Check the sheer geeked out awesome fest that is the Cal Bears Marching Band running a Video Game themed half time show waaaaay back in the early 90s.
Love the Tetris shapes and Mario Montage.
Is World of Warcraft a harmless waste of time like crossword puzzles and masturbation, or is something far, far more terrifying, like demolition derbies and pick up games of “kick the cat?”
All I know is that everyone I know IRL who plays WoW is a giant waste of space. Without exception these mouth-breathing, knuckle dragging morons live in some kind of fantasy world to distract themselves from their mediocre, impoverished, socially-awkward existence. Want to forget about your job with the name tag and the hairnet? Level up in WoW. Want to forget about your receding hairline and piles of credit card debt? Just log on for some raids in WoW. Want to forget about that tight, tingly feeling in your stomach when you look at a woman? Log on to Laughing Skull, that will make real life seem better.
I have an idea, maybe your junior-college drop-out, no money for beer and too ugly for women lifestyle would change if you paid more attention to your real life quests than your fantasy mage in WoW.
Taking a shower regularly IRL? Consider that building up hygiene points. When you run out of shampoo you can “level up” to some designer stuff instead of the Generic Drug Store Hair Care you’ve been using since the late 90’s.
Working out 3 times a week? That goes on your strength card if its weight training and agility if you add some light cardio.
Talking to girls? That’s charisma, chum. So don’t take time out of the limited existence here on earth to go playing prolonged games of make believe.
In stead, live life in the real world, where almost all of the hot girls live.
It’s really worth the click and the read, but more than a few of the entries include real world shenanigans, like murder, IRL death (as a result of over-playing) and kidnapping.
My own most bizarre online incident involved marathon battle-tetris and some spilled Mountain Dew, but that is a tale for another day.
Share This Post (seriously, just click one of these damn buttons, already!)
– just went from science fiction to science fact. Check out this video from CNN that shows how the army of one just became the army of one super strong robotic killing machine.
I like the faceless robo-suits at 2:38. Although, I have to say, if I get to power a robotic exoskeleton and have super strength and super killing powers (and, I also assume, super love-making abilities) then I’m joining up in America’s Robot Army, pronto.
Apologies for the lack of writing and overabundance of videos, but I have been dreadfully caught up IRL.
Here is a video I caught over at Makezine
that shows two 7 foot Tesla Coils performing an electric duet of the Super Mario Brothers Anthem.
Apparently all the sound is genereated through the coils and there are no speakers to speak of.
Enjoy, you rotten heathens!
