I think the fact that this has gone 30 pages in less than 12 hours is a testament to the impact Smitty has had for the Panthers... Positive or negative...
 

 




#2943207 Fallout 4: Most Anticipated Game Ever.

Posted by Bronn on 11 September 2014 - 09:00 AM

I'm sure I'll be killed for this, but...

 

Glitches don't bother me that much. I've never played the Elder Scrolls or Fallout and the glitches were laughably bad...at most I'd see one (a small one at that) every time I played and just rolled with it. I like the expansive setting, side missions, collecting things, yada yada. There have been some great games that were glitch free and damn near perfect, but last 15 hours or so. That's fun for a week, maybe. I'll take the game I can pour 100 hours into no problem, with replay potential, and be perfectly happy. In no way am I a gamer or even savvy on gaming (especially PC gaming), but the Fallout franchise and Elder Scrolls for that matter haven't been topped as a total package for my needs and interests. Sometimes I just want to shoot some people in the knees and collect a hundred wheels of cheese in the fake house I just bought.

 

I had an army of lawn gnomes standing watch outside my house in Megaton. Over 50 IIRC.




#2940968 Buying silver

Posted by Bronn on 10 September 2014 - 12:00 PM

i dunno, its not a bad place to start.   but you don't want it to be your nest egg.

 

wish i had started collecting silver quarters and dollars when i was 20 for example.   doesn't take as much money to break in to.

 

I know I kinda argued against metals earlier, but...

I once went through our change jug meticulously searching each date on a nickel, dime, or quarter looking for those with silver content to pull out. I wasn't really going to stash them, but I would have sold them more than likely.

Anyway, I found none, and when we took the change to the coin machine to cash it in it was over $400... lol

Never played a Fallout game. Probably not starting with this one, though they have gotten some rave reviews over the years.

 

AHAHAHAHA ha ah haha ha...

Fallout 3 is the best game I have ever played. I know PSC or others will arrive shortly to tell you how good the PC games were (I never played them) but, for me at least, Fallout 3 was and is the best game ever.

you can't eat silver homey...

 

If you're going to spend money on anything, buy consumables to store. I've said it before and I will say it again on these boards, you'd be better served buying long term food stuffs, coffee, toilet paper, cooking fuel, timber plots, water stores, brass (assembled and in parts), led, tools, fuel stores, etc.

See if I give you anything I got if you and I are both hard up and you show up with silver.

 




#2936612 Christian pastor offers atheists $100,000 to prove God doesn’t exist, at...

Really? I haven't experienced that. Dawkins entertains that idea quite a bit. 

 

I was remarking more on the meme that the show Ancient Aliens has become. I've also had several proclaimed atheists react to that with similar humor, though.

I skipped over the last couple pages, but I want to clarify that most statements here contesting the atheist vs. agnostic argument are still operating under the concept of god in the definitions of both words as a personified idea of a creator. ie. Christianity.

 

I call myself an agnostic not out of intellectual laziness or the argument that I do indeed sometimes use to fall back on that "I don't know." Rather, while I readily admit I doubt the presence of a personified-intelligent-creator-deity, I still have a whole lot of respect and intrigue towards the creative energy of the universe itself. That and human consciousness.

 

For all anyone knows, our entire existence was brought forth and is meddled with by extraterrestrials. Say that to a Christian or an atheist, and you'll get equal laughs. But I hold it with just as much merit as either side's belief/non-belief.

However, until we find out we are not unique within the cosmos or whatever, I will maintain that there are forces at work that are greater than human comprehension. I cannot believe what I cannot comprehend, on either side of the existential paradigm.

That said, fairy tales and anthromorphisms were left behind in my personal philosophies a long time ago.

expound on this plz, especially the last part

 

I feel he hit it out of the park.

Basically, any religion thread here involves Christianity vs. Atheists, Agnostics, or maybe even Islam from time to time, depending on who is discussing it.

Nobody ever brings up (I think I might have once or twice) older religions found throughout the world.

Our world view and talking points are directly correlated with (as you have discussed) where and what we are born into and our level of self centeredness/self importance.

It isn't even just religion. It permeates every facet of our lives.

 

Also, the OP pastor is obviously another example of an antagonistic American Christian whose sole purpose for making his video is to further his dogma, while totally disregarding the historical implications of his religion not being original to human civilization.

You can make that argument about a lot of species that are unique in their own ways.

 

Humans only exist today because of intelligence. If not for intelligence, we'd be an extinct species. We have few natural advantages, so we had to use intelligence to use the materials around us to make us stronger.

 

Why do fish in the depths of the ocean create their own light? Are they divine fish because they can explore  the deep dark depths that the other fish don't even know exists? Hell no. They create their own light because that is what they had to do to survive.

 

Human intelligence is no different. It is a survival mechanism. Without it, we are a pathetic species. 

 

We're actually pretty pathetic in the way that we often refuse to use the intelligence we have, and by refusing to obtain more.

I got The Republic of Thieves this weekend. About 375 pages into Red Seas Under Red Skies now...

 

I'm glad you're digging the series, though! Tell all these other fools to get on board!

#2912865 What do you think of my team?

Posted by Bronn on 28 August 2014 - 02:21 PM

QB: Cam Newton

RB: Adrian Peterson

RB: Maurice Jones-Drew

RB: Chris Johnson

RB: DeAngelo Williams

RB: Bernard Pierce

WR: Dez Bryant

WR: Larry Fitzgerald

WR: Torrey Smith

WR: Steve Smith

WR: Justin Hunter

WR: Kelvin Benjamin

TE: Kyle Rudolph

DEF: 49ers

K: Phil Dawson

 

10 team league... Had an autodraft. Already dropped Roethlisberger and added Benjamin (a steal imho)... PPR...

 

Starting positions are: QB, RB, RB, WR, WR, WR/TE, TE, DEF, K

 

I usually don't carry backup QB, TE, K, or DEF because I drop an underperformer/injured player during my starter's bye or go without. I'll snag a QB later in the year for Cam's bye. I hoard RBs and WRs for trade value later.

I figure I made out alright.




#2912793 Universal "Guns Aren't the Issue" Playbook

Posted by Bronn on 28 August 2014 - 01:39 PM

My stance on gun issues doesn't even ride on the second ammendment.  As a free human being, I have the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. If terrible things were to happen, a gun could aid me in preserving at least two of those.
