  1. I bought a 2020 Marlin 7 a few months back and have been having a blast improving my skills. There were a couple of things about the bike that weren't ideal but at the price-point it was pretty solid. The three main things it doesn't have that I would like are a 1x11 or 1x12 groupset, tubeless tires, and a dropper post. I'm trying to rationalize if it is worth it or not to make these upgrades. The bike itself was just $800, and looking at something like the SRAM NX Eagle groupset would be about $370 before the bottom bracket. This is going to be half the cost of the bike. The overall range would slightly decrease from my 2x9 drivetrain that came with the bike but I have seen my chain slip gears as I'm landing from larger jumps, so a clutched derailleur would be nice. The wheels are not tubeless ready so I would need to replace those, which ends up getting quite expensive. The dropper post is doable, but was hoping I'd be able to get rid of the left hand shifter to free up room for the post. So it probably isn't really worth it, is it? I'm probably just bored/money is burning a hole in my pocket. What are yall's thoughts?
  2. Didn't Brad have a long history of substance abuse?
  3. You sure about that? The lenses are supposed to have a focal point at infinity so you should be able to see fine in them. I never felt that HL 1 or 2 relied on jump scares too much. I do feel like VR is the next logical choice for the HL franchise seeing as how each game had huge innovations to the genre. Be it in-game scripted scenes, physics, realistic lip syncing, etc. A big game needed to be made to help push VR technology and convince people to jump on board. This game has the opportunity to get the buy in needed to expand the platform.
  4. Can't wait! Got a Vive on day one, been holding off buying the index controllers but if you buy the controllers you get this for free, so I guess I have my excuse now! Hopefully this will be the convincing title to get people to start really buying in. Valve would be the ones to pull that off.
  5. I played on the original Project1999 server for a few years, was part of the world first Tunare kill. Did a decent amount of raiding but the endgame drama was pretty brutal. Had an absolute blast though throughout. They should have most of the kinks worked out this go-around. They recently have made a few changes to be closer to the original, such as hotbar restrictions and changing of the pet window which seem like they will be pretty obnoxious. Its a great game that holds up in terms of the reward cycle but it requires a huge time commitment.
  6. They were stock rims on a Camry...hardly an extravagant vehicle. I just want the OEMs.
  7. Had my wheel stolen over the weekend from my gated apartment complex. Thieves only had two blocks so the car was sitting on the front rotors. I'm hoping there is no damage. I'm considering getting wheel locks but I know that a dedicated thief is going to be able to get through them. Do any of y'all have any experience with them? Is it worth it? Will it do nothing? I have concerns that now that they know where I live they'll hit me again.
  8. Some people use the leg extension machine to do hip thrusts/glute bridges. I'm assuming this was her intent.
  9. Thats slick! Did you make the whoopie slings or did they come with the suspension system? Do you have a link?
  10. Went on Friday for my birthday dinner. Great food, GF had the short rib (which is insane, never saw a short rib so giant) and I had a ribeye. The smoked gouda mac n cheese was divine as well. I will echo what others said, Pappa's had a better steak but if you want the wood-fired taste you get with BBQ, STQ brings it hard. I'll definitely go again.
  11. They have standard wings. Wingstop is not top tier or anything but its way better than BWW, that place blows.
  12. Oh wow I didn't know that! That is great news.
  13. I don't know how they didn't get distracted by all of the oddities on display at Ripley's Believe it or Not...
