Hey, store credit is pretty nice! You could easily get yourself a current-gen console with that sort of munies.

So, there's a couple of perk days coming up at my job. We get to turn stuff in for increased value, and then next paycheck we get a bigger than normal discount. I tallied up some of my (and my brother's) retro stuff, and if I did the calculations correctly, I will be walking away with over $1,200 in store credit after both bonuses.

Fucking wat.

One of the games alone has a base trade value of $44, boosted to $99 after both boosts.

Do you owe your soul to the company store?

You can't buy PCs at a Gamestop, bro. It's all consoles and console games, handhelds and handheld games, and maybe a few PC games.

Also some collectible merch if you're into that sort of thing. Point is, you can't use store credit to buy things that the store don't sell.

Get a call from the doctor's office yesterday, or rather, my mother got a call from the doctor's office yesterday because they decided to call her and not me. It seems that the blood work I had done last Sunday finally got finished, and they want to tell me the results. They refused to tell my mother the details(despite her forcing me to give disclosure permission), but my mother seems very insistent that the doctor wanted to discus the results with me.

While I have no knowable reason to worry, since the only reason I got it done is because my mother is also very "concerned" that I'm diabetic - unlikely since I've shown no symptoms of diabetes my entire life other than my mother's recent batshit claims of "slightly darker urine". So, while I shouldn't worry, I still can't help but wonder, what the hell did they find in my blood?

Unfortunately, the doctor appears to have left early, so I can only find out tomorrow at the earliest.

And that is why gamestop is doomed to die when consoles do.  The only reason I went to gamestop in the last year was to get free pokeymans.  I think I bought a Charizard amiibo once when I did just out of pure pity for the poor folks working there.

Last I was in there though you could buy steam cards.  I'd just buy $1000 worth of those.  Steam may fail someday too, but I'm thinking it's more likely to turn into gaming microsoft first and live for a century.  I figure consoles have another decade.  Maybe two.

Best case scenario, you've got undiscovered superpowers.

Vitamin D deficiency, maybe? It's pretty common if you don't live in a sunny state, particularly as winter comes around.

I hadn't considered that. I don't get outside much during the week. I'll have to check if the yogurt I eat with lunch is fortified with Vitamin D.

No. Glass blocks ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation, the type that stimulates vitamin D synthesis by the skin.

... However, you can get sunburned through a window. That’s because windows don’t block UVA, the other harmful type of radiation from sunlight, unless the glass is specially coated or tinted. Like UVB, UVA can cause sunburn and skin aging as well as an increased risk of skin cancer and possibly cataracts and macular degeneration.
