My complaint about Robert

So here I am taking time out of my busy schedule to let you and maybe a few other people know that it is our duty to our children and to their children and to our yet unborn posterity to provide an atmosphere of mutual respect, free from officialism, irrationalism, and all other forms of prejudice and intolerance. For openers, by allowing Robert to inculcate cranky paroxysms, we are allowing him to play puppet master. All he really wants is to hang onto the perks he’s getting from the system. That’s all he really cares about.

Is it important that Robert uses vulgar language and makes obscene gestures at those whose opinions differ from his? Of course it’s important. But what’s more important is that the fallout from his snarky catch-phrases has been an increasingly predatory environment of calculation, scheming, and pandering that will, by virtue of its omnipresence, submerge us in a sea of credentialism. But I digress. This is not the first time I’ve wanted to compare, contrast, and identify the connections among different kinds of prudish gnosticism. But it is the first time I realized that if you read his writings while mentally out of focus, you may get the sense that snotty, combative scalawags are easily housebroken. But if you read Robert’s writings while mentally in focus and weigh each point carefully, it’s clear that if we don’t remove the Robert threat now, it will bite us in our backside quicker than you can double-check the spelling of “hexosemonophosphoric”.

Robert is currently limited to shrieking and spitting when he’s confronted with inconvenient facts. Sooner or later, however, Robert is likely to switch to some sort of “trick us into trading freedom for serfdom” approach to draw our attention away from such facts. If you want to clear up these muddied waters with some reality, then tell everyone you know the truth, that some day, in the far, far future, he will realize that his most recent mawkish claim (viz., that we should derive moral guidance from his glitzy, multi-culti, hip-hop, consumption-oriented utterances) is a tissue of lies, bias, and emotional manipulation from beginning to end. This realization will sink in slowly but surely and will be accompanied by a comprehension of how Robert may be reasonably cunning with words. However, he is entirely scummy with everything else. By working together, we can protect our peace, privacy, and safety. May we never forget this if we are to deny Robert  and his assistants a chance to trade facts for fantasy, truth for myths, academics for collective socialization, and individual thinking for group manipulation.

Game of the Week: UrbanDead

So to keep with our theme of Zombie Mayhem, I bring to you Urban Dead. This game has been around for quite some time now. It is an extremely basic web based game, where you move around the city, collecting items, and barricades to save you from the zombies outside. Different classes enable you to have different abilities as in many games, but this one has a twist… you can actually play as the zombies! Every hour you get a certain amount of moves, but if your moves run out and your outside, one of the lingering zombies may come past and kill you, bringing you to the ranks of Zombie fun. Some players may choose to stay this way, and play their game as the Zombie menance, but dont worry, you can be converted back to human provided you can find a some one with the proper syringe to do so. As i said before the game has a very basic display (Click Here to see a sample) Any way enough talking about this rather creative game, its time to go play it, Have fun.

Game Of The Week: The Last Stand 2


So by now you should have made your way though the first episode of The Last Stand to freedom. But Alas, while on the way to a military base, a medic treating a patient onboard realizes that his patient is dead seconds before the zombie kills him and the pilots, causing a catastrophic crash of which you are the sole survivor. After a month hiding in a hardware store, you hear a radio broadcast stating that the surviving military and civilian forces are calling all remaining survivors to a coastal city in order to save as many lives as possible before abandoning the mainland to the undead and taking to the seas. You have one month to travel across the state before the ships leave.
New game features include the ability to set traps, search individual buildings for survivors and gear, and travel between individual cities.

O and be Careful… some of these guys.. carry weapons that will kill your friends.

You build a small fortification where you defend your life from hordes of zombies. At night hordes of the undead come to feast on your flesh. All that stops them from doing so, is a shoddy fence and your expert marksmanship. During the day the zombie nightmare subsides and you have time to search for survivors and weapons to help you in your defense. The more survivors you have the better your searches go. At night the Survivors will help you defend your lives. This is a very interesting game.

