Re: When It Turns 2010 are You going to Call It "Two Thousand Ten" or "Twenty Ten?"

theblackdragon

@Turbo: did I mention the millennium? I'm talking about pronunciation... even without that book already released, we'd still have been calling the year 2001 'two-thousand one' (or 'two-thousand and one' depending on the person) because the year prior had been the year 'two-thousand'. it's the natural progression of numbers (as we count them aloud), and also, i don't think anyone would even understand what i was talking about if i called it 'twenty-hundred'. o_O;

also, lol, DSi, best typo ever :3

Re: When It Turns 2010 are You going to Call It "Two Thousand Ten" or "Twenty Ten?"

theblackdragon

@Turbo: so what were we supposed to call the year 2000, twenty-zero? it would've happened on its own, 2001 or not.

Re: The best part about the Nintendo DSi

theblackdragon

i bust out the camera on occasion to take pics to post to facebook (it's cheaper than trying to use my phone to do so), and the DSiWare shop is fun, but i think the best part is the larger screens and better speakers than the Lite. I also like the ability to change screen brightness on the fly. :3

Re: Nintendo's frustrating history of being endlessly ripped off: a retrospective

@grenworthshero: computer keyboards, though (or all the ones I've ever used, anyway) weren't laid out in a diamond shape -- it's one key centered over the bottom three keys, making the comparison somewhat skewed. in no way are arrow keys going to be confused with an actual d-pad, ever, but that Milton Bradley thing looks like a prototype version of the d-pads we all use now, sure.

Also, considering the messy history regarding the SNES-CD and its basis for the PlayStation anyway, I'm not surprised Sony would have designed the original controller with the SNES one in mind, and also, good for them. Nintendo has a history of kinda screwing around with the wrong people, to be honest -- or, perhaps the right people, as the consumer reaped the benefits of the PlayStation and FFVII after Nintendo kinda screwed over both Sony and Square respectively. :3

@Chu: that's why it's hell! of course, this means that he'll probably never answer any of your questions, nor will he ever grant you your requested hugs; thus it becomes hell for both of you.

Shiggy's got some good people under him. Nintendo will be all right.

That said, I thought Miyamoto was (a) God? Wouldn't that make him immortal or something?

@DJPhatskillz: lol
@WaltzElf: my point was, how does that make him different from any other president at this point? let him actually end the war during his presidency, and then give him the prize... he's got a few years ahead of him as commander-in-chief, he can (hopefully) do it. as of right now, though, all he's done is been elected, and last i checked they didn't hand out Nobel Peace Prizes to every Tom, Dick, and Harry who's been elected President of the United States just for having been elected.

Yeah. The typical American doesn't know enough about the outside world to realise how dangerous Bush was. Obama's done some brilliant things already internationally, not least of which bring a peaceful engagement with the Middle East back on the roadmap. It's way, way, way away yet, but under the republicans it's just never going to happen.

... because all americans who don't agree that Obama is naturally awesome automatically love the war and wanted Dubya to stick around for a few more terms? who's being narrowminded, again?

Obama is only a man. He eats, he drinks, he has a family, he has a (very) important job, he even smokes (or did he quit? i don't remember, nor is it any of my business, really), and he sleeps. The only reason he's even being entertained in the Middle East is because he's Not Bush, and he has done nothing yet but exist to 'earn' that prize. but do go ahead, keep telling me you know everything about my own country's politics and that because I live here, I know nothing. I'll wait patiently for you to finish, and then continue ignoring you.

Re: Sooo Obama got the Nobel Peace Prize this week

theblackdragon

@WaltzElf: if all he had to do to 'deserve' this prize instead of the other candidates was to become president, why not give it to the people who actually put him there? that's what i'm asking, because he certainly didn't vote himself into office, the people did that for him. Che Guevara did things, Miyamoto has done things, but what has Obama actually done so far?

also, i can't stand it when people in my own country try to tell me that Obama is going to save us all somehow, so I'm sure you can see that people outside my own country trying to shove the same crap down my throat are going to be flat-out ignored at this point. I certainly feel bad for the man being thrust into this situation by the Nobel Prize committee, and i hope he winds up doing something truly prize-worthy during his term of office, but as of yet, he has done nothing to deserve it IMO.

@Turbo Genesis 64: Actually, the idea that fascism is neither right nor left also holds credibility, as it takes ideas from both sides of the spectrum. if we're quoting Wikipedia, plz to see the part about its place in the political spectrum.

either way, i'm going to have to ask anyone else posting in this thread to either keep the comments on-topic, or keep them to yourselves. This place has been derailed enough, and unless you can prove fascism has anything to do with Obama having been awarded a Nobel Peace Prize, comments about it do not belong here. :3
