The internet is a series of tubes...

I just needed to get this out there:

You're stupid!

Americans are stupid.

I know, some of you are shocked.

It's because you, too, are a stupid American. Don't worry, I'm guilty as well. Just not as guilty as you... you stupid American.

Today, I saw a bottle of hand sanitizer that said "12 oz. bonus!" -- That's right, 12 ounces of free hand sanitizer!

A normal American would snatch that up and say "wow, I'm saving money!"

Don't get me wrong, if you can get 12 extra ounces for free, I say go for it. That's not the point though.

The first thing that jumped into my head was "wow, how much am I over paying for hand sanitizer that they can suddenly offer me a full 12 extra ounces for 'free'?!"

You're only kidding yourself if you think that Johnson and Johnson is giving you extra sanitizer out of the kindness of their hearts. What I want to know is how much MORE sanitizer we could milk them for if we'd just smarten up and demand it!


Then, if you're really smart, do the same for gas...

Stupid Americans...

Razer Barracuda AC-1 & HP-1

So, I had a LAN party over the weekend and I decided to finally snag a pair of HP-1 Gaming Headphones to accompany my AC-1 Sound Card. I was very impressed by the audio quality, but I was a little disappointed by the microphone. That is until I figured out how to tweak it.

The software that comes with the AC-1 is pretty cool, but it's not perfect. At least, on my machine, I had to open the Windows mixer from the Control Panel in order to boost the microphone. Once I boosted it, it worked fine. I'm very pleased by the headphones so far... I need to test them out a bit more, but I'd recommend them to anyone using an AC-1. They go hand in hand.
