My girlfriend has been dragging me to Yoga for the last two weeks. At the end of every class, we have to meditate and we're told to focus our energy into something that we want to come true. I continue to try to create the Spirit Bomb. I'm hoping it comes true next week so I don't have to go to yoga anymore.-Kyle K.
I had to go out of town on business for a week immediately after getting Fallout: New Vegas. Naturally, I packed my PS3 and RCA cables. I expected to be able to play on whatever shitty TV they had in the hotel room. Well, the TV didn't have any inputs at all. My PS3 was useless. The first thing I did, even before unpacking my clothes, was to go online and order an unreasonably expensive adapter that converts RCA to USB so I could plug the PS3 into my company issued laptop. I paid for it, as well as overnight shipping, on the company credit card. Upon my return I had to explain the expense and the unapproved software on the laptop. In retrospect, I could have covered my tracks better, but I think the residents of New Vegas appreciated it in the end.-Anonymous
In 8th grade, I got in a fight with a kid because he said he beat Battletoads without using Game Genie. I've GOTTEN passed the Turbo Tunnel. I know that it does not get any easier. That kid will forever be a liar in my mind.-Anonymous
When my girlfriend found out she was pregnant, I was excited to name our future son. Being an unwed couple and long-time fans of A Song of Ice and Fire, we decided we would name him Jon Snow. We got married two months ago, Jon Snow no longer seemed appropriate. Last week Robert Stark was born weighing in at 9 lbs 6 ounces. I'm getting him a husky puppy as soon as he can walk.-Patrick
I've been rather successful at getting my girlfriend interested in my hobbies. After some work, I finally got her to try WoW. She loves it. The problem is that she's a complete nub. I have to spend an exorbitant amount of time teaching her how to play. This involves lots of patience and frustration. I frequently have to explain things multiple times that I didn't think needed an explanation at all. She won't quit, though. She's really into it, even though she's terrible. Now I have to find excuses why I can't play with her and hide my battle.net status so I can play without her.-JJ
One day in English class, I got bored and decided to make an Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion build in my notebook. My teacher caught on that I wasn't taking notes. She asked for my notebook. She looked at the page, which was filled with three-letter abbreviations, scattered numbers and simple addition, for about a minute. Then she gave me a confused look, returned the notebook and went back to teaching.-John S.
I spent a semester studying abroad in Ireland. When we all went home around Thanksgiving, some of the group planned to backpack around Europe through mid-December. I would've gone, but Super Smash Bros. Brawl was supposed to come out on December 8. I didn't want to wait any longer to play it. Then it was delayed anyway.-Brian
I was thrilled when my son announced that he wanted a Star Wars-themed party for his 6th birthday. The real hit of the party was the light sabers. I made them from pool noodles and duct tape. Each one had a completely different handle. Needless to say, the kids spent the entire time beating the crap out of each other. It was great. At the end of the party, they each received a fancy certificate saying that they had graduated the Jedi Academy as a Jedi Knight.-Hailey
