Meh. Not a jerk. If we showed that much care about our fellow man all the time, the world would be a better place.

You are right, nothing screws up the world quite like college kids drinking. If we could stop that, the world would be a better place.

The business in question was plainly breaking a very solid law set in place to prevent the kinds of things I was talking about, whether this situation would have ended that way or not.

So then, do you call the cops every time you see a lone person drink 3 drinks at the bar and then drive home? If you walk into an apartment building and smell pot outside of someones door do you call the cops? If you see someone speeding do you call the cops? Etc. I see people plainly break very solid laws daily, some of them potentially dangerous to you and your family and I don't do anything about it. In this case, Papasmurf did not call the cops because he was worried about them drinking and driving, he called the cops because some underage (I am guessing college age kids since he knows them) were having some fun at a bar. No one was hurt, and there was no implication in the original post that this was the case.

And I also disagree, as a HS aged drinker, we were far more likely to drink somewhere where there would be no driving as compared to an adult. We were much more careful about getting caught.

I work with two guys who lost family members to seperate car accidents. One lost his son about a year ago and the other lost his nephew just a week and a half ago. In both cases the other drivers were underage and drunk.

You did the right thing.

So a drunk driving 20 year old is different than a drunk driving 21 year old? He also didn't discuss whether these people were driving, so your statement is irrelevant. If they were driving then yes he should have called the cops on a drunk driver regardless of age. But then again I can point you to any bar in the country and you will see someone tipsy drive away.
2525  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Was I a jerk? on: April 05, 2008, 08:21:57 AM
I didn't take a potshot, it wasn't a question, it was a statement. For you to do that, I made a correct assumption that you didn't drink when underage.

How old were these people? 15 or 19? I could understand if you called the cops on a 15 year old to possible help the kid. I don't see the difference between a 19 year old and a 21 year old drinking, but then we could discuss the morality of drinking laws all day. I will say, if underage drinking is such a threat where you live why is it ok at home but not in public? What is the difference?

In my opinion, since you don't work for the place and didn't have anything to do with it besides your moral superiority (that is a potshot), the adult thing to do would have been to go to the underage drinkers in question, since you know them well enough to know their ages and kindly say "Hey guys, you know you shouldn't be in here, get out of here".
2526  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Re: Was I a jerk? on: April 05, 2008, 07:01:11 AM
It was of none of your business and I don't see why you care. Under age people drink all the time, but I am guessing you never did.

I don't think there is any doubt that S&G existed from my very limited knowledge. IIRC there are 5 sites which could be it, they just don't have enough enough evidence to narrow it down. There is an excellent episode of Digging for the Truth on the subject ($1.99 on iTunes).

I am in the military. We all know about stop loss. People who bitch about things they should have known about get no sympathy at all. I would think you would be hard pressed to find anyone in the military who had much sympathy for a kid like the movie depicts, especially from an NCO.

When was the last time you had a spelling test? I am not sure if not having to study for a spelling test in 3rd grade means much 30 years later. smile

Hell if I know DamageInc, just an idea. Just seems strange that you get cut up, thought maybe you pressed too hard, went against the grain at an odd angle or something. Been shaving myself for 18 years or so and can't think of the last time I cut myself even when using a disposable.

Quote from: DamageInc on March 23, 2008, 06:53:15 PM

I may try the safety razor. I simply have no choice to switch out the blade that often. I have been doing it since I started shaving over 25 years ago. When I shaved every day a blade would last a week, switching to every other day is easier on my skin but the blade still lasts just a week. I know it sound like the I am being frivolous, but I simply just can't use a blade beyond that amount of time without ripping my face apart and having ingrown hairs all over the place.

Maybe it's the way you shave? I shave 5 days a week and probably go around 2 months on a blade. Even then I don't cut myself.

Quote from: CSL on March 22, 2008, 04:30:29 AM

Fox News has been the no. 1 news agency going after this and i'm certain they'd skew the story no matter if the paster was black, white, asian, or latino.

Chris Wallace criticizes Fox & Friends for "two hours of Obama bashing" in which hosts "distort what Obama had to say"

Not a huge Wallace fan, but this was pretty good. He came on to promote his Sunday Fox News show during "Fox and Friends". It was supposed to be a nice little banter piece but instead Wallace came down on them and accused them of cutting the Obama quote after "typical white person" and not including the rest of the quote. F&F guys were speechless and looked to be pretty pissed. I guess afterwards one of them even walked off set he was so mad.

Edit: I am mistaken on that last sentence, Brian Kilmeade walked off the set because he was upset the other 2 wouldn't quit the Obama bashing not because he was upset with Wallace.

Thanks to Mr Fed at OO for an update.

It appears the movies producer had a biologist featured in the movie kicked out of a pre-screening. They didn't realize that said biologist was with Richard Dawkins and let him in.

PZ Myers blog about it. His blog has various other links in about the event and the movie. Surprisingly it sounds like the movie sucks.

You have to own the .WAD file so I dont see it as piracy. I have both DOOm(somewhere) And DOOM II(again somewhere). But Im not sure I can use it without a homebrew operating system. If thats the case Ill skip it for now.

You definitely can't do it without homebrew. This is why all of us homebrew people tell everybody else to get it. biggrin

Wouldn't it be easier to just load it on the PC and play it with a mouse if for some strange reason I actually wanted to play the game again? Tongue

Go with the G (cheaper one). The other just seems to have more options for advanced stuff you would never use. I have the G and it works great and does everything you could want it to, meaning it will work with your PSP.
