Cat vs. Dog Showdown.

MAN! That's a shit talkin cat! Even as the resident crazy cat guy, I felt a little sorry for the puppy. "MAMA! MAAAMA!! MMMMMAAAAAAMMMMAAAA!!!!!"

I would have felt worse for the dog if he didn't draw first. That clip was in desperate need of a Ennio Morricone soundtrack.

I just hope this doesn't embolden that cat to go after the wrong dog. In my experience the cat always wins the battle... as long as the dog doesn't decide it's to the death. A Weimaraner went after my Siamese cat (the original "not to be messed with" breed) when I was a kid, and came away howling with a face-full of claw marks, because the dog thought they were just playing and the cat didn't. But if a cat tried to attack Hudson the wonder dog, there would not even be a fight, just a dead cat, as she does not play around when it comes to other animals.

Maybe they didn't feel the quake downstair since it is more noticeable upstair. I guess you can't trust your dogs to predict quakes. Haha!

Oh no, they felt it, believe me. The whole house shook for probably 10 seconds. And this place is built like a brick shithouse. Actually, it is just that, since it's made of brick, and filled with my shit.

Holy moly... earthquake! Was just a rumble here, but wow. Hope everyone in the VA area is safe.

Edit: nin-jaed.
Did your dogs freak out from that quake?

It was actually not so bad. After it hit I went downstairs to make sure the were okay by cheerfully asking them things like "wasn't that great?" and "let's do that again!" but they were fine with it without me.

Actually Gunnar-man is fine with anything, it's Hudson the wonder dog who gets freaked by odd things, and it's hard to predict what they will be. The quake didn't phase her, but she hates the beeping the smoke alarm makes when its battery is low so much, that when a smoke alarm did that on TV as part of a show we were watching the other night (maybe it was Weeds?) she ended up trembling uncontrollably for more than half-an-hour.

But the monotonous final Citadel levels in HL2 were brutal.

I loved those! With the powered up gravity gun, I never got bored of disintegrating people with the little floating spheres...

Same here... that was completely awesome.

Yup, January 2010. So in four months or so it will be two years. I stand by my sarcastic, useless comment! Also, that game sucked.

Okay, but just so you can stand corrected, the line in the subject is from Old School, not Tommy Boy.

Stephen, I've known you a long time and I respect you. And it's your house, your rules, I respect that too. I have zero problem with it. However, there is such a thing as being too sensitive and taking things out of context. Anyway, I'm not going to censor myself for those things which I think are acceptable. If you disagree and do, that's your decision. I may not agree with it, but I'll respect it.

To be clear, I understand that you did not mean what you said as a slur, but intent is not really a factor in trying to keep the discourse civil here. I can't delete one post for saying the things you did and not delete yours because of "context." I was not angry at what you did, I merely deleted your post. I was, however, surprised at the comment about me "missing" the context, which you repeat above. Keeping language like that out of these forums is not an issue of context, and it sounds like you may still be "missing" that point.

To prove a point you litter your explanation with more slurs?

And "some of my best friends are {fill in the blank}" is such a cliche of bigotry it's not even worth addressing.

Call your friends what you want, but please don't use that language here...

not a fan of eddie murphy, blue? or SNL? or are you just hypersensitive because of white guilt? some sort of combo? or did you just want to be a stuck-up prick for the hell of it?

History has demonstrated that not nipping racially inflammatory commentary in the bud just leads to things going downhill quite rapidly.

try growing a sense of humor at some point, it lowers stress

I like to think I actually have a pretty well-developed sense of humor. I guess I'm wrong, as I didn't see how that brief out of context clip that tried to make this a joke about Kanye's race was so funny and not at all racist.

Warmest regards,
The stuck-up prick.

Sigh, Blue. It's all about context man. And sometimes you just miss it.

Using a homophobic slur as a pejorative is a matter of context, huh? Yeah, I guess I missed that...

I think Valve fixed it for HL, but it had a different movement related oddity: Hugging the walls by running forwards and towards the wall gave you extra speed.
That his was also present in Doom. With wallrunning, which, IIRC only worked on north- and eastbound walls, you could actually reach speeds high enough to outrun your own rockets.

http://www.bluesnews.com/doomtips/#THE%20WALL%20RUN

THE WALL RUN
One of the buggiest of the Doom bugs. By strafe running along a wall from South to North (North is up on the map), you can achieve a speed best described as ridiculous. Wall running is allegedly 300% faster than strafe-running, which is 44% faster than running, which would be, um,...well, you get the idea. It's fast.

Odd, I downloaded the demo last week on PSN. Still haven't tried it, but the demo is already out.

Not to mention, I could have sworn I saw Bet playing this demo on Steam a couple days ago too.

There were ways to get early access:

For those that missed the trailer you can find it here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dj4WiMV5ijQ

My thoughts? Grey, it's the new brown!

That trailer is still just as no longer available as it was when I mentioned it in the story.

Actually, I manage my GERD the same way: I don't eat after 2 or 3, and I don't drink soda anymore (although beer is no problem for some reason).

Glad to hear that it's not a problem anymore! When it hits me it's extremely painful.

It rarely caused me serious pain, maybe because I'm kind of stupidly stoical, but it was causing me to lose my voice (I actually had LPRD).

I was extremely happy to find this way to work around it, because I hated the idea of having to take Protonix for the rest of my life.

Onlive? Oooo, I'm going to play that when I get home! NO! Wait, I can play it right here at work!!! MUAHAHAHAHAH.
$50 for a game that requires the internet and you will never physically own. Net alone zero config options graphically.

Maybe if it was $25. But no way in hell for the same price as a boxed version.

Did you read the story? The retail version includes OnLive access.

Yea I am able to get to Blues again! Kate at Quadranet is da bomb! She got this fixed in no time. Blue ignore the email I sent to you earlier this evening.

Since Friday I have not been able to get to the site without using a proxy. Charter said they could not fix the problem so I sent a message to Quadranet and they fixed it in a matter of minutes.

Ah, that's good to hear. I forwarded your mail to Frans to ask if this was a problem for Quadranet's attention, but obviously it was.

Sorry about the problems. Welcome back.

Did you get a chance to try a Sweetwater in Atlanta?

No. I would have rather tried that, in spite of the whole 420 beer thing seeming like a childish gimmick.

There was just a very strong desire to see my reaction to the "Death" wings. I explained that if these were sold off the menu to the general public without giving you a free t-shirt or something similar for finishing them, it was extremely unlikely they'd be too hot for my tastes, but I guess they thought I was delusional.

On the other hand, I had never thought of adding cracked pepper to the wing sauce the way they did, which was a neat touch, and definitely something I will add to my recipe. They also had draught coke with real sugar, so both of those elements made it worthwhile.
