Generally we scrape the ice off with one of those scrapers unless you're lucky enough to have a garage, of course then you just have to hope the ice and snow isn't completely blocking the door to the point where you have to shovel.
It's more of a pain now that I live in the south since I fully expect the unnatural warmness all year round to NOT include icy windshields, but it still happens on occasion.
What do I usually do in the winter? Stuff like this, every chance I get.
The Adirondacks in New York State.
It's not like I actually live on a mountain... Just within a short drive of them.
This was their turf, back in the day. Now, though, the Mohawks tend to hang out on the St. Lawrence River.
Put warm water in a ziplock bag. Use the bag like an eraser to clear the ice.
If you get bored, build a snowowl ...
I highly recommend becoming an internet detective and solving the murders of innocent cats. ^_^
Fair enough... What about puppies? ^_^
Look at how productive you are without internet, you solved that case in 45 minutes!
I can't relate, but I hope you're doing ok with the power and internet now!
Yay, Ford! -_-
Huh? You mean the power's gone at work too?
That fucking sucks. :'(
This was just too funny to not still have up here.
I'm still wondering about the reference about Mizal sharing a log cabin with him.
Anyway, while I can't come anywhere close to living the rugged train hopping, horny trailer trash girl beating, dot head loli luring life style while only wearing a loin cloth in below freezing weather like IAP, I did once spend a winter without power for a week in Detroit after an ice storm back in the 90s.
It wasn't that bad in the scheme of things, though just annoying since I was missing Star Trek reruns and the tribble one was all set to come on that week.
My dad and I kept being reminded of the last scene in John Carpenter's The Thing where Kurt Russel and the Keith David are resting by the fire as it will eventually burn itself out, waiting for one of them to turn into The Thing. Basically we referenced the lines from the movie as the lighting would slowly dim. Lol.
Bad mizal's internet! Very bad! >.<
Where are the receipts?
Also I'm really good at sex and have a super big dingaling... I know because the nice prostitute told me. ^_^
Thank you. I'll be here all week. ^_^
I get it. When I'm bored, I sometimes purge all my hard-drives, throw all my credit cards and ids into a shredder, delete all traces of me from the web, cut my hair and get plastic surgery.
Your many sacrifices for this community are always appreciated, but you shouldn't have to dirty your hands with this crazed horny old man. What would the feline community think? You are a honorary representative, aren't you?
I doubt mizal was longing for anything.
God, this old man is so fucking gross.
Are you projecting the very thoughts of every woman after mere seconds of having to interact with you?
You shouldn't confuse what you want with reality. You're more of a pitiful figure that people point and laugh out now, than a person that could possibly inspire the feelings of making anyone 'touchy'.
However if it makes you feel any better, I have a face that's very loved. I think it's the universe's way of balancing things out when there's people that are quite obviously unloved like yourself.
Now who's projecting?
Unlike you, I'm here to keep mizal from getting too creeped out by you. There's a reason why your post was deleted, and someone has to be the blunt one around here when it comes to respected site members, turned complete weirdos.
I love taking that role, fortunately.
Not entirely sure about the "respected site members, turned complete weirdos", but you've at least got the last half of your role down pat. So kudos!
"N-no! You're the weirdo!"
Oh, IAP, is this your "no, u"?
You're disappointing me, but I suppose disappointing women isn't anything new in your playbook.
I'm guessing this is you realizing that you've never had a leg to stand on to begin with, right? You've only had stumps, sadly. Although I'm starting to think even that's starting to go.
I might be a weirdo, but it isn't a "oh shit! I'm embarrassed, I better delete all of my posts, and then lie when I'm caught and asked the reason why!" weirdo.
But, I digress. Maybe some day you'll find an internet lady that wants to hunker down with you in a shabby dinky cabin, and who am I to crush your hopes? Keep reaching for those stars, IAP. While I wouldn't say success is particularly high, it's always good to have hopes, no matter how old, desperate, and sad one might be.
Did you already forget "I love taking that role, fortunately." I was just commending you on how great a job you've done thus far.
I know you must have downed an entire bottle of viagra just for this exchange, so I'll help you out. I must stress that the help is for reading comprehension, and nothing more.
"and someone has to be the blunt one around here, when it comes to respected site members, turned complete weirdos.
My role is the blunt one. You're the weird creep who got his post deleted by an uncomfortable mizal. So that makes you the weirdo, that's also pretty embarrassing now.
You can keep: "n-no, u!" ing out of denial, but it's just getting sad to watch you at this point. Can you try for like something witty, or even insulting? Don't go out like this.
Odd, considering that you were very eager to meet Nehal in person.
That was just a running joke that got out of hand. She was going to beat up the women stalkers I had and I was going to take care of the old guy who was creeping her out. It's all a bit vague at the moment, but I have those conversations saved somewhere, too.
h-haha, it was just a joke, guys!
She fled the community never to be seen again over a little gag! Haha, lol. I-I have the conversations!
You just love burying yourself, huh?
