I was only 9 years old I loved shrek so much, I had all the merchandise and movies
I pray to shrek every night before bed thanking him for the life I've been given.
Shrek is love I say, Shrek is life
My dad overhears me and calls me a ♥♥♥♥♥♥
I knew he was just jealous of my devotion for Shrek
I called him a ♥♥♥♥
He slaps me and sends me to go to sleep
Im crying now, and my face hurts
I lay in bed and its really cold
A warmth is moving towards me.
I feel something touch me
Its shrek
I am so happy
He whispers in to ear "this is my swamp
He grabs me with his powerful ogre hands and puts me on my hands and knees
I'm ready
I spread my ♥♥♥ cheeks for Shrek
He penetrates my ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
It hurts so much but I do it for Shrek
I can feel my butt tearing as my eyes start to water
I push against his force
I want to please Shrek
He roars a mighty roar as he fills my butt with his love
My dad walks in
Shrek looks him straight in the eye and says "Its all ogre now"
Shrek leaves through my window
Shrek is love, Shrek is life

also a few glitches in the early levels

Seinfeld is an American sitcom that originally ran for nine seasons on NBC, from 1989 to 1998. It was created by Larry David and Jerry Seinfeld, the latter starring as a fictionalized version of himself. Set predominantly in an apartment building in Manhattan's Upper West Side in New York City (although taped entirely in Los Angeles), the show features a handful of Jerry's friends and acquaintances, particularly best friend George Costanza (Jason Alexander), former girlfriend Elaine Benes (Julia Louis-Dreyfus), and neighbor across the hall Cosmo Kramer (Michael Richards). It is often described as being "a show about nothing", as many of its episodes are about the minutiae of daily life.

According to all known laws
of aviation,


there is no way a bee
should be able to fly.


Its wings are too small to get
its fat little body off the ground.


The bee, of course, flies anyway


because bees don't care
what humans think is impossible.


Yellow, black. Yellow, black.
Yellow, black. Yellow, black.


Ooh, black and yellow!
Let's shake it up a little.


Barry! Breakfast is ready!


Ooming!


Hang on a second.


Hello?


- Barry?
- Adam?


- Oan you believe this is happening?
- I can't. I'll pick you up.


Looking sharp.


Use the stairs. Your father
paid good money for those.


Sorry. I'm excited.


Here's the graduate.
We're very proud of you, son.


A perfect report card, all B's.


Very proud.


Ma! I got a thing going here.


- You got lint on your fuzz.
- Ow! That's me!


- Wave to us! We'll be in row 118,000.
- Bye!


Barry, I told you,
stop flying in the house!


- Hey, Adam.
- Hey, Barry.


- Is that fuzz gel?
- A little. Special day, graduation.


Never thought I'd make it.


Three days grade school,
three days high school.


Those were awkward.


Three days college. I'm glad I took
a day and hitchhiked around the hive.


You did come back different.


- Hi, Barry.
- Artie, growing a mustache? Looks good.


- Hear about Frankie?
- Yeah.


- You going to the funeral?
- No, I'm not going.


Everybody knows,
sting someone, you die.


Don't waste it on a squirrel.
Such a hothead.


I guess he could have
just gotten out of the way.


I love this incorporating
an amusement park into our day.


That's why we don't need vacations.


Boy, quite a bit of pomp...
under the circumstances.


- Well, Adam, today we are men.
- We are!


- Bee-men.
- Amen!


Hallelujah!


Students, faculty, distinguished bees,


please welcome Dean Buzzwell.


Welcome, New Hive Oity
graduating class of...


...9:15.


That concludes our ceremonies.


And begins your career
at Honex Industries!


Will we pick ourjob today?


I heard it's just orientation.


Heads up! Here we go.


Keep your hands and antennas
inside the tram at all times.


- Wonder what it'll be like?
- A little scary.


Welcome to Honex,
a division of Honesco


and a part of the Hexagon Group.


This is it!


Wow.


Wow.


We know that you, as a bee,
have worked your whole life


to get to the point where you
can work for your whole life.


Honey begins when our valiant Pollen
Jocks bring the nectar to the hive.


Our top-secret formula


is automatically color-corrected,
scent-adjusted and bubble-contoured


into this soothing sweet syrup


with its distinctive
golden glow you know as...


Honey!


- That girl was hot.
- She's my cousin!


- She is?
- Yes, we're all cousins.


- Right. You're right.
- At Honex, we constantly strive


to improve every aspect
of bee existence.


These bees are stress-testing
a new helmet technology.


- What do you think he makes?
- Not enough.


Here we have our latest advancement,
the Krelman.


- What does that do?
- Oatches that little strand of honey


that hangs after you pour it.
Saves us millions.


Oan anyone work on the Krelman?


Of course. Most bee jobs are
small ones. But bees know


that every small job,
if it's done well, means a lot.


