  are you sure about the not dead thing? just kidding i'm the same age. only 2 years diff between the mrs and me though. kinda doubt i'd really try to date a woman 20 years or more my junior though. that same place in life thing definitely has some merit. 

Can't argue with that.
That last one was 54, and you know how that turned out.
I'm OK with this new one just being a short fling if thats how it turns out.

CodeMonk I mean that's all fine, but you're old enough to be her dad

I know..

I'm old ("old-ish"?), not dead.
A pretty woman shows interest in me, I notice it.
Self driving cars I can deal with (The company I work for already makes those, to some degree).

A sex robot though?
I dunno about that.
What if the software gets stuck in a loop and ends up ripping your dick off?
Quote by danielh123.
CodeMonk to be honest, looking at a 57 year old... id say yeah, under 35 is definitely weird and creepy. And I'm saying that as someone in a relationship that I think is a little weird and creepy age-wise.

Perhaps.
Those 20 - 30 year old gold diggers that marry 80 year old billionaires, those are creepy.
IMO, that make HER creepy, not him.

This new one asked me out first though.
I'm just guessing at her age right now.
She has two kids. The youngest is less than 1 year old. The other is 3 years old
She may be younger than I think.

I'll never introduce her to my mom though.
At 86, shes "old fashioned", and while she may, or may not, have an issue with her age, she may be a little "surprised" by her skin color.
(Its all pink inside anyway).
Depends on your age, and her age. Not the age gap.
I'm 57 so that "formula" above means I can't date anyone younger than 35?
The woman I am going out with tomorrow night is in her 30's I think (Only known her for about a month).
Last GF is 54. 
That one didn't end well.


If you say so.




Pretty much, yeah.




Can't argue with that.




I can dream can't I?

a bottle of jack daniels and a pile of blues songs for the first night. after hangover subsides put the Frank Zappa song BROKEN HEARTS ARE FOR ASSHOLES on and take note. move on there are plenty more potential partners out there and one of them will actually put up with your crap. i have a mrs so that proves the point. 

All of the above (I prefer rum though. My JD days were long ago).

And yeah, there are plenty of potential partners out there.

I broke up with my GF, well, it started 3 weeks ago, she was having some other problems (injuries from car accident), her sister asked me to help.
I was going to, but I can't even stand the sound of her voice or he sight of her anymore. Nor can I trust her.
(Sorry for the rant).
One woman, at work today (Last night, this morning?), said "I wanna take you out for dinner next weekend".
I said "How about I take you out this weekend?". Got her phone number.
She just broke up with her BF last week.
Yeah, this sounds like a good idea.

But yeah, they are out there.

MusicMan24 Well I would plug the LEDs in it but it is too noisy for me. Haven't really found a solution, I may just need to get a less noisy LED strip. The strip really is just there so I can keep my PSU's local.

Stick an electrolytic cap, 22uF - 100uF, of an appropriate voltage (At least 125% of voltage requirements of the strip. Most 9 volt systems use a 16 volt cap) from power to ground.
Negative end of cap to ground.

Quote by Ippon
CodeMonk, I'm speechless and yet, impressed. 

Something got messed up in her head, through no fault of her own.
I wouldn't feel right just walking away, even with what she did.
OK, I feel like doing a little update on the GF situation.
The other day, before I was talking about going to her PO and Insurance company, I sat outside county courthouse to see her PO.
I was sitting in my car going like Yes, NO, for about 30 minutes.
Guess its a good thing Ippon said not to do it.

Things have gotten more complicated.
She called me, what is now yesterday (working 6PM to 6AM kinda fucks up your perception of he "normal" 24 hour time period), about 6AM.
She asked me to come over. She is staying at her sisters house.
She has constant head pain, her behavior is a little off. 
I told her sister about the rental car fiasco and she was practically speechless.
Even she has noticed that her behavior is a little off. She's also an RN so she might notice things others don't.
Her sister knew I was pissed, but she asked me to stick around and help her sister.
We've only known each other a little over a year, and only been dating for about 8 months (although the last 2 months, since her mother died, not a lot of activity), but I can't bail on her.
So, the struggle goes on.
Been a rough year.
Hope 2018 is better.

You can easily change your mind in a matter of seconds.  10 minutes is way too long.  But if neither person gets consent then they are both rapists, aren't they?  What about actual rapist?  The rapists never said "yes" so they never gave consent so the rape victim is a rapist, too?  Everyone is a rapist apparently.

I guess I just raped myself
I never said yes

Solution: don't let it even last ten minutes

I don't think you have anything to worry about.
You could do it 5 times and still have time for a smoke before 10 minutes are up.
I work 12 hour shifts. 6PM to 6AM.
I work 3 days one week, and 4 days then next. Then repeat.
I don't sleep worth a shit between shifts. 
4 hours is about it.
When I get home on my Friday, I usually stay up till around 1PM.
Then I sleep till around 4AM or so.

