Risky Business

A seemingly harmless playground...?


LOOK AGAIN!!!


DOES THIS SEEM HARMLESS??


AND WHAT ABOUT THESE POOR CHILDREN???



Never play on a playground when there is no playguard on duty, kids. It's just common sense.

Wherefore art tho, Tracball?

Oh how I miss thee, Tracball.

Would Tracball called by any other name be as satisfying?

Only if we called it "Bodagget."

One day I'll be back in Provo, playing the game I was made for... Oh Tracball...

Quotable Quotes and HELLDAC Timeline

I mean really though, there were so many quotes. Here are just the ones I could remember:

"Hang it up."

"SURPRISE!"

"It's all about delivery."

"Anal."

"Up & at 'em!"

"IS THAT MACHINE GUN FIRE??!"

"Where all friends till someone drops the F-word." (FIREGUARD)

"Kill."

"Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!"

"Hoobah."

"You nasty. You Skookum nasty."

And as for the timeline, this is what I have compiled. Dates may not be exact, and this list is by no means complete:

Day 2: Your mom jokes
Day 3: Already telling knock knock jokes
Day 4: Females start saying "That's what she said."
Day 6: Quillen Sleeping in the Cattle Car
Day 8: Gas Gas Gas/Black Six (Hawkins' call sign at the gas site)
Day 9: Surprise Fireguard
Day 10: Late-night philosophy Discussions
Day 15: MRE Stock Exchange
Day 16: Hang it up
Day 18: "F" Word
Day 20: Negative Spot Report Rampage
Day 21: Up & at 'em!
Day 23: IS THAT MACHINE GUN FIRE??!!
Day 24: Scooby Snacks do NOT make it all better
Day 25-29: All I remember is loose talk about hanging it up for life and endless monotony. Oh yeah and that one kid wouldn't walk across the beam at the water confidence course. We waited over two hours for him to fail. Awesome.

Holy crap... It's August

And then... it was August. Where did July go?

OH YEAH... HELLDAC. More commonly known as LDAC. I'd rather not relive the experience by writing about it. Just know that it was an excruciatingly long 29 days made bearable by some incredibly worthwhile people (4th Platoon you know who I'm talking about).

Nevermind that everyone except me is looking the wrong way.

And even though I missed my flight coming home and had to spend the night in Seattle, some good came of it: THE HTC EVO 4G FROM SPRINT SUCKERS!!! Behold it's beauty. I could go on all day about how fricken cool it is, and how it's features are light years ahead of the competition, but I think this one feature pretty much sums it up:



THAT'S RIGHT! THIS PHONE HAS A FLIPPING KICKSTAND!!

And if you'd like to compare, here's a little something to chew on:

Notice that the overall sexy-factor of the Evo trumps that of the iPhone. I didn't believe it could be done either.

Oh iPhone, you were my first love. I daydreamed about you like Chuck Norris daydreams about roundhousing fools to the face for fun. You always inspired awesome aliteration actively from afar via your alluring aura. But alas, I have found my true love. And though you will remain in my heart as my first crush, I am now with the one I was meant to be with. So good bye, LDAC and all of your suck; hello EVO and happily ever after.

It's a good start to August.
