Remember in January, when Mel got married to that guy? Well, I took some footage of some wedding stuff and made this. It's pretty amature, but at least it's on the internet now, right?

Another Brandy Glass Adventure

Well, it wasn't really an adventure, but I some good times were had.

Do you remember the giant plastic brandy glass we found at DI? If you forgot or don't know or just need a reminder, look at the post before this.
I was dared by a friend to sneak it into a movie theater. What she didn't know at the time is that my roommate works at the movie theater and gets us in for free. When you get into a movie for free you also get popcorn for free. However, in order to get free popcorn (or beverage) you have to bring your own bowls. This is perfect since we now own several popcorn bowls that hold more popcorn than the extra large bowls they sell you. And, in the case of last night, i just happened to have a perfect brandy-glass-sized bowl.

Dare: Accomplished

I wish I had a picture, but we got there late. Taking a picture would have been rude. I could have taken one after but the glass was empty and a picture wouldn't have proved much. Next time.

The Human Bladder

The human bladder, when completely full, is capable of holding 1 liter of fluid.

While me and my best buddy, Fez, were at what is possibly my favorite store invented by humans, DI, we made a fantastic discovery. In the plastic section of the kitchen items were two over-sized brandy glasses. I only know they are brandy glasses because the sticker on the bottom says so. Now, I imagine these glasses were intended to be some sort of party serving dish, or a nifty household decoration or maybe even a fishbowl for one of those colorful Betta fish. We decided to use them for what they looked like they are for: drinking a lot of beverage out of.

The Challenge: See who would take the longest to drink 4 liters of fluid out of their glass. That's just over a gallon for you who are not familiar with the metric system. The beverage choices were made by the drinkers. I chose to fill mine with a cranberry-apple juice and Fez went with the white-grape-peach juice.

It's harder than you think to make this sort of selection. Just a few of the things you need to consider are:

  • How much money do I really want to spend on an activity like this? (my answer was $5.65)
  • What possible beverage would I be willing to potentially be sick of for the rest of my life?
  • What selection do I think I could choke down a gallon of?

So far I think I made the right choice.

The drinking began at 6:23 PM tonight. My first 20 minutes killed about the top 2-3 inches of my juice level. The next 20 minutes took down another half inch. The following 20 minutes took even less. I haven't made any progress for the last almost hour. I'm waiting on my first liter to not be in my body anymore.

I'm kinda determined to have this thing down before I go to bed tonight. I'm not a hundred per cent sure that will happen, know, it might.

optical illusion

I think there should be some sort of restraining order at the gym. Guys who are tall and big with huge muscles should be required to stay away from us tiny short guys with "just ok" muscles. I normally don't look tiny. I'm in ok shape. I definitely could be worse. All things considered, I appear to be a fairly decent looking guy (I think so anyway). But when I'm at the gym straining to lift my 25 pound weights and one of you huge guys sits on the bench next to me with 50 pound weights and do the same thing I'm doing, except you do it effortlessly. my self esteem crashes. My fragile ego can't afford such a blow. So please, Please keep your distance.

more stick pull night

here we see Shaun's cute little girlfriend challenging the awesome Kendra to a stick fight. Ok we made her do it, but she was a good sport. This little girl is a lot of good things but she is not big and she is not strong. At least she didn't scream.

stick pull night

Ok, this is kind of an old video but i need to clear up some space on my phone. What you are seeing is my awesome friend kendra defeating my former roommate joshua is the old-fashioned, yet never old, game of stick pull. I really hope as you play this you can hear his scream. It's a good one.
