Please, God, deliver me from Texas, from Oklahoma, from ignorance, from pro-lifers, from rednecks, from jingoists, from cretins, from the lazy-minded, from the unempathetic, from the religious, from Evangelicals, from the blunt unintelligent, from this corrupted failure of humanity...

How long before you can move closer to a coast?

I don't know anymore...but that is my aim. Somewhere that I don't have to mask my own thoughts.

No. Jingoism is "Extreme nationalism characterized especially by a belligerent foreign policy; chauvinistic patriotism."

(On another note, this post ends my time as a "Sun Stoner")

I hate being ignored.





Especially by women, but just in general, and there's been a lot of both today.

Before you ask yourself, "why are they ignoring me?", maybe you should ask, "why should they be paying attention to me?"...ZEN~!!

Z, you really should visit Austin and certain parts of Dallas. Despite being in Texas, those two cities contain some of the most liberal leaning population groups in America. For example, the Cathedral of Hope is in Dallas; it also happens to be (or claims to be) the world's largest LGBT church in the world.

I simply have to say after getting my Nintendo 64 back up and running(finally), I've decided to play Donkey Kong 64 since I loved it except for a few things. Thinking now that I'm a better gamer I might be able to complete the things I couldn't before! And that was true for the most part. I head into Hideout Helm and everything's going great. Then I get to Diddy's jetpack portion of the level and remember why I ditched it in the first place.

DIDDY KONG IS FUCKING IMPOSSIBLE TO CONTROL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You want to move forward but not too much so as you miss these tiny little stars you have to fly through perfectly. Diddy's controls are pretty much press A for gas and use control stick to move, easy right? The only way he'll move is if you floor it and then he goes mach speed thus missing everything so you have to press many times, and then that winds up making it so when you press forward or any direction Diddy has to take about 8 seconds to get charged again before he'll listen. On top of this you have to hit all five stars in 60 seconds(ten of which are wasted getting Donkey Kong's fat ass to a barrel to switch with Diddy and then get Diddy in his jetpacks). And on top of this there is a lot more to the level but this is the one frustrating part. And to complete the whole level you have a time limit of one hour before the whole damn place blows up.

Donkey Kong 64.

Great game, extremely frustrating final level thanks to Diddy's shitty jetpack controls.

And on top of that, why the hell is Cranky Kong trying to prevent you from getting the necessary Rareware coin? Does he want Kong Island to get blown to bits? If he doesn't want you to have it he can at least say so which would be unrealistic and therefore give Donkey Kong the unrealistic right to punch him square in the face, kick Diddy's ass, pull a "Wanted(movie)" and curve the barrels after tossing them through all five stars and before King K. Rool can get away, unrealistic mutilate him.

Also I discovered when my friends got hold of it a ways back that they deleted my perfect game on my most liked game besides CT or CC or RD, Majora's Mask.

Today has been kicking my ass all over and I wanna kick it back.

I want to vent more but this post is already probably ridiculously long, and I don't have Twinkies... :evil:

Donkey Kong 64... I think I might just have to go pop in the ol' cartridge after you talking about it. Good times...

Yeah, besides Diddy's packs it's one of the best N64 games there is.
