Games / What the hell is this game from my childhood?
« on: June 21, 2018, 09:31:39 PM »
I've been cursed with memories of this weird PC game I played ever since I was a kid. I made some mockups:

The main part of the game is this game board where you progress along the path and solve little word questions at each spot. The goal is the train tunnel at the end.

When you enter the tunnel, you are met with a disembodied face which mocks you for not solving enough questions correctly, and then he opens a trap door beneath you and you fall through the void and land back at the beginning of the board.

These memories are from forever ago but they're so clear. What the hell is this game?

Off Topic / Good free offline games for a planeride?
« on: May 22, 2018, 03:43:18 PM »
I'm going on a plane back home tomorrow and none of my game devices charge in this dumb country. All of them except my laptop.

SO, does anyone know any good free offline games that I can download and play on the plane? Keyboard-only would be preferable.

Off Topic / The term "Original Character" is loving stupid
« on: April 09, 2018, 05:40:21 PM »
It's inseparably tied to deviantart, tumblr, and all the sonic/anime/game fan characters that infest those places. When Stan Lee created Spiderman, he didn't tell everybody to check out his "OC". They're CHARACTERS. There's no reason to emphasize the originality of a character unless you're insecure about how you stole the design from somewhere else. I can't design a character anymore without feeling like some tumblr reject drawing a sonic fan character. It's ruining my good times.

Also there's this egotistical slant on the whole concept where your OC is supposed to represent yourself. Your OC is much cooler looking, more talented, and more attractive than you. It's weird and depressing seeing all these kids pretending to be fictional characters rather than just being themselves. I feel like this is a precursor to the matrix where everyone is an avatar instead of a human being.

Off Topic / Good software for taking cropped screenshots?
« on: April 07, 2018, 07:04:03 PM »
I'm on Windows and I'm getting tired of having to print-screen + crop the image in some image application. On OSX there was a built-in way to take cropped screenshots.

Anyway, what I'm looking for is some kind of software that lets me drag a marquee on the screen and save that cropped screenshot to the desktop or some designated folder. A few of these tools upload the screenshot to a server, but I don't want that. Thanks.

I need a professional opinion on the matter

I live there so I don't have an objective view without bias.

Off Topic / (Blogland) I have no appendix and I must scream
« on: February 03, 2017, 01:51:42 PM »
It was 4 PM yesterday when I started looking up symptoms for why the lower right side of my abdomen was in such pain. It was 3 days since it started and I was getting worried.

Turns out if it was appendicitis I shouldn't eat or drink anything. I had to put a big delicious meal I cooked into the fridge and called up the doctorman.

I went there and he told me to go to the ER and get a CT scan to make sure if it was my appendix or not.

I was lucky as there was almost nobody waiting in the ER so I got through pretty quickly. The nurses gave me sweet delicious morphine and prepared me for a CT scan.

CT scan involved pumping me full of iodine, which apparently makes you feel warm and gives you the sensation of pissing yourself.

Turns out I was right. My appendix was trying to pull a fast one and have me killed. Nice try buddy.

An hour later I was in the operating room cracking jokes and getting filled with Mr. Anesthesia's nice sleepy drugs.

I woke up a moment later (from what I experienced) and I was being fed the most delicious saltine cracker in the world and pain medicine.

They wheeled me out to my Mom's car and we drove home and I went to bed. I woke up the next morning feeling peachy since my mutinous appendix has been taken out for good.

That is the story about how I become appendixless.

Big storm here in the bay area and it's supposed to last through Sunday. I already got completely wet outside three times today and that's not enough.

Off Topic / Is it possible to be edgy anymore?
« on: December 17, 2016, 10:46:59 PM »
Being edgy by wearing black and pretending to like metal music doesn't work anymore. And these days a lot of people like to be edgy by drawing pictures of asses and watching cartoons and calling themselves proud weeaboos/friends/furries/omelettes. So that leaves this question: how can anyone push the boundary these days? Is it possible to be legitimately edgy anymore? It seems like to be edgy you have to actually kill somebody or jump off a building.

« on: September 25, 2016, 04:21:47 PM »
I have my own website (not posting it here but it's a .com) and I want to get mail on it so I can stop using my gmail account. I have pretty much no idea how to accomplish this. I tried to look up a guide but I couldn't find anything.
