3571  The Rest / General Discussions / Why people believe Americans are stupid. on: January 16, 2007, 12:11:12 PM
Quote from: "Dincrest"
But I wonder... I'm sure in other parts of the world, the average populace is just as clueless, if not more so, about the world beyond their country.

They are. It's not just an American thing. Granted, some Americans thinking there are 37 states is kind of... disturbing, but lots of people in other countries are just as ignorant, if not moreso.
3572  The Rest / General Discussions / Sometimes...you just need to slap a bitch. on: January 16, 2007, 12:05:28 AM
I know someone who complains like this. She doesn't get an extravagant birthday party and it's the end of the world. Her parents don't compliment her with kisses and hugs for every little thing and she complains. She doesn't like the rules somewhere and constantly whines about it. The worst part is, she blames everyone but herself. Her parents, her peers, the people who associate with her, everybody except her is to blame. To top it all off, she has to see a therapist about this shit. I'm pretty whacked in the head and even I don't need a fucking shrink, that's just ridiculous.

I can't help but be callous and hostile to people like this because I honestly believe they don't deserve their life.
3573  The Rest / General Discussions / Apple announces iPhone on: January 11, 2007, 08:46:44 PM
If it shuts off the phone portion, what's the use of having a phone to begin with? I mean, I carry my phone around so that people can contact me when I'm not at home. If I switch it to music mode and that just happens to turn off my phone functions there's no real point to it. This goes especially if it's being pushed as a 'business product.' If it's a business product it'll make even LESS sense.

Quote from: "Hidoshi"
The Blackberry, Treo, and other such smartphones all cost around $350-$450, even with yearly contracts. Can you get them cheaper? Yes. But they've also been on the market for years now. The price has come down due to exposure and competition. The iPhone is brand new and features an interface no one else has. That pretty much justifies cost. Don't want a smartphone? Well then don't get one. This isn't meant to be a standard-level cellphone like most of us will buy. It's meant to be a smartphone.

Sony made excuses about the PS3 too, which the iPhone will cost as much as, if not more. So it's only okay when a company you're a fan of sells it? Don't be a mindless drone fanboy. Something tells me that if Sony or Microsoft's names were on this thing you wouldn't be so quick to jump on the train.

Quote from: "Hidoshi"
Superfluous functions? No. Maybe for you because your lifestyle and business practises don't require such a device. Many people DO however, evidenced by the widespread use of smartphones. Also, most have the same average battery life.

I'm sorry, but if you check the weather on your phone, then you're a retard. And you say they have the same average battery life, but I wonder how long that'll last when someone starts pumping the tunes from the iPhone. Along with all its features AND functionality as a phone, the battery life will drop like a rock.

Quote from: "Hidoshi"
I understand where most of the complaints come from, but you gotta do your research first. The iPhone is not for the standard consumer. It's a speciality business product like the Blackberry or Treo.

That still makes the price absurd. And please, don't tell me the whole 'sleek and sexy' look means it's being advertised as a 'business product.' Was the iPod supposed to be a 'business product,' too? Everything about this looks like it's being marketed to the average joe, who, like I said, can buy an entire iPod AND a workable phone for less than what this phone costs. Instant fail.

Quote from: "Ramza"
Riesz/Lise (the amazon spear chick) is my all-time favorite character. I've beaten SD3 three times, and each time I had her in my party so I could take her to a different class by the end. She's simply excellent.

I just played Reisz every game because she was a total hottie.

I find it superfluous. Nobody needs that many functions on their phone. If someone buys it to be both a phone and an mp3 player, it'll just have an absurdly low battery life. At best it's an overpriced phone and a halfassed iPod rolled into one for an atrocious price. From the price estimates I'm hearing you can get a full iPod AND a decent workable phone for the same price.

Whatever happened to phones just being phones?

On Vaan and Penelo: I think the deal with them is that the game's trying to say that you don't have to be important or well known to want to make a difference. Vaan and Penelo just want to protect their home, and even though they're just your average citizens, they're doing all they can to make a difference. You don't have to be some knight or a prince to want to defend your homeland.

"I'm a pirate" "I'm an old man." "I'm a princess." "I'm gay."

3580  The Rest / General Discussions / Bye-Bye to Blu-Ray? on: January 07, 2007, 02:17:54 AM
I've hated the fact that recently Sony's been using nothing but their own proprietary mediums for their stuff. Hope this is true and we get cheaper PS3s.
3581  The Rest / General Discussions / Hobby versus Lifestyle and the monies involved on: January 07, 2007, 01:01:23 AM
Quote from: "Dincrest"
Jedi?  Nah.  That whole lifestyle isn't for me.  It's like joining a convent or monastery.  I'd have to dedicate my life to the faith and not be able to party, go out with the ladies, fall in love, get married, have kids... way too restricting for me.  

I think you can come to a reasonable solution.

I finished Metal Gear Solid: Portable Ops and Jeanne d'Arc a while ago.

Working on Wild Arms 5 and Dawn of Mana now.
3583  The Rest / General Discussions / Saddam Hussein Executed in Iraq on: January 04, 2007, 07:31:20 PM
Quote from: "Bloodstar6078"
@Dios: I'll remember that when you're on trial.

3584  The Rest / General Discussions / Saddam Hussein Executed in Iraq on: January 04, 2007, 11:18:16 AM
I just saw the execution on TV (since my internet is shot and I can't access any video files at all), and what bothered me more than the actual execution (because let's face it, he had it coming) was how people were treated it: like it was some sort of dog show or special event that they had to use their camera phones to photograph or record.

Say what you will about Hussein, he was a terrible person who murdered hundreds of thousands, etc., and I'll agree. But I think that when a person's about to die you should at the very least give him his last few minutes of dignity, no matter how big of a bastard or son of a bitch he was. I don't disagree with the sentence - in fact, it's something that was pretty much a given, but I find the way that the people there treated it disgusting.

I'm not gonna crusade against it, because as it has been said, "It's disturbing how there's more focus on Hussein's last two minutes of life than the 69 years before where he murdered countless hundreds of thousands of people," but I find it somewhat appalling.

Hopefully it will fix all of the bugs that FFVI had. What is it with 90s games and incompetent programmers?

You're saying every game today is bug free? Hallelujah!

Oh wait.
