Quote from: SlowPokemon on August 30, 2016, 02:40:54 PMWhat's the youngest age it's acceptable for a 20 year old to be involved with

From Dude:

Thanks Dude.
Hahaha usually it's the girls that get that unwanted attention and it's creepy. Same advice for both.

There are way too many people who comment on girls who work in gamestop, ehh -.-

The real fun in those games is to play them without any help. If you've already watched a playthrough, maybe that would suck out the fun? I read the manga before I played OoT and I still enjoyed it with most of the plot spoiled.

I think the new Zelda games lack that sort of challenge or maybe I'm just getting smarter lol
Quote from: Maelstrom on August 29, 2016, 08:54:38 AMI need some music advice that's basically just throwing my thoughts out there and idk if anyone can give me advice.
I am seriously considering a music minor, despite how badly it goes with a Biochem major, but I fould out a lot about it today, and I'm not so sure, but I'm still kind of torn.
You see, there's some requirements I'm not as much a fan of; I have to take 4 semisters of music leasons, which are, as expected, not cheap by any stretch of the immagiination, take 2 years of music history (while I'd find this intersting, I'd rather take more theory/other stuff), and be in 2 ensambles, which also sucks because they won't have apiano ensamble until next year, and that's not even a certainty, AND, to get into those ensamlbes, I need to audition, and with some piano literature. That would not be a problem, but I havn't doen any piano lit in quite a few years (shame on me, I know).
So, with all those complains, why am I still considering it? Well, it's a music minor, AND I'd need to "test" into each music class I take without being a music major or minor. Yes, you heard that right. Every class. I just had to take a painfully easy one to get into music theory 1.
So, yeah. That's what's been going through my mind.

Phone post? Anyway go for it. It's really something else to be taking any sort of class at the college level, but maybe wait until your second semester at least to get a feel for a workload to see if you can handle putting more time into it.

Hehehe I had two minors in college and I think that was worth every penny. It was also the first time I got to take art lessons from someone who actually had an MFA and I learned a lot. Improved my drawing skills by a million points!
Quote from: Oronoco on August 25, 2016, 04:13:19 PMIt was nice out again today, so I grabbed a salad and took a walk to the park where I normally spend a lot of time. But when I got there, the whole place was surrounded by fence, my usual bench was gone, and a bunch of men were feeding all of my favorite trees in the world into a giant tree-shredder.

I really wanted to have a movie moment where I hopped the fence and chained myself to one of the trees and yelled something about taking away my favorite cherry trees where I used to go to clear my mind and eat my lunches and hammock and read and make memories taking pictures every spring when the cherry blossoms come out and spend hours calling my friends and family that I can't speak with in person. But I just kinda got super sad and watched the trees get shred to pieces. I didn't even get to eat my salad.

I could never shred trees for a living. Send me to hell instead.

I hope they didn't destroy it for some stupid reason, but maybe there was an infestation in the trees? They cut them down here when there really is a problem with them, never to "just make room for other things." Anyway, I hope you can find other trees nearby. I can't think of trees with prettier flowers in the spring than cherry blossoms. Especially the ones that look like little stars.
Quote from: Bloop on August 24, 2016, 12:21:19 PMthere's a heat wave in the netherlands or something (although some of you may probably top this but whatever)
It's been about 33° C (91,4° F) here today, and yesterday it was about 34,5° C (94,3° F).

Good news is that because of the heat, I actually have less school tomorrow. Yay \o/

Had hotter weather, but I have air conditioning...I heard most of Europe didn't?

Quote from: Pianist Da Sootopolis on August 24, 2016, 11:31:59 PMMe being the hard lib I am, I wrote my senator (Ron Wyden) about his approval of the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP).
He wrote me back, but I'm not sure how to feel, since he spelled my last name (Richter) as "Lichter".

*some kind of joke about engrish I'm too busy to make*
I remember being depressed for a few days after reading books on different theories the universe is going to end, back in high school. I don't know why I thought it was depressing as a kid, it doesn't bother me at all now. Everything I know is going to be long dead before that happens lol

I was going to post something from Majora's Mask to here but I won't spoil it until you play it hahaha

Just get it secondhand like I did. I paid $31 for a hard copy and it was really something. They don't make Nintendo games like that anymore.
This is also great news for me because I hardly ever battle wild Pokemon. I've already almost all possible Pokemon in X and I'm breeding/trading with friends to get everything else. I just went to Olimar's friend safari to see what Pokemon with hidden abilities I didn't have yet. I'm sure I got the virus from a wild Maractus there. I don't think I've even battled 20,000 wild Pokemon in this game.

Quote from: SlowPokemon on August 17, 2016, 06:16:27 AMI run into a shiny like once every few games

Over my many many LeafGreen files, I found a shiny Rattata and (of all things) Articuno, though because I'm absolutely an idiot I deleted the file and it's no longer in this world.

Also one time in Emerald at the Battle Tent where you have rental Pokémon, one of the rentals for me was a shiny Aron. I was like laughing and very sad because I couldn't keep it.

That's why I was too scared to try Battle Pyramid hahaha. I heard about people running into shinies there they couldn't catch. Younger me was so weird...
Quote from: Maelstrom on August 17, 2016, 09:02:01 AMIs it not curved?
I have a good friend at Princeton and he says the top grades on just about every final is 50-60, before the curve. Being able to pass a class is only dependant on your ability to do better than your peers.

Lol not undergrad and not an Ivy where they pass more students than they should so they don't feel bad about who they've admitted (their "investments"). I knew a kid at Yale who admitted he fucked up so badly in his first year, but ended up with B's in everything. My professor who went to Harvard admits they bump up grades like this too.

Quote from: NocturneOfShadow on August 16, 2016, 07:44:27 AMyou diabolical villian

Wait until they get a 5 31 IV Froakie with Torrent hahahahaha

"Pokérus has a 3 in 65,536 or approximately a 1 in 21,845 chance of being generated on a Pokémon, either wild or bred, effectively making this rarer than a shiny Pokémon, which have a 3 in 24,576, or around 1 in 8,192 chance to be found wild or hatched. Through battling or capturing this wild Pokémon, players could get this helpful virus onto their own Pokémon, and subsequently spread it around. Due to the overwhelmingly low chance of encountering the virus (about 1/3 of the chance to encounter a Shiny Pokémon), and the fact that most would not even recognize a Pokémon with the virus and may flee from it, many players don't have a Pokémon with the virus."
Quote from: Altissimo on August 15, 2016, 01:42:51 PMim doing graduate assistantship at college and like helping out with classes n shit its a Fun Time

*clap clap clap*

I got Pokerus without cheating or trading for it from Olimar's friend safari! I haven't even seen a shiny pokemon in the wild since Ruby (red Gyarados doesn't count) so this is really big for me. Now to infect all my breeding rejects to make them seem desirable for others haha. Hidden ability Froakies and Chimchars mean an invasion of infected frogs and monkeys.

Orgy once they get out of their cocoons I guess...

Today I learned when Atlas moths don't have mouths. They lose them when emerging from their cocoons as adults. They starve to death within days because of it. How cruel!

this is why creationism is a huge fail
