waitaminute... never mind. i saw that '16' part of your original post and thought you were talking about your peers, not younger people on your FB. sorry, my former comment was from the viewpoint of someone who thought you were 16 and still in high school, so we can ignore that now. (any other 16-year-old high schoolers can freely take that advice, though! i had a crap job at 16 and don't regret it a bit; looking back on it makes me appreciate what i have now :3)

consider this my real reply to you, @lilman390: that 16-year-old kid working at Popeyes' is already more a man than someone who does nothing but sit around and play video games and watch TV. Gainful employment teaches responsibility and the value of hard work. I wouldn't look down on people earning minimum wage if I were you; chances are that's what you're going to be looking at yourself as soon as you graduate. If I had a dime for all the college grads I know who are now working in jobs nowhere near their field of study that they had to work their way up from the bottom rung, I'd be a millionaire.

I am in full agreement with @Retrowire. If you want a job, get one; there's a good chance it'll do wonders for your life perhaps not so much in terms of money, but in valuable real-world experience, goal-setting and fulfillment, working with others as a team, etc. and so forth. Don't get a job thinking it's gonna be fun and games, because it's work. That's why they call it 'work'. Get a job to better yourself as a person and to gain life experience.

If you don't want to get a job, then don't. Continue playing your video games, concentrate hard on your schoolwork and get excellent grades, and good luck when you're done with higher education and are dumped into the real world — and I mean that genuinely, with all my heart. Those student loans don't repay themselves, and there's a good chance you'll wind up working beneath your buddy at Popeyes' for at least a while before you find anything to do within your field of study. It's rough being in your mid-twenties and having to shop around with your resume with nothing but academic stuff on it. I've watched it happen to good friends of mine.

... says the person who's asking other people for their opinions regarding whether or not to get a job? you're sending very mixed messages... either you want a job but need help finding one — and that's something you should talk to your parents or legal guardians about, since they'll be the ones having to help arrange transportation and of course they'll want to know where you're going every day after school ;) — or you aren't going to bother anyway and anything we say will be pointless. :/

^ hey guys, just a quick reminder: be very careful who you add and choose to allow into your towns and what tricks and cheats you try. If you try the Item Duplication cheat and things go wrong, there's nothing we can do to fix it for you if your save winds up corrupted or if you lose things. try these cheats at your own risk!

@Phil: Regarding Jurassic Bark, Luck of the Fryrish, and Sting, the deaths (or near-deaths as the case may be) and the elaborate focus on them kinda helped to jab that knife into my heart. It was all A-plot material. Granted, the focus was a bit indirect in the former two, but Sting directly revolved around a death, so... yeah. As for Time Keeps on Slipping, no one died, and we didn't even really get to see Fry struggle to do whatever it was he did to win Leela's heart, just the aftermath and his subsequent attempts to figure out the puzzle. It definitely sucked for Fry in the end, but there is/was still hope for his relationship with Leela after that point, and plus that was all was more an accompaniment to the A-plot in that episode.

To be honest, I think I felt more emotion for Fry in Parasites Lost than i did in Time Keeps on Slipping, and that's not really saying much — my sadness for him is when he finds out that Leela only loves him for what he's become and not for who he is. That's a terrible sort of realization to have to come to.

I do usually tear up a bit for Fry in The Devil's Hands are Idle Playthings, though. All that work for nothing, everyone else storms out, and still Leela wants to hear how it ended.

Sting was another kinda teary-eyed one... not near enough Bender for me, though. My absolute favorite episode of Futurama (barring the latter half of Season 7/9, which hasn't hit Netflix yet) is The Route of All Evil... it's so focused on the kids hitting their dads where it hurts and has that great b-plot with Fry, Leela, and Bender, i love it :3

@HawkeyeWii: you're new to Futurama, so I'll give you a hint: Seymour's fate has already been revisited. Keep watching through the show, you'll find out. Netflix has all the episodes through the first half of [what Netflix is calling] Season 9 if you're having to catch repeats on Comedy Central or something.

That said, Jurassic Bark is the only episode of Futurama in my Netflix that doesn't have a 'you've watched this already' red bar beneath it. I saw that episode once, and it was enough for me. Even knowing what I know happens afterward, I still can't go back and watch that episode. I wonder if they truly realize how awfully, depressingly poignant it was for many of us — an excellent episode to watch once, and once only. :(

So, are you doing anything about a user who not only frequently initiated off-topic posting, but also quote posting wholesale.

We've stepped in to clean up the mess a few times, and I've just posted another reply to the user in question to help reiterate our stance on things. I'm not sure what more you want us to do, ramstrong — a little bit of off-topic posting and chit-chat and a multi-post here and there isn't enough to ban someone over in and of itself. if the user in question was a serious troublemaker, maybe we'd have done something more permanent already, but in this sort of case we're leaning toward leniency.

I find it somewhat creepy that staff and admin can edit our posts to their liking. I mean, you can go on GameFAQs and their rules aren't that strict.

I'm not sure why it's so 'creepy' of us to enforce our Rules and leave notes for users via edit, but so you know, moderator edits and comment deletion are covered by our Community Rules. If you don't like them, you're more than welcome to head on over to GameFAQs and disrupt topics to your heart's content, but here, we ask that you stick to the topic at hand and post constructively, especially in a thread so project-focused as this one. I believe I posted this before, but just to reiterate, if you want to chit-chat, this is the thread for you.
