Fun night for me tonight...

I was doing chest work at the gym tonight, and was doing an exercise on the cable crossover machine. Long story short, you push the cables forward and downward for a modified chest press. I racked each side of the machine at 150lbs, but my left elbow has been strangely injured so I had one of my workout buddies help me pull the cable over to my ready position. He obliged, and as I began to push the cables forward, the ENTIRE machine fell over on my buddy who helped me, hitting him on the back of his head and jerking my left arm out of place. I panicked....I thought I just killed him, the machine weighs in excess of 200lbs without the extra 150 per side, and being that I'm pushing it all forward my own force added to it...I was freaked. He walked off to the side clutching the back of his head while I pushed the machine back up with 2 other guys. After I checked to make sure I wasn't bleeding, I went upstairs to see how he was holding up. No bleeding, he was coherent, and outside of a definite bump tomorrow, he said he was fine, just hurts.

I still feel shakey. The sheer impact hitting him could have cracked his skull....but the amount of weight and force behind it...it could have broke his neck...or worse, he could have slipped and the whole thing fell on him... I can't stop thinking about it. Granted, the machine wasn't secured to the ground, and I followed correct safety for the exercise, but I still feel responsible. I pushed over massive machine and nearly killed someone. This is an uncool feeling.

Oh yay! just got the letter I was *so* looking forward to:

"Please pay us, within 5 business days, $2500 that you don't have and have no way of acquiring. Thank you!"
I just get phone calls to that extent.

The only complicated part of Kingdom Hearts was the addition of a bunch of games that add story that wasn't needed and entirely less compelling then the main story.

Just got myself set up on this. Been ages since I played with irc....last time was on a psp.

In any case, region locking isn't the greatest evil ever. I'm not against it, but I'm not for it either. I buy US games, so it doesn't bug me. For you people who can read and understand multiple languages, I do feel some level of sympathy for you.

That being said now, Xbone sucks, let's continue bitching about it.

Well, being region free sold a good number of PS3.
Not being region free didn't exactly slow down wii and 360 sales though.

Or DS.

Or 3DS.

Pretty sure gameboy didn't allow other region carts either.

Another recommendation, make use of the fact that pawns can be raised immediately upon death, so you can sit back and let them pick on stuff.

You said you wanted to be melee...so why'd you pick mystic knight? They're not terribly awesome for melee use. You'd have better luck ignoring the bow and using a strider, or better yet a warrior or fighter if you must have a shield. Mystic knights are great when maxed out, but only after picking up a substantial amount of dp for upgrades to their spells. Otherwise, warriors hit way harder and get clout and bastion (20% to offense and defense respectively). Mystic Knight is more mdef oriented. If anything, level as a sorcerer for a while to build some magic attack.

I still say try assassin. It's arguably the best class as far as melee is considered.

19:00 pdt is pretty late, midnight here. I'll try, though.

I do have one awesome memory of ffxi, now that I think about it.

Parn was on ventrillo with me one day and iirc he was in the den of rancor. Now this was a few years back so my exact recollection of details is lacking, but he was fighting a bomb NM and got some aggro. This part is better explained by him, but the part I enjoyed was when he had obviously chose a new target and attempted to change his target back.to the bomb nm...only he wasn't having such luck. A few moments of still not targetting resulted in a memory I will never forget.

Parn, the normally level headed individual who keeps calm when insulting or arguing, lost it and shouted over the headset "TARGET THE FUCKING BOMB!!!". Seriously, I had never heard such rage over a headset...outside my own while playing mega man 9. It was hysterical, I couldn't stop laughing.

God I wish I recorded it.

I like the sound of that, but being that I've given up on a new pc for a while...I'm mildly limited to cell phone use. If you do decide to do it via irc, can anyone recommend a good android irc app?
