lol...50 gallons. THAT's what you're going to nitpick me on?

weak.

but fine, i'll come down to your level. Cuz yeah..donating blood at 70 actually would be impressive feat, knowing that something you did directly impacted the lives of many people. unlike the cold exchange of money where the question of motive will always be there...is it a tax break...is it just to improve public image (which obviously you're buying into) is he getting some unspecified perk in exchange. don't really have that ambiguity with giving blood or donating time

So, you've decided that your opinion of the bloke will remain unchanged regardless of any positive actions he may perform?

what is this? remedial reading comprehension class? I never said that..again quit trying to put words in my mouth.

hey..if money is what sways your opinion of people. hey, to each their own..but thats only a step or two up from being a whore. just thought you should know. sucks to be you though..you're sucking his cock, but you didn't get any of that money.

where does it say that I think less of Gates for donating to charity. His stock neither went up or down in my eyes.

is that so hard to understand? just cuz I'm not "yea", doesn't automatically mean I'm "nay"

Basically you're saying giving money to charities isn't worthy of being considered a good thing because charities piss away their money

again, instead of attempting to put words in my mouth and dealing with I "basically" said, quit being an ass and deal with what I "did" say.

I never said charities aren't worthy of being considered a good thing..again, you're putting some gross lies into my mouth.

you again abuse the hyperbole by implying that I think all charities piss away money..(your words..not mine) I never said all do...but it is the pinnacle of niavete to think it never happens.

you can't comprehend...your problem. for the third time, I will repeat what I said. Just because you're rich and can afford to throw money at a charity does not command *my* respect. *my* respect is earned by doing things that go beyond money. I don't give a flying fuck if my idea of what respect is doesn't mesh with Gate's pocketbook..I wasn't asking your approval...and I don't think Gates cares one way or the other either. just don't appreciate people putting words in my mouth

uhm...no?

when the fuck did I say there shouldn't be charities? I just said that giving money to them doesn't equate to my respect for them

overreact much?

just cuz you can throw a lot of money at some charity doesn't equate to respect in my book.

money gets misappropriated, wasted, etc and ultimately rarely solves the problem.

call me when gates donates a total of 50 gallons of blood or tallys up a 1000 total hours working for habitat for humanity or something like that.

The only thing I ask is this....make the starships COLLIDE-ABLE!!!

When I yell 'Today IS a good day to die!! Prepare for ramming speed!!', I want to mean it.

To me that was one of the things that I disliked about the other Trek ship games, the ability to ram. I know this isn't a tactic that should be used often if at all, but its nice to know if things go bad for my team that I have one uber weapon left to throw at the baddies. Mainly, my ship

back in my nerdier days, I had the ds9 tech manual, and I remember reading that the nose of the defiant is where they stored the torpedoes and that it was detachable, so that it could be used as a last ditch "mega-torpedo" it would be kinda neat to see that implemented.

That could work, though they would need to change the names, or else everyone would associate the show with the Campy one.

cuz yeah, if you're going to make a gritty series about a cyborg that's moody cuz he doesn't feel human anymore. you don't want it associated with cheesy 60's camp in *any* way.



though on the other hand, Jake 2.0 didn't work out too well, but granted, that show was heavily mired in cheese

While in principle, I disagree, Farscape was one of the more original shows out there. I can't disagree with some of the points you bring up. Cuz yeah, you're right, the whole 'honor-obsessed' alien race thing has been done to death. Ben Browder was simply great though cuz your traditional SF hero is usually some stuck up career military guy. I mean c'mon, Kirk may have been a loose cannon, but even he was still career military to the core. Crichton was military yeah, but he was a scientist. and I frickin loved any episode where he totally flipped out. The episode where he pretends to be stoner surfer guy to make the bad guys think they had succeeded in brainwashing him (cuz they had no idea how a brainwashed human would act) was just pure gold.

my only problem with Farscape that there were so many episodes that I admittedly just didn't "get it" the first viewing...I seriously had to watch some episodes more than once just to understand WTF was going on. Not really a bad thing in my eyes, but it sure did suck up the time.

If any man is still pissed that Starbuck is a woman, you're gay, end of story. just accept it. Come out of the closet or I'll have R. Kelly come sing to you.

Katee Sackhoff is doing an amazing job

the publisher cut them off for quality issues

What bizzaro world do you come from? Publishers caring about the quality of the product? weird.

