Just Jon

What is this?  It’s just Jon Arbuckle from the Garfield comics.
What do I mean?  The person that runs this site has taken all the Garfield comics, and removed the cat from them.  It’s fucking funny as hell.

Go, go read, it’s funny

Shark in the water

This is more about the comments then the article itself. And how about half the comments really showed how much people DIDN’T read the article, or have no clue how anything non-human works.

So, one of my rss feeds brought me this story about a shark that killed a swimmer in LA. Article was pretty straight forward, about how the man was swimming in deep water, and the shark may have thought that he was a seal. However, it seems that people never expected an attack at this beach.

Now, out here in Clearwater, shark attacks are EXTREMELY rare. We don’t really have the normal food of sharks in the bay. However, there may have been seals, and other things that sharks eat, in the area that the swimmer was.
Now, the comments are were things went crazy. Some of them were talking about how they were glad that a “liberal” man from LA was killed. However, no where in the story did it say that the dead man was a liberal. Then, there are those saying “GOOD JOB SHARK, SHARK GETS BACK AT HUMAN.” Again, these people are NOT reading the story that was posted, instead allowing their stupidity to come through. It’s not like MILLIONS of people have access to the comments on the story, or that they just may know you. No, nothing like that. Continue reading

Poem I just found

Going through blogs, found a nice poem here.

Are You a Book Person?

A good book is a kind

Of person with a mind

Of her own,

Who lives alone,

Standing on a shelf

By herself.

She has a spine,

A heart, a soul,

And a goal–

To capture, to amuse,

To light a fire

(You’re the fuse),

Or else, joyfully,

Just to be.

From beginning

To end,

Need a friend?

Oldness

I am sitting here playing Final Fantasy 12, and it got me to remembering. I still remember playing the FIRST Final Fantasy on the NES, and thinking “This game rocks”. No, it’s people my age that will play it, and still get that feeling.

It just seems strange to think that this was once what everyone considered the BEST of the BEST, and now we have such great graphics, games seem to go on forever, and you can have so many different endings. I have played video games that make me think I’m watching a movie, and that I have such a great impact on the plot of the game.

Yes, the graphics of the game of yore were from the best, but that’s what we had to work with. Our NES’s and Genesis, could not run what is out now. Then, a few years later, a great thing happened for us. The SUPER NINTENDO!

Yes, this was when you KNEW who made the systems, because their names would appear on them. But that is not all. The best games out there came from their own inhouse development. Yes, there were Final Fantasy games, street fighter, and all the rest. But noone could stop Mario or Sonic. This was what I spent the majority of my time growing up doing. Hell, I still do.

I sometimes want to go back to those simpler, 8-bit times, when you didn’t have to spend three hours to beat one area (unless playing Pitfall or Prince of Persia). When a little guy running around the screen was all you needed to make the day go faster.

Next, I’ll deal with Cartoons.

Ahhh

This was just to cute to pass up, so I’m posting it here.
