    Relationship Advice Thread

    Of course everyone has their own opinion on what's right or wrong based on their experiences so I'll just throw this out there. Just within the last 10 years or so my dad has found out that he has 2 half-sisters. We had long suspected this because my grandpa was a bit of a man-whore and was married 7 times to 5 different women. One found us a little while back and we've met her and her family a couple of times. One just recently found us within the last year. I've never met her in person but from seeing her pictures on Facebook, she shares a startling resemblance (as well as a last name) with one of my other aunts. It's kinda cool to realize that you have other relatives out there and to learn more about your family history. I've never been in the situation personally but I think it would just be better to at least know your biological parents and be given the choice of whether or want them in your life or not. I don't know all the legalities of it but I don't think a mother can prevent a father from being in his child's life if he really wishes to be.

    **Movies that we watch in 2019** Thread

    If you ever read the book or watched the original movie and care about spoilers, don't watch this trailer. They changed a pretty significant plot point of the story and it's revealed here. Other than that, it looks like it might be decent.

    I'm actually a big fan of Will Smith. I may be proven wrong but I just don't think he's the right actor for this character. Of course nobody will ever live up to Robin Williams portrayal.

    Also think about the fact that even if you sign over your rights, the kid may seek you out someday down the road. Sometimes it's nice to know family history, lineage, genetics, medical conditions that may be hereditary, etc...

    A lot of people that were excited about the fact that they were making more money last year are just now realizing the true cost behind it. Many are regretting the person they voted for a couple of years ago as well.

    I don't really understand this recent fascination with taking movies and re-making them with the opposite gender. I think it started with Ghostbusters, then Overboard, Ocean's 8 and now What Men Want.

    Machado signs with Padres 10/300

    Anyone ever watch the Adam Sandler movie "Click"? Where he gets the remote and he wants to fast-forward his life to when he gets his promotion. Then he's shocked at how long it actually took? I feel like if I had that remote and used it to fast-forward to when Manny and Harper finally make a decision, I'd be surprised at how far into the future it took me. Especially if I'd used it back in December.

    Ricketts racist emails

    The proper comparison would be if someone like Eddie Einhorn would've said something like this. He wasn't the face of the franchise and wasn't involved in the day to day operations but he had a financial stake.

    2018 Video Game thread

    So I've been watching walk-through videos of RDR2 because I don't really care about spoilers and I want some sort of an idea of what's coming when I play the missions and came across this. Rockstar really knocked this out of the park. It's not even the end of the game but it's coming close. The feels though... 😢 Very minor spoilers for the storyline of the game. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QbetfW2h4Eo There's even one point where you try to call your horse (which you've literally bonded with through out the game) and a little message comes up that says "Your horse is lost."

    2018 Video Game thread

    I've been that way for a few years but for different reasons. Before I got Spider-Man in October, the only games I had really been playing with any regularity was MLB the Show 16 and the Uncharted games. Now I'm on RDR2 and still have South Park Fractured But Whole and Kingdom Hearts: The Story so Far sitting on my shelf waiting. The only thing I'm looking forward to right now is Kingdom Hearts 3, which I probably won't get until towards the end of the year. I remember going to a store when I was a kid and looking at all the games and getting excited about playing all of them. Now I'll go and look and I don't even recognize half the titles.

    2018 Video Game thread

    St. Denis is the worst. I once got a wanted level for "disturbing the peace" because I forgot to take my mask off. Also if you bump someone with your horse, half the city decides they want to fight you. When I first started playing, my biggest problem was accidentally shooting people because I kept pushing the wrong button. I've since learned to save constantly so that if I screw something up, I can go back and re-load. I'm too much of a completionist to not get 100% on my games. So far I've found that it won't be too difficult for this one... just time consuming. There doesn't seem to be a whole lot of repetitive grinding. Except for the hunting. Although I typically do that while on my way to do something else.

    2018 Video Game thread

    I'm still playing the single-player mode. I've never been a fan of online mode. I tried GTA a couple of times, did a little hacking with WatchDogs and went on the original RDR online like once. I prefer to explore and experience the game by myself. Although I do have moments where I wish someone else was in the room with me while I'm playing RDR2 so I could say to them "What the hell was that?" Like the time I had a grizzly bear and a cougar attack me at the same damn time. Shot the bear, got jumped by the cougar from behind. Or the time I robbed a store, got a wanted level, jumped on my horse to get away from the 5 lawmen chasing me, then almost fell off a cliff because I ran smack into another damn grizzly. Still having a blast playing the game though. I'm only on chapter 3 because I've spent most of my time either hunting, doing all the side missions or completing the challenges. I have almost all the crafted outfits in the game. Although I've realized that some of them I can't get until the end of the game.

    I've heard that legally, they are allowed to say yes or no to the question "Would you hire this person again?"

    There really hasn't been much information so far in this thread. So I don't know why that would stop us now.

    **2019 Water-cooler Thread**

    The past few nights I've been watching 'Valley of the Boom' on Nat Geo. It's a "docudrama" which is something I've never heard of. It's sort of a cross between a documentary where they are interviewing the real people in front of a camera but then they also have scenes where they have actors playing these real people. It sort of reminds me of those crime shows or 'True Stories of the ER' where they have a re-enactment of certain scenes. Then only difference is that during the scenes, they break the 4th wall and talk directly to the viewer a lot. It's set in the 1990's when the internet was first being introduced to the masses and the browser wars were taking place between Netscape, AOL and Microsoft. They reference a lot of websites that I've never even heard of like theglobe.com (which was apparently Facebook before Facebook) and sfgirl.com (which was apparently a blog before anyone knew what that word was). It's interesting but I'm not sure I like the format. It's sometimes difficult to remember which actor is playing which real person.
