  1. Damn. You guys really suck at arguing the position instead of the person. No wonder the political subforum got shot down. :/ Basically, what I just saw was this: "I think this, and I did this for this reason." "You're a coward! You're dumb (implied)!" etc. "wat?" "I WIN! LOL YOU'RE DUMB" FFS. <_<
  2. Well, as far as free goes, I suggest Comodo Firewall & AVG Free.
  3. You see, this is why I love OCC! We're all good ol' boys from the grand ol' party and we couldn't give a care about anyone else!
  4. Good god, I was joking ffs. I thought the mention of zombies, massacring crowds of innocents, the Hitler reference, and neo-fascism would give it away. :s
  5. Nope, they weren't in place before Obama was president. He specifically requested miniguns so his neo-fascist regime could mow down anyone anywhere. Honestly, and I don't mean to be joking or hyperbolic at all, but Obama is Hitler reincarnated.
  6. I suppose they have these miniguns mounted so they can mow down the endless hordes of the undead, as they hobble towards the presidential motorcade through D.C. Honestly, what are they going to do with these? Oh god, there's a guy with a pistol in the crowds of people watching the motorcade! Quick, kill everyone! This seems to go against the scalpel theory Obama so often mentioned. Gunfire rains onto the unsuspecting crowd-goers as the president, listening to Don't Worry, Be Happy, zooms away.
  7. I feel similarly, but I've had loads of fun mainly because I've only played the campaign in co-op with a friend of mine. We're at the end and still haven't hit the cap, and we enjoy looking around for loot. I still want to find a terminator assault cannon and he needs some more terminator melee weapons. The game is amazing, and I'm looking forward to expansion packs. It'd be cool if they'd not only add another race's campaign, but extended the Space Marine missions as well. Of course, they'll add a couple of new races which will make me shat myself.
  8. I once shot a man in CSS just to watch him die. Then I got banned because I did this thrice before to the other hostages.
  9. Maybe not, but it's change into a truck.
  10. ^is someone I actually remember from way back when.
  11. If people can't rationally navigate the president's politics by putting their emotions beside, then they're just as ignorant as those they call ignorant. My dad did it with Bush and it pissed me off.
  12. If that 360 went RROD on me within the year, would MS still repair it? And does it come with any controllers or power cables?
  13. It would be, actually. Let's look at the wages of a burger joint employee in burgers per hour, instead of dollars per hour. Let's agree that you'll be paid about $6.75 working at a modern day fast food establishment, and take that $1.45 as what you would have been paid. Also assume that the burgers then were about $0.15 and the current equivalents would be priced at $0.99. Given the $6.75 wage and burgers at $0.99, you'd be making approximately 6.82 burgers per hour. Given the $1.45 wage and burgers at $0.15, you'd be making about 9.7 burgers per hour. That's an increase of 2.85 burgers! Of course, if you don't like 4/5s and 3/4s of burgers, then you can just multiply everything by 100. $145 in 100 hours, and 970 burgers in that time, compared to $675 in 100 hours, and 682 burgers in that time, with an increase of 285 burgers from today to the Sixties. All that says not only would you get more burgers at that wage nearly five decades ago, but it implies you'd get more bang for your buck. And for the record, I'd gladly give up all this modern crap to live in the 60s.
  14. I used a 14.4 modem. Good times.
  15. If you've honestly stuck with XP so far, like I have, I suggest just sticking around with it. There's really no reason to spend the money unless you absolutely must have DX10 and a prettier interface, which isn't that great anyway. With Christmas and student refunds coming around, I went through thinking what I should buy. A GTX 260, Q6600, or even Vista were all on my mind. I decided against them all since all my games are perfectly playable, and I don't think its worth it to spend $200+ on unnecessarily higher FPS or a slicker interface. Saving money is underrated.
  16. I'm listening to some woman on The Weather Channel. It's very exciting.
  17. If you can't find it, I'd just suggest screenshotting the upper left where the logo is, and using a lasso tool in an image editing program to get the image.
  18. That's some crazy ., man.

    Gta 4

    There are loads of tweaks you can do. I suggest following this guide- make sure you read the 'more info' section on the right. It may sound a bit funky, with the .exe and all, but it does work. And install the 180.84 beta drivers for the nVidia's GTA 4 tweaks, but be careful with these because certain revisions BSOD on some systems, so you need to keep trying different revs. There are three, so just google around for them. Also, check out this guide too. I managed to go from an unplayable FPS at 1280x960 to a very playable one at 1680x1050. It takes a bit of time but if you're into getting more FPS for free and with very little quality loss, I suggest you do all these things. Feel free to look around for other guides, because I'm sure there's more tweaking to be done.
  20. NASA doesn't have as much money as it would like precisely for the reasons you meniton, beeiilll, but I think its still important that we at least do a bit of research and exploration of space. I second the vote for net neutrality. Ask him about that, KB! See if he can win over the hearts and minds of net-goers everywhere.
  21. Don't get me started on the pledge... let's just say I'm an atheist and keep it at that. Although I will say that there are far better ways to honor our country than to just stand for and recite the pledge. Sure, it's a nice icing on the cake, but many people don't even have the cake there so doing the pledge just gives them the illusion of honoring our nation. But yeah, KB, ask him how he plans to increase international respect for the good ol' USA while he's in office.
  22. I can't find it for the $200 price tag that Newegg had it listed for anywhere else.
