More Stupid Things Nearly Every Driver Does…

This post is to coincide with my old post about obvious things 80% of drivers tend to fail to do. This time around, however, I think it applies more closely to 90% of drivers. That’s right, nearly every single driver I see is guilty of this.

The first issue- why in the heck do people wait until the last second to move into an off ramp lane or something similar?

To further explain, imagine you are on a highway with multiple lanes. Now imagine your highway to have exits every few miles. Now imagine those exits having their own lanes to exit off of. Yes, most exits you see in real life will eventually have a lane open at least a somewhat short distance right before the exit, and in some cases, at least half a mile.

My gripe is, WHY DO PEOPLE IGNORE THESE LANES!!!!??? I’m being serious. At least 8 out of 10 drivers will ignore this lane when it opens up and stay in the lane next to it. But they slow down a good 20 mph, thus backing up all the traffic in that lane, and/or forcing others to quickly jump into the next lane to the left, thus most likely forcing people already in that lane to hit their brakes, and before long, at a busy time, BAM! Bumper to bumper traffic.

But anyway, these enlightened drivers will suddenly veer off into the exit ramp just as the exit lane ends, or within the last 20-30 feet of a 500 foot lane. Or my favorite one is the people who slowly move over, driving in both lanes for the majority of the time.

I can’t understand why so many people do this. It’s just so baffling to me. When the lane opens up, quit effing around and move over. It’s not difficult, I swear it’s not! Let us people trying to get places do so…for the love of God!! I can’t tell you how many collisions I’ve avoided from being behind someone who stays in the regular lane while I move into the exit lane. I just always assume the idiot in front is eventually going to move over, so instead of moving further up the exit lane, I fall way back, because the guy in the regular lane is surely going to move over at the last second. This almost always happens. If I had continued on at regular speed, these people probably wouldn’t even look and just move right into me, or at least cut me or someone else off.

My second gripe that 90% of drivers are guilty of…waiting until the last second to move out of a lane closed for road work of something of the sorts. You know what I’m talking about, right? When you sit in traffic for 40 minutes because they close one lane on a 4 lane highway?

Depending on the time of day, this will unavoidably cause obscene amounts of traffic. But if people weren’t so god damn stupid, it  wouldn’t build up as quickly, or in slower times, traffic would be avoided all together.

So what am I talking about that could be avoided? THE FACT THAT MOST OF THE TIME THERE ARE SIGNS ALERTING YOU THAT A LANE WILL BE CLOSED!!!!!

Most construction areas or whatever will put up signs that say something along the lines of “Left Lane Closed In Two Miles.” Some will then give a 1 mile warning and half a mile warning.

Now common sense would tell most people to get out of the left lane as soon as you see the sign. 2 miles is plenty of time to move over to the right without having to cut someone off too badly, if at all.

But no…the few intelligent people that do move over is like the greatest gift to all the other idiots out there. The left lane clears up, so tons of people go into the left lane and slam on the gas, turning the highway into a race track, because they just have to get those 3 cars ahead! Then just when they are about to hit the cones closing off the lane, they quickly cut some smarter person off in the right lane, thus causing that entire lane to quickly come to a complete stop. Now once this lane is stopped, you would think people would just line up, knowing that the left lane is closed.

Nope…

All those bad ass morons just keep piling into the left lane, stopping at the cones and pushing their way into the right lane. Dozens of cars do this, and each one just backs up traffic more and more. And chances are these idiots were sitting in traffic before hand. Your own dumb, selfish actions are what are causing the traffic in the first place…you morons!!! And naturally, people in the lane the idiots are forcing their way into are now moving into the other right most lanes, causing traffic in those lanes as well. And what does that make? A parking lot, folks!

So yeah. That’s all I have to say right now.

The point I’m trying to make is if people paid attention, stopped being selfish idiots (as if) and utilized the tools given to them, traffic would be less of an issue and us people who drive a lot could get back a few hours of our lives each week.

Shadow of the Colossus Is Colossal Crap

I just played the Ico/Shadow of the Colossus pack for PS3. And I really don’t understand why either of these games are “critically acclaimed”, even for back when they first came out.

icoIco was decent. I don’t love puzzle games, though, but it’s still a good enough game that it kept me entertained enough to finish it without hating it for the most part.

