  1. Elon Musk Now Selling Flamethrowers

    Flamethrowers? Elon Musk should be putting money into making Tesla's factories safe to work in.
  2. Well, no bet money for me.

  3. Anyone got money riding on the Finals? It's my first ever sport bet, and I got $45 on Vegas winning in 6 or 7 on BCLC. I also put $5 on Kuznetsov winning the Conn Smythe...not such a great move now.

      Couldn't bring myself to bet on it after seeing Sutherland assigned to the series.  I simply don't trust that scumbag not to rig the final.

      At the time I placed the bet, the payout on both series outcomes I picked was 4.9, so I put $22.50 on each. Also, the payout for Kuznetsov was 20.

       

      As for Sutherland, I see your point, although there are no Canadian teams to get screwed over here. Besides, if he does strike again, he would probably be under orders to steer things in Vegas' favour, given the massive PR/ ratings boost if the Cup is won by an inaugural team carrying the hopes of a city dealing with a somewhat recent tragedy.

       

      Also, I remember that Ovechkin and the Capitals management were pretty defiant when the NHL was enforcing the Olympic participation ban. Bettman probably won't forget that.

       

      Sorry if I sound like a conspiracy nut, but anything with millions of dollars at stake needs a cynical view.

      should've put 100 on Vegas to win back last summer when the odds were 500:1

      Hurr durr

  4. Man, Alex Jones could have been an amazing voice actor. It's a shame he was talked into Info Wars first

      It's a shame that his father didn't pull out 45 years ago.

      lol i think he's hilarious, some of the clips of him.

  5. The new Venom trailer has me cautiously optimistic. The CGI design of Venom himself is especially appealing.

      Spider-Man 3 is a legendary movie.

  6. Just finished watching Titanic with the family over Easter dinner. Still one of the greatest stories ever put to film.

      I still love Kate Winslet. But the supporting actors on that movie where fantastic. Why is it the CGI in that holds up better than some later CGI?

  7. Down the stretch, all I want this team to do is help get Horvat his pound of flesh in the form of points.

    It looks like they're too inept to even accomplish that.

  8. A question of Pokemon fans familiar with Gen 1: Which of the original 151 Pokemon do you think was forgettable enough that it shouldn't have existed? My vote goes to Tangela

      Tangela's a pretty good choice, I guess.

  9. Wish I could jump in there and roll around in all that cascading white powder...

  10. Rough game, but at least Boeser isn't being held back by Horvat's absence.

     

    Also, I had the weirdest dream about Horvat. In the dream, the Canucks fell out of the playoff race on the last day of the season at the Oilers' hands, and the Sedins were directly involved in every goal against. Horvat then blew up at the team in a players meeting, tears and all, and directly called out Henrik.

     

    Then the dream cut to Horvat in a parked black SUV, cussing out people over the phone. For some reason, I was part of the team, but was wearing a boot for a foot injury. I was about to call Horvat to invite him to an escape room, but I woke up at that moment.

  11. Used a soldering iron for the first time yesterday. My wireless mouse is working again and I managed not to burn the house down. #SmallVictories

      I reattached the black and red wires leading from the batteries to the  circuit board. 

       

      Nothing much, but then again, I'm someone who dropped out of a welding course two weeks into it because I handled every tool like a hand grenade.

      Not usually a good sign when you rip the pin out a throw a perfectly good torch across the room...

    Here's a gif to summarize this loss:
  13. What an episode from Dragon Ball Super! Finally, a payoff that did something fresh and reignited that feeling of watching DBZ in my childhood

      It's all of you dumbasses that keep feeding these companies cash after already initially buying their games that are at fault.

       

      Let them cry about how much games cost to make.  They can do what movie companies do and team up with other companies if they don't want to risk losing their rear ends if their game fails.

  15. This is based off of a Gordon Ramsay recipe I found on YouTube. However, the ingredients I used here should be easy enough to find in any major grocery chain in BC (Save-On-Foods, Safeway, Superstore, Walmart, etc.) Seriously, what store sells double or heavy cream here? Panna Cotta (4 servings): 6 to 7 g of gelatin (typically available in leaf or powdered form) 1/3 cup cold water 1 2/3 cup whipping cream (33%) 100 g caster sugar 1/4 cup hot espresso coffee (or 1.5 tbsp instant coffee dissolved in 1/4 cup boiling hot water) 1 tsp vanilla extract Ganache: Just under 1/2 cup whipping cream 50 g dark chocolate (~70%) 1 tbsp salted butter or margarine Honey to taste in a bowl, stir the gelatin into the cold water and set it aside until later. Chill 4 ramekins (each should hold ~175 mL ) in the fridge In a small saucepan, stir together the cream, sugar, coffee, and vanilla until the sugar dissolves, then allow mix to reach a simmer. Remove the saucepan from the heat before boiling occurs and allow it to cool for a few minutes. During this wait, chop up the chocolate finely and place it in a ceramic or Pyrex bowl larger that the saucepan. Empty the soaked gelatin into the saucepan and stir until fully dissolved. Rinse your ramekins in cold water without drying them, then place the ramekins on a level tray and put it in the fridge. Pour your cream mix through a coffee strainer into a jug or large measuring cup, then fill up your ramekins evenly. Allow to set for at least 4 hours, preferably overnight. Wash out the saucepan, pour in the cream for the ganache, and bring to a simmer. Immediately pour it into the bowl of chocolate, add the butter or margarine, and whisk until fully melted down. If ingredients aren't fully combining, wash the saucepan and add an inch of hot water, then set up the bowl and saucepan as a bain-marie with the heat set to low. Once the ingredients are thoroughly combined, mix in honey to taste and refrigerate. Once the panna cotta is set, take out the ramekins and place them in a bath of boiling hot water for 5-10 seconds, taking care not to fill the bath too high. This is meant to shock the panna cotta enough for it to fall out. If needed, use a small knife to trim around the panna cotta to get it off the surface of the ramekin. Place a saucer on each ramekin, flip both saucer and ramekin over together, and lightly shake the ramekin until the panna cotta slips out. Take out the ganache and whisk until it reaches a syrup-like thickness. If needed, warm up the mixture by placing the bowl in the water bath for a minute. To decorate, use a spoon or knife to scoop out some of the center of each panna cotta, creating a pit about a 1/2 inch deep. Use the ganache to fill the pit and dress the panna cotta any way you like before serving.
