8. All computers are connected. You can access the information on the villain's desktop computer, even if it's turned off.

9. Powerful computers beep whenever you press a key or whenever the screen changes. Some computers also slow down the output on the screen so that it doesn't go faster than you can read. The *really* advanced ones also emulate the sound of a dot-matrix printer as the characters come across the screen.

17. If a disk has got encrypted files, you are automatically asked for a password when you try to access it.

18. No matter what kind of computer disk it is, it'll be readable by any system you put it into. All application software is usable by all computer platforms.

19. The more high-tech the equipment, the more buttons it has. However, everyone must have been highly trained, because the buttons aren't labelled.

20. Most computers, no matter how small, have reality-defying three-dimensional, real-time, photo-realistic animated graphics capability.

21. Laptops, for some strange reason, always seem to have amazing real-time video phone capabilities and the performance of a CRAY-MP.

22. Whenever a character looks at a VDU, the image is so bright that it projects itself onto his/her face.

How to change the button colors for the Guitar Hero Controller.

Intro How to change the button colors for the Guitar Hero Controller.
Hi, at first I wanted to change the colors (green, red, yellow, blue, and orange) around to confuse my friends, but then I decided to make it rainbow colored. it just changes the colors up. The buttons will not change the game either, all the buttons will stay the same. (Green, red, yellow, blue, orange.)

LET'S START

Guitar

step 1 Opening the guitar.
Unscrew the back of the controller.

Guitar

step 2 Unscrewing the Guitar Neck.
Unscrew the guitar's neck, there should be 5 screws or something.. Not too many though.

Guitar

step 3 Unscrew the button board.
Okay, now. Here is the button board, it should say A,B,C,D,E. Unscrew the 2 screws on the side.

Guitar

step 4 Changing the buttons.
Now, re-arrange the button colors in any way you like. I made mine rainbow colored. This is cool, and you can trick your friends! Note: The button color changes made will not effect gameplay, it just makes the controller look cooler.

Guitar

step 5 Finishing up.
Now, screw the button board back on, screw the neck back on, and then screw the back of the guitar back on

Guitar

step 6 Finished!
Now, you're done! This is my first instructable, and I hope you guys enjoyed it! Have fun tricking your friends with the button changes! Also, in the pictures, my controller's white pick guard is off, I will be giving it a little paint job.

Jeans To Make You Slutty (Hot)

Jeans

These jeans aren’t held up with buttons or belts, but with two little strings and maybe some double-sided tape. The “bikini” portion stops just short of your woman (or man, if you’re extra-daring) parts, exposing a good third of your ass. What this means, of course, is that no real underwear can be worn with these pants… but if you’re the kind who would buy these, chances are good that you don’t wear underwear in the first place. Also, notice the zipper. It’s not in the front, as that would make too much sense, but on the side, allowing for an extra couple inches of visible skin.

Hey ladies! Running out of ways to tell men “I’m available and easy”? Got a festering wound on your lower hip that needs to be aired out? Can’t think of a birthday gift for your great aunt Melba? Well, allow me to introduce you to the product of the unholy union of Brazil and Japan: Ultra Low-Rise Denim Bikini Pants.

Sadly, there are no pockets in these jeans, but no worries! Stuff a wad of cash in your bra and stick your car keys down next to your crotch–you’ll be good to go because you’re just that classy.

All about numbers....Really very very interesting

The numbers we all use (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.) are known as "Arabic " numbers to

distinguish them from the "Roman Numerals" (I, II, III, IV, V, VI, etc). Actually

the arabs popularized these numbers but they were originally used by the early

phonecian traders to count and keep track of their trading accounts.

Have you ever thought why ........ 1 means "one", and 2 means "two"? The roman

numerals are easy to understand but what was the logic behind the phonecian

numbers?


It's all about angles !

It's the number of angles. If one writes the numbers down (see below) on a piece

of paper in their older forms, one quickly sees why. I have marked the angles with


"o"s.

