  1. There is something I would like to say. I am gay. I'm a regular poster here and I wouldn't in a million years admit it unless I was hiding behind this account..Like I am now

    What hurts me the most is that you all seem like nice people, when you're not acting the way, well...people act. There is so much hatred of people who are simply wired differently from others. I really can't understand it. People allude to it and I guess that's fine, but it still hurts just the same.

    Even though I'm not really "coming out" I still feel a little bit better being able to admit it on this forum, in some small way.

  2. Just finished shopping for Christmas - I spent approx $120(NZ) on various stuffage:

    • Dad: Wooden Peppermill - I engraved Merry Christmas into it, only to find I missed the first 's'... idiotic. Luckily I hadn't gone too deep and was able to sand it out. I think he'll still love it.
    • Mum: An ornamental wooden pot with Paua shell embedded in it
    • Eldest Brother: Boardgame called Scattergories
    • 2nd Eldest Brother: Boardgame called Game of Life - we had this when we were kids - great fun
    • Youngest Brother: Not sure yet - I'm thinking of getting him an ammo box or something from an army surplus store
    • Aunty (who lives with my parents): A book called Jessica - based on a true story about a girl in Australia fighting for Aborigine rights. The film adaption is pretty good too.
    Buying stuff is easy - I can usually come up with some decent presents, I can never think of anything I want..

    I'll be heading to my parents over Christmas for three days, then I have to work between boxing day and new years :\ While the business is shutdown over the holidays, they need someone on the helpdesk. Still, I'm aiming to get a Wii on launch and will take it in with me to whittle away the hours I'm there.

    open barre cords work great up and down the neck, works good with a slide too. You can use your other fingers for adding 9th or 11ths. I've been using this for strange basslines too.

  6. ...short of actually quiting your drug of choice.

    Hey all! I had some quick questions. Let us speak hypotheticals(s/p) for a moment. Say I have a friend, and that friend has weekly piss tests, but he refuses to quit smoking weed. Are there any ways he could clean up his urine short of quiting? Factors to remember: they test for high levels of water in the urine (low creatine levels). Also, he has a budget of $0.

    Suggestions I've heard:

    A shot of vinegar a day, diluted with kool-aid.

    A cap full of peroxide in a glass of water, followed by lots of water.

    Niacin pills.

    Those are all the things my friend has tried. It usually lowers the THC level below the limit (they don't count anything below 50 as a fail). Do you guys know of any surefire things that would work? Thanks in advance for your help.

      Yep, that's right. Smoking weed should be mandatory.

      Weed, no unless you're weak. Coke, you might end up sucking dick for.

      The general concsnsus among authority figures is to fuck the many to catch to the few they perceive as doing something wrong.

      Anyway I got these "Back to Nature" brand honey graham sticks of which the second ingredient listed is niacin. Thought no legal system has shit on me, I'll eventually be in double jeopardy for testing. I haven't smoked in over a year but I had to be tested to get hired for a job which I passed no problem. But missing out on smoking anyway is pissing me off. There's the threat of being tested if I'm injured or involved in an accident. It doesn't help that lately I've flipped out a couple times cursing assholes out and kicking a trashcan. But anyway, if I was to smoke at the end of a week then get a good amount niacin and cranberry juice (not from concentrate), I'll probably be pretty clean in the event I am tested with my crazy metabolism. I have no freaking gut. If you've ever seen the before-after gag in the movie Poltergiest, I no longer have any gut to be able to do that with. So if you work your ass off, and are generally healthy you should be better off, though I'm not in a hurry to smoke up and try my luck.

      On a side note, I could piss on all the pussies using steroids. Marijuana is not a performance-enhancing drug (Fuck those assholes Mark McGuire, Sammy Sosa, and whoever else) and the only reason mj was initially banned was due to the Nazi Willam Randolf Hearst's propaganda. It's freaking bullshit that one of Mike Tyson's last bouts he actually won fairly without going psycho was changed to a no contest due to him testing postive for pot and only pot. Here's good question... How many of the pharmaceutical companies' shitty addictive over-priced drugs with all their awful side effects could be replaced by just smoking a little pot to relieve stress and anxiety now and then (not necessarily habitually)?

      The only justiificatioon for not occasionally smoking weed is the threat of consequences by a screwed up system. While habiutal smoking of anything is bad for you, smoking as few as three times a year is easily more beneficial in letting you relax than detrimental in any way. Fuck tobacco.

