This is supposed to be the WORST characters ever, not the most awesome!
slight leaning towards awful good in my opinion, but I am more concerned about beach ball good with respect to the deities mentioned above. The last thing golarion needs is to turn their good deities into laughably flawed time of troubles FR nonsense.
all I can say is watch outlaw star.
DO NOT WATCH BUBBLEGUM CRISIS 2040.
it's never too late for BSG...
But since you asked, it's always time for MOBILE SUIT GUNDAM.
Not wing. Not Seed. Not X. Not 00. The original, from the hand of Tomino-o-sensei and company themselves. Parts of it have NOT aged well, but it is an epic. I am interested in doing the hardest of hard core things and enjoying Gundam in chronological order- reading the manga, watching the anime, movies, OVAs, etc as they happened in the universe.
Couldn't have put it better myself.
The world we live in IS NOT that of Judge Dredd. The cops ARE NOT judge, jury and executioner all rolled into one- they are COPS.
We have had too many people of late die from offenses that they should have been rightfully ticketed or arrested for. Resistance should be futile, but not deadly, not in the ways we have seen it over the past months. Yes, cops put their lives on the line every day. One never knows when something is going to get ugly and potentially life threatening. But the people who have been killed lately presented only a minimal threat at best to the officer that ended up killing them. It would be different if they had a gun, or hell, even a knife. But the idea that they are big black and scary and the white cop is so *utterly helpless* in every way shape and form that they HAVE to shoot the person despite the other non-lethal weapons at their disposal is unacceptable. Forget the loss of life, it's also making THEIR OWN LIVES a living hell. I may not trust cops very much, or even like them, but I know when they fire a gun, they are accountable for each and every bullet they fire- and when they kill someone they end up living with the ramifications of that death for the rest of their own lives. We should not be putting people on the street, entrusting them with lethal weapons, only to have them use them in situations where it isn't warranted and/or break down when they DO have to use them or shoot themselves out of a job. There's something wrong with the way these cops are being trained, and I think the militarization/mechanization of the police force on a large scale is the main problem.
VI REIGNS SUPREME!!!!!!!!!!!!
What? It was fun, I played it with my wife a dozen times. It was fun having a 2 player game.
I need to..*ahem* research...x-2..Yeah, that's it, RESEARCH X-2. In slow motion.
I'm sorry to disagree with you here. I have no problem with Torag being more than a bit of a jerk to his enemies, and I read "scatter" to mean something other and considerably less than "genocide".
Also, I never realized just how game-breaking Gau can be in the early part of FF6 if you know what you're doing with Rages and take the time to track down the nicer ones.
I can't believe you didn't know that. I personally think it's so the fight with Ultros in the Operahouse goes well if you didn't level everyone appropriately(Ultros can kill everyone at that point in the game), but Gau is a true beast(LOL). My friend cracks him out every game to give him the Merit Award(may have changed in later version) so he can have the fight ability and then truly turn the game on its' head.
Posting from the farthest north I have ever been VERMONT! here for a wedding. BNBing a place with friends - this place is HUGE!!!
Sorry Aranna that's not going to work. There are a number of historically black colleges and universities and a number of black people who own family businesses, and overall lead normal lives. It's not enough to keep bigots from thinking whatever they are going to think. Moreover, a point that is often lost on non black people is that black people, unlike many other peoples, ARE NOT a monolithic race all sharing a common culture and origin. Well, maybe an origin, but not a culture. Too much information has been lost since slavery days, and since then people have moved all over in search for work, education, food, what have you- there is no common point of origin anymore. As noted above, my wife is African American while I am African Caribbean - our languages, cultural mores and viewpoints and experiences in life are VERY VERY DIFFERENT and we can even tell the minor differences between ourselves physically even (wife sees the golden notes in my skin tone, can see the very minor waves in my hair from the other people's in my ancestry). Black people are NOT all the same, and trying to encourage them to band together as one is going to cause problems. In many ways, this was what caused so many problems in the struggle for civil rights with the differences between Malcolm x and Martin Luther King with respect to northern/urban and southern/rural (which is my wife's family background).

it seems you think only black people can be racist.I would ask you to ask your friends if they TRUST the police more so than like or even not hate them. You may be surprised by some of the answers.

