  1. I don't disagree with the OP that people are... mistaken about how far they hit the ball. I fail to see what handicap has to do with distance though. I've seen all sizes of people spray the ball all over the place every distance possible so I don't think handicap has much to do with it.
  2. Was playing with a buddy once and we were hitting our second shots on a par 4. Some jackwads teed off thinking we were far enough ahead and hit my buddy on the ribcage right around where his elbow would be with arms at rest. He was a stocky guy so he knelt down for a bit and then got up and walked it off. I got hit in the thigh by a bouncing shank from an an old lady a few years ago. No warning and no apology in both cases. I've never hit someone but like I mentioned in another thread I hit a goose during 2 different rounds the same year the old woman hit me.
  3. Yeah I've had the Samsung 4 TB SSD bookmarked for almost a year on newegg and Amazon. It was $1500 or something ridiculous at first and now it's $600. I'd be comfortable buying it at $600 but since I'm in no hurry I'll probably wait for for black friday and see if it drops some more. I bought my current 500 GB SSD for about $400 6 years ago and it was one of the biggest SSDs at the time so I agree the trend with these things is nice. I'm not much of a fan of the cyberpunk theme either but I'm sure I'll pick it up eventually. It's really the only AAA title game I've heard anything about for 2019 which seems odd. Maybe that means there's a lot of good things lined up for 2020.
  4. Compared to a nice long career? Plus, when he had the chance to stand behind his word he took the money and ran. I don't know what the price of a reputation is but it's clearly less than whatever the NFL paid him.
  5. Of course it'll be a jon snow + danerys partnership, duh! 👍
  6. They didn't collude to keep him out of the league, unless you consider refusing to hire someone who is extremely bad for business collusion. The guy is a tool bag of the highest order and got what was coming to him imo.
  7. I've owned 2 Dells over the years and they were the only computers I've ever owned that had stuff break on them. Absolute garbage machines, and ironically they were the most money I've ever spent on computers. I will never, EVER buy a Dell again for the rest of my life. Alienware I think has always been incredibly overpriced but simply being owned by Dell now is enough to ensure that I personally would never touch one of those machines either. Anyway, I built my current machine several years ago after buying all the parts off newegg. It's the first time I've done it and I'll never go back to buying pre-built machines, so yeah I'd definitely recommend doing it yourself. GPUs are a bit of a bugbear still because the stupid bitcoin miners buy them up and make the prices insane. The dual GPU SLI/Crossfire stuff is kind of a fad I think but even if it wasn't I think the bitcoin nonsense would make it unaffordable anyway. A top of the line card will probably run you $1000-$1400. Lastly, I do have the items I need wish-listed on newegg so I can watch the prices but I have a feeling I won't be buying anything until the black friday/cyber monday sales next fall. It seems like the only time you can get things at decent prices.
  8. I watched this recently as well. I thought it was a great movie but I'm a fan of Mads Mikkelson anyway and I'll watch just about any action movie I stumble across. Ultra-violent though for sure so this definitely might not be for everyone.
  9. Picked up a pair of 43" 4K monitors for my desktop and tried to play some games on the new settings. Like I figured I'll need to upgrade a couple other things to make things playable on max settings at 4K. Ha Anyway, picked up a bunch of games during the holiday sale on Steam. Galactic Civilization 3 is as fun as I hoped. Stellaris is interesting. Divinity: Original Sin is a solid RPG. There are several more I haven't even touched because I know they'll be unplayable at 4K.
  10. Exactly, which is why I couldn't understand how this case wouldn't be a walk in the park for the NFL. There must have been something in the CBA/NFLPA that gave him just enough footing where the NFL couldn't tell him to pound sand.
  11. Haha, this guy is exactly the douchebag so many people thought he was.
  12. Nice. I would have went with a 2080 TI over the 1070s actually, but the rest looks solid. I'd try Deus Ex: Mankind Divided if you want to see a great looking game that takes some power to max out.
  13. Yeah it is. I picked up a bundle for Darksiders 1 and 2 on Steam for like 5 bucks a few years ago and was amazed it was that cheap. Such a great all-around series.
  14. 1981 silver 2-door Dodge Champ hatchback. Grandparent's car but he never drove it so it was a loaner for my last couple years of highschool. Chick repellent car.
  15. Picked up a couple games during the steam sale. Warhammer 40,000: Space Marine, and Dragon's Dogma. Both games are a bit older now but are entertaining. Dragon's Dogma is what Skyrim should have been like.
