Welcome to Britt5091: Origins, where I dig up old blog posts I used to write for IGN’s community under the username Britt5091. Some posts may make you giggle, some may make your eyes bleed, and some may make you stroke your beard in a pensive manner. All you need to know is that these posts, no matter how terrible some of them may be, ultimately lead to everything I do now.
Shooting is amazing fun and hackers suck.

Last Friday my dad and I decided to get the rifles out and do some shooting at Capital Forest (where we mostly hunt) at the gravel pit. We needed to sight our rifles in, and just felt like blowing some stuff up, because really, what else is there to do in Washington? Besides, I had already stalked around Nintendo of America’s HQ as well as Microsoft’s earlier that day.
My pop’s camera decided to flake out on us and erased more than half of the pictures, but I was able to salvage the following.
This was the serious part–sighting in ze rifles (both are 30.06). Like I said earlier, you don’t want papa bear charging you while your aim is half a foot off. No bueno.
Ahh my baby…AK-47. I just love shooting this thing. We don’t hunt with it; it’s just for recreational shooting and ish.
My dad picked up this .32 from a gun show. It was shooting fine until I shot a round and heard a weird noise. I didn?t see the round hit the target so I checked the barrel, and the bullet was lodged inside. Huh. That could have been bad.
All in all, we shot roughly 300 rounds. It was a good day. I also have a video I wanted to post, but technical difficulties got in the way and I couldn?t figure it out >__<
So last night I’m playing COD4 online. I had a kill streak of four going and reeeaallly wanted five.
I’m cooped up in the top floor of a building and haven’t seen anyone in 30 seconds or so. Then I see *future* kill number five making his way through the alley. Pieeece of cake.
I raise my weapon and—
BAM. I’m dead. Gone to the great respawn factory in the sky as Mr. Kill Number Five obliviously continues down the alley.
As I was watching the Kill Cam, I discovered my killer was looking DOWN on me and from a good distance too. Now, I’m unfamiliar with the maps but this even looked weird to me.
After I spawned, I made my way back to the same spot and looked up. And found him. The bastard was just standing in mid air. Floating if you will between two buildings.
Eh? All signs point to hacking but I know absolutely NOTHING about it or how it works.
Anyone care to share any knowledge? Or do you think this just a, uh, major glitch?

I really, REALLY need to get out and blow some shit up. Like, IRL.
I think that was one of the last times I played online CoD. I get WAY too antsy and my blood pressure skyrockets. I’d rather play a nice round of like, Peggle.
