I Might Need to do One of These Now, With a New Site and All...

BLOG TIME!!!

Sup Duders! Another blog, another day...or month[s]. It has been an interesting few months, I still haven't platinumed Skyrim, as I was planning, but I did pre-order Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, so that was a good start. Fifa went pretty well for a while, until I found out that I'm completely horrible at it. I got also got PS+, and it's probably one of the best things I've gotten (besides Ni No Kuni, that's probably one of my favorite games, along with Valkyria Chronicles). While people are really complaining about plus (see PSBlog), saying that Europe gets better deals, which it might, I have a hard time recongnizing why people don't see that it's not really easy to give out games for free. But I completely understand their compliants...anyway, I need to go to sleep now, I've got school tomorrow, and I should probably stop now before a rant about school starts.

More Games!

I finally got around to playing inFamous, and it's really, really good. This game should only take me 2wks-1 month to finish (I only play on weekends), so after that, I'm probably going to get the Journey Collection, because I haven't played Journey yet, it's a physical copy, it comes with 3 mini-games, I believe it has the soundtrack, and because it comes with a voucher for one month of PS+, which I really want to try out, also because I get to play inFamous 2 (and a bunch of other stuff), which is a great bonus; hopefully, the month trial will convince me to buy a year of membership. That's it for my rant today....I guess.

What to do With This Laptop???

so, the school has some laptops that are around 12 years old just sitting in some cabinets, and my physics teacher decided today that he didn't want to see them anymore, so he pulled out 7 or 8 of them, and just gave them to anyone who wanted them. I took one (it was free, so I thought why not), but i dont exactly know what to do with it

this is the brick....An old Toshiba Tecra 8100, Intel Pentium and Microsoft 2000 inside (it's so powerful!)

I'm thinking of updating the parts, but i dont know how to go about doing that (or if i can do that), so........

Any ideas about how to get started?

School...

So, school is about to start, and this year just might be the first year where I actually feel overwhelmed by the work (or so they say). I still haven't finished my AP US history homework, and I dont want to do it (but I will, the day night before school starts). School starting means that I only I can only play on weekends, so the hours I log in will be very limited, which means getting all of the trophies/achievements on TES V: Skryim will take a few months to get. Anyway, I plan on preordering Ni no Kuni: Wrath of the White Witch, and I cannot wait for this game to come out (it will also be the first time I preorder a game, so that's something new. I've already decided that I wont get the Collector's Edition for the game, because I dont have the money, so I'm wondering if I should get the game from Gamestop, and get a cool steelbook, or get it from Amazon and get a DLC of a familiar (kind of like pokemon) that is not available in the Japanese version. I think if the Gamestop one comes with the regular cover and the steelbook, then it wins, because I really like the regular cover, and the steelbook would be a really nice bonus.

why i hate Yahoo! comment boards.....

ok, right now, im at a loss for words. This person claims that she is not racist, yet she states

"nothing is more racist than trying to force everyone to pretend that we're all the same. I have harsh words for blacks and hispanics but they DO have good qualities, but they aren't the good qualities that whites have. Trying to get most blacks into college is idiotic and wastes space for those who have the capability to learn. Blacks are better at physical labor because that's what they needed to do in Africa. Whites are better at planning and thinking because they had to do so to survive harsh European winters. We do EVERYONE a disservice by lying about the abilities of certain races and how do you think it makes them feel? They aren't so stupid that they can't tell when they're being BSed. You think Affirmative Action isn't basically saying "Hey, you're too stupid to do it without a ton of extra help that whites don't get"? It's insulting and WAY more racist than merely pointing out actual verifiable facts about various races (I use blacks as the example because I'm not writing a novel here lol).

As "racist" as I am, I want everyone to have TRULY EQUAL OPPORTUNITY, not this idiotic AA crap. If you are smart enough to succeed, I honestly don't care what color you are. I hate to say this (it sounds so cliched but it's true) but I have non-white friends and they know about my "racism" and they either don't care or they actually agree with me for the most part. But they're not stupid gangbangers or cartel scumbags. I'm not saying that there aren't good people in every race because there are, just that ON AVERAGE, some races have more idiots and violent trash."

she/he also says:

"White people may have racial anger but we don't kill people over it like the blacks and hispanics do, so please explain to me why so many liberals like you think that whites are the worst people EVAR!1! while completely ignoring violent anti-white behavior. If you think that you will be spared because you're a "good, non-racist" white, you're a fool and deserve what's coming to you. The worst thing that happens under white rule is minorities getting their precious feelings hurt (we soothe that butthurt with billion$ of productive white people's tax dollars), why not check out "South African farm murders" to see how benevolent and harmonious it is under non-white rule..in the "Rainbow Nation" no less! S. Africa went from a 1st world country to a nightmarish Mad Max h#llhole in less than 20 years but we think it won't happen here?? Keep closing your eyes to this, downvote me all you want but it won't change what's coming and when it does happen remember that I warned you. Maybe you can say "B-but I defended you on the INTERNET!" and they'll leave you alone....HAHAHAHAAA!"

