2012 brings new things to discover as well as uncertainty about the future. It also brings more of that 2012 doomsday BS that has been running rampant the past few years, despite common sense and scientists actually proving that the predicted Mayan doomsday will not happen! But that still doesn't stop idiots like Discovery Channel, History Channel, Patrick Geryl and other morons from continuing to shove their doomsday shows and books down our throats!

Since the world will end in 356 days from now (we are in a leap year, so we have the 29th of February), I've decided to have my own fun with this "phenomenon". Don't worry, I'm not going to talk about how the earth will suddenly reverse its magnetic fields or anything like that. I lack the intelligence to make sense of that stuff.

The reason for this title if I'm not going to talk about 2012? A certain 80's song that critics think is probably the worst song in history.

I must be sick... I raced two endurance races in a row!

Posted February 8th, 2009 at 01:03 AM by Mario The World Champion

Ever since I got laid off and I have nothing to do now, that means I have a lot of free time. My first week out of work consisted of sleeping, watching TV, going to sign up for unemployment, PC, playing Commodore 64, video games and DVDs.

Forza Motorsport 2 is one of my favorite games of all time. It's a racing game for the Xbox 360, one of the 3 games I got when I first got my 360 nearly a year ago. There are a ton of races in there for you to compete in, but the big money makers are the endurance races. Those are long races that require you to make a pit stop or two to keep going. So, that means the laps range from 20 to 40 depending on the length of the track. They have the mighty Nurburgring in the game and that's a 7-lap race, but the lap there is nearly 13 miles long!

But back to what I'm talking about. I can complete those endurance races, but I have a hard time focusing on my racing due to the fact I can fall asleep easily during it. The game has no music playing while you're racing, so I always use the 360's ability to play your music saved in your hard drive and play that in games to add in some punch while playing. However, even with that, I will pass out like a log later than sooner. Now that I've been sleeping a lot these days, I just felt like playing a race and make some big money in my game.

So, after over an hour of racing, I win the race and pocket well over $350,000 in credits. I was satisfied, but I felt I could do a few more standard races. But for some reason, I selected a lower class race car and went off to do another endurance race!! And again, I won that one after an hour of racing. I pocketed more credits and I realized something.

I did two endurance races IN A ROW!!! And I never passed out like a log!! I guess all that extra sleeping helped out! I haven't done two endurance races in a row in years. Back when I was playing Gran Turismo 2 or 3.

So, I must be sick. Very sick. I think I'll do to sleep now. XD

*passes out*

    Why not go look for other employment?

    I wouldn't let yourself get into the lazy mindset for an extended period of time; its hard to get out of.

    What do you think I've been doing for the past week?!!! NOBODY IS HIRING!!! Everybody's trying to get whatever they can and there's not a lot. It's discouraging.

    Just be glad you're not in my position.

    I wish they will start hiring. They want to hang on to their money for themselves and themselves alone. At least you had something to do to keep you sane when you do look for a job. It will come just don't give up. But yeah they need to start hiring.
