That's right ladies and gents, the blog has officially hit the 50,000 unique views mark. And I thought I'd take the time to send out a Thank You to all the people who made this possible. First and foremost, to all the fans and viewers out there who.....actually read what I write on a regular basis, Thank you! It's odd that people actually want to hear me rant and rave and write on a regular basis when I started up here back on July 4th 2011. It almost makes me want to reconsider my wanting to finish culinary school and just write a book or something.
I'd also like to thank the man who actually allowed me to even have a place to write in the first place, that being Munki. I pick at him mercilessly, I know. But there's an old saying in my family; If we ain't pickin' on ya that means we don't like ya. So, thank you Munk.
And finally I'd like to thank myself in a John Lithgow egotistical moment. My natural talent and affinity with the written word is the envy of the entire internet. Without me it would be both boring and culturally dead. I shine light in an otherwise dark and dismal place (punctuated by John Lithgow smirk/sneer).
Also, to celebrate the 50k Awesome Sauce Epicness, or as I like to call it, "50k Sauce-some-ness", I'm combining this post with another. Like a modern day Frankenstein, I shall cobble together both to form one monster! Behold!

Eddie Raja: Tell you what - lead me to the gold, and I just might let you live.
Nathan Drake: Is that it? Is that my deal? Die now, or help you, and die later. It's a tough call, but you know what? I'll take "die now."
Grayson Hunt: Hey, You wanna make out? Just two gruff military hardened dudes sitting in an elevator snuggling out their woes in a totally hetero way?
Hunt: That's a nervous chuckle. Either your human side gets the joke or your computer side likes the way I look in these pants.
Ishi: Or a little of both perhaps.
Hunt: Hey. I'm not judgin'. I'm just a good lookin' man!

When I said "deadly neurotoxin," the "deadly" was in massive sarcasm quotes. I could take a bath in this stuff. Put it on cereal, rub it right into my eyes... honestly, it's not deadly at all... to me. You, on the other hand, are going to find its deadliness...a lot less funny. - GLaDOS
Time out for a second. That wasn't supposed to happen. Do you see that thing that fell out of me? What is that? It's not the surprise. I've never seen it before! Never mind. It's a mystery I'll solve later... by myself, because you'll be dead. - GLaDOS
Oh, Hi. So How are you holding up? BECAUSE I'M A POTATO! (claps slowly three times). Oh, good. My slow-clap processor made it into this thing......so we have that. Since it doesn't look like we're going anywhere....well, we are going somewhere. Alarmingly fast, actually. But since we're not busy other than that, here's a couple of facts. He's not just a regular moron. He's the product of the greatest minds of a generation working together with the express purpose of building the dumbest moron who ever lived. And you just put him in charge of the entire facility. (clap.....clap)...Good, that's still working. Hey, just in case this pit isn't actually bottomless, do you think maybe you could unstrap one of those long-fall boots of yours and shove me into it? Just remember to land on one foot. -GLaDOS
Cave Johnson: All right, I've been thinking, when life gives you lemons, don't make lemonade!

GLaDOS: Yeah, take the lemons!

Ooh. It's dark down here, isn't it? They say that the old caretaker of this place went absolutely crazy. Chopped up his entire staff - of robots - all of them robots! They say at night you can still here the screams - of their replicas. All of them functionally indistinguishable from the originals... No memory of the incident... Nobody knows what they're screaming about. Ab-solutely terrifying. Though obviously not paranormal in any meaningful way. - Wheatley
You look ugly in that jumpsuit. That's not my opinion; it's right here on your fact sheet. They said on everyone else it looked fine, but on you, it looked hideous. But still what does an old engineer know about fashion? Oh, wait, it's a she. Still, what does she know about - oh, wait. She has a medical degree. In fashion. From France. - GLaDOS

I'll relinquish one bullet. Where do you want it? - Shepard (when asked to relinquish his/her weapons)
EDI: Really Commander?! (when launching a probe at Uranus)
EDI: ......probing Uranus (If you do it again)
Shepard: I'm sorry, I know that was important, but *you* performed Gilbert and Sullivan?
Professor Mordin Solus (singing): I am the very model of a scientist salarian - I've studied species Turian, Asari and Batarian - I'm quite good at genetics as a subset of biology - because I am an expert which I know is atautology! My xenoscience studies range from urban to agrarian - I am the very model of a scientist salariaaaaaaaaaaan! (long pause) Ahem.
