Re: Some kid tried to force himself in my home last night!!!

Maybe let him in and pretend to give him a hug, then pepper spray him. :P Since I didn't have any pepper spray last evening, I could hardly spray the brat now can I?

Kind of a fun fact: Lots of South East Asians don't absolutely need toilet paper. They use their left hand and then use fragrant soap to cover the smell. That's also why you won't see many of them eating with their left hand. Barbarians do as they do. That's racist, you know. There are civilized pe...

My i7-3770 is showing 4.41GHz max frequency at less than 20% utilization in task manager but in CPU-Z it alternates between 3.7 and 3.8 GHz. What's going on?
