Grading Papers sucks balls.  I have read 160 mind numbingly boring papers.  Now comes the rash of emails about how I was too harsh.  I get questions like, "Why you not like my papers?"  The answer is grammar.  Giving finals, not so bad.

grading lab reports or grading engineering finals -- electric ckts. 

But i have to be honest; i would rather do that than got to yet another boring meeting followed by another boring meeting followed by, you guessed it, yet anothe boring meeting.  they seem to never end.  I miss the grading; hell,I miss finals right about now, when faced with yet another day of endless meetings.

I also love the original mario kart.  My favorite part about Mario Kart is the lightning item.  Especially when someone who is winning and is about to jump off the ramp at Wario Stadium, I see that and just lightining the shit outta of him.  He get so pissed at me because he was this close to winning and I beat him.

wow does this take me back...

 

few things are better in life than hand-chopping your douchebag housemate to death when he tries to come kill you after you have respawned without a gun (though bouncing grenades around corners was fun too). 

 

come to think of it, a little goldeneye around here would go a long way -- the perfect method to settle arguments on mgoblog...

Until Halo I. That did me in when you could play everyone on campus. Three shot kill was an art.

Goldeneye? Still Awesome. There is a level where you set up proximity mines and snipe out a window and it is impossible to get to the person without sacrificing yourself many times.

id aim with the AR15 or AK47 and then shoot the prox mines and theyd explode - easy to clear a room.  that or toss grenade and set them all off.  cant remember if timed mines work the same way though...

 

prox mines were only super tricky on the boards where you could set them on the ceiling above where people walked, or below the floor (from a lower level).

to remember that you could place proximity mines high and tight into corners that were impossible to blow up without grenades. Even if you did shoot, no doubt the scumsucker who controled the pillbox was waiting at the top of the stairs ready to shoot you when you turned the corner because...secrets out...the slimesucker would be looking at your screen. Only reason I bumb Halo I above Goldeneye. You could play opponents on the LAN.

When I was a freshman in college, my friends and I were...well, we were stoned. We played Goldeneye. It goes down as my favorite video game experience ever. Someone mentioned it looked like Odd Job was giving a BJ to someone, and I lost it for about 20 minutes.

 

God I love Goldeneye. Effin proximity mines.

I'm amazed we even had a graduating class with everyone (women included) playing Tetris all the time, and we played everything from Bird vs. Dr. J to Need for Speed to even someone had a D&D game on a Commodore 64 (we subjected 1/2 a computer from the dorm room because of the negative effect that had on the room), but the two real time consumers were these-

We would see who could have the most kills, and I was obsessed with finding a way to save my wing man(/woman).  Couldn't be done.

And...

We had a whole dorm hall taking teams, so I think there were only 2-3 teams run by the computer. (We didn't know how good SF got as the season went on until later seasons, because the guy who picked them sucked).

And though not as big, since it has been mentioned here before....such a simple game took up way too much time...

Don't know why the examples only have two players...unless you had 4 or more, you weren't really playing...

Never did the drunken Mario Tennis, but we did alot of drunken Mario Kart.  I was the worst by far, and whoever didn't finish 1st had to do a shot.  I of course never came close to finishing 1st, but for some reason I never complained.

It was Mario Kart (we played Wii, could do it with N64 as well).

Before you start (on go) chug 1/3 of your beer. Race a lap. Stop before the line (if you cross you have to go back), chug 1/3 of your beer. Race a lap. Stop before the line, finish your beer (gotta be empty before you start the final lap)

If you win the race you get to keep playing. It was awesome. The only problem was if you were as competitive as my house, and you won 4 games or so. It wasn't a level of alcohol issue, but a volume issue. Races take like 2 minutes, so you've pounded about 4 beers in 8 minutes... and yet you dont want to lose!

good times...