Shadow of the Colossus, on the other hand, lost me in an hour.

Shadow-of-the-Colossus-PS3

I don’t really like quitting games without finishing them, but I have no drive to do so with this one. I was put off with it right away. Thanks to long, slow moving, boring cut scenes, and abysmal control and camera, I hated the game before I even got to the first boss. 3 bosses later and I had enough completely.

Walking around a boring world with those awful controls was bad enough, but to fight the bosses is another test of patience entirely. Seriously, what is fun about climbing up the hair of a giant monster? This would be okay, but all you do is wait while the dumb thing tries to throw you off. Attack when it finally stops, which the windows are usually pretty short to do so, often times having your charged up attack interrupted by the swinging behemoths. So yeah, none of that sounds remotely fun…and it’s not. I don’t want to play games that make you wait while things endlessly shake. It’s crap and it’s boring and I don’t think a game has ever lost me so quickly. After the third boss, the thought of having to kill 13 more (I think) was unbearable, so I’m going to save myself the frustration.

If you like this game, (which apparently most of the world does) I envy you, but I just can’t get into it. This should change the name to “Shaking Colossal Monsters! Hang On!”

The fact that this game has been remastered twice is just baffling to me.

My Top 10 N64 Games

Back with another top 10 list…this time another Nintendo console I wasn’t all that fond of. But just like the NES, this one is home to some of the best games ever made. I’ve only got 17 games left for the console, having given away many of them (like a fool). Of those, I’ve played 14 of them, and these are my 10 favorite…

#10 Mario Tennis

mario tennis

 

 

 

 

 

Camelot Software Planning/ Nintendo, 2000

This one hasn’t aged well at all, but it still can be picked up to have some fun. I used to have a lot of fun with the family playing this game.

#9 Donkey Kong 64

dk64

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rare Ltd./ Nintendo, 1999

I hated this game at first. I couldn’t understand why Dixie and Kiddy weren’t in it, and I thought the gameplay was terrible. After a while, it grew on me and I realized it’s a pretty solid game, though still nothing spectacular.

#8 Star Fox 64

Star_Fox_64_cover

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nintendo, 1997

This is a fun game, but probably one of my least favorite in the series. I used to have a lot of fun in the awesome multiplayer mode though.

#7 Mario Kart 64

mario-kart-64-usa-nintendo-64_1513105811

Nintendo, 1997

I played the crap out of this game and loved every second of it. It was such a step up from the first game, that it was hard to stop playing. It is pretty crappy nowadays though, but still fun overall.

#6 Super Mario 64

super_mario_64_box_cover

Nintendo, 1996

I couldn’t wait to play this game. It was the first full 3D game many of us played and it amazed the poop out of us…except I still found myself rather disappointed with it, since Super Mario World is so much better.

#5 Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards

kirby 64

HAL Labs/ Nintendo, 2000

This game blew me away. It still is one of my favorite Kirby games of all time. The ability to combine powers made the gameplay so much more fun.

#4 The Legend Of Zelda: Majora’s Mask

majoras-mask

Nintendo, 2000

This is one of my least favorite Zelda games, but it is still incredible, giving you a completely different experience than ever before. It had a lot of awesome ideas, and a lot of not so awesome ones. It actually took me three attempts to truly get into the game.

#3 Super Smash Bros

Super_Smash_Bros._-_North_American_Boxart

HAL Labs/ Nintendo, 1999

This game was a dream come true. The hilarious commercial seemed unreal when it first came out, but then to actually have the game and play it, and realize it is the most fun you’ve ever had…just wow.

 

#2 Paper Mario

paper mario

Intelligent Systems/ Nintendo, 2001

Again, this had another funny commercial, and again, you were completely blown away by the amazing game that it is. When you stop to think about it, it is such a random, wacky idea, but it is one of the best RPG’s ever made.

#1 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

ocarina_of_time_box_art

Nintendo, 1998

Were you really expecting anything else? I could play this game every day. It is just perfect. This is the game that made me love 3D gaming. The temples, the time travel, the combat, the bosses, the whole darn adventure is just magical.

