I was watching some Achievement Hunter and remembered I had an old account on this site... I logged back in on a whim with the password I used for everything back then. God it's like I'm looking through a window at my childhood self and he's making faces and generally being a stupid ass. I can't bring myself to change anything at all about this though, I like that my early teen state of mind, errors and all, is preserved forever. If nothing else it keeps me from being too judgmental of teenagers. That is all, I'm not going to become active again on this site, though I still watch RT videos.

Two days ago I got back from canoeing 100 miles on the allagash river through rapids, wind and rocks. It was extreme. First, a float plane flew us in and dropped off us and some boats literally a hundred miles from anywhere at all, and we paddled to civilization. P. S., I flew the float plane for a few minutes which was cool. The only thing I will not miss is digging a hole and crapping in it.
P.S. this was the next special trip following last years, whcih involved a 33 mile hike with a 30 pound pack that contained everything necessary for survival for eight days (minus xbox), a white water rafting sortie which involved class 4 (FUCKING AWESOME 4 FOOT WAVES) and class 3 (slightly less awesome but still cool. That was fun too.

halo 3 trailer!
i watched it like 90 times, and then after I thought i saw something, i watched it again pausing and playing really fast, which is my best approximation of frame by frame. I noticed some extremely weird stuff, which i will post screenshots of in my images. Its weird. All of the pictures are from the trailer that i downloaded from bungie.net with nothing changed at all. It looks as though Cortana is possessed by flood, but thats my opinion. Comment on yours!
note- i left the less interesting ones out to save space - if you want look at trailer frame by frame
PS OMFG FINALS ARE GOING TO SUCK DOWN MY SOUL AND KILL MY SPIRIT
PPS Oblivion for xbox 360 is my favorite game of all time. Even after the euphoria of a new game has worn off and I still play it as much as humanely possible. ( I logged over 48 hours in two weeks- a seventh of my time, counting sleeping and eating and school) I am addicted.

i found this on ocheapjob's journal, who found it on Tony Ostrich*'s journal, who says he didn't write it. It's origin is unknown.
The complete military history of france
Note: I found this I didnt make it
- Gallic Wars
- Lost. In a war whose ending foreshadows the next 2000 years of French history, France is conquered by of all things, an Italian.
- Hundred Years War
- Mostly lost, saved at last by female schizophrenic who inadvertently creates The First Rule of French Warfare; "France's armies are victorious only when not led by a Frenchman." Sainted.
- Italian Wars
- Lost. France becomes the first and only country to ever lose two wars when fighting Italians.
- Wars of Religion
- France goes 0-5-4 against the Huguenots
- Thirty Years War
- France is technically not a participant, but manages to get invaded anyway. Claims a tie on the basis that eventually the other participants started ignoring her.
- War of Revolution
- Tied. Frenchmen take to wearing red flowerpots as chapeaux.
- The Dutch War
- War of the Augsburg League/King William's War/French and Indian War
- Lost, but claimed as a tie. Three ties in a row induces deluded Frogophiles the world over to label the period as the height of French military power.
- War of the Spanish Succession
- Lost. The War also gave the French their first taste of a Marlborough, which they have loved every since.
- American Revolution
- In a move that will become quite familiar to future Americans, France claims a win even though the English colonists saw far more action. This is later known as "de Gaulle Syndrome", and leads to the Second Rule of French Warfare; "France only wins when America does most of the fighting."
- French Revolution
- Won, primarily due the fact that the opponent was also French.
- The Napoleonic Wars
- Lost. Temporary victories (remember the First Rule!) due to leadership of a Corsican, who ended up being no match for a British footwear designer.
- The Franco-Prussian War
- Lost. Germany first plays the role of drunk Frat boy to France's ugly girl home alone on a Saturday night.
- World War I
- Tied and on the way to losing, France is saved by the United States. Thousands of French women find out what it's like to not only sleep with a winner, but one who doesn't call her "Fraulein." Sadly, widespread use of condoms by American forces forestalls any improvement in the French bloodline.
- World War II
- Lost. Conquered French liberated by the United States and Britain just as they finish learning the Horst Wessel Song.
