    Nice and toasty..

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]You could try putting in a squeeze of lemon. It's always pretty tasty.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]It's really everybody's issue. People, by nature, tend to gather with people that are like themselves -- whether it be in interests (music, art, etc), lifestyle (goth, etc), or even color/religion. People simply feel more at-home with people who are similar to them. We'll never fully remove the problems of segregation -- the only way we could is if everybody was exactly alike. In the long run, though, the benefits of diversity outweigh the occasional problems.[/FONT]

    Sooooooooo... How smart are ya?

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]A bunch of years ago, I took one of those official IQ tests given by a psychologist. I got a 144. But keep in mind that an IQ is a very imperfect way of measuring intelligence -- it only measures a certain few aspects, and has no real bearing on everyday life. Your ability to piece together red blocks is not going to define anything about you.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]We've had a little bit of snow... I think maybe two signifigant snowfalls this season. I really hope they pick up -- both in frequency, and in volume.[/FONT]

    Road Rage

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]In my state's Driver's Education manual, it gives a couple examples of road rage. The first two are standard drivers yelling at each other, but the third is the story of how a driver pulled over... and shot the other guy with a [B]crossbow.[/B] Yes, a crossbow. It also gives the helpful advice: "When signaling to other drivers, use more than one finger."[/FONT]

    Anime Inu Yasha

    No, not quite. You're wrong on the last bit. She doesn't "get" him. The ending was very neutral.

    Anime Inu Yasha

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]InuYasha can't be with Kikyo. Keep in mind that Kikyo is a clay statue, with only a little fragment of a soul. I think she has just enough to keep her mobile, and needs to suck the souls out of others. The thing is, Kagome has Kikyo's soul. And I think the whole theme of InuYasha is this issue. The moral of the show is that while Kikyo is dead, her soul came back in Kagome -- and that InuYasha will need to go with her, because what's important is the soul and not the body. After all, it's a "love that transcends time".[/FONT]

    Gaming Most Hated Video Game Cliche

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]There's one cliche that I hate... Doom 3 does it [I]all the time[/I]. It's basically, "Walk into a room, see a [B]huge[/B] gun. You go to pick it up... and then the doors shut, and three demons teleport in."[/FONT]

    Three Favorite Movies

    [FONT=Palatino Linotype]Hmm. Here are my favorite three movies. 1) [B]Moulin Rouge[/B] - Simply fantastic. The music was great, and the entire movie was perfect. The end was inspired. 2)[B] Pulp Fiction [/B]- I like the way this movie dealt with fate. The script was also very well written. For example, the portion of the film that had Jules and Vince talking as friends, and then the next second, they're stone-cold gangbangers. 3) [B]Fight Club[/B] - Really great movie. As with Moulin Rouge, great ending.[/FONT]

    3 Songs That Illustrate You

    [COLOR=DimGray][FONT=Palatino Linotype]Here are my three. [B][URL=http://www.wolfsheim.de/text_blind.htm]Wolfsheim - Blind[/URL][/B]: This sort of describes my attitude. Not perfectly, but almost. It's a very good song all-around, and quite accurate. [COLOR=SlateGray] [CENTER]"You can feel what no one feels... And your darkness speaks, and has eyes to see... I know that you can win this lifelong game we're in "Hey! Darkness is a state of mind! I can go where you would stumble!" ...was what you said to me, And I knew you were right."[/CENTER] [/COLOR] [B][URL=http://www.musicsonglyrics.com/K/kidneythieveslyrics/kidneythievesblackbulletlyrics.htm]Kidney Thieves - Black Bullet[/URL] [/B]: I think this describes me pretty well, in a way. [COLOR=SlateGray][CENTER] "When I'm drowning in the sea, I am When you're looking down at me, I am When I'm walking in the streets, I am a bullet When I'm looking and I find, I am When I'm purer than the sky, I am When I'm f--king with your mind, I am a bullet In the eye, in the mirror, I am a black bullet." [/CENTER] [/COLOR] [b][URL=http://www.azlyrics.com/lyrics/kmfdm/straybullet.html]KMFDM - Stray Bullet[/URL][/b]: Once again, a song that pretty adequately describes an aspect of myself. [COLOR=SlateGray] [CENTER]"I am your holy totem I am your sick taboo Radical and radiant I'm your nightmare coming true I am your worst enemy I am your dearest friend Malignantly Malevolent I am of divine descent I have come to rock your world I have come to shake your faith Anathematic Anarchist I have come to take my place."[/CENTER][/COLOR] [/FONT][/COLOR]

    Where do you live?

    [COLOR=DimGray][FONT=Palatino Linotype]I live in the United States (Connecticut).[/FONT][/COLOR]
  12. [COLOR=DimGray][FONT=Palatino Linotype]I'm excited to see how they handle single-sabers. In KOTOR I, single-sabers were entirely useless. They claim to have improved them enough to be usable. Hopefully.[/FONT][/COLOR]

    I hate them, do you?

    [COLOR=DimGray][FONT=Palatino Linotype]You essentially have two options. You can rend their flesh, but you'll depreciate your integrity for it. Or, you can avoid them and do nothing, but preserve your purity. If you're looking to be as good a person as you can be, you can't compromise. Violence is violence, and that's not your domain. A breach now, and it could lead to further breaches in the future -- and ultimately, you sink to becoming exactly like they are. Purity demands completeness. Or, if that's not your game, you can simply destroy them by whatever means you deem fit. You do, after all, have the will to power -- all of us do. You have a drive in you to fulfill it, and it's your option to pursue that. If you do, you have an advantage -- keep in mind what Sun Tzu said: "Simulated disorder postulates perfect discipline, simulated fear postulates courage; simulated weakness postulates strength." Keep in mind, though, the warning above. Ultimately, it is your path to take. I give no advice on to which option is preferable, but one is inevitable.[/FONT][/COLOR]
