What better way to spend these dark cold days than in a big pile! Not that I would know anything about that

I put the grrrr in swinger baby, yeah!

I did?

Wait a minute...you're Mr. Lebowski. I'm "the Dude", man.

Good thing we don't have near as many rabid Jesus freaks as the U.S. does or you'd never hear the end of something like that. Goddamn, Jesus freaks really piss me off.

And Warhawk, you're of German stock? Well, well, well, that would certainly explain a lot.

I can see Warhawk dressing up as Santa, slipping on his black jackboots, goosestepping around the neighborhood asking children for 'zeir papahs', interrogating them if they've been naughty or nice.

Heh, I am of course, just fucking with you, man.

35. EQII Rooby Roo! Dec 21, 2005, 14:34 Halsy
 
Anyone playing or played EQ2 for a while? Quite frankly I'm bored and looking for a new MOG to play. WoW, while good just doesn't have nearly enough content. CoH/CoV while fun in short bursts really isn't worth a monthly fee IMO. I hated GW. I'm trying the EQ2 trial and it seems ok.
Is this game really guild oriented or soloable?

Makes me think of AntiElvis.

Anyway, chalk one up for the good guys. Had the religious kooks had their way they'd also be teaching alchemy in chemistry, flat-earth theory in geography, numerology in math, and astrology in astronomy.

Hez, to quote The Dude..."What the fuck are you talking about, man?".

To me, it seems that when people have trouble attributing something to a deity, it is because they don't see any "proof" that there is a deity.

That's because there isn't any proof there's a deity or deities, never has been, never will be, because they don't exist. This isn't to say there aren't higher/more advanced forms of life in the universe because the odds are they actually do exist. But, as Arthur C. Clarke said, any sufficiently advanced technology is going to seem like magic to those who don't understand it.

On the other hand, people who attribute things to deity are generally willing to make a leap of faith. They believe that deity purposefully does not create the babel fish--or provide hard evidence of his/her/its existence--so that people must rely on faith to a degree

No, it means because the question of why X exists or how Y was made hasn't been answered - yet, or not fully - than it must be the work of some all-powerful deity. It was like the first cavemen - you know, the ones that existed 100's of 1000's of years before the earth was supposed to even exist according to "some people" - when they saw fire, it was attributed to the supernatural because they did not understand how or why it happened. This lack of reasoning carries over to anything today that people still don't understand and therefore attribute it to some all powerful being(s).

Don't get me wrong, even as a person of faith I think some people attribute way too much to deity.

It's a good step forward for you, but no one should be attributing anything to any deity without proof. Faith is a set of blinders the believers desperately need to remove so this world can get on with evolving and moving forward. Religion is indeed the opiate of the masses.

In addition, I am all for finding out how and why things work; I reckon deity operates according to certain unalterable laws. I'm all for finding out, technically, whether we evolved or were "placed" on earth. I don't think one precludes the other.

Unalterable laws? Not in this universe. And the fact is that we did evolve on earth, unless by placed you mean some asteroid with cellular life crashed into earth a few billion years ago and that's how it all started. Take any creationist viewpoint you want from any major or minor religion from the past 10,000 years and none of them were/are true.

Further, the biggest joke with ID is, how do you establish which intelligence created life on earth? You know damn well they're talking about the Americanized white xtian god, and not anything from the Greek/Roman/Norse/Sumerian/Egyptian/Akkadian/Assyrian/Babylonian/Hittite/Incan/Chinese/Japanese/et al. religions and mythologies. And we can leave out extra-terrestrials too.

ID really is nothing more than a backdoor attempt to inject religious mumbo-jumbo where it doesn't belong. It doesn't belong in the science classroom. I have zero problem if people want to take an elective course on comparitive religions where they can throw that in for sport, but the American Taliban trying to drag America back into the superstitious Dark Ages isn't needed, nor desired by most people.

Attribute whatever you want to a deity, you're only cheating yourself.

http://snltranscripts.jt.org/91/91gcaveman.phtml

Announcer: [ over SUPER ] "One hundred thousand years ago, a caveman was out hunting on the frozen wastes when he slipped and fell into a crevasse. In 1988, he was discovered by some scientists and thawed out. He then went to law school and became.. Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer.

Jingle: "He used to be a caveman,
but now he's a lawyer.
Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer!"

Announcer: Brought to you by.. Gas Plus - actually gives you gas, for those times when you feel like being the joker; and by National Escort Services - if we don't get a prostitute to your door in 15 minutes, you don't pay; and by Happy Fun Ball - still legal in 16 states - it's legal, it's fun, it's Happy Fun Ball! And now, tonight's episode of "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer".

[ open on interior, courtroom, the Judge banging her gavel ]

Judge: Mr. Cirroc, are you ready to give your summation?

Cirroc: [ stepping out] It's just "Cirroc", your Honor.. and, yes, I'm ready. [ approaches the jury box ] Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I'm just a caveman. I fell on some ice and later got thawed out by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes the honking horns of your traffic make me want to get out of my BMW.. and run off into the hills, or wherever.. Sometimes when I get a message on my fax machine, I wonder: "Did little demons get inside and type it?" I don't know! My primitive mind can't grasp these concepts. But there is one thing I do know - when a man like my client slips and falls on a sidewalk in front of a public library, then he is entitled to no less than two million in compensatory damages, and two million in punitive damages. Thank you.

Judge: The jury will now retire to deliberate.

Jury Foreman: [ standing ] Your Honor.. we don't need to retire. Cirroc's words are just as true now as they were in his time. We give him the full amount.

[ the jury applauds Cirroc ]

Judge: Did you hear that, Mr. Cirroc?

Cirroc: [ cell phone to his ear ] Hang on a second.. [ to the judge ] I-I'm sorry, your Honor. I was listening to the magic voices coming out of this strange modern invention! [ smiles maliciously to the camera ]

Announcer: This has been "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer". Join us next week for another episode. Here's a scene.

[ cut to Cirroc and his caveman family standing before a podium at a political rally ]

Cirroc: Thank you! Thank you very much, thank you! First of all, let me say how happy I am to be your nominee for the United States Senate! [ applause ] You know.. thank you.. I don't really understand your Congress, or your system of checks and balances.. because, as I said during the campaign - I'm just a caveman! I fell on some ice, and later got thawed out by scientists. But there is one thing I do know - we must do everything in our power to lower the Capitol Gains Tax. Thank you!

Must be handy attributing anything you don't understand to some sort of deity. It reminds me of "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer".

http://snltranscripts.jt.org/95/95pcavemanlawyer.phtml

Announcer: Brought to you by.. Lawn Destroyer - when you don't even care anymore; and by Cubic Yard of Earthworms - what you do with it is your business; and by Wilson Ear Drill - we don't recommend that you use an ear drill, but if you insist, why not get the best! And now, tonight's episode of "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer".

[ open on interior, courtroom, the Judge banging her gavel ]

Judge: Mr. Cirroc, are you ready to give your summation?

Cirroc: [ stepping out] It's just "Cirroc", your Honor.. and, yes, I'm ready. [ approaches the jury box ] Ladies and gentlemen of the jury, I'm just a caveman. I fell on some ice and was later thawed by some of your scientists. Your world frightens and confuses me! Sometimes when I fly to Europe on the Concorde, I wonder, am I inside some sort of giant bird? Am I gonna be digested? I don't know, because I'm a caveman, and that's the way I think! When I'm courtside at a Knicks game, I wonder if the ball is some sort of food they're fighting over. When I see my image on the security camera at the country club, I wonder, are they stealing my soul? I get so upset, I hop out of my Range Rover, and run across the fairway to to the clubhouse, where I get Carlos to make me one of those martinis he's so famous for, to soothe my primitive caveman brain. But whatever world you're from, I do know one thing - in the 20 years from March 22nd, 1972, when he first ordered that extra nicotine be put into his product, until February 25th, 1992, when he issued an inter-office memorandum stopping the addition of that nicotine, my client was legally insane. And, for that reason, I ask that you fine him.. not guilty. Thank you.

Judge: The jury will now retire to deliberate.

Jury Foreman: [ standing ] Your Honor.. I don't think we need to retire. Cirroc's words are just as true now as they were in his time. We find the defendent.. not guilty.

[ the jury applauds Cirroc ]

Judge: Did you hear that, Mr. Cirroc? [ no answer ] Mr. Cirroc?

Cirroc: [ watching a basketball game on a tiny TV ] I'm sorry, your Honor. I was watching the tiny men trapped inside this strange modern device! [ smiles maliciously to the camera ]

Announcer: "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer" has been brought to you by.. Chili-B-Gone - soothes eyes inflamed by chili spray; and by Spider Whistle - spiders come crawling when you start blowing, also works on certain ants. Next time, on "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer"..

[ cut to Cirroc in bed with a prostitute, smoking a cigarette ]

Cirroc: I'm just a caveman, your world frightens and confuses me. And I don't understand why I should pay you $200 for what we just did.

Prostitute: You always say that.

[ Cirroc leans back and laughs, as the scene freezes ]

Announcer: Next time, on "Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer".

I certainly hope the editor isn't nearly as cumbersome as the original one. You needed to have a team of professionals to do anything halfway decent with that editor. The learning curve was just way too steep. Plus the game looked like ass.

The new game looks like ass...hot, sexy ass.

I have no doubt it's porbably a cool little gadget, but I remember when Intel came out with MMX and how everyone was supposed to jump on board with that - and never did. And countless other cool next-gen hardware and software that was long on promise of everyone utilizing it and short on actualy delivery. Most any of the games that ever came out supporting such things sucked ass, and were little more than glorified tech demos.

Tom has the right of it, show me some GOOD titles being made, and I don't mean just 1 or 2, but several dozen - that would justify the cost of this thing. The videos you linked didn't really impress me at all.

62. UGO Players... Dec 19, 2005, 20:08 Halsy
 
Bleu, wth is up with this friggin' "UGO players" pop-up that keeps popping up all over here? Same with some of the other ads that are automatically open and force you to close them.I've never really complained about the advertising before, and I try to do my bit by clicking on one occassionally for you, but this is really starting to get annoying.

We understand advertising is a necessary evil, but it becoming that intrusive is over the top and will drive people away in the long run.

How does advertising enhance game-play? Advertising is a necessary EVIL in real-life that we have to cope with. One of the reasons we like to game is to escape he bullshit of the real-world - which very much includes advertising.

Thanks for the announcement though, THQ, now we'll all know whose games to avoid.

Games are already drastically overpriced, I'll quit gaming before I pay another dime - particularly when I'm subjected to something as stupid as advertising in-game.

Fuck you THQ. Seriously.

"There is no doubt that this is inappropriate," said Sen. Arlen Specter (news, bio, voting record), R-Pa., chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. He said there would be hearings early next year and that they would have "a very, very high priority." He wasn't alone in reacting harshly to the report. Sen.

So you're mad at Canada because the U.S. Ambassador tried to dictate - you know what Bushco like to do...dictate - what Canadians should and should not do? Fuckoff.

Canada doesn't hate America, it hates the American Taliban. When Clinton was in office it was nothing but good times. With Bushco it's not just Canada that hates the U.S. and it's all bad times.

The have running water now, they have elcetricity, their economy is growing, they have a stock market, they have freedom of speech, woman are no longer afraid.

Are you fucking stoned? Clearly you have zero idea what's really going on over there. And if invading a sovereign nation to save them was the right thing to do, what's stopped you going into a dozen African nations in the last 25 years to stop the ongoing genocide there? Those people are a million times worse off than Iraq ever was and for a lot fucking longer too. So spare us the fucking moral posturing, hypocritical bullshit.

Iraq is - and has always been - about securing petroleum and geo-strategic positioning. You think Bushco didn't know that terrorism would increase by invading? They were fucking counting on it. There's no need to loot the treasury for bullshit wars if you don't have an enemy, do you? And so far you've been reemed up the ass to the tune of over a trillion bucks by your beloved Bushco. There is no such thing as "victory" in Iraq. There is no such thing as "total victory" in a 'War on Terror'. You can't defeat an ideal militarily. It's Oceania all over, the intractable enemy. Bushco is fomenting terrorism intentionally.

If you still don't get it after all that, god help America.

P.S. Oh yeah, in case you hadn't heard, yesterday Bushco stated they'll be hitting the U.S. taxpayer up for another 100 billion for Iraq (i.e. when they say Iraq they really mean Bush and pals).

Enahs, there's no comparison here between overall education between the nations. Canada hands down leaves the U.S. in the dust as do about 27 other nations.

America is the best place to be on the planet if you're rich, andything else and it's the worst - as industrialized nations go.
