Being vegan I have no problem with others eating meat. Just as he said it's how we go about getting it and preparing it for that matter. When you think of it animals eat all meat raw. We don't. We kill it and then kill it again. By killing it again I mean cooking it. I personally think it's more natural to eat it raw then it is to eat it cooked. That one of the reasons I didn't give up raw fish for a while. The whole thing just doesn't sit well with me.

I can respect that, though I disagree. Cooking meat is likely something that developed as a survival method. Human mouths don't have near the amount of germ killing saliva predatory animals have (which is why people say dogs have cleaner mouths than people). Cooking the meat all the way through will kill any harmful bacteria. Where my meat generally doesn't COME from a grocery store, I  don't worry too much about it and enjoy it fairly lightly cooked most of the time, but I would definitely cook any meat bought from a store. In particular beef, pork, and chicken considering the unhealthy ways the animals are raised and slaughtered here in America.

I don't know enough about seafood (other than it tastes good) to know if the same could be said for it.

Hey, we all have some love for Power Rangers here. I actually still enjoy some of the episodes from the first season (in the U.S. that is) whenever I catch one on TV.

Legend of Dragoon is really the only one I can think of, and if I remember correctly, it was received as a fairly mediocre game. Most thought the battle system was poor I think, but I liked it. Of course this is coming from someone who loves games that require timing and reflexes to play them. But I'll admit that the rest of the game, aside from the FMVs, was meh.

Maybe if you could inform us what "Black Frost" is we could help you. Otherwise I could spray paint my grass black and take a picture of the frost in the morning.

I cheated. I Mega Mario'd Bowser in World Eight to finish the game. It was kind of funny, I didn't know for sure if it would work, but I just stepped on him and that was the end of it, heh.

After that I went back to the World Four ghost house and found the exit that lead to the World Seven warp/cannon since I don't even want to try beating World Five's boss as Mini Mario. I like World Seven a lot. My favorite world in SMB3 was World Five, The Sky, and World Seven does a good job living up to that world. So far my favorite was World Six, it was fun, but World Seven has the potential to pass it :D

The only thing I've found that would be considered as "unlockables" after you finish the game are alternate skins for the lower screen. The thing is, they cost 20 star coins and that's not worth it for just a stupid skin.

EDIT: Finished World Seven. Not long enough to surpass World Six in fun factor, but decent.

I guess I'm finished with it for now then. I guess I can finally get back to Magna Carta heheh...I don't remember what was going on in that game anymore, but I'm not starting over :P

I know where my meat comes from. :D

"I can't wait to take the baby swimming and out for walks in the pram. I think I'll be able to cope as I've had lots of practice looking after my brothers.

I wonder where the mother was when she was getting all this "practice."

"I know how to feed a baby its bottle and I can change nappies. But I panic and cry if they're sick and I don't like giving them a bath because I'm a bit frightened.

Like that's all you need to know when it comes to raising a child.

"I was upset and so was my mum, especially as she'd just had my wee brother. We had a big argument and I ended up locking myself in my room and running away to a friend's.

Sounds like a typical kid to me.

She said: "I can give up smoking at any time, but I don't find it affects my pregnancy."

WTF?! Yea, you might not feel the affects dumbass girl but your BABY will. The kid will probably be such an unhealthy mess when it is born you'll  be paying thousands of dollars for medical bills.

I can't fucking believe it. The fact that this shit exists in a modernized, first world country is sickening to me. Hell, even for a third world country eleven year old mothers probably don't happen.


EDIT: I was browsing through the comments and one person said the mother should be prosecuted for negligence. I agree. I also think her children should be taken into foster care, because wow, that's just messed up.

I'm to the first tower in World Six. I don't even want to think about getting to World Seven right now because it will be painful trying to. I think I'll probably just go ahead and finish the game and then go back to World Seven and play through it.

While Mega Mario is useful, it is really ONLY useful in wide open areas where enemies are easy to dodge or kill anyway. Stars would be more useful in more confined places, but I've only found one Star in the whole game so far and I don't even remember where it was.

I did have a fun air battle with Lakitus in 6-A (I think anyway). Stole one's cloud and more just kept coming so I'd shoot them down. I was able to use their clouds through the whole level :D

Still kind of mad there isn't a flight power-up.

Holy Mario! Getting to World 4 was HARD! Haven't played any of World 4 yet, but I'm hoping it is easier than getting to it was.
955  The Rest / General Discussions / Game Journal #2 on the new(ish) boards on: May 17, 2006, 07:11:54 PM
Yea, I'm being a completionist kind of. I warped to World Five from World Two, but went back to finish World Two and am now in World Three.

Still a little miffed there isn't a flight powerup.

The New Super Mario Bros. game is fantastic oldschool goodness. Aside from a few new moves and power-ups it is technically the same as SMB3 and SMW, but my only real complaint is the apparent lack of a flight power-up. I've only made it through the first world, so I guess one may still show up.

But I'm not sure if I should be happy or sad that I finished the first world with forty-one lives...

How's the music in this one? Is it mostly the same classic Mario tunes and remixes or is there a lot of new stuff as well?

There are some new tunes, though I admit I haven't played every Mario game so they may just be new to me. However, I am digging the old tunes and their remixes quite a bit. Hearing the old castle fanfare from the original SMB is great.

It says it is a platformer in the article...

Anyway, wow, lots of side-scrolling Mario love! I am all for this game.
959  The Rest / General Discussions / Bear eats monkey at zoo on: May 17, 2006, 12:09:49 AM
Wow...I wonder who is going to get fired for this one.

I haven't heard of stuff like this happening in a zoo, but I've seen worse than that on TV and in real life, so meh.

I think i 'heard' about it on this site...

Yea, unless it is something widely known, it is best to find a hyperlink to a reputable source to back your claims. "Heard about it" generally isn't good enough.
