Yeah it is a great country where less then half a dozen unelected people who do not answer in any way to anyone can force their will on more then three hundred million people because they have an armed military and police force on their side who is unlike anything that has ever been seen in human history.

Also if we have no right to judge anyone and this is all about freedom then how come people who want to marry more then one person or people who want to marry animals were not included in this ruling?  Seems to me the pro gay marriage people are just as judgmental of the love of people they don't like as anyone else.

All the unhappiness that gays blame on chrisitans will not go away because of this ruling, so the time will come soon where Christians will be forced to either renounce their faith or face public execution.  You may laugh but that day is coming, they are already forcing chrisitans to make wedding cakes and now with this ruling churches will be force to preform this "marriages", so the out and out banning of the faith under the belief that it will solve all of gays personal problems can not be far behind.

The fact is America is not a free country and problems like this will never be resolved peacefully as long as five old unelected people are allowed to force their will on others.  I wonder if the ruling would have gone this way if they had to stand for election, didn't have an armed police force who murders anyone who questions them behind them, of they answered to the people in any way.

I love the fact that 99% of the time Christians are treated as pure evil in this country but despite that fact gays still want to use the courts to force the church to give them the blessing of the church and whenever something like 9/11 happens all you people can't run to the church fast enough to beg for protection.  Either Christians are an evil backwards hate group who shouldn't be listened to, in which case why do you care about getting married or getting wedding cakes, or they are the servants of God in which case ignoring the world of God is the dumbest thing you can do.

All I can say is if the Church in this country still stood for anything the next time there was a disaster in this country they would refuse to help and they would bar their doors to all the hypocrites who come running looking for protection from the Church.  You have made your choice now you have to live with it and never complain about the fallout when God with draws his protection from this country.

I know I am finished here after posting this because in this country there is no room in public for anyone who believes the Bible is the holy word of God so don't worry I am deleting my account.

Just remember when you find yourself still unhappy and depressed even after all the people who you say were attacking you are gone and when this country goes up in smoke, you were warned and you called us all crazy.

This country has made it's choice and the Bible is clear, we are not supposed to try and change anyone's minds.  The time has come for all Christians who believe in the Bible to do what I am going to do. Leave, and never again have any contact with the world.  This country has chosen hell so when everyone in it ends up burning in it they have no one to blame but themselves.  I am done with all contact with the outside world.  Nothing good has ever come of Christians trying to coexist with the people of the world, instead the world uses it's weapons to force us to sin.  All Christians should just cut themselves off and wait for death, that way they can't be forced to break the laws handed down to us by God.

Today proves that having contact with nonbelievers is in and of it's self a sin that destroys the church and I guilty of it as anyone.  Well no more.  I will never speak to anyone who isn't a member of my church for as long as a live, no good can come of it.

A comic con is coming to my area this summer for the first time, I am looking forward to it.

Oh and the world needs more barbers.  As a guy I am sick of having to go into hair dressers and deal with being offered all sorts of products and only having magazines that appeal to girls to read.

I may be an old stick in the mud but I think the world needs more barber shops.

when you don't even have ten cents to your name the buses are too much money and when the only free place to go locally is the library where you have to remain quiet that's not much of an option either.

I'll be fine, I am getting used to it.  I am just becoming a regular Mycroft Holmes here:)

[fill in the blank] Just Died!
Time

Well we just lost one of the all time greats:( I don't think any other single actor had a greater influence on me as a kid then he did. He took what was written at first a typical thug spy character and turned it into an icon with a mix of style, humor, and good manors. Steed was the perfect example of what a modern gentleman was supposed to be and that all came from Macnee's input into the early second season scripts. What is more he always managed to have great chemistry with whoever his costars were, and that is not easy to do when you have as many as he did. If I had to rate some of the Avengers episodes purely on their writing the show jumped the shark many times but he and his costars made them so much fun to watch and drew me in and had me believing even the most over the top ideas, that I own them all on DvD.

