I was playing a tournament in NHL 2011 as the Philadelphia Flyers. I was winning 3-0 halfway through the first period of the semi-finals, when Simon Gagne suffered a concussion and had to leave the game. I promptly reset the game. I didn't want Gagne missing the finals and the chance to celebrate the tournament championship with his fellow teammates on the ice. He worked too hard to miss that opportunity.
After i learned to read, my mom taught me how to speed read. I spent years reading and re-reading the Harry Potter series, playing all the games, watching all the movies, and even reading them backwards from 7 to 1. The highlight of my life came last summer; I successfully read along with the first book while watching the movie.
I ran out of compressed air to clean my keyboard and was desperate to play Warcraft 3. Instead of going to the store, I used my asthma inhaler.
Last Thanksgiving, my dad and I got into an argument over which shoulder Sephiroth's wing is on. My aunt had to tell us "not at the table."
Whenever someone types a string of 1's and 0's as a joke, like they're speaking in binary, I copy and paste it into a translator program I wrote to show me what it spells out in ascii (and EBCDIC just to make sure). 99% of the time I'm disappointed that there's no secret message for me, but I do it anyway.
When I was 8 years old, my mom took me to Target to buy a Nintendo 64. She said I could get only one game. I picked Superman 64. I'm not too proud of myself.
