    Gaming Tetris

    [b][color=darkgreen]The only negative things I can say about Tetris is that it diverted me from precious study hours with it's simplicity and addictiveness and that once I would finally stop playing, I would try to fit ordinary objects together in my mind as I stumbled off to bed, class, etc... delusional Tetris Syndrome, I guess you'd say (though Homer Simpson did quite well packing his car with Tetris Syndrome).[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Hmmm..guess I'm not much of a help...[/color][/b]
  2. [b][color=darkgreen]I skipped so much in high school that it got to the point where they were threatening to press truancy charges (which means automatic juvenile detention). But they never actually did... instead, they made a deal with me that I would check in at the office for 20 minutes or so when I felt like leaving--but I could leave after the 20 minutes were up...:rolleyes: [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Once I entered the University, however, I had no desire to skip class and I love to learn, so I doubt I'll ever skip class again, outside of emergency situations...but I don't think that really counts as "skipping", does it?[/color][/b]
  3. [b][color=darkgreen]Watterson is a comedic genius. I have been a huge fan for as long as I can remember...but didn't really comprehend the magnitude of hilarity until I grew up a bit.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]For instance, as a tiny tyke, I would have been lost as to the full effect of the strip in which Calvin yells out , as they are dragging him to the principal's office: [/color][/b][b][color=#006400]"Help! It's the thought police!"[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]But as I grew older and my knowledge grew, so did my adoration of Calvin and Hobbes.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]And yes, I admit, I purchase bootleg Calvin & Hobbes' items... I can't resist.:animeshy: [/color][/b]
  4. [b][size=2][color=darkgreen]Well, I don't think you'll find that the OB is lacking in insomniacs--just lacking in insomniacs that spend the wee hours o' morn on OB. [/color][/size][/b][b][size=2][color=#006400]It's past 01:00 right now, and I think there's only like 5 other members on here right now.[/color][/size][/b] [size=2][b][color=#006400][i]Someone[/i] we know [i]used [/i]to spend more time on OB late at night (and in general) [/color][/b][b][color=#006400]...but is now [color=darkgreen]m[color=black]E[/color]...[color=darkred]dI[/color]...[color=#000000]cA[/color]...[color=purple]tED[/color]..[/color].and can barely manage the uncrossing of the eyes... :tasty: --ha ha... [/color][/b][/size] [b][size=2][color=#006400]*Hugs [spoiler]elfpirate[/spoiler] despite the Thorazine shuffle*[/color][/size][/b] [b][size=2][color=#006400]Seriously, though, there are quite a few members who are up at these hours, but I think that the majority of OB members are school-aged teens that have to go to bed fairly early in order to function in school.[/color][/size][/b] [b][size=2][color=#006400]And the rest of us only [i]occasionally[/i] come to OB at this hour because, well, it's almost always dead here after midnight...like it is right now... so we get bored of seeing no new posts and we don't visit at this hour again for a while. *shrugs*[/color][/size][/b] [size=1][color=#006400][b]*pssst! [color=black]my[/color] [color=black]disclaimer[/color]: [spoiler]elfpirate[/spoiler] isn't truly on Thorazine *smiles and waves innocently to [spoiler]elfpirate[/spoiler]* [/b][/color][/size]
  5. [quote name='Baron Samedi][size=1']Under the circumstances, I firmly believe that Oscar should be forced to move out of his trashbin and into a proper home, so that children are not influenced to become homeless people. And Bert and Ernie should get their own apartments, because we don't want to encourage any possibility of homosexuality. :rolleyes: [/size][/quote] [b][color=darkgreen] I'm currently seeking legal compensation from Jim Henson Productions for my bisexuality and my squatter habits... not to mention for my OCD-- try holding a job as a dishwasher when you can't help but count the silverware and toss it over your shoulder a la "The Count"...[/color][/b] [b][color=darkgreen]Sesame Street has damaged us all irrepairably.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Oh, and DW-- I believe they're changing "Super Grover" to "Super-Mundane Grover"... he just sits on a bench and reties his shoes or something...[/color][/b][b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b]
  6. [b][color=darkgreen]I agree with Azure on this one. It's not that you're advice would be [i]bad[/i] advice, but that you aren't speaking from experience in romantic relationships.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]It's difficult for someone who has never been in a romantic relationship to understand the dynamics of one-- that reciprocation between two individuals that are -- attached. [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]But that's not to say that you don't understand the general positive and negative components of a relationship... like--what's a sweet thing to do for your significant other and what's abusive...those things can be learned from your general relationships/friendships with other people (outside of a romantic relationship).[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b]
