Yeah, I can't stand Bioshock. Awful series.
That reminds me of something when I was younger. It's kinda of a long story and completely off topic but here goes.
I was about 11, it was the last year of primary school and it was my first time away from home at an outdoor activity weekend to do rock climbing, cave walking, etc. Anyway, first evening there we had dinner at the hotel we were staying at and the lady serving the food asked me if I wanted peas or sweetcorn. Peas I find repulsive and I'd never had sweetcorn so I said sweetcorn I guess and she duly placed a mound or sweetcorn on my plate. I was dreading eating the stuff so I ate everything else leaving this mountain of sweetcorn in the middle of my plate. I scooped up some into my mouth and literally gagged. I'd have rather had peas! It was then when the headteacher announced that if there was any leftovers they would not be opening the tuck shop.
Shit I didn't even have any mashed potato left to dilute the taste. I had to think of a way of getting out of eating this yellow crap so I willed myself to have a nosebleed. Miraculously my nose started bleeding right on cue! That's right, I made my nose bleed due to the power of thought alone! I don't even know how that works, it must be my superhero power or divine intervention or something. I hurried off to the bathroom, making sure to spend 20 minutes there so that I could be sure that dinner was over and my plate would've been removed.
When I returned I was greeted by the faces of about 100 angry and impatient kids and my pile of now cold sweetcorn still waiting for me.
That's a really good story.
As awesome as that story is, not liking sweetcorn is absurd! But I'm kinda scared of your mind now, Wasp...
Haha that's amazing, whoever was in charge sounds like a shower of bastards.
I went to the Isle of Wight on one of those weekends too but it was in a christian hostel type place and we were served cornflake pie one night and other such disgusting stuff. I was traumatised by the whole experience really and they wouldn't let me phone home the cunts. I was a sensitive child haha
A rare and golden insight into the life and mind of Wasp. Thoroughly enjoyable.
now he has the power to give other people cerebral hemorrhages
Agreed, I crave more now.
Need a thread where we all just tell crazy stories.
About the nose bleed.. I swear as a kid I didnt have to touch mine either. Thing was constantly going off at the worst of times. Never was able to do it on command though .
Talking of sweetcorn and peas, when my younger sister was about 3, and I guess I was about 6, she loved peas. They were her favourite food. She had them just about every day.
Then I told her that the water you get in cans of peas was... pee. She flat out refused to eat them for the rest of her childhood. Mum was furious. I had broken her daughter. It was my proudest moment.
In fact she still doesn't like peas even today although she probably doesn't remember why.
I just take joy in being sinister like that. Like any older brother should.
Remember those Sonic 2 half-pipe special stages? AI Tails was abysmal in those. He did the exact same thing as Sonic except two seconds slower. When you're jumping out of the way of those spiked balls at the last second that's not good enough. Luckily I had an alternative. My sister who like I mentioned is three years younger. I trained her like a performing monkey to help me on those stages. And it worked, we got every Chaos emerald.
Negative reinforcement works wonders.
My (older) brother did that kind of stuff to me all the time. I believed so much shit he told me until I was a teen, even videogame rumours. He said the Playstation 2 (this was what, 1997ish) was going to answer the door and make you breakfast - I believed him :(
Hahahaha this is incredible. I fucking love Peas Wasp and I'm very gullible so I am not letting you in my house.
Though I've never bought tinned peas so that issue is negligible.
I'm the youngest so god knows what shit my sister pulled on me. I know i was under orders from parents to help her with her GCSE drama course work so i was her puppet for face paint make up based on the little shop of horrors.
I'm currently taking pride in playing games with the people i work with. A few weeks ago i convinced somebody that Mensa is the British version of NASA.
I've put Catherine up on amazon for 32.99.
However, if any of you guys want it for 30 quid, tell me now and I'll do it for yal.
Going on a limb here, really looking for someone to help me out and sell me a core 360 (no cables/no harddrive) preferably the older models, maybe one someones got lying around they dont use anymore. My 360 has completely stopped reading discs. And I just bought BF3. You'd be doing me a favour if you sold it dirt cheap, but i'd s you forever.
