    Smmbod reacted to kav0503 for a blog entry, What has happened...   
    I realize that it has been a while since I last played, but seriously; What has happened to JR? I played for about 3-4 hours today and not once was there more than 6 people. I was on the RPG server and there wasn't more than 5 people there the entire time. At one point, for about and hour or so, there was only me and an AFK Frosty. Is the server, simply, more active at different time (I played from 6ish to 9ish pm EST)? Is the server simply just on a decline? If anyone has any insight please let me know below because, frankly, I am concerned. This server has always been one that I enjoy playing on and I would be fairly sad if this server went down the drain, like oh so many others do. Again please let me know if you know anything about this lack of players.
    Thanks,
    -Kav

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, Algebra - How Society Fails It   
    So, my problem is that I'm having trouble sitting down and studying/learning Algebra. I have the brain power to do it, it's not like it's hard, I actually think it's fun sometimes! I'm just not motivated enough to do it. So, I was suggested to check out math games and stuff. It's all garbage! It's still the same problem, you just added a picture of a cat in the background! It's not any better! The only way to teach something to someone like me is to teach it, without the student knowing it.

    For example, I used to HATE typing. The class that was teaching us to type faster was horrible and boring and was just the worst. Then I came across JRCraft. I then went through the ranks and my need to type faster increased and I actually taught MYSELF how to type. Now I can type like it's nothing. I don't need to look at the keyboard or even the screen sometimes. I never would have learned that in school. I learned that by not knowing I was learning it.

    So, all the games are just a reskin of the problem, and it's crap. Why can't people understand this? I learned the basics of how economy works through Team Fortress 2's hat market! I can usually identify scams and sharking and that sort. I wouldn't learn this stuff in school. I think school's are failing by cramming knowledge into our heads instead of letting us experience the problem in a video game.

    That's all I wanted to say. I was just getting really fed up by these crap games.

    Smmbod reacted to k3v_o - Bringer of Dark Me for a blog entry, [Updated] Dye'n my hair for Suicide Prevention Charity   
    As some of you may know through Facebook, I am going to dye my hair for charity, and not just your regular blue or red... I'm going all out rainbow!

    This is for RAG week 2013 through the Student Union at my college which is a week where people raise money through different methods for charities in Ireland. the charity I have chosen is Be Aware! which is a Suicide Prevention Charity.

    I chose this charity as I have lost a good friend of mine to suicide during last summer of 2012 and for another reason that I would prefer not to say. Also if I raise €75 or more I get free RAG week tickets (RAG week is also a week of inhumane amounts of alcohol and partying).

    I am willing to accept donations through PayPal, so if you wish to donate message me and I'll send you my details.

    Next Friday I will also upload photos of my new lush hair on both Facebook and a blog post here so you can all enjoy laughing at me...




    I'm...... I'm probably not going to enjoy this

    UPDATE!

    2/3/2013

    So here I am. Got my hair done yesterday in Tralee and I must say, looking fine I am The barbers Claude Monte in the square Tralee did my hair for only €20 for the bleaching and dyed my hair and cut it for free so that was really cool of them to charge so little. I would have uploaded them yesturday... But I was exhausted after the week so I went to bed instead. Also I was not able to do Rainbow as it would be too expensive and also by the time college starts after RAG week the dye would have ran into eachother. So instead I went blue. Anyway;

    Heres my hair:



    As you can see it is a bit purple ATM, but once I wash a few times then re-dye it should be a nice blue colour. Also, sorry about the picture quality... took it with my phone a few times and that was the best one so you'll have to live with it for a while until I can put up a decent RAG week photo of it.

    Finally, in the week I had to raise money for Be Aware, I raised a total of €200. I also earned 2 sets of tickets along with that so I am going to sell the other lot for €30 making back the loss of getting my hair done plus another €10 for myself "Imported Juice" during RAG week.

    Smmbod reacted to RockMelons for a blog entry, what I think of my new phone so for   
    well hear it goes my first blog, hope you like it
    walking down the stairs on Christmas day, I when through all the gifts Santa had given me this year and well it seems I have been very good this year as what do I find in upon my chair (in are house all gifts are placed on individual chairs)
    a new phone! and so far the Samsung galaxy ace 2 hasn't given me one bit of trouble, the touch screen is big but of a size I can comfortable fit inside my pocket, and is so much easier to use than my old HTC and plays movies from YouTube without stopping once and with email built in its like having a laptop I can put in my pocket it. even has sat nav built in with Google maps and when I haven't any WiFi it only costs a £1.00 a day to use data and after that O2 stop charging.
    this phone is a great value for money because its from Santa so its free, and to me is better than most of the new phones out there,
    far instance my sister who has a Samsung galaxy S2 wouldn't buy the S3 because there's effectively no difference other than an even larger screen
    and I wouldn't buy the S3 because its just my phone with a larger screen, and I d not want nor need a bigger screen because I can play the piano on my phone , so why would I need a bigger screen?
    and the piano isn't the only app I have gotten since Christmas, with millions of free apps in the easily accessible 'play store' I have all ready got a large collection and it takes no time at all to access then and load them
    to sum up this phone is to me the best phone your money could buy with value in mined cause its basically the S2 but better and far less money even if your not getting it from Santa

