  2. It can’t happen naturally, but the vikings were pretty good at making it happen for you.

  3. Aside from being born with, I dunno, your internal organs outside of your rib cage (can that happen?), I agree.

  4. I was a 40-year-old graduate of a community college, and I didn’t allow photos (let alone actually go to the ceremony). But we went out for an amazing dinner the following weekend. Had a big ol’ 18 ounce ribeye and a baked potato the size of my head.

    I do have a photo of the diploma, and that’s all I ever cared about. 🙂

  5. I truly appreciate it. I don’t want to be viewed as taking traffic away from TR, but to my knowledge, nobody else went into that level of detail on the RTX performance in Control. It seems TR didn’t get early access to it anyway.

  6. True story–without knowing your site affiliation, I recently added HotHardware to my list of Chrome start-up tabs, so I expect my reading to get pretty Funky.

  7. I’m seriously allergic to pork and it is the worst possible thing that could happen.

  8. I think the beard, mustache and glasses are all fake. Also, we expect graduation pictures–you have been warned.

  9. Very cool to see frame time reporting on other sites, and that HotHardware writer is quite handsome.

  10. Did somebody say sous vide pork tenderloin???!!!???


    Bonus points for using the juice from the bag to make a creamy mushroom sauce. Ç’est Magnifique!
