I'm assuming the glaxed over white eyes thing means there powers are in effect? I mean you don't see it with Hiro since he shuts his eyes but it seems when other people are in the "power zone" there eyes turn white. Just something I've observed anyway.

May I ask what city/state you live in?

I think around 20 states now have "Old West" style laws where you can kill anyone in your home OR outside of your home if you feel in the least bit threatened. These laws tend to remove criminal AND civil liability where action occurs.  Michigan enacted one on September 26th that authorizes lethal force for anyone, even if they aren't on your property any longer..  Here is the current status of Lethal Force Laws;



In fact, this might be pretty odd, but I actively PLAN for the situation in my mind, and reherse it, and have preparations throughout the house for such an event. The wife and kids, well they know what button to push (part of the nice little renovation and gutting of the house last year included an integrated security/video system with hidden panic buttons in every room), and where the panic room is, so thats what is important for them.  Me, well, I go for the weaponry.  icon_wink

My advice, take this incident, learn from it, and plan for the next one.  Even if it doesn't happen, it will be great assurances on your mind when you can't be home with the wife/kids.  It is really a tragic thing to have your private space invaded, nothing makes anyone feel more vulnerable or angry..  So I know EXACTLY what you are feeling..

About the preparation thing, my dad used to know a guy that he shot with. When his house was being built he had metal plates installed in key areas of the home and a map of where they were so in the event of a robbery or something else he knew which walls to hide behind knowing the other person can't shoot through them.

That is planning.

What is the point of the retreating thing? What determines when they do it and when they don't. Like if I go to cap a remote ammo or fuel depot somewhere my guys just all of sudden run back.

I don't think the gf would appreciate me posting a picture of her.

That's okay.  Girls don't read GT, right? icon_wink

I don't know whether I am relieved or saddened to learn WBS isn't actually a 400 pound black woman.  On the internet that nym is even money.

Finally, I reccomend radiant pubes pick up a better camera.  Might I reccomend the recent digital camera thread?


Problem is that she is a gamer girl she might stumble upon the website one of these days heh smile

My Dad gave me this for my 21st birthday:





Reminds me that I need to clean it since I last shot it....

Oh this was the original home defense gun, which has now been replaced by my Dads glock .40 which he loves. It has a home defense load which has the 1st shot as BBs then a soft shot then hollow point and FMJ. Make sure the 1st shot is the BBs so you know that if the gun gets taken from you the 1st shot won't kill you, just hurt like hell.

It is also wireless so you can log in from it and download music. It sounds very interesting acually. If it does more than the Ipod and it costs a lot less, just as user friendly I think it'll do well.

I mentioned at both OO and BC that this is a really good album and only got a couple responses agreeing. Now if they had some big titted women in the band or on the cover I probably could have gotten more people interested but alas it has neither.

To me it's like they made every song a tribute to an influence. One song channels Black Sabbath, another Led Zepplin, another the Beatles, there's even a little Jethro Tull flute in a song, Love Train has a neat little Rolling Stones sounding opening.

This is by far my favorite album of the last 5 years.


Kratz said "nice" and that was all that needed to be said.

I'll upgrade for this too. I mean shit, it's TA. What other game let me build 10 big berthas and Then I let them all fire at will at anything red and you could just hear the thunder of the artillery. It acually sounded like artillery.....Where I spent hours building enough power generators to get my vulcan able to fire continuously. Watching that chaingun rip through anything and everything and see the shells fly everywhere.


Or make a 100 fighters and watching them go into a V on the map as they all fired at one thing.  Or that same 100 fighters colliding into another 100 fighters turning into a giant dog fight.

No other game has been able to match the scale of TA. The only game that could do it, is anothter TA. And from that shitty quality video camera, I felt sorry for that little strip of land.


It looks like they've done it again. Long live TA.

Not sure if this would be any help or not but what about the navy or army or something? They all pretty much have a university program you do a couple years in the navy or something see the world and all that some skills and make friends and basically they rebuild you from the ground up. Might give focus to your life and it might not.

Either I speak wisdom or my I'm speaking out of my ass I'm not sure.

The style is called vector art, basically what you do is take a regular picture and out line it getting every little detail or no detail and then filling it in with different colors. Like the lady I got now the picture it was based off of was horrible it was blurry and bad but the vector artist took that really bad picture and made what my BG is, and  I think it is stunning.

http://browse.deviantart.com/digitalart/vector/?view=1&order=9&limit=24

That is a link to the vector art section in deviant art sorted by favorites so you get the best first. I think vectoring anything is kind of like taking a picture in black and white. Sometimes you get caught up in the detail of a picture but if you vector it it brings out a lot of other things you never saw before.
