Philosophy, Religion & Society / I think the Muslims got it right.

Jesus can't have been the son of God. He was clearly just a prophet. He never showed any sign of omnipotence at all.

Arts & Entertainment / So DCU Online Went Free To Play
« on: November 24, 2011, 05:56:10 AM »
And the download is supposedly 14.6 GB. I am now downloading it on a portable broadband connection. Good thing I'll get to play it before Christmas, though. Hopefully.

Technology, Science & Alt Science / DRM on music CD's
« on: November 09, 2011, 12:40:37 AM »
So I caved in and bought a CD this weekend for the first time since I bought the latest Hammerfall album back in 2006. Feeling proud that I did a good deed and supported an artist I like economically (Though not by much, admittedly), I popped that sucker into my computer's CD slot and opened Winamp. That's when the entire computer seized up and nothing but a hard reboot could snap it out of it. That was weird. I tried again for good measure and was delighted to find that the entire system did not freeze up this time. This time, only Winamp and the instance of Explorer in which I had double-clicked the CD froze. I realise the CD was released by EMI, but is this really deemed necessary? I have the entire Mike Oldfield discography already, so this was more about paying my due than genuinely wanting to listen to the CD, but by the nine divines, I purchased the right to listen to that singular recording on one device without it bleeding over to my neighbours for fear of copyright violation, and I'm going to do that if I have to dig out my actual CD player from 1997! Does anyone else have this problem with store-bought CD's?

Arts & Entertainment / So I downloaded the Humble Voxatron Debut
« on: November 02, 2011, 01:22:36 AM »
It was an okay game, and it runs like a dream even on my hunk of junk laptop. However, I was disappoint. I'm stuck at a level and it's an enemy clusterfuck which I cannot defeat. However, today I got a mail that told me Blocks That Matter and The Binding of Isaac have been added to the humble bundle and will be available for download if you pay more than the average amount. So, if you're at all interested in any of these three games and are willing to pay more than $4.54 as of the writing of this post, where some or all of the money will go to a good cause, go buy the Humble Bundle today!

No, really!




Honestly, if I were part of the PC crowd, I would be much more offended by the fact that this poster implies that suicide bombing is a legitimate expression of middle-eastern culture than at the fact that a frat boy thought it would be funny to dress up as a terrorist for Halloween. This is not politically correct, it's stupid. If terrorism doesn't deserve ridicule, nothing does. Catering to terrorists means that they've achieved their goal.

This is part of a series with the other posters displaying things like mariachi costumes, geisha costumes and some chick who painted herself brown. The mariachi and geisha are actually cultural phenomena and the brown chick is just being racist, but this is not an expression of culture. This is a costume of a murderer.

Arts & Entertainment / Thundercats
« on: October 25, 2011, 05:57:43 AM »
A remake/sequel of Thundercats is airing on Cartoon Network right now and I must say, I'm really enjoying it. They've decided to go a bit of a different path with it this time, having the Thundercats on the run from a much larger force consisting mostly of Slythe and his lizard horde in service to Mumm-Ra. Have you watched any episodes? Do you have any opinions on it or the original series?

Arts & Entertainment / Urban Dead
« on: August 11, 2011, 11:03:14 AM »
http://www.urbandead.com/index.html

A massively multiplayer web-based zombie apocalypse(mmw-bza). Before you fucks jump on the "OLD!"-bandwagon, I have known of this game's existence for several years, but recently started playing again. And really, some people might not have played it. It's not like it was a runaway success. I made a zombie character simply because I felt it was more fun to start as a zombie, even though I've now spent a bit of time as both a revivified survivor and a zombie. I must say that just berserking and attacking anything that moves when playing a zombie works surprisingly well. Levelling is a bitch when playing a survivor, but it took me barely a day to level from two to three once I'd gotten neck lurch.

The Lounge / Is the sky really blue?
« on: June 03, 2011, 03:51:21 AM »
It always seemed more cyan than blue to me. On another note, today is a good day. Not a cloud in the sky, not a care in the world.

Arts & Entertainment / Terraria
« on: May 31, 2011, 12:15:00 PM »
Well, it's been out for a while now. Terraria is a 2D side-scrolling RPG/sandbox game with fully destructible terrain, a crafting system and a town building aspect. Yes, it's like Minecraft, but in 2D. Have any of you played it yet? I haven't bought it yet, but let's say that I've been borrowing a friend's steam account. I find it very different from Minecraft in that the focus is a lot more on exploration and combat than in Minecraft. Once you've built your little town, you're off to explore the land above and below ground level and find new, unique items, defeat bosses and discover the secrets of the deep. Also, it has separate character and world saves, which makes up for the fact that the maps are limited in size.(Asopposedtominecraft *HRM*!)

It's not far-fetched to compare every single aspect of it to Minecraft, but the game really stands on its own and is different enough that it's worth playing. Even though I hear that the developers are raving mad and have among other things flagged youtube videos for copyright offences because they called it a Minecraft rip-off.

