      Today's Lesson Brought To You By Beer.

      3 years ago

      I stumbled upon this story somewhere on the web, and couldn't help but feel compelled to share it with all of you. ;D

      1zfy43.jpg

      A professor stood before his philosophy class and had some items in front of him. When the class began, he wordlessly picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with golf balls. He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.

      The professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles roll
      ed into the open areas between the golf balls. He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was.

      The professor next picked up a box of sand and poured it into the jar. Of course, the sand filled up everything else. He asked once more if the jar was full.. The students responded with a unanimous ‘yes.’

      The professor then produced two Beers from under the table and poured the entire contents into the jar effectively filling the empty space between the sand.The students laughed..

      ‘Now,’ said the professor as the laughter subsided, ‘I want you to recognize that this jar represents your life. The golf balls are the important things—-your family, your children, your health, your friends and your favorite passions—-and if everything else was lost and only they remained, your life would still be full. The pebbles are the other things that matter like your job, your house and your car.. The sand is everything else—-the small stuff.

      ‘If you put the sand into the jar first,’ he continued, ‘there is no room for the pebbles or the golf balls. The same goes for life.

      If you spend all your time and energy on the small stuff you will never have room for the things that are important to you.

      Pay attention to the things that are critical to your happiness.

      Spend time with your children. Spend time with your parents. Visit with grandparents. Take your spouse out to dinner. Play another 18. There will always be time to clean the house and mow the lawn.

      Take care of the golf balls first—-the things that really matter. Set your priorities. The rest is just sand.

      One of the students raised her hand and inquired what the Beer represented. The professor smiled and said, ‘I’m glad you asked.’ The Beer just shows you that no matter how full your life may seem, there’s always room for a couple of Beers with a friend.

      1zfy43.jpg

      Wishing everyone a happy and healthy 2013. Go out there and create your own happiness!

      Little Lost Platformer

      3 years ago

      Super Mario Bros. 2: The Lost Levels comes out on the 3DS today and to be honest I'm a little surprised at the lack of hype. God knows the prime advantage of owning a handheld device, namely that of Nintendo these days, is for the platformer exclusives. Yeah, yeah.. so essentially it's only just been ported to the DS now, years (I'm being generous) after it was remade as part of the Super Mario All-Stars Collection on the SNES. However, I'd be lying if I said that watching Episode 6 of The Gauntlet didn't reignite the fire deep within my Power Flower loins to get my hands on another decent game on the 3DS.. at least until Animal Crossing finally comes out.. then it'll be years of lovable torture courtesy of Tom Nook, that thieving bastard.

      I digress, but why not go check it out? Read a review, watch a recap, go to the store and feel the power of Mario's fantastically crafted mustache and handyman appeal in the palm of your hands...That got weird didn't it? What I'm trying to say here is: educate yourself! The internet can be a magical place if you use it for good.

      Hell, while you're at it, watch a few of our gentleman struggle to get half way through one of the first levels in it's full-on 8 bit glory via last week's RT Life: Around the Block. Great. Grand. Wonderful.

      PS: IF I DON'T GET INVITED TO THE NEXT INFORMAL ROOSTER TEETH CONSOLE THROWBACK GATHERING I WILL TOSS MY HANDKERCHIEF, ON THE GROUND.

      Dammit. I'm going to the store.

      Hey Ali, I had a group poll about whether or not Achievement Hunter should do a Let's Play of Happy Wars and they voted "hell yes" on it and I just figured you could rally that information to them and see what they think

      Hey Ali I figured this was the best way to reach you... About my Lets Play group that you are currently an admin of, people have been messaging me about having you do a lets play with the community... And if so I would put a pole up of which games to play... A list that you would send me... And then you would choose a time and one of us will choose people to play as well.

      And one more thing... Rock on!

      Ali (I barely learned that's how you spell your name) you are crazy gorgeous and if you were nominated for prettiest girl on Earth, you would win because I would vote for you like, a million times. I don't think that's possible but I'd find a way! I guess if I were to clone myself... I could give my clones their own personal identities and have them vote for you. Yeaaahh that would work!

      Wishing everyone a Happy New Year a little early. The time difference between Australia and America means I'll be at work when you guys start to ring in 2013 so I thought I'd jump in early and wish everyone all the best for the coming year and hope it's even better than this year. Oh and I made a quick thing about the Gauntlet:
      Roses are Red
      Violets are Blue
      We need a Team Yellow,
      So how about you?
      or
      The Gauntlet is here, the fighting commences
      All the while fans break down the fences.
      It's Red vs Blue and Green vs Yellow,
      All the while Burnie's acting a little mellow.
      The challenge is set, the money is primed
      Can the gamers live up to their rep in time?
      First Blue is gone, followed by Green,
      Sad days for coaches but Burnie stays mean.
      Nineteen started, yet four remain,
      Can Tim salvage a victory for those who were slain?
      First David is gone, then Kyle was next.
      Josh and Tim feel a little bit hexed.
      A battle of Tetris with nerves of steel,
      In the end one will rise and one will kneel.
      Josh goes down, losing to Tim.
      None could stand against him.
      Nineteen there were, until there was Tim.

      Two months ago, I told a little story about how I was looking for colleges, stumbled across University of Hartford and found Ali by mistake and now I found out that it was the first school to accept me. Not going to lie, pretty pumped right now. Ali, it seems as though you were a good luck charm :).
