There was likely a sale on moleskine notebooks and quills at the local market. Legend says he's still scribbling book four of his saga.

i just read on quorra or something and it says drinking a bottle of whiskey in an hour can kill you. you think that’s nonsense or possible? how tough is it to drink it?

Depends on:

 

a) The size of the bottle

b) The strength of the whiskey

c) The composure of the individual.

 

Back in my student days I did a 70cl bottle of vodka in ~1 hour a few times.

In hindsight, I wouldn't recommend it. It's like smashing 8 pints of beer in an hour, except the vomit that almost always ensues is much less pleasant.

There's a spot in your life where you've been drinking long enough to tolerate massive amounts in a short amount of time, but you're young enough where you can bounce back with relative ease. It's obviously not good for you in any scenario, but the effects are easier to shrug off both in the long term and the short term. Ten years ago I drank so much whiskey that I contracted alcohol poisoning and my poo turned green for about three days. If I drank as much as I did that night now I'd probably injure my insides even more than I already have.

 

Alcohol awareness is great, but you've been posting a lot about it and asking some questions that lead me to believe you're a little too keen. Far be it from me to be the beer police, but don't push your body and brain to such extremes by pickling yourself. I understand the allure, especially when you're in an environment where it's more difficult to obtain or at an age where everything is a good idea, but don't put yourself through it just to see what happens. Experimenting is part and parcel of your formative years but be careful.

thanks for the advice, that means a lot(seriously, not joking :)).

 

no need to push it anyway, i was just curious. it’s actually pretty good to hear what people experienced in their lives, for example i wouldn’t know alcohol is that dengerous if i didn’t read from others.

 

edit: i also read some people say it’s not a good idea to mix drinks, do you know the reason for them to think that way?

How is this hat of Michael Caine called (Jack The Ripper, 1988)? This is not a exactly a Bowler and it's not a classic Fedora nor a Trilby.

I like this brim type, round at the sides, more flat at the top/back. And it has a fold on top which a normal Bowler doesn't have. I like to use

a Fedora but this looks so Mafia like, but the Bowler is too round for me. This one looks cool in the picture, with parts of both. I don't like

this hanging brim of the grey hat on the right.

It's the vomiting.  You'll learn.  Everyone does.

@NaidRaida

It seems like a combination of a trilby and what's known as a pork pie hat. These hats are usually flatter on the top, and have that lip that you're interested in. Unfortunately, I'm not an expert in hats so I can't be certain that's what he's wearing, and obviously as time goes on the trends change. If you happen to image search "pork pie hat" you'll find similar shapes but their designs have been tweaked to bring them to a more contemporary wardrobe. I don't think the casual wearer would be able to tell you the subtle differences between a trilby, fedora, a pork pie, or anything in between because sometimes the elements are borrowed to create something stylish and versatile.

Hangovers are worse than if you just stick to one type of alcohol.

Thank you for your response. You're right, I know the Pork Pie and I believe I have already one of these. With diamond shaped crown and you can fold the brim downwards at the front but then it look like a Fedora with a small brim.

This hat in my picture has a unique brim, like rolled up at the sides but the front and back is more flat. This is annoying to me with the usual Pork Pie. If the brim is folded upwards all around it look a bit stupid. I have a professional

hat store here and have taken a look but I found nothing compareable. I'll show the vendor the pic. My search will go on! People are used to say I have a "hat face" but what they mean, I don't know. Anyway, I love hats in all fashions.

And not only because of fashion, they are very useful too. Especially when it's raining. I constantly refuse to wear a cap to a suit. That doesn't fit together I think.

I think it might be a felt Homburg, also know, as an Anthony Eden hat.

Pic search for Anthony Eden hat or Homburg comes pretty close to what I'm looking for. Sides up, front/back flat, folded crown. That's a good point to start a careful search. Most likely I'll have to order online anyway. Thank you! Awesome!:inlove:

I would call this a suit-fitting-cowboy-hat. I've seen cowboy hats with similar brim shapes often I think. But then they have feathers or something which I absolutely don't like. I'm not bavarian, haha.

 

P.S.: I've only ordered one thing in my life online. Guess what, it was a hat!

The Homberg is actually, contrary to popular belief, what Winston Churchill wore rather than a Bowler.

I've choosen this one: https://www.baileyhats.com/hollywood/godfather.html

I was moaning about the Fedora beeing too Mafia like and now ordering a hat named "Godfather". :p

 

Look here, sivispacem, this explains most of it: https://www.gentlemansgazette.com/homburg-hat-history-style/

Correction- you're only an intentional sh*tposter in The Pit. You do it accidently elsewhere.

Not asking questions that could be answered better by Google would go a decent way.

 

Also, take heed of Rhoda's post from the last page.

Damn, just bought a ps4 pro and it would not start.  Gave me the beep when pressing the power button but no sign of it staying powered up or outputting a video signal.  Returned it and got another and the same problem happened again.  The security seal was broken on the 2nd console box.

 

My question is.  Is this a common fault with PS4 Pro or did I mess up the simple setup?  I did test both consoles on different monitors with the same result.

^ That is not normal if you purchased it legally. And it's not a setup problem. The console must have any video output before the setup even starts. A broken security seal is very suspicious. Where did you bought it?

The only thing I can imagine is a new console variant with new CUH number, and if it has a massive software update it might be faulty but I cannot imagine Sony is going to deliver such console during christmas time.

What you're telling sounds very strange. I would also check the socket you plugged it in. Maybe you have an undervoltage or something. It's most unlikely that you purchased two broken consoles in a row. How could they have

passed QM?

I got them from Argos.  Thankfully.  Was able to replace and refund within 1 hour. Purchased a Xbox One X and that fired up straight away using the same socket and HDMI cable.

Hope they send them back to Sony instead of repackaging/selling them on.  If they do resell someone will have a sh*t Christmas morning trying to get it to work.

Maybe the vendor purchased a whole batch with malfunctions. Therefore, in this case, I would buy the console elsewhere. Two buy two faulty consoles in two different shops is close to impossible I'd say. Your case is strange enough.

Hi guys.

 

Surely some of you here have bought and played Hitman 2 (2018) PC game. I've checked it out today on Steam and it's 75% off. It's a big opportunity for me to get it. However, there are different ''editions'' available to buy such as ''Gold'', ''Standard'' etc. I researched what each of the editions includes and if I'm not mistaken, in order to get the full Hitman 2 game with all its features (such as weapons, online contracts, sniper missions etc.) + all the levels/missions of Hitman 1 (2016), I need to buy the Gold edition, right? 

 

My question is, if I buy the ''Gold'' edition, do I still have to buy expansion stuff each time the developers release a new update or a new level/mission or do I get the free game updates forever from that point on just like GTA V?
