Nor will you see the comments from the Sound Off section of the official site...

lots of contentious discussion over there..

Where? All I saw was how excited everyone was about the movie. Or was that sarcasm?

Well I didn't say he got it correct. slywink This isn't stuff you just find on the net, so I am curious where they get their info.

Would love to know where you guys get your info since none of this stuff is public.

Endless Oceans is pre-ordered, looks nice a nice relaxing game.

Advanced Wars after I hear some reviews. Didn't like Dual Strike much, but supposedly this one is much better, so I am hoping.

Yeah sorry Windows95, I thought you were the one who said you didn't get the foreign tracks over on OO, but I went and re-read that thread. I got it completely wrong, and I apologize.

That said, DBT got it and posted minor impression over on OO. 4 routes, 1 in the US, 2 from England and 1 from Germany included in the US release.

I believe that since in college - I genuinely asked Jesus into my heart that I'm spared an eternity in Hell.

Yep. Safe.

So you speak for God? You aren't supposed to judge I thought, it's up to your God to decide who is going to hell or not. slywink

And since supposedly in your Gods eyes saying his name in vain is just as bad as being a rapist, murderer, etc, that is why I don't believe in him. I would think such a higher power would be above such trivial things, and if he's not, then he is not the god for me.

That's not what I was saying. You are the only one who really seems to care about R&P on GT and tend to dominate any threads on the subjects. It wasn't a knock.

.. as they knew they'd be buying them back at full market value rather than the price purchased from auction.

There is nothing to lead you to believe that they are getting refunded the price originally paid the trailers though (market value).

The original article says:
Quote
eligible for the full buybacks, although purchasers will be responsible for getting the trailers back to FEMA drop-off points

Other articles on the same story say people can get a refund if they bring the trailer back. None of the articles suggest people made money off of it.

Don't you think there would be a huge outrage in the article and this item would be headlines everywhere if people were getting paid $20,000 for a $6,000 trailer? The articles point is that FEMA screwed up again, that's why this was a back page news story. Also if you a search for FEMA trailers, you can see links for the original auction, they were open to almost anyone (not that I researched that one too hard).

If I am going to assume information I can turn literally turn every news story on CNN into some sort of conspiracy.

Edit: I sent the author of the article an email asking him to clear up his use of the words "full buyback." I feel a bit silly asking, because it seems pretty obvious to me.

We sure peaced the fuck out of Iraq, didn't we?

I wasn't aware we used nukes in Iraq. The nuclear mission is peace through deterrence.

As far as plans go, they don't always work.

I am so lost here.

FEMA sales 10,000 trailers from LA for $6000+ each.
Turns out the trailers are contanimated.
FEMA says bring us back the trailers and we will give you your money back.
FEMA loses even more money. The government looks even worse in the eyes of everyone.

I can't see anything fishy here no matter how I twist it. Explain to me what the scary "Oh my god Bush did it!" thing is coming from?
2496  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Iranian Boats (possibly with GWB at the helm) Harass US Warship on: January 19, 2008, 07:08:22 AM
Yep, you are the expert Unbreakable. Hell I am going to start asking you questions.

We changed the policy to include modern threats after the cold war. The mission is still peace through deterrence. You don't even know what you are posting, you just see key words to get alarmed about. None of these documents are talking about B-52s flying alerts with nukes, ICBMs all pointing at Egypt, or subs just waiting for a call from Bush. They included post cold war threats and made plans to deal with them. You can't be so naive to think they don't plan for everything can you?
2497  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Fiscal Conservatives, hard at work on: January 19, 2008, 06:36:28 AM

I'm a bit of a conspiracy theorist, and think that the manipulations of the power elite go far beyond what most people want to imagine, but even I think you're overreaching on this one Unbreakable.

Yeah, I am not even sure what he is getting at really. No one made money off it since the article said that FEMA bought them back for the price they were sold. In fact FEMA is losing a ton of money, which makes Bush look even worse.

I'd love this but not enough to pay $40 for it...looks really cool though.

It's also gimped, you only get the tracks for the country you live in. Each regional release only has 4 tracks and the trains associated with them. So you don't get the European routes and trains for instance.
2500  Non-Gaming / Political / Religious Nonsense / Re: Fiscal Conservatives, hard at work on: January 19, 2008, 03:19:24 AM
Actually hes right, I saw some trailers in the GSA catalog the other day, but there was a little note at the bottom of the page saying you could only buy them if you were friends of Bush. I thought that was kind of weird, but it all makes sense now. Thanks Unbreakable!

