    • A bad week... Worse?

      10 years ago

      VinE38

      Gawd, I haven't touched this journal in ages. But something like this requires it:

      You all know last week sucked in terms of celeb deaths. But the worst of it was last Sunday: Celebrated pitchman of OxyClean and Orange-Glo fame Billy Mays has died at age fifty. Sure, I only ever got one product he advertised, and that was a gift, but Mays was still damn good at what he did. And let's face it, how could you hate the guy? He was clearly doing something right if he got a fan following doing infomercials. Television is going to be a lot more quiet now, and I mean that in the worst way.

      Autopsy reports say he died of a heart attack caused by hypertensive heart disease. But personally, I know better...

      Damn you, Vince Offer, damn you to hell! You and your ShamWow!

      An open letter to the Guy in the Chevy Cavalier Behind Me While I Drove Home Today:

      Well, you've certainly done it. You've shown me a greater level of vehicular jackassery than I've ever seen. Not only do you nearly ram my car from behind, then stay no less than three feet from my rear bumper at all times; but you find it appropriate to honk your horn at me twice a minute and flash your high beams at me in an effort to make me go faster. I'm sorry the street we were on at the time was a no-passing zone, and I'm sorry the speed limit was 35 miles per hour. But those are things beyond my control.

      When the road did widen to two lane traffic, you did pass me, as expected. And that's when I noticed the university student parking sticker on your rear window. Perhaps I was too early to judge, perhaps you've just had enough of this last week of final exams and want to get home to your family for the holidays as fast as humanly possible. And then you cut me off across two lanes of traffic to get into the Wal-Mart parking lot. That's when I realized I was right when I first assessed you as a complete and total jackass.

      Perhaps we'll meet again on the road someday, jackass. Hell, maybe you'll even get into the accident you seem so eager to cause. Your Cavalier versus my Explorer in a rear end collision. It'll be fun for everyone.

      And to all others reading this, please: Don't be like this horrible person. Every holiday season, thousands become the victims of idiotic drivers thinking that painting their vehicle a bright color and pasting tacky decals on the side can somehow turn their sedan into a street racer, which they have a right to 'race' on every street at all times. Remember: Only through jackass awareness can we achieve effective jackass prevention.

    • Have you heard about the bird?

      10 years ago

      VinE38

      No, not a Family Guy joke, if that's what you thought.

      Apparently my fam got our Thanksgiving turkey too early, and thus it thawed out too early. So last Saturday was Pre-Thanksgiving, with a random turkey coming out of the oven at nine o'clock at night and almost immediately cut into leftover portions. It's still a few days before Turkey Day proper, and the refrigerator is already full of the stuff. And yes, we are having another for the actual holiday.

      I'm gonna be so burned out on poultry by the time November is over...

      PS: SOMEBODY SHOT THE CAR!!!

    • "Ideally you will run 100 meters..."

      People of Rooster Teeth: I give you the greatest Flash game on the face of the internet.

      QWOP!

      ...I'll be honest, if you can make it 50 meters, I'll be impressed. What I'm wondering to myself is, if this game is so difficult and repetitive, why do I keep playing it?

    • Ba-racking the vote.

      10 years ago

      VinE38

      I voted for the winning team yesterday, and I feel like a winner today. Hell, I don't care how you voted, every American should feel like a winner today.

      I've got optimism, people, and a lot of it. Here's hoping that Obama can fulfill that hope to make things better.

    • I could be rich... Not really.

      10 years ago

      VinE38

      So I got this interesting e-mail today... Apparently a very rich man recently died when his private jet crashed in Africa. Most of his family was also on board, and were also killed in the crash. His nephew and only living relative would like me to allow him to access my bank account so he can transfer 10.3 million US dollars of his uncle's money to my name so it won't be transferred to government care. For doing this favor, I would be allowed to keep 8 million dollars of the money.

      My very mature and well thought out response to the situation:

      lololololololololololololscam.

    • Heh? HEH?!

      VinE38

      A word to McCain voters: While I don't plan on trying to change how you vote (it's your right to choose who you vote for, not mine), I think you should be aware before you hit the polls next month:

      You may be voting for The Penguin.

      Just a friendly heads-up.

      In other news, how about that Tokyo Game Show, heh? New No More Heroes and Halo, heh? Pretty cool new stuff coming, heh? HEH?!

    • Jack Thompson: Disbarred!

      10 years ago

      VinE38

      Everyone familiar with Mr. Jack Thompson, the Miami attorney with a staunch position against gaming? You know, the one who brings almost constant legal action against video game publishing companies and occasionally harasses gamers themselves?

