    I could never figure out what that Sob liked or didn’t like in pinball.

    He railed on “old man pinball themes” from the 80’s and yet owned a bunch of EMs and BM66

    I think he was just Trying to figure it out like we all are. A fickle bunch

    #1752 71 days ago

    O-din has posted many times that his favorite pin is “Pit Stop.”

    I hear Hollyweird is going to remake a classic movie that should be left alone. They are remaking Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. They will botch this like other remakes. Leave well enough alone with remakes $%;*$@=_

    My bitch has to do with a website that starts with the letter a.

    I have been selling CD's since 2002 there, and for a while a lot of books and other things also.

    For years I was high volume. Now I am semi-retired from that and just have my leftovers still going.

    Every so often they send me a nasty email. unbelievable.

    The last one said I was not providing tracking #'s. (and I have 100% provided tracking #'s for 18 years). My feedback for the last year is 100%, and lifetime 99% (28k feedbacks).

    I loved the a place for a very long time and hoped I never would have to sell anything on the e place again. but soon I may have to deal with the e place again, and the dreaded paypal that goes along with that.

    Everything I have left is out of print, some pretty rare and brings in good money(like 80.00 for one CD), or I would just take the rest of my inventory to the dump and say screw a and e and paypal.

    I hate it when I want to watch something on TV, and something else I do not want to watch is running way past time for it to go off.

    I wish my area had a really good alternative rock radio station. Only one station that I can even tolerate, and when there is a baseball game on they have that instead of music.

    I want to bitch about the misuse, abuse, and overuse of the word, "Hypocrisy."
    My wife just started using this year....it wasnt in her vocabulary for 45 years! (learned from Facebook)
    I hear it in conversation, see it heavily used in some media, even on Pinside!

    It seems to be a buzzword to act as a Judge and Jury over others, and an open ended
    comparison, often a false equivalency, or altered facts, to shame another, or to show superiority
    to ones position, by claiming others are hypocrites.

    In my years of schooled debate, and in life, I found it to be a cheap shortcut to end or replace meaningful dialogue.
    Often a Bogus way to make a point, and believe one has shut down instantly anothers, with adjudication.

    Just my 2 cents, but in dialogue with others, when I hear it used, I know what comes next.

    #1771 56 days ago
    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    I want to bitch about the misuse, abuse, and overuse of the word, "Hypocrisy."

    If you’ll permit me a long quote, I’ve always loved this bit on hypocrisy from Neil Stephenson’s book “Diamond Age,” (great sci-fi set in near-future earth):

    “You know, when I was a young man, hypocrisy was deemed the worst of vices. It was all because of moral relativism. You see, in that sort of a climate, you are not allowed to criticize others-after all, if there is no absolute right and wrong, then what grounds is there for criticism? … Now, this led to a good deal of general frustration, for people are naturally censorious and love nothing better than to criticise others’ shortcomings. And so it was that they seized on hypocrisy and elevated it from a ubiquitous peccadillo into the monarch of all vices. For, you see, even if there is no right and wrong, you can find grounds to criticise another person by contrasting what he has espoused with what he has actually done. In this case, you are not making any judgment whatsoever as to the correctness of his views or the morality of his behaviour-you are merely pointing out that he has said one thing and done another. Virtually all political discourse in the days of my youth was devoted to the ferreting out of hypocrisy.”

    Very Good! sometimes, When I believe we are Truly heading towards Idiocracy, Big words simply become quick Buzzword
    "Labels"
    Add to this the word "Socialism". I dont wish to open this up as a debate here, but in a form of opinion, but when it is used, it can be misused, with frequency, without a definition agreed upon to start.

    We are up to our ass in plastic waste, which only 17% can be recycled. Yet so many products that have 2,3 inner/outer shells, small items with a huge plastic surround, and plastics mixed with foil that will never be reused.
    Think about it, that thin plastic you just ripped off the tea box will still be somewhere on this Earth when you are dead, or 50 years whichever comes first.
    They don't want you stealing that memory card so they put it in a giant thick plastic, then lock it in a rack. I actually remember when plastic was rare in packaging, metal paint tubs, waxed paper straws,plates, cups. Worked fine, single use then it can be burned or it rots naturally.
    I don't care that the oil Industry isn't making as much fuel and needs to maintain profits.
    Try to make 2021 a plastics-reduction year.

