    BD Wong can do no wrong. Surprised to see Ricky Martin is still such a fox.

    So I’m sitting on the couch, watching old man Meeko wander around the house (13 year old Keeshond that’s slowing down/nerve issues in the back half). Well, just as he goes out of sight I hear a crash from the kitchen. I leap up and get in the kitchen in about one bound. He’s just standing there looking at me. The noise wasn’t Meeko wiping out, it was Scarette’s purse falling off the table.

    Fuck me, my heart rate hasn’t spiked like that in years.

    There has been several times I hear a kid screaming like they've lost a finger or an eye and I come sprinting...

    ...just to find they decided to scream bloody murder for ABSOLUTELY NO REASON AT ALL. They look at me smiling, like, what? haha just trying things out.

    Fuckin' kids, man. I lose a few years every time shit like that happens.

    Random tech question for anyone. I have a Logitech G502 mouse, and it's been wonky for a while lately. Two of the buttons are supposed to be set for page up/down, but they constantly just...stop doing that and instead switch to back/forward, so the webpage I'm looking at and trying to read suddenly goes back a page. Very annoying. I have to close down Logitech Gaming Software and reopen it, and then it resumes working. Logitech also started using this whole other program, G HUB, that I guess also has to be running? I dunno, but in that program, you can also set keys (why are there two programs to set the same keys in? the former program can already set different keys for different programs [Microsoft Word, a browser, etc.]), and I found the page up/down keys in G HUB set to forward and back, so aha I thought. Maybe there's a discrepancy between the programs and it's shorting out sometimes or something. So I fixed these particular mouse keys to be page up/down in both programs. So far so good.

    But now.....when I'm viewing any webpage that can scroll up and down, the mouse buttons for page up/down jump like two or three times as far as they used to. Like on reddit one click will send me sailing past like three other threads or images. I have no idea why it started doing this, didn't do it before. Fucking software shit gah. Any ideas?

    EDIT: Wait a goddamn minute. Do you think it's jumping twice as far because both programs are set to page up/down and it's getting twice the direction? The software couldn't be this fucking stupid right!?

    Okay so I closed G HUB to see if that did anything, while keeping the other program open. Now when I went to click the mouse button for page down...the print window opens!?!? Jesus save me. So I went back into the gaming software program to find that my profile was just royally fucked up. I dunno how it happened, but I suddenly had profiles I don't recall making and the defaults were weird as hell. Sigh. So I redid my profile to my settings and saved it and I think that fixed it. For now. Will have to see what happens if/when I ever reopen G HUB.

    You can scroll past me at your leisure. I'm mostly talking out loud at this point to work through it.

    I have always been fascinated by mega-tsunamis. Add 'terrified' to that list. It seems the largest recorded mega-tsunami in history was not long ago. Not long ago at all.

    It occurred in 1958 in Alaska in a place called Lituya Bay. At its highest point, the wave was as tall as...1720 feet. That's 524 meters. That's nearly twice the height of the Eiffel Tower.

    That's unfathomable. Can you imagine such a thing bearing down on you? That's higher than whatever wave Hollywood ever conceived.

    The Petronas towers below are 451 meters high.

    It's hard to put in perspective that height and the damage from the wave.

    Red is where the landslide occurred. Yellow is pointing to the the dead treeline caused by the mega-tsunamis.

    From mega tsunamis we go to child names. Elon Musk's infant son goes by the name X AE A-XII. I wonder how the boy feels about that.

    So far he doesn't feel shit. He doesn't even know what a name is.

    Where's our interview with Kal-El Cage? Has he grown up normal?

    When you know you'll always have older puppers in the house:



    EDIT: there's a step or two from the house to the garage. Meeko's back end is going, and this is helping him getting in and out of the house. It was all black, and that scared the shit out of him. A little high vis paint, and he's like, "Oh, there IS something there!".

    EDIT 2: And I've given up on cleaning the exterior of the garage / house door. Dogs pawing / jumping at it to come in just isn't worth the effort.

    Wrong. Wrong wrong wrong wrong wrong. Absolutely. If you don’t like something, you don’t have to watch/read/listen etc. to it. But fuck you for censoring it for everyone else, and silencing voices you don’t personally agree with.

    Edit: this is a general “you” I’m referring to, I’m not yelling at you personally.
