    • Evolution is a conspiracy

      8 years ago

      red_1st

      My friend who I don't get to see very often as she lives in London, has dropped a whopper on me. I know she is quite religous, much like where she is from cape town SA, but she has very modern views. So she is not like Carries mum.

      Ok so we were just chatting and catching up. She was telling me about how she went on a trip to the London museum. I asked her is she has seen certain things. I then asked if she saw the Darwin area. To which she replyed in the flatest tone with all seriousness. I would never see anything to do with him. I was shocked and asked why. So she went on to describe how
      "he destroyed the belief of god and started the downfall of man with his lies" I was a little shocked by this, as I never knew people still thought like this.
      I said, "You know that it has been proven through fossils, that his theories are correct"
      She repied "they are fake"
      well I could feel I was begining to lose it. "Are you telling me it is a 200 year conspiracy, that people ran around the world. Placing fake fossils all around the world"
      Again with a serious tone "If fossils were real, why are they not made out of bone"
      I almost laught at her, but decided to calmly tell herhow bones became fossils. She listened and only replyed when I finished "Fossils might be real, but that does not mean Darwin was right"
      I decided to change the subject, as I could see that our friendship could be in trouble if we continued to keep this topic going.

      Needless to say I now look at religous people with a little more suspicion sympathy

      Ok so I bought a new Samsung 40in le40m87bd for my pub. It was basically there to show the sky sports news channel and to show the F1, when it starts in 12 days (whoop).
      Anyway I had helped a mate try working out tuning in his Samsung 2 years ago, lets just say there was problems and leave it at that. So somehow I had completely forgotten about this nightmare err experience.
      Well I suddenly remembered it when I spent 2 hours trying to tune it in, because some clot at Samsung, decide it would be a great idea to have one button for tuning the Analogue channels and another button for tuning the Digital channels. Then thought it would be a better idea to place then at opposite ends of the remote/controller.

      Does this make any sense to anyone or have I reached the point in my life, where tech is starting to baffle me. Am I turning into my parents. Where they look of technology is a large hideous, scary beast that speaks double dutch and points and jeers at them or is it that Samsung software and interface design is horribly over complicated.

      Ok so if you read my previous journal. You will see that I managed to figure out how to get back online using my Dongole(I still think it is a perverted word). During the 2-3 months that I have been offline I have increased my GS by around 10,000, with games like Left4Dead, Bioshock 2, Mass Effect 2, fable 2, Finishing off fallout 3 and Assassins creed 2. To name but a few, Now you will see these are some major titles and some huge time to hit 1000 on most of them.
      Well I lost all that offline GS, as I had to recover my GT because I had played some games on my mates console with my GT.

      But thats fine, I don't care I mean I get the pleasure of playing all those long long long games all over again.

      Oh Fucking JOY

      FUCK FUCK FUCK FUCKING HELL

    • Dongole power

      Sounds a bit rude, but honestly it's not. A dongole is an internet mobile communication device, which when plugged into a laptop or desktop will allow you to access the internet.(for those not in the know) A god send in my opinion, as not having access to the internet 100% of the time, due to work and travel, can be a complete nightmare. As many will agree!

      So how about playing you Xbox connected to XBL anywhere, anytime. Sounds very appealing, but ask any salesman that sells Dongoles and they will tell you, Sorry a Dongole will not be able to connect your Xbox to XBL. Ask Microsoft and they will tell you, that there will not be enough Bandwidth to connect you to XBL.
      Well they are all wrong, plus I played for about 2 hours and used around 200 MB of allowance, which is not bad. Also The lag was hardly noticeable, I would say about half a second, it was not until I started connecting to american hosts. Still usable, but I could feel the lag.

      To connect to XBL in this way you will need

      1x xbox 360 and all cables
      1x TV and all cables
      1x laptop desktop
      1x Dongole (check with the network provider, what is the signal strength is in your area)
      1x ethernet cable

      set up your Xbox and TV up as normal, connect your Xbox to your laptop/desktop with the ethernet cable. insert your dongole into Your laptop/desktop and connect to the internet.

      Click on start-network-network and sharing center-manage network connections, right click on your dongole connection, click on properties.
      Then set up like this dongole.jpg

      Then click ok. reset your connection. then switch on your xbox and sign in.

      If anyone has problems with this send me a message.

      Let me start by saying I have been a fan of the Aliens and Predator series from the first to the last including all the AvP films. I have also played the first game, but not the second(didn't have a PC at the time) So I was looking forward to this game and playing all three character again, but like so many sequels would this be the biggest let down.

      IMO no, ok the first cutscene could have been better, but so far thats my only complaint (lets be honest if I wanted a game with amazing cutscenes, I would play/watch MGS) so I will not even go on about it. The gameplay is real meat of this game and it delivers it in spades. The marine weapons feel meaty and well balanced. I found myself swapping weapons, to match the areas I was in. Instead of powering through with just one weapon.
      The marine campaigns environment and atmosphere of the game freaked me out and not freaked me out just a little. Am talking considering moving my TV and Xbox into the bathroom and playing sat on the toilet, as at any moment I might fill my pants freaked me out. This game has brought the chill of Alien (movie 1) and the claustrophobic feeling of Aliens (movie 2)

      I just finished the marine campaign and going to start the Alien one after writing this, so I would like everyone that wants, to add what you think or thought of the game. Lets try and keep it friendly, as there are bound to be people that might not like it the way you or I like it.

      Just remember, because your bad at a game, does not mean it is a bad game.

      Now am off to burst through some poor sods chest.

      1-If you're ugly,
      stop acting like you don't know it.
      The captions under you picture that says
      "top model pose"
      "sexy bitch"
      "arnt i hot"
      doesn't convince anyone.

      2-To the people who have like 25,000 friends,
      are you serious?
      Nobody in this universe can keep up with that many friends.
      You're stupid.
      Go play in traffic.

      3-Don't ever post pictures and say
      "OMG, I'm so ugly"
      "OMG,I'm so fat"
      because if you were,
      you wouldn't post them.

      4-Nobody cares about threats over the internet.
      Don't try to act hardcore with the keyboard.
      Fighting online is like racing in the special olympics;
      even if you win,
      you're still retarded.

      5-Making 20 bulletins a day
      about how you have new pictures
      and begging people to comment on them is pathetic.
      Make the bulletin once if you have to,
      and those who actually care about you
      will comment on your pics.

      6-If all your pictures look the same,
      don't post them all.
      Please put some variety in your pics.
      Nobody wants to see your face
      8 different ways.

      7-Who really cares if
      I don't accept you as a friend?
      MOVE ON!!!
      Don't send me another request or message asking
      "what's up with you not adding me?"
      I don't want you as a friend;
      that's what's up!

      8-Little 6th classers who have bebos
      and look like sluts,
      go somewhere else
      because nobody wants you here.!!!

      9-If you have decided to read this,
      you are a true bebo Friend.
      Real friends read their bulletins.

      10-I say you go and pass this on
      and maybe it will finally get through people's brains
      (if they have them).

      11-And if you open a msg and it says something like
      "repost this in 100 seconds or a ghost will rape your dog tonight,"
      IT'S NOT REAL!
      QUIT BEING AN IDIOT!!!!!!!!


      I think someone is pissed off!!!

      Saw that video when it came out. I thought it had less to do with the creative process and more to do with media distribution. Given that our planned comic is meant to pander to a very niche group, I don't think it will be a concern.

      Also, I posted Comic #0: Proof of Concept in the group forum. What do you think?
