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.

Marshmallows

Posted April 14th, 2012 at 09:29 PM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

This is perhaps an odd blog even for me. Marshmallows are a part of camping fun as a part of the smore trifecta and team up with hot chocolate on a cold day.

The reason for this title is that I had eaten my first batch of marshmallows in over 15 years. Yes, you read that correctly: 15 years. There's a backstory to why I haven't had marshmallows in such a long time. Or maybe it's a reason not to eat food that is past its expiration date. Either way...

If I recall...

23 years and many replacement parts later... it still works!

If any of you ever felt like playing some of the games you grew up with our were popular when you were very young, well it happened to me recently.

A few years ago, I showed everybody on my blog a picture of what my old Nintendo Entertainment System looked like after nearly 20 years of use and abuse. I lost the door many years ago, there was a major crack down the top of it and my friend replaced the 72-pin connector well before that picture was taken. Since that time, I bought...

Paid for something you never bought? Talk to management!

We have all had moments where we buy something and we discover we were overcharged or paid for something we never actually bought. Most of the time, we sort of do nothing to rectify it because we don't realize it. At least that is what I think.

My Mom and I went food shopping as usual on the weekends. I went with her to help out because she had a tweaked knee. So we go get our groceries and she went to pay for it while I made a quick stop to get some tortilla chips for my weekly...

Snowtober aftermath

If Mother Nature was trying to send us a message, we got it loud and clear.

This past weekend has been one I haven't experienced. Not because it snowed in late October, but it was the loss of power, phones, heat and constant cold for 3 days that I haven't experienced in my life.

Spoiler:


This is how much snow we got when the power went out.


The snow itself being so clumpy and leaves still on branches...

Major problems!

Posted October 31st, 2011 at 04:37 PM by Mario The World Champion (The Final Countdown!)

If anyone here @ PC can read this, that snow i took pictures of on Saturday has gotten really bad where i live. We had complete power loss on Saturday night, leaving my Mom and I without lights, heat and phones, both cell and landline. Cell phone service is spotty, but i can get through right now. The snow was heavy due to it being clumped together and there were still leaves on the tress, which the snow weighed down on the branches, causing them to snap and fall on power lines. From what my...
