I was speaking with someone last night through /tell's who told me what had to be the craziest, oddest, and most hillarious FFXI story I had heard in a while.

Ya, you know who you are. :D

So I suggested creating a topic to gather all these nuggets together. I decided to put it on the server forum, because well... frankly I check this forum more than any of the others. ~.^

I won't tell his story and steal his thunder, but I will tell my own.

Many, many levels ago in a dustbowl far away I was partying with a group. It was fairly late and night, and besides being a bit tired, I had gotten bored of just standing there and healing, so thought it would be great to whack at the mob (ineffectively) with my little staff. All is great, party takes damage, I hit my cure macro, and all is well.

I did notice that it seemed the HP being restored to the party was a little bit delayed, but I thought it was just lag. After the mob falls I jump for joy and begin patting myself on the back for being able to handle fighting and healing at the same time.

Then my party lays into me, asking me why I was curing the mob the entire time. The BLM had gray hair from trying to keep the party alive while I was evidently lost in another world.

After I explained myself and let them each have 5 lashes, we all had a big laugh. Needless to say I don't lock onto the mobs in battle anymore. ~.^

So there... post your crazy exploits here. I mean, a stories only good if people know about it right? :D

Ok, I'll tell the story Prissea mentioned above. I meant to post it earlier but work got in the way. HATE it when that happens.

I went to Khazam to level RDM last night. When I zone into the jungle I see San d'Oria has the region. WOOT! I set HP since I was only an airship away form Jeuno and settle into a GREAT pt experience.

Needless to say, I got level 25 and shortly thereafter, our BLM had to go and the rest of us saw it was getting late so we decided to call it a night. To end the evening we agree to 2hour a gob and beat it so bad I almost fealt sorry for the little punk.

We then decide (stupidly) to pull another because the SMN still had her 2hour going. Well, it got revenge for it's boy by slapping us around with the quickness. Lucky me, I was the first to die, so I hit HP since it was right beside our camp.

I'm getting frustrated waiting for the screen to load to try and save my pt members thinking "WTF is taking so long". Low and behold, I get the cut scene for the heat element for my Carbuncle Ruby. SMN is the only job I have left to get and I spent a lot of time in the dunes and going to Alteppa Desert trying to get heat, and I finally get it from DEATH in the jungle. This game is so weird some times. It was awesome. lol

I was getting burnt out lfging for hours with my DKR after hitting about level 40 so I decide to level up a couple of job from level 1-11 ro so.

I play on the PC and POL enjoys critically failing every once in a while leaving me staring at my desktop ><

So I'm running around leveling up RDM. I was having a good time b/c I had all of the spells since i had whm at 21 and blm at 30. Plus my sword skill was maxed for my lvl 26 WAR. /Hurray.

<Enter Quadav> I'm hacking away with my sword and cast a cure b/c my HP were getting on the skinny side.

*pop*

/em stares at his desktop which is a nice screen shot of Shiva from FFX

"Crap!"

/em signs on as quickly as possible (which is still very slow...darn POL B4 shortcut upgrade).

So I find myself standing in South Dustyburg with no Quadav around me and full hp and mp. Upon closer examination, I realize that both my HP and MP are higher.

Yes, I leveled while logged off. ^^

With wishes of darkness and nightmares,
Your friendly neighborhood DRK, Ty

Well myself and some friends (Ferociousraven, Pokopiki, Vargas) would always commit suicide in the jungle after lvling. We would just go to kazham and change to a lvl 1 job. We would even do little plays for everyone who was lvling before our death.

This was just us trying to find a way to get to Jeuno, we just wanted to log off. So we decide to just go find a way to kill ourselves.

Anyways I see a party who just got a gob, so I go I wave at them and sit where all the action is. The gob throws his bomb (which I was expecting...after all how many times have one gotten hit by someone else's bomb or died from it) and damages the whole party, killing one of them, and leaving me without a scratch.

The WHM then proceeds to raise the fallen member, so he could get the exp from the kill. Anyways as he is floating in the air, the gob throws yet another bomb, kills him again and someone else in the party...and me without a scratch.

Ok I'll throw out an odd story of my own.

