    Super Bowl?

  2. The AWM because of Counter-Strike and ever since crickett came out with their .22 single shot look alike I've been real tempted to get it. I don't care if it's marketed for kids. The Steyr AUG partly because of Counter-Strike but more because of Die Hard. Speaking of Die Hard I guess I have to include the MP5. I don't love it as much as I used to, but it is one that really drew me into the hobby. One of the first firearms i started to recognize and point out by name. I learned about how good looking the Five-seveN was in Counter-Strike, and after getting a bit more interested in firearms I learned about its unique cartridge. Yes, there is a never ending debate on whether it is the most badass gun ever created or the biggest pile of crap, without any opinion in between. But I don't care if its super effective on black ops missions or not, I just love that its sexy and unique. Definitely the H&K USP. Again I got familiar with it in Counter-Strike, but it was Jack Bauer that made me love it and want one. Yes. I played http://www.imfdb.org/wiki/Counter-Strike a lot. And lastly, the first one that wasn't featured in Counter-Strike, and also the one that I first looked up the price of and finally looked up the process to buying a firearm in NJ (and subsequently found you people) was the Walther PPK. Although I referred to it as the Bond gun and I guess? that was my inspiration for liking it so much... he always used a black one and I really wanted a stainless one. And which was I able to get? Not a single one. MP5 and AUG are banned by name in NJ, AWM is what $2,000 at least? five seven is also out of my league. The only affordable ones on the list were the PPK but when I was buying my first handgun I wanted a full size 9mm, and the USP but it was almost twice the price of the Ruger SR9 that I picked out instead.

    Need PC advice from a computer guru

    https://www.newegg.com/ and amazon both usually have very comparable prices to Microcenter. Microcenter's open box discounts are great, and they usually have a nice $30-$50 discount for buying a CPU/motherboard combo. but even still my most recent build i still got my video card from amazon cause it was cheaper. To overheat before its finished booting with an SSD? Completely without a cooler? I google'd it and some people say 10 seconds other say 2-3 minutes. Some say they do it and it lasts long enough to boot into BIOS and check settings. What else to consider though, is if it was loose and it did cause overheating especially multiple times then it might have done some damage. I mean shutting down is its fail safe to prevent damage, but if you push its limits... I had a similar experience but my problem was my SSD. My pc shut off for seemingly no reason a few times and I would turn it back on until i got a missing boot device error. Then I opened my SSD and saw some ugly burn marks that probably weren't there yet the first time it shut down on me...

    Metallica/A7X/Volbeat Metlife 5/14

    i can take or leave volbeat. saw them twice so far and theyre pretty good live for those who like them a7x i used to love back in 04 when i saw them at warped tour. at rock allegiance in PA last year they didnt do much for me. after city of evil i feel like they lost whatever made them special and everything after sounds average and mediocre. and last year they played maybe 3-4 songs i actually knew. so meh i can enjoy seeing them but not thrilled like i would have been some years back. and speaking of missing that special something hardwired just doesnt feel like a metallica album. it has some balls here and there but its just not got that metallica magic to it. but hey its still decent plus im sure the legends will be playing tons of other songs i know and love. id go depending on price. ticketmaster says 60-160 not including their BS "we have a monopoly so we charge you 15 bucks for doing absolutely nothing" fees. and since we kind of swore off cheaping out and not getting floor tickets anymore cause everytime we have to sit in the stands we regret it the whole time it means im probably looking at 160+. way way way more important to me is getting to see Sabaton in NYC on April 21st. They're my favorite and I've yet to see them live. I've gotta find someone who will go or I may well go myself. I don't want to miss them at all, but especially now that they are actually headlining.

    My daughter drew a gun and no one lost their mind.

    this is pretty much the same thing that I was thinking which is the keltec KSG. its funny its like an ink blot test. everyone sees something different.

