1  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Chic fil a and their overly religious behavior. on: Today at 04:20:07 PM

Quote from: wonderpug on July 23, 2014, 06:54:48 PM

When I moved from Boston to Albuquerque, I had an initial culture shock adjustment period to the different level of public friendliness between strangers.  The level of inquisitiveness and smalltalk you get from, say, a grocery bagger in ABQ, is just alien weirdo bizarre in Boston culture.  What does this person want?!  Why are they so curious how I'm going to cook these steaks?  Should I hand over my wallet?!

So I guess if I imagine that there was a single fast food place in Boston that featured ABQ levels of aggressive smalltalk, I might be a little weirded out by that friendliness.  That's about as far as I can relate to ya, Harpua.  All in all, "you're making people be nicer to each other!" is hardly a damning criticism.

I wish it felt they were being nice, which probably is their goal,  not trying to work as gods minions and creep me out.

Loved it. Uninstalled after hitting level 8 and doing most of what could be done. 9/9/14 is marked on my calendar.

reinstall - If you play on the 26th you'll get a badge/emblem when the game goes live, but you will only get it if you play this Saturday

Can't play Saturday, hence the uninstall.

I also fail to see how this has anything to do with religion.

But I do get the part about not liking it when people are creepily overly polite or enthusiastic. I walked into a McDonalds once and everyone behind the counter turned at once and yelled out "Welcome!" and "Hello!", etc. It really upset me because I felt like I was suddenly being thrust into the center of attention. I turned and walked out.

Never had that experience at a Chick Fil A, though. Admittedly, I don't go there very often.

I might very well be a Debbie downer...but, due to the atmosphere set by the local religious presence, the over the TOP odd behavior shown by the employees, it's comes off super fucking creepy. The whole they hate gays things doesn't help either.

They cook all their chicken in a vegetable oil that's been blessed by a priest.  I know this because every time I bite into one, it burns the roof of my mouth.  Some folks tell me it's because they're just hot...but I know better!

Lol!!!

My problem is strictly alcohol, cigarette, and mostly food related... We just ate dinner and for the first time ever I stopped eating when I was full. Imagine that! I always used to eat until the food was gone... I'm 6 ft and 160 lbs and eat like I've been starved my whole life. Oh first world problems.

Okay fools I clearly am bad with explaining this. They are just plain old creepy. I don't need a side of "Jesus" with my sandwich. Period. Even my wife, who almost never complains, says he same thing . She stopped saying "thank you", because the conversation would go like this. "Thank you", "My pleasure, my pleasure, my pleasure, my pleasure". If you don't say thank you, the following doesn't happen in spades. She even filled out a comment card stating "enough with crazy amounts of MY PLEASURE!".

It just feels like Jesus meets twin peaks is the best way to describe it...

Cool thanks guys. Since it's only here and there that it happens I'm going to try and curve my habits firsts and see if that makes a difference . If it strikes like that ever again, straight to the doc. Feels insanely better today thus far.

The location by me is so freaking bizarre and they are getting to me. Everytime I say thanks, they say, "my pleasure". Like over and over and over again. I go through the drivethru one day and see a person outside taking orders. So I say oh the microphone or something must be broke, just making small talk. Her response was that they want to serve me better to make sure that I'm pleased. Overboard. I just want my sandwich ! There's always local church members in there for what I believe is hrs talking to the managers etc. Most of the time it's just comical, but sometimes it's way too much. When they ask what I'm doing on said day and I say just running errands or what have you, please don't further nag me for details! I want a sandwich, give me that sandwich! Rant over.

Has anyone around here had a problem with acid reflux ? I'm
assuming the answer is yes. How bad though? I literally threw up 4 times this morning due to it. I never had it until 5 yrs or so ago, never. I only get it here and there usually, not bad right? Then about 2 times a year I get it bad. I'm working on stopping smoking which I know would help numerous things just not this. Also, cutting back on alcohol is in the works. I'm going to start keeping a journal of what I eat and when it flares up. Any other ideas? Seriously this sucks.

AA is (hilariously) jibing you for your second sentence, which comes out of nowhere in all its rantastic glory.

I think it's meant to be a signature like Eco's ramble about the Fool and bordered immigrant children who are rooting for Belgium or something, but it's not in the right place.


Eco-Logic posted the weird global warming non-sequitur -- not Harpua3.  It might have been an accident, but if so, he's already made it twice.

BTW, apologies to Harpua3 for mixing up the posting order.


Lol . I had to reread this to figure out what even happened. No worries . Now I can brag to my wife by telling her I'm so bad ass that I started... Oh , never-mind .

They said on the news that the Crimea area is absolutely a no fly zone but this area was not identified as dangerous yet. Plus the separatists weren't supposed to have rockets with that kind of range.

First of all, my first world problems are put to rest after hearing this. Teggy made a valid point. Is it possible, gasp, that the government did this? Some news were hinting at this. Sad any which way . Fuck off people in this world who think this will bring anything good.

24 was killing off major characters long before Game of Thrones made it cool. I really enjoyed this season a lot, definitely its best since S5. The 12 hour season helps them to cut out the fat. I was just disappointed that they didn't bring back the cougar from S2 to wreak vengeance for missing out on eating Kim.

The only words I saw were, "eating Kim", yeah. Sorry.

Is now a good time to mention that I spend most of my drive time listening to either the Bombcast or the Cagcast?

Even so, it seems impossible to have not heard "Happy" somewhere!

I would agree. I don't partake in "popular" music much but this song has raped my ears.

Any chance you've got video or at least audio?   My wife is whipping ass on the bass so I've certainly earned an appreciation for that. 

Not as of now. Well, maybe. But low quality. Like iphone shot stuff. We recorded a few weeks back still waiting for it to get mixed this week. 8-10 hrs of recording turns into a chore. A fun chore but still..

Keep us posted - would love to hear it. 

As for the mixing stuff, yea...I've done my share of that in the past.  It's a lot of small adjustments on super-zoomed waveforms and audio balancing over and over and over.  Tedious, but when it's done right it's pretty awesome. 

Cool. I def will.