I was leveling rdm up because I heard it was a good sub for blm post 30. So I was around level 5 in West Ron. and found a party with a level 5 ranger.(Since I'm a taru it's hard for me to be the meat bag.) So we decide to kill beetles, since we were in a party and the rabbits were way too easy. So we tried to find a beetle and we looked everywhere and couldn't find one. Then we looked over the hill and all of West Ron. coming over the hill after this Tarutaru PLD the ranger pulled out his bow and snagged a beetle that had full health, but it hit him once and ran back after the tarutaru pld. We gave chase but we lost it.

After a while they started spawning again and we found a beetle and were running low on health during the fight, managed to beat it and, out of nowhere, our friend the run away beetle came back and finished us off, while we were healing. So we got killed by the farmer in a way. Oh well it was our fault and we managed to get the exp back and got up to level 7 before we logged. So in the end it was happy. Thank you for reading.

LOL! Oi these are good stories ^^

I'll share another one that is more sad than funny at first, and even though it ruined a couple of my play night's after it, I eventually was able to find some humor in it.

I was in my second ever party in the Quicksand Caves with a great PLD and DRG who really, really knew what they were doing. I was a few levels lower than they were and we were still chaining mobs for +200XP a fight.

Enter the Antican Signifier. I still didn't have the range of the cheesy AoE silence down, but usually standing at the far edge of my Cure range suffices. We were fighting on some stairs and they must make a difference, because even at the farthest spot I could still cure it got me with the AoE.

Alright, once no big deal. I wasn't carrying Echo's (I know, I know, I carry them now) so we toughed out that one and it's nearly dead. So it spams out another AS SOON AS the first wears off and then Poison II's the PLD. Great >< I'm thinking. We manage to kill it, but we're still silenced.

The PLD is steadily loosing health and I'm getting ticked off waiting for Silence to go away. I just stand there cusing IRL and watching the PLD's HP drop and drop.

The PLD falls to the ground and I just about loose it. I hate people dying, especially when it's my stupid fault for not being prepared.

Silence wears literally seconds later and I start Raising him. Then they point out something that just made me want to go back to WHM training: Benediction.

/sigh

I was so upset and worked over being silenced I forgot about Benediction not being a spell.

The PLD was thankfully very forgiving. Thanks Makk. ^^ You and Shira are some of the best.

Needless to say I carry *2* stacks of Echo's with me everywhere now.

Taru Deaths:

1. I was leveling in Yuhtunga Jungle and the place was way over-camped. What a suprise. Our Taru BLM is resting to gain his MP. His HP was full (300 HP or so). A near by Gob does bomb toss. *Splat* goes the Taru. D-E-D, ded taru in a single hit.

2. This one was in Yohator. I get an invite to a full PT with one member dead (taru blm). Bad sign to start with. The guy gets raised by our whm. As we begin to fight, someone trains a gob past us. The trainer dies only feet from out camp, so of course before we wrap up with the mandy, the gob aggroes on us. We..wait no... /I/ call for help (after chasing down the PT member who is tryin to zone the thing), taru dies again, with help the gob dies, we recoup.

New fight. Die mandy, die...Lizzie?! Um, why is the lizzie attacking the taru blm? Before the question can be answered, *splat* Dead taru. We zone and clear aggro etc. In recouping we find out the blm accidentally targeted (or cast an AOE, can't recall) the lizzie. No biggie, everyone does that at least once in their carrer.

The blm request that we continue to fight while he recovers from sickness. The puller grabs a mandy. On his return flight the mandy is pulled past the resting taru. *BIP* *POW* *SPLAT* Yes, the resting taru who died three times already died /again/ as the mandy nonchalanty kills the guy in two hits. I couldn't help but burst out laughing. Not because I find some sick pleasure in seeing tarus die, but more because of how terrible our luck had been. And just the fact that this little mandy (the same size as the taru) casually lays a couple of hits into the recovering taru blm as he passes by and kills him.

...Good times.

Okay,

Guess this is a newbie funny story. I was in Zeruhn mines after flagging the Darknight quest.

For those of you that don't know you are given a sword called Chaosbringer and have to kill 100 or more mobs before you can get the job.

Anyway, I'm in there killing em and this guy comes up examines me.

Newbie: You really shoudln't use a Greatsword you know.
Me: Why is that?
Newbie: It's too slow.
Me: Well I don't really have a choice. I'm doing the Darknight job quest.
Newbie: Oh. Can you tell me where the exit is? I'm lost.

