*Proof That The World Is Nuts** ** *
*In Lebanon , men are legally allowed to have sex with animals,
but the animals must be female. Having sexual relations with a
male animal is punishable by death. ** *
*(Like THAT makes sense.)
In Bahrain , a male doctor may legally examine a woman's
genitals, but is prohibited from looking directly at them during
the examination. He may only see their reflection in a mirror.

Muslims are banned from looking at the genitals of a corpse.
This also applies to undertakers. The sex organs of the deceased
must be covered with a brick or piece of wood at all times.
The penalty for masturbation in Indonesia is decapitation.
(Much worse than 'going blind!')
There are men in Guam whose full-time job is to travel the
countryside and deflower young virgins, who pay them for the
privilege of having sex for the first time
Reason: under Guam law, it is expressly forbidden for virgins to

In Hong Kong , a betrayed wife is legally allowed to kill her
adulterous husband, but may only do so with her bare hands. *
*The husband's illicit lover, on the other hand, may be killed
in any manner desired.
( Ah! Justice! )
Topless saleswomen are legal in Liverpool , England - but only
in tropical fish stores.
( But of course! )
In Cali , Colombia , a woman may only have sex with her husband,
and the first time this happens, her mother must be in the room
to witness the act.
(Makes one shudder at the thought.)
In Santa Cruz , Bolivia , it is illegal for a man to have sex
with a woman and her daughter at the same time.
(I presume this was a big enough problem that they had to pass
In Maryland , it is illegal to sell condoms from vending
machines with one exception: Prophylactics may be dispensed from
a vending machine only 'in places where alcoholic beverages are
sold for consumption on the premises.'

if you haven't played Bioshock for awhile, chances are you have probably forgotten just how good it is. I decided to have a go at obtaining all it's acheivments in honor of it's greatness. i soon found that unless u are a gqaming god, that won't be the case! Most of the acheivments can be earned with a little hard work and persistance but other are just a slap in the face
Not only are some of the acheivments requiring you to complete the story multiple times but if you don't get it perfectly right, it will not count and you will either have to reload your progress or if you are unlucky like me, have to go through another story mode.
One example of this (btw if you haven't played Bioshock before, this will seem like gibberish but bare with me), you will be required to collect or invent all 53 tonics in the game, which, though incredibly frustrating, is possible. The problem with this is after finishing Cohen's masterpiece in Fort Frolic, you can choose to let him live or attack and kill him.
If you let him live, you will be able to acsess his private quarters(which also acts as an acheivment). Inside is all sorts of ammo and a tonic. However, if you choose to kill him, you will obtain a key that will open a small chest in Fort Frolic which contains (you guessed it) another tonic.
This seems fine and all but the only problem is if you let him live, you cannot obtain the key to the chest and if you kill him, you are locked out of his private quarters and unable to gain both the acheivment and tonic.
If that wasen't enough to boil the blood, twist your mind around this, one of the few acheivments that i am yet to obtain (and i envy anyone who has) is the "Brass balls" acheivment. This requires you to complete Bioshock on HARD and not use a Vita-chamber ONCE. If anyone knows how that is possible , please tell me cause on hard, it usually takes me two attempts to down a big daddy.
These acheivments take away from the fun of a game. I am not an avid acheivment hunter but there are only 4 games i have ever strived to complete all acheivments in (Oblivion:sucsess)(The Darkness)(COD4 and Bioshock) Is it too much to ask that they offer acheivments that are possible or that don't require us to complete the game multiple times?

As of late, very few of the avaliable original XBL downloadable games have been of poor choice. Halo was a given as it practically launched the system, yet they still overlook perfectly suitable xbox games to place in average to mediocre games in their place.
Classic games like Doom 3, Max Payne, KOTOR series and many of the Tony Hawk and Tom Clancy series to boot would make excellent additions to the marketplace and would allow gamers to experience the fun and exciting gameplay from the past as well as the games of today.
If you have any suggestions of XBOX games that should be downloadable for the 360, please let me know.
