  1. I agree with your general premise GC...porn is to good...its easily accessible and free. But the way people use porn is where it may differ. Statistics say something like 70% of men aged 18-34 view porno regularly, and we know what they're using it for. Close to 90% whack off with porn or without. To that end, I just see it as a means to help in that process. Does everyone need porn to do it? No...but it sure can help. How much of that percentage use porn for those means in exclusion to going out and getting the real thing? Don't know. It's probably a much smaller percentage. My point being that...while a majority of men do watch some variety of porn, a sizable chunk includes those who are married, in relationships etc. What porn has done is warped some men's expectations of what sex and intimacy mean. If you started out as a young teen watching porn, and continued to do so...its going to have an affect on how you see women, relate to them etc. Is it going to be totally ruinous to having a healthy relationship? Not necessarily...it must just might be one more hurdle to overcome. Sort of like body issues that young women have and the conflicting messages society throws at them. Some overcome...some don't. I disagree. Women have been becoming more, and more, independent from relying on partners/mates to secure financial, and familial, stability. With women (in 1st world countries) securing higher, and higher, paychecks, and on average getting better college educations, they're now putting themselves in sociologically unique positions where they can go for pure physical relationships. A sexual liberation of sorts that will continue to grow until more areas around the world are somewhat neutral/equal concerning financial status availability across sexes. I understood Em's point a different way. All your points about the status of women in 1st world countries are spot on. Many women don't need men for financial support. In the U.S., women have surpassed men in college enrollment, graduation rate, and make up a larger chunk earning post secondary degrees. Not only have women caught up and passed us...but men are actually doing worse...and that's the double whammy. So what you now have is a growing population of educated, financially independent women looking for a mate with similar qualities. But the pool of men they have to choose from is shrinking. The eligible men are getting scarce. This benefits (or can be taken advantage of by) men because they can be more choosy....or sleep around more because if they are a "catch", the odds favor them. For every 1 guy, there are 2-3 girls...the gals come off on the worse end of the stats. If you talk about minorities, its even more bleak.
  2. There is one solution that hasn't been suggested by British officials to route the hoodlums rioting on the streets. They could import the biggest and badest bulls from Spain. When mob violence springs up, they can set the bulls loose to gore and trample these thugs into civil obediance. The icing on the cake is that Spain can charge a premium for the bulls, which will help them in their debt crisis.
  3. Last Thursday, police shot and killed a 29 year-old man. It set off the tinderbox so to speak.
  4. Thunderrrrr! Thunderrr!.....I mean Forum Attack!! Hoooooooo!!!. Sturmvogel attacks GameCop with an Atomic Bomb (999 STR) and takes off 99!!

Leader of 1Emu Jihad IQ_132 Al Sader: 40 suicides Reading the suicide thread in Forum Attack had me laughing my ass off. Those were the days...
  5. I've been following the events in Egypt since 11am Eastern standard in the U.S. CNN has had constant coverage, with their foreign correspondents providing grainy video and sporadic coverage of the protest, despite journalists being attacked by police forces. This in addition to Internet and phone services being blocked. Every program on CNN, from late morning till present time has had continuous coverage, airing a press conferences by Secretary Clinton on the events, Mubarak's press statement, and Obama's press conference. I'm not sure what channel you're watching Elazul...I know it's day 4 into the protest, and maybe early coverage was lacking, CNN at least is on top of things.
  6. That's some really creepy shit Salor....I'm surprised you didn't unravel this much sooner. I think almost anyone is susceptible to this kind of deception, but its hard to imagine someone keeping up a deception like this for so long. I'd confront this person, let them know you don't like being toyed with and deceived about who they are and just move on. If you wanted to take it a step further (this may happen anyhow as you unravel/sort out identities), you may want to tell common friends/acquaintances of what this person is doing. Probably not a no brainer here, but I tend to only deal with people I acutally know or have at least met in person. Not saying you should limit yourself, but unfortunately there are people who for whatever reason are lacking something, or don't like themselves in real life. So they manufacture themselves an online life. It's pretty sad....
  7. In honor of the memory of the England that once was, I will watch my Blu-ray copy of V for Vendetta. While I'm watching it, I will remark how an actual forceful mass protest against the crooks who rule over your punny island nation won't happen like it does in Vendetta. No matter how you feel about your country Em...just remember this... Strength through Unity, Unity through Faith...............ENGLAND PREVAILS!
  8. Even if the charge of sexual molestation is dismissed or found to be baseless, he will be labeled a "rapist" or some other similar term by those attemping to malign/thwart him and what his group does. It's character assassination on a grand scale. What's really troubling is the kind of stuff politicians and other U.S. officials are saying about Wikileaks; we're crossing into dangerous territory in terms of censorship and freedoms being trampled upon. I think our govt in its words and response have totally bungled everything. We're beginning to peer over that cliff that our good friend George Orwell warned us about. That is..unless we haven't jumped off the cliff already.
