Some people can’t dance

With this post I will partake of some personal indulgence; stay tuned for the usual rant style post in my upcoming “The Bull’s take on Breastfeeding”First; start the player sweet graphics and real 1720 pirate ships

Man; I feel bad for people who don’t dance or whom are tone deaf. When I think of all the great things they miss out on I thank the heavens that I have all my faculties to aid me in the sweet experiences these skills afford. Actually I don’t even believe either of the afore mentioned birth defects exist in nature. Go to your nearest loved one; afflicted with ailment of “tonedeafedness” and ask them to sing “The alphabet song” or “happy birthday”. I bet that most every time; these “tone deaf” people are instantly and temporarily cured. So, why; you ask are they able tosing “marry had a little lamb” and not “the star spangled banner”. ONE WORD, desireandrepition. They have sung “the alphabet song” at least a thousand times over the course of their life and the same goes for “happy birthday”. They want to sing it right, and they have to sing it right. When asked to sing these songs they are not nervous, they know; they know it. (start the player again for effect)

Some people don’t play video games. This time, they will miss out. A new computer game is being launched January 22nd. My brother and I have been part of a super elite group of stress testers (aka open beta 🙂 Its called Pirates of the Burning Sea. In the game you can be a pirate or Frenchmen, you can be Spanish or English. You can be a naval officer or a merchantmen, A free trader. You can go to battle against other sloops, frigates or battle ships and use your sailing skills. Use strategy and wind direction to destroy you enemies sails and hull; then plunder the booty. The game has a real working economy. You can manufacture items to be sold on the market. Make ammo or ships, mine iron, copper or saltpeter. Advance to the big ships; Brigs and “ship of the line”. The game creators strive to make the game historically acurate’ 1720 Caribbean. I know so many people who would love this game. Sadly these same people, I will never convince to play. Why will they not play. One word desire. If they could just get past the shiny colors and reading , and clicking involved with the learning how. They would thank me a thousand times over. If I have in anyway peeked your interest. I invite you to come play with us. We will form an alliance of industry and ships and take over the world.
