MORAL QUESTION

This test only has one question, but it's a very  important one. By giving an honest answer, you will discover where you stand  morally. The test features an unlikely, completely fictional situation in which  you will have to make a decision.

Remember that your answer needs to be  honest, yet spontaneous. Please scroll down slowly and give due consideration to each line.



THE  SITUATION

You are in Florida, Miami to be specific. There is chaos all  around you caused by a hurricane with severe flooding. This is a flood of  biblical proportions. You are a photojournalist working for a major newspaper, and you're caught in the middle of this epic disaster.  The situation is nearly hopeless. You're trying to shoot career-making photos. There are houses and people swirling  around you, some disappearing under the water.  Nature is unleashing all  of its destructive fury.



THE  TEST

Suddenly you see a man in the water. He is fighting for his life, trying not to be taken down with the debris. You move closer. Somehow the man looks familiar. You suddenly realize who it is. It's Bill Clinton!  At  the same time you notice that the raging waters are about to take him under  forever. You have two options--you can save the life of Bill Clinton, or you can shoot a dramatic Pulitzer Prize-winning photo, documenting the death of one of the world's most powerful  politicians.




THE  QUESTION

Here's the question, and please give an honest answer:

Would you select high contrast color film, or would you go with the classic simplicity of black and white

I would defineatly go with the black and white.  It makes you focus on your subject without being destracted by the intern under him that he's using as a floatation device.  And you can clearly make out the lines of terror as he screams that it's not fair he won't be alive to see the one world government he helped to build.  Then he screams out to Molec for help and how he wishes he was at the Bohemian Grove where he could have all the gay prostitutes he wants...without going back to his "wife".

It looks like the good ol' boys at the American Nazi Party were stirring up trouble in Toledo this weekend.  When will these people just give up and die?

Neighbors: Neo-Nazis Had No Right to March

By JOHN SEEWER, Associated Press Writer Sun Oct 16, 6:01 PM ET

TOLEDO, Ohio - In the days leading up to a white supremacist march, ministers pleaded with residents to stay calm and community leaders organized peace rallies. Authorities even delayed releasing the route so protesters wouldn't know where the group planned to march.

It wasn't enough to stop an angry mob that included gang members from looting and burning a neighborhood bar, smashing the windows of a gas station and hurling rocks and bottles at police on Saturday. Twelve officers were injured, one suffering a concussion when a brick flew through her cruiser window.

In all, 114 people were arrested on charges including assault, vandalism, failure to disperse and overnight curfew violations.

"We knew during the preparation that it was going to be a tremendous challenge," Police Chief Mike Navarre said Sunday. "Anyone who would accuse us of being underprepared I would take exception with that."

Much of the anger boiled over because people were upset that city leaders were willing to allow the supremacists to walk through the neighborhood and shout insults, residents and authorities said.

"You can't allow people to come challenge a whole city and not think they weren't going to strike back," said Kenneth Allen, 47, who watched the violence begin near his home.

Authorities said there was little they could do to stop the group, because they did not apply for a parade permit and instead planned to walk along sidewalks.

"They do have a right to walk on the Toledo sidewalks," said Mayor Jack Ford, who at one point confronted leaders of the mob and tried to settle them down.

A gang member in a mask threatened to shoot him, and others cursed him for allowing the march, the mayor said. He said he didn't know if the man who threatened him was actually armed, but he blamed gangs for much of the violence. The march had been called off because of the crowds, and the white supremacists had left.

If the Nazi group tries to come back, Ford said he would seek a court order to stop them.

Navarre said the riots escalated because members of the National Socialist Movement took their protest to the neighborhood, which is predominantly black, instead of a neutral place. "If this march had occurred in downtown Toledo, we wouldn't have had the unrest," he said.

The neo-Nazi group, known as "America's Nazi Party," said they came to the city because of a dispute between neighbors, one white and the other black.

Police began receiving word midweek from officers on the street that gangs were going to descend on the neighborhood in protest, the police chief said. The disturbances were confined to a 1-square-mile area, but the crowd swelled to about 600 people, overwhelming police.

The crowds were eventually dispersed by police in riot gear after about four hours, and the mayor declared a state of emergency that remained in effect through the weekend.

About 200 officers patrolled the neighborhood overnight after the riot, Navarre said. Police reported no problems Sunday, but an 8 p.m. curfew was in effect for a second night.

Neighbors were divided about the city allowing the march.

"They don't have the right to bring hate to my front yard," said Terrance Anderson, who lives near a bar that was destroyed.

Other neighbors said the group had a right to have their say. "Too bad the people couldn't ignore them," said Dee Huntley.

Republicans and Democrats both suck...

This two party thing blows. Why do I have to choose one or the other? Ill just take things that both have, and some that neither have and call them my own, thank you very much. I dont have to follow some cookie cutter way of politics, when has that gotten anything done.

