   Kyoke, I think it's time us concerned members of the BBS take you aside for some talking. We want you to stop drinking. It seems to most of us you have emotional problems, you need to actually work on instead of sitting home drinking them away. We're here for you man, be strong.  :'(

 Sincerely,
Vampire Hunter Bob and your Friends from AA

Too bad for the guy, but for Shark lovers, this is a pretty fucking awesome story to read.

On the other hand, hopefully these recent atacks won't set off moronic reactionaries on some half-assed anti-shark crusade.

Shootin' the Breeze / Happy Thanksgiving! Again.
« on: November 25, 2004, 02:27:09 PM »
I'd like to wish everyone that celebrates this holiday [this excludes the Europeans because they have nothing to be grateful for, minor exceptions, Olivier and Aazealh because their French and the French get all teh women and Luxembourg]. I'd also like to remind everyone of Walter's Thanksgiving miracle. So please don't eat turkey till you need to be rushed to the emergency room and get your stomach pumped.  ;D

p.s. I guess if you want list something your grateful for. I have two feet so that's mine.

Shootin' the Breeze / Great White Shark!
« on: November 07, 2004, 07:31:07 AM »
Most of you probably don't know this, but I'm a Shark fiend; I've been facinated by them, studied them, and drawn them since I can honestly remember. So today was very strange for me, the only way I can describe the anticipation I felt was that it was like I was going to meet God.

Because today I was fortunate enough to meet a Great White Shark, probably the most interesting, and if not, the most famous, shark of them all. The Monterey Bay Aquarium has one on exhibit (that's my own photo, it sucks, but you try photographing a Great White in a million gallon tank in a dark room ;)), and has had it in captivity, in good health, for over three months. This is a big deal if you know anything about Great Whites, I think before this the longest one has survived in captivity was 16 days, if I'm not mistaken. Anyway, it's a huge breakthrough in their ability to study them. I started talking sharks with some of the Aquarium personal and learned that they hope to be able to keep her and study her for the next two years before returning her to the wild. She's been doing great in the Outer Bay tank and seems to be both physically and mentally fine. They say as long as things remain that way, she'll stay in the tank until her size becomes an issue. Right now she's only about five feet, a quarter of her potential growth, and I'm told they don't want to risk keeping her past even six or seven, depending on her behavior. Even at a million gallons, the Outer Bay tank would not be large enough to safely contain her at that size, and the people I talked to were even skeptical that they could even build a tank capable of housing her anywhere near full size. Too bad, I'd love to go in there one day and see her at 10-20 feet. 8)

I'm still hopeful they'll show her the money and go all out to build a super tank capable of displaying a full grown Great White, but I'm not counting on it. Anyway, they're studying her round the clock and the next two years should be extrordinary ones in the field of shark research. I suggest anybody in the bay area go and see her while you can.

Shootin' the Breeze / Vote Osama in '04?
« on: October 30, 2004, 01:28:16 AM »
http://www.cnn.com/2004/WORLD/meast/10/29/binladen.tape/index.html

Compare the things Osama says to the response of our awesome President(s) to be. Not only does he come out looking smarter, he looks more rational, level-headed, and humanitarian even, OUCH! Yeah, so go ahead and vote Osama, he's easily the most qualified when it comes to leadership skills (he sure kicked our ass), and sadly, he's probably being more honest too. =)

Since Ranemaka brought everyone the beloved Peter pan site, I knew I was going to need to do something either better or just as good so I bring you. http://www.bengribaudo.com/

This guy is real, I've seen him with my own two eyes. Hell I've known him since I was a kid. What really is scary he's actually like that in real life. Everyone ENJOY!

Just Incase you didn't see it.

Shootin' the Breeze / Why I hate so many of you out there.

This guy is amazing. He couldn't be more wrong, but he thinks he's smart and types like he is, while actually being a stupid sack of shit that's totally assbackward. And I'd like to shoot in the face. I can't, and that's sad, because the uncultured might even be inclined to believe what he has to say. He's the highest example of the WRONG mindset, he just happens to be able to spell unlike most his counterparts here. If you can't see what's wrong with this, just say so so that I WON'T accidentally have your account deleted by an admin. Those that see what I mean, I'll call you type A's, go ahead and share your favorite quotes, there are some doozys!

