1122  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Do you play the Lottery? on: February 15, 2006, 11:51:40 PM
The odds are always the same.

To put it in perspective; according to the odds you have a better chance of being a guest on the Tonight Show than winning the lottery.

1124  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why small government is a bad idea on: February 14, 2006, 08:29:01 PM
Why does everything have to be so BIG with you.

You have two slimeballs who either were criminals or by gaining access to the offices they were elected to decided to abuse that office.  They were bad people doing bad things and they got caught.  This doesnt have anything to do with how big/small, powerful/powerless government is.
1125  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 14, 2006, 08:25:21 PM
I didnt stretch anything.

You take half of what somene says and make a claim on it.

When you state "he was hunting illegally" it certainly sounds different than "he was hunting illegally because he did not have the proper stamp on his hunting license".
1126  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why small government is a bad idea on: February 14, 2006, 07:48:32 PM
"These people were fairly elected, therefore everything they do is legal by it's very nature!!!!"
"These charges are nothing more than jealous accusations by people who can't win elections!!!!"

No one said any of that.

What I am saying is how the hell do you manage to make some leap from two government officials in the same small town being corrupt to small/less government is bad?
1127  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 14, 2006, 01:13:18 PM
I like how unbreakable leaves out information.

The VP did have a valid hunting license, what he did not have was the correct stamp for the type of birds.  He was given a warning citation, which according to local authorities is routine.
1128  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Why small government is a bad idea on: February 14, 2006, 01:09:03 PM
Ok so one instance of two corrupt people in a small towns government means that smaller governement wont work?  How do you draw this conclusion?  We have to have a massive government structure to protect us from corruption?

If you only have $500 go to the bank and put it into a bond or CD, get one for five years or something.

If you put the money into a fund you have to look at the fee's they charge.  Even if you do not actually do anything they still charge fee's and this could easliy degrade the initial investment.
1130  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 09:59:00 PM
Unbreakable let me say this very clearly.  What I have stated is that they are not required to notify the MEDIA.  Local authorites and the media are two different things, at least in my world maybe not yours.

The MEDIA is angry because they were not told for 20 hours.  I think the real reason the media is angry is that a small town paper scooped them.

once they arrested him I am sure he was run through the system.  you can have a warrant and not even know about it.

I registered my car after moving to GA and six months later I got a summons to court.  Somehow I managed to get a traffic ticket three months before I had even moved to the state.  I figured they either recycled the license plate or a cop screwed up when writing the numbers down.  Went to the clerks office and show them that I still lived in VA at the time and they wiped out the ticket for me.  Had I not gotten the mailing or been pulled over I would have very likely been wearing matching silver bracelets.
1132  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 05:03:21 PM
Disclose to who?  Secret Service provided aid and an ambulance took the man to the hospital.

If you are on a hunting outing and you accidentally shoot someone.  Are you required to notify the local news media?  No you are not and neither is the Vice President.  What you are required to do is make sure the person gets appropriate medical care and part of doing so is reporting to local authorities that a shooting took place.
1133  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 04:26:45 PM
Your point being what?  There is no requirement for people in government to tell anything to the press.
1134  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Give the Vice President a gun and look what happens on: February 13, 2006, 12:21:12 PM
unbreakable there was no 24 hour waiting period.  The man was treated immediately by the secret service and taken to a hospital by ambulance.  A local newspaper reported the story first.
1135  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / [DEMO] Battle for Middle Earth II on: February 13, 2006, 03:23:36 AM
I managed to bag Gollum in the last game I played and got the ring from him.  I used Shelob to transport the ring back to my fortress, she was level 10 and it bumped her damage big time.  Once you get it to the fortress you keep gaining power points to spend on the specials.  I still think drogoth is bery cool but the Balrog will give him a run for the money.  Summoning him in is just sweet and all the attacks (the whip is very nice) he has are very well done.  If someone ever sends a Balrog at your armies just pray you have enough units to keep him busy until his timer runs out; he just sweeps things out of his way.  Did I mention that the Balrog can fly too.

That had to be a lot of work.  I do not see anyone wanting their house or apartment that way but for a hotel themed room that would be slick.

It mentions he tried to e-bay the apartment for 2 million so he must own it.  Also the amount listed that he spent is in british pounds so he must be in the UK.
1138  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Unique set of M & Ms on: February 12, 2006, 10:16:18 PM
I toured an Mars plant in New Jersey once.  We got to see the odball products that get made by accident.  We saw a peanut M&M that got stuck in the chocolate sprayer (its like a dryer that tumbles with a bunch of peanuts in it) the thing was the size of a small boys head.  The regular M&m's go throught printing machines that hit about 50 at a time with the mark.

