>> No. 391031
When I was in basic we learned how to use those. The difference between those and >>391018 is that this new thing is made to properly fill the puncture, whereas those hemostatic pads would have to be layered, have a lot more air/escape routes, and take a lot longer. This stuff will close off blood escape routes far faster and more reliably. Even at $100/pop, these things will save more than enough soldiers to make them worth their weight in gold.

Yeah but it's not as if every wound can be filled with a dildo, that's pretty much just for pistol rounds and very tiny shrapnel. Every rifle round will do a through and through, or cause massive trauma that can't be dealt with using that device. Larger shrapnel, tears from blast force, grenade blasts.... I'm not saying it's not worth the money, just that it doesn't really solve the issue of wounds on the battlefield, the article talks about it as though from now on soldiers won't have to worry about being shot.
>> No. 391043
I don't think you get this, they are sponges, if the wound is through and through they simply fill in everything from front to back.

If the wound isn't fatal and bleeding out this is the best solution for an immediate life saving tool.

So my best friend, probably my only "close" friend right now, is getting married in May (I'll be a groomsman.) Two things we've always has a shared interest for are Transformers and Legos. So, as a wedding gift, I'm going to give them a Transformer and a Lego set. Each will have a card: The Transformer card will talk about how they will combine to form a greater unit than each of them could be separately or will change over the years to be better than what we see on the outside (depends on what I get him.) The Lego set will have a card about them building a life together, and how they can choose to follow the instructions given by others they should toss those aside and do as they please if the nerve strikes them.

And a single fork. It's part inside joke (I once tried to stab my friend in the hand with a fork), part practical gift (just in case no one else gets them forks; but only one, they'll have to share.)

I should ask /toy/ what the best of each would be to give.

Left him a love note under one of his 40k models. Well, not so much a love note as a "thank you for being such a supportive boyfriend during such a shitty period in my life, I love you and love spending time with you" note.

I hope he finds it this week but I suppose it depends on if he plays this week. If not this week at least before his birthday this month. It's not like it's urgent.

I was too nervous to hand it to him directly or leave it out in the open. Which is silly, he already knows how I feel but... I wanted to write a letter. Last time I wrote something I went to throw it away but he took it and kept it. I'd rather him have something more positive.

You think it's kinda fucked up that if someone lives long enough, they can forget about past loves? I don't mean because of senility or any other mental disease ravaging their brain. But that after an indeterminate length of time passes, someone might just forget about that girl or boy they used to like back in middle school, simply because they aren't important anymore. I think it only just dawned on me that since love is just like any other form of mutual emotion between peoples its endurance is tied to its strength, and weak relationships will be forgotten just as they were broken apart due to that weakness.
>> No. 391175

It's kinda the same with "bad" relationships, too.

I know for a fact that I had friends in school that I eventually drove away by "being me", which often segued into those now-ex-friends becoming people who'd make fun of me/bully me.

Thing is, after more than a decade away from school, I can't even remember any of those people's names, let alone their faces or voices or whatever. Sure, I remember a few of my old schoolmates (if just by name) because they played some major role in shaping the person I would become, but I don't remember them well (usually just by name or a vague recollection of appearance).

That's life. Life, in and of itself, is fucked up. Get used to it.

Apparently, A&E used to have a series about convicts trying to scare would-be-convicts straight, and one tactic was pissing in a guy's mouth or something (?!), and he managed to catch that episode. It was just hilarious how he instantly made that connection, and this guy is kinda stupid.

Fuck. Quick recap: My folks bought a home north of me but can't move in until the Fall so I was going to live there in the meantime so it wasn't empty.

Today my mom contacted me and told me that the people currently living there still won't have their new house complete before their move out day (they had already arranged to continue living there until the end of May, but now it's extended beyond that.) What's more, my dad (pastor) has got a call to a church south of here, much further away, and if he accepts (he's here right now visiting with them, I think, before making the decision) then he'll live in their parsonage. My folks will still buy the home and just rent it out; problem is, it's highly unlikely I could afford the rent (looks like the area goes for 50-100% more than I pay right now.) I think he's going to accept, too, unless something really goes wrong during his visit.

Which is great for them, but I was looking forward to having a place completely to myself, if only for two or three months. Then I'd have a few months rent free as I waited for a room in my current place to open back up. I even started packing already (just one box today; but in the past I usually don't pack until the very last week so that was a change).

She said I could probably live in the (apparently large) basement, but it's even further from work than my last place was. While I could use the $600, it's not worth living in my parent's basement again with a longer commute.
>> No. 391204

I mostly wanted to say something because I don't feel like talking about the stuff or hearing his bullshit. Personally, I don't care if he does crash and burn because the dude is full of himself for no reason and has his head way, way up his ass sometimes. This goes far beyond the subject of just women, too. Dude needs a hard reality check (and I've given him one before) but I'm not sure if I'm the one to do it this time, and honestly, I don't know if I have the energy to keep doing it. You can blame part of this on him being really argumentative and I'm not in the mood to constantly get into arguments with friends.

He's also really desperate and probably pushy (which likely surprises no one). He's probably just really horny or whatever but will never admit to it, as much as he was pretending he was into his last girlfriend. It was a very self-absorbed relationship from what I understood.

You shouldn't worry about others' approval for what hobbies make you happy. If you had fun with the Bionicle and LEGO, you didn't "waste" anything. Life's too short to live it for other people, 13. As long as it doesn't hurt others, do what pleases you.
Feeling guilty for your pleasures won't make you have "better" taste, you'll just keep being upset for being who you are. And that's stupid.
Have fun, even if it's nerdy shit for dumb gay babies.

