Holy crap do I hate these things.

A little background.

I was using Windows computers in the mid 90's at the age of  11-12?

I was building my own computer by 2000's

I was fixing friends devices even when I did not own one myself.

I was repairing computers from. 2007-2013.

Still build my own towers today.

I'm posting this from a, what I thought was decent device, Moto G5 Plus.



Ok with that out of the way. SMARTPHONES SUCK.  Period. Not just the actual phone itself, but pretty much everything connected to it.

The software and it's endless updates. The updates themselves which seem to randomly change or remove things for what reason?? I dunno.....

The extremely quick obsolescence.

The zombies these devices create. The teens that run into me out in public. The soccer mom's who drive like idiots who sure enough, are looking down at their phone

The utter lack of functionality of each app compared to my desktop machine.

My 4th gen i5 machine I built from a pre-owned video server on Craigslist, flat out, out performs even my acquaintances flagship phones at pretty much everything. 

Not only that, but this absurd crap has spread over into watches which I also happen to be in the business of repairing as well.

If one more retard tries to impress me with an Apple watch I think I'm going to lose it. I don't care about your phone strapped to your wrist.  I don't care if it counts your steps or monitors your heart. I wouldn't care if it cured cancer. Which honestly, it'll probably turn out to CAUSE cancer.

You would look just as ridiculous to me if you strapped a full size phone to your wrist.

Carry on good people.

These are getting crazy!  And they're getting pretty good too.  Funny how he snuck in Ted Nugent, and why am I not surprised Ted wears his own shirt to a concert?  Doesn't that break the first rule of being in a band?

Exactly.  Especially if you can use it a lot.

There's so much desert driving and off roading out here that a stock 4x4 of anything is rare.  People are buying anything they can.  I've even seen two lifted Isuzu Vehicrosses in the last week.  It's getting desperate! ;)

...think "It's tall enough stock, I'm good"

Visit Jeep sites

Determine that was a lie and you aren't "good".

When was this?

1958 if I remember correctly.  Iowa and New Jersey went back to Norfolk after the picture, while Wisconsin and Missouri went to their separate destinations in Europe with midshipmen from Canoe University for their summer midshipmen's cruise.

Cool stuff. Wish I would've had a camera earlier on in my Navy Career and taken a bunch more pics!

All four of the Iowa class battleships together.  This is the only time this ever happened.
