    Here's a "what the fuck" moment for you all...

    I hardly ever get on Instagram. I used to way back in the day, but I hardly use it anymore. On July 4th, I was completely obliterated with liquor and posted a wonderful drunk picture of myself on a pool float that somebody had taken of me. So I hop on Instagram today and see that Angela Ruch liked that picture. I never put any tags on that picture, nor does she follow me, nor do I follow her, nor have I ever liked or commented on any of her posts.

    To quote Natalie Decker's spotter, "I'm completely fucking lost right now." Screenshot_20190820-133531_Instagram.jpg Screenshot_20190820-133544_Instagram.jpg

    Just got the news that Spiderman is no longer part of the MCU because Sony decided to be a little bitch, so it's time for Disney to buy Sony now.

    For once I'm sort of in favor of Disney.

    Good way for Sony to get their ass boycotted. Smart move.

    I get stuff like this occasionally. Nelson Piquet Jr briefly followed me and Ed Jones liked a picture of my cat

    See, but that's at least that's racing related. This is just a drunk picture of me lol.

    It's definitely random and I think they want us to think that it was actually the driver that liked your post. Scott Dixon liked a picture of my Jeep and Greg Zipadelli started following me on IG but they must go through accounts that have racing related interests or something.

    crazyboy on the other hand that is totally awesome.

    Thanks y'all for the kind words. I was discharged with a motorized wheelchair and everything I wanted to do is very disability-friendly and I'm having a pretty easy time right now. Went to Camp Nou and a few museums, ate a lot of good food.

    Also Angela Ruch liking a drunk picture of you is hilarious.

    Does anyone think I should make the oranges and blues darker? The SRD crew render makes it look way too bright.

    Leave it as is for the game flat, then make a render flat that's darker.

    So as a Californian now in New England, I'm learning I have to deal with tornado warnings. Making me realize I have no idea how to deal with a tornado. Infernos and shaking ground I can work with. Large whirly storms, no clue.

    I've lived in the midwest most my life. You don't deal with them. You get in a shelter, basement, windowless room, or somewhere where shit won't break all over and hope to God you live. One barreled through a town 20 minutes north of me just yesterday morning, there's simply nothing you can do but hope when one hits. Most stations are very good about informing and keeping you updated on tornadoes, but I also live with one of the best weather stations in the country so I'm not sure how true that is.

    I feel like these are relevant...

    Also, since weather is a bit more... uh... active compared to where you were, I'd give your local National Weather Service Office a follow on whichever social media platforms you use. That's where your tornado/severe thunderstorm warnings will come from. Here's a map to help find your local office:
    [​IMG]

    Also, give The Storm Prediction Center (SPC) and National Hurricane Center (NHC) a follow as well. The SPC issues thunderstorm outlooks days in advance where thunderstorms, especially the severe variety, are most likely to occur, and they also handle the tornado/severe thunderstorm watches that'll be issued on days like today. And while you're in New England, and it's relatively rare (compared to areas to the south), that region can get full-fledged hurricanes from time to time, making the NHC a great follow too, especially since we're just about to enter the most active portion of the Atlantic hurricane season (Sept. 10 is the climatological peak).

    Hope this helps, and let me know if you have any other questions or want to learn more. :D

    That is very, VERY helpful, thanks a million! Yeah all of our extreme weather from where I'm from is either relatively slow-moving, drawn out, or unpredictable. Never had to deal with extreme weather of matter falling from the sky, so this is tremendously useful information to know.
