Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Well, since I forgot to do it the first time... (and the second...), I might as well do it the THIRD!! I am Angel (it has an accent and I'm too lazy to look up the Alt Code), and that accent means I am Male. Which means no girls on the interwebs, which is a shame because girls make almost everything...

Re: Swine Flu

Welcome to SARS, take three: pigs can fly!

aren't we still worried about the first two becoming pandemics?


Also, AIDs is a gorilla flu and look at it's great survival rate!
In other news, TB is making a comeback. All hail the mask of red death!

Re: Books you had to read for school that you could not stand

I found Old Man and the Sea to be physically impossible to finish. At the start of the book, I couldn't read more then five pages without falling asleep. By the middle, I was down to half a page. I ended up spark noting it and got an A on all the tests because he drew everything out so much. I swear...

Re: "Matrix Revisited" Discussion

I saw The Matrix for the first time on it's Ten Year Anniversary (huzzah for great timing!), and I have to agree with the majority of the people in this thread. Great movie, but very shitty backstory. In my opinion, this is all quite ok, because it is exactly that: A backstory. It's a little somethi...

Re: Do you shut your computer down at night?

Re: The Flood versus EVERYTHING

Re: Opera, Chrome, Firefox, OR?

I'm gonna have to say firefox because it's so much easier to manage filetype preferences with it (i.e., defaults to windows) then it is in Opera. Opera continually thinks it's my torrent program. Although, if you're willing to use 2 browsers (I do) then Firefox+Opera hasn't failed me yet. Opera:Fast...

Re: "No One Must Know " Discussion

I think we have all made another very important logical fallacy: We have little proof that that man is actually dead. As noted (many times) it would be quite out of character for BHG^2 to actually commit murder, and that large bag (much to large for a body, might I add) is quite possibly filled with...

Re: Portal Paradox

To settle an earlier point: Portals obey all laws of physics with the SOLE EXCEPTION of conservation of energy, otherwise the game would have been unplayable. This makes sense, as we've never (to my knowledge) actually PROVED conservation of mass-energy, we simply haven't yet disproved(?) it yet. Th...