    Heres the mail I sent to the yogscast:
    Hey Yogscast!
    I've created a Custom Map (It took 5 months to make) pretty much for you guys.
    Its called Trinitology, and its a map made for TNT people like you guys
    It has mazes, jumping puzzles (single player only. You're safe for now, Simon.), tnt (everywhere!) and a bunch of other stuff.
    Its my dream to have you guys play it. Please consider it!

    This is the reply I received a few hours later:
    Hi,

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, The Problem with Made Up Holiday   
    Now, let me put this out of the way; *** Pride Day IS a holiday, it's just not the one that everyone cares about; like Easter, and Thanks Giving, Christmas, and Halloween, and some others. Unless you write it down somewhere, you'll never know it's *** Pride Day. Also, I have nothing against gays or anything. I mean, if you want to like your own gender, I don't care. If you want to go out in the woods and have 'fun' with trees, I don't care as long as I don't see you do that. So, story time!

    Okay, so, there's this teacher, or whatever, counselor? I don't even think he has an actual job. Anyway, I walk into school, sporting my BAMF looking hoodie on top of my cranium, walk over to my friends before the bell rings, and then, I see this guys face. Let's call him, Dr. Annoying. So, Dr. Annoying walks over, and I instantly remember, "I'm wearing my hood inside the building again..." and take it off. This is because he used to walk over to me and tell me to remove it. I think this is dumb! Why can't I wear a hood in school? Am I too BAMF for the school? Is that it? Anyway, even if my hood is removed by the time I spot him, he still walks over to me, but instead of talking directly, he walks past me, touches my shoulder, and says, "Thanks, sir." Now, that creeps me out. 1) Because he touches me. 2) Because he calls me sir. I'd like to be called sir, but when says it, it sounds really weird. Anyway, it caused me to not like Dr. Annoying.

    And I realized I didn't like him even more, today. Me and my friends, chillin' out, eating lunch, studying words for the vocab test in the next class, and so. We also have discussions. Today it somehow got to history, which lead me to say something like, "What if History is just a misunderstanding of what really happened?" So, me, being a brony, start thinking about the Rainbow Factory (If you don't know what it is and you're a brony, you need to learn more about the community.) Now, it's basically a factory that people are failures in life come to die to be turned into rainbows. However, no one but the workers are allowed to know. The rest of the world thinks it's a very special job that you get chosen for. So, we were talking about how, "Why don't we get all the people who suck at life, and send em off to a rainbow factory?" And so on. However, for some odd reason, the one time we discuss this is *** pride day. Which means, "Rainbows on ALL the walls!" When did rainbows resemble ***? It doesn't make any sense!

    So, Mr. Annoying walks over, and he's all like, "What are we talking about? Anything to do with *** Pride Day?" We all say 'no' to get him to leave. When he finally does, one of friends says, "He thinks we were making fun of gays." And I'm thinking, "WHEN THE F**K DID RAINBOWS BECOME A '***' THING?!?!" I was so upset that this guy thinks we would make fun gays! It's so stupid! It's because of the all the Swaglos who go to my school, who actually DO make fun gays! So now, Mr. Annoying thinks EVERYONE makes fun of gays. God, I hate society and how we can't have nice things without.

    On a side note, I can't say 'black' or else everyone thinks I'm racist. "Can you pass me a black colored pencil?" "OMG THAT'S SSSSOOO RACIST!!!" God, I hate people so much...

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, Spy Crab: The New Exercise Craze!   
    Introducing:

    SPY CRAB
    The latest and greatest system at losing weight! If you're not aware what a spy crab is, it's an animation glitch from Team Fortress for the Spy class, caused when the player plays as Spy, opens the disguise kit, crouches, and looks straight up at the sky, and walks around. The result makes the spy look like a crab. Check it out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3dyQlZziHnw. So, me, being the great and powerful Iggy, decided; "How about I try this at school?" And so I did. I spy crabbed from class to classes whenever I could. I consider it exercise because it hurts after a while, like real exercise! Well, as it turns out, the next day when I woke up, my legs were still hurting.

    LESSON OF THE DAY: Don't be me!

