Keeping trying. I still haven't played an online FPS as fun as QuakeWorld.

When I was a child I suddenly realized the absurdity of existence. After that, life became a bit of entertainment and mostly annoyance. Whenever I close my eyes or attempt to clear my mind, the cloud of absurdity suffocates me. The best I can do is focus on distractions -- life, love, family, work, and all other the superfluous human activities.

For some reason this discussion of the potential future makes me come back to the absurdity of it all. Does it really matter? If you want a guaranteed look at your future, have a lovely picnic at the local cemetery. Perhaps that will help you realize what's really worth worrying about. Hint: Not much.

There are two distinct, conscious and continuous, approaches to this realization (of absurdity): be immobilized about your ultimate fate until you die, or explore the freedom of life until you die. The process is what you have control over; the end is always the same.

The only MMO I've played for any extended period was City of Heroes. Just something about it was fun. Though it did get to be a grind and boring in a week or two.

If you're ever in Southern California, be sure to go to the The Getty. It's a beautiful and intellectually stimulating experience.

It's good money around here. I see a lot of ladies walking multiple dogs along the beach. The rich pay a premium.

The Half Elf and mag. Be sure to check out Zola Pub and Grill (on a Wednesday / BurgerMania special) for the best burgers I've ever had at a restaurant. I've traveled a lot.

It's not good to support Nazis. Bad stuff. I seriously doubt he's an apologist. The way I read it is he meant he wanted to play both sides like the Rebellion or Empire in Star Wars games or the Soviets in C&C. People misunderstood, attacked him for it, so he gave an extreme response back.

Seems when the entire game is won by a single score at the very end, it does seem more luck than skill. Most team games are based on a lot of luck and random team efforts or circumstances. Which is why I prefer death-match (free for all) in video games. I am 100% responsible for my success or failure.

How do you figure, sportsfan? Just because we were hunter-gatherers doesn't mean we enjoyed it. It's why we took to agrarian societies like a duck to water. Tool use, metallurgy, et al. all to limit our exposure to the wild and make life easier. We don't like being caged either, but that's a very different thing from being domestic. We can still walk out our front doors anytime.


Cutter,

If I get banned for arguing and defending myself here. I want to tell you I consider you a virtual friend. Take care.

His posts are about how his thoughts and ideas are superior to everyone elses. Because if you're not doing things his way, you're clearly not doing things right. And that's condescending.



More trolling personal attacks. If you look in my history, you'll see that someone argued for collecting video games. I understood his argument and showed respect.

You're just posting generic links to wikipedia and make no effort to respond in any meaningful way to any criticism of your ridiculously one sided tripe. To be blunt you don't deserve any special consideration or treatment.

- DADES - This is a signature of my name, enjoy!

Above the link was the quote. It pointed out why the counter argument that "because humans are animals, they should live in the wild too" is fallacious.

Hey, look! Another condescending post from bobbob.


The above is an example of trolling and flaming. Merely attacking the poster instead of the subject.

Unfair to call me out as trolling. I believe non human animals should be in the wild. A troll wouldn't actually believe such a thing, merely posting to be controversial. Calling me a troll is downgrading my position as flammatory and irrelevant. Actually, calling me a troll, as I attempt to support my position intellectually, reveals the opposite for yourself, which I doubt is true.

Humans are animals too, and aren't "meant" to live in domesticity either. So I guess you'll be living your creed by giving up your cushy San Diego pad and all of its accoutrements to return to living off the land like our ancestors. Anything less would be rank hypocrisy on your part.

Modo hoc fallacy

The modo hoc (or "just this") fallacy is the informal error of assessing meaning to an existent based on the constituent properties of its material makeup while omitting the matter's arrangement. For instance, metaphysical naturalism states that while matter and motion are all that comprise man, it cannot be assumed that the characteristics inherent in the elements and physical reactions that make up man ultimately and solely define man's meaning; for, a cow which is alive and well and a cow which has been chopped up into meat are the same matter but it is obvious that the arrangement of that matter clarifies those different situational meanings.

What utter nonsense. Have you actually spent any significant amount of time out in the wild? My wife has been doing falconry and wildlife rehabilitation work for over a decade. We see animals come in that are diseased, sick, starving, malnourished, full of parasites, injured, missing toes and limbs, frozen, dehydrated, and worse. Life in wild nature for animals is harsh, brutal, and full of constant fear. The vast majority of wildlife will die in their first year, it's not all rainbows and teddy bears out there.

You are applying standards and expectations upon what is normally (though artificially) created by humans.

Animals should be in the wild nature. I imagine if we asked a pet what it would prefer, it would want its freedom; if it had the chance to experience both captivity and the wild. Unfortunately, an animal is incapable of communicating that fact. I have had pets in the past and loved them. But in retrospect, they should have been running in the wild. If you find my opinion offensive, put the situation in reverse: Can you honestly say you would prefer to be a pet?
