Channel Clicking

Posted on July 13th, 2014 - No Comments »

Imagine this:

A police officer is running through a burning building slowly losing his grip over a Glock 17 as someone is running away when suddenly a car is speeding around following a train and then all of a sudden someone is cooking – that is what channel surfing is like and it is very, VERY annoying.

Now I can understand if you are watching TV and a ads start appearing and you flick over to other channels while you wait for the show to come back on, but why do people and I know a lot of them that does this, watch something until the break then switch to something else and once that hits a break to then switch to something else while not actually finish watching anything. To me that is just being lazy or there is nothing actually worth while watching and you would likely be better off just turning the TV off.

The kid under the bus goes round and round

You will need to click the article title to be able to see the embedded content.

As some of you likely know (more so if you are parents but I do know many teenagers do read this website) it is half-term for a lot of places in this country and I only figured that out when I was sitting on a public bus and it was … relaxing and quiet (as quiet as an old bus can go anyway) and it got me thinking of something I wanted to write about ages ago.

If you are as unlucky as me you might live in a place that has very little public transport at all and if this is the case you will know what I am on about, if not then imagine living in a place where if you wanted to go somewhere without your own transport you have to rely on public transport that only exist to transport children to school (even if the council claims otherwise, they would cancel it in a heart beat if they could). As you might be able to imagine these buses would have to pick up a lot of people as to be anywhere worth while running they would need to pick a lot of people up. So now imagine a bus full of people and now imagine the same amount of children all having to fit on one bus where they is clearly not enough room.

A Donation in Your Name

Posted on December 24th, 2013 - No Comments »

Ah, Christmas. The time where Christians rejoices about the birth of their messiah, others happy about no work or whatever but Christmas is also the time for giving and to some it seems they ain’t even trying. Before I go on this rant is not an insult to charities and most charities (mostly local ones) do a good job where Governments have failed.

I have seen lately more and more people have been “giving” a gift which is simply a “donation in your name” which is exactly as it says – someone donates money to a cause that you believe in (or worst, they believe in) and then have the nerve to claim they given YOU a gift when all they have done is given money to a charity of their choice to make them feel happy. Now do not get me wrong as there are many charities that does excellent work but not many really knows what you value and unless they said in advance or did a hell of a lot of research on you, that “gift” they sent you ends up being something they value and not you.

Can you use cure, mummy?

Posted on September 15th, 2013 - 4 Comments »

With Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn being released just a short while ago, I have some what got back into playing a massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) on a casual scale and as per normal I pick a healer as I prefer them over the others (a summoning / pet class comes when I want to be a damage dealer when I do not want to have to think much).

After playing the first few dungeons with having no problems at all with having nice friendly community and then building up a few in-game friends, I tend started to drift the mid end dungeons and what I learnt their reminded me of Final Fantasy XI and other MMO’s all over again – that the healer does indeed seem to act as the “mother” of the group.

The Amber Light

Posted on June 30th, 2013 - 4 Comments »

I have recorded what happened in this rant. I will upload it this week and will embed the video at the bottom.

For those that knows me well will know that I hate random lights on when I am trying to sleep and this is the tale of the motherboard that refused to turn off.

For the last few weeks I have been upgrading my PC and although it is not yet done (still need to get more RAM, new I/O panel and what not) the computer itself turns on and works fine although it a very loud device (the I/O panel has a temperature sensor on it to fix this).

Do Not Type Like This

Posted on April 22nd, 2013 - 2 Comments »

So I Randomly Got Sent A Message Over MSN That Was Meant To Close And Stop Working Over A Week Ago When We Started Typing Like This And Fuck It Is Annoying To Read, Slow To Type And Overall A Pointless Exercise To Even Bother With As My Friend Would Put It.

I Am Sure You Have Seen Online On Some Forum Or Blog With People Doing This But I Do Not Get Why. Are People Just That Lazy (well Actually It Took Me More Effort To Do This Than To Type Normally) Or Are They Germans Learning English And Do Not Understand We Don’t Need To Capitalise Nouns?

Alcohol ≠ Fun

Posted on March 27th, 2013 - 2 Comments »

You can have fun and not be drunk

There is a common disbelief that someone must be drinking alcohol to be a fun person to hang out with and if someone does not like alcohol then there is something wrong with them … even though the same people who say that never originally liked alcohol which comes to the question why?

Well I can answer that one easily. First most people will claim that alcohol is an acquired taste and thus keep saying you must keep drinking it before you will enjoy it. Well why most people are like this is simple – they was “forced” by the power of peer pressure to do so believing the best way to have fun is simply just to keep drinking.

Political Correctness has made us racist

Posted on February 17th, 2013 - No Comments »

I am sure everyone has heard of the term “political correctness” but if you have not it is basically a term used for all the bullshit people say you must do when really no really gives a shit. I am sure you have noticed in the media you will always hear people call a “different coloured” skin person a “African American” although the person may actually have been born in Europe but hey, political correctness means we must apply a Government approved label to everyone.

So while we have our African-American what do you think we call “white coloured people” these days?
