Black Friday

  Short post today, but i thought i would just make a note of something. I went to my local mall yesterday to see if i could get anything worth while in all the black friday business, but instead i got a lesson...People are greedy... I saw grown woman run through a child knocking the small boy to the ground just so she could get a video game for her son...At some are doing it wrong. I think ill stick to shopping online.....

Neighbor Troubles Again

   So if you have read my earlier post, then you know that i have a neighbor who has a crazy ass wife. I hardly know this neighbor by the way. We met a few weeks ago and ever since he comes to my house when his wife gets all nuts. The first "event" was his wife actually stabbing him in the stomach. I made a post about it if you want more details, but on Tuesday i was sitting at home about to go to sleep when i hear a knock on my door. I already knew it was a bad idea to open it, but i felt bad. Of course it was my neighbor. This time he didn't have stab wound, but he just said he wanted to hang out.
      We hung out for 30 minutes or so....It was mostly talking about his crazy ass wife. Anyway we were talking and i hear a knock on my door AGAIN. Well i open it again and two cops are standing there. I guess his wife called them or something ,but he went to talk to them for a bit. Then i heard a knock on my back door. That one was a little confusing. Well i got and open it and there is nobody there.

   After a small search around my backyard the two cops found my neighbors wife. She started yelling about something, but i wasn't interested. This isn't really the wildest story ever, but they took her away to jail AGAIN. The reason this is so strange is the fact that i have never met his wife. So it was really really creepy that she knocked on my door.

  I'll be sure to keep you updated on the creepy wife situation though...

Clayton Daniels

    So i was going to come on here and rant about Skyrim today, but then i saw a great story. This one is just too amazing to pass up. It is a small story about Insurance fraud and the most intelligent family i have ever heard of!
     It all began in 1997 when Clayton Daniels was found guilty of sexual assault on 2 minors. Molly Daniels(His wife) was for some reason still in deep deep love with him and decided to hatch a plan to get him off the hook. The plan was to fake his own death and start a new life together! Well just so they would have some cash Molly took out a $110,000 dollar life insurance policy on Clayton. Nothing seem suspicious so far!

    After the life insurance policy was taken care of they went to find a body. So off to the local cemetery they went! The obvious choice was to find someone around 6feet tall and 270 pounds to match Clayton, but they went with a little old lady who had been dead for over a year. 

     So they lit the car a flame and put the rotting remains of Ms Doubtfire in the front seat! Now they had to get the real Clayton somewhere safe and calm so he could lay low for a while. How about his house!? Clayton Daniels Grayed his hair and grew a mustache, he came home and told everyone around the neighborhood that he was Molly's new boyfriend!

    Well the cops arrived on the scene and trumped the case right away. They found no skid marks that would prove the crash happened, and they found that the fire was lit with lighter fluid and the front seat was the hottest part of the fire. BUT WAIT! Medical examiner Vladimir Parungao said he found small pieces of "Penis and urine" in the lap of the body. Parungao was taken to task by Burnett County officials for suspicions of laziness, doubting he performed an examination. Either that or Clayton Daniels won't be having a fun time taking a piss in jail.

Shock Fight

     So i was reading about this wild "sport" that a very few amount of people are actually taking part in. A shock fight is MMA, but with 3,000,000 volt stun gun attached to your gloves. I don't really know who would take part in such a crazy and dangerous "sport", but the creator of this sport Michael Alexander calls it "the ultimate art of extreme fighting." There are no rules and no judges, just two guys and a couple of stun guns. Here is a small video of a shock fight.

   If you are looking to take place in an official shock fight, then look outside of the U.S. and most other countries for the most part. Because it is banned in all 50 states and most counties, i don't see the fighters making a huge amount of money. Shock fights just seem ridiculous to me, and i refuse to see it as a "True warrior's test", but if you like the idea of punching someone with a stun gun on your fist.....Go for it! As for me, i think i'll stick to normal sports for now.

Simulated Mars Mission

   Today i read about a simulated mission to mars that had been going on for about a year and a half. I guess i'm a little late on this then, but i thought i would give my opinion on it. So three Russians, two Europeans, and a Chinese man were locked in this capsule for 520 days. This capsule had different locations for the simulated mission.

  •  Medical Module: A cylinder that acted as the laboratory. It was also the sickbay were a crew member to become ill
  • Habitable Module: The main living quarters. this area has beds, a galley, a social area, and the main control room
  • Landing Module : This was for a 30 day landing operation where three crewmembers visited the "surface of Mars"
  • Utility Module: Has four compartments, to store food and other supplies, to house a greenhouse, a gym,and a refrigeration unit
  • Surface Module: This was use to walk across the soil and rocks of Mars, crewmembers put on Orlan spacesuits and passed through an airlock.

    The crew also had limited communications with the outside world and messages had a rough delay of about 25 minutes to reach the crew members from the outside.

