  1. I think it creates an undeserved aire of confidence. It's not a real accomplishment and not worth a breath of bragging rights. But that's just my opinion. Do I care enough to actually go to options and disable it? No.
  2. Well that went off pretty well. Except for the Justice messing up the oath. So apparently they have something like 12 inaugural balls to go to which will last until roughly 3am. It's good to be the king.
  3. [quote name='Allamorph'][FONT=Arial] Watch your ellipses. Four periods at the ends of sentences, not three.[/font] [/QUOTE] Actually it [I]is[/I] three, not four. Well the response is pretty much what I expected so far. But I decided I'd rather do something unique and fail doing it than do what I have done before. Thanks for the feedback so far everyone.
  4. I was kind of having a hard time thinking of what to do with my character but I think I can put something together now. Sorry for the delay, Vicky.
  5. [quote name='JJ']As horrible as this sounds, he did "get" it for being a terrorist. Reading the article sent a chill down my spine as I read what all they had done to him. Some of that is almost unbearable and the fact that he landed in the hospital twice? I honestly think there was justice served here, if he truly is who he's been labeled as.[/QUOTE] Justice? I would hardly call this justice. "Rumsfeld warned in 2002 that torturing would jeopardize convictions of 550 detainees at Gitmo, hundreds ultimately go free with no charges. Dozens are tortured, eight fatally. Three
  6. [quote name='James'][font=franklin gothic medium]We do already have a name for Olivier's father, although I can't access that just now. [/font][/QUOTE] I searched for it but for the life of me couldn't find it. Thanks, James. I'll change that in my post.
  7. [quote name='DeLarge'][SIZE=1]Actually, scratch that, I really can't. You Yanks and your crazy traditions... [/SIZE][/QUOTE] As you dust off your powdered wigs and go to court.
  8. Alright, its up there. I followed those before me and kind of molded the Achard family a bit more. If anything needs to be changed, let me know.
  9. [FONT="Book Antiqua"][B]Your name: [/B] Nicodemus Lockharvest [B]Your age: [/B] By his physical appearance one would judge Lockharvest to be no older than 65, but he refuses to reveal his real age, seeing it as a sign of weakness. [B]Your connection to the [B][COLOR="DarkRed"]Almagest[/COLOR][/B] OR [COLOR="DarkRed"][B]Achard[/B][/COLOR] family: [/B] Nicodemus Lockharvest was an orphan from the moment he was born, but was adopted by Olivier [COLOR="DarkRed"][B]Achard’s[/B][/COLOR] father (Laurent [B][COLOR="DarkRed"]Achard[/COLOR][/B] Sr.) when he was in his earl
  10. Both nations have habitually overstepped their bounds. That's all I will say regarding the matter because many people have stated my opinions already. [quote name='Chabichou'][COLOR="#004a6f"] The only obstacle is Israel and the U.S. [/COLOR][/QUOTE] I don't know if I like the way this sounds... Obstacle? I think Otaku's threat level has just been raised to orange. Yikes.
  11. Susan J. Crawford (the official in charge of deciding whether Guantanamo Bay detainees go to trial) has declined to refer Mohammed al-Qahtani (a Saudi national who attempted to take part in the September 11th attacks as the 5th man on flight 93) for trial because it is now evident that he was tortured while imprisoned. [url]http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2009/01/13/AR2009011303372.html[/url] So much for Bush's torture policy bringing justice to the world and avenging the deaths of those killed on September 11th. Now this would be terrorist will go free because
  12. The size of the event is only in response to public interest. Costly measures had to be taken to meet public demand and avert certain mishaps from happening. Though many will definitely occur regardless. This is a money making machine for the DC area, which will certainly recoup any losses. The bars, shops, stores, restaurants, hotels... hundreds of millions of dollars are coming to DC on the 20th. About 40 million dollars has already been raised to offset the cost of the event, and certainly much more will be raised on inauguration day. Also, the high security detail... I don't thi
  13. [QUOTE=Meet the Parents] [SIZE="1"]Jack: Greg, how come you don't like cats? Greg: I don't not like cats. I-I just-- I just prefer dogs. I mean, I'm just more of a dog kind of, you know--Come home, wagging their little tails, happy to see you kind of-- Jack: You need that assurance? You prefer an emotionally shallow animal? You see, Greg, when you yell at a dog, his tail will go between his legs and cover his genitals, his ears will go down. A dog is very easy to break, but cats make you work for their affection. They don't sell out the way dogs do. [/SIZE][/QUOTE] hilariou
  14. Very nicely done both of you. You both paint a very vivid picture of the despair and hopelessness laid before you. My vote will go for Delarge for the following reason: The first post told me how the character was feeling. The second post explained to me his actions and that in turn allowed me to gauge how he felt. While the first post did this in a way, Delarge handled the subtle nature of failure and fall from glory very well.
  15. cats are the lazy man's pet hence, I own cats.
