Halo Reach: Booted for Accidental Betrayal, Banned From Accidentally Betraying

Alright… Bungie has got to do something about this.  I have been booted from too many games over stupid accidental betrayals.

If you get one or two betrayals while playing Halo Reach online in a fairly short amount of time (couple hours) the system remembers that you have betrayed your own team and for the rest of the time that you are playing, and if you accidentally betray someone on your team, they will ALWAYS have the option to boot you!  This is F!#&%ing retarded!!!  Bungie needs to do something about this soon.  There are too many jack asses out there that just want to boot people just because they can. The problem is when someone on your teams boots a decent player for an accidental betrayal, your team is now at a great disadvantage and chances are you will now loose the whole game because you are out-manned.  I don’t want my team to lose a good player because of one bad grenade throw or rouge rocket.

Can’t bungie recognize if you are shooting your own team deliberately?  They can track how many bullets you shoot and where you shot your opponents (i.e. “killed with a headshot”). So, they should be able to recognize if you have a high percentage of your bullets hitting your own team compared to your opponents.  If someone is trying to kill their own teammate constantly, they I say, yes, ALWAYS give your teammates the option to boot you.  But if you are getting an accidental betrayal once in a while, let it slide, or reset the clock on it more often!

I think a good way to solve this is just put a 2 betrayal cap on all new games.  If you betray someone more than once in one game, the second time you do it, give them the option to boot you.  At least that way if you start a new game and get one accidental betrayal on a game you are trying to win, you don’t get booted.

Most peole are playing to have fun and win, not to get kicked out of a game for a bad grenade toss.  Bungie needs to handle this situation along with many other things for Halo Reach real soon!

Severe Intestinal Pain After Working Out, from Protein Shakes

For a few years I have been going to the gym and drinking protein shakes before and after work outs.  Durring this time I was pretty much only drinking Muscle Milk and Cytogainer.  I love these shakes and never had any problems with them.  I recently switched the protein powder because I was able to get a different brand for free, so I thought I would give it a try and save a bunch of money.  (Protein powder is not cheap!)

I typically just have 1 serving of protein powder before and after I work out mixed with about 12oz. of water.  I started getting pretty severe and painful cramps in my lower intestinal area later at night after having a couple servings of the new protein powder and working out in the evenings.  Initially I didn’t think that it was the protein powder that was causing these cramps because they wouldn’t start until a few hours after having the shakes, and sometimes they wouldn’t start until late in the night.

It doesn’t seem to hurt my stomach at all, it’s more in the lower intestinal area, and feels like a sharp pain (like a knife)  that will be there for about 10 seconds, then fade.  This will continues on and off for a couple hours then goes away completely.  I am not sure if I might be allergic to this new protein or what?  It feels almost like its gas bubbles that are causing the pain, but nothing seems to be able to get past, and I can’t/don’t need to go to the bathroom.

Could it be that there is more Whey in this protein than the last one that I was using and my body doesn’t like it?

If anyone know what causes this or has experienced the same thing, please feel free to post comments below.  Thanks!
