Topic: Off-topic / Is it possible to have too many games?

I mostly play games on my computer nowadays, and a while ago, my C: drive started to get filled up, so I had to transfer most of my games to a portable hard drive.

So yes, you can have too many games.

Topic: Off-topic / The Hulk is now the main character of your favorite movie. How would that change it?

I was such a dork two years ago.

My tastes have become much more refined since then.

Since I doubt the Hulk is very accurate with guns, Tuco would have been hanged at the beginning of the movie, thus they never would have found the dying Confederate soldier who would lead them to the treasure, and the whole plot would have been subverted.

11/10

My mind was absolutely blown away by this song. Like, I don’t think I can come up with a song to top that. Truly a song for the ages.


And now for a fine example of the totally underrated genre of ambient folk:

This particular individual has graced Kongregate with their presence for a slightly shorter time span than mine.


Their average post count, since their kongbirth, per day is 6.24.
(This is equivalent to their [Posts]/[Days on Kongregate].)

(Only accurate for the exact moment I posted it.)


Their posting style generally consists of sarcasm, dark humor, or blunt vulgarity.


They’ve stayed consistently popular during their lifespan.


Several of this person’s notable alternate accounts made use of alliteration.

Topic: Off-topic / A giant pangolin is attacking your place of residence!

It’s a fifty-foot tall version of this:

And here’s a video about Pangolins.

Basically, it’s got huge claws that can dig into tough ground, durable protective plates all over its body, and a long sticky prehensile tongue that can fit into just about any crevice or hole.

And it’s fifty feet tall, attacking whatever type of place you live in.

Also, your neighbors, police, and military are not there to help for whatever reason.

Do you survive?

Topic: Off-topic / Nueva Sala de chat Español

I’m sorry, but as Gabidou has pointed out, OT only accepts posts in English.

OT is meant to be a place where everyone can participate in meaningful discussion, and if a thread is in a language that most users do not understand, then it stifles conversation and clutters the forum.

Topic: Off-topic / Should we get more active staff (post wise) on OT?

Sorry guys, I know I should be more active than I am, but I often find myself distracted by other things.

Perhaps I should give myself a minimum of 1 post every day. That’ll keep me coming back regularly. It might be tough to do once school starts up for me again.

Raisins are pretty terrible in cookies, though I suppose they are preferable to chunks of metal or cyanide tablets.

Nobody talks about the thing you just mentioned or anything related to that.

I understand that the OP is probably someone’s alternate account, but just in case it is a legitimately new user, I might as well answer the question.

Also, I was giving examples of the kinds of threads OT was intended for. I wasn’t suggesting that OT is only about raisins and movies, but only that those topics are fair game for discussion here (as opposed to Serious Discussion or General Gaming, for example).

Topic: Off-topic / What's this forum about?

OT is really a place to shove all the miscellaneous stuff that doesn’t fit into the other forums. You wanna talk about how you don’t like raisins in your cookies? OT’s the best place for that. Do you want to talk about your favorite movie? OT is good for that too.

You people care about points?

I’ve been here since 2008 and I’m still level 16. The points and levels are mostly meaningless, sort of like post count.

I didn’t like it at first, but it grew on me the more I listened. I generally don’t like the sound of most chiptune music, but that wasn’t too bad. Kinda catchy.

Sorry to be a party pooper, but this thread is set up so we can collectively decide whether we like or hate certain people in the community. In this sort of thread, harassment and bullying is inevitable, so I’m going to ahead and lock the thread.

Topic: Off-topic / ≡|OT Forum simulator OFFICIAL thread|≡

Originally posted by TwistedCakez:

implying this hasn’t already been done before

There’s some things I don’t really like about that video though.

The Rickroll thing is done and over with, making the video feel dated and unoriginal. I recommend something timeless, like Yakety Sax, Tchaikovsky’s Nutcraker Suite, Brahms’ Hungarian Dance No. 5 or the Sabre Dance.

Also, a common thing to do in videos of this sort is to get one of those text-to-speech things to read the comments for you. Having one of those read absolutely ridiculous statements in a calm, unflinching tone adds a bit of humor, but also gives the video something much harder to acquire—pacing. I noticed that the video held certain frames on the screen for several seconds, even when it was just a simple “:(,” which could be read instantaneously. Watching it felt like ages to my Millennial mind which can’t stand to not be stimulated for a couple of seconds. However, when you add a voice reading the words, a strange thing happens in the audience’s mind, because then they don’t mind that it’s taking a few seconds to switch to the next frame, because the voice is acting as stimulation. Plus, in regards to that word pacing I used, the voice also makes sure that you don’t leave the text on the screen for too long or too short a period of time.

Also, I recommend that you use longer excerpts. It tells more of a story that way. I understand that giving more away might give hints as to the identity of the poster, which you’d understandably want to avoid, but it provides a clearer picture of what’s going on in the post. Additionally, longer excerpts would do well with a voice reading the comment. A long comment on a silent video might elicit the “tl;dr” response to some of the more casual viewers, but if the excerpt is being vocalized to them, well then it would take less effort to listen than to read.


tl;dr version:

• Better music
• Narration
• Longer excerpts

Topic: Off-topic / If Obama was white would he have been elected?

I don’t think so.

In the 2008 election, the United States was on the verge of economic catastrophe. There was a widespread belief that the policies of the Republican party led to the situation. I remember that there were numerous ads attacking McCain as being “more of the same.” In this situation, being the Democratic candidate gave him an edge.

Also during the 2008 election, it could be said that Obama was a much more impassioned speaker than McCain, with his deep but loud voice, compared to McCain’s higher, more nasal voice.

In the 2012 election, the results were closer, but Romney’s image as spoiled, rich, and out of touch ultimately cost him the election. That remark he made about the 40% certainly didn’t help his image either. Obama likely won in 2012 simply because of his opponent’s bad image.

Topic: Off-topic / Ian Thorpe came out of the closet...

Who is Ian Thrope?

From Wikipedia:

Ian James Thorpe, OAM (born 13 October 1982) is an Australian swimmer who specialises in freestyle, but also competes in backstroke and the individual medley. He has won five Olympic gold medals, the most won by any Australian, and with three gold and two silver medals, was the most successful athlete at the 2000 Summer Olympics. At the 2001 World Aquatics Championships, he became the first person to win six gold medals in one World Championship.

Admittedly, I’m not too familiar with Australian swimmers either.

I like Times New Roman. Sure, it’s common and everyday, but it’s fancier than Ariel, and I can use it on essays.

If you don’t know what Times New Roman looks like, then I’m sorry, but you’re a loser.

I’ve never heard of him. But you say he’s somehow related to the Amazing Atheist? I used to watch the Amazing Atheist, but he eventually turned vehemently anti-feminist, and I realized he was just an asshole, so I stopped watching him.

Topic: Off-topic / Which color are you?

1-9 are too bright; 10-18 are too dull.

I’d normally say red, but a darker red than 1, sort of like the color of Kongregate’s banner.

I’ll go with 10.
