    I watch machining YouTube.... I always was an electronics major. But I love these mechanical works made by machinists.

    I tend to stay off line if something bothers me. I have a Jack Russell dog. Her antics are too funny to get worked up for too long. If things are getting a bit stressful, then it's out for a game of ball for 15 to 30 mins until she gets tired or thirsty. That can happen 3 to 6 times a day. Her antics with the ball are brilliant to watch. Then she will insist on sitting on my lap. These are simple things, I know. But they work.

    Though she has gone through about 20 balls, all sizes, in the last 3+ years. Extremely sharp teeth. About 2 good quality ones have survived in that time.

    A pet is a great stress reliever. And they don't judge you in any way.

    Love his channel, but I think I'm already subscribed to most major YouTube machinist.

    If you like to Tony, you'll probably like Uri Tuchman as well

    Is it until “she gets tired and thirsty” or you get tired and thirsty and end up in the local pub?:rolleyes::p

    A dog is always good to take your mind of stuff.:)

    It would be the pub, but they have been closed for the last 4 months in the current lockdown we have here. So for now it's her tiredness or thirst. Until they open again beer 🐕🍺🍻😂

    You would get stressed drinking it from a can. Have hardly had a sup since December. The social life around a pint with a few friends is another great stress reliever. 👍

    On a positive note, I enjoyed my first pint down the pub in a good few months this very afternoon. Had to book beforehand, and sit outdoors in the cold, but it was possibly the best pint I think I've ever had..... Either that, or I've missed the pub far too much 🍻🍻😁

    I wish I could tell you that the restrictions and rules involved made it a lesser experience than it used to be!
    I'd be lieing if I said that though 🤣🤣🤣

    I know, we had outdoor bar last year, we were sitting wrapped up tighter than an Eskimo in November, cold outside, cold pints inside me. Didn't care though, was worth it. 🥶🤣

    Like all things, you don't appreciate them until they are taken away.

    People "detailing" cars...

    We really don't deserve dogs, do we ;)

    What are this "pint" and "pub" you speak of, you must be an alien from another planet...

    I strayed to that side of YouTube once before, along with wrapping cars.

    When having a dark moment and listening to really morbid/dark/"depressing" lyrics music and some kind of wonder how I can like such depressing music.
    Why would such music make it worse when it could make you realize it could be much worse and thus making your own situation look better? 😉

    A few samples that feels more suitable in some moments than others.

    Morgul - All dead here
    James Blake - Retrograde
    Kovenant - Mannequin
    Gnarls Barley - Just a thought

    In the end... Nah. Maybe it's not that bad after all.

    So **** happy lovesongs and shit. That is not a good way to turn my mood around 😜 I want it dark... Darker than me.
