Review: @Daymak Easy Rider Electric Bike

Several days ago I received my new bicycle, the Daymak Easy Rider which is a electric assist bike, meaning the motor will only kick in if you are peddling. As someone who loves cycling but suffer from bad knees, I have been unable to bike my usual 60km. The smallest of hills on the easiest gear would cause knee pain so when Daymak appeared on The Shopping Channel which allow buyers to pay monthly for product, I took it as a sign that it was time for a new bicycle.

The purchase did come with some freebies like a helmet and a mp3 player but since I don’t require either, I reached out to Daymak requesting if it was possible to substitute those free items for a saddle bag. A very nice lady named Monique said yes that would be no problem at all but unfortunately it did not arrive with the bike so I guess it is being mailed out.

When the bike arrived I only noticed one problem with the bike and that was a missing one bolt to hold one side of the saddle rack to the frame. I have informed Daymak and they are sending me a replacement bolt. In the meantime I went to my local Lowes and purchased the proper size bolt (M5 0.80 x 1/2″) because I had already scheduled a bike ride with a friend for yesterday. Due to crappy weather, we have not been out riding in about 2 weeks so I did not want to postpone this ride.

Some other initial issues was bolts not completely tighten. The curve handlebar could swivel up and down with just a little bit of force and the throttle came loose during the ride. Both were very easy to tighten though and once I adjust the height of the seat and handlebar, it was a great ride. I did have to remove the little back rest because I could not swing my leg over top of it and I could not lift my leg up high enough to get over the crossbar. My friend laughed his ass off at how I struggled to get on and off the bike when the backrest was attached. All good though since for the very first time, I biked lapse around him instead of the other way around.

The bike came in three colours, gray/red/pink, so I chose the red. Normally I tend to choose a dark colour for my bicycles but given this one has a battery and dark colours attract heat, I decided on the red.

The bike has around 5 assist levels while still giving you 6 gears. I have been looking at e-bikes for several months and this was the first I saw which actually comes with a derailleur. Other e-bikes only give you one gear so to have 6 was nice. I did however notice that the bike has trouble going from 6 – 5 and 3 -2 but going the other way, no problems. Not a big deal to me because I am use to bikes having trouble switching to certain gear levels. It can be the most difficult part on a bicycle to get absolutely perfect.

The motor does a great job at getting up hills and you can really feel the power when the motor kicks in.

Unlike a lot of e-bikes, the battery is removable and can be charged outside of the bike. I love this feature because I only have one friend who is also in to cycling but we don’t live close to each other so I keep my bike at his place and just take public transit to/from his house. With the removable battery, I can bring the battery home when it is time to charge it.

Overall, I am extremely happy with this bike and would definitely recommend this bike. Daymak also makes other transportation products which you can check out at www.daymak.com. I really want the Boomer Buggy so I can go do my grocery shopping without having to rely on others to take me.

Well, that is my review on the Daymak Easy Rider e-bike. I hope you enjoyed it.

Once Again @Blizzard_Ent and @mikemorhaime Prove They Don’t Care About Fans

This past weekend was Blizzcon 2018 and once again fans got to see how out of touch the company is with their own customer/player base.

I am a fan of Blizzard Entertainment and have been since someone bought me the StarCraft box set when it was released almost twenty years ago so I can say that Blizzard is no longer thinking about their clients first. It started when they became a public company and got even worst when Activision and Blizzard merged into Activision Blizzard.

So for those of you who do not yet know what happened, Blizzard decided to announce a brand new Diablo game that will take place between Diablo II and Diablo III BUT there is a catch. It is ONLY for mobile. That is right, the fans whom have been pretty much forgotten by Blizzard for the past 6 years and are all PC (Windows, Mac OS, Linux) gamers, finally get a new Diablo game but will not be playable on PC.

Announcing a mobile-only game at a convention consisting of only PC gamers is the dumbest move any company could make. This just shows how the people in charge are absolutely stupid.

Also, PC gamers know that mobile games are nothing more than a cash grab and what is even worse is this new game coming in 2019 is a 100% clone of another game created by the company Blizzard has hired to make the game. Blizzard says it was made from the ground up yet if you look at Diablo Immortal and compare it to this other game, it is clear that Immortal is nothing but a clone. Same attack effects, UI, etc…

To Blizzard, if you are reading this, get your shit together and get back to putting your fans first as you did over a decade ago. You have lost your way, especially after the merge with Activision.


So I was just about to publish the above when I saw a new video that appears to be some kind of news conference that took place at Blizzcon. Below are my thoughts on what was said.

 

In the video, you see two Blizzard employees, Wyatt Cheng who is head of the Diablo teams and Allen who is executive producer.

Allen states that the truth to why they are bringing Diablo to mobile is to target younger gamers whom they say are all mobile gamers. Stats, of course, say different with player retention for mobile games being no more than 5%. With that said though, they still chose to show a mobile-only game to an entire PC player base.

I understand a business would want to attract more gamers to their franchise so I don’t blame them for wanting to expand to mobile but you have to choose the best place to announce it. Blizzcon was the worst place to announce a mobile-only game for a franchise that has received very little love from Blizzard in the six and a half years the game has been out.

Another piece of information given is there will be even more of its franchises will be coming to mobile making it clear that Activision and their greedy micro transactions lifestyle is officially making its way into the Blizzard games.

The only way Blizzard can save face now to the Diablo fans is to announce that Immortal is going to come to PC.

