I guess I'm the opposite of a hypochondriac. I don't worry about my health or go to doctors.
Is it wrong that I picture you as Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation?

A character I love, and find the comparison anything but insulting...

Touché. Best character possibly ever.

For anyone who hasn't finished this yet...you might be missing the best game ever made. Since my ps3 died prior to the original release, this was my first time through on the ps4. The care that went into this game is astonishing. It just hit nailed about every aspect. Loved it.

IMHO some 'gamers' feel that DEV houses and their publishers owe us something based on all the cumulative dollars spent. And when we feel slighted - either from over saturation (as documented above), delayed game releases or what have you; we turn our anger to the only entity we feel that we could / should blame.

Irony is that it is the same gaming public that buys the very product over saturation and delayed games that cause all the 'hurt feelings' and perverted sense of entitlement.
Those companies have people running them that know how to make millions and they do it very well. If we as gamers were that smart as we think we are we wouldn't be gaming as much and instead help in running one of those companies....

Its a ridiculous merry-go-round. There are bigger fish to fry in my day to day life.

Just my 2 cents.

I agree 100%.

I am one. I never used to be. When I was younger, anything that was wrong I knew would just go away. I could be puking all night long and knew I just ate something bad. Nothing was serious, I was young and invincible.

Then something happened last year. First an optometrist told me I am a high risk for glaucoma, which freaked me out despite it being something that can be managed. Next I kept waking up with both arms asleep (pins and needles). I did some internet searches and found this to be a symptom of diabetes. If you have never looked up the symptoms, almost everything is a symptom of the disease. I became convinced I had it. I don't meet most of the criteria, but I was a heavy drinker and I was sure that my years of drinking had caused it (Turtle's post scared the hell out of me). Still I wasn't going to the doctors for it. Until I went to the dentist and they found spots in my mouth. They weren't sure what they could be, probably nothing, but it could be cancer (a type that is common for heavy drinkers), or diabetes (as I said, everything is a sign of diabetes). I rushed to my doctor for blood test. Nothing.

It got worse. I kicked a space heater early last year and really messed up my toe. Six months later I go to the doctor for it because it's still hurting. They take X-Rays. Nothing wrong.

The last month my eye hurt to move it. Any movement hurt and gave me headaches. This of course is a sign of diabetes which often results in temporary blindness. Freaked me out. Doctor and optimist can't find anything (but again, I am a high risk for glaucoma they tell me). Schedule a MRI. Nothing, I am perfectly healthy.

Last week, my gums are bleeding like crazy. I have a bad history of periodontal disease (a sign of diabetes) where I had to have a bone graft four years ago for. I don't usually look at my gums, but that night I did. I became convinced my gums were receding, the periodontal disease was back and I was going to lose teeth. I called every dentist in the area until I could find one that would see me that day. Nothing wrong, my teeth/gums are in great shape.

This is what it feels like to start going crazy at age 44.

You are not alone, trust me.

I've never understood the need to monitor your caloric intake to this degree or to know exactly how many steps you've taken in a day.  Does this information somehow make you lose weight?  Don't most people who are trying to keep fit have a general idea of whether or not they've consumed too many calories or not exercised enough?  
However back to the Vessyl.  This seems like a pretty big waste to me.  Most of this information is already on my fitbit page (not to mention the side of the damn can).  They have a huge database of food you can look up already and it auto inputs everything for you.  I drink a can of soda, I just add it on the page and all the nutrition info is already there.  It is definitely NOT worth $200 to me to have a cup save me that 5 minutes of time.

It's $100 now smile

And re: measuring, I present Soylent.

Also what I'm learning, if you want to be healthy , the only drink you should be putting in your body is water.  That's a pretty easy drink to track...


Again, Soylent.

Well, water and beer...

I don't like you Tilt. Just being honest. But I respect your beliefs.
Who you are in real life no one knows.
But here, here you're an arrogant know it all, who jumps on anyone with a stron belief. Who critizes spelling over the topic.
Who attacks the person, instead of the topic at hand.
You're just someone who's developed an online persona that has become who we know at "tilt" today.

Wow Arclight, if you actually want me to read your post, try not to start it with insults and personal attacks. Even better, don't confuse me with someone else, because apart from the part about arrogance, which I can certainly see how you'd get the impression of me being, none of the things you mention are things I do. Feel free to dig up posts that prove otherwise. I very specifically don't engage in ad hominems, which is what you're saying I do. I don't criticize spelling over the topic. I address the topic. I don't attack people (unless they've attacked me first, and even then I try to restrain myself from answering in the same vein. Notice how this post isn't an ad hominem, for example). I attack their arguments. I don't jump on anyone with a strong belief. I challenge those who confuse beliefs with facts, or who use facts they don't understand to explain beliefs they have (this latter part is what I did with you in my last post, for the record).

But let's make it simple: Personal attacks are against the rules for this forum. If you find me committing those, use the report button. In the same vein, I'm using the report button on your post, because it's a personal attack.

Have a nice day.

I spoke too soon. tear

Wait, are you saying that Arclight's post was okay, but mine isn't?

Sorry but, it's resurrected...

one of my aunts was super JW and sent my brother and i identical illustrated Bible Story kid's books (the ones with the painted illustrations... you know what i mean.) also forbid my cousin from playing Dungeons & Dragons with us, but we did it anyways. no judgement of JHWH came upon him for that crime, as far as i can tell. for a much later holiday, we received identical "Evolution... Let's Talk About It"-kinda books (which went unread, forever).

Something about the usage of "super JW" was surprisingly entertaining .

They should!  It's more mind boggling when they have people leave to go to places like Infinity Ward!

Yeah. As I may have mentioned, I never played this before as my ps3 shit the couch slywink before this came out. I loved uncharted , but this is on a whole new level! God bless naughty dog .

Yeah I'd agree fps is probably between 50 and 60 the whole time. Sure beats 30 or below. The cutscenes are different at first but I like them at 60. To me at least , not as jarring as a high hrz tv . That looks "fake" to me , where this just looks like a higher fps. Can't wait to play more tonight!
188  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / Re: [PS3] The Last Of Us on: July 30, 2014, 04:14:55 PM
The shooting feels better than any other naughty dog game so far. 60 def makes a huge difference.

Instead of getting adequate sleeping I decided to play WAY too late. I missed the first time around because of my ps4 shitting out. So, far, it's awesome! I really don't wanna give spoilers out, but...

Spoiler for Hiden:
His daughter dies? Wtf?!?

It's just gets better the more I play it. Challenging, great graphics and audio, script , acting, all good. Beyond good for sure.

Edit: please change the thread name to include the ps4 version, I feel like I'm misbehaving.

Thx guys! Yeah it's a old 60's home that's been gutted and completely redone. Small , but we aren't having kids so not a concern. Granite countertops, new cabinets, stainless appliances that are mostly all staying. New roof, windows, driveway and lots of other new stuff . Nice yard/ garden, but not huge so maintaining it shouldn't be a huge effort. Just have to gate the fence at the driveway then the dogs will have a cool spot. Home inspection is scheduled for the following Monday, same for appraisal. The ball is rolling! I'll enjoy the last of us this week cuz I won't have a lot of free time for a month or two...
