I am gonna tell you guys a folk tale, cuz I like folk tales. (I am already deeply enthralled)
It all started in a Pine apple under the sea, there lived a block of cheese, not just any cheese. You see this cheese/Block talked. And because he was different, everyone hated him. They hated him so much that they burned him at the stake, then they sung Amazing Grace. The End.
I am a nuclear scientist working out of an underground base in a IndustrialCraft modded world,
and this is my story.
I had always aspired to be a scientist, but Notch hadn't made it possible to go very far in this field.
"why don't you become a farmer, like your Uncle Bill?" my mother always said, but whenever my dad was home, and not off on one of his expeditions, he would say "why don't you come with me and the boys on a Dungeoneering expedition, my boy? I'm sure you'll pick up on it real fast, you were born to a line of great Dungeoneers." They were both sorely disappointed when I applied for a course in Redstone Technologies and Minecraft Physics.
I later got my degree and headed out into the world, wondering if I would be able to find work. I spent 8 days on the road, when i finally found a farmer, out in front of his house, muttering miserably as he worked his small flowerbed. I overheard something about "hand pains" and "damn creepers" and "scamming little sonofabitch", and when i asked him what all the fuss was about, he said to me, "I hate having to open my doors by hand, turning the knob and pushing and always having to make sure it's closed behind me. And when i finally hired a man to get a pressure plate working for me, he cost me tons of gold ingots, a whole 64! it was outrageous, and to make matters worse, every time a creeper or zombie or skeleton walked onto it, it opened wide and let them into my home. I've had to move everything several times due to creeper threats! I just wish someone had a right min and could find a way to let me open my door without all the shutting and turning and explosions." That gave me an idea. I sais to him, "Why don't you let me take a look at it?" and noticing the old pressure plate still hooked up, I quickly removed the plate, moved the redstone wiring around and placed a button by his door. I asked him if he thought that was better, and when he tried it he exclaimed "Brilliant! Why, youve solved the only problem I've had with thsi farm in years! My boy, what do I owe you?" and i got off with a few loaves of bread, 16 gold ingots and a promise that my name would be spread across the countryside as the "most brilliant redstone worker i've ever met."
But that wasn't good enough.
I wanted more.
So i found a man named Jeremiah Goldsmith, and asked him where i could find more sciences to follow. He told me "try the IndustrialCraft mod, it has some neat stuff in it." So i thanked him and went on my way, uploading the mod and quickly noticed, not alot seemed different. But i tried experimenting, and eventually came to realise, as a friend had mentioned in my early years of education, i could make a Nuclear Reactor. I experimented with recipes, creating generators of all sorts, machines and tools and even fancy armor, until i finally found it. Clad in my nanosuit, wrench and obsidian waiting in within my reach, i began to build a pool in which to hold my Reactor. I put some uranium into the beautiful machine, and a queezy green glow came about the watery shelter. I waited nearby the Reactor hut for my uranium to be refined, but it took a day before i realised "this'll take forever," so i began to mine for more uranium ore to feed my wonderful new toy.
After some time, I came across a dungeon, with a creeper spawner in it. I checked the chests for anything of value, but jsut found wheat and the odd string. i built a drowning trap around the spawner and waited at the bottom, hoping to collect some useful gunpowder. after some time i reached 15 gunpowder, and in my excitement ran upstairs to the crafting table in my sweet little abode i had built into a hillside.
But, in the process of creating some TNT, i thought, nuclear warfare. Why wouldnt that work? So, experimeting with the recipes for explosives, I spent days fiddling, and eventually came out with, a beautiful little box, looking much like the TNT i was so familiar with from the Redstone course, but with a neat little black and yellow (Wiz Khalifa) insignia on its sides. Not knowing how big the uranium reaction would be, i place the Nuke faar from my home, and set it off. what hjappened next was very peculiar, and wasnt expected at all. The box just sat for about 30 seconds, not the usual 4 or 5 you get from TNT. But then, from my little window in my home, I noticed why the timer was so longset. It was so you could get as far away as possible. The reaction was magnificent. It inspired me. since that day, i have gone on to experiment with the Nuke in as many ways as i can, its ore depletion ratio, its explosion length, its exact time limit, how useful ot could be in mining or warfare, et cetera, et cetera. I will not release the information on how to craft the Nuke, because i still remember the butterflies I got when I realised I had nailed the recipe. Enjoy Nuking, my fellow scientists and explosive addicts!