And there you have it. That’s almost all of the games I own for the system (that I have played anyway) in my least favorite to favorite. Though I didn’t like the system overall, these games, especially the top 5, are complete masterpieces.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Top 10 Favorite Game Reveals From e3 2018

Another e3 has just about wrapped up and pretty much everybody revealed some incredible titles, so I am going to share the 10 I am most excited about! Note that I am only listing games that were revealed for the first time, or I had no idea were in the works.

#1 Jedi: Fallen Order

This didn’t even really get an actual reveal but was talked about vaguely during EA’s conference. Nonetheless, I am most excited for it because it sounds sort of like Force Unleashed, except you play as a Jedi instead of a Sith apprentice.

 

 

 

Games That Most People Love, But I Don’t

I thought it would be interesting to see just how many games I don’t like that most of the world quite adore. This is nothing fancy, just a running list I was inspired to write by the very rare times I’ve bought games simply because everyone was raving about them. Of these times I’ve done so, I wound up not really seeing what all the fuss was about half the time. So let’s take a look and see how much I disagree with the world…

 

Going to start out with an old classic…

  • Tetris: It’s a fun game overall but it gets pretty boring really fast. Hardly anything amazing outside of 1985.
  • Every basic racing and sports game. Series like Need for Speed, FIFA, Madden, Gran Turismo, F-Zero. They are all fun for a bit, but get old fast, which I guess is why they release  some every year.

 

  • Halo Series. I remember playing the first one when it came out and thinking it was the worst fps I ever played. I’ve only played the first 3 and was equally unimpressed with them all.

 

  • Monster Hunter 4 Ultimate: I really tried to like this game, but it got boring real fast. But admittedly, it isn’t really my cup of tea. It’s the only game I’ve played in the series and the only one I intend to.

 

  • Shantae: Risky’s Revenge: This is one of the games I bought simply from constantly reading how everyone found it to be absolutely incredible. Yeah, well..it’s not. It’s just an okay platformer. It is the only one in the series I have played and I’ve no interest to go beyond that.

 

  • Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat/SoulCalibur Series: These are games I really tried to like, but I just don’t like fighting games, so I guess that’s on me.

 

  • Speaking of fighting games…Marvel Vs. Capcom 2: I thought this was the coolest game ever when I first played it, but it got old real fast. Again, I don’t like fighting games, but this one did it a tad better than most, but still…meh.

 

  • Animal Crossing Series: I’ve only tried two games and got unbelievably bored within a few hours. I guess I hate sim games, like the Sims. That crap is boring. Why would I want to live a basic life in a game? I have enough with my own real life.

 

  • Assassin’s Creed Series: I’ve played everyone up to 3, and only liked Brotherhood and Revelations. The rest are horribly boring and stupid and poorly executed in my opinion. And the two I do like, it’s not a strong like, just like an “okay, that was good enough” kind of deal. Plus the ending credits in each game are enough to make you want to kill yourself.

 

  • Call of Duty Series: This is a weird one. I actually enjoy all the games very much. But I play the campaigns only, whereas virtually everyone but me and two others I know of play for the online play, which to me is when the series started to decline heavily. The games under the “2” title are some of my favorite fps’ ever made, cuz that was before all that online hooplah and they actually put real effort into the games.

 

  • Elite Beat Agents (DS): While this isn’t like a huge game to most people, everyone who has played it claims it’s so amazing. I don’t know, I got like 3-5 missions in and found it to be just so very boring.

 

  • Grand Theft Auto Series: The series is good for mindless slaughtering of innocent people for a half hour, but the actual games, like the campaign and all the meat, is just rather long and boring.

 

  • Star Fox Series: I actually like all of these games but not to the extreme level that most people do. And I find Star Fox 64, probably the most popular one, to be okay at best and one of the worst in the series.

 

  • The World Ends With You (DS): The only reason I bought this game was because I heard some of the characters were going to appear in Kingdom Hearts 3D. And with this game being called the best game on DS by pretty much everyone, I thought “what could go wrong?” Well, the idea is cool, but I thought the gameplay was rather terrible and the game seemed to never end.

 

  • Final Fantasy Series: I do like most of the games, and some I don’t like I find okay. Others I despise. But most of them are just miserable to get through regardless of whether I like them or not, often being littered with unbelievably annoying factors and dumb development decisions. The series as a whole is one of the most overrated things I’ve ever heard of. 7 is not nearly as good as people make it out to be either, though I do enjoy it.