    Smmbod got a reaction from lagacoura for a blog entry, I'm On Youtube!!! YAY!   
    Hey everyone, guess who it is? If you didn't guess or guessed wrong, its me, Smm. YAY!
    Guess what? I was bored, and was looking for something to do. Then I remembered my Youtube channel with no videos on it. I then remembered how I talk to myself about what I am doing when I play any game. THEN I found a headset in my closet! ITS MOTOROLA! Then I got fraps. Combine them together and you have a gaming Youtube Channel! YAY! So I filmed like 20 videos of me playing minecraft. Winning. I talked (or as the big pros say it) Commentated the whole thing. So I was happy. So I thought I would share my wisdom with you, my friends of JR. Click da link below and be transported to a magical place of Smmbodness:

    Le Link to Le channel http://www.youtube.c...dX?feature=mhee

    Its called SmmbodX. Why the X? Well when I was 7 I made a channel by the name of Smmbod. Never used it. Forgot the password.

    So I will add a new video everyday. Mostly minecraft, but I also have filmed some Skyrim, Portal 2 (co-op with iggy...) Torchlight, League of Legends, DC universe, Team Fortress 2, Forsaken World and Allods. PANDARIA BETA( maybe...)! I AM DIVERSE! HURRAY! Yeah. So one video every day. So check it out plz. Subscribe PLZ if you like it. IF you really like it, tell me in the comments. IF you hated it, tell me what you hated about it and I will change it. Peace. My new word: SHAZIZMO!

    Live Long and Prosper, Stay in school, eat your vegetables and I will see you next time! Smmbod out!

    Smmbod reacted to Carter for a blog entry, Funny Little Thing   
    So this morning I had been mulling over what I was going to post in my blog since I was in a blogging mood. I had this rant about this and that and all these things. That has changed. I got home and decided on going for a bike ride, being the nice day it was, rode about, down the road... good 5 miles or so and I get back from that, took a shower, got out feeling great came down and opened my lap top and decided to play Borderlands 2 (as I am addicted to that game) and I turn on my iPod and notice that I had a missed call from Jamie so I open it and notice it had all the staff members. I was confused and I knew i couldn't attend as I had to go out to the other building on our property (parents were watching football game there and wanted me to come and watch with them.) So I go out there *note it has internet just really bad internet* and I look again and scroll through and notice what people were saying.

    You should know what I read.
    It was like a hit to the gut... I just sat there, dumbfounded, I couldn't believe what I had just read.

    At this point I just felt.. shocked thinking they were kidding or it was temporary. No it.. is for good. So now... well I know what is needed of me.

    I realize I've continuously said I was going to get back into Minecraft and I've never done it. But I realize the admins and founders will need every ounce of help they can get and that's a responsibility I have to get as a moderator. So I'm sorry for my lack of being on but expect to see me more often helping out Barbermiss, Rstoy, Flaw, Peter, K3v and all the others. Please try and refer to Helpers first, than Moderators and Admins final. We're all here for a reason. Everything that applied when Jamie was here will still apply so please continue following them!

    Remember! Have fun!

    P.s.- Remember, try not to put too much pressure on the admins! We want to keep them happy and unstressed as possible!

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, Blowing Up the World!   
    Hey guys! Sup! Hurricane Sandy passed. I'm fine. Anyway, down to business!

    In the new 1.4.2 update, many things were added! While I was bored, I decided to explore some things! And I discovered the greatest thing of all time! Wanna do it too? Here's an easy guide!!!

    1) Create a new world, and make it superflat.

    2) Click 'Customize' and then click 'presents'

    3) Scroll down to 'Redstone Ready' and click that

    4) In the top box that says all those crazy numbers, replace '24' with '46', and get rid of village

    5) Create your world

    6) Spawn some Flint And Steel and have fun lagging your computer to the point where it explodes.

    Well, that's how I did it! I'll tell you guys what happened after I blow up my computer! You can also do this other ways, like clear out the type box and just type 46, but then the TNT falls into the void. So, have fun creating your own wacky TNT/computer blowing up worlds!

    Smmbod reacted to k2trf for a blog entry, Goodbye (hopefully, just for now).   
    October 11th, 2012

    To All:

    This is an extremely bittersweet goodbye. But at the same time, it isn't. Before I go anymore in-depth here, I would like to make this point crystal clear: JR is the friendliest, most helpful, most amazing whole-rounded gaming community I have ever had the honor of not only being able to call myself a member of, but also being able to say I have helped in whatever way(s) I could on a daily basis.

    And that would realistically be the bitter part of the bittersweet. I am drafting this message for the first time at approximately 5:40am, EST on September 26th, 2012. I am literally loosing sleep over this issue I am facing, and while the issue is not JR or any part thereof (including extensions such as (but not limited to) NLTekkit) it is unfortunately a consequence to a resolution I've come to recently dealing with my personal life.

    This semester (between this prior August and this coming December), I am in my third semester attending the University of Kentucky. Originally, I came here with the intention of learning communications and networking. Basically how any two electronic devices talk to each other in big perspectives, like making computers as a whole talk to each other or making communications work on a global scale, an example being Amateur Radio (which I hold a valid FCC license for, commonly dubbed 'Ham Radio'). But I digress, that is more than enough of a back story for this simple yet complex issue.

