I've started getting spam from this stupid thing because people are bombing the comments with malware links. I haven't really posted in half a year. The fire is pretty much gone. This place is useless, so I'm going to shut it down.

New Game, New Griefers

So, I've moved to WoW. When they say this thing is addictive, they don't lie. It's very easy to get hooked into the "One More Quest" Syndrome, and burn an entire day into nothing. However, with so many people competing for so few resources (in terms of crafting materials, quest targets, etc.) it's apparently quite the hobby to wait until someone is about to get one of these things and then steal it from them before they make it all the way.

I find it both fascinating and frustrating how much this reveals about the essential character of humanity. No matter who you are, or who you pretend to be, at the end of the day, you're just a selfish, petty animal like the rest of us.

I wish I could say I was disappointed, or shocked.

A New Hint For COD4 Players

Hey, everyone, I have a small hint for everyone who plays COD4. When you get on a map, and you notice that 5 of your 6 team mates are snipers, maybe consider switching classes. Snipers work best when you have team mates driving targets into their field of fire. This isn't possible when you have six people bunched up in a room all trying to shoot out of the same two windows.

Seriously, when did parents stop showing their children John Wayne movies? Because I swear no one has any idea of basic infantry tactics anymore. It doesn't require any special training, just two or more brain cells to rub together for some ideas.

One More Reason to Cancel Cable

NBC canceled Life. This was a great, character driven show. No, the crimes weren't particularly innovative or challenging, but the interaction amongst the main characters made the show a must-see every week. Just like Journeyman. I'm beginning to get annoyed. NBC gets me hooked on some great shows, and then cancels them. Not only that, but they are trading these shows out so we can see Jay Fucking Leno in primetime for 5 nights a week. What a brilliant fucking idea, NBC. Because that's exactly what we need more of, bland, banal, mediocre (at best) comedy from a washed up sell-out.

Not only that, but the fuckers are bringing Heroes back. They cancel Life, they cancel Chuck and give us five more hours of Jay Leno and more hamfisted melodrama and Comic Book Tropes from Tim Kring.

Looks like it's just time to go all Netflix. BSG is over, I can catch episodes of Burn Notice online, and I can do without the expense.

It almost makes you wonder if this was network TV's revenge all along. Cable nearly put them under, and now they are driving customers away from traditional pay TV services in droves. Why pay tons of money every month for crap you don't watch, when you can just queue up what you want, when you want it over the Intrawebz?

To Hell With DC

And by that, I mean, to hell with DC Comics.

They decided to kill Tim Drake and bring back Jason Todd.

The same Jason Todd that the fans voted to kill in the late 80's.

What the fuck is wrong with these people? I used to defend Dan Didio. I liked his willingness to shake stuff up. This isn't shaking stuff up. This is just stupid.

I was already going to pass on Nerd Prom this year. Now I just don't think I'm going to bother ever picking up a comic book ever again.

Dumb Fucks Are Everywhere

I overheard a conversation that almost broke my teeth.

I listened to one of the women here, a nice enough lady, go on a tirade about how the United States is a Christian Nation. My jaw locked, and my teeth started to grind under the strain. She mentioned how it was on all of our currency, and our legal system was based on the 10 Commandments. I felt the vein under my eye start to pound, and had to turn on music to get it to stop. Eventually, my jaw stopped hurting, but I'm not sure if that's because I stopped grinding, or the nerves in my teeth died from the pressure.

It wouldn't have been so bad if her audience had not given her their vapid agreement.

Seriously, there are times that I weep for the ignorance of the world. I would buy everyone a copy of the Federalist Papers, the Treaty Of Tripoli, and the collected letters of Thomas Jefferson.

But, then, I remember, the FUCKERS DON'T READ. Apparently.

General Malaise

I loathe technical issues, particularly when I have no power to repair them.

Stupid fucking smartcard login system failed today and kept me from doing anything productive for about an hour. So I'm going to have to stay an hour later to make up what should already be done.

I'm fortunate my teeth are so hard, or they would break.
