    [–] Women who have been/are the "one who got away", what's your story? karlsmission 9 points ago in AskWomen

    very true. We were both in high school. juniors. She appreciated me as a friend, I saw her as somebody I wanted to date. We stayed friends, but it stung a little bit. If she had just mentioned at some point during our friendship that she was a lesbian, or at any point in the year + prior that I knew her (we were in choir together) that she had a girlfriend, or even mentioned girls to me at all... And she was.. affectionate? Would hold my hand, put her arm around me, snuggle close to me, etc. So every sign I had learned to use to determine if a girl was interested in me was in play..

    [–] Women who have been/are the "one who got away", what's your story? karlsmission 3 points ago in AskWomen

    Guy here. In HS, I was pretty shy, and this girl I really liked, we became friends, hung out a bunch, spent A LOT of time at school together, started to hang out outside of school. I finally asked her to go on an official date with me, Told me she was a lesbian. I was a bit floored. She had a GF, I had never met, nor had she ever mentioned to me. (went to a different school). So, while I don't agree with his reaction, if you don't know that somebody is not interested in the sex you are...

    [–] Update, and a laugh karlsmission 1 points ago in JUSTNOMIL

    My wife and I just submitted our DNA tests. I keep joking that we're going to find out she's 1/64th black, because her family is SOOOOO racist. (that and my wife has a blood trait that is common in people of African decent)

    [–] 2003 I35 with 126,000mi $1200 oil leak question karlsmission 2 points ago in infiniti

    Depends on how bad the leak is. If its just pouring oil on the ground, I would look at getting rid of it as the value of the car is not there to justify the money spent on the work (I.E. if you take what you can sell it for as is + cost of repairs, can you buy something nicer? and does doing the work increase the value by the amount that the car is worth?). If its just a small leak, Put a drip pan down with some kitty litter, and just check your oil every time you get gas.

    Sounds like you and DH have the right plan, GTFO! your lives will change once you move out.

    [–] What would be the desktop equivalent of the nVidia NVS 5400m 1GB that's on the T430? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    They are not garbage as much as... Just not being meant for gaming. A corvette is not a family hauler and a family hauler is not a corvette. They perform different purposes. The purpose of an NVS is to add multiple display support, and better openCL support. Its is not meant to do a lot of heavy lifting graphics wise.

    [–] What would be the desktop equivalent of the nVidia NVS 5400m 1GB that's on the T430? karlsmission 7 points ago in thinkpad

    in my experience, the NVS chipsets are just barely better than integrated graphics, and are not meant for gaming...

    [–] Turns into an argument with the wife at least once a month karlsmission 8 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    Nope. They told me I was stupid for moving out, and wasting my money, and that I needed to stay home. When I told them I was litterally going insane due to lack of sleep, they told me I was lazy for sleeping in, and I needed to quit staying out late... When I was usually in bed within an hour or two of clocking out at work.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    Last year I upgraded everybody to a newer thinkpad, sold off the old ones. This is the last one I kept, I did a couple of videos with it for my youtube channel and just haven't been able to get rid of it.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    Well, not just a brand, but specific laptops I find significant. I have a few sitting around, My first laptop after I got my first "real" job, the same model of laptop I got at my first real Tech job. etc. I have 12-15 laptops total, is part of my problem.

    [–] Turns into an argument with the wife at least once a month karlsmission 19 points ago in AdviceAnimals

    for the first few years of my "adult" life I still lived at home, and would work a swing/night shift, often getting home at 4 or 5am, on the weekends, and saturday morning, there my dad would be mowing the lawn and during the week, he would be in the office blasting news at 5 fucking 30am. They never understood it, and didn't care. I moved out earlier than I was ready to and got myself in a bit of a financial mess because I was going crazy.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    Its hard to accept that I am doing that as well.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    yeah, it just hurts to do it, but its been sitting in the closet for the last three months untouched. I should sell it.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 2 points ago in thinkpad

    The problem is, at those specs, it isn't worth selling, I can downgrade it back to the core i5, an HDD, and 4 gigs of ram and give up like $30 in sell price, but gain back more parts to sell, the CPU itself is worth ~$50, and the two ram sticks are worth ~$30 each... so that looks like what I'm going to have to do.

    [–] Spadger Electric Skateboard 2 week update karlsmission 3 points ago in ElectricSkateboarding

    For sure, it was what, $230 at Walmart? That’s a steal.

    You get used to the speed pretty quick, I find medium to be perfect carving through neighborhood streets, and high if I just wanna get somewhere. Low I almost never use.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    I would, I just really don't have the room to do that.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    I had given it to a family member, but everybody wants something they can carry around, nobody wants this massive beast (it is heavy), so they upgraded to an x250 last year, and gave it back to me. I did the upgrades and it has just sat since. I have a problem with tech hoarding, I need to get over.

    [–] What do you do with your old thinkpads? karlsmission 1 points ago in thinkpad

    I'm sure, I just hate getting rid of it, but I shouldn't be a tech hoarder...