But choose carefully


because you'll stay in the job
you pick for the rest of your life.


The same job the rest of your life?
I didn't know that.


What's the difference?


You'll be happy to know that bees,
as a species, haven't had one day off


in 27 million years.


So you'll just work us to death?


We'll sure try.


Wow! That blew my mind!


"What's the difference?"
How can you say that?


One job forever?
That's an insane choice to have to make.


I'm relieved. Now we only have
to make one decision in life.


But, Adam, how could they
never have told us that?


Why would you question anything?
We're bees.


We're the most perfectly
functioning society on Earth.


You ever think maybe things
work a little too well here?


Like what? Give me one example.


I don't know. But you know
what I'm talking about.


Please clear the gate.
Royal Nectar Force on approach.


Wait a second. Oheck it out.


- Hey, those are Pollen Jocks!
- Wow.


I've never seen them this close.


They know what it's like
outside the hive.


Yeah, but some don't come back.


- Hey, Jocks!
- Hi, Jocks!


You guys did great!


You're monsters!
You're sky freaks! I love it! I love it!


- I wonder where they were.
- I don't know.


Their day's not planned.


Outside the hive, flying who knows
where, doing who knows what.


You can'tjust decide to be a Pollen
Jock. You have to be bred for that.


Right.


Look. That's more pollen
than you and I will see in a lifetime.


It's just a status symbol.
Bees make too much of it.


Perhaps. Unless you're wearing it
and the ladies see you wearing it.


Those ladies?
Aren't they our cousins too?


Distant. Distant.


Look at these two.


- Oouple of Hive Harrys.
- Let's have fun with them.


It must be dangerous
being a Pollen Jock.


Yeah. Once a bear pinned me
against a mushroom!


He had a paw on my throat,
and with the other, he was slapping me!


- Oh, my!
- I never thought I'd knock him out.


What were you doing during this?


Trying to alert the authorities.


I can autograph that.


A little gusty out there today,
wasn't it, comrades?


Yeah. Gusty.


We're hitting a sunflower patch
six miles from here tomorrow.


- Six miles, huh?
- Barry!


A puddle jump for us,
but maybe you're not up for it.


- Maybe I am.
- You are not!


We're going 0900 at J-Gate.


What do you think, buzzy-boy?
Are you bee enough?


I might be. It all depends
on what 0900 means.


Hey, Honex!


Dad, you surprised me.


You decide what you're interested in?


- Well, there's a lot of choices.
- But you only get one.


Do you ever get bored
doing the same job every day?


Son, let me tell you about stirring.


You grab that stick, and you just
move it around, and you stir it around.


You get yourself into a rhythm.
It's a beautiful thing.


You know, Dad,
the more I think about it,


maybe the honey field
just isn't right for me.


You were thinking of what,
making balloon animals?


That's a bad job
for a guy with a stinger.


Janet, your son's not sure
he wants to go into honey!


- Barry, you are so funny sometimes.
- I'm not trying to be funny.


You're not funny! You're going
into honey. Our son, the stirrer!


- You're gonna be a stirrer?
- No one's listening to me!


Wait till you see the sticks I have.


I could say anything right now.
I'm gonna get an ant tattoo!


Let's open some honey and celebrate!


Maybe I'll pierce my thorax.
Shave my antennae.


Shack up with a grasshopper. Get
a gold tooth and call everybody "dawg"!


I'm so proud.


- We're starting work today!
- Today's the day.


Oome on! All the good jobs
will be gone.


Yeah, right.


Pollen counting, stunt bee, pouring,
stirrer, front desk, hair removal...


- Is it still available?
- Hang on. Two left!


One of them's yours! Oongratulations!
Step to the side.


- What'd you get?
- Picking crud out. Stellar!


Wow!


Oouple of newbies?


Yes, sir! Our first day! We are ready!


Make your choice.


- You want to go first?
- No, you go.


Oh, my. What's available?


Restroom attendant's open,
not for the reason you think.


- Any chance of getting the Krelman?
- Sure, you're on.


I'm sorry, the Krelman just closed out.


Wax monkey's always open.


The Krelman opened up again.


What happened?


A bee died. Makes an opening. See?
He's dead. Another dead one.


Deady. Deadified. Two more dead.


Dead from the neck up.
Dead from the neck down. That's life!


Oh, this is so hard!


Heating, cooling

My Grandfather smoked his whole life. I was about 10 years old when my mother said to him. "if you ever want to see your grandchildren graduate. you have to stop immediately." Tears welled up in his eyes when he realized what exacly was at stake. He gave it up immediately. Three years later he died of lung cancer. It was really sad and destroyed me. My mother said to me - "Don't ever smoke. Please don't put your family through what your Grandfather put us through". I agreed. At 27, i have never touched a cigarette. I must say. I feel a very slight sense of regret for never having done it, because this game gave me cancer anyway.

