When I was your age

This is what I always here, from parents, uncles, grandparents and so on. All of the stories are about how hard life was, how they didn't have technology. The list of things they didn't have includes any technologic advancement since 1960.

Why do they have to make a point about what they didn't have and how they have it now but have no idea how to use it? I don't understand how it holds any relevance to the current topic, I was talking about Football not about how hard it it to press the 'on' button for your stupid 10 year old hunk of crap.

In saying so I guess I can't complain, i'll be doing the exact same thing when I'm older.

"When I was your age I was the leader of a guild in the glorious World of Warcraft. What's a World of Warcraft you ask? Well it was an alternate reality when I was younger. Many people from around the world banded together to stop the evil forces of Azeroth from coming into our world via the internet. It went on to be called the great war of 2012"

You and I both know this not to be true however they're going to be young, they'll believe any amount of shit I spurt out from my old face. I'll also tell them we used to be able to fly but because their generation has recessive genes we lost that ability.

Why are they Firefighters?

So I'm sitting here in the hot weather, on the couch, watching 'Disaster Eyewitnesses' a show on Foxtel Fox8. They're going over when the Minnesota bridge collapsed. 13 people died, madness is everywhere.

It went over how many people started to call '911' to report the emergency then went to a Firefighter who received the emergency to go to the bridge that collapsed.

He told us how he turned to his fellow Firefighters saying "A bridge collapsing? That's gotta be a drill, don't worry guys it's just a drill"

It wasn't a drill kind Firefighting sir, it was a real fucking disaster. Maybe you should be a bit more professional at your job so people don't fucking die.

Is this what every emergency service worker thinks in America? "Errr shit, we've got work to do!" "NAH MAN IT'S JUST A DRILL, CALM DOWN"

Ok so it's not that big of a deal, they would most probably treat the drill just like a normal emergency. So why am I ranting? BECAUSE I CAN.


So, I attended the 12:01 am screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. Myself and my Girlfriend arrived at 10:30 pm expecting a long line of spell casters only to be amazed that we were the only ones there. Eventually a lot more people turned up and the movie actually started really close to the promised time.

Now, if you're a Harry Potter fan you will definitely love this however you should feel a bit annoyed that all of the most excellent events happen in the second half of the Deathly Hallows 2 parter. I was quite unhappy with how long I'll have to wait to see sexy Voldemort again. I'll always have google images I guess.

When will it be my turn...

... To start a religion!?

At the moment there are many religions around, most of which are full of crap. I'm not a religious person, I find it dumb to be honest. However this isn't a rant post, this is a post of how I will create my own Religion!

I'm going to call it "Avatarism" based off of the show of "Avatar: The Last Airbender" (Not to be confused with the blue kittehs of pandora).

My religion will consist of a single book, which many other books will be based off, depicting how many many years ago all of us were one nation split up into many types of people; Air benders, Earth benders, Water benders and Fire benders. Each of our fine people have their on land to which they're entitled to own. Peace is kept between all of the people in the form of the 'Avatar' a one person who knows all of the elemental bending. As the years went on and on the lands split up and we as a people became unknown to each other, we found no need for the Avatar as we had no need to fight. The Avatar, eventually, become unknown to everyone however he is still there attempting to keep peace.

All of the major wars in the world weren't won by people but won by the Avatar eventually stepping in to end the time of fighting!

Everyone should renounce their religions and join mine, i'll teach you how to bend elements and stuff.

P.S. This is totally legit, don't be idiots. Join Me.

Who needs them?

Well, I post today to rant about my Family. Not many people enjoy the company of my family and yet my parents insist that we spend time with them. Most of the time I reside in my room or in front of the TV playing Guitar Hero while they're around because I can't bear to be in their presence and I sure hope they realise this. Teen Angst you say? No, my family are just dumb. Really dumb and I feel that being near them their dumb will rub off on me and I don't want to risk it. [/rant]

Ok so onto a better topic. As of late a movie called 'The Social Network' came out (I do advise everyone to go watch it, it's a brilliant depiction of the events prior to the release of Facebook. Hilarious movie and very entertaining) and one of my best friends saw it. Now this inspired him to want to write a program and make lot's of money. He has no previous programming experience and I being the only one of his friends who attempted programming (ATTEMPTED, it was boring as fuck so I gave up) he comes to me and starts asking me questions, asking me to go to university with him and so on. So, me being a kind person I pointed out that he has the mindset of a toddler who sees a fireman and wants to be a fireman then sees a police officer and then wants to be a police officer. He rages about how he's  been wanting to write a program for years and blah blah blah. Surprising that it took a movie for his many years of wanting to do something for it to bubble to the surface and make him do it. Anyway because I don't want him to fail I brought out my old programming books and have slowly (And boringly) been teaching myself programming again. I started that about a week ago, offered him the software and the books but he still hasn't come to get them. He has about as much motivation as a rock.

Well, I was unfortunate enough to be dragged along to this movie by a couple of friends. I hadn't previously thought this was going to be any good so my expectations were rather low. The beginning was good, getting right into it but then it had to do the shitty 30 minutes of character building prelude (15 hours earlier!) which made me feel nothing for the characters. The plot made no sense at all, it was all just thrown at you so you could think of why and how yourself. The only military action taken against said Aliens failed miserably and then they still tried to push on which is a good idea when a nuke fails to bring down a ship. The only redeeming part of this movie was
Scottie Thompson's character who was the only one willing to do anything logical that would lead to survival. I have already sent her an invitation to join my Zombie apocalypse team when that finally rolls over.

Brb, Star Trekking. Preferably across the Universe...

As the name suggests. FUCK YOU ALL, I'M NOW UNIVERSE

On to a better topic, I just started watching Star Trek: The Original Series. I haven't seen anything Star Trek (Except for that 2009 movie that my friend made me go watch) so my expectations aren't really high however so far this seems like quite a good show and I'm glad my interest in it made me begin to watch it. For a series that was created back in 1959 it is really impressive.


If I were to beam down to a planet I definitely wouldn't go anywhere near blue plants. The plants could release some sort of toxin or poison and then I would be rendered useless to my group thus allowing them to feast on my innards if there wasn't any food and that's just terrible. I also wouldn't trust anyone bar the group I beamed down with, for all I know they're all disgusting alien creatures who are just wanting to feast on my hair because they can't digest flesh.

By the looks of this, Cpt. Kirk is about to hook up with some sexy alien bab- OH JESUS SHE DISAPPEARED AND NOW THESE BIG BRAIN ALIENS ARE TAKING HIM AWAY. WHAT THE HELL?!

Anyway, Good to be back and posting. I hope everyones doing well.
