Topic: Off-topic / SAT ethics

http://www.escapistmagazine.com/articles/view/features/9370-Use-Crowbar-Ace-Test

Read that article.
Discuss whether
i) You agree, why etc
ii) You think it is right that the SAT functions that way, why etc
iii) You think that the SAT is different than detailed in the article and of course…

IV) How the SAT may be improved/is it necessary to improve it on a fundamental level?

I don’t have the time to post anything right now, and my time for discussion here will be rather limited, but I’ll be very disheartened if a moderator closes this topic for some arbitrary clause in the rules as I’m interested in what other people have to say about this here.

Hey, it’s their own fault for not making their music more readily available.
I would happily pay for my music, but they don’t want to accept my cash, for some reason.
So I resort to downloading, purely because it’s more convenient.

You’re doing it wrong.

Lets discuss how our FRIENDS who aren’t us steal music so that I can know what NOT to do.

Topic: Off-topic / Is 1810 a good SAT score?

1810 will give you a SHOT at most colleges. However, that kind of score isn’t going to make you look great as an applicant. Over 2000 is impressive, and will really put you up onto another tier which will let you vie for pretty much any college granted other prerequisites.

I wish I could have one of those too. The biggest stuffie I have is about half my size, and I want a stuffie that I can wrap my arms and legs around.

Just pointing out the irony here for passerbys who want to enjoy the moment as much as I have. VanHalen, please lie more. It hurts me when you don’t.

Why do you think I’m lying? I’m not.

I can’t tell you without insulting you; so I won’t. Basically your life is so ridiculous that it can’t be true.

This post upsets me. I hope that you are joking because you are just as awful as before.

Oh dear, you are not wanted here anymore.

Also, who are you?

Not a book; essential essays on logic philosophy. You should try it some time, all the cool kids are doing it.

I want to OWN these four texts(there’s more, but this is want I want for Christmas; I can buy texts later)… I spent all of my money on video games and clothes recently.

There’s no way my friends and family are going to buy me philosophy/logic text books, so I’m on my own it would seem.

ITT things that you want but won’t get.

Topic: Off-topic / Looks like someone forgot about

Oh, my apologies Cammy, I shouldn’t have said that, no one here would get the reference.

Vegard, I never explicitly said I used the Pirate Bay, and I’m hurt that you think I would use such an amazing service that only people who wouldn’t buy the games anyway use. Besides, I’m very democratic (not a democrat, though hurr).

The Pirate Bay

No skyrim? No Half Life 2? No Mass Effect?

Also Alien Swarm was awful.

Also is it ironic in a funny or awful way when the fat girl gets raped?

Also I told you I had no idea how to go in depth. I am simple-minded when it comes to these things.

Well then you don’t know the answer.

Even though they still manage to take up the same amount of space, re-ordering them leaves a space open.

Don’t know how to go in-depth though.

You guys…

Flameboy, yes, but HOW is that possible? Surely you realize why that is seemingly impossible yes?

Omnade.. no, that isn’t at all the trick, the thing is that the same amount of squares aren’t filling that square somehow.

Ruin the fun of making my friend feel like a complete moron. Good thing he didn’t see this link, he thinks that he said something completely incoherent, and now I have another chip of superiority over him. Besides, he said that about the Bourne Identity, so his defeat is well deserved.

He told me that this movie ‘insisted upon itself’.

Any ideas as to what he meant by this?

Topic: Off-topic / The official Legend Of Zelda thread

Actually most games are on a separate plane of existence.

For instance, in Ocarina of Time, Ganon didn’t kill Link because Link needed to open up the Temple of Time for him. Link was in warp for 7 years and Ganon couldn’t have killed him then, so that’s why Ganon doesn’t attack Link as a child.

Ranking of Zelda Games:

Ocarina of Time
Majoras Mask
Zelda II
Wind Waker
Twilight Princess

Nothing else is worth listing to me. Also, in SKyward Sword, it copies your EXACT movement. The dungeons and puzzles are always different, the world is always different, items change, and that is the gameplay. New minigames, new side quests. The only thing that is constant is the backbone (do dungeons, kill ganon), but they change it up every time a lot.

Ganon isn’t even in majora’s mask.
And I’m not sure, but I’m pretty sure he’s not in zelda 2 either.
Not positive though.

Ganon isn’t in Zelda II, but whatever, you get my point, do dungeons; kill the bad guy, get the girl. But each game is very different.