    The issue is rather simple: UK is not by any means a cheap school. In fact it is a very expensive school. And I'm not exactly learning things that I consider worth my money (that I don't have). My issue here is that I'm going to be in so much debt by the time I manage to get the piece of paper known as a 'college degree' that I doubt it will be worth it, as I would be working off the debt for the rest of my life... O_O

    Because of this, I am not returning to UK next semester. After three semesters' worth of debt, I still have a chance, however small, to dig myself out. So why does this affect my membership at JR? Well that's rather simple.

    What I need: A job, an income, training equivalent to a 'college degree' (actually exceeding it), prior job history, etc. Basically things that will make me very valuable to employers. And with the state the US economy is currently in, it will not be getting any better anytime soon. Which means I need security in all the things in that list above all else. There are also things I clearly lack. Discipline (in the formal sense), fitness (I've gotten lazy since coming to college... having to study in basically all my free time (and still not do very well in classes) = sitting for 98% of my day + still needing to eat = Tim got fatter than he was ), etc.

    There is a clear place where I would excel and receive everything (and more) I need, as well as give me the things I recognize myself as lacking as of late: the military. Any branch of any military on the face of this planet is known for this! And in this environment, it seems like the best thing I could possibly do for myself (especially considering that while I am in the service (active duty and/or reserve) my loans will be on standby, not inuring any interest, which would be tremendously helpful for my situation).

    The issue with this is that (supposing all goes well and I am accepted into the Air Force, which is the branch I'm looking into going into), I will be shipped off to BMT, or Basic Military Training. For about 8 weeks. Then comes 'Tech school', which is essentially college stripped down off all the bull, cost, and liberal arts classes that don't actually contribute to what you are learning. Tech school can last anywhere from another two months to two years, but again, I would be considered active duty during this time, so I would have all the benefits as such.

    Because of this, I do not feel as though I will have time for JR where other people clearly do and could easily fill my shoes. I have come to love JR so much that because of this, I am asking for a demotion from Jamie (he will have received this letter earlier than it will be released to the community as a whole) – I want to see someone who has the time to devote to JR in my place.

    Why am I not just posting about this in the Home & Away Topic and just asking for a temporary demotion? Well to be honest, the military will change me. I doubt I will have any more time for JR when I am in Tech School or graduated thereof than I do at this moment. Because of this, I think it is unfair of me to hold a position where I can help so many, yet never actually have time to do so.

    I do hope to come back to JR one day, as I did less than a year ago when I first came across the community in this same building, however I know the military will change me, and as such, I cannot whole-heatedly promise that I will be able to, or even that I will want to then. And this saddens me. But knowing that I was a part of the Staff Team that makes JR as epic and redundantly awesome as it is today makes me literally weep tears – at the very least I want to thank you all from the bottom of my heart for the most awesome time I've had in a long time; I will miss you all very dearly.

    That being said, I won't be completely disappearing from the community so long as I can muster it – I've already paid up through the semester (December), so I still have to work to get the best grades I can (LOL), and more importantly get back into physical shape. I will still almost definitely be trolling the forums and keeping up with the community, but at some point or another I will unfortunately disappear from the Internet for a few months while I attend BMT in Texas.

    And even then, as I've said, that is not a guarantee as of yet. It is just a dream. But I don't foresee any reason I will have difficulties with this. I do have to tell my parents my decision though, and I'm honestly not sure which scares the crap out of me more... telling them or writing this letter to you all... :'(

    Lastly, I would like to thank all the current and previous members of the Staff Team – you all are what makes the community so epically awesome so that thousands of people can enjoy playing together in an environment that is fun but organized – I would very much like to name individual people and thank them personally for the ride as it has been, however I refuse to do so because it is almost inevitable that I will accidentally leave someone out, and I would absolutely hate to do that.

    If there is anything else I feel I need to say, rest assured that I will do so. But attempting to convince me otherwise of this decision should not be attempted – I have been considering this since just about the time I was made an Admin. This is not something I have taken lightly, and I cry each time I think of how I am telling Jamie and his Staff this so soon after that promotion, however I do so with only good intentions for both myself and JR's continuation – after all an Admin that actually has time for being helpful on a large scale and is not planning on taking an extended leave soon is much more worth having than someone who just seemed to disappear one day because he realistically has no time for being helpful anymore.

    And for that, I am sorry. So deeply sorry. But there is no point in pretending anymore – this will just be better for everyone. And as I've already said, I hope to log back in one day in the not-so-distant future and see the exact same community that I left. And I believe that if I every manage to do so, I will find that everything that made me love JR in the first place is still here, having withstood everything that anyone could ever throw at them.

