Random thing you love right now that doesn't deserve its own thread

Also, Donkey Kong GB is REALLY GREAT. It's often overlooked because people assume it's just a downsized port of the arcade game. The first few levels are pretty much straight from the original, but then it turns into an amazing little platformer. I believe this is the first game where Mario can do his high backflip etc. It's far too good for the console it was released on. Really surprising!

Edit: "Too good for the system it was released on" feels like a bit much considering some of the other GB gems, but I'm just really excited about it!

I loved Donkey Kong KB. I was just the right age when it come out for it to be a perfect long car trip game.

The person I am supposed to find in my current quest in AC Odyssey is named...

Testikles.

I think Ubisoft is trolling me.

That quest is baller.

You have to be nuts.

Makes you really grow a pair.

I finished the saga of Testikles. It is, in fact, baller. Not least because Alcibiades puts in a double-entendre laden appearance.

I really love this game!

Die Hard is my favorite Christmas movie.

Welcome to the party, pal!

Now I have a machine gun, too. Ho. Ho. Ho.

Obra Dinn is blowing my mind right now.

A great friend drove me to the appliance store so I could buy a microwave. I wouldn't have been able to get one until I have leave in Feb otherwise, because I didn't realise the delivery for these places is "in 2-5 business days" and I can't be like "can you deliver it next Saturday". Now it's a diet of TV dinners for me! (jk, some instant food will be had but I do cook).

Also a great gwjer gifted me some games to cheer me up. Mission accomplished!

Just had my first pinion nuts, in a nougat and caramel bar, and they are *sublime*. Mild, rich nuts, reminding me of macadamias, with a brown sugar nougat and an amazing caramel making up the candy. Totally worth the price. Not at all piney like I expected, but instead a fatty and delicate nut flavor.

I think you mean pinyon or piñon. "Pinion nuts" are a car part. And yeah, pinyon nuts are great. Did you get New Mexico ones?

Yes. Buffet's in Albuquerque. (Yeah, okay, Pinyon.) Really, really good.

I just saw they are finally coming out with a sequel to Unbreakable. Looking forward to it!

2nd sequel.

You might want to watch Split before it comes out.

Peanut butter buckeyes. Yummers.

Huh I had no idea that was in the same universe.

Yeah, it was the big Shamalan "twist", seeing that.

So, St. Louis has this insanely cool museum that largely defies description. It’s the number one attraction we insist friends and family take in. But it’s so hard to describe, many skip it. Others who go have the same problem describing it. But every person who goes starts planning a return visit.

Apparently, what the museum was waiting for was drones, to really immerse you in what it is. On the one hand, though, it’s like a spoiler. Seriously, entering the place is like entering through a looking glass. The wonder and amazement is part of the the experience.

The City Museum is a found objects art museum, using elements of the city and its architecture to create art that you don’t just look at, you experience. It’s a playground that invites adults to participate. It can scare you, but mostly delights you. And I mean it when I say they want adults. The Mueum is open late on the weekends and has a bar. But it is still super kid friendly.

I’ve watched glass blowing, made custom shoe laces, crawled hundreds of feet under a floor, went down a two story slide, and watched fish in a giant aquarium. Nothing may be the same on any visit, as it continues to evolve.

I had to add this second video, because the roof is batsh*t crazy. Plus, there is someceven cooler shots in this one.

The Shyamalan twist in Split is that it doesn't suck.

The City Museum is so amazing - we took a family roadtrip to St. Louis over Thanksgiving '17 in large part just to visit it. Hoping next time we can get there in roof season.

My daughter was just telling me a story about one of the times she brought a friend home from college and took her. She said that her friend seemed kind of put out that they were going to a some museum at 9pm instead of going out to a party. Jo just told her, you might be surprised.

Here is another drone clip that is mostly outside. Its not the roof, but the side, well, patio deck?

Last video on my afternoon obsession. This is pretty good video explaining what you are seeing and showing it in use.

Heh. City Museum is the one attraction where every time we go I think "will this be the time we legitimately misplace one of our kids?" Some of those tunnels and hallways are just bonkers.

I get to go home from the hospital today, see my wife, rest in my own comfy bed, play Yeehaw Skyrim for the remainder of my vacation, and hit our yearly deductible on day one.

Oh yeah, and I still have my new PC from TheGameGuru waiting in my car for me to set up.

Sounds like a pretty good way to kick off 2019.

Definitely gonna check those lottery tickets in my wallet, too.

My monthly budgeted electric bill got reassessed down $39 for next year!

It's likely due to the new HVAC system we've had now for a full year and a new washer/dryer for November/December. I even had a credit for the month December!

Folks, remember you still have a couple of days to come post your GOTY list right over here!!
Come show those games some love.

My niece and nephews were over today and the house was brimming with their giggles. Our niece, who is 1, was having an absolute ball playing with a container of christmas baubles. Tipping them all out to carefully place them each back in, with a gleeful grin of success each time. It looked so fun my wife and I had to join in. We spent quite a while making a co-operative joy out of it.

Also, my wife pushed for us to start playing Jenga and Connect 4 together recently. It was more fun than I had expected! We are aiming for occasional board game nights from now on.

Try pick-up sticks and Ker-Plunk too.

Wait until she discovers boxes!

The London Medieval Murder Map.

It's an interactive Google Maps display of London in 1270 or 1560, with clickable markers for each murder. I've already got London on the brain from playing AC: Syndicate lately, so this is fascinating to me.