      The capsule couldn't simulate everything obviously. A mission to mars would take about double the time(about 3 years), Living in a weightless environment which could cause muscle deterioration, Space radiation that could cause serious health issues, and the surface itself would be much different than simulated.

   So a mission to mars is not actually in the near future either. A mars mission would take around 20 years to actually get off the ground. So one thing that i can't seem to find out is either they are training these people for this event or just testing the human body as a whole. I mean having these people train for a year and a half is nice and all, but for twenty years they will be out of the conditions and they will age. As far as training the human body goes, i would say this is a major event for space travel. This makes us well on our way to reaching the red planet but is it worth it? We as a whole put a mass amount of money into space travel, but i think its just part of the human condition to want to know more. 

 My personal opinion is that if we want to send people to mars, then the training should start right now. Not these people who seem pretty old( I don't know the age of the people), but young people who WANT to spend 20 years of their lives exploring where no man has gone before. 

    Space travel is a very big part of our society now. Some people seem to think it is a waste of money, while others seem to think we should be putting more money towards it. I personally think that we shouldn't give up on space travel. There are so many new things we could learn from space.Well whatever you think one things for sure, Space is full of wonders that we just don't know about. 

   Maybe one day aliens will come to earth and share everything they know with us about space travel, but until then we have to take it upon ourselves to see what is out there.

The Season of Games!

     So every year around this time something magical happens...GAMES! The holidays have to be my favorite time of year for the massive amount of games that come out. So i decided to name a few that im most looking forward to getting my hands on.

      The Legend of Zelda: Skyward Sword 

    This one is a no brainer for me. I've played Zelda since i was 3 years old. Most zelda games have a long and very nice story. I'm not a huge fan of the motion control, but i think i can get over it for this game. Nintendo promises that this will be the biggest zelda game to date, and i for one can not wait. It seems the have the rich story line and colorful characters I've come to expect from a zelda game with a few new things tossed in the mix! The game is set to release 11/20/11!

     The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim

    The Elder Scrolls games have always had something unique about them. I'm looking forward to three things :the action, customizing, and of course the story. The game itself looks beautiful and i was a huge fan of Oblivion and Morrowind. The game is set to release 11/11/11 and i've got my pre order all set.

    Call of Duty Modern Warfare 3

  Last but not least is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 3. I am no the biggest 1st person shooter fan in the world, but i do love multiplayer, and the one thing Call of Duty is known for is the multiplayer. I've played the campaigns of 1 and 2, and while i enjoyed the story i never really got sucked in. I'm sure ill play the story once, but i can not wait to be back in team deathmatch!  The game comes out 11/8/11, So i'll see you online!

   I'm sure ill play a lot of games this holiday season ,but these are just 3 i can not wait to get my hands on!

Centralia, Pennsylvania

  A little late but i thought i would post my idea of a very creepy place to spend Halloween night. I live just outside of Pittsburgh so this place is actually within driving distance for me. Basically if you have never heard of the place Centralia is a small borough in the state of Pennsylvania. The thing that makes this small place a scary hot spot for Halloween is the fact that underneath it is a raging mine fire that has been going strong since 1962. Its unknown how the fire started but people have theorys. The main one is that a group of firefighters were given the task of destroying a near by landfill. They lit the fire as they did every year, but this time the fire wasn't put out right.

    The population has slowly dropped since 1962. Today the population is now 10 down from 1000 in 1981. If you go to Centralia the one thing you will notice is that some roads seem just fine and paved over, but some are all cracked,ruined, and smoke billows from the seams of the roads. Pennsylvania Route 61 has some abandoned roads doing just that. A few roads are even hot to the touch.

   Spending a night in Centralia to me would be like living a night in the game Silent Hill. The place is spooky and is just strange all together. Even looking down at a Google map of the place makes shivers go down my spine!

      So sure the outside is creepy and you would have to pay me a large amount of money to stay there for a night, but think about inside the mine! Readings show some of the hot spots at  187°F! Of course most parts are collapsed plus the Carbon monoxide and heat would kill anyone, but the thought of being down there for even a minute is a very eerie thought.


    Centralia at first glance may seem like a normal ghost town  (If there is such a thing) but my advice is that if you are looking for that eerie feeling or chill down your spine then take a walk around some of the abandon roads a night. I know i wont.

Dungeon Defenders!

   So i didn't post at all yesterday and i thought the best thing to talk about was the reason why. My buddy has gotten me into a game called Dungeon Defenders. If you have ever enjoyed ANY tower defense game you will like this game. On the other hand if you like being in the action this game is for you as well.

        Steam gives this description of the game: "Dungeon Defenders is a Tower Defense Action-RPG where you must save the land of Etheria from an Ancient Evil! Create a hero from one of four distinct classes to fight back wave after wave of enemies by summoning defenses and directly participating in the action-packed combat!"

   This game will make you look at the clock in surprise. If you have 3 good friends who feel like dishing out the low 15$ price tag, then you can just forget about any plans you have that day. This game is addicting and with content being added to the game monthly there is no reason to pass it up.
