Everyday I have to run away from people and hide for a bit. I’m like a reverse solar panel, I need darkness and a few solitary moments to recharge.

I define love as being what I run away too and I always run to you.

I love you.

the worst thing about being shy and introverted as that you most of the time come off as cold and arrogant like you think you’re better than everyone else and thats why you don’t talk to people or hang out with them but it’s really the opposite its like you’re so uncomfortable with yourself that you don’t wanna share it with anyone else so you just dont and people think you’re an asshole but you’re actually just really scared

Yeah.

Correcting Internet DisInformation: The American Space Pen / The Russian Pencil

thank you for this.

And then from his initial investment of >$1,000,000, the Fisher Pen Co. was able to make a lot of money and grow the overall size of the U.S. economy and create lots of jobs.
So essentially a story that is supposed to be about government inefficiency turns out to be a story about how the U.S. government worked with a private company to make space travel safer while also stimulating economic growth.
The moral of the story is not that the Soviet Union was more efficient. The moral of the story is that by failing to allow private investment in innovation, the Soviet Union was doomed.
Incidentally, Paul Fisher, who invented the Fisher space pen, was a fascinating guy. He had this plan to eliminate income and property taxes with a progressive asset tax and even ran for President. And the Fisher Space Pen Co. is still a going concern, still employing people, and still generating a return on Fisher’s million-dollar investment.

I did meet a fake geek girl once.

We were at school and she started to casually drop in that she liked comics/games/”geek stuff”, at the time I was wearing an iroman shirt. Deeper into the conversation i found that she didn’t know what I…

A letter to 10 year old me:

Okay dude, this is coming in bullet point form because there is a lot of shit you need to take in and I know as well as anyone that you get bored really easily.

  • First off, stop bothering with your dad. He is a useless pile of crap who just disappoints you over and over and acts like a jackass all the time. Give up on him early and dedicate more of that time you now have to other things. Like making friends or learning a new skill (hint: try learning to write.)
  • In 2 years a nice doctor is going to offer you some medicine that he says you will have to take for a long time, just take it, okay?
  • Stop reading while you walk, or better yet, don’t start. You get hit by a bike doing this and break like, your wrist, thumb and some fingers.
  • Play more hockey, it is a good way to escape your entire family.
  • Make better friends with your sisters. You will regret having loose ties with them later in life, though forget Katrina she is a lost cause, you can pick-up ties with her later in life (you do btw).
  • Your nephew is great but there is this one time when you end up swearing quite badly in front of him that you regret most of your life. What I’m saying is, avoid his lego. You _will_ step on it, and we want to avoid that.
  • You play a lot of video games and when you are like 15 you will get validated for this, but I’m telling you early: You meet all your friends through videogames. Some of them are life-long friends. One ends up being your girlfriend. You will probably feel shitty being a nerd but, in the future it becomes your most valued asset.
  • Don’t date anyone in sixth form. They are all just as fucked up as you are and guess what? That ends badly for everyone. You’ll do it anyway because they are hot and you are a teenager but don’t say I didn’t warn you!
  • Don’t play World Of Warcraft. You just lose friends and a large chunk of your life.
  • Your mum, maybe at age 16-ish, will ask you what you want to do with your life, you have no answer but say maybe a writer, ignore anything she says after this and follow that goal. Otherwise you will get set back till you are 25 nearly, only just realising what you want to do with your life.
  • Don’t lend bomberman to Ollie Hudson, the dickhead steals it and you never stop hating him for it. Better to deny him the game and keep a friend.
  • When Katrina offers to make you pancakes… eggs.. anything really, refuse. You get sick every time because she is a terrible cook.
  • Tell your mum that your stepdad is a twat early. And don’t say “I told you so” when she leaves him. That just makes you look like a prick.
  • The best moments of your life are going to end with your mum screaming at you. Don’t hate her for it, she is just worried. Don’t worry about your relationship either, it works out.
  • Just don’t worry, okay?

It sounds bad but these are just some things that I want to fix, because life actually ends up pretty good for us. We have an amazing partner, a woman who is so smart and beautiful that you will often wonder at how you got so lucky. You end up with the best friends anyone could ask for and you just get more as time goes on.

Life works out great little guy. But seriously, and this is the most important thing I will tell you: Do not watch my little pony without your girlfriend. 

Seriously she never forgives you for that.

PurePwnage

PurePwnage, if you don’t know, was a Canadian web series, it was a mockumentary that followed the adventures of “Jeremy” a self proclaimed pro gamer and his brother “Kyle” was the one holding the camera.

If you haven’t watched any of it, please go and check it out, it is easily found all across the web but PurePwnage is probably the most reliable source as it is the official one.

Me and my friends watched this show, talked about this show, re-enacted moments from this show. We all played video games and were obsessed with our own games, I loved Age of Empires and played that shit every day, finding new ways to build epic maps. PurePwnage literally made me the gamer I am today, my sense of humour has been entirely moulded by this and other shows around the time.

I recently found out that there is a movie being made and I am overcome with memories.

I remember vividly downloading my first episode. I was on dial-up and the video size seemed huge to me (lol 200MB or so). You had to download the whole thing at once which seemed crazy, you’d have to download for hours! Side note: Streaming video had literally only just become a thing, Youtube hadn’t actually taken off yet, it was around but it wasn’t the giant website it is today.

So with the daunting prospect of downloading hundreds of megs just so I could be involved in the chat at school, I began the download.

The process was arduous and I am so thankful that someone had hosted a Torrent of the episodes because if they hadn’t I never would have managed the download at all. I was on dial-up and had to disconnect our phone-line to be able to use the internet. I started the D/L as soon as I got home from school and suffered constant interruptions as people called the house, wanted to use the computer, wanted to call their boyfriends (having 3 older sisters sucks seriously) or worst of all, told me to go to bed.

I was maybe 15 at the time and quite understandably my parents didn’t want me to stay up past midnight.

I didn’t care though, when my mum had fallen asleep and my stepdad had gone to work (he was a friggen milkman no word of a lie), I snuck back downstairs and trailed the phone extension cord all the way across the hall so I could dial in and finish the download.

I started the download on some random thursday and it finished early that friday morning at like maybe 3am. I stayed up all night to watch 22 minutes of some Canadian guys goofing off in front of a camera.

As I sat there, letting my cereal go soggy while I guffawed at the antics of FPS_Doug as he danced around and screamed “BOOM HEADSHOT” I didn’t care that I had stayed up late, that I had used up my internet allowance for the week and I had an entire weekend to get through.

I didn’t care that I had massive bags under my eyes or that my hair was a mess because I forgot to shower.

It didn’t matter because I had found something so special, I had found validation. I didn’t have to think that I was some weird-o freak, there were other people who were this into video games, so much so that they had made a show about it. Sure they were acting but to have any knowledge of the games they had to be players. They had to be as enthusiastic as I was.

I’ll never forget talking to my friends in English and laughing about FPS Doug and how amazing the show was. I’ll never forget pretty much the first time I had ever felt like I fitted in.

Sorry this is long but it was in my head and I had to get it out heh.

TL:DR; PurePwnage helped me fit in and feel accepted for the first time in my life.
