  1. The article makes it seem like he was just trying to unlock the door, which isn't that stupid.. :| It also said that he had a problem the day before where he was slumped the wheel (steering wheel?) of his car. Maybe he had some kind of condition. Said condition kicked in while he got himself stuck in the pet door.
  2. So, is anything planned yet or has anything happened? I was away the past week at my brother's wedding so I couldn't get on tip.it I'm still up for some games 8-)
  3. Lol I used to flame you because I thought you were an attention [bleep]. I ended up banned too :D I was a silly young teenager also. Won't reveal who I was though, don't want some pissed off mod who holds a grudge rebanning me. :^o
  4. I remember the days of scapeboard, when users had pictures of themselves.
  5. I'll play too (expansion) 8-) Used to be pretty good..Although I will be very rusty now.
  6. Do you not understand what conscription is? You don't say hey, I want to go! That is volunteering. Conscription is them calling you up. If you don't go, you're going somewhere-prison. Remember if you're an American male over 18, you have to be enlisted with the selective service if you want to be able to hold any type or respectable job or enroll in any type of secondary education. Once you enlist (which you pretty much have to) you no longer have any right to say you don't want to go. Hopefully a draft will never happen, and if it does it will not be for an unecessary battle far away. If it does happen it will hopefully be for defending our soil or a WWI/WWII type scenario where we are defending close allies and stopping the enemies from potentially coming to us. I believe if we really are attacked, a draft won't even be necessary though since many people would join up voluntarely. I know that if someone literally decided to attack us, I would. Then I'll go to jail, or I'll flee the country, anything beats fighting and dying in a war that has no purpose. Ok, traitor. You sign up for the selective service to reap all the benifits, but when push comes to shove you wuss out? :-k ANd you know, "going to canada" is no longer an option. There is some kind of agreement now that they can go hunt you down there, although I don't know the name of it. And you know, most conscripts don't even serve in the front line anyway. They usually hold duties at the bases here and abroad while the real soldiers are fighting. Any combat veteran will tell you iti s better to have no one at your side than a scared and unexperienced who has no idea what he's doing or what to do and doesn't even want to be there in the first place.
  7. Do you not understand what conscription is? You don't say hey, I want to go! That is volunteering. Conscription is them calling you up. If you don't go, you're going somewhere-prison. Thanks to college, I will never have to actually get in a drafted war. :roll: You know they can't send all young men to war. Well what if the draft hits when you are no longer in college?
  8. Something not on a new generation console.. Something not generally sold in stores anymore.. Something with poor graphics by today's standards.. Something more than a few years old.. I would of never thought there could be some sort of confusion about what an outdated video game is :-s
  9. That seems similar to me. In a real life discussion, you either nkow or you don't nkow. You don't have google and the dictionary to help you. You can't go to wikipedia five minutes and then come back trying to pass as an expert on whatever is being discussed. Internet discussions often seem too artificial. The poster puts way too much thought into his/her or your post. (no e-brag) but I consider my spelling to be well above average. So the spelling errors I make are usually just typos from typing too fast or sloppily (is that a word?) I absolutely HATE it when people don't know the difference between you're and your, too and to, hole and whole, etc. Sometimes I will read my post after submitting and then correct spelling errors I may catch or reword something that does not sound as good as it seemed at the time of writing.

  11. I recently started playing Goldeneye 007 again along with other N64 games. Several times a year I will pick up my N64 and play some of the games on it. I suppose it being the last system I ever had is one of the reasons why I don't play as many recent games, lol. But evne on the computer, I still enjoy a good ol' Doom. Or NES/SNES emulator spree. I for one couldn't care less about a game's graphics. I will take gameplay over graphics, and if a good game has good graphics good. But if a bad game has good graphics it is still a bad game. What about you guys? How often do you replay your old games? DOesn't it just feel nostalgic to be playing the levels you have not played in years and hearing the music you didn't hear in years? I really wish I could relive my first time around through zelda OOT. The whole game had such a great feel to it, especially once you step out into Hyrule field. I can't really put it into words. Today, even though it is still a great game and fun to play through not only for the nostalgia and because it really was a good game, there is no way to relive the experience of playing that game. Sort of like RSC. I can log in to it now, but I will never get the same experience I had 5 years ago when I had the world map open and was telling my friend I was North of Varrock when in reality I was near Draynor Village.
  12. Well yeah it is normal for a longer post to take a longer time to write out. I was looking more for about if you spend a lot of time re-reading, spellchecking, trying to make your post sound smarter, etc. But cool for not making one of those one line quick boost my post count up posts 8-)
  13. Thank you for your insightful contribution to this thread. I love the way you interpreted my post! Didn't see that one coming!
  14. I don't mean an actual unit of time, but more as in how much effort/thought etc. I, for one, try to never spend too much time on a post. I like to think of a forum as a conversation (even though it is not, as the exchange of words and ideas can be hours apart whereas in a real time conversation it must be instant.) I like to feel as if it is an instant converstion. I will write what is on my head, of course correcting any errors I may make as I go if I notice them. I am not going to (unless required) spend a large amount of time thinking up a post, planning it, reading it over for any errors, taking out a thesaurus to replace my normal way of speaking with more advanced words that end up looking downright foolish when all packed into a sentence. This may be a bit contradictory to the first part of my post. I say this because it is not really feasible in a real life conversation to do this. Often time, I simply couldn't care less so I don't reply. Or I find the opponent's argument so flawed that it does not even deserve a response. I may stop caring about a topic altogether, while some may see it as that they won the argument or debate, it is just that wasting any more time and energy on it is not profitable anymore. Either the argument is going in circles or the opponent's skull is so thick that it seems that waht they get from reading your post is what they want, not what you truly are saying (this happens so often!) You just keep explaining it to them in plain English (or whichever language is used on the forum you are posting on) they will still use the same arguments over and over as if they are not even reading your post. So many times I have written out posts, some long, some shorter. Some took a long amount of time to write, others were just quick replies. Then I will just think to myself, "what am I doing? This isn't worth it. I'm just wasting my time here." and I will click the back button and not submit my post. If I had submitted all my posts I would easily have over 10k posts on every forum I have ever post on. Which would be a mind boggling amount of total posts. To be honest, I'm surprised I haven't already clicked back and ditched this ridiculous idea of a thread. After all, we have all seen that one internet picture about arguing on the itnernet compared to the special olympics, and as sad as it is to say, often times it is very true. Very little other than possibly slight personal satisfaction will come out of participating or even winning an e-fight. I guess this thread ended up drifting slightly off topic of my original intent... So you can talk about arguing on the internet or how much time you spend on posts :-k
  15. It appears that you sir have definitely validated your level of intelligence, or more precisely lack thereof. I read because I enjoy it. As I watch movies or play video games. A book scratches places other media can't reach. There are books out there that bring things to life that by no other means could ever exist. Words can create worlds that seem so much more believable then what one views on a screen. Characters become so believable because it is not up to acting, but ones mind to excite the presented language into acceptable circumstances. I pity the fool that reads for an image, and more so one that omits reading for the same reason. Validating intelligence. Pwah! I can't tell if you are being sarcastic in your whole post or if you truly are as snobby as your post makes you out to be.
