Addiction LXXVII

Notices
Road Cycling It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle. -- Ernest Hemingway

Here it comes. A week or so earlier than predicted

one general tip for when the exact hub cone is not readily available. discovered that the curvature of the bearing surface on the shimano 600 was a pretty good "skeleton key" for many applications. it would sometimes require a small change in ball size to make everything come out correctly.

Hiya!

Good decision. They don’t do much for that beside pain meds anyway. Incidentally, that kind of injury can predispose to pneumonia, another reason to stay safe.

I mean, I'm English and Scottish by long-distant ancestry, not Irish, to my knowledge. But hey, lots of Irish stuff is cool. There are lots of Irish-American in classy places like upstate NY.

Maybe you should try Fallout 4 instead?

Belichick or not, Tom makes good reads, gets rid of the ball quickly and moves well in the pocket - I hope the Bucs make some noise... if the season happens.

I'm not so sure on the Pats. It'll be interesting. Maybe the Bills, who were kind enough to send MN a bunch of draft picks for a talented but increasingly diva-ish WR, will take the AFC East.

I wish they'd make an Assassin's Creed set in colonial HK. That would be an amazing setting for it.

I really don't think Brady's skills will mean as much in an offense where everyone doesn't fall into clockwork automaton perfection, and Matt Cassel won 11 games for them. Eleven. Matt. Cassel.

Would be cool if the Bills did that, but the evidence suggests that the Patriots will chug along just fine.

Or, as you say, we'll all be watching Locke and Key again.

I stopped after Brotherhood. Got sick of them drawing out the overarching storyline.

Have you played the DIshonored games? Those are fun and have some similar elements. Lots of ways to skin a cat makes for some great replay value.

I mostly just ignore the storyline and explore the world. No on dishonored - will have to take a look.

Super fun. You can plow through the world killing everything in sight. More uniquely, you can complete the game without killing a soul. As the game progresses, the environment will change as a reflection of the chaos you've created with your play style.

Armed with enough let's-just-get-it-over-with to overcome my not-quite-adequate knowledge, I made the executive decision on my foray in to Japanese whiskies. Since it's been a long, mostly sedentary day, I marched down to my LLS to buy my bottle of choice.



....and they were closed. I mean, they were open, but they were closed to walk-in customers. Delivery only. So I walked back home, sat my ass in front of the computer, placed the order and now I wait.

Never played it, but it looks interesting. For those too lazy to do a quick search (me), is it online only?
