  1. I had to read that poem in my English 12 class. My teacher was absolutely gaga over it, calling it the best poem ever written and if we didn't like it then we weren't smart people. Now I was probably the best person in the class at understanding poems, and I had no idea what it was about until she told us. To me that just reaffirmed my theory that the best way to write a "good" poem is to make it so nobody can understand it.
  2. New systems is as much as an engineering decision as a marketing one. Designers just can't wait to try making games on something new.
  3. Of course graphics aren't everything. That's why I loved Wind Waker: the graphics were simple enough to bring out the amazing gameplay.
  4. I've already got it reserved and I think about it every day. I honestly don't know if the realistic look is going to be that great though. Not that the Gamecube can't dish out some nice eye-candy, but it will probably be a step back from the graphical perfection of Wind Waker. With cel-shaded graphics you never get any pixel-fuzz, overlapping polygons and the like. Not to mention that with the cartoony look you were never surprised to just find a few symmetrical bushes lined up in a row and the like because it fitted the cartoon motif. It fit with Zelda and the atmosphere of the game was unpar
  5. Arrested Developement and Whose Line is it Anyway?
  6. According to Xeper reading Ayn Rand's fiction is irrational because the events depicted never existed.
  7. I really don't think a situation like that is an issue of morality, but rather just being a good friend. I myself am very generous with my things and share a lot, but I have one friend who is just a jerk about that sort of thing. Frankly, it would then be immoral to keep giving him things, because he's just being a bad friend.
  8. "Winter Evening" is also my favorite. Go figure, eh? My second favorite is this one I saw in a shop once and never again. It was a large mountain valley set somewhere in the Canadian Rockies, and it had a single train running down it. To me that just screamed "Look what we can do".
  9. Okay, I've had enough with these responses. Thank you to those who helped. And Febod, just so you know: she didn't 'flake' me for 2 weeks. We had scheduling conflicts with both our jobs.
  10. No need to worry about reapplying, I'm at about 6500 points right now. I have in total 6 planets. Net Fleet: - 50+ small fighters - 40 or so Heavy Fighters - 5 Small cargo and 15 Large - 14 Cruisers - 3 Battleships
  11. Okay, first of all she loved the flowers. Second, I wasn't implying that the comsumption of alcohol itself was bad (though clearly she is evading something/i]). It was that it's really painful to watch someone you care about kill themselves like that. She understood this, and calling it off was completely mutual.
  12. To start off, I'm 17 and just finishing my last year of high school before college. I'm not much of a social person; I have only one real friend and several many acquaintences. I never took an active interest in having a lot of friends, mostly because there aren't many of my peers at an intellectual level high enough for me to converse with. :S As such, I've never had a girlfriend and have only been on 2 dates before. My experience with girls has always been long periods of nothing where I have crushes but don't act on them, follwed by a break-down where I get so lonely I ask out someone I'm p
  13. We're fighting the pirates now too? Man all these wars mean to me is a billion messages every time I log on.
  14. It wasn't as great as it looked, they just allowed private insurance if a court deems it an emergency. And again, just in Quebec. The official stance amoung most people here is that paying for things is immoral. But I'm really surprised about this law; I never thought that kind of stuff could happen. I guess I had this idea of the constitution protecting people.
