Good luck with that.
And as per usual, we suffered a loss. 10 wicket defeat, we just couldn't get them out. I don't expect you to understand, that's mostly for gamejunkie.

Criket reminds me a bit of Quizzlestick, but Quizzlestick isn't as confusing. So, why don't you just bowl the secret "points swap around bowl" when you are about to lose?

And you have every reason to be happy. My little "rant" isn't focused on the last Olympic Games, though. It's almost always the case, that "the usual suspsects" seem to recieve better ratings from the judges than other nations. But oh well, I better stop complaining. I don't care too much for gymnastics anyway. ^^
It's the same in professional football - the teams expected to win get longer to win it, despite there being a few minutes worth of incident, you'll see 4-5 minutes added on by the 4th official at Man. Utd and Man. City games, just so they can do something spectacular.
Yeah, but for ManCity is new. Even in Germany we know what "Fergie time" means. ;)
Fergie time, isn't that when David Beckham gets hit in the face with a football boot that Fergie has just kicked across the dressing room at him?

Not quite, even though that must have looked hilarious.

Best of all: Sir Alex complained about the german players after yet another lost against Bayern Munich in the Champions League. He said something like "they always complain to the ref, blabla, english players would never do that". Funny, since ManUtd players have a reputation for complaining to the ref.
Too many footballers complain to the referee. In rugby, the ref just moves it 10 yards further up the pitch for dissent. That would shut most of the pricks up.

Worst of all, when the whole team gathers around the ref. This is what Fergie complained about. Funny, because if you do a little research on google images then you can find pictures of United players doing the exact same thing. Even though Alex said that United players wouldn't do something like it.

Also: Everton 1-0 United. LOL!

That being said: I'm happy with the performance of team germany as well. Except for the swimmers who just where disappointing once again. But maybe it's a pattern: They disappointed in Athens, they won 3 medals in Beijing, they disappointed in London. So maybe they will win some medals again in Rio de Janeiro?
It'll be interesting to find out.
So, how long until the next summer games? Oh right, 4 years...
Yeah, we need to focus on Sochi 2014 now ;)

Well, at least "Sochi" is easier to pronounce than "Pyeongchang".

Haha, you're funny. :)

But it's still true. Or did some foreign companies build all the sport arenas? :P

I admit, I do watch stuff online. It's become a bad habit and I would like to buy DVDs. Well, sometimes they don't release it over here or they are ridiculously late (e.g. Futurama volume 6 DVD/blu-ray in March 2013) so I resort to watching online. I've watched too much Simpsons lately because of that but I will get the DVD box sets someday. I promise that!
Sometimes I do watch stuff online as well. I was watching nearly the first half of the first Futurama season when I was bored a few months ago (all in one sitting). But sometimes it's hard to find decent stuff to watch online. When I'm extremly lazy, I watch some Columbo online, even though I have all the seaons on DVD. But to watch those, I would've to go upstairs to get them, lol.
Well, I will resort to it if shit does get really stupid. For some odd reason, Metalocalypse season 3 DVD has gone out of stock entirely for region 2. That really makes no sense at all.

Only solution is to set your DVD player to Region 0.

Not having played for so long, I've gone a little rusty, tactics-wise.
So when was the last time you played standard?

Probably early this year - I can't cope and I "forget" to bring my cards, when people ask me to as an aside.

Yikes. Maybe trying some different/crazy/extreme tactics might help. Like letting your shitty bowlers or the Wicketkeeper bowl a couple of overs, lull those batsmen into a false sense of security or some whacko tactics like that. Even get your pace bowlers, bowling spin and your spinners bowling pace. You have to try crazy things when things aren't going your way. Anything is better than nothing. You can't keep losing big like that it will eventually become so demoralizing no-one will want to play.

We did - I came on to bowl and my pies were dispatched over the fence, just the same. I felt more sorry for poor Jasper - he's only 12 and he was being tonked as well. His figures were better than mine, just showing how good a bit of left arm spin can be.

As for the Hat-trick, good luck. I only ever got one whilst playing Indoor Cricket. But that's so much easier.

I meant a hat-trick of victories - both the 1st and 2nd XI won on Saturday and I wanted to complete the weekend, by winning as well.

I've taken a hat-trick outdoors - last year in the cup, so that's a nice side to things.

Well, I would use Kotaku. A website that gets away with doing non video game news like girls licking doorknobs and when something is video game related, it is like a sentence. For a website that is self-proclaimed "Gamer's Guide", I call bullshit on their bullshit. So yeah, if I could make a website better than Kotaku, I would be happy.

Good, so your standard deck is still in check. Well, until six weeks time when Scars of Mirrodin block is rotated out. Thankfully I'm already taking out cards from my deck that are due to be rotated out then.

Ugh, that reminds me of the LITERAL translation of the name "Dungeons & Dragons" on that one Simpsons episode (the one where Homer is back in College). That's even worse than those incidences where they translated "to swear" in the meaning of "to swear an oath" and not in the meaning of "swear words". Yes, "I never swear" CAN mean "I never swear an oath", but it doesn't make too much sense...

And because of high shipping costs (and long waiting times) it might actually be cheaper to just go to the cinema anyway.

Well, the shipping of a single DVD in a case can still be fairly cheap. I'm sure the difference between a CD and a DVD isn't a whole lot.

And I think Sony wants to bring back region codes for newer games and/or the PS4. Lame, I say.

They do that, I will not pick up a PS4. Oh who am I kidding, I probably will get one anyway. With the WiiU's lackluster game line-up so far and whatever the hell Sony and Microsoft do, it looks like I'll be moving more and more to PC gaming for good.

btw, is gfox still alive?

