Holy Fucking Shit!
July 7th 2003, 23:21 CEST by Charles

New study finds out an amazing thing!  Gamers are actually normal people!

Some highlights:

College gamers are not necessarily male -- or anti-social hermits.


Often, he says, groups of students stop to watch the game.  "What we found is that it's a very social activity," Jones says.


"There's this stereotype of game slackers wasting time, goofing off, that really isn't valid," says Marcia Grabowecky, a Northwestern University psychologist who has studied visual perception in humans, including those who play computer and video games.


Okay, so yeah.  This isn't really news to any of us.  So why waste everyone's time with this topic, right?  Well, I figured since we are always talking about games, perhaps we could use this as a springboard to talk about other 'normal' things we do.  Think of it as a sort of 'Meet the Crappers' thread.  We all know about what games people here like, but what about other things?  You have kids?  Are you a kid?  What are you doing in school, or for a job?  Where do you live?  What are your hobbies?  

Might be an interesting change in pace, for once.

Was LT the droid off Battleship Galactica?

So, how do you like the game so far? Was it worth the $59.95?

Inside America, no one cares about your arguments.

A football game takes closer to 3 hours to finish, not 4.

We are OK in a misguided, sadist way.
We are OK in a disabled veteran's way.
We are OK.

This reminds me of that line out of GTA "football teaches important American values, like taking land by force, and wearing tight pants".

Once you have a bass pod, you don't need no steekin' guitars.

 


I was *this* close to buying one of thems (I have a line 6 guitar amp and am in love with it), but there would appear to be no delay. None. That is fucking bollocks, ass-bollocks even. Do you know of a decent multi-effects bass rig with some quality delay?

So you're saying Nocturne would be an identical game if you were a hippie shooting flowers out of your flower power gun at 'the man' rather than a badass kicking the crap out of demons?

I Seriously made 400 bucks this way. I won’t lie.

(Need Easy Money? Then READ THIS!!)
HOW TO TURN $6 INTO $6,000!!!!!! READING THIS COULD CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
I found this on a bulletin board and decided to try it. A little while back, I was browsing through newsgroups, just like you are now, and came across an article similar to this that said you could make thousands of dollars within weeks with only an initial investment of $6.00! So I thought, Yeah right, this must be a scam, but like most of us, I was curious, so I kept reading. Anyway, it said that you send $1.00 to each of the 6 names and address stated in the article. You then place your own name And address in the bottom of the list at #6, and post the article in at least 200 newsgroups. (There are thousands) No catch, that was it. So after thinking it over, and talking to a few people first, I thought about trying it. I figured: what have I got to lose except 6 stamps and $6.00, right? Then I invested the measly $6.00. Well GUESS WHAT!!... Within 7 days, I
Started getting money in the mail! I was shocked! I figured it would end soon, but the money just kept coming in. In my first week, I made about $25.00. By the end of the second week I had made a total of over $1,000.00! In the third week I had over $10,000.00 and it's still growing. This is now my fourth week and I have made a total of just over $42,000.00 and it's still coming in rapidly. It's certainly worth $6.00, and 6 stamps, I have spent more than that on the lottery!! Let me tell you how this works and most importantly, why it works....Also, make sure you print a copy of this article NOW, so you can get the information off of it as you need it. I promise you that if you follow the directions exactly, that you will start making more money than you thought possible by doing something so easy!

Suggestion: Read this entire message carefully! (Print it out or download it.) Follow the simple directions and watch the money come in! It's easy. It's legal. And, your investment is only $6.00 (Plus postage)
IMPORTANT: This is not a rip-off; it is not indecent; it is not illegal; and it is virtually no risk - it really works!!!! If all of the following instructions are adhered to, you will receive extraordinary dividends.

PLEASE NOTE: Please follow these directions EXACTLY, and $50,000 or more can be yours in 20 to 60 days. This program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants. Please continue its success by carefully adhering to the instructions.

