    omg... my poor pup got stung this afternoon... she's a Shar Pei / Shepherd mix so her face is already a bit scrunched up which made it so I didn't realize something was wrong until the lil fuzzball's eyes were nearly shut...

    ... holy fucking panic mode!!!

    Poor thing... rushed her to the animal hospital and got her a shot of benadryl and cortisone... 2 hours later we're nearly back to normal.

    Well, I'm surprised. According to my new scale, I'm at 18.1% body fat.

    Gotta get that shit down to 10-12%.

    • is it a fancy body composition scale?dorf
    • Aye. Not really super-duper accurate, but if it's consistent in its inaccuracy, then you can at least tell if you're progressing, anyway.Continuity

    Been having trouble eating more than one meal a day for over 8 months sometimes nothing for days.. my mother has the same habit and I always thought it was super weird as a kid while I ate anything in front of me. But now I'm doing the same thing. Hereditary?

    • Wow, you created your own life-extension practice, one meal a day to keep insulin spikes low and intermediate fasting in between. You'll live a very long life..robotron3k

    Just had a phone argument with my ex-girlfriend of three years — who I haven't seen in a couple of months, and who I'm was supposedly 'friends' with — after randomly running into her on opposing escalators are an underground station, and apparently giving her 'the death look' (which, if I did, wasn't intentional).

    I could scream, cry, punch something.

    The sound is terrible on my PC ... Is there any external soundcard or gadget that I could plug in my PC to listen to music with some kind of quality?

    • External? Wouldn't the quality be throttled by the internal sound?
      Get an internal sound card?
      pango
    • i dont know, any experts in the room?Bennn
    • Something like this? https://www.bhphotov…pango
    • i guess, but I wonder if there's any external USB soundcard that can take over the internal and produce better sound qualityBennn
    • What sound card are you running? Hard to believe any 'standard' sound card doesn't output respectable sound these days... I'm wondering if something is...PonyBoy
    • ... wrong with the card? Or perhaps your drivers are out of date? (download and update them just to be safe?)PonyBoy
    • Are you playing sound through speakers plugged into your computer or straight out of the computer's ass? lol if the latter... c'mon, bennn.PonyBoy
    • once the sound wave signal is created, it can only go worse not better. unless some artificial effected are done to it.pango

    • yup, get a dachans_glib
    • DAC ... most soundcards these days output absolute shit sound, especially via the analog ports. USB to DAC is the only way around it for pure sound. Period.monospaced

    • what's a DAC? Any links?Bennn

    • Does your headphone jack plug direct into your motherboard? If so, get a dedicated soundcard. I think I have an Asus Xonar - cost like £20 or something.Nairn

    • Strangely, that's exactly the same as most PCs, and even more strangely, people buy soundcards for Macs too. How much was your mac vs. a Dell though?Nairn
    • Even dedicated soundcards, and those in Macs, have crap DACs in them, made worse by the crap ports.monospaced

    We had some friends over for the afternoon on Sunday, one of whom is vegan, so we made a load of purely vegetable-based food, including a cake.

    She was touched - apparently no one much makes that attempt - she even brought herself along a bag of cut carrots, in case of emergency. Bless.

    Anyway, point being - for the cake we had to buy almond milk as one of the ingedients, so I got my first taste of the stuff.

    It's not fucking milk, in any way shape or form. They shouldn't be allowed to call it that. It's nut water.

    There's nothing wrong with nut water, but it's not fucking milk.

    It's white nut water.

    Which is fine.

    Just don't call it 'milk'.

    Milk has a creamy texture, however that may come about.

    • there are so many chemicals in these milk alternatives. The Oatly one tastes best. Nothing beats freshly made soy milk - tastes amazing, but.. soy... boy...shapesalad
    • but since almond milk is already off white in color, calling it nut water may be too much.futurefood
    • all these "milks" are actually juices... soy juice, almond juice, etc.dorf
    • oat milk is bomb. haven't had regular milk in months now. almond milk tastes like dirt.scruffics
    • Lol @futurefood. Hazelnut Milk is a lot nicer than the Almond stuff. It's a good bit thicker and is quality in nutty cereals.microkorg
    • a lot of 'em are heavily processed as well. Like so many things, if everyone switched to nut water tomorrow, cow farts might not seem so bad.MrT
    • nut water.. I guess they can't call it nut juice.. LOLautoflavour
    • i've been hearing whispers of oat-milk, might try it for the hell of it. almond and soy taste like shit, or at least not milk-like enough to be called that_niko
    • They're not allowed to call it milk, that's the whole point. It won't say milk on it if you bought it in the UK.set
    • Oatly is by far the best. I'd take that over skanky cow puss any day...set

    I don't want to funk the notes on Bluejam's post with this stupid of mine

    Few weeks ago windowlicker director's version was shared here and somehow it got stuck, and always comes back under the shower. Noticed many times that I start humming it in deep tones, and can't stop because of the acoustics. Until this Wednesday, when it dropped from the brain turntable and went back to the shelf.

    Bluejam fuck you :) if i'm getting a stroke today and (this song gets stuck for good) it will be your fault.

    I’m in this whatsapp group with many old acquaintances. Musicians, showbiz peeple mainly. Some days ago, this WA group came alive after months of silence. One of them was inviting to his house to watch The Dirt, Motley Crew’s film premiere. Me, as a parent of an 8 mo. old, thought: it’s ridiculous. The wife, also a mom of the 8 mo. old, tells me “Go. You’ll have fun. You havn’t seen those guys for ages!”. I think: “It would be awesome to knock on their door without even responding one single line of their long conversation/ planning, where they might have assumed I was out of order. So I show up, with a six pack, and some snacks. After a big hug and some laughs with the host, I enter a room with 5 guys speaking at the same time in an incredibly high volume, around a round table with like 5 lines of coke next to a credit card, close to a HUGE rock of coke. I now get why they are “talking”, (it was in fact 5 monologues at a time), at the same time. It was sssooo weird. I listened to 50 stories in around 6 minutes, while I anxiously chugged a pint of lager. I ended up snorting 2 lines, never watched the Motley Crue movie, and came home (it’s 3am) and got to bed to start typing this. It was a very decent chunk of coke. I even ate some guacamole and I’m starting to evaluate ab expedition to the kitchen to steal some chips or something. Bye!
