    Wink On a lighter note

    Today at work the lady I sit next to was having some sort of trouble with her PC. And she says (and I quote);

    "Dammit I wish I had the codes!"

    Suffice to say I had to bite my tongue hard not to lose my crap laughing or reply with something smartass like "I've got the codes!" or "Go speak to Kim. I hear he has the codes.", cause I really can't explain it to these plebs. Why can't everyone just be a Gears fan?

    Anyone else have some funny IRL experiences with Gears references or anecdotes? Or just some funny Gears stuff in general. Lets have a larf.

    A while back I had to bite my tongue as well to not make a Brumak joke. Don't remember the context anymore though

    Con-text? This concept is foreign to me. You will have to explain it.

    I know I should have said it. But it was my first day and I would prefer to go a whole 48 hours of employment there before they learn my deep dark secret. No one must know of my addiction.

    I can't even see the name Clayton now without thinking about bacon. Mmmmm.... bacon. I tried a support group but they just told me to stop being a noob and get serious(ly 3.0).

    I also can't hear the word 'Boom' without going BOOM HUR HUR HUR like a Boomer. Its just too fun.

    God help me if someone starts up a 'Wooo!'. Because then I 'Wooo!'. And they 'Wooo!' again. And it self perpetuates. Sooner or later there will be the perfect storm of 'Wooo!'s and we will have an entire continent (or maybe even the world since it wouldn't surprise me if it can cross the ocean, Dolphins are pretty smart) yelling 'Wooo!'. But maybe thats the key to world peace. We gave peace a chance. Lets give 'Wooo!' a chance.

    Dammit guys and gals its bed time since I've got work tomorrow. No rest for the wicked. Leave me some cool stories to read tomorrow! Stay classy Gears.

    Sometimes I call my best friend Cole, who doesn't play Gears "Cole Train". So whenever I see him at school, I always yell, "The Cole Train runs on Whole Grain, baby! Whoo!", and he's all confused.

    My friend named his Car The Cole train. XD Back in school we found a note book from another class in science and the name of the person was Marcus, we laughed (not at the name, at the fact that we found a Marcus, awesome name).

    Short for Plebeian. Old Latin term for the uneducated underclass. There may be a more specific definition but it is more or less synonymous with calling someone uncultured or uneducated swine, or just stupid. Its just a classier way to say it.

    THE MORE YOU KNOW

    Thanks peeps. I had a good laugh at these. Maybe the community should think of a secret greeting or handshake so we can identify each other in public. Or would just a 'Wooo!' suffice?

    Lol. Fair point.

    But for some reason I am now picturing some people sitting behind a fold-up table at a mall somewhere with a sign labeled "FREE GEARS TESTING! You might already be infected! Find out today!".

    "Ok ma'am. Thank you for your participation. For this first part I will need to to wall bounce from here to the Subway in the food court. Pick up any foot long sub with whole grain. Then roadie run back."

    "Is it so the Cole Train can keep running sir?"

    "I'm sorry ma'am. But you just tested positive for Gears because of that. Your gamertag will be registered in the global database, and if you do not have one one will be supplied for you. I'm afraid that it is genetic so your offspring have a high likelihood of forming it as well. If you start to notice symptoms please contact us IMMEDIATELY. We need more players."

    I just remembered one. Being in Australia, and with my irreverent sense of humor I assimilated from them, there are a lot of 'ya mum' jokes that get thrown around. Once it starts to escalate to the point of absurdity I love to throw in the"Your mom's a classy lady!". Granted its not entirely Gears since it was from a Penny Arcade strip about Gears 2, but I think it counts.

    And its bizarre just how many scenarios from PA strips that happen to me in real life.

    Big manual pencil sharpeners are more fun when you yell out "grind!". You can't do that with automatics because they don't have those little handles, but they do tend to overheat.
