The anti🚫-derailment🚃 & thread🧵 hijacking🔫 thread🧵 ⁉

I would have hoped that they would use IEC sockets… But I know deep in my heart of course they don’t.

Them car sockets are supposed to be waterproof / dustproof or whatever. So IEC is right out. But they could at least have standardized around one type of plug, because obviously neither is better than the other one. But no… Of course not.


Looks like COVID-19 is officially on the way out: I just watched yet another ad for those stupid Peloton indoor bikes, and they’re $400 off now. I guess Peloton has realized the confinement money tree will soon lose its leaves.

I figured it was because they are trying to raise money

Well duh. Peloton gear is rebranded el-cheapo home gym hardware with a TV tacked on, with an insane sticker price and equally overpriced subscription to a specialized Youtube channel. It doesn’t surprise me one bit that their treadmill chews through children.


Anyone know of a good installer near Tulsa?

Ooooo, exciting, a new implant…do you need a scalpel guy or a needle guy?

@PeachSqueezer may know of somebody in that neck of the woods but we haven’t seen him for a month…

Not for me :grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes: I’ll be waiting on the NT2 personally. But a friend down there asked. I’d imagine needle or flex needle since it would be their first

He’s within driving distance of Dallas Texas. That’s where Pineapple is located. O.K., so it’s 7.5 hours drive time :unamused:, but still doable.

Finally pulled the trigger on the xg3v2 replacement for my v1 in my forearm

Long term I wonder if I could do 2x xg3v2 semi close

First would be close to elbow of forearm,
Thinking second would be 2-3” closer to wrist
Both parallel to arm bones, and In line with each other

So probably the best orientation for the least attraction to each other

I want 2x because I find myself attaching my Bluetooth earbuds to my arm… but the v1 just isn’t secure… if the v2 holds it better I’ll need a second to hold the other ear bud

Alternatively I could do a v2 mirror image on my other forearm… but I kinda like the idea of both together

Hey, I just wanted to offer a bit of advice from my experience. I have a xG3 V1 in my middle finger and another one loose outside my body. If they are place like this “I I” parallel to each other, they have the best chance of interacting. With that orientation they interact at about an inch apart.

In my opinion if you place the V2 like this “_ _”, like you are planning, they would be even less likely to interact. I think 2 inches apart would be more than enough distance, but I’m not an expert. I’d definitely get a few other opinions first.

Definitely agreed. It should be fine in series lengthwise since they’re diametric.

Ahh, that makes sense, (unless you had moved) my USA Georgraphy is not great, but I remember you being in Tenesse…
my voice for you has a Southern drawl/twang

“Well How Dee Y’ALL”

I am probably wrong, but that’s how you sound to me in my head anyway…
That all accompanies, my visual of you…
with some chicken wings in one hand and a bottle of Jack to wash them down in the other, a 1911 in your waist band and a coon gun in the rifle rack of your Ford F150, with a bloodhound on the tray, and of course, the wind blowing through your mullet and fluttering the Ol’ Stars and Stripes strapped to the roof.

Tell me I’m wrong

Oh yeah!

I dare ya to flag me. In fact, I triple dog, with my fingers and eyes crossed, dare ya!!!

(So yeah, it’s totally cool.)

You could try to flag yourself - see if you can get yourself banned from the forum :slight_smile:
More seriously, I did and it works. Not the banning, the self-flagging.

You have been flagged as off topic on the anti-derailment thread :joy:

Thank you, badge achieved.

I flagged myself for being off topic as well to hopefully become even with the universe.
