#13484554 The "Stay Classy, Republicans" Super Nintendo Chalmers Thread

GOP implosion is some fascinating stuff.  Waiting anxiously on Game Change III

The second book was amazing. It actually made me feel a little sympathetic towards Romney, but only a tiny bit because he's still an out of touch shitlord.

Thanks dude. If you're ever in Harvard Sq during the week, hit me up for lunch!


We totally weren't planning on having a second kid yet, but better now than later I guess...haha


I feel you on the climbing thing. We've had a few close calls! Like thelonepig's kid, we have to use the bolt on the door of our condo or else she might go looking for an ice cream truck in the middle of the night or something!

I'm starting a new job after Labor Day and my daughter is starting fulltime daycare tomorrow, so things are going to be a little nuts for a little while until #2 comes in April, then things will be totally nuts. I've been playing Fallout 4 the past couple months and I wish I never picked the damn thing up. It's such a time sink and since I don't have a backlog, I'm going back to reading books on politics to hopefully impart the joy of reading to #1 or start drawing again to impart the joy of art. I can't really think of any announced games coming out in the next year that I'm dying to play so the transition should be easy. Unless Devil May Cry 5 or Metal Gear remakes are announced, I'm pretty sure I'll be game-free until the next Gran Turismo.

Went to an actual comicbook shop today to buy new release comics for the first time in like 20 years. Cashier cracked the spines in multiple places on my 2 books when ringing me up. :SMH:


Guess I'll be heading back tomorrow to exchange them. Hopefully she didn't crack all the spines on the rest of the copies when she pulled them off the rack for me. I've never seen anyone so rough with books that worked in a shop. And for anyone interested in what I got, it was New Superman.

Do you guys think Omega is a shit brand or something?

If you can afford to blow $4k on a watch you're going to pick out out the watch you want.   Not buy some random flash sale item. 
Also mass produced watches don't appreciate in value. Where are you getting this stuff man??
I don't mean to sound harsh, but Fuck .  These things go "on sale" because the prices are greatly inflated and they need to clear inventory.

The co-axial 300M is an enthusiast's watch. At $4k, you can sell it for what you paid for it and more than likely sell it for more before the first service is due at 10 years. That 10 year service interval is partially why the watch is so expensive in the first place because most intervals are 5 years. At that price, you can't lose if you're in the market for it.
Used prices for Omega's aren't going down even for one of their most popular models, the Speedmaster. 5 years ago, you could grab a decent Speedy for around $2k, now, you'd be lucky to find one at $2.7k. Sorry friend, you are so off base with your assumptions about the luxury watch market that you have no idea what you're talking about. You can check sold listings on ebay or the WUS forums to confirm this. I WISH you were right so I could get a birth year watch on the cheap, but that just isn't the reality of the market.

I agree.  If you're gonna drop 4k on a watch go to jeweler and pick out a quality time piece.  If you are looking at a sub 1k piece like a TAG (formula 1 or aquaracer) that's a different story.

As for suggesting going to a jeweler, I should take away your CAG card. :rofl: A couple glasses of champagne and a cheap branded paper bag isn't worth a couple grand to me, neither is the "luxury experience" of a boutique. I'd rather have the D(iscount).

Not looking for an Omega, looking for a Tag. I can't seem to find how to just see Prime Deals for watches, if that's even possible.

Here's your link for Tag's.




Happy Hunting!

Not sure how many watch snobs there are on CAG, but they have the Omega Seamaster 300m Co-Axial for $3900, which is a STEAL. Prices are hitting close to 40% off msrp and way better than you can get from any AD's or other gray market dealers.

If they blowout the VLX at 50%, I might be interested, but I really prefer the spacing of the Kai.

So Sulu is gay in JJverse...ugh. Way to reinforce stereotypes Lin. I thought you'd be better than that especially since Takei had mentioned numerous times to you that Sulu should be straight. The only way I'll accept it is if Kumar is his husband. MAKE IT SO.

Holy crap, my daughter slept through the night last night! Praise the sun!


I only wish I could've said the same for myself :rofl:

Thanks, a routine is something we're still working on, the biggest obstacle for that really is ourselves.


Its not that I mind burping him, its just the rational side of me that thinks it makes more sense if only one of us does the feeding so the other can get some more sleep.


I'm of course learning that rationality has no place in this baby world, and it's more flying by the seat of your pants. Sometimes sans the pants...

Yeah, sticking to a routine is tough at first, but like everything else, you get used to it and you're all still getting used to each other.


I don't think I got a four straight hours of sleep until well after 6 months since I was the one doing night changes. Late night poo clean up is never fun...haha. I feel you on the sleep thing though. While you're going through it, it can really suck hard, but looking back, I'm glad I was deprived of some sleep. Now, when my daughter sees pics/videos of me burping her, she smiles and puts her hand on her chin saying "burp burp!" Then she wants me to pretend to burp her. Dem feelz

Hey brother, congrats on the kid and welcome to the club!


When it comes to sleeping, every kid is different. My two year old still doesn't sleep through the night, but most do by this age. You can manipulate it somewhat by following a VERY strict schedule with a routine ie bath, milk, storytime, etc right before bed and at the same time every single day. The only drawback is that if you screw up the routine, you're gonna pay for it. This also involves a certain amount of crying it out. Personally, we never followed that and my daughter has always kept her own consistent schedule to a certain extent, but my sister went with a schedule and let's her daughter cry it out, which typically lasts for about 15-20 minutes after she's put to bed. My niece sleeps through the night, but she still cries herself to sleep. Your biggest obstacle is the reflux and it should help if he grows out of it. Transitioning to solids should help as well. Like I said though, every kid is different so YMMV.


I wouldn't sweat the burping thing. It's really time well spent with your son regardless of how much of a waste it seems. There's going to come a time where you WISH he'd let you hold him, so really try to enjoy it while you can. Also, I'm sure your wife appreciates the help.


Gaming was pretty easy for the first month or two because of the frequent naps. After that, I don't think I really gamed for maybe 8 months? There was just too much to do to miss it, but not having any games I wanted to play helped more...haha.
