Flash game saves are only a couple kb so it wouldn’t take up much memory right? If kong had some sort of API people could put in their games where it would back up users saves to kongregate servers that would be amazing. You would be able to access all your game saves just by logging into your account. You can pick up where you left off on any computer and keep your data if your HDD fails.

I just looked at my chat.Kongregate.com folder, and the size it takes on my disk is apparently 21.4 MB. If that were to be taken as an average for every account created (roughly 8,600,000 as of this post) for necessary space, then that would require about 175 TB of storage. I’m not going to comment on the practicality of this, as the userbase is constantly increasing, and so are the number of games, so this amount will only increase over time (again, it’s not a case of me having more data than someone else per se, but rather is I need that much then everyone else should also have the same max amount, so my numbers are based off of that).

However, if it were a Kong+ feature, then that’d be something interesting, but then again, it would require the recoding of every game on the site for them to work with it, and that’s just not feasible. And you should backup your data anyways, so you shouldn’t have to be too worried about a crash.

Most accounts are abandoned or alts, and most of the rest are much less active then you.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Would you visit a nudist camp,,how shy are you?

I would only be able to do it if there was at least a couple dozen people who I never met and EVERYONE was naked. No I couldn’t enjoy myself skinny dipping with friends at all and only with strangers if there was a lot of strangers and I was in a safe position.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Proof of God

I don’t have to even read through this thread to KNOW that all the religious peoples proof was is stuff like “the bible” or “insert name here said” or other things like that that aren’t even solid proof but just rumors and opinions. Christianity and other similar religions are supported more by faith rather then proof if you weren’t aware.

Topic: Serious Discussion / How do you think the world would be if:

It’s very hard to predict what would happen because you have to think about it back from the very start. If everyone was agnostic so many things could have changed along the way that things would probably be beyond our comprehension. You might say that without religion there would be less violence, division between the people, and no dark age but you can’t say that for sure. Religion is one of the biggest things that keeps people from killing other people… and also sometimes the biggest reason people DO kill.

Average police respons times are over 8 to 10 minutes. A robber could have broke in, stole a few things, and get a good head start by the time police arrive.

Correct. But if you were a robber and you broke into someones house when they weren’t home and an alarm was going off, would you realistically go through their house and steal as much as you can then run, or would you just run and go after a different house without an alarm instead? I doubt you would even think twice about getting the fuck out of there. More professional robbers would probably stick around and be in and out of there with tons of valuables within minutes, but most people who break into a house would run off scared to death.

Maybe my post will be a lesson to all amateur robbers!
Although that’s not necessarily a good thing I just did that…

The point is an alarm that is nothing but a loud sound is better then nothing. No shit it’s not as good as an alarm that calls the police or has some other kind of defense to it. But the thing is you often have to pay extra for an alarm with those kind of services, a straight up alarm only costs a couple bucks and is a HUGE help more then not having an alarm at all. If your 8 year old son was walking home from school and a fat 50 year man grabs him and pulls him into his van by his backpack, would you prefer him be wearing the one without an alarm going off?

Without death, there is no life. If death didn’t exist life wouldn’t be appreciated or even really truly exist in the same sense.

They are abused and that’s what makes them stupid. They are sometimes a little funny the first time around but they get old fast. Also, it’s all opinions.

a land mine sounds better.

>both make a loud noise.

>both don’t contact police.

>both will scare the shit out of burglars.

>both are easy to install.

>only one has the ability to do physical harm.

Right. Because putting a landmine in a childs backpack to kill the guy who grabs it TOTALLY won’t kill the child too….

Topic: Off-topic / Drugs are good for your mind

You are correct they can be good for your mind if used in moderation.

Waiting to see someone freak out and say all drugs are bad just because they were told that’s the way it is when they were young.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Howcome we don't resort to cannibalism?

