Well today it hit me. How it hit me, well that is a really funny, but painful, story. You might be wondering what hit me? Well this idea of a random topic, which I will be writing about every Wednesday. Well a few other things hit me today , let's just say the floor is quite hard and pain was an old friend who came to visit.
The story all began this morning. Sleeping on the couch last night was a dream come true. It felt like sleeping on air, the couch was soft and fluffy with a set of amazing pillows, one for my head and one for my legs. I slept so comfortable last night, 12 hours of beauty sleep, what more could a guy ask for?
After that wonderful night of sleep, my shin met the soft corner of the cof
There is a vocal group of gamers out there on the internet that believes that gameplay should always be the most important aspect of a game and I’m wondering whether that’s true or not. So I decided to take a look and analyze the top rated games of the generation and see if I could agree with them or not.
Using this generation alone some of the highest rated and loved games of the generation (by metacritic) are as follows
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild - 97
Persona 5 - 93
Uncharted 4 - 93
MGS 5 - 93
Witcher 3 - 92
Bloodborne - 92
Having played all these (most to completion) I can say that only two of these have a gameplay focus which are Bloodborne and MGS5.
So if you saw last episode, you know i was definitely strugglin' a lil bit.... but that's not gonna stop me from getting back on for another video! Unfortunately things didn't get much brighter today either though haha. Enjoy these L's, from me to you!
You can be trained to read a delivery ticket. You can be trained how to rip the yellow slip from the ticket and keep it until check out. You can be trained how to break down a soda machine and properly sweep the lobby at closing time. You can even be trained to take traveler’s checks from someone at the Days Inn that has no concept of how much he’s slowing down your night and thus costing you money, but you cannot be trained to be a pizza guy. The Way of the Pizza Guy is reserved for the mastering of a select few.
Just as one cannot train to be an artist, because being an artist is an art, otherwise they wouldn’t call it art, there is an art to being a Pizza Guy. Well, not really, but there is a seventh sense. The sixth sense is intuition and the seventh sense is The Way of the Pizza Guy. It’s even rarer than intuition. It’s not something you learn
So, I got a sub to a
geekbox. Why? Am I such a geek?
Why not? :)
I'm using this opportunity to post an unboxing post on Steemit. Let's discover together what's in the box!
It's time to OPEN!. Shazam!!
Eh, Ok, not impressed but meh.
Not So Common Sense, Lesson 1: How to Hack the Law of Attraction
What do consciousness, the law of attraction, and sacred geometry all have in common? They all hold infinite potential and possibility!
However, going into the lengthy descriptions about sacred fractals and abstract concepts of existence is not my intention here. Rather, I'd like to discuss how to use them to hack the Law of Attraction...
Why Hack the Law of Attraction?
The desire for more, better, and different is a human condition. The Law of Attraction allows us to feel like we are, in essence, the ones in control of our experience. For anyone new to this idea, the Law of Attraction advocates the belief that entertaining negative or positive thoughts will attract negative or positive experiences, respectively.
As I travel the planet and simu
A good friend of mine, Andre sent me a Video with this line attached:-
Many years ago I tried my hand at Water Skiing at the Vaal River near Vereeniging, I wish I had a film of that! I fell forwards,
backwards , sideways , got dragged along upside down by a little boat with a huge motor on it , capable of over 80 mph !
I have been trying for over an hour to load it but -wrong format!
So I used Youtube to find something similar, and in the process realised it was not windsurfing but mainly Kiteboarding.
Splat! Did an angel come to an untimely end against our living room window that fateful day? Thankfully not. African doves had a fascination with our house windows or what was behind them; we never got the opportunity to ask which. Some, not I, would say it was (spoiler alert) a miracle that they somehow survived.
In our previous home, we regularly saw evidence of doves colliding with our windows, and sometimes heard the impact - thwak! boing! those were big picture windows - which sounded like they were going full speed, yet miraculously we never found a corpse or even a stunned bird on the ground. Surely a bird with little crosses in its eyes, just like in the cartoons? No...sniff.
Here was a typical episode - even though you can see the window needed a full cleaning, the poor old dove gave it a good clobber with its right wing. I was in another room at the time and heard the impact, but found only this eerie angel wing as evidence of a close encounter of the glass kind. My best guess i
STOP THAT RIGHT NOW!
My daughter jumped. I jumped. In fact most people in ear shot jumped. It was a loud shout and we all looked over to see what the disturbance was.
