Re: Engineering Degree Online?

On other programs you can take that might give you some background, physics wouldn't be bad. I have no idea if this is offered (from Canada) but a community college that offers an engineering technology program wouldn't be the worst. Other than that, I would look around and see what is available. I...

Engineering Degree Online?

I am looking to find out if anyone knows of any online colleges that offer engineering courses. I've been searching for about a week now without any luck. Now, I have found that both Thomas Edison and Old Dominion offer online classes with Mechanical Engineering and Applied Science in Technology wit...

Re: the 'Aw shucks, I screwed up' thread

I bought Enter the Kettlebell by Pavel and started doing the program minimum. After working on it for about two weeks I decided to try the Rite of Passage. I have thoroughly humbled myself and am back on the program minimum. Also because of said humbling I messed up my elbow and have now had an extr...

Taking Protein Supplements On/Off

I did a search for similar threads but I couldn't find if anyone asked, so I'll just ask here. I've started working out recently with a buddy. Now his goal is to get much larger reaching his max allowable weight. Now, I'm already at my maximum weight, in fact maybe a pound over, but let's not get pa...

Re: Why separate weights from cardio?

Anyway - if work outs that are tailored specifically for muscle building are better at building muscle, then why do I see people doing CrossFit getting ripped faster than people pumping iron at the gym in traditional "let's keep cardio and weights separate" workouts? Well, as you said you...

Re: Why separate weights from cardio?

I'd say because of the thought process between the two. While it may not be entirely true all the time or for everyone most people who are into heavy lifting do so to bulk up and build mass. Running is counter-intuitive to that thought process as it's an effective means of burning calories, the same...

You either find one (to play with) in someone else's level or you buy the Metal Gear Solid level pack. I advise the second 'cos its quite a fun level pack :) Wow,...

Re: Team Fortress 2

Wow, seems Team Fortress is full of heated banter as much out of the game as it is in game. Plus, look at all that slang, I really am new to all this. Which brings me to my next point, another hugely noobish question. How do I get to servers using only an IP address or servers that aren't just liste...

Hey everybody, I recently got around to installing Orange Box on this sweet new computer that can actually play it. Haven't stopped playing Team Fortress 2 for a week. But I have a couple of questions, probably super-n00b questions but meh. EDIT: Just answered all my own questions. Thanks for playin...

Re: LittleBigPlanet!

My levels grow much more organically. I tend to start with one neat idea and then kinda go with it until I get another neat idea and by the time I have a third one I've got enough to build a whole level :) Detail comes at the end though. It's a hard rule to enforce, but necessary. I find it easier ...

Re: A thread about Linkin Park.

I think the point brought up earlier is most valid. It is true that they reach their audience effectively; I think a large portion of teenagers were listening around the time when they hit the stores with Hybrid Theory and then later with Meteora. But when you grow up out of that phase you start to ...

Re: LittleBigPlanet!

Sad to see LBP do so poorly. I've heard only a couple of bad reviews on the game and even in those bad reviews, the complaints were pretty lame. I hope this means MM won't drop support for this great game. On the plus/negative side, I am loving the level creator but I am not getting the hang of maki...

Re: XKCD PSN/XBL/Wii/Steam/Specific Game IDs

Yo, my PSN is DonutSquared. Playing lots of Little Big Planet and Motor Storm Pacific Rift.

And, I was wondering if there was a listing for the battlefield games(I play battlefield 2142) or if I just missed it. Anyway, if anyone plays that I'm DonutSquared on that as well.

Yesterday I learned the subtle diffrences between nihilism and athiesm. Well, maybe they're not so subtle, but I couldn't honestly make an intelligent arguement about the differences before. Nihilism is when you don't hold anything sacred and believe life is a big ball oh chaotic fuck all. Atheism ...

Re: Today You Learned

Today I learned that making a straight cut with no bevel using an oxy-acetylene torch requires three distinct variables to come together: pre-heat, speed, and torch tip distance from metal. And when one's off your whole cut is fucked and you have to do it all over again. Yesterday I learned the subt...
