Games, GTA, PS4
Spend the entire day with the nephews, aged 11 and 8. Despite hearing "can we play GTA 5 on your PS4" about 23 times, I still managed to keep them busy without the use of video games.

random87: @captainMy patented & proven daycare program includes:-Riding around on skateboards.-Picking dandelions- which according to an 8 year old work as fuel for skateboards.-Rides around town on the back of my moped.(The smaller one was to small to actually ride on the back of my moped, so for safety reasons I ended up just pushing the thing with the engine of, and him steering and honking- which is fun but also extremely tiring)-Spray painting Smint tins bright green/yellow/orange.
captain: They are lucky to have you! Imagination breeds awesome.
There's nothing more annoying than having a bunch of bright coloured spray-paint cans and nothing to try them out on

captain: do you find that the phone case doesn't rub off? Is it safe (is there such a thing?) I thought you'd go for your planters, table legs, that kind of thing. :)
random87: @captain Unless you spray thick/to many layers without letting it dry properly the paint shouldn't rub off. (Not in the way that it's leaving yellow marks in my pockets or on my hands anyways)The case has soft plastic bumpers/sides though, and the paint doesn't really stick to it, even after sanding and spraying some primer.It still doesn't rub off though, the paint just sort of chips off in small flakes.The plexiglass back seems fine though.

captain: @random87: I'm the kind of person who has trouble keeping cacti alive :D :D But it's fun to see your adventures!

PlantReview, Orchids, Cacti That's all I have to say, about that - Youtube
PlantReview#2!

Helpingly: What I appreciate the most about succulents is their hardy nature. I'm from California and because of the drought, many people's yards started to go brown because of the strict water policy rules here. However, because my family invested in succulents, we were able to keep them beautiful and use very little water at the same time. Very low maintenance and hardy plant. That's all I have to say about that.

HawtNoodle: We have a tree in our frontyard covered in these leaves from top to bottom bark and all (not the leafs ofcourse).As a kid I was collecting acorns once and a disgusting huge green spider cricket thing jumped on my sleeve...it freaked me out SO badly and made me cry. Thanks for the memories haha.

FriedClams: Enjoy your books! I never read either of these. I decided to power through Moby Dick by Herman Melville. I heard it was very boring but it is very famous so I want to see why. While you are reading, enjoy a cup of your choice of tea!
YayPlants, Took
I've been taking pictures of my plants every now and then to see them grow, but even though I thought I took the pictures pretty consistently, It turns out my timing is pretty random, and the angles are all over the place :O
NanoCube, Aquaria
Anyone here have any experience with Aquaria? I have acquired a 30 Liter Nano Cube, buuuuuuuut (with the exeption of caring for a bunch of goldfish as a kid) I have zero experience or knowledge :O

captain: @random87: I'm just going to assume you and your boss actually work in some kind of aquatic-related business and that you're not actually spending company time talking about aquariums. And if it is the latter, please email me with details about exactly what line of work you're in so I can follow down your path please.
random87: @captain Well.. actually we do bookkeeping/accountancy and other finance stuff!It's just that my boss is pretty passionate about fish and living things in general.Near us there is a fairly large store we go to every now and then during lunch time.Last time we visited the store we were gone for about 2 hours :OBut otherwise the work is fairly dull, and that's exactly what makes the office-aquarium so great, you get to look at something other than a bunch of numbers.

random87: @redeyed From now on I'll just crown myself King-overlord-plantgod, minus the Bonsaicaretaker title.I'm not worthy D:Maybe I'm not even worthy of the King-overlord-plantgod title either, and I'll just be a plain-old "Guy who has a few plants"
Helpingly: Oh wow thats sad ;c. I've always really enjoyed Bonsai plants but never had the patients or knowledge to care for some.
