Well, at least you weren't masturbating.



...you weren't, right?
No, not on that occasion :D

I was too young and innocent for all that filth.

That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.

Monty on the Run,

Got it for xmas and spent a whole week of the xmas holiday only being able to go into about 3 screens and bashing my head on the table in frustration as i didn't know you had to keep jumping on that stupid little cloud thing to get up to the higher screens.

felt a right censored when my mate finally told me what to do.

Was playing Metal Gear Solid on the playstation with a friend. Instead of pointing out that I only had one 'ration' left, he said I only had one 'portion' left.
What a t*t.

I'm a bad loser and an even worse winner. So rubbing my grilfriends nose in it every time I beat her at Worms wasn't a good idea, especially considering that she got good...real good. Suffice to say we don't play 'That Game' any more.

I thought I was pretty good at Tekken 5. Note the emphasis on the word thought. So - I was in Japan, in Akihabara, and I dragged the wife into one of the Sega arcades. Practically kicking and screaming. Anyway - I waited what? 30 minutes? Maybe more to play this Tekken 5 machine. There was a crowd of people - i don't know - maybe 15 people. I was the only Gaijin. (Foreigner.) Everyone was watching me before I played. It finally comes to my turn, and I got my arse kicked all over town in the first round. The machine must have been set to psycho hard or something. It wasn't pretty. The locals? They didn't laugh, but they had the same expression one might expect from a bunch of church goers first thing on a Sunday morning, should I have decided to walk up to the alter, drop my pants and defecate . It was sort of a cross between bewilderment, anger, disappointment and that typical Japanese look of "ooh look foreigner :D I hope i don't have to speak English... :shock: "

I wasn't even allowed to put more money in.

It was horrible. It was one of those moments you re-live late at night lying awake in the dark, and then find yourself talking out loud. Things like "...I needed a pad!" etc...

One time I can think of from the top of my head was at a family get together, I bought round my brand new Dreamcast and set up Soul Calibur. My slightly older female cousin said "Ooh is that one of those new Dreamcasts?" and promptly sat down to fight me.

Then she perfected me.

One situation where I embarresed someone was in HMV Milton Keynes on the N64 display unit. It was running ISS 64 and this lad challenged me. I hadn't even played hardly any football games ever and certainly never any ISS games let alone the 64 version. Anyway I beat him 4-0 including scoring the fourth with a pitch length run with the keeper. He thought I was an ISS God... ...tee hee
