A True Story.

Recommended Posts

This is indeed a true yet silly little story. Grab something to drink and sit down. Our adventure begins last night, it was a warm night and I was feeling frisky. I decided to chill out and watch Baseketball.  A stupid movie? Yes. A splendidly stupid movie? Hells to the yes. Anywho, I go to the video store. The clerk is a nice young woman and after picking her ass for ten minutes decided to ask me if I needed something. Mind you I was standing at the counter the whole time staring at her and breathing heavy. It was obvious that I needed her, what it appeared I needed her for is debatable but the fact that I needed her remained. I ask for the movie and she starts typing in the computer. Five minutes and three calls to her cell phone later I get the answer.

"We dont got it."

"Oh, yea" I say, as I eye her up. "You mean you dont have it in, or you dont carry it?"

"We dont carry it."

"Okie dunky, chunky! Thanks!" I reply.

I come home and think to myself. "Ah ha! I know, surely it is available on demand." I have Sudden Link and they have a VERY impressive on demand lineup here. I smugly pick up the remote and check. No dice.

"Shit" I say.

About that time I remember the XBOX marketplace. SURELY they have it.

I turn on the 360 all the while praying it doesnt overheat and die on me..... waiting.. waiting... SUCCESS! The machine turned on without the RROD. Ok now to check... lets see... YES!!!! They have baseketball for rent. Not only that but in high def!!!! SWEET!! I click to rent the movie. The machine thinks for a second before freezing like George Bush at a press conference and then just goes fucking back to where I started. I tried for a good 20 minutes to get it to work. Then I realize, I didnt have enough points! SHIT! So I add some points. Anyway that didnt fix it either. I can download anything on X FUCKING BOX Live but fucking Baseketball. Ok I am getting annoyed. This shit has spanned two nights.

So I did what I should have just fucking done in the first place. Downloaded a perfect DVD rip off of BitTorrent in literally 49 minutes, one that will stream to my xbox and play on my big screen in high def JUST LIKE A REAL DVD. I am just about to sit down to enjoy my freaking Baseketball with the Mrs. I just thought you guys might like this story..... If anyone from the RIAA is reading this.. or anyone in the movie industry.

This is Fucking why people download shit illegally! Make it as easy to get legally as it is to get illegally and you will fix your own damn problem. Half dead mother fuckers!!!  :tickedoff: :tickedoff: :tickedoff: :tickedoff: :tickedoff:

Shug we must be both having a bad Week. Though mine was my own stupid fault.

So My cable connection got really slow. Using xp. So me being me, I spend 3 days scanning with anti-virus/spy-ware and Trojan programs. Both in regular and safe mode.

I run hijack this through it. For the life of me I have no clue why my connection got so slow. So after countless speed tests, Countless scans and Tons of reboots later I decide to reload Xp. No big deal.

So I tell the ol lady I am gonna reload Xp, Tell her why. She thought it was a good idea because she had noticed the slow connection. She then said, "it got slow after I had to unplug the cable modem for a min." I asked was the computer on? She of course said yea, it took a bit of time but it reconnected again. She then looked at me with a guilty look and asked "Did I do something stupid"??

No she did not do something stupid. The geek troubleshooting the connection Did something Stupid. So I teach her how to recycle the cable modem. Ya know shut the computer down unplug the modem, wait a min or two, Plug the modem back in wait a couple of min turn on the computer.

Just pretty as ya please, after I recycle the cable modem all is well. Connection is back up to speed. Just one of those times I make things way harder than it needs to be. K.I.S.S.  Keep It Simple Stupid.

After she noticed how much fater the connectin was and such, She of course had to ask Why did I not try that trick first. I told her that was just to simple and I have to play with and turn xp Inside out every once in awhile. Man I feel like a Dork.

These should be in funny stuff.  :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny: :2funny:

And your right shug. My excuse is old movies from the 50's to 80's are so hard to get for the kids. All these rental movie thieves want you to rent the new stuff only. I want the good stuff for the kids. Old disney and such. They love it.  :angel: :angel:

lol mine. ambulance rides when they have to shock you....FREAKING EXPENSIVE....i told them i didnt remember it happening so i couldnt prove i was there so they shouldnt bill me...but they did anyways.... :undecided:

You had anymore since then, or do they have you on the right meds ? I have a friend that has a daughter, she's around 16 years old, and she has them bad all the time. They have so many different meds for that, they can get it right .

Another friend of mine, had them bad too, but they got him right.

klol yeh.  im probably getting a new job in the next few days so extra income will also help.  [nerd]

yeh i guess the story was i stopped breathing then they shocked me and put an IV in my arm and left a blood pool in my living room....and then the air mask coudlnt keep up with me sucking in air to try to breathe....so the ambulance ride i guess was a short ride and after every catscan eeg and all that they could think of i came to...and was asked where i was...and i replied simply "not where i remeber being..."

after all that i lost a work shirt which got cut away...and left the hospital cause even with insurance i couldnt afford to stay very much longer...

by the way...i dont remember any of it....

except the last test they did...was a scan...they pumped me full of contrast dye twice in a row...even though high doses can give you heart failure....and then they pumped more into me followed by some saline to flush out my system....didnt work ....couldnt stop shaking stopped breathing...got that taken care of and told them i wanted out before they killed me....  :haha: :haha: :haha: and here i am today, with only taking one or two asprins a day for headaches and dizzyness...    :2funny::knuppel2::shocked:
