 If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals? travesti i am.

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

Thanks good job;

Btw, I think Atari and Midway will drop out too, but mostly travesti because  these guys have done nothing travesti or little and need to start saving costs. and dizi izle

YES.

Now I don't have to get off my ass for the important shit anymore!

Whats next, ordering pizza from Xbox live?

Wait... I think that sounds like a good idea.

But I think voting should MAKE you get off your ass, and see outside or a second while you go vote. I mean, your picking the president of the United States of America for God's Sake... least you can do is drive down there and punch out a card.

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

I'm all for freedom of ttnet vitamin speech and allowing rent a car game makers to put whatever they want in games, but there's one thing about this app that has me scratching my head.  Correct me if I'm wrong, but from araç kiralama the previous article araba kiralama on this I gathered that players can use Google maps in-game to find the other (real-life?) dealers in their area.  If this is the case, has travesti anyone considered what's stopping someone from using this app to actually move drugs between hands for reals?

But majority araba kiralama of their outrage araç kiralama stems from what it could DO TO children, not the content itself.  Talk to one of these people and you'll find they don't think any books kiralık araba should be banned from children.  Mention American Psycho and they talk about kiralık araç the redeeming value of using imagination to construct a story.  Reading, no matter what the content, is largely viewed as a consequenceless activity for people of any age.  The reason why I mention American Psycho is because of the content itself.  Gaming never has and likely never will have any scenes where someone has sex with a severed head.  Not gonna happen.  Yet despite this, they'll fight tooth and nail to protect their children from two boys kissing in Bully but whatever they read is harmless... yeah.

The entire arguement is kiralık oto based upon a social normality inflicted by luddites who can't figure out the controls for Halo so it's frightening and terrifying and obviously the cause of youth violence on the rise even though, in reality, it's in decline (which is actually a HUGE suprise given minibüs kiralama the economies status).  In  a perfect world, we would have parents that actually parent.  The idea of sales restrictions on media on oto kiralama any form to accomidate parental unwillingness to get involved with their child's life is the real problem to me.  Here I am, 32 years old, and being held up at a self-scan rent a car needing to show ID before I can buy a $10 M rated game all because Soccer Momthra can't be bothered to look at the crap Billy Genericallystupidson does in his free time.  It's too hard for her, so I have to suffer?

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

A gamer? When, back in the days of Pong? I can't recall any biography giving a mention of that.

You would also want to point out his previous battles, with Janet Reno and specifically hip-hop and radio. Jack didn't like the raunchy lyrics of 2 Live Crew and I think managed to prevent the sale of one album. But when gangster rap turned from a fringe style into a mainstream phenomenon I think it caused him to give up on this war. Also, video games seem more appealing because why decare war against thugs when nerdy boys are an easier target?

In a parallel world, where Jack is victorious against radio and games, what does he do next? Because he fails so much in the real world, we don't know what his limits are. After neurtering the game companies, what are his career goals, what is his next highlight? I think deep inside Jack wishes the roller coaster in his career never stops because he's having too much fun attacking the game industry.

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

@ Meat

A few things to consider.  jackie for all his pomp and self glory used to be a gamer.  He found he could not control his time with games (weak willed I guess) and broke with them the way a man does from his wife.  Violent and angry, making statements that often out of place and generally being pissed.  Given his way jackie would end all games, all of them.  He does not care about saving the kiddies except how it can advance his arguement (which needless to say needs alot of help). 

Nope he is not so selfless or noble (yes I used the work noble in a sentence containing the idea of jackie and the universe did not end... er I think it didn't).  He wants nothing less then control over all games.  Or to put it a different way, he wants to do to the video game industry what was done to big tobacco.  A few things in the way. 

1) JBT needs to prove that games are dangerous to the public good (think lung cancer or some such).  He has been chasing his school shootings with that intention, trying to prove that games are the root of the evil. 

2) Adults cannot be denied access to the games.  Period.  Adults cannot be denied access their choice of music,  porn (another soapbox of jackie's) and cannot be denied access to alcohol. 

With 2 in mind it seems that jackie aimed a bit lower and went after the ESRB claiming their rating system was not adequate (he suggested another rating system/test  whose name eludes me) and of course had to show that the kiddies were getting the games.  If he could get the games pulled due to the kiddies then he would have had his precedent to control games overall.   Anything that attempted to interfere with this was all due to a some vast conspiracy (probably by the games that used to own his soul such as it is) that wanted to silence him. 

