Well hey everyone, I decided I want to make this whole blog thing a weekly thing for me. I'll probably post one every week, but I'm not really sure exactly what day, just whenever I feel like it. Yeah I know I posted one about an hour ago, but that one was completely irrelevant to this.
I need to vent. There are a lot of things that are bugging me right now, and a few of them might stir up a debate or two. What could be a better place to vent than an internet forum where nobody gives a shit what everyone else thinks, right? It's the perfect place to get completely honest opinions, because no one here knows you, and no one here really gives a shit whether you live or die, because how would they know? These are in no particular order of what pisses me off the most, I'll just try to put the most interesting ones first since no one really reads the whole blog; they just read the first couple of paragraphs and get impatient and post their response without reading the rest.
- Videogame Piracy: Ok, this one really pisses me off- people obtaining illegal copies of games and playing them for free or for pennies. I've seen every excuse, and there is still no excuse for this. Yeah I admit to pirating music- when I was in 5th grade and Kazaa first came out(I think it came out in 2000, right?) and I didn't know any better. This whole thing was brand new at the time, and no one knew it was illegal.
You cannot call pirating games "convenient". With all the trouble I've seen yall go through, and the hours and hours it takes yall to download games through these
"torrents", you could have probably WALKED to the nearest store and bought it. Another excuse I hear a lot of is, "I wanted to try it and make sure I like it before I buy
it, if I like it I go out and buy it". Have you heard of fucking Blockbuster? GameFly? Yeah we're all upset that there aren't many companies making demos anymore,
but seriously, do you really expect me to believe you'll go out and buy a game you already pirated? I'm calling bullshit on this. And now here comes the big excuse:
"I can't afford it". You can't afford to spend $50-$60 on a game, but you can afford a $300 console, or a $1,500 PC? Or did mommy and daddy buy these for you? Get a fucking job. You can get a job at 15, or you can do what I did, mow lawns for the neighbors.
Or did you forget to preorder it, and now you have to wait for the new hit game to get another shipment? So instead of rewarding the company for making such an awesome game, you just ripped them off. You think it's nothing, but it adds up. Here's how it goes.
You pirate a game by downloading it off the internet using bittorent. It's the same thing as if you walked into GameStop, grabbed it off the shelf, and walked out. You have a hard copy of the game after you burn it on your DVD Burner. You can get the manual and cover online. You probably spent less than a dollar on the game after buying the DVD cases, and the blank DVD. The companies lose money, the store loses money, and our government loses money. This means the company has a smaller budget for its next big hit, the store has to raise the prices, and the taxpayers have to pay for the money you didn't spend. Yeah one game won't do anything, but its the thousands of you doing it that adds up.
So if you pirate games, fuck you. I honestly hope the government comes to your house and arrests you and takes you to jail. I will gladly pay for that in my taxes that I actually pay.
- Europeans hating on America: "Stupid, fat Americans". Ok Europeans. If it wasn't for America, you would be controlled by a Nazi supreme government started by Hitler. You would definitely not have this amazing technology the way it is today. The Internet probably wouldn't exist, the Soviet Union would still be intact since it wouldn't spend so much it economically collapsed. God knows how many Communist nations USSR would've conquered without a power like America to rival them. Hell, cars wouldn't even exist the way they are today. It would've taken a while for someone to start the production line that Henry Ford did.
But back to the present. What would you watch on TV? I've seen BBC, and Planet Earth/Blue Planet would get old after a while. Computers would suck, probably still
be preMS-DOS. You should be thanking us, not insulting us. Even if you were to stop Germany, you'd probably still be run by a Dictator since Democracy would not
have been proven to work. And the reason yall hate our Right to Bear Arms? Because it's the only reason we defeated you in the Revolution and survived the War of
1812. Imagine how different it would've been if yall had guns in every household during World War II. You probably could have fought off the Nazis instead of having
your whole continent lay in ruins. That's why no one can beat us on our home turf, and it's why the Soviet Union couldn't conquer Afghanistan. We're ready for it all
the time. Oh yeah, and who do you think gave yall the money
to rebuild after WWII? USA.
We thank yall for your support, and we don't hate Europeans. We think you're all goofy as hell, but in a good way; like a "I wanna get drunk with them" kinda way. Yall are the reason for our existence, and we're the reason for your existence, so why do you hate us? Everyone does something stupid, but this is America. We are the ones that broadcast globally, not you. We love comedy, so when someone does something so stupid its funny, we broadcast it. Yeah we have a lot of fat fucks in our country because convenience has become essential in our daily lives. Now we're becoming more involved with health and exercise, and the environment. Its mostly the Baby Boomers that are fat as hell. Our generation(at least at my college) is pretty fit compared to the Boomers, and we're more into fitness.
By the way, don't insult American politics. You don't know what you're talking about.
- Fat girls that think they're hot because they have big boobs: We've all dealt with it. We're talking on the phone to our female friend that's pretty hot(lets call her Kristen), and she gives the phone to her friend that we've never met(let's call her Mandy). We ask Mandy what she looks like, and she says, "I'm 5'2, blonde, and I have bigger boobs than Kristen". We get excited! Petite, blonde AND busty! Then Kristen invites her to hang out with the 3 of you, and we end up vomiting in our mouth at our first glance at this fat cow.
Of course she has big boobs! She's so fat that her body stopped storing fat in the belly/thighs, and resorted to storing it in her chest since it ran out of room
everywhere else! Plus she's short, so she looks like a giant bowling ball! Then we have to be nice since she's our hot friend's friend, and we don't want to ruin things
with Kristen. So Mandy thinks you're flirting with her since you're being nice to her and she's never had a guy pay that much attention to her. So we get a call from the
fat whale the 3 days later, and she asks us why we haven't kept in touch. We have to be nice, so it leads to even more shit with a clueless fat girl who thinks you want
her. It's a lose/lost situation.
I have more but maybe I'll post those another time. I'm feeling a lot calmer now, plus this one's pretty long and I'm getting tired of typing, and I have a class in 30 minutes so I need to shower for the day and get ready. If you read the whole thing, you're cool as shit.
PS: Sorry for typing 'yall' so much. This was me letting out some steam, and I was typing like I would speak it. So it's not exactly perfect English.
