This weekend I played "Pirates Vikings and Knights 2" for Half-Life 2. Although it's still in beta, it looks promising! And you don't get to see many games with ludicrous themes such as this one. The only aspect where I found it lacking was the absence of ninjas... I mean, pirates, but no ninjas?
Also, this weekend I made yet another fatal mistake. I trimmed down my beard, for a girl. The girl was nowhere to be seen. And if I hadn't trimmed down my beard for a couple of weeks more, I could have braided it (yeah, I have wanted to do that ever since I started listening to viking and folk metal). Now, there's no girl and no braids in my beard, at least for a long, long time.
The moral is: don't trim down your beard unless you've got a sure-fire way to trade that for sex or money (money being more important, because you can trade it for sex and other services and goods), unless, of course, you're into that sort of thing. That piece of advice also applies to ladies who live in a world of strange fetishes and freak genetic mishaps.
