Out of the Blue

Well happy spring to those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, as today is the vernal equinox. The snow on the ground outside indicates that the groundhog's pessimism was justified, but with spring having sprung, one can only hope that warmer days are imminent (either that or a breakdown). For those in the southern hemisphere, happy autumn... here's hoping you have a milder winter than we experienced in these parts.

I am glad my roommates and I do not have a cat/doggy door, or I am sure one of our cats would do this!

The thing was, it was an indoor (declawed) cat...I'm not sure where the hell she was finding snakes in the house at night (nor do I want to know), I'm just glad I don't live there anymore...

o the DOOR? Hell, I had one of my cats drop one on my BED. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, WHILE I WAS IN IT.

I am glad my roommates and I do not have a cat/doggy door, or I am sure one of our cats would do this! (We have three total between all the mates)

Luckily, they have all been trained to sit/lay and meow at the door waiting to get in, and they know to get back in when it is starting to go dark.

nd there were at least 2 or 3 times where I'd get up in the morning and find a snake body, minus the chewed off head, lying in the hall

None of our cats kill the snake, just play with it, but if my dog sees them playing with it he will join.
Which is fine, because he is not trying to cause it harm, but he gets so excited so easily and gets carried away and it can get nasty!

I really enjoy the fools that run around with car radios blasting, in BF:V. Makes them a lot easier to keep track of halfway across the map.

Ya know, when your cat brings a small little brown “garden” snake to the front door

To the DOOR? Hell, I had one of my cats drop one on my BED. IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, WHILE I WAS IN IT.

<cat wakes up nin, making odd meow>
<nin yells at cat, telling it to "knock that f$%*ing shit OFF!">
<cat runs off bed, leaving some sort of lump at foot of bed>
<nin flips on light, and eyes bug out of head, as lump is a coiled snake>

And there were at least 2 or 3 times where I'd get up in the morning and find a snake body, minus the chewed off head, lying in the hall...you don't need coffee the first time that happens.

edit: And you sure as hell don't walk barefoot throught the house anymore...

Ya know, when your cat brings a small little brown “garden” snake to the front door, and you show your girlfriend and she is all “eccck”, it can get annoying fast.

But when you throw a small brown stick at her the same size as the snake and scream “look out”…..ohh man is that hilarious!

How do you switch to gunner (or to any other position in a vehicle?).

you hit the number key associated with that seat (like 1, 2, 3, 4, etc. etc.)

No, no Stones in the default playlist. But hey, you can pick up their Greatest Hits for around $10. Jumpin' Jack Flash, anyone?

btw, if I hear Ride of the Valkyries in-game one more time, I'm gonna start tk'ing, dammit. Enough with the Apocalypse Now references.

Hey, happy b'day, nin.

For the Stones I'd say Paint it Black would be essential. It has the frenetic, angry energy of the period. Other good period tunes and stuff you see in 'Nam flicks would be good.

Is that song on the BFV soundtrack!??, If so, I'm buying the damn game, if only just for the soundtrack!!

We all said "I'll give you cash blue, don't switch to add's!" but he said "sorry I need cash and I can't depend on you guys." So now we're like we are today, but with Firefox I don't see any of the add's. YAY!

Compared to...what?

Stupidly annoying emode ads?

Bad movies with the ever poor-acting DMX?

Crappy budget titles?

Just generally crappy games?

Financial institutions?

At least the Far Cry advertisement is for a game I care about. Of course, caring about it, I already pre-ordered it when I played the demo so the end result is the same; stupidly annoying, wasteful advertisements.

I LOVE when the flash advertisements end up crashing my browser or completely crippling my Uber system.

Or how about, in case you missed it on the splash page (that pops up multiple times a day), having the *same* advertisement repeated throughout the site.

To be honest, the adverstisements are either pointless (Far Cry) or they make me outright hate a given product.

YAY3 4 ADVURTIEZMENTZ!11111111111

I would rather donate money to the site directly or even have some type of buy-through, revenue-sharing deal with Blue's.

Loving advertisements :D,

few people will switch to gunner, and instead try and take you out with the main gun

How do you switch to gunner (or to any other position in a vehicle?). This would be particularly useful in Hellbender (since too few people will jump into one) and Leviathon (so you could change which turret you're in, or to a turret from main if deployed).

Did some googling, but didn't come up with any hits.


Edit: More googling... apparantly it's the 1/2/.../n buttons just as if they were weapons. Since I've rebound all my weapons to other keys this should be fun to figure out... (yeah, I'll cheat by secondary binding them back to defaults).
