Vine bacul va ia dracul

M-a amuzat teribil expresia asta, intalnita pe forum-ul Level, insa si mai mult m-a amuzat faptul ca unii chiar cred asta si au inceput sa ia masuri:

Da, in loc sa invatam, mai bine ne rugam…

Avand in vedere ca invatamantul religios  (adica indoctrinarea BORatilor, nu va ganditi la istoria religiilor) in scoli a fost incurajat de stat dupa 90′, cum oare doamne-doamne nu a avut grija sa lumineze mintile generatiilor care au picat BAC-ul anii trecuti? Ceva imi spune ca majoritatea celor care nu au putut lua o amarata de nota de trecere sunt crestini devotati, care isi fac cruci pe banda rulanta in timp ce poarte variante aurite la gat, au 10 la religie si respecta sarbatorile, chiar daca, probabil din cauza a prea mult post, se dedeau la excese bahice si/sau etnobotanice.

Din pacate exista o legatura stransa intre nivelul de educatie al persoanelor si gradul de religiozitate, toate studiile aratand o corelatie invers proportionala. Conducatorii ii vor pe romani prosti, popalaii ii vor prosti, orice smecheras marunt ii vrea pe romani prosti. Prostimea e usor de condus, prostimea voteaza de fiecare data pentru 1 litru de ulei sau un kg de zahar, prostimea nu pune intrebari si plateste, prostimea se roaga si asteapta o viata mai buna „dincolo” decat sa si-o ceara aici!

Haideti sa iesim din tiparul „Crede si nu cerceta, ramai prost si da-mi leafa ta!”



Starcraft 2 2013 season 4 has begun

The old season is over, and season 4 2013 has started! I think you have noticed by now that Blizzard is alligning the season duration with the WCS, so we now have somewhat shorter seasons.

New changes brought by season 4:

New map pool

and a shitty commercial move to force noobs to buy HOTS by removing GM league in WOL and take away their chance of getting that desired shinny portrait outline. Pfff, good thing i got it last season, but i don’t see how it is fair to take away the joy from others wanting to do so. This is a subtle martketing move, not in the sense that WOL players will all rush out and get HOTS in order to get the GM achievment, as they are aware of how hard it will be to get in, but while the GM league was there, HOTS owners would have come over to still play the game in order to get it and so the ladder was more populated. As it will be from now on most likely only the WOL owners will remain, and finding a game would take ages there, so they will be forced to buy HOTS if they want to have a pleasant gaming experience…

Anyway, $ still rules the world, nothing that can be done about that…

My season 3 global 1v1 Starcraft 2 career finish for my EU and NA accounts, no 20 and 23 world random player in WOL and 77 and 90 world random player in HOTS:

So yeah, i can fucking rule even without the shinny GM badge that made me look as a saint 😛

Barcraft in Romania

For those of you wondering what is „barcraft”, i think the urban dictionary describes it best:

Originally spawned from a post in the reddit sub-community r/starcraft (user o_Oskar) as well as a post on TeamLiquid by primadog. Barcraft is the term for the new movement of showing professional Starcraft 2 matches in bars. This phenomenon popped up in the spring of 2011 in the US, with the start of the NASL. The first barcraft event was held at Chao Bistro in Seattle. There have subsequently been barcraft events in most major US cities as well as abroad in countries such as Canada and the UK. The Starcraft 2 events that are covered are typically MLG, GSL, NASL, or IPL. With its new found popularity bar owners have also started showing other games such as Marvel vs. Capcom, League of Legends, Heros of Newerth and Dota 2.

In Romania there have been few barcrafts, but as of late, the movement is growing. To keep track of the following events, you can see these pages:

Here are some photos from the EU WCS Finals barcraft held in Cluj, at Old Sheperd’s Pub, that Generalul and his beloved fiancee attended 😛

What can be more fun that watching amazing Starcraft 2 action, drinking a beer or a negus in my case (the classic romanian „vin fiert”) and talking with other players/fans of this game?
