    I look at the time repeatedly then scream at my comp to load faster, im 20 minits late for my clan match and i started loading 10 minits before it began.

    (not really, mine loads in about 10 secs :) )

    Umm, i dunno whats wrong with your PCs (i built mine for £400 (thats 762.52 U.S. dollars for those too lazy to convert it) about 4 years ago, so its getting pretty old now...)

    my pc loads source in about 5 or 6 seconds

    ah yes, good ol humanity there =P
    thats a fair point that basically every male over 12/13 would scratch their balls =P
    another time blower i have been prone to lately: i found this mini soccerball which i just kick around in my study whilst waiting for CS:S to load a map =)

    I usually just grab my electric-guitar and play it (while CS:S is loading). Im rockin the shit out of the house those times XD
    But those times I only play very difficult accords/songs so that later on, my fingers could be faster while Im in the game... and guess what >__> IT WORKS!

    Or sometimes I just do some ninja-ass-kikcing movements, and punch the shit out of my computer until it loads... lol, I once punched the CD-ROM so hard that it went inside the computer XD It was brand new and wasnt fixed to its place by any screws... so yeah I t just flew into the inside and broke some stuff, but nothing too serious.. just disconnected the power supply or something like that... and unpluged a RAM card xP I laughed so hard... because it looked exactly like dominos: I hit the first thing, and then that pushes something that then breaks another... at that time we used to be more wealthy and it was no problem fixing it
    (ppl came to fix it for free, since my dad worked in a company that time) I sometimes watch SouthParl on my phone when CS:S is like downloading 1000files
    (audios, map, and models...etc you know those shits they use to make you download like mp3s and such)
