Gamers Chat / Xbox Gun Topic Again-again
« on: January 20, 2004, 04:28:00 PM »
I haven't heard of anymore except for the Silent Scope series, but I think that there is going to be a special gun (with a scope?) for that game.

Politics, News and Religion / Intelligence And Grades
« on: June 07, 2005, 10:57:00 AM »
QUOTE
In 1999, The New Yorker published a transcript indicating that Bush had received a cumulative score of 77 for his first three years at Yale and a roughly similar average under a non-numerical rating system during his senior year.

Kerry, who graduated two years before Bush, got a cumulative 76 for his four years, according to a transcript that Kerry sent to the Navy when he was applying for officer training school. He received four D's in his freshman year out of 10 courses, but improved his average in later years.


Thier averages were roughly the same, but Kerry was seen as an intellectual and Bush was seen as an average to dumb good ol' boy.  What gave people this impression?  Was it accents?  Was is mispronouncing words?  Sense of humor?  Looks?  Media bias?  I'm just curious as to what drives someone's perceptions of a person and thier intelligence?  What do you guys think it was?

I really don't want this to turn into a thread about who is better or who you like better because I think that has been discussed to death.  We pretty much know who likes who and who hates who.  So, please try to keep it on topic by discussing what gives people the perception of intelligence.

Politics, News and Religion / Confusing Ruling
« on: January 14, 2005, 04:44:00 PM »
I guess this could go along with Melon's thread about double standards for certain groups, but in a different way.

http://www.cnn.com/2005/EDUCATION/01/14/head.scarf.ap/index.html' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>CNN article

Tenesse has ruled that a Muslim student can wear a head scarf when the dress code states that there is to be no headwear in school.  Yet her hajib is impartant to her faith as it says that Muslim females must have their heads covered while in public.  The confusion comes in because wasn't it recently decided that there could be no prayer in school because of not wanting to give the impression of a government ok to any religion?  Doesn't this kind of go against that same argument?  That the school is somewhat endorsing the Muslim faith?

I guess it could be argued that other religious students can wear rings or necklaces on them that have religious symbology on them if they are within the normal rules of the dress code. but only because it is within the confines of the dress code.  In this case they are changing the rules for one group of students (or just one student in the article).  Are they going to have to allow WWJD hats now too?  Or kippot for Jewish students?  Or hats for any student that wants to wear headwear?

This should not turn into a discussion about any religion being better than another.  I just want opinions on what people think about this ruling.  Does anybody even care?

Politics, News and Religion / Early Voting
« on: October 18, 2004, 02:05:00 PM »
Early voting started today where I live.  People can go to the one center that is opened and cast their ballot before November 2nd.  Lets hope this does not lead to people voting multiple times.  I live in Florida and we have enough troubles with voting already.

Edit....Looks like the http://www.jacksonville.com/tu-online/stories/101804/met_earlyvoting.shtml' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>controversy has already started.

Politics, News and Religion / Not A Discussion Forum...
« on: June 14, 2004, 09:41:00 AM »
I agree wholeheartedly.  I had quit posting in this forum for that reason but this seems like a worthwhile topic...if it stays on track.  

I am pretty conservative on most issues.  Some issues I am a little liberal on (shudder) but I am not an extremist.  Based on the issues and the candidates so far, I will probably be voting Rebuplican in November, but before I totally make up my mind, I want to hear the debates and the candidates solutions for the issues that plague the US right now.  So far, we haven't heard a lot from either party except how bad they think their opponent is.  Hopefully as the election grows closer we will hear the candidates discuss issues that are important to all Americans.  We will just have to wait and see.

http://www.fundrace.org' class='bbc_url' title='External link' rel='nofollow external'>Fundrace

Find out who your neighbors are contributing campaign funds to....And how much!!

Just type in your address and zip code and it tells you who has donated and how much they have donated.  Looks like Bush is definately more popular.

Music / Help Me Brainstorm?
« on: May 12, 2004, 01:31:00 PM »
I don't know a lot about electronics, so I don't know if this would work, but it seems that you could somehow attach the power source to a foot pedal so you could turn it off and on while you are playing.

Comedy Forum / The Men Commandments
« on: October 06, 2004, 11:18:00 AM »
1.) It is ok for a Man to cry under the following circumstances:

- When a heroic dog dies to save its master.
- The moment Angelina Jolie starts unbuttoning her blouse.
- After wrecking your boss' car.
- One hour, 12 minutes, 37 seconds into "The Crying Game".
- When she is using her teeth.

2.) Any Man who brings a camera to a bachelor party may be legally killed and eaten by his friends.

