Good topic by the way.
I now hate you... If you had came back one day sooner, my thread could have been infinitely more epic.
...one day sooner....
I guess I could still add some epic topping if I find the topic interesting enough. I'll check it out.
The thread would have been a lot more interesting if the 20% who voted "yes" (i.e. supported the baker) actually made their voices heard.
If I could have convinced you to edit your post....it would have been epic.
So glad you're back!
I miss your Conker love. :(
In any case, we seem to be approaching much more interesting times compared to earlier this year. Which means that my... Conker love should be more apparent here in the upcoming months.
Nice of you to stop by, by the way! Always nice with a pleasant surprise when you log in for the first time in months =)
(It may seem highly unlikely, but the reason I signed in just now was to make a post. I had no idea there was any wall activity o.O)
Also, speaking of Conker, if you want to send me an updated top 50 list of your favorite games, I'd love to include it in this year's edition! No worries either way though, just letting you know. Henshin a gogo baby!
Hey, where have you gone??
I severely lost interest in the site for a few reasons; number one being that I don't care much about sales. Overall negativity surrounding pretty much everything discussed here is a close second, while the loss of several high quality regulars (combined with a few new somewhat... awful regulars) made visiting the site less and less worthwhile.
However, with some of them returning (D21 in particular) and more interesting times games-wise I have found myself lurking the site once again. Now resulting in me logging in for the first time for very long, and finding that my wall has some activity.
Nice to see you're still here, by the way! And thanks for stopping by =)
predictions are up for pokemon x/y!
First day sale vs A week of Sales!
Another point to consider is that X/Y will release much loser to the holidays compared to Diamond/Pearl. Which means that a lot more people will be patient enough to receive the game as a Christmas gift rather than buying it right away.
And, of course, the 3DS sales in the west compared to the DS.
I wrote this with you in mind: http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=165910&page=1#2
Same can be said about anything relating to dating.
Can't believe I have to spell it out for you.
Seriously, do you also ignore the medicine of today and rely on cures that were introduced in the B.C.?
If a person is deemed mentally challenged to the point where they cannot give consent on their own then yes, they should not date random people without a supervisor/caretaker making sure that the person is safe. These people are still in need of a parent figure in their lives.
Still, I fail to see how this argument of yours is supposed to support your point. Gaymarriage =/= child marriage on all levels. Suggesting that there is or will be a link between the two is disrespectful to all homosexuals, and heterosexuals who support their cause.
The argument about medicine is really a fallacy of equivocation. Because one is under social science while the other is biology/chemistry . They are not interchangeable. They are different fields of research and handle differently. One is based historical patterns of family/society structure the other is based the research of physical experiments based on chemistry or biology. My argument is one from the structure of societies ,they are societies were marrying young 12-13 is common and have perfectly stable societies for years centuries. You have to prove that based on history, that having societies with this type of marrage has had strong negative effects. But the problem is... you can't almost every society did this has reported no problems. History has shown if you make something illegal than it will psychology effect the society and make them more aggressive to get what they want(I.e drugs,sex,etc) I posted this on the forum it had a link to expert in the field basically confirming that with pedophiles. A some of them abuse child because they have a strong desire to have sex with them and they are banned form it ,so they get desperate. Try going on a island with a girl for a year by yourself and never have sex, you will start to have thoughts to rape even if you never do it. The body does this to tell you need to reproduce. Same thing happens in prison when straight men rape other men. They were never gay before but because of the psychological stress and body strong desire it changes them.
I suggest you read into sociobiological theories of rape and history of marriage stucture. You will get a better understanding of human psychology and how things change concerning young marriage.
Moving on.There are states were you if don't have the brain of a 12-13 and you still can get married. There are people who lose all memories and have to restart. Still can marry. My mother boyfriend has the brain of a fourth grader because of a beating. I can give you numerous more examples. The age of consent is a natural defense because people taught that it was never right, by parents. And need sometype of justication argument just like poor anti-gay arguments.
What I was basically arguing everything you are saying is no different from the irrational arguments about gay marriage. Like when our grandparents were told homosexuals is a mental disease. Or that gays are abused children or couldn't get a woman. You are just repeating what you were told and not the actual facts. I can't see the difference from you and that person. Tell me,what is the difference? History proves otherwise and the knowledge in the brain never matter before. I didn't even get to argue that that there are sometimes more mature 13 years than adults. Or that adults are sometimes dumber than 13 year olds. Or how you can measure enough knowledge or growth and apply it fairly to everyone with being ageist.
I think my point was proven when you said that it was disrespectful to homosexual and heterosexual because the use of disrespect is a sign of disgust which means the main problem is one from a personal standpoint. Not a logical one. One should not feel disrespected by something like this.
Anyway sorry for long reply lol. Just having a fun conversation. Thank you.