Shootin' the Breeze / Silent Hill 4: The Room

I just picked up my copy today for about 20 bucks. So far I'm still in the subway. So where's everyone else in the game?

Shootin' the Breeze / Favorite Jimi Hendrix album.
« on: August 19, 2004, 07:34:14 AM »
I only included the albums Jimi himself released or oversaw during his lifetime since technically any albums released after his death are just compilations of his music. Sorry, no First Rays, guys (though that compilation of songs is fucking awesome). =)

I'm personally voting for Band of Gypsys, I love that album.

Shootin' the Breeze / Computer parts
« on: August 11, 2004, 08:07:25 PM »
Well earlier today I got back from running and noticed something strange, my computer was off. I fiddled with it, pocked it and looked inside it. After a while I switched the powers supply with an older one I had, and guess what. The power supply melted somehow.
 
 Now this got me thinking that I should some time buy new computer parts for my computer. Would someone be nice enough to post a link to a good site where I can order my computer parts?

Shootin' the Breeze / Sonic Blues
« on: July 17, 2004, 03:25:20 AM »
Ugh, remember my old Sonic CD thread. Well, I got it for PC, and needless to say, I cannot play it. It will only run on my Dad's computer (perfectly, I might add) and he's on it most of the time and won't allow me to change his settings to 256 color to play it. I've tried other computers, always a number of problems come up making the running of the game impossible.

So, that was a bust, I found a rom of Sonic CD though, the bad news is it's here...

http://www.romnation.net/srv/roms/44447/segacd/Sonic-CD-U.html

And you need a "Freedom Pass" to download it. Wha'ts that horseshit you ask? Well I'll show you,

http://www.romnation.net/freedompass/intro.php

I already bought the game, and paying for a rom is like paying someone to let you rob someone else's house; ridiculous. Nevertheless, I want the game. So, I'm renewing my request that if you can find the rom, or if you're a "Freedom Pass" member, hook me up if it's not to much trouble. At least I know it's out there.

had Griffith changed his nick he seem to disappear?

he is vampire hunter bob now

Here I am, Smith, and it's actually more like Bob is me now, Dragon Reborn. ;)

Anyway, before anymore accusations can be hurled about who deleted what exactly in "The Great Skullknight.net Mass Modulation Scandal" (a list I'm sure has quite a few name's on it, in reality), you guys should read what I have to sa... uh, hear what I have to typ... uh, nevermind. Just read on...

First and foremost, I'm responsible for this whole mess, so I want to be the first to apologize to Vampier_Hunter_Bob. He shouldnt have had to pay for my mistake. It was all my idea and I knew what the consequences were going to be (not that you guys are predictable or anything :-*). Bob didn't even want to be a mod anymore, he PMed me saying he'd mod with Rane and Dragon Reborn, but he didn't want to play games. So, of course, in my infinite wisdom I made him a Global Mod instead of just honoring his wishes. Yes, he made a mistake, but just because his hand was the one in the cookie jar doesnt mean he should die for all of our sins.

If anyone is solely responsible for this, it's myself. Honesty is my only excuse. This was a social experiment of sorts; I was curious to see what would happen among you with absolute and yet equal power over each other, beyond what I already surmised (this). In the end, I guess I hoped after the fallout that maybe it would evolve into something interesting that could have been left to its own devices; something progressive. Anyway, in addition to probably being a bonehead idea, it was plain bad timing; the Breeze was looking' pretty good lately, and some entertaining threads have unfortunately gone the way of the Dodo. It was certainly no time to shake things up. Although, the damage having already been done (and more), I am disappointed the little idea wasn't allowed to run its course. Hey, you guys could have all been mods in an Internet utopia. ;D

Anyway, all's well that ends well now, and I guess we did learn something from this, even if it wasnt the result I was looking for.

