Check With Someone Who Knows

So Ralph has decided that he’s going to learn guitar.  That’s all well and good but there’s the problem of getting a good one to learn on.  He doesn’t know the first thing about buying musical instruments of any flavor.  He asked me but I probably know less about such things than Ralph does.

The only advice I could give him is to check with people that do know.  If for you don’t know anyone that knows about the thing you’re looking to buy then the next best thing is to search it up on the web and go to sites that sell and talk about the thing you’re buying and read lots of reviews.  Reviews that are written by people who have bought the item and are not connected in any way to those who make and sell it are the kind you want to see.

These are the reviews that are most likely to point out a flaw or bug and explain why they didn’t like this or that feature about it.

Lots of people are willing to write all positive or all negative in their reviews but you want to look for the ones that can see both the good and bad features and just lay out the facts without a bunch of emotionalism that is really out of place.

E-013- Corrupted Save

I hate it when a save file is corrupted.  Especially when the most recent backup save is also equally corrupted and not able to be used.  Thus in this episode I find myself going back several saves.  This means some things got un-done.

The lander.  it’s trash.  I mean yeah Bill lived through the landing but obviously the machine will never fly again let alone get him back to Kerbin.

This means a total re-design to hopefully come up with one that will get him home.

E-011- One Man Ship To Duna

Flying in a ship that was simply not intended to be used for this kind of mission, Bill is now heading for Duna.  I hope he packed a lunch or 400.

Holes In Rumors

The thing about rumormongers is that they pay very little, if any, attention to details that leave holes in their claims large enough to fly a starship through.

A excellent example is the many rumors that have claimed Bob was marrying this or that celebrity.  They completely ignore the fact that anyone who knows him can tell you without hesitation that he’s just not the marrying kind.  The only exception to this is if he had a shot at one of the female stars of “Babes of Star Trek Gone Wild”.  He’d marry any of them at the drop of a hat.  Any hat.

Yet in spite of this glaringly obvious hole in such stories the rumormongers continue to pump them out at a sometimes amazing rate.  Recently one of them claimed that they had “proof” Bob is getting married.  The “proof” in question is a series of unverified sightings of him allegedly shopping for wedding night lingerie in a number of brick & mortar and online shops.

Thing is, Bob is a rather direct personality.  His idea of the perfect lingerie is the lady in question wearing only the skin she was born in.  He says that “Anything else just gets in the way”.
