Whipper Snappers 2: Get off My Lawn!

That sounds awesome...Someone should seriously make a game out of that!

I really thought it was funny how out of touch they were on the matter before them. They don't see anything but GTA as being representative all video games have to offer. Heaven forbid parents take responsibility for what they allow their children to play.

Anyway, I don't think there is much to worry about. Fictional novels and short stories, movies, and comic books have all suffered the same criticism and come out fine on the end. I wonder how many Congressmen read fiction novels without even knowing what Thomas Jefferson thought of the idea of fiction? I wonder if Roger Ebert knows how novelists treated his beloved films when they first appeared?

Seriously Congress dudes and dudettes, read your pop art history before you try to do something about a newer form of pop art.

Holy Shit! Someone had too much time on their hands. Pretty awesome though.

EDIT: Just as a warning though, Kirby is WAY scary.
EDIT #3: Doh! The link is fixed now.

Yea, I suppose you're right. The original Megaman series is pretty much synonymous with Nintendo. Megaman 1-7 as well as Megaman and Bass all being on Nintendo systems makes him more suited for the game than Solid Snake. :P

Eus...you shouldn't have said MegaMan. I now want MegaMan in Brawl.

If that trademark has an expiration date of 2012, it may be awhile until we see anything on that game.

If we ever see anything on it for that matter as last I heard the Chrono team now works exclusively on MMO projects.

Dove?  Nah.  I think Irish Spring would be funnier.  Don't know why, but I think it'd be funnier than Dove.

I KNOW WHY! Because St. Patrick is famed for having purged all the snakes from Ireland long ago! Now we know how he did it: Irish Spring Soap.

Accursed were the Snakes of Ireland,
Until the venerable Saint Patrick did
Hold forth soap within his mighty hand.
The Satanic snakes fled from the sight of
The holy soap, and died in the sand.
Never again did anyone see the beasts of
Lucifer in the hills and fields of Ireland.

My characters were level 85 in FFIV Advance and I owned the shit out of the optional boss, Brachioradios. Still kind of a tough fight though because of his whirlwind and Globe 199 attacks that instantly killed whoever he hit. I don't think I've ever cast Full-Life as many times as I did in this battle. After that I warped out of the Lunar Ruins and went and beat the crap out of Zeromus without any trouble at all and watched the ending.

What is this game about?

I really hope you're just trying to be annoying.

I have a sneaky suspicion...no, call it a premonition that someone is going to get banned.

It sums up what I think the movie will be like pretty well.

I'm currently reading Frankenstein by Mary Shelley for my British Lit. class. I've read it before, but it is a different book now I know the background of ideas it was based on. Still is enjoyable, although I have to admit having to read it for class has killed some of my enjoyment because it is a fairly easy text to pick apart. If I had been reading it for recreation I would have loved it.

I can't sleep tonight, so I popped in FFIV Advance and tackled the Lunar Ruins. I'm to Kain's area but I was owned by the boss.

EDIT: Holy shit...my party is fucking awesome thanks to all the treasure in the Lunar Ruins. Cecil, Kain, and Cid all have 255 attack power! Palom and Porom are also rocking, though Palom is interchangeable with Rydia. I also fought Zeromus EG a couple of times. I was kind of disappointed, he was pretty easy. But apparently there is another optional boss once you've completed each character's area. Though I have to admit I was pretty disappointed by the areas in general. I was hoping for a little more character development but the only character who was given any was Kain and his was pretty damn good.

So all I have left is that other optional boss fight. After that I may go own the shit out of Zeromus just for the hell of it as my characters are around level 80.
959  The Rest / General Discussions / Girl terrified of pickles on: June 29, 2006, 11:19:25 PM
I don't know which is more sad:

1. The girl being afraid of pickles and mustard.
2. The fact Maury actually aired something like this. I mean, Maury is a pretty sorry show already, but wow, this is just terrible.

Though I can somewhat understand a fear of pickles. I didn't watch enough of the video to hear a possible explanation to this fear but I used to have a fear of my own that was pretty irrational. My parents tell me when I was teething I choked on one of my mother's earrings. For a while when I was little I was afraid of jewelry in all shapes or forms. I didn't know why until my parents told me that story. I'm not even really free from that either because as an "adult" jewelry disgusts me to the point of making me gag.

Though I will suggest watching Naruto for no other reason than episode 133. I stopped watching anime for the most part after seeing that episode because it was so good.

Let me guess... Naruto is beaten and looks to be dead/unconcious when he miraculously recovers thanks to that Nine-Tails thing, and goes on to beat his opponent into a pulp?

So.. How does that differ from the other 132 episodes? :P

1. The animation was fantastic.
2. The tension. Where before Naruto is fighting "bad guys," in this episode he's fighting
a friend, Sasuke.

It's the most emotionally charged episode of any anime I've ever seen and is really the only episode of Naruto that I would say is excellent. The rest are just mediocre.