No 1 has one angle.

No 2 has two angles.

No 3 has three angles.

etc.

and "O" has no angles

Horrible Fact about KFC



KFC has been a part of our American traditions for many years. Many people, day in and day out, eat at KFC religiously. Do they really know what they are eating? During a recent study of KFC done at the University of New Hampshire , they found some very upsetting facts. First of all, has anybody noticed that just recently, the company has changed their name?
Kentucky Fried Chicken has become KFC. Does anybody know why? We thought the real reason was because of the "FRIED" food issue.
IT'S NOT! !
The reason why they call it KFC is because they can not use the word chicken anymore. Why? KFC does not use real chickens. They actually use genetically manipulated organisms. These so called "chickens" are kept alive by tubes inserted into their bodies to pump blood and nutrients throughout their structure. They have no beaks, no feathers, and no feet. Their bone structure is dramatically shrunk to get more meat out of them. This is great for KFC.
Because they do not have to pay so much for their production costs. There is no more plucking of the feathers or the removal of the beaks and feet. The government has told them to change all of their menus so they do not say chicken anywhere. If you look closely you will notice this. Listen
to their commercials, I guarantee you will not see or hear the word chicken. I find this matter to be very disturbing.
I hope people will start to realize this and let other people know. Please forward this message to as many people as you can. Together we make KFC start using real chicken again.

Art of Proposing to your Girl Friend

Proposing to you girl friend is the most important thing in a man's life. This is a question that brings immense joy and excitement in your life. This moment is cherished all your life and therefore this moment has to be special. Now before you get down on one knee, read these dos and don'ts of proposing.

DO's:

Do Talk about Marriage
Before you propose, talk about the possibility of getting married. Make sure it's something that you both want.



Do make it a Surprise
Even though you have discussed marriage, the proposal itself should still be a surprise. Find a moment and a way that is special and she should not be expecting it. Remember it should be a surprise.



Do Find the Right Engagement Ring
Since wearing an engagement ring is a lifetime commitment, make sure it's the right style. If you think its difficult choosing the right ring yourself, you can also ask her mother or best friend to help choose the ring.



Do Take Elders Blessings
It is always better to take the consent of both the parents. Therefore before you pop the question, make sure that you have spoken to her and your parents about it.



Do Pick a Personal Spot
Think about your favorite romantic places -- choose a romantic spot to pop the question. Just make sure that it is a special spot and this is your personal moment.



Do Be Creative
Incorporate your personality, favorite things, foods etc. into the proposal. Make it memorable and something to cherish the rest of your lives.



Do Drop to one knee
It's not 1950, but there is something so charming and romantic about a man on one knee asking the love of his life to marry him. Even if you're not a traditional guy, it will add to the seriousness and lovingness of the proposal.



Do Tell Her Why You Want to Marry Her
Don't just utter those 4 little words, tell her why she's the one for you, what marriage means to you, and what your hopes for the future are. Make her feel special and great about the relationship and the future ahead.



DON'Ts:



Don't Make it Public
Please don't propose to her in a public place. Make it intimate and a personal thing. The moment belongs to you therefore this magical moment should be between just the two of you – after all, you've got the rest of your lives to tell other people about your marriage but you've only got one engagement moment.



Don't Propose on a holiday
Consider picking a day meaningful to your relationship, such as the anniversary of your first date. Your girlfriend wants her day to shine – don't propose on a holiday that can't be yours as a couple.



Don't Hide the Engagement Ring in Food
I hate to say it, (as I'm sure there are some readers who were planning to do just this) but hiding the engagement ring in food is a tired idea. It's been in a thousand movies and TV shows, and you won't win any points for creativity. Even worse, you may end your romantic proposal with a trip to the emergency room or the dentist.



Don't Do it in Front of Her Family
Its one thing to take blessings of her parents but don't make the mistake of proposing in their presence. Proposals in front of family have an added level of stress that you don't need. Take this moment to be just the two of you; don't worry, you can call everyone immediately afterwards.