>> No. 391390

Alla that first bit. If someone makes you feel ‘guilty’ about enjoying a movie, book, piece of music, videogame or other form of entertainment/hobby, that someone wants to make themselves feel better about their own tastes (and make themselves feel better about their own life choices, by extension).

Sheeeeeeeeeeit, I still listen to a handful of fuckin’ Debbie Gibson songs on a fairly regular basis and watch pro wrestling at least once a week — but no one will ever make me feel guilty about those things.

If you like Legos, play with Legos. If you like My Little Pony, enjoy watching the technicolor pones. So long as you don't try to force your tastes upon others and don't hurt anyone with your hobbies/etc., you have nothing — AND THE ROCK MEANS NOTHING — over which to feel guilty and you have no reason to let others dictate your choices for entertainment and hobbies.

It's been out almost two years and only just broke 2 million.

To put that in perspective, what Microsoft intended to instantly replace Windows 7 with and being the new world leader of both phone and computer OS and was a shitty jerk to all their customers about is selling about as well as DmC which in two years has also managed about 2 million and pre-boot could sell 4 million for a joke in a week.

What touchscreen shit? You mean the fact that it works with a touchscreen? Because that doesn't seem like a flaw as much as it seems like a feature that you don't personally give a shit about.
>> No. 391462
For mobile it's wonderful, stapling it to PC however? one of the stupidest things they've ever done and they know it.
>> No. 391465
How so? I've used Windows 8 pretty much since it came out, and never even notice the touchscreen stuff on my non-touchscreen devices. And the fact that I can use the same software on my Surface that I use on my PC is very handy when I want to use it as a mobile sketchpad or something--way better than using an iPad where I'm stuck with the Apple walled garden, or even the more open Android platform where the main limitation is lack of software rather than lack of freedom. It doesn't, and never has, forced you to use the touchscreen.

How does having an extra feature that you don't need actually hurt your experience any? Or is it just a case of "different is bad?"
>> No. 391467
It's a case of failed, the touch screen merger is best represented by Metro which is terrible, setting up your device to revolve around touch screen for devices that aren't touch screen is bad.

The central problem we're talking about with Windows 8 is usability, the ease of use and learning to use.

When Windows 8 came out it crashed other companies because it is the definition of an OS with bad usability, so when you say "different is bad"

You are right, different is a fucking nightmare that destroys business, different is something Microsoft DEEPLY regrets to the point of literally undoing it in all future updates.

Because it was BAD CHANGE, ie my earlier DmC comparison.

But here are some articles that do a much better job on why it's such a clusterfuck that windows employees are calling it "The new vista."






TLDR merging OS systems was sloppy, poorly planned, financially disastrous, damaging to business and they know it and are trying to fix it.

You know you dun fucked up when people are buying more copies of 7 than ever before to "upgrade" back to seven.
>> No. 391469
You have to admit there's really nothing new that Windows 8 offers over Windows 7 for a desktop.

>> No. 391470
I recently built a new PC, and made the jump to 8.1.

Gave Metro a chance. Spent 20 minutes using it, and I can honestly say those were some of the most infuriating moments in my life. Installed Classic Shell (blessed be those guys who made it!) and now I don't have to suffer thorough that bullshit that covers the SO. It is really that terrible.
>> No. 391471
Again though, you're not required to use Metro. I don't. All of my apps have desktop versions, and I run the desktop versions for pretty much all of them--though I admit that the metro versions of Skype and Lync make for a better user experience than the desktop versions, I just don't use either enough to justify it.

On the other hand, what I get out of it is--quicker launching of the apps I want--I hit the start button then I either hit the button for the program I want to launch (assuming it's not on my task bar), or I start typing the name and hit enter once it's enough that Windows knows what I want to launch. I had to install Launchy to do that reliably in older versions of Windows. For the few that I *do* use regularly, the big tiles make it quicker to locate the program I want to run (Pin Steam, for example, makes for the best experience I've had for launching games--but that requires a third party app).

I can keep only my most used items on the start screen, without having to lose my ability to access them in the "all apps" screen, which I would if I tried to simplify my Start Menu in earlier versions of Windows.

Search functionality is faster and more reliable. And the move/copy dialog is far and away better than it has ever been. The alt-tab dialog is better. I can get to system management features faster by just right clicking the bottom left of the screen. And despite these enhancements, it runs quicker than Windows 7 on the same machines, much like how Windows 7 ran quicker than Windows XP (and yes, I'm comparing them even with the knowledge that a fresh install is going to have less junk on it clogging up performance).

So yeah, I'm not seeing any of the usability issues you're talking about. It mostly still sounds like whining about change.

To those that offered to help out:
1) Thank you
2) There's a janitor recruitment thread in new/baw/ (and it would only be for the new set of boards, not this current set). No fancy form like the motherboard uses, but you can toss your hat in the ring.

Hiding it doesn't remove the image from your browser cache, though; and, with the way our world goes apeshit over CP, having just that single image can land you in huge shit. Not that child porn isn't a serious and real problem, but if a community or police force gets a hint that you've seen any CP image they will turn against you now and forever. Even if you can prove your innocence, even if you were a blind man, you will forever be considered a pedophile and social pariah.

> I hope someone is reporting this shit to a government agency or something
Pfft. The FBI won't do shit unless you have something far more substantial than a single image, that has been partially-clothed half the time, to a URL that is almost certainly a virus. I'm sure they're already aware of it; the NSA has tipped them off if nothing else. If we tried to contact them directly they would just hound the hell out of us. At best we could give them a list (I already posted an image with some) of the IPs we've banned that are certainly proxies, compromised computers, or tor exits, and they probably already have everything on that list.

At best, with our cooperation they might be able to go after the URL shorteners used in the images, but those are a dime-a-dozen and can be used for legit purposes as well.

Potentially. Just a lone CP image in your cache can be enough for them to give you hell over.