A fierce and red faced woman was hauling at her son's arm. She was employing that whipping a rope technique which seemed to be causing him a bit of discomfort. He looked to be about four.
He was standing next to a display with some free crackers on it to try. The temptation was obviously too much and he tried to reach a hand up again.
His mum (I think?) grabbed him by the scruff of the neck and shouted spittily next to his face that he had better
Everyone who is following my blog know the series How to trick your mind. It´s about finding simple ways how to trick your mind in order to live a happier, more powerful and relaxed life. Since I am a big fan of illusions, I decided to write a post about optical illusions and how they try to trick your mind!
Optical illusions can affect almost all aspects of seeing. There are depth illusions, color illusions, motion illusions and a few more. In all these cases, the visual system seems to make false assumptions about the nature of the vision, as can be shown by the use of other senses or by removing the factors that trigger it. I personally love the challenge to find the truth behind all those illusions. I want to begin with a very popular illusion an
Here is a fun game you can play anywhere, anytime, with anyone. I call it,
Count to 16, although the name is slightly misleading. The reason I call it this is to give the impression that the game is easy to learn, which it is.
The game goes like this:
Now I will show you how I usually present this game to someone who is not familiar with combinatorics.
Hello, do you want to play a game?
Sure, what is it?
It's called, Count to 16. It's really easy.
How does it work?
Me: "Okay, there is a pile of pennies. Each of us have pennies
Greetings loyal followers.
I have a question for all of you.
Those scumbag Rebels simply won't give up. They continuously put their sick agenda over Imperial security. Their dedication to spreading fake news is second only to their dedication to kissing their sisters. This latest example is by far one of their worst attempts yet.
First of all, they are clearly putting words in both my and my stupid boss's mouths. Normally I would never defend the actions of my incompetent and putrid
master, but even he isn't stupid enough to say the things those scumbags claim in this phony transmission.
As mentioned earlier, I always document every new whiteboard drawing I leave for my coworkers to find in the morning.
I'm just going to chuck in here some of my personal favourites..
Many Steemians know my stance on begging. However, I was told that I should clearly state the current issue that I am facing.
I have been self-employed for over a year and half...after escaping corporate america. However, this was not the only obstacle that I have escaped from in my life. While I have been fortunate enough, it took all my reserves just to escape a lifetime of abuse and resettle in Iowa, with Zeph and Chienchien.
I was averaging about $2,000 per month -- Zeph was hospitalized, at the beginning of May, and then two weeks later, I was super sick for the next 4 weeks.
This all being said, I am moving forward with my projects because I am a woman of my word. However, I received a court eviction notice today and have been given until August 2 to pay $862 USD to avoid eviction.
No, I am not asking for donations. Yes, I would really love it if you would buy a shirt or a mug because we all would love to buy an Upvote at sometime or another.
Well, here it is -- @tecnosgirl did a great layout for
What do you think?
In these situations. Let's fix forward.
The trainer looked at us all expectantly. Look at me!! He was mentally screaming at us. I used a buzzwordy phrase!!
We all sighed at the same time, trapped in a room with a buffoon who was teaching us the fundamentals of lean project delivery.
Perhaps he would have been best served teaching us the fundamentals of time dilation. After all, it felt like the training had been going on for some days. Yet sadly, my watch informed me it had only been an hour.
I noticed the trainer dude had frozen mid-grin, leaning forward trying to catch all of our eyes.
I think he was waiting for a round of applause? It didn't arrive.
He decided to carry on. His spiel now moving on to how we could positively adapt to shifting sands.
Shifting sands, like a desert? I idly wondered how he would positively adapt to a good punch in the neck.

I am loving all the STEEMIT outreach in the community I have been able to do, since I received this shirt awhile back from @papa-pepper.
I have worn this shirt out every single day since I have received it and people are asking me about it. I see them looking at it and opens doors to discuss Liberty, Steemit, Crypto.... and government nonsense.
Last week in Costco, I was wheeling thru the store in the motorized scooter I have to use most of the time now due to the injuries from the car running me over 18 mths ago and the state burying my file.
I saw a younger guy nodding at me walking towards me, and when he got close enough he was like:
Nice Crypto shirt, dude!!
It started out as such a normal day… well a normal day for a STEEMhead on vacation anyway. The plan was simple enough, just take a drive to the beach with a few of the kids and have a nice afternoon in the surf and sun. Of course some content creation was also on the menu, as it should be for a 24/7 STEEMhead, but, other than that, all was pretty normal.