Hiroshi, Daisuke, Hana, and Cece made it to Australia, landing on a tall building, but what was waiting for them were a horde of flesh-hungry zombies. They pulled out their weapons and shot them all down. Unexpectedly, a zombie jumped Daisuke and bit his neck, opening a massive hole in his neck, dripping a lot of blood. He began to fade. Soon after he lost all his blood, laying on the ground, pale. They later looked around the city to see that even the virus has spread in Australia. Daisuke picked himself up, transformed into a zombie, slowly approaching Hana. Hiroshi quickly to his feet, grabbed the rifle and put it to his chest. He pulled the trigger, but there was no ammo. Daisuke smiled devilishly, pulled his hand in and bit it twice as hard. Hiroshi tried to push him off, but as he did, Daisuke's teeth scraped from his bicep to his wrist. A pool of blood dripped from the long cut. Cece jumped, traumatized from the puddle of blood that has fallen onto the ground. Hana rushed to Hiroshi's aid, but as she did, Daisuke grabbed and bit her in the back, holding her two arms. Hiroshi rushed to his feet again and pulled Hana back from her legs. They stretched Hana too far that her arms ripped off from her shoulder. Cece watched as it all happened, throwing up over the side of the building and a second time at Daisuke. Daisuke was blinded by it and started to spaz out, like it was toxic to him. Quickly, while he was distracted, Hiroshi grabbed Hana's dead carnage and whacked Daisuke off the building, and throwing her along with him. As the two sigh in relief, they head back into the chopper.
Cece tried to patch up the massive cut in Hiroshi's arm. Soon Hiroshi felt better, but felt dizzy after losing so much blood. He shook it off. Cece was relieved for not having to look at it again. Once they stepped out of the chopper, they looked down again to see the horde trying to break in the bottom floor of the building. Hiroshi thought and realized that there were explosives in the chopper. He ran to grab it. He then looked back down and back at the explosive. It said "C4". He was holding 2 of them. He threw one down and detonated it. Dead parts and blood splashed and flew into the air. Cece felt nauseous as she stared at it. Feeling dizzy after, she fell off. Hiroshi quickly jumped off to grab her and held her, securing her between his arms. Hiroshi landed on the ground first and splatted, for Cece to land safely. Cece stood up and saw Hiroshi, dead. Cece kicked his body in anger yet in sorrow. Now Cece roams Australia, alone, with no protection. Can she survive?
Depressed from the loss of 3 close people, and being the only one alive, she killed herself.
The planet Earth has been conquered and is now roamed by the undead, not a single human alive.
Police climbed through the window to find anarchic writing and binary scrawled around the walls. The room smelled of blood and fecal matter. Bodies were found piled in the attic. Each one had it's lips torn off. Eaten. Bite marks visible below the nose and above the chin. No trace of the metallic traxoline humanoid.
Autopsy of the queen shows large amounts of Radium in the shape of a smaller human throughout her body, outlining her own. Her lips still in place, but oddly green. (Look further.)
We have her back.
call it a job well done, boys.
this fucker is gone.
never again will we have to hear his solitary gurgles and screeches through his wooden door.
it's plans may still be unknown, but all i can say is:
don't fuck with the human race.
Redone rant on Homework.
Homework... the essential thing in a kid's life for education... at least that's what teachers would say.
I don't see the point in doing homework since you get enough bull in class. Why bring more work home with you? You'd be wasting time, when you can possibly accomplish something else instead.
Being in class makes you think hard enough already, why more work? Harder work may lead to stress, putting your health at risk. Wiki it. It's true.
Also, not only is it wasting YOUR time, but also the teacher's time. Correcting, grading, all that bull. It's their fault they're wasting their time doing that stuff, but apparently, they are. Don't blame us.
And the most important part, homework means more papers used, which also means more trees to be cut down, which will lead to the environment getting screwed over. Not to be a hippie, but homework is the cause of global warming. You think I'm kidding? I'm being logical here. Think about it.
These ARE the best reasons. Figure the rest.
What a fine to blog... after how many fucking months?
Well, I'm glad to be back and with a lot of free time on the weekend, it sure feels great!
Have you ever had that time happen where you were stuck playing a hella load of games and you just wanted to complete them all quickly? Yea, well I was... then I got through it.