Here are my views on politics:

Bush is a freaking Nazi. Enough said. I dont know what hes got planned for the rest of his time in office, but its got me wishing I had a bomb shelter constructed. We are so overdue for another "terrorist attack" its not even funny.

I dont like abortion at all but our government does not have the right to push religous views on women's bodies. Third trimester abortions are dangerous, so I dont think those should be allowed. 

The government should be seperate from the church. This is not the middle ages or something; we are not run by a religous body. I know those that founded this country had religious beliefs, but they did not intend those beliefs to run this country. Its that very thing that they were running from in the first place.

Gay marriage, again... whatever. If they want to do it, go ahead, who are we to judge. I'm morally against it and would not like to see it at all, but hey, thats just me. Marriage in this country is more legality and tax breaks anyway, we long ago abandoned the sanctity of it.

Gun control... stupid idea. The 2nd amendment was made so citizens could protect themselves against their OWN government. Remove the guns from the people and you have a situation where people are left helpless. Think Hitler and other dictators who disarmed their countries before gaining total power.  You might think that there wont be a time where we are going to have to revolt against the US government, but just wait a few years.

Drugs. Legalize em. who cares. The whole reason there is such a huge problem in this country is the fact that they are taboo and hard to get. Legalize the less dangerous ones and get rid of some of that drug problem. Of course it will prolly make some more potheads, but then again who knows if it would be "cool" anymore if everyone could get access to it. I really dont know enough about the issue, so thats just a loose viewpoint.

I am a Christian, Jesus is my Lord and Savior. Evolution is a made up tale, the Creation is far easier to explain scientifically that the bull that scientists spew out in their elitist journals. 

These are my beliefs, take em or leave em

Actually, Democrats suck and Republicans blow.  There's a fine distinction between the two.

On a serious note, though, I agree wholeheartedly.  As I've argued before, the entire concept of a party affiliations is morally bankrupt.  Judges are barred from listing a party affiliation because it could jeapordize their judicial impartiality.  Aren't politicians supposed to be impartial?  Aren't they supposed to represent their constituents without thought to their personal desires?

We've gone from a system of electing a person most likely to represent us to electing a person most like us that will represent themselves.

Right.  The Constitutional Party is the only group that even comes close to representing a majority of my beliefs, but even they're out in left field on some issues and they don't stand a chance of ever getting a major candidate elected.

You hit that one on the nail.  We haven't done a single thing since 9/11 that has made us even the slightest bit safer.  There is nothing stopping a foreign terrorist from sailing to Mexico with a packload of nastiness strapped to his back and crossing the porous US-Mexico border.  They could be coming our way with a boatload of malicious intent and we'd never even see it coming.


(Abortion comments separated into another post for detailed berating.)



MediaMaster wrote on Oct 17th, 2005 at 3:43pm:

I agree with this to some degree.  God said...

Matthew 22:20 - And he saith unto them, Whose is this image and superscription?
Matthew 22:21 - They say unto him, Caesar's. Then saith he unto them, "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's, and unto God the things that are God's."


Christ's churches are not intended to run the government.  However, that does not absolve governmental figures from their obligations before God, nor does it give a government an excuse to be morally bankrupt.  The Bible has several examples of Godly nations.

Ultimately, there is no power on earth that will run completely parallel to God's word. Even the haughty ideals of a constitutional America are going to go adrift somewhere.  As such, we have a choice to make.  Do we put God first, or America first?



MediaMaster wrote on Oct 17th, 2005 at 3:43pm:
Gay marriage, again... whatever. If they want to do it, go ahead, who are we to judge.


It's not a question of allowing gay marriage, it's a question of recognizing gay marriage.  If the vast majority of constituents in a state wouldn't personally recognize the marriage, why should the state defy its citizens and offer that very same recognition?



MediaMaster wrote on Oct 17th, 2005 at 3:43pm:

Can I get an amen?  Truer words have never been spoken!



MediaMaster wrote on Oct 17th, 2005 at 3:43pm:

You summed that up pretty well, and everyone knows what I think about the subject, so there isn't much I can add to that.  Good stuff, Briney.



MediaMaster wrote on Oct 17th, 2005 at 3:43pm:
Drugs. Legalize em. who cares.


Up until a few months ago, I used to believe the same thing.  My rationalization was, "Hey, it's your body, do what you want."  Then I read "Under the Overpass," an amazing book about a young Christian that spent six months living the "homeless life" so he could gain a better understanding about exactly what these people needed.

One thing he continuously pointed out was the total domination of drugs in the lives of homeless people all over the country.  I'm not talking about marijuana, either.

You see, we'll end up paying for rampant drug use one way or the other.  We can either keep it illegal and pay insane amounts of cash enforcing a bunch of unenforceable laws, or we can eliminate the laws and pay insane amounts of cash for rehabilitation, welfare, unemployment, medical benefits, and other social costs.

