I get so much awful junk mail that I didn't see the notification that my Oculus Rift had arrived 2 days ago and I could have been playing with it since Monday.
And now it's too late in the evening to pick up packages from the apartment management office. D:

Man vs train. What will happen.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)
I was expecting a video of someone punching a train.
Sorry. I'll get on that soon.

Holy crap, why did I not start watching One Punch Man earlier? This is the best thing.
probably figured an autobiography wouldn't be interesting

You know that thing in movies where they run their thumb along the edge of a knife to check how sharp it it?
Don't actually do that.

I'm not even sure how that much blood can come out of a single digit but apparently it can.
i was going to say you did it wrong if you actually cut yourself but then i noticed you said run along in which case yeah you did a stupid thing. But you can safely test by just pressing to your finger without and slicing motion just start with little pressure and apply a bit more after its on there.

My mother is angry that my friend and his step-father are looking at my computer to see if they can find what is wrong.

Apparently she thinks that they will sabotage my (already broken) computer and charge me hundreds of dollars for repairs that they will not perform.

Without my desktop I am incredibly bored. The TV down here doesn't work and my laptop can't do squat.

Exactly!

See Tumblr. Hours of fun.



WHY IS THE LAST OF US SO LOUD. I have no headphones and my brother has my mom's ps3 for a bit to play it. It's /so loud/. It may be the TV, but considering the aforementioned headphone problem, it's a bit hard to listen to my game :c

Moved into the living room so I can happily tf2 in peace. Only complaining now because I don't like joke posts when I have something to rage about.
Errr... Unless your TV only has a single volume setting, you could just ask your brother to turn it down.
Ah, but you see, Ice's brother is an ASSHOLE.

Does she ever ask you to help with her computer?

If so, perhaps you could sabatoge it yourself(Put a bat file designed to feign a terrible thing without doing anything) and have a little fun as she panics.

Of course, I don't say you should if you know your mother would get... Angry but it's always a fun thought.

Not an asshole per se, but it's more of the annoying brother. He can be nice at times :3

last night i was walking along and the person to my left suddenly started moving his wheelchair towards me so i jumped right and forward so i would not get hit and my god dam mother got angry at me for walking in front of him.

He was stationary when i first started walking should i have waited for him to go past me no because that would be stupid how could i know how long he would sit there for.

Sometimes. But her computer is not good anyways. Why sabotage something that is already on its way out? The thing is even slower than my laptop.

It did fail once, but that just turned out to be because there was so much dust inside that the fans could no longer function. A quick cleaning and it worked fine again. As fine as a Vista with very low end components, even for its time, can be, anyways.

Your mother. Seriously. It's a shame mental asylums have so much stricter entry requirements these days.

Hard science is like a sword, and soft science is like fear. You can use both to equally powerful results, but even if your opponent disbelieve your stabs, they will still die.

I say skip the bat file and just put a live bat in her case. Then say she must have got it from a suspicious website, she should be more careful.

  • WHERE'S YOUR MOTIVATION!!?
    • View Profile

I hear you, man. Too often I'm too tired to say anything when I see people being dickheads. And I'm trapped between the realization that my failure to object contributes to the problem, and the knowledge that I can't care about everything, and there's a finite amount of shit I can motivate myself to speak up about in a day. So my options wind up being "Keep quiet and let things fester" and "Say something, but nothing meaningful or helpful, making myself just another dickhead contributing to the fight".

(crossposting due to topic)

It's been going through my head too. Not quite 'build a bunker and tell everyone to fuck off" but just heading out into the wilderness, probably to die at some point. I'm not suicidal but I'm increasingly looking around at my countrymen going ".....You're making this a world I don't want to live in." And I don't mean in the sarcastic meme. I mean I literally don't want to partake in a society that's got its head this far up its ass, and has this much impact on the world around it.

And it's not just the guns. It's the last 14 years of this country's mindset that I just can't take anymore. Everyone, even people trying to stay on the sidelines, are getting so wound up they want to snap too. No, it's probably not unique in history of American life experience. I'm sure living through the Civil War was like 8x as fucked. But for MY personal experience, shit is at an all time low for my country and I'm sick of the fighting, the continued upping of the political ante by common people who have lost sight of what's rational or appropriate. And although it's the cowards way out, the idea of of packing as much survival gear as I can and heading North, and not having to put up with the ever present cyclical madness of American society is seeming increasingly appealing. I used to think "Shit's bad but living in the woods like a trapper? Can't see it." Now, yeah, I get it. I really do. Just take yourself out of the scene entirely, to where you can't even hear the stupid shit your own people are saying and doing.

In the end this is all gutless whining, because I don't honestly hate my country enough to pack it all up and go somewhere else. But goddamnit, I used to be the person that was like "Hey, deep down inside we're all still the same people, essentially value the same stuff...." I can't even say that with a straight face anymore. Because some Americans have just gone off the fucking deep end completely, and I swear they'd let it all burn as long as they were the ones sitting on top of the pile of bodies.

In other news, Omaha Nebraska, about 40 minutes from me, has earned the dubious honor of being the first and only city where a cameraman for COPS has been shot and killed. Yeah, that's right. COPS has been going on for how long, and no cameraman was shot, let alone killed? It didn't happen in LA. Didn't happen in New York. Didn't happen in Chicago, Atlanta, Dallas, Denver or any place like that. No, Omaha Nebraska. He died in the hospital today.

WOOO NEBRASKA #1 WOOO. Between that and the Bullets and Burgers fucking stupidity, it's been quite a day for shootings.
