These in game items will cost you your first born child… and second.

Hmmmm, next time I want to buy hats in TF2 I might just have to pop out some babies and sell them on the Chinese market.

A young unmarried couple in China are accused selling not one, but two of their children to human traffickers. The money they got was used for gaming.

The first son was an accident, the second one seems to have been planned specifically:

The mother got pregnant again, and, in an interview, explained that the father “likes buying items in online games, and he likes staying out all night at internet cafes.” Because the couple was apparently using their money for the father’s gaming, the parents then allegedly sold their second son to traffickers to avoid a financial burden.

It’s rather sad as well as mind boggling that they would go through all the trouble just to purchase in game items. Basically the mother allowing herself to become a baby factory just to honor her husband’s gaming habits. Sickening.

So I got my new RAID card, smart card bay and RAM. Everything but the RAID card works properly. Two out of three ain’t bad I guess? :S

It’s great to plug cards into the computer again! That means I won’t have to use just my laptop to upload porn errrr I mean pussy.

Since my last vacation was cut shorter than what I wanted it to be, I’ve reapplied for a part 2 at the end of the month so I can kick back again. I’m gonna need it since this summer has been pretty rough. The pay has been better than usual since I’ve been working full time, but the lack of people has really been hurting. Today I spent a good part of the day upstairs alone because same ol same ol. Oh well, the extra hours helped pay for my summer sale shenanigans. :v

Oh, and I was greeted with some packages tonight when I came home! Some clothes and the media bay I ordered. That was quicker than expected. Not gonna complain. :D

I looked up Irony and this is what I found

So I couldn’t help but notice that Fox News had a new graphic up that caught my eye.

Now I’m sure to most people who watch Fox News this just seems like an ordinary logo. So why am I making light of it?

So basically they just took bits and pieces of it off and added a couple more stars, and bam! Of course if you actually played BioShock Infinite like I have you’d laugh at the irony.

New Kitten!

I finally had a chance to take a photo of a new little scamp that runs around the house.

Morty

His name is Morty. He’s a Scottish Fold with 7 toes on each paw. He’s extremely adorable and very energetic for being only 6 weeks old.

Last night I went out to one of the local Mexican bars and had a good time with a friend I used to work with. He turned 21 and we sent him on the proper drunken path. :P

Then I came home and did some Borderlands 2. Also bought one of these for my desktop since my previous card reader borked out. It also never worked under Linux, so I figured this time around I’d get something that goes both ways (giggity). Especially since I use Linux and Windows fairly equally these days thanks to the holy Gaben and others following the power of the allmighty Tux.

Oh, and I tweaked some of my simulcasting options to other websites. So hopefully I properly spam them instead of talk to myself. I do enough of that on my free time anyway. :v

So he’s still alive

It turns out that the man that was hit in a car accident didn’t die after all! He was an elderly gentlemen with a cane. No wonder he couldn’t get out of the drivers way in time… Whoever they are I hope they get slapped with something deserving.
