Edit: Not a lot!
My God that Sound of Music gif is fantastic. I didn't know we were having another gif off, here's my entry:

Hmm, thread seems slow (or maybe it's just cause of the weekend), sooo, thoughts on a 32 year old man dating a 47 year old woman, and go....
asking for a friend of course.
Is she hot? And/or rich?
I don't know if she has money, and I don't care. Not a deciding factor. She's super cute. One of those woman that can be cute/sexy/sultry at the flip of a switch. Not completely aware of just how drop dead gorgeous she is. If I had to come up with an example, I'd say similar to how Alison Brie (Community, Mad Men) can be super cute one minute, and with just a look go into an inviting/alluring mode. She's very open, funny, and intelligent. Very fun to be around. Positive, confident, and upbeat. Not to mention beautiful.
Nothing wrong with it, but it depends on his reasons for dating her. I'm the same age but the difference would be to much for me.
He would be dating her because he's always been attracted to older, mature women. They carry themselves differently. Have their priorities in check. He actually wants a real relationship, with an intelligent, thoughtful partner. That's something he usually only sees in an older woman, not some bubble headed blonde that would rather text her friends half the date than talk to you.
If she is attractive and interesting, then why not? The age difference means they will have significant differences in life experience, time periods they grew up in, etc. I dated a 10+ year older woman when I was in my early twenties. Fun while it lasted.
Treat it for what it is. As someone who's done similar (11-year gap), it was fun while it lasted.
Just don't expect talk of kiddies, she's out of season.
p.s. are we officially allowed to refer to her as a cougar? We are? Good. Imma enjoy this.
I would be very interested to see (given how many people are saying that they have had a similar age-gap relationship) exactly why and how their relationships ended.

Are you color blind? (Honest question, 8% of men have some form of color-blindness.)
Do you have any idea how depressing the Holiday's are when only half the Christmas Tree looks lit up? (I'm not color blind, it's just that we can only manage to get through untangling one set of lights before we say "Fuck it")

I use Uncle Gabe as a proxy term, kind of like Santa Clause being your parents buying you gifts.
the you talking about!?!
Maybe your parents had to buy you gifts cause Santa thought you were an asshole. Santa brings me stuff every year. Maybe you should leave some milk and cookies out like I do every year! Maybe you should shut your mouth cause Santa's real and no it doesn't matter that I don't have a chimney! Just shut up! SHUT UP! Not listening, I'm not listening!

When I built my computer I got a 1TB drive. That filled up, so I got a second 1TB drive only for Steam. That is almost full. Now I'll probably grab a 2 TB, although my husband keeps telling me to just uninstall the games I never play
You deserve better. He doesn't understand you.

Pfft. Amatuers. I'll be upgrading myself soon. Keep in mind that all of these drives are mirrored backed up in a sister/twin PC networked to the main machine. That's ~ 20TB
Wow, I just learned 2 things....1. That I can quote my own post, and ....2. I've had my 2TB Game drive named as a 1 TB for the last 6 months.

I was finally able to get it to run mostly okay by turning off vsync, running in borderless window mode, and limiting the fps through afterburner to 45. It mostly only stutters when driving after those tweaks. I haven't updated to the new patch tho, avoiding it. In borderless window, windows desktop does the vsync for you.
That explains why every game (Sleeping Dogs, The Secret World, Diablo 3, etc.) runs so much better in borderless windows for me.
Here's one for MysterD:
We've just installed a new colour printer at work. It's a HP LaserJet Color M451.
Start using it, and it asks me to authenticate my printer cartridges online.
DRM on printer cartridges.
I started buying do-it-yourself refill kits off EBay for the HP ink cartridges because I got tired of brand new $30 cartridges refusing to verify as genuine (they have sensors in the catridges themselves and I've never put anything other than the over priced genuine cartridges in it), asking me to install a genuine cartridge, so I use the refill kits to save major cash on the ink with ink cartridges that never threw that error. Of course, there are the problems with ink and toner out right lying to you about how much is actually left too. It's not a new thing: http://www.slate.com...id_printer.html

Steam Community still retarded as ever. Hasn't Darksider 2 and Brutal Legends been on sale more a billion times now?
Given the obvious faking of the "Community" team gimmick this sale, it wouldn't be a paranoid assumption to consider the "Community" votes to be just as forged and disingenuous, especially for those of us that have been around long enough to have seen the total results of previous votes equal more or less than 100% (notice how such results aren't reported by Valve anymore), the same game going up multiple times throughout the same sale period (supposedly people just can't get enough of "that" game, and therefor it must go on sale a third time), or the same game at first being offered for less of a discount as a Flash than it was in a previous daily only to be corrected to a deeper discount AFTER the vote has taken place (really? people voted for a game to have less of a discount?).
It's been a known fact that Valve must sign contracts with the developers as far as the allowed discount pre-sale (which is how the sale dates have been leaked in the past). Given that fact, and the additional fact that some games are offered as a Flash, but never see the same discount sale wide or as a Daily, means that if a deal is struck with a developer to offer a game at (let's say 66% off) then Valve would have to, at some point, offer that game for that discount during the sale. If the choice of what games go on sale were truly entirely up to the public, the potential for that developers game to never see the same discount as it's competition in the same category or genre would exist, and signing a contract with Valve to "maybe" put your game on sale, while you see your competitors games flourish under the spotlight when they did go on sale, is not a sound business strategy anyone actually trying to promote their game or to make money from it would agree to.
In Conclusion: It's apparent that it's all bull$#!%, but the vast majority of people will forever be as they always have been: sheep. The most powerful thing any one person can weld is the power of the vote, and where there is power, there is corruption. But hey, it's just a video game sale right? At least that type of corruption would never find it's way into anything else we vote for, right?
This message brought to you by the CAG's who have nothing better to discuss because there's no actual deals going on association. I imagine Gabe will be diving into his vault of money Scrooge McDuck style after this sale.

I don't understand why green wouldn't save some of their badge combines for future days since they are already so far ahead. And the way every other team has a near identical score is beyond strange.
It was $2.50 at Amazon earlier in the year, although I suppose there is no telling if Amazon will ever duplicate that again.
I'm playing it now. It's no Blood Money, but I'm enjoying it so far.
Because whoever was supposed to monitor the algorithms that adjust the "count" went to sleep. I swear the counters were static on the first day of the sale and you had to refresh the page for a new total. Also, why is it the total climbing never adjust it's overall speed for any team? your telling me that there are just as many people buying/crafting right now mid-flash sale at 3 AM as there were when it first changed over? or any other time throughout the day? I'm pretty sure "stealing" points from another team just means that someone supposedly used their team change token, taking there points with them, yet out of my 130 friend the total for who's on what team remains the same (23 for lowest team, 26 for highest, others in between) Due to the severe rarity of the tokens themselves, it's painfully apparent that the number of team change overs is pure fantasy. This is depressingly sad. I guess Valve's tactics aren't really producing the sales they thought, or they wouldn't have to resort to this obvious fraud and dickery to inflate them. They do realize that if they played every team closer it would have the desired effect they are seeking, don't they? Damn con artist have gotten so lazy.
