Re: Causing Trouble At School

Had a music teacher in 8th grade that didn't know how to handle us rowdy public school kids and he would sit at his desk with the paper to write you up stuck in his typewriter and henpeck his way through the form. Me and two of my friends were the ringleaders in getting the class to torment him. The most impressive incident was when we made him cry by breaking his precious typewriter as well as the overhead projector he used to show us sheet music and lyrics to the dreadful songs he wrote. One song he wrote using the words to the Pledge of Allegiance is to this day imprinted on my skull because of how oddly proud he was of it. To the point that he would play it what seemed like daily.

He quit full time teaching the year we had him, but didn't leave the school and would show up as a substitute teacher frequently after that.

Along with those same two friends I also wrote a poem, as an assignment for English class, about him that included several embellishments about him crying, being a cross dresser and accusing him of being a pedophile. It was such beautiful prose.

Here's a picture of him that I found on google:

We called him Ronald McDonald and I have no recollection why. Maybe just cuz he was a big goofy looking mofo.

@Peter Have you ever seen The Conversation? Enemy of the State references it enough that it almost seems like a sequel. Its not as fast paced or action oriented as Enemy of the State, but still a great film. If you haven't, Check it out!

In Chinese the de sound is pronounced more like "duh". Certainly not doo. I wonder where the VAs got that one from.

Re: A challenge for an internet whizz-kid

Do you have the instrumental for the song? It might be a little easier to track down and if you can get that its possible to make an a capella from the original song by inverting the phase of the instrumental in an audio program.

Here's a tutorial on how its done if you're interested:

Japan vs China: The Battle for the Desolate Islands

The dispute over the Senkaku Islands is making a lot of headlines lately. What's your opinion? Is the Chinese media using this as a false flag to create a diversion from topics of true importance to our communist friends? Do they have a legitimate claim to the territory?

The most irritating part of this whole situation to me is how its being used by a lot of people, who probably didn't know that the islands existed until recently, as an excuse to legitimize their existing hatred for the other party. Then you have people like Jackie Chan making ridiculous comments and just adding fuel to an already raging fire.

Re: BROTHAMITE BROTHAMITE! Ask the wise Brotha fools!

Brothaman, I have a possibly-sensitive question for you. Why is it that some black people both complain about racism a lot, whilst at the same time reinforcing negative racial-stereotypes with their actions?

Example: There was this chap at university who would always be complaining about racism around campus (I never witnessed any), and if he got a bad grade the tutor was "racist" (he always got bad grades, never showed up). He hated white people, and seemed convinced that we all owed him something because of slavery.

He hated me, since at the time I was living in a house full of lovely black girls, and was seeing one that he wanted. Anyway, one day I caught him in my house stealing chicken from my fridge. Not only was the chicken not his, but he didn't live in our house. I pointed out to him that he is always complaining of racism, yet by sneaking into my house and stealing our chicken (of all things!), he was in fact living up to and reinforcing a common racial stereotype; black people are thieves and love chicken. I ended up caving his little face in, I was so pissed off.

What is your view on this kind of hypocrisy among certain individuals within the black community? Was I wrong to be violent towards him? He was a self-styled 'gangsta rappa'. I must say, it felt really good to make him bleed all over his snapback cap and high tops. Good times!

If a black guy was literally stealing chicken from me it what be so funny that I would forget to be mad. That sounds like a parody they might do on Boondocks.

Re: Gaming thoughts of the day

Or could it perhaps be that Dorian is more forgiving of less than stellar controls when they are a gateway into a universe with which he is very familiar or fond of?

I thought the Lupin the Third game for PS2 was awesome even though EGM only gave it a 6 from what I remember. But that's mostly because I love Lupin the Third.

Its a licensed anime game. The vast majority of them require you to be at least partially blinded by fandom to fully enjoy.

I want to purchase and gather as many copies of a rare game that I don't give two shits about, like Panzer Dragoon, from all the people that will part with it and then destroy them one by one on camera. The look of rage on the internet's face will make the whole endeavor so worth it.

Re: who would you cast for a live action shenmue?

Fukuhara will no longer be a martial arts student, but a 40 year old hikikomori otaku boarder living at the Hazuki Dojo which hasn't been used as an actual training space in years due to the declining interest in the study of martial arts. He is played by Gekidan Hitori:

It will be the funniest thing on TV in years, but Shenmue only in name. And that's how television works kids.

On a slightly serious note Nagase Tomoya would actually be an awesome Ren.

I did you as soon as you mentioned GOW. It's a shallow combat system. Very simple and the only complexity is the QTE. GOW is basically analog and an action button. TLS is a layered RPG with layered combat. Real time strategy,stealth action and TPS elements. If you have trouble with that little spider then damn son you are in for a beating later on. :P

Re: Shenmue Collections

IMO its probably fake. Not only does it use the number 2 instead of the roman numerals, but the Japanese under it appears to say シェンムー 一章横須賀(Shenmue Chapter 1 Yokosuka). It seems like they just threw some Japanese on there to make it look cool/official.
