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? :P

@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.

You know what they say about an outsiders perspective usually having that degree of objectiveness that is impossible for people in the thick of it to see?

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. :)

@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

I don't think you guys realise just how big the collective sigh of relief was in the rest of the world when Obama, and not the other dude, won the election.

That in itself is worthy of the peace prize.

then why is the peace prize going to Obama, when it should (according to that viewpoint) rightly be going to over half of the voting citizens of the U.S. (or over half of the electoral college if you'd like to get picky)? after all, if anyone's deserving of an honor for Obama just having taken office, it should be going to the people who actually cast their votes to get him in there.

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?

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?
