How to win Rock/Paper/Scissors

by on

Choose Rock.

Seriously, through my extensive experience playing there is about a 75% chance they will start with scissors.

Go test it out and youll find it's true.

And then I find that choosing scissors second usually wins--but that's less certain--and after that it's all in the air.

-I actually just looked up "how to win rock, paper, scissors" and it said always go scissors because most people choose rock. That's crap. Or maybe the trick is that you have to tell the person beforehand that you're really good and you always win--so then they if they were initially going to go rock they change to scissors. But honestly, I win this game way more than I should according to probability and it seems like everyone I play always go scissors first--like it's the clever choice.

Ah, spring break...

Nothing like shoveling snow that really puts you in that spring spirit. :evil: I hate Wisconsin.

youll never get a job....

by on

According to the everyday college student I'll never get a job unless I major in something like medicine, engineering, business, or law....... I'm so sick of hearing this crap. You know what, you can take your boring degree and shove it. I started my freshman year in engineering because I beleived that **** after suffering through the depression of studying that crap I realized I would rather wait tables for the rest of my life than become an engineer. I'm sick of hearing it. I'm not going to start my adult life by studying something I'm not interested in just so I can feel like I wont have to worry about getting a job. Nope, I'm done with that. I would rather take the risk and do something I have a passion for....no regrets.

That's been bothering me for years. Thought I'd rant to see if it makes me feel better. It did, a little.

Best part about Gerstmanns closing video?

Watching how his crazy hair styles have changed over the years.

I don't have anything new to say about the events that have transpired with this site. People got nuts and the insane cascading power of theinternet was seen. The drama that I witnessed from long time visitors to this site like myself was ridiculous. They reacted more so than the actual editors who knew Jeff personally. I mean,my goodness, I've been coming to this sitedaily for at least 6 years, a huge chunk of my life, and I certainlyfeel connected to the people that I watch and read about day in and out, but I also have a life of my own to worry about. The circumstances were very unfortunate, I'm really going to miss Jeff like I still miss Greg,Rich, and anyone else who brought their talent to this site that I vist everyday, but I'm not about to treat the sitelike it'smy wife who just committed adultery on me after 6 years of marriage. Jeff isn't dead. Gamespot isn't finished. And I'm not going toleave this site forever and ever to make a statement to some CNET executive that I don't like what happened, when my knowledge of the events is not complete.That's literally likeshooting your friend in the face because he didnt stop you from catching the flu. Uncalled for and immature. I can't imagine how some of these people deal with real personal issues in their lives when they have this sort of reaction to a website they visit. And is going to other sites really going to solve anything? If the repercussions of the power that publishers have on game journalism is true now that it has been given attention, will any other site you go to be immune to this? Do you really believe this pressure hasnt existed for as long as there has been critics of mainstream products?

The most unfortunate aspect of all of this for me is that I'velost respect for a lot of community members who I've been conversing with for years.

NEVER take organic chemistry. Ever. It will steal away ever bit of self-esteem you have left.

College again. new town.

Well, today was my move-in day. It was pretty hectic and overwhelming, and I still feel anxious about the whole situation. Having a single room is much better for the most part and especially once my classes actually start and I need to study, but right now theres a little loneliness. I really didn't get any chance to meet people in my dorm since I wasnt in my room all day, and then we had a floor meeting and it seemed like everyone already knew each other because some have been here for almost a week already. Oh well. I got a football game tomorrow to look forward to. Then classes will start pretty soon and that will keep me occupied enough. My freshman year of college sucked.....so I really hope this year turns out ok. We'll see.

The problem is that I don't see myself having the cash to buy a 360 in a long time.

Readyyyyyyyy??????? Go!

Well my summer break is getting to the half way point. What have I done with myself? Much less than I anticipated, that's for certain. The first weeks off were concentrated on a job search. I probably applied to about 9 different places and never got a call back. And so many applications nowadays are just so stupid involving these long multiple choice questions. Who is honestly going to admit that they hate people when applying for a job, or that they are not honest people like some of the questions ask. And then there are the questions that seem completely unrelated to the job like "Do you think the president can be trusted?". That was honestly a question I had to answer, and similar questions were on more than one application I filled out. I got really fed up with it and just stopped trying at that point. I think in my area restaturant work like bussing tables is the only option and I just can't get myself to commit to that after having experience with it and hating it to death. So a lot of my time earlier was spent feeling guilty and sorry for myself. But now I'm over that crap and just trying to enjoy the time I have left. At least I can make some money helping my dad with his company work at home. I got the whole rest of my life to work, right?

My days have been filled upby videogames, reading, guitar and piano playing, and tennis. I'm in a Warcraft 3 binge right now, which seems to occur every summer, and I continued my file on Final Fantasy X which I started last summer. I have still not finished a final fantasy game. As for reading, I went through some books that I already owned and of which I've read before, like the Ender series. The books after the most well known Ender's Game are vastly different and good in different ways. I also read some of Kurt Vonnegut's books like Breakfast for Champions and Timequake. I'd like to get more of his. Right now I'm caught up in the Harry Potter excitement, but the books are still fresh enough in my mind that I don't think I need to go through them again right now.

On the piano, actually the keyboard, I wish we had a piano, I've been trying to learn some songs other than the traditional Bach/Beethoven stuff that I have, like the main theme from Final Fantasy X and Victor's solo from the movie the Corpse Bride. It's rewarding being able to pick up songs from games and movies and have the ability to play them on my own. And it's a nice breakup from all the classical stuff that I use to practice with.

So that's what's up with me. We have a big event in Milwaukee going on called Summerfest that has a lot of different bands and music groups performing and I've been going to that. I saw Goo Goo Dolls the other day which was awesome, but I wish I had a closer seat. It was crazy packed! E3 is coming up so that is exciting. All the Harry Potter crazy is exciting. Rush Hour 3 looks to be as good as the first two. I just hope that my mom does well on her surgery this weekend. That's always scary. And why can't she ever get a break?

-Later folks

Youth

I like this quote.

"If youth is the period of hero-worship, so also is it true that hero-worship, more than anything else, perhaps, gives one the sense of youth. To admire, to expand one's self, to forget the rut, to have a sense of newness and life and hope, is to feel young at any time of life."
-Charles Horton Cooley
