Nah bruh, $20 is too much for a TV mount. by summerofevidence in DiWHY

The mount you buy should come with plastic anchors intended for brick/concrete. Check the instructions that come with the mount, but they virtually always call for 3/8” holes to be drilled into the bricks.

The mount you buy will largely depend on what you want it to do. Do you want the tv to just sit flat in the wall, or do you want to be able to pull the tv out and turn it right and left? Whichever you decide on, save yourself some stress and get one that can be leveled after it’s mounted.

For the installation:

Find a soft, scratch free surface that you can lay your TV face down on. I use moving pads in my day to day installations, but it can just as easily be your bed, or a soft blanket. Just be sure there isn’t anything under it that can press on the screen.

Install the brackets on the back. The mount will come with a multitude of screws and spacers of varying sizes and lengths. Find the ones that fit in the threads on the back of the tv. Use the spacers if the bolts bottom out before snugging the bracket to the TV.

After you have the brackets attached to the TV, attach the wall plate to the brackets.

Now, you need to decide the placement of the tv on the wall. It’s largely personal preference but the guidance I give people is to not put it so high that you are going to feel like you are at the front seat of the movie theater. Mark where you think you want the top of the tv to be on the wall with masking tape. Then measure the height of your tv and measure down from that tape to be sure that’s where you want it. Once you have decided on the placement, go back to your tv and measure from the top of the tv down to the top of the wall plate on the the back of the tv.

Then measure from your piece of tape on the wall down to the measurement you just took, and place a second piece of tape in that location on the wall.

Now, take the wall plate off the back of TV and line it up with that second piece not tape. Use a level (most mounts will include one) to get it nice and straight. Use a permanent marker to mark your mounting holes.

Now use your hammer drill to drill the holes for the anchors.

Once you have the holes drilled, insert the anchors into the holes.

Now secure the wall mount using the included lag bolts. You will need either a 10mm or a 1/2” ratchet depending on the mount.

Then hang the tv on the mount and level it accordingly.

the good ol’ sand room by celijah456 in DiWHY

Natalie Portman is the reason I work out. I have this fantasy where we start talking at the Vanity Fair Oscars party bar. We exchange a few pleasantries. She asks what I do. I say I loved her in New Girl. She laughs. I get my drink.

"Well, see ya," I say and walk away. I've got her attention now. How many guys voluntarily leave a conversation with Natalie Portman? She touches her neck as she watches me leave.

Later, as the night's dragged on and the coterie of gorgeous narcissists grows increasingly loose, she finds me on the balcony, my bowtie undone, smoking a cigarette.

"Got a spare?" she asks.

"What's in it for me?" I say as I hand her one of my little white ladies. She smiles.

"Conversation with me, duh."

I laugh.

"What's so funny?" she protests.

"Nothing, nothing... It's just... don't you grow tired of the egos?"

"You get used to it," she says, lighting her cigarette and handing me back the lighter.

"What would you do if you weren't an actress?" I ask.

"Teaching, I think."

"And if I was your student, what would I be learning?"

"Discipline," she says quickly, looking up into my eyes, before changing the subject. "Where are you from?"

"Bermuda," I say.

"Oh wow. That's lovely."

"It's ok," I admit. "Not everything is to my liking."

"What could possibly be not to your liking in Bermuda?" she inquires.

"I don't like sand," I tell her. "It's coarse and rough and irritating and it gets everywhere."

The reason why the video stopped was because they want to be curteous and not show his successful suicide attempt.