 

  • Super Mario Bros (NES): People always talk about this to be one of the greatest games of all time. Sure in the sense that it is responsible for kickstarting everything we play today and all that, but that is entirely different from how the game plays. Yes, when it first came out, it was jaw dropping. But today, it’s crap. I like the game, but it’s still crap and definitely one of the worst in the Mario series.

 

  • Going along with that is Super Mario 64: Again, this game is more famous for being revolutionary. I remember being blown away by the 3D graphics and seeing Mario’s world in all new dimensions, but then I was disappointed by the gameplay and the game itself and I found myself missing 2D suddenly. Again, I like this game, but it’s nothing spectacular.

 

  • Donkey Kong 64: Like SM64, this just made me wish they made another 2D instead. By the time this came out, the 3D wasn’t exciting anymore, so it didn’t even have that going for it. It’s a good enough game however.

 

  • BioShock: I don’t know about this one. I played it for like 3 hours and then stopped. I loved the commercials when the game came out and was excited to play it, but I just found it to be a boring mess. I have no interest to play the others either.

 

  • Borderlands Series: I’ve only played the first two, and actually I had no interest in buying them, but my two brothers wanted me to play it, claiming the second one is one of the best games ever, and so they bought them for me, and I wished they just saved their money. The first one is just barely playable, and the second is just barely okay. They are more annoying and monotonous than fun, and though the games have great humor, I am to miserable playing them to actually be amused.

 

  • Tomb Raider Series: I haven’t played the rebooted ones, but the original games are just okay at best. Kind of boring, but it’s not a horrible struggle to beat them, and they do get better as they go on, so that’s something.

 

  • Going along with that is the Uncharted Series: This is difficult. I haven’t played the PS4 entries, and I loved 2, but 1 and 3, and thus the series as a whole is rather underwhelming, especially since it’s considered one of Sony’s flagship franchises. And the fact that it is a shameless ripoff of Tomb Raider doesn’t help it either, but it’s done way better than those games, so I guess it balances out.

 

  • Overlord Series: I get a lot of flak for despising this series. I’ve played the first two and find them to be awful. The gameplay is bad as well as the controls. It’s just a mess and no fun at all.

 

  • Tom Clancy’s Rainbow Six Series: Out of all the games I’ve played in this series, only Vegas 2 did I truly enjoy. The others are just unbalanced, horrible messes that depend too much on AI and the gamer understanding what the heck is going on. Maybe they are just too complicated for someone like myself, who does not have the patience to learn anything like this.

 

  • Crash Bandicoot Series: I really loved these games when they first came out, but now they are just okay. Definitely not worth getting the recent remaster of the trilogy.

 

  • Xenogears: This game is okay at times, but I really hated it most of the time. Everything is so slow moving, way too much boring talking for half hour+ times, the story is told in an odd way with a lot of build up and a disappointing ending. The end boss is ridiculous and requires far too much grinding and money to be able to beat him well enough, and by that time, you come to the conclusion it really isn’t worth it because you realized the game stopped being fun 10 hours into it.

 

  • Devil May Cry 1-3: These games aren’t bad at all, but don’t live up to the hype they get. They are good, but nothing at all spectacular, though I suppose they might have been when they first came out.

 

  • Jak and Daxter Series: Boy, I really am hating on Naughty Dog. I enjoy all three games, but none of them are truly wonderful. The first is my favorite, but the direction they went after that just wasn’t all that much fun.

 

  • LittleBigPlanet Series: I thought the first game was incredible when I first played it, but then I realized that it doesn’t cater all that well to single player. You need to play online or local multiplayer to really get the full experience and that is just something I have no interest in doing. They are undoubtedly creative games, but aren’t super fun or anything.

 

  • Shadow of the Colossus: Everything about this game is awful. I couldn’t even stomach the thought of finishing it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Solo Is Fantastic!!! (No Spoilers)

As the title says, it is amazing, though if you have not seen the Clone Wars and Rebels shows, there are going to be some very confusing moments and you’ll miss some cool shout outs and nods to the shows.

But the movie gives you almost everything one would want to see in a movie about Han Solo and it is an intense, wild ride. Probably my third favorite Star Wars movie.

