  1. If two people are having fun messaging each other while being next to each other, what's wrong with that? Why are people so against how other people communicate with their friends?
  2. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Just colour her zero suit in skin colour and she's basically naked anyway. No need for bikinis.
  3. Taboo Topics

    Well is it not already easy to just bribe the people in charge of overseeing ballet counting? I wouldn't say have only a select few vote, but instead use weighted system where some voters get more voting power than others. I don't think having the "proles" vote forces politicians address their issues. If anything, it gets them to create catchy slogans, make promises they can't keep, and create laws because they sound good to a layman as opposed to actually being good. Lastly, I don't know if it would still be called democracy, but if we had the system we had now, but elected government officials that were actually experts in the area they are being elected to, then I would think it would work much better. Having people creating laws to restrict the internet when they have no idea how the internet works or how it impacts the population, is a bit ridiculous.
  4. Taboo Topics

    I've been thinking and talking about this recently and I honestly think it's not. Not even close. Right now, government appears to be a popularity contest where a face is promoted with the majority of people basing their votes on incredibly stupid reasons. Politicians are not educated in any of the things they make decisions about and work in an environment that promotes corruption and has no transparency. I think government should be created from individuals that are highly educated in the area that they are going to be overseeing, without a mass voting system that depends on things like making promises and people pleasing. The kinks still have to be worked out but I don't even think everyone should get a vote that is equal. Some people are just way more qualified to make decisions about how a country is run and I don't think Ben the priest and Mary the housewife should get the same power in deciding how the country is run as a Professor in Economics.
  5. People find it rude because it insinuates that the other party is disintered, bored or not listening to you. I think that technology is great and people use it all the time for a reason. The way people communicate is changing and while some people might not like it, it's no reason to incur a technology ban on other people. If you're talking to someone yet they won't stop playing on their phone, well either be more interesting or find friends that do find you interesting. We now have enormous sources of entertainment at our fingertips and it's not technology's fault that people can't keep up. But to answer the question, when did it become normal to use technology, when technology became more useful, more exciting and more engaging than regular everyday activities.
  6. Nintendo Next Gen Handheld

    To be fair on the Moto G, that phone was made when Motorola was owned by Google and Google wanted to create a cheap phone that worked well because they get their profits from the software. Now that Google don't own Motorola anymore, you won't see phones like that.
  7. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Did direct say it's a different character or skin? Do they both have the same attacks then?
  8. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    Looks like you can play as the male wii fit trainer from the last image?
  9. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    I don't really mind when it comes out. Have no Wii U and lost my 3DS without the money to get another one so it's convenient that I'm not tempted.
  10. Super Smash Bros. 3DS / Wii U

    I think it looks terrible to be honest. Especially the clear jagged edge at the very top.
  11. good stuff thread.

    That shit is like 60 euro. Edit, just checked, it's like 20. I'll get on that when I get my next grant. Poor as shit now.
  12. good stuff thread.

    They said it would be going to 120mb though, but I can only get 36mb from wireless in my room so it doesn't really matter.

    Internet got upgraded for free!
  14. How I Met Your Mother

    I've never been that invested in this show even though I've watched every episode. I thought the ending was fine. Didn't really mind what happened to any of the characters.
  15. CERN is where I was brought to at the start. Where are the other pokemon labs?
  16. How do you people have the patience to find them all?
  17. April Fools

    Yeah it is. I've caught a few myself.
  18. Alien: Isolation

    Well watching all the things about this, one of the guys said that the alien can smell you, and you leave a faint trace of smell for a while before it dissipates, so even if you hide and stay perfectly still, he'll be able to find you by your smell eventually.
  19. I thought you'd have to go around the city looking for these to actually catch them. Turns out you just find them on the map and tap them. It's cool enough, found a few in Dublin, London and France.
  20. The Walking Dead

    I don't read the comic so I don't care about the differences but it's really really obvious that they weren't trying to hit them with those shots. You could clearly see them shooting repeatedly to where they were going to go, making them turn, but also behind them so they wouldn't stop running.
  21. good stuff thread.

    Finally finished the final draft of my dissertation. Very proud of it
  22. The LEGO Mafia DIY

    OK, I'm gonna have to go with Smeagol then. There's 4 people left except me and probably two mafia so it's 50, 50 anyway. Smeagol has the same power basically as Jonnas and mafia don't need to protect against kills because they're the ones doing the killing, so he can easily target someone and get them killed while protecting them from protection. Vote Smeagol
  23. Stuff That Freaks You Out

    I think anyone would freak out if they were buried alive. Similarly if they were trapped in a cave filling up with water. I think any sign of impending death that is unavoidable will freak people out really.
  24. The LEGO Mafia DIY

    I don't know who to go for anymore since Rummy turned town. What's your reasoning for voting the way you did (everyone)?
