friendly contest?

so, some of us are gamers here. When i say gamer i mean all forms, larp, table top, console, pc whatever. And this comm is the only one i really participate in day to day. So i think it'd be great to have a little contest everyone could do, if theres something else people wanna do go for it, i'm all about any kinds. Heres what i was thinking. This comm has a simpson's theme to it [the good simpsons not the stupid human ones], and whats better than killing zombies? absolutely nothing. so go to the simpson website and shoot some zombies, post a screenshot. heres mine. I went for that number for the sequencial order of numbers.

A discussion in nerdliness....

I was reflecting on my past gaming experiences while rolelaying one afternoon. I came upon a memory that had the greatest impact on my emotions. It was one of the most powerful sessions I have ever experienced. Without further ado, I give you the set up and the scene:

The game was AEG's L5R, in which I had made a Unicorn clan Bushi. My character was not your typical samurai. He was the champion of the common folk. He valued their labor and sacrifice for the empire. Also, he was a great diplomat in the imperial courts. Nori(my character) cemented an alliance with the rival Lion clan, who helped in an assault on the Crab clan. In this war,Nori lost his left hand in a duel. He was victorious in the battle, but he had made great enemies. One of which was a wicked and corrupted shugenja (wizard) who bound and Oni to me. It was an Oni that bore my name, and it was corrupting my characters soul. This Oni captured a female samurai who Nori had fought in battle with, and had affection for. The Oni ended up killing her in a ritual, that summoned something even worst than it. My party defeated the creature, and the Oni was starting to flee. The only weapon nearby was a bow, and the oni was fastly escaping. He grabbed the bow, and began trying to string an arrow with his only remaining hand. When the ghost of the departed samurai's hand manifested on my own. She said her spectral goodbye's, and wished me good fortune with my aim. Nori let loose the arrow, it was a direct hit to the Oni's cranium. I rolled the dice for damblage,which resulted in the highest possible damage you could roll. This game uses ten sided dice, I rolled 10 tens out of 12 dice.

What is your most memorable gaming experience? It could be any format of gaming.
