Macho Man Randy Savage Died Yesterday

It is a sad time for wrestling fans, old and new, as one of the legends, Macho Man Randy Savage, has died yesterday as a result of a car accident in Tampa, Florida. Lanny Poffo, his brother, spoke with TMZ and told them that Randy had a heart attack while driving at about 9:25 this morning, thus losing control of the vehicle. It is unfortunate that he had just celebrated his one-year anniversary with his new wife Lynn, he was also fifty-eight. In 1985, in the WWF, Macho Man began his wrestling career and was made popular with his catchphrase “Ooooooh Yeaaaahhhh.” He was eventually the spokesperson for Slim Jim and then started being shown in their commercials. It is being said by the Florida Highway Patrol that Savage was driving in a 2009 Jeep Wrangler, drove across a concrete median, through the oncoming traffic, and then ended by colliding head-on with a tree. He was transported to the Largo hospital and they pronounced him dead because of the injuries he had. Lynn, Savage’s wife was also in the jeep during the crash, but she has survived with “minor injuries.” Apparently she was taken to a different hospital in the area to be treated. Officials are saying that the couple were wearing seatbelts at the time and also that alcohol was not a factor in this accident.

Fifteen Aborted Apocalypses

Well today is apparently the end of the world, but how many false apocalypses have we supposed to have died from? has an article explaining fifteen of these pathetic aborted apocalypses.

1000 A.D. – This was of course one of the original false apocalypses. Change is something people do not like and since this was the first time the year was a four digit number. The Apocrypha predicted that the year 1000 would be the year that Christ would return to earth and the world would be destroyed. This lead many people to go crazy, steal, and flee to safer grounds. When it was deemed safe to go home they did.
1843-1844 – Known as “The Great Disappointment,” a Baptist preacher by the name of William Miller, along with his strong following, was saying Christ was going to return to Earth and the fires of hell would consume us. It seems like we are making a pattern of stupid people saying Christ would return and kill us all.
1873 - ? – Jehovah’s Witnesses are really annoying, especially when they knock on our doors and try to convert us. Would you believe me if I told you they have predicted many times since 1873 that there would be a culmination of our planetary existence?
1898 – The War of the Worlds was supposed to happen in 1898 because it was mentioned in the novel by H.G. Wells. It was then narrated on the radio in 1938 by Orson Welles. It was also turned into a movie in 2005, in which Tom Cruise made the adaptation.
1910 – Halley’s Comet was first observed centuries before Christ, but the comet has come back many times and it claimed to be the “galaxy’s number on bully.” What makes 1910 so specific with this comet, is the fact that it passed so close that an astronomer issued warnings to the public. Some warnings talked about doom to the whole planet, in which scared people.
1919 – An American meteorologist, named Albert Porta, had announced that six planets would “cause a magnetic current that would pierce the sun, cause great explosions of flaming gas and eventually engulf the earth.”
1951 – An alien spacecraft landed on the President’s Park in Washington DC, in the summer of 1951. A human, who looked much like the actor Michael Rennie, named Klaatu came to warn us Earth-dwellers tat we better kept to ourselves. We never listened to him, so he shut down the electric power on our planet. We then agreed to his warnings.
1982 – Pat Robertson claimed that the world would end sometime during this year and he made this claim in 1976. Unfortunately for him he lived to run for president six years after 1982. I wouldn’t vote for a man who thought the world was going to come to an end!
1988 – Edgar Whisenant had eighty-eight reasons why the Rapture would happen in ’88. He even wrote a book on it, but too bad every reason he wrote was wrong. These wrongful theories continued, in is several books related to the Rapture. The original book sold almost five million copies.
1997 – When pictures of Comet Halle-Bopp circled in ’97 it proved that there was something behind it. Police discovered bodies of thirty-nine members of Heaven’s Gate based in San Diego, on March 26th, 1997. The victims were from a mass suicide because they thought the UFO was going to take them.
1999 – Nostradamus, or “Captain Vague” as MaxPC calls him, was a bit of a fortune teller and as all human beings, he wasn’t always correct. He predicted that a “King of Terror” would mess up in 1999.
December 31, 1999 – Y2K was something that everyone will remember. As the new millennium is coming, will our computer be able to handle it? There was talk of power failures worldwide, rampade laptops, and airplanes dropping from the sky. It was a day when everyone went out and bought Norton, which is now a crap anti-virus, and installed it the night before in case of massive malware.
June 6, 2006 – 666, the number of the beast, was also a day where all the Christians and people who want to raise attention and startle people made a big deal out of the satanic number. It’s humorous to note that the next day, a big meteorite fell and smashed into Norway.
December 21, 2012 – Mayans have predicted that since their “long count” calendar ends on this day that the world is going to come to an end. I just think it will be like the 1997 UFO incident and there will just be a large scale mass suicide.
2030 – 2050 – Apparently during this time period The Singularity will happen, when technology surpasses humans. It seems like this last apocalypse idea is the only one that sounds reasonable!

Top Ten Disturbing Parts In Video Games has a list of what they think is the top ten most disturbing parts from video games. Let’s just get to that list so I can go to bed!

10. Pamela’s Father – Okay, so apparently by disturbing they actually do mean disturbing. If you don’t care to watch, the scene of Pamela and her father rejoicing with a hug may be looked as something way more disgusting. This is only because Nintendo 64 games were not very well developed. Games always have those issues, Majora’s Mask is just one of them.

9. Department Store Abberations – In this eerie clip it takes you into the game Condemned as wherever you go in this room these mannequins appear closer and closer. It does get quite scary, I feel creeped out just watching it.

8. Psycho Mantis – In this video, it shows you the most weirdest boss battle in Metal Gear Sold 1. You fight Psycho Mantis and it is very disturbing because he says something which comes from your memory card like, “You like thrills… you like Castlevania, don’t you?” You also have to switch the controller ports to beat him correctly. It does make for a very trippy experience.

7. Break That Puppy’s Neck – In this audiotape in the gameplay of BioShock, Doctor Suchong makes one of his test subjects break a puppy’s neck.

6. Caught In The Act – In this intro sequence of Max Payne as you search your house, it has been broken into and you look around. As you go upstairs, you here Michelle being killed. You cannot help them no matter what you try and your kids are dead as well.

5. No Russian – In this level of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2, you are undercover finding out intel on the Russians. You are in an elevator with a bunch of Russians and the leader says, “Remember, no Russian.” The elevator doors open and you are at airport security when you then go on a rampage and kill everyone.

4. The Revelation of Lisa Trevor – This video is ten minutes long, I have not played it. You can see what’s so disturbing about it yourselves. It is Resident Evil so it is bound to be something. It is apparently Lisa Trevor, the first victim of the Type B virus.

3. Tranquility Lane – This is one of the weird parts in Fallout 3. You aren’t meant to do anything messed up in this part of the game but you are able to. It is testing you are under and if you do it right it may help with the plot line. You are able to make a child cry and to hurt him. You can tell him that his parents are getting a divorce and you can also kill them. You can do many menacing things here.

2. The Effects of Insanity – This game seems weird, you have to go throw many different booby traps. This game probably has more plot to it but I have not played it.

Pyramid Head Rapes The Mannequins – Well, I believe the title says it all… Enjoy!

Well, goodnight everyone. I am to lazy to list what is below. I am extremely tired and just want to get this posted for you all!
