Who I am

Greetings, I am vexen. I do lots of star gazing. If you haven't guessed, astronomy is one of my main interests. I've recently been looking into buying, or modifying a camera, so I can take long exposure pictures of the planets. There is already an increasing hole in my wallet, seeing as I'll need to buy some more equipment for mounting the camera on my LX-90 Meade (203.2 MM objective lense). The telescope itself was 750 U.S. Dollars, 485 pounds, or 681 euros. It was used and came with a wide selection of eye pieces and a built in computer. Another concern I need to address is light pollution. I don't live in an extremely populated area, BUT the light from the surrounding areas do obstruct a good portion of the sky. I could buy a filter to significantly reduce the light glow. Alternatively, there is an ecological reserve about 10-20 minutes away from my house where I could get a better look at the stars. The downside is, there is a ton of wildlife that would want to make me their meal and on top of that, I don't want to lug around a 15 pound telescope every weekend, take it out of my car, set it up with all the proper photography equipment, set up the computer system, and then take some pictures. Then load all the shit back in, take it home, and spend the rest of my weekend alone, sharing my pictures with friends and family who clearly don't give a shit about my interests and what I do for fun. What has my life become?

You should make a thread in Welcomes and Birthdays - that's our preferred method of trolling unsuspecting victims.

Oh. I wasn't aware there was a designated area for that. Thank you for informing me. I'm still learning my way around.

It's not okay to hate bald people if they're bald not by choice.

You can hate fat people. Like OANST.

Fuck sake I've gained like, an inch on my wasteline since I started dating my girlfriend. She just makes food spontaneously appear out of nowhere, not to mention her cooking is a solid 10/10.

The benefits of a having a girl raised with Muslim values, the cooking is on point.

STM is dating ISIS. I knew it.

Someone had to say something racist, at some point. I got tired of waiting.

If that helps you, OANST, I'd make fun of you even if you were really fat.

Which is, exactly the situation here, don't get me wrong, fatty.

OANST was pitching more than enough in his pictures.

Is my meaning too obscure there? I can't tell.
