Might be some Captain America: The Winter Soldier Spoilers
I really liked Captain America The Winter Solidiers. The only things that I didn't quite like were the whole Bucky Barnes plotline where Cap tries to make him remember or something. That was seriously weak. DC made better villains. Hell.. Divergence has a scene like that and it's a hundred time better. There's also the big moral judgement that people trade liberty for security and how that mean we're weak or something. Other than that, I think it was a fantastic movie.

My shower head was leaking. Went to add some thread seal tape and of course.. I broke it. Seriously.. I think I'm the worst handyman ever. I broke more things than I fixed. I guess no shower for me for a while.

If the pipe is still sticking out of the wall, you can still shower, you just don't get the "sprinkle".
And if the shower head was leaking, it was probably corrosion and there would have been no other outcome. Don't berate yourself. =)

Well, I just finished watching the third season of #veronicamars . The whole thing is a masterpiece. Definitely the strongest female-lead I've seen in a teen drama to date. The ending though.. I can't believe they ended a series like that. :(

Now.. I have to find a way to legally watch the movie without too much hassle.

I just LOVE Crusader Kings 2. I've started playing again this weekend. I started as the count of Dublin. I because an Hedonist. Started sleeping left and right and eventually made a lover our of my daugter-in-law. That was great fun! My wife ended up dieing hating me. I remarried with a princess of a spanish King before making a vow of celibacy. I broke up with my daugter in law telling her I prefered my new wife to her and got an honesty trait out of it. 

It's good to be king!

While doing all this stuff, I ended up conquering more than half of the Ireland provinces. I build 2 Duchy before I became the actual King of Ireland. As soon as they put the crown on my neck, I died of a natural death. My 10-years old grandson inherited everything. I wonder if his life will be as fucked up as his grandfather's lol.

If you're looking for great tutorials, there's some pretty well-made one on YouTube which gets you from nothing to knowing what you're doing. My favorite one was definitely the one in Ireland. It's long but it's terrific to watch because you end up understanding what's happening. I wouldn't be playing CK2 without it.

.NET Programmer, gaming enthusiast
Introduction

I've always loved programming.  It was video-games that made me want to become what I am. Working for Ubisoft was the dream of my life for many years. I liked drawing too but I loved computers as well so I was pumped in 2003 when I started my DEC in Computer Science. I went through it, learned A LOT and finished 3 years later, ready to become a programmer. I worked for NeXion / Connexion-Lanaudière, a web company that specialized in the creation of small business website. I learned more stuff there then I dare realize, thanks to the wonderful  people I met there. I was not done however. In 2010, I became a Bachelor in Software Engineering after studying 4 years at the École de Technologie Superieure. Even before I finished my degree, I started working for SNC-Lavalin Inc as an analyst-programmer. I work there to this day.

Great experience! I ate a Smoked Meat Poutine and it was pretty tasty and good. We were a group of 10 people and the service was impressively fast compared to other restaurant in the area. I recommend it if you want to eat some Fast Food.

Great special where 2 people can eat for 22$. Food is really good. Service was perfect! It can be a little noisy because people often bring kids or come in group. Check it out.

Hamburger was alright. There didn't bring anything but ketchup or Mayo to put in it. French fries were way too salty. The waitress are constant fear of wardrobe malfunction which is both funny and sad. Service was fast and painless.

Service was lame but at least, it was fast. I took the cheapest plate and it tasted good. Work if you're going in a group. Do not go there on a date.

Food was okay but they fake gastronomy. It's plain food but priced high. Service was truly stupid but in the end, I was happy with what I ate even though it was expansive.