Don't Propose if you are not sure
This is an important decision of your life. Therefore first think whether you are ready for marriage and responsibility and then propose to her. Also get to know what she feels too .



Don't Expect Her to say Yes Immediately
You're asking someone to spend the rest of their life with you – an extremely important decision. Just because you've asked, doesn't mean she is ready to say yes. If your sweetheart says maybe, take it in stride and give her some time to consider the proposal.

Cop gone wild- Lying and making threats



This happened in a speed trap town in Missouri called St. George with only a few ... all » officers that think they have more power than they really do. This happened outside of their jurisdiction and they have no police powers, except for felonies in progress, where they stopped me, according to state law.

The commuter lot is open 24 hours a day and can be confirmed by calling 1-888-Ask-MoDOT.

You can see me pass the officer at :08 seconds as he nearly blocks the road as he sits waiting for the next car without license plate lights to come by.

You'll hear this officer tell me he'll make up "9 different charges" including resisting arrest before he has even tried to arrest me. You'll hear him say how I didn't use my turn signal and I was weaving when the video clearly proves him wrong.

I truly thought if I didn't suck up, I would be beaten and maybe killed.

I think the officers last name is Sgt. Kenline, but I am not sure on the spelling, if you know for sure, please email me.

The Woman in our life in the future

Tomorrow We may get a working woman as a wife, but we should marry keeping these thoughts in mind as well.



"Here is a girl, who is as much educated as you are;

Who is earning almost as much as you do;

One, who has dreams and aspirations just as you have because she is as human as you are;

One, who has never entered the kitchen in her life just like you or your Sister haven't, as she was busy in studies and competing in a system that gives no special concession to girls for their culinary achievements.

One, who has lived and loved her parents & brothers & sisters, almost as much as you do for 20-25 years of her life;

One, who has bravely agreed to leave behind all that, her home, people who love her, to adopt your home, your family, your ways and even your family name

One, who is somehow expected to be a master-chef from day #1, while you sleep oblivious to her predicament in her new circumstances, environment and that kitchen.

One, who is expected to make the tea, first thing in the morning and cook food at the end of the day, even if she is as tired as you are, maybe more, and yet never ever expected to complain; to be a servant, a cook, a mother, a wife, even if she doesn't want to; and is learning
just like you are as to what you want from her; and is clumsy and sloppy at times and knows that you won't like it if she is too demanding, or if she learns faster than you;

One, who has her own set of friends, and that includes boys and even men at her workplace too, those, who she knows from school days and yet is willing to put all that on the back-burners to avoid your irrational jealousy, unnecessary competition and your inherent insecurities;

"Yes, she can drink and dance just as well as you can, but won't, simply because you won't like it, even though you say otherwise."

"One, who can be late from work once in a while when deadlines, just like yours, are to be met;

One, who is doing her level best and wants to make this most important relationship in her entire life a grand success, if you just help her and trust her;

One, who just wants one thing from you, as you are the only one she knows in your entire house - your unstinted support, your sensitivities and most importantly - your understanding, or love, if you may call it."


But many of us guys don't understand this...

8 Weird Asian Martial Arts Weapons

From iron claws and meteor hammers to deer antler blades and emei needles, ancient Martial Arts weapons range greatly in shape and design, yet all have only one purpose - to injure. In the hands of a skilled assassin, even the humble chopsticks can become savage weapons.

Brutal metal-link whips, miniature swords disguised as tobacco pipes, fans edges with razor-sharp blades and poison-tipped arrows are all lethal in their own right but pale in comparison with an almost mystical weapon of decapitation.

Urumi
Also known as “chuttuval,” which means “coiled sword,” this flexible weapon is used in the South Indian Martial Art of Kalaripayatt.

The blade (or multiple blades, as in the urumi pictured here) is flexible enough to be rolled up and stored when not used, or even worn as a belt and whipped out on demand.