So thats the first day of my weekend.
the other days, work around the house, go see my GF (Well, thats not gonna happen again for awhile. See the drama thread), maybe go somewhere else.

It works fine. but it makes the trem has to use. have to stretch it a lot before it's stable.

I have an S570DXQM
It has  ZR double locking tremolo and it takes a while for the strings to get stretched.
I tune them all half a step up, then let it sit overnight.
I live in a small community in the fucking middle of nowhere and it happens all the time.

girls are fuckin trouble man. good luck learning out there bro. this is like the second or third time i've lost a girl and i'm prepared to go through another like 6 painful relationships before i am a strong enough person to handle the right girl. life is weird... like 3 months ago i looked into my gfs eyes and saw a house and a future. now i'm 300 miles away on my own, left to find another ho. dis is life

Yeah, no shit.
And, yeah, I saw us doing a lot in the future.
Actually, it gets worse.
About 12 year ago, i got burned bad.
When I first saw this girl, I thought  "I think this one is worth the risk, go for it".
I dunno about that now.

The "Check Engine" light came on in my car.

Then it went off.

My car is f@cking with me.





Maybe I'll post mine, shitty day at work and still pissed off
laid-to-waste , my GF and I lasted 8 months,
I think this was pretty fucked up.

I've had a fun week.

Well, not really, it was pretty fucked up.
I should have broken up with GF when I was browsing Tinder a  couple of months ago.
I did something stupid though (People in love do stupid things ya know).
Her truck got totaled October 6th. 
Some kid on a revoked license, driving his daddies car, with his fathers full knowledge, hit her.
I been driving her around, and so have her friends.
She was supposed to get a rental, but she doesn't have a valid drivers license (expired and from another state).
Well, last Friday (October 27), I drove her to the DMV to get her license.
The one in Carson City (State capitol) was close since it was a state holiday.
The web site for the one in Reno, showed as open. We went there. Closed too.
She started crying, I felt bad.
So what did dumbass me do?
I rented a car for her to use until Monday when the DMV would be open.
We did that on Friday. Around 11AM.
She said she needed to run some errands, and I went about do some myself.
And got us a hotel room for the night.
She doesn't really have a steady place to live, been bouncing around with various friends, so no privacy.
Finally heard from her at 9:08PM. Said she was at Wal-Mart getting tarps for her storage and getting me something special.

Thats the last I heard from her until Monday at 7:30AM:
       Hello I'm ok. Lost phone     

Powered by Cricket Wireless 

Guess she didn't notice the little ad that gets included on most cell phones emails.
Meanwhile, before that email, I'm going nuts thinking she got abducted or something. And feeling guilty because I felt responsible.
Saturday afternoon, went to the Sheriff, made out a missing persons and stolen vehicle report.
Went to see a friend of hers.
Her "friend" said she called her, that she was ok, and even said it sounded like she was having a good time.
Now, I'm a bit mad.
Saw her friend Sunday before work too.
She told me more. Now I am FUCKING PISSED.

Although, I don't think I can really trust this friend of hers.
Tried calling and texting her several times on Sunday and Monday.
Monday, at work, a few hours since I last tried to contact her, had someone at work call her and ask "Is Jennifer there?"
Wrong number of course. But she answered. Even played a voice mail from her for the lady that called her. Same woman.
Pissed off level went up.
She finally returned the car today.
Ended up costing me $541.21. Bank account went to -$9.58 (Thats minus)
Told me she would get a check from her attorney and I would have it in 24hrs.
I didn't trust her anymore, so I went to see her attorney myself.
Was told that I would she would not get any money until the court case settled.
Tomorrow, I'm going to see her Probation Officer and tell her about this shit.
And I'm also going to call the insurance company for the kid that totaled her truck.
and tell them that she didn't have a valid drivers license.
I already told her attorney (Well, her attorney's assistant).
Thats like $40k - $50k she can kiss goodbye.
I'm fine with eating that $541 if it means she gets what she deserves.

Tip:  Don't fuck over someone that loves you, has dirt on you, is usually in a  bad mood anyway, knows something about the law, and has an IQ of 145.

I've  also sent screen caps of all our conversations and emails that happened  from the beginning of all this to a friend.                 


A friend of mine talked me out of going to her PO and calling the other insurance company.
I'm starting to reconsider though.
She got a call from the Sheriff about the missing persons report Thursday.
Dumb bitch is under the impression that I made the report on Thursday.
I did that on fucking Saturday.


One weird, semi-related thing....
Her and I started at work on the same day (She got fired around February)
There was a about 10 of us in that group.
Only one other guy from that group is still there.
That very first day there, he started hitting on her.
Like kept touching her, he obviously had the hots for her, but he creeped hear out.
She even threatened to file a sexual harassment complaint against.
The following week, she started touching me (No not THERE), in a way that other guy was touching her.
OK, so it was pretty damn good for awhile.

This other girl that started there a few months ago, he hit on, and got rejected ("She said to him, you're a fucking creep").
Now, every day, at every break and lunch, her and hang out together.
Haven't kissed her yet, but have grabbed her ass several times, and she just smiles.

