Remember how I said I wouldn't complain again unless something else happened to one of my electronic gizmos? Well guess what happened?

A) My Otaku USA magazine came later that day and it had a coupon for a free vasectomy.

B) Later that day I looked out my window and saw a large group of panties flying majestically through the sky.

C) A little while after I last posted here my internet router went kaboom.

If you guessed "C" congratulations you probably don't want to slam your computer against the wall nearly as much as I want to cause harm to mine. Anyway a new router and $110 lighter I was diligently trying to get stuff from my external hard drive back on the regular computer and get caught up with all of your entries. (Wow do all of you post a lot. It's like you have lives or something.) Suddenly my computer went to blue screen. I pulled to wire for the external hard drive real quick. Long story short I ended up having to wipe the computer twice in two days after it would go to blue screen right as it was starting up and a disk check got frozen. So I gave a friend of mine a call and he said it might be the hard drive. This is the same hard drive he installed about a year ago. He'll come pick it up tues which is the same day that I start a new work schedule. It's only two days but that's better than the one day I had for all of last january.

In other news I've taken down most of the dangley bits of my web. Not all of it mind you since I rely on it too much. One odd thing I noticed was that a vile of poison that I had hanging in a small pouch was half empty. I know I didn't drink it and my web would have prevented anyone else from just walking in, plus no one else knew it was there. It must have evaporated.

Well I'll leave you all with this lovely video that never fails to cheer me up:

It sounds like you're emitting a high-frequency electro-magnetic pulse.

Oh, and that video is absolutely priceless.

Woo hoo! I'm finally developing mutant powers! The world shall soon learn to fear me.

If you wanted you could recreate it at home (minus the jet propulsion):

I was gonna vote for B.
Some panties flying through the air?
That means naked women are not far.

I don't know about naked but they're definitely going "commando".

Blah. Computer issues. In my opinion that's awfully lot of money for just a router. Unless it's some kind of a special router.
But wait..you have poison in your room?

As far as I know there isn't anything special unless needing a password to use and having a one year warranty counts. This is only the second router I've ever bought so I'm not sure what the normal price would be. Plus taxes are really high here so that's part of it.

Yeah when I was about 11 my parents bought me a chemistry kit. I mixed a little of everything that had a warning label of "deadly if ingested". I figured if things got bad and I couldn't handle the way my life was heading it would be my plan B. It may sound odd but knowing it was there helped me get through a lot.
