i just got my car hot on the inside to melt the ice on the windows until it got air pockets, and we would brake it off, then used the water in my windshield to help it out. used my we had to use the bottom part of the hammer to break ice off my doors so i could get my art supplies out of my car. on Thursday i had to yank, tug, and pull, using my whole body to get my door to open so i could go home. I'm sure it was funny as hell watching me do that, but they really should of canceled class. :/

it was like snowing dip'n dots Thursday morning and that night it was like hail stones were plowing against the windows. just chunks of ice for flakes. thankfully the roads were at least dry. i think they put salt on them.

but it was scary driving. especially with the trucks throwing THICK ice chunks 10 feet in the air and smashing to the road. thankfully it didnt hit my car because it was coming at us.

Well, you don’t usually water a tree at the top

Because water was freezing and they wanted to see what would happen if they let it flow from the top of a tree, I'm guessing.

Not a great answer, but similar activities are not unprecedented.

its a catch of luck that any of these were in focus. these are all cropped from the original photo, since my 50mm isnt a zoom.

So a long time ago I was thinking about redeeming some promotional rewards tokens to obtain a semi-high-end camera. Some offers changed in my favor, and I just ended up getting cash until now, when I have a bunch of points to jism off.

This is actually a different site, but I think the same camera...the Canon EOS REbel T1i.

Now, for just under 1/3 the points, I can get a Canon Powershot SD1400is.

I would sort of like to start taking pictures now and then, but don't even have a camera on my current phone, and didn't use the one I had on my last one, and know fuck-all about taking pictures.

So convince me I will enjoy the Rebel 3x as much as the Powershot over its respective lifetime.

rebel and powershots arent that much different, bcuz rebels are for amateur photographers, but you can put new lenses and flashes on it. as powershots are for people who just want a good camera to capture moments in their lives, nothing to grow from there.. my rebel as lasted a lot long than my powershot. with in the year I'm going to buy me a Mark 1D, bcuz I've graduated from amature photography shit. trying to get my studio together.

no to mention powershots are more convenient. you can just carry them in your pocket, rather than around you neck with it bumping around everything and getting dirty.

Looks nice there. Canada has always seemed nice to me. There are a bunch of places up there I would like to see, but don't picture there is a lot to do for single, <25y/o guys who don't know anyone.