My fix?  Legalize drugs, but make users register.  From that date forward, the user is no longer eligible for any government benefits, including welfare, medicare, medicaid, or any social security above and beyond what they paid in.

Problem solved, everyone is happy.

Absolute nonsense.  Since when was defending against the premeditated, unsubstantiated, cold-blooded murder of a defenseless child considered a "religious view?"  All law is based on somebody's sense of morality.  Without ethics or a common definition of decency, there would be no law.  Anyone who fails to see abortion as immoral, unethical, and indecent is (at best) uneducated about the issue and (at worst) seriously depraved.

To illustrate a point, let me introduce you to a friend of mine.  Her name is Kati, and we share the same birthdate.



Like me, Kati was adopted.  Like me, her mother chose to carry her to term and place her for adoption instead of killing her.  I met Kati about five years ago while trying to find my birthsiblings and we became fast friends.  Kati is a wonderful girl and I am eternally thankful for her support through some very rough times.

Every time I hear someone advocate abortion or somehow suggest that it is a "woman's right," a hundred faces pop into my head and hers is foremost.  You see, when you suggest that abortion is a "woman's right," you suggest that eliminating Kati is acceptable.  You suggest that ending her life before she even took her first breath is somehow noble.  You suggest that Kati was a mistake and that killing her is an appropriate solution to that mistake.

On behalf of "mistakes" everywhere, I humbly disagree.

Could you tell Kati to her face that abortion is a woman's right?  I certainly hope not.



Quote:
Third trimester abortions are dangerous, so I dont think those should be allowed.


Dangerous for who?  The mother?  I guarantee it's dangerous for the baby!  What makes the mother's life any more sacrosanct than that of her child?

Besides, once you start playing the "date" game, you realize how futile it is.  Most people can't pinpoint the conception of their child on a calendar, so setting a specific date in stone for the beginning of the third trimester would be impossible.

It's pointless anyway.  If a doctor is willing to perform an abortion, I doubt fudging a date on a medical form would be ethically troubling.

You mentioned banning third-trimester abortions because of potential physical complications, but what about the psychological trauma suffered by women that abort their children?  Post-Abortive Syndrome is a very real and very common ailment suffered by women that kill their children, and I honestly don't know how such a thing could be unexpected.

Ban it.  Make it a capital offense.  Any woman having an abortion would be charged with murder, as would any so-called doctor that might be involved.  Her husband/boyfriend/whatever would be charged as an accessory if he urged her to do it.

Anybody depraved enough to murder their own child deserves to rot in the darkest jail cell on earth.

yea I admit i was becoming slightly apathetic on the subject... Many women at my school feel very strongly on the subject, and after a few debates I was thinking legislatively abortion should be allowed. But after reading that and alot of thought, If im giving in a little there, how is that any different if I support it outright. Its either you do it or not...

For those of you that are familiar with Jack Thompson, the idiot on a crusade against GTA and The Sims 2, he's Penny Arcade is laying the smack down hardcore.

Mr. Thompson said he'd donate $10,000 to charity if someone developed a game featuring the murder of various video game executives and game store clerks.  Of course, when someone did just that (by modding GTA, ironically enough) he renegged and said his challenge was "satire."

So, Penny Arcade did it for him.  They cut a check for $10,000 to the Entertainment Software Association Foundation, which I thought was a hilariously appropriate choice.

Apparently, Mr. Thompson just won't learn his lesson.  He's attempting to have Gabe and Tycho arrested over the debacle.

http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/10/18/1516223&from=rss

What an idiot.

You see, this is why only cops should have guns!  I always knew that cops had some kind of Jedi-like mastery of their weapons that mere subj... err, citizens could never hope to attain.

I'm thinking we should execute by firing squad anyone who misues a firearm.

1) It gives guns a bad name...we don't need that.  The guns didn't do anything to you  Cry
2) It would help the global elite lessen the population of Earth to 500 million (look it up on the Georgia Guidestones and in the UN charter!)
3) If we really believe in evolution then these people aren't the "fittest" so they shouldn't survive.

After stalling in Congress last year, the firearms industry protection law finally passed.  S. 397 is on its way to President Bush's desk, and I quite certain he'll sign it.

http://today.reuters.com/news/NewsArticle.aspx?type=domesticNews&storyID=2005-10...

This law is freakin' common sense.  If someone gets shot with a Colt Python during a drug deal gone wrong, how in the world is Colt responsible for that?  Colt didn't sell the gun to the drug dealer, and Colt didn't pull the trigger.

This law should end such nonsense.

This is a fantastic article about the state America is in these days.  The author gets bonus points for using the term "sheeple," which I've never seen outside of firearm/survivalist websites.  Enjoy!

