Had a friend drop off two minty 19" 4:3 LCDs that "were just laying around collecting dust".  One went into the Galaga, another is going into my SW Cabaret until I can get a CRT monitor in there.  Free screen chuffiness!

I bought back the cab that was once ShoRyuKade ( http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,120488.msg1278327.html )

Its kinda beat the ---fudgesicle--- up, and all the art and everything is gone, but I didnt want the cab to go to the dump. Don't expect a project thread any time soon, I'm balls deep in Killer Instinct cab.

Seriously. Those things were so annoying. Put in a bit of effort and put up some real lights.

Good repurpose for sure.

I couldn't take the occasional blinding light from that thing, so I put black duck tape on the bottom half of the lens that faces outward.  I also cut the end off the plastic yard spike, drilled a hole into a 2x4 scrap, and have it up on a little platform now.  Major improvement.

Late Christmas present... Father buys me some extravagant tool every year.

Took it to my restaurateur great grandfather's meat cleaver.  (I had previously embalmed it in black paint to prevent rust... It's been used as a workshop tool for 50+ years). This thing might be ready for butchering sheep duty again.

True story:  A couple of years ago we were seriously considering having our youngest try some of that 8-Bit to scare him off alcohol.  Might be the worst tasting beer I've ever attempted to drink.   :lol

Yeah, and it wasn't cheap, either.    :timebomb:

Still think the worst was Blue Moon Oatmeal Cappuccino Stout.  Turned out my friend had hauled it to two parties before he brought the rest to mine.  First time I gagged on a beer since I was like 9 years old.  Taking a swig of what I thought was regular Blue Moon and getting.... That.  Yikes.

I could retire in about 7 more years at the earliest, but I've come to realize I don't want to do this for 7 more years. I'd also have to spend $8k out of pocket to move over on the salary scale, but I'd rather put that towards my daughter's own college tuition.

It bothers me that educators aren't paid more.  It's one of the most important jobs so teachers should really get paid accordingly.  Maybe then the nation wouldn't be so darn stupid.

Too poor for the Super Bowl though I spent hours contemplating it when the tickets hit $1,900 a week ago.  Would have been a helluva game to see in person. 

Teachers pull about $50k here for 9 months, and Texas is allegedly one of those bad states that hates everyone.  Many school teachers in my family and they did fine and have had a comfortable retirement.

Ok, look at it this way.  A lot of schooling is involved in becoming a teacher, depending upon what level you teach for of course.  Typically people with degrees bring in 60k or more easy.  In most States teachers get the same amount as a blue collar worker... they do extra work without any financial incentive to do so.  So what incentive do the brightest and best minds have to become a teacher?

Because of this good teachers are the exception, not the norm, especially in super poor areas.

It's not about teachers being in the poor house, it's their pay not rivaling doctors and the like, which it should because forming young minds is just as important as saving lives.  I mean I do my part, any prop. that comes up for vote I always vote to give them more pay, but apparently WV is a red state now, so my vote never counts.

Been searching for ages and most of them seem to fetch crazy money (most dealers want 100+!)

But I managed to snipe this one on the bay of E for 30 :)

Grading some submitted assignments. This is why you carefully spell check and grammar check as well as give a complete read through to your work before you turn it in, kids.

Grading is a funny thing, when I was in college we got the riot act about plagiarism.. and in hind sight, they didn't have the tools back then to actually catch it.  Now they do, and every semester my wife agonizes over what to do when a student inevitably gets flagged.  Generally that problem sorts itself out because if a student is deliberately plagiarizing they tend to be about to flunk out anyway.