    I love you all. <3 And I am so sorry. :'(

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, Farm Girls are Lazy   
    Okay, so, let me introduce meh crew. There's Smmbod, bestest friend of mine. Yahoby, bestest pal of mine. Sharkhead17, friend, but not bestest. Shark has a broken computer, so you never see him. Anyway, there was this field trip we had to go to: A farm. So, me, Yahoby, and Shark are doing some stuff. Pulling tarp of a field for reasons I don't know. So, we're pullin this tarp very slow like. Then, from the other end of the field, some girls from our school coming running over to another row of trap, instead helping with our row. They 'attempt' to pull at the tarp, but it doesn't lift, even though it looked pretty easy to pull from the ground. So, they call for help! Who comes in? Pretty much any guy not doing anything comes over to assist. The guys do all the work, while the girls just stand around and 'encourage' them. My friends and I stand there while looks on our faces that say, "What. The. Heck. Is. Wrong. With. Society!?!

    I know I promised another one, but I'll do that one later. You know what? No more of that Next time stuff. I can't make promises easily :\

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, Good Intentions Sit on the Wall   
    Remember when I said I was going to post about how school is this year? I lied. You see, people do that. They lie. But not ALL the time. I'll tell you about that soon, but later. That's the theme for this story; people can lie, but that doesn't mean they always do. So, here's the story:

    It's third grade. My teacher was sick, so we had a substitute. If we stayed inside for the recess, we could make the real teacher some get well soon cards. So, after lunch, me, one of my classmates, Dakota, and I walk down to our classroom; one problem, the teacher is a no show! I later learned we had to wait in the lunch for the teacher to come get us, but what can I say? It was third grade, we're not smart. So, teacher's not there, we go back to the lunch room, so we can head out for recess. We walk out the door, onto the playground, only to be stopped a teacher. Now, this was one of those jerk teachers no one liked. I think the only reason she stopped us, was because I was with Dakota, who was a trouble maker of a student. So, she stops us, and asks, "Why are you guys late for recess." Dakota (Who was good at talking to adults) says, "Our teacher was sick, so we went down to her room to make some get well soon cards. But the sub wasn't there, so we came back here." If I were alone, and was stopped, that would have worked. But no, BECAUSE teachers are really stereotypical people, if a problem student acts suspicious in ANY WAY, they're in trouble. So, I don't completely remember what she said, because it was a long time ago, but it was something like this, "No, you went down to your teacher's room, goofed off in there while your teacher wasn't in, then came back her to enjoy recess! You two are are to stand next to the wall for all of recess to think about what you've done." It was this very moment, that made me DESPISE this teacher for being so thick and stupid as to not believe the world of a 3rd grader. Not even CONSIDER it was the truth. Anyway, 'The Wall' was this stupid punishment idea where'd you have to stand next to it, and stand there for as long as you've been told. I think the reason they did this was so that they could easily monitor you and the rest of the playground, and so you could sit there and watch while everyone else had fun. Talk about child abuse right there. I was lucky to have worn my head that day, because I put it over my face, and cried my brains out at this. What kind of heartless soul does this? None other than 3rd grade teachers! Of course, Dakota sat there like it was nothing, because, she was used to this kind of treatment. But not me, no, I was a goody two shoes. I never broke rules, never got less than a B- (Or 3, because they used a different grading system in Elementary. 4 was A, 3 was B, C was 2, D was 1, and F was 0. I think this was so kids didn't cry at grades or something.) So, this sitting on the wall thing, was kind of unreal. So, imagine this: A 3rd grader, leaning on a wall, hood over their face, making crying sounds, forced to sit there while everyone else had fun and never cared for that kid. It's heart breaking! If I saw that, I'd run over, punch that teacher in the face, tell the kid to have fun, and sue the school for creating such an awful treatment to kids! ALL I WANTED TO DO WAS MAKE A 'Get Well Soon!' CARD! IT WOULD HAVE BEEN ADORABLE WITH IT'S BAD GRAMMAR AND SLOPPY HAND WRITING!!!!

    And that's why, whenever you hear someone say, "Stay in school kids!" Don't believe that. They were paid to say that.

    How does someone without a speaking conscious, NOT do bad things?

    I decided to make a separate blog for my life, because it's started to be interesting! These will be REAL events! Not made up! This blog is ONLY for what goes on in life, and not in Minecraft! So, let's begin!

