Halloween Survival Lessons...


I just thought I would do some fun lessons
to survive this halloween...(as if you were in your own horror flick)

1. When it appears that you have killed the monster,
*never* check to see if it's really dead.

2. If your companions suddenly begin to exhibit
uncharacteristic behavior such as hissing, fascination for blood,
glowing eyes, increasing hairiness, and so on,
get away from them as fast as possible.

3. Do not search the basement, especially if
the power has just gone out.

4. Beware of strangers bearing tools such as chainsaws,
staple guns, hedge trimmers, electric carving knives, combines,
lawnmowers, butane torches, soldering irons, band saws,
or any device made from deceased companions.

5. If appliances start operating by themselves, move out.

6. Stay away from certain geographical areas, some of which are listed here:
Amityville, Elm Street, Transylvania, the Bermuda Triangle,
Nilbog (you're in trouble if you recognize this one),
or any small town in Maine.

7. If your children speak to you in Latin or any other language
which they should not know or if they speak to you using a voice
which is other than their own, shoot them immediately.
It will save you a lot of grief in the long run.
NOTE: It will probably take several hundred rounds to kill them,
so be prepared!

8. If you're running from the monster,
expect to trip or fall at least twice,
more if you are of the female persuasion.
Also note that, despite the fact that you are running
and the monster is merely shambling along,
it's still moving fast enough to catch up with you.

9. When you have the benefit of numbers,
*never* pair off and go it alone.

10. Do not take *anything* from the dead.

11. As a general rule, don't ever solve puzzles
that open portals to Hell.

12. Don't fool with recombinant DNA technology
unless you're sure you know what you are doing.

13. Never stand in, on, above, below, beside,
or anywhere near a grave, tomb, crypt, mausoleum,
or other house of the dead.

14. Never read a book of demon summoning aloud, even as a joke!

15. Please don't use mystic Ouija boards on Oct. 31,
and after NEVER NEVER burn a Ouija board.

16. If your car runs out of gas at night, do not go to the nearby
deserted-looking house to phone for help.

17. If you're searching for something which caused a noise
and find out that it's just the cat,
*leave the room immediately* , if you value your life.

*and last but not least...

18. If you find a town which looks deserted, it's
probably for a reason. Take the hint and stay away!

Happy Halloween..MWA HA HA~

Waiting is sometimes best...

With the price tag that is attatched to the upcoming PS3,
(it's the Blu-Ray technology that makes it so idiotically expensive)
I am not willing to let go of my PS2 just yet.
I didn't buy the PS2 when it first came out, and my reward,
was a smaller and cheaper design that included the built-in drive
I needed to play online PS2 games.
I didn't buy a PSP right away, and got spared all the hacks
and abysmal library of PSP games,
until they came out with some better ones.
Also , the PSP is now getting a retooled design.
Too soon? You let me know.

Sony is introducing an upgraded version of the PSP in Japan before
the end of March 2007. It will not be the "PSP 2",
as Sony is taking a similar page out of Apple's iPod
strategy and upgrading the current PSP's specs while keeping
the retail price the same. -
Translation - what I pay for my PSP will be better than
what you paid for yours.

Also, as Apple does with each generational ipod model,
Sony will discontinue the current model of PSP
when the new model goes on sale. Sales of the handheld
are still going strong more than a year and a half since its
release in the USA. Perhaps a combo of strong sales
and plans for an enhanced version of the system have
prevented Sony from dropping the price
of the current PSP hardware.
Instead they introduced the PSP core pack
earlier this year which offered a lower-priced alternative
at the expense of the previously bundles accessories.

Anyway, perhaps if every gamer out there

did NOT buy on launch day,
Sony and other companies would start lowering prices,
instead of raising them over and over, since it seems
there are willing people who will pay whatever prices Sony
names just to have the latest things out there.

No, when the PS3 is finally released, I think once again,
I will err on the safe side, and wait.
I may be rewarded for my patience.

Return to Infinity and loneliness.

Well, I am semi-back from my hiatus that I was on while preparing for back surgery and recovering from it. I had suffered a ruptured disc that either was also pinching my sciatic nerve
or something else was pinching the nerve.
Either way, I had surgery and they cut away some bone to take out the HUGE ruptured disc, and to relieve the pinched nerve.
However, there are pain signals at the top of the nerve that sends
wave of pain down my leg and into my toes, where I only feel pain
in my left leg below my knee and in my toes.
My left foot is still pretty messed up.
So I am on pain meds till that nerve heals.
I have been told that nerves take a long time to heal,
so I can't sit at my computer as much as I used to which sucks.
I just decided to write again, even though I am a faceless drone
in the ever growing popularity of the net.
I am still not sure what I want my blog to be and it confuses me.
I love poker, gaming, electronics, I am passionate about many things.
Do I want to get personal with my blog?
Do I want to get political? Ugh, not really.
I just decided this blog is really for me, for my sanity,
to get my thoughts and feelings out there , as raw as they may be.
Yea, this will be here for anyone in the entire world to read,
but I really don't care. The great thing about the internet is that
we are exposed to many, but we can still be invisible and alone.
If there is anyone who reads this, I will try to write more often.
I can't promise daily because
I am still in quite a bit of pain from my surgery, but I can try every few days.
I missed writing. I like talking to people, discussing ideas
informing you of neat things I am interested in , you know.
Talk to you again soon.