I remembered another event very worthy of posting here. After my story you'll probably wonder how I could forget it, I know I said the same thing. lol

I'm in Bastok as a 26 PLD, can't remember why I was there, but I get asked to join a pt to fight the dragon for mission 2-3. I was like "**** yeah!" since I was rank 2 and needed to fight the Bastok dragon for rank 3 myself.

We have a pt of five, myself, MNK, WHM, 2 BLM. We run out to Pal Mines and start going over the battle plan. We decide to Elemental Seal + Sleep the dragon and take out the eye first. I know a lot of people go the other way, doesn't matter, results the same.

We zone into the battle-field, buff up and head in. Guess what? EVERYONE did the right thing and EVERYTHING went according to plan. Dragon's asleep, eye dies with the quickness. Mages rest while dragon sleeps. Here's where it gets interesting. Dragon wakes up, I voke it, we start in with the beat down. About 3 hits into the fight, I get petrified. Not for a few second, we're talking the ENTIRE battle.

The MNK 2hours and start's whooping it pretty well and doing his best to tank it. Needless to say, 1 dead MNK. The WHM catches aggro from trying to keep MNK alive, 1 dead WHM. The 2 BLM had been blasting it and back up healing, now they're spamming nukes like tarus on crack, and the dragon is ping-ponging between them as they trade aggro. Iím still petrified. After a bit, the dragon has about 10% hit points or so, and then BLM #1 goes down. Then BLM #2 goes down.

Then it turns on me, still petrified. It gets me down to about 30% hit points and petrify FINALLY wears off. I 2hour, spam my cures and hope for the best. Dragon dies when I was 2-3 hits from death and we ALL got our rank quest completion, even the dead guys. I was laughing so hard I think I ruptured something. The pt really did great, and everyone got a kick out of it, since we were successful. Again, I canít remember why I was in Bastok, I just know it wasnít for the rank mission, which just makes it even more funny to me for some reason. lol

Well, i have to post about this because to me it's simply amazing.

The redmage from my static and myself were wandering around Valkurm dunes waiting to go to gustav tunnel last night. We were helping out idiots that had agro'd several gobs or trained enemies and whatnot when Wulite, the rdm, says "hey, lets go camp the emperor for a little bit". I said to myself, "eh, probably wont show , but it's worth a shot".

Well, about 5 minutes in, Wulite is standing on one side of the hill and i'm looking the other way on the other side and he starts yelling in Ventrilo "hmm... get over here... FAST".

I ran over the dune and sure enough, i see in bright red letters "Vakurm Emperor". He had beaten 8 high level campers out of it using a dia pull. so i ran up, killed it, TH kicks in and we get a pin.

but wait, there's more.

After a good bit of celebration, we headed over to gustav tunnels and said "well, there's another nm here, lets camp this too". within 5 minutes the golden bat spawns and we dropped that thing and picked up a night cape too!

but wait, there's more!

On our last fight in Gustav, Goblinsavior Heronox spawned... being the good thf i am, i had to mug it...for 1119 gil! hooray!

i got killed, but it was worth the exictement!

but wait, there's more!

i got killed and just hit my HP because the party was over, sent some crystals to my other character in sandoria and started that character running out to the dunes to party. well, on my way out i see none other than Jaggedy ear Jack. Thf necklace all the way!

all in all a great night. i think Wulite is good luck folks. if you see him around, look for some notorious monsters to be following him ^^

Had a blast last night, getting my RL friend up to speed for the Rank 2-3 dragon fight.

After fooling around in Giddeus for about half an hour getting him a couple of Parana Shields, (and running around trying to find him when he got lost- **** excitable WARs ^^), we head off towards the area where the 3rd-tier yagudos are to find us a chest key for his Kazham pass.

We're about to head through the Hoo Mjuu spawn area, and I jokingly say; "Let's kill us a Hoo", having only seen him from afar on one occasion.

There are about 5 people there (as always), so I stop for all of 2 seconds to type: "This is around where he pops" when, lo-and-behold, he does just that, right in front of my face!! I nearly accidentally alt+tab trying to hit my ranged macro, when POW! my mate vokes him from behind me without a word.

Unable to convince my brain to both type and engage at the same time, i blurt out "NCIE WROK, Jye!" and we make short work of the filthy ******. We only got the Zealot's mitts, and had a crowd of campers cheering us on.