  7. [quote name='elfpirate] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=3][b]lmao... Y[/b][/size][size=2][b]es, dirt, you are a d**k--but not just because of your lack of guilt--ha ha ha.[/b'][font=Tahoma][/quote][/font][/size][/font][b][size=2][color=darkgreen]Hey, thanx, elfpirate, ya big jerk! :p lol[/color][/size][/b] [font=Comic Sans MS][size=2][font=Tahoma][QUOTE=elfpirate][/font][b]"Rob? We never "rob"! We just sort of...borrow a bit from those who can afford it..."[/b][/size][/font] [b][font=Comic Sans MS][size=2]-Robin Hood[/size][/font][/b][/QUOTE][b][size=2][color=darkgreen]You just can't argue with the little fox...[/color][/size][/b] [quote name='Bloodseeker'] Justified? To an extent. Some media is just too hard to get your hands on, and some media is overpriced. When you overprice stuff like that, you're just begging for people to take the alternate route by downloading it.[/quote][b][size=2][color=darkgreen]I agree with you 100% on that... not all of us have the luxery of being able to afford the things we want/need in life... so we're definitely going to find an alternative route to obtaining it... whether it's downloading something or swiping a roll of toilet paper from the gas station bathroom or whatever...:animeswea [/color][/size][/b]
  8. [b][color=darkgreen]I'm sorry to hear that, I truly am. I've received several of those types of calls.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Sudden loss is definitely more difficult to deal with than the known-to-be-coming losses, because you're unprepared psychologically and emotionally to have someone suddenly missing from your life.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]I've lost my fair share of friends and family without warning, and it's true that regret consumes you for a time. I think that is especially the case with the sudden loss of someone who is extremely close, such as a lover or family (if you come from a good family, at any rate) but it's not too much lesser when it's a close mate, either.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]I hope that you and your brother can offer one another some support through this--it can be invaluable just to have someone there who's willing to listen--even if no one feels like talking--it feels good to know that you could if you wanted to.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Take care.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]-dirt[/color][/b]
  9. [quote name='Dragonboym2][color=blue']I used to have Carniaphobia. Fear of sharks. [/color][/quote] [b][color=darkgreen]I know quite a few people with that particular phobia. Even the word "shark" makes them begin to panic...and if you were to show them a picture of a shark, they're liable to hit you for doing so.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]You say "used to"-- so how did you get over it? By watching Jaws? Beause that would make my mates die of cardiac arrest... they wouldn't even be able to look at the video box...:animesigh [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]For me, I don't think I have any true phobias...there are a few things that I fear, but not to the point that I'd consider it a phobia.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b]
  10. [b][color=darkgreen]Well, to put an end to the "Is suicide illegal?" question, it depends on where you are. It's illegal in my state.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]And Siren has also said much of what I had to say...[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Why would it be true that it would be suicide? Because you made an informed decision when you were still capable of thought to not have your corpse kept warm after your consciousness has left it's mechanism for physical movement? lol[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]There was nothing left of Terri in that body. It was empty cells and tissue.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Her soul was gone long before the whole debate came about.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400](On a side note--did anyone see the South Park episode that corresponds to this case? It was absoutely brilliant.:animesmil )[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]At any rate, it seems that the people who end up fighting to keep someone's corpse warm in cases such as these, are typically the people who weren't there for the person when they [i]could[/i] respond and interact and live. [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]It's like they want to keep them alive for their own selfish needs... to try to make amends or something. The people who were around the person and that loved the person seem to know that it's time to let go and have it be finished.[/color][/b]
