This is a thread to talk about shit that annoys us. Everyone has something that grinds their gears, shitty drivers, poor customer service, a lackluster blowjob (might also be considered poor customer service), wifi going down, idiots who think they know shit they don't, and more. In our daily lives we encounter shit like that everyday and it anger us greatly.

This thread however is not for the normal shit that bothers everyone but special pet peeves that you have. Something that you personally are greatly bothered by but you see few if any other people bothered by it.

For me its people watching me. Not in some voyeuristic way but just watching in general.

I have a problem with being seen. Most people worry about being invisible, not being noticed, I worry about the opposite. I really feel the Nightkin from Fallout and their love of Stealthboys and hate of being visible.

This shit really manifests itself when I'm doing shit, yard work and crap. I don't really take pride in my lawn but I fucking cut it, try to make it look okay. Seems like anytime I got out to do so people wanna come out on their porches and watch my flabby ass push around a mower. Considering the previously mentioned flabby ass I know they aren't checking me out and I wouldn't want them to, there is a good chance I'm the most attractive person in my 'hood and I wasn't hit with the ugly stick but the whole damn tree.

Maybe they are interested in seeing what hard work looks like. Maybe they feel guilty their own lawn looks like shit. Fuck if I know. Either way it annoys me.

But its not just doing yardwork. Walking my dog, going out to relax and read a book, going for a fucking walking, checking my mail, invariably some asshole has to come out and put eyes on me. There is a reason I try to do everything near to dark if not dark, usually USUALLY but not fucking always less assholes out and aboot.

I know its an irrational annoyance but goddamn does it bother me something fierce. Its like I can feel their eyes like daggers upon me. Mind you I'm not a people person anyway but I probably wouldn't mind the fuckers so much if they'd keep their peepers to themselves.

Potsdam?

Downstate kids hating on anything that isn't NYC-esque are the fucking worst. You're in college in a small town, what the hell did you expect? They even fucking hate on my hometown (in a part of the state you consider shitty) and we aren't exactly the sticks--we have independent coffee shops and all the stupid retail chains they want--so I can't imagine how awful it gets up there.

When I was visiting colleges in Massachusetts in high school we stopped to ask for directions and when we told the guy we were from Upstate NY he was like "Nice! God's Country!" Motherfucker I grew up in a Rustbelt city. I'm not from the woods. And even if I was, what the hell do you think people do there?

They are popular.....for a time.

The fact it its sitting on the shelves with shitty self help books, a selection of Bibles that come in a wide range of sizes and colors, the occasional Star Wars novel (more lately) that I have to stop myself from buying (usually, bought Heir to the Empire last time I was around.....dammit) and usually crap stolen from my work. King books are like Twilight books in where they are flash in the pan popular but people apparently quickly lose interest in keeping them.

Its not just paperbacks on the shelf either, hardcovers too of both King stuff and Meyer shit. Paperbacks for some people, some, treat as more or less disposable but not 20 dollar hardcovers.

Fuck thats retarded. I'm glad you posted that because I've been meaning to getting around to reading that. Just haven't yet where I've been collecting 3 massive book series and haven't had the book budget for anything else.

I actually have a laptop that didn't look much better then that when I got it.

A family friend had her house completely flood including some electronics. She was going to throw everything out but I told her I could probably fix some of it. Usually electronics if they aren't on when they get wet and nobody is dumb enough to plug them in while still wet can be cleaned, dried, and will work.

She had a laptop that wasn't thrown out, completely caked in mud, screen was a bit warped where water got inside much like that picture, just looked completely fucked. I broke it down taking off everything I could pry off, left it near but not too near a heater so I didn't fuck it up worse but it could dry faster, and left it to dry for a 3 days.

Then attacked it was a fistful of q-tips and some rags and like a Jamaican woman chanting mystical bullshit I raised the fucker from the dead. Still had a little screen blur but that mostly cleared up after an hour of it being on. Now only a tiny little spot is damaged but barely noticeable.

The only thing that was actually wrong with the fucker afterwards was a bad stick of RAM but that could have easily went bad before hand.

I really regret not taking pictures, maybe doing a vlog series to throw on jewtube.

On topic, my own laptop is a Dell Precision m4600 workstation laptop I got off ebay for 200 bones.

