Having said that…

Follow-up to That's one problem solved from The randomness of tomorrow, today!

The first time I played GTA IV online, there was only one other person there. This, I suspect, was the problem; they were solely concerned with killing me.

I played a few games yesterday afternoon, and actually managed to win two and hold my own on another. I believe this was related to the fact that there were around 4 people this time, so they were distracted with killing the others and I was able to prepare myself and get a few good shots in.

This does, unfortunately, mean that the expiration of my 1 month Gold trial is now a problem again. Damn you Microsoft, and your evil money-grabbing ways!

    I’m reading quite an interesting book at the moment and it talks about being “in the victim cycle”. I’m not suggesting that you’re in the victim cycle because I realise that it’s only a game you’re playing but I do think that it’s important to recognise when you are in it.The book recommends that you acknowledge and accept reality as the first step toward accepting accountability. On a lighter note it lists some actual descriptions people wrote on accident report forms that were published by the Arizona Safety Association:-

    1 “Coming home, I drove into the wrong house and collided with a tree I don’t have.”

    2 “A pedestrian hit me and went under my car.”

    3 “The guy was all over the road. I had to swerve a number of times before I hit him.”

    4 I had been shopping for plants all day and was on my way home. As I reached the intersection, a hedge sprang up, obscuring my vision. I did not see the car.”

    5 As I approached the intersection, a sign suddenly appeared in a place where no stop sign had ever appeared before.”

    6 “An invisible car came out of nowhere, struck my vehicle and vanished.”

    7 “The pedestrian had no idea which direction to run, so I ran over him.”

    8 The indirect cause of this accident was a little guy in a small car with a big mouth.”

    9 “The telephone pole was approaching. I was attempting to swerve out of the way when it struck my front end.”
