You goddamn nerds clearly don't get it. Sittin round with yer craptoons wasting time while he's out inventing the Milwaukees Best Hand Blaster. That baby paid for boat. That's his boat. Ha I laugh at you, nerds. Little nothings. See girl? Girl in boat? His girl. HIS boat. Keep doing anime, sure. Why not? Oh wait, you are wet and cold floating in the water? He can not relate because he glides on top in boat with real girl. He squeezes the titty. Smirks. His foaming wake drowns your furious tears.

A boat named "Dangerzone". I wonder what part the "Danger" refers to. Doesn't look like he takes it into storms, or engages in firefights with drug smuggler boats (no armor). Perhaps he expects an engine fire?

Yes, that's Ca$h, it's the same girl... unless she's dating a different narcissistic, boat-owning, sociopath from Madison Wisconsin, now.

I imagine he's much happier in an environment where you get a score for how irritating you are. Permabans are so ephemeral.

It makes it harder to convince yourself that you're well-liked when there's a number showing you exactly how many people you've pissed off. Though I imagine reality has never really gotten in the way of what he believes about himself.

My dimestore psychoanalysis says he equates pissing people off, and those people's aggravated responses, as a positive experience.

The usual profile is someone who is neglected by their parents and can only get attention by acting-up. It conditions them to think this is what makes people care about you.

Adding to that the strong belief that everything he likes is "rad" and "badass" while everything he doesn't like is "lame" and "for fags," and he finds himself a lot of negative attention.

He did a boss job on that boat too. He is very talented, he's just a massive dick about it. Like Laminar said, unless you are into what he is into you are dumb and wasting your life away.

In the past couple years. Last week I finished building an air-powered hydraulic tubing bender for making roll cages. I usually post this stuff elsewhere but if you guys would be interested I could post pictures here.

I'll take and post some build pics in my dream recording studio thread.

Almost every inch of wall is covered in pictures from magazines and comics, so even if audio gear is not your bag you can marvel* at the sensory overload.

Progress stopped when the baby came and I haven't really done much besides replacing the Mini with my gaming PC. I still need to finish off the bottom of the soffits and do some final trim work, but everything's in place and I use it a lot.

He posted enough pictures of himself here that we already know what he looks like and who he is.

Well if we're talkin bout buildin stuff, I reckon I'll join in. Although I don't spend much leisure time building seeing as it's my full time job. At any rate... Here's a very nice barn I built two summers ago. My father contracted it and myself and our helper at the time built 95% of everything you see.


Frame


Sheathing


Upper Loft


Plot before


...and after

The barn doors were my father's project, made entirely out of Western Red Cedar.

I would add some flaming netherrack to the roofline, and perhaps some obsidian for the foundation.
