The Death of a Friend.

It's been a while since I last posted, about the wonderful SponsoredTweets, since then I've earnt a few dollars here and there with advertising which is pretty decent,

A good friend of mine kicked the bucket last week and I was heartbroken to say the least :/

So yeah, what will happen now that little daft sod, the 'supreme leader of North Korea' is no more? I for one do not know, personally I don't all care that much, North Korea has always brought many a 'lol' to my life.

A few pictures first? to set the mood!

Dang this guy was one sexy mofo!

Kim in his better known role!

Anyhow, Some people believe this guy is a hero, scholar, gentleman and true inspiration...I on the other hand just think he was a tool, I mean you should not speak-il (puntastic) of the dead but it's just what I feel in my heart.

Let's look at a few examples which back my thoughts of major douchery conducted by this man/thing. I really don't know where to start so I will approach this in a random manner.

To kick off let's look at his 'Titles', he had over 50 of them, the best ones include: Guiding Star of the 21st Century, Brilliant Leader, Commander-in-Chief, Guiding Sun Ray, Highest Incarnation of the Revolutionary Comradely Love, Party Center, Ever-Victorious, Iron-Willed Commander, and Dear Leader, who is a perfect incarnation of the appearance that a leader should have.

So...this one time the poor bastard fell off a horse, he hurt himself (aww diddums) and had to take some pain killers to help ease his pain...this is standard, oh wait what? oh that's right because he thinks he is a big shot he ordered a handful of his staff take the same medication. He also made the horse take the pain medication – and his dogs..Is this guy foreal? Oh dear...

Let's carry on,

Kim Jong-Il's official bio at various times claimed he was the world’s greatest golfer, saying he nailed five holes-in-ones on his very first round! Another talent of his was that he could control the weather with his mood, wouldn't that be so fucking sweet to be able to do that? The best part though (and the silly NK sods believed him?) was that he did not defecate. Ever?!  That’s right.  He never pooped – not once in his life.  He was the first non-pooper in human history.   And his urine?  Well, they say it was gold, pure gold.

So is it him who is the douche or everyone who believed this bullshit?? There's more...

The the supreme leader of North Korea was somewhat obsessed with Katy Perry. (understandable right?)  It's been reported that he would often dance around his palace singing to Katy Perry in his beautiful little voice. He sent her a ton of love letters, I guess she just laughed and binned them? He wasn't pleased so sent a North Korean spy team to England to steal her away from Russel Brand.  They never made it – and instead defected to Portugal. He was livid.

Oh listen to this too...

One of his unofficial titles was The Central Brain.   He often said that his brain was ten times bigger than Einstein’s and told sources close to him that President Obama’s brain was the smallest of any leader on the planet.

So do you still think he is a top guy?

Here's some other random shit about that guy:
  • In 2004, Kim Jong-Il claimed to have invented the hamburger
  • Kim Jong-Il once attempted to ship all the short people out of North Korea
  • Kim Jong-Il's favorite movies were Friday the 13th, Rambo, and Godzilla
  • Kim Jong-nam, the oldest son of Kim John-Il, was originally going to replace his father but lost his chance after a "botched attempt" to visit Japan's Disneyland
  • Kim Jong-Il was actually born in Siberia, making him Russian 
  • Kim Jong-Il's biography claims his birth was "foretold by a swallow and heralded by a glorious double rainbow and the appearance of a new star"
  • Kim Jong-Il planned to breed giant rabbits to solve North Korea's hunger problems
  • When he was forced to give up cigarettes for health reasons, Kim Jong-Il forced the entire country to do the same - effectively banning them
  • Kim Jong-Il reportedly injected his body with the "blood of virgins" in an effort to stay young, guess that didn't work?
I guess when I think about it I love the guy for the laughs he has brought me, deep down though he was a douche, but like all deaths I wish his family and friends well, may he rest in peace,

God speed.

Growing up I always wanted to be a Dolphin!

..O.k I lied I never once said when I was young that I wanted to be a dolphin, I never really was a fan...however in my teens I began watching dolphins as a past time. They are fascinating animals to say the least.

Why dolphins are awesome.
  • They can do crazy flips and shit! - Don't believe me YouTube them!
  • They have been known to aid humans in danger; in 2004 a bunch of dolphins swarmed some swimmers in NZ to defend them from a shark for like 40 minutes.
  • Dolphins in the wild will seek out humans and surf alongside boats just for play.
  • A dolphin can emit a sonic boom loud enough to stun a fish. 
  • They're cute
  • They make cool noises
  • Did I mention the crazy flips and shit?
Dolphins are also big pranksters, often harassing turtles by rolling them over on their backs. They've been seen pulling out the tail feathers of poor pelicans minding their own business on the water, purely for the lulz.

So they're intelligent, have a great sense of humour and love interaction with boats and humans; swimming and showing off alongside them on the waves.

