I died on wave 1 on bronze playing Mass Effect 3 today. I wasn't revived. I felt as if my teammates were essentially shaming me.

One time, I was playing Splinter Cell: Conviction multiplayer (Co-op) and my random partner walked into the sightline of a gun turret, so I couldn't exactly go rush over to revive him. I needed a few seconds for the camera turret to pan away, but he foolishly decides to not let nature take it's course, by keeping it's attention on him by firing at it with his sidearm.

He bleeds out, and gets pissed at ME.

Was I supposed to rush in there to revive him, taking heavy damage myself, just to revive him to be immediately shredded again because he couldn't wait a few initial seconds for the gun's camera to pan away?

They made Nixon resign because he tried to get the US to use metric.

NOTICE: During 19/3 renovations, we accidentally knocked down the single load bearing wall.

The thread will have a sway to it, and we are working to fix this problem.

We ask that no one lean against any walls until further notice. Those with illnesses that might cause sneezes are also asked to stay home.

We need to discuss a topic of some controversy. It is the basis of all internet threads.

Why is the Titanic in particular so fascinating? There have been plenty of boats that have sunk. It's notable for crashing into a ****ing iceberg. Why does that stand the test of time? James Cameron didn't help, but it's a common enough thing to know about that it got a mention in Ghostbusters 2.

Does it get the circus because it's destination was NYC?

It gets the Circus because it was yet another example of mankind's hubris. The ship was built, it was massive, it was said to be unsinkable. Mankind tried to fly too close to the sun and just like Icarus, we were slapped down by mother nature. If Aesop had written the story of the Titanic, it would have been called a fable.

And the controversial discussion ends with the first post.

This is part of the circus I'm talking about.

It's a ****ing boat. It's not a mythological event, but it gets this mystique about it that, looking at it from my perspective now, should be a footnote in history, but it gets this big treatment like there's some mystery to it, or that it's a major event in the scheme of things.

The Titanic sank during the age of yellow journalism, so it's no surprise that the media of the day would sensationalize it, but why has it ascended beyond that and somehow still holds this magical reverence with the public? Is it because westerners died, and that's why we put it on a pedestal?

The Titanic got lucky in some respects, not in hitting the iceberg, but in that it's such a large part of the general public's knowledge of history.

And another thing, can people drop the 'Mystery of Roanoke Colony' crap?

Quote:
The colonists of the lost Roanoke Colony may have relocated to Hatteras Island. When John White returned to Roanoke on a re-supply mission, the settlement was found empty, the only clue being the word "Croatoan" carved into a post of the fort and "Cro" carved into a nearby tree. All the houses and fortifications had been dismantled, which meant their departure had not been hurried. Before he had left the colony, White had instructed them that if anything happened to them, they should carve a Maltese cross on a tree nearby, indicating that their disappearance had been forced. As there was no cross, White took this to mean they had moved to "Croatoan Island" (now known as Hatteras Island), but he was unable to conduct a search. A massive storm was brewing and his men refused to go any further. The next day, they left

Because it's a story that really has all the classic elements doesn't it.

Great acts of heroism and selflessness.
Epic tragedy
Fascinating tales of incompetence, stupidty and selfishness (we seem to never be able to get enough of this sort of thing.
The very very rich and the most downtrodeen of people fighting for survival in the same scenario.

And...the fact that the damn thing apparently could have been saved. At least enough to keep it afloat until help arrived. So it was an avoidable tragedy. Could have probably missed the iceberg as well.

I just had about 8 dreams within a dream about getting up out of bed and going to the bathroom. Each time I would use the bathroom, I'd wake up from said dream, only to be dreaming about it again. And on the last one, finally I got up in real life, and proceeded to use the bathroom.