FE Debate Review: @RedsRhetoric vs @NoConcepts

Sunday night on The Non-Sequitur Show there was suppose to be a debate between Reds Rhetoric and flat earth believer No Concepts. At 9pm, the time when the show was to start, we waited and waited. After some time had passed, we get word that No Concepts is a no show.  Not even considerate enough to send an email to the show to say he could not make it.

This of course seem strange because No Concepts paid $500 to Reds Rhetoric for this debate and it had to be done at a time convenient to No Concepts because he had to book time to use a super computer. No, you did not misread that, he actually stated he was going to prove our earth is flat using a super computer.

So, with No Concepts being a no show, a debate still happened but it ended up being against two flat earth believers, Travis and Scotty.

First lets start with Travis…He is nothing but a follower. Knows nothing and only spews out stuff that he heard watching videos from other flat earth believers.

Now lets talk about Scotty. This guy is a loose cannon and should be watched by the FBI equivalent in Australia or New Zealand, whichever country he is from because I can see this guy going on a shooting rampage if someone says one thing he does not agree with.

Every time Reds would proceed to answer Scotty, Scotty would instantly burst in to this rage with yelling and constant interruption so no one could talk.

Scotty did not know the true meaning of the words he tried to use to defend a flat earth. This of course is not unusual since it appears every person who believes the earth is flat, uses words that they do not know the meaning. It really shows their low IQ.

Alright, alright. You are wondering what happened to No Concepts. The images below should explain it all.

FE Debbie & FE Antonio Claims @RedsRhetoric Doesn’t Know Triangles & FE Don’t Know Globe History

Hello again everyone, I have been doing some more watching of videos with flat Earth believers, mostly debates because I don’t think I could handle watching a video by a flat Earth believer without someone with common sense countering their claims. I value my IQ.

FE Debbie

I recently watched a debate that happened back in the spring between everyone favourite flat Earth buster, Reds Rhetoric, and flat Earth believer Debbie.

OMFG!

Debbie has to be the most dumb women I have ever heard speak. What is even more shocking is her photo shows her being a brunette and not a blonde as one would assume. In fact she may be even more stupid than a blonde. She actually makes other flat earth believers like D Marble look smart and all he wants is for everyone to suck his balls.

Reds Rhetoric Doesn’t Know Triangles

Another flat earth believer named Antonio Subirates did a response video recently to globe Earth believer Conspiracy Catz and right near the beginning, he said something that shocked the heck out of me. He said that Reds Rhetoric doesn’t know triangles. WHAT?

Triangles is one of the easiest things to learn and is taught at an early age. For me it was in elementary school, around grade five I believe. A triangle is simply a closed shape with three straight sides. Inside angles can me right angle, acute angle and obtuse angle. There really isn’t much else to a triangle so I would love to know more of what Antonio meant when he said Reds doesn’t know triangles.

They Don’t Know Globe History

Flat Earth believers constantly get the history of people believing the Earth is a globe. Another video from a few months ago where YouTube channel Non Sequitur Show had on Reds Rhetoric and multiple flat earth believers in a timed competition type debate. I noticed one of the flat Earth participants as well as others in more videos I have watched that they like to claim the globe Earth belief has only been around for like 500 years. This is absolutely false. The first written report we have of the earth being a globe and not flat dates back to around 500 BC as a speculation until around 200 BC, when Hellenistic Astronomy established the spherical shape of the Earth as a physical given.

Water Doesn’t Stick To A Ball

If you are a flat Earth believer and stand by the whole “water doesn’t stick to a ball” by those stupid experiments of people pouring water on a basketball or other round object…well I believe I know how to make such thing happen. I am working on figuring out the correct objects required and then of course scrounging up the money to buy the objects.

@RedsRhetoric VS @So_Israelite Debate Review

About three or four months ago, YouTube video suggestions displayed a video of someone debunking another person claim that our earth is flat. I did not know that there was this movement of people claiming the earth is flat.

Since then I have watched three so called “debates” between YouTuber Reds Rhetoric and a flat earth believer.  To try and get back in to posting things on this blog, I have decided to post my personal review of last night debate between Reds Rhetoric and Southern Israelite.

First, let me make it clear that I have no degrees in science, astronomy, etc., so this review is based on what I have learned throughout the years of observation and watching documentaries on such subjects.

Last night debate was the third debate I have watched and one thing I can declare is that Southern Israelite doesn’t understand what a debate is. Instead of presenting actual evidence to support the flat earth theory, he only presented quotes of people who have been dead for hundreds of years.

Many people who were declared genius centuries ago have been proven to be wrong with some of their beliefs thanks to the advancement in the field of science.  That’s what is great about science, it is constantly improving, finding new things we did not know.  So to solely believe in a flat earth because some dead scientist from hundreds of years ago said so, is absolutely wrong and in my mind, proves how closed minded the person is.

I will give praise to Southern Israelite for one thing, his vocabulary is extremely impressive for a flat earth believer. So many flat earth believers are just horrible with their vocabulary but I do have some doubts Southern Israelite actually knew the true meaning of the words he was using.  That is the problem when someone simply reads reports without the education in that subject to properly understand what you are reading.

To the flat earth believers who might be reading this, if you think you should see the curve of the earth simply proves you do not understand just how massive our world is, not to mention how many people around the world would have to be in on the cover up.  Maybe my next post will be listing everyone who would have to be a part of the cover up.
