    Whenever I think of Freelancer, I can never remember if it comes from the Starlancer, or Freespace universe.

    It's not a good game, but it has an understanding with good games.

    Man, I am jonesing for an action game. I loaded up S.T.A.L.K.E.R. and its cool but just not what I am looking for. Beat ME2 three times so not going to play through time 4. Bioshock 1 and 2 aren't really replaying and beat HL2 once and not going to play through it again. Ugh.

    is that a perpective trick or do you have a massive forearm?

    it looks like a ham from that angle

    a ham with a little hand on the end

    I could destroy lesser men.

    Like, it's funny when people go on and on about "olo internet tough guy". I mean, I'm a fat ass, but I'm a fatass that used to bench 450 with ease so some of that's still there. So, basically, there are not very many situations where my ass has been threatened. People tend to stand down if I get involved in a physical dispute.

    I'm also quick from running half back from time to time.

    So... super huge and fast. And a long reach. Fuuuuuu

    Also, preacher, I'm right handed.

    It's like... 3x as big.

    Yes.

    My brother could bench more than I could at the same age. Though when football season was over he always entered weight lifting competitions.

    Know how they say when you're an older brother and are always kicking your younger brother's ass, how you're gonna regret it when they get older?

    Yeah man.

    Tyler would cop an attitude with mom and I'd cop one with him and he'd be all "You wanna step outside?" and I'm all "God, no, please let's not."

    no, raw means unshirted- without a stiff, supportive shirt that assists performance

    anyway 450 is a really, really impressive bench, well done

    Oh, nah. No weight shirts or anything. Just jersey.

    450 might be pushing it just a little bit, but I definitely hit over 400.

    Should have seen our coach. Used to be a police officer. He'd bench 450 effortlessly.

    “Well,” Violent J says, “science is… we don’t really… that’s like…” He pauses. Then he waves his hands as if to say, “OK, an analogy”: “If you’re trying to fuck a girl, but her mom’s home, fuck her mom! You understand? You want to fuck the girl, but her mom’s home? Fuck the mom. See?”
    I look blankly at him. “You mean…”
    “Now, you don’t really feel that way,” Violent J says. “You don’t really hate her mom. But for this moment when you’re trying to fuck this girl, fuck her! And that’s what we mean when we say fuck scientists. Sometimes they kill all the cool mysteries away. When I was a kid, they couldn’t tell you how pyramids were made…”
    “Like Stonehenge and Easter Island,” says Shaggy. “Nobody knows how that shit got there.”
    “But since then, scientists go, ‘I’ve got an explanation for that.’ It’s like, fuck you! I like to believe it was something out of this world.”