Anyways... I'm done with Halo: Reach... sorta. I just need one more achievement which is Make It Rain, which you have to reach Lt. Colonel and get something that requires that rank. Speaking of ranks, I was able to get a peek at the ranks (and I'm sure some of you have, too). Hell, it's already made public so I don't see a reason you haven't seen it.
Speaking of games, I got the Sacrifice DLC for Left 4 Dead 2. The experience was orgasmic, yet shitty at the same time. The great part about it though is you get to play as the original Left 4 Dead survivors, and we got the popular No Mercy campaign that made the Left 4 Dead game pretty damn fun.
What happened in my life, you ask? Shit, I talk a lot about games, what ever happened to my life? Well, I do have one just so you know. I go to school, I run everyday, I got lots of friends (probably most of them are girls) and I do stuff. Heheh.
Throughout the days and weeks of torturous boredom of sitting in seat (which actually makes you fatter) and listen to stuff that you may never need in the future. Want my rant on homework? Look for it in the Modern Rants.
What do I do on the weekends, though... I sit and play games, have some yogurt at Yogurtland, I go to places, I sleep- late, and I eat at places and stuff.
Anyways, here's the shit of the days.

I recently arrived in Saigon. I was disappointed that I couldn't stay on the train for a bit longer, because of the AC. Being in the Taxi is much more comfortable rather than being outside. The community is very dirty, yet people still lives there. I'm a bit disappointed that I couldn't live in Nha Trang a bit more because my family lives there, but they will be coming to America soon.
That is all

For the readers information i am in no state to care about my typing and typos, you should be able to interprete it for yourself.
today I took the train to go to l;ondon and meet up with my sister for lunch. I got there rather late but then we went and had a thai at a place similar to wagamama's but Thai. I then took the tube to meet a friend in north london whom i had mett over the internet. I didn't telll my parents about this as i knew they would get really annoyed so i had to lie to them and i feel really guilty about having done that but we went to a mseum and on a walk and them i had to start the stressful jeourney home which was long. i am glad that i missed the tube strikes though as my dad is having really bad delays getting to work as he commutes. But then when i got home i had a well needed shower adn then supper.

I can assume that little to none of the community here knows of Rollercoaster Tycoon Three, the 3D rollercoaster simulator. Well for those of you that do, I'm sure you know of the fireworks program included with the game, the MixMaster. Through this ingenious program, avid players like I create spectacular pyro shows for one reason: pure enjoyment. It's much the same as...say...oh I don't know. Whatever it is you do to keep yourself entertained [for lack of a better phrase].
Anyway, an incredible amount of effort goes into each show made. The fireworks that come with the game are crap - if you decide to start playing, don't ever use the default pyro. When the game came out, some players thought about how shitty the fireworks were and thus began making their own in the AFE [Advanced Fireworks Editor -- extremely difficult to use]. Soon after, RCTPyro was born, which later became VirtualPyro [vPyro for short].
At vPyro is a 14-page downloads section devoted to custom-made RCT3 fireworks, some of which are made by the best RCT3 Pyro company around -- Ilyxr Dynamics.
They've single handedly captivated the world with their stunning shows and outstanding fireworks, most of which are exclusive to the company itself.
This past September, they released a contest to the vPyro community known as the "Ilyxr Dynamics Community Competition." 13 members entered, 2 were left at the end of October: a member named Vanderites [outstanding with RCT3 pyro] and I. In the end, I won the contest by 2 votes, and that show was titled "Battlefield," which to this day is regarded as one of the best out there. I don't know why...the more I watch it the more I hate it. But hey, it won me 2 of Ilyxr's unreleased fireworks packs.
Shortly after completing Battlefield, I co-founded a fireworks company with a friend of mine, and we became known as "Fyre Teknix." We've recruited DreadLord82, our Pyro Major, Conrail92, our Custom Scenery Major, and most recently DracoStraybyrn [Matt Enloe] as our Graphics Major. I am Show Constructor and MadPyroMan is the Head Honcho of FyreTeknix.
