4041  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / So I broke my brother in law's finger in 3 places yesterday on: May 06, 2007, 05:52:30 PM
Last night we had the in-laws over for an early mother's day gathering.  My brother in law and his son brought over the football, and we throwing it around after dinner. 

I threw the ball to my Brother in Law and it jammed his finger.   We ended up playing another 30 mins thinking it was just dislocated finger.  When we got inside we checked the damage and his finger was really swollen.  We still figured it was dislocated, he even popped it back in place.  This morning he went to the doctor, and turns out I broke his finger in 3 places. 

I think I need to try out for the niners.  I always had a good arm and decent aim.

Blake is pretty good, he won't win, but he's good.  At first he heavily relied on the beat box, and I'm glad he held back, because it was quickly becoming old.  He brought it back at the best moment.  However, he doesn't have the talent to be #1.  Melinda or Jordan will win it.

cool video...great concept and pretty neat implementation.  i think it's something like that video that really shows just how much games like Guitar Hero and DDR have embedded themselves into pop culture now.  the song isn't bad either.  i've heard a couple other Switchfoot songs before and thought they were decent...might have to check out the new album icon_cool

Oh Gravity is a good album, but Meant to Live is what took them from a limited Christian Market to the secular scene.  That album is my favorite of theirs, there are too many good songs.  Oh Gravity falls closely behind.

Switchfoot is one of my favorite bands, and they have a new video out that features Guitar Hero, thought some people might enjoy it.  It's not that great, but still a fun video

Jeez! Glad to hear mom is ok, but I have to wonder what the difference in velocity was for this collision!

Was this a freeway or an expressway or something because that looks like, at least, 30mph to do that to a civic.

I've always hated the bug for its looks and the pricks I've known who drive them, but it looks like I have to admire the engineering.

It happened on I-5, and she said she was going 60mph.  It happened on a spot where two lanes merge.  She said she didn't even see him at first, and then realized he was right there.  She said he was driving really slow.

Some thoughts:

Glad to hear your mom's okay.
The first pic makes me feel even better about my wife driving her VW Bug.
Any news on "the other guy?" His car looks horrible.


He was walking around cleaning out the front seat of his car (got his stereo out and other things)  He kept asking me what happened, and if this was real.  I think he was in shock, but this was like an hour after it happened.  I couldn't tell if he was drugged up.

4070  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / What a day on: April 04, 2007, 03:49:23 AM
So this morning I wake up for work, as I head out I get my cell phone only to realize it's not charged.  So I bring my charger with me.  I head off to work and about 5 miles from my exit, there's a nice traffic jam.  Great now I'm late.  As I approach the accident all I see is glass and no cars.  I think wtf, where's the cars?  I get to work, do some stuff, and remember to plug in my phone.  Turn it on, and notice I have a voicemail and a Text Message waiting for me to see.  I listen to the voicemail, and it's my dad telling my that mom got in a car accident.  I haven't been near my phone since last night, so I'm thinking, crap this could be from last night. 

Turns out it was the accident that I drove passed.

Dad is in SoCal, so I go to check on her.  Her foot is hurting and think that it's broken.  Some dude pulled in front of her going in a slower speed.  Mom didn't see him at all, and rear ended him.  My mom drives a VW bug (2005) and he was driving a 90's civic. 

Here's her car...



here's his



Never knew a plastic car can do that amount of damage

The freeway crew told my mom that the other driver told them that he fell asleep.  I asked mom if she told the officer that, she didn't so, I found the officer and made him aware of that.

Then I took her to the hospital.  But first she needed to use the bathroom.  That was a fun experience Tongue 

Took her to the hospital, got xrayed, and found out it was only a sprain.

Drove her to the pharmacy by her house, picked up the medication, and somehow lost my cell phone between the ER and the Rx, and nobody has turned it in.  So now I'm out $200 and I can't cancel the contract without penalty.

Had a hell of a time getting her to the house, every entrance to her home has stairs. 

So from 6:30am to 4:30 I was being a good son and looking after her.  I never knew how much work it is to go see the ER.

I was a huge, huge fan of Enemy Territory.  I loved how they incentivized teamplay, and it worked really well.

Any chance they are interested in beta test help?   icon_biggrin icon_biggrin icon_biggrin

I'll be getting beta access to you guys as soon as I can. smile

Gonna pull the trigger and get one of these after an absolutely awesome bonus cheque arrived at work. Anyways so far i've decided on the following....

PS3

Anything else I need? I would like to connect it into my computer soundcard, but not sure what kind of connection I'd need for that?

Game recommendations? After those first two i'm looking at....

Ressurection
Motorstorm
Call of Duty 3

And then lets say I come in and say the following....

You might as well turn this into this...



because that's all you can do it, because the PS3 has no good games out and Sony Sucks!

I'm quite sure you would react in a negative manner.  You would think you are getting picked on, and you would think that I was being a troll. 

Hetz, you are always get upset when this happens to your threads, and yet, you do the same thing that you say others do to you.  If you really want us to believe that you are always being "picked on" by other members, your post doesn't help any for your cause.  I have received 2 reports about your post already.  I can't tell other people to stop when you partake in the same actions

So far, I'm not really thrilled about it.  It's way too easy on Hard, and it's way to quick (not speed wise, gameplay wise) I don't like how long the missions or should I say short.

Looks fine but it doesn't really feel like there is hook this time like Vice City (Miami in the 80s) and San Andreas (California Gangs in the 90s) had.  Which doesn't necessarilly impact the quality of the final product but doesn't make the trailer particularly compelling.

Exactly what I was thinking. The other games had a new hook to them, like the 80's or 90's Rap thing....but this just looks like some generic mob/gang thing set in....oh wow, Liberty City...again.

I dunno, I'm sure it will be cool and all....but this trailer sure was a letdown, IMO.

The hook might be, that it might actually have a story line...

Blake is the only interesting person left on the show. Last night's show convinced me that Melinda and Lakisha are one-trick ponies, and they both bore me to tears. I'm actually looking forward to rock night or country night, so they are forced to sing something different.

Blake is far from interesting.  I hate the dude.  The beat box thing was cool the first few times, move on.  Then when he does actually sing, it's pretty bad.  The same with the wanna K-Fed Chris whatever his name.  How in the hell are these two clowns still in it is beyond me.