You will now become part of the Mail Order business. In this business your product is not solid and tangible, it's a service. You are in the business of developing Mailing Lists. Many large corporations are happy to pay big bucks for quality lists. However, the money made from the mailing lists is secondary to the income which is made from people like you and me asking to be included in that list. Here are the 4 easy steps to success:

STEP 1: Get 6 separate pieces of paper and write the following on each piece of paper; PLEASE PUT ME ON YOUR MAILING

LIST. Now get 6 US $1.00 bills and place ONE inside EACH of the 6 pieces of paper so the bill will not be seen through the envelope (to prevent thievery). Next, place one paper in each of the 6 envelopes and seal them. You should now have 6 sealed envelopes, each with a piece of paper stating the above

phrase, your name and address, and a $1.00 bill. What you are doing is creating a service. THIS IS ABSOLUTELY LEGAL! You are requesting a legitimate service and you are paying for it! Like most of us I was a little skeptical and a little worried about the legal aspects of it all. So I checked it out with the U.S. Post Office (1-800-725-2161) and they confirmed that it is indeed legal! Mail the 6 envelopes to the following addresses:
Mailing Adresses

 1.Stephanie Hicks
1283 Evening Canyon
Henderson NV 89014

2.Tia Loske
40 Hancock St.
Ft. Plain, NY 13339

3.Taylor Prutting
14203 Championship Lane
Houston Tx, 77069

4.Richard Horman
1731 Frost Ave.
Maplewood, MN 55109

5.Ryan Burice
7985 scudder way
Ballground, Ga. 30107

6.Brandon Clark
38 Borden Ave
Perry, NY 14530

STEP 2: Now take the #1 name off the list that you see above, move the other names up (6 becomes 5, 5 becomes 4, etc...) and add YOUR Name as number 6 on the list.

STEP 3: Change anything you need to, but try to keep this article as close to original as possible. Now, post your amended article to at least 200 newsgroups. (I think there are close to 24,000 groups) All you need is 200, but remember, the more you post, the more money you make! This is perfectly legal! If you have any doubts, refer to Title 18 Sec. 1302 & 1341 of the Postal lottery laws.
Keep a copy of these steps for yourself and, whenever you need money, you can use it again, and again.
PLEASE REMEMBER that this program remains successful because of the honesty and integrity of the participants and by their carefully adhering to the directions. Look at it this way. If you are of integrity, the program will continue and the money that so many others have received will come your way.
NOTE: You may want to retain every name and address sent to you, either on a computer or hard copy and keep the notes people send you. This VERIFIES that you are truly providing a service. (Also, it might be a good idea to wrap the $1 bill in dark paper to reduce the risk of mail theft.)
So, as each post is downloaded and the directions carefully followed, six members will be reimbursed for their participation as a List Developer with one dollar each. Your name will move up the list geometrically so that when your name reaches the #1 position you will be receiving thousands of dollars in CASH!!! What an opportunity for only $6.00 ($1.00 for each of the first six people listed above) Send it now, add your own name to the list and you're in business!
---DIRECTIONS ----- FOR HOW TO POST TO NEWSGROUPS------------ Step 1) You do not need to re-type this entire letter to do your own posting. Simply put your cursor at the beginning of this letter and drag your cursor to the bottom of this document, and select 'copy' from the edit menu. This will copy the entire letter into the computer's memory.
Step 2) Open a blank 'notepad' file and place your cursor at the top of the blank page. From the 'edit' menu select 'paste'. This will paste a copy of the letter into notepad so that you can add your name to the list.
Step 3) Save your new notepad file as a .txt file. If you want to do your postings in different settings, you'll always have this file to go back to.
Step 4) Use Netscape or Internet explorer and try searching for various newsgroups (on-line forums, message boards, chat sites, discussions.)
Step 5) Visit these message boards and post this article as a new message by highlighting the text of this letter and selecting paste from the edit menu. Fill in the Subject, this will be the header that everyone sees as they scroll through the list of postings in a particular group, click the post message button. You're done with your first one! Congratulations...THAT'S IT! All you have to do is jump to different newsgroups and post away, after you get the hang of it, it will take about 30 seconds for each newsgroup!
**REMEMBER, THE MORE NEWSGROUPS YOU POST IN, THE MORE MONEY YOU WILL MAKE!! BUT YOU HAVE TO POST A MINIMUM OF 200**
That's it! You will begin receiving money from around the world within days! You may eventually want to rent a P.O.Box due to the large amount of mail you will receive. If you wish to stay anonymous, you can invent a name to use, as long as the postman will deliver it.
**JUST MAKE SURE ALL THE ADDRESSES ARE CORRECT.**
Now the WHY part: Out of 200 postings, say I receive only 5 replies (a very low example). So then I made $5.00 with my name at #6 on the letter. Now, each of the 5 persons who just sent me $1.00 make the MINIMUM 200 postings, each with my name at #5 and only 5 persons respond to each of the original 5, that is another $25.00 for me, now those 25 each make 200 MINIMUM posts with my name at #4 and only 5 replies each, I will bring in an additional $125.00! Now, those 125 persons turn around and post the MINIMUM 200 with my name at #3 and only receive 5 replies each, I will make an additional $626.00! OK, now here is the fun part, each of those 625 persons post a MINIMUM 200 letters with my name at #2 and they each only receive 5 replies, that just made me $3,125.00!!! Those 3,125 persons will all deliver this message to 200 newsgroups with my name at #1 and if still 5 persons per 200 newsgroups react I will receive $15,625,00! With an original investment of only $6.00! AMAZING! When your name is no longer on the list, you just take the latest posting in the newsgroups, and send out another $6.00 to names on the list, putting your name at number 6 again. And start posting again. The thing to remember is: do you realize that thousands of people all over the world are joining the internet and reading these articles everyday?, JUST LIKE YOU are now!! So, can you afford $6.00 and see if it really works?? I think so... People have said, "e;what if the plan is played out and no one sends you the money? So what! What are the chances of that happening when there are tons of new honest users and new honest people who are joining the internet and newsgroups everyday and are willing to give it a try? Estimates are at 20,000 to 50,000 new users, every day, with thousands of those joining the actual internet.
Remember: play FAIRLY and HONESTLY and this will really work.

