I'm so sick of 'the worst' or 'x is bad' videos. Even from content creators I like. I want you to geek out on your passions, not shitting on things nobody even remembers.

Since the pandemic isn't going to end anytime soon, I finally decided to buy a desk for work. It's long overdue. My son is also walking around the house already and raiding my kb & m at every chance he get. So I have to evacuate to the other room. :notlikethisblob:
Post pics in the where we game thread!

Summer sucks and people who like it, like something that actively tries to kill them.
Sun is the only reason we or anything is alive, winter is what kills EVERYTHING! Just look at Game of Thrones.



You know Sean Bean is a signal of death.

Ok real talk, I think the reason I can't stand winter is because I became homeless during winter and I had never felt cold like when I had only stone floors to sleep on and couldn't get warm any way. Those shivers in your spine that you can escape easily usually, when those keep you from sleeping, well that is hell. Till to this I remember when I had those shakes nonstop that made me keep fainting so that I ended up in the ER. Apparently I was completely white. Good thing I was trying to sleep in the waiting area of the hospital to begin with haha!

Does anyone have recommendations for affordable yet decent looking watches?
Something simple yet good looking, none of that decadent shit

Aw man it really dpeends on what you consider "cheap" and decadent. Casio & Seiko both have quite a few series that are super affordable, high-quality timepieces in a range of vastly differing styles. Casio's G-Shocks are their own type of "simple yet gaudy" but there's a plethora of different styles on offer there too, though they're not super cheap although their benefit is insane durability. Seiko's Pulsar series has some brilliant watches that're super durable & often understated in their looks.

If you want unique & understated, I can highly recommend the micro-brand called "Divided By Zero"; their watches are subtle, unique & heckin' reasonably priced.

Bulova is also very much great quality & has watches in any given price range. :3

But yeah, G-Shocks, Pulsars & Divided By Zero has my personal stamp of approval.

(So does the one Bulova I own, but my experience with the brand is limited to second-hand anecdotes other than just one watch)

G-shocks are definitely too overstated for me, pulsars also. Divided by Zero's look very nice, but almost a bit too simplistic, given that those on google images all don't even have numbers anymore lmao.

I found those uwdood's earlier today and at least asthetically, they seem very much the kind i am into, are they considered good?

To be fair both Pulsar & G-Shock features a wide array of stylings. I was thinking specifically about the SKUs that're more undertoned, which I own a few of. (G-Shock Steel are nice thangs)

I don't at all recommend Uwood or any other brand making watches with wooden casings; they all split at the length of the grain at some point, more often than not it's within a year at most. (And if they have a smidgen o' a tough time it can be anywhere from the links to the middle of the dang casing)

I'll... Uh, I'll see if I can find some good shizzle but I do suppose it really depends on what sort of budget one sets too. :)

I'm partial to Diesel watches. I like their quasi-industrial design, though their models tend to be fairly big. I found a few of theirs that manage to look nice, without having gigantic cases.
I'm currently wearing this one:

(it's actually quite a bit darker than on this promo image, but I like it that way)

I don't know if they are cheap enough for you, I bought this one for just over 100€. Most of their watches seem to hover between 100 to 200.
