Going to clean up the house tomorrow, possibly going to AutoX Sunday.
Are you going to engage in autox or other performance driving with the Beemah?

iPhone users... I’m getting sick of pop up video ads on mobile websites that have been crashing my browser and making reading a news article annoying as shit. What can I do about this? Do any of the blockers work, or do I need to find new news sites?

Mainly using BBC and NPR for news now due to this. But I’d like to broaden that a bit.

I have the adblock plus app on my phone. Seems to work?

I hate persistent, annoying ads.

I mean, I love our bacon, but ham is also good and better for :massles:
Just call it ham, it's not bacon IMO.

I do enjoy ham :doe:
Not only is it ham, it is lean AF ham. The marketing genius of calling this product bacon really exceeds George Foreman remarketing the Panini maker.

I skipped out. I am le tired from a busy balls week and cleaning the house all day Saturday.
If I raced it would be in the E30. I did one event in the 328i, and it needs better tires to be competitive.

If I did get good tires, it would do pretty well.

Wife went too far last night at a friend's house, threw up a few times on the way home and I had to carry her inside the house when we got home. First time that's happened, she's pretty shaken up about it.

One of the biggest hurdles for the cannabis industry is consistent outcomes for consumption.

Other than that, morning dudes!

Last night I watched series 1 episode 4-6 of High Score on Netflix. It was interesting to see the evolution of Sega as competitor to Nintendo, ground up strategy to implementation and the creation of Sonic the Hedgehog which apparently is still really big with kids today. Working with Japanese customers this episode was fun to watch.

:howdy:

That sucks man, I usually avoid edibles because they don't sit well with me. I agree that work needs to be done about making them more consistent.

I usually just puff a little bowl or two max and am set for the festivity.

We were passing a joint around with my buddy that grows his own. His stuff hits HARD so I took two hits and passed from there on out. Wife kept going despite knowing what his stuff can do...still not sure why. Never had that sort of reaction before.

It was no bueno...I felt really bad for her.

Poor thing, that sucks for her. I've gotten that sick in BC, a friend of mine lived in a grow town and every year "the scientist" would bring and sell seeds and a sample bag of what the batch will be like. We tried some and I was never more twisted. I sat in a recliner/arm chair and felt like my legs were pivoting back and forth as I stared at the TV. Nausea ensued and my friend told me I started looking a little pale. He grabbed us both a bowl of ice cream and believe it or not I downed it and avoided being stuck in that nasty rut. Bleh, too much.

Oh wow, very similar for the wife last night...she kept saying how dizzy she was and how she "didn't feel like she was in her body" along with calls for "this needs to stop NOW". Tried to get her to eat some snacks, but that was not happening.

Glad she's feeling better today. I'll be curious if she hits it again or just :nope: out. My wife took a hiatus for nearly a decade after she experienced something like that (or possibly a panic attack right after puffing, :iono: ). I burned another one six hours later :lolol: , but I'm a dirtbag to my body sometimes and always up for a rematch.

That is pretty cray man. I've never really had a "bad trip" from weed. In fact on many occasions when I've drank way too much, it sort of brings me back to earth or at least causes me to slow/stop the booze consumption. I've never really loved being super stoned, so I normally just have a few puffs and I'm good.

I like that with the vape pen, a bowl, or a joint, you can regulate intake pretty nicely. Bong rips or edibles can go the wrong way, those are the two that have hit me the worst in the past. I did try edibles again back on Labor Day for the first time in years and it was pretty cool, but I had a very small dose.

How did everyone's weekends go?

Friday night I chilled at the house by myself as the wife was out to dinner with friends, was :nice: to just hang and get some quiet time.

Saturday I did my biggest bike ride yet, 84 miles with a group I found on meetup.com. It was a 5/7 time, awesome group of people and we enjoyed some food/beers after. Other than freezing for the first hour, it was a beautiful day and fantastic time. I will definitely be riding with them again, but I need to figure out some better cold weather stuff.

Yesterday I did my final (I think) mow, blew leaves, cleaned out the gutters, and cleaned/reorganized our shed and outdoor storage rooms. I also made a :notbad: Mexican dinner for us and read for a few hours.

FIL and I managed to get one tree cut down before the winds got too :fullretard: on Saturday. In fact, after making the cut opposite the wedge cut it looked like the tree may have somehow fallen in the :wrong: direction and landed in the street, but at exactly the right moment an :alpo: luck wind came from the southeast and blew the tree down exactly where we wanted it - safely across the lawn. :lol:
Winds got crazy blustery after that so we quit while we were ahead and just did the one tree.

Sunday just watched the Bears barely win, did laundry, went to Menards to pick up some stuff, fixed a borked outdoor electrical outlet - in the rain lol, and otherwise chilled.
:wap: Where are these mangos?

Yea, she's taking a break "for a while" I suspect she'll be back at it next weekend. Still, she's pretty :disgust: about it all.

My first experience with edibles was "bad" and turned me off for a while. I still don't do much in the way of edibles, but have learned the right amount to smoke. She's usually really good...this just took her off guard. She did smoke more than she remembers :doe:

Oh, met a QAnon believer (follower?) this weekend. Was...interesting.

She's a friend we've known for many years, lives up here not far from us. She and her husband came over this Saturday to see the house and hang. They're our age, DINKS, super normal and chill...we've always gotten along. Toward the end of the night after putting back a few bottles of wine between the 4 of us, she started asking questions about our time in California and if we'd ever witnessed devil worship out there. Wife and I glanced at each other and responded with a slow :wat: "nooooo.......?" Then she point blank asked if we we've done any "research into the truth and Qanon". Her husband rolled his eyes as hard as I've seen someone roll their eyes, tried to change the subject fast, and ushered them out within 30 minutes. Could tell we was NOT INTO IT. I was so curious that I kept asking her to elaborate, every time he tried to shut her down and change the topic. But from what I could gather, I get it. Not the conspiracy (that's :fullretard: to me) but I can see how someone might get into believing a conspiracy theory...any, and especially one so directly tied to current .gov leadership (and not directly denounced...that's the big thing here).

Isolation, boredom, and the internet being your only window to the outside world seems very dangerous. Michele said "they need more friends", and she's absolutely right. The fact that someone so normal in all other ways could be so :fullretard: with conspiracy is scary to me. Makes me wonder if this is more common than I realize.

Her vote still counts so the marketing works! I'm not at all surprised this underground movement is so mainstream TBH, but the theatrics seems to keep getting bigger each election (here too).