In our gift bag we had one of every Mars candy, the M&M guy belt, M&M guy stuffed fridge magnets and an M7M gumball style dispenser.

ran just fine on my system and I even forgot and left MS office mail running in the background.

Medium graphics and I think I ran it at 1280x1024
AMD athlon 2500 barton
1 Gb ram
256 MB video card radeon 9550

I particularly liked the dragon hero that the goblins get.  He has some way cool attacks; a fireball and a fire missile that looks like a dragon made of fire.  Watching him knock down and scatter enemy formations was pretty awesome too.

I also like how you can see upgrades on the units; banners, shiny weapons etc.

It is funny that you can say both parties are buggered and that is not good enough for our democratic members here.

"Yeah well the repbulicans are way more screwed up than we are".

Political and religous discussions on the internet by and large do not come to an agreement.
1142  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Don't sell coke to uniformed officers...dumbass on: February 04, 2006, 02:49:12 PM
A guy in our security detachment at Quantico had been a police officer before joing the Marines.  He was in his police uniform driving in to work and was around the corner from his station.  A guy with a knife walked over to his car tapped on the window and told him thru the closed window that he was being carjacked.  He reached over to the passenger seat and picked up his pistol and pointed it at the guy (window still closed).  The guy ran so he went to the station told the duty sergeant and the guy was picked up right away.
1143  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cop tells airman to get up, airman gets up & is shot on: February 04, 2006, 02:44:41 PM
ok who has the thread jack emoticon?

Both political parties are just as screwed up as the other, and they both do the same corrupt bullshit.

All I know is dont accept a ride from a Kennedy, accept but do not smoke a cigar that former Pres. Clinton offers you, do not say on the phone that you are a terrorist when making an overseas phone call.
1144  Non-Gaming / Off-Topic / Cop tells airman to get up, airman gets up & is shot on: February 03, 2006, 02:40:19 PM
The guy taking the video said that the cop told the person on the ground to "Get up" and then shot him.

They guy even says "ok I am getting up" before he starts to stand.  

My opinion the cop told him to get up so he could shoot him.  If he had onboard video with no sound in the car it would look like he was justified.  What he didnt think about is that darn near every person owns a video camera and someone else was running tape.

We have gone so far that this is just beyond ridiculous.  If found guilty this is a federal offense, he would lose his right to vote or own a weapon.

When I think of what I went through in Marine boot camp in 1985 this is nothing compared to that.

CARLSON:  Characterize it for—did he say I want to sleep with you?  I mean, give us one sense of what he said.

GITTINS:  He commented on a battleship and how battleships got him excited.  

CARLSON:  Give him an erection looking at a battleship, basically.  

GITTINS:  Exactly.  

CARLSON:  That‘s it?

GITTINS:  And said something to the female, about, you know, doesn‘t it do the same for you?  And the midshipman responded and then my client realized that he‘d gone probably over the line.  And he cut off the conversation, and he apologized for it the following day.  

He apologized and the midshipmen accepted his apology and she considered the matter closed.  She had no intention of making a sexual harassment claim.

1149  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WoW is anti gay? on: January 29, 2006, 06:58:50 AM
If someone is saying something that is against the TOS then the player has the option of reporting them.

I have never seen in the game at any time a player being attacked verbally based on their lifestyle choice; so to say they are an actively attacked minority is reaching I think.  I want to be clear that I am not saying that it never happens, i just do not agree that it is as large a problem as you are making it out to be.  If a player is going to attack someone because they disagree with how that player lives how is being in a guild going to protect you?  It doesnt stop chat or tells?

How are other players going to know that type of information about another player?  I am married and have a five year old and only a few people in my guild would know that.

1151  Gaming / Console / PC Gaming / WoW is anti gay? on: January 29, 2006, 06:31:08 AM
It is not stupid at all.  There is no sex in the game so why would they feel the need to advertise GLBT (which means what by the way i guess its Gay Lesbian Bi ????).

If you start to allow players to actively recruit for a section of the populace then what will you do when a white power guild forms or black power etc.  

Instead of bowing to the almighty politically correct bastion of diversity they have take a stand that they are not going to allow in game advertising of real world stuff that does not fit into the game world.  

Good for them.
