that just too cruel about your cousins.. so shocked to hear about that.. may you have the strength to live on bro
Are you guys talking about the Holocaust?
Didn't theykill all those people cause they were afraid of being killed themselves if they didn't follow orders from their superiors... even though they knew that such actions (mass killing/etc) was wrong?
(25 May 2013 - 11:02 PM)
didn't shoot them ... most of them they gassed, shooting was too expensive! they first uses fumes of engines but then turned to Zyklon-B ... a very strong pesticide ... but weapons weren't the issue there ... people were ... people always are the issue. But pleas lets not go there ... Im tired and kn owing me I'd be getting into an argument about that topic easily ...
(25 May 2013 - 10:55 PM)
Jews weren't killed because of crazy weapons, but because of crazy people ... I think it would be agood start to keep weapons of any kind away from crazy people in general. Then keep crazy people away from all the others ... Good night!

call me a fundamentalist, but I don't like the idea of being surrounded by people who have the means to kill me any time they want ... or even worse: any time they don't want but by accident ...
(25 May 2013 - 10:45 PM)
you can kill with those ... there has been this little boy accidentally shooting his two year old sister dead like two weeks ago or so ... and two cases where 5-year olds killed adults ... one went , grabbed his father's gun and shot a lady dead who was walking the streets ... question is: if you had a gun shouldn't you keep it locked somewhere especially when kids are around?
(25 May 2013 - 10:41 PM)
I mean: just go to your town center ... or to a shopping mall ... take public transport: damn! Most of those people you see there should not even be allowed to VOTE ! ... I don't want them to be allowed to shoot ...
(25 May 2013 - 10:39 PM)
apart from that ... Im telling you what would make me feel safe and secure: If I could be sure and confident that not every single idiot on the street is allowed to walk around wielding a gun in front of my nose! ... THAT would make me feel safe!
(25 May 2013 - 10:38 PM)
they claim they'd feel more secure wearing a gun so the US will be a safer and more secure place if anyone would be allowed to wear a gun ... well ... anyone IS allowed to wear a gun RIGHT NOW ... I read about the statistics ... there are killed thousands of people every year in the US ... doesn't seem to work like that I guess.
(25 May 2013 - 10:37 PM)
those NRA dudes always bring up the argument that they'd need the rights to wear guns to a) defend themselves against criminals, Nationalist organizations usually claim b) they'd need their guns to defend themselves against the government ... thing is:

when my first cousin had died and I heard about it five months after the funeral I was both sad and angry ... sad because of his death angry because you can not possibly justify not telling your family about it for five months ... but this time ... she died like two years ago ... Im quite indifferent about it ... I mean: its so unreal! ...
(25 May 2013 - 10:18 PM)
its the daughter of my mother's sister ... and she had died in April ... April 2011 !!! ...I read about the ceremony being held in her church in April 2011 ... my aunt didn't even bother to tell us ... thing is a couple of years back my other cousin died in an accident and she informed us about it five months after the funeral ... so this time she didn't even inform us at all!

I tried a chocolate cake at MacD about two or three weeks ago ... well I THOUGHT it was chocolate cake ... but that thing was 50% chocolate bar! I mean: it was like a massive block of chocolate on top of some sugary sweet chocolate cake ... enough calories to keep your engine running for a marathon ...
(25 May 2013 - 10:08 PM)
@Night: theres nothing to like or not to like about either BKing's or MacD's food variety! There is no ... no food! Ergo: no food variety! ... its just bits and pieces of leftover fat muched together with whatever, wrapped in plastic ... argh! ... Yo shouldn't even try to feed on that ...
(24 May 2013 - 03:12 PM)
Those are bad too, but Im talking about Revenue and Customs! State Department of Finance is freedoms first grade enemy! They are telling you to pay taxes in order to contribute to society, building roads and keeping up the tubes for water-supply in your commune, but then they will make you pay for using the highway extra (France, Germany, Austria, Poland ...) - first they start with trucks, then private cars will follow - then they sell water-supply to private companies who will charge you again for it. Taxes is just a form of disposessing you of your money!

Night Heart, remember everything you learn, even if you're tired. There are certain divisions of the Military that train you for stuff like that. Though they mostly expect it to come natural, if not, they'll help... Sleepy? Tired? So? Think straight anyway. Why? If you're on the field and are drifting off, you pay attention less and less. As a result, what you have learned so far is forgot, and you don't notice the enemy coming up from behind you. Guess what? Since you were tired and dozed off, your throat is slit and you're dead. Or if you are captured and need to keep certain things a secret, you need to keep your tactical misinformation consistent. If deprived of sleep,you will not be able to keep it straight. Well damn it, you slipped up and leaked some information. How? You showed inconsistency, and they picked it up and drilled at that until you accidentally told the truth. If you are going for Psychology, push the boundaries of what you can accept and understand.

