Fresh Fruit for Rotting Vegetables, 04.15.20

It’s 82° F and clear in Bakersfield today. The sort of day that, TBH, we don’t see all that much. Late spring through early fall is, usually, oppressively hot, and late fall through early spring tends to be right above freezing. So days like today are a treat.

PowerWash Simulator

One of my favorite things to do after a stressful day is throw on a pressure washing video and just sort of zone out.

Okay, so now that you know that, you’d better believe that I was thrilled af to discover this game — which just dropped as an early beta. I was less thrilled to see that it’s (currently) Windows only, but I’m hopeful that it’ll be easy to port elsewhere because Unity.


I don’t know about you, but I’m good with calling it a day at four links. 🤷🏻‍♂️

Guess I should go grab a tallboy out of the fridge and pull up a lounge chair before the sun up and calls it a day.