Oh to be a dolphin for a day, well maybe you can!

This post was originally inspired by GB rower Alex Gregory who tweeted a link to a fascinating and desirable gadget.

So what is this fascinating link that was tweeted? It's only a bloody jet-pack that makes you swim like a flippin' dolphin!

PayPal : Are you foreal?

Christmas time, the time for giving...Oh's not a cat? we can't help you!

I was trolling the internet today and came across an interesting article about PayPal, basically they were being ridiculously out of order towards this site who were buying/selling presents and raising money for poor kids over Christmas, seems like a good cause? I thought so too..

I read this shocking report and found a new fuel for anger within a company I had always appreciated and always thought had "charity" in mind, it would seem otherwise...

So join in the petitions and spam the shit out of those tramps over at PayPal. It's already trending on Twitter, great work twerps!

If you need emails or numbers to get your point across look here.

Merry Xmas! You Filthy Animals!

CSM - The Push For Promotion!

So I started back on Cs-Manager the other week, I was given a shoddy team who were 12th in the league.

I shrugged it off and said to myself I could pull myself up to the top 5, as a personal goal. I created some pretty swish tactics and have pulled back a ton of points, winning the last 6 of my league games (all the games since I activated account)

Current league looks as follows with one game to go, it all comes down to tomorrows performance by myself and the team above me.

I am pretty certain I will win my last game landing me on 32 points, Clan_982706 will lose to Mr men, sitting on 32 but I beat it with better round difference.

This then leaves my potential fight for play-offs in the hands of NEEKS CLAN who have just signed up and been given a shoddy crew, much like myself before.

NEEKS CLAN have won their last two games, which is excellent and their activity is 5/5 making their clan perform at 100%, Rolling Stones has actually been banned for some reason (they still have to complete the season before being removed), they won 6 games in a row until tonight when they drew, they are banned and thus inactive so it's Players will play 75% of their maximum performance.

I have mailed NEEKS CLAN and told them I need them to have a big win and I am willing to help with tactics to do so, hopefully they'll be nice and let me help them win, getting myself into play-offs and then allowing me to kick ass and get promoted. It would be the epic ending to an awesome come-back.

I will definitely be getting promoted anyway, due to banned users and inactive clans, but I would love to get the promo by actually winning it.

We'll see.

CS:GO Beta - My Two Cents

As you gamers should be aware the beta for the latest addition to the Counter-Strike franchise went live on the 30th, there have been a large selection of people who have been badmouthing the game already within it's first few days of being live,

CS: GO features new maps, characters, and weapons and delivers updated versions of the classic CS content (de_dust, etc.). In addition, CS: GO will introduce new gameplay modes, matchmaking, leader boards, and more.

Having had the privilege to play the game myself I can say that I think it's truly beautiful and Valve/Hidden Path Entertainment have done well in my eyes so far; and I've only seen one map and one game-type.

Sadly there is currently only one map available on the beta and this is the old favorite, Dust, the map features the same layout as previous CS however it has a few little extras to make it look fresh and up-to-date. One major edit to the map is that there is now a stairwell/passage which leads around from the ledge to the underpass which really throws you off-guard first time around.

I think the graphics are great for the game it is. CS players have never been raging and demanding super OMGWTFBBQPWN graphics, they love the style of the game, the feel of the mouse and the way it's played, having super high-tech graphics would just slow them down and make the game less wide-spread across the world in requiring shit-hot computers to run it...

The buy menu is beautiful and easy to navigate, obviously first time players will take a round or to to get their buys in sync but after a few games you should be good to buy your gear in a  matter of seconds.

The buy menu shows you what you have already on your person, it then splits into the weapon/equipment categories, you don't have to click specific little buttons just move your mouse in that direction and it'll highlight it. You can also "Auto Buy" which will equip you with the best items you can afford.

The 'Re-Buy Previous' is a nice thing to have at hand and allows you to re-buy everything you had the round previous (if you have the cash).

Two great little pieces of equipment have been added to the new game: rush-blocking molotov cocktails and decoy grenades that emit sounds of gunfire when thrown, both are excellent additions to the game and will in time make teams and players re-think strategies and tactics.

The game is fun, of course it is! The only downer I felt was that there was only one map available and one game type open on beta, other than that I thought it was well made so far and by 2012 when it's due for release it will be one of the best FPS out there.

Another excellent thing about this game is that cross-platform multiplayer has been confirmed between Microsoft Windows, Mac OS X and PlayStation 3...This could prove to be very exciting in the future.

I will warn you now though, there is already a few shit-hot snipers about so when the game does go live I really think shit will hit the fan.

Below are a bunch of screen-shots of the buy menu/weapons so far, enjoy.

Here's one "Before & After" image I found on the web, it shows how pretty they've made it.