I felt pretty bad for the guys who had been there for ages, as I can relate to the pain of lucky punks "stealing" your NM when you've been tapping your voke macro for an hour.

We continue on, and get a chest key on our second Yag, head to Bastok, and make fun of the npc's there for awhile before logging.

It's the most fun I've had after ages of mindless levelling, just acting the tool in foreign cities and beating on unsuspecting NM's.

Burli definitely rings a bell, as does Tappytaru, but it's been a few months since that fight. All I know is that everyone did a really great job, especially under the circumstances. Only one of us had ever fought the dragon before if memory serves correctly. I was just watching the dragon run around slapping people while keeping my LS mates up to date on the battle. It was fortunate that no one HP or they would have had to fight it again. lol

I've been thinking recently that I want to fight the dragon with an all MNK pt. Food up, attack, then ALL use 2hour abilities, 4-5 on the dragon, 1-2 on the eye, WAR subs to swap voke. Maybe it would be a horrible disaster and we'd catch a beating, then again, maybe it would set a record. The key would be having good gear, DEX and ACC gear for Elv, STR for Mithra and Taru, etc. Just trying to think of interesting things to do in game.

Khaelus, er, you still remember who did the Bastok 2-3 mission with you? That story sounds awfully familiar lol...does Burli, or Tappytaru er ring a bell? =p


Toyo! Smiley: grin

Burli definitely rings a bell, as does Tappytaru, but it's been a few months since that fight.


I finally realise where I remember your name from Khaelus, I was the monk in that battle, and you're right we faired extremely well considering the circumstances Smiley: tongue That was a funny fight I have to say, should I have been laughing when everyone but the tank died? Smiley: lol

My monk is at 25 now.. I think if 6 monks did this thing we could set the record, I've seen a video of a 25 Galka Monk, soloing it, so it would definately be easy.

The PLD was thankfully very forgiving. Thanks Makk. ^^ You and Shira are some of the best.

Hey Burli, I have to say, we definitely wouldn't have made it without you and you went down bravely. You probably did about 50% of the damage yourself. Smiley: grin

If you want to be in the all MNK pt for it, let me know. I'd like to get someone to take a video of it too. Although I haven't played my MNK since I took it to 30 and picked up my advanced jobs, it's still my first love and I still have all my gear for it. One reason I haven't taken it further is the dreaded Ochiudo's Kote farming. That ONE piece of equipment for a 34 MNK is more than it's going to cost me to comlpetely outfit myself as a 50 PLD, barring +1 equips. I'd like to see the video of the Galka soloing it. I heard about people doing it but I've never seen it.

The other night, I was walking through the canyon, when i saw two lvl 10 taru blms lying face down in the dirt. I raise them, and kill a couple gobs that got to close to them just to hear them say "Oooooh, you're strong" and "ooooooh you are powerful" and once their weakness goes away I PL them a bit. After while, I tell them i am heading to the dunes to help PL my LS and asked if they wanted to come. One says yes, the other no.
The one who decides to go, was a Taru female. (i know, i was excited too). She's all worried about dying, since she just made lvl 10, and has not been outside of the canyon yet. I assure her, if she stays close to me, there is no way she can die. She relaxes and puts me on follow. We get through the peninsula just fine, and i assure her the hard part is over.
Now we are on the boat. We go up top, and i tell her to wait while i kill a crab and a fish. I notice when i checked her, that she had a fishing pole, so i told her she might as well fish while we are waiting for the ride to end. She is fishin, (not catching anything since her fishing is lvl 0) and i am going through my dance macros, and emote macros just flirting away. Just when i think she is starting to follow me, i see ***** catches a Monster!!!. I turn around to see a Sea Monk on the deck, and quickly hit my dia macro to pull it. what happens? I jump up and clap my hands. The sea monk hits my new freind once, and she is now down to 9 points. I quickly target her, and hit my Cure II macro. What happens? I start doin the the Taru dance. While i fumble to change macro palletes, the Monk hits her again, and she dies. One second later, we pull into Selbina.
My new freind is not so happy with me, and asks "Why were you standing there dancing while that Octopus was hitting me?" She is scared, and wants to go back to Windhurst. I assure her everybody comes here to level from 10-20, and this is the place she needs to be. She agrees to follow me to her waiting party. As we are walking through the dunes, I am typing to her and since i am unable to type without looking at the keyboard, i do not notice i just passed up a bogy. I did notice her last question was, "Will that big black thing kill me?" It did, and she deleveled.
Well, i did get her to my LS party, and was able to PL both her and my LS mates a few levels so I kinda made up for it, but my freinds still give me crap for it. As for the little taru female? I am still working my game. lol

