Alcohol ≠ Fun

Surprise! You can have fun and not be drunk

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.

Sempre provare ancora e ancora

Many years ago now I remember a time where I used to hate anything that looks, felt, smelt or even sounded like a vegetable and would go out of my way not to actually eat them. Just the sight of them used to make me feel nausea and this stayed with me for ages. However I remember this one day I went out to an Italian cafe which was ran by an Italian family.

... no thanks

… no thanks

Now I am sure you heard of the stereotype of their mothers and I would be lying if the mother and owner of the cafe was not the same. So I ordered myself a pizza with chips (yes, I know it is a vegetable) and the owner just smiled and said – sure thing sweetie. So after a short while, I noticed it actually took some time to make and cook the pizza but that was alright, I was not in a hurry when I noticed something – everyone had vegetables on their plate.

Part 1: How to do a Let’s Play

Okay so you have seen a series like Playing Games with Snat and maybe you have thought – I would love to do one of these myself and have looked up and seen there is millions of ways to do it. Well you are in a bit of luck as due to me not having anything to speak about, I decided to talk about how I got around the problems I had.

I should note that I went down a hardware route as I do console games but I do also use the same setup for PC games in the future. This guide will assume you have nothing so far, not even a PC, but relax as I will even explain that. I will also note the price for it all but it may not exactly be cheap but where possible, I will link to cheaper or free places.

Spare me a quid, gov ?

While I have always moaned about public transport in the past, there are times I have needed to use them for whatever purpose it was. Anyhow this story is not another bus one but rather what happened at the bus stop.

First, we need to put a picture into your mind and what better way than using crappy paint drawings.

Demonic Snat

So in your mind you should now be thinking of a demonic looking me and while I may have not looked like that physically, it is at least how I must have looked to the random people who walked by.

So I was in my local town for what I was recalling for shopping purposes when I finally got to the bus stop around half an hour before the bus should officially come. Having missing out of a pound coin for the bus, I asked a friend who was there if he had a spare pound coin or else I would have to go to the bank and withdraw. Thankfully he did and he passed it over and I put it into my left coat pocket.

Wait, protect those batteries

It will not come to a shock to anybody reading this website that most stores no matter where they sell always rely on up selling to make extra profit. Everyone has their own view points on this but my issue is how far some companies will go just to make that little extra …

When I was out in town shopping around for a new laptop it came to my attention that I will need to buy some new batteries. Seeing I was already in a store, I looked around to see if there was any cheap batteries and to my surprise there was.
