Not only am I pissed about that but the other day my PS3 flat out died on me, it powered off and started blinking red. I've had this problem before and have already spent 300 dollars on repairs. So I called Sony asked to speak to a supervisor and vented at him. I told him I was getting a 360 and I'm done with Sony so he said he would take 100 bucks off repair and a free game of my choice.
When your PS3 dies, never repair it. It's a bandaid waiting to peel off. You were better off buying a new one from the start.
You're surprised by hypocrisy from the religious? The New Testament says that Jesus said "It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God." And yet somehow studies show that the more Christian a person is the more economically conservative the person is. People don't hold coherent philosophies about these things.
I'm not religious, was never a christian anyway, but I wouldn't say in this situation it's wrong for people to celebrate OBL's death. The guy was a mass murderer who was still trying to kill more people. I also would say there is more to his death than him being dead. This quite possibly will make it easier for us to bring our troops home from Afghanistan. That's something to celebrate. With him gone there's a chance we'll see less terrorism, remains to be seen but it's definitely possible. I would also venture to assume this will help Obama's reelection chances which is something I'd definitely celebrate.
never said surprised. just disappointed. like when the Rangers used to not make the playoffs. It never surprised me, just constantly disappointed me. unfortunately, humanity does not get a rebuild to turn things around.
edit: I guess the sentiment I am against is if it's ok for us to celebrate OSL death, then it's ok for a bunch of Al Qaeda militants to celebrate the death of 9/11 victims and vice versa. Or if it's ok for Hamas to celebrate the death of Jews by suicide bomber, then its ok for Jews to celebrate when Palestinians are killed by air strikes. It goes both ways and I don't like taking that road.
What? It's an OT thread. Who's being a hypocrit about what? What are you saying here?
Again, I didn't start the thread, which is about one of the more serious issues in the world.
Am I not supposed to care about the world around me because I'm a hockey fan?
I really don't get the point of your post.
The thread isn't about anything, it's off-topic. There is no one "thing" the thread is about. If you want non-stop talk about world events, go to a news forum. You can read both you know.
Saying "Bahhh bahhhh" and calling people sheep because they changed the subject to video games, is being a hypocrite. Is world events the only thing you talk about ever? You have over 2000 posts, and I assume most of them are about hockey. Guess what, hockey, video games, and ****** T.V. shows like Jersey Shore are the same thing, entertainment. So how can you bleet at someone who is talking about video games and T.V., when you spend your spare time posting on a hockey forum and watching hockey games? It's all the same.
Only if you don't take yourself seriously enough to post seriously, even if you're seriously joking, in a place where you spend so much of the little time you have on this planet. No sarcasm.
Otherwise, back to the good game for which we're here in the first place.
I live to have a good time and joke around. People who take themselves too seriously tend to be a lot more stressed and therefore seem to be more of a dick then the next guy. I may be wrong but through the 18 and a half years of my life, that is what I have observed.
Not to say that there are not things that are important and need to be taken seriously, such as school or work, but honestly we are in an off-topic thread on a forum about hockey. Loosen up, chill the **** out, and have a good time
