Grape NOS is pretty good. You should try it.

Oh, and AASHTO, your manual over-designs all your concrete structures to the extreme yet when it comes to surcharge live loads on a vertical surface from vehicles you just add 2-4 ft of soil loading? What? That doesn't make any sense! I somehow doubt 2 more feet of soil is the equivalent to a 26 kip wheel load.

Mental note, I totally need to stop using this cap-less red pen as a book mark, my hand looks really funny now from running into it.

I can't tell if I want to do laundry tonight or go out drinking...maybe both?

Anyway, back to work. Here's something to laugh at, bonus points if you can turn it into a funny de-motivational poster:

EDIT: Actually, no, I shall suspend my social life and try to finish the Special Edition of Barney's Mind - Episode 2. The Q&A pushed that back but now that it's done I should get back to it.

See, this is why I'm single, every time I want to go out and mingle with people who aren't close friends I usually just end up working on my various hobbies. You better be entertained dammit! :P

EDIT: We have a winner (unless you can do better):

Meeting of the Minds Q&A/FAQ

Alrighty! It's here: Clicky! Clicky! Clicky! Clicky!

It's over two hours (after editing out about 10 minutes of blarg) so it's going to take me a minute to cut it down and post it in YouTube videos (if I even do that). I was planning to edit out more but decided it was all just too funny and I had to leave it all in, so this is mostly un-cut.

Seriously, I'm really not wanting to do that. That's easily 20 videos...but then again I know it won't get seen as much if it's just on our blogs. Bah, I guess I'll do it.

Anyway, enjoy 2 hours of us ranting and trying (mostly without success) to stay on-topic.

P.S. While our videos do try to avoid swearing somewhat, this Q&A thing does not. So if you or your parents have strong opinions regarding certain 4 letter words then you have been warned. Though I did take one section where we all started swearing and added bleeps just cause it's so funny to hear it that way.

Q&A Update

Yeah, Q&A update. We recorded over 2 hours of audio which is obviously wayyyy to much. I'm editing it down but it's taking a while. Plus, I had a few things take over my time the last two days so I haven't done much work on it. Tonight's totally free though so I should get a bunch done. Don't worry, it will be up very soon.

EDIT: Here's a preview of the Q&A for you guys:

Yep, still here

So, yeah, long delay since my last blog post. My bad, was chewing through my backlog of stuff for my million and won hobbies.

Anyway, finally getting caught back up which means I should finally have some time for Barney's Mind! I've gotten the video done for the remake of Episode 2 and should have the audio done and have that up soon-ish. Episode 3 shouldn't be too far behind that one.

Then, once I have that done, it's on to Harrison's Mind (Alien vs Predator 2), which I'm really excited to start! Also, yes, I will continue to do the Ian's Mind series as well (since they take all of an hour to make, lol) though I'm going to do less of the single take, ad-lib format and do a little more scripted stuff (though, I hope to do everything in one take so that it still keeps that ad-libbed feel). Also, yes, I'm going to do other games besides Counter Strike.

Finally, the Q&A is on, will probably happen sometime this weekend. I shall edit it and post it onto YouTube (it will probably appear on each one of our channels so you won't miss it) for your viewing pleasure.