You're an absolute moron to want crappy SG1 vs no SG1, better that SG1 be remembered for the good series that it WAS, not for the crapfest that its rapidly heading towards. The fact that you're apparently worried more about having *something* to watch over something *good* to watch is just sad really. you want crappy television? watch your average non-cable network show. That should more than satisfy you.

let SG1 die with dignity, if it has any left.

Hate to say it, but SG1 does need to get cancelled. It was a great show, but its run its course and needs to die. Its getting more and more ridiculous how much technology earth gets. In nine years they go to ignorant of the stargate and the galaxy, to major galactic power, shittons of Ancient tech, a small fleet of man-made intergalactic ships, and yet the its still magically a secret still....bullshit.

The Orii are a lame foe, we've already done the "bad guys pretending to be gods" bit enough already, try to play a new tune.

You want to impress me? make season ten about how the Stargate finally goes public and the chaos that erupts.

And sorry, I wouldn't kick Amanda Tapping out of bed, but still, she ain't that hot anymore.

Time to move on.

And though I am extremely skeptical as to the quality of the game, I still probably would have purchased it.

bingo.

its referring to satisfying instant gratification. having DVD players in cars and calling them 'essential' shit like that.

comparing cars to mp3 players is a bit of a stretch though. transportation technology will always be essential as we progress. mp3 players, xboxes and all of our entertainment technology is just that...entertainment...not essential. a few years ago, I would have agreed that cell phones are just a luxury...not so much now that I've had one for a while...they are bonafide essential tools in emergencies.

I think the psych was mainly referring to some people use these things as a substitute for human contact. hopefully we know the answer to these questions but:

why go to a party when you have a chat site?
why go outside when you have a console game to play?
why read a book when you can watch a DVD of the book...etc etc?

some people just don't understand stuff like that. Its like the preacher dude in the movie Contact said...we buy all this junk we think will fill this void in our lives and it ends up making that void bigger, so we try and buy more shit..etc etc.

yeah, Asia is full of way more techno-whores than Amercia.

I do wish people would stop confusing want with need. Short of a promise to a dying child, I cannot think of a "need" here.

I agree that I want Nintendo in the game in order to provide competition to MS and Sony.

just can't help thinking the controller will flop though. I just don't see motion sensors being effective....I know, I haven't played it...but its just a gut feeling.

even though I think the controller will flop, its not a huge insurmountable deal....enough people hated the duke....the duke didn't kill the Xbox though.

who the fuck writes these antipiracy programs: former pirates.

antipiracy is such a big industry now, do you honestly believe its in their best financial interests to truly, effectively stop it?

bull, its now a part of the circle of capitalism. the more people pirate, the more the companies will complain they're losing profit and thus justify the latest, most expensive, most elaborate anti-piracy scheme which also justifies a higher price, which in turn, forces more people to pirate...lather rinse repeat.

pirates love the challenge of cracking the newest stuff, and companies, in truth, profit from piracy. its win win for both sides...who gets screwed? the legit customer. hate to sound like a conspiracy nut but the 'threat' of piracy is such a hoax.

I can understand its roots in real table top games, but now your on a multiprocessing fast gaming machine..turn based games are redundant now.

you obviously dont understand - tabletop wargames will NEVER EVER GO AWAY

but they will migrate onto computers and beyond

so when are they going to finally make a faithful rendition of the Battletech table top game. I want an updated graphical MMO version of all those old MU* games I used to play. Real time, but still faithful to the tabletop game.

I agree with Tumbler, I think they're blowing smoke up our asses with this weekly refresh BS.

Has anyone seen ANY store get weekly shipments of the 360? of course there is high demand with supply is pathetic.

if every store were getting weekly shipments..I doubt this shortage would be as bad as it is

Called up my brother in law (Best Buy Store Manager) to ask him when they are going to get the first shipment scince the launch. He tells me he already has them but Best Buy is holding them back due to some sort of advertising scheme they got going and he wouldn't tell me date, but just said to keep my eyes open.

Its shit like this that should remind everyone that it really is consumers vs companies. nothing against your brother or anything, cuz I'm sure he's just doing his job. it just pisses me off to no end the schemes these assholes come up with. I mean c'mon, someone high up came up with that 700 dollar bundling idea..I know they're trying to say it was just a case of some rogue managers being naughty..but c'mon, that's bullshit.

someday enough people are going to say, "fuck this...its just a toy" and stop being slaves to "me too"-ism sadly, I doubt it will be in our lifetimes.
