Never before has a nerdier line been uttered at 8am. My neckbeard twitched with giddy amusement as he lifted his shirt this morning to show a quasi-permanent lateral line across his stomach. Battle scars from the night before, hunched behind the glow of the Asus as enemy mana regens and ultimates danced across our monitors. I’m speaking, of course, of Heroes of the Storm. And if you haven’t yet played it, I highly encourage you to go out and download the free game. I also encourage you to avoid partying up with us because we’re absolute dogshit. Laning, cooperative communicating, and hero-specific focused attacking are some of the things we can’t do. Simply put, we’re a motley crew of divas, prima donnas, and hotshots. This theme will come up time and time again as this blog moves forward. We’ll revisit the realm of the neckbeard (video games and hot pockets) in time, most likely culminating in an expose of how tres cuatro tres (better known in the gaming world as 343 Industries) has royaly fucked Halo fanboy/girls. But that will come in time.

It’s a different world today than the early seventies. Mostly because forty years has passed.
And finally, after feeling a lazy sack yesterday morning, I balled up what little energy I had and went to the pharmacy so do some shopping. Came across the following and loved the utility and smell of the product – the only wrinkle was the price.
The problem is you need to keep the lid on the thing at all times or it loses its moisture too quickly. I haven’t figured out a way to keep the lid on the can AND my balls in the can at the same time.