If you have never seen the Avengers correct that now, the discs are cheap on Amazon and thanks to Macnee it is a classic series that still holds up today because there is nothing else like it.

He managed to bring a sense of class to everything he did, be it a quick role in Scrooge, the original Battlestar Galactica, or This is Spinal Tap. He even managed to bring a sense of class to one of the worst Bond movies ever made.

If you want to see something more recent he did, he was in my favorite episode of Frasier along with Sir Derick Jacobi, and he was great in it.

Personally his death makes me even more sad then that of Nimoy. I loved Spock as a kid, but I always wanted to be John Steed and that completely came down to the changes Macnee made to the character when he wasn't happy with it.

Not many actors can claim to have not only played, but helped create a classic character that is still loved more then fifty years on.

I don't know about anyone else but this death brings a tear to my eye and He will be missed.

I have not been able to speak to a living soul outside of my family in over a year and it looks like it is going to be at least another year before I get the chance.0

I am 30 years old and I have no friends and no way forward, I hate life it just seems to drag on and on with no point or end in sight.

Do you watch the entire end credits of a movie/tv show?

Tobar said:

I always stay through the credits. Not so for television though, especially if there's the risk that they'll spoil the next episode with a stupid promo.

 Oh I hate that!

It's really bad when there is a cliffhanger and one of the scenes in the promo gives away how they get out of the cliffhanger, that is the worst.

It has been rereleased for 3ds, my cousin has it.

Also, if you've got a nintendo wii it's pretty cheap on the virtual console.  I emulate it on project64 (legally... I bought it on the virtual console then there's a way to extract the rom from that)


Just one last tidbit for it.  The guy who designed all the sidequest said that he incorporated every type of situation or problem for a character to get into that he had EVER experienced or witnessed in his real life, everything.  From a family friendly filter of course.  (he was in his 30's at the time)

 Yeah I have a Wii, the next time I go somewhere with highspeed that is what I am going to get!  Thanks.

My problem with emulators is I just can't get used to playing console games with a keyboard instead of a control pad, I am sorry but for me it takes me right out of the game.

I would much rather play them on the classic systems I already own with the controller they were built for.

Well I will keep an eye out for it at a decent price.  I really want to get a 3DS when I have the cash and I think it has been rereleased on that so when I do get one that will be at the top of my list of games to get.  Thanks.

I am a fan but I didn't get an N64 until it was off the market for a few years and by then the Zelda games were out of my price range so I never really got a chance to play that one, but it does sound good.

A good example of what I am talking about when it comes to little touches making you care more can been seen the first time I played Mass Effect 2.  In the first game there are two paper thin NPCs that only exist to give you very basic information about the hub world, I talked to them and didn't think any more about it.  In Mass Effect 2 there is a quick sub plot where you have to talk to someone who you never see again, but it turns out she is the mother of the two NPCs from the first game and they died during the events of the climax of the first game, and it has really messed her up.  I ended up feeling so bad about that, I ended up stopping my Mass Effect 2 game just so I could go back and replay the whole of ME1 just to be sure I had not missed a chance to save them when there was no bonus for doing this and they were just two information NPCs, still because I saw their deaths effecting another character I went searching for a way to save them.  I would love to see more of that sort of thing in future games.

Yeah same thing happened to me with reading.  I spent all my free time reading books and watching PBS and I ended up way ahead of the other kids my age.  Book are great and more kids need to get into reading.

With movies I didn't use to but now that there are no credits when the movie starts I do.

With TV shows I used to but since the credits are always squeezed into a tiny window so the network can show an ad for the show that is going to start as soon as the credits are over I don't bother any more.

One thing I miss is with TV shows and movies dropping opening credits the days of the great theme tune seem to be numbered and that makes me sad:(

 Sounds like you'd be interested in Kingdom Come: Deliverance.

