  1. If the military and law enforcement have manditory retirement ages, so too should Congress, SCOTUS, and POTUS!
  2. Not a bad set up for $800.00. The only negative I see is it has DDR4 instead of DDR5 RAM, but most people won't see the difference, and maxing out at 128GB RAM is cool. Looks like the video card is way better than the one I posted.
  3. https://www.cnn.com/2024/02/28/politics/mitch-mcconnell-stepping-down-leadership-senate-gop/index.html About fucking time, but not soon enough! I wonder what psychopath republican will replace him, though. I am guessing it will be Thune.
  4. Yeah, that PC probably is more than you need, but you can certainly game on it if you needed to. It would be super fast for just day to day stuff, with the M.2 drive, and I5 Processor, alone. If all you are doing is grading papers, word processing, and web browsing, you could go with something less expensive like this one and still be decently future proof: https://www.ibuypower.com/store/rdy-element-mr-001 *ASROCK motherboards are made by ASUS, which is a good brand.
  5. If I were looking, I'd get this one. https://www.ibuypower.com/store/rdy-trace-7mp-005
  6. At my job we had a custom PC built for VR purposes, and we used: https://www.ibuypower.com/.
  7. No accounting for taste but I respectfully disagree!
  8. I have a 2005 Dell that refuses to die! I never use it anymore, but I zoomed on it the last time I was at a Nightly Zoom party.
  9. Yeah I would love to go to a pub in London. I would love to get a real IPA in the UK LOL! I love to drink the Americanized West Coast IPAs, but would like to sample a real one.
  10. The Wire is waaaayyy overrated. Sopranos, Sons of Anarchy, Dexter, Breaking Bad, Better Call Saul, Boardwalk Empire, and Rome are just a few examples of shows that totally blow it out of the water.
  11. Hi all! I posted in the Flying thread and and this inspired me to create this one.I am travelling and will be on a 19 hour layover in Heathrow Airport London March 9-10, at Aerotel near Terminal 3. I am looking to do something for a few hours while there, and was wondering if anyone has helpful suggestions on what to see. Destiny was kind enough to suggest taking the Elizabeth line Tube to central London. I was wondering for those who are in the know about London (this is my first time there), especially our UK Nightly members, if there is a good place to go for some brief site seeing and a good place for dinner. Hell, maybe even meet up with a nighly member there, if feasible! Please give me some recommendations!
  12. I love travel, but hate flying. I have a trip coming up in about a week, and I am getting nervous. I am going to Prague, Czech Republic and while I am excited, I am really not looking forward to the 20+hour flight time! On the way there, I fly to from PHX to Charlotte with a 4 hour layover, then to Madrid for another 4 hour layover, then finally Prague. On the way back, it's from Prague, to London Heathrow Airport, where I will stay 19 hours. I kinda wish I had more time in London to see some sites, but since I am not familiar with the Heathrow Airport area, I will probably just hang out at the hotel Aerotel. Does anyone know the London Heathrow area very well? Like what is there to do for a few hours, besides hanging out at the airport?
  13. Agreed, the 16 GB RAM is a bit low, but RAM is cheap these days and an easy install. Since you are looking to get a whole new computer, Jacob, the Aurora looks (on paper) to be a good rig. If it was me, and my desktop was working fine still, and as long as the PC can run Windows 11, I would consider just upgrading the graphics card to one that will run the games you play, the RAM, and possibly the power supply. This is assuming you are using an M.2 or SSD for a boot drive. If you have a mechanical hard drive, might as well just get a new computer, though.

    Creed 3

    Here are my favorites in order: 1. Rocky 3 2. Rocky 1 3.Rocky 2 4. Creed 5. Creed 2 6. Rocky 4 7. Rocky Balboa 8. Rocky 5 I like all the Rocky universe movies that I have seen. Still haven't seen Creed 3, but I have a feeling no Rocky, even just a cameo, in it is a deal breaker. Creeds 1 and 2 were good films, but I still have to rank the first 3 Rocky films higher.
  15. I am sure a whole album will be dedicated to their inevitble breakup, and Swifties will then hate football with the fury of a thousand suns.
  16. For you Delta flyers out there! https://www.cnn.com/travel/maggots-delta-flight-turnaround-amsterdam/index.html
  17. Super genius anyone, really.
  18. Finally saw this the other night. I was in a shitty mood so it did help with that. Probably one of the weaker Thor movies with the first still being my favorite, and Ragnorok being a very close second. THor 2 was OK to me. I really enjoyed the goats.
  19. I think America the Beautiful should be the national anthem instead.
  20. I knew Dio died of cancer, but didn't know what kind.
  21. Toby Keith died at 62 from stomach cancer. Not a country music dude here, but poor guy. Young and a painful way to go.