Dragon Ball Sagas Ranked

With the conclusion of Dragon Ball Super this week, I’m feeling all sad, so I decided to rank all the sagas from all of the series, including GT. Dragon Ball has been one of my favorite things in life since the mid 90’s, so it is exciting to write this out and actual figure out my favorite stories and what not.

Note that I love the show primarily for the action, the flashy fights and power ups, and humor. I will not be ranking them by story, for in this show, it’s not all that important, and some are far more fleshed out than others, so it’s hard to compare long stories against short ones.

I will be grouping some of the sagas together to keep the list shorter and make it a bit easier. They will be listed from worst to best.

#20

Emperor Pilaf Saga (Dragon Ball)

pilaf saga

The saga that started it all is understandably the worst. It introduces many of the main characters and is a very typical anime, with tons of little boy wiener and pervy jokes, rather than the intense action that the series is known for. Goku pretty much beats everything in one hit. Not that great, but pretty short.

#19

Black Star Dragon Ball Saga (Dragon Ball GT)

Blackstar_Dragonball_Shenron

 

This one seems to take influence from the Pilaf saga. Both focus on going around on different adventures each episode, looking for dragon balls. It’s got better action, but barely. And there’s Pan. It probably wouldn’t be so bad if she wasn’t involved. This and the Pilaf saga are the only two on this list that I can say I don’t like. Though the end of the saga picks up a lot.

#18

First World Tournament (Dragon Ball)

first tourn

This saga really steps up from the first one. We meet Goku’s best friend and rival for the first time, and watch as they train for the martial arts tournament and rise up the ranks.

#17

Red Ribbon Saga (Dragon Ball)

red ribbon saga

Goku is again in search of the Dragon Balls, but this time he takes on an entire army. There are some cool villains and it is fun enough to watch, though it gets a bit dull at times. Very good overall though.

#16

Baby Saga (Dragon Ball GT)

dragon ball baby saga

This is a neat story that brings up the Saiyan race’s past and how that comes to haunt the survivors. Baby is a cool, unique opponent who gives the Z fighters a run for their money.

#15

Second World Tournament (Dragon Ball)

Shen-and-his-students

This is where I really start to love the sagas. The first fight between Yamcha and Tien set the bar for the action that we will see from every saga made after this one. It is a great saga, with lots of intense fights. Really good stuff.

#14

Garlic Jr. Saga (Dragon Ball Z)

DragonBallZ_Garlic_jr_Saga

For this being filler, it is quite phenomenal. For once, the center of attention is in the hands of someone other than Goku. The fights are great and the stakes are high. Very good saga.

#13

Golden Frieza Saga (Dragon Ball Super)

dragon ball Goku_and_Vegeta_vs_Frieza

I was a bit disappointed with this one, for the movie, Ressurection F, I found better. I wasn’t thrilled with the use of Frieza as an enemy again, but it is a blast to watch nonetheless. And I probably would have enjoyed it a lot more if I didn’t see the movie first, for nothing was surprising in this saga because of it. Though to be fair, the movie is  my favorite DB movie ever made.

#12

Super 17 Saga (Dragon Ball GT)

FullPowerEnergyWaveSuper17

This was an interesting villain to use and provided us with some good action and use of characters other than Goku (sort of). This saga really stepped up the GT series in my eyes.

#11

Battle Of Gods Saga (Dragon Ball Super)

fan_made_dragonball_super_battle_of_gods_saga_by_obsolete00-dae2ail

This as well is dampened by releasing a movie first, though this time, the series is better than the movie. This introduces some truly great characters that stick with the entire series, not to mention shows us a whole new scale of how big the world(s) are and how pitiful Goku, with all his might, really is.

#10

Majunior Saga (Dragon Ball)

majunior saga

This shows Goku as an adult beating down the off spring of an old enemy. Both Goku and Majunior rise to the finals in an awesome World Tournament, and give us the best fight in the Dragon Ball series.

#9

King Piccolo Saga (Dragon Ball)

king piccolo saga

This is the first truly menacing villain we see in the entire franchise, and it is awesome to watch. Finally we see Goku get beaten easily (well, for the second time, actually), making us wonder how anyone will ever stop Piccolo from taking over the world. A great saga.

#8

Saiyan Saga (Dragon Ball Z)

dragon ball saiyan saga

The first saga of the new DBZ series really takes it a step beyond Dragon Ball. Impossibly strong villains show us that Goku and friends have a lot of catching up to do. We at long last learn the truth about Goku’s past as well. We are also introduced to his son for the first time.

