Do you wish that the year would be something like 1904-1994 instead of 2004?

I don't think 1944 would be a very good year to live in. Especially in Europe.

I like classic movies, in general, more than the newer crap. A lot of the movies that have come out in the last few lears are mindless and horrbly stupid. Only a few of them are entertaining in any way. In any case, I am going to make a rare exception to my general regimen of not watching new movies in order to watch Kill Bill volume two. That movie will rock. The first one was great, a true logical progression for the director of such great movies as Reserviour Dogs and Pulp Fiction, and I can't wait to get the volume one DVD on tuesday.

Hellboy is good, though it is not very historicaly accurate. Then again, it is rather silly that I am complaining about who is in the Nazis' employ when there are daemons in the movie.

Lets see, just for example. This post is a pointless poll and in order mage's reply to princess Ruth he double posted. Does that make him a spammer?

How can they even compare jeff's games to stuff like Collapse and Bejewled!? unlike those Jeff's games are original ideas (with the obvious exception of avernum, but those are based off Jeff's original ideas) without the thousands of games exactly like them. Game house games are boring, with the same things over and over only faster each time. Jeff's games have variety and strategy. Jeff should have gotten more of a mention than just one link.

Phynex, magic immunity does not cost zero for you. It should cost 36.

quote from the site: The cost of a resistance or immunity is reduced by a number equal to the following values:
Magic: Level + 4 * Mage Rank

magic immunity is 70 base.
My level is 6 and my mage rank is 7 so (6+4)*7=70 and 70-70=0 right?

Here is my character:

Name: Phynex the Liche
Type: Undead
Level:6 (60)
health: 49 (49)
Speed: 12 (270)
Mage: 7 (200)
Magical immunity (0)
Cold immunity (21)

Phynex's skelital frame is draped with a neon orange robe which is tattered, frayed and threadbare. He carries an iron staff and wears an iron crown set with stones of onyx, hematite, and obsidian. The only thing that keeps his bones from crumbling to dust is the spells he keeps on them. Unfortunately, any armor besides the robe would disrupt these spells. After his dungeon was destroyed by some pesky adventurers he vowed that he would find and kill them. Now he does odd jobs while traveling the empire in search of vengance.

Of course there is no absolute morality. Morality is based on the perception of the individual, which changes throughout life and is different for every person. If there were an absolute morality everyone would tend twoard that and always would have. Since things have changed completely many times throughout time then we know that there is no absolute morality.

I once got a Vahnatai keeper to run out of mp. He cast spark or something with his last mana, something i've never seen before or since. But i was concentrating on the demons and stuff he'd summoned so i didnt think about it then.

My philosophy comes in three segments

1. Never let morals get in the way of doing what is right. I percieve 'what's right' to be whatever is best for the human race as a whole. A cure for a disease is worth the lives of those who would have died because of it. I would sacrifice the lives of a thousand people if a thousand and one would live instead. The worth of a technology is how many lives would be positively effected by the development of that technology. I would sacrifice half the humans on the planet including myself and my family for a viable form of faster than light travel. Faster than light travel would open vast area to settle and incredible recources. It would be more than worth the trade off.
2. perception and thus logic is inherently limited. for example: prove, from earth that the moon has another side to it. You cant because you have to go there and see it. You can logicaly reason that since the moon has one side then it must have another, however you only percieve the moon as having a near side. The moon might be an optical effect. But you would reason that the moon causes the tides! Wich is an example of cause and effect. Cause and effect is inherently flawed because you dont know which causes wich. Either way might be flawed because both effects might come from a different cause. The tides might cause the moon, or both could be the effects of disruptions in the earth's magnetic field, causing a slight bending of space wich would refract light and have a slight gravitational effect. You never know. You can therorize about the nest in the tree all you want but to be sure you have to climb the tree. Similarly my sacrifices in the first part of my philosophy were made blindly. There is a chance that among the half of the humans i sacrificed there was one who would have invented faster than light travel if left to him or herself. Similarly, one of the ones I sacrificed might have become a mad scientist and made a doomsday weapon that destroyed all life on earth. I may have made either a supremely stupid decision, sacrificing half the world for nothing or a supremely smart one in saving half the world and getting interstellar travel. Eventualy it all comes down to perception of the individual.
3. "God" is merely an abstraction of human thought. If someone percieves that there is a God and acts in it's name then it is as if that God actualy did that action. Thus those who belive in a god may influence the world in the way that god would have wanted if it existed separate from the conciousness of sentient biengs. Gods only exist as long as there is evidence of the involvement of thier ideas in human works and gods only have power through those who percieve them. Thus each goal is like a god. Anyone with a goal has a god but each person has thier own perception of what that goal is and how to reach it.
