So apparently my mum talk to this random dude at
NTL Virgin Media and we got a new modem... yea and we also managed to get a huge amount knocked off the monthly cost, just by installing the new modem... weird. But I'm not complaining, since we still get to surf at the same speed have no download limits. So awesome.
Here's the new modem. It looks somewhat better, more stylish I think.
Since I'm a lazy bugger, I can't be asked to move the old one. Since, I'm sure most of you can relate, the wires are all tangled up. And I mean totally tangled up. Don't believe me? Here's a quick snapshot with the webcam:
And this is only the bit I can take a shot of. Most of the wires are hidden behind the CPU, along with the sockets and stuff. It's bad.
So, now I have two modems atop my CPU:
I thought so too. You think the old one (at the back) would have forced the new one off the top of the CPU "accidentally" by now. Since it has taken it's job. And you know, it's also bigger and meaner looking. It's also probably trained in several specialised
hand-to-hand wire-to-wire combat.
Or maybe it's just enjoying it's retirement.
Nevertheless, it's there. Along with the new.
<<WARNING! THE FOLLOWING MAY NOT BE SUITABLE FOR THE FAINT OF HEART!>>
I was randomly surfing blogs not long ago. And I came across something interesting (on GaijinSmash, to be exact). This is what he initially said:
And every time I see one that I think is the worst thing in the world ever, much like 2girls1cup*
And the asterisked place said:
*Do NOT Google that. Seriously. I'm not joking, that's my actual, heartfelt warning - don't do it.**
**If you don't listen to me, at least watch some of the reaction vids on Youtube first to get an idea of what horrors you will be inflicting upon yourself.
I was initially going to just avoid his advice and just Google it. But then I felt some warning light go off at the back of my head, like some tiny brain cell just realised something important and started screaming: 'DUDE! WATCH THE VIDEOS FIRST OR YOU WILL DIE A HORRIBLE DEATH!' Or something like that. I'm sure the thing from the grudge was also there.
Anyway, I eventually heeded his advice and looked up on YT. And I'm kind of glad I did now, since judging by the reactions I can see that if I watched it myself I would have screamed: 'OH DEAR GOD! AAAAHHHHHH!!!' continued to run around in a mad circle and shout at the top of my lungs until my head exploded.
Here are some of the videos one dude put up (he has like 10 videos of different people watching):
The dude's other videos are here: VIDS if you want to watch some more reactions.
Anyway, back to me. I was really curious now and although slightly put off by the dude in the 2nd video when he said: 'Is that sh*t?' I figured as a blog-writer, having not seen the video I can't really blogged about it.
So I prepared myself as much as possible, at this point I could have taken on a Nuclear Winter, several Polar Bears and Lions, a Griffon and a few Dragons and still live to tell the tale. Nothing could stop me.
BUT NOTHING COULD PREPARE ME FOR WHAT I SAW.
I didn't get far and just closed my browser. I sat there for a while, unmoving. That has scared me for life. My eyes feel like they've been burnt by some sort of devil water.
I URGE YOU NOT TO WATCH THIS VIDEO. EVEN IF YOU'RE LIFE DEPENDS ON IT. DO NOT MAKE THE SAME MISTAKE I DID.
DO NOT WATCH IT.
Just in-case you do though, here's the link: 2girls1cup
Apparently, a whole internet craze was set off by those videos. This happened a year ago. Hey, better late than never I suppose. I probably found out about this before, but my mind has mentally blocked it from me to avoid the physical harm I would do to my own body.
DON'T WATCH IT.
That's all the advice I can give. I am not liable for any sort of mental illness or brain-turning-into-mush condition that you may get by not following my advice and watching the video.
EDIT#1: Ok, since many of you probably won't heed my advice. And I want to reduce the amount of times I'm going to get sued (hopefully it'll stay at 2), so I've included a picture on how bad it is:
If that ain' t gonna convince ya, I dunno what is.