#7

Universe 6 Tournament (Dragon Ball Super)

universe 6 tourn

This is a lot of fun. This is the first saga that Super gives us that wasn’t a movie, and it’s just awesome. A bunch of new characters are introduced, with amazing powers. The Saiyans also face off against their most dangerous (and coolest) villain to date. Lots of good fights within this tournament. Awesome stuff.

#6

Namek Saga (Dragon Ball Z)

dragonball_cast_namek_saga_by_skarface3k3-d78syo9

This one is really long and drawn out and the famous clash between Goku and Frieza isn’t all that great. But soooooooo much stuff happens in between the first landing on Namek to it’s demise that helped push this up the list. Many great fights, power ups and revelations happen that make this one really cool to watch.

#5

Shadow Dragon Saga (Dragon Ball GT)

shadow dragons

The last and best saga in GT and the last saga fans would get for over a decade. It is really a great saga, with a lot of cool enemies, the return of old ones and the fiercest enemy to ever grace the series up to that point and still after Super, is quite formidable. And he’s cool. This saga has some new surprises in it that make it really fun to watch.

 

#4

Majin Buu Saga (Dragon Ball Z)

dragon ball majin buu saga

This saga gives us a ton more characters, lots of new surprises, an invincible enemy and just so much more cool stuff. It is a lot of fun to watch, though it drags on like the Namek Saga.

#3

Cell Saga (Dragon Ball Z)

dragon ball cell saga

 

I am including everything with Future Trunks and the androids in this saga as well. This has some of the best action, some amazing transformations, a great suspenseful story, and the use of mostly every character in the DB universe. It is really awesome. And the Goku vs. Cell fight is my favorite one in the whole DBZ series.

#2

Goku Black Saga (Dragon Ball Super)

dragon_ball_super_saga_black_by_saodvd-daesxzp

This has an interesting, dangerous enemy, with a deeper story than the DB franchise has seen so far. There is a lot of twists and turns that make way for some of the best fights that have been in the franchise so far. The last fights are very different from what we come to expect, which was a cool surprise.

#1

Tournament of Power (Dragon Ball Super)

top

This is what the series is all about. Just awesome action with tons of characters, one episode after another. So many surprises happen during the 48 minutes of fighting, and the fights far surpass anything seen in the franchise. The conclusion is really good. The Goku vs Jiren fight is the best in the franchise, and tops off the end well. Speaking of the ending, it it just fantastic and ends the series on a happy, positive note, much more so than DBZ did, in my opinion.

 

Well there you have it.

Dragon Ball is something I have watched almost my entire life, and I expect to continue rewatching them for the rest of my life. I love all 4 series. They have brought me so much joy. I just hope they come out with more series’. Super showed that they can still make an amazing show and I want to see more.

Though for the past 3 years or so, I have been looking forward to watching the new DBS episode every week, but now that is gone and I will not be able to handle it for a while…sniff… It’s very sad. At least I have the dubbed versions to look forward too!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Tournament of Hotties: Disney Princesses (Round 1, Part 2)

Welcome back. We’ve got 6 more animated beauties to judge, so let’s get right to it. Check out part 1 if you missed it!

The first two women are from movies I haven’t seen since the year they came out, so that was like 2 decades ago, so I don’t remember anything about them, so I will have to judge by the pictures.

Pocahontas VS Mulan

First off is the Native American Pocahontas. She’s got a tall, slender body that looks to be nothing but muscle, in a hot way. Her long, flowing hair does nothing but add to her allure.

And the whole one strap thing on her hide dress? Very sexy.

pocahontas_5_e941b576

See? And we’d all like to get her to make that face. If you picture the background a bedspread instead of a purple sky, this picture becomes 100x more erotic.

Next is Mulan. I think she is a princess of some sorts, but unfortunately not a very attractive one. This might be because she spends much of the movie impersonating a man, so let’s just take a look at her womanly side.

Turns out she’s very beautiful, but in more of a cute kind of way. She’s someone you could see yourself settling down with. Props to Mushu, though, he’s copping a feel with his feet while distracting Mulan by staring longingly into her eyes and tickling her chin. Man…what a pro…

 

Pocahontas is far more sexy, however, which is what this tournament is all about. Now if Mulan had appeared in the movie like this, she might have had a chance.

