Re: "Scary" Discussion

I was born in [...] '87 [....] I don't remember Reagan or Bush Sr. being president, so I guess I wasn't a very politically attentive five-year-old. :wink: I've been using the internet since 1998. I had floppies and a VCR. I didn't have an NES, but my friends did... I had a Genesis and do remember b...

Re: "Scribblenauts" Discussion

Now... the $158.00 question... is it worth the cash? Are there really any other DS games out there that are good enough to make the investment? No. I can't speak for Scribblenauts, but generally there are a few good games for DS (most of them are crap though or just bad rehashes of retro games), bu...

RE: smar: :roll: Obvious troll is obvious.

RE: this comic: Normally I find memes to be detestable and unfunny, but this was a clever use of them.
I laughed out loud while at the same time thinking "oh god, I'm a horrible person for getting that."
Ditto for the alt-text.

Re: "RBA" discussion

I liked the song before the stupid meme, but now I can't listen to it without thinking of 4chan.
This comic just reminded me all over again. :|

Re: "xkcd Loves the Discovery Channel" discussion

Re: The statement about Taft in the comic Is the story of Sailor Taft close enough..? An excerpt: Taft was not resting inside his bed or working late in his office. No, he chose to stay awake that night, standing proudly on the roof of the White House. This vantage point allowed him to survey the en...

Oddly enough, I seem to be one of the few who wasn't all that sad about Aeris' death. Sure, the first time I'd played the game was one of my first times playing an RPG (the first time was coincidentally the first game of the series, but I was kind of less than ten years old at the time and thus had ...

Best pickup line ever: "If I asked you to sleep with me, would the answer be the same as the answer to this question?" Think about it... Ah, but couldn't they respond with "You'll have to ask me to find out" or something to that effect? And a coworker of mine was using a bad pic...

As was the case with many others, this one hit home for me quite a bit. Actually, I used to engage in quite a bit of spontaneity in my life, up until about a week and a half ago, when a close friend of mine left for New York until August (...and I'm transferring from my local community college to a ...

Am I the only one here who this doesn't apply to? Perhaps it's the fact that I've taken apart and put back together (almost!) every computer that I've owned at one time or another, but whenever I see something acting up like this I blame it on "lame drive manufacturers" or "a badly-pr...

I'm sorta glad I didn't get a DS. Its just not the same without catridges - GBA FTW! The DS uses cartridges. They are about the same size as a Secure Digital memory card (think digital camera storage media). The small size leads me to fear that I will lose a game or two, but it has yet to happen af...

Introductification

Hi there. I go by the name "SoNick." I've gone through several derivatives of the name throughout the years, such as "SoNick Belmont" (a reference to the main characters of the Castlevania series of video games), "SoNick Edgeworth" (a reference to the titular character'...
