It all happend when my friends and I play Shotguns and Swords on Lockout two days ago...
I was losing 48-49 to my friend (Mike) in a game to 50. And I had him in my aimer with the Sword turned red. I lunged at him, missed but on the way by I threw a plasma at him. He got stuck and I was laughing my ass off. Then in all of my excitement I accidently jumped off the edge of the catwalk. I was like "ohh shit!!!!" Then out of desperation I threw another plasma into the air as I was falling, and what do you know it him Mike again when he jumped into the middle of the level!!!!! Stuck, game over, 50-49 me... I have never let him forget

Luckily for Basso, Ullrich, Valverde, Vinokourov and the rest of the riders likely to duke it out for the win next year, Armstrong won't be returning to France to race bikes ever again. With a record seventh yellow jersey safely in hand and ready to be mounted on his wall in his Austin, Texas home, Armstrong has proven that he is the greatest Tour rider to ever live.
His achievements are unparalleled in the 102-year history of the event and will probably never be equaled. If there is a rider who will one day surpass Armstrong's record of seven straight Tour wins, he likely hasn't been born yet. When Armstrong announced in April his plan to retire following the Tour de France, he made it clear that he wanted to go out on top.
Armstrong couldn't possibly have achieved anything greater in his Tour career than seven consecutive victories. He now stands alone atop a Himalayan peak that juts higher into the rarified ether of sporting achievement than Everest, K2, Kanchenjunga, Lhotse and the rest of the world 's 10 highest mountains combined.
Armstrong's commanding victory is the equivalent to an NBA player taking on the league's best in a winner-take all game, leading 100-50 with 10 seconds left in the game, and then leaping over his opponents from the three-point line to unload a one-handed, 360 dunk.
Armstrong's seventh victory will be remembered as his most remarkable because of its place in the record books, but his first Tour win in 1999 was his most unbelievable and spectacular. More than any other sporting event, the Tour de France illustrates the triumph of will over limits of mind and body.
When Armstrong survived his battle with cancer and came back from the brink of death to demolish his opponents and win the Tour, his victory told a story that was without equal in the event's history and transcended the sport. Each of Armstrong's successive victories seemed more important because it brought Armstrong closer to breaking the longstanding record of five overall wins, but none was as important as his first.
At the 1999, Tour Armstrong took four stage victories and had a winning margin of 7 minutes, 37 seconds. In 2000, he won one stage and took the overall with a winning margin of 6 minutes, 2 seconds. In 2001, he equaled American Greg LeMond's three Tour victories, took four stages, and won by 6 minutes, 44 seconds. In 2002, Armstrong attacked on the 11th stage to move into the overall lead and then won the race by 7 minutes, 17 seconds. Armstrong's attempt at a record-tying fifth Tour win in 2003 proved to be the most difficult Tour of his post-cancer career. On stage 15, he wrecked on a key climb but got back on his bike and went on to win the Tour by his slimmest margin, 1 minute, 1 second. 2004 saw Armstrong back in dominant form. He took five stages to win a record sixth consecutive Tour by 6 minutes, 19 seconds.
If Armstrong had only won the 1999 Tour, he would still be regarded as one of the greatest Tour riders ever. To go on to win the race six more times puts Armstrong on a pedestal that no other rider in the race's history could ever touch. While Armstrong won just one individual stage in the 2005 Tour, the same number he won during 2003's year of crisis, he crushed his rivals this year and rode a strategically flawless race that unfolded without any crashes, illnesses or other incidents. The fact that Armstrong is now 33, older than any of the Tour's elite five-time winners club were when they won their final Tours, makes his achievement all the more remarkable.
Unlike Eddy Merckx and other riders who won the race five times though, Armstrong focused all his energy on the Tour, and the Tour alone. It is only in the Armstrong era that the best stage racers in the world have elected to focus on the Tour, almost to the exclusion of all other events. Armstrong competed in a handful of races leading up to the 2005 Tour, but his victory in Saturday's time trial was his first individual victory of the year.
Armstrong's victory at the World Championship road race in 1993 seemed to indicate that he was destined to become a great champion of the one-day classics. He very well could have been. Instead he chose to focus on the Tour. Armstrong's critics acknowledge that he is a legend but say he is not the greatest rider ever because he has focused on the Tour to the exclusion of all other races.
It's a valid criticism, but professional cycling has changed since the Merckx era. The best riders now train to dominate in one specialized area of the sport. Armstrong chose the hardest event, the Tour de France, in the hardest discipline, stage racing. Long after the voices of Armstrong's critics fade his achievements will still tower above all others in cycling.

Book 6 will be shorter than the 5th book (or at least JK's 99% sure, but will not swear on her children's lives)
There will be no "new" nationalities of children at Hogwarts. Hogwarts is a British school, and JK says that adding foreigners for the sake of it is not in her plans.
During an interview, when JKR was asked in which Hogwarts room she'd like to be for 1 hour, she said it would be a room in which Harry has been before, but doesn't know its importance. Yet. (this could have happened in book 5, but we're unsure)
It's very important in the plot that Harry has his mother's eyes, and that her wand was very good for charms.
During an interview for Kids BBC, Victor Greensteet (reporter) asked Rowling if Harry would have a dragon for a pet. This is what she replied: "You can't tame a dragon, no matter what Hagrid thinks. It's simply impossible. So no. He has more common sense. He MAY have a different pet in the future, but for now, I won't say anything else". (This could have been buckbeak, but I'm sure we can expect more pets)
In the same interview for Kids BBC, the reporter asked J. K. if Harry had ever used the internet, and this is what she had to say: "No. They (the Dursleys) won't let him go near Dudley's computer, and Dudley is the only one who has a computer. They hit him if he gets too near to the keyboard. So the answer would be No. I use it a lot, but Harry doesn't. Wizards don't really need to go on the web. They have an even better way to find out what's happening in the outside world, which I think is a lot more fun than the Internet, but I'm going to keep quiet on this one."
The choice between what's right and what's easy will be a pillar of the plot in Harry's last 2 years at Hogwarts
Harry's parents' profession will be a big part of the plot.
Something HUGE will be revealed about Lily Potter. (Lesbian) haha
