Super Mario 3d World

Just ordered Super Mario 3d World for the Wii U for less than thirty quid from It's on sale and 25% cheaper than Amazon (and pretty much everybody else, too), so grab a bargain.

I've been here at my friend's place for a little over a week now and I'm starting to get a bit irritated. He and I are both fine… we game or we go out to eat, watch some shows/movies, maybe go for a walk, whatever. My brother, on the other hand, is impossible to please…

About four days into the trip, he said that he was feeling a little homesick. I asked what he was missing and he said "I don't know". He's 20 years old…

He will only eat the same things over and over again. He only eats once a day, too, so he never wants to go out when we do (which isn't often anyways), and he never wants to eat what we want to eat. He's basically been living on tuna helper, macaroni and cheese, and subs.

All he wants to do is play video games. Getting him out of his room here is almost as hard as getting him out of his room at home and everything has to revolve around him. He wants to watch his shows when he wants to watch them. He wants to play his games when he wants to play them. He wants to watch his YouTube clips when he wants to watch them. He has no concept of trying anything new or the world not revolving solely around him. He's happy as long as things are going his way but when people start doing their own thing, he begins to lose interest, withdraw, and mope.

He also can't seem to comprehend that he's in someone else's place… he needs to keep it clean. He doesn't take any initiative to bring soda cans out of his room or to rinse them out as my friend has requested. He doesn't throw trash out or anything. I have to tell him. It's like I'm babysitting him to some extent and it's getting on my nerves.

I also dislike the fact that the kid doesn't want to spend money… like at all. He's so far past "tight" that there's no word to describe his insane desire to hang onto his money. What he's holding onto it for is beyond me. He won't help pay for any of his games, he doesn't help buy food, doesn't buy clothes, nothing!

I know he can't help it…I know something is wrong with him and he was raised to be something of a spoiled brat…but I can only take so much before I start to get irritable around him. I think I've been doing pretty good, I've hardly snapped at him but I've realized that I could never, ever live with him…here or anywhere else.

I don't understand what we are supposed to do in life. I mean, I know I still have my whole life to figure it out, but everything seems kinda pointless right now...

All I know is that I'm gonna die one day and nothing I do is really gonna matter after that. When I look around everything seems fake, like somehow I don't belong. I'm just not really happy with not knowing anything to live for...

Would you buy a used car from one of these guys?..

This is too funny:

America's offensive diplomacy

...there's no cause for alarm, the world's in the hands of people with the emotional and intellectual sophistication of an underfed rat. I wonder if any of them has ever had a conversation with anybody that's lasted more than three exchanges, because they all appear to deal in soundbites. And if hyperbole were a commodity, then the US would be even wealthier than it is, now.

If it were me, I wouldn't bother cutting the head off any snake, rotten, or otherwise: I'd stuff its tail in its jaws and allow it to eat itself.

God, that's quite tiring... how do they keep that shit up?

Saudi prince found guilty of murdering his servant

Saudi prince found guilty of murdering his servant

Detective Chief Inspector John McFarlane said: "...This verdict clearly shows no one, regardless of their position, is above the law."

LOL. True, but not in the way that you mean, DCI McFarlane.

I've just reminded myself of that wonderful Anatoly France quotation, which goes something along the lines of:

The Law, in its majestic neutrality, treats all men as equal: all are forbidden from sleeping under bridges, stealing bread and begging in the streets

Servant 'let Saudi prince kill him without fight'

Perhaps this is evidence, from a psychological perspective, that one should never acknowledge another person as one's superior, on any level... Taken to its full logical extent, we now know where this approach to human interaction leads:

Servant 'let Saudi prince kill him without fight'

Besides which, how can one acknowledge as superior a bunch of wankers who have been inbreeding for generations? I mean, good Lord, they probably only have half a dozen functioning braincells, between them... Perhaps, like the Graeae, they lend them to one another, as they are needed.

Study highlights mental problems in US teens

Well, I suppose if one goes looking for evidence of something, then one will find it:

Study highlights mental problems in US teens

However, the National Institutes of Mental Health ("NIMH"), and the Journal of the American Academy of Child and Adolescent Sychiatry ("JAACAS"), are not renowned for their impartiality.

Anyway, I think we should quickly drug these kids, before somebody thinks of something more constructive... The system's failed: if I ever satisfy myself that you've been using mental health diagnoses as a tool of social control, I will visit your own tools on you.