Sorry guys, and sorry David,

-Spider-Man

Speculation Nation / Epic Drama Uncovering This Way Comes
« on: July 10, 2004, 03:36:08 PM »
Okay, time to start speculating on the EPIC DRAMA that will be Vritannis. Aazealh and I were talking about it this morning and that got the ball rolling. Anyway, heres my fanfic speculation I call The ULTIMATE EPIC DRAMA UNCOVERING SCENARIO!!!


Guts and company arrive in the city, looking for a boat and whatever other business they might do there. Its attacked shortly after they arrive by Kushans (if not under attack already). A troop led by Silatt for the Kushan side is fighting a troop led by Azan to protect the city. Anyway, Ganishkas supernatural forces hit the scene and start fucking everything up to the shock of everybody, Silatt included. Guts, naturally, gets involved. Since Guts can handle the monsters, people unite behind him. Then Griffith the Hawks show up to save the day. =)

Guts Beasts out and is killing everything in sight, but hes taking major damage fighting a war on two fronts and his buddies arent much help. Griffith takes charge of the situation and the Hawks play hard ball. They transform, Griffith included!!! OMG! HERE COMES SKULLY INTO THE FRAY TOO!

ALL HELL BREAKS LOOSE!!!
KABOOOOOOOMBLAAAMO!!!!

To make a long story short, the city is absolute pandemonium and Guts and his party, with the addition of Silatt and Azan end up on a boat out of there. Guts is dead or in a coma, they can't tell which, and fucked up in a way that makes the fallout from Floras house look like a mild hangover. He's also still locked inside the armor and theyre gunnin for Elfhelm full speed ahead! LOOK OUT SHARK APOSTLES AND A GIANT SQUIDOMG!@!!

Any better ideas? ;D

Shootin' the Breeze / Weasel Debating Techniques
« on: March 28, 2004, 09:40:28 PM »
These are from Scott Adams new book, Dilbert and the Way of the Weasel. I've seen these techniques in action hundreds of times since I've been debating Berserk, and after the latest flurry in the 237 thread, I had to post them. Without further ado...


Weasel Debating Techniques

Nothing makes a weasel argue more vigorously than being proven wrong. Here are some things youll never hear a weasel say:

Ill be darned-the information you gave me has changed my opinion. I was completely wrong.

Now that you mention it, maybe all those Nobel Prize-winning scientists do know more about science than I do.

Im ignorant of the important facts so it wouldnt make any sense to offer my opinion.

          The traditional method for approaching an argument is to bring up relevant facts and weave them together in a logical framework. Unfortunately, that wont work against weasels because they use a superior debating method that involves conjuring hallucinations, carefully arranging them in a tangled lump, and declaring victory. I recommend that you use this method too because the traditional method will only leave you frustrated. The weasel techniques are detailed below using a handy abbreviation and numbering system where WDT stands fir weasel debating techniques. Feel free to use the shorthand at your next meeting, as in, Hey, Wally, are you giving me a WDT 3?

WDT 1: Restate your opponents ideas using bizarre absolutes and then refute them.

WDT 2: Make comparisons to Hitler. This is a surprisingly flexible technique because Hitler was a busy guy. He did everything from eating to painting landscapes to attacking the world. So if someone argues that napping is good for you, point out that Hitler liked napping too.

WDT 3: Make a good point about an unrelated topic. For example, if someone is arguing that airline travel is relatively safe, and you- against all data- are arguing the other side, point out that swimming is good exercise. When your opponent looks stunned and says, Yes, but . . ., cut him off in midsentence, declare victory, and excuse yourself from the room.

WDT 4: Fill all airtime to appear knowledgeable and eliminate the opportunity for rebuttal.

WDT 5: Accuse your opponent of being insensitive. This method works because its always true. Im willing to bet that even conjoined twins complain that the other is insensitive, e.g., You dont know what its like to be the head on the left!

WDT 6: For every respectable human quality there is an insulting word that means the same thing. For example, accuse open-minded people of being flakes. Accuse cautious people of being afraid of change.

WDT 7: Add weight to your opinions by invoking the opinions of unnamed multitudes, as in, Everyone agrees with me. A weasel defines everyone as at least one other weasel.



Like he said, feel free to call these on each other in a debate. ;D

-Griffith
