I haven't been on since sometime early last semester, I think. I've been so busy with school and socializing, that I simply haven't had time. To be honest, I'm not even in my dorm room long enough to get on the internet most of the time.

Has someone possibly been watching some Danny Phantom, more particularly, the episodes "Fanning the Flames" and "Pirate Radio?"

9.0

A classic game on a decent game engine (I prefer the E2 engine over the E3 engine). Good storyline, puzzles are just the right difficulty, and fun to play. I especially enjoy the format the save games are in.

I think they screwed up by using Intel processors. They should have used AMD's, or at least gave the end user the ability to choose which of the two to use.

They spam for the same reason people rob banks and commit murders: Because the potential benifits are more important to them than the potential losses. Or because they just want to, and don't care about either.

You know, if you're insecure enough to still care what TM says, you're no better than him, and it shows a lack of conviction on behalf of your own beliefs. So there.
The only thing is, I don't care what TM says. I was just pointing out what seemed obvious to me. I'm still kind of in awe that nobody seemed to make the same connection that I did. Besides, even if I was insecure, I'd still be better than him, becuase I don't deal with it by insulting people for no reason (I only insult when there is a reason). So there.

Yeah, but usually the insulter cares whether or not they get insulted in return.

I still think it's funny (and pathetic) that TM feels the need to "prove himself" by insulting everything that walks by. Yeah yeah, we know you hate everyone and everything, we know you love to insult people for stupid reasons, just shut up already TM.

This coming from someone who is so insecure as to require insulting everyone at every chance he gets? Reminds me of the small guy in the bar, always picking fights because, deep down, he's insecure and has to prove himself.

Last thing you ate: 3 fried chicken strips, with salt.

What you're wearing right now: Blue t-shirt, blue jeans with a hole on the right knee.

Describe the room you are in: Cube-shaped, has white walls, a roof, windows, and a door. White tile floor, with two desks, two PC's, a TV, an AC/DC poster, and some posters of scantily-clad women (because my roomate has little self-control).

I don't offend others for merely my personal amusement. A part of me hopes that someone will read my ranting and stop doing whatever it is I'm ranting about. But, for the most part, I just don't care. Also, I don't use my freedom of speech solely to offend others. If I was so offensive, don't you think I'd have gotten some hate mail by now?

Besides, remember this quote?

It has been discussed before, but anyways...

I'm boycotting GameFAQs (their message boards actually) becuase they're extremely restrictive on free speech, and because the mods are power hungry. Once, I was having an argument with someone, and ended up explaining something or another. The extremely simple and clear explanation ended with "If you don't understand that, go beat your head in the door, and try reading it again." The mods decided that my statement was "offensive," and promptly deleted it. And it's not limited to me. Many people have had posts deleted for trivial things.

The only problem I've had so far is the 2.5MB file size limit, which I can work around (split .rar files). I have to say, they are definitely less restrictive when it comes to people's opinions.

Is family starvation a common occurrence with you?
Didn't think so. Now get out there and do some good in the world.
It's not too common, but we have gone without at some points. Ever have to eat only vegetables that you grew for an entire month? Ever look in your cupboard to only see a single can of peas? Didn't think so. The entire income of my immediate family is just enough to live off of (approximately $10,000 a year). Besides, are you going out and doing good in the world, or are you just sitting around complaining and saying everyone else should?

quote:
How do they earn it? By being good little boys and girls whenever you're watching?
No, by working (well, of course they'll have to behave, but not only when I'm looking). If they want to get that new toy or videogame, they'll have to do chores to earn it. When they turn 16 and want a new car, they'll get a job and pay for it. That way, they'll know the value of money, and they won't get a free ride. Then, when I die, they will evenly split whatever is left of my fortune with all the other members of my family.

quote:
You can't earn a fortune in any fair sense of the word. What you can do is get lucky in location and birth.
So If I happen to work hard, spending my own free time inventing something that revolutionizes the world, and I get rich off of it (this is assuming I'm not already wealthy), then I didn't earn it? How is that right?