Quote:
A nation of sheeple

Oct 19, 2005
by Walter E. Williams


President Bush informed the nation, during a press conference, that he might seek to use the U.S. military to quarantine parts of the nation should there be a serious outbreak of the deadly avian flu that has killed millions of chickens and 60-some people in Southeast Asia. That's the second time Bush has expressed a desire to use the military for local policing. The first was in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. The Posse Comitatus Act (18 U.S.C. 1385) generally prohibits federal military personnel and units of the U.S. National Guard under federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the U.S. Constitution or Congress.

Enacted during Reconstruction, the purpose of the Posse Comitatus Act was to severely limit the powers of the federal government to use the military for local law enforcement. Would Americans tolerate such a gigantic leap in the federalization of law enforcement? I'm guessing the answer is yes. In the name of safety, we've undergone decades of softening up to accept just about any government edict that our predecessors would have found offensive. Let's look at some of it.

The anti-smoking movement might be the beginning of the softening up process. They started out calling for reasonable actions like no-smoking sections on airplanes. Then it progressed to no smoking on airplanes altogether, then private establishments such as restaurants and businesses. Emboldened by the timidity of smokers, in some jurisdictions there are ordinances banning smoking in outdoor places such as beaches and parks. Then there are seatbelt and helmet laws that have sometimes been zealously enforced through the use of night vision goggles. On top of this, Americans accept government edicts on where your child may ride in your car. Americans sheepishly accepted all sorts of Transportation Security Administration nonsense. In the name of security, we've allowed fingernail clippers, eyeglass screwdrivers and toy soldiers to be taken from us prior to boarding a plane.

We've accepted federal intrusion in our financial privacy through the Bank Secrecy Act. Rep. Ron Paul, R-Texas, says, "More than 99.999 percent of those [who] had their privacy invaded were law-abiding citizens going about their own personal financial business." Most recently there's the U.S. Supreme Court Kelo decision, where the court held that local governments can take a private person's house and turn it over to another private person. Politicians have learned and become comfortable with the fact that today's Americans will docilely accept just about any legalized restraint on their behavior.

You say, "Hey, Williams, but it's the law!" In the late-1700s, the British Parliament enacted the Sugar Act, the Stamp Act and the Townshend Acts, and imposed other grievances that are enumerated in our Declaration of Independence. I'm happy that we didn't have today's Americans around at the time to bow before King George III and say, "It's the law." Respectful of the Posse Comitatus Act, President Bush has suggested that he'll ask Congress to amend the law to allow for the use of the U.S. military to enforce regional quarantines. Whether Congress amends the law or not, Bush has no constitutional authority to deploy military troops across the land. Why?

The U.S. Constitution's Article IV, Section 4 reads, "The United States shall guarantee to every State in this Union a Republican Form of Government, and shall protect each of them against Invasion; and on Application of the Legislature, or of the Executive (when the Legislature cannot be convened), against domestic Violence." Coupled with the Tenth Amendment, "The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people," this means short of an insurrection, the U.S. military must be invited by a state legislature or executive. Any federal law that violates these constitutional provisions is null and void and can only be enforced through fear, intimidation and brute military force.

Very nicely written article. This avian flu panic is crazy. They are just building it up to be inevitable. Its strictly a bird flu right now, it would still have to mutate to kill human beings. The panic over a breakout of the disease and the timing of the Bush ruling that puts Avian flu on par with Smallpox and other deadly diseases, is very suspicious.

If anyone has read Tom Clancy's Jack Ryan book series this is all too familiar.

Debt of Honor has a commercial jet slamming into Congress, wiping it out and leaving Jack president. The book after that, Executive Decisions, has Iran distribute a disease similiar to Ebola in the United States. Martial law is declared and everything is locked down while the US goes into Iran and kicks balls. The next book, The Bear and the Dragon, puts Russia and the US at war with China over oil. Now this will be different because it is likely that Russia would side with China in the event of a war.

Recently China has been found to have understated its defense budget by about 65 billion dollars. They are building up their forces to fight a conflict bigger than Taiwan. A couple months ago China's Defense Minister gave a rousing speech to his soldiers saying that China must invade the United States by 2008 to protect its intrests and gain land. Rediculous.

Interesting tho.

From GamePolitics.com...

Quote:
Online Too Long? XP minus 100... Equipped Items Suffer 10% Damage

If you plan to be game-addicted in the People's Republic of China, you're going to do so with a gimped character.

So say new regulations that went into effect this week. Xinhua is reporting that online gamers will be penalized for playing more than three hours at a stretch. A two-hour break is mandated between gaming sessions.

Designed to combat growing fears of online game addiction, the new law targets 11 of the most popular titles, including World of Warcraft and The Legend of Mir II, but is expected to encompass all online games in the near future.

Players that exceed the legal time limit will see their characters punished by loss of experience points (XP) and in-game weapons. Stay online for five hours, and your character is reset to starter level.

