Jets clinched a playoff spot last night so we did the logical thing and partied in the streets downtown. There hasn't been playoff hockey in Winnipeg since '96, it's going to be crazy.

And the kings got knocked out by the Flames. Operation regicide was a success.

Apparently that 377773 plate ended up selling for over $261k.

They made $2.2m on 24 license plates in total. Pretty damn crazy.

 

Also something i don't quite understand, but i guess i can have nothing but respect for this lady. A cleaner found 2 rings worth $129k while cleaning the toilet a convention center (i guess they had a jewelry convention again). She "returned" them (not quite sure to whom exactly). It's crazy to think. She probably get's paid around $300 - $400 a month. She finds 2 rings worth more than she has ever made, and will ever make, and she returns them. I don't know if i would have done the same thing had i been in her position.

I have respect for her as well, but as for critical thinking kicking in...what's she going to do with it otherwise though? Try and sell it to a jewelry store? Wear it and hope not to get attacked?

Leave the country, sell it back home, most likely have enough money to retire. I wouldn't sell it here, because it would raise a lot of suspicion. She'd probably get caught and spend the rest of her life in jail. Selling it back home she could probably get $70k - $80k for it. Pretty sure that in most African countries, that kind of money would last you a few decades (assuming you maintain the same sort of lifestyle you previously did).

Hmm maybe, I suppose. And on the topic of what we spend excessive amounts of our money on, YouTube sent me an email today...

Sigh... some people just have too much money. I remember reading a while back about one of the Saudi princes (i think) that owns a diamond encrusted car (either Merc or Rolls). And he asked something like $50k just to look at it or take a picture of it or something. Probably better information somewhere on the internet.

Last night, I dreamed I was walking outside, then I looked down at the grass next to the sidewalk and there were like ~20 clue scrolls scattered around on the ground, so I tried to take a picture of them to send it to Witchy, but then people kept appearing to look at all the clue scrolls on the ground and they kept getting in the way, so eventually I left without taking a picture.

I still like episode one. It came out when I was 9, and I absolutely loved it. I've never gotten over my love of it. To me, episode 3 is the abomination with talking comedy droids. I react to the droids in Episode 3 like everyone else does to Jar Jar. I've only seen episode 3 twice, while I've seen all the others at least a dozen times each (except episode 5 with lacks the big battle that appealed to younger me, so I've only seen if half a dozen times). I used to watch these movies whenever my parents were out late. I watched the final battle in episode 6 so many times I wore out the tape. Now I have to watch the stupid DVD version that ruined the best Star Wars song.

 

I really like Star Wars.

 

 

I got back into playing Silent Hunter 4, and as I am wont to do, I've been brushing up a bit on some of my history. It's been quite an interesting experience for me. So much history, and simply not enough time to do it justice. My education growing up never really touched on the Pacific Theater, probably because Canada didn't participate a whole lot in that area.

The prequels are objectively bad.  That doesn't mean that they can't be entertaining or fun to watch though.

 

It's been too long since I've seen the originals and even then I've only see them each once or twice I think. And that was when I was a little kid. So definitely overdue for a re-watch.

I have been in Spain getting drunk for four nights in a row and living the life with the trampolining team from my university.

Loads of universities go to this one Spanish town with various sports teams competing or just holidaying.

The brochure says 587 people will statistically cheat on their partners during this week (I was not and would never have been one of them, if anything I'm more defensive when drunk)

 

Now I am back in the UK and after sleeping for 15 hours, I am facing the realities of life again.

 

Spain was so amazing, stayed in a great hotel, less than a 5 minute walk from the beach, the nightlife was nice and varied as well.

Would do again 10/10.

 

Only downside was that the group I was with caused 3000 euros worth of damage (not me personally but guilty by association)

and the journey back was a 24 hour drive and we got stopped by French police twice for speeding and had to pay fines in cash on the spot which was very strange to me being from the UK

Ibiza?

 

 

Nope, Salou, a coastal area about an hour from Barcelona 

I keep wishing I was still there instead of being here having to answer 40 questions on Mammalian metabolism by next week  <_<  <_<

Battle of Hoth wasn't exciting enough for you? The comedy droids took away from the seriousness of so 3 but not so much so that it annoyed me. Episode 5 might be my favorite because it doesn't end on a particularly good note, has the best line in movie history and introduces bounty hunters as a large galactic influence. Though there's a lot of controversy in yoda's training thatI have quips wwith

I view episode 1 as a standalone origin story of how Obi-Wan and Anakin came to be Master and Padawan, which was never mentioned in the original trilogy as far as I remember. All the earliest references to Obi-Wan and Anakin never predated their time fighting in the Clone Wars.

I rewatched 4 and 5 last week. In 4, it is implied that Luke's father (unnamed) and obi wan fought alongside one another in the clone wars. Episode 5 reveals that obi wans padawan was Darth Vader. Episode 5 later reveals that Luke's father and Vader are one in the same

Also fun fact I picked up on after rewatching: Leia isn't revealed to be Luke's twin until ep 6, and it doesn't seem that Anakin had any clue she existed (he looked right at her and didnt seem to care about her life in ep 4).

 

2nd note: when Luke flees Dagobah in ep 5, Yoda and Obi wan have a dialogue where obi wan professes anxiety over Luke's potential failure and Yoda assures him by saying "worry not, there is another"

 

And I REALLY dont think he was referring to Leia as I had thought when I was a kid as she possesses no particular skill with the force or inclination to be a Jedi. Could the Sith representative in ep 7 be this "other" ? (As in the guy with the hilt saber)

He was referring to Leia confirmed in episode 6 when Luke is going to turn himself into Darth Vader and tells her that she has all the powers he does

Considering episode 3's ending it's plausible given that both Yoda and Obi-Wan knew about the twins, Yoda could be in fact referencing an unknown power, but in reality it made for a dramatic effect when it came time for the Leia reveal, which I think is what it was.

I found out that one of my tarantulas escaped her enclosure some time last night..... It is just a race against the clock to find her before my roommate wakes up or she winds up dead somewhere.

 

 

 

 

 

EDIT:

 

Found her. <3

“I had a feeling we weren’t coming back from this fight when it began.”

“Do you have any regrets?”

“I don’t. It seems surprising, I know, but I wouldn’t change a thing. This is how it was meant to be.”

“Huh, you never really notice how lovely the day is until you realize you’ll never see it again.”

“Mmmhmm.”

I have slight hopes I'll be able to access Season 5 legally - Normally that would require a 24-month subscription to PayTV for 17€ per month, so essentially 200€ per season as I can get everything else I want through Amazon Prime and Netflix. But there's HBO Nordic which has a monthly subscription, but I have to find a good proxy to use that. Else I'll have to use illegal streaming I guess...

HBO has episodes 1-4 for purchase from what I hear.