So now, without further ado, I introduce that show: Battlefield ~
Post whatever questions you might have. Hell, call me crazy...it won't bother me

Yeah, I was extremely sleepy on my first day of school. Based the fact that I only slept for about 1 - 2 hours. I ended up sleeping around 1:30 a.m., woke up around 2 a.m., tried to sleep and woke up again around 3 a.m. For some reason, I couldn't sleep at all. I was really hyper for some reason. Since I still haven't read my summer reading book, I decided to read a little of it. I kind of thought it would make me fall asleep or something. Well, it didn't. =[ So, I ended up staying up with barely any amount of sleep. I thought I could handle it, boy, I did. But it was kind of hard. >_>
Anyways, after 7:30 a.m., I decided to head out for the bus stop, so I can go to school, duh. The bus came at a decent time, but it ended up taking a little too much time to get to my arrival destination, so I became late on my first day. Every freshmen were suppose to go to the auditorium by 8 a.m., I arrived at 8:15 a.m., so I didn't know where to go. I ended up following another freshmen to the area that was located around the lunch room, because there were a lot of people there. Turned out they were Sophomores+. The adults yelled at us for being late and told us to go to the other side of the building, we did. Luckily, I didn't miss my division.
My division class teacher seems to be a cool guy. And my division classroom is 259. He talked generally about high school crap and Lane Tech junk. I wasn't sleepy yet, so I remembered them. After he talked for few minutes, he made us find our lockers. I found it ridiculous. My locker room was located below my division class's floor and a few minutes walk away from that. >_> Good thing was, it's near my first period and home room is on my third period. After we found our lockers, we were supposed to return to the class room. We were given our ID cards, a Lane Tech wrist band, and a Lane Tech pen. Apparently they have a obsession with ID cards.
After home room, we were suppose to go to our first period class, which was room 133. I was originally supposed to have drafting, but I ended up taking Art Appreciation. I kind of wanted to take drafting, but whatever. Art Appreciation is easy. XD At least that's how the teacher made it sound like. She said that all we'll do is learn some words, draw some pictures, etc. Nothing big, nothing small. =p As it was our my first, we didn't do anything but attendance.
After first period, we had second period, located at room 325. XD My second period class is Algebra, yay. : D I love Algebra, and my second period was Algebra, so I was extremely happy around that. Not to mention the fact that it's pretty easy to get to from first period. : D Anyways, the sitting set up seemed kind of odd, and from what I observed, the teacher seemed cool. I forget if we had assigned sits that she'd give us the next day or something, but I don't think we had assigned sits. Either way, she said basically the same things as my first period teacher. =p Algebra class wasn't bad. Oh, I take honors, so yay. Only real disappointment is, we do easy Algebra on the beginning.
Next I had World Studies, which is room 312. I love history, so like this class by default. =p The teacher seemed cool. He just seemed to talk a lot. O.o He says that we'll be learning histories on Europe and Latin America for our first semester, then Africa and Asia on our second semester. He said we'll be skipping Canada, United States, and Australia cultures. I was tired of learning about United States history, and I didn't care about Canada or Australia histories, so I didn't care. Anyways, he ended up repeating what my previous class teachers said. Except he said more things on reading. I have a feeling I will like this class.
After World Studies, we have Lunch, located at room 007. It's actually the middle of the first floor. There was a school store right next to it, so I bought my gym uniform. It cost $17. I was way too sleepy to think about food, so I didn't feel like eating. I just decided to sit down and read a little more on my book. Then out of no where, a person comes up and asks me randomly, let me see your ID card. I thought to myself, "huh?". I just showed him my ID card, he seemed to know me. It took me a few seconds to remember his name (I'm lying, I asked / looked at his ID card). It was kind of easy to remember after thinking about the fifth grade. XD He was in my fifth grade class in elementary. Eh, we talked for few minutes and he went back to where he was sitting. I just waited out the time for lunch period. Felt like forever, to be honest. After that, I had to get to my fifth period class. We had to get into a line to get out, it was messy. I was kind of sleepy at the time, and then I heard some lady call my name. So I looked, it was Eileen from eighth grade. I'm not a person that likes to talk / talk loud, especially when he's sleepy, so I just turned back. I just assumed she's not mad at me, but, you never know what would happen if you ignore a girl. =0
Alright, next class was Computer Information Techno, located at room 335. Eh, I have a feeling this class isn't going to be my favorite. Even though I chose Computer Information Techno as my elective. Mostly by the fact of me going there right after Lunch period. There's a gigantic line after Lunch, so it gets kind of troublesome to get there fast. I ended up being a little late. But a lot of people came in late, so whatever. Well, Computer Information Techno class seemed rather like the computer class from elementary. Difference is, we have text book, and I assume a lot more work to write. Despite that, I hope it's enjoyable. =p
Okay, next class was 208. Gym. Apparently there are 3 groups separated for this. =0 I wasn't excited by the time I got to this period. I was extremely sleepy about this time. Also, the room was extremely hot, despite the size of the gym. Like all other teachers, he basically said the same thing. Also said that it's recommended that we buy a swimming suite close to fall, because it's hard to purchase one around winter (the time we begin swimming). He took attendance, made some jokes, and the bell rang.
