You may iron your clothes for school, work, or for social functions. But there are some people who iron IN EXTREME WAYS just for the fun of it.
people take an ironing board to a remote location and iron items of clothing.

But let's be a little bit honest -- Ironing really is a good way to exercise yourself to balance the muscle mass of another activity that may be done on leisure time. Right?

Extreme sports usually have a point to them -- to test the level-headedness and flexibility of people under very stressful situations. Flipping a bike in midair, skating up a vertical wall at 20 MPH. That's extreme. The only thing extreme here is making sure your clothes don't get wrinkled on the descent.

Time for FOX to pick this up as a TV show.

Why Japan is the greatest.

It's illegal to be fat in Japan

From the article:
If you're male and your waist is over 33.5 inches, you're considered fat. If you're female, the limit is 35.4 inches.

I used to live in Japan -- there were many, many "American" fast food places that were always frequented with Japanese people. Even though I was young, I rememver everything tasting good. McDonalds, KFC, and Shakey's pizza were located off base, while Burger King was always on base.

Side note -- I remember when BK transitioned to their current french fry cooking style. Dis-fucking-gusting.

The fast food places I went to had everything looking exactly like the menu. Perfectly proportioned buns.. oh man, I want to go back. Nostalgia time. ;_;

I learned in biology that your body shape was mostly affected by how you were when you were young. Bad youth diet? Fat later on. I imagine people like Jared from Subway had one hell of a time havign his body adapt to changes in diet.

The parks that were located in Japan were intense. There were huge wooden pirate ships, lots of rope ladders you can climb on, a child's damn dream. And I got to play on MANY of them.

Look at this! I ran around on this. When I was 9. Yarrrr.

There are no parks nearly as great as this in the US, which I blame solely on safety laws or some shit. But I am digressing. Japan will not have a serious weight problem like the US does.


I saw a page today with some very unique pieces of art.

Every work featured on this page, as you may have guessed, is created out of one single sheet of paper. Silhouettes are created by the negative space, and the pieces that were cut out were folded together to look like objects, like houses.

I am most impressed by the vine-style cutouts.

disclaimer: the second to last piece is make by TWO sheets! Those liars.

Food Review 2

This morning, I am preparing myself one of these:

(As usual you can click for a bigger picture)

The Jimmy Dean logo has a J shaped like a boot, which is fitting seeing as how he's branded as a cowboy or something. If I talk about this some more it would just be a rant I don't want to get to, since this is a food review!

How I prepared it:
I kept the croissants in the plastic (Removed the cover) and microwaved for two minutes.

And what the hell is THIS? It's like a cheese tumor.

The croissants themselves kind of came out stiff when bit into.

The best part was the sausage. As you know, Jimmy Dean sausage is pretty reputable and it certainly wasn't a disappointment, but it felt weird in the low quality of the rest of the croissant. However, the entire dish works as a quickly prepared breakfast dish if you need to get to work quickly. And if they have clean restrooms.

I rate it 6 cheese tumors out of 10.

If you don't know what Minecraft is, it's a little game that is classified as a "sandbox" game. Basically, it's a blocky world where you gather and mine for resources, and if you have a difficulty then you need to survive. I won't say much about it but you can check out the game through this link.

Let me tell you about my design philosophy in Minecraft. I have my interiors 3 blocks high with a floor/ceiling on the 4th tile. I start this pattern at sea level. This means that sea level is my first floor, and I hop up 4 blocks to get to another floor. Etc, etc.

A little bit OCD, right?

This is from the "lobby" of my current stronghold in my latest map. This view goes out to a mountain, and on my next post I will post more screenshots if there is some interest.
Mentally, I am currently on exploration/survival mode, not so much creativity mode.

Food Review

I feel I should review things I eat. It's something I wanted to do for a while and I consume a lot of fast food. My first review will be about Zaxby's.

Zaxby's is a chain fast food restaurant with some locations where I live. Yesterday, I ordered the following for lunch:

- Boneless Wing (Meal Dealz)

First off I will say, I really love the toasted bread and the fries, and obviously the chicken from Zaxby's. I found the size of the wings on this plate to be a little too small, but the flavor from the sauce (I got tongue torch) was really, really good. The plate didn't come with toast either, but it's fine.

Overall I give it a 7/10. And my first review is pretty bare. :/

My first blog

I decided I am just going to blog about video games.

Today I did an awesome Flav CTF where I was the hero of the day.

Also, I suck at SC2.