My life has been a bit slow right now. I did have the Manchester meet to look forward to next week but enthusiasm is starting to die out completely. You just can't organise an event without official support.

Messy organisation? I guess if everyone gathers in the same place at the same time is already a decent start.

As for Clock Day, I was hanging out with my friends instead of staying home for it so I missed out on most of it. No saves were claimed that day either.

I guess I was trying out the Co-Op mode in TF2. Pretty fun, but forgetting Clock Day was shameful!

As for jobs and such, any news?

It's not the covers, but the songs they chose and how they play it. Out of the whole discography I'd probably rate the cover album the worst. But it's still better than any Manowar album. :P

Meh, the region locking bullshit never made sense to begin with and Nintendo should be ashamed of themselves for being more tight on it. Sony on the other hand, region free for most games!
Most DVD players should have the option to set them to Region 0. But most of the time, this option is not explained in the manual. You could try to google a solution.
So how about a PS3? I mostly use that for DVD/blu-ray purposes.

If the DVD has a region code that doesn't match: Tough luck. The BluRay standard supports a region code, but most of the time it's not implemented. Time Warner for example, doesn't implement a region code on their BluRay releases.

Well, the shipping of a single DVD in a case can still be fairly cheap. I'm sure the difference between a CD and a DVD isn't a whole lot.

But it still can be a hassle to buy DVDs overseas.

And I think Sony wants to bring back region codes for newer games and/or the PS4. Lame, I say.
They do that, I will not pick up a PS4. Oh who am I kidding, I probably will get one anyway. With the WiiU's lackluster game line-up so far and whatever the hell Sony and Microsoft do, it looks like I'll be moving more and more to PC gaming for good.

PC gaming is DEAD! :P

Hello Mr. Haggard! How's life up there in Germany?

Cold and rainy, what did you think? :P
Actually, it has been pretty hot last week (30°C and above), but now it's a bit colder.

Your name should be listed already. I've probably already mentioned you for reaching 10k EXP so seeing a medal combination with that will be the first of its kind.

I assume he doesn't even care about this place anymore.

My life has been a bit slow right now. I did have the Manchester meet to look forward to next week but enthusiasm is starting to die out completely. You just can't organise an event without official support.
Messy organisation? I guess if everyone gathers in the same place at the same time is already a decent start.

Not messy, just not enough interest. Luis said that he'll probably run another meet in January in London. Keyword being probably...

As for jobs and such, any news?

Never really is. The country is full of bastards.

A Twist In The Myth. It isn't bad, although it's pretty weak.

And yet I'd still give it 8/10.

It's not the covers, but the songs they chose and how they play it. Out of the whole discography I'd probably rate the cover album the worst. But it's still better than any Manowar album. :P

By better than Manowar, you mean the album covers or the albums themselves? In all fairness, Iron Maiden are way ahead of Manowar in any way.

Don't worry, you'll see how our government will be a complete fuckup again for the nth time.
As long as it doesn't effect me, I don't care too much. :P

That's because you live elsewhere. That's fine, I'm counting down to either the whole country crashing or the next election/ My money's on the country crashing.

I've not bought a whole lot of DVDs overseas. Then again, with the region lock bullshit, I wouldn't want to buy anything.

Well, I would use Kotaku. A website that gets away with doing non video game news like girls licking doorknobs and when something is video game related, it is like a sentence. For a website that is self-proclaimed "Gamer's Guide", I call bullshit on their bullshit. So yeah, if I could make a website better than Kotaku, I would be happy.

It all sounds weird enough for me to be interested in it...

Good, so your standard deck is still in check. Well, until six weeks time when Scars of Mirrodin block is rotated out. Thankfully I'm already taking out cards from my deck that are due to be rotated out then.

I can't stand Mirrodin or any of the other Phyrexia etc decks. Ruined afternoons for me, that did...

Fergie time, isn't that when David Beckham gets hit in the face with a football boot that Fergie has just kicked across the dressing room at him?
Not quite, even though that must have looked hilarious.
Well, we only saw Beckham with a couple of sterrastrips across his eyebrow and The Sun went ape about how Fergie was a terrible cunt and so forth.
What I meant was: Must have been interesting to watch that in the changing room. Also, I thought Fergie IS a terrible cunt?

I wouldn't know - I've never met the guy.

So, how long until the next summer games? Oh right, 4 years...
Yeah, we need to focus on Sochi 2014 now ;)
Well, at least "Sochi" is easier to pronounce than "Pyeongchang".
"Puh-yong-chang" Simple, right?
And now do it in a voice like this.
"Pyeongggggg Channggggg!"

Long enough indeed. Things have been pretty good - I now have a driving license and my own car. I'm in university studying International Relations. And I want to volunteer for the World Cup in 2014. Stuff stuff stuff

Well, you'll pass if you say "The English are just being cunts to most of South America" ;) What with the Falklands, or Las Malvinas and Julian Assange and anything else that can be thrown at us. Something will stick.

How are you peoplez? Was Clock Day a huge disappointment again?
I'm well thanks. Hoping to put the cricket team back to the top of the table today. We'll see how that pans out, though :)
Worcester Warriors? :P

No, the Warriors are my Rugby Union team, that I support. Cookley Cricket Club is my local village team, that I play for and do a hell of a lot for, besides.

I passed 60,000 Medal Points.

Mostly due to those How To Draw submissions that have been surfacing the portal lately. I wouldn't be surprised if they got stripped of their medals sooner or later though...
