That's what all the dog's yelping and car alarms going off was about. Since I keep nothing of value in my car, I had to go through the effort of putting everything back into the glove box and BriAnna had to do the same.
'Tis a hard life.
When the car alarm went off, I saw two shadows moving hurriedly toward the apartment complex behind my house. There's a phrase I've often heard, but I politize it for our more sensitive viewers.
"You do not poop where you sleep."
I think it's more appropriate to say: "You can find true love when you truly love yourself."
Listening to the song from Imagine Dragons Polaroid I found that all the songs of longing, want, need, or whatever it is that makes us constantly seek the "other half" of us. Often, it makes me want to reach out and shake that person. Or, perhaps, just console them and wait for experience to settle in. This is not something you can be told... it is something you must feel.
Finding love starts within you and, once you love yourself, you can let other people love you.
It's a powerful lesson that ... I feel like I've known for a long time, but only recently understood it deeply. I think I get it now.
I realized today that the one major technological disruption that would save the world is... teleportation.
Seriously, think about it. While the power costs might be exorbitant at first, you could literally work from anywhere and, literally, step into the office. Roads would eventually be obsolete. All of the old locomotion technology would simply become useless.
Unfortunately, so would we. :D
Thinking that you could live in the middle of the Cascades and still go shopping at a small ma-pa shop in Southern Jersey by stepping through a portal.
Now to get over the pseudo potential moral dilemma of "soulcasting" and "teleport corruption". Or, hell, inter-dimensional travel. Hmmm... sounds like a good idea for a story.
Holy geez... I think I'm getting twice my usual speed. I think the acid test is really downloading something from Steam for the fun of it.
Steam shows 14MBps. Note, that's a capital B. I remember when I downloaded the Doom beta that leaked ages ago. 1MB took about an hour with a 2400 baud modem.
Holy geez... I knew times were a changin' but I didn't know by how much.
So, you started placing houses in your settlement and you promptly got frustrated with hilly locations that don't let you put anything down properly.
I'm here to save you from your frustrations!
If you haven't already found it, the secret is the wooden "foundations" that can be found in the Wooden Structure > Flooring sections. This lets you determine how high... or low, you want to set a foundation.
After that, you can have a posh hillside retreat in no time. Or, frustrated with placing big metal structures that fail to touch the ground? This is your answer there, as well. Starlight Drive-in won't be a gapping nightmare anymore! Because you can solve the GAP problem!
Holy geez, now all of my recent settlements look like proper junkyards with a vegetable garden. Oh, and, the custom building products ain't all that difficult once you figure out the stilted foundations. Seriously, I've got some towering mansions in my spaces, now. Enough room for everyone and all my crafting stations.
Oh, and yes, I have so many supplies, I don't even bat an eye at fully encasing each place in junk walls. Whew. I knew these tendencies would be useful somewhere.
Thanks for the share, .