ok, so about 2 weeks ago I was camping some NM's in Davoi, as usual the 4 gilfarmers were there (/search that area there always the same 4 people there -.-) So I decide to camp Poisonhand Gnadbad first, Gilfarmer #1 is fighting troopers and such while waiting for the nm, but trains too many. He runs for the ZOne, pop goes the nm, I fight, get the sitabaki *curses the NM* so I run to the archers knifes nm. On the way I find the farmer dead right at the path to zone so I ask him,

"want me to find a raise?"

~"Want to Buy Something?"
"errr, no, I just wanted to know if you wanted a raise."

~"I'm Sorry, I don't Speak any english."

"..."

~"Want to buy Something?"

*walks away to Hawkeyed (blah blah) meets gilfarmer #2*

~"raise friend @ zone plz"

"I'm a 62THF/31NIN, I can't raise but I offered to shout for him"

~"plz raise @ zone"

*NM pop, I toss dart faster than her charm, got myself an Archers Knife ^^*

I use my Trick Staff2 to warp to jeuno, 5 mins later the first guy is in jeuno, runs up to me and does a /trade. I accept the trade then he /tells me, 100kgil for the gi... I was thinking to myself, wha? So I cancel, enter moghouse and temp log to escape the very unusual day, later when I logged in I had my usual exp pt death by bomb drop; very exotic for 900+ ^.-

This was just us trying to find a way to get to Jeuno, we just wanted to log off. So we decide to just go find a way to kill ourselves.

Anyways I see a party who just got a gob, so I go I wave at them and sit where all the action is. The gob throws his bomb (which I was expecting...after all how many times have one gotten hit by someone else's bomb or died from it) and damages the whole party, killing one of them, and leaving me without a scratch.

The WHM then proceeds to raise the fallen member, so he could get the exp from the kill. Anyways as he is floating in the air, the gob throws yet another bomb, kills him again and someone else in the party...and me without a scratch.



gobbie bombs only hurt others when the gob drops it i think =)

Bah, If you think I'm rich you're sorely mistaken, I hardly ever have money to spend on other jobs/new equipment etc, because it all goes into just getting a level >.<

Now as for thiefs, Your job makes you money, ours makes us spend it to get anywhere Smiley: wink

Weirdest story ever--and the weirdest game glitch I have ever encountered...

A few months ago, during Izual's leaving party (pre-NIN days; I'd like to believe he died as a RDM and reborn as a NIN, lol), he had decided to do a one-man garrison in Gustaberg. Only problem was, there was another group being creamed at the time. So, not sure if this was stupid or not, but I assumed if you died and were raised, your level cap was taken off and you could not participate in garrison. I, being nice (or stupid), decided to heal them while the raise sickness wore off.

Suddenly...
"[some] Quadav hits Nedrea for # dmg"

I was kind of confused. Needless to say, I should not be aggroed by a quadav at level 41 in Gustaberg. So, I turned around to kill it, only to get the message:

"You cannot attack that target."

Somewhere, I realized it was one of the garrison quadavs. Even though the entire party doing garrison died, that quadav remained, and was intent on dealing damage on me. Blueice shouted "Try blaze spikes!"

Game: " [some] Quadav deals a critical hit!"
Me: -.-;;

So blaze spikes didn't work either. So while Izual and the rest were discussing as to how I could get rid of the quadav, I was busy being cured round the clock by 3 paladins and 2 mages (my blm has = weak defence ^^;). Finally, someone suggested that I just zone the thing.

I zoned the thing, and on party chat, I see, from one of my random healers:

"OMG, it's hitting ME!"

