Is it just me?

I think that random image block keep showing me scary photos.

Oh and another scary thing, I saw 40-50, 14-16 year olds running wild on a subway platform while 2-3 of them duked it out. The amount of yelling and motion they created was breathtaking. It was like a riot.

H’ok

So you know those end of the world guys? Well they’re a lot richer now. (Thanks to MacHall for pointing that out.)

The only think I don’t get about that shirt is why when your hot you don’t want sweat. I always thought it’s evaporating kept you cool, maybe this wisking away property of the shirt has the same effect. *shrug*

In other news, The New York Times says Brooklyn students are loose, while Manhattan kids want to die (of jealousy of course), and Staten Island kids do a lot of drugs (what else is there in Richmond county?). I’m not surprised about that drug problem.

HL2

A long long time ago there was this boy named Francis who purchased an ATI Radeon 9600 with 128MB of ram. Francis was happy. One day after beating “Max Payne 2: The Fall of Max Payne” (which ran wonderfully on his new card) he went trifling through the box his card came in. He found a card, one claiming to provide a free copy of “Half Life 2”.

“What’s Half Life?” Francis asked. He recalled his friend Andrew speaking of it years ago, he said good thing. So Francis tried out this Steam thing and downloaded “Half Life”. And it was good.

But “Half Life 2” wasn’t released, it was far from it, 8 months from it, although he didn’t know that, nobody knew that. As far as he knew it was years off.

As time went on Francis forgot all about the offer, he was content with Half Life and its expansions, it was a lot of fun, a good story (told from multiple viewpoints) and quite satisfying.

So today it was announced that “Half Life 2” has gone gold and will ship November 16th. Francis decided that it was a good time to purchase this game, as with Steam he could play it after it’s released, instantly. So he goes to buy it and reads the words “You already own this package.” His draw dropped.

That ATI Half Life coupon was worth $50 dollars or a single copy of “Half Life 2”.

Got it? November 16th is Francis’s day off, his phones will be disconnected and he will be busy.

What’s Fonzie? He’s cool, you cool? Be like Fonzie.

Stupid locks

So… I like picking locks.

It’s come in handy tones of times while working and playing. I’ve never picked a lock I wasn’t allowed to ;-)

Anyway, you’ve probably heard about the picking tubular locks with a pen. Well.. I’ve done it too now. Stupid useless laptop lock.

Check out this movie and this movie for examples.

Robots

So I’ve been talking about being a robot for halloween. And I’m still with it.

I can go a generic robot, like from the video. I can even protest. But this morning I had a thought that I should go as one of the these 3 below.

Bender

The RED ROBOT or Clango

Now I like the RED ROBOT a lot, but Clango is adorable. But even better, Bender likes to drink a lot of beer and has this hatch thing going on.

It’s a tough call.

I’m red?

Yea I hate these too, blame Brian.

You are the color red. You are the most
controversial of all the colors. You are often
easily angered, but as easily as you got
excited, you come down. When angered, do you
have the tendency to be malicious? Afterwards,
do you end up begging for forgiveness? Maybe.
But you’re incredibly generous, and, odd
enough, needy. You love to hate, and
sometimes, you hate to love. This color
describes you as generally edgy. When in a bad
situation, you’re pessimistic, and when you’re
in a good situation, you’re extremely
optimistic. You’re painfully tempermental, and
sometimes it hurts the ones you love. But with
an exciting and stimulating attitude, you enjoy
talking to people and being social. But aside
from your bold and outgoing attitude, you’re
attention-needing and attention-getting. This
color is associated with lust and desire–and
you are both lust and desirous. You’re a
protective person when it comes to the people
you love. You’re incredibly sharp-witted and
powerful (not to mention intelligent!).

What color are you? (Amazingly detailed & accurate–with pics!)
