Rain is fun and all until you have to cycle through the stuff.

I like the rain the same way I like the snow. Inside near a heat source watching other people suffer in it. Rain makes a soothing sound at least.

Oh and Maz, haven't had use for the rainy mood link you provided... because it's been raining every single day for like amonth now. There's been mybe two days where we've had sunshine and only very little rain, but anyways.


Preaching to the choir, mate. It's been raining here since we first discovered the damn country.

That's how I found out I needed new shoes last time. Smiley: lol

Also, snow > rain, but rain > wind. I hate windy weather, which is awesome when you live on a damn island. Smiley: glare Of course, wind > heat. I hate it even more when it's hot and there's no wind at all. Suffocating.

I don't mind rain so much. My only issue with it is that it has a tendency to break vital things like laptops, cigarettes and phones. Other than that, it's just water. The problem is: when it rains, it's usually not just rainy, it's also windy. Wind plus rain is the worst thing ever.

Wind plus snow when it's not freezing enough for it to be proper snow is the very worst. It's near freezing but you can't wipe it off like proper snow because it'll be molten as soon as it hits you.

I once cycled 25km through that, cycling straight up against the wind to boot and I didn't have my gloves with me. My hands have never hurt as badly as they did then, they were practically frozen to my handlebars and holding them under cold water was like pouring boiling water over them.

Ugh, there's very little likable about that freezing rain, slush, sleet, ice, wet snow, half-melted hell that is within a couple degrees of freezing.

About 1 or 2 degrees above freezing with mixed precip, and wind has to be about my least favorite weather to be caught out in.

Marching several miles in 120/48+ degree weather is no picnic either, especially when you're carrying 40 pounds plus of equipment and armor, and wearing fairly thick clothes. I'm not certain which weather I hate more from an objective standpoint, because I've never really spent much time in frozen weather. I mean, we've had 4+ feet of snow here, but I've always hid myself inside my home when that happens so I've never been in it. If I could have avoided the heat march I would have as well.

All the talk about how "we're destroying the world," reminds me of these weather patterns (along with tornadoes, hurricanes, etc) , and makes me think we're in the right and it's all in self defense.

If you like rain, move to the Oregon coast. We actually haven't gotten much rain this year, (I blame global warming) but we normally get about 80 inches a year. It's insane. We joke around here that we have two seasons: rain, and summer. That's actually one of the reasons I like Eugene, it has actual seasons. I just hate winter there, because it gets cold enough to snow every year, and typical temps are in the 30's. On the coast it's usually in the high 40's and low 50's during the winter, so it's a pretty big difference.

Also, I hate wind. Like a lot. It scares the crap out of me. High winds do anyways. I'm not even really sure why. When I was younger and saw Twister I briefly entertained the idea of being a tornado chaser as a career. Then when i was 20 there was a huge wind storm where I was living and it scared me so bad i stayed inside and hid under a blanket. I didn't go to class that day, thankfully I had the day off work or I probably would have called in lol.

That would be a prime reason to love the winter. Winter is pointless if there's no ice and/or snow.

And I'd rather deal with wind than rain, wind just makes you go either slower or faster but it's no big deal either way. Rain is cold and wet and horrible.

I dunno. Saturday was pretty windy here, dry and windy. Spent all day out in and my lips are chapped and driving me nuts. Would have much preferred rain. Than again, I suppose if I couldn't stand the rain I'd probably move or something already. Smiley: rolleyes

Jesus Christ in a handbasket, I just passed out in a dream for the first time ever. That was unpleasant.

Had a dream which started out weird and got worse until it became a nightmare. I don't remember much from it, except that I was in a swimming pool at some point and I found a "madeupname" spider the size of a tarantula, colored blue and red and capable of walking on water. Some girl picked up the spider and wanted to show it to me, but I told her I suffered from arachnophobia, at which point the bitch decided to walk towards me while holding out her hand containing the spider. For some reason, I was unable to move backwards and the last thing that happened before I woke up was that she came close enough to open her hand and drop the spider on me. It was then I lost consciousness within the dream and woke up with a silent scream stuck in my throat and sweat pouring off me.

Man, I hate dreams that turn nightmare like that. One moment I'm hanging out in the pool with a chick and the next it's like The Ring and Arachnophobia mixed together in one.

Video game spiders are cartoony enough that I don't care.

Photos of real spiders, though... ugh. And real live spiders of all sizes just make me uncomfortable. Big ones scare the crap out of me. Physical contact with a big one is apparently the threshold where my brain can no longer deal with the stress and shuts down.

Hell, even thinking about the scene from the dream is enough to give me goosebumps and all. Being confronted by your biggest fear and being unable to do anything about it. Nasty experience. Good thing it was only a dream.

My biggest fear are leg injuries. Even in movies I have to look away when someone gets a major leg injury. Not like a twisted ankle, but like objects puncturing, or breaks that bend the leg in the opposite direction or amputations, even the sound of a leg bone breaking is enough to make me squirm. That shSmiley: madt gets to me like nothing else.

You should get a cat, when I see a spider I just pick up my cat and point him at the spider. Cat gets a snack, the spider is dead and I get some entertainment.


Also, if this list was accurate I'd be one of the best concert photographers in the world.

So many terrible compositions, technically bad photos and boring moments.

I spent a year at a school for gymnasts and those guys had some nasty stories that made even me queasy.

Warning: nasty mental images incoming.

One of the guys there told me about this one time where they went to a tournament and some dude on the trampoline team landed the wrong way on his foot. He landed on the side of his right foot instead of on the sole and the impact caused his foot to bend up sideways and snap off at the ankle like a dry twig.

Then he showed me pictures taken immediately after the accident (for insurance). Smiley: frown

This is the most brilliant thing ever. Ever.



It is terribly sad that you all can't understand Dutch because this is hilarious. I hope it still sort of works if you can't understand the Dutch but it's 2 actors acting out Facebook in real life. Including one of them going to the office of a newspaper with the question if they want to publish that she's become friends with several people because "people like reading that stuff".

That particular coffee, Kopi Luwak, is the most expensive coffee in the world. And Aeth is drinking a beer made out of it.

The beer in question being Kopi Loewak by De Molen. It's a rpetty damn good stout with lots and lots of coffee flavours and a little fruitiness in there as well. Surprisingly it's not bitter at all even with the coffee and the 83 IBU.

Edit: Or maybe I'm just jaded about the bitterness after all the hop bombs I've had over the past few months.

Edit2: Protein, this should be moderately interesting to you, from the wiki article on Kopi Luwak:
Research
Several studies have examined the process in which the animal's stomach acids and enzymes digest the beans' covering and ferment the beans.[12][13][14] Research by food scientist Massimo Marcone at the University of Guelph in Ontario, Canada showed that the civet's endogenous digestive secretions seep into the beans. These secretions carry proteolytic enzymes which break down the beans' proteins, yielding shorter peptides and more free amino acids. Since the flavor of coffee owes much to its proteins, there is a hypothesis that this shift in the numbers and kinds of proteins in beans after being swallowed by civets brings forth their unique flavor. The proteins are also involved in non-enzymatic Maillard browning reactions brought about later by roasting. Moreover, while inside a civet the beans begin to germinate by malting which also lowers their bitterness.[15][16]