Victor- Pocahontas

Tiana VS Rapunzel

Let’s start by talking about the beauty from New Orleans, Tiana. On top of being exceptionally beautiful, she cooks and cleans like no other, and apparently can make some truly spectacular gumbo. In the Princess and the Frog, she shows off a frog fetish and then is married into royalty. You know, normal stuff. While not good looking as a frog, there is no denying her amazing looks as a human.

Rapunzel is a princess kidnapped as a baby as seen in Tangled. Despite never leaving her tower, she grows up into an extremely hot blond and though her hair is like 30 feet long, it is just as stunning as she is. She is also adorable in her looks, but even more so in her personality. Her adventurous spirit mixed with her kind and innocent personality really make you gush. She is a master of hot and cute, which is always big points. The woman who kidnapped her and posed as her mother, for an older gal, isn’t bad either.

I wouldn’t mind getting in on some of that. The picture on the right really shows off Rapunzel’s radiance…

Anyway, while both of these princesses are gorgeous, it’s Rapunzel’s charming allure that wins the round…and her overcoming hotness of course.

Merida VS Anna

I will be blunt, Merida, apart from being brave and all that, doesn’t have much going for her…like at all. Though, for some reason the actress who plays her in the TV series Once Upon a Time makes the character sexy, strong and beautiful. The more I watched her, the more I noticed how beautiful she is.

Though since this is not what she looked like in the movie, this is entirely irrelevant.

Anna isn’t all that hot either, though she is just a little bit. And standing up there next to Merida, her looks really shine through. She is definitely attractive, which is more than can be said about Merida.

Series Ranked: Eminem Albums/Revival Review

A few weeks ago, Eminem released a brand new album and I’ve got to say, it is sort of shocking. He seemed to mellow out a tad, going with slower, more personal songs, a side we haven’t seen from him in a while.

The style of songs are at first listen, very different and take a bit getting used to, much in the way some of his other albums did, but even more so. It is a little startling, but the more you listen to it, the more you see that Eminem at his core is very much present throughout every song. It turns out to be a very good album once you get used to it.

So how does it stand compared with his other albums? Let’s find out.

I am going to rank all his full length albums from my least favorite to most favorite.

Before I begin, however, I just want to inform you that I think his songs from his Shady XV compilation album and the Southpaw soundtrack are definitely his best ever made, but since they are not full albums with just him, they will not be listed, though I highly recommend checking these two out, for it really shows off his mastery of the English language.

And now, here we go!

#9

Infinite (1996)

Eminem_Infinite_edited-front-large

Eminem’s first full length album. It is quite good, but the low quality hurts it and actually prevents it from being higher on the list.

 

 

 

#8

Encore (2004)

Encore_(Eminem_album)_coverartHis fifth album is also his most disappointing, and the artist himself agrees, I believe, blaming his drug addiction on the poor result of this album. It features some very good songs on it, but also a handful of, in my opinion, the only bad songs he’s ever made. The rest are catchy and kind of good, but also very weird, making it easy to believe he was struggling with drugs at the time he was writing the album.

 

#7

The Slim Shady LP (1999)

slim shady lp

The first major label release of Eminem and the album that brought him world renown. It is really quite strange, but amazing nonetheless.

 

 

 

#6

The Marshall Mathers LP (2000)

The_Marshall_Mathers_LPHis third album is his best selling and even holds the record for the fast selling album of all time, last I heard anyway. It is a few steps up from his last album, though lyrically it is more like what you would expect to hear from every other rapper in the world, and I like Eminem when he does he own unique style more so than when he raps about drugs and killing people.

 

#5

The Eminem Show (2002)

The_Eminem_ShowHis fourth album is like a hybrid of the two albums preceding this one, making it quite fun to listen to with some of the catchiest songs he’s ever written.

 

 

 

#4

Relapse (2009)

Relapse_(album)His first album to come out after I and many other believed he had retired. It was quite different than his last few albums, sort of reminiscent of the Slim Shady LP, but with better raps. There are a few too many joke songs and not enough of the emotional ones he usually has on each album though.