To wrap it all up into a package though, he needed a selling point, a platform and that is where the religious bits came in.  Most americans have been exposed to religion and most are not resistant to it and kind of expect some weird things to be said in the name of IT.  Never underrestimate the power of Religion, it was what sold the idea of prohibition to the public. 

Lucky for us the gamers and the sane world at large (I am pretty sure there are at least a few sane ones out there somewhere) jackie had the gift of fail.  He pushed and prodded to much and when things did not go the way he wanted he threw fits, called names and other mature activities.  Bring wrath upon himself that all this wiggling cannot get him out of. 

The rest is known and leads us to the present.  Where any moment now the Florida Bar, Rock Star, Take 2, the ECA, Dennis, This site of course and half the known world will fall before the might that is JBT. 

Of course he might be delusional and just be tossing another hissy fit. 

All the above is My opinion of course.  But remember that rumor has a core in fact. 

 

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

it's really too bad about Jack Thompson.  i do believe that there should be people advocating children and public safety.  the ESRB already does a great job of that; their labelling system is far more informational and strict than that of movies.  fines are far harsher for selling video games to minors than movies or guns.  he could be working with them, suggesting improvements and debating things in which he believes.  instead, he is actually being counter-productive to the creation of safety measures.  his vitriolic comments, constant offensive attacks and inability to take criticism reduce and effectively nullify his message, if any true moral message actually existed.  freedom of religion does not give one the right to break laws; this is especially true for a lawyer that has willingly accepted adherence to a stricter code by virtue of taking the bar exam.  the faster he is out of the spotlight, the easier it will be for true child and safety advocates to work towards goals that implement their concerns without using censorship.

Phoenix and Apollo all the way; JT might actually LEARN something by playing those games :P

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

Putting Mr. Thompson's face on Von Karma would have been much more apropriate.

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

No, no, that would imply competance.  Jack is a lot like Phoenix, really, in that he relies heavily on bluffing to get his way.

Thankfully, Judge Tunis is no Judge... Judgingham, or whatever the PW:AA judge's name is.

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

Nah, I think Winston Payne would have been more suitable. He loses faster.

GOD SPEAKS! LISTEN!

John Bruce Thompson is a habitual liar.

I know this because I am Lord and I know all things, but more obviously because every statement of fact that he presents in making these claims about the causal effect of violent video games are simply untrue, incorrect, misleading, and intentional misinformation meant to further his so-called spiritual agenda, if not a financial one, despite his insistence otherwise.

It would seem that at least for Mr. Thompson, the road to a pure nation is paved with comfortable dishonesty and calloused disregard for truth.  It's like Jesus camp, but for adults.  If we believe it, and if we say it with enough gusto, than we'll surely convince others, and at some point also convince ourselves.  I encourage you all to consider just how powerful self deception actually is, and the simple truth that if you tell a lie enough - insane as it may seem - even you will begin to believe it.  And John Bruce has.  Too many lies, unfortunately.

The format for dealing with Mr. Thompson is the same format in which he's been contending with the Bar and Judge Tunis, which is an environment where he must be accountable for everything that he claims, says, and does.  When you see him on Fox News, he's able to spout notions as if they were fact, and when they're questioned or contradicted, he's able to insult or talk-over his opponent until the debate becomes so muddy and worthless that it doesn't really matter what's been said - the seeds of misinformation have been planted. 

Within the court room, however, and figuratively speaking, once "Jack" opens his mouth, he's then frozen, and his statements are analyzed, argued against, proven, or disproven.  There is no rhetoric or flashy preaching or shouting across the deck.  "Jack" says X.  We find X to be untrue.  And because "Jack" said X with demonstrable intent to humiliate or insult, we find that "Jack" has knowingly misrepresented the facts with malice.  Pretty cut-and-dry, pretty inarguable. 