"This timing mechanism can prevent young people from becoming addicted to online games," said Kou Xiaowei, the deputy director of China's Audiovisual and Internet Publication Department.

Gamers, naturally, don't care for the new regulations.

"It's absolutely a foolish decision," said 23-year old gamer Yankee Song, a World of Warcraft fan. "In the game, even a simple mission would take players three to five hours to finish and complex ones may take a whole day. After the system's implemented, players can achieve nothing in the game, and we will have no reason to play it anymore."

Another Chinese WoW devotee expressed confidence that hacks would be developed to trick in-game timers into thinking that players had logged off.

UPDATE: GP reader LitaGemini weighs in with some clarity as to what this issue may be all about: "Heard about this law at Futureplay (conference at Michigan State)... Often times the Chinese youth gather in cybercafes to play these games, and, in addition to gameplay, they're having discussion about real world political matters. The Chinese government therefore wants to limit their gameplay, which limits their cybercafe hours, which limits their political freedom. Tricky and insidious.



Only in China...

Yanno, I really couldn't blame the WoW administration if they set a flat time limit on the game for Chinese players, but to go to the extremes of programming additional features like XP loss, weapon loss, and a total character reset is just ridiculous.  I realize WoW is probably making some serious cash over in China, but to bend over backwards like that is demeaning.

Well they are a global business. They have to abide by the laws that are set down by the country that they operate in. Guess thats why ye olde Bill Gates bent over backwords to make Microsoft monitoring programs for them. Of course they are going to obey the laws, they aren't going to try to hold on to U.S. morals or laws. Can't make money that way.

The beginning of the end for easy piracy?

Quote:
"Disney is continuing their war against piracy. To their Oscar reviewers they now send out special encrypted DVDs, which can be played only on a DVD player of the "Cinea" series. From the article: "The DVD players are encoded with recipients' names, and screeners sent to those people are specifically encrypted so they can be seen only on those particular DVD players." Yet, Disney is alone on this. Sony and Universal Pictures said they won't follow that step."

Will never happen.  First...if you can read it...you can copy it.  Second you would have to give everyone that special DVD player and that means every home and computer.  Third, this is what pirates are talking about.  They want to be able to watch THEIR OWN movies in any format and do anything to them they want.  Disney is just going to be wasting money and their reviews are going to go down because people are not going to be buying those things.

The idea is to safeguard screeners for reviewers and critcs, not to safeguard the final retail product.  I think the MPAA understands that protecting retail products is impossible, but they're trying to stop DVD-quality rips from hitting the Interweb before the retail DVD hits the store shelves.

Remote Control Device 'Controls' Humans

Quote:
A special headset was placed on my cranium by my hosts during a recent demonstration at an NTT research center. It sent a very low voltage electric current from the back of my ears through my head either from left to right or right to left, depending on which way the joystick on a remote-control was moved.

I found the experience unnerving and exhausting: I sought to step straight ahead but kept careening from side to side. Those alternating currents literally threw me off.

The technology is called galvanic vestibular stimulation essentially, electricity messes with the delicate nerves inside the ear that help maintain balance.

I felt a mysterious, irresistible urge to start walking to the right whenever the researcher turned the switch to the right. I was convinced mistakenly that this was the only way to maintain my balance.

Steps up on to the soap box that is somehow there:

This will be great for our handlers when the New World Order is finally in place.  What better way to control a mass population of only 500 million people (they killed the rest with "vaccines" and other fun stuff)?  They took our rights, ney, we gave up our rights willingly.  We didn't fight to protect them.  We labled people that told us this day would come as "conspiracy nuts".  Now if I could stop from drooling and laugh I would.  They kept putting us into prison, kept making up laws that were grosely harsh.  They incarcerated the blacks, the the hispanics, then the poor, then the white middle class.  Now the elite sip expensive Don Perion from skulls that were used in the Cremation of Care to their Caninite god, Moleck, at the Bomehmian Grove.  Now they control our actions.  Thought crimes run rampant.  Children turn in their parents, neighbors turn in their neighbors, the family unit is just a distant memory.  Now they control our actions.  History is never wrong for these controllers.  There's a small resistantce of some group of people that want to take down our new god, the Supreme High Commander of Earth.  They say he's the antichrist...whatever that is.  They're just using the disappearence of all those people some time ago to promote a new religion.  Something about a one true God, and someone name Jebus...I think.  It doesn't matter they will fail.  Cause I think they might succeed...The All Seeing Eye may get me.  Well fellow Global Community member...I must go to work correcting the past so that it is correct with the "truth" of the present.  Also to your question you asked me yesterday.... 2 + 2 = 5

Here's an amazing piece of poetry that really makes you want to yell "Heck yeah!"  I was never very respectful to the majority of my teachers for one reason or another, but this piece sounds like something every high school student should have to listen to before graduating.