The Lounge / The word, "Gamer"
« on: May 30, 2011, 11:20:04 PM »
Why do people insist on using it to describe what they sometimes do on a lazy sunday afternoon? Just think about the word. Does it not conjure up every neck-bearded, mouth-breathing, immature, overweight negative stereotype you know about these people? I know it does in me, and I love playing miscellaneous games as a hobby. The funny thing is that I know many self-proclaimed gamers who claim to be tired of the labels that go along with their hobby while gladly branding themselves with the label of "gamer." The geeky clothes and (un)witty tees don't exactly help either. And anyway, why would we let our hobbies define us as people any more than our jobs, eye colour or favourite carbonated beverage?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Judgment Day On The 21st Of May
« on: May 12, 2011, 03:46:47 AM »
http://www.ebiblefellowship.com/outreach/tracts/may21/

How very bothersome! It seems that old upstart God is up to his old tricks again. According to the eBible Fellowship, this Judgement will take place in only nine days from now! Oh no! Should we repent now, or is this something better saved for the final day for dramatic effect once all the good Christians start bamfing up into heaven? I've never been on a real Judgment Day before, so I would appreciate any guidance I can get. Oh, and just in case we godless Atheist heathens get left back on Earth, we need not worry! According to the eBible Fellowship, we have just 5 months left of our pitiful, Godless existence before the world is consumed by flame and all life expires! Remember, God promised never to drown the world in a flood again, but he never mentioned the very Flames of Hell! Peace be upon you lost souls, I'm going to go accept Jesus as my lord and savior.

Arts & Entertainment / I bought The Last Legion on DVD
« on: May 02, 2011, 03:58:17 PM »


I know, shocking, right? Wendy bought a piece of media. Anyway, I was wondering if anyone had seen it and/or had any comments? I mostly bought it because I saw on the cover that Aishwarya Rai was in it, and I've become a bit infatuated with her as an actress.

The Lounge / Important Real-World Advice
« on: February 15, 2011, 11:22:40 PM »
ITT, we post important advice for the real world that is actually helpful. I'll start:
If someone tells you, "I'm an expert," don't trust them. If someone is introduced as an expert and says, "it's what it says in the job description," you're welcome to put your life in their hands.

18
Could someone please explain this BS to me? I mean, come on. It goes against the very rules set up by Christianity in the first place. Even if it were a physical possibility, which it isn't, the bible clearly states that this is impossible. Christians, enlighten me as to what I read wrong, please?

I will. My statement still stands, though. Clever move.

Ya,  ::).

Because it would be totally clever to openly lie to get Gayer jailed if she were innocent.

Have you played this game before?

The Lounge / Snow Cones vs Snowballs vs Kakigouri
« on: January 08, 2011, 05:22:31 PM »
What the hell is the difference? As you explain with your obviously superior intellect, also feel free to post your favourite out of the three.

The Lounge / Can you use an adverb on an adverb?
« on: January 07, 2011, 03:25:25 AM »
For example, is the sentence, "Twilight is hilariously badly written" grammatically correct?

And who here will play it?

Arts & Entertainment / Deliverance
« on: October 29, 2010, 01:42:15 AM »
I just watched it. The infamous hillbilly rape scene wasn't as bad as I had imagined, although the movie was filmed in the 70's, so obviously the shock value would have been higher back then. All in all, it was sort of a realistic thriller story. Something like this could have happened for real in my opinion, which lends to the feeling of realism. I also really like the music, even though it's rather sparse. Have you seen it? What did you think of it?

Arts & Entertainment / Has anybody played YouTube Snake yet?
« on: September 01, 2010, 01:42:27 PM »
Well? Anybody?

For more information on this phenomenon, go to YouTube, click on any video, click in the middle of it when it hasn't loaded, and use the arrow keys to steer the little loading snake.

The Lounge / Wendy's Medical Tip of the Week
« on: September 01, 2010, 03:38:15 AM »
If your anus starts bleeding every time you defecate for an entire week, it's probably a good idea to see a doctor about it.

However, if the bleeding produces no pain at all and is very minimal, you probably just need to eat more fibre, and less metal shavings. You stupid, stupid person, you.

This has been Wendy's Medical Tip of the Week. Tune in next week for another great tip!

Technology, Science & Alt Science / i-dosing
« on: July 22, 2010, 04:32:58 AM »
Anybody heard of this? I read a newspaper article in a Swedish newspaper on it, so it's probably pretty old.



I'm listening to Gates of Hades right now. Most boring piece of shit ever. All it is is a low humming noise fading into static and then fading back again with varying frequencies. Whoever gets high on this must really be pushing the placebo factor.

Conclusion: People who get high on noise music are either gullible or desperate.

Arts & Entertainment / Iron Man 2
« on: June 18, 2010, 08:44:26 AM »
Why did Hammer Industries have a prototype Iron Man knock-off armour that could spin the torso 180 degrees? I mean, at what point in the development did someone look at the thing, and go "This shit needs to be able to snap our pilot's spine like a twig! Genius!"?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / How come...
« on: April 16, 2010, 12:50:20 PM »
Christians get to choose when the bible is being literal, and when it's not? And why does anyone get to choose? Shouldn't it be all symbolism or all literal? I'm still unclear on this. When did we get the okay from the big fellow to say that the inspired, infallible word of God is only being symbolical when it says that you can't make a fire on the sabbath?

Mine are to play tabletop games all day tomorrow and on sunday. FUCK YEAH!!!! I might also take a quick trip to Kenya to bro-fist a lion Because I'm HARDCORE.




I WANT YOU TO TELL ME YOUR WEEKEND PLANS.