also:

"You never refute the actual science that proves that blacks and other minorities (except East Asians and Jews who are DEFINITELY not white) have lower IQ's than whites, you never talk about the DOJ crime statistics that show how violent and criminal they are (remember, the "white" statistics are over inflated because they consider Hispanics "white"), all you do is name call. What's idiotic is ignoring science that conclusively proves my comments right. I've always wondered how people who consider science to be their God never comment on it proving that we are all different and some of us are, in fact, inferior. If we are all exactly the same then why does sickle cell anemia ONLY affect blacks? I could go on and on but it never does any good. The brainwashing is too powerful, you are incapable of opening your eyes, reading the research and admitting that we are ALL different, and it's not always in a good way. So if you've never read any of these studies, and know nothing about anthropology, genetics or science in general, where do you get off calling other people ignorant?"

i pointed out to her/him that: While the research does state that some races has lower IQs than others, there are four contemporary classifications of position regarding study of differences in IQ based on race. one group says that this is because of some heritable differences in brain function and environment, another says that this is only because of environmental/social conditions, a third group says that these results are due to mistakes in the testing procedure, and a fourth group holds that either or both of the concepts of race and general intelligence are poorly constructed and therefore any comparisons between races are meaningless (i agree with the fourth one).

The American Psychological Association states: all peoples "possess equal biological ability to assimilate any human culture" and "racist political doctrines find no foundation in scientific knowledge concerning modern or past human populations."

Are there really people who believe things like this. for some reason, i feel like Hitler and this person would have been good friends (with the whole race superiority idea).

i feel like there is no point in arguing with this person, but you cant just sit down quietly (you have to sit down loudly!!!!!) when people are saying that they are superiour to you, your neighbors, and a large population of the american society. any ideas? also, is what this person is saying considered racist/bigoted?

Trophies?!

Hello everyone who is not reading this (if this goes on the forums then it was an accident, i do believe that there already was some kind of topic having to deal with a trophy obsession). A few months ago, I got Valkyria Chronicles and I didn't play it for a few months because i was busy with Skyrim (63% done with achievements, boy!) and i got some sort of trophy obsession between Skyrim, Little Big Planet 1 & 2, Fifa 11, and Madagascar Karts of all things. When I started Valkyria Chronicles, and found out that it had no trophies, I almost put it down (good thing I didn't) for the stupid reason that I beleived that there was no point of playing if I'm not going to get some points out of it, and when I look back on that second where i might have decided that it wasn't worth playing because of the lack of trophy support, and I feel ashamed. Now that I think about it, until I got a PS3 approximately one year ago, i never bothered with trophies/achievements/points. The N64 didnt have trophies, PS2 didnt have it, DS didnt have it, Wii didnt have it, and my when I had my PSP, it didnt have trophies either (never bothered making an account back when the PSP came out, didn't see the point of it). I love collecting things, but my interests change really fast. One year I was into books, the next year--shoes and books, the year after that, anime, shoes, and books, and so on. I can never keep my "obsession" to one thing, and I like seeing a lot of things together (ie shoes all lined up, books must be in order, all of my badges--they range from political to humor--pinned to this certain lanyard, trophies from when I used to play soccer lined up next to my Manchester United flag, etc) so it makes sense why I have this trophy "obsession" because i can "admire" all of my trophies, neatly organized by latest played and then by date achieved. I hate it. I hate by obsession with things, and of all of the things, I hate how this trophy "obsession" might be keeping me from fully enjoying a game, even though I am REALLY enjoying Valkyria Chronicles. I do believe that I am not the only person who is a "trophyholic," but.......In other news, i just read about a woman who watched NASCAR with a dead guy (her boyfriend or husband, not sure) for 18 months, and he she would talk to him and stuff. She said that he was the only person who *ever* cared for her, so I can see why she had trouble losing him, but the think that I'm surprised about is how the body didn't stink, i mean, she might have cleaned him and everything, but you cant really clean those stomach acids, and what about all the other fluids in the body, they aren't circulating, so they eventually "expire" or go bad, amazingly, she said that there wasnt a stink, but, I dont know....

to be continued because i just dont know what to wright and i dont like going on and on, which is what is going to happen to this if i dont stop now.

GLHB, and ManU ftw!
