    I've got my own challenge for you, guys. Today, we're going to start doing a new thing every day, and then we're gonna talk about it. A daily quest, if you want to think of it like that.

    It can be almost anything. Watch this video, play this game, listen to this song, eat this food, do this activity, whatever. Then, we all synergize and have something in common to talk about for the day.

    I'll pick someone else each day to choose the next daily thing, but if they don't post one after a while or I don't select someone, anyone can choose. Perform the task and say something about it to earn a point. The scoreboard will be at the bottom of this post. You can still earn a point if you complete the thing just before the current one. Also, you can earn multiple points for the same thing if it hasn't been updated a full 24 hours after you completed it once.

    I'll also keep this post updated with the latest thing for your convenience, but make sure the dates match. Otherwise, check the latest posts for today's thing.

    Nice idea!

    I tried knowing I have the flexibility of a plank. I couldn't even get my foot up to my shoulders.

    I also cant sit cross-legged so I honestly had no chance!

    What's the story there? I game almost exclusively with my legs crossed.

    And of course, I can get both feet up there. I've even done it on camera for something in high school.

    There is no story really, I'm just not very flexible. I've just never been very nimble - I cant touch my toes, and I cant sit cross-legged. I envy people like you who can do it so easily as well!

    Well, that's it for day one. Since I'm such a nice guy, I'll allow one day extra for anyone to complete a thing and talk about it for a point.

    Can't get my foot anywhere near my dang head. I can almost touch it to my chest, but not quite.

    I decided on Age of Empires II. Entering the resource cheats over and over again was basically my inspiration to learn how to type as a kid. That was before I knew how to ctrl+a, ctrl+c, ctrl+v, of course.

    And then there's the car. Nothing's more satisfying than unleashing a hundred rapid-firing cobras on your enemy's douchy amount of villagers.

    Yesssssss.

    Does playing as Oddjob in Goldeneye count? ;)

    For about half an hour I loaded up Star Wars: Jedi Knight: Jedi Academy on my PC. That game is very fun when it comes to cheats.

    Press the ~ key to open up the console, then input the following:

    helpusobi1 (enable cheats)
    setforceall 5 (give yourself all Force powers at maximum level)
    giveall (get all weapons)
    god (optional god mode)

    Then you can fight an army of storm troopers, reborn soldiers or anything you like with the following command:

    npcspawn <enemy>

    Fighting an army of reborn is pretty fun. :)

    I've got both feet covered. What's today's thing, cheat codes? Caesar 3: right click a water well and ALT+C until the man no longer threatens death.

    "Frustrate their knavish tricks."

    My favorite line from it. Super British.

    Touching both my heels to my head is my limit.

    Using a shield in the Rainbow Six beta is practically a cheat code right?

    Rare Replay has a rewind function built into most of its old games. I haven't used it yet except for accidentally squeezing the trigger once and discovering it. I'll play some Battletoads or something tonight using that as a cheat and see how far past the Turbo Tunnel I can get.

    Nope! Remember, now you have one day to listen to the British National Anthem and post about it to earn a point.

    Today's Thing #4

    I might have to leave the house for this one.

    used will pick the next thing.

    I'll see what I can find on my lunch break today.

    I ate a toasted ham, cheese, tomato sandwich. Despite it being so common, I never really eat them.