As a warning, there is some unnecessarily harsh language.

Robert Jordan will be dead long before he ever completes his Wheel of Time series.  You like reading incomplete stories?  You lose at life.

By the way, attached below is the trailer for the animation.  It's an executable (lame!) so I zipped it up.  Enjoy!

This is a really nifty website that provides detailed histories and downloads of some neat old games.  Some of them were never released, while other might have been "missing" some details in the final retail version.

http://www.LostLevels.org

This is one of my favorite stories.  EarthBound for the Super Nintendo was one of my favorite games of all time (just below Chrono Trigger and Final Fantasy III/VI, also SNES games).  Apparently, the prequel game Mother was brought to America and completely localized, but never released.  I'm really glad to see that the original Mother is available in professionally-translate english and I'm definitely going to play it.

Speaking of old games.

Anyone have a linnk to where I can find a GOOD SNES Emulator and some ROMs?  Half the shit on the net relating to that is a bunch of crap these days and I just don't have the time to sift through it all and find the meat.

So any links would be awesome.

I'd call it sickening, but I might be accused of being racist.

Wes,

Sorry!  I was looking at my NES collection. (You can have it too if you want)

For SNES I have ZSNES (624 kb) and about 188 ROMs (163 megs)

http://www.msu.edu/~dysangco/nesgames.zip

http://www.msu.edu/~dysangco/zsnes.zip

*Wonders if this is an illegal use of my MSU web space*  Huh

Outside of the tacky name, this might just be the neatest thing I've seen.  According to the FAQ, they don't support ROM's, but I think they're lying.

That article really isn't too surprising.  The author hit it on the head when he surmised the girls were merely parroting their parents ideals.

Hopefully, they'll have a chance to go off to a decent college some day and actually learn a thing or two about the "real world."  The article was merely another piece of sensationalistic media.

Thanks for the attempt at the ROMS and such.

I managed to get the ZNES and NEStron files, however, the ROM zips you put up are corrupt.

Suck.  I'm a failure as a geek.  They worked for me.  I'll ask my friend Brian who hooked me up with them in the first place.

And, no, haven't finished it yet because there's always a flute, clarinet or violin wanting to be played, a conducting baton wanting to be waved around, and books wanting to be read.  One of my friends came to visit and he hadn't watched Advent Children so I turned it on.  We watched it twice.  After he left I did some leveling up in the North Crater.  My party is still in the 70s with Cloud in the high 80s, and none of my materia is mastered yet, so I don't feel quite ready to take on Sephiroth.

I did, however, find this:

http://faqs.ign.com/articles/657/657331p1.html

And took a good hour or so out of my practice time reading it in its entirety.  Go me.

Quote:
Despite hurricane damage to production and refinery facilities, oil companies are reporting huge profits. Exxon Mobile reports a 3rd-quarter net profit of more than 9.9 billion dollars, the largest in US corporate history and a 75% increase compared to this time last year, so does that mean we've been gouged at the pump?

You may recall paying more than $3 per gallon for regular unleaded shortly after 25% of US oil production was cut in the wake of Hurricane Katrina. John Griffin at the American Petroleum Institute says the high gas prices were supposed to make drivers make fewer stops at the pump, so we wouldn't run out of gas.

John Griffin: "Every gas station wouldn't have gasoline. People would hoard gas, like a lot of times they do, and they start filling up cans and putting it in a garage, which is a bad idea."


9.9 billion?!  That sounds moderately ridiculous to me.

Some law makers are even asking the oil companies to low prices since they've made so much money.

"Calls for New Refineries

On Tuesday House Speaker Dennis Hastert urged U.S. oil companies to invest in building more refineries and better communicate their efforts at bringing down oil and natural gas costs. It has been 30 years, he noted, since a new refinery has been built in the United States, and extra refining capacity could prevent the shortages and price spikes that follow natural disasters.

But Parry said that, although new refineries have not opened, many companies have made improvements and expansions to their existing infrastructure and refining capacity.

"Total refining capacity has been increased by 10 percent in the past decade that's the equivalent of adding seven to eight new refineries," he said.

At least one lawmaker is even demanding reimbursement for consumers. Earlier this fall, Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., proposed a temporary windfall tax on big oil companies a 50-percent excise tax on oil company profits when the price of domestic oil is above $40 per barrel. The annual revenues collected from the tax would be returned to individual taxpayers as rebates."

Sounds a little fishy to me about there hasn't been a new refinery built in 30 years.  It's like keeping the supply at the bare minimum so you have a high demand.

Also this story has some of it too http://apnews.myway.com/article/20051027/D8DGL2502.html

Talk about bias and stupidity all at once.  I guess that if you have an opposing idea to the main theory at the time you HATE science!  That's like say... I HATE AMERICA! when I say..."But isn't the Patriot Act designed to be used on mostly domestic Americans?

