Do you have someone you could talk to about how you feel? If the symptoms go away in less than 2 weeks, maybe then you were just having a hard time for a little while.

yes, fortunately I have been talking to my brothers and they have supported me, I think it is nothing serious and it is only a difficult moment, Thank you for worry

After playing quake sometimes I just have the urge to HUH when I jump or whenever I do something that requires some physical effort.

 

Yeah, it's weird and I don't play quake as much as I play other games but the jumping sound is stuck on my head.

I used to regularly flirt with this girl until one day I found out that she was going out with someone with the same name as me.

Last night someone sent me a dick pic and wanted to see me naked. I barely even know this person. Then after refusing to send nudes, he asks me for a date in a cafe. Kinda wrong order. But what can you expect from random people off the street who come talk. So far everyone of them has been creepy and has just wanted sex.

I like Tarantulas and I have no problem to touch them, feed them, clean up my terrariums etc... But somehow, a couple of common domestic house spiders like Tegenaria or any other cellar spiders which are far smaller and less dangerous freak me out,- even disgust me. Never understood this paradoxon. 

 

Another one: I'm afraid of heights, climbing big ladders and lookout towers can be a pain in the ass for me but I don't mind flying by plane or chopper. Really weird...

 

I once escaped death in 1998 because I forgot to feed my pets. I wanted to spend a weekend at my grandparents house back then. On my way to the trainstation it came to my mind that I had forgotten to feed my pets. I didn't want them to starve the whole weekend, so I returned home immediately. I simply took another train with a different route later. One day later, it turned out that exactly the train I was supposed to ride on the first time derailed and crashed into a road bridge. More than hundred people died due to that horrible accident and a lot of others got injured very badly. It still gives me chills thinking about that after all this time. My pets probably saved my life.

My new benchpress record: 57.5kg once and with 55kg 3 repeats. About year ago I did 10 repeats with 55kg, but now I wonder if the safety person back then helped me lift it, instead of only helping me lift it if I absolutely couldn't lift it. Back then I couldn't get 60kg up even once and needed help. 5kg shouldn't make that big difference.

I have the unexplainable habit of staring at profile pictures that just so happen to capture my attention, even if the said image doesn't appeal to me for any specific reason.

Ever since Megaton Edition released, I've done a playthrough of Duke: Nuclear Winter in December, every year. Even though it's terrible.

 

Please help me.

and when we got back home I fell and landed my hand right on the exhaust pipe. yoinks

Depending on whose posts I read, I tend to read them in text-to-speech (Daniel).

 

I've been reading my posts in that voice almost exclusively as of late rofl, and I dunno why.

I was arrested for stealing from Tower Records when I was 16 and convicted with a felony. Put on probation and eventually went to a continuation school with Jason Richter (Free Willy) and Lana Davies (daughter of Dave Davies from the band The Kinks). It's a long story (for a forum post) and there is quite a bit involved. Therapy, anti-depressants, a friend who was murdered by her boyfriend and poppy seed cake that my Grandma made being the cause of a failed drug test, extending my probation and sending a few other events in motion. I'm writing a short story about it currently, which I intend to also make a screenplay of.

I bought a new mechanical keyboard after using the same Logitech one for over 12 years. Some of the buttons were no longer functioning properly, especially around the WASD region.

Funny, I was thinking about buying a mechanical keyboard when my current one dies. I wonder how long will it take for me to get used to it, I've heard these buttons are pretty hard to press, and what I experienced with a friend's seems to confirm this - it was quite annoying to type anything on it.

 

Speaking of which, my current keyboard is over 6yrs old I think, and it still works like a charm. I've only replaced one keyboard all those years, they seem to last a very long time if you don't abuse them or don't take the cheap route. Mice, on the other hand, give me grief, I change them almost on a yearly basis - my current mouse's wheel is semi-broken for reference, for a pretty long time too. It kinda still works, but only when it wants to... and I have no money whatsoever to replace it, I need a new PSU first... this, kids, is just one of the reason why you should NEVER buy pre-built computers... They. Do. Not. Last.

I got one with red switches, which I don't find much different to press compared to my old regular keyboard. Various types of switches require different amounts of pressure to register a click, usually ranging from 45-60 grams. Mine is 45, but going higher may be less comfortable to type on at first. Here's an article with some tables which highlight the difference between switches.

I still use a Microsoft Wheel Mouse Optical 1.1a from over 10 years ago. Those who played Q3 back in the day may remember this legend.

I haven't had much luck with their cheap ones. The two I've used in the past several years died within a year of me using it. Meanwhile, the Microsoft internet keyboard I'm typing on has been trucking on for nearly 20 years.

Yeah, I don't like how mice malfunction much sooner than they should, especially with "gamer" models. I don't know if it's poor QC or planned obsolescence? I've had to open my Logitech G500 several times for the 8 years I've had it, including just a few days ago when the RMB went super fucky. I don't have the cash to spring for a newer 502, not when it has the same issue with the mouse buttons phantom clicking or not being able to drag-and-drop. On-the-fly DPI, adjustable weights, all those marketing gimmicks mean nothing when the mouse doesn't even perform its basic functions.

 

Your mousewheel may be clogged up with dust and hair. A can of duster might help, or tweezers if you feel like opening up your mouse.

 

Yeah a good PSU is vital to a computer, and learning that lesson gave me a lot of anguish with my first custom computer. The guy who put it together didn't understand why my computer kept crashing when I was playing games on it and thought the video card was overheating. I eventually found out the el cheapo PSU that came with my case was even worse than the one that came with the HP Pavilion my family got a few months prior.

Man, I had a mouse that looked similar to it with a button on each side. That was so great for internet browsing and binding in games. Had so much fun in Counter-Strike and TFC with that mouse, until el cheapo PSU crashed the party and my computer.

No it's broken, it basically went into this semi-broken state after a month of use...

 

It's probably planned obsolescence, so that people will keep on buying more and come to expect that it's normal. No, it's not, the original mouse that came with my previous PC lasted for almost a decade, and I only replaced it because it got so god damn ugly due to years of use. I've changed a ton of mice, and none seems to last long... Sure, the plus side of thes mice is that they have on-the-fly DPI which is really useful, but it eventually turns into little more than a gimmick if the product malfunctions after such a short period of time...

 

As about the PSU, well again, that's just what happens when you buy pre-builts. Perhaps in other parts of the world they're better but here, buying pre-builds is synonymous with following bad practices. They're notorious for being overpriced and of overall less quality (and more also unstable). I've already replaced 2 components in an otherwise 3 years old PC... first the big cooler broke after cca. 3 months, then after another 3 the first PSU broke (it started sounding like a revving engine), and now, after another year and a half, the second PSU suffers from the same issue. The noise is virtually identical so I assume what the bastards at the warranty service did was just toss the old one and replace it with the exact same shit. I didn't have to pay for it back then, but the warranty is over now, so I have to buy one myself... and right now I've got no money for another...
