It always grinds my gears to hear that song and the forced rhyming of "aggzets" to make "jackets" work.

My glasses have not made themselves evident. I spent some time in the lake digging in the sand but to no avail. I asked Kid to go to my house and see if he can find my spare pair and overnight them to me, waiting for him to be off work so he can tell me whether that's going to happen.

Finally got to take the 9+ year old TV apart, the power supply was frying itself, replacement board is like 20$ on ebay.
I guess this thing is eventually going to be a MAME cabinet screen. I am probably going to build or get one that is just the two player stand, then wall mount this as the monitor.
I mean, I can't think of any other purpose for a 46" 1080p screen.

He's like a 5-year-old who hears a new word and uses it repeatedly to try and guess the meaning based on the reactions it gets, or he thinks that using a grownup word makes him sound grownup.

We all have to deal with discovering that our parents have flaws and they aren't the superheroes we once thought they were. But this is a cult making people abandon their families.

I can't remember the original source, but there was something about this posted a year or two ago, talking about why some "religions" make their faithful go door to door to spread the gospel.

Preaching to the unbelievers isn't about converting new people to the cause - it's about the "faithful" getting rejected and spat on and denounced by everyone else, even their own families. Then the would-be missionary goes back to the cult, and cult welcomes them back and says "See? You can't trust the world out there - they are all lying to you; they are all part of the conspiracy. We're ones that believe what you believe and we're the ones that actually care about you. We'll tell you what is true - don't listen to the so-called experts."

Yes, this is true. The church I was a part of growing up (VEEEERY Southern Baptist and evangelical) talked about this very thing - this is why we went on missions. It wasn't to convert people (though that was a bonus). It was to see what the sinful world would do to the faithful and that it would strengthen our faith because Jesus would protect us. When I came to the realization that this was so farked up (round about 10th grade), I told my parents I wasn't going to go to church anymore or have anything to do with the church. Boy were they pissed! But they, too, left after my mom was hospitalized for the first time with cancer. The church elders told my mom that the lung cancer was evidence of her sin and that she was getting what she deserved. 

fark that noise.

That big electrolytic looks swollen (I could be wrong, maybe it's just the angle of the photo). Twenty bucks is cheap enough to not bother with fixing the original board, but if you were inclined it might be an amusing project. If the cap got bad enough, some of the semiconductors might be cooked so swapping the cap is still a crap shoot. Same capacitance, equal or higher voltage rating, and for the love of God, observe the correct polarity when installing.

I got into that google hole and decided on just swapping the board.

I've said it before and I'll say it again:

It's like WWE - it's not about the end result, it's about the show on the way to the result. And the longer you can draw it out, and the angrier you can make the audience, the more they'll pay to see the show again.

So, I've been greatful for YouTube videos lately. Well, some of them.

I got an electronic music thingamajig a couple weeks ago, kinda powerful/complicated, and it has been great being able to find how-to videos on almost any topic I need to research. And watching more videos tends to reveal some little button or feature, so I end up learning a second or third set of information. I was able to install a second hard drive in it, which would have been frustrating if I hadn't watched a video first.

They just had a new software update last week, and watching videos on the new features showed me how to do a few things, where the buttons were hidden under the menus.

But there are some really lame how-to videos that get lots of likes. Some folks love filming themselves rocking out to a groove, making faces showing how much they are feeling the vibe.

I've been a bit bummed since yesterday, due to a climate change thread. It wasn't that the article on which it was based blamed Americans (of which we deserve a true chunk of blame). It was instead the assertion that civilization would collapse in 30 years that made me gloomy. I am not up on the literature on how bad things are predicted to get. I know we've already passed a couple tipping points, and that there are others; but I had felt that the planet would still be habitable, albeit miserable as temperatures climbed.

The bummer is that it is nigh impossible to adequately address climate change in the US until (if) sane leaders have a comfortable majority. I'm of course talking about the Senate, but the House is still in play, and Biden is no lock for a second term.

Really, we should have thrown truckloads of time, money, and energy at this a decade ago, but it is not yet too late to mitigate. Except all the Democrats' resources are aimed at keeping us from falling back into an authoritarian kleptocracy/kakistocracy.

The bummer is feeling that maybe... maybe the plague should run it's course. No. I know that's not right. Republicans will still hold slim state majorities, and so many innocents will be affected. Aggressive stupidity holds loaded guns to our collective heads.