3.) Unless he murdered someone in your family, you must bail a friend out of jail within 12 hours.

4.) If you've known a Man for more than 24 hours, his sister is off limits forever, unless you actually marry her.

5.) Moaning about the brand of free beer in a friend's fridge is forbidden. Complain at will if the temperature is unsuitable.

6.) No Man shall ever be required to buy a birthday present for another Man. In fact, even remembering your friend's birthday is strictly optional.

7.) On a road trip, the strongest bladder determines pit stops, not the weakest.

8.) When stumbling upon other men watching a sporting event, you may ask the score of the game in progress, but you may never ask who's playing.

9.) It is permissible to drink a fruity alcopop drink only when you're sunning on a tropical beach... and it's delivered by a topless supermodel...and it's free.

10.) Only in situations of moral and/or physical peril are you allowed to kick another Man in the nuts.

11.) Unless you're in prison, never fight naked.

12.) Friends don't let friends wear Speedos. Ever. Issue closed.

13.) If a Man's fly is down, that's his problem, you didn't see anything.

14.) Women who claim they "love to watch sports" must be treated as spies until they demonstrate knowledge of the game and the ability to drink as much as the other sports watchers.

15.) A Man in the company of a hot, suggestively dressed woman must remain sober enough to fight.

16.) Never hesitate to reach for the last beer or the last slice of pizza, but not both - that's just mean.

17.) If you compliment a Man on his six-pack, you'd better be talking about his choice of beer.

18.) Never join your girlfriend or wife in discussing a friend of yours, except if she's withholding sex pending your response.

19.) Phrases that may NOT be uttered to another Man while lifting weights:

- Yeah, Baby, Push it!
- C'mon, give me one more! Harder!
- Another set and we can hit the showers!

20.) Never talk to a Man in a bathroom unless you are on equal footing: i.e. Both urinating, both waiting in line, etc. For all other situations, an almost imperceptible nod is all the conversation you need.

21.) Never allow a telephone conversation with a woman to go on longer than you are able to have sex with her. Keep a stopwatch by the phone. Hang up if necessary.

22.) The morning after you and a girl who was formerly "just a friend" have carnal drunken monkey sex, the fact that you're feeling weird and guilty is no reason not to nail her again before the discussion about what a big mistake it was.

23.) There is no reason for guys to watch Men's Ice Skating or Men's Gymnastics. Ever.

24.) When you are queried by a buddy's wife, girlfriend, mother, father, priest, shrink, dentist, accountant, or dog walker, you need not and should not provide any useful information whatsoever as to his whereabouts. You are permitted to deny his very existence.

25.) You may exaggerate any anecdote told in a bar by 50 percent without recrimination; beyond that, anyone within earshot is allowed to call 'BULLSHIT!'.

Exception: When trying to pick up a girl, the allowable exaggeration rate rises to 400 percent.

26.) The minimum amount of time you have to wait for another guy who's running late is 5 minutes. For a girl, you are required to wait 10 minutes for every point of hotness she scores on the classic 1-10 babe scale.

27.) Agreeing to distract the ugly friend of a hot babe that your buddy is trying to hook up with is your legal duty. Should you get carried away with your good deed and end up having sex with the beast, your pal is forbidden to speak of it, even at your bachelor party.

28.) Before dating a buddy's "ex", you are required to ask his permission and he in return is required to grant it.

29.) The universal compensation for buddies who help you move is beer.

30.) A Man must never own a cat or like his girlfriend's cat.

31.) When your girlfriend/wife expresses a desire to fix her whiney friend up with your pal, you may give her the go-ahead only if you'll be able to warn your buddy and give him time to prepare excuses about joining the priesthood.

32.) If a buddy is out-numbered, out-Manned, or too drunk to fight, you must jump into the fight.

Exception: If within the last 24 hours his actions have caused you to think, "What this guy needs is a good ass-whoopin.", then you may sit back and enjoy.

33.) If a buddy is already singing along to a song in the car, you may not join him...too gay.

34.) Under no circumstances may two men share an umbrella.

35.) When a buddy is trying to hook up, you may sabotage him only in a manner that gives you no chance of hooking up either.

36.) Before allowing a drunken friend to cheat on his girl, you must attempt one intervention. If he is able to get on his feet, look you in the eye, and deliver a "FUCK OFF!" You are absolved of your of responsibility.

37.) Never, EVER slap or smack another Man.

Xbox Case/Hardware modding / Light Gun Mods
« on: January 26, 2004, 12:08:00 PM »
Has anybody modded a light gun?  I want to mod the Silent Scope one when it comes out because it looks pretty goofy.  It would be cool to make one look like a real sniper rifle.