    Teacher Trolling
    So, this year in school is kind of depressing. I'm not having fun, thinking of home school, all that stuff, because it sucks. So, how to make it bearable? Troll the teacher legally! So, one of my classes is music. You sit there, be quiet, play on a synthesizer for 45 minutes (playing songs the teacher assigned) and have to pass a certain level of songs in order to get a passing grade. Stupid, right? So, being the kind person am I, accidently started trolling the teacher. So, to get to the building to the music room, you have to exit outside, but no many students move buildings at that time. Now, if the door closes, it locks. Then you have to press a buzzer, and the office attended gets upset, etc. So, I started holding open the door for EVERYONE coming into the building. It's the right thing to do! But, I was late for class doing that. So one day, me and my friend were holding the doors open (there's more than one) walk into class, and guess who teleports behind us like an enderman after a diamond block? The stickler teacher, Mrs. MeanyFaceMusicTeacher of course! Yay! So, she's all like, "Why you guys late?" And we're all like, "We were holding open the doors into the building." Now, her face, priceless! We were doing a good thing, and she had no way to punish us for it! So, what does she do? She says this:,"How were you holding it open?" "For everyone." "You can't do it like that! You hold open for the person behind you, and continue to class." So, next do, guess what we DON'T do? What she says. So, next do, all up in our grill, she's like, "Why you late?" "Holding open the door." "Didn't I tell you not to do that?" "Well, you see, if I hold open the door for the person behind me, the person behind me won't hold open the door for the person behind them. So, it's easier to hold it open for everyone!" Well, guess what Mrs. I'mToSelfishToCareAboutOthers says? "You're only responsible for yourself." BOOM! Dafuq? Someone never learned to care for others! So, near the end, funniest thing happens. "Would you like to talk to the principal about it?" Guess what our hero Iggy says? "Yes." BOOM! Headshot! Burned! You just got caught mining bedrock with your fist Mrs. NotSoSmartTeacherLady! It ends with me free for the day, and my friend with a detention. He gave a different excuse for being late because he doesn't want to get in trouble. Telling the truth IS the a good idea! Who'd a thought? So, the battle still wages to this day, but hopefully I get to talk to the principal so I can miss class, and watch the teacher's face red and embarrassed. I mean, who punishes someone for holding open the door? I mean, really? So, I'm basically trolling! I'm annoying her, but there's nothing she can do! I know she hates me now, because she KNOWS I'm smarter than her! I can't wait for our next confrontation! No matter what, I'm going to win one way or another! THIS I SWEAR!

    EDIT: I lost, dammit. The principal will let me hold open the door, as long as I'm not late for music. So, I lost. Oops. Oh well, I still have OTHER great stories to tell! Wow! Amazing! ERMERGD! HACKS!

    NEXT TIME, IN THE LIFE OF IGGY:

    This is an awful shool year this year. Why? And how do I make it better?

    FIND OUT NEXT TIME, IN THE LIFE OF IGGY!

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, You must know this information!   
    Okay! Let's get one thing straight right here, right now! I was demoted to moderator, yes. This is true. Not sure how, but I wasn't helpful to others, which I guess is half true, but, seems a bit... sketchy. Before I left for Holland a while ago, I was always willing to help and be nice. But after my (Awful) vacation, I didn't feel the same. I didn't want to help, didn't want to build, didn't even want to play Minecraft. So, blame my parents for that part! Forcing me to go somewhere I didn't want to! >_> Anyway, I'm not going to be one of those people who say:

    'Well, I won't have enough time for JRCraft, I find this unfair, I'm going to be annoying' etc etc etc. So, what will Iggy do? Well, let me put it this way:

    Look, I'm a staff member, that means I solve problems. Not practical problems like 'how to craft wood', because that would fall under the problems of the Minecraft wiki. I solve serious problems. For instance, how do I stop some big mean hacking griefer from destroying every house in the world? The answer, is a ban hammer. And if that don't work, use MORE ban hammer. Like, this big ol' hammer built by me, used by me, and you best hope, not used on you.

    Anyway, I hope no one thinks lesser of me because my name isn't red and begins with {A}, but nevertheless, it happened. Deal with it. However, I can get my position back IF I'm more helpful, which I don't find I can do because, well, I (personal opinion here) think that I'm at least useful. So, letting you know here, and everything. By the way, you should have seen my face when the little message came up in my inbox called 'Demotion'. It was kind of funny.

    Smmbod reacted to Carter for a blog entry, Well originally...   
    This was supposed to be a blog about coming back to JR and why I've been gone.

    But looks like y'all gotta wait a week. Ive been grounded from my computer for a week because of me forgetting to get water to a chicken, which he should expect by now, I am forgetful as hell. I barely remember to put them out and in during the morning and night. Honestly this wouldn't bother me (well besides ban from computer) but it did today because of what he said about me doing it.

    "I was trying to force you to share an interest with me..."

    Am I the only one who'd be annoyed by that statement as a teenager from his parent? I'm sorry but I do. I didn't say anything about this, being good with some willpower, but that just irritates me. I've tried sharing interests with him, but I just can't enjoy them.
    Watching football games, woodworking, dog agility(I did enjoy it but he just started getting on my back about it all the time) and golf. And golf is only when my brother-in-law comes up. Never once has he shared an interest with me. Never. Never tried one of my things.

