  1. Thank you! I'm certainly not looking forward to the new madness that is PRTs after such a long lazy period. Congrats on making it out alive! How long were you in for? And what would you say was your favorite port while out and about?
  2. Sixteen years later this is where I am in life. I hope everyone's been safe and well.
  3. It's been around sixteen years or so since I joined. So much has changed - both here and in my life. I enlisted in the military, went around the world, lost friends and family, forged new bonds, and I never would have imagined how much I've seen and learned these long years. I sincerely hope everyone has been doing well, and Desbreko, wherever you are, I hope you're having an awesome time.
  4. I'm thankful to have had such a great person participate in my old bug-loving thread from ages ago, and I hope all those whose lives you touched continue to carry your memory fondly into tomorrow. I hope you're having an awesome time wherever you find yourself these days.

  5. Oh, man. Let's see...   PS4: I'm currently pouring countless hours into Destiny and loving it. It's a beautiful game - when I'm not knee-deep in the forces of darkness doing a Strike I'm just wandering around and exploring the gorgeous environments on the moon, Venus, or Mars....or Russia.   PS3: When I'm not feeling Destiny (most likely 'cause my connection is shoddy that day) I'll be slicing faces off with my Psycho on Borderlands 2. Yeah, I was a little late to the party with this one, but I'm loving it pretty hard.   PS2: Okay, yeah, so I still have my PS2 around, a
  6. I think it's about time for me to come back out from hiding.   I've recently indulged in (anime) The Future Diary, Soul Eater, FMA Brotherhood, Kill la Kill, Gargantia on the Verdurous Planet, Speed Grapher, Durarara, and I just started Guilty Crown right before we went out to sea again. I really want to finish it.   Oh, and I rewatched Gurren Lagann and FLCL while out to sea a little while back. Always good.
  7. I actually picked this up a little while back on the PS3, and I've thoroughly enjoyed it as well - I have a 50 Paladin on Lamia that I'm currently gearing; I'm playing with a group of fellow sailors from the ship I'm on.   How far have you gotten? Also, my PSN is Deralito incase you'd like to add me. I realize I haven't been a very outspoken fellow on here throughout the years, but I've been quietly in and out around the boards. I think it's high time I started visiting more.

[SIZE="2"][FONT="Lucida Console"][COLOR="Navy"]I've not played much as of late, but I've been playing [B]Dragon Age: Origins[/B],[B] Borderlands[/B],[B] Street Fighter 4[/B], and [B]Soul Calibur 4[/B] for the PS3.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I must return to my Human Berserker/Champion on Dragon Age: Origins.[/COLOR][/FONT][/SIZE]
  9. [FONT="Lucida Console"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]Wha-? Where have I been these past couple of years? All I recall is graduating from High School, registering at the community college, getting a job at SAM'S Club, and...wait, why am I here? Oh, I remember now!

  10. [quote name='Sandy']Sex and physical contact are wonderful things, and I think they're every bit as important as the emotional side in a relationship. Without them, I don't think the relationship can go much further than a caring friendship. But that's just my opinion.[/QUOTE] [quote name='SunfallE']But yeah, in the end? Sex is important in a relationship and not just for marriage.[/quote] [quote name='indifference']Sex is just as important as the other aspects of a relationship.[/quote] [quote name='BKStyles']...if you put half as much effort into the aspects pertaining to the

  12. [FONT="Trebuchet MS"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"][SIZE="1"]Dang. I forgot if it's even possible to place an image in your post from your computer itself without resorting to thumbnail attachments. Anyhow, my pic is in the attachment, so please take a look.[/SIZE][/COLOR][/FONT]
  13. [quote name='The13thMan'][COLOR=DarkOrange][FONT=Century Gothic]I didn't realize there was any confusion that needed to be cleared up. You did say you wanted some arthropods, didn't you? I don't know a lot about bugs/insects/spiders and whatnot, so please do educate me. [/FONT][/COLOR][/QUOTE] [FONT="Lucida Console"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]This is why I created this thread in the first place; I'll be happy to clear up any confusion to the best of my abilities. I just need more people to get involved.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  14. [FONT="Lucida Console"][SIZE="1"][COLOR="RoyalBlue"]I'm back. Anyone miss me? Anyhow, on to my post: [URL="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_Weta"]Deinacrida heteracantha[/URL]: [IMG]http://www.geocities.co.jp/NatureLand-Sky/8651/photo/giant_weta.jpg[/IMG] Since we seem to be more inclined towards bigger creatures today, I give you the Giant Weta of New Zealand. This particular species is native to New Zealand's Little Barrier Island, and it is amongst the largest giant weta species in the world; in fact, it's arguably the heaviest insect in the world.

