Who have you met, and who do you want to meet?
Tell us your story of who you met and what happened, and who you'd want to meet and what you'd hope would happen?
Let's not include fricking in our "who you'd want to meet" bit. fricking is obvious. If you thought of fricking, you aren't clever.
| Political Talk|| The Secret Service and Presidential Assassinations... (Slight Spin Off) - FightinTiger on 5/20/13 at 4:42 am|
Celebrities get stalked regularly, women get stalked, people that aren't particularly important get killed regularly. The President of the United States (no matter who he is; this thread isn't about any particular president) is arguably the most well known person in the world, and there are plenty o...

| Gaming Board|| Dawnguard Help (Skyrim Spoilers) - FightinTiger on 5/17/13 at 3:48 am|
I'm playing on 360 and everyone in the Vampire castle keeps attacking the moth priest. It's just incredibly annoying because every few seconds, he's getting attacked and it makes it hard to do anything inside the castle, as everyone's almost always attacking him for no reason.
Anyone else have th...

I don't make any money on it (no one does), it's just a sort of role playing type of thing (with less nonsense and lots more math) in which you run a nation, interact with other players, etc.
It's a blast, and I figured I'd share it ...
| Gaming Board|| Skyrim Vampire Question... - FightinTiger on 5/10/13 at 8:27 pm|
I'm thinking about being a Vampire (one save game with, one without) but I have a big question:
Yes, I'm aware that people will attack me if I'm a level 4 vampire, but if my character is married (he is) and I have a housecarl and a steward, and kids, will they attack me, or will they not care tha...

I know that this line has often been described as haunting. I know that it really is. I wonder, though, if there isn't a sort of psychological point at which it wouldn't be such a bad thing.
This thread is purely hypothetical, and I'm not suggesting that anything should be done to make it happen....
| Political Talk|| Skyrim's Politics: The Affect of Video Games on Political Thought... - FightinTiger on 5/7/13 at 9:53 pm|
This is about a video game, yes, but admins, please don't move this thread. It's about a type of media and it's potential influence on political thought. I know lots of gamers also post on the PoliBoard.
If you played it, who did you side with?
Why? Was it an emotional decision, a philosophica...

I'm much more into football and basketball.
I'm aware that I'll seem like a complete idiot, but I'm just wondering:
How good is Aaron Nola? Maybe that's a question like: Is this Peyton Manning guy any good? But like I said, I'm fine with being totally ignorant on this subject.
Is he going ...
| Gaming Board|| Questions for Roaad Re: Morrowind... - FightinTiger on 5/7/13 at 6:09 am|
I played it just a little on Xbox back in the day, but back then it really wasn't my thing. Looking back on it a little, I think I might really enjoy playing it again. I know it's about your favorite game, so I was wondering:
Can I get into it now and not be put off by the relatively basic graphi...
| Gaming Board|| Skyrim Is, Absolutley, The Best Game I've Ever Played... - FightinTiger on 5/5/13 at 4:52 pm|
It's just positively briliant. There's no limit of things to do. If you want the best game you'll ever play, get it. If you've already got it, play it again with emphasis on the sheer intelligence of it's design.
Absolutely love this....

I just feel the need to learn about something outside my comfort zone. Here's a list of things I'm interested in:

| Political Talk|| Can we use this thread to try to define terms? - FightinTiger on 4/30/13 at 3:51 am|
I'm obviously not the final arbiter of definitions, but the thread a little while back with Zach got me thinking: A whole lot of what we argue about is based on vocabulary and semantics.
For example, on this board, "Progressive" means "one who supports everything stupid that the government does"...
| Political Talk|| The Subtle Racism of Lowered Expectations... - FightinTiger on 4/29/13 at 11:41 pm|
Perhaps one of the better observations of race relations in the United States. It's something I try to use daily in altering my thoughts on people and situations.
I wonder, though, if there isn't something like it that works in the opposite direction.
Could there be a subtle racism of unreason...
| SEC Rant|| Teams Moving Up In The Polls After A Loss... - FightinTiger on 4/29/13 at 11:34 pm|
This would apply more to football, but why does this happen so rarely?
I mean, the purpose of the polls is to rank teams from best to worst. If Team A is ranked #1 and Team B is ranked #24 but they take Team A to overtime and lose or lose on the final play of the game, shouldn't Team A drop or Te...

I really do want to own people....

I love these shows, but I disagree with plenty of their statements.
I know lots of people that watch these shows without agreeing with them, but it makes me wonder:
Do you think these shows can have negative effects on political thought?
Do you think you're doing anything wrong by supportin...
