Wow, that's a pretty surreal story. Good thing you weren't hurt and they didn't steal anything though. That could have turned out a lot worse. Besides, chicks will dig this story, honestly.

More so with a few modifications, 'and then I kicked him to the floor. Then was all like 'you come near my house again and you're dead', then he ran off running and screaming'.

Ultimate plan for when burglers come... well.. just watch home alone :3

Also, beware of women. They may burn your penis off.

haha. Google doesn't help. Maybe it was just a hat pulled down? :P
More importantly, how could he see? Was his mate just there to guide him round?

I think he meant if they got caught ;)

I originally made a rant about how I thought the story didn't make much sense but I felt it was insensitive to your situation. I apologize for my questioning.

I misread what he wrote, I thought he said his brother was in his room.

It's a conspiracy i tells ya. I doubt he made it up, if he did, he would create a thread or something. I don't think there would be much aim to it. Sounds scary, i would personally have kicked there asses, or ran away screaming, both are plausible (maybe the latter more so :p).

Religilous

Anyone seen it, i just watched it, and it does give some great points about religion. It seems odd how people with PHDs and college educations still believe that someone could live for 3 days in a whale.

I understand it sounds a bit far-fetched, but at no point have I made myself look 'hardcore' in any way lol.

And about the balaclava, I mentioned it had no eye-holes because that was the most characteristic thing about them other than the first guy's voice. When the police asked concerning my statement about their appearance I knew very little as I can only recall totally black clothing with only the balaclava that was odd, I think he could see through the stitching as I can remember saying he was white as I'd seen his skin vaguely through the material. They asked for my attendance at court because there have been a string of robberies involving primarily TVs in my typically quiet area, my statement would put them in for longer if they get caught in the future. I hope they do, I'd happily extend their sentence.

I know a kid who's dad is a professor at Oxford for one of the sciences, I think it was Physics. I was pretty surprised when I found all the bibles in his house. Although you can't expect everyone intelligent to be atheist, it's just that for someone that has spent his entire live learning and basing everything he knows on scientific fact to then have faith that something exists without that, it's a bit odd.

A friend of mine recently bought a copy of the bible, qu'ran and mormon bible from amazon.. He's very atheist and just bought them for reference, I suppose.

Whoa, thats scary. It's always one of my first fears for someone to break into my house, the thing is, I live in a town of about 10,000 and the only major crime we've had happen in the past 20 years (I think) is getting the bank robbed.

As for how you took it: That would be way better than what I would do. I probably get on my knees and beg, and tell them they could take anything they wanted if they didn't kill me. If I ran they'd probably catch me and I doubt I'd have the balls to run.

Wow.

Why can't UGOplayer go back to the days of FlashPlayer where they don't hate animators?
The only reason I found NG is because I got so tired of UGOplayer.

Hello everyone,

Today is my birthday, and I finally released my top-secret, 52 Weeks Project! The Fifty-Two Week Project is an idea I've had for a while to create. For a whole year, I will be animating an animation a week until my 18th Birthday. I am currently 17, and as a starting point -- I decided to submit on my birthday. This is going to be a challenge for me, especially for thinking of 52 ideas for a whole year, but I'm sure it'll pull together nicely.

I'll be submitting every Wednesday until my 18th Birthday, so once the new duedate hits, I'll have to have the animation finished on time by that day. This gives me a week to complete an animation. I'll usually start doing the idea on Thursday, Sketch it out in my notebook Friday, Move it into Flash on Saturday, Than finish it all up by Wednesday and submit. This is what I'll be doing for a whole year. I will try to keep the ideas and animations unique, and not repetitive -- Hopefully, I can be as original as possible. Wish me luck, and I hope you enjoy the challenge!

I'll try to update this post with all the submissions, as well as website, which will be up soon with a compilation of the submissions as well!

*Sorry for the downtime of my site, I'm working on it! It'll be up in the next 24/48 hours! As well as the 52 Week compilation page!

Enjoy!

The Fulps are taking over Digg :( I used to be content with my 1-2 friends activity a day (my friend list is teeny) but now it's like.. 120+. Over 90 profile changes between Wade and Tom O_O I suppose it counts friend additions to that. Oh well, I have more profile views than Tom, I'm hardcore.

It's Thursday and I haven't been to a lecture yet.

I have to write a report on my crappy c++ game by tomorrow morning, yay

Digg is pretty broken.

AG, Kong, and bunch of other game sites use to be really Digg competitive since Digg drives a lot of traffic. It used to be difficult but not impossible to get Flash content dugg with a few friends and website fans digging an article. But when they switched up the site with the recommendation engine / different algorithm the smaller users got buried and suddenly we couldn't digg content any longer... neither could the big sites. It now comes down to whether a power Digg user finds our content and submits it.

A few months ago we had a game reach nearly 150 diggs in 24 hours... never got popular. So I'm interested in seeing if Tom can pull it off, it's near impossible these days.

HEY GUYS! So basically a reason that I haven't been working on exile since last saturday is because of THE IMAGE BELOW

Its the first realism picture i've made, and its F*CKING HUGE!!!

Here is the lineart that i drew originally, yes this whole sentience is a link, just click this sentience woo.

Comments/criticism accepted, im pretty bad with skin texture but i'll probably end up adding some crappy one eventually =3