Speaking as the originator of the Christian Faith and Church, I can honestly say that you disappoint me, John.  My message is not a message of hate.  And if I was humble enough to consort with the prostitutes and thieves, and to give kindness and patience and mercy to the worst of sinners, what makes you so righteous that you can condemn so many without the slightest compassion or grace?  Are you so consumed with your battle to save the children, that you readily wound the Church of God?  Do you really believe that you can compel the world to seek ME by tirelessly and deviously harassing them until they beg for the altar of the lamb?  Haven't I told you to let your life be a testimony?  Haven't I instructed you to - by example of your life and conduct - show the light of God to the world?  What makes you think that to spread the gospel, you must abandon tact and discretion? 

John Bruce Thompson, I am The LORD your GOD, and I am ashamed of you.  Deeply and irrevocably and utterly disgusted with your representation of MY values, MY Church, and MY people.  As was once said... "Of what value is the prize if it is stolen, or the loaf of bread if it is undercooked?". 

You are not a Christian, Mr. Thompson.  You are not even an honest heathen.  I'm afraid that at least in your public conduct, you show some of the most embarrassing traits of humanity.  That is... you are a hypocrite, a cruel man, a self-righteous liar, and an idiot so obsessed with your own crusade that you barely seem to recognize that you're torturing innocent people.  You may be religious, but a Christian you are not.  You may be sincere, but sadly only sincerely twisted.

And for those of you who've bothered to read this far, here's a fun fact for you...

The term "idiot" (a form of the word idiom) was first used to describe mental patients that were so removed from reality (and trapped in their own reality), that they simply couldn't interact meaningfully with the world around them.  They were "trapped in themselves".  And so, when I call Mr. Thompson an idiot, it's actually not to insult him, it's to accurately describe him.  The so-called man is very much living in his own mind. 

Love, Jesus. 

P.S.  Please let the gay people get married.  We permit it in Heaven and you have NO idea how fantastic the decorating is up here.  You should see my bedroom.  Rick and Tim put it together and it's FAB!

Hey jesus, can we talk... its about the mexican village incident. you know the 30 murders... should i come forward or stay hidden... im kinda worried about where im going when i die.. thanks

Re: GOD SPEAKS! LISTEN!

If you can somehow put a rich white Republican in a position to profit from your freedom, than I think you'll be just fine no matter how much you deserve to go to jail.

Re: GOD SPEAKS! LISTEN!

My first thought was, ban jesus.  But on second thought, I think I would be more amused by jack-o's reaction. You know you're toast as soon as EZK or Dennis finds you right?  Not that I disagree with any of your points really, I don't, but the point is moot.  If they really wanted to do something about the sanctity of marriage they'd work on the divorce rate.

Re: GOD SPEAKS! LISTEN!

If I'm not allowed to say such things on this board, than banning me makes sense for all parties involved.  When you take away that darn "Freedom of Speech" idea, than moving on just makes sense.

But at least be fair and also ban the fool quoting Bible verse and suggesting the immorality of the homesexual lifestyle.  To allow one idea but not the opposing, would be... well... pure "Jack Thompson".

Re: GOD SPEAKS! LISTEN!

sorry, but whoever you are using the name of the Lord.. you just failed...

Re: GOD SPEAKS! LISTEN!

I forget, was that law before or after the one that forbade people from eating shrimp cocktail or the law where wearing a polyester-cotton blend was punishable by death?

Re: GOD SPEAKS! LISTEN!

I think you miss the point, which is that I - God - don't truly exist, and that "The Bible" is THE original epic of fiction.

Yet you did take the time to make sure we all know how detestable those fags are.

And so...

To suggest that gay men and women shouldn't be married because some archaic manual you reference when you want to make a crude point happens to say so... is... simply... of imaginary importance.

When you're done quoting God's abhorence toward the gays... find me the verse where he explains the purpose in the Holocaust, or the Russian gulags, or 9-11, or any of the other unholy tragedies you like to file neatly under his holy "mysterious ways" and "divine but unfathomable purpose".

Because a man, putting his dick in the ass of another man, is clearly more of an immediate problem than understanding why countless thousands of innocent Jews were incinerated in the strikingly similar name of "purity", including many young children that screamed and cried for a "God" to save them as they burned alive, and were not saved.

And speaking of detestable homosexuality... where is your God when young alter boys are put to their knees so "Men of God" and so-called "Priests" can force their cocks into pre-pubescent mouths?  Is he on vacation?  Is he "allowing this to happen for a reason" because clearly the devastating molestation of hundreds of young Catholic parishoners is something that's going to make them better people, more spiritual, and somehow more able to fulfil "God's" purpose for them?

