|I hate people who can't spell||April 21, 2013, 5:16 pm|
I have to get it out, so why not on Doomworld? I wish there were real-world grammar Nazis to exterminate all the inferior spellers and those who can't use punctuation or distinguish between too and to. The fact that I have to compete (and sometimes lose) in essays and other writing pieces with others of such a low writing caliber pisses me off. It's the fact that a teacher/professor might give me a lower grade on a paper than one that's riddled with errors. When reading stuff online (guhhh) I get so distracted staring at mistakes like the ones below.
Examples of things that make me want to find people and punch them:
I can understand if you just had a random brain fart. It happens to me, too. It's the sheer volume of these errors that disturbs me. Anyone else bothered like me, or am I an old fart for taking offense?

Here I come.
I'm getting interviewed for a foreign exchange program later this week. I'm sort of nervous about it. Searching online hasn't really come up with any specific questions that I may be asked. It'll be through YFU USA and the Congress-Bundestag Youth Exchange Program. I'm all concerned over 'Were my essays long enough?' and 'Do I need insurance?' If they emailed asking for an interview that's a good sign, right? Anyway, if this works out it'll be almost as exciting as the day I received DOOM in the mail... Just sayin'.
Wish me luck.

Apparently everyone who posts blogs has a blog page.
I wonder what other neat features I haven't discovered yet?
|I've decided that I DO want a birthday map.||December 29, 2012, 1:13 pm|
|As some of you know, I've been working on a Hide and Seek project. Unfortunately, I've only received one submission, making a total of two maps. Fortunately, I like how it looks so far and would like to continue the project. So, since my birthday passed recently, I was hoping someone (or people) could build a map for me. The more the merrier! The rules are in the first post of that thread.|
|Birthday avatar request!||December 11, 2012, 2:03 pm|
|So, my B-Day is on the apocalypse, and I just wanted a little something to cherish before the world ends. I was thinking an avatar like mine, only with a soulsphere. Well, how about it?|
|Someone needs to animate this.||November 23, 2012, 8:22 pm|
Because I need a new screensaver. I have no idea how this would loop, but it must. Could you imagine having this for your wallpaper, and if you left your computer for a few minutes, it came alive??? That would make me void my bowels almost instantly.
|What's this song?!?!||October 14, 2012, 3:04 pm|
Banged out the tune on my keyboard, but can't remember the name.
|Detroit||September 30, 2012, 5:29 pm|
I recently spent the weekend in Detroit, stayed at the Renaissance Center, and thought I'd post some pics. Most of these are graffiti I saw on a rails-to-trails trail I walked on.
It was pretty cool, but unfortunately there were a ton of abandoned buildings, the size of which sometimes you wouldn't believe. Like opera houses just empty and crumbling. I wish I'd snapped a couple of shots of that too. It's just so empty for being so huge, there are four-lane highways that used to carry thousands of auto workers to and from work that now just support a trickle of cars. You can literally park in the middle of the road in some parts of downtown and not have trouble.
|Gayness with my graphics driver [RESOLVED]||August 13, 2012, 2:46 pm|
So I updated my graphics driver, and I'm pretty sure I deleted my old one, however when I try to open up any game, I get this:

|Alright. Jon Heder and some guy in his 50's. Jon goes to the guy's class to get self-esteem or something and he ends up trying to steal Jon's girl. Anger Management reminded me of this. Also there was a short scene with the guy who played Zoolander.|
