So the US and a few allied nations (like England) are in positions to do a surgical missile strike on Syria because of the use of chemical weapons on its own people.  Was it Asaad who used the chemical weapons or was it the rebel forces?  And there doesn't seem to be a follow through to the plan of "pull the pin off this grenade and throw"  If there's no follow through to the strike, then whatever message is being sent is hollow at best.  And it doesn't help that Syria has backing from China, Russia, and Iran so any US/Briton strike will turn into a debacle.  

And it seems off the coast of Canada, large populations of herring are bleeding from the gills (which happens when there's a lack of oxygen in the water) and their eyes.  One of the going theories is that the Fukishima fallout's already contaminated waters this far.  Other theories say that it's not Fukushima alone, but the combination over the years/decades/maybe centuries of water pollution through drilling, dumping, fracking, etc.  So, if the level of damage being reported is not an exaggeration, we're potentially seeing what could eventually become a large scale contamination of a big chunk of our food supply.  We humans have such a weird relationship with the ocean.  It's our pantry AND our toilet.    

But who cares about all of that when we Americans can all hypocritically shout righteous indignation over Hannah Montana grinding her patootie all up in Beetlejuice's business.  Because, after all, THAT is the top news story nowadays. 

All of these issues are importantly, even the disgust with Miley. ;)

Well, I imagine you would; if taking 30 seconds on Google to fact check is too much to ask I gather you'd look like a fool more often than not.

Judging by the number of people who were actually taken in by this (6 year old) article on this very board, it only confirms my pet peeve: people would rather be outraged and ignorant than be rational and fact check.

I didn't fact check because I knew it would get on your nerves if I played gullible.

Seriously, I'm the type that usually double checks before I tell someone else. I'll dwell on the possibility of something like that actually existing before I research it to see if it is true or false. It wouldn't surprise me if there were people out there that would actually do something like that.

I don't know if this is real or not, but apparently dead baby soup is now a delicacy in China to improve virility.  http://www.thecontroversialfiles.net/2013/07/chinese-eat-baby-soup-for-sex.html

Ummm... yeah... if everything the world claims is an aphrodisiac really worked, then we'd all be walking around with perpetual boners humping everything that moves. 

Yeah, that's all kinds of wrong right there.

The way that guy throws the raccoon is hilarious. There is a brief glimpse on the raccoon's face that I find hilarious.

I'm sure there will be a song about this botched contest. Something along the lines of how they couldn't be together.

What if the creepy 39 year old guy offered more stability than the dudes that she has dated?
36  The Rest / General Discussions / Re: Today's News on: July 19, 2013, 11:40:05 AM
Yeah, so a 39 year old is in a contest with a bunch of teenie-bopping girls to meet Taylor Swift backstage....to sniff her hair.  And thanks to the internet, he's in the lead!



She needs new material for her songs.

That's the best thing I've ever seen.

It's like if Leslie Nielsen was dressed up in drag in a Naked Gun movie and was bumbling a investigation.

lol. So true.

Crackhead? Have I missed something.

Are you aware that every person that doesn't like FF6 is considered a crackhead? Those that adore FF6 are considered lovers of fine art, contrary to those that don't like FF6.

I have my AC on and my AC works fine. It's just not doin' shit 'cause it's THAT HOT OUT.


Anyway I made a list comparing square-developed games I like to those I dislike or was mixed on. The spread between the like/dislike/neutral columns is less than I though it would be.

Think I might do something similar with 16-bit console RPGs in general, later.

Why do you not like FF6, crackhead?

@Dincrest: The theme of XV is 'Bonds' and they said that the core of the story take itself quite seriously but there is still humor to keep things balanced.

That said, as someone who has followed Versus/XV for years I think you're reading too much into this considering that Kazushige Nojima is the writer for XV and he usually focuses more on the relationship of the characters more than anything else but we'll see once it comes out.

Also more info is assumed to be shared at TGS.


Eh. I'm excited about this FF but seeing how Nojima writes leaves me a little leery that the story will be about bromance and the adventure therein.

I didn't want the xbone to fail, MS did by doing everything they did.

For sure. Competition is good for the consumer, but Microsoft being this badly mismanaged practically begs for a good kick in the rear. They deserve to get beat for being so disconnected.

All of the Sony fanboys that proudly proclaimed "I love PS3 because I can play online for free!" all of the sudden don't mind at all that they have to pay. I still liked what One had to show more. But in the end all this "This one is better" crap won't mean anything. It'll be like last time and they'll sell about the same.

PS4 is going to sell like hotcakes on every continent that is not North America...
MS is going to get crushed in sales.

I'm glad. Microsoft has been so stupid that it is comical.

Trailer looked good. Gameplay looks different and interesting. Story seems intriguing. I see potential.
