    Hell yeah. I have a buddy who looks like hes just gonna live with his parents forever. Sign up for some damn classes, your 8-12 hours a week of work aren't gonna do anything for you.

      I only play it on exhibition mode now. I do 5 rounds, random division, on the hardest level. Then I do random fighters and challenge myself to beat the guy they give me. It's fun.
      I do a lot of the Championship mode stuff. I'll use my favourite fighter in the division and play on the 3rd difficulty. I usually win those but occasionally some BS reversal happens or I get subbed out of nowhere.

        That's another thing that grinds my gears. Ok I understand submissions happen, but why am I having to ******* turn the analog stick. It's so uncomfortable and it ***** up my controller. My friend was doing it too much and he got a hole in his hand, lol. I really wish they change that.

        I understand if they do the tapping button thing, there will probably be a lot of modded controllers online, but ******* innovate.

        I loved how in the 2009 game, you could punch your way out.

          Last night at an event in SF I met a 20-something girl wearing a HELLO -- MY NAME IS sticker named BRANDI with an inexplicable accent mark (') over the I.

          I wanted to poke her nametag & ask "Really?" or "Did you add that or did your parents have a thing about punctuation ?" but I would've been arrested for harassment, assault, etc.

          If you're Nordic or German & have an umlaut over a vowel in your name you get a pass.
          With all those beers you had it's a wonder you could read the name tag at all. Just kidding of course. (sort of)

          • Having a light sensitivity really grinds my gears.

            It snowed a few inches last night and then was hellishly sunny today, and of course, I misplaced my sunglasses since I last needed them months ago. It was soooo bright out from the snow reflecting the sun...ugh.

            So I got to work with a headache, and it's lasted all night, and now has gotten so bad it's starting to make my stomach hurt. I imagine this is similar to what people who get migraines feel like, and it is ******* miserable.

            Two more hours to go....

              I have to scrub my audio CDs with isopropyl alcohol to clean them b/c off all the fluff & crap that gets on them & gum them up (mostly from playing in my vehicle, road crap & all that). I feel redeemed as a human being when I play music by maintaining the sound quality.

              I have my cheapass Target CD minisystem player in my den, a room with the rolltop desk & a bookcase full of CDs & they're all categorized in gnats-ass precise order, dammit:
              • British rock on its own shelf, God bless the Stones, the tail end of the 1969 Beatles, the Who & the genius that is Peter Townsend...
                Dylan & the folky stuff together (have to have The Band in there with Bobby Zimmerman!!),
                American on it's own shelf,
                compilations (Sedated In the 80s, best 80s collections EVER! -- Motown, even an Extreme Classics, disco (vol. 1) & a goth compilation in there, + an elevator muzak easy listening (bought myself a Herb Alpert & the Tijuana brass for Xmas, eat it you purists!) collection with Ricky Nelson & Burt Bachrach & even Randy Newman & Bruce Hornsby, wish I had some Sinatra in my old age...
                And recent stuff, with the ladies on their own mini-shelf (Blondie, Go-Gos, Bangles, the late great Dusty Springfield...)

              but if I drink this incredibly extravagant & wonderful Kentucky sippin' whiskey & Trumer Pils beer while listening to it on the headphones (the 2 events are pretty much mandatory together for me) one or 2-3 loose CDs always end up out there without their containers & it take months to put them in the appropriate jewel boxes.

              I boy a lot of empty jewel boxes & it really grinds my gear b/c I break their heap plastic hinges.....

              Categorization & maintaining order in one's possessions & life is a real *****.

              • I don't understand why people would still have cds? You can rip lossless versions of them and not need stupid CDs or risk them being scratched, or if you don't have a sound system/headphones that are good enough for it to matter, like 99% of the population, you can rip a lot less that lossless.

                If you care about quality and want to look cool by having a collection that takes up space you'd buy vinyl anyway!

                So yeah, I don't get owning CDs anymore, they just take up valuable space!


                Props to BK on the sig!

                • My parents still use CDs....I used CDs up until the Christmas before last when I got my iPod and a radio tuner thing to listen to it in my car.

                  • Hearing that stupid phrase they use on ESPN...

                    "Not now, but right now"

                    What the hell does that even mean?

                    • 8 am classes.

                      Don't say "I have work at 7 am that's worse bleeeeeeeh." You can show up to work and be tired. You can't show up to class tired (well that is unless you're an english major).

                        I was a Comm major and I'm pretty sure all of the professors were as lazy as we were....Comm classes typically didn't start before 9:30, and then only on Tuesday and Thursdays....so many afternoon classes. It was awesome.

                          • I show up to class half asleep every morning. And it's a math class making it that much more necessary (and difficult) to concentrate.

                              don't be foolish, english classes dont start before 10:30 AM

                              unless it's a freshman-level comp. class.
