He probably has the messed up BoA download with the incomplete version. Most likely, you have an incomplete scenario which was mistakenly included in the game download. The full version is around somewhere.

EDIT: Here.

I simply remind people, when they seem jealous, that I have had to leave second period to turn off my car, which I left running, and that I've put food in the oven to warm it up, only to find half an hour later that I never turned it on. I'm good at abstract concepts and numbers; others are good at life. I haven't decided just where the advantage lies yet.

None, thank God. Last Summer, I worked at a Quizno's, and that, for lack of a better term, sucked.

I think he/she meant to say, "hadn't been canned" rather than "hadn't have been canned".

Indeed. I only mentioned it because he brought up being nasty about grammar. You know, irony and stuff.

Yeah, back in, like, first grade I used to get in trouble for reading this chemistry textbook instead of doing whatever stupid crap I was supposed to be doing. Of course, I'm no Thuryl, so I didn't really understand it, but I retained elementary stuff like what an Alpha particle is and the crystal structure of a diamond.

EDIT: Youngling, TM? Did you just see Episode III? I must confess that, during the whole "I saw him kill younglings!" part, I just imagined Anikin chugging Yuengling Lager.

You would get used to it if you had 18 years to do so. I like coming here because there are people who are obviously much more intelligent than I am. It's humbling. No need to hate them for it.

My name is Adam, I'm soon to be 17, I'm 5'7", 190 pounds, I play American Football, which explains partly why I'm so much heavier than Ben, despite being 6 inches shorter, I'm kind of introverted, I dominate standardized tests, and I, um, play Spiderweb games.

Sorry, I don't know english-metric conversion factors.

I would guess you just turned 13.

Same here, except I'm not a 'frilly dancing boner' on Polaris. I don't like frills, and I can't dance.

This is unfortunate, because you deny only two of the three categories. Sometimes, it's what you don't say that counts.

EDIT: fyt is "fixed your typos" and it's used here in the sense that "What you just wrote proved you to be a tool" or "What you just wrote proved you to be not very intelligent."

Eww. Pistons. I rooted for them to beat the Lakers, but can you imagine Pistons-Spurs? I imagine games with a combined score below 100. Blech. I'd much rather see Wade in the finals. Now, the Suns, that's how basketball is meant to be played: passing, dunks, threes, and little floaters in the lane from Nash (and no defense). Too bad San Antonio just went up 3-0 on them. At least Ginobili and Parker are fun to watch sometimes.

Karma and Bush, and also the WTC in General
Shock Trooper
Member # 4445

I once supported Bush, and still do support the War in Iraq. My problem with Bush is that he's changed Conservatism into Fundamentalist Liberalism. He's spending more on everything, not just defense, and he's asserting more federal power than any Liberal since FDR, and he's doing so much more invasively. The tax-cut was a concession to actual conservatives in the Republican Party, and the next president will have to pay for Bush's attempt to have his cake and eat it too. Liberals were always the ones who wanted to use government to push a moral agenda; conservatives just tried to prevent it keeping them from pushing theirs. Now, thanks to the Republican Party's sudden turn for the Fundamentalist, we've got two moral agendas battling for what they see as a mandate to do as they wish; Conservatism is dead (Well, that's a little over-dramatic, but the Republican Party of today isn't really conservative anymore).

Don't underestimate how much difference it makes having someone who can do something on the pick-and-roll. Amare sets good, strong screens and then gets himself open right away. They play a great two-man game in the half court, especially because either one can kick it out once the defence starts focusing on the pick-and-roll. Of course, that's only a factor if Quentin Richardson can actually make a shot. I will concede, though, that he never was this good on the fast break in Dallas. I'll say this again: point guards need finishers, not just jump shooters. The mavericks were all jump shooters back then.

Heh. You can't run the pick-and-roll when your only decent seven-footer thinks it's o.k. to play small forward and jack threes. If the Mavericks had an Amare Stoudemire, Nash would have been just as good for them. Point guards are just better when they have a big man or two to slam it home (see Jason Kidd after getting Kenyon Martin and Richard Jefferson).

Probably California. Let's see: Lakers, Kings, Dodgers, Angels, Athletics, 49ers, Raiders, Mighty Ducks (although they may or may not be playing in the near future). That's quite a few, although New York's got a hefty number, too.

Well, Phoenix is doing the same thing in San Antonio now, I mean, they were leading going into the fourth quarter in each of the first two games. This trend better halt now, because I won't make it through the first quarter in a Detroit-San Antonio series (yes I will, but it'll be boring).

Indeed! Steve Nash is freaking amazing, yet Ginobili and Duncan seem to be too much for him. We'll see what happens when Joe Johnson gets back, though. Detroit-Miami is, let's face, boring. Wade takes two dribbles, gets mobbed, passes it out, then it goes to Shaq, and the same thing happens, until someone decides to throw up a brick. Defense may win championships, but I wouldn't know, because I fall asleep in the second quarter. I would have liked to see T-Mac go further, because he is most definitely not boring.

Eh. If someone says something that isn't your business, the fact that they swear when they say it shouldn't make it any more your business. I can see where you're coming from about the message board, though, Alex, because stuff on the message board is inherently your business. On the other hand, if you can't take it when people casually curse, what'll you do when they actually curse at you hurtfully? Desensitization seems like the best all-around option to me.

Call me crazy, but I always thought what you say is more important than how you say it. Insults are insults, cusses or no. Plus, where would I be without my favorite ripostes for my friends' crude barbs? Sometimes I think we wouldn't like each other nearly as much if we couldn't call each other ****s.

Already said it, but hey: anything featuring Chris Cornell (Soundgarden, Audioslave, solo stuff), Led Zepellin, A Perfect Circle, Interpol. There's more, but I can't think of it.

In latin, abstract nouns are pretty much always feminine. (i.e -itas, -itatis, and -os, -onis)

their = possessive pronoun

they're = contraction for "they are"

While I'm at it:

should've = contraction for "should have"

should of != English

EDIT: The latter because I've seen it on this board, and this is the only appropriate place to post it.
