Goddamn, Sky just triggered some memories of a property I had in days of yore. Neighbors on two sides where the nicest folks you could imagine, but the guy on the third was a complete asshole. The funny thing was that they were all related (I had purchased their deceased Paw Paw's house), and when I mentioned to one of the nice ones that I was planning to put up a fence they *all* put in an appearance to tell me that cousin Billy was a total asshole, and to make sure I had *everything* legally squared away, because he *was* going to give me shit and there was nothing they could do about it.

So I did. Paid the money for an extra survey, got it in writing from the county commissioner how close I could put it to the line (right on it, but recommended eight inches back although you are assumed to have an automatic easement to care for the other side of your fence). And yes, he gave me shit and I shut him right the hell down.

He didn't talk to me for years either.  awesome, for real

Get ps vue, dude.

Had that for the world cup. Was nice... but we don't watch enough of the channels to keep the sub to it. If we didn't have the packaged basic tv with Verizon to get a low cost on the Fios and just got a cheap fiber option, I'd probably keep Vue.

My neighbors are pretty lax about pulling up seedlings, so I had a full-blown oak growing next to my chain link fence. Since my house pre-dates the city limits, I'm close on that side, with a slab. Oak roots in proximity to slab are not ideal, and an oak between two houses would be a bear to remove later. So I had my lawn guy take the tree, which was about 3" in diameter at the time. I ran it by them, and they agreed in advance. I offered to replace it with ornamentals that wouldn't grow as large as an oak.

Welp, then they lost their shit and pulled badges on my lawn guy (neighbors are retired troopers). So he quit. I went to my lawyer to get ahead of it, and he had just gone through a similar thing trying to do the right thing with trees growing into his fence and had a hell of a time. Basically (and IANAL), fence lines are grey territory, even if you know the survey line.

You can for sure take back anything to your survey line, but in reality that's a shitty way to prune that puts the health of the tree in question (bid dead branch vs a nice clean prune at the trunk).

Neighbors are finally talking to me again, after 5 years of silence and anger. It will be fun when I revisit the situation, I've already cut it back from my side once because they're letting the suckers all grow in. So it's technically a far worse situation now.

I dislike stupid people.

Or do both so you aren't deafened by his screams.

I used to work next to a guy who'd make the most annoying "ahem" noises to himself, CONSTANTLY.  I just started always wearing headphones.  Don't even need the fancy noise canceling kind if you turn up the music.

Sitting there and just stewing because someone in your general vicinity is making involuntary noises is the least productive thing possible.  Get noise cancelling headphones, or murder him in a way that can't be traced to you, or GTFO.

In the same vein as sequels ... first expansion announced!

https://www.paradoxplaza.com/battletech---flashpoint/BTBT01ESK0000001-MASTER.html?utm_source=stcom-owned&utm_medium=social-owned&utm_content=post&utm_campaign=flas_bt_20180821_pla_ann

Three new mechs: Crab, Hatchetman, and Cyclops
New map biome -- beach
new game mode - Flashpoints (procedurally generated mission chains)

In all honesty, sounds a bit anemic.  I guess it will come down to how engaging the Flashpoints are.  But I had so much fun with the base game that I'll probably shell out for the expansion just to support them.

You know, I realize you have to practice selective hearing when working in a cube farm, but the guy in the cube catty-corner from mine really needs a reminder that burping, belching, sniffling, and regular coughing is not cool.  It's the burping and belching that's the most annoying currently because it's every damn day.   swamp poop

I keep looking at streaming options (especially now that I looked at how much money I'm spending just on my TV service). What's always held me back was sports - I don't watch sports live, I DVR then to watch later the same day. I'd need a service with some decent DVR capabilities as well as major network feeds, lots of sports channels especially soccer and a good mix of cable channels. Fubo and Sling look like the best options but I'm not entirely sure if the DVR capabilities on them is worth a shit. Any testimonials?

I don't see the big deal. We've always been at war with those guys.

Don't let the neighbours find out. If they're assholes they might decide the cut off wood belongs to them.
