Coke removes bloodstains. (The soft drink, not the drug.)

Re: More Stuff

Well, there was a time in 8th grade (the 2001-2002 school year) where we had a short course on using a sewing machine, and we were supposed to make a drawstring bag, but I've forgotten how to set up and use one. Unfortunately, I didn't get to make the bag and got a bad grade because my parents ignor...

Re: More Stuff

Looks like I'm going to have to learn how to use mom's sewing machine. I checked the stitching on my 10'x10' tarp, and... It's terrible. It's all single stitched with thread that looks pretty thin, and the lazy turd at the factory didn't even properly tie knots at the end of the threads, so there's ...

Re: Medical care in the Wapsiverse...

Well, there are much larger animals not known for eating meat, like rhinos, hippos, and elephants, so it's entirely plausible that they could have a vegan or vegetarian diet. However, I suspect it would make more sense for them to be omnivorous, so they could more easily get as much food as they need.

Re: More Stuff

Yeah. It was pretty much just people selling stuff that was mostly overpriced. In other news, I managed to get a shift and start date scheduled at the Amazon warehouse. I'm expecting to start on the 6th. However, I have several other active applications, and I'm gonna keep looking anyway, so I can f...

I'm at the Arkansas Comic Convention with my sister's oldest kid. I'd never been to a convention before now, and I learned something really important about conventions:

They're boring as hell.

Re: More Stuff

Well, since it seems to be a pain in the butt to get anyone to hire me, I'm strongly considering becoming a substitute teacher. My mom does it, and apparently it's really easy to do, and she decides what days she goes in to sub teach... Which most of the time has just been babysitting. If I can do t...

Re: More Stuff

I tried OpenShot, and I couldn't find anything like a record button, and anything I recorded with OBS wouldn't have the audio when I previewed it using OpenShot.

I might try Lightshot later today. I can't do it right this second because I have a hiring event to go to.

Re: More Stuff

Does anyone know of a good video editing software that is free and easy to use and figure out without needing to wade through a ton of different videos that are actually irrelevant?

Folks have recommended OBS, but OBS is only for recording and streaming, not editing, and I need to record and edit.

Oragel makes one (white bottle, red label), and you can also use a 50/50 mix of water and hydrogen peroxide.

Re: Trivia - i don't know why

My brother's father in law was on duty as a radio operator in the military the night that ship sank. I'd also been to one of the light houses up there, and one of them had one of the life rings from that ship on display.

Re: More Stuff

One of my wisdom teeth needs to be removed. It's been causing me a fair amount of pain the past couple of weeks, but I couldn't get anything done about it because I was in Ohio, seeing folks I haven't seen since 2011.

Re: Frisky Putty 2021-06-17

Either Cass is gonna get to third base, or she's playing a joke on her girlfriend.

I don't see either of these as bad outcomes. (Unless she does the former without consent, but I doubt that would be the case.)

As a general rule, I don't expect wisdom from teens. Hell, I don't often see it from adults, so these kids are batting way above average for most of their decisions.

There's also the possibility that Shawna is gonna mention something important that Scarlett was supposed to be doing, instead of farting around with Cass. Or she'll say something about Cass needing a cold shower later, which might not be sufficient. There's also the possibility that Shawna is aware ...

Yeah, there is that part. Although, at the same time, it's my understanding that smoke columns from three fires are generally recognized as a distress signal, as well as three shots from a rifle. I don't know if they need to be repeated a certain number of times at specific intervals, though. Howeve...

I've never been to the desert, but I've been storing them in a small Plano field box, which will definitely fit in my rucksack and any of my smaller backpacks (a Vizm first responder bag, a Drago assault pack, and a Brandit 3-day bag...
