A thieving roommate and a "haunted" Xbox.

Warning:Long, but totally worth it!

During freshman year of college I roomed with my cousin and our friend Dan. The three of us happened to be quite the marijuana enthusiasts and enjoyed smoking…a lot. As great a luxury cannabis is, it wasn’t cheap, especially to three college kids. So naturally, when we wanted to smoke together we’d all chip in an equal sized nug so no one ended up getting short-changed and to obviously save a little cash here and there. As time went on, Dan began to run out of money due to his constant smoking. No money=no weed. So what went from rolling a spliffs everyday suddenly became smashing bowls and scraping resin off the shards of glass and mixing it with tobacco to get high. In our very small and cramped room, I had a mason jar filled with a baggie of my weed hidden in a spot that NO ONE (I thought) knew about. After class one day, I wanted to sit back and enjoy a smoke when I pulled my stash out of the hiding spot to find that the weed was missing. Instantly, I knew Dan did the dirty deed. My cousin wasn’t struggling too bad financially at the time so it couldn’t have been him. But before I pointed any fingers, I decided to wait it out and be 100% positive.

A thieving roommate and a "haunted" Xbox

Warning:Long, but totally worth it!

During freshman year of college I roomed with my cousin and our friend Dan. The three of us happened to be quite the marijuana enthusiasts and enjoyed smoking…a lot. As great a luxury cannabis is, it wasn’t cheap, especially to three college kids. So naturally, when we wanted to smoke together we’d all chip in an equal sized nug so no one ended up getting short-changed and to obviously save a little cash here and there. As time went on, Dan began to run out of money due to his constant smoking. No money=no weed. So what went from rolling a spliffs everyday suddenly became smashing  bowls and scraping resin off the shards of glass and mixing it with tobacco to get high. In our very small and cramped room, I had a mason jar filled with a baggie of my weed hidden in a spot that NO ONE (I thought) knew about. After class one day, I wanted to sit back and enjoy a smoke when I pulled my stash out of the hiding spot to find that the weed was missing. Instantly, I knew Dan did the dirty deed. My cousin wasn’t struggling too bad financially at the time so it couldn’t have been him. But before I pointed any fingers, I decided to wait it out and be 100% positive.

When Dan came back after class, I noticed he was more nervous than usual and didn’t make eye contact with me when we were shooting the shit . Red flag 1. Per usual, he’d throw his jacket on the floor, like he did with any other piece of clothing, and started to make ramen noodles. While he was busy, I slowly lifted the jacket with my foot to reveal the top of a baggy with a few nugs poking out of the inside pocket. Red flag 2. I’m not a big fan of thieves, so I decided to get my revenge on Dan in a very petty way. Just to let you all know, Dan is a very gullible human being and tends to believe anything, even if it’s a little far fetched…

One day, my roommates and I planned on having a Netflix night with a bunch of our friends later on in the week. Me being me, saw this as an excellent opportunity to do something devilish, but “What devilish thing should I do?” At the time, there was an Iphone app called Xbox Smartglass that had just come out (I think). Basically, one would log in their Xbox Live account information, connect their phone to the Xbox, and control basic things like direction (think directional pad) and clicking the “A” or “B” buttons.

With this newfound information, I knew exactly what I was going to do, but had to bank on doing it right.

The Netflix night comes and all 10 of us are outside finishing up a spliff before we head back in. I, however, excused myself early to go to the “bathroom”. During this time, I quickly went inside my room, turned my Xbox on, connected my phone to Smartglass, and left it on my bed (it would disconnect if you were too far away). A few moments pass and we are all jam-packed into the room. Dan and I had bunk beds on the right side of the room. He had the top bunk and I had the bottom. My cousin, Gucci, had his own bed on the left side of the room. Everyone else was squeezed in the middle. What’s perfect about my position is that I could conceal my phone very well with no one being the wiser.

Dan had the controller and began sifting through possible movies to watch. I started off with clicking to the right, left, up, and down every so often making it appear that Dan was fucking around with the controller.

“Yo Rivy, I think your controller is busted.” said Dan.

I obviously told him it wasn’t and that he’s scrolling through everything too fast.

So I continued to fuck around more and more until I started moving everything faster and faster. Naturally people were like, “Dan! Stop being a dick!” He responded by letting go of the controller to show that it wasn’t him and everything was indeed moving on it’s own. Everyone was confused. This being the right moment, I stopped for a few seconds….then slowly shifted down to the “Horror” section, scrolled to the right until I saw the movie conveniently titled “Hell” and clicked on it.

Everyone screamed and hollered. Dan jumped out of his bunk, nearly crashing into everyone, and ripped the plug right out of the  Xbox. As he turned back, I could see the look of true fear in his eyes. Everyone was scared shitless and the commotion caught the attention of the RA. It was painfully hard trying not to laugh during this whole ordeal.

Our room was the talk for the entire week. Dan was going around telling everyone, “Yo man, our Xbox is fucking haunted/possessed…”

From friends, to classmates, RA’s and even the hall janitor, Dan told EVERYONE. He was so infatuated and scared, I decided to keep going with it. It got so crazy that Dan, and I swear to God I’m not lying, would talk directly to the Xbox as if it was a person. He’d ask it questions like “Who are you?” “Are you a kind spirit?” “Can you communicate through other forms of technology?”

This was absolute gold.

Before you know it, I started communicating with Dan by typing on the keyboard for Xbox live messaging. I got more daring and wrote words like:

“Dan”….”Death”….”Car”…”Demon”…”Hell”.

I also wrote places he would be that day, clothes he was wearing, people he knew, etc.

