    Well, I had an eventful morning today. I painfully learned that Walleye have teeth. And don't, for whatever reason, let a rather large crayfish get a hold of that bit of skin between the ring and pinkie fingers. I tried to use it for bait, but since nothing wanted to take the sacrificial offering in return for a couple photos, I released the crayfish into the wild with a hole ready for a tail piercing.

    One bad ass crayfish if I say so myself. I'll probably see it again next time I go to Blue Marsh Lake, only next time it will have its tail pierced and tattoos on its claws.

    That's funny (painfully so)! I learned a painful lesson today as well.Even when your camera is setup for fast action photography, dragonfly's are a royal pain in the ass to capture in mid-flight. 160 photo's, 1 good shot. That and I got sun burned trying get this picture because I live in the damn desert :D

    Wow awesome shot Vegas, how do you think the shot turned out? Is there anything you were aiming for in particular with this shot?

    I was aiming for the dragonfly but it was pure luck that shot was in focus. I had the camera in high-speed drive mode, with AI servomotor (center focused with 9 point expanded focus assist) using a 50mm lens. It was hell keeping that thing in my sight, the only reason I got the shot was the dragonfly kept flying in the same basic area for about 30 minutes giving me a lot of chances LOL!

    So I finally got RoS and began playing after a very long D3 sabbatical starting with the barbarian and now on the demon hunter, I would like to thank the Gods for the following:



    • That auction house abomination is gone! I'm actually finding good loot for the first time since I first played D3!
    • The demon hunter FINALLY has some teeth to his/her attacks! (gives me hope for the wizard)
    • Yaaaaaa a campaign mode for leveling up!
    • I'm glad :ban: Jay Wilson :ban: is finally out of the Diablo picture! IMO he was what hosed it to begin with and his lame stewardship ultimately got me to quit playing the game, if you ask me he made it for himself and didn't give a rats ass who else liked it. Now it's actually feeling good again :) yaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
    My only humble request to the Gods now is someone at Blizzard realizes those stationary pink spinning arcane lasers are so out of place, there is something just aesthetically wrong about them! They feel like they belong in an old school 1980's arcade game such as Robotron IMO :cheers:

    I now digress.

    I agree 100%. - pink lasers do not belong in Diablo.

    Awesome pic of that dragonfly!

    Amazing Dragonfly pic there! I love how it's a bright orange and not the common greens with occasional black with blue highlights around where I'm at.

    I'm getting this bad boy sometime this week(end?), it will hopefully ship out tomorrow.

    I wish I could mod them to look like the spinning fire sticks from super mario! Much more appropriate.

    Nice Venom, that would be perfect to mount a GoPro on!

    Vegas, there's a camera accessory made specifically for the Alias.

    Also, I watched a wind test vid of the Alias and this thing can hold its own in post-tornado warning winds of up to 50 mph winds. Might go in even higher wind speeds.

    Went to lunch with coworkers today and by chance sat next to Nicholas Cage and Carrot Top. The lady talking to them I think was annoying them, my coworker was a bit star struck as well, that's me leaning out of the picture so she could get her shots. In fact she stole my seat when I went to the restroom hence why I have a purse next to me. I think that purse matches my my black attire well.

    How is everyone? Been a while since we've heard from people!

    Hey Ducha how's it going? I look at this for posts most days, as Venom would say lurking, but posts are not what they were in the buildup to the release of the game.

    pain is getting my cock trapd in my jeans zipper at work last night, was in the loo for 30 mins, coworkers wondering wtf i was doing in there by the scream of pain.
  • #14681
    I usually overthink everything before i post which makes me actually not post anything at all... Kind of ironic to say that when i have 3.6k posts i know. People change, give me a break!
