Yea, because the Nazis were very anti-violence. You're a genius for figuring this out. I hope you've warned the UN.

I just meant that Germany seems to be becoming a dictatorship more and more as time goes on. I just used the Nazis as a comparision. It's a censor of free speech,and this is not the right way to stop violence in Germany.

clearly, you have never heard of Godwin's Law. :3

God did give us our morals. He gave them to us through our conscience. He also wrote down the ten commandments, but not everyone knows them. Everyone has a conscience. When you lie, steal, covet, etc. your conscience tells you that what you are doing is wrong. Every person has a conscience, but they don't always follow. You know when you feel horrible after commiting a sin, that's the guilt of your conscience.

you may believe that way, but I do not. i believe the conscience is a result of living in social groups, of society; society tells you that what you did was wrong, and thus the inklings of shame appear within because, as humans, we have the ability to remember what we have done, we can think about it and the consequences of our actions from multiple angles, and we can empathize with all involved, for good or ill. when you lie or steal as a child, your mother or father admonishes you and tells you that you have done something to be ashamed of, that you have hurt someone else, and that stays with you for the rest of your life. nothing wells up from within as your conscience until society or natural consequences (i stepped on the frog and now the frog won't play with me anymore, why won't it play with me? perhaps it's hurt... i shouldn't step on the next one) come in to put it there.

I switch between Windows Vista and Ubuntu/Kubuntu daily thanks to my husband's obsession with Linux. While I don't really notice much of a difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu (gnome vs. kde isn't a big thing for me), the Linux boxen are so uncluttered and refreshing to use compared to Vista, and I like not having to constantly worry about viruses and those 'OMG there's a problem in My Computer!!!1' ads or popups that sometimes show up in firefox, lol...

However, Vista (obviously) runs Windows-based programs with ease (as opposed to emulation via wine), I have little problem with compatibility between the Vista computer's text files and outside computers' text files (i tried doing my resume in OpenOffice... yeah, that didn't go so well when I opened the file under Vista; god only knows what those prospective employers saw D: ) and also supports certain peripherals (Nintendo Wi-Fi Adapter, configuration as a wireless access point with proper antenna dongle) that a Linux-based system can't at the moment. I also trust the Vista system when it comes to burning CDs/DVDs. as opposed to Ubuntu (which I had a major problem with re: some important backups at one point... sigh).

in short, i don't really have a favorite, but if i did, it wouldn't be Mac OS X (tried that for a couple months on a business trip and hated every second of it). :P

what would really be sad about this is if their ban didn't actually stop people from doing terrible things, and they chose to ban something else, like violent movies or something. where would it end?

@Adam: haven't you ever visited Something Awful's review section for hentai games? they did 'RapeLay' (warning: NSFW) a while back... that one was actually banned by Amazon.com.

Actual addiction is a very serious issue. If you think you're actually addicted to this, but you're not willing to go to a psychologist or a doctor about it, you're only going to make things harder on yourself.

AuthorRe: Where are the best places to buy video games?
AvatarAdmin

theblackdragon

12,370. Posted:

if you don't use the internet, there's local hobby shops or small stores that may sell video games (check your phone book), there's chain stores devoted to games (GameStop, Game Crazy, E/B, etc.), there's video rental or electronics stores that may have a section devoted to games (Best Buy, Circuit City, Blockbuster), and then there's big stores that sell all kinds of stuff and may have a limited game selection (Target, Wal-Mart, K-Mart, etc.). There's also Craigslist, where you may be able to find people in your town wanting to sell their used games, and then as slapshot82 recommended, flea markets can also be a place to pick up video games for fairly cheap (watch out for bootlegs, though).

Rare or limited edition games will usually be out in the dedicated game shops instead of places like Wal-Mart or Target, or maybe you'll see a big advertisement on TV that you can only get (insert game here) at (insert store here) and they'll release it with a huge fanfare and all that. Wide-release first-party games like Rhythm Heaven or New Super Mario Bros., you'll be able to find just about everywhere (and probably for a slightly lower price at Target or Wal-Mart as opposed to GameStop or similar). Dedicated game stores are more likely to take trade-ins than big stores, and they may be able to special-order something for you or put something on hold for you for a few hours until you're able to get down there and get it, while large stores may have a policy against that kind of thing. It all depends on what you're looking for, really.

i believe in a benevolent higher power. i believe that people have tried to define it and what it may or may not want from us as lesser beings, but in the end, they are only people... and as people are so very prone to putting words in one another's mouths and twisting things to their own ends, i do not subscribe to any organized religion. i'd rather take my chances with what's in my own heart and mind than what someone else is trying to persuade me to believe.
i believe in reincarnation, and I have since I was little.
i do not believe hell exists outside of our own minds or our own makings.
i believe that arguments over religion are pointless, so i'm glad this thread has been pretty civil so far. :)

your coins do not reset until two full Club Nintendo years (July 1st to June 30th) after they were added to your account. for example, if you registered a game and did a survey for it to earn coins back in March of this year, if you don't spend those coins on anything they would be gone from your account on July 1st of 2011.