Was the old guy you
Every vehicle I own has a purpose. I've only ever bought one for fun and decided right away that that wasn't for me, sold it, and put the money into shop equipment where it belonged. And, yeah, I have made great money--occasionally--but I boast about the rare occurrences to counter all the squat I usually get dealt from my poor customer base.
Not exactly sure about what lies you're referring to, but I am a writer. That's what we do. Lol
$90 in 9 minutes.... Well, at least the guy finished fast. ^_^
15 hours a day chopping wood? Pitiful! When I chop wood I just punch the tree down with my bare hands! Then I use the logs I just punched down to make my own cabin and I do it all in a single day. ^_^
(Have to do it in a day because if it's not finished by the time the sun sets then the zombies start coming.)
I don't know what rock you've been living under, but the zombies are out in force 24/7. The ones around here have way too many toes and not near enough teeth...something, something...all have the same DNA.
I'm working on Ariel's underwater palace. ^_^
I bet you think you're so funny with your jokes and smiley faces! >:(
Well, someone has to be, I suppose. It's a good thing that it's you. An obviously well-adjusted and functioning member of society, no doubt.
... What just happened? :/
Well I missed out on most of this. The fuck did poor little Cricket do? :(
... Very confused, but still amused. Please continue. ^_^
All this needs now is another incredible/marvelous MHD drawing to cap this all off. However from my understanding, she's a bit tired after already doing such things selflessly as is.
I'll do it! ^_^
Excellent work. I bow to the craftsmanship, you true artisan.
OK now I'm leaving. . .
... Are you still in the McDonalds parking lot?
Well at least he has internet ^_^
We're sorry :(
So much good has come from this now, I must say.
Edit: Replying to MHD's art piece, and not mizal suffering through laundry.
Women! Go and figure 'em!
"Why'd we even give 'em rights!? We should just be able to walk the streets, and grab 'em as we see 'em!" -TheNewIAP
Mizal, we're both aware that this was an epic loss for him.
He started from attempting at being witty, to flailing his arms around. He even took the time to insult your attention span, before scurrying off, leaving behind a trail of toilet paper in his exit.
Proving once again, how much of a man's man he is. Which isn't actually much of a man, but a sad crusty hornball who was denied his chance of a plane ticket to get himself an Indian bride.
Why does he still even log on to further desecrate whatever image he used to hold? A secret that many are unable to decipher.
All anyone knows is this:
IAP is barely holding together his great seethe, and failing at it. :)
We've seen it happen with Ace too. I'm not sure on the causes but some people just don't seem to be able to stay away. Though I guess it's bad news for IAP that he shares something with Ace.
Well, it probably wouldn't have went anywhere if I didn't reply and stoke the flames. :) But End did save his post, and being the amazing daughter I am, I replied with good intentions.
IAP once again being IAP, however was a sweet bonus and net positive towards both the amusing and entertaining.
Oh, but you replied as well, which was its own thing. I guess I can't take all the credit after all. Dammit >:(
This thread is way better than it was before.
I don't even know what's going on in the rest of this thread, but I have to say I just really did not like "lol, a natural disaster is unfolding and millions of people are effected, mostly the poor and the elderly, LOL WHAT MORONS, I'm enjoying their suffering!"
I'm seeing way too much of this in other places and it's just so ugly and flat out evil, sometimes I really wonder how many more disasters the world needs to face and how beat down everyone needs to get before people finally start to realize we're all in this together.
Also no one chops wood by carrying entire trees around, wtf.
Does anybody else have that friend who goes out in the snow in an off the shoulder top and jeans with holes in them while your bundled up in as many layers as you can?
Not a friend, but back in the college days, there was some older dude who would walk around campus in a T-shirt and summer shorts while the weather would be doing stuff like sleeting, snowing or just being below zero. (No it wasn't IAP either)
He usually was just jogging a lot. Wore sunglasses too like it was a hot bright summer day.
I remember some guy shouted to him from the window of his car. "It's hotter than a motherfucker out here ain't it?"
Lol. My friend would probably do something like that.
But do you roll around in the snow like that? because she does...
He's really fat and is basically a rotten pig foot hence why the cold doesn't affect him.
If anything it covers the smell (Somewhat)
So I was complaining about the snow to my (what do you call it when you both have feelings for each other but don't want to do long-distance?) partner in crime who lives in Minnesota and they sent me this:
That Mother Nature, always trolling.
I read that as "Incendio" and figured that it had gotten so snowy that Harry Potter needed to use the fire incantation to melt the snow. ^_^
They think that this winter is going to lead to a very bad tornado season in the spring, like the one in 2011. I think I was too little then to realize how terrifying that actually was, but NC is a bad state for them.
Definitely not Fun snow day challenge: Try to wrangle your squirming and impatient toddler into the layers she needs to go outside and play in the snow...
Take a drink every time the subject of IAP's post is just directly quoting the post he's responding to.
I'm assuming apple juice works as the drink...
Randomly found this on imgur:
... Yeah, Mizal! Stop whining about the power outages you pussy ass bitch! :p
Making your constituents freeze to death to own the libs
