@SonicMaster: You're talking about Gangplank Galley, right? I just ran through that level myself to see what was going on, and sure enough, if you're not holding down the Y button, you won't be able to jump far enough to reach the second hook. With Y held down, though, I hit it just fine. You may want to get into the habit of jumping while holding Y; you'll go farther, apparently. :3

@Fuzzy: i think it's not even worth bothering if it's gonna be live-action. i mean, the first one stank, and now all those kids who saw it when they were little are grown up and would totally remember it was a terrible movie, lol... i doubt anyone would seriously give it a chance if they were to try making a new one.

@Liam: If you'd like to rehost those pictures on your own space (photobucket, imageshack, whatever) and then put them back into the post, that's fine. I edited them into links for you because I don't think GameSpot would appreciate us here on NL sapping their bandwidth with a super-image-heavy post here on our forums. I'd also suggest you make them smaller, just in case we have anyone with slow internet connections or small monitor resolutions, because they kinda distracted from all the great info you put together for us. Thanks! :3
i also took care of a few random HTML tags and some other formatting weirdness for you to make it look pretty, hope you don't mind :3

Aw man, and here I thought there was someone who has seen more than just that "I am Spartacus" part.

we had to watch the entire movie in like sixth grade for social studies/world history, lol... it was really good, but the end (after the funny 'I am Spartacus' part) was depressing. :(

admit it, feenie, you were really trying to set someone on fire in chat, only to realize you can't actually do that over the internet.
the real lesson feenie's trying to give us is that flamethrowers and laptops don't mix, y'all

When you scroll up in the chat and someone writes something the chat jumps back down. That's really annoying because that way you can't read anything at all because the chat keeps jumping down. It would be great if this would be fixed :)

i'm'a quote you and link to here in the main NL Chat thread, roops, in case it hadn't already been mentioned there. that way there's still just one nice long thread of things for Ant to go through and take care of while he's working on getting the chat up and out of beta and not multiple threads for him to sift through. :3

@everyone else: feel free to post your suggestions/comments/whatever about the NL chat in the main NL Chat thread. :3

@'Chu: ha, i hadn't seen that. that's a well-edited video, lol.

and i must say i've only ever seen that episode in syndication once. and you're right, it was definitely up there on the weird-o-meter. there's plenty of weird stuff going on in TNG, but I think the hands-down weirdest episode of TNG ever was 'Conspiracy', that one with the alien parasites taking over people's brains up in Starfleet Command and Picard having to investigate or whatever. that freaking dinner with the worms/caterpillars was so gross D:

Also if a key comes loose on your keyboard don't throw it in the air, otherwise you end up with no F11 just like me, no idea where it landed never found it.

Also, do not vacuum your laptop keyboard (without the right attachment?) to try and get the dust out as an alternative to canned air. If your experience is like mine, you will be picking your keys out of the bag/canister afterward. D:
seriously, i thought it was such an awesome idea at the time... D:

I believe the correct solution would have actually been to run back to the bedroom on the first commercial break and demand a lightning-fast quickie. You'd likely get slapped / broken up with even faster, but you'd preserve the proper balance of nerd and manliness for your tale.

This is probably the only thing i could think of that would've made that story more awesome. :3

I'd imagine a European would find it offensive to be called 'African-American' or 'Asian-American'... :3

In all seriousness, though, it is not for non-PoC individuals to decide what People of Color should or should not be called. You don't put 'white' in front of American because that's what the world already thinks of when they think of America -- an image of some kind of caucasian, whether it's one of the founding fathers, a Playboy bunny, or some Hollywood star. It is not fair to PoC to attempt to trivialize their everyday problems in this country with fluffy rose-colored-glasses-wearing BS like 'I don't see people's color, i'm colorblind' or 'why do we need to call ourselves Italian-American, Irish-American, Japanese-American, Indian-American, African-American, Egyptian-American, whatever -- we're all Americans', because that is not how the real world works and it is shameful to ignore that fact. Whether it 'makes sense' to you or not, please be respectful of people both on this forum and IRL when it comes to issues of race and call people as they prefer to be called, whether it's 'black' or 'African-American' -- if you're Caucasian, you'll never truly know the struggle of a Person of Color in this country, and don't even try to delude yourselves into thinking you will.

@Starkiller: Q went back to TNG after that... in fact, his next episode appearance was the aforementioned 'Tapestry' after DS9's 'Q-Less'. w00t for Picard-torture.

Has anyone else read Q&A? It's kinda short, and it deals with some heavy after-Nemesis stuff, but it kinda explains why Q hung around Picard so much. It was pretty good IMO. :3

and speaking of Picard-torture, I feel terrible about it, but I can't help but laugh when it comes to 'Chain of Command'... taken out of context, Picard yelling "There! Are! Four! Lights!" is pretty hilarious. It's almost on-par with "We look for things... things we need... things to make us go"... lol, 'Samaritan Snare'. Those aliens were freaking dumb. :3
