Evening Reading

So after reading Nick's amusing thoughts on a number of user-created TF2 maps, I'm starting to worry he actually gets a kick out of doing horrible things to himself.

Not sure what to do about that, but hey, at least there are some funny news stories floating around.

Meanwhile, a glimpse of what happened in the world of video games today: Lastly, now that I'm registered with the Shack group on GameWith.Us, I'm afraid I'll spend even more time playing Super Smash Bros. Brawl. Please be nice!

    What are you going to do this weekend? I'm planning to go out and see some stand-up comedy. Anyone fan of these?

    Ordered a Powerball (gyroscope) today. Never tried one so I'm kind of interested in seeing how is it like.

        Dude, adult diapers are a part of your weekend? I guess if you are sick while riding on a bike trail, I'd wear them too.

      The powerballs are awesome! But prepare for a small learning curve to get it really going, and then some extreeeem forearm burn!

        Any tips?

          Mostly it's a timing thing...you have to start out really slowly and build the momentum with small rotations initially. Getting it started is probably the hardest part. After some practice though you'll be able to build up some serious force and your forearm strength will start to increase. They're awesome fun by the way...enjoy!

          Use your thumb, not the cheesy string they give you. It works amazingly well. Every time carpal tunnel flares up I do that for a few days and it goes away.

      Get my car's AC fixed finally in Huntington Beach, stay at my brother's place and get royally fucked up all weekend including St. Patrick's day. Don't think I'll do Irish Car Bombs though because I'm not a chugger and I'll probably puke if that shit curdles in my mouth.