Next class was Survey Literature at room 352. Oh boy. I was ready to faint from sleepiness here. And the intensified sun in this classroom didn't help. The room was very hot. Either way, the teacher talking carried on, after we were given our sitting sits, of course. The teacher seemed pretty interesting, she actually talked about herself. XD She said that she was raised in Ohio, graduated high school there, and moved to another city because she started to dislike the alike-qualities of the people there. After that, she went to London and got her masters at British Language. At least that's what I can remember. XD Anyways, this was about the first class that gave homework. But it's a writing assignment, so I don't remember care. =p Just a response to a prompt, nothing really special.
After Survey Literature, it was my last class. Biology, located at room 431. Well, this class is a definite bitch to get to. XD There's a stair way that leads to there right next to Survey Literature class, but that leads to the band room, and apparently there's no cutting in. I just ran back to the other stairs, which happens to be on the other side of the building. >_> I'm not sure how I would get to this class right on time every day. Eh. Either way, I got there before attendance. Oh God. This class was on the fourth floor. It was omega hot and I was ready to fall asleep on the spot. Holy crap. I was sweating so much that my arms were wet. Either way, I love science, so I probably will like this class, just excluding the time. >_> The period teacher started the class with defining basic words of science. Observation and inference. After that, she told us to write observations of what we saw as she carried a cylindrical item across the room. She burnt it and ate it after that. Just made us all go, what the fuck? She ended up making it a homework. XD After that, she showed us a mutated lice that she ate and drank the water that they were inside of. I felt like raising my hand and be a smartass at this point, but I was kind of sleepy, so I didn't bother. And I'm talking about the eating in science class thing. XD After this period, we were told to stack our chairs on top of the tables we were sitting on and that we were dismissed from school, unless someone had ninth period.
This was hell. Waiting for the bus was complete hell. There were a lot of people waiting for the bus and the sun was trying to kill us. It was really sharp. My clothes were burning when I touched it. D= I was ready to drop dead at this point, and the sun was trying to tell me that I was dead on my fifth period class. Oh yeah, I saw another girl from elementary while I waited for the bus, in the bus, and got out of the bus. I didn't say hi to her either. I figured she didn't notice me. The bus took its sweet time getting to my stop, there was a Seven Eleven next to the bus stop, so I got a Sluppy and went straight home. I was thinking nothing but that sweet bed that I can sleep comfortably on. Christ, my grasp on reality felt horribly messy, everything felt, looked, smelled, sounded, and tasted like a dream. I somehow managed to get home. I was extremely happy.
After I got home, I turned on the AC, closed the window curtains, got a bottle of water, took a shower, and turned on the computer. I got signed on on MSN and chatted with Sam and Rosie. Apparently Sam didn't sleep early either. XD As I was chatting, I signed online SxR and replied to few threads. On the last thread, I started to see things that I typed go blind on my eyes. When you go half blind because you're tired, you usually go sleep. XD I just went to sleep and woke up around 7 p.m. That's when I started this. The girl that I didn't say hi to near the bus stop seemed angry at me. =[ Nah, she said it was fine.
It seems I wrote a lot. I'm so not editing this.

Well, after an agonizingly long downtime for SxR, it's back up, and I feel like I don't know where to start!
Actually, yes I do: http://xobsidianroses.livejournal.com/
I have an LJ and I don't feel like having more than one blog, so, I'll be posting there.
Feel free to add me. :]
I bought a new Toshiba laptop with Vista on it, I really prefer XP to Vista now but it's still good, and tbh Vista is better visually and graphically. I also like the part about when you hover around the tabs in taskbar you can see small pictures of the application and what's happening. Sometimes I read "k" and "lol" stuff without having to open the window. xD
It wasn't a waste of money, and one more genuine Windows copy on that made it easy for me to update.
