Ugh. I stayed up all night to work on http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Real_Adventures_of_Jonny_Quest, and now I feel pretty terrible. But I got a lot of work done.

Damn that's pretty extensive.  Never was much of a Quest guy but I do remember that show coming out.  The intro was pretty damn sweet if I recall correctly, with the green lights and they shaped the outline of a ravine or something like that.  The music was also damn good in that intro.

Wow, I know...way more about Johnny Quest than I would have had you not written that. Fascinating bit about the hubbub over the inclusion of a female main character.

I'm pissed at Iran's Ayatollah for at the very least sanctioning his people's subjection to things that induce bleeding, and I hope Rafsanjani boots him per the constitutional fine print they theoretically have over there.

Nah, it messed up his post count of 1337 on that account.

When he reached that number, he made a new account to immortalize it.

Good job Z! You're so good at using proper references! The article turned out to be very detailed and informative. I'm sure you're an ACE at writing academic papers. I could learn a thing or two from you lol. I can never seem to get my references right.

I lost to the fifth member of the "elite 4" in platinum cause I forgot that these pokemon games have an extra boss to beat. And I lost cause I didn't bring enough healing items with me! I guess that was annoying, but the battles just leveled up my Gyrados and Giratina so I should be unstoppable next time.

Over the last week, pokemon has completely consumed my life! I spend up to 10 hours or even more a day on it... but after I beat the elite 4, I won't really be playing at all cause I don't want to complete my pokedex. Doing that was great when there were 150 pokemon, but now that there are 500, it's too much XD.

What will I do without pokemon! I guess I could find something more productive to do with my time XD.

The Elite Four and Cynthia are significantly harder to beat in Platinum, I found.

TRAIN UP TRAIN UP

Have your party at lv45-50 and you'll be fine.

Yeah, that whole world of distortion sucks so much. there is no way to level up your pokemon, and if you're stupid like me, you brought a bunch of shitty pokemon into there thinking there would be a way to level them up... then you're stuck  jumping around rocks for half an hour before Cyrus completely kicks your ass. I had to go in there a second time and then I barely managed to beat him (mainly cause I used a ton of items)

Ok, then don't bring crappy pokemon. lol. Mine were around that level too, and I had crappy pokemon with me.

Bring a ton of hyper potions and you should be fine.

Giratina is a bitch to catch, btw. I went through about 8 ultraballs(and then 5 or maybe more other random pokeballs). What worked for me, the down b trick... lol. No one even knows if it's fake or not, but I swear by it XD. Also, make sure to put it to sleep.

Only 8 ultra balls? Lucky. In Silver, it took around 30 ultra balls and 50 great balls, until a pokeball and down b (yes I do that too) caught it. On a low battery, too!

Frustration: My laptop is at the computer doctor. I think he might have to wipe the drive. And I just got new RAM, too... wonderful timing.
