      I'm starting up a youtube channel again and already know what I want to do for my first series. I want to start by doing a review of Star Wars: Republic Commando and then do a long let's play of it.

      Do you guys think this is a cool idea or should I try something else? (Would love a suggestion "if else")

      So today my wife's aunt and two of her kids come over for a visit. It's been since our wedding since the last time I saw any of them. While at dinner my mother-in-law is talking about how the aunt's oldest son has been in a slump and depressed because of some really rotten things his father had said to him. She then said that he seemed to be much more cheerful and happier than he has been lately and whenever he's around me his attitude improves and his maturity goes up to. It's really nice to feel like you have a positive effect on someone's life.

    • The good and the bad

      I'll start with the bad since it's less significant and I like to leave things on a positive note:

      Google Chrome will soon stop supporting Adobe Flash player. While this may not seem like something worth mentioning, I recently found out that Hulu and this site use flash player for their videos, meaning my tab crashes when I try to use the plug-in.

      Now for the good:

      I've got a job interview later today with Impact Marketing. I'm hoping this will be worthwhile and not another semi-commission job like Vector was. Wish me luck!

      ...Nope. I just couldn't sleep last night. Although a Beastie Boys reference seemed slightly appropriate.

    • My new trophy

      4 years ago

      For anyone who doesn't know what my job is, I work at a gas station. One of my responsibilities is to card people for tobacco and alcohol and be wary of fake IDs.

      So this kid (he looks like a high schooler or college freshman) comes into the store and wants to buy a cigarello. I ask for his ID and he says its in the car. He runs outside and around the corner where me and my coworker (Maria) can't see him. After a few minutes he comes back in and hands me a Colorado drivers license. As I'm inspecting it, the "holographic" image doesn't seem quite right and I make a comment about it and hand it to my coworker. I then hear the kid mumble something about it's his friend's ID. I ask him to repeat what he said, to which he confirmed it was his friend's ID. We tell him he can either leave without the ID or talk to the police, to which he leaves after arguing with us his friend needs it back.

      About 20 minutes pass and this other kid comes in and says his ID was stolen and he saw the person who did it leave our store. He asks if we have it and shows us a Colorado driving permit, identical to the one we just confiscated. Maria tells him we turned it into the police and he can collect it from them (which we hadn't done). He then asks why we would do that. Maria's replied because it was stolen, we had to turn it in. The kid then asks, "Was it stolen?"

      Honestly, how stupid can these guys be? He pissed us off so bad I cut the ID into little bits like a credit card. Now I'm keeping the bits as a trophy.

      TL;DR
      Two stupid kids tried buying tobacco with a questionable ID, which was confiscated and then cut to pieces, which I am keeping and starting a collection.

    • I think my RT homepage had a stroke

      I start scrolling down the homepage n my RT profile to see if anyone has posted anything new. Other than the 2 most recent posts at the very top, the same 4 posts keeping looping the further I scroll down. Is the site having a mini stroke somewhere that's causing this?

      If none of you have seen it yet, it's pretty frickin epic. They mentioned it on The Patch and for only 8 minutes of your day you can enjoy this wonderful creation that someone devoted 4 years into drawing and animating.
