As quite a few people know I’m a tea addict. In fact I’m trying to replace my daily Gatorade consumption with tea, so I’ve been making attempts to ween myself off of the stuff. I don’t think I’ll completely rid myself of it but I want to try and cut down. Lately my freight loads haven’t had me drinking like a fish like when I first started. The joys of becoming more macho.
I bought a glass travel infuser, and I took it to work today with a nice cold brew of Mango Ceylon tea which lasted me the entire shift. The double walled glass design keeps it cool (or hot if you prefer) for quite sometime. I plan to do the same tomorrow as well with some Black Cherry tea. I might have to buy a spare depending on how well this plays out.
Originally when I tried to lookup if they had a website it didn’t exist, but now it seems they’ve established one as you can see from the link above. I’ll be looking forward to their new teas, and I may consider buying a few of their other products. The iced tea pitcher and some of the other mugs and infusers look pretty swank.
Considering this comes from Oklahoma you can color me not surprised…
Debating an Oklahoma bill that would outlaw abortion in cases of genetic abnormalities or Down syndrome, state Rep. George Faught (R) responded to a question about abortion in cases of rape or incest by confidently stating that in many biblical cases, God wanted women to get raped. Well, why didn’t Faught tell women who have been raped this comforting news sooner?
So god frowns upon abortion, but it’s perfectly ok for a woman to be raped. I wonder if he would feel the same way if this happened to someone close to him in his life. Or worse yet I wonder how he would feel about rape if it happened to him. I wonder how he would feel if his fate was to be unwillingly tied up while drugged and penetrated with a cucumber rolled in glue, salt and glass. Sorry, god works in mysterious ways! And he said you needed more veggies in your diet! He just didn’t say how…
Williams followed up: “Is incest the will of God?”
Told by Faught that his questions didn’t “deal with this bill,” Williams persisted, stating, “You won’t make any exceptions for rape, you won’t make any exceptions for incest in this and you are proffering divine intervention as the reason why you won’t do that. I think it is very important. This body wants to know, myself personally, whether you believe rape and incest are actually the will of God.”
“It’s a great question to ask, and, obviously if it happens in someone’s life, it may not be the best thing that ever happened,” responded Faught. “But, so you’re saying that God is not sovereign with every activity that happens in someone’s life and can’t use anything and everything in someone’s life, and I disagree with that.”
The sad part is that once the child is born these religious retards won’t give a flying fuck about their well being. They did gods work and that’s all that matters to them. Considering one of the topics they discussed was incest, which introduces numerous health issues, it would seem more cruel to bring a life into this world with such horrific problems that they would eventually pass away from than to have an abortion in the first place. But then these are the same people that could care less if poorer children aren’t able to have access to proper nutrition and healthcare.
I’m happy to have come home and found that the healthcare system wasn’t replaced by that anal leakage cespool of a proposal. This isn’t over yet, not by a longshot… They fought for 7 years to repeal the Affordable Healthcare Act and I’m sure the next 4 years won’t be any different. They won’t stop until they get what they want, the suffering of the middle class downward. This administration has made no bones showing they are at war with anyone who isn’t as rich, pale or religious as they are.
In the meantime I can rest knowing that for the time being my friends and family members who depend on it are safe for the time being.
Considering this bit of news and all of the high praise I’ve read/heard from friends I might actually have to buy a Wii-U copy to play once they get all the kinks worked out.
CEMU, an emulator that lets people play Wii U games on their PC, has come a long way since it struggled with Mario Kart 8: next month, it’ll be running the latest Zelda game in an entirely playable state.
And much like the article points out further in this is an unusual thing, getting a brand new AAA console title to run in an emulator takes a long time (look at the PS3 and Xbox emulators for example). Either way it’ll make an interesting conversational piece when I talk with the lads at work who have been making fun of me for not owning the game let alone the console to play it on.
So here I was minding my own business, watching the servers when I notice a young dumbass on the elevator server (surprise surprise). I saved the chatlog, it’s a good read.

This isn’t the first time I’ve heard kids use “meme” as an excuse. Even if it was a meme it would still be irrelevant. We’re here to have fun, saying racial slurs because it’s a “meme” or any other bullshit reason isn’t our kind of fun. However, we will have fun banning people who use them. And of course he was added to the Wall Of Shame.
Serious Sam Fusion 2017 running on Vulkan
Yesterday Croteam released the Serious Sam Fusion 2017 beta. I decided to download it and take it for a spin, and even though it’s a beta I can say I’m not disappointed.
They’ve done a nice job making the motion sickness controls more apparent to users. They’ve existed in the past HD games but they never had their own section, they also have a convenient link to the performance options so you can properly tweak your game.
BORDERLESS GAMING!!! HUZZAH!
Under Windows you can choose between Direct X 11, OpenGL or Vulkan. I tested the game on both Vulkan and DX11 with the latter having a slightly higher framerate, but only by about 10 to 20 frames give or take. My framerate averaged between 120 to 140 on Vulkan, and on DX11 it averaged 140 to 160. Still, that’s really great for a beta and even greater for Linux gamers! I’ll have to reinstall my CentOS side to test at some point, just to see how it performs compared to OpenGL. I’d test it on my mint install but that has been acting kind of funky…
One of things I like about this release is the option for rendering in 4K. I’m still on 1920×1080, but it’s nice to know that in the future 4k will be built in.
If anyone wants to give it a try it’s free if you own HD First Encounter, the others are to follow too in the future.
Outfitter allows you to wear quite a few playermodels without having to add them to the server. We had a good time testing it on our sandbox server, will also be adding it to our other gmod based servers!
I thought it would be good to start the morning with an omelet filled with bleu cheese and herbs with some bacon and toast. That gave me enough energy to focus on some tidying up. Now I have some nice clean bedding to have amazing nightmares in.
I also concocted a Frankentea brew inspired by Cherry Blossom season. I took a Japanese cherry blossom tea that I liked and brewed it in two cups of water, then I took it out when it was the appropriate shade of green and placed in two bags of black cherry tea. Then I waited for it to become dark. Then I discarded the tea bags and sweetened with honey, then added two cups of hot milk.
Then Yutram and I spent some time in the Gmod Cinema Server watching goofy shit. One of the videos included the origin story of the gelatinous orange shit stain in chief.