      Thirty days from now, pending a retrial (if the motion is given by an attorney in good standing with the Florida Bar), he shall be permanently disbarred. This will effectively leave him unable to practice law for the rest of his life.

      And as an added bonus, he has to pay the Florida Bar fees amounting to $43,675.35.

      So I'm gonna go ahead and say... Cel-e-brate good times! Come on!

    • Who's this "Rubik" anyway?

      I solved my Rubik's Cube today. About five years after I first scrambled it.

      Not exactly record time, but the sense of self-satisfaction makes up for it. I beat you Hungarians! I beat your goddamn puzzle of doom!

      You expect a lot from a guy who's been in office for less than a month, don't you?

      But to the point, I mainly voted for him because of his support for a universal healthcare system, a strong pro-environmental record including measures to reduce fossil fuel consumption, the idea of tax cuts being focused more on the middle class rather than attempting a "trickle-down" economy, and working toward some form of economic stability. Yes, I can't be sure if any of these things will come to pass during his presidency, that's true for any new President. But I felt it was best to go with a candidate who at least showed some potential to do some of the things that really need to be done for this country. And I at least plan to give him more than two weeks in office before I decide to declare him a lame duck.

      And another question now crosses my mind: If you don't care for Obama, who do you believe could do better? Who did you vote for in the election, if at all? And in the case you didn't vote for anyone, who do you think should be leading this country; or perhaps I should ask what system of government you think is best?


      I want a form of government that works. So far it doesn't exist. This country isn't a democracy anymore by the way, It's leaning very close on fascism. Especially with the kind of corruption in our own senate with the republicans and democrats. I'm getting very sick of their bullshit. Like I asked. What is Obama going to change? How is he going to change it?

      To be a politician is to be the master in the art of bullshit. Clinton said he would change things and so did George Bush. What did they do? Take a shit on my front porch. Why should I vote for the only two parties that are going to win. It's like choosing between dog shit and cat shit. Thanks for wanting me to choose those two tards. Being 20 years old almost at your prime, I'm surprised you bought what Obama said. After all they'll be damned if a third party gets in the presidential office. By the way to answer your question, I don't vote for any other party, because none of them are any better then the republicans or democrats.

      Well, no actually. I decided that I wasn't going to go back that fucking far for some missions. So I started a new character, and I'm just going to do those missions, and another later on if it turns out I can't access it in my first game. Either way, this game moved from the "buy" slot to the "rent" slot. I'm pretty far into it anyways. I'll just rent it again until I get all the achievements, since the story is totally unimportant, and since I'm not the kind of guy to do multiple plays for single player games.

    • silent_kid

      10 years ago

      Well. I hate the mechanic. It's fine for the people who want to do it, but don't force it on those who actually want to go through all the missions. If I had know it was possible, I would have avoided that area, and been fine with it.

    • silent_kid

      So...I know you don't generally like RPGs, but Fable is different than the traditional ones...and Fable 2 has offline co-op...so yea. Awesometastic sauce.

    • PapaBrain

      11 years ago

      Yeah, not a lot of people like his movies. I am one of the view that do... and if you're looking for an explanation for everything in the movie, then don't bother.

    • silent_kid

      11 years ago

      Yea. I put two journals of basically the same thing. Because I can't wait. God...me needs it now. But yea, I won't be skipping class, I have no classes until 4 on Tuesday, so I'll have plenty of time to play before then.

    • silent_kid

      11 years ago

      Alright. I was going to say: "One of the things I loved about No More Halo was the fact that Travis Chief was able to obtain different clothing. That green armor got old after a while. Also, I didn't think that the ending to No More Halo was bad at all. I actually thought it summed things up well." Then I was going to photoshop in Master Chief's helmet into a picture of Travis versus what's-his-face from the ending of NMH and then add a picture of Halo blowing up in the backround, with Cortana loking all concerned.

      Yea still haven't gotten the revolver yet. I have all the weapons, because I beat it alone on Professional, and that unlocks everything else. Just haven't upgraded it yet. Will soon, though.

      Hey. Well...Microsoft is supposedly sending me a new HD for my second 360, so...yea. But the other one is still broken, and I have no money to pay for repairs, and my mom doesn't want to...so I'm trying to get the thing to red ring so I can have be covered under warranty, but yea...we'll see how it goes...two Xboxes and two Xbox 360s...at least one of each is broken...ugh...

      EDIT: For you, that means if I can't get it to red ring or whatever else does or doesn't happen, you would have to pay to repair it if you bought it...I'm still working on this though.
