It appears that I have at last discovered my Kryptonite. And unlike bullets, poison, blunt trauma, stab wound, mismanaged auto-erotic asphyxiation and Kryptonite, this one is a doozy. I’ve flown before, and while I usually self-coma myself into a state to survive the take-off procedure of fear, my flights were never that long. But flying for a solid four days within a week? That damn pressurised air cabin got to me, leaving me with a bloody nose, an eye red enough to count as a sharingan technique and sleepless nights. Although I blame the latter on the fat jerkass oppostie me who snored for twelve straight hours, sawing all kinds of logs. Bastard!

Because he's the writer that Lazygamer deserves, but not the one it actually needs right now. So we'll hunt him. Because he can't take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a loud-mouthed journalist, a watchful procrastinator. A dork knight.

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    aaaaaaand Darryn is back!

  • Admiral Chief Erwin

    Hey, at least its not Aki Anastasiou in lingerie

    • Lardus

      There’s a real person in the lingerie? Where? I only saw a stick-person!

    • CaptainNemo42

      Don’t joke. He posed naked for Marie Claire Magazine. Heard it like an hour ago on 702.

      • matthurstrsa

        I saw the picture (he tweeted it). :(

        • CaptainNemo42

          Luckily I missed that tweet.

          At least it was for a good cause. Or so they would have us believe.

          • matthurstrsa

            Yeah, not sure how much of the money actually goes to the charity. I guess it would have to be for a good cause, otherwise they wouldn’t do it?

          • CaptainNemo42

            I don’t think the Organ Donor Fund gets any money. It’s more of an awareness thing. It’s strange how many people don’t want to, or even know about organ donations. The waiting list is incredibly long.

          • matthurstrsa

            Yeah, its weird. You’re dead, probably going to be cremated, why wouldn’t you donate your organs? People are selfish man.

          • CaptainNemo42

            Yes, people are, but strangely enough, as far as I know the ultimate decision lies with your family members. We were fortunately enough a couple of years ago, but as far as I know, you have to make sure that those that you leave behind are aware of your wish to recycle yourself. Because even if you are registered, it remains their decision.

            Although, I could be wrong and that could have changed.

          • matthurstrsa

            It would be very strange if they could go against your wishes after your death. Then they could just change your will as well?

          • CaptainNemo42

            I think it’s more a matter of awareness but family members. Some might oppose it because I don’t think it is enforceable like in a will. Also, family members might take too long and before you know it, it’s too late. All because they didn’t know your wishes.

            The people from the Organ donors fund will obviously try to get hold of them as well. But the moment you blow out your last breathe, the time starts ticking down.

          • matthurstrsa

            Thanks for that! I’m going to tell them all now I wish to have my organs donated. Its the right thing to do.

          • CaptainNemo42

            Haha. In our family it not even an issue. Like I said, we were very lucky with a donation in our family a couple of years ago, and it kind of opens your mind a bit to these things.

            Remember to register if you are not registered. :)

  • Sir Captain Rincethis

    Meh, after 4 years in China I’m over the appeal of Asian woman. Never thought I’d say that.

    • Andre116

      Why you no like asian? Asian women love you long time.

      • Sir Captain Rincethis

        Thats the problem. I had Asian for four long years… Fours long years of CRAZY 0-o

        • Admiral Chief Erwin

          Nothing like a proper boere meisie

          • Sir Captain Rincethis

            Right on!

  • Deon Steyn

    Heeeeeeeeyyyyyyyyyy Darryn. In other news is like the cherry on top at days end.

  • Izzy

    o.o Well now, that’s not your every-day camera angle. Kudos, I say! Beautiful ION girl at the end of a dismal Monday. Exceptional choice, D.

    I saw a movie once… it started just like that..

    • Andre116

      Think I saw a similar movie, but the one I saw ended like that.

      • http://www.facebook.com/people/Kervyn-Cloete/610830836 Kervyn Cloete

        I think I also saw this movie. Did yours also have tentacles in it?

        • Andre116

          That’s just disgusting man. What is it with you and tentacles? Mine did not have any of that weird stuff in it. It was a rather romantic movie, involving a love octadecagon between her and 17 other men. It ended in a glorious bukkake.

          • Sir Captain Rincethis

            0-O

    Why do her breasts look like really flat ostrich eggs?

    • mornelithe

      Because you have an unnatural obsession with Ostrich Eggs? Plus, I think you may be the only person in the world who knows where to find flat Ostrich Eggs. :)

      • Admiral Chief Erwin
