2281  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: So, what did you get for Christmas? on: December 24, 2007, 05:18:09 AM
Congrats Ken, would love to hear impressions after you have it a bit longer.

I did pretty good this year (We had Xmas last weekend when I went home early to avoid the rush).

I got:
Arsenal jersey
Arsenal scarf
Bristol City jersey
Indian cookbook
mandoline

Who has told you not to say Merry Xmas Ken? I can see it if you were in public service, because you don't know who you are talking to really. I always figured this war on Xmas is something invented by Bill OReilly and the press and in reality doesn't really exist. Sure there has been some silly objections to trees and such, but I don't think the vast majority of people could care less. Even as an atheist I have no problem with it at all, Christmas doesn't have to be about religion, it can be about family, giving, or anything else you want it to be.

According to the CNN review they filmed the last few chapters but plan to use them later. I am guessing that means on the DVD.

How are the books for an adult? I have a plane ride coming up and need something to read.

Not really, untaken ones are $35 at register.com

Unless it's taken, which seems to be your problem, then you have to pay the owner (some strange Spanish company in your case) more money.

My guidance, come up with a new name that isn't taken. Tongue

I guess this is why my cable company sent me a message on the DVR saying that I don't need to do anything, they will take care of everything! Guessing they having been getting a lot of questions.

I wish it meant that they had to broadcast every channel in HD. Then I would care.

Whether Jeff Gerstmann was or wasn't dismissed because of his review of this game, the fact is I've now been censored from providing a review. I'm done with them!

To be fair it's because people are trashing it just because of what happened.

Your credit card expiring doesn't help. Mine expired and then one day I turned on my 360 for the first time and I couldn't do anything. The only option was to renew my subscription. There is a way to revert to silver, but it looked like a pain in the ass so I just renewed gold. MS makes the process a pain in the ass and suckers like me fall for it.

Here's another one.


Grabbed these off a Russian LJ page. Babelfish translated the only text there as "House of Tunnel".

All praise to google.

A quote from one of the sites: "This extraordinary structure on Montrose Boulevard took motorists by surprise. A pair of artists, Dan Havel and Dean Ruck was responsible for this house installation. The two wooden buildings were to be replaced by a new built project so the few months before the demolition, they made this into an architectonic installation."

HAH!  I will have to go by there at lunch Monday.  My girlfriend a few years ago used to live right up the way from that place.

It sounds like it isn't there anymore, the building were up for destruction at the time it says.
2303  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Some things are a bit ridiculous if you stop and think about them on: November 25, 2007, 02:18:12 AM
Kind of flawed logic. We may be waterproof, but walking around rain soaked would severely lower our immune system. Why do you think you are cold and miserable when you are out in the rain? Your body is telling you that it doesn't like the conditions. Water extracts heat for your body so you are constantly using energy to keep warm.

As far as your refrigerator logic, start putting all your food outside instead, have fun with that.
2304  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Quick Morality Quiz From Time Magazine on: November 25, 2007, 01:17:57 AM
These kind of quizs really don't mean much. In the reality of the situation your thinking would be much different than how it is to just be sitting here in front of a screen. You can say you would smoother the baby all you want, but if it really came down to it, I don't think any of us would know how we would react.

I was hoping for much more of an interesting quiz coming from ATB. Abortion, capital punishment issues or something juicy. smile

I just know that when people do stay respectful, some of the most interesting discussion can come out of these kinds of subjects, even if at the end nobody has convinced the other side to defect.

When has one side EVER convinced the other side when it comes to politics or religion?

That's not really the point. It's fun to argue sometimes, and you often learn more about other's ideas and are forced to research your own beliefs more in order to argue them. A Christian will never convert me but they can give me stuff to think about and force me to think outside of the way I currently think. You learn from discussing/debating opposite viewpoints, that is the point.

About 10 hours in here, too, and I agree with GatorFavre and Torfish.  I can't find a negative in the game.

I can. Some of the motion controls suck. When your steering Mario on a ball, I would much rather use the analog stick than try to move the wiimote like one. I am finding with the Wii, most games that try to utilize precise tilt sensing tend to annoy me. I like the IR aiming and non-precise gesture waving of the Wiimote much better than imprecise tilt sensing. Playing the first ball level ticked me off enough to send me running back to Assassin's Creed.

(I still think SMG is superb otherwise, and it's not like getting ticked at a Mario game hasn't happened with EVERY other title too! smile )

I loved that world... frown

Same here, I wasnt a big fan of the ray surfing however.

Surfing was fun once I got the hang of it. And I loved the ball world and thought the controls were pretty good myself.

Now Rocky Road? I hate that level and still haven't finished it. I have been so close but I always panic and make a bad jump.

Scramble eggs, add salsa and mix. Fry egg, add salsa. Don't over think it Jeff. smile

4 months? I wouldn't eat it.

Edit: And eggs and salsa isn't weird at all, isn't it extremely common?
