  1. Beef? We only serve Kangaroo here!

    A while ago they were talking about finding ways to use the gas produced by cows and sheep for energy... what a crazy world we live in... I cant see this actually happening, though its cool to think about it. Kangaroo tastes nothing like beef, its more of a novelty thing to eat kangaroo. Dogs love to chew on kangaroo tails, they can last a while :P
  2. i think this is kinda old, http://n-europe.com/news.php?nid=12145 was discussed in the comments there. Basically, everything iwata said was taken out of context.
  3. How was your day?

    same thing happened to me about 18 months ago, except the bitch left it on the ground wrapped in toilet paper. never been so disgusted ever before thank god shes moved out
  4. Fantasy Football 2008/2009

    me and my mates are in a league with a reasonable sum of money up for grabs to the winner. No chance of neglect
  5. The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)

    Perhaps i too am being superficial.. The way he does the sucking thing with his toungue, or the way he acts when explosions he is resposible for are going off around him for example. Now that i think about it a little more, these possibly arent things he directly got from nicholson but even still, I like the way which nicholson did them "first". I can see how u came to that conclusion from my poor choice of wording
  6. The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)

    Before I start.. I dont like the word 'arguement', or you referring to my opinion as 'nonsense' What I said wasnt supposed to directly say that YOU cannot think this way, just simply a (poor) choice of words to express my opinion on the matter. You can say that the mega-drive was better than the saturn, but at the end of the day ur opinion is bias because u prefer the games on the mega-drive (not going to get into a debate about inflation affecting the prices etc!). I am sure there are people out there who actually prefer the Saturn due to it's games (crazy-taxi, ohhh man!), or technology. But I would tend to agree with the statement that one is not better than the other. Each have their pros and cons. Your tastes simply cannot be a matter of fact! It's that reasoning that makes me say that you can't argue that one joker was better than the other. Sure you can prefer one over the other, that is a matter of taste. I prefer Nicholson because hes the joker i grew up with and i love the presense he had in that movie, but that is simply a matter of opinion. Perhaps it also iritates me a little that Ledger was obviously influenced by nicholsons joker, and no credit is given to him. I fall short of saying that he was BETTER than ledger, because ledger's performance was simply brilliant. Both jokers played an imperitive roll in the movie they were in, and neither joker would fit in to the others' movie. Therefore i dont feel one did a better job than the other, they both performed their roles brilliantly. I think that is a fair enough statement. but again, at the end of the day it is simply a statement of my opinion, which you may use as a point for further discussion in the thread. Im not going to argue that my opinion is more right than someone else's in this kind of subject matter! As for time not making a difference at all Are u quite sure your opinion of nicholson's joker wouldnt change at all if his story wasnt enhanced by the special effects that are available today for ledger's joker? This is what i meant by decades apart in time (its quite literally near 20 years). I think that played at least some small part in each jokers' character. At least, that is simply my opinion In short, arguing on the internet is pointless. Instead what makes forums interesting is discussion of opinions.
  7. People Who Need To Be Punched In The Face

    you wouldn't hit a guy with glasses would ya?
  8. User Image Gallery

  11. The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)

    Would just like to say that there are many people who didnt pick up on the fact that the joker lied about rachel's position. About Katie Holmes not doing the sequel, not sure if u guys have been living under a rock or not. But the film was shot the best part of 12 months ago, Mrs Cruise has a new-born to look after (lets not get onto a "shes whipped by tom" arguement, any good mother wouldnt have done the sequel at that time). Thirdly, anyone who takes nicholson's comments seriously here is clearly missing who jack nicholos really is "I know how to do that!", classic nicholson hahaha. Saying he isnt inclined to watch it is in a way (if you understand nicholsons warped self) taken out of context. You simply cannot argue who was a better joker, since both roles were DECADES apart (in both years, and depiction) Fourthly (:P) there were some parents in the cinema i watched the movie with children under 5 years old, that is seriously fucked up =/
  12. Quick question about texting...

  14. Wasps!

    I hate bugs of all kinds, if i see them i kill them. Moissies, flys, spiders, wasps, bees, moths. The can of mortein is going to fuck them up I think it all stems from wasps attacks i seemed prone to when i was young. Perhaps the worst was a day (I was about 8) where my dad told me to retreive a ball from under our caravan (which hadnt been used for a while). I did so, because dads know best right? Wrong, turns out there was a nest of wasps underneath. I got 5 bites on the face, and two on my right arm. I cant remember crying harder than I did that day (And i had to get 26 stiches in my mouth when i was 5 due to a moterbike/barbwire accident). I hate any kind of bug, they must all die. End of story.
  15. The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)

    exactly, a simple "what?!" or something similiar to show he was shocked to see Dent there would have been enough to clue me up to what had happened.
  16. We're going to talk about playing today...

    oh god this thread made me lol so hard! I am so guilty of so many things already mentioned. I sub-consiously play with just about anything thats nearby, I'm terrible! I'll make a list... - Clicky pens, or pens that make a click sound when u take the lid on and off. - Cricket balls, I'll just be reading stuff online constantly chucking a cricket ball up and down - Rubber bands - Playing cards, shuffle shuffle shuffle shuffle shuffle shuffle - blu tac - scissors (!) - staplers, i must have wasted thousands upon thousands of staples at work, lol. - keys with a circular key ring, i'll just twirl it around. - things with removable battery covers. - my phone (its a pop-top one, what a mistake that was) - the scroll wheel on my mouse, i removed its function so i can play with it haha. - String cords on my shorts. - Stanley knives, flicking the blade up and down makes the most awesome noise. Im honestly terrible with this kind of thing, I dont even realise im doing it :S Also add stubble scratching, and playing with poker chips. I keep some on my desk just to stuff around with. Grrr, this thread is giving away my weaknesses! :P

  19. The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)

    Good post, exactly how i felt about that part of the movie. It should have been made a little clearer. I saw it with two other people and neither of us could explain it. When i got home I asked my housemate (who is the biggest batman nerd, he'd already seen it 3 times at the movies and a few times on a downloaded cam version) and he said it was because batman chose gotham city over rachel... I said bs, he wouldn't change his mind half way there, he told gordon he was going to get rachel. My housemate didnt believe that he said this, so we played that part of the movie and he freaked out saying I'd ruined the movie forever for him, hahaha. When we found out the real answer, we were definately very satisfied As for the whole robin debate... I'm not sure. I think younger people want a robin so they have something more relateable too, where as the more matured of us (I like matured a whole lot better than older ) are quite happy for him to remain solo. I dont like the idea of there being a young sidekick, this batman version seems focused on bruce wayne and his story (his business, love life, ethics, and batman). There is no need for another character to be added.

    Aha! I was way off track. Brilliance
  24. Is the guy in the poster definately goku, or could is possibly be older teenage gohan (which seems a more acurate depiction) (clutching at straws i know..)
  25. The Dark Knight Discussion (Spoilers)

    Finally got around to seeing this, there's one thing thats bothering me about it that has probably been answered in one of the 11 pages, but I'm feeling lazy. Can anyone give me a quick answer? Why did batman tell gordon he was going to save rachel, and then go for harvey? So confused. I think I understand why, but that just sucks. Also, no real hint at a sequel at the end of the film. I'm guessing there will be one right? :S