Apparently they had aggroed it too. :\ We all zoned out and back into the zone, but the pesky quadav was still running around, hitting one of the lvl 60 paladins, who only seemed mildly irritated... They were having the same problem--they couldn't attack it. It was just running around, virtually invicible, sword brandished, and terrorizing everyone. ^^;

At some point, we all just zoned out, and didn't zone back in until the entire party was clear on the other side. Apparently, our quadav got bored, and disappeared when we all left. :)

~~~

Another interesting story is that I was fishing in windurst when my static whm, Jylomulie, spotted a taru running around under the docks, in the ocean. I didn't really believe him at first, so I zoned in to investigate.

Lo and behold, there was a little taru running around. I asked if he needed help and how he ended up there, he replied, "Please help me ;_; I don't know what happened. Lag? XD"

Anyways, I warped II him out (sort of glad the spell is useful to someone...).

Oh man... Red Mage.... those were the days, eh? :) That was a fun afternoon/evening. I can testify to her first story. That quadav was a pain.

As for the second story, my guess would be that the taru's little legs were the reason he tripped on the quarter that i left on the docks (heads up for luck!).

this is for my good friend "Smallfoot" he wanted to get to rank 3 so i put a pt together for him but only myself and smallfoot were in giddeus as we are waiting there i go afk for all of maybe 5 minutes but didnt let him know, well.. poor guy i guess he was kinda bored anyways while i was afk he decided to
"/p hey maz i think i know a way to beat this battle by myself"
no reply for me since i am afk. so he enters the bcnm then the message pops up
"/p Using <invisible spell> now!!
i come back and see the message and type as fast as i can to try and get him to exit the battle, silence for a moment,
"/p hmmm >.> i guess invisible doesnt work like that... can you find me a raise?"
lol poor guy LS made fun of him for weeks but i guess you learn something new all the time it wouldnt have been so funny for me i guess if he hadnt been a taru lol oh well we killed the drg easy enough but was still good for a laugh

Lol Mazrim!
I have a new one in teh great old Quifm!
Ok today I leveled my Markmanship a bit with a Crossbow then I get a pt invite, so im thinking 'huh?!?', so I accept and see who invited me. A pt of lv. 20's hmmm seems like im gonna gimp their Exp as a 65 Thf/ 32Nin so I leave. 2 mins later, invite same guy (@.@). This time I accept and ask why the invited me, one guys says, oh, we need you for garrison, a lv. 65 should stomp all the enemies! (-.-;;)
After alittle explanation on how it works, the pt leader was embarrassed apologised and went on a suicide run with 4 other people, lasted a nice 5 mins before the tank 2hr'd, whm ran away and blm warped (poor other 2 jobs...).

Happy Farming =P

Well I have a prett funny story. About a month ago I was just hanging around town when I heard that KB had popped and Dice was fight em. So I wanted to go see him and left to Behemoth's Domain. When I got there I was watching the fight, I was standing a good deal away. Sense I am a 71 DRG I naturally had my wyvern out and he was about 2 steps ahead of where I was standing. Then all of a sudden I see my DRG fall to the ground dead and im like "WTF!?". Then I found out that KB had casted Meteor and if I had been standing just 2 steps closer I would be in worse shape then my Dragon was. I will avenge my dragon for having to pay with his life to see that beast!

Well I decided to do the PLD quests on my own and not bother my LS or other friends. I went to the Tombe after getting ready/cut-scene and all. Go there and there are already about 5 or 6 peeps there. There is this one Mithra that is select/voking EVERYTHING faster than any of the rest of us can even look over at the pop.

We all find out its a BOT >:( GRRRRRRR And its taking the Spook EVERYTIME!!!! I spent 4 hours trying to outvoke this F*&%^$ing thing. Finally the bot grabs the Bones first and I get lucky and hit the Spook with my voke while the rest just missed or hit other bones...I was like OMFG YES YES YES!!!! I kill it, and get the drop...I wave goodbye and start running back to SanD.......as I round a bend in E Ron, i now find out.....I was full!!!! I lost that **** ROOT!!!!!!!! ACK!!! Im so **********

Its was 2am so I log and come back the next day. MORE peeps there this time...I start moning/groaning on how many people are waiting already. A nice BLM tells me that he just sold a root at AH for 300 gil!!!!! :| Im like wuuuuUUUt? They all start laughing and say go buy one idiot!!! So i did...LOL Its wonderful being a noob and wasting your weekedends isn't it...SIGH

Another funny part was when a lev ??? dude gets the Spook one time, and one of the Mithra says "I hope that idiot dies"...then whatdoya know...he DID! O_o srry man...not funny, but yeah its funny.

cheers,
