true true

What deep thinkers men are... I mowed the lawn  today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer. The day was  really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep  thinking.

My Gf walked by and asked me what I was  doing and I said 'nothing'. The reason I said that instead of saying  'just thinking' is because she would have said 'about what'. At that  point I would have to explain that men are deep thinkers about various  topics which would lead to other  questions.

 Finally I thought about an age old question:  Is giving birth more painful than getting kicked in the nuts? Women  always maintain that giving birth is way more painful than a guy  getting kicked in the nuts.

  Well, after another beer, and some heavy  deductive thinking, I have come up with the answer to that question.  Getting kicked in the nuts is more painful than having a baby; and  here is the reason for my conclusion. A year or so after giving birth,  a woman will often say, "It might be nice to have another child." On  the other hand, you never hear a guy say, "You know, I think I would  like another kick in the  nuts."

 I rest my case. Time for another  beer.

Good Old Video Games...

I recently started playing Candy Crush and Farmville on FB. This took me back to the starting of video games.


One of the first big hits was Pacman. I was a maha addict of this game.


Bricks had a paddle and a ball. Lot like ping pong.


Space was one of the first of the games to have levels.


Snake: It eats and it grows. This is still present on mobile phones.

Prince of Persia
Prince of Persia: This was on of the first to get good graphics. Had the 3D feel. It had hidden lives and wins. I remember those days the PoP cheat sheet was quite famous. No Google then so had to be passed on by hand.
