  1. Pro it is tough I get it. I have had four cats in my life and all of them have meant the world to me. My first one was really sick when he was six. We did all we could to keep him alive, but it became unfair to him and us. We made the decision to euthanize him. As I was driving him to the vet, he had a seizure and died in my arms on the side of the road. 

    So I get your apprehension to put your guy through the whole vet routine. I guarantee if you do a search for at home euthanasia, you will find several in your area that will come to you. Just reading your posts, it seems like this would be the best route for you personally,  so you don’t have to live with the pain of having to do that your friend.

    This is how I usually handle it. While I can and have done this I was looking for another way. It's one of the most difficult things I have done and leaves a mark on your soul. Shooting your best friend even when you know it is the right thing to do is not easy. Right now the best outcome for me would be that he pass away tonight while we are watching the baseball game. That is one of his favorite things to do with me. Chill, watch baseball, eat some snacks,nap. I'm really hoping for a natural passing here.

    I am not trying to be an ###, but putting my 20 year old cat down last year was one of the worst things I have ever done--especially since I held him as he passed--but what sucked equally is getting a new kitten 8 months later and having to put  this little thing down right away because he had FIP.

    Man, I appreciate what you are going through, but what you are doing is borderline animal cruelty. Your best friend is suffering--call an in-home service to euthanize him. If you can't afford it, bottom line you can't afford having a pet. They are compassionate and most work with you.

    Give him the decency and respect he deserves--no not deserves--he earned.

    Hang in there, pro....:(

  3. Off-topic, my 14 year old daughter is an old soul. She just doesn't act like a teenager and has always "got" things when others are just oblivious. She recently has developed a love for 50's and 60's music specially doo-wop music like the Skyliners, the Platters or Frankie Lymon. I got her a pretty cool all in one record player from Victrola. We have been hitting all the used music shops around town buying old LPs.  It has just been a great time. She picked up Bill Haley and the Comets, Frankie Avalon and a surprisingly good copy of Abby Road last week. 

    What prompted me to post was I showed her American Graffiti and of course Wolf Man's famous part in that. We have not found that soundtrack LP yet--but we did find More American Graffiti.

    That's 3.75 billion people gone in an instant if it's precisely 50%. That's a lot of people. But it's not like it was evenly distributed across the universe. There could be more gone from Earth than other places.

    Well that would make sense because Hawkeye’s whole family was gone. Just the one scene with Ant man, he is walking down the street and there were abandon cars everywhere and  all he finds is one kid on a bike.So that explanation makes sense. 

    Again wasn’t trying to nitpick because we really did enjoy the movie and will be seeing it again

    Mine wasnt full of loud emotion. At the obvious moments it was so quiet it was eerie.

    The loudest was by far when Cap got mjolnir.  Stan Lee got a long ovation too.

    Saw it today with my daughter—XD theater fairly  well attended. You had one group of fans who wanted to cheer and comment and then you had several other groups who were screaming at them to shut up. Really thought a brawl was about to go down.

    We both enjoyed the movie a lot and we haven’t seen most of the previous movies.

    The only small nitpick I had was why did the world look like most everyone had died? I mean driving home tonight in a Traffic jam, my daughter and I were like this would still be a traffic jam even if 50% of the cars were gone. During the CA support group scene there was like five people and outside there was trash  blowing in the street.  It was like a ghost town. 

    Just a great movie overall and can’t wait to see it again 


  6. Okay an hour in--wife and daughter are home so I have to stop and cook dinner.

    Nice graphics..

    I hate to judge a game on controls too early on, but the first motorcycle ride was a cluster for me.. I am an old man, so I just need practice I guess.

    Feels like RDR2 with the skill/crafting wheel

    The battles have been forgiving so far--so hope the learning curve doesn't get much steeper. I hate multi-button mashers.

    Small complaints so far:

    WTF on the storyline? You have to hook your players in that intro and there was nothing there--just a Sons of Anarchy meets TWD feel, but what is going on? I hope they fill in the pieces here. I just don't care about the main guy or his quest yet?

    Open world means everything should be able to be searched--so I hope that improves.

     

    I debated between this and World War Z-even though they are different birds for sure.

  7. I say possible only for the fact, that some people immediately turn the station when they hear a certain type of song come on. 

    My BIL is a redneck--pickup driving. gun loving hick. I caan guarantee any song that isn't country comes on, he is turning it off after the first note. 

    Maybe our imaginary guy the OP is referencing hears that "Dum, da Dum da Dum" first beat of the song and turns the channel.

    Yeah this is how it usually goes

    someone comes up with a proposal to spend X to eliminate Y workers.  Payback probably 1-3 years

    then the proposal gets up through finance and C-level and nobody wants to invest in the upfront capital because that would cause them to underperform that quarter and it might affect their bonus

    I think there is truth in this before--however, with the demand for increased minimum wage, the upfront capital becomes palatable.

    You can see the transition slowly happening everywhere around you--the Walmart near me already had self-checkouts, but now they have taken out more full-service registers and gone with self-scan type aisles. Movie theaters were already moving towards kiosks to buy tickets. The biggest thing I have seen is in the last week both the McDonalds and Taco Bell have installed order kiosks.. They have one employee to help customers who pay cash, hand out drink cups and hand out food. Boom, the need for three employees has just been reduced to one.

    Probably doesn't matter anyways.  This isn't like college basketball where players aren't great FT shooters.

    Denver still doesn't impress me.  Portland might able to get the upset.

    They very well may, but this playoff thing is a whole new world for the Nuggets. I am glad it is a quick turnaround so they don't lose any edge they may have. Maybe it is the 8 beers, but if Houston takes an injured GS out, there is a shot (albeit small) the Nugs could find themselves in an NBA final.  

    My wife and I were dying over the press-conference with Pops--those reporters were terrified to ask him a question.