The blade or blades are typically razor-sharp and bad news for anyone standing in the vicinity of the person wielding the urumi.

urmi payattu

2. The Tekko-kagi (”hand claws”)
Tekko-kagi (”hand claws”)
Ninjas would use the tekko-kagi claws to guard against sword attacks, allowing them to swipe and potentially knock the sword from an assailant’s hands.

Or, ninjas could use claws the claws offensively against their opponents with devastating results.

Typically made from aluminum, steel, iron or wood, tekko weapons are believed by martial arts historians to have originated when the Bushi in Okinawa, Japan began wielding the steel shoes of their horses as a means of self-defense against assailants.
Tekko-kagi
3. The Kusari-gama
Kusari-gama
Kusari-gama is a traditional Japanese weapon that consists of Scythe-like blade,Kama, on a metal chain with a heavy iron weight at the end.

This weapon came from the design of the farmer’s scythe but this was not a weapon that farmers used.

The art of handling the Kusarigama is called Kusarigamajutsu.
4. The Nunchaku
Nunchaku
A nunchaku is two sections of wood (or metal in modern incarnations) connected by a cord or chain. Chinese nunchaku tend to be rounded, whereas Japanese are octagonal.

The traditional nunchaku is made from a strong, flexible hardwood such as oak, loquat or pasania. Originally, the wood would be submerged in mud for several years, where lack of oxygen and optimal acidity prevent rotting.

The end result is a hardened wood. The rope is made from horsehair, and was traditionally claimed to be able to block a sword. Finally, the wood is very finely sanded and rubbed with an oil or stain for preservation.
5. The Meteor Hammer & Rope Dart
Meteor Hammer Rope Dart
This weapon is comprised of a long rope with twin metal weights, “hammers”, or darts on each end. When used as a weapon, the hammer or dart on the front end is used for attack and the other for protection.

The rope wraps around the neck, back, shoulder, elbow, wrist, thigh, foot, or waist. When the hammer or dart is released, it strikes outward with stunning and surprising speed. It is one of Chinese martial arts’ most unique and difficult-to-master weapons.
6. San-Jie-Gun (Three Section Staff)
San-Jie-Gun
The three sectional staff, is a historical weapon, which appears in the Chinese book “Sangokushi”. Its distinctive feature is three 70 cm sticks chained together making it much longer than a long staff.

It can be swung around, or as a staff, using one’s whole body space to fend off an attacker. A Chinese weapon constructed from three pieces of wood connected by metal rings at their ends. Lengths of the sections are roughly equal, each about the length of the practitioner’s arms (with the diameter around one inch).

The three sectional staff can be used as a long range weapon when held at one end and swung freely, or a short-range weapon when two of the sections are held and used to strike or parry.
7. Shurikens (Throwing Star)
Throwing Star
One of the most popular weapons of the Ninja, the shuriken was used as more of a distraction than an actual weapon. Although they can hurt they rarely penetrate deep enough to kill. Shurikens come with anywhere from 4 to 12 points traditionally.
8. Tessen (Iron Fan)
Tessen (Iron Fan)
Folding fans with outer spokes made of iron which were designed to look like regular, harmless folding fans or solid clubs shaped to look like a closed fan.

Samurai could take these to places where swords or other overt weapons were not allowed, and some swordsmanship schools included training in the use of the tessen as a weapon.

The tessen was also used for fending off arrows and darts, as a throwing weapon, and as an aid in swimming, like hand-flippers.

How do you know when you're in love?

How do you know when you're in love
is it the crazy things you do
is it the fact that my heart skips a beat
everytime that i think of you
Is it the fact that I can't sleep at night
when your image is in my head
Or is it the fact that I can't stop smiling
after every word that you've said
Is it the need to hold you in my arms
and keep you there forever
Or is it the fact that I wrote you a poem

whenever I have to take you home
Or is it just being here without you

that longs for your kiss

for there are so many things I would miss.
