Star Wars

I was able to show up at Chunkie’s in Nashua.  At 910 and slide in and see a 915 movie.  There was probably 1 whole empty table.  Chunkie’s does not do preticket sales.

Food was I am a fan of the love me tenders with about 3 things of honey mustard.  It is chicken tenders and they allow to grab sweet potato fries instead of regular fries.

the movie was definitely more Disney than lucas side.  They brought in things from other Star Wars stuff that I have seen which was nice.  It was not a rehashed empire strikes back, there were enough differences to make me happy.  One of the worst Star Wars was 7, that just stunk of a new hope.

But if you enjoy the side of Mark Hammil that does comic cons, you will absolutely love this verson of luke skywalker.

D3 thoughts on the 2.61 patch

Before the 2.61 patch I felt the Necromancer being the only pay for class was above and beyond the most powerful class.   The Necro could be useful in endgame, and for a little while was extremly broken with the Demon Hunter marked for death.

The 2.61 patch was done in a way I am extremely happy with as a video gamer.  Instead of taking the nerf hammer to the Necro, they decided to improve all other classes.

They made the witch doctor pet build alot stronger, the hammerdin alot stronger, they made the IK set doable, they made some existing sets I already liked stronger, in the marauders, unhallowed,  and the shadow set does more damage.

Finally there might be more than 1 wizard build worth playing.

D3 did a patch right, the only thing it really changes is players will be able to do higher greater rifts and get better drops.

A patch done right in my opinion.

The Pats

I am considering becoming a football blogger next season maybe working on a football related project related right now.  I got abducted to crunch stats.

Crunching stats isnt a hard thing to do.  They are given to you.   Some sites keep track of more stats than you will ever need.

I root for the Pats every game regardless of my fantasy team.

I will play my fantasy players against the Pats,  I had Matty Ice on one of my fantasy teams, I am currently 5-2 in one league and 4-3 in another so I am not exactly killing it.  One league I doubled down on Deshawn Watson, I traded for Hopkins.  I traded away Gordon and Hilton for Hopkins and Hill, I thought about trading Gordon for Hopkins straight up, the person I was trading with let me name 2 of his wide outs.  I just dont like Hilton with Brisett.  Brisett might be a very good NFL QB in the future the game is much faster for him now than someone like Andrew Luck.  Brisett probably takes an extra 1 or 2 seconds compared to Luck to go through his reads.  In which case he gets sacked more.

But my original thought is Stephen Gillmore.  I don’t think hes the Pats type of player.  I think there is one type of corner role he really excels in, but I dont think he can do all the types of coverage Bellichek expects of him.

Gillmore also did something I didnt think Pats players did,  He had 1 ugly news conference were he said everyone did not plat well, instead of doing the Pats thing and said well I could have did this or that better.

I know as a fan the Pats were allowing like 30 points a game with him, and they are allowing 16 points a game without him.  If it wasnt for garbage time yards I would have won a bet with my friend that Julio Jones would get less than 10 fantasy points v the Pats, but Bill did yardage for time and Ryan did Jones vision and I lost.

But I would really like to see his attitude improve about the team, or ship his ass out of here.  Maybe he just needs a few practice weeks, but they are better without Stephen Gillmore.

Football 2017

This football season, I was planning to highlight my point system for betting on games and trying to call – high lows.

I got picked up this football season however.

my love for casual crunching stats, and football has lead me to a side venture.

A friend of mine is a computer science engineer.  He will be writing the code for me and another guy who are crunching numbers.

I will be creating a game simulator to call football games, this should be mainly used for fantasy projections if accurate.

So as far as this football season goes, I have the goal of collecting as many odd stats as possible.

Don’t you worry even if its a complete failure, I should be a qualified mid level NFL scout when completed.

But because I am on SSDI being a cancer survivor, if it is successful for tax purposes just like gambling it will onlyu be classified as a hobby.

Diablo 3

I hope this out burst makes it way back to Blizzard.

I do not claim to be God’s gift to Diablo 3.  I am not going to sit here and say I am the worst player.  I am not top end.  I do enjoy the game.

I find Deadset writes alot of playable guides, I agree with a good sum of them.  I might change 1 thing here or one thing there but for the most part if I like the class he writes very fun guides.

his guides are found on https://www.icy-veins.com/d3/wizard-firebird-archon-build-patch-2-6-season-11

Most classes at least have 1 set I like to play with from time to time, I would say my favorite class is Demon Hunter I like 3 of the 4 sets.  I like your Hammerdin, I like the WW Barb, I like the raidant or something Monk set, I like zumi Which Doctor Set, I like Tals for Wizard.

Necro original had 2 sets I liked in Rathma set and the Ina set.

Look I was able to get my skeleton Mages upto 10, before getting the circlet ring that extended, I can more easily keep out 10 skeleton mages but the math doesnt seem to be worth it.  That after all is the 6 piece bonus to the set 250% for the skeleton mages you can keep out.  It does absolute crap for damage now compared to all other necro sets.

Look released with the Necro was a series of Rings that say Necro only.  Some of those rings fucking rock.  Krisbin Sentence is probably the single strongest ring in the game right now, look I dont consider it that bad.  Look read the deadset guides youd be hard pressed to read a guide that does not speak of convention of the elements.

Some of the other Necro rings are strong, but that ring, turned my WW Barb into a damage dealer.

So if you could fix the ring thing, and put the Rathma set back to be useful it would be appreciated.

Unless you only want end game content to consist of Hammerdins, Archons, Shadow hunters, and 1 or 2 other choice damage dealers.

The Inarius set is nice for Necro,

And the single weakest class is probably by far the WW Barb, and Reckors charge barbs are pretty painful too though their damage is better, that it least allows a barb player to be marginal support.

Health Insurance

I have alot of preexisting conditions I would guess by the republican plan I have around 6-10.

I heard Trump care is coming with age based insurance prices.  Now they could base this off the US Military model and do every 6 years.  The military loves there PT, personal I wish cops and some other government jobs actual enforced basic fitness requirements.  The military breaks it down so 18-24, 25-30, 31-36 and so on have different standards in PT the bar gradually gets lower.

I would guess if i wanted a policy to cover anything it would probably cost me around $100-200 a week if Trump care passes.  As it is now, I am happily on medicare.  Some insurance companies in Mass dont cover preexisting conditions until after 1 year, and some dont cover chemo at all.  Being someone living with a stage 4 cancer diagnoses  I expect to be in and out chemotherapy every few years and its fucking expenses.  You say this 1 special drug cures or treats your cancer well its going to cost you.

I would guess my medical bills last time through chemo was close to $200,000.  I had some complications through chemo, I had a weekend hospital stay at Tufts, my targeted chemotherapy drug knocked out the cancer in 3 months it was considered in recession.   After that I still got chemo, it started attacking my acid reflux.  That lead to a weekend stay at Tufts.  I meet the chief surgeon right off the ambulance, and had 5 doctors by my bedside trying to figure out what the fuck.  My guess is each doctor was responsible for a different group of tests.  For a few months after that I think I was on 80 mg of prilosec, I got so much it did funny things to me, it was lowered to 40 mg.  But the way medicare is now I didnt pay a penny.

Yeah, im a poor person, figuring out ways to pay for private insurance is not something I dont think I will be able to do if Trumpcare passes.  So I think I would be better off keep collecting than play with that mess.

But dont you worry.  The Great Don, preaches health insurance is a luxury in this country.  If you make more than $42,000, your medicare will be cancelled immediately.  Their is an income line for medicare under Obamacare but it is more than $42,000.  I dont know how many people will lose their insurance for that alone.

So you still think Obamacare is evil?