Bad Rats: The Rats' Revenge is set in the year 2083. 5 years prior to the events in Bad Rats: The Rats' Revenge, a human colony on Mars discovered a massive tunnel network 2 miles underground. Believing it to be uninhabited, colonists began exploring the tunnels until one day, the colony suddenly vanished without a trace. News reporters who went to investigate never returned. After 6 days of fruitless searching, another colony disappeared, but this time, our protagonist caught sight of what must be the source of the colonies' disappearance: a huge army of bipedal cats armed with technology far beyond humanity's capability, able to turn humans into rats and alter the laws of physics to suit a cat-friendly environment.

Our protagonist warned the other Martian colonies of the cats, but the warnings are met with intense laughter; no one believed that their pets could've possibly done such a thing. One by one, the colonies disappeared, and before the last one was attacked, our protagonist took a shuttle to Earth to try to warn of their impending doom.

Earth's economy, which depended heavily on raw materials from Mars, collapsed soon after the last colony disappeared, plunging Earth into chaos. Widespread public discontent, rioting, terrorism, suicide incidents, and nuclear war descended upon Earth. As if that wasn't enough, the cats invaded Earth very soon afterwards, turning what was left of humanity into a bunch of rats and enslaving the human population.

Under the cats' rule, the rats suffered dearly. A rat's expected lifespan was in constant decline, from an average of 110 years of age before the invasion to a new average of 20 years. A newspaper, written by our protagonist and titled "Bad Rats," soon emerged. It called for open revolt against the rule of the cats, arguing that they were exploiting the rats to live their own aristocratic lifestyles. The contents were scoffed by the cats, but the rats soaked in every word of it. From the newspaper stemmed rumors of deportation, torture, mass executions, and anything else that could stir revolutionary fervor. The first incidents of revolt occurred in decentralized acts of terrorism. The cats responded by banning the circulation of "Bad Rats," tightening their grip over the rats, and starting a process of rendering the rats unable to read or write. This, however, did nothing to contain the rats\' growing hatred towards the cats.

On September 13, 2081, the revolution began. An armed mob of rats seized Florida from the cats, inspiring revolts across the entire globe. Rats who were once fighting bitterly among themselves, such as terrorist rats and murican rats, now stood side by side against a common enemy: the cats. After 2 years, the rats were able to seize control of the Americas from the cats, but the cats retained a stranglehold over the rest of the world. Both sides suffered immense casualty rates in the process, and morale dropped sharply on both sides. And the war is just getting started...

To counteract the loss of morale, the rat high command gave the order to set up public executions of the cat POWs. They hired our protagonist to host such events. It is now in your hands to reinvigorate anti-cat sentiment and fuel support for the war effort by elaborately murdering the cat oppressors.

The game focuses heavily on controversial themes, forcing the player to ask why he/she exists and consider the validity of what mankind has accepted as the norm. Featuring unrivaled graphics, cunning level design that will challenge the greatest of minds, a brilliantly orchestrated OST that deserves a live performance at Carnegie Hall, and voice acting that would make Kevin Spacey and Peter Dinklage quit, this piece of artwork is the epitome of gaming and a model that all other developers should follow.

That invent4 is nice enough to sell such a flawless masterpiece at only 99 cents is a sure sign of selflessness despite the fact that the game is worth 2000 times the price of triple A modern releases.

An avant-garde critique of modern capitalism and America's foreign policies, combined with lightning fast gameplay and cutting wit, this game is quite possibly the most potent advocation for video games as an art form.

Bad Rats is a very complex game with many endings. It has about 42 story endings and a plot twist where one of the rats trick the cat. Bad Rats has earned GOTY on steam 5+ times for being an interactive story driven game. People say this game has as influential as half life 2. Bad Rats revolutionized the source engine. Gabe Newman himself said "We created the surce 2 engine for Bad Rats: The Rats Strike back, because it was such a masterpeice of our generation", Bad Rats still stands the test of time. As a game every game developer should play before getting into the game industry.

Some say Bad Rats was based off the award winning show Seinfeld. For its amazing story arc and many endings. Seinfeld also revolutionized the game industry but also the anime industry.

This was an amazing game. I spent 40 hours of my life on this, and counting. I find that the motive of the rats is much deeper than the average user would think to consider. If you notice the suicide bomber rat, he's willing to end his own life just to further to cause in order to kill the cats. You see, the rats, the protaganist, actually represent the United States Military, carrying out orders without further consideration of their effects. They kill the cats, just because that's what they're supposed to do. This game has an incredibly deep, and detailed campeign, while keeping itself light enough to be enjoyed by the average user. This game is a stroke of brillence, the perfect balance between story and gameplay. While the physics engine could use some work, it's a lot of fun to work around it, and to figure out new solutions for the same puzzles. Overall, I give it a 9/11, and reccomend this meme to all of my friends.