 

 

#3

Revival (2017)

Revival_by_Eminem_coverAnd here is where his brand new album stands! That’s right, as of right now I find it to be his third best! Some truly unique songs with plenty of accompaniment from other artists make this truly a one of a kind album for him. A downside to the album is there is a bit too much on his political views in his lyrics, and we all know politics need to stay out of music.

 

#2

Recovery (2010)

Recovery_Album_CoverThis album really shows off what the rapper is capable of, propelling him into a completely different league from all of his previous albums. Every song is unique and full of energy. It’s just awesome.

 

 

 

#1

The Marshall Mathers LP 2 (2013)

mmlp2This leaves us with his only “sequel” album and by far his best one. This took all the momentum of Recovery and tripled it. Every song was full of twists and turns, leaving you unable to predict what would happen next. The album has a ton of other artists to add their talents to the songs, the beats are awesome, not those typical rap beats, thus making the album hard to believe it is even rap. And every single song is jaw dropping. You can tell he put a ton of effort into this one.

Revival had the unfortunate timing to follow up his number 1 album, which makes me wonder if it hadn’t, would I like it more?

Who knows? But that is all his albums, from worst to best, though I can’t say any of them are anything but good.

Secrets 80% Of Drivers Seemingly Don’t Know

There’s a lot of things everyone sees every day when they are out driving, specifically what other drivers do, or rather what they don’t do. There are some things I personally see so often that I have come to the conclusion that most people just don’t know about these things they can do while driving to improve their own abilities and avoid causing traffic build up. So I am going to be a nice guy and share some tips

Secret #1

Did you know that you can actually press down on the gas pedal when going uphill?

If you never knew this, I suggest trying it out! So many people go up steep hills and just allow themselves to just drop like 20 mph. But if you press down harder on the gas pedal you can avoid this and actually maintain your speed, thus preventing the abysmal traffic so many people have to sit in on every highway that involves hills.

Secret #2

Your car will not flip when going around turns. This is not to say you shouldn’t exercise caution around turns and adjust your speed accordingly depending on what type of vehicle you are driving. But I promise you, unless the turn is EXTREMELY sharp, chances are you will be completely fine.

In other words, you don’t have to drop 10-20 mph for every little curve in the road, you are quite safe, I assure you. A slight dip in speed, like 5 mph tops might be acceptable, but a lot of times, the speed limit will get you through easily. Often faster than the limit is good enough.

It’s all about maintaining your speed. The worst culprits are the idiots who do like 10-15 under most of the time (I have a lot of winding roads) and then when we finally get to a straight away with a passing zone, these guys think they are hot stuff and start doing 10-15 over, but as soon as that passing zone ends 10 seconds later and the slight curves show up again, they are back to being slow idiots.

Now when you combine turns with hills, forget it, people are going to drive 20-25 under the speed limit. Again, in 99% of the cases, you will be fine, either going down or uphill and with or without turns.

Secret #3

Don’t follow too close to the person in front of you, especially on multi-lane highways. I can’t help but laugh at just about everyone tailgating everyone on highways at high speeds, as if they leave more than a car space in front of them, then they are going to be late to wherever they are going.

car line

This too, is simply not the case. Leaving a safe distance around you will make you no later, I swear it. If anything, it will prevent collision if the person in front of you slams on his brakes. You won’t hit them, and the person behind you won’t rear end you.

And even if a collision doesn’t happen, when the person in front of you hits his brakes, you immediately have to hit yours, and then the person behind you has to hit them harder, and this goes on and on with each person in line having to hit their brakes harder and harder, eventually causing traffic to come to a complete stop.

So you see, traffic and collisions are going to slow you down more than distancing yourself from other cars.

And do try to avoid being one of those idiots who squeeze in to that tiny spot in between to cars when shifting lanes, because again, the person you cut in front of has to hit his brakes and we find ourselves in that same crawling situation. I know I am asking a lot of people to be considerate of those behind them, but I must try anyway.

Secret #4

This one isn’t as much of a common problem, but I still experience it quite often.

Don’t turn on your high beams if you can see someone in front of you! No matter how far ahead of you they are, you’re still blinding them. And make sure you have them off when you are around other cars too! Almost every day some doofus has their brights on, blinding everyone. Pay attention, will you!

 

And that’s all I will generously share today! Please try to follow these secrets now that you have been enlightened!!
