Curious question: What are the crows going after chewing up everyone's lawn like they do? They rampage some, and then take it easy on the others!

Crows dig up chafer grubs. They probably spread out to forage and when one of them cah caws they all flock to that lawn and rape it.

Does anyone know the rough cost to vinyl wrap something like a 4Runner in just a basic gloss colour?

JN & Z Deli on the Drive is open again. I gave up on ever seeing them again, but it looks like the renovations are over and they're back!

I noticed the crows started doing it once the green bins were put in use, no garbage to eat so they resorted to grubs i guess.... also they look bigger n stronger now, the weak crows probably all died


anyone know if Richmond Centre still does the gift wrapping by donation thing?

I have no lawn left. Okay adding up what's left, I'd say I have about a third of my entire front lawn left intact after it got fucked over by the 'coons.

Wait till spring when I put in the artificial stuff with razors buried just below the surface. That'll learn 'em.

Just wanna ask a question about tvs without posting a new thread lol...so here goes.

Does anyone else agree that 1080p television with native 1080p content and feeds, is good enough? I see this new 4K UHD and there is so much details, is like I don't even think I can see that much fine details with my own eyes! I mean if your watching something from your own eyes and live, I can't see every fine hair or leaves of the grass like I do watching it in ultra hd...dunno if you know what I'm trying to say, its almost like 4K UHD is more then the eyes can see unless you record it and watch it on again on a TV or computer! 1080p content looks pretty stunning already, 4K more impressive, then now they talking 8K or something, when will it end? How much higher def do we need to go?

BTW, what DEF is watching movies in the theater?

The thing with 4K and even 1080p is that even if you have a matching quality source you still need to be watching it from the optimal viewing distance to really get the most from it. For 1080p that's about 2x the diagonal of the TV (so for a 50" TV, 100" away) but for 4K it's closer to 1.5x. Since most people sit a lot further than that away from their TV it's really a waste of money IMO.

Anyone who argues 4k isn't a noticeable improvement has not seen a proper setup.

IMO it is an amazing step in TV technology. While it's only Netflix and a few apps that currently stream native 4k content, there are still thousands of hours of content.

Not to mention good sets with good processors do a great job at upscaling

Purchased the 55XBR850B last winter, every single
Person who has seen it at my place has remarked how good it looks.

There is a lot of contradicting opinions online, however almost every single person with a 4k set will promote it and the people pushing against it do not have one. Really hard to make the decision on your own until you've seen a set properly setup and calibrated outside of bestbuy etc.

Also keep in mind, you need minimum 18mb/s connection to stream native 4k. If your connection is slower than that or being bogged down by downloads etc. the netflix app will not even display 4k options

^ serious question, how much of the noticeable improvement comes from the 4k and how much of it comes from other improvements in video quality that you would see if the same hardware was 1080p?

More importantly actually, how does rather poor quality stuff look? Some of the old stuff I have isn't even 480p, but if it won't look any worse than it does now on a 1080 screen then I might go 4k for my next set.

The XBR is obviously sony's top line. However, my parents ended up replacing a 8 year old Panasonic with a $900 vizio 4k set. While the overall picture is not as good I feel like the detail is definately noticeable, even from their relatively good 1080p 3D projector.

720 and lower I can't really speak to much anymore as we no longer have cable. I remember some stuff looking just terrible where as some older movies etc looked alright

Think with 480 is you're making up a hell of a lot of lines of resolution in order to display the picture.

You may know it ready, but a 4k set is -always- displaying 4k resolution, regardless of the input feed. So depending on the TV's processor, that is a lot of blending and creation of pixels which do not even exist with the content

Might be a dumb question... but I bought a 4.4L jug of Mobil 1.



How do I use these markings??
I'm not sure what those intervals represent.
It doesn't even go up to the top of the container anyhow...


They're typically supposed to be marked like this?

Bought me one of these last week while in Bellingham Costco. I think they were $19.99 US. Love 'em. They came with carrying bag and a pair of nice side mirror covers, which aren't in the video below.

old, but good.. (and timely!)

Quote:
Before you read this: Please don't judge me... I'm just sharing my story because people asked...
Wow... okay, I wasn't sure if I was ever going to tell anyone about this, but it's late and I'm sleep deprived so i guess I'll just write it now and regret it in the morning :/
First of all, - just for some background: My mom died right when I was born, (she was actually really, really hot- but this isn't about her. I guess that's fucked up to say, but whatever.) I actually grew up with my dad's family, because my dad has all sorts of emotional issues and he bailed before I was born. So you can see, my childhood was really kind of messed up.
Anyways, growing up I feel like there was always a lot of distance between me and my sister. When I was about 17 or 18 I first noticed that my sister was a hottie.
I don't want to go into too many details about it, but basically what happened is that I accidentally found a video that she made of herself. I knew she didn't make it for me- but I thought she was so fucking beautiful that I watched it twice. I probably would have watched it a hell of a lot more, except that like right around the time I found the video, all this crazy shit went down and I had to leave home. (My dad's family who I was staying with got in bad trouble with the law. I never talk about it).
Sooo... I was totally lusting after my sister at that point. She was also having bad trouble with the law. She was actually in custody when I left home.
My friend and I went to go pick her up. When I saw her that day, after seeing the video, I have to be honest, I just wanted to fuck her brains out. Looking back on it now, it's pretty messed up- but I think she had feelings for me too. She actually kissed me right after we came to get her... and it wasn't a sisterly kiss, you know? I mean, it wasn't like ridiculously sexual or anything, but it definitely wasn't sisterly.
After we left, we all went to crash with my Sister's friends. On the trip there, my friend sort of implied that he wanted to get with my Sister, and I got a little jealous. He's a good looking guy- and even though she was my sister- I just felt like he was competition. Not much else happened between us for a while except some maybe-sexy hugging.
Pretty much everyone in my life at that point was wanted by the government, so we all moved around a lot. I'm not saying that I'm proud of it or anything, but it was kind of an awesome time.
My friend and my sister never hooked up I don't think- but I thought there was some serious sexual tension going on between them. It was around that time that I got really badly hurt in an accident. It was fucked up. I almost died. But when I was in recovery my sister came to see me, and out of the clear blue sky she started gives me this awesome, slow, passionate kiss on the lips.
Sadly (although, I guess for the best) nothing ever came of it. We spent some time apart... and I started to get really religious, so I tried not to think of her that way. It was actually going well for a long time- like I was totally over her. But I have to say, like a year or so after all that stuff went down, we were out sailing (not like a date or anything romantic like that), and she was wearing like the hottest bikini I've ever fucking seen and it brought back all the old feelings. Sigh.
A little while later she actually wound up with my friend from before (the sexual tension guy). I can't say I was surprised.
But even after she was shacking up with my friend, there was one time we were at a party... my friend was inside, and my sister and I were outside alone. It was a really intimate moment. I think something might have happened, except that I killed the mood when I told her that Darth Vader was our father and that I had to go face him.
