Random Thoughts For Random Times

Couple of things came across my desk the other day that I felt warranted a blog entry. I may be a geek but even I have standards.

Anyways First up is the best Idea I’ve heard all morning:

The Shaving Industry Lies

Next Up… Confirm how geeky you really are with this new and improved home Geek Test.

The Geek Test

And yes, if you pee on yourself and turn blue, you should seek help immediately.

Hell? Yes. Line on the left, One Handbasket each …

Hell? Yes. Line on the left, One Handbasket each

And even though it’s a bit out of date (on an internet timescale – aka it’s old news from 2 weeks ago), here’s a fun little quiz where you can see which level of Hell the handbasket will deliver you to.

Apparently I dont’ get to pass Go, nor am I allowed to collect $200. Instead I’m heading straight for aisle 2 where I can be at home with all my fellow degenerates. Yay Me!

The sweet light no longer strikes against your eyes. Your shade has been banished to… the Second Level of Hell!

Second Level of Hell

    You have come to a place mute of all light, where the wind bellows as the sea does in a tempest. This is the realm where the lustful spend eternity. Here, sinners are blown around endlessly by the unforgiving winds of unquenchable desire as punishment for their transgressions. The infernal hurricane that never rests hurtles the spirits onward in its rapine, whirling them round, and smiting, it molests them. You have betrayed reason at the behest of your appetite for pleasure, and so here you are doomed to remain. Cleopatra and Helen of Troy are two that share in your fate.

The Dante’s Inferno Test has banished you to the Second Level of Hell!
Here is how you matched up against all the levels:

Level Score
Purgatory (Repenting Believers) Very Low
Level 1 – Limbo (Virtuous Non-Believers) Very Low
Level 2 (Lustful) Very High
Level 3 (Gluttonous) Moderate
Level 4 (Prodigal and Avaricious) Very High
Level 5 (Wrathful and Gloomy) High
Level 6 – The City of Dis (Heretics) Very High
Level 7 (Violent) High
Level 8- the Malebolge (Fraudulent, Malicious, Panderers) Very High
Level 9 – Cocytus (Treacherous) Very High

What I Did On My Internet Vacation, By Greg – Age …

What I Did On My Internet Vacation, By Greg – Age 29½

It was a dark time for The Rebellion. The Empire had cut off supply lines and there was no communication for weeks on end. Individual rebel cells had to subsist on playing old computer games like Populous and The Sims until supply lines could be re-established. Due to a system wide radio blackout caused by a super star destroyer lurking behind one of the moons of Jupiter, phone lines were reduced to hand held battery operated “cell phones” of marginal quality and range.

Okay… enough of that. I think I’ve butchered George Lucas’ works enough for one week.

Basically I spent my week in internet purgatory being driven mad by the lack of contact with the outside world. I unpacked some of my crap, tried to find the rest of my crap for my move south and when I wasn’t doing either of those I tried to amuse myself by playing some old video games that weren’t internet dependent and doing a little writing for my D&D campaign. All and all a fairly mind-numbingly boring/annoying week.

On the bright side I did manage to go see X-Men 2 with Trevor, Angela and Allan last weekend. It was very good and enjoyable and I think it outshone the first one because you had a group of already well developed characters having fun and going one step further in their development. Plus it was fun to watch Wolvie cut loose and go berserker as he’s been known to do in the comics.

Next weekend should bring about another movie foray as well as the usual suspects and I have made plans to go watch Keanu Reeves say “Whoa!” one more time in Matrix Reloaded. Hopefully it won’t suck, but based on the trailers I’ve seen, I’m looking forward to it regardless.

Anyways. I do believe that It’s time to stop rambling and to go and watch some TV. Army of Darkness is on so I MUST go and watch it.

And Remember… Shop smart. shop S-Mart

Greetings Starfighter…

Okay. So it was the best I could come up with on short notice. Geez. Give me a break. I’ve been internet defficient for the past week and a half. My brain has gone to mush without a broadband pipeline to feed me more porn and idiot websites. You see if you can do any better if you were in this situation.

Errr… anyways, in case you hadn’t clued in yet, I am back now and am happily wading through the backlog of spam and things that I’ve missed in the meantime.

I’ll post more about my week long sabbatical/adventure into that scary thing called real life in a few days but for now I have to have a deep and meaningful conversation with my pillow. G’night
