    Yep...I used to work for a mapping company and spent all day staring at maps and linking corners of houses together. After a while I could go out and see everything the way it would look on a map. It's not one of my more exciting skills...not like the fact that I can make myself look like an old lady with a wig on in 15 seconds. That's exciting.:|

    I used to play Monkey Islands and all the classic Lucasarts adventure games like 12hours straight. Then whenever I went to do something else I saw like a knife on the kitchen table and thought like "can I pick it up? could be useful laters" and stuff like "YESSSS I GOT THE FREEZER OPEN NOW I CAN PROCEED WITH MY QUEST". Shit was pretty fucked up.

    the bad thing is monkey island 1 & 2 are so old they wont run on todays PC's so you gotta have an emulator of some sorts and last time i tried to play them i didnt get the sounds working so it kinda sucked
