General / Hey did anyone notice...

I still smurf(I have no idea what this word means but it seems to fit the context) the forums from time to time and it seems that every conversation ends up being a discusion on how ns and lm are dead. Seems to me that if for over a year now its still being talked about and smurfed over(usage?) it could make a pleasant comeback.

or at least i hope so.

General / NS 3.1 out tomorrow

I like how they found out that School aged people are more likely to cheat on an exam than old people.

Stats rule.

i cant afford DU. That school is crazy expensive. Im going to Metro State so my place on 17th and Grant(if you know where that is) is practically next door.

On a similar note, anyone in the Denver area(Im looking at you LB and Knappe) is invited to the Apartment warming party this wednesday. So far with the number of people coming we may get kicked out before we really get moved in.

Should be fun though.

I found me a new place in Downtown Denver that is big pimpin and right next to my school. Unfortunately I probably wont have a good internet connection, or more likely one at all so it looks like my online gaming days are over for a while.

Turns out the reason the other place rejected us on credit is because my friends SSN has two other people on it.... A little identity theft never hurt anyone though. One of the other hims has had a couple of run ins with the law.

So starting about thursday, Ill no longer be on the server more than once or twice a month. It saddens(sp?) me.

Peace out Y'all

Off Topic / Is the LM Community dead or just boring?

Is that a serious question Loke?
I guess it might be an American thing though. Cow tipping is pushing a cow over while it is sleeping because they sleep standing up sometimes.

Not many people do it but everyone talks of it. Its more of a joke than reality.

yeah, they said they would give us the numbers of the credit agency because apparently they just send the building a yes or no, nothing else. I understand that new credit can be seen as bad credit, seeing as how im 21 and the other guy is 22 there is considerable risk for them statistically.

The real issue I have is that they said they didnt mind new credit SPECIFICALLY. I made sure to ask. They then took our money and immediately called us back with a no. My credit score is 762 about and my friends is 650ish. Those are both more than good enough.

Im just mad at the world. and i want my 40 bucks.

Im having the other guy get the free credit check then we are going to decide what to do. Once we have our facts in order we will bring it up with them. I thought this whole thing seemed kind of shady on their side, Im just curious to see if any of you with rental history had any insight. I have a temper and they are about to see it I think.

My friend and I were going to move into an apartment in downtown denver, it was pimpin and cheap. Perfect. They said that all you needed was credit with no major bad marks, not a lot of credit.

Today they call me back and say we both failed our credit checks which is bull, because I did that free online credit thing and I have almost perfect credit. Ive never missed a payment on anything.

They said they didnt know why we failed the credit, just that we did. Plenty of employers purposely dont employ army reservists because it is risky with the high deployment rate right now and we can also break leases with no penalty.

are they required to show us what failed us? Any hints/tips?

You never said anything about rape or Hitler, just something about marriage.

I never said I agreed with the war in Iraq either, in fact, I hate it. We need to stay but we should never have gone.

These children that are dieing arent hypothetical, they are real. It almost sounds like you think im exaggerating or making it up. None of the media outlets actually report what happens in the world, just what boosts ratings or pushes an agenda. Dont marginalize innocent children, they deserve your concern as much as the ivory coast.

I do understand that fundamentalist muslims have their own beliefs. Im not retarded, im just oppinionated, against people who kill everything indescriminitely.

Agreeing that everyone is right doesnt work in reality. Sounds great in books, doesnt work in real life, like communism.

I do my best to just stay out of political discussions because it always just makes me mad, and I enjoy being chillaxin'. However, when someone decides they are going to call me and my best friends evil, I take some offense.

The American Army today is the most caring and compassionate fighting force the world has EVER seen. Have you ever been under direct fire from people trying to kill you with rpgs and aks and NOT fired back because you knew the kids in the neighborhood and worried for THEIR safety more than your own? I dont think so, but I might be wrong.

Since you got me going dubb, I also am quite sure that there are universal evils. Rape. Argue that one. Animals dont do it. If a male gorilla gets turned down, he yells a lot, gets pissed, and leaves. He doesnt rape. People can reason and should ,if for the only reason that we can. I see the point that with large scale political views evil is unclear but in everyday life there are definite evils. Anyone want to argue that Hitler isnt evil? indeed.....

Similarly, dont feel sorry for insurgents. They knowingly kill a large group of children to get ONE american soldier. heroes I tell you. Especially when they intentionally target the American groups that are building infrastructure, schools, delivering aide and helping out the poor of Iraq. Maybe you should stop being so wishy washy and stand for something. You can stand purely for peace, but unless you personally sacrifice for your stance, who cares?

Asal, if people are willing to do whatever it takes to ensure their security, why cant the armed forces recruit? People arent giving up freedoms for security, they do it because Americans are an apathetic people. We would rather suffer minor injustices than be inconvenienced by doing anything about it. Hell, American Idol starts in an hour, I cant protest now.

All that said, my friends and I fight and die for your right to say what you want Dubb(oh the evil of it all) and I do respect what you say, especially the Africa stuff which is totally right.

Ive been ranting, I apologize, O'Doyle rules.

For anyone who is seriously worried about martial law, dont be. It would be impossible to implement with todays military. As a soldier i cant think of a feasible reason why I would carry out an order to patrol American streets. It just wont happen.

I cant stand that color coded system. The only useful purpose I see is that it attempts to keep people kind of informed, but it really doesnt. Id rather they make a bigger deal of publicizing the people they catch, and the attacks they stop.

The tri-pods couldn't even walk straight. They looked drunk. Of course only Tom Cruise could see this, the soldiers who had been fighting these things for days didnt notice. They dont have that top notch scientologist training.

Oh, and I dont think HG Wells knew what an EMP was so that isnt his fault.

I do know how to suspend disbelief, I like Once Upon a Time in Mexico and The Big Hit and neither of those movies were the least bit believable. James Bond is unbelievable but those movies rock.

okay, so the EMP only kills working electronic devices.
So EVERYONE was driving their car at that moment. No one was just chilling at home. ZOMG its still a plot hole.

Spielberg should just stop making movies. I think he is off his rocker along with Lucas and Tom Cruz. In all his movies now-a-days it seems he only does things if it will make a cool shot, forget plot and common sense.

My friend and I busted out laughing when in boston the soldiers of the 10th mountain were walking all tactically and using hand signals next to a MASSIVE crowd of people.

The camera at the begining made we want to cry, he must have had it in an EMP proof case or something. You can find it on the sony website I think.

I agree with LC, this movie blew my balls.

Im not real in touch with my emotions, so I cant ever remember crying at a movie.
I cried a little at the end of some book about school boys during the blitz in London. Dont remember the name.

I tried that whole getting in touch with my emotions thing and it made me mad at the world for almost a year, so never again.

oh, and WTF BM?

He is in the book? I must say that I liked the first couple of books more but having read so much of it, I feel like I have to finish.