Fuck all that noise, at least you can play. I was playing through my Mesa Boogie dual-rectifier setup, and something messed up. I don't know what happened, but I turned it off for a second, and then I turned it back on. It seemed to work, then the power just cut out. It's like it's unplugged or something, but it's damn-well plugged in. I don't crap about gear, so I don't know what could be wrong. Maybe a tube blew or something, but like I'd know.

Speaking of bass gear, after a long time of saving up and browsing stores with a pitiful expression, I've finally got my new toy.

It's no Marshall stack, but it does the job. Haven't tried it out with the Pod yet; I want to get a feel for its own sound first.

Yeah, that sounds like a blown tube, were you playing at silly-loud volumes? Since I only have SS equipment, I'm not 100% sure if thats your problem. Take out the tubes, if they are blackend or look different than when you got them, they're blown.

Caryn

That is damned cool, what type of bass you play?

So you're saying Nocturne would be an identical game if you were a hippie shooting flowers out of your flower power gun at 'the man' rather than a badass kicking the crap out of demons?

When it stopped working, it wasn't being played at a loud volume, actually. It hasn't had a problem being played loud the past couple of weeks, but then again, the 3 or 4 position on that volume knob is enough to kill someone.

HWF:

It's just a Fender J-bass (Mexican made, not American -- can't afford that yet), 4-string. I love it, though, especially since I've got it strung with Ernie Ball flatwounds right now, which give it a great mellow bottom tone.

I've also got a Washburn accoustic/electric that my dad gave me for my college graduation. I love that one, too...really rich tones, although I'm waiting for the strings I recently put on it to wear down a bit because I don't like their tone (way too bright).

I'd say take it down to a guitar shop, have em take a look, shouldn't be too costly.

Caryn

That is very cool, I'm currently using the Mexi P-bass. Is it just me or does Fender just cut a basball bat in half and call it a neck? Those things are massive. And the accoustic looks amazing, do you have any recordings using it?

Hooray for Flowerpants!

HWF,
Do you know of a decent multi-effects bass rig with some quality delay?

Sorry dude, I know nothing about effects.  All I ever had was a 10 quid distortion pedal :)

Caryn,
I'm waiting for the strings I recently put on it to wear down a bit because I don't like their tone (way too bright.

Weird.  Maybe it's just my crappy bass (and I think it is, but it's light which I like), but I've never had a set of strings last more than a couple of days before they became flat and lifeless.  When I was gigging, I could put it down to playing too hard (I've burst thumbs and broken strings), but recording on the computer, they still turn to shit by day 3.  

Nice amp, btw.  I assume you don't have neighbours :)  I'm curious how the POD sounds going through an amp, so give us an update when you let rip.

Actually, it seems thin to me because my other comparison is my Washburn Acoustic/electric, and that thing's neck is a LOT thicker than my Fender. I feel a lot more nimble on the Fender because of that when I switch.

mrbloo:

Actually, I do have neighbors below us, and I'm curious to know if it bugs them when I play. I doubt it does, as we apparently have the Sex Pistols living there (three people that look like they just walked out of the 80's punk scene) and I've heard guitar coming out of their apartment, too.

Hmm, I don't know. I've always felt like my hands are a little too small when I play the bass, and that I have to move them a lot more to get the reach that some others get on the neck. Maybe it's just that I've always played on a Fender so I've been conditioned. :)