I suppose, yes, that if I were actually able to put my life back together after my local Father fucked me where I stink, that I might somehow find some sort of amazing inner strength in that process, and that yes, it might make me so much more wonderful than I'd have been if I'd had an otherwise uneventful and tragedy free existence.  Not to mention a lack of hemmorhoids because nothing was forced up my ass.

I'm not missing anything, am I?

I can only wonder if Matthew Shepard's attackers quoted that same verse before they killed him...

P.S.  If I were your boss at work, I'd have been fired ages ago.  Who else gets to sit there while genocide happens in Burma - having complete control over it - but without being accountable in any way?  Talk about tenure!

Not to contradict the Lord Himself, but idiot was originally a term in the polis for someone who kept to themselves and didn't share their opinions publicly for the good of the demos. Idiots had something to hide, and that wasn't good for society.

I take solice in the fact that not only is Jack a sniveling man- child but if he tries this crap again in 10 years he'll be even more of a laughingstock. Eat it, Jack!

Re: Audio of Jack Thompson Storming Out of Court

10 years from now all of these kids who are being trained on "murder simulators" will be fully functional, productive, ADULT members of society.  Jack doesn't seem one to let facts get in the way of what he believes, but it'll be harder to convince anyone there's a problem if nothing happened for 10 years.

MaskedPixelanteNah, I'm fine purple monkey dishwasher.07/28/2014 - 4:05pm
Sleaker@MP - I hope you didn't suffer a loss of your mental faculties attempting that.07/28/2014 - 3:48pm
MaskedPixelanteOK, so my brief research looking at GameFAQs forums (protip, don't do that if you wish to keep your sanity intact.), the 3DS doesn't have the power to run anything more powerful than the NES/GBC/GG AND run the 3DS system in the background.07/28/2014 - 11:01am
ZenMatthew, the 3DS already has GBA games in the form of the ambassador tittles. And I an just as curious about them not releasing them on there like they did the NES ones. I do like them on the Wii U as well, but seems weird. And where are the N64 games?07/28/2014 - 10:40am
james_fudgeNo. They already cut the price. Unless they release a new version that has a higher price point.07/28/2014 - 10:19am
E. Zachary KnightMatthew, It most likely is. The question is whether Nintendo wants to do it.07/28/2014 - 10:12am
Matthew WilsonI am sure the 3ds im more then powerful enough to emulate a GBA game.07/28/2014 - 9:54am
Sleaker@IanC - while the processor is effectively the same or very similar, the issue is how they setup the peripheral hardware. It would probably require creating some kind of emulation for the 3DS to handle interfacing with the audio and input methods for GBA07/28/2014 - 9:30am
Sleaker@EZK - hmmm, that makes sense. I could have sworn I had played GB/GBC games on it too though (emud of course)07/28/2014 - 9:23am
E. Zachary KnightSleaker, the DS has a built in GBA chipset in the system. That is why it played GBA games. The GBA had a seperate chipset for GB and GBColor games. The DS did not have that GB/GBC chipset and that is why the DS could not play GB and GBC games.07/28/2014 - 7:25am
IanCI dont think Nintendo ever gave reason why GBA games a reason why GBA games aren't on the 3DS eshop. The 3DS uses chips that are backwards compatable with the GBA ob GBA processor, after all.07/28/2014 - 6:46am
Sleakerhmmm that's odd I could play GBA games natively in my original DS.07/28/2014 - 1:39am
Matthew Wilsonbasically "we do not want to put these games on a system more then 10 people own" just joking07/27/2014 - 8:13pm
MaskedPixelanteSomething, something, the 3DS can't properly emulate GBA games and it was a massive struggle to get the ambassador games running properly.07/27/2014 - 8:06pm
Andrew EisenIdeally, you'd be able to play such games on either platform but until that time, I think Nintendo's using the exclusivity in an attempt to further drive Wii U sales.07/27/2014 - 7:21pm
Matthew WilsonI am kind of surprised games like battle network are not out on the 3ds.07/27/2014 - 7:01pm
Andrew EisenWell, Mega Man 1 - 4, X and X2 are already on there and the first Battle Network is due out July 31st.07/27/2014 - 6:16pm