The cheap-o Amazon Fire tablet has worked out, so far. If you just want something light to pack and break out to read books or watch videos, this works fine. The screen is OK for being so small. The VLC app plays videos well. Transfers video files from a PC easily (far easier than an Apple iPod that also will not play many video formats). A $20 64 GB memory chip is needed for loading lots of videos. 7 hour battery life could be better, but is twice as long as the bestselling budget tablet in the Walmart online store, the $44.99 RCA 7-inch bundled with a keyboard and case. The specifications include a 1.4GHz Quad-Core CPU, 1GB RAM, 8GB storage, 1,024x600px screen resolution, 0.3MP front camera, microUSB port, speaker, 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi, 4 hour battery life and Android 4.4. https://www.walmart.com/ip/RCA-7-Tablet-8GB-Quad-Core-with-Keyboard-Case/38693704#about

The $49.99 Amazon Fire tablet offers a 7-inch screen with 1024x600px, 1.3Ghz Quad-core CPU, 8GB storage, 0.3MP front camera, 2MP rear camera, microphone, 3.5mm stereo jack, microUSB port, speaker, microSD port, Bluetooth, 7 hour battery life and Fire OS 5. http://www.i4u.com/2015/09/95144/50-amazon-fire-compared-bestselling-walmart-bargain-tablet

  Is a $50 Smartphone Worth It? https://youtu.be/1W3lNmYOD94
Published on Sep 23, 2015
For $50 it's hard to argue with the Moto E and Lumia 635.

Lumia 635: http://amzn.to/1ReM6Bf
With so much focus on high end smartphones I wanted to find out what you can get for a tenth of the price. With the Microsoft Lumia 635 and Motorola Moto E 2nd Generation you can get a surprisingly decent smartphone with a five megapixel camera, solid build quality and totally adequate performance.

I picked up a $40 LG Rebel L44VL Android 5.1.1 (Lollipop) smartphone and I was able to transfer my old flip-phone phone number and 2500+ unused minutes. It triples my minutes for the life of the phone, which was the main selling point. Holds 8 GB of data and uses a 1.1 GHz quad-core processor, but nobody will be watching movies on that tiny 4.5" screen. Should be good for calling and using maps for car navigation.

There are smartphones in the $60-70 range that are actually quite decent if you really want a cheap smartphone.

Although...
>smartphone
>good decision
iPhone 4S was $650 if you want to buy it.

I took one look at that price, went out and bought a flip phone, canon digital camera, an ereader, a tablet and a netbook for slightly under $600. Four of these devices connect to wifi and have an earbud jack. Also if any of them gets stolen or damaged I don't have to commit seppukku.

Nowadays people are dumb enough to actually lease phones, like it was a car or something.

  And from the Bureau of Obvious Shit, do not drill a headphone jack in your $650 iPhone 7.
WARNING: Don’t Fall For iPhone 7 Hoax https://youtu.be/XIpx8TmrhCI
“A video claiming that users can add a headphone socket to the iPhone 7, which only has a Lightning port, by drilling into the bottom of their phone has been watched almost 10m times.

The prank video shows a man drilling a 3.5mm hole into the bottom left edge of the iPhone 7 held in a vice. It points to the row of small holes on the left side that replaced the headphone socket present on the iPhone 6S and claims that drilling into the second hole on the left reveals a hidden socket.

Once the hole has been drilled the video shows an iPhone 7 playing music, although the sound comes out of the speakers, not the white headphones now inserted in the DIY hole.”

It's not necessarily about back doors or anything. Just the fact that someone pools certain information (which then later can be hacked) or accustoms people to freely sharing interesting information is an advantage for the CIA.

Georgia officials plan to carry out an execution Thursday that would set a modern record in the state — and, if the lethal injection happens, would be the country’s first in more than two months.

Authorities plan to execute Stephen McDaniel, who was convicted of murder more than three years ago, by lethal injection on Thursday night.

McDaniel’s execution would end a nationwide pause in executions that has lasted for nine weeks as the dwindling number of states still looking to put inmates to death have struggled to obtain lethal drugs and faced uncertainty stemming from court rulings and problems with earlier executions.

The country’s shift away from the death penalty — which continued last year, when the country executed 28 inmates, the fewest in nearly a quarter-century — has not slowed this year. On this date last year, the country carried out its 18th lethal injection of the year. Conner, if put to death, would be the 15th person executed in 2016.

[The U.S. saw fewer executions and death sentences in 2015 than it has in decades]

McDaniel has appealed to the Supreme Court, arguing that he was sentenced to death at “a time when Georgia systemically failed to provide competent counsel at trial and on appeal.” His attorneys have argued in their court filings that he is “an undisputedly cognitively impaired, suicidal trans-man,” and said the idea of executing him more than three years after his sentencing would be unconstitutional.

State officials have responded in a filing saying that lower courts have “thoroughly reviewed his case and reliably found no constitutional violations” leading to McDaniel’s conviction or death sentence and urged the court to reject the request to stay his execution.

