We all know the feeling we had when we were kids waiting for Christmas Day to arrive. Some of you might have the same feeling between missions during the Heist, so I have made a small survival guide for all of you. I hope you can use it in those depressing moments wink

http://www.tinypilot.com/misc/mh/guide/internal.jpg

If you don't want to leave the forum while waiting for a new mission, there are many topics you could visit. These entertaining and interesting topics are all waiting for YOU.

Show where you live on the MH user map.
Have a go at the always popular "The Poster Below Me Game"

Got some applications you don't use? Give away is the answer.
Everybody loves movies. Try the movie game.
Destroy the post above game is a new classic on the MH forums.
Got an urge to write stories? Join the 3 words story game.
Do you dare to share your secret love?
Everybody loves their Mac. What Mac was the first one you had?
We all got a desktop on our Mac, but they can be very different. Show yours!
Are Mac users arrogant? Take the test.
Do you like to take photographs? Share your best ones.

Oh and don't forget to help artist-illustrator.net with his ugly but beloved keyboard.

http://www.tinypilot.com/misc/mh/guide/external-youtube.jpg

YouTube is one of my favorite places to kill time. The amount of funny and great videos is massive. Here are some of my favorite ones.

Soccer might be an European thing, but enjoy these street soccer players!
Even more insane "soccer". Full time Ninjas perhaps?
While we are at it. Urban Ninjas, Team Ryouko FTW!
The legs on this cat are just cute.
Ultimate stealth cat. Almost a MacHeist agent worthy
Sneezing panda. Now in slow motion as well.
Best funny cat movie ever. Oh and the song is so cute!
Classic TV news bloopers
And even more classic TV news bloopers. These are just brilliant!
Extreme Photoshop makeover, something to think about.
Well i can't help laughing, when babies are laughing.
But babies can also be evil in a cute way. Watch out for Charlie!
Most realistic dream a dog ever had?
Dog with split personality.
Not sure what is wrong with this dog.
Ozzy Impersonator - Sharon is judge - awesome situation.

http://www.tinypilot.com/misc/mh/guide/external-paper.jpg

After the great mission 2 during MacHeist3 you might have become addicted to paper folding? Well don't fear, some killer links are here.

Scroll down to the bottom to get some awesome paper monster templates.
Killer paper templates for all sorts of scary stuff. Great collection.
Just a bunch of awesome paper templates.
Love those old arcade machines? Well now you can build your own in paper.
Not paper folding but close. Poster making fun.
You might have seen the collages here on MH. Go make your own it's dead easy.

http://www.tinypilot.com/misc/mh/guide/external-photos.jpg

A clever person once said - a picture is worth a thousand words. While this saying might not give you a thousand points, we can always enjoy some funny, pretty, historical or odd images.

A huge collection of photos from the SF earthquake in 1906 - click thumbs a couple of times for high res
Awesome b/w photos of London and New York (not old times)
A site with amazing images from far away places. The site is a work of art as well.
Some of the most amazing wild life shots I have ever come across.
Amazing photos manipulated a "bit". The thin lines in the bottom are the galleries.
These portraits are just breath taking and mysterious. Personal is my favorite gallery.
This site shows some very interesting night images of the "spooky" part of the west.
Norman Koren has a lovely gallery with a big variation in motives.
Cute animals gallore. Animals in all sort of funny situations.
DRB's collection of the worlds strangest vehicles.
DRB's collection of abandoned amusement parks. Spooky stuff.
If you're into art and illustrations, check out this collection.
Dusso is one of my all time favorite matte painters. Awesome galleries.
Photo realistic paintings from Helnwein. Some creepy stuff in there, now you're warned.
Photo manipulation of animals. These images are just freaky and bizzare.
Mind blowing collection of strange photos and manipulations. Very special mood.
If you have never seen any of Mark Rydens paintings, now is the time. Scary but pretty.
One girl and a lot of self portraits. Some of it can be a bit disturbing, so now you are warned.
A collection of VERY strange clouds.

http://www.tinypilot.com/misc/mh/guide/external-random.jpg

What would a list like this be without some random jokes and funny stuff? We all need a laugh from time to time, perhaps some of these links can help.

The world famous Stabler song.
One of THE most comprehensive glossary for true pirates.
USA got a new president, but that doesn't mean that dressing up Bush is not fun anymore.
Bored.com can cure most problems.
The Top 10 of Wulff Morgenthaler cartoons.
Some very odd laws not many know about.
Awesome chat conversations. Some are not really for children so please consider that a warning.
Best phone prank ever?
Cats that look like Adolf Hitler aka Kitlers.
Happy Tree Friends - Cute but very violent, under 18 not allowed.
B3ta is just random crap gallore - love it!
Top stories from F*** My Life. Priceless stories. May contain adult language.

http://www.tinypilot.com/misc/mh/guide/external-avatar.jpg

Haven't found the right avatar yet? Perhaps you could not use any in the donation center? Well don't fear, online avatar creators are here.

Create My Picture - A favorite!