Cocaine’s a Hell of a Drug… Er Drink

It Tastes Like A Cherry Flavored Fireball

Sunday is my birthday, and as part of the celebration my best friend Rob came down from Albany for a night of gaming fun. The night started like any gaming night, with a visit to my friend General Tsao over at the Middletown You You, and ended like a night I will soon not forget. This story though, starts about a month ago. I had a craving for the Doggy Goodness that Rich’s Hotdogs has to offer. I stopped in picked up the dogs, and something in the mini fridge on the counter caught my eyes. This shiny red can with the word Cocaine written on it. Did my eyes deceive me? Was this the mystery energy drink I had heard so much about over a year prior to this date? I reached in and focused on the label the words ENERGY DRINK was written around the top of the can. This was it! I had wondered so long what it was like. And just my luck, they had TWO! I knew immediately what I was going to do with these. I got back to my house on this lucky Saturday afternoon, and while I was chowing down on the Hot Doggy Goodness. I happened to catch Rob Online. At that point I planted the seed. I told him that the next time he came down for game night I had a surprise, and how right I was, such a surprise I was not even expecting what was going to happen. Flash back to last night. We get back to my house at about 6:30 and I unveil the drinks. At first Rob was shocked that I had actually found them, then excited for the fun to come. We decided it was too early for an energy boost since we had just filled our bellies with the general. We sat down ad time flew, next thing we knew it was close to 10pm, and we had not taken a single break, from the relentless gaming onslaught. We both decided it was a good time to call our loved ones and tell them that they are so. Somewhere between 10:30 and 11, we were looking for the munchies.

Recipe: Peanut Butter Double Cheddar Cheese Burger

CONCEPT:
While I was in California we stopped in a place that served peanut butter bacon cheeseburgers. Ever since then I have wanted to make them at home. This is the first recipe I am posting. It is not a perfect recipe, as many of mine are not. At the bottom I will write my lessons learned from this recipe.

INGREDIENTS:

2 Frozen Hamburger patties
2 Slices Cheddar Cheese
1 Hamburger Bun
Creamy Peanut Butter

DIRECTIONS:
Cook Both Burger Patties. I fried mine, but you could grill them as well. Place the cheddar cheese on top of one of the patties while cooking it. Place one patty on the bun, put a spoonful of peanut butter down, and then place the other patty on top of the peanut butter. Then Eat.

LESSONS LEARNED:
1. Peanut butter melts when it is hot (this I knew), I placed too much PB in between the patties, and this caused them to slide apart when I was trying to eat it, making the whole process much more difficult and messy. In the future I will try a thinner layer of PB on the top and bottom of the bun to see if this will be less messy.

2. I have the idea of putting the pb into the patty. This will require me to make the Hamburgers from scratch instead of using the frozen Store bought ones. I believe this will add an interesting flavor thought out the entire burger, without the need for the mess mentioned above.

3. I would like to add the bacon back, and possibly the lettuce. If i go with option 2 i might go down this path as well.

Game Of The Week: Desktop Tower Defense

Desktop Tower Defense is one of those great flash based internet games, where you start playing for a few min, and hours later your still having fun. Its a very simple concept game. all you have to do is stop the “armies” from reaching the other side of the board. You get a plethora of weapons to choose from. You build these different types of “turrets” to Kill the invading armies.

Desktop Tower Defense

A few hints i have so far for this are as follows.

1: Build your turrets in a maze. The armies can not walk through them, use this to your advantage. Blockoff paths, and channel them to where you want them to go. Make them pass the same turrets as many times as possible. The only thing you cant do is trap them.

2: Upgrade your towers every chance you get. For a minor fee you can double, triple, and then some, your turrets damage, and range. Making it a much more fierce fighting force. As the levels move on the enemies will have more HP(Health Points) and an upgraded tower will not be able to cause enough damage to them.

3: Find a happy medium between the 2 above posted Hints.

Game is posted after the break.

Have Fun!
