, well, in the documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor, his wife shoots that down as urban legend, but it’s still fun to think about. There’s a famous episode of The Simpsons where Bart discovers a hidden treasure trove in the comic book shop, and one of the things he finds is a roll of film titled “Mister Rogers Drunk”. We don’t get to see the footage, but we get the audio of him yelling, “Whadd’ya mean I can’t take my sweater off, I’m HOT!” Priceless.

@ReaderRagfish
I mean, keep up with the good habits regarding not imposing on others, hahaha.
And while it would be ideal for people to not smoke, some people just can’t live with it. My grandma smoked right up to the end - she was quite unhappy if she didn’t have her cigarettes!

I have a chronic lack of time, for everything.

Now playing: Okami HD, Mario Kart 8 Deluxe.

@Luna_110 I mean, it is an addiction, not a habit. Withdrawal is really nasty. When my parents quit they were... in less than a good mood. My mother ultimately gave up and started back up, that was a huge can of worms because she hid it from my father and me. Of course we found out. I was still pretty young so I couldn't really say much, aside from not being willing to lie if Dad asked about it.

But I digress, addictions like that are really hard to break because your body grows to physically crave it. There are chemical things going on that make you want it that are stronger than normal cravings. I am perfectly willing to admit I am addicted to caffeine. I get nasty headaches if I go more than a day without any.

It's actually both. While of course there is the chemical addiction part of it, any smoker can tell you that it's a habit as well — as in, you will regularly have a smoke at certain times, like after a meal, when getting in the car for a drive, at a specific regular break-time during work, etc. That's a big reason why it's so hard to quit — not only does your body develop a physiological dependence/craving (the addiction), there's a huge psychological component to it as well (the habit), especially when you've been a smoker for a long time.

@the_shpydar This. Humans are horribly predictable because we love routines. Changing routines takes effort.
People, places, things.
It is what it is. I personally know it’s not healthy at all, but I’m just not willing to give it up right now. So I at least attempt to minimize my own choice from impacting others. Just because I choose to infuse my body with massive amounts of crap doesn’t mean others want the byproduct 😂

My work misadventures continue with a 170kg display falling on me. Managed to hold it up, only just, but it's killed .y back and hips.

Also while I was on holiday my new supervisor started, ya know, the kne who didnt work on our department until now.

Turns out she didnt really do anything with or for the team. So good pick she was.

Nah, you'd like me. You'd be too scared not too...

But all joking aside: a bit out of context, seeing as I did also mention being highly social, and a real people person. The key word is moderation, in all of it. I'm neither overpowering people with my more dominant qualities, nor am I smothering them with my lovable people skills. I know how to level with just about anyone. If anything, it's that exact skill which is the more scary part about me.

P.S.

Calling someone a sociopath isn't really any less insulting than calling them a psychopath...

@rjejr You knew you'd find what? Got your threads mixed up?

Completely agreed on the Passage, though. I obviously had to keep my mouth shut until you've seen all of them, but my sentiments were pretty much the same. There's talk about a second season, but by the time they'd start filming that, they'd have to explain how this forever young girl has suddenly gotten visibly older.

All in all, it was still quite an interesting ride regardless. Shame about the drop-off ending...

But Preacher is also a good show, so you've got some good episodes to look forward to. I don't know if you're into that, but I've personally also enjoyed The Exorcist series, and right now, I'm looking forward to season 3 of Marvel's Legion, which I also saw you mentioning, and which will start on the European Fox Network next week. Be sure to strap in for a really psychedelic ride with that series, though, because calling it weird doesn't even come close to describing the experience of watching it all unfold...

@Tyranexx Yeah, all of the Treehouse segments are available on the official Nintendo YouTube channel now, as are the Direct itself, and all the individual game trailers/teasers, so you can now play catch up in your own time...

@HobbitGamer Well, you could always start vaping. I do believe they also have pineapple flavor now...

@bimmy-lee @HobbitGamer All this talk about Mr. Rogers made me think of my uncle, who at times referred to my aunt as Mrs. Butterworth. For clarity's sake: both were unfamiliar to me, but apparently so very American that I actually should have known them, to some extent at least. But in the case of my aunt, my uncle had to explain it to me, which kind of killed the joke.

But at least I got it (and the context), the next time he called her Mrs. Butterworth...

@Knuckles-Fajita A 170kg display? What the hell was it made of? Concrete?