Really though John and Wayne are fairly common names in themselves plus the fact John Wayne the actor is still very popular pilgrim its not suprising there is alot of people named John Wayne.

There is a good chance you can find quite a few murderers with the same last name.

I mean there is tons of murderers and serial rapists and pedophiles named Muhammad.

The middle name Wayne features unusually common with convicted killers.
The commonality of the middle name "Wayne" amongst criminals has been remarked upon by News of the Weird and Steven Levitt's Freakonomics blog on the NY Times website. In Nevada there are currently 16 inmates whose middle name is Wayne. In Georgia 374 ... in Kansas 677 ... and in the prisons of Iowa, no less than 3171 offenders have Wayne as their middle name. https://uclue.com/?xq=936

I want to address the recent spams on the board as a mod who has been deleting them and later banning.

Based on the IP address of the spammer it is coming from Ukraine and the first set of spam I personally only deleted them and didn't ban. I throw down the ban when the same people spam the second time.

I find it a little insulted they would spam with such small pictures, the 3rd set of spam is also from Ukraine at least they put up a little bit larger pictures.

Lets talk property layout opchan. How would you lay out your ideal/dream residence setup?

Do you plan on having a detached garage, a shop, barn, storage shed, gardens, woods, orchard, pond, guest house, gun range, or close neighbors?

How close would you like to be to a road? What defense considerations would you have? Do you want to have livestock? Do you plan on having kids toys in your yard? How would elevation differences play into your plan?

Feel free to describe or draw out some ideas or post pictures.

I've seriously considered moving from FL to a state where the cost of living is lower, like AL even. Maybe close to the state line where we could still work in FL.

Ideally we'd homestead on a few acres, so light livestock and gardening, composting, recycled rain water for toilets or irrigation, solar panels, well insulated home, the whole nine yards.

No idea where this came from, but for home defense I think the most ridiculous/outlandish thing I've come up with were drop down or pop up heavy steel gauge panels in entrance ways with gun ports, or embrasures on parts of the home. Honestly though, they'd be impractical as hell and probably as useful as czech hedgehogs or faraday cages (where's the reynolds wrap!?).

Mixed feelings about a saferoom, but a bunker could serve multiple purposes... right? Right?!

Fortunately in this day in age there is so much material on homesteading that the groundwork is mostly laid out for you with a little research. Now I would like to have a garage separate from the home, complete with a forge, to work on knives and what have you. I wouldn't want to go too primitive there though.

A barn would be nice for livestock, but I doubt we'd raise that much, and a chicken coop and a few goats would probably do us just fine.

How I structured the layout would depend on the land. I'd try to work with it to get the maximum potential as far as sunlight/irrigation/etc goes. Of course a humble fence would probably suffice for keeping the livestock in and the gawt dang cattle robbers out too. Maybe some razor wire for the chupacabras and coyotes.

I assumed nice wood floors, guessing that nobody on here would be plebian enough to want carpet.

You'd probably want some decent fortifications if you're moving to a state neighboring Florida anyways, since eventually the state is gonna get punished by god/NOAA and you're gonna have to deal with the hordes of boomers fleeing north as the state slips below the waves.

Sink, Florida, sink.

I've seen the same estimates, but on the flip side there's a lot of man made intervention to prevent the coast from sinking. I grew up in Vernon and Panama City Beach, so I saw the best of both worlds as far as FL goes. Everyone inland is good, mostly armed, and ready for the rapture/WW3. Those baby boomers on the coast? Not so much.

I do think so minor adjustments to the property could be done to remedy the situation. If we homestead, I do want to be very neighborly with the people close to me. As far as actually fortifications go, it really depends on the property, depending on how it lays, there's a lot of options to fortify a home I think.

Now roof access from inside the home and the addition of gun ports on it could work. A strong roof that could serve as a veranda wouldn't be so bad and the gun ports, oh hell, what's the fancy name for them when they're the arrow slit style on a roof, might even give the home a bit of flair I think.

The idea with the drop down or pop up steel barriers would be for even worse scenarios methinks. Although it might be a fun project all the same.

I know I'll avoid French doors, and I'd rather not have windows on the bottom floor if it's built to our specifications. Maybe some small skylight style 'windows' to offer natural light. I'd want a two story home that's green and mean. Of course some of the modifications I'd want to do myself or with local contractors who didn't know what they were building. Fabricating the steel barriers might not even be that outrageous, but making them look inconspicuous would be tricky. In the end that might only slow people down. You know, unless someone, like myself or the missus happens to be there and is taking advantage of the gun ports.

It's fun to daydream about faux apocalyptic scenarios, but I'm just not convinced it'll happen. Still fortifying a home as a project could be a blast.
