  1. Freshman = first year of college/university I'm not sure about American terms.
  2. Well there are a lot of arguments here and rules being broken that frankly nobody cares about. Mather just posted a referral link the page before, and while the argument about it was removed his actual referral link was never removed. I think that when I'm board moderator I'll be able to handle these things immediately and as soon as they happen rather than simply leaving them to the moderators - where it gets blown out of proportion and things just get ridiculous. While I agree that I may not be the ideal candidate, I am the only candidate that is available at the moment and the tavern sorely needs a board moderator. "I wholeheartedly support Resistance as leader. Throughout knowing him I have always known that he has cared about the tavern, always known that he is willing to put the work in and is definitely my prime candidate if I were tasked with choosing a moderator. While unorthodox due to his high number of warning points and past behaviour, I feel that this is a last hope for the tavern - something that is needed to help prevent it from sinking. It's not like he's going to cause much damage as a board moderator, and I see him being somebody who can really rise to the challenge."
  3. I think it would be for the best if the tavern had some sort of unbiased and home moderator to ensure that these sort of things don't happen any longer. While I'm not nominating myself, I feel that I would fit the position excellently as a fairly long-running member of the tavern, an upstanding player of many games who has helped mediate disputes in the past and also somebody who has managed two games of my own. Hopefully this is the sort of thing that would revitalise the tavern.
  4. Banned for making jokes about animal abuse. Not funny at all :/
  5. It's possibly over the whole year then, although I'm sure it's quite possible in a university city to do it over the first week. People have achieved much greater things in much shorter amounts of time.
  6. Banned for joining in 2005 and still being here, birds got to fly.
  7. I would disagree there, Constrictor. University is a life changing experience, and while the primary focus is around education - I would argue that it is important to your development into a mature person. Also, page 777 :)
  8. Oh, silly me. I thought freshman 15 was when you had sex with 15 girls during your freshman year or during freshers week. I'm definitely not doing the actual freshman 15.
  9. Women might be the ones who obsess over it more, but in my college "orientation" bullshit class they forced me to take, it was stressed to both groups equally. What do you mean by that? I thought it was like a culture thing that was passed from the sophomores onto the freshmen every year?
  10. Is anybody else doing the 'freshman 15' next year? Tips, advice, stories?
  11. Kaida, can you please add back whatever I said about the illuminati unrelated to the argument if it's not an issue. I don't remember what it was. Surely. :) Also, I don't really think anything I said should have been removed since I didn't break any rules. While Mather did by flaming. Issues with moderating decisions should be taken up privately; please don't do it here. I'll get back to you later (I'm at work and my lunch is almost over).

  14. Very much this. My grandfather, father and uncle are all Masons. A less likely group of world dominating conpirists there never was. :lol: Does that mean that you're part lizardman?
  15. I did a study on this because our debating society held a debate about whether the catholic church was a force for good. While there were examples of the church oppressing science throughout history (Galileo, albeit not Dark Ages most prominently) they were actually responsible for the funding of many scientists, artists and musicians. Without the church, there wouldn't be science. In the Da Vinci code, the illuminati was created for that reason but that was IIRC after the dark ages and was actually because the Catholic Church didn't like none vatican-approved scientists, this was not to do with religion - simply because free science spread all these ridiculous ideas (in medicine particularly there were a lot of people saying rubbish, but the church stuck with Galen) I believe that the Catholic Church has done the greatest for humanity ever. It has promoted art, science and culture beyond the likes of anything else throughout history - I would argue that only the existence of the internet has had such a major effect. - Alg, Illuminati definitely did exist and probably continues to do so right now. It's just all that 'law of 13' and the bildeberg meetings and NWO shit. Though some of the evidence is pretty convincing. You can find some rather convincing conspiracy theories around. I'll send you some links if you hit me up on steam.
  16. I think Edison invented AC, or at least invented something by himself. Church never held back science. In fact the catholic church funded science and such. Dark ages were as a result of Rome falling.
