A few weeks back I was a couple payments late on my car. Each payment is about $250, but when I had the money together after paying all my other bills, my PS3 stopped working. Rather than making a payment on my car, I chose to buy a new PS3 so I could start playing Arkham City. My car was reposessed shortly after, and as a result I lost my job for continuosly showing up late (from taking the bus). However, I DID beat Arkham City.
When I was a kid, my mother would often punish me by taking my Sega Genesis controllers away. As I was unable to play, I would load up Mortal Kombat II and watch the start menu until a demo fight started. My brother and I would try and guess which character was going to win.
I recently came across my Gameboy Color with Pokemon Gold in the back. I started to play and got four badges in one sitting, then saved my game and went to bed. I wake up the next day to find that my game didn't save, so I started another new game and found the cartridge wasn't saving anything. I discovered that a battery in the cartridge was needed to save games and mine was dead. So I bought a new battery online and decided to fix it myself, but I didn't know how to solder (which was required to fix it). I taught myself to solder and fixed it up, and I now have beaten the Johto Elite 4 with my lvl. 81 Typhlosion. And with my new found soldering skills, I've also fixed 2 red ringed XBOX's.
When I was younger, I was often grounded from playing video games as a result of me doing bad in school. When I was about 12 years old, Super Smash Bros. Melee was released for the Nintendo Gamecube. Unfortunately, it came out while I was grounded. I really wanted to play, so I shut myself in my room and, whenever I could, I would sneak in some playtime. One day, my stepmother tried to open the door to find it was locked, so I shut off my Gamecube, opened the door and told her that I "had to pull up my pants." That's right I was willing to let my parents believe I was masturbating in my room rather than get caught playing video games on restriction. And this wasn't a one-time occurrence
I went so far as to make a custom "Keep Out"-style doorknob hanger to let them know that I was having "private time" which was really just me playing SSBM when I wasn't supposed to.
This week's "We're Really Trying To Not Run So Many Tattoo Pictures, But C'mon, This One's Just Too Good" Award goes to
I've seen a lot of people get the Triforce tattoo on them SOMEWHERE and everyone always complains "It's SUPPOSED to be on the back of the hand!" And I think "Yeah, we get it, it's supposed to be on the back of the hand, but it isn't constantly on display." Good luck trying to get a decent job with 3 Triangles on your hand UNLESS you do like I did and get a UV tattoo.
Before anyone starts complaining that "It's not on the left hand!" I argue "Link's is on the left hand because he's left handed (in most games), Ganondorf/Ganon's and Zelda's are on their right hand because they're right handed (also in most games). I'm right handed, therefore right handed tattoo that doesn't show unless in a blacklight. Also, the reason I got all 3 instead of picking just courage/wisdom/power, I really don't think any of those stands out in my personality more than the others.
