Suggestions & Concerns / Send the Scots to CN
« on: March 19, 2013, 05:59:40 PM »
Their little noob invasion is cute and all and yes I'm replying to their threads, but they should probably be moved to CN.  Yeah I could PM a mod but I don't even know who are mods anymore so deal with it.

Just gonna throw this in here:

Don't think I've seen anyone put the anti-prohibition position more clearly and plainly than this guy does on this news broadcast.  Thought it might be worth putting up on here.  Inb4fishcop

Is Jell-O;
a) a gas
b) a solid
c) a fluid
d) a liquid

Evidence please.

Which shitty flip phone equivalent should I get for free now?  I'm with Sprint.

The Lounge / If the next forum game takes place in a wild west setting...
« on: October 13, 2012, 08:38:56 AM »
I'll play.  I'm hot off of playing the card game "Bang," and I think it'd be fun on the forums.

Shouldn't those whose bans have long since ended be removed from this list?  I feel it is uncouth to leave people in the stockade after they've done their time.

Suggestions & Concerns / Please unban-

Please unban my friend and colleague Pizza (P), I do believe he has done his time.

Arts & Entertainment / Th*rk told you so.

It was 12 years ago this summer. Riding hard, Armstrong fiddled with the collar of his bright yellow Tour de France leader’s jersey and tugged its back, getting comfortable in the saddle for one of his trademark attacks.

Then, a few minutes later, he was off, literally like a rocket, leaving rivals for dead and making the towering Mont Ventoux look like little more than a speed bump.

The physical strength he showed that July 13 at the 2000 Tour was mind-boggling. And there were so many other equally mind-boggling moments in the other six Tours he won.

I was there for some of them. The power of Armstrong on the bike, the mix of steely charm and cold, single-minded determination, was like nothing I’d ever seen — both then and since.

Which is why it’s even more mind-boggling to think that none of this really happened. Gone. Expunged. Erased by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency and its finding that the bulk of his career was built on lies and banned performance-enhancing drugs.

The utter destruction of the Lance Armstrong myth, the man seemingly so tough that he not only beat cancer but won the world’s toughest bike race a record seven times, is going to take quite some time to digest.

Other commentators will talk about how this will affect the cancer survivors Armstrong inspired and the foundation he set up to fight the disease. And only the most cynical will say that that side of Armstrong should crumble along with his status as a sporting icon.

You can't win anything without drugs.  Th*rk told us all but we just didn't listen.  Maybe he isn't so unhinged after all.

Suggestions & Concerns / Robosteve & Parsifal?
« on: August 05, 2012, 10:28:20 AM »
Is the new Robosteve account Parsifal's test account (since Th*rk gets one), or someone else's alt?  If the latter why hasn't this been addressed?

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Chick-Fil-A hates fags
« on: July 18, 2012, 10:20:54 PM »
It's true:

Chick-Fil-A President Dan Cathy has described gay marriage supporters as "arrogant" for going against God on marriage.

Isn't it a little arrogant asserting that your worldview is paramount to others'?  It's one thing to have conviction in your faith, it's another entirely to project that conviction onto others.

I don't eat at Chick-Fil-A in the first place, but I can safely say that I definitely won't now.

Philosophy, Religion & Society / Transvestitism and transgender
« on: June 08, 2012, 07:11:10 PM »
I was sort of interested in how the Supertails' Avatar thread was going for a brief moment when speaking of women dressing as men, and as we all know I like to wear women's clothing, so I was thinking there should be a thread devoted to just that.  There are three basic categories of men who dress as women:

Those individuals with a desire to wear the clothing of the other sex but not to change their sex are termed crossdressers. Most crossdressers view themselves as heterosexual men who like to wear women's clothing in private or in public, and may even occasionally fantasize about becoming a woman. Once referred to as a transvestite, crossdresser has become the term of choice.

Transgenderists are men and women who prefer to steer away from gender role extremes and perfect an androgynous presentation of gender. They incorporate elements of both masculinity and femininity into their appearance. Some persons may see them as male, and by others as female. They may live part of their life as a man, and part as a woman, or they may live entirely in their new gender role but without plans for genital surgery.

Men and women whose gender identity more closely matches the other physical sex are termed transsexual. These individuals desire to rid themselves of their primary and secondary sexual characteristics and live as members of the other sex.

Transsexuals are diagnostically divided into the sub-categories of Primary or Secondary. Primary transsexuals display an unrelenting and high degree of gender dysphoria, usually from an early age (four to six years of age). Secondary transsexuals usually come to a full realization of their condition in their twenties and thirties, but may not act on their feelings until they are much older. Typically, secondary transsexuals first go through phases that would be self-assessed as being a "crossdresser or transgenderist."

