      With the election less than 2 weeks away, how about a topic on what's different in every state: the

      propositions!

      At least, I hope that it's different for every state.
      In California, there are 12 propositions up for grabs.

      From: California Propositions


      Prop. 1A:
      A measure to fund a rail line extending from Los Angeles to San Francisco
      Prop. 2: Regards the ethical treatment of livestock
      Prop. 3: Funding for children's hospitals
      Prop. 4: Parental notification of teenage pregnancy
      Prop. 5: Funding rehabilitation programs for nonviolent offenders and parolees
      Prop. 6: Places additional penalities for violent crimes, particularly gang-related ones.
      Prop. 7: A measure to make the state get half of its energy needs from renewable ones by 2025
      Prop. 8: Gay Marriage Ban
      Prop. 9: Expands upon the rights of victims of crime
      Prop. 10: A bond measure to promote alternative fuels
      Prop. 11: I don't know how to summarize this one in one sentence.
      Prop. 12: A measure that assists veterans with buying property.

      My opinions on the matter and what I'll put on my ballot 11 days from now:
      Yes on: 1A, 7, 10
      No on: 8
      The rest I have no particular interest in.

      What do the other states, in comparison, have to offer in their propositions this November 4th?

    • Oh, southerners never cease to amaze me

      ReGZeta

      And by amaze, I mean disappoint.

      Southerner thinks Barack is an "A-rab"

      And to think, the presidental elections consider the southern states vital to securing a victory. Oh well, I'm sure the overwhelming majority of the south is better than that. At least, I hope so come November 4th.

    • So I was reading up on the medal count..

      11 years ago

      ReGZeta

      ... on Yahoo's Front Page and I see a major bullshit moment here.

      USA may have more medals than China, but China has way more gold medals than USA.

      I for one, see that Gold has a bigger value than Silver and bronze put together.

      If gold has the same value as silver and bronze, why go for the gold? smiley10.gifsmiley10.gifsmiley11.gif

    • So I heard Barack...

      ...finally chose someone to be his Vice President.

      Well, I imagine he is a perfect compliment for Obama.
      And damn, that speech was a tearjerker.

      Obama for '08 peeps!

    • So I just came back from Comicon...

      11 years ago

      ReGZeta

      ...it's fucking awesome! Makes me wonder why I had hesitated to even go last year and the year before that.

      Pros:
      -I got to meet several celebrities
      - The dudes from Pure Pwnage
      - Some of the crew from Roosterteeth
      -The standards of cosplayers has risen to a great degree
      - While there were some sucky ones, the great ones were simply perfect.
      - Cosplay rule for fatties still apply: don't go as characters known to have a slim figure.
      -I got to play some kickass games that aren't even out yet!
      -Ghostbusters
      -Mega Man 9
      -Could've played the new Street Fighter, but the line was LLLLLOOOONNNNGGGG
      -In essence, I got to go to E3 AND Comicon at the same time!
      -Got some neat autographs from some celebs.
      -The San Diego mall is 6 stories tall! I had fun exploring that place.

      Cons:
      -$8 for a grilled chicken sandwich? Bitch please.
      -I felt really sorry for the bike taxi guys (Pedicabs). Must've been tiring lugging around 200 pounds in a city with a bunch of hilly streets.

      Tipped him great though.
      -I had several oppurtunities to get this great cosplayer of a Star Trek uniform and I let it go. I'm kicking myself mentally right now.

      One thing's for sure, I'm definitely going next year.

      On a sidenote, as a free gift I got a set of magic the gathering cards. After spending 30 minutes in like the Upper Deck Booth and such, I have no clue how to play. But hey, at least I got free cards.

    • First taste of Halo 3

      11 years ago

      ReGZeta

      So I just came back from a huge gamer cafe that opened up in a mall a while ago.

      Of all the games I could've played there, I chose Halo 3. That, and I notoriously suck at Guitar Hero 3. I <3 the sniper rifle and shotgun. My favorite weapons in the previous games and I love them now. Although, the only kills I seem to be getting are from the weapon bashes or whatever they're called. (It's the B button)

      I wished I coulda asked someone how to design my character, Oh well, maybe next time.

      Normally, I woulda chosen a strategy game, but I only signed up for an hour. IMO, games like Supreme Commander and Sins of a Solar Empire takes at least 3 to be enjoyable.

      Anyhow, it's a little more than a month away till Comicon 2008. Expect tons of new pictures coming in. You few people who wander into my profile. smiley8.gif

    • So I met a girl today, among other news.

      11 years ago

      ReGZeta

      This was when I got finished seeing that Zohan movie. (I want my 2 hours and $10.50 back)

      I decided to go to Starbuck's for a caffeinne boost (the movie bored me greatly) and there's a certain procedure that they do when there are a bunch of customers around and it's labeling the cups with the customer's name on them. Well, when my name came up, I spent like 2 minutes with the barista giving her my name to put on the cup.

      How it went:
      -What's your name?
      Hieu. (Phonectically: Hugh)
      -H.U.E?
      H.I.E.U.
      -H.I.U.E...
      No, it's E.U.
      -H.E.U...

      So basically it went on for a couple of minutes untill I gave her my credit card and she went all like "Oh!" and chuckled for a bit about how she overthought my name & saying it's looks cool. smiley1.gif
      I think I cracked a smile that time around. Normally, I would've been agitated but I think I like it.
      Come to think of it, it's been the most meaningful conversation with a girl since like ever.

      Other news:
      -Zohan movie: 4/10
      -I heard bad things 'bout the love guru, so I'm stayin out of that.
      -I don't know about the Hulk. I find the Hulk(the character) to be a real liability, with great strength and massive anger issues.
      But, I'll probably see it.
      -Definetly seeing "Wall-E". Hell, anything that features robots = automatic win
      -Comicon 2008 is a go, but I have to go alone. Everyone said next year probably. It's always next year every year, so I'm going on a road trip to San Diego County in 110+ degree weather in about a month.
      - I recently bought "The Movies" and the expansion pack for like $30. I got all the mechanics down, but now I'm finding out is the real hard part is coming up with characters and a ongoing plot. Maybe the trip to Comicon will release some creative juices smiley11.gif

      Edit: Wow, I've haven't been gone on RT for a long time. My karma points are gone!

    • Can it be Comicon tiem nao?

      I come home after classes and I see Clinton winning all the big states.

      I say, wtf? Obama is what the White House needs: some new blood. Otherwise it's gonna be back to back Clinton-Bush presidencies.

    • Damn you astroturf

      ReGZeta

      So I thought nothing of it until I looked up my bank account holdings and saw that I was short 15 dollars. Well, apparently I had forgotten about a site I used to visit : Classmates.com.

      A wate of my time and money as there is nothing for me there. Oh sure, there are lists of my old high school friends, but I don't want to pay for a service that is non-existent.

      Same with Reunion.com and other alumi sites. I shan't pay for their "service" when sites like MySpace, Facebook and RT are free.

      Besides, why pay for a friendship that was free to begin with? The nerve of those sites.

      Now if you excuse me, my time shall be occupied with the latest Sims expansion smiley0.gif

      If you don't like being asked this kind of thing I apologise in advance, but I'm in the final round of my first "popularity" contest and I'm sure I need all the help I can get from the people on my friends list. If you'd be kind enough to go here and vote for me I'd appreciate it.

      Thanks in advance if you do; and sorry if you already voted for me and you get this message.
