Well, it seems my ISP is ran by Valve because that was the longest "2-3 weeks" of my life. But don't panic all you readers that are still here! I have some interesting articles of information I shall highlight below.
First of all apologies for the late reply, I've moved into a new place and I haven't got the net sorted out yet. I'm writing this from a library computer and until the net gets sorted, chances are there won't be an update. But on the good side, it should only be 2/3 weeks max.
This week I'll write about something that has always bothered me about the BBC2 series "Dragons Den". If you are a yank, I'm sure you've got an equivalent but to explain it to the general masses: A person goes to pitch their idea for an invention or gadget in front of four multi-millionaire business men/women. If their idea is good enough, they'll get their asking sum of money to buy a stake in the business. Sounds simple, but let us look at great inventions of the past, which would have never been invested in with what the person would probably outline in their pitch.
So here I was, happily enjoying Fresh Prince of Bel Air on my television when an advert for this came up:
Even on the advert it was pronounced RETARD-Ex
Who would honestly want to brush their teeth with something called retarDEX?! It's like the person who made it up dropped it into a office meeting as a joke and the boss replied back "This is an amazing name!" All while the yesmen just nod sheepishly while dieing a little inside.
As promised, every week I'll have an amusing Yahoo Answer to keep the merriment up and to increase my views.
Pamela Anderson's plastic surgeon trying to mince his words into a plea for help.
This week will be the promised weeks ago review of my Sennheiser HD-201's which finally came, a day after I made a note of it in my blog; Maybe some Royal Mail posty read what I put and decided to get into his truck with just that to ensure a speedy delivery to make me write positive things about his company. Fuck that.
While I was designing First Fantasy I took some time to play some old-school RPG's to give me a rounded idea of how it should play. Doing this only made me nostalgic with games from my childhood. Because everyone does SNES/NES lists, here is a short-list/micro review of my most favourite PS1 games from a time when Cynical Discourse was closer to Happy Chit-Chat and the internet composed of nothing more than Doom levels and Geocites.
This week I've discovered a goldmine. No, not one where I can use monkeys to harvest precious stones out of- But a comedy goldmine. One where people go for everything from relationship advice to anniversary gifts, this is Yahoo Answers.
