    For the record, I'm procrastinating on my Metal Gear series review (MGS, MGS2, MGS3, MGS4, MGS: PW, MGSV:GZ, MGSV:TPP, MGR:R, MG, MG2) for the Gamer's Gazette while writing this; I figured this would be at least something topical and I just needed to get this written down somewhere.

    I've played video games of all sorts for nearly my entire life. I remember in Kindergarten playing various different kid's PC games; my teacher would even burn us copies to bring home if we wanted. Games ...
  2. IlluminatiRex's College Adventures - Freshman Year

    So, my Freshman year of College has finally ended. What a ride that was, and I really can't wait for what's in store for my next semester. Some background on me - I'm an Anthropology major who hopes to eventually go into Archeology. Especially Battlefield Archeology of the first world war.

    Last month, National University of Lesotho scientists released the results of a recent analysis that revealed the presence of female hormones in beer.

    To test the theory, 100 men drank 8 pints of beer each within a 1 hour period.

    It was then observed

    Part IV: Jetsetter [Africa]
    THEN AND NOW SERIES

    I had two advantures on the continent of Africa.
    In 2000 I was a Peace Corps Volunteer
    In 2006- 2008 I was a teacher at the international school.
    Both were in Beautiful Cote d'Ivoire (Ivory Coast)

    In 2000, I joined the Peace Corps. We met in Philadelphia for initial training and a chance to get to know everyone. We were there for about three days. We then took a bus to New York and flew out on Air ...

  5. Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ70K

    Last year when my wife and I went to London, the digital camera I had at the time decided to die on me. It didn't completely die, it just refused to read or write to the SD card which meant I could only take a few pics before moving stuff to my laptop and clearing the internal storage which go to be a pain, and after buying two new cards for it while we were there we actually ended up buying a cheap little throw away camera to use for the rest of that trip. Cell phone cameras are only good for certain ...