    So this is my message ab

    I've been on JR for exactly ONE YEAR. Can you believe it? A WHOLE YEAR! How awesome! This is short, because I ran out of things to say, but I thought it'd let everyone know!

    Smmbod reacted to IgbarX for a blog entry, Nearly a year?   
    Hey everyone! Did you know, that um... I'VE BEEN ON JR FOR NEARLY A YEAR? Time sure flies, eh? Well, in one year I have accomplished administrative access, and love this title! Now, I don't expect any gifts... (JK! GIVE ME YO DIAMONDS FOOLS! OR FACE THE WRATH OF MY SPAM ATTACK OF LIGHTNING!!) but, I do need 1 favor: I need a reason to be on JRCraft again. I've sadly lost interest in playing on the server, and need some inspiration! Anyone have ideas? I don't like playing TF2 all the time to ditch my admin jobs. But I can't help it, the server has lost my interest. So please, someone, got any bright ideas?

    Oh! Almost forgot, I joined September 20th 2011. I'll try to be on that day to get all my congrats! ALL OF THEM!

    Smmbod got a reaction from IgbarX for a blog entry, Randomness and Facts About ME!   
    Helloes! Guess who it is? If you guessed wrong or didn't guess at all, it's me, Smm! (AKA Ben AKA Potato Kind AKA Rarity) Hoorah!
    So I haven't done a blog since July. I'll bet you missed me. I'd probably lose that bet, but what's life without risks? I don't know... but anyway, I had to find SOMETHING to talk about, so I have decided to list random events that have occured as well as some information into the background of the life of Smmbod.

    So first, the stuff of interest. Yesterday was my 14th Birthday! Yay! I got lot's of stuff that I may or may not have deserved, including and mostly limited to:
    Astro V2 Gaming Headset (It's silver )
    Guild Wars 2 (Epic game )
    Various Amazon gift cards (From my generous but un-original relatives)
    Assorted stuff from the Mann Co. Store (Thank you Saxton Hale )
    A boat. (Not just for me, my parents just decided to buy it on my birthday)
    15 eggs (From my chickens. That's the most EVER in one day! They clearly knew it was my birthday )

    So that's pretty much it. I'm satisfied. It doesn't help that I have a twin sister... the guilt always comes when I find out how much they spent in total...

    SECOND EVENT! Schools started on the 29th. Actually pretty exciting. Finally the oldest in middle school. Bow down to me little 7th/6th graders! You and your potatoes are MINE! Nah. I love them, I share MY potatoes with them. So... not much is different. Different teachers, sure. Although finally learning algebra... yay. Also doing an online learning program called VMS (Virtual Middle School) which is fun. Yay technology and learning! Best combo. So school is fun. In a school kind of way.

    THIRD EVENT! Pretty awesome. I posted it as a status a while ago. My family recently got a new puppy. He's a Beagle/Pug/Chihuahua (Also known as a Chuggle ) (10 weeks old). Yesterday (MY BIRTHDAY!) We named him. Cooper. That's his name. I was going to post a blog about him and pictures and stuff so you could all name him, but I never got any good pictures of him. So Cooper. I call him Coopity Doo for no reason. My cat, Macy, does not like him. But... I think they'll bond nicely one day. Maybe go share a potato salad together.

    So that's all the interesting things. That's all. Not much.

    So... info about me! So I first have to explain my name: S.M.M.B.O.D. if you've seen my forum posts, you'll know that it stands for Super Mighty Mega Ben of Doom. Why is that my name? Why is that acronym so looooong? Here's why. I loved to draw when I was little. Mostly fantasy stuff that I imagined me doing. My first creation was of the adventures of The Mighty Ben. A space ranger who shoots spicy chicken wings out of his megaman like hand cannon. He mostly killed space slugs and other assorted baddies. So I wanted to make Mighty Ben even awesomer. I extended the name. Super Mighty Mega Ben. He did the same stuff, but his name now had super AND mighty. His greatest enemy was an evil clone of himself known as Super Mighty Mega Ben of Doom. Notice the doom. So in the near future, I added SMM on to everything. I first used the name Smmbod on my webkinz account . I loved the word SMMBOD, and everyone thought it was like Somebody (Smmbody?)

    So now other info about me. I am Smmbod, but my real name is Ben. That's B-E-N. I am now 14 and live in the U.S.A. Woo. My interests include Minecraft, Chickens, Farming, Swimming, and Potatoes. That's an interest right? Minecraft is self-explanatory, but some people don't seem to understand chickens and farming.

    My family got 8 chickens about 3 years ago. There really was no reason, not out of necessity or anything. We have a large yard and the town I live in is a very small farming community, but we never farmed much. So we got chickens. There was a group called 4-H in our town, and they seemed to fit what we were interested in. As avid gardeners, we joined them, started a community garden, and every year since 2010 we have given lots of *cough* yummy *cough* vegetables to the local food drives and shelters. They also gave us a great way to show our chickens just for fun at fairs. Lot's of winning.