    Some kids just invented a bacteria that eats plastic. It is pretty amazing. You will never see it however. It will buried or bought or both. The powers that be like to use this as a platform to scare you to death so you will vote for them then they never do anything about it if they did they wouldn’t use it in the next election. Someone also invented a machine that floats around in the ocean and eats plastic. I’m thinking it isn’t as big a problem as they let on or we have reached the point of no return and we can’t reverse the problem

    #1780 51 days ago

    Can you bitch about not remembering last night? If you can you are not young at heart! Well I guess it wasn’t to bad. My back doesn’t hurt. I guess I wasn’t to out control to have my 300 pound black friend slam my ass into the bed the bear cat brown style! My face does not look Freddy got a hold of it. My guess is I didn’t go running through woods like taz. I didn’t jump out of the bedroom Wind door screen screaming I’m going live in woods! Mind you have to have fire starter in one hand and Rambo knife still in package in the other! One less thing I have to fix I guess. Sounds like a pretty dull affair to me.

    Enough about me. Let’s talk about who-dey I cannot say enough about this guy. It was funny when called him last night. My twin brother grabbed the phone from my hand and started talking to him. Dude he sounds just like you! He looked likes me too. Anyways I called him up he talked to me and my friends. Even though we're annoying drunk. A true friend! if you don’t meet someone like this on pinside....ummmm loosing!

    My bitch is people that come in and tell me I should get alcohol in my arcade.

    Ignoring all the costs ( about a 1/4 of a million for licenses, remodeling, fully stocked bar, etc. ) bars go broke too. And they just don't hand out licenses. Not every location is zoned for it and cities have limits on licenses too.

    Then my 1800 square foot arcade. Two handicap approved rest rooms wipe out about 1/3rd of my space. No basement, so bar, back bar, coolers, etc. Take over half of what is left.

    I'm left with a short bar. 6 -8 stools. A few small tables. No pinball machines and no pool tables. I'd have this cute little boutique bar.

    And being by townhouses and apartments. I'd be the last stop on the way home for the drunks that are broke, mean, ornery, and don't want to go home yet. And when they leave here and run someone over, I'd be the first one sued too.

    Now why the hell would I want to do this ? This is one suggestion for my business I've gotten tired of.

    LTG : )

    #1782 49 days ago

    What if you just served cans of beer? I guess the license is still the same though.

    #1783 49 days ago
    Quoted from swampfire:

    What if you just served cans of beer? I guess the license is still the same though.

    Yes it would be. Along with losing space for handicap accessible bathrooms and cooler.

    Taking out a few pool tables and half the pinball machines would still leave me with this cute little spot that would go broke and close in a month or two anyway.

    And end underage customers coming in. And still baby sitting drunks.

    My guess is one that never spent a few minutes to see if one was already here.

    I have started a lot here, and I always look to see if it has been done already.

    If it has been done already and no posts lately, hell yeah, I want to talk about this, I will revive this topic, and not start a new one.

    And I hope we can get O-din back soon.

    I have a bitch today, a major one. Scammers. Mother fucking scammers. I was just getting to work, giving my keys to the porter to open the gate and I got a call and they said they were the power company and I hadnt paid the bill in two months and they were going to turn the power off withing 45 minutes if I didnt pay with a CC withing that time. My wife pays the bills because I wont wear a mask to go into the grocery store and I knew she had paid, but i also knew we had a new bill at home. It just smelled fishy because of the way the guy spoke and my phone said scam maybe. I hung up and went home to get my bill and call the power company, on the way I called the number that had called me and it said that number wasn't accepting calls at this time, the power company told me there was no disconnection notice but I did owe this months payment. I paid the bill and went back to work. If I had just paid it I would be out a lot of money and what if it was someone who can barely make ends meet and pay their bills. Scammers suck
