So that prime example in Bowling for Columbine of Moore editing Charlton Heston speeches together to misrepresent what Heston was truly saying isn't a "core fundamental misrepresentation"?

Sure it is, but misrepresentation of a crazed actor who is being used as a figurehead isn't the same as misrepresenting a philosopher or scientist who actually knows what he is talking about. smile

That actor chose to be the spokesman for the NRA because he believes in it.   You speak of the NRA as if they are some shadowy backroom smoke and mirrors group.    They are actually made up of 4 million citizens, and you can join any day you want and participate.     I was a recruiter for the NRA an signed up many folks.   I did it in my own time, but the NRA sent me materials and the like.    It was my time and energy expended by my own choice.     Charton Heston's time and energy by his own choice contributed to the cause as well.

You'd think you'd be a better shot then.     *zing!*  ninja (goes back to non-politcal forums in a hurry)

I have the lil 360 keyboard that attaches to the controller now so I sometimes use it and sometimes my computer so no problems on the msgs smile

I'll suggest to anyone that doesn't feel confident about staying alive for the whole round that once you get a helicopter, hold on to it and start being more aggressive.  Then once you die, call it up and be very conservative.  On most maps this will allow you to use your helicopter to get you at least an air strike and sometimes another helicopter.  Some of my best games have been like this.  UAV, Air-strike, run out kill three more people and die, respawn and call helicopter, camp and peg a couple people while helicopter kills a few, air strike for the rest, run out and kill a couple, die, respawn and call helicopter, repeat.  This is how I ended up going 40+ kills with 4 deaths in a very, very short amount of time on Pipeline.  Overgrown was almost as good.  Basically on any map that a helicopter is a good deal you are better off taking the death and using it when you respawn.

This advice works for airstrikes too in some regards.  If you get an airstrike but are in a bad spot and likely to be overrun or killed, try to get somewhere safe.  Worst case is you die and the airstrike will help you get an airstrike slywink

The tamborine function is based on the sound you make when you hit the mic, any mic works for that.  If you couldn't get the other mics to work, you weren't hitting the mic properly.

If I play this, I'll definitely be playing on a PVP server.  In all the games I've played I've always had way more fun on the open pvp servers.  DAOC, WOW, AC, EQ2

Just be wary that AoC seems to be extremely quest heavy for leveling up.  If the quest leads you through linear areas which have obvious bottlenecks then you are going to have some serious ganking going on.  If you don't belong to a guild that can break the gank, well might as well quit the game for the night and hope the next day the gankers go away because you won't be able to do anything at all.  In those games you mention, there were always alternatives.

If it isn't possible to level up without doing quests (at a reasonable rate) then I won't be playing the game anyway.  I don't enjoy quest-centric games very much.

So if you don't do quests, do you just grind or what?

I usually do some quests, but I prefer to level off PvP and if that isn't possible then I like having lots of options such as different places to grind and multiple quests to choose from in different areas.  I levelled in DAOC on the PvP server almost entirely from PvP only and it really wasn't all that much slower than questing and was much more fun.

Getting people out of the cave on creek is a pain.  Flashbang/Stun grenades can help.  It seems like the grenade launcher is a better bet for consistency, however.  Getting a grenade throw just right so that it will actually get the folks inside is really tricky.  Having the sonic boom perk would probably help as well.

If possible having someone flank around the back (hard to do if there are competent snipers as well) works as most people only watch one side or the other.

The problem was my dopey team kept charging in. + 10 +10 +10 for the other team.

ATB: Stop going in the cave.

+ 10 +10 +10 for the other team

ATB: Stop going in the cave!

+ 10 +10 +10 for the other team

Repeat until defeat.


I used to countersniper with the RPD on that map until I found the cave slywink  Now I usually camp the cave because there are always people on the other team who will file into my crosshairs repeatedly without me even having to aim.  Can be frustrating when it's your team I imagine.  If the other team is holed up in the cave, I just ignore it.

I definitely feel bad in a snobbish kinda way for people who don't give music they aren't familiar with a shot.  I pretty much download it all and have been pleasantly surprised that I enjoy either listening to, playing or both almost every song I've downloaded.  (didn't like Cherry Bomb, that's about it)

Trying out new music can be very nice, and it often takes a few listens to appreciate a new style or band that you aren't familiar with.

I'm still having a blast with the PC MP.  the nice thing about the PC and public servers is that practically no one uses the built in voice chat, so there's less verbal asshattery.

It's so easy to mute people that I find I'd rather just pop a button to mute each offender than miss out on the teamwork that often happens on Live.  Most people aren't idiots that play, it's just that there are enough of them that you usually have 1-2 per room of 12.

True and I appreciate that. I am just tired and relieved. Probably a little grumpy. Haven't had anything good to pass along in a few days and too tired to formulate any effectual communication. No time for rest yet, have a day full of hectic work ahead. Maybe tonight.

Nirvana's the only one they've mentioned, so I'm sure that'll happen.  Of course, they only have to release one more song off of Boston's first, but that would feel like a gyp.  Personally, I'm hoping we see Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars.  Probably not right away, but what a great album.
First album mentioned was The Who

I was made to watch all of these with one of my ex-gf's.  We watched 2 seasons straight through in a marathon that just about killed me mentally and physically.  However, it was all worth it for just one episode.  One of the girls ends up sleeping with one of the other girl's brothers and it causes some issues.  My gf turns to me and says 'what kind of asshole would date and treat their best friend's brother like that'.  This same ex-gf once left me for the brother of her best friend and that ended up blowing up in epic proportions which is why her comment left me sitting there jaw dropped, trying not to say anything but I couldn't resist.  I simply said 'was so-and-so not the brother of your best friend?' Well, it got me out of watching the rest of the show then. smile
