really starting to enjoy Criminal UK. Finished 1st season already on the Netflix. I'll do a write up when I'm done season 2. Good writing.

You sure you want any Fallout 4 with your mods? Or fries with your ketchup?

I was disappointed by Crime Scene season 1 The Vanishing at Cecil Hotel. That place is a verifiable hot bed of drug-fueled murderous rampages and worse, but they give us a boring ass missing persons case of some tourist from Canadia. The only really **** up part of the show was
Spoiler
Spoiler
. I would not recommend that show, maybe season 2 will be better.

But seriously, they could make a 10 season 32 episode-per-season show about the **** up **** that happens at Cecil Hotel here in L.A. and they'd only put a dent in the things that have happened there. The hotel doesn't have a 13th floor, the elevator goes from 12 to 14 because the Nightstalker used to have a semi-permanent residence at Cecil Hotel on the 13th floor.

It actually depends on geography. In certain Asian countries it’s actually four instead/in-addition.

Maybe but I've never been in a Las Vegas hotel (the only ones I've personally been in large enough to verify) that didn't have a 13th floor

I heard Japan skips the 10th floor, and if you ask why you're just looked at weird

@sixty

I don’t know anything about 10; but 4, 9, 13, 42, 43, 49, and 94 would be the unlucky numbers I know of for Japan. 4 sounds like their word for death. Same with 42. 43 sounds like stillbirth and 49 sounds like to get run over. 9 sounds like their words for agony/torture; and 94 = agonizing death. And 13 is international now lol.

So depending on the context the last four may get omitted; and 4/9/13 are frequently omitted.

IDK, I could be wrong abbout 10. You sound like you know way more than I do abou japan and numbers.



OH btw; Despite what the Proud Boys would have you believe, THIS is why people wear full face masks when they go to protests:

The outlet reviewed data and found that those individuals were taking advantage of the tool through free trials that Clearview sent to them. Clearview's marketing strategy included distributing free trials to email addresses of not only agencies but to individual employees. Officers and public employees would then use it, without their superiors knowing in some cases, running 340,000 searches between the summer of 2019 and February 2020, according to the report.

I’m beginning to see why DJ dislikes Dallas. The average temperature is above 70 degrees Celcius; and a protag can’t Seaglide down the 1400m corridor without the local hooligans lobbing molten boulders. Place looks nothing like their website.

There’s a reason it’s called the active lava zone OR the lava lakes. Lava hot.

Preferred Pronoun Set: Mr.
would be funny for people to get upset over the CIA doing that but being okay with assassinations and funding coups


Yah, I know we've supported literal masterminds of atrocity in Central America so I feel this is as **** up and believable as anything the CIA has done to date. Probably getting investigated for saying that.

You are swimming above the lava, not in it. In water. 75-90 degrees is a reasonable approximation for a game. You can't go too far past that bc water stops being a liquid.

The highest reading I’ve gotten is 98 degrees. That was called reloading a save.

I had an hour to play b4 work this morning. I spent that hour doing the entire lava lakes area. Getting the last scans I was missing. Getting a lava lizard egg. Scanning the sea dragon leviathan and doing the entire damn primary containment facility.

Game crashes at the end right before I am going to save. Literal seconds.

I want to scream.
