Probably dumb and pointless.

Update: So I just got an email back from Clorox and, as expected, no dice. Oh well. It was a slightly-amusing idea, I think.
Hi David, Thank you for contacting us. We don't currently carry a product that fits your description. We're sorry if this has caused any inconvenience. Again, thank you for contacting us. Sincerely, Consumer Services

So I've just got a random idea. I'd like to acquire a Clorox Bleach container, but one that's never had any bleach or other chemical in it. So I could fill it with a beverage and drink from it. Great idea? Greatest idea? You be the judge. I figure the only way I could get a hold of one, would be the contact the company itself. So let's try.

First, I'll try to email them.

Also, I'll send them a tweet.

Will it work? I'm guessing not. But it's late and this is when I tend to get stupid ideas. If anyone out there has any idea how I might acquire one of these (NOT cleaned! It has to have never had any actual bleach or other chemicals in it.) let me know.

If I get a response one way or the other, I'll update this post.

The cusp of greatness.

Update: I know this was posted on April 1st but it's not a joke.

Update 2: WayForward (creators of the Shantae series) are on board! Twitter post.

Gentlemen, ladies, we have a great task before us. Fate has handed us an opportunity that may never come again and we must seize it. On this day, of all days, Nintendo has put up this page allowing us to vote on what characters we'd like to see in the new Smash Bros for Wii U and 3DS.

Our mission, which we have been waiting for all our lives, is to go to that page and vote for Shantae. "Who is Shantae?" you ask. I respond by slapping your face.


Shantae is one of the most awesome characters and game series to come along in a while. Here's a trailer from the most recent title, Shantae and the Pirate's Curse. It's available for both 3DS and Wii U.

And here's a (very early) Kickstarter trailer for their upcoming, fully HD game Shantae Half Genie Hero.

It's an amazing series with an awesome main character. The previous game, Shantae Risky's Revenge is also available on PC via Steam. Either way, I encourage you to give the series a look. Once you do you'll know why we must get Shantae in Smash Bros.

So I BEG you, go Vote for Shantae right now!

Uruk fails at running away.

Most of the time when I upload footage from my PS4, I don't make a post here about it. This time I had to, since this is too funny. I was chasing an Uruk and he decided to run away, he didn't do so well. Have a look.

If you think is as funny as I do, please share it with others. I'd appreciate it.

PS4 HDD upgrade.

I just recently upgraded my PS4 HDD to a 2TB drive and thought I'd share. The process was surprisingly easy. I ordered an external HDD, cracked it open and pulled out the drive. I put that in the PS4 and it's working great. Instead of going into great detail about the process, I'll post a video done by someone else on the subject.

The one I ordered, and recommend, is this one: Seagate Backup Plus 2 TB Portable Hard Drive STDR2000100, Black

If you give this a shot, let me know how it works for you.

You know what pisses me off? "Social Justice" #GamerGate

Up until a few months ago, I had no idea that there was a movement, if you can call it that, called "social justice" or what a "social justice warrior" was. What I've come to realize, in the last 5-6 months of GamerGate, is that "social justice" is a complete sham. It's filled with the WORST people I've ever run into, on or off the Internet.

Let me tell you something. I've spent a lot of time on the Internet, too much, honestly. I've been in chat rooms, newsgroups, online games, forums, comments sections, all over. I've seen some terrible, terrible groups of people. I've NEVER seen any group as bad as "social justice warriors."

I've never seen more racism, more hate, more bigotry, more awfulness of all descriptions from any other group of people. These people have latched onto the GamerGate movement like a disgusting, diseased barnacle trying to suck attention and recognition from it. They slander thousands of men and women, gay and straight, bi and trans, in the name of "justice."

They lie, they cheat, and yes, they steal. They cry "harassment!" at anyone who disagrees or tries to argue their poorly thought out, poorly researched points. They make up controversies and use them to solicit donations to fight the made-up harassment. They make promises they don't intend to keep and put forth arguments they have no intention of defending.

They prey on people's fears and prejudices all while accusing others of doing exactly what they do every single day. If you could harnass the amount of projection from these people, you could use the moon to screen the next Avengers movie. I'm not going to name any names, but if you've been paying any attention to GamerGate then you probably know at least a few of these "people."

I don't really have a proper conclusion, I just wanted to rant a bit and point out what I truly believe are the worst people on the Internet. And yes, I realize the gravity of that statement, but I believe it's true. I'm sick of these people and if you've spent more than 5 minutes around them, you would be too.

One more thing. I just wanted to add that I'm ALL FOR women in tech, diversity, rights for everyone, all that stuff. I'm just not a fan of the cult that calls itself "social justice."