I'm sure we all remember when Galileo ticked off the Catholic church and they threw him in house arrest for HATING God AND science.  Well here god = time and science = whatever we want it to mean as long as we don't use commen sense enough to end the debate by allowing some theories to use God as an explination.  Even if mainstream science allowed this...you can have 70 different scientists use 70 different theories to explain one thing naturally...what's another one attempting to use God?  Is it because people are sooo scared that there might be physical/scientific proof of a Creator that they will fight to the death to stop "Fundamentalist Christian science haters" from coming in their circle?  Sounds narrow minded to be...shouldn't they be open to any "truth" *tounge in cheek*

A boy was crossing a road one day when a frog called out to him and said, "If you kiss me, I'll turn into a beautiful princess".

He bent over, picked up the frog and put it in his pocket.

The frog spoke up again and said, "If you kiss me and turn me back into a beautiful princess, I will stay with you for one week."

The boy took the frog out of his pocket, smiled at it and returned it to the pocket.

The frog then cried out, "If you kiss me an turn me back into a princess, I'll stay with you and do ANYTHING you want."

Again, the boy took the frog out, smiled at it and put it back into his pocket.

Finally, the frog asked, "What is the matter? I've told you I'm a beautiful princess, that I'll stay with you for a week and do anything that you want.  Why won't you kiss me?"

The boy said, "Look, I'm a network engineer.  I don't have time for a girlfriend, but a talking frog is cool."

For all those Floridians...

Quote:
Will full juice be back for all by . . . Easter?
DAVE BARRY

Q. When am I going to get my electricity back?

A. The latest statement from Florida Power & Light is that ``we expect to have all power in Miami-Dade, Broward and Palm Beach counties fully restored by, at the very latest, Easter.''

Q. Why is it taking so long to restore power?

A. Wilma's unexpectedly strong winds caused major damage to three of FP&L's five longest extension cords.

Q. Is my water safe to drink?

A. Your water is perfectly safe, although the South Florida Water Authority does recommend that before drinking any water or touching it with your bare hands, you should boil it ``until the worms stop moving.''

Q. How are the levees holding up?

A. We spoke to a spokesperson for the South Florida Levee Authority (SFLA), who assured us that South Florida does not have any levees, but if we did, they would definitely be in bad shape.

Q. I keep hearing that, since the traffic lights are out, I should treat a stoplight intersection as if it were a ''four-way stop.'' What does this mean?

A. It means that, when you reach the intersection, you should do what you normally do at a stop sign here in South Florida.

Q. You mean, ignore it?

A. That is the South Florida way.

Q. Where can I buy gasoline?

A. Vermont.

Q. How will the hurricanes affect the schools?

A. The school year started earlier than ever this year, smack dab in the middle of hurricane season. Incredibly, the school schedule has been severely disrupted by -- you are going to be very surprised -- hurricanes! Who could have predicted such a thing? In any event, our kids have missed a LOT of school. Many 10th-graders no longer remember the alphabet. This could really hurt our standardized-test scores. So the Broward and Miami-Dade school boards have decided to lengthen the school year by adding a new month, to be inserted between November and December. It will be called ``FCATember.''

Q. You're kidding, right?

A. I don't know any more.

Q. Why are we getting so many hurricanes lately?

A. Climate experts, after studying changes in ocean-water temperatures over the past 50 years, now believe that the recent increase in hurricane activity is being caused by a cracked mirror in the kitchen of my mother-in-law, Celia Kaufman. It cracked a few weeks ago, and since then not only have we been nailed by roughly a dozen hurricanes, but also Celia had a car accident, my brother in-law Steve hurt his back, the Dolphins offensive line has been penalized for 4,752 false starts, and President Bush, apparently without even realizing it, nominated a former Texas State Lotto executive to the U.S. Supreme Court. ''This can't all be coincidence,'' state the climate experts. ``Somebody needs to FIX THAT WOMAN'S MIRROR.''

Q. So is the mirror being fixed?

A. FEMA is working on it.

Q. So we are doomed.

A. Correct.

"Wait a minute," said one of the researchers, "Wouldn't it be a kindness if our ship's doctor were to amputate the feet so that it would be like other porpoises?"

"Not on your life," exclaimed the doctor, "That would be defeeting the porpoise."

Seal bites off woman's nose
31/10/2005 08:10 - (SA)

Tisha Steyn

George - A woman from Herold's Bay who tried to help a female seal will have to get a new nose after the seal ripped the woman's nose from her face.

Winnie Swanepoel, head of the SPCA in George, picked Elsie van Tonder's nose up on the beach and rushed it to hospital, but it could not be surgically reattached to the 49-year-old's face.

Van Tonder was bitten in the face and on the leg at about 17:00 on Saturday when she and a few other people tried to roll the young seal onto a blanket to get it back into the water.