Another difference now is that happiness and consent in taken into consideration. Marriages where girls at ~13 years of age were involved were pretty much always arranged by consensual relatives, and whether the girl wanted it did not matter. Just because they "could" become wives during their childhood that doesn't mean they should.
And yes, of course there are cases where younger teens appear to be more clever than adults. But fact remains that the opposite is the norm, and that measurement of intelligence is not perfected. As such, the most logical (and less costly) solution is to set a marriage limit where the person is expected to have a sufficiently developed brain to give consent.
"There are states were you if don't have the brain of a 12-13 and you still can get married. There are people who lose all memories and have to restart. Still can marry."
Of course there are. People find ways (and accidentally slip into ways) of bypassing rules and laws every day - often leading to a tough call for the authorities to make.
"History has shown if you make something illegal than it will psychology effect the society and make them more aggressive to get what they want(I.e drugs,sex,etc) I posted this on the forum it had a link to expert in the field basically confirming that with pedophiles. A some of them abuse child because they have a strong desire to have sex with them and they are banned form it ,so they get desperate."
Ah, so you are saying that by making pedophilia legal we will have less pedophiles? Even though this may very well be true, what message would making pedophilia legal send to the victims that are still affected? Should they just take the abuse repeatedly for the greater good?
I think not. As an example, I'd rather have the police chase down ten murderers at a time than let two murderers kill people while everyone acts as if such behavior should be tolerated.
Dig the new Avatar!
Took me a long while to find a more visually appealing avatar than my last one, but imo I finally made it. :-)
no master chief avatr?
But yeah, I found this piece of gold and decided that it was time for a change. So I edited in the "1", cropped the sides and added some space above his head until I was satisfied with the result.
Nice signature, by the way! :D
hey, Mario Kart Tournys are coming back>>> http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/thread.php?id=164901
Post there if your in(tag it)! This time there wont be eliminations but instead higher places will get more coins! (depending on how many racers per bracket)! Hope you join in
First Races will begin This Sunday 5:00pm Eastern Time! Last thing Bracket 1 will be open anytime for regular races so i'll let every1 else kno to post there time to time ok.
Hopefully many people will join. NintendoPie was on the fence last time, so without eliminations I'm sure that he can be convinced, for one.
The point system seems kind of strange though how one higher position gives you either one or two coins more than the previous player. A general consensus is (for whatever reason) that the higher you are ranked, the more coins you gain per position increase. For example, the Mario Kart DS GP points distribution is:
1st - 10p
2nd - 8p
3rd - 6p
4th - 4p
5th - 3p
6th - 2p
7th - 1p
8th - 0p
And in four player races:
1st - 10p
2nd - 7p
3rd - 5p
4th - 3p
So as you can see, the points gaps between each position tend to be greater the higher you are ranked. This is even more apparent in games like F-Zero and Formula 1.
Still, I won't tell you how to run your show. This is kind of nitpicking on my part, and you are the one in charge of the coins' value. So you should know best what to do =)
Your system is fair on all accounts, it's just my OCD senses that are expressing a minor concern :P
But yeah, again, have it your way.
Hey man, my Nintendo ID is Veknoid_Outcast. We should be friends on Wii U! We should still together, us Wii U owners. All 34 of us :P
Nintendo Direct in 50 minutes! You watching?
Hoping for many surprises to be shown. Some people may need to be reassured that Mario Kart and 3D Mario is coming to the system, but not me :P Though of course it will be nice to get a glimpse of what may become some of this generations defining titles, as I said in that other thread.
You expecting/hoping for a certain IP to be shown?
How about you? Maybe a particular high-speed futuristic racer?
But yeah, Metroid Prime 2 remains one of my favorite games of all time (sadly never played through the first one), so if they can make a sequel in that same vein that would be awesome. I have only tried out Star Fox 64 on an emulator, and must admit that it wasn't very enjoyable. Not so much boring though as it was annoyingly repetitive. Maybe I didn't spend enough time with it or something, I dunno.
Star Fox Adventure is a different story though: Have barely touched the game in eight years and yet I keep getting songs and different sequences stuck in my mind. True definition of a memorable experience. Even if it's basically a Zelda clone :P So I'd definitely be very glad if they announced a similar Star Fox entry.
And yes, a new IP by Retro sounds extremely promising. One TPS/FPS similar to Jet Force Gemini, perhaps? Supposedly it will be a "crowning achievement" for one of the former Naughty Dog developers, as I'm sure you've heard, so whatever this is it surely can't go wrong.
You think this F-Zero tweet is for real?
Still, most things seem to indicate that this is legitimate, so I must say 'yes'. And yes, I do believe that he is talking about F-Zero rather than Fast Racing League. Otherwise he would just set people up for disappointment with that tweet.
Can't wait for further info on this!
Give it up, THE1. I know you are talking about me in the conversation below... *troll face*
But You? Nooo.... You obviously remain our pride and glory! Now, don't let tbone51 try to convince you otherwise!
