But the more they act this way, the more common gamers are going to think that the only important part of a game is the ending.


Let´s go back to the cracked-C64-games era.
INFINITE LIVES (Y/N)?
SEE ENDING NOW (Y/N)?

On a sidenote:
I saw an episode of a documentary series about exchange students today, and one went ot the US. When the family went bowling, the youngest son had a shitfit because he lost all the time. The father gave him a dollar bill, the son took it and stopped crying.

What a great way to teach kids how to deal with frustration!

factually accurate


World-class swimmers swim five hours a day, spend at least five to ten hours a week lifting weights at the gym, observe a scientifically-prescribed diet which would send most regular human beings to an early grave because of overeating, and shave all exposed hair on their bodies in a process called shave-down before every major competition.

Sometimes I wonder why coaches do not put 6-year-old kids through a similar training regime.

It boggles the mind!

when icycalm calls another forum member a moron, that's ironic.

when ed oscuro says insomnia articles are well written, he's being sarcastic

Does every thread I post in have to immediately become about me? Don't you have anything more important going on in your life jpj?

Don't take me wrong, I don't mind the attention -- indeed I am enjoying it. The more fans the better. I am just sayin'.

Don't blame him, a single critical post on his forums may cause him to commit seppuku (japanesu for suicide)

*This thread is officially now an icycalm thread*

Todays topic: icycalm broke into my house and took my stuff


One day I woke up and my house had been robbed. I'm not 100% sure, but it must have been icycalm. The scoundrel!

That's actually pretty cool of icycalm. I was more lenient when you joined the 2D Gaming Forum and against my better judgement decided to give you a chance and even tried to be nice to you at first, and look how that turned out.

I would have immediately banned you too Ceph, and Twiddle, and Shoe-sama and more than half the posters of this forum, if any of you tried to register in my forum.

I have an excuse too. I don't want you to be distracted by having to post in two forums at the same time. Because if you are posting in my forum, who will fill this place with... your posts?

I have a feeling icycalm's forum is really a blog in disguise, where only one person can voice his opinion.

The only people who can voice their opinions in my forum are people I respect.

And yes, naturally, there are very few of them. From this forum, it is people like Macaw, JoshF, zinger, FrederikJurk, Randorama, Dale, and a few others, who occasionally drop by and chat about things.

Just as I only have discussions with a few people at a time in real-life, so it is in my forum. Besides, any serious discussion of any kind is impossible when everyone and their mother can throw in a random comment whenever they feel like it, and when no one is required to respect anyone else, or have any kind of manners.

At the end of the day, I'd rather be talking about things with three intelligent human beings, than with a zoo full of chattering monkeys.

You are just saying that because he's gay for you.

NB, I don't hate icycalm. He amuses me.

That is exactly what you expect of people who post in your netto-homu (that's japanesu for net-home)

Here's the answer to Rob's question:



Learning to pay homage.-- Men have to learn to pay homage no less than to feel contempt. Anyone who breaks new paths and who has led many others onto new paths, discovers with some amazement how clumsy and poor these people are in their capacity for expressing gratitude -- and how rarely gratitude achieves expression at all. It almost seems that whenever gratitude wants to speak, she begins to gag, clears her throat, and falls silent before she has got out a word. The way in which a thinker get some notion of the effects of his ideas and of their transforming, revolutionary power, is almost a comedy; at times it seems as if those who have felt this effect actually feel insulted and as if they could express what they consider their threatened self-reliance only by -- bad manners. Whole generations are required merely to invent a polite convention for thanks; and it is only very late that we reach the moment when gratitude acquires a kind of spirit and genius. By then, there is usually also someone who becomes the recipient of great gratitude, not only for the good he himself has done but above all for the treasure of what is best and highest that has gradually been accumulated by his predecessors.

--Friedrich Nietzsche, The Gay Science
