blowing shit up @ 09:15 pm

Well, the day was spent preparing to blow shit up. In planetarion, it is a very much building based game. Basically what you do is build things to aid you in blowing things (people whatever) up. Its been around for a couple of years but they've totally rewirtten the thing now and I'm one of very very few whose been asked to test things. The cool thing is we get to practice and play and blow shit up and people don't get mad at you when you blow themup because for sure you're just testing the thing out. I got to use my spy tactics (built into the game) to attempt to ssteal, rape, and generally cause much destruction all in the name of testing. Not many have totally perfected (researched) their attacking tactics yet, so the blowing people up shit will all happen tomorrow. They're starting at 5 a.m. tomorrow and I might just get up early just so I get a head start at the explosion etc.

I really like games such as these because I can't play the graphical games all you sighted people get to play. So this game is a web based game and its all good because I am totally on a equal playing field with everyone and it really does rock.

It rained this morning but that was about it as far as rain. It pretty much left the day quite sticky and humid though it was a bit cooler than previous days. I was glad to be inside for sure though.

Well, I suppose I'll go to bed so I can get up tomorrow just for the hell of it. Why, because I can, and because I really want to get out of the habit of getting up at the late hour of 9 a.m., I know I know that's not late for the majority of the world, but for me it is damnit.

Well, with that, more later.

That game, and your strategy, sound totally disturbing.

I suppose, yet if you played any video games, there are many such as like Mortal Combat that are 1 billion times more disturbing :).

Right you are, they are also disturbing, perhaps more. Cept I only play Tony Hawk Pro Skater, so if he falls down and gets bloody it is his own damn fault, haha.

Hmm, if you were really blowing shit up ... That might become nasty. But, seeing as how you're a chemical engineer, I'm sure you know this.
Hm, but I think that I could make a living blowing shit up. Well, maybe not sure, but things. So, would this be the definition of working while you play?

Blowing shit up definitely is fun, and yes, I'm just practicing for the real thing once I beomc a chemical engineering. I really think i'd be fun working for a pyrotechnics company, all the cool chemicals to mix etc. Though I might then have to move to China which wouldn't be the greatest, and there was just a fireworks factory that got blown up a bit ago and that'd not be cool to be there when that happened.