 Wow, that sounds great!  I am really looking forward to that.

I love the medieval setting for games to the point where Lords of the Realm 2 is still one of my all time favorite games.  I can't wait to play this.

Well maybe it would stand a chance of lasting more then a couple of seasons then.  Lately Sci-Fi has been having a hard time getting the ratings needed to last on network TV, so despite the fact that I could not watch it I support Sci-Fi moving online where the fanbase is stronger and it stands a chance of not ending in the middle of a plot arc.

 Blah blah blah, some joke about recent college graduates not being able to find a job in the real world and resorting to stealing in order to keep up appearances with their parents... you fill in the blanks.

Sorry, couldn't resist.  Please continue.  :)

 In this day and age that would be the most realistic game ever.  Add in crushing college loans that make you wish you owed money to the mod and you have one intense game.

Yeah there is a reason I loved that game back in the day, I wish I could find a copy for a decent price.

That game hit the nail on the head for what I would like to see in the future of AI.  I love Skyrim and I will not say anything negative about it.  I will just say that imagine a game in that setting but where you only had to protect one village but the disc space was used to give every citizen a personality and life so you cared if you saved them or not and everyone of them could die in randomly generated events. Imagine how much you would replay the game trying to save your favorite characters and how invested you would be in the fate of that one village.

Shenmue was a work of art if you ask me and I would love to see more games take their NPCs in that direction.  In the end it's not the graphics that cell me on the game, it's the characters.  I mean the graphics date at some point but if I am drawn into the world I don't care.

Thanks for the interview link, that brought back some amazing memories of a great game that I have not been able to play in more then a decade.  You can tell everyone involved worked really hard on that game and even though it didn't appeal to everyone, I still think they deserve credit for trying to do something great and for the most part pulling it off.

Well imagine a Mass Effect type game where the random thugs from gangs you fight are not faceless, they are all NPCs who live in the world and you may have met and talked to.  There may even be some of them that you like, it would give players a real reason to try and talk their way out of trouble instead of killing everyone.

Or imagine a Grand Theft Auto game where the random NPCs may live or have family and friends on the same street you do and you can talk to them.  Imagine how much more alive it would feel if you could see the friends and family of people you killed upset over.  Or if you kill too many people and don't make friends your safe house will not remain safe and people may decide to attack your character while he is taking a shower or something.  That would add a whole new level to the game play of games like this if you ask me.

Maybe I am the only one who wants this but it is the feature I know I would most like to see in future games.

There were some things that I liked about that game but what I would really like to see is a game like Grad Theft Auto or Mass Effect where I feel like the NPCs in the hub areas exist outside of just giving you missions and selling you stuff.

I don't know, maybe I am alone in this but I feel like if the NPCs were more real the whole world would feel more real and I would be more invested in the game and more likely to buy the next entry on release day.

It's drinking?

For some people drinking alchol is a moral issue.  I never really understood that argument from a Christian perspective since Jesus drank wine.  I just don't because I don't think I can handle it.

On the flip side a lot of people seem to think that you are not really an adult until you have had a drink and you can't relax without getting drunk.  I have never understood this worldview either.

I never had bear in my life. Then again, I'm underage.

 I have never had one either.

I don't think it's wrong(After all Jesus drank wine)it's just with my personality I know that it would be real easy for me to get hooked on the stuff so I tend to avoid anything I know is addictive.  I figure why take the chance?

Plus the smell of the stuff always makes me feel ill and I have plenty of fun with out it.  I can't really imagine enjoying being drunk or having a hang over the day after.

If listening to audio books counts as reading then I am in the 1%.

I just find it easier these days because I am busy and I can listen to the books while I work on something else.

When I was a kid I used to read for hours every day because I had the free time.  I remember I once read Casino Royal in a single afternoon without getting up once to use the bathroom.  My bladder was screaming at the end but I couldn't put it down, that is good writing.

I miss having the time to do that these days.