He was too busy freaking out that he never took a moment to logically think about the whole situation. Never in my wildest dreams could I imagine pranking someone this bad….especially with an inanimate object. I do want to note that my cousin found out about my prank/revenge due to the fact that he saw “Smartglass Connected” pop up on the Xbox dashboard. I told him everything and he promised not interfere and encouraged me to continue on :).

One day after class, I walked into my room to find Dan sitting upright on his bunk staring into space. I asked him what’s up and he went on about how scared he was and how he believed someone was hacking the Xbox and sending him threatening messages. He also believed that whoever was doing it was also hacking the webcam too (lol). Dan went on and on and even considered calling the cops (yikes).  Realizing how out of hand this was getting, I stopped fucking with him for a little while.

Overall, I kept my vengeful prank a secret for a few months before I finally told him. He was livid at me and firmly believed someone….or something was out to get him. But he did admit to stealing my weed and soon paid me back. A word to the wise, never steal from someone, you never know what appliance will become possessed and haunt you ;)

TL;DR: College roommate stole weed from me. I got my revenge by making him believe our Xbox was haunted.

my best thrift store find was an xbox 360. there was no tag on it so the cashier just came up with a price, and i got the thing for $6. works perfectly, came with a controller and all the cables, even still had some dudes xbox live account logged in, which leads me to believe it was donated by some pissed off mom or wife.

I landed a box of Magic cards from a pissed off wife in the donations area once, it happens.  I think a lot of mothers dump their kids stuff when they go to college, too.  There’s always good nerd finds in September.

  • Bucky and Steve having box set evenings, just streaming entire seasons of GOT, marathoning the entirety of Star Wars (4,5,1,2,3,6, because Bucky had looked it up on the internet), getting pissed that Firefly was cancelled when they went looking for the rest of the season. 
  • Bucky ordering 20 pizzas online because the novelty of being able to do so was just too much, ‘holy shit, I’d never have left the house if we could have done this in the 30’s’. 
  • Ugly tears into tubs of ‘Ben and Jerry’s’ over everything 'programming just wasn’t this emotional back in the day, what are they doing to my feelings?’
  • 'Holy shit, can they show this on television?’
  • Bucky sets up an xbox live account,’WhothefuckisBucky’, and trolls 12 year olds on Battlefield by making improbable head shots. 
  • 'Steve, Steve, you’ve got to come over here.’ *crying* 'Have you heard this guy, holy shit, he must be like 12, holy shit son, we were in the army and I’ve never heard someone swear like this!’ *doubles over laughing*
  • Bucky snapchatting Steve from the top of the White House. 
  • 'Holy shit, Bucky where are you?’ 'Well, I went for a walk and decided I needed some exercise’ 'So you climbed the White House?’ 'Idk man, i felt I did them a favour, the security is just awful’ 'Bucky, what the fuck?’ 'Sorry, Steve, gtg, secret service finally found a way onto the roof, see you later, I’ll buy milk on the way home’
Be loud and obnoxious while I'm playing with my friends? Enjoy your "glitchy" of Internet!

(warning: long story)

What you need to know:

  • I am the ONLY person in my house who knows how to PROPERLY use a computer
  • I have a little brother who was 12 at the time and is 13 now.

ok, so ian? all i knew about him up to right now was that he was friends with phil in like 2008 and he's in that florida vlog. BUT THEN i noticed at 1:40 in dvp kinect sports that he's the third xbox live account on their console, which implies a more recent relationship & possibly with dan as well. so do you know how phil & ian met? and if they're still friends?

Ian’s been a consistent known entity in Dan and Phil’s social circle. According to Dan in one of the vyou responses, Ian used to come over and watch horror movies with them when Dan and Phil lived in Manchester (link). There’s a liveshow from 2012 (link; relevant part around 50 minutes in) where Dan and Phil were visiting them and held Ian’s daughter, with Ian’s wife also there. You can also see the baby (at that point a toddler) in the corner of one of Dan’s photos on pancake day 2015 (link), which proves that Ian and his family do also visit Dan and Phil at least once in a while. 

Even more recent events indicate they’re still close, since that’s where Dan and Phil went over NYE 2016. At that point, Ian’s wife’s instagram was public and it was obvious that Dan and Phil were there based on Dan posting pics of the same activities as Ian’s wife and daughter. (But it circulated tumblr and she privated her IG account very quickly.)

(As far as how they met - school, I’m pretty sure!) 

Okay but imagine Matt being the greatest FPS player like ever but he meets this one player who keeps camping the spots Matt frequents the most and killing him. And not like once or twice, but like to the point Matt is yelling at his tv and throwing controllers. And after the last time, he’s had enough and decides to track this person through their Xbox Live Account and finds that it’s his suuuuper hot neighbor he’s been crushing on for weeks and hasn’t had the courage to talk to him. So he invites the hot neighbor over and they make the most killer team in said game.

Mello only does it cause he loves hearing Matt get mad when he kills him.

A headache pounds in the back of your head as you fight to stay concentrated on the video you’re supposed to be editing. Without looking away from the footage, you reach out for your now lukewarm coffee and take a swig. It is the most god awful thing you’ve ever tasted, but it’s caffeine and it will be enough to get you through the day as long as Adam doesn’t have too many video appearances up his sleeve for you. E3 set all of you back quite a bit and you have spent the past few days scrambling to catch up with the workload even a little bit. You groan as Bruce slides you another flash drive to add to the growing stack on your desk.

“Demo Disk.” He explains, “Not a lot of censoring to do this time.” You scribble Demo Disk on a sticky note and add it to the top of your monitor, making it the 8th video you have to edit before Friday. You do your best not to outwardly show your annoyance. Bruce pats you on the back twice and heads back to his desk to do his own work. With a deep sigh, you pull your headphones over one ear and get back to work.
