god i hate dart boards [Nov. 16th, 2000|10:17 pm]
Brad Fitzpatrick
[Current Mood |irritatedirritated]

the biggest thing I hated living at home: listening to my family play darts on the electronic dart board.

the biggest thing I hate living here: listening to my roommate play darts on the electronic dart board.

i hate electronic dart boards... i will list the reasons:
  • they have that dumb clunk sound when you hit the board, unlink the nearly quiet sound of a real dart entering a cork board.
  • that stupid voice that talks to you
  • it does the math for you. it's more of a brain workout to add and multiply numbers yourself, and adds some quality to the game
Our dart board was broken earlier this year, and I thought it was more fun to play then.

I like my room because it's so quiet, but even with the washing machine and dryer going (which I find relaxing), you can't block out the sound of the dart board and its gay sounds. But whatever.

I feel you on this one. There's always a small army of jackasses watching some spectacle on TV just outside my door (which being 75 glass keeps no noise out).

The price I pay for cheap rent I guess....

Re:

Yeah, I totally feel for you.

Idea: you move downstairs (we'll partition off a room for you), and we put the dart-board in your room. :-)

You're joking I know, but check this plan:

1. Move everything out of my room.
2. Move washer/dryer into my room (don't worry bout the plumbin' we'll figure something out. ;-)
3. Put in a door where the doorway is into the main room downstairs (parallel to Scott's).
4. That place is now my room.
5. We share that bathroom. The bathroom I'm using now is now communal.
6. We throw the dart board away.

We should do it over Thanksgiving when everyone's away. ;-)

BLAMO!!

You should keep a fully automatic rifle. My preference would be an AR-15, the cops use it so you'd have no problem gettin' one.

Anyone causes you problems you just....

Re: BLAMO!!

$200 tax stamp and a clean background, and it's all yours (plus the cost of the rifle). :)