using them to store and share my simple programs was the first thing I did when I got empty disks... later on I started piling them up with saved data and backups Now I should still have all those backed up in external drives with folders labeled with RED BLUE GREEN BLACK and true about the older Apple systems (well even now it mostly requires to be hooked up with other apple products but at least its getting software that is somewhat compatible with other Operating systems .. though mostly via means of Virtual Machines ... ) Still I prefer Linux systems over Apple if I had to switch out from the user friendly Windows :D
(22 May 2013 - 01:14 PM)
And as far as I remember Apple products have always been terribly expensive. Truth be told: they were always the most fashionable company with the coolest design, but nevertheless terribly expensive! Apple computers would only run with other Apple products, Apple printers and whatnot and you could never use your files on other computers ... thats their weak point! If you had an Apple at home you could not do the print-out at uni or in the copy-shop and if you had to do an essay or a presentation with others you had to go to their place and use their computer to write things up because they couldn't use your data. I believe things have changed now, but I never bought any Apple products for that reason. Also because PC users are far more lassez-fare when it comes to their hard- and software. Apple geeks are always so over the top with their company its a bit like a sectarian group, like Christian fundamentalists or Scientology or something ... I mean: who gives a shit about what computer you are using? No point in coming up to me and talking me down just because I happen to have other products from other companies! They always try to convert people around them and I can't stand it.

well I've only used the slide thing for the smaller floppy disks .. never had any empty/blank/formatted disks for the bigger ones and those times I was more into using or playing with them than into programming (which I started when I got the windows 3.1 laptop and Q-basic)
(22 May 2013 - 01:09 PM)
That slide thing comes with the 3 1/2 inch floppy disk. For the flexible 5 1/4, 8 and 12 inch floppy disk you would have to cut a little rectangle bit off the corner. You could not write on them any more after cutting off those bits. If you wanted to add or delete later on you had to cover the hole with some tape. Its a bit like with the old cassettes where you had to break off that tiny little plastic bit in the corner section to secure the date and keep you from accidentally overwriting them and had to put duck-tape on them to write on them again. Something like that ...
(22 May 2013 - 12:59 PM)
My grandfather was with the Apple products from the start so he had all those operating systems from the oldest models and gradually kept upgrading to the newer ones .. but now he realized how much expensive it all became so my dad set him up with the windows set up XD
(22 May 2013 - 12:49 PM)
Corner bits off? not sure about those but the normal floppy disks that I used had the small square/rectangle slide thing that would make them read only or writable.. though I don't think you meant that system and yeah I did have a computer that used those large floppy disks XD usually it was games on them.. If I remember correctly we had digger and Cubix among others but had that system when I was like 5 or so (my ekder brother played on that more and in his time there probably was a working cassette player system because I saw those in the dismantled parts crate that my father kept in his "store" *ahem* junk *ahem* room XD Dad was the main tech guy and used to bring in all the latest computers in the house so that was the only way we got to try them all from the start of Windows. and older to those.
(22 May 2013 - 12:04 PM)
Oh GOD! Those should be 12 inch disks ... (there were 8 ichs? really?) ... don't tell me you had those! They are as old-school as can be ... well ... some used a datasette, which is basically a cassette player ... my brother used to have one of those for his pocket pc, which was basically something like a better calculator ... Sharp produced them thingies back in the days ...
Have you also had those thingies to cut away the corner bits of the discs to secure the data?
(22 May 2013 - 10:57 AM)
ah there was also that one desktop (though now I can't remember if it had windows on it or if it was DOS only) that ran these the 8 inch ones.. Don't remember if I used the 5.2 inch disks >__>

@blu3: So Jehova's Witnesses are only trying to sell their magazines?
@Sonic: "Social Nanny" working on you? ... has a nice ring to it!
@Night: I checked my system CDs (yeah I know ... I shouldn't keep all of them, but hey ..) seems like my first desktop has been Win 95 ... theres really no point in keeping all them system CDs ... theres no computer running on it anyway .. oh and I got a Sinclair ZX81 somewhere ... its been passed down to me and good fun ... it has 1 kb RAM and no disk drive or anything, but its been the first computer private people could buy. Its actually still working! I had it attached to a TV a couple of times ... nothing you can do with it apart from simple calculations and BASIC programming, but its still cool! It must date back to 1983 or something but its still working ... when I think about your home-electronics! () ...
(22 May 2013 - 07:25 AM)
on another note.. I've got a paper of psychology due in a hour or so and am not the least bit prepared for it >__> My mind feels so tired at the moment.. been cramming up as much as I could and still get the feeling that whatever I'm reading won't be what I would be needing And also don't remember half of what I just went through.. though it had something to do with Long and short term memory XD
i read manga once i sit on my computer @ work so that's 7 hours of manga reading everyday unless i want to watch anime lmao i am beggining to think im being paid for reading manga or watching anime LOL
I read manga all the time. You could say it's the only thing I do. When I get to school I read manga the first thing I do.When I get home continue to read manga.When I don't find any new ones I read old ones all over again.