    Pumpkin Beer - Love It, Hate It?

    pumpkin beers are just fine, but it's finally time (despite not even being thanksgiving yet) to make way for the good stuff. yes, i've waited all year but winter is finally here. at least according to beer companies. stouts and porters everywhere. my first of the season is a new (new to me anyway idk if they have made it before) magic hat stout with vanilla. delicious. tastes like Christmas, which evidently starts before thanksgiving this year.

    Savage 320 Security vs Mossberg Maverick 88

    I've had my maverick 88 for a bit more than a year, and it has been flawless thus far. To be fair I know 1 year isn't a long time for a guns life, and on top of that I'm a pretty big noob.. but still for what it's worth I am very happy with my purchase.

    Computer help, Desktop

    Sounds a lot like what happened when my SSD died last year. Started with a random freeze/crash and looking for boot device error. Gave it a half hour and it booted back into Windows finally and seemed fine. Good lord do I regret my stupidity here. This was my warning sign, my chance to back everything up. Well I ignored it and within a week it crashed again and this time I would get this error screen: My SSD was playing hide and seek with me, trying to get it to come up in boot devices or loading windows on another HDD and checking devices. But nothing could ever access the SSD nor get it to boot ever again. Friend of mine opened it up: Something (the controller?) fried. If i remember correctly (this was a year ago) It would have still been under OCZ's warranty but because they sold the company, the new company stopped honoring all warranties about a month before this happened. Lost all my personal files, couldn't even get a replacement, and when I was trying to fix my SSD I tilted my desktop and forgot to unplug my 2TB external I used for storage... USB cord tugged it off my desk and it smacked the wood floor hard. Lost everything on that too. It was a really bad day. Circling back though, what brand is your SSD? Because OCZ makes/made COMPLETE GARBAGE. Well regardless of brand it still sounds like a SSD failure. Like others suggested, do what you can to change whatever variables you can. Try SSD in another computer, try a different SSD/HDD with windows in this computer. Unplug anything unnecessary. Anything that can narrow down the root of the problem so you can be 100% sure, but I'd bet in the end a failing SSD will be the culprit.

    Pokemon Go

    ^ that comic is very true. i mean admittedly once you get in the 20s things get harder to catch to begin with but now with this recent update its like this in any case. screenshot no more. this website is amazing. it even tells you the IV's of your pokemon. currently at caught 117, but if you check out my candy youll see im about to add at least 9 new ones as soon as i decide i have enough stuff to evolve for a half hour straight, making my last lucky egg worth while. https://www.pogoprofiles.com/u/Wavecaster97 (cant seem to get the site to load in google chrome. maybe just me? works fine in IE though) also if you see any random numbers in their names it was when i was using https://pokeassistant.com/ to try to calculate their IV % and put it in their nicknames so i woudlnt forget. wasted effort now with the help of this website.

    Pokemon Go

    ive heard this one too and i absolutely refuse to believe it. thats simply not how the game works, there is NOT a Z-axis there is literally no reason climbing a tree would help you catch something. perhaps the person happened to be playing while also thinking it would be cool to climb a tree? even the dumbest of people cant possibly interpret the game in that way after playing it for more than 10 seconds. debate about that articles accuracy put aside, still in general there is about as much ignorance and misinformation being spread around about the game as with firearms these days. (perhaps with the help of an extremely few (5 or 6 out of 21,000,000+) people who are stupid/evil enough to make the news by grossly misusing the game but that only adds to the analogy) and a lot of that misunderstanding is turning into arrogance and hostility and demonizing the game. Sound like another hobby? one we all share? you'd think a community of gun owners wouldn't let themselves fall for that one after being the victims of it. ah well. moving on.. my highest stuff so far.. nothing over 1k yet but im getting close. ive got a bunch of things ready to evolve and a bunch of them should break the 1k mark but im waiting on another lucky egg to double all the exp from it. Should get two at lvl20 and im 19 now. soon.. also team mystic ftw.
