Guess what guys and gals, rAge is only a month away. Now, nothing goes better with a day filled with gaming than an afternoon/evening of booze and witty banter. This is why we’re organizing an official lazygamer get together!

That’s right, you will actually get to see your favorite community commenters, oh, and yeah – US!

  • When: Saturday, 5 October 2013 from 4pm
  • Where: Hogshead Rock Cottage
  • Who: Everyone you sorta know and have ambivalent feelings about
  • What: Much drinking and joking
  • How: Darryn will provide us with a step by step instruction, I’m sure

Please RSVP on our Facebook event page so that we know how many of you we need to hide from. Also, invite all your friends, because the more the merrier.

            Well, even the fastest amphibious vehicle can only reach 45mph, from my house to this gathering it’s roughly 7881 miles. The vast vast majority would be by water, so we’re talking (again, rough estimates) 175.13 hours of travel time. That’s provided I could get a shadow boat to carry enough gas for the amphibious vehicle that I don’t own lol, and figure out a way to refuel the vehicle, while in motion, in the middle of the ocean.

            Of course, this also assumes I’d be in motion for 24 hours a day, for a little over a week…I HAVE stayed up for 168 hours before…but not 175, and I definitely wasn’t driving a car/boat at that time πŸ˜‰

            I’m not sure this is the most convenient method of traveling to South Africa from the US.
