I can't trust myself to load up a movie with the conceit that i'll only watch it once i'm done with work. Now i'm just distracted and being way less productive because I just want to watch a movie.

(for the record, the movie is Seven Samurai and the work is a very special animation)

GIANT BOMB'S BIGGEST BILLY MAYS FAN

@bigjeffrey: Just trying to spread knowledge of the great man himself, Billy Mays. Never before had a man revolutionized television like the king of infomercial himself, Billy Mays.

I still remember the first time I saw his sweet bearded face, shining from the hazy crt TV nestled in the corner of my living room. Then I heard his voice - booming from the heavens, bringing such energy that I had never felt before. Literally glowing on that chilly Boston night, Billy Mays reached out and took my hand on a magical journey. I was not one to stumble blindly into a sale pitch. The poor kids on the block that attempted to harvest my organs for magazine subscriptions got nothing. I made the car salesman down the road my bitch as my stunning credit and haggling skills made him tremble in my presence. But I was no match for Billy Mays. Billy Mays was a god amognst men. I like to think that when he looked into the camera, he wasn't looking at some lens that was capturing light and focusing it onto a film - no, he was looking into my soul. He was grasping at the one thing I needed, the one thing that I could trust. For years I had been burned by humanity, but this man was here to save me. There was a great burden lifted from my shoulders that night. For so long I had tried to achieve my petty goals, crawling through the sodom that is life. But when I saw this man, floating in my mind's eye, I knew that I could never be as good as him. He was the best that ever would be. I was free from trying to be the best. I was content in who I was. I knew that I could never be Billy Mays, and that was fine. I achieved peace - and to this day live in the shadow of that great man. He was not perfect, but that was made him so great. He was a man who was mortal - not some divine image that would inevitably be shattered by the peccadillos all of humanity commit. All of the role models of America have been tarnished over time. Billy Mays will be my hero, my constant until I die. I only wish more would live life with the passion that Billy Mays did. I only try, I only try. RIP in peace Billy Mays.

I learned that you can bruise your hands and fingers, the hard way. I should have found this out in my childhood years with all the things I survived.

In Razors Edge for PS3, you cannot immediately charge a UT at the beginning of the Ayane day 2 bossfight against the 3 dark alchemists. They will jump back and immediately begin to charge their ranged attacks. This is opposed to the Wii U version, where they will engage you normally, even if you start by charging a UT.

I learned Medal of honor sucks and has the worst controller support of any modern shooter (even worse than battlefield 3), I learned Burnout Paradise kinda sucks and seems to require an EA account to even play it right. Just learned hotline miami is on sale for 2.49 on steam

I learned that my fiber subscription doesn't activate until September 16th instead of August 28th like I was first informed.

I also learned that Resident Evil 6 is still fucking boring 5 hours in.

Actually, I did learn something interesting today. Take a look of this picture of San Francisco from 1906. As you can see, much of it is a smoldering ruin. The blue circle highlights the area of the former location of Whiskey Media while the red circle highlights Giant Bomb's current location. What is now the CBSi building was then an empty charred pile of rubble.

Take from that what you will.

I just got off work where I do tech support all day. I re-learn each and every day I start my job and hear that little beep come over the headset when a call comes in that no matter how deep my hatred for the general public at large is it can always go deeper.

I also learned that Sobeys has frozen pizza's on sale today for $3.99 each. So I bought four of them.