I am so damn sick of that song, please let it die.

Just not feeling it for the stop loss guys, they should have done some research before they signed up during a war.

You're right, they should have done some research or actually read the contract when enlisting.  I was "stop-loss" in 2002 for another tour and this is after I already did 8 years of service.  My drill instructor once said, "the fastest way out of boot, is to finish it."  It's the same way with another tour, finish it or risk having the government ruin your civilian life.

Well I wouldn't go that far, I am on my 5th enlistment and I don't think I have ever read the contract smile, but the possibility of stop loss was always pretty clear if you talked to people or read CNN/FOX etc.

I hear the sequel to this movie is going to be about Reserve guys pissed off because they joined for college money and then actually had to deploy.

While I have no idea what spurred this post, I have to say it's quite annoying. I can come here and see 10 new posts from Daehawk, and then I go to OO and see the exact same posts there. smile (Joking!! I don't really care, it kind of amuses me.)

You posted a link of a proposed plan, that did not claim that we were pointing anything at Iran.

You know so little on how nukes work and the policies surrounding them, it would be better if you just didn't comment on them because you are making yourself look like a fool.

Well I'm glad you said that!  Since you know so much more than me, I'm sure you can easily show how and why I'm wrong, citing all your sources, etc.

I look forward to reading it!

Cite sources? I don't need to, it's what I do for a living, and something I am not going to talk about on an internet forum beyond what I have said already. I am not getting up here fear mongering by throwing around ideas with no backing or basis, I am just pointing out to you that you literally know nothing about the subject, nor do you care to learn. I am also not the one telling everyone here that they are uneducated about everything under the sun like you are. Except on one subject, but in that subject, I do have a bit more knowledge than you.

You cannot say things here Unbreakable without any credible support and declare everything you say as fact and then expect us all to believe you because you tell us you are more knowledgeable than us. In fact you are doing what the government does, but even more extreme.

In the end I think you have issues, I don't mean that as an insult, but you say such absurd things, its hard to believe that a sane person could come up with such ideas. But at the same time you don't research anything out of your bubble, you read what you want to and ignore everything else.

I am done responding to you, it only encourages you to get on your soap box and spew more tripe.

converted MMIII to one warhead instead of 3?
and i still think there has been a less than subtle shift in how cavalier those within government, and those attempting to become government, view the "usability" of nuclear weapons.  my one consolation is, again, the high ranking military officials who will hopefully be screaming in their ears to tone down the rhetoric

Despite what certain people will have you believe, there hasn't been any big changes in the mission. It is still peace through deterrence. The DoD makes "just in case plans" for everything, when the media gets a hold it they freak out and claim that we are now doing things differently. It's just not the case. The idea of us just going around using nukes because we can is absurd and is the equivalent to Bush's saber rattling. Unbreakable can scream all day that we have nukes aimed at Iran and Bush has been given permission to use them, but its the same as Bush going up there and saying if we don't remove Saddam from power the world is going to end. It's all just talk with no basis in reality.

The fact that the goverment is loosening the trigger on the nukes for a broadser set of use, specifically non nuclear threats, is terrifying!

i find it scary too.  and its not just the the government, the politicians running for president on both sides of the isle have lobbed around more than enough hypothetical nukes as well.  the last three or four years have made incredible strides backwards in the field of nonproliferation

I am guessing you don't know how we recently got rid of the Peacekeeper weapon system and converted MMIII to one warhead instead of 3? We also got rid of a ACMs and have converted some other missiles.

Honestly you guys, as far as nukes go, don't believe anything you read. The government doesn't make any of this information public knowledge and the media guesses to fill in the holes. One base I was at the press reported that we shipped our nukes to England. We didn't even have nukes. They just saw bombers land empty and take off with missiles.

You say you know more than anyone else here about things, but you already admitted you don't know anything about Hezbollah (nor do you care to know anything), and then you claim something as fact about weapons you obviously don't know anything about. Please post about something you do know, and then please give legitimate links and not just the insane rantings you seem to like.
