Fuck I have too much shit to pack.
Fuck I have too much shit to pack.
So let me tell you about this beautiful, open world app staring you, and my first experience with it.
So after seeing this app about 2 hours ago (at time of writing) I saw it was free and decided “Ehh, why not, I’ve got nothing better to do today.” So I downloaded this app, put it on my phone, signed in with my sexy google account, and started.
First off this app does a good job of making me feel like I’m walking around hacking and boy I wish I could say that without making me sound like I do nothing but sit on my ass and eat cheetos all day, but I digress. The goal is you’re supposed to walk around your neighborhood, find portals, and hack them, rinse repeat. It did a good job of getting me off of my ass and walking around my neighborhood.
So I get up and decide I’ll go for a walk in my Matte Black Metallica T-Shirt in 400 billion degree weather. Now, the app says portals are usually found at famous landmarks and things. Being where I live, there aren’t too many landmarks, but it was enough I had three portals within 1km of me. So I let the app do its thing and it scanned the area to tell me where they were, and I noticed the first was 200m away from me, so I walked over there and I immediately recognized it as my local church. The portal itself was located smack-dab in the middle of the actual building, meaning I had to walk inside the church, press hack, wait around a bit, then walk out. But the thin is the church was crowded with people, and my predominately atheist self wearing my Metallica shirt with skulls and other stuff that probably wouldn’t fly in a church, I decided I’d skip this one and take a walk to the next one which was about 850m away. It was at this point, walking away from the church that I thought: “This feels like a sandbox game, like watchdogs or something, but instead of some unfeeling protagonist who steals cars and drives over old ladies, I’m myself, with self-consciousness issues.”.
So anyway I walked to the next portal and this one, get this, was also another church, though this church had a huge outdoor section, and had few people there so I managed to sneak by and wait in the outdoor area for a bit so my hack could be completed. This’ll sound weird, but I felt a sense of accomplishment. I had just stealthed my way through a bunch of guards to complete some important hack, and then snuck back out and no one was the wiser. Now that I remember it though, there was one guy who might have noticed but he was re-painting the sign and I don’t think he gave a shit.
I then started making my way to the third one which was quite a far ways out, but then I got to open road and I’d rather not risk getting run over just to have another hack.
If you ever wanted to feel like you were on some secret mission or something, hacking for the greater good (or evil if that’s your thing), then this is definitely worth the download.
tl;dr: Download this motherfucker.
"My mind knows I’m better off without you. I will find someone who will make me forget the pain you caused me. My heart, however, still aches. I still see you in my dreams. I still love you in sleep."
I still fucking love you. (via missinyouiskillingme)
Its been an emotional few days. My job is starting to beat down on me even more. Only last night I drove home from work, and just sat in my car. I didn’t get out for over an hour… I was just listening to music… Crying, wishing my heart would just give its last beat. I broke down… I got back inside and started going through my mums old records and found this. A signed copy of Mallee Boy for my mum and my dad… I decided to give it a clean and put it on and it broke me again.. “I’m Wishing on a post card, that you were here with me”.
The record had a few pops and scratches, probably from my ignorance as a child… So I started scouting ebay and found one in mint condition a couple suburbs over. I picked it up tonight and had a listen and it was clear as day. Breaking me again…
Ill start another new life in Nelson Bay with my partner soon. I will be free of Apollo, and we will be running a business instead of being run into the ground by one.
The sun will shine again soon. I will burn brightly.
So I make about $120 a day.
That $120 is for hours worked between 9am and 5:30pm, while usually staying behind until 6. I am required to Maintain, and add products to a website, and sell products.
It also includes the following:
Not getting paid enough for this shit! If I were being paid 40-60 buck an hour I’d put up with it, but this is many times more stress than most jobs that require less knowledge pay many times more.

Are fucking kidding me? I have been sitting at home and constantly watching the news after the events of yesterday. For those of you who are wondering, I am a junior at REYNOLDS HIGH SCHOOL! I was there when the shooter kept running in the halls trying to open the doors and get in. I was there in the dark praying and crying while my librarian kept saying ” they’ll have to kill me before they touch my kids” I have known her for three years, her determination to keep us safe broke her heart. Seeing this, that little children need protection in school. Are we sending kids to a battlefield? I have three little brothers ranging from 5-10, and still people have the nerve to speak about the second amendment? Really? I can’t even type anymore. I’m so disgusted and frustrated. When will you realize that it’s important to have gun control? When a shooter is pointing a gun at your child? Is that when you’ll realize that guns aren’t something to be kept around. People say it’s a free country but honesty, this country is more oppressed and diseased than any other country.
Show me ONE instance where gun control and gun free zones prevented school shootings.
Let me tell you guys a story.
In 1996, in a little town in Australia called Port Arthur, a gunman killed 35 and injured 23. This place was a tourist attraction, with plenty of visitors and locals going about their business.
35 people died.That’s 35 marriages, anniversaries, birthdays or uni degrees. 35 people left Port Arthur in body bags.
At the time, we had a pretty conservative government, and the Prime Minister at the time (in hindsight) was kind of a dick. But within two weeks of the shooting, Howard instituted a massive reform and buyback of all firearms.
But it must be a statistical flaw, you say, there weren’t that many massacres before 1996, right? No, WRONG.
In the eighteen years leading up to Port Arthur, there had been 13 mass shootings.
But April, you ask, this couldn’t possibly have worked could it? Wouldn’t it only have reduced the mass shootings? WRONG.
Since 1996, there have been ZERO mass shootings. That’s right, ZERO. FUCKING ZILCH. There have been scattered homicides, however:
How many schools have been raided and children murdered? NONE.
How many film buffs have been murdered in their seats? NONE.
How many innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun? NONE.
On top of this, homicides involving the use of guns, and youth suicide involving the use of guns has declined dramatically, by up to 60%
Australia, however much the environment tries to kill you, is a safe haven, and you can walk the streets with 99% assurance that you won’t fall victim to a drive by shooting.
Your move, America.
I’d like to take a moment to correct some facts with the above, because while it has falsehoods in it, it undermines it’s own point:
There has been one mass shooting since Port Arthur. 2 people died, 5 were injured. Huan Yun “Allen” Xiang walked into his classroom at Monash University, and opened fire. He was stopped while switching guns, because of the limit in ammo capacity on all guns owned by civilians in Australia.
Also, the claim that no innocent lives have been lost to the barrel of a gun, is false. While there’s been no mass murders, there is still the occasional shooting death, however, they are isolated incidents. This doesn’t mean you can write them off, though.
Also, of note, the American National Rifle Association, the NRA, released claims that violent crime in Australia increased because of these new laws. They were reprimanded, and accused of falsifying government statistics, by the Federal Attorney General.
That’s right… The NRA literally made up fake statistics just to try to force their point across.
I’d like to add that the other night, a boy of 18 or so was shot because of a State of Origin (massive football game) argument. Gun control has helped. It didn’t eradicate the problem, but its pretty damn close.
Every time I hear of another mass shooting in ‘Murica, all I can say to myself is “not this shit again!”
This. Gonna fit a supercharger to my 3800 block now
Finally got rid of her. Plenty of fond memories and maintenance bills. Time to make new memories in my muscle car (may drop a v8 into it, getting my open license tomorrow)