  9. Ah well....trip went well. My pals and I were taking the D.C. Metro back to our hotel room, when a sort of scuffle broke out. I was too mesmerized/shocked by what was happening to start filming it with my phone, but I did get some of it. Basically, this huge fucking white dude with his face painted like The Crow just stands up and begins shoving this young black dude out of the train. He gets behind him and starts dragging him out. The black dude grabs onto a metal hand bar inside the shuttle, meanwhile "The Crow" is yanking him hard. He holds on with all his might but The Crow tugs him off onto the station platform. I whip out my camera then. Its through the glass, but you can clearly see them scuffling after a few seconds, with the black dude shouting "lets go, lets go". He may have been drunk as well. The Crow is bearhugging him while the dude is sign languaging....fuck if I know. See for yourselves.
  10. That is a nice watch, albeit expensive as hell. Like you, for me function is more important than form. So if I could get a watch that LOOKED like that, for much less, well... I don't wear a watch at the moment, but I'll probaby buy something at some point. I usually have my cell phone with me, but don't always carry it on me when at work. If you're in an office environment, there's usually no shortage of time displays, from computers to wall clocks etc. It's a little quicker to pop your wrist up and look at the time. No buttons to push like a phone, and it's just nice to have a good looking watch on the wrist.
  11. I played the demo for Fist of the North Star: Ken's Rage (PS3 version). The vocalization and design of the characters from the anime/manga series is spot on. If you're a fan of the series, its well worth checking out. You get to play as Kenshiro (obviously) as well as Rei, who is just as kickass to play with. More characters will be playable in the full game. The only gripe I had was that there is no real way to target individual enemies. It play similar to the Dynasty Warriors franchise (its made by the same ppl), but having not played that series I dunno if it had a targeting feature either.
  12. Jon Stewart's "Rally to Restore Sanity" vs Stephen Colbert's "Rally to Keep Fear Alive" Will anyone else be in attendance? I will be going with some friends. I'm also planning on wearing some sort of costume, seeing as its practically halloween.
  13. Congrats on getting a job, however long you end up staying etc. Having a job in almost all situations is better than nothing. With the economy we're in, I'm thankful I have a job. At the very least, it gives you income (super important!) and some breathing room to buy you time to line up a better job...if you so seek it. As you said already Will, you have to do what it takes, all the while enjoying the perks.
  14. I saw Social Network on Friday. I went in with low expectations but was BLOWN away. The performances in the movie are top notch. I never planned on seeing it, but tagged along with some friends.
  15. He is an irreplacable icon!! CNN what have you done!! Whose gonna be to there translate Spanish for us? Ahahha....I don't watch CNN much but I won't miss this guy. He always came off as ass and seemed to try TOO hard. As to why he was fired? Let's just say that during a radio program, he called Jon Stewart a *gasp* bigot and railed on those guys who control everything, the sworn enemies of Mel Gibson. Yep you guessed it. THE JEWS.
  16. After reading all the shenanigans Sony has been up too, it seems they are making the problem worse with every paranoia laden update. I ran across this cartoon while checking out Slashdot that exemplifies Sony's actions.... Critical Mass #34
  17. money people troll on tv, the viewers eat it up and rage or whatever, and they sit through the ads Obviouly...its a slow news cycle. It's not like the American electorate can be any more polarized than it already is...that's what it seems the media is really intereseted in. Nothing new of course. Take unimportant story/person/event, report on it, create a controversy, rake profits. It's a similar forumula that Faux News uses. I can't knock them for making money (they are a business, albeit a news organization with an agenda is a faux news org.). They truly do a disservice to this country. They only good thing to get out of it is the fun we can make of them. Which segways into the shenanigans that are to be unleashed by John Stewart and Steven Colbert. I'm thinking of going to their DC Memorial rally.
  18. There is no god only Zool! Will research reference... Let me narrow it down for ya. Go rent the first Ghostbusters.... As for this whole burning a koran idiocy, maybe this has been said already ( I skimmed the topic), but why are media outlets giving this idiot attention? It's just like with the Westboro Baptist cult. Obviously when word got out to the "Muslim world" of what this guy planned to do, FAUX News would rumage through its old clips of certain peoples in the Middle East dancing in the street burning the U.S. flag, running it on a constant loop whilst proclaiming that they hate us because of our freedom...yeah, uh huh. I doesn't take much to incite people, especially the yahoo's in the Arab world.
  19. A lot of "hoarders" seem to have developed this problem after something traumatic happened, or that combined with some mental decline. It doesn't help that we live in material excess (in the U.S. that is), thus making the facilitation of harding all the more debilitating.
  20. You should check out Fist of the North Star aka Hokuto no Ken. Some of the more higher end techniques are superhuman, but its a classic.
  21. I asked for help, not spam. One man's spam is another man's truth.
  22. You're using an emu with no gamepad plugin support. Chankast 4 eva.
  23. I don't like my peers, and I conceive of plans to make their lives miserable every day.
  24. I actually read that as "how to get the set to work with...." In that case, Olaf you should know better!
