considering it's 'nineteen ten', i'd imagine 'twenty ten' would catch on fairly quickly, though 'two-thousand ten' would also be popular. so... both?

@Stuffo: I know you've already had it out with Adam over what you said before, but I'd like to link you to some articles that may help you to shape your views on racism and how it works:

A Look at the Myth of Reverse Racism
some thought-provoking blurbs
Hating Whitey: The Myth of Black Racism
Racism = Prejudice + Power
Globalizing Hate: Power and Prejudice (a look at racism outside the US)

these links are by no means the be-all, end-all of racism information on the internet, but i hope they help you where you're at right now. :3

@Machu: and what happens if he doesn't get anything done during his presidency? will they rescind the prize and give it to our next president in hopes they'll end up doing something Nobel-worthy? seriously, this isn't saying much for the value of the Nobel Peace Prize at all. :/

Whatever you say, V. The easiest way to impress a guy is still to make him think he knows more than you. Self-confidence is unattractive.

Self-confidence is attractive; there is nothing more sexy than someone who's comfortable enough in their own skin to relax and shoot the breeze with you. There's a fine line between just being self-confident and just being pushy or overbearing, however, both of which are very much not attractive in the slightest. The easiest way to impress some guys is still very much to act the ditz around them, but do you really want to be with those guys? :/

I want a girl who's interested in gaming, but she need not be as into it as I.

Whenever I read things like this, I kinda start to despair.

It's like guys will like you as long as you're inferior to them. You've got to earn less money, be worse at their hobbies than they are, be stupider, etc. You have to be disinterested, unskilled, and ditzy. The minute you show any sort of enthusiasm or ambition, it's a turn off.

It's like guys want to be teachers and don't want to have to learn anything from a girl. The envision themselves as Pygmalion or something, only comfortable when they're the expert schoolmaster and their girlfriend is the apt pupil.

I got 'she doesn't have to be as into gaming as I am, i'll still like her anyway' from what Stuffo said... i mean, bare minimum she's able to play some Brawl and she's got some geeky tendencies; that way they'll at least have some stuff in common even if she's busy introducing him to other things that she personally prefers to do. what's up with the inferiority complex?

V, you've got it reversed. There are tons of worthy laureates, and only a sprinkle of unworthy ones. Bertha von Suttner, Roosevelt, The Red Cross, Medicins San Frontiers, LB Pearson, Linus Pauling, UNICEF, E. Sato, Al-Sadat, the Dalai Lama, Shirin Ebadi, Mother Teresa, Martin Luther King Jr, Andrei Sakharov... I mean come on. It means something still.

not so much... considering those unworthy few who have also won it, us everyday people are only ever going to hold up future winners to those lame examples, whether it's fair to future winners or not. 'whoop-dee-doo, you won a Nobel Peace Prize... didn't Al Gore win one a couple years ago? Didn't Obama win one last year? lol, anyone can win those things...'

The best thing he could possibly do for himself is turn it down and acknowledge that he hasn't done anything to earn it yet, IMO, but it kinda sucks that he's being put into this position anyway. I'd be embarrassed and pretty angry at the Nobel people trying to give him that prize if I were him, having won against those other people. :/

the 2D Marios don't really compare well to the 3D Marios... i'd say if you didn't like Mario 64 or the DS remake, you probably won't like SMG. There's a lot more to consider movement-wise in the 3D Mario games, there's forces of gravity to deal with in this one, and the new controls as well. If you're a perfectionist, be warned that there are a few stars in SMG that will take try after try after try to get, and you will get frustrated and want very much to throw your wiimote through a window, but if you just want to play through all the levels and beat the game and that's all, you'll probably be all right.

Guys, I hate to tell you this, but we might be in an war with the haters after all. And I'm not responsible for this.
We cannot let this site be hijacked by haters, this is one of the last resorts for true fans of Nintendo.

Why are you always so willing to 'fight' and 'war' against people? If the people you think are 'haters' would like to discuss rationally why they dislike the Wii here on the NL forums, great, more power to 'em -- a good old-fashioned discussion is hard to come by here sometimes, what with all the random posts and the fact that many of us agree with one another on some things, lol. If those discussions turn into shouting matches, we'll start locking threads, and if they'd rather troll the forums, we'll pick 'em off as they're reported. Please stop blowing things out of proportion, SSBFan, and whatever you do, don't get sucked into any fighting or warring you think is going on, because your posts will get moderated just as quickly if you're being as offensive as the 'haters'.

That goes for everyone, in fact. There is no 'war' to be won; everyone will lose. Keep your cool, guys.

i know there have been a couple spam-ish posts by Chinese sellers of accessories that were deleted (probably because they also sold flashcarts), and while NL has been very much anti-piracy, the forums have been fairly anti-China with regards to buying Nintendo products (mainly because a few of us have already been burned by sellers from HK and China with counterfeit products). that'd be my guess, at least.

... or perhaps it's the blog posts? i mean, hasn't China blocked blogs before? Perhaps they found SSBFan1999's blog thread subversive, lol... ;3
