and how would YOU define it? dont troll on forums, give your opinion instead of stating.

I wasn’t trolling; I was serious.

To me, happiness is having what I need and getting what I want. Pleasure here on earth and peace of mind.

I hate Gangnam Style. When I found out it wasn’t about Gundams, I quickly clicked the X.

I think that racism should be banned.

Racism is bullying and bullying is wrong.

Mitt, is that YOU?

How can I be Mitt if I am against racism?

BECAUSE: just like Mitt, YOU flip-flop.

Earlier, ya responded to what ViolentAJ said: “At this stage in history, we ought to realize that racism will never go away, and that separation of the races is probably the best solution to this issue.”….w/ this: “I agree. Maybe we should put all of the inferior races into camps…”.

Being AGANST racism by separating them in camps is nothing more than BEING racist.

He was being sarcastic…

I don’t like racism, but I also don’t like paying taxes. I have to pay taxes, and I’ve found that to make it in this world it pays to be what many might call “racist”. Different races have different natures, and this causes conflict. In order to put an end to this conflict, the races must separate. No, I’m not advocating camps or the like, but simply geographical separation. This is also unrealistic, but probably more realistic than the races (at least Blacks and non-Blacks) ever getting along en mass.

Then the weaklings will die or live miserable lives as victims. Sad but true. This is nature.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Bullying isn't right.

Bullying is natural and happens in the animal kingdom. Victims of bullies need to stand p and become capable of hurting the bullies; that is the only way to deter them. Meet force with force.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Racism should be allowed.

Hate speech is OK with me; hiring discrimination is not, and other forums of discrimination hurt, and make people want to retaliate. I prefer people to be open about how they think though, so that I may act accordingly.

At this stage in history, we ought to realize that racism will never go away, and that separation of the races is probably the best solution to this issue.

Topic: Serious Discussion / is killing yourself cowardly

Depends on how you look at it. In America “judeo-Christian society”, it is seen as a sin and taking the “easy way out”. In places like Japan, however, it is seen as the noble and honorable thing to do.

I’ve thought about it, but it is fear that keeps me from doing it.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Feminism and Sexual Equality

Equality is a joke. We are not equal. There is no such thing as equality.

In my idea of a perfect world, all people would be treated with respect and judged on merit rather than race, religion, nationality, or gender, but in reality, this isn’t the case.

Topic: Game Programming / How to stop inner animation

I would make a class for all objects that need to stop running/playing when the game is paused. Have a conditional check so that if the game is paused, the object will stop playing, and if the game is unpaused, the object will begin playing again. In your library, have your keyframe movieclips have a base class of this class that you created. That’s how I do things in my games.

Topic: Game Programming / Can making a game with AS2 be justified?

It really depends on the scale of the game, the type of game, the developer, etc. People still make wonderful games in AS2 and crap in AS3. I’d advise moving on to AS3 because it makes OOP easier, is stricter (which is a pain at first, but makes things easier in the long run), and more processor-efficient, but if you know AS2 and can design a good game with it, then go for it.

Topic: Game Programming / How to make a timer?

Right, setInterval and clearInterval is one way. Another way is using an onEnterFrame function, incrementing a variablr each frame, then dividing this value by the framerate of your game.

If you choose to move to AS3, AS3 has a Timer class which makes things very simple.

Topic: Game Programming / does anyone feel like they NEED Flash?

I need both FlashDevelop and Flash. I prefer coding in FlashDevelop’s IDE, but I need Flash for creating vector images, making things easier (using linkage and MovieClips), and making menus design trivial. I know that it’s bad design practice, but it does make life zounds easier.

Topic: Game Programming / [AS3] Kong API

I’m trying to add High scores in my game, and I realize that when I add the Kong API, it makes my menu freeze. Buttons stop working, music does not play, and I cannot proceed on with the game.

I’m working with the API directly in my .fla (not in external .as files). Has this happened to anyone else? If so, how did you correct it?