  11. [QUOTE=duo337]I have no idea how straight I am. I never had a date before in my life much less any girls (or guys for that matter) who would be even has shown the slightest bit of interest in me sexually. I suppose I am not homosexual or even bi. I perfer to be around women. Though as it stands, last time I checked, most people trying to be preists are not allowed to marry. To be honest, it kinda makes me wonder how someone is gay. I mean, people say they experament and toy with the idea. Everyone from anime writers to the pope (god rest his soul) has touched on homosexuality. It has been around since roman times and probably before that. But it honestly bothers me how someone is homosexual or bi. I mean, I could not walk up to my best friend and kiss him. I would probably shoot myself (meaning too this time -_-). I suppose for that reason I could never be gay, much less understand others happyness though it. But whatever makes you happy, I suppose that is fine with me lol.[/QUOTE] [b][color=darkgreen]I'm a little unclear on what you've said here-- did you just make a reference to shooting your best friend and then yourself for a theoretical kiss?:rolleyes: [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Plus, you say it "honestly bothers you" that someone can be gay or bi, but then you finish with "whatever makes you happy, I suppose that's fine with me"? (and yet another: :rolleyes: )[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Couldn't you have just answered with something like: I'm very straight and I prefer the company of women-- or something along those lines instead of trying to prove your disgust with gays and bis and simultaneously seem like you were open-minded and accepting?:animesigh [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]lol-- Get off the fence on the issue, k? And this isn't really a "Do you accept the sexuality of others?" thread, either, is it? [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b]
  12. [quote name='ThatOneOddDude']I wouldn'y conside Tensei a "cartoony" RPG. Anywaym I used to have a PS2 (and I have Dark Cloud) but it recently broke and I got rid of it.[/quote] [b][color=darkgreen]I can sympathize--mine just broke last week. :animesigh [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]I am almost exclusively an RPG fan, and I love the PS2, but I might just hold off on getting mine fixed or replaced, because the PS3 isn't too far off, and I've got other systems to keep me occupied for a while.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]But I agree that a few games doesn't justify the purchase of a whole new system. (Although, I'm sure that Playstation has put out enough games that you would enjoy enough to make it worth your buck.)[/color][/b]
  13. [b][color=darkgreen]Although I hated the Ecco games, I am rather thrilled at the prospect of being able to be a shark and devour people--that just sounds way too fun:animesmil .[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]As far as the others go, I think I'm with James on this one--it's hard to find decent movie-based games-- except that I do love the LOTR games, as well as 007 .[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b]
  14. [quote name='ForgottenRaider']No further arguement.[/quote] [b][color=darkgreen]I wasn't trying to shut down discussion, FR-- it just struck me as unbelieveable that anyone would defend sexism as being something "good" for the people who have been discriminated against.:animeswea [/color][/b]
  15. [b][color=darkgreen]I'm with SunfallE and elfpirate on this one.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Prison is [i]meant[/i] to be an extreme rehabilitation... and it's one that we've employed since ancient times--and it has never worked.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]I mean, unless you have an idea on how to change the way people think and feel, which, so far, no one does, we're stuck with prisons, max security psychiatric lockup, and the death penalty as our only options.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]I suppose we haven't tried some Clockwork Orange kind of crap, but... in all reality, the so-called rehab programs do their best and fail 99% of the time. [/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]You can't monitor the way that people think-- because people lie. Not all criminals are stupid--they know what the therapists want to hear.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]Besides, say they find a way to rehabilitate a person who is guilty of raping and murdering children... how fair would it be that they could then be free and and simply shrug off what they have done, saying "Well, that was the old me-- I'm different now".[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]That person is entitled to live as afree person because now they've been readjusted somehow? Bah! Screw that.[/color][/b] [b][color=#006400][/color][/b] [b][color=#006400]If they could make someone like that "normal", I say that they go ahead and do that-- and then let the victim's family after them, because the victims were "normal" when they were murdered, too.[/color][/b]
