The Graveyard Shift: Places That Do It Better

So, a new wholesale food store that caters "primarily" to restaurants opened up recently, and I decided to check it out. Aside of finally managing to get a hold of a restaurant brand of mayonnaise, I also decided to pick up a crate of Mexican Coke. Complete withglass bottles and everything, and none of that… » 7/17/14 8:59pm 7/17/14 8:59pm

Hey, Guys? *We* Are The One Percent

But fuck the 0.02% extra that's there, because I hate uneven stats. But yea. We're the cool, hip, awesome 1% that hangs out here. I mean, "yea, duh, dude.

Neat HandwriTAYng

Today's Monday. Seeing how I spent all weekend doing other stuff, I didn't get around doing my homework, until today. SO, amidst all the kanji writing and stuff, I realized something . . . my Japanese handwriting is way the hell neater and cleaner than my English handwriting. And well . . . I can't help but wonder how… » 6/30/14 7:32pm 6/30/14 7:32pm

Weekend Hangout

Welp. Looks like I'm staying home for a while. Seeing how there's nothing going on, I figured I should make a little hangout place to chill out at. So, what's up with everyone? How y'all be? Me? Ended up not going to HEMA practice cause I hurt my hand pretty bad yesterday, and don't feel like making it get worse. So I… » 6/28/14 3:43pm 6/28/14 3:43pm

Why Do We Kill?: On Morality In Games

I think we can safely say that, in the grand scheme of things, the majority of games are violent. And that's cool, and all.