  9. It kicked my ass. I'm still feeling tired after last night's incredible marathon of coolness. Wel eft the house at about 5 PM, and got there at 7, which was perfect timing as that's when the halloween even goes on and stuff. So we got those plastic armbands and stuff on entrance, and then took the Monorail to the Magic Kingdom park. It was pretty cool when we got off, weather wise. It definitely got down into the 50s later in the night, but otherwise it was pretty awesome. On arrival there was a mass exodus of people leaving, because the park was closing to all who didn't have a halloween pass kind of thing, and besides most of those people had been there like all day.

    Funny thing was, even though Main Street and the bit in front of the castle was crowded, all the branch-off areas were nearly devoid of people. Thing was, everyone was at those trick or treat places scattered throughout the park, so as a result, there was like 3 or 4 people per ride. It was really cool, no wait lines. Especally great because it wasn't in the middle of summer, and deathly hot. Everyone was pretty much dressed up, but there were a good amount of people like us who didn't bother. Our reason is that costumes were in fact a real pain in the ass to go trudging around it all night long.

    All throughout the park there were events going on like Villain's Mix and Mingle, where they all come out of the castle and stuff. Pretty neat, they were totally in character and everything. It was really amazing. They also had a few parades going as the night went on. That kinda stuff makes you think at how much they had to practice in order to get that entire elaborate dance routine down.

    As for the rides that we went on, it was pretty great all-around, as there were like no people whatsoever. Clockwise around the park, I think we went: Pirates of the Caribbean, which was updated to reflect the movies, so it kicked ass. Haunted Mansion, which I didn't get to go on several years ago, as we bypassed it. It was very neat, and it had a ghost rock band! Splash Mountain was closed, probably for good reason. Didn't want to get people soaking went in the current temps, I bet. That would suck. We also went to Small World, which gets totally stuck in your head for the rest of the night.

    There wasn't much else to speak of, at least I can't remember any other distinctive rides I went on, except for Space Mountain, which was THE best ride of the session. Not only is it very awesome and stuff, but as we approached the main area, the staff that were there were like "Do you want to see the control room?" Which was above our heads and before the actual ride. Inside, it was pretty cool. Had cameras and the like, and he said all the glowing switches actually worked, so no button pressing. Apparently, tracks A and B aren't actually different from each other, they just are mirrored. And get this: The top speed of Space Mountain is only 27 MPH, but it differs depending on which Space Mountain you go to, because there are others across the world. So ours is the second fastest in the world. I don't remember what the first was. And on top of all that, he led us around the back way to get in the front of the line (Which was the only significant line of all the rides we took). It was total celebrity treatment, and very cool.

    So after that, then we got the fireworks. At the current time we were wandering around the park and were behind the Carousel (sp?) when they started. It was the best fireworks show i've ever seen. Damn amazing. They fired off a huge amount of stuff all around us, and in the distance is where the big ones blew up. They were awhile away, because the light explosion was huge, but you couldn't HEAR it until like a second after it blew up in the sky. Those were some big fireworks. They had villian voiceovers and stuff too, timed in with the firework barrages, so it was pretty funny.

    After all that and the parades plus the fireworks, I picked up a cool Disney coffee mug and a Pirates of the Caribbean snowglobe, neither of which show up well in the crappy video i'm about to post a link to. But damn, good times to be had. A fantastic substitute for trick or treating here, anytime. No more moving Halloween bullshit like last year, where they pretty much moved Halloween to be held on the day before, because Halloween was originally on Sunday. Bloody christian controlled neighborhoods.

    Anyway, it was pretty much awesome all the way around. Here's my video documentary. Good luck understanding me or seeing anything useful, though. Webcams suck.

  10. What can I say about whores? A buddy of mine's GF left for Australia, it was her going away celebration. Good times, drank alotta booze, it's the Canadian thing to do. The Canadian government never tells us how much money they collect in booze tax, but I imagine it being a fuckload.

    So tonight I ran into one of those high dollar whores. Afterwards most of us went to this Nightclub known as the Tonic on the Granville Strip. Anyways outside of there was this incredibly hot Dutch babe. I knew she was Dutch because of her passport from Holland she showed the bouncer.

    Sexy ass Brunette, supermodel, pornstar, centerfold, beautiful this babe was. She was with this dude in his late 40's who appeared to be of Philipino descent. She was either into millionares, or this guy bought himself a high dollar prostitute, and decided to "club" with her, before cashing in on all she's really worth.

    To prove my point, I tried hitting on her. Fearlessly, went up to her, introduced myself and started flirting wit her. Offered to buy her a drink and asked her to dance with me. Tried my best to seduced this goregeous babe. She politely declined all of such. I knew of course, the sole reason being, she was all in it for the money.

