My mom got me a Rubix cube last year as a joke gift. However I didn't see it as a joke gift, and could solve it pretty quickly after a few weeks.
I got fallout new vegas, a $50 prepaid mastercard (used it to buy minecraft and may get the orange box off of steam) a lot of Stanley Kubrick movies, clothes and like every Christmas, underwear.

Dec 5, 2010I am glad it isn't on the front page because no matter how many times it is stated to be unofficial, I guarantee if it was on the front page people would reference it as fact. That would get annoying, especially to people who think it is fake, like me.Posted in: Diablo III General Discussion
Edit: Necronergal, your answer was the best. I completely forgot about the poor cats

scyberdragon, you naughty boy....how many questions did you ask in diablo 3's twitter page?!? the twitter tracker just unloaded a boatful of posts....all from you
Scyberdragon, ace reporter, always gets his story. No matter what he has to do.
Nov 28, 2010Whoops, I was mistaken. It says Nekro has porn vids of you all, not pictures. I guess I will have to keep waiting until he reveals them.Posted in: Off-Topic
I guess I shall post some more pictures of people who have made an impression on me.
Mephisto (if the guy was middle eastern)
Nekro is worships a cow.
Siaynoq and Ivaron hanging out together
Magistrate thinks he is a rodent
Don_G is too smart not to be the reincarnation of Isaac Newton
Nov 18, 2010Curse you Fingolfin, that was the picture I was going to use. Fingolfin is the biggest badass to ever walk Middle Earth.Posted in: Off-Topic
So lets just go with this one:
I think Ophion probably looks something like this most of the time:

And a similar skill is in WCII for human and orc sorcerers/wizards. I think. I know the wizard transforms guys into sheep.
The human mage could use polymorph (which turned people into a sheep). Orc deathnights were stupid and had raise dead or something instead. They were lame.
What kind of proper magic user cant turn somebody into an animal?

I had a good plan for Scyber, but it didn't go so well. I know 2 things about him,he is from Columbus and he is Asian. So naturally, I was searching through Columbus in google street view looking for any asian person (because the first one I found would obviously be scyber). The only problem is, I could not find any asian people about the streets of Columbus, so I had to settle with assuming he is hiding in some stereotypical building.
Nov 14, 2010Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)And it's a good argument you're posing. "Since humans were all dumb back then, the prophets went easy on them and turned the facts into nice little fairy tales that they could swallow". Humans were very dumb indeed, with their bows and arrows, iron and steel armors; infrastructure, agriculture, the math they knew that reached to an early college education today. Very dumb indeed.
I may have underestimated the intelligence of ancient people, but I believe you are overestimating it. There were innovated geniuses who made breakthroughs in math, started to understand crop rotation, and developed new weaponry, however these people were not the majority. For religion to spread it must appeal the the masses, and the average person would have received no formal education and would not understand why any of those things work (although they might be able to replicate them) so I do find it hard to believe they would understand evolution and the concept of billions of years.
I believe you said it best here:
Since I believe you are right and human's intellectual capacity has not changed much throughout the years that would point to a lack of education. The average person would have revived no education besides possibly learning a skill that would give them work for the rest of their lives. Without a basic education it they would have no idea what the bible would be talking about if it mentioned billions of years or evolution and because of this it would be detrimental to the spread of Christianity if these things were included.It's only a lack of education or a low IQ that would cause people to not understand such trivial things.
Jesus must've been sceptical even about using the number 6000 since that would take many minutes to count up to and people might lose count or grow bored of the challenge.
The people that invented all these things were the only ones that could conceive numbers so large, or think outside the box and question, even for a second, that maybe the universe doesn't revolve around us (Jesus must've been giving humans an ego-boost with this one).
The idea isn't so absurd as you may think though. Religious folk do tend to be the less educated and more narrow minded of the human populace, so conceiving numbers that big could have been out of their grasp. The prophets were smart though, they knew their target audience was huge, and still is today.
Until the day everyone gets an education right through to the end of college...
Yes, because nobody with a college education is religious.
Nov 13, 2010Yeah, I am full of stupid quotes. I suck at wording things, especially when I am tired, so when I try to explain my thoughts it always comes out weird.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
But do you think that if some prophet who said he talked to god tried to explain the concept of billions of years or evolution or anything like that to somebody thousands of years ago they would believe him? The would be too confused to even know what it is going on. It would be so much simpler for prophets to say (or for God to tell the prophets) "God created 2 people, they made the rest." That is something that people could accept and understand.
This still sounds awful, but I will post it anyways because I spent time writing it. But forget this thread, I am going to go eat lunch. I am hungry and I like food.

You're trying to explain why the bible is wrong with some crackpot theory. No Christian ever confessed that the bible was wrong since man's translation of god's word is flawed and thus not perfect. There is actually a quote (which I don't remember exactly) but it mentioned something along the lines of "the prophets that wrote the bible did so through god/jesus' guidance".
By the way, the Earth being older than 6000 years was not common sense for a very long. And if this wasn't translated correctly, then who knows what else wasn't translated correctly either! Maybe Adam and Eve were translated incorrectly too and god just expected us to eventually use common sense to understand that evolution is the correct theory. Do we stop there? Why not just say the bible is wrong altogether.
Oh wait, we already are...
I am Christian, and I think the very fact that it was written by man means it is not perfect. Also the fact that the books have been altered and some have been removed by a council of priests makes it hard to believe that the bible is God's exact words.
As far as the earth being more than 6000 years old not being common sense, that applied to my point about if God said how old the earth actually is, I don't think Judaism would have spread because I highly doubt most people back then knew what a billion was and they would have sounded crazy talking about numbers that people don't understand. Therefore God said 6000 years and I think he wanted people to go with science when it was proved to be older.
I worded it pretty badly because I just woke up, but my point was that mistranslations would make the bible not perfect, but I think a majority of the the big contradictions with modern science (age of the earth, evolution and stuff like that) are due to the fact that if they were revealed back then, not only would people not understand but Judaism/Christianity would not have spread.

Mar 12, 2010Posted in: NewsQuote from "ScyberDragon" »What news is this. Where did they talk about the fifth class, lore, and story line? Right now, there is very little "news" and we on the news team try to share everything announced about the game.
I should have known better than to try to use sarcasm on the internet. I was joking, I know there is no news coming out of blizzard and I'm glad you guys report every little tidbit of information that sneaks out of Blizzard.
I though I was pretty obvious on the sarcasm but it is hard to pick up over text and I guess there are some people who are critical of what the news team puts out. I hope you didn't get too offended when you thought I was being serious.
Mar 12, 2010His job is to report the news, but I agree. Scyber with the plethora of news coming out of Blizzard now a days why choose this? I mean are you just glossing over all the facts coming out about the story line, 5th class and added lore and picking news that we already knew?Posted in: News
But in all seriousness, some people have yet to concede that Blizzard has denied the healing class. There was a thread discussing a healing class that popped up really recently.
Feb 10, 2010I kind of hope I get picked but my computer can't run it. I would laugh my ass off. Then go up to all my friends who like Starcraft and say "I got into the Starcraft II beta." They would probably freak out and start asking all kinds of question and then all I can say is "My computer can't run it."Posted in: News
I have a weird sense of humor.
Feb 10, 2010Posted in: Newsyou get to opt in, go to battle.net and make your battle.net account you can then click on sc2 beta settings and send them your system specs. Then you may be chosen to become a beta testa!
I really wish my computer could run something like starcraft II. But I'm not even going to bother trying to sign up for it because there is no way my computer is up for it.
