The headline gives too much credit to Trump. It assumes he can think ("ponders") for himself.

Google... We need to have a talk... Why do you keep shitting on YouTubers? Shouldn't you be asking the community as a whole if they want to give up a VERY WIDELY USED AND IMPORTANT part of the system for their videos? If it wasn't for the YouTubers out there bringing everyone and their cousins to your site, you wouldn't be making the money hand over fist that you do now.

That whole community program you started along with the failed YouTube Heroes thing... <sarcasm>Yeah, that was a real winner.</sarcasm> You really do need to listen to the people that matter most, the people that made the site as large as it is now. Without them, YouTube would go the way of MySpace.

Your greed for money has led you astray to the big corporate media giants and the MPAA/RIAA, and all you really got back was some money so they don't sue you into oblivion and a brown smudge on your upper lip.

You have my permission to kind go piss off. I'm don't talking to you now, Google.

After a long day of dealing with possible court cases and getting my disability benefits straightened out, this is exactly how I feel. The disability thing is going well though.

Now I still have to deal with a credit card collections attorney that has opened up a court case against me. I have no idea what to do or where to go now. I've never been summoned to a case about me. Of course, the complaint in the case is "broken contract" due to my inability to pay back what I used on the card. I will admit that I owe the money, would like to pay it back, and would like to settle the problem out of court. I wish I could talk to an attorney to get some advice, but they don't do anything for free. I can't blame them.

I only have 4 months to find a place to live. That in itself is hard to do when rent for even a studio around here is upwards of $1000 and my disability benefit is just a tad bit higher than that. I'm almost 40 years old, and for the first time in my life, I am actually scared because I don't know what to do, and I don't have anyone to turn to.

Send help before I, as this poor little squirrel, get turned into road pizza!

Poor Alex. He just seems to have some of the worst luck as a YouTuber. I feel sorry for him.

His "Search for the Worst" series is probably one of the best movie related series I've followed in quite a while, and makes for a good reason to follow him.

If he gets banned/suspended again, just follow @IHE_OFFICIAL on Twitter to stay up to date about what is going on.

On this day:
At 20th March of 1997, Namco releases Tekken 3 for the arcades. Tekken 3 is the third installment in the popular Tekken fighting game series. It was released in arcades in March 1997, and for the PlayStation in 1998. Tekken 3 is widely considered one of the greatest games of all time. With more than 8.5 million copies sold worldwide, Tekken 3 is the second best selling fighting game of all time, second to only Super Smash Brothers Brawl and the fourth best-selling PlayStation game ever. A non-canon sequel was released in 1999 and 2000 in arcades and on the PlayStation 2 respectively, titled Tekken Tag Tournament. It was followed by the canon sequel Tekken 4 in arcades and on the PlayStation 2 in 2001 and 2002, respectively.

Set fifteen years after the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 2, the story starts with Jun Kazama, who has been living a quiet life in Yakushima with her young son, Jin, who is the son of Kazuya Mishima. Heihachi Mishima, meanwhile, has established the Tekken Force, an organization dedicated to the protection of the Mishima Zaibatsu. Using the company's influence, Heihachi is responsible for many events that have ultimately led to world peace.

However, while on an excavation in Mexico, a squadron of Heihachi's Tekken Force is attacked and vanquished by a mysterious being. The only surviving soldier manages to relay a brief message to Heihachi, describing the perpetrator as an "Ogre" or a "Fighting God". Heihachi and a team of soldiers investigate, with Heihachi managing to catch a glimpse of the culprit. After seeing the Ogre character, Heihachi's long dormant dream of world domination is reawakened. He seeks to capture Ogre to use him for this goal.

Soon after, various martial arts masters begin disappearing from all over the world, and Heihachi is convinced that this is Ogre's doing. In Yakushima, Jun starts to feel the presence of Ogre approaching her and Jin. Knowing that she has become a target, Jun tells Jin about Ogre, and instructs him to go straight to Heihachi should anything happen. Sometime after Jin's fifteenth birthday, Ogre does indeed attack.

Against Jun's wishes, Jin valiantly tries to fight Ogre off, but Ogre brushes him aside and knocks him unconscious. When Jin reawakens, he finds that the house has been burned to the ground, and that his mother is missing and most likely dead. Driven by revenge, Jin goes to Heihachi and tells him everything. Jin begs Heihachi to train him to become strong enough to face Ogre again. Heihachi accepts.

Three years later, Jin grows into an impressive fighter and master of Mishima Style Karate. On Jin's nineteenth birthday, the King of the Iron Fist Tournament 3 is announced, and Jin prepares for his upcoming battle against Ogre. He is unaware, however, that Heihachi is merely using him and the rest of the competitors as bait to lure Ogre out in order to capture him. Eventually, the tournament leads to the final confrontation between Jin and The God of Fight.

Paul Phoenix was successful in defeating Ogre, however, he leaves after winning the match. Unknown to him at the time, Ogre is able to transform into a much more powerful "true" from, known to the players as "True Ogre". When Jin arrives, he is confronted by this True Ogre form and begins the fight. The battle rages for hours, until Jin finally emerges the victor and Ogre completely dissolves. Moments later, Jin is gunned down by a squadron of Tekken Forces led by Heihachi, who, no longer needing Jin, finishes the job personally by firing a final shot into his grandson's head.

However, Jin, revived by the Devil Gene within him (because after Jin's mother had gone missing following an attack from Ogre, Devil returned, branded Jin's left arm with a mark, possessing him), reawakens and makes quick work of the soldiers, turning his attention to Heihachi and literally smashing him through the wall of the temple. Heihachi survives the long fall, but Jin, in mid-air, sprouts black, feathery wings and strikes Heihachi one last time. He then flies off into the night, leaving his bewildered grandfather staring after him.

The third installment to Namco's hand-to-hand fighter takes place an entire 15 years after Tekken 2...with many of the veteran Tekken characters looking notably older. Tekken's gameplay hadn't changed a whole lot from Tekken to Tekken 2, but Tekken 3 introduced some key gameplay elements that enhanced the classic the gameplay, including the God-send known as the "sidestep".... Finally, Tekken not only looked 3D, but played 3D as well.

Along with improved character control and noticeably smoother animations, the most notable addition to the core gameplay this time around is side stepping, which allowed for a new way to dodge attacks. Tapping up or down on the D-pad allows fighters to move around the 3D environments and dodge their opponent's attacks if timed properly.

The sidestep truly re-invented Tekken's combo oriented gameplay system, and opened up new strategies like the hard-hitting "side throws" (which were exclusive to each character). The side throws differed depending on if you caught your opponent on their left or right, and were some of the coolest (and most painful) looking moves in the game... can you say ouch factor ?

Now that the core gameplay was evolving from a 2D plane into a 3D plane, the character development was also able to take a noticeable step forward in Tekken 3. Several intricately designed new fighters have joined the cast, each representing their own unique brand of authentic martial arts. Even though several characters from the prequels were sadly missing, Tekken 3's character selection was the most balanced, and most impressive roster to date. Tekken 3 was one of the best (if not the best) fighting game ever made at the time of it's release.
