Ever since I started carrying duct tape around I've been keeping an eye out for the various types of duct tape. First you have the typical chapalang brand duct tape roll which you can buy in any hardware shop.

These costs about RM3 per roll, and they get the job done if all you need is something tough to stick stuff together or make some repairs. Then there's the errr... good stuff. The premium branded duct tape.

These are made by the brand name companies like 3M and Duck. These cost about RM11 a roll, what's the difference between this and the cheap stuff? The tape feels tougher, the glue density is higher, and they don't have that weird smell which the cheap tape has.

So there's the good stuff and then there's the PREMIUM STUFF!!! Which is exactly what I found over at an ACE Hardware store.

This is 3M's Transparent Duct Tape, it's not fully transparent cause the tape threads are visible. But.. according to the packaging on the tape it's "Less visible than other heavy duty tapes" Well considering that duct tape is usually non transparent. Even a transparency of 5% is less visible than other heavy duty tapes. Oh.. it's also supposed to be more tougher than other ordinary tapes. The price you pay for this premium tape? RM41, the price I paid due to a price labeling mistake? RM30.

Then I also saw this weird stuff hanging on the rack.

A SCREAMING NEON PINK colored, pre flatten roll of duct tape. The surface itself feels different, while other tapes feel plasticky, this one feels like cloth. This product is called EXTREME Duct Tape, guess the product name and color doesn't help with customer acceptance since they were practically throwing these away at RM1.95.

So there I was, ready to begin the one on one with what many in the LowYat.Net Xbox forums called the most skilled Guile player. The prefight jabs were already thrown and the match was about to begin when... I got disconnected from the match. I was about to accept the invite back to the match when I looked at WZ who was sitting beside me watching me play.

I noticed that there was a bulge at the bottom of his pants, weird because we were toilet trainning him so he wasn't wearing any diapers (he's on the if he pees his pants daddy spanks him trainning regime :P) then I realized what that bulge was!

Before I could even reach him to sweep him off his feet, WZ stood up and from out his pant leg fell... a chunky steaming hot log of a poop. As I picked WZ up I could see the 360 notification dialog informing me of the match invite. But alas... that match will have to be decided some other time.

That was definitely an experience that only fathers who game can have, leaving a match with the child as the excuse.

The father is also the only one who will remember that his son pooped on his gaming spot in front of the TV.

In conjunction with the launch of SF4, some people got together to organize one of the largest Street Fighter 4 Tournaments in Malaysia at Cineleisure during the weekend.

Personally I'd think they could have just called it "The Largest Street Fighter IV Playstation 3 Tournament" and gotten away with it. In keeping with the theme the main MC was dressed up as Ryu.

Then there was a Sakura as well.

And there was a Chun Li in the opertaions committee too. But her job seems to be "Give prizes to people who answered questions properly during quiz time"

DSC07043

Quote of the day came from Ryu who said "You can take Chun Li home.... with her consent, but Sakura? She's Miiiiinnnneeeee!"

Even though I play SF4 but I choose not to join the competition for a few reasons. First of all was that they were playing on a PS3, and ever since I got SF4, I have never REALLY played on the 360 pad, let alone a PS3 pad. So I would be on a disadvantage without my PornStick. You were allowed to bring your own sticks. And seems like a few people took up the offer.

QUITE a few people...

DSC07065

Imagine walking into a shopping mall and seeing a few people doing this...

DSC07053

That's how you know there's an Street Fighter competition happening.

And that's the 2nd reason I didn't join the competition, while I may not be totally lost at SF4. I'd probably be raped by people who INTEND to enter competitions. And I'm already being raped when I face off people on Live, no sense getting raped in public.

The 3rd reason is that the entrance fee to the tournament was RM25! This is inclusive of a goodie bag which contains a number of freebies. But all the freebies in the world couldn't account for one thing that the price of admission included... 2 tickets to watch Street Fighter : The Legend Of Chun Li. And that's the MAIN reason why I decided not to join the tournament, there was NO WAY IN HELL that I was doing ANYTHING to tell Hollywood that I support the creation of crappy game to movie adaptions!

On a side note....

There comes a time when an app's version number moves from 0.X to 1.X and then a tiny little celebration goes off in the developer's head as the person rejoices on the release.

Then the Internet sees the app and starts asking for new features, and complaining about other features.

Then the developer goes to sleep, crying into a pillow.

Aaaa.. this just bring back memories as I was surfing the net for the past week. Internet has been utterly HORRIBLE for most of the week. Sites were either slow or unresponsive. Sure brings back memories of the age of dialup!

And no reports about undersea cables being sliced or anything like that..
