Honestly, I've never seen anything as pitiful as people screaming their heads off. For what? Scans? Dear lord, please tell me some of you have day jobs or other hobbies.

12. Trying out the Dialectizer :) Apr 21, 2003, 11:16 Morgan19

Here's an unpleasant anniversary ah' ran across while hangin' some bit uh pokin' around in de archive, dig dis...

Happy Easter! Right on!

Sprin' gots re-sprung around here... ah' suspect we'll only be in fo' one o' two mo'e blizzards between now and summer. Ah be baaad... ah' took advantage uh de weada' yesterday to play ranch-hand and repair de fence around da damn backyard (A.K.A. de doggie co'ral), which included completely demolished slats dat braced da damn latches dat hold bod gates shut. Man! A lesson learned, dig dis: wooden picket fences make fine deco'ashuns, but when ya' own one t'contain some 50 pound dog wid de strengd of a critta' twice ha' size, ya' gots some constant maintenance cho'e ahaid uh ya'.


Heeeheee... My god, I love it. We can't stop giggling like idiots at work.

(EDIT-) Whoops! I just realized that the Dialectizer wasn't an OotB link today, I was confused... I found it on whyamievenhere.com. In case people haven't seen it yet:

7. Re: #6 Apr 16, 2003, 15:51 Morgan19
 
Interesting definition of trolling you have, it almost comes off as a far, FAR stretch for something to throw on the boards. Please.

My (simple) point (that you seem to have missed) was that whining about release dates isn't going to change anything. Like I said, learn patience. It'd really work wonders. And in a month or two, who cares how long it took for the demo to be released? You'll either be moving on to other things or happily playing some other game. The shortsightedness & pre-teen volatility of members on these boards like you is absolutely ridiculous.

Yeah, because your whole life revolves around when a demo's released. Get over it. I'm also looking forward to it, and can wait. It's called patience.

Two small things, one nothing more than three lowercase letters, and you're writing off the entire book? Yikes.

Why aren't people like him just banned from the boards? Seems like a waste of time & energy for Blue to go through and constantly *BA-LETE!!* his posts when we all know what those posts'll amount to anyway.

Heck no I didn't write it. I thought that was obvious! A buddy of mine named KungFool posted it up on the Heretic 2 message boards. And you know what? I'll bet HE didn't write it either! It made me laugh, hoped it would make some of you laugh. Sue me.

Wooooo, someone's got some pent-up anger. Don't go and throw a hissy fit, I was only pointing it out to whoever said it was good writing and asked you to do more.

The only original part of that entire post was the intro connecting blues music to Blue's. You can find the whole "this is blues" shpeel on any number of websites. Granted it is pretty funny, though.

11. Re: Scientists clone endangered cattle Apr 9, 2003, 14:51 Morgan19
 
You misunderstood. I didn't imply that humans themselves are artificial (obviously). The means by which we're expanding, growing, etc. was the subject. Perhaps artificial wasn't the right word, more like... overpowering, unnatural, unprecedented, take your pick.

My point was that extinction in the past was, as implied by the first post, due to "natural" causes like animals competing for food or a tiger eating a mouse. What humans have done and are doing goes way beyond anything that's ever happened in past history.

"We hope that the birth of these animals will open the way for a new strategy to help maintain valuable biodiversity and to respond to the challenge of large-scale extinctions ahead."

How?

This statement is fundamentally flawed. Animals go extinct because they are unable to compete in their natural habitat. Keeping these animals alive would be like keeping a candle lit in a rainstorm. Sure they could be part of some zoo somewhere, but don't expect their original niche to be accepting applications any time soon.

rist3903

Actually I think your take on extinction is what's flawed, rist. It's not so black'n'white as saying things can't compete, simply because WE are the major reason, an overwhelminly artificial force, that major extinction is happening in the first place. What used to take thousands or millions of years happens in decades now because humans are overrunning the planet. While it's true that some species should not be cloned because they died out naturally, how in the world can you possible say that we shouldn't try and bring back animals that we've come close to killing off completely for reasons like over-hunting, habitat destruction, or simply starving animals to death by ruining their environment? That's hardly natural selection. It's humans killing everything.

I'd agree that cloning, say, a dinosaur a-la Jurassic Park'd be a little ridiculous (and nevermind completely dangerous), but why *shouldn't* we try and bring back creatures like the leatherback seaturtle, Asian elephants, of Bengal tigers? It's our own fault, we should make an effort.

2. Typo! Apr 9, 2003, 08:55 Morgan19
 
...headlines automatically announce their present to RSS-enabled devices...

If I'm understanding the point of the sentence, shouldn't that read "announce their presence" rather than present? Or maybe "announce they're present" would make sense too.

(EDIT-) Yeah yeah getting typos fixed.

News Comments > Breed Demo Delayed Again
8. Re: No subject Apr 2, 2003, 17:12 Morgan19
 
People act like all-knowing asses when things are released too early. This game sux0rz!!! They should've spent more time making it phun!!

People act like all-knowing asses when things are pushed back to make them better. This st00p1d game is vaporware, I say so!!!!"

My god, there's no pleasing some people. If it's delayed a bit, so what? You'll get over it, and 10 months from now you won't even care. Personally I think Breed'll be worth the wait as it looks to be a good successor for the T2 crowd, myself included. I wish some people would learn some patience and stop mouthing off every chance they get.

I quipped something in the other BF thread, but I have to say it again to whoever said it was a stealth bomber: the ignorance of some people these days is ridiculous. It's called history, trying learning about it. :|%)

I'm surprised at how many people are passing off historical facts and/or interpretationsas "ghey," I believe it was. Education, education, education.

1. Say huh? Apr 2, 2003, 09:05 Morgan19
 

The smaller company will protect the ordinary CD audio tracks against copying, while Microsoft will provide tools to put additional copy-protected versions of the songs on the CD that can be copied to a computer hard drive or MP3 player but not traded online.

I'm curious. An mp3 on a computer is a file, and (I'm not familiar enough with mp3 players) I'm assuming it's also a file on the mp3 player. So if it exists in either, how in the world can it "not be traded online?" If it's a file, you can transfer it. Smells like PR...

Blegh. That's the one single reason I gave up on the one cordless mouse I made the mistake of purchasing: having to change its batteries every 3-4 weeks is ridiculous. Even if you use rechargeables, it's more of a pain than it's worth.
