Technorati. and other stuff

February 5, 2006

Just started a Technorati account, no particular reason just influenced by atariboy. It also seems like a cool way maybe to gain more views at my view of the world and my abstract thoughts, doubt that it will work though. I am currently residing at 1,106,923 place out of alll of the blogs ^^.

Just had a clan match >FT and I have to say it was one of the most blatant uses of cheating I have ever seen in my life ! We were using their server as we dont own one, but for any cs players out there how is it possible to get from CT spawn to T spawn in 4 seconds on dust 2 I will never know. And to make it worse they denied they were cheating. This one incident has put me off of CS for a while and I am really looking forward to the imminent arrival of HL2 so I can try DOD source which has been recommended so highly by a multitude of people.

I have uncovered a new found urge to do well in life and in college from somewhere and have promptly written a revision plan for my AS levels and I plan on sticking to it! I expect though that all drive will drop off in a couple of days though and I will go back to being lazy again. God there are some things that you hate about yourself but you are never able to chenge eh.

What have mario and pacman got in common?

February 1, 2006

Pacman and Mario are two classic games that have been out for what seems for ever. But have you ever stopped to think what these games promote to young children who play them??.

For instance in Mario you get a ‘magic’ mushroom and all of a sudden you become Super Mario capable of doing anything! does this imply that if you take magic mushroom’s in real life you will become all powerful and everyone should bow down before your mighty prowess??

Same thing in Pac-man, you go around a maze popping small pills all the while being constantly tracked down by a small army of ghosts, and when they get too close you pop a super pill and suddenly you are invincible! and you are on top of the world able to rack up a high score and destroy those pesky ghosts (temporarily). But just as in real life suddenly the pills effect dissapears and you are left craving more as those ghosts get ever closer. Just like a real drug addiction in game.

So just using these as examples, these two individual games have said ;

1.) use drugs, they are a handy tool when being chased by ghosts.

2.)Magic mushrooms make you big and strong.

3.)You can have fun while using them.

4.)you need them to achieve a high score ^^

Or is it me just looking for meaning in places which dont actually have a meaning?