  16. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=RoyalBlue]On the subject of Chu Jellies, I know people have come across the rare, yellow chu jelly that restores all hearts and boosts attack power for a limited time. I have come across only one, and it was on [spoiler]the bridge directly over Lake Hylia[/spoiler]. My question is this: might anyone know where to find some more? Added to this, to those who have acquired the [spoiler]magic armor, what are your thoughts on it? Could it have been better? Is it fine as it is?[/spoiler] Even beyond this, did anyone else think that this is an overly easy Z
  17. [quote name='Phaedrus']I work to improve the effects of the good..... I am improving the human existence.[/quote] [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=RoyalBlue]Really? Despite your drawn out explanation of how you operate, you failed to establish what "good" is to us. Would you care to explain how your dynamic changes for the "better" would benefit us overall? When you maximize everything's potential, then, theoretically, there is perfection. That is my antagonist. Perfection. When something becomes perfect, there is no obstacle to overcome, and, thus, there is no reason to continue if
  18. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=RoyalBlue]Advice? I need it not. However, here's some advice to you: Read the Rules and FAQ sections before posting, so as to become a bit more familiar and understanding of the site's regulations. You see, this post here is considered spam, for it offers no sturdy discussion basis, and it will eventually be deleted by a moderator. Forgive me if I was somewhat rude. Well, later.[/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  19. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=RoyalBlue]When I think of New York, I think of the Adirondack Mountains, and of evergreen forests, the Saratoga race tracks, and of my old home. Yes, I lived in New York for a while - in a little town called Malta. It's located in the city of Ballston Spa, in Saratoga County. My old address was 67 Snowberry Rd, Malta, NY 12020 (if anyone wants to look it up), and I do miss it dearly. Oh, the brisk autumn air, the vibrant display of leaves - to think I am missing all of this while I sit in an air-conditioned room here in Texas, hiding myself from the
  20. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=DeepSkyBlue]Wow...there is more to life than just sex. Was she really so blinded as to lose sight of tomorrow? Man, I understand that hormones can really take hold of a person, but this is ridiculous. Did her parents not know that she was having such problems? Was she too ashamed to talk to her parents? What was the deal? Now, thanks to this foolish act, she is forever shackled, bound by the wake of her actions, only to rise every day to a relentless suffering brought upon by her own doing. That is no way to live life.[/COLOR] However, I feel that my

    [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=Navy]Well, after long weeks of picking apart the starting trio based on my preferences, I have finally come to a decision: I shall begin with Naetle. Why? Because I have always chosen from the reptile starters. Example: In Red, I began with Charmander; in Silver, I began with Totodile; in Ruby, I began with Treecko; now I shall begin with Naetle. Why always the reptile? I simply adore reptiles above mammals and birds. Turtles, lizards, snakes - they're all just so very "cool." I wish, though, that they had a Bug-type starter - for I also love insects
  22. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=Navy]This is for Adult Swim, right? Well, I already saw the ending over a year ago (hooray for fansubs), and I must say that they should have kept the story going. [spoiler]Really, the ending flat-out sucked. No kidding. It wasn't even the end of the story, they just cut the series short and left you with a massive cliffhanger. Did they ever defeat Naraku? Will Inuyasha stay with Kagome after the ordeal is over? You do not find out, and you will hate it for that.[/spoiler][/COLOR][/SIZE][/FONT]
  23. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=Navy]Well, in the mall in my town, there works an Albanian girl which I often converse with and have a good time. However, when I asked her out to the Homecoming dance this past Saturday she declined. When I asked her why, she responded that her parents are already looking for some Albanian guy for her to marry when they eventually return to their home country. So, this means that she can't go on dates with guys here (she even gets yelled at whenever she is seen hanging around with other guys) and I seem to have become attracted to her...(I haven't told her ye
  24. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=Navy]Hmm. First off, the purchase of Pokemon versions Red/Blue to Emerald certainly merits me with geek points, several of them, not to mention the fact that I initially played over 620 hours on the original Red version back when it came out, then restarted it for another 200 or so hours. So, yeah, I don't do that anymore, but the fact remains that I still did it in the past. Second, I have recently purchased the Darth Vader voice-changing helmet along with Darth Vader's lightsaber (with lights and sounds!...oh, God, am I ever so miserable), and I dressed
  25. [FONT=Trebuchet MS][SIZE=1][COLOR=Navy][quote name='Retribution']I dunno, it depends on how graphic the violence is. But I think sex appeal still sells, no matter how much of it we are bombarded with. Just because all companies advertise with attractive models doesn't mean that the public eventually becomes desensitized to that sex appeal. People still buy products promoted by young and beautiful models, not "average" people.[/quote] And here I await the day when an uber-nerd can advertise Victoria's Secret.
