I'm not really concerned about swineQuote from "Siaynoq" »I thought those clips were of the H1N1 vaccine and he was pretending they were about the Eggo waffles. Guess I overestimated the joke.
My concern goes considerably deeper

Chinese calendar's year of the cow . . .

bird . . .

Oct 27, 2009You people have blown this way out of proportion. The users are what ultimately define this site, not the administration. Stop being so petty and realize that what binds us, isn't this site, but a common interest we all share.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)

Dec 10, 2009It's been a while guys, and for some reason, I had my account banned in the process, but I got things worked out thanks to Sixen and I've decided to return to what is now called www.diablofans.com I left a while ago, much before alot of your guys came to this site. I was one of the first to reach a 1,000 posts, but I can see I have some work to do to fill my absence. I will try to do my best to add colorful and insightful posts to everything I can.Posted in: Introduction
Dec 8, 2009I think the fact that Bashiok only replied with an "incorrect", really signifies but one thing.Posted in: News & Announcements
The person who had made that comment was so far from the truth that it just, didn't nrequire any more than a word of reply.
Meaning that what Zhar said in his post, I believe, was only the tip of the iceberg. I think were going to see something that's going to blow our fucking minds away. Our simpleton and divided imaginations couldn't begin to fathom the ideas that are being developed by the giant that is Blizzard.
All the masterminds and lords of the gaming universe are going to provide us with another decade of maddening click-fests, pwnage pvp, and L33t character builds.
Were talking about a motherload worth of customization. this is going to be 1998 all over again. Were going to see new concepts and builds years after release. :thumbsup:
Nov 15, 2009Got one long word to describe this movie: dummmmmmmmmmmb.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
Holy crap, was this movie dumb. Not that I expected anything good from it. I knew it would totally suck balls. But wow.....I don't even really go to movies anymore because theaters are terrible places to see movies. There are few people I know personally that I would actually enjoy watching movies with. Why would I want to sit in a large room with people who are annoying and eat their "buttered" popcorn that smells like fried piss.
Um anyway, so this movie....neutrinos are turning the Earth's crust into liquid apparently and the Sun just had it's biggest ever solar flare which apparently seems to occur every so many hundreds of thousands of years. For some reason the solar flare doesn't kill everyone off right away from the radiation or heat, but instead gradually melts the planet's crust. Oh and the alignment of all the planets apparently has something to do with it as well I guess.
So the world is gonna end and there's gonna be lots of swelling dramatic music. If you are a fan of Hollywood cliches this is the movie for you. Some of my favorites were lines like, "Mr. President, have to go. We're out of time." And the President says, "Make the time!" That's physically impossible to make time. Or you know when there is a cliff that someone might have fallen off of? So the people in the plane are like, "He's gone! We have to go..." But then it shows the cliff for some reason all by itself. I don't suppose they're just showing that cliff to remind the audience how that character just died, are they? Oh of course not, they're showing the cliff's edge just so we can see a hand reach up and grab onto it, showing us that character is in fact not dead. Cause the only way Hollywood knows how to reassure the audience that the guy who went off the cliff did not actually die is to just show the edge of the cliff by itself and then show a hand grab onto it from below.
So everyone is trying to get to China cause that's where they built these huge fuck off boats that everyone wants to get on cause when everything is flooded, they will survive on the ships until they can find land. So they talk about having a sustainable gene pool and having the best minds survive and all that. I thought arguing for the sustainable gene pool was funny because at the same time they are loading giraffes, hippos, and elephants onto this "ark". They seriously are doing this. This is stupid for too many reasons. First of all, why is it necessary to preserve these wild African animals? If you're gonna stock a bunch of animals on your boat, why not just do the ones that are food? Put pigs, cows, sheep, and chickens on the boat. Was there plan to make these safari animals survive in the new society? For what purpose? And you can't just stick a couple animals in a place and expect them to make babies. Wild animals breed under very particular conditions that involve climate and habitat, some even elevation.
With Noah, we can forgive him for being so stupid for a couple reasons. One was because he thought God talked to him, telling him to make a boat. Second because he could've sworn he heard God tell him two put two of each animal on this boat so the species could survive. If I was writing that movie, I would try to downplay the similarities of the story to Noah's Ark as much as possible. But it actually showed these big helicopters carrying elephants in a harness through the Himalayan Mountains. Can you imagine that. And this was when they all knew a big tidal wave would be hitting in a day or so. It's like some kind of priority to get these animals on the boat? What excuse did these scientists have for being so stupid?
Oh, and no stupid Hollywood movie would be complete without romantic subplots. Cause apparently when the world is ending we still give a shit that people want to be romantic and kiss each other rather than just fuck each other like monkeys because the world is about to end. The main character is divorced and you suspect him and his ex-wife will get back together after some nice moments of apocalyptic bonding. But we can't let them get back together before tragically killing her new husband. Because if they just got back together with the new husband still alive than I might think they're dicks and I'll be a confused audience member.
Oh and this movie also takes place in an alternate universe where tires can never go flat. Cars can jump over great distances and heights and not even lose a hubcap. Do you have any idea what the odds are wrecking your car in Los Angeles just by running a red light? But this guy drives through plenty while dodging cars, driving through collapsed buildings, and raping the laws of physics. All the while never having a blowout.
And what was up with that Russian pilot? That was like the fakest most hackneyed Russian accent I ever heard. Anyway, I hated this movie. It sucked. There wasn't one thing I liked about it. And even the special effects were really boring which was why most of you went to see this movie: the special effects.
Oh yeah, and how come in Hollywood movies whenever the need arises, a person can transform into an expert swimmer who can hold their breath for like five minutes at a time? Even little kids in Hollywood movies all have this super power.
Oct 27, 2009I've been reading through the forum for a few mins, and I've seen the word Noob, Newb, NOOBZ at least 50 times.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
I was just wondering, since this trilogy has been around for a long time:
-Diablo I, 1996
-Diablo II, 1999
-Diablo II: LOD, 2001
-Diablo III: Estimate at December 2010
Most of the people have played this game from the beginning in 1996, or was it 97? Well, obviously, a game this big is going to get a few million more sales than D2 got, and we will see a bunch of people who have NEVER played any of the Diablo games.
I was wondering what would you call these people. Do you think the word noob will cut it? Lets see if you guys can come up with a word to call all those people who have no idea wtf they are doing. (We all know that feeling when we start a new game thats been around for a long time)
Try coming up with a new word that we (diablo fans) can call "noobs" other than "noobs". Maybe it would catch on if its catchy enough?
Oct 21, 2009Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)Quote from "Umpa65" »So your blaming me for their rep spam? Sounds like somebody is mad that they didn't have 2 boxes. Well, lets fix that. I shall spam some good rep your way. Feel loved.
Karma works for every instance. They will get theirs.
I wasn't blaming you for anything that anyone else did.
It sounded like you were mad that you lost your two boxes, and I was pointing out that your indignation about receiving negative rep was silly, since much of the rep that gave you two boxes was pretty much artificial to begin with because of all the rep-spamming that has been going on since you guys started it in the Million-Post thread.
It didn't carry much weight before that point because people rarely used it, but now that you folks have abused it over the past few months, the system is meaningless.
And getting upset because someone took something away from you that you didn't really earn in the first place is also meaningless.
Oct 13, 2009I really don't think the rep system is used as intended anyways.Posted in: General Discussion (non-Diablo)
It really all depends on if the readers like your or not - not really if you prove a good point or put forth useful information.
People rep the most useless of posts at times which is beyond my understanding.
I'm just happy to be out of the negative. lol
