For the BF2 fans..

Lots of useful information about the US military is here. The attack helicopter in BF2 for USMC is a Cobra not an Apache!

BF2 Expansion

Here is some very good information about the kits and changes in the coming Special Forces expansion for BF2. The ziplines seem especially cool since you can have whole squads zipping down a line. Of course, I would love to just cut that line mid zip so everyone on the line falls to their inevitable demise. Or better yet, C4 the end of the line, wait for them all to land, and BOOM. Support gets some Tear Gas and Assault gets Flash Bangs.

One thing of note is that they actually point out what RPG originally stood for. (Hint: It's not Rocket Propelled Grenade)

The new vehicles seem pretty cool. The ATV and Jet Skis in particular. Those transport boats in BF2 suck so much as they have no armor and seem to have innate C4 capability as they explode quite easily.

Addendum: Think before you reload! Apparently, ammo in BF2 is loaded in discrete amounts equal to the clip size. This means that if you have a 30 round magazine, shoot 1 bullet, then reload, you lose the remaining 29 bullets. This was probably implemented to make the support class more viable.

The End

Well, it's over. A brilliant pitching performance by Backe, wasted again by Lidge. Of course, we had all the opportunities in the world to score, and didn't. But nonetheless, congradulations on the Astros for a great season!

Well, I finally got moderated on a forum. I posted the following message in response to a person asking for "cheats, unlimited ammo, etc" for BF2 in rather broken English.

I think if you hold down Alt + K key, then release K and while still holding Alt, press F4, you get the unlimited everything cheat.

On a serious note, the game really isn't that hard vs bots. Just get a bit more practice in and get used to how the individual weapons function.

Now, perhaps I was a bit too convincing, or perhaps this particular person just wasn't familiar with Windows. Apparently, this person tried it and I assume it exited BF2 for him. He wasn't too happy and marked this post for "trolling." I should have posted that he needed to send me money too. I could have been rich!

For the record, if anyone needs "cheats, unlimited ammo, etc" for BF2, please send $500 US in small unmarked bills to me.

For the inquiring mind.

In case anyone is curious, here are the stats for the #1 ranked BF2 player in the world. A kill streak of 57!!! Geez....

Minor Irritation

Okay, I don't understand. Why even pitch to Pujols when first base is open? I mean okay you are up by 2 with 2 outs. One of the best hitters in the league is up. Why not just walk him and face the guy with the injured neck? Pujols has the speed of a crippled hippo so he's no threat on the bases anyways. But Astros will win the next game and erase this minor annoyance. GO 'STROS!!

For my own personal benefit.... Part II.

According to this article, top tier professional gamers make about $130,000 a year. Getting paid for blogging, getting paid to be addicted to a game... Maybe I'll be a professional disaster experiencer. $200k for an earthquake, $150k for a Hurricane, $500k for a airplane forced landing, I would be rich!

For my own person benefit...

Because of recent events,
I have decided that my normal life is not worth living. It's time to turn this blog into a hulking machine of capitalism and dedicated to the public good. (I am part of public..)

Priestly Volcabulary

Sooooo, apparently some priests feel very strongly about Harry Potter....

Okay, this is crazy....

I can deal with extra fingers, or ears growing on a mouse's back, but this is just a little too creepy for me.....