no, because I think you are woefully limited in your experiences. You claim to have friends of all races, but rely heavily on stereotypes in your reasoning - even going so far as to bring up stereotypes that have nothing to do with this situation in general or specific(see bolded above). It makes me wonder if you do judge your other race friends by the same yardstick, and whether or not you have them simply to say you aren't racist. There is a lot of things wrong with the reasoning you are using here, not necessarily because you don't have the eight to opine and disagree, but because the disagreements don't end there and continue into some kind of rant (again, see bolded above). You don't have to agree with me or others to be not racist. But I am going to wonder whether or not you are when you:
- go on rants that have NOTHING to do with anything anyone has said on this topic(see bolded above)
- ignore counterpoint when they are brought up (see when black cops are threatened got shooting white people above)
- ignore other viewpoints on other races when they are brought up while you use them as a rather offensive example of a "good minority" (see Asians, avove)
- loudly and jumpily defend yourself as not racist and accuse others of talking to you on the topic as an attempt to convert you to another way of thinking, using the ancient canard of "I have many (insert race here) friends" or that those who talk to you on it in any way that counters your viewpoint are the "real" racists (see the post I am responding to)
- with respect to this case (the shooting) ignoring that this department has been sued for violent behavior before (see Anklebiter and hakkiders posts above)
- with respect to this case, not provide evidence for your point via a link (see cracked orbital above)
I don't support rioting in any way shape or form unless there are aliens landing or the four horsemen of the apocalypse are riding high in the sky (in either case, I'm arming myself and fighting back). It's why I don't trust the protestors. But the pd here has shown poor judgment and poor treatment of their constituents here and in the past and the racial makeup of the department gives me pause. I don't trust them either. And despite your many different raced friends and claim of looking at both sides of an issue, I have trouble trusting you here as well. I don't think you a bigot, but I do think you are on your way to becoming one if you rely on your stereotypes and do not look at racial issues beyond what you see on TV and the friends you have collected.

As I said above, the Ferguson pd have lied at least once. I would hesitate to give them the benefit of the doubt in this, as it is suspicious. Moreover , every person who has linked up "Michael Brown's arrest record" had been linking up to another Michael Brown (the I only way this could have been worse is if his name was John Doe) or have put up links to an erroneous Facebook page. The most recent person to so this was a cop in Missouri, who may be fired for it as he put up a picture of someone who is a suspect in another case and claimed it was Michael Brown. Ferguson pd, again, has lost all credibility with me. I do not trust them a whit.
Is there anything that would make it sound suspicious to you, or so you defend the police until something hard comes up?

considering a sizable portion of a previous generation to me broke those laws to ensure that I could eat at the same establishment you do and use the same bathroom, your appeal to law and order here falls on suspicious ears.

AL has already been there. And I'm going to wait on declaring this man innocent or guilty, the Ferguson pd has already been caught in one lie in that they doctored the tape to show that he didn't pay for the cigars when he actually did. They have no credibility with me.
Alignment in general has come under fire as alignment-light mmo games have increased in popularity and class abilities are seen as party resources- if the party needs the paladins abilities in a situation that the paladin wouldn't enter as a character, that's tough nuggies: the needs of the many outweigh the needs of the individual.
I'm running into issues with complaints about rogues in my kingmaker game along with complaints about finesse weapons and rapiers specifically, the idea of a single class having so many skills and being able to do so much damage through what some see as clever rule exploits is causing some friction. People seem to either want the rogue more or less powerful-noone is happy with the way things are currently.
Note that this is only my experience and opinion.
I'd like to see the hard evidence of gunfire at police along with the hard evidence of two dozen police cars being burned/destroyed along with the hard evidence of molotov cocktails. No statements to press or pictures, I'm talking a live feed. The Ferguson pd has lost all credibility with me, they are relying too heavily on their word as police officers and not providing anything else. I trust them about as much as I trust a politician.
Of course not. There is an (HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA)investigation done by the cops every time shots are fired, but it is usually if not always cops investigating themselves and quickly clearing themselves of any wrongdoing.
And believe it or not, that's it for Otakon. There are a lot more pics I didn't post, but I think the best ones are here. But that's not all that happened of late.
CH and I did indeed go and hang out a few days ago. We ALMOST had sex in the lobby...but we decided to go to Katz' instead. CH got the FAMOUS RUBEN SANDWICH from there, while I went with a chili dog. Both meals were meant to soak up alcohol from our later trip to Lovecraft, where we got some nice drinks and a wonderful tour of the facility, any FAWTL visiting NY will have to come to this place. Here is a pic of a hand-typed letter by Lovecraft himself, describing the horrible ssubhumans who live in the Lower East Side(as most know he was quite a bigot)
THE BEST SHEP. Not only is this the best Shep, my friend and player in the Darklight Sisterhood Game as well as the Kingmaker game just finished up a Voice Acting class taught by the BEST SHEP HERSELF! It cost a pretty penny, but it was worth it. She truly loved it, and has been dubbed The Best Shep's Shy Friend