So here's the Get To Know Nomud part: Despite that thread I posted being in CN, it's true and I'd put myself somewhere between the first two.  Probably more the first.  There are days I feel like perhaps I am in the wrong body, but at the same time I'm fine with my penis and I think vaginas are spooky.  That said, I'm heterosexual*.

What does FES feel about this topic?

*I'm attracted to feminine qualities and although I don't know how I'd feel about another dude's dick near me in an intimate capacity, if I were dating someone who in all intents and purposes is a woman, but turns out to have a dick, I think I'd be OK with that.

Are you aware of Ne Obliviscaris, and do you care for them at all?  If so, do you know of any similar bands?  I really like their post-rock elements with the violin and want to hear more like it.  Already excited for their album to finally come out soon.

She's at the doc.  Give her e-hugs and show your support.

I understand they intend to have a manned moon base built in 2023.  What does this mean for Capitalism?  Will we let those red dogs win?

So they're gonna throw a few rovers up there and set up shop after a couple years.  I for one think this is pretty sweet.

Technology, Science & Alt Science / Hamachi issues
« on: April 12, 2012, 10:37:37 AM »
Anyone have any idea why sometimes having my Hamachi connection enabled cuts out my internet? A restart seems to fix it usually, but otherwise it's been bothering me a while. I tried re-ordering my connection priorities, but it doesn't seem to make any difference. Disabling the Hamachi connection fixes it temporarily, but I need to use Hamachi for work--moreso now than ever now that I'm getting bumped to full time soon!

Note that this issue always happens after I wake the machine up from sleep mode, but doesn't necessarily always happen; it's pretty random as to when it does happen.

The Lounge / A Friendly Chat
« on: March 23, 2012, 05:59:56 PM »
So in response to this thread, since those who replied are in favor of the thread, and nobody has made it yet, I thought I'd go ahead and make it happen.  This thread has no official topic, just with the intent of being somewhere for everyone here to talk about random things that don't quite merit their own topic, but may be interesting enough to share.  You may certainly talk about personal issues here, but let's try to keep it from being the LiveJournal thread.  Also the thread title is subject to chance since this is the only thing I could think of (although I considered "The Friends Zone" which was mildly amusing but may give the wrong impression to newcomers as to what the thread's about)

Myself, I've been off of my full time job on medical leave, due to some unexplained pain in my foot for the last month and a half.  Turns out, as I found out today at the podiatrist, I have a bunch of tiny stress fractures in the bones connecting my 2nd and 3rd toes ("index" and middle toes) on my left foot, she said most likely due to the fact that I have zero arch and an unusual amount of the load of my weight gets transferred to the wrong parts of my feet when I walk.  She wants me to stay off it for at least the next three months, which totally blows because I'm getting sick of sitting at home like a neckbeard playing vidyagames all day (which I would never have imagined I would say that.)

On the bright side, she's submitting me for disability so at least I shouldn't have to worry about my bills now.  I've managed to barely scrape by with my part-time, side job, but it wouldn't sustain me forever at this rate.

So there that is.  Anything interesting going on with any of you?

Arts & Entertainment / DC Universe Online

Anyone play this "game?"  On which platform?

For the unaware it's Free to Play now.  So far I've just been engrossed with making characters, but it plays OK.  My only problem with it so far is targetting is kind of off.  I hold the lock-on button and half the time end up trying to punch a barrel while I'm being swarmed by enemies.  Oh well.

Arts & Entertainment / DC Comics New 52
« on: September 16, 2011, 07:00:15 PM »
No one replied to my other thread, but thought I'd try again.  Anyone read any of the new #1 comics yet?  I got Detective Comics #1 and it was pretty fucking sweet.  Batman is starting of on a totally brutal note, and I can't wait to see what Joker is up to!

For the unaware, DC is currently in the process of rebooting basically their entire catalog of comics and starting everything at #1, which for some of the series' this hasn't happened since the 70's.  I still suggest checking out the Flashpoint comics that were sort of a ending for the old and precursor for the new universe.

Any other nerds out there up on this?  I'm excited/nervous/skeptical about the upcoming DC reboot.  Discuss.

Hay guise remember me?  Finally got internet in the new apartment.  Also have a girlfriend so going to the library for internet just hasn't happened.  You can expect my lovely face around more often now, though.

And came back to FES to find pretty much nothing happened.  I think we're coming on another dry spell.
