Thirty years ago a legendary ET game came to fruition, so awful that as the tale told, all unsold copies of it were buried in a pit in New Mexico. A documentary film crew has just unearthed the stash, proving the legend true.

I don’t think people fully grasp just how awful it was. This one game, by the sheer merit of its unmatched shittiness, destroyed the video game and console market so thoroughly that the at home video game nearly went the way of the 8-track player.
It was literally so awful that it nearly changed the entire course of technology.

Children, Club, and Dad: Cheko reacted quickly when he saw his owner get threatend with a knife in a domestic dispute, he dived in front of his mom to protect her. Here he is shown recovering from being stabbed 13 times. Four intruders, one armed with a shotgun broke into a family home where the father was threatened to open the family safe, when the dad of 3 didn't comply the indruder got ready to open fire where Lefty the pit bull jumped at him blocking the shot from his daddy and got a bullet wound to his shoulder. The intruder was injured by the dog and they all quickly fled from the scene. Baby, a 10 year old pit bull woke up her family in the middle of the night to alert them of a blazing fire that had broken out. Managing to avoid the vicious flames, one by one she woke up each family member and led them to safty. After putting her humans out of danger, she then ran back into the burning house to save the family's other five dogs, one of which was blind and too scared to go with her so she pulled the dog out by the scruff of the neck. The home was completely distroyed but thanks to Baby, no-one had a single burn. Cara was walking her dog, Creature one night and couldn't help but notice he had a lot of interest in a certain bush. Shrugging it of as he's just seen a cat, Creature carried on to pull and bark to alert his owner that something wasn't quite right. Cara finally went with her companions instinct and decided to check it out, where she found an elderly woman in her PJs on the ground, shivering from the cold. Who she found was Carmen Mitchell, 89, suffers from Alzheimer's and had wandered from her home. When Bella the pit bull mix was seen running into traffic and barking at pedestrians, she was thought to be just another stray. Teri was one of those pedestrians and decided the follow the mixed breed. Bella lead Teri to her home, where her wheelchair-bound owner was found on the floor with stab wounds in his neck while clinging to life. Her owner luckily survived and says that he owes his life to Bella for running to get help. I made this comp because the media only concerntrates on the badly-owned pit bulls then blame their breed for it for their actions. There's hundreds of stories about heroic pit bulls that saidly never make it to mainstream media as people seem to love an outrage. If this gets a good reaction then i'll put more up but i don't want to bore anyone for now. I have a pit bull who i took from a dog fighter when he was a puppy, even though he's been 'bred to fight' i've raised him right and in the 11 years of having him he's never hurt anyone and has given me nothing but happiness (and maybe a couple of chewed up shoes) Thanks for reading guys, i hope the world is a little more open- minded on this misunderstood yet lovable breed. malicemanaged: almostrose: helainetieu: I hope everyone reblogs this. For most of the 114 years since the American pitbull terrier was first recognized by the United Kennel Club, the breed was rightly seen as the perfect “nanny dog” for children because of its friendly nature, loyalty and stability. [x] Pit bulls have always been protectors. With good owners and proper care, they still are. Chako*, Lefty, Baby, Creature, and Bela are proof of that. Pitbulls are great dogs and anyone who says otherwise can fucking fight me

 bull jumped at him blocking the shot
 from his daddy and got a bullet wound
 to his shoulder. The intruder was injured
 by the dog and they all quickly fled from
 the scene.

 Baby, a 10 year old pit bull woke up her
 family in the middle of the night to alert
 them of a blazing fire that had broken
 out. Managing to avoid the vicious
 flames, one by one she woke up each
 family member and led them to safty.
 After putting her humans out of
 danger, she then ran back into the
 burning house to save the family's
 other five dogs, one of which was blind
 and too scared to go with her so she
 pulled the dog out by the scruff of the
 neck. The home was completely
 distroyed but thanks to Baby, no-one
 had a single burn.
 Cara was walking her dog, Creature one
 night and couldn't help but notice he
 had a lot of interest in a certain bush.
 Shrugging it of as he's just seen a cat,
 Creature carried on to pull and bark to
 alert his owner that something wasn't
 quite right. Cara finally went with her
 companions instinct and decided to
 check it out, where she found an
 elderly woman in her PJs on the
 ground, shivering from the cold. Who
 she found was Carmen Mitchell, 89,
 suffers from Alzheimer's and had
 wandered from her home.

 When Bella the pit bull mix was seen
 running into traffic and barking at
 pedestrians, she was thought to be just
 another stray. Teri was one of those
 pedestrians and decided the follow the
 mixed breed. Bella lead Teri to her
 home, where her wheelchair-bound
 owner was found on the floor with
 stab wounds in his neck while clinging
 to life. Her owner luckily survived and
 says that he owes his life to Bella for
 running to get help.
 I made this comp because the media only
 concerntrates on the badly-owned pit
 bulls then blame their breed for it for
 their actions. There's hundreds of stories
 about heroic pit bulls that saidly never
 make it to mainstream media as people
 seem to love an outrage. If this gets a
 good reaction then i'll put more up but i
 don't want to bore anyone for now.
 I have a pit bull who i took from a dog
 fighter when he was a puppy, even
 though he's been 'bred to fight' i've
 raised him right and in the 11 years of
 having him he's never hurt anyone and
 has given me nothing but happiness (and
 maybe a couple of chewed up shoes)
 Thanks for reading guys, i hope
 the world is a little more open-
 minded on this misunderstood
 yet lovable breed.

I hope everyone reblogs this.


For most of the 114 years since the American pitbull terrier was first recognized by the United Kennel Club, the breed was rightly seen as the perfect “nanny dog” for children because of its friendly nature, loyalty and stability. [x]
Pit bulls have always been protectors. With good owners and proper care, they still are. Chako*, Lefty, Baby, Creature, and Bela are proof of that.


Pitbulls are great dogs and anyone who says otherwise can fucking fight me

No. Hollywood has an older man problem.

this is so gross

I wish I could remember the name of the actress who went ballistic after being told that, at 35, she was too old to play the love interest for the 55-year-old lead.

It was Maggie Gyllenhall.  And I stand corrected, she was 37.


Damn

Yes ma'am I couldn't help but to let you know So I feel like this is a teachable moment for you. While I know you were wanting to give me a compliment, it was completely unnecessary and unsolicited. I am a customer, you are a service provider, and there should be no communication between us outside of that unless I, the customer express interest. I am married, we discussed this when I was talking about my car maintenance, so it can be assumed that I am not interested in any compliments/advances from you When you contacted me, I felt a little panicked because you went back in my file and got my number...

It is a violation of my privacy for you to contact me from your personal phone with information that you got without my permission. And now I know that you are the type of person to go back in someone's file to find their personal information, what is to keep you from going back and getting my address? There are men who stalk rape, and murder women by getting their information this way.
