    good job in the abortion thread. its truly sickening and scary. hearing some of the responses. its good to hear a sane voice.

    Thanks. It seems there are less and less people nowadays willing to stand up against the grain and be unabashedly pro-life. I don't know if it's just that only the whackos on the forum show up to talk about abortion...but it seems there are very few here friendly to the pro-life cause.

    i also find it astonishing that most of those people were talking about how wrong it would be to abort your child if it was gay (note: i dont think people are born gay), but then are so quick to say yeah I would abort a disabled child.

    on 15 October 2012

    I've seen enough examples, both within and outside of my own family, to cause me to seriously question whether people really are born gay or not. My Aunt "switched" after being married for eight years and having two children. I know a lot of people in and outside my circle, mostly women, who go off to college and are suddenly lesbians. Then when they graduate and begin to settle down, most of them turn straight again. It's either an easy change to make, or those individuals are making a seriously poor case for all the life-long gays who claim they cannot help being gay.

    I feel like Samus and Fox should switch places in your avatar. The orange is more appropriate for Samus (Varia Suit color) and the blue is more appropriate for Fox (the sky, outer space).

    True enough. I didn't make it though, I just found it on Google when I was looking for cool pictures.

    Skyward Sword is definitely one of the most enjoyable games this generation. But as a Zelda game I would say that it's well below average. No great overworld to explore other than some tiny islands in the sky and revisiting the same areas time after time sadly made it tiresome at times. On a more personal level I've never really enjoyed motion controls, but I guess Nintendo still made a great job executing all motion control functions.



    The story is great as well, so overall I'd give it 7,5 as a Zelda game. Slightly above 9 as a game overall :)



    What's your take?

    I'd give it a 7.5 too. I was pretty disappointed with it. I think for a game took five years to make, there is precious little to show for it. I agree with your points about the lack of exploration in the overworld. I think you're right that it was one of the most enjoyable games of this generation, but that speaks more about the lack of good games this cycle, and less about how spectacular Skyward Sword is.

    Your political alarmism is ill-informed. The Chinese have problems all their own, and while America certainly needs a rethink of a few matters (namely to close off all loopholes on income taxation and restructure our security policy), it's far from terminal decline. The Chinese, meanwhile, grapple with a premature demographic crisis (not a good idea for a low income population to also be greying. The Japanese are better equipped to handle such things, not China) and a housing market that's being held together through sheer force of will

    Well, I respectfully disagree with your assessment of my "ill-informed alarmism", but that's what forums are all about, right? People discussing things from different sides of the spectrum in a civil manner?

    I would argue that you should look at the overall worldwide trends when speaking of our decline as a republic and China's meteoric rise since the 1970's. The United States owes more than $15 trillion in debt, we have an annual deficit of over $2 trillion, and our entire monetary system is based on pyramiding debt. We run a world empire of hundreds of bases in dozens of nations, and over 1% of our population is in prison, many for non-violent crimes. We run a welfare state and have hundreds of unfunded liabilities we will never, ever be able to pay for. It is impossible to calculate, but it is estimated to be over $60 trillion. Half of the country pays no income tax, and our economy hasn't generated a single new net job since the year 2000.

    Contrast that with China, who have had a rapidly booming Capitalistic economy since the 1970's. They have an enormous middle class that is soon to be larger than ours, which by the way is shrinking. Their government has serious human rights issues to overcome, but they are nevertheless in much, much better fiscal shape than we are in. The produce all of the things we buy, and so they have many of our once-prized manufacturing jobs.

    Also, I disagree that Japan is better-equipped to handle their demographics crisis. They've been in deep recession for 20+ years, and based on what I can see, they have done absolutely nothing to improve their situation.

    on 19 March 2012

    They are better-equipped because they have more per-capita income and stronger social safety nets. The Chinese system won't work well if there are more old people. China's rise is not so inevitable as you think, for there are already signs of wavering.

    on 19 March 2012

    I'll concede to your point about the aging population. There's no doubt that will most definitely pose a problem. But as far as the strong social safety nets that you are rightly point out, that is part of the problem I'm talking about. Unfunded liabilities, exorbitant cost, and not enough wealth from productive effort to be realistically able to fund it all. Social programs like that are part of the problem. Many people, not all, will be more inclined to work harder during their productive years and save money for end-of-life costs if they know there is nothing coming from the government to help them. It's a moral hazard.

    Right, but if they're saving for later then they aren't spending now, and too much savings in turn generates liquidity problems (Japan is an interesting point here again, as the Japanese have high savings rates precisely in order to pay for retirement, and it has helped snarl them at near-zero interest rates for a long time, which contributed to their currency problem because the Bank of Japan was unable to push interest rates down to help the currency due to all the savings)
