@greyelephant: not only do the people in your examples have professional medical help available at all times (and i fail to believe there would be absolutely no one present at your hotdog contest who knew CPR and/or the heimlich maneuver), people in professional sports and participating in the olympics are continually aware of the dangers of their sport(s), and some are even trained as to what to do in case of an emergency (as in lie still, don't try to move, make this signal if you can, etc.). The people running the olympics and professional sports also take things very seriously, and instead of laughing off their contestants'/players' concerns and distress like those DJs did, they have procedures in place and medics/doctors on-hand, and they would have stopped immediately and had them checked out, they would've made sure the person/people in question is/are okay before proceeding to allow them to continue on with what they were doing.

The point here is that the DJs/station higher-ups knew of the dangers inherent in this contest, they did not consult a doctor beforehand for advice even though they knew of the dangers, they did not warn the participants beforehand of the dangers of what they were about to do (nor did the woman in question sign off on a waiver as they claimed), they did not have adequate medical staff on hand to monitor the participants, they continued to encourage the participants to hold their urine in even though some of them (including the woman who died) were in distress and already complaining of symptoms of water intoxication, and they laughed off a nurse who called in to the show and warned them that their contest could turn out deadly. Had they even bothered to warn the woman and have her go to the hospital after the contest was over and she'd come in second, which would certainly have been a douchebag move in and of itself, she may have survived... but hindsight is 20/20, and now they're paying through the nose for it. If they had at the very least been warned beforehand of the dangers of water intoxication, you might have a point, but according to the complaint that was filed (and how the trial went, apparently), they were not.

From the Wii System Menu, enter your message board. Click the 'send message' icon, and it'll show you three icons, the right-most of which is your Address Book. When you click that icon, it will tell you what your own Wii's FC is so that you can share it with others. :3

Dante's already linked you to the other thread about this, but if you want to download Cave Story for your home computer and play it, no one is stopping you. Surely the creator knows too that many people have already played the free version of his game and may not end up buying the WiiWare version because they feel it will be exactly the same experience, which is their choice. No big deal. :3

@Bass X0: He seems to still be having fun with it, though, from the looks of the outtakes and blogs he posts every so often. He also uses the site now to also promote his other projects, which really aren't that bad.

mostly at home, though i've brought it out to work and to the store and stuff before. It's great because i can take it into the bathroom or be chilling out on the bed if i want instead of having to be in the living room in front of the TV to play a game. :3

@RWP: 'tis easier (and makes you look like less of a jerk) to point out a problem like that instead of just facepalm.JPGing it and hoping they figure out what was wrong with their comment eventually. :/

to the point of the topic, i think they're about on-par. I still like playing older Mario games, and I still don't like playing older Sonic ones. :3

@RWP: Edward Scissorhands had an amazing soundtrack, and i chose it not only for that, but the snow to counter Vader's fire. Seriously, both composers are high on my list, like I said before. :3

I thinks he's pretty good, but why the music so effective is because of the directing, acting, and etc. all comes together as well, to create something truly epic.

It's amazing how much better a movie is when it's got a great soundtrack composer behind its music, though. :3

@grenworthshero: It was a good point to bring up; i didn't know there was anything going on with him lifting music from other sources and putting it into his own. If he's really doing it as you say, dude, and he's not acknowledging his sources, that's not right.

@grenworthshero: this was a pretty good article on being a tester. HowStuffWorks.com also is usually full of solid info... according to both, it's networking, living near a testing center, and willingness to put up with BS that's important. Chatham's the guy on the forums you'd want to talk to about it; he's a VG tester iirc.

[And I made this because I wanted to get over the 1984 thing. I didn't mean to sound rude about it. ]

PROTIP: if you stop referring to things you've said before on the forums that you're now embarrassed by, people will not constantly be reminded of them (and completely uninvolved parties will never know the difference and won't ask or try to find on their own what the heck you're talking about). You're not being rude by bringing up other versions of Namco Museum for other platforms, and who cares why you made this thread to discuss Dig Dug? It was a decent, fairly addictive little game. :3

@RWP: i'll look into that, thanks. I wonder why they didn't put Dig Dug on the Namco Museum they released for DS... i'd love to have it for DS and be able to take it with me wherever. :/