  17. Nope, he was a genius. He was just a massive dick to Tesla which is why some people don't like him. Tesla died poor because of his 'genius'
  18. It was a really nice community. But then LowC started building this massive ugly tower in the middle of our spawn and me and somebody else complained and he just said suck it, I'm admin I'll do whatever I want. And the banning of water and lava was pretty over the top - he could have just gotten a rollback plugin like logblock. He also built this stupid ugly dam near my wizards tower, he didn't ask whether he could do it he just decided he could. And that 30x30 area which was supposed to be really tall (I even added dirt blocks to make it taller) became really low because he spawned a load of water in and raised the level really high. On vanilla survival servers like this, it really devalues other peoples builds when the admin is just building a bunch of massive things with creative mode. ~ R.E "disappointed in his behaviour" sistance
  19. Probably to a degree. Yesterday on /tg/ there was a discussion about a Persistent World D&D game which some guy messed up - and it was mainly centered around D&D recognising an imbalance in levels. a level 8 cannot kill a level 16, when really they should be able to. But in D&D, it's as if high-level D&D players have an ability on par with the necromonger leader in Chronicles of Riddck, and that if anybody sneaks up on them or attempts to stab them in the back it either does nothing because they phase away or they can't detect it. GURPs and SW handle it better because instead of increasing HP, they add more talents and skills while the people remain human. I don't particularly like high power games, but D&D requires you to suspend your reality because in the D&D universe you're not supposed to be high power but you just are. Also, how well you do is determined by which build you get off of min-max boards and stick your own name on. Since D&D doesn't exactly promote storytelling. http://www.mediafire...67z5c3x2qllxlfu I'm interested in playing this. It seems rather fun, and while still being fantasy it uses the superior system of 40k. Overall 40k is better, it's just that psykers are consistently better until they're not and die. Can we ask to be moved back to our normal place?
  20. I meant Genius as to say achieving great things, like Edison meant (or achieving anything at all)- I just switched the values around since I don't agree with them. I don't really agree with calling anybody who doesn't achieve anything a genius. There are so many people on the internet who like to boast their above average intelligence despite being an underachiever. Isn't this like when you said that you said that having a girlfriend, trying to pursue one is really useful because it motivates you to do well? It's just a misguided sense of priorities, not something that's actually helpful. It would work if you/others didn't start off a game by finding out the most broken build possible.
  21. Something being anime doesn't particularly make the story better. As well as being (usually) shoddily done cartoons which is to say that they have a lot of still frames they have a load of the things that just aren't found in western media: fanservice, annoyingly high-voiced japanese schoolgirls, tentacles, over-the-top action that's on par with spoof western action movies (a-team). I don't think I'll ever truly believe that people actually like anime unless they want to see scantily dressed cartoon women or are just part of the fandom. It's about as appealing as trainspotting to me. And it's certainly not an activity I would encourage, I have no idea why people try to encourage people to watch anime. Though that's just me. It's a waste of time, like watching films, reading fiction and playing games. That doesn't mean you shouldn't do it, it just means that it's not really a hobby that achieves anything like going to the gym (makes you fitter), or reading history books (broadens your mind). Mather, your wasting your time with anime. You used to seem quite intelligent with the scientific formulas but I fear you're throwing that to waste. Genius is around 30% being clever, and then 70% actually working. Depending on scales that can increase to around 50/50 to the people that do maths really quickly but don't actually achieve much. And so on, though I can't talk - while I do spend very little time playing games unless I actively start seeking them out, I find I spend a lot of time doing absolutely nothing while waiting in between things to do. I feel I can't read methodically, and when I can't get hold of things quickly enough it slows me down. You always get children on sites like Reddit saying bullshit like "I learnt more about history from Age of Empires than my history teacher", well whoop dee-[bleep]ing-doo. If you actually sank around 150 hours (like you had with AOE) into actually reading history books and studying manuscripts you would be even more far ahead. Arguing that anime, books and videogames are 'passive learning' is the most stupid argument in existence. The problem is that it doesn't achieve anything.