Point to one guy and say he is next to be eaten he will choose a guy and attack him and try to eat him. Before you know it it’s an all out war and every man is for himself because most people have a desire to survive. It’s much easier to kill and eat something that won’t fight back at you…. animals and plants. One day at the end of the world we may have to resort to cannibalism but order won’t last very long, it will turn into chaos.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Africa

Whites were generally smarter and more educated then Africans and had a head start advantage. A weak scrawny white boy will win a battle against the tallest, most buff black man in the world as long as the white guy has a gun and knows how to aim and pull the trigger.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Prostitution

Makes sense. No reason prostitution should be illegal. It does the opposite from protecting people. The fact that it’s illegal means they have to hide it from authorities leaving the women open to abuse. Also making it illegal definitely isn’t stopping it or slowing it down much at all. Of course I would prefer a world where prostitution simply wasn’t a thing and women worked regular jobs and everyone is happy. The fact is that’s not going to happen.

Topic: Off-topic / Dogs are better then humans now apparently

Hmmmm. Maybe it’s because when they stop by the cans they stop and ponder about children and puppies. Which is cuter and less annoying? Dogs obviously. I never want kids. Can’t believe my parents even made me to start, I wouldn’t be able to handle a whining crying little shit.

Same. But uhhh honestly I would personally rather donate to dogs.

Steam punk sounds pretty unique. Never really seen a steam punk themed spawn. I think cyberpunk/dystopia would be even cooler though.

Topic: Serious Discussion / was earth visited by aliens?????

It’s possible but we have no real way of knowing as of now. I saw a video once about how it would be impossible to build the pyramids in Egypt with just man power and there is other things that didn’t quiet fit that showed the Egyptians could have been even more advanced and intelligent in some ways then we are now and incredibly far behind in other ways. Some people think it was aliens and some people think civilization got as advanced or more then we are now then were wiped out and started over, kinda like a SUPER dark age. Who knows? It’s cool to think about though and I definitely can consider it as a possibility. Probability? Not in my opinion.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why do the liberal Democrats want to take guns away from Americans?

Because too many of your fellow gun owners are irresponsible and reckless and the guns more often then not end up being used to attack, kill, or rob rather then to defend. I would like to see something done where people who truly care about guns and are responsible can hold them but where it gets it out of the hands of criminals. Unless something like that is possible and is done, I would rather guns be completely banned for private ownership.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Why is there "serious Discussion" on a gaming website?

Because this website has thousands of users browsing the forums. If you don’t like it just go to a different sub-forum. There is dozens to choose from, and completely different forums too. It’s nice to come to a place full of people with similar interests and talk with them about serious topics.

With the hundreds of types of chritians like baptists or Roman catholic the bible can’t be taken 100 percent literally because you can take any verse and apply any definition because it isn’t that clear when you translate it from an old language and it leaves errors or contridictions either by the translation or that it was flawed to start with.

This is why all Christians are fundamentally wrong if they are not reading the original transcripts in Hebraic and Greek.

Ya this is true. If Christians believe in the “only one true bible” why do they read so many different versions in so many different languages?

Topic: Serious Discussion / A woman's place is at the kitchen

Well I said women should be able to go after whatever jobs they choose, as long as they are treated equally. They shouldn’t be able to pick and choose which areas they want equality in and which areas they want to avoid the responsibilities in. If they want equality they should ALL be equal in EVERY way. About employers being sexist or having different views about women, that’s something they have to raise awareness on and end. It’s not my problem and I will be honest, I don’t care if women get jobs or not, it’s more stuff for me to do.

Topic: Serious Discussion / Creation vs. Evolution

Evolution. Creationist tend to be afraid of the unknown. Always asking atheist and agnostics “well what do YOU think started it all?” You don’t HAVE to know. I would rather be honest and say I don’t know and probably won’t ever know. The big bang might be true, it might not be. Creationism might be true, it might not be. I choose to accept that I don’t know and that’s that. No further questions please. I don’t understand why people praise something that they don’t know is true. Faith? You’re willing to put your life on the line because of your faith? When the time comes I bet most of you wouldn’t.