    So swimming? Why that? I don't compete or take classes or anything, but I learned to swim easily and loved it, so I swim laps on my own time to exercise. Yay water!

    I like potatoes, but that's explained in a previous blog. Long story short: they are good.

    So... because I can't think of anything, I am going to say something witty... something witty. Wasn't that funny? Woo!

    So bye everyone! Thanks for reading a little bit into the life of me! Bye bye now!

    Smmbod reacted to k3v_o - Bringer of Dark Me for a blog entry, no money, mo problems   
    Hey Guys,

    I promised ye blog updates regularly, and nopony breaks a pinkie promise.






    So, as some of ye know from the title, the issue I currently have is money, and college requires quite a large amount. Money that I currently do not possess nor my parents. Most things are fine, the registration fee of €2,250 is covered by the grant I will be receiving and since I will be living at home the additional grant money of €2,500 which is spread over the first 2 semesters can go towards things that I want and/or need. The main thing I need is a laptop. Now, the thing about me is I don't see a point in buying new things unless they are in fact an upgrade from what I currently have and the fact that it NEEDS to last at least the duration of the course. I was looking at a large amount of laptops (not far off everything available in Ireland) and couldn't find anything that could satisfy what it would be used for currently, not to mind 3-4 years from now when I complete the course. Now, yes, there were good laptops there, The fact that my current PC is a Gaming PC easily capable on managing current gen games on med to high quality, I am not going to spend €700-€800 euro on a laptop that will basically be garbage 6 months down the line if not already. Therefore, I looked into custom laptops by origin (my eyes still burn). Here is the Specs that I picked out and the price that followed.

    Eon15-s

    Intel Core i7 3820QM Quad-Core Processor (2.70GHz), 8MB Cache
    Single 2GB GDDR5 AMD Radeon HD 7970M (2GB of Total GFX)
    16GB Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz (4 X 4GB)
    80GB Intel 310 Series - Solid State mSATA Drive (on which the operating system will be installed (Jamie's idea of course))
    750GB SATA 3.0Gb/s, 7200RPM, 16MB Cache HDD
    Integrated High-Definition Audio with THX TruStudio Pro and up to 7.1 Channel support (the lowest, cheapest one)

    Everything else I left on its original setting as there was nothing else major, things such as wifi, 2.0 megapixel webcam and other stuff that is installed anyway on most laptops including this one. The thing I don't get, is that it has a fingerprint scanner (I'm not the friggin CIA, but I still cant remove it to save money ).

    all and all, the price was $2,582/€2,055 without additions such as 3 year warranty and part replacement for $200 ish (which is needed for a laptop at this price) and the, what was it, $108 delivery charge!!!! I live in Ireland, not mars! Are you not charging enough?

    I was considering about how will I purchase this laptop, most likely would have to take out a loan as I simply need a good computer that would last at least 4 years, can play high end games for most of that and the fact that the Course is Computing with Games Development, there would be a large amount of multitasking with Games Design, Computer Graphics, Animation, Web Design, Digital Video Production, among others.

    I pondered for a moment........













    I have now decided that the best thing to do is build a better Gaming PC xD which all in all is a little over half the price with better specs all across the board xD (just without the fingerprint scanner (although not needed is pritty cool )) I will also buy a decent laptop for the basic grunt work (microsoft office and stuff like that (and Minecraft of course)) that I can get done between classes at college while the Heavy work and gaming can get done at home on my soon to be epicer PC.

    Here are the parts that I may be getting...

    Asus Intel Ultimate Bundle - a large possibility that I may upgrade to 32GB of RAM within a year (if not 64GB which the motherboard can take xD squeeeee)

    Asus ATI Radeon 7970 HD 1010Mhz 3GB PCI-e 3.0

    Coolmaster Full Tower Case





    The best thing is I can pay for these parts as I have the money, and better parts could be out by then for the same price. Since the major stuff really only starts in the 2nd semester (after January), I can get a Laptop for about, ehhh €500 ish and that will do the trick for the early assignments and other work with office over the 3-4 years. Also, if I want to upgrade whenever, I don't have to throw out the whole PC




    ___________________________________________________________________________________________


    Not much happened other than me PC hunting other than my friends dog died I know, it was my friends, but bane (that's what the dog was named) was awesome and was just a puppy. Wasn't even my friends fault that bane died. An old couple sprayed rat poison and never put a sign up to warn people who often walk with their dogs along that way. 4 other dogs died because of it....

    Last thing before I leave ye, Have ye heard about Metal Gear Solid: Ground Zeros? If not watch the video below in spoiler! It looks better in 320p in this video than blue-ray movies :L









    ______________________________________________________________________________________________




    Anyway, Thanks for reading guys. I'll be sure to update whenever I can xD
