Out of the Blue

Well it's the fourth of July, which is also known as Independence Day here in the U.S., as we celebrate the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, and of course, Jeff Goldblum thwarting those aliens with a Macintosh computer virus. We had more fireworks last night, of course, but Hudson the wonder dog's reaction wasn't as severe as the night before, so we can hope she's feeling a bit desensitized. Of course the festivities tonight should be louder, but we can always hope. Anyway, here's hoping all of you who are celebrating have a fun and safe time.

Independent Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Play: Palisade Guardian 3.
Effing Worms 2.
Stories: Fireworks can injure your eyes - experts. I want to be an expert too!
Woman glued to Walmart toilet seat in Kentucky. Thanks Boing Boing.
The Bristle Brush as Barbecue Hazard. Seems careless. Thanks j.c.f.
Science: CERN experiments observe particle consistent with long-sought Higgs boson. Thanks Jim.
Follow-up: xkcd- Home Organization.

I had to click the link just to see if it was the Guatemalan import that managed to pop himself in the eye yesterday locally.

Apparently he has 499 compatriots nationally that manage to do the same thing.

Wow.. that's a bit scary. I mean isn't using wire brushes to clean grills kind of commonplace?

Yeh. The news story made me think... as it is I don't know how much I would pay attention to the grill after doing a quick cleanup job... so what are the chances that a newbie cook at a restaurant would.

They've been used for years/decades/whatever though I'd never heard a story about it until last month. Perhaps this is a case of "they don't make them like they used to?"

After all, the news stations have ALWAYS loved shocking local news.

Yeh, there was a bristle brush thing on the news last month here in NJ. (I don't know where the victim lived, but it made the news here).

In short: metal wire from brush left on grill. Adhered to burgers/steaks. Swallowed. Messed a guy up.


Happened to me a few years ago at a mexican place. They use the brush to clean the metal places the fajitas are served on. Almost swallowed it, thinking it was just a burnt/crispy edge of the chicken, but at the last minute, decided to check it out.

Never ate there again.

I was already off-line -- and based on your experience I don't think I'll test going on-line to see if I can go off-line again.

Just launched "Orcs Must Die" in off-line mode. So, either they fixed it or it isn't a universal Steam issue.

Were you already offline, or were you able to go offline after being online today? My notebook has been in offline mode for months and it still works, but I tried just now on my desktop and I still get the error when I try to restart in offline mode.

The bots in the second linked video were really bad. The first link was actually the second played chronologically, the bots were amped up after my win (they readjust every map load) and I actually played against three humans.

Even the easy bots usually give me more of a hard time than humans and the hard ones are damn near impossible. I'll have to record one totally against humans.

Batman the program I used has a bouncing ad on top of all the videos. I didn't even have to adjust any settings, just hit the record button once running and then upload the file to youtube.

Cool, I will try it out. In the past I would record a demo and then record with fraps, but I HATE fraps.

Here's the follow up CS: GO Arms Race (GG DM) win I said I would make.

One on each Arms Race map:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i4Df2ZMfPxE&hd=1

Unfortunately mostly bots.

And then the CS:S one from earlier:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ATu3_bCaZUo&hd=1

How did you make them? I can do some in DoD GG. hehehe

Came home and poor yellow was downstairs by the wash machine and dryer. Poor guy. The good thing about that, is that it is the coolest place in the whole house. So I turned some tunes on for him and he calmed down a bit....going to be a rough night. I actually got him to go outside and pee and play a bit, but a big one happened and he went for the door. The other 2 just wanted to play....in fact, the brown is looking at me right now chewing on his shoe.

/jesus those bots suck.

GET ME IN THE BETA YOU BASTARD!

The internet has taught me many things that I did not know before such as...
People are glued to toilet seats in public restrooms at big box stores on a monthly basis.

Seriously! Seems to be a lot of these lately...
