    Thanks a bunch! Great job to you too, we all worked really hard at this!

  • #photographer I took this one of an angel statue in our garden outside It’s bit eerie if you ask me…..

  • @romanalister Loving the Thor picture! :D Avengers fans have to stick together!

    • the Avengers is AMAZING!

      • I know!! I can’t wait to see The Amazing Spider-Man. You guys seen it? My brother has, and he keeps telling me how good it is.

        • I cant wait either, my sisters taking me to see it this week!

          • Really? You’ll have to update your activity and tell everyone how it is! Also, let me know about the soundtrack. I know, weird question, but I go crazy over good scores. Danny Elfman did an incredible job with the first two movies…this new one sounded pretty generic.
            Do you like the Batman series, too?

            • That’s not a weird question:) At my summer camp me and my friends kept doing movie sound tracks with our voices:) I love the pirates of the carribean soundtrack!

    In reply to: ashura0 posted an update #highscore I have mario cart double dash for the gamecube (remake of Mario Cart for the NES) abd have achived gold in every cup. (50cc, 100cc, 150cc, and Mirror) and unlocked all […] View

    No problamo ;) It’s a great game!

  • #highscore I chose Mario Kart Double Dash for the Gamecube, which was a remark from the NES system’s Mario Kart (which I used to play almost religiously when we still had one). I’ve been playing Double Dash for half my life, and have gotten a lot better at it. I finally won gold on the 150cc Flower Cup with a time of around ten minutes. :D I…[Read more]

    • Give it a shot and add it as an attachment or something – Double Dash is a pretty replayable game.

      Also, Mario Kart, the original, was for the SNES, but it came out in 1992, so I can see the logic on it (Double Dash is more a sequel than a remake, though – if you’ve got the original stashed somewhere, try that out, too. You’ll find it…[Read more]

  • #byfoot The other day I walked around the surrounding neighborhoods that are nicer and more nature covered than my own. I walked a little over two miles through the neighborhood and my own. It’s fun to house-watch, and pick out which ones you’d prefer to live in. My favorite was an adorable Bavarian style house that you’d expect to see in…[Read more]

    • Is that because you like living in one or because you think that if you live in a fairy-tale house, you have a higher probability of a fairy tale happening to you?

      • Both, I’d imagine! X)

        • Well, if that ever happens, just be sure to follow the appropriate rituals for not irritating Fae residents, and you’ll have a fine time. (At least until they start angling to replace a kid with a changeling. That usually involves Epic Quests and hashing it out with the nobility of the Fae Court.)

    Thanks for the advice, I’ll certainly take that to heart. ;)

    #allstar Phew! I’ve finally made it to this point! Along the way, I’ve thought about various careers involving animals, got to read a lovely mystery, discovered more about some of my favorite artists, got in touch with my inner gardener, whiled away the time with reading, enjoyed a fascinating astronomy show, played a few rounds of Mario Kart, …[Read more]

      There’s still one more summit to climb, though. See you at the Hall of Famer level.

  • #scienceTV Today, I had the pleasure to sit down and watch all three parts to Into the Universe with Stephen Hawking. I was excited to find a nice Discovery documentary about the universe because I’m a nut for anything to do with astronomical science. ^_^ Not only was each part informative, intriguing, and insanely interesting, but the narrator…[Read more]

  • #learntoplay I recently picked up a Gameboy color and some games, and have been teaching myself how to play Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening. It’s fun to get back into little handheld videogames, and I’ve been browsing websites for walkthroughs when it gets complicated for me. :) Basically, the story is that Link washes up on the shores of…[Read more]

    • How are you liking it? It sometimes seems like the best Zelda games are the ones that stay true to the ”explore things, find stuff, use it” model.

      • It’s definitely addicting, that’s for sure! It’s a little frustrating as most older games are, but I always feel satisfied when I figure something out on my own. ;)

        • ”A Little Frustrating” as in, ”We expect you to remember where Widget A was when Dwarf B talked about it on your own” instead of having an automap point the way?

          • A bit like that, yeah. Mostly along the lines of trying to figure out what to do without any tips on what to try to defeat a villain/solve a puzzle

            • For someone who’s used to all the help, it can be tough having to just remember things. That, and what might be an obvious puzzle to those of us with experience on our side (heh) might be new to someone who has used modern stuff most of the time.

  • #stats South Korean archer Im Dong-hyun set the world mark on Friday at the Olympics. He set the 72-arrow event at 699 points. The catch? He’s legally blind, with only 10% and 20% in each eye. Color me impressed and inspired!

    • I was very impressed with that, too. Whatever it is, it’s enough for him to have qualified nicely. I think he’ll do / has done quite well in the finals.

      • It’s a really inspirational thing if you think about it. I’m thinking about taking up archery for various reasons, and this is certainly one of them.