    Amazing, how beauty as such, can be so easily bought and sold.

  11. A few hours ago my dad calls and tells us that the tree in the back yard has fallen over. The fucking huge one. It was rather unexpected, even considering the weather and the fact that it's so old. This was a big tree; even after he had some landscapers take off the top HALF of the tree a few years back, it still measured at about 75 feet. The base is about 4 feet in diameter. The branch span was nearly half of the entire yard.

    Anyway, this is the part you people actually find interesting: as it landed, it managed to fall on top of-- and crush-- my mom's Toyota Avalon, my dad's Porsche Carrera, a bunch of gardening equipment, another 25-foot tree and the one-piece garage that my dad had shipped in by flatbed truck THIS MORNING. So he literally had a brand new garage for half a day before a tree fell on it. The porch has also been torn up by the roots and I'm sure there'll be cracks in the driveway. Actually, the garage might be OK... it only got hit by the top branches. We're not sure though, we haven't been able to assess damage too well as there's tree everywhere.

    I went over to see if anything could be done, but by the time we got there it was too dark to get sawing. The weather was terrible too, as was the flash on my camera. I did catch this gem, though:



    Tomorrow we'll be heading back out to start up the chainsaws. I'll have better pictures afterward.

      I knocked down a tree once.



      with my leg.




      Well it was just a rotten trunk with diameter of about five inches.


      Then I swung it around like a bo and hit another tree and the back of the trunk I was holding fell off behind me (rather than the end I hit the other tree with). It was quite hilarious. I was like "Hmm, what just broke?"

  12. As the title says. I got myself the money to spend on this technological marvel.. :p because I had seen what compact cameras did and I didn't like it.

    Now, today I picked it up and it was a lot like christmas I must say. :) Charged the battery put on the lens, checked out all the stuff you could do. Tested the zoom and wondered, where is the memory card? (or CF-card as the camera calls it)

    I look through everything in case I missed it. After all, they're fairly small.

    I read the list of things that are supposed to be in the package and I realize that there's no CF card featured with the camera. (doh) Something I had completely overlooked, as I basically took it for granted that there would be atleast a small card in the package so you could atleast take a few photos with it. But no... no card.

    So what I got now is a 7000kr or 1000$ or 770€ paperweight. A very nice and cool paperweight with zoom abilities. But a paperweight never the less.

    Of course, I basically ordered a card instantly. (Found a nice cheap one for 400kr at 1gb with 66x speed) But it won't show up before monday. So, yay me. :D

  13. ...my computer was on the verge of death. It is now passed on, having served me well for three and a half years. On the bright side, I have a really neat new computer.

    I've been partying a lot more lately, getting drunk and the like. Whatever works :-P

  19. I went mountain biking / camping with two co-workers this last weekend on the North Umpqua Trail in Oregon. Here are some pictures:

    On the left again


    Heh, I sort of wiped out, and a stick ripped off some flesh from my knee.


    It's just a flesh wound!

      I used to almost never get sunburnt as a kid. I would just tan without even any lotion. Now I get a burnt a bit (although never really bad and I don't think I've ever been burnt to the point of skin peeling). Is it normal to change like that or is it thanks to depleted ozone.

  24. I could rant in detail to a T as to what transpired the night before, but I just have one event in particular to share. I can assure you, it's disturbing. It was my buddy's 21st and we were at a bar with a bunch of friends. I had this pitcher of beer which I had just poured myself a beer out of.

    To the bloody point, this chick asks me "Can I have a sip of beer?" I says "Yes."

    I was going to get her a glass, but the bitch just drinks straight out of the pitcher. Unbelievably gross and disturbing right? Some bitch just drinking out of your pitcher, what's the big deal? Well, what if I told you there is a very good possibility that this chick has herpes.

    It's not 100% confirmed as she's obviously not going to blab about it. But within that circle of people it's been confirmed. Not just as some viscious evil rumor either. Nevertheless, I told everyone who drank out of the pitcher and dumped it out in the bathroom.

    A case of alcohol abuse I know, that sweet beer dumped into the urinal trough. The fact this chick drank straight out of the pitcher like that tells me she probably is diseased and being a real sociopathic bitch about sharing the misery.

  25. My family and I were coming home from dropping my Dad off at the airport. We passed through this neighborhood and I noticed something very odd. There was this REALLY crappy run down house. Parked in the driveway was a Dodge Viper and Two Corvette Avalanches, both of which were the exact same. Why the hell would someone buy 3 expensive (One of which is SUPER expensive) cars, but only live in a crappy run down house?