I REALLY, REALLY hope this doesn't become a trend.


TLDR: my ex GF is a fucking cunt, but I found another one already.
Quote by bradulator
my boss sent me a friend request on facebook 😩 😩 😩 😩 😩

Could have been worse.
Could have been on Tinder.
I already posted that elsewhere on this forum.
I'm no gonna double post it. if you are interested, look for it.
Its pretty fucked up.
I do have one thing to say in her defense.
When her mother died about 2 months ago.
She didn't act sad, didn't cry.
After a few weeks, she started to a little bit, but after the service, she broke.
She's still history though. She may never fix herself.
And the bitch just sent me an email bitching at me for doing that Missing Persons report.
The deputy stopped by my house today.
Told him I had emailed and texted her, but not talked.
So he took her phone number, and I guess he called her.
Ungrateful bitch. 
At least someone cared enough when she didn't show up as we agreed upon, while using my car, and didn't call to do something.
Its like trying to herd cats.
Quote by Ippon
Just dump her, obviously; but, don't spoil everything for her.

Don't call the insurance. Be the better person and just forgive her.

Forgive?
Not just yet.
In time, maybe. Her smile was always intoxicating to me.
Didn't call the insurance.
And I didn't go to her PO.
She fucked up her life bad enough by herself. I don't really need to do anymore.
She put 458 miles on that car. Then she says, "no way, I just went to doctor, doctor, attorney, doctor".
Blocked her phone, then emailed her and told her, if she wants to keep her word, she can put that $541.21 in my Paypal account.
Didn't try it in my effects loop.

But...

IN: From guitar
DEC OUT: Effects loop send
DEC IN: Effects Loop return
OUT: To amp.     
            
You want BEFORE time based effects like delays.
I thought so too.

Also sent her this email:
 
 
I know your phone wasn't lost.
See the little advertisement about Verizon at the end of this email?
You got one too. See below.
"Powered by cricket wireless".

Nan sold you out too. (I talked to her Saturday and sunday).
She told me you called her Saturday, and you also told all your sisters that you were ok.
Nan also said that you said "I'm somewhere where no one can find me". She said you sounded like you were having a good time.
She also said that she told you that you should tell me that you were ok because I was very worried about you.

And  your attorney's assistant said it could be months before I see any of  that money that you owe me since the court case could take months.
I did you a HUGE favor, you stabbed me in the back, then twisted the knife with your multiple lies.
And since I can't trust your word anymore I went to your attorney's office with the  rental invoice myself.
(Your  attorney's assistant said it could be months, not 24 hours before I get  financially reimbursed),

Don't give to many details about what's going on in your life to someone you plan on screwing over.

And I'm not done yet.
I've had a fun week.
This is really long. Dave_MC level length (without all the quotes).

Cool.
We have a model X in the lobby right now.
In the videos and pictures, I wasn't to impressed with its looks.
But in person, its actually looks pretty cool.

I can get a used S for like $38k

Haven't really check the used prices on other models much.
I was talking to my supervisor a few months ago and he showed the internal site.
Prices were not to bad.
A little out of my budget ATM though.
But I'm applying for a Maintenance Tech position.
I talked a lot with the senior Maintenance Tech (Now an Engineering Tech, which left a spot open) often and I've talked about my experience doing that kind of work. And they give me access to the Maintenance dept. tools when I need them.
He recommended me to his boss.
Its about $4hr. more than what I get now.
And I've been doing a little testing and repairing some Powerwall components the last few weeks. So thats another plus.

Quote by donender
For better or worse.

Also, I always used to think Henry Rollins was just an angry, one dimensional dickhead who thought he could be a prick to people because he was a big guy. Again, I've seen some interviews with him since then, and taken time to listen to his music and spoken word stuff, and he actually seems like an insightful, well rounded dude. The way he talks and thinks about things can actually be pretty inspirational.

I agree completely there with Henry Rollins.
Insightful, well rounded, and quite intelligent.
I have a way more respect for him than I used to.

Another one is Ted Nugent.
Now, keep in mind, I'm 57 so I was 16 or so when his album Cat Scratch Fever came out.
I even cut school that day and traveled 40 miles to hear it for the first time (I lived in the mountains of Mariposa, California, Bee Gees was the best we could get up there).
I grew up with the music in that era and still love it (I think Stranglehold, Great White Buffalo, Dog Eat Dog, and Free For All are his best tunes).

But I really think he should just keep his fucking mouth shut when he talks politics.

Worn out volume control pot?
You turn it to 1, and it sounds like 5?
Does the volume continue to increase when you keep turning it up or does it stay steady as you turn it up. And maybe at some point near 5 it starts to increase again?

If we killed them we could eat them and finally know what humans taste like without having to go to jail

Or we could make them pets and be total perverts

I'll go with the pet option.

Would they be in the same way as we see dogs?
Like would they lick peanut butter off of whatever body part you put it on?
