My primary thought after just having seen Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is that there needs to be a cut made shown entirely from the perspective of Groot as per the opening sequence.

My fiancee and I are in Rockford on a cheap weekend excursion. We spent a few hours at the riverwalk, hitting all the Pokestops while there and had a picnic lunch. We checked into our hotel room (with a river view, only cost $5 for the upgrade) and took a nap for a while. We had dinner at a hibachi grill, and are planning to see Guardians of the Galaxy 2 before heading back to the room. Tomorrow we may do a little window shopping before heading home.

It was also a good excuse to take the new truck out on the highway and give the engine a good clean burn. No problems seen with the longer trip at highway speed, so I feel pretty good about that.

Happy Towel Day to all you hoopy froods out there.

Resharing here because I'm sure others will have some input. What type of things have you had to look up for your games that would likely land you on a federal watch list if taken out of context?
If you support gaming, then you need to support legislative measures to keep browsing information private and secure. I was just thinking about some of the odd things I have had to look up at various points for gaming, and I realized that if taken together without context, they paint a very disturbing picture. These include (and by no means are limited to):

- Lockpicking techniques
- Various anatomical and mechanical aspects needed to create artificial limbs
- Torture devices and techniques
- The viscosity of blood
- How much voltage the human body can withstand
- The energy output of a flamethrower
- The amount of energy stored in a 100 kt bomb and what it's damage output would be like in downtown Chicago

My truck should now be kitted out; I picked up a few emergency repair supplies for that just in case scenario, got some adhesive velcro pads and mounting tape to put in my mp3 player and charging station, got a new cell phone mount for the vents, and a new center console for organizing my loose bits and bobs.

Also did about a 5k bike ride with Pokemon Go. I'm up to 63 Charmander candy, I have enough Geodude candy to get a Golem, enough Slugma candy for a Macargo, enough Onix candy for a Steelix, and FINALLY got a damn Sun Stone. Not sure yet if I want to use the Sun Stone on my Sunkern or one of the two Gloom that I have ready for Bellosom.

In today's 'what the fuck' news, apparently there was a baby possum in my washing machine. The thing is in the basement and there is absolutely no exposure to the outside, so we have no clue how it got in there.

I scooped it in a bucket and left it outside. If it was faking being dead, it will run off. If not, there's a neighborhood fox that I think will take it.

While not directly a wood working tool, I do have a new tool that I will be using for moving supplies and finished projects. It's going to be a hell of a lot easier moving things in this than my Honda Civic.
Here's the new (used) truck I got today. It's a 96 Dodge Dakota, v6, 167000 miles, only one previous owner. For as old as it is, it's in terrific shape. For where I'm at right now, it fits my budget and fits my needs, so I'm happy with it.

The last truck I went to look at seems like a pretty good deal. It's a 96 with 167,000 miles on it, but it's in great shape and doesn't have any major problems that I can find. It certainly seems to be a better alternative than just about anything else I can find locally. I'm going to give it one more look over tonight, and as long as I don't find anything else glaring I think I'm going to make an offer on it.