- War in Indochina
- Lost. French forces plead sickness; take to bed with the Dien Bien Flu
- Algerian Rebellion
- Lost. Loss marks the first defeat of a western army by a Non-Turkic Muslim force since the Crusades, and produces the First Rule of Muslim Warfare; "We can always beat the French." This rule is identical to the First Rules of the Italians, Russians, Germans, English, Dutch, Spanish, Vietnamese and Esquimaux.
- War on Terrorism
- France, keeping in mind its recent history, surrenders to Germans and Muslims just to be safe. Attempts to surrender to Vietnamese ambassador fail after he takes refuge in a McDonald's.
The question for any country silly enough to count on the French should not be "Can we count on the French?", but rather "How long until France collapses?"
"Going to war without France is like going deer hunting without an accordion. All you do is leave behind a lot of noisy baggage."
Or, better still, the quote from last week's Wall Street Journal: "They're there when they need you."
With only an hour and a half of research, Jonathan Duczkowski provided the following losses:
Norse invasions, 841-911.
After having their way with the French for 70 years, the Norse are bribed by a French King named Charles the Simple (really!) who gave them Normandy in return for peace. Normans proceed to become just about the only positive military bonus in France's [favour] for next 500 years.
France attempts to take advantage of Mexico's weakness following its thorough thrashing by the U.S. 20 years earlier ("Halls of Montezuma"). Not surprisingly, the only unit to distinguish itself is the French Foreign Legion (consisting of, by definition, non-Frenchmen). Booted out of the country a little over a year after arrival.
Panama jungles 1881-1890.
No one but nature to fight, France still loses; canal is eventually built by the U.S. 1904-1914.
Should be noted that the Grand Armee was largely (~%50) composed of non-Frenchmen after 1804 or so. Mainly disgruntled minorities and anti-monarchists. Not surprisingly, these performed better than the French on many occasions.
French defeated by rebellion after sacrificing 4,000 Poles to yellow fever. Shows another rule of French warfare; when in doubt, send an ally.
British were far more charming then French, ended up victors. Therefore the British are well known for their tea, and the French for their whine (er, wine...). Ensures 200 years of bad teeth in England.
Barbary Wars, middle ages-1830.
Pirates in North Africa continually harass European shipping in Meditteranean. France's solution: pay them to leave us alone. America's solution: kick their asses ("the Shores of Tripoli"). [America's] first overseas victories, won 1801-1815.
1798-1801, Quasi-War with U.S.
French privateers (semi-legal pirates) attack U.S. shipping. U.S. fights France at sea for 3 years; French eventually cave; sets precedent for next 200 years of Franco-American relations.
Moors in Spain, late 700s-early 800s.

my favorite episode ever. here is all the lines, 85% of them straight from my memory. Nobody better steal this, I worked darn hard to make it. (tucker is moaning.) "c'mon mister blue guy, you gotta wake up! wake up!" "it hurts... just let me die." "you can't die! I'm bored! all these girls will talk about is chick stuff! and not the fun chick stuff, like ribbons in uniforms!" (Tex. talking to Sheila) "I don't have treads... but I often find them sharing a thing they really shouldn't be." "ya see? boring stuff, like oppression, and a hostile work environment!" "get doc... I need doc..." "I can't! he got possessed by that evil guy and they escaped! he's the one that shot you! don't you remember?" "I know. I want him to shoot me again." "now now now! sounds some one has a case of the poor me's. if you were gonna die you would've done it by now! maybe you'll just have to realize that you're just going to have to live with intense pain." "get that sarge guy... have him make me a new body," "I can't! we're out of parts because we overused that joke! and now sarge left when the others chased doc! but don't you worry. they left a long time ago, so I'm sure they'll be back any minute. Simmons had a foolproof plan to catch him." "in a room, Simmons is alone.) "hello? hello? guys? is anybody here? thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s just great. I guess we all got separated in the teleporters. Sarge! this is Simmons 2.0 do you read me? apparently your plan to chase Lopez and doc has failed miserably. I appear to be stuck in some kind of nexus of teleporters, which could take you to anyplace in the universe! or it's a janitor's closet hell I don't F#$%in' know. Sarge are you there! Sarge!" (n beaver creek, sarge and caboose.) "Hello, anybody! do you read me? do I read you? anybody! nobody? okay. I don't think the others are coming." " my toes... are getting pruny..." "okay, why don't we try to find omali?" " I know... where you can find... omali. he lived inside my head for awhile, maybe he left an address to send his mail. we were like roommates." "sounds like he took some of the furniture when he left. and the carpet. and the drapes. and I wouldn't expect to get that deposit back, if you know what I mean." "sergeant! look! a sleeping person!" "oh, macaroon........ He ain't sleepin' son. he's dead." "oh good. at first... I thought that was me, because... I am blue and I like to sleep. but if he is dead that cannot be me. that would be silly." " no doubt he was killed by our very enemy. once again, I find myself torn. on one hand, there's one less blue in the universe. but now doc's got a bigger body count than me! and that just won't do. no sir. Rest in Peace... scumbag." "look! more sleeping people! it must be naptime! but who has naptime now? naptime comes before bedtime, not after. I think these people are just making up times!" "what the Samuel Helsinki happened here?!? there must have been an enormous battle! Hello!! is anyone okay??? are there any survivor's!?!? preferably any red survivor's!?!?!! don't let that discourage you from speaking up if your blue. I won't step on your neck or anything like that." "am I allowed to answer?" "shhh, quiet. you here that?" "yes. that noise is called water. it is very wet, and very slushy-" "I was talking about the trumpets, bluetard." "I have to go tho the bathroom now, which is odd... because I already went when we were standing in the creek together. wait a minute, I know that song, that's reveille! why would someone be playing reveille in the middle of a-"(all the dead guys jump and start screaming) "YAAAH!!!!!WEEEEEE!!!!!!!WOOOOOO!!!!!!WOOOOHOOOO!!!!"(sarge)"sweet jibbly jiblets!!!!!! (caboose) "running time!!!!! (each side runs to their respective bases) "hut hut hut hut hut hut hut hut hut hut hut hut hut!!!" (sarge breaks the silence) "what just happened here?" "I think all the sleeping people were trying to-" "that was rhetorical. come over here, gimme a boost!" "okay... you are a good person, and people say nice things about you." "not a morale boost, moron, a physical one! I need to see what's in that window!" (caboose looks) " that window is very high. I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think you are tall enough.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“I know!! I need you to help me look through it!Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“I donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t think I am tall enough either. Also, my head is round. That window is squareÃ¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“Come here, you....Ã¢â‚¬Â (Sarge lifts caboose so he can see through the window.) "What do you see?" Ã¢â‚¬Å“I see... a room.Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“And? WhatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s in the room?Ã¢â‚¬Â Ã¢â‚¬Å“there are some walls... and.. some ceilings.... Wait! just one ceiling." "what's makin' all that racket?" "KILL THE RED, KILL THE RED KILL THE RED!!!" "you are not going to like it." "Caboose, I have a veeery bad feeling about this- What's that!!" "CHARGE!!!!!" "c'mon, caboose, we gotta get to the higher ground!" "Sergeant.... I am scared of our new friends." (the 2 sides battle)(red religous guy who worships flag says) "stop fighting, stop fighting!!!! I possess the blue flag!!" "(anonymous red guy) it's more beautiful than I ever imagined!" "I have seen the top of the mountain! and you will worship me as though I was a god!" (they kill him in one second.) "I regret nothing! I lived a life few man dared to dream...." (they fight) " headshot!" (he explodes) "aw, you rocket whore!" " the only good blue is a dead blue!" "right this waters cold!" "hey!" "ho!" "hey" "ho! "Hey! (explodes)" "weak! you took my kill!" "I didn't see your name on it." (walks away, gets shot by a camper) " aw you F@#$in camping B&^ch!" "It's a legitimate strategy!" "whoa!" "Damn!" :hey blue! we're the only ones left! lets work together!" "whaddya mean?" "I'm coming out!" "okay, I'm coming out too!" "whaddya mean, we can work as a team?" (beats him to death) I bash you over the head with my rifle and you die. good team work, you F#$%in noob. good game everyone. GG, man, GG. (dies) " I have no idea what I just saw, where this place is, or where in the hell omali is! my only choice is to blame Griff, for coming up with such a flawed plan.