"The seal was lying among the rocks and hissed when my mother stroked its face and head," Louise Eliis, 25, Van Tonder's daughter, said from their flat in George on Sunday.

"We thought the seal was dying and my mother suggested that we should roll her onto my one-year-old baby, Elouise's blanket and try to get her back into the water.

"She rolled the seal over, but the seal rolled back onto her back immediately. When she tried to roll the seal over again, she was bitten in the face and on the thigh.

"She bled a lot. Johan (Viviers, her mother's friend) and I helped her into my car and rushed her to George Hospital.

"The nose could not be reattached," Ellis said. "My mother will be transferred to Groote Schuur Hospital in Cape Town on Monday. She will have to undergo extensive surgery.

"We believe that it was negligent of the SPCA and CapeNature to not put up boards warning that seals could be dangerous," Ellis said. "Who is going to pay for her pain suffering and plastic surgery?"

He said government would probably carry the bulk of the cost for the reconstructive surgery. Several operations might be necessary to recover from the injury, but the patient would not have to remain in hospital all the time.

Swanepoel said she was informed on Saturday morning that there was a seal in the parking area in Herold's Bay.

"The seal jumped down from the parking area and lay on the rocks. We asked people to leave it alone."

Dirk Wessels of Marine and Coastal Management said on Sunday that the seal was probably irritated by the people's repeated attempts to get her back into the water. There are many Cape furry seals along the Southern Cape coast, he said. They live in the sea for months, but do come out on the beach from time to time to rest until they go back into the water out of their own volition.

"They do not have to eat every day because they have a thick layer of fat that they can draw on," Wessels said.

"This was an unfortunate incident and we are sorry that it happened. People should realise that seals are wild animals and can be dangerous. They should be left alone. The law is very strict and anyone who bothers marine animals or birds could be sent to prison," he said.

Wow...umm..ok...sick

Where's the FCC when you need em?  I don't know if they were trying to make suicide bombers good or if there was no point.  Also, all Isralie's are Zionists?  Pretty soon Palestine is going to run out of young men to kill themselves.  Thus ending their race.

Here is another good reason to carry a concealed weapon when you're out, and keep a gun locked and loaded (if it is safe to do so!) when you're at home.

http://www.cnn.com/2005/US/11/06/pit.bulls.ap/index.html

Three pit bulls got out of their pen and terrorized a neighborhood.  One child is in critical condition.  The police ended up shooting the dogs, since apparently none of the neighbors were armed with anything more dangerous than a baseball bat.

If that kid dies, the owner of the dogs should be tried for negligent homicide, or at least being an accessory.

Pictures of AMD's upcoming Socket F standard have been leaked.  This site is in freaky deaky Dutch, but it has pictures!

http://tweakers.net/nieuws/39753

They're going to an LGA design, where the pins are on the socket and the processor itself just has flat contacts.  It looks kinda silly if you ask me.  Besides, if I'm going to bend a pin, I'd rather bend a pin on a (cheap) processor than a motherboard.  It's a heck of a lot easier to remove, RMA, and replace a processor than it is a motherboard.

Is there a way to get QuickTime 7 without iTunes?  I really don't want that crap on my PC.  You used to be able to uncheck a box to get QuickTime 6 without iTunes, but I don't see any such option now.

I'd like to get QT7 and crack it to Pro once I get the Bobulator rebuilt (hopefully tomorrow).

Hey Briney, it looks like you get to put up with Kwame Kilpatrick for a bit longer.  I can't believe anyone actually voted for someone as blatantly corrupt as him.

I guess the saying is true, "You get the government you deserve."  Maybe this is exactly what Detroit needs to wake up and smell the coffee.

Four more years of crime, poverty, theft, nepotism, bullying and all that goes along with it.  I hope Detroit enjoys reaping what they've sown.

A new reality TV show is aiming to pull off the biggest hoax in TV history - by persuading a group of Britons that they have been blasted into space


Quote:
A giant custom-built screen positioned just outside the shuttle will, it is hoped, provide the illusion of a view of Earth from space including a hurricane over Mexico and a glimpse of the UK on one day when cloud cover parts.

The launch sound has been created by a Hollywood sound specialist while the shuttle will tip and rock in the process.


oh man, this is about the funniest thing i have read in a while. Seriously, this is hilarious. A simulated launch is a rocking back and forth? I guess theres no g-froces going on then. And the whole weightless thing prolly isnt going to happen either. Or the fact that they aren't boarding a shuttle on a launchpad. You know... this is pretty much retarded.

If anyone is fooled... My opinion of people will hit rock bottom.

The good thing about her was that she was the typical liberal feminist and she hardly agreed with anything we said...which is sometimes good on here.  I remember having to be anti-gun on the very first forum against mainly bob, just to get a good discussion goin.
