On shouting at the TV when playing video games...
(cut for the F word)
I need to learn that people in the computer and on TV cannot hear me and thus shouting at them will not affect the outcome of the game/show.
Mind you, that one time when I yelled "VINCENT! VINCENT COME OUT OF THE COFFIN. I MEAN IT. COME. OUT. OKAY FINE STAY IN THERE, NO CID FOR YOU," he did actually come out after about nine or ten trips to the house and 385784698456894 times pressing circle.
Things that didn't work:
"CID. WHERE DID YOU PARK THE PLANEBOAT. I CANNOT REMEMBER WHICH DOT IT IS."
"DO THE COMBO. NO. DO IT. DO THE FUCKING... see, Sesshoumaru, you didn't do it, and now you're dead. I hope you're happy."
"Bowser. Make your castle stop sucking to drive around."
"No! Nonononononono! Override the heat shutdown! Override the... oh fuck, I exploded."
"SQUALL. DO NOT MAKE ME PLAY THE RETARDED CARD GAME. DO NOT. WHERE IS THE 'DATE SEIFER' BUTTON? Oh bugger this, I lost all of my cards again."
"...Why would aliens put a big Swastika on the floor? Oh God I hope Captain America doesn't show up."
Actually, that last one did work: Captain America does not appear in Doom or any of its sequels. Though from memory there is a big picture of Hitler in the second secret level of Doom II, which put me right off. Also, I just realised I still haven't seen the Doom movie,
