Legend of Zelda: Four Swords Anniversary Edition is...
Kinda boring by yourself. I need more people to play it with. It needs something resembling a wifi matching system. It needs more computer controlled characters in single player mode. Its still cool. But then I look at how Sony does their handheld games with internet, and then back at Nintendo… If there’s something Sony did right with the way their machines interact with each other (ad hoc party I’m looking at you). Why can’t you learn from example Nintendo? >.<
“Religion is for people who have never matured in their understanding of ethics. Religion teaches a child’s view of ethics, that “being good” means “obeying your parent.” It gives a moral blank check to those bold enough, dishonest enough, to claim to speak for God. Atheism means looking at ethical questions as an adult among other adults, considering ethics as a means of maintaining peace and cooperation among equals, so that all may pursue happiness within the limits that ethics defines

“I think that the internet as it is now, primitive(stupid) and young(stupid), is somewhat analogous to the older lizard part of our brains. It is full of fear, hate, rage, sex, and stupid shit. It has it’s bright spots and shiny interesting things but they are at times few and far between. I know the anger you feel when you read about the shit stains on civilizations underwear. I read the same shit and felt the same rage.
The world as it is sucks, but there’s nothing new about that. It’s been that way since we as a species had enough of a mind to notice. If you look at the massacres and horrors in our past, we are actually in a pretty miraculous time. We have actually survived having nuclear bombs in our possession for half a century. Tell me if you think the assholes of the past wouldn’t have killed the entire world given the proper application of technology.
I am fucking shocked on a daily basis by the shit I read on the internet and watch on TV, but there is no comparison to my continuing awe at our survival with nukes. We really should be dead but, wouldn’t you know it? We live on.
Corporations, wars, and thieves will come and go. People eventually get wise to the shit they are standing in and take some higher ground. There’s no point in going into politics to fix the system because it never worked in the first place. The fact we can function at all is another goddamn miracle. Our species has only gotten this far because there are the rare times that the even rarer individuals notice the shit we are all standing in and start ushering the rest of the herd up the hill. Our politics and politicians today are as they have always been, shit0shows and assholes. The internet, I think, may be our salvation of sorts but it is still currently shitting its pants and throwing up on us. The important thing is that it’s saying its first words; It is connecting us.
The written word gave us external memory but when it started out, there were few readers and writers. Mostly monks transcribing religious texts, which really were the Wikis of the day. The printing press then allowed for mass production, that brought countless more readers and writers into the fold, therefore more people with more diverse ideas could share their minds. TV and radio aren’t quite as revolutionary when it comes to sharing ideas, because the power of broadcast is held by the few. They were only stepping stones to the Internet.
The internet has given everyone a voice. The playing field has been leveled somewhat and I think as long as we can all hold onto this ground we’ve gained; things will get better. If you want to defend something, defend the internet. The web is something to enjoy, for sure, but that’s all the more reason to protect it. There’s a ton of stupid shit going on in the world, and it stands to reason it’s on the internet too. Try not to worry too much about it, accept it, not as it is, but for what it is.
In my opinion, cynicism is a good start to making things better but you can’t stop there. Start small, brighten someones day and then find someone else and do it again. The whole pay it forward thing does work. Those you help might not help others on the same level but they may be less inclined to feed kittens to wood-chippers. Hold onto your feelings of cynicism, just don’t let them eat you until you feel like feeding kittens to wood-chippers by the school playground.”—reddit.com
“I believe in the power of rational thought and critical thinking. I believe that we should live thoughtful, peaceful, moral lives because it’s the right thing to do and not because we’re afraid of punishment or hopeful for a reward beyond the grave. We have this one life, and we should make the best of it for the short time we are here.”—
