    I've installed everything the way it should have been installed and I get no audio at all. What may be the problem causing this?

    Well it's basically based on the same concept as a usual forum. So as long as you know your way around a forum you should be fine.

    posted a message on Hard Work vs. Talent
    Colleges are in no way perfect. I think its a load of crap half the time, having to fill my schedule with pre-requisites that I feel I've taken dozens of times already. Then I get to learn the big-boy stuff? It's just a way to take that much more money from us. As well as stupid fees like a gym fee. Yes I pay for a gym fee, even if I'm already signed up with another gym, what load is that?

    GPA will never honestly portray an individual because we all have unique talents. This is the only way the board of education thought up of, however.

    posted a message on Hard Work vs. Talent
    To comment on the OP I'd say most people are born with talents. Up until college/university you're finding your niche, and along the way you find certain talents.

    For instance, I love sciences, mostly medical sciences, thus I am studying to become a nurse. Now I noticed that I'm quite talented at chemistry, math, and things of that sort, I am untalented at history related courses. Sometimes your talents can help further your education, sometimes they have nothing to do with them, but in the end a talent can't be learned to an extent. I can't study to the point of being talented at history, because it's something I just don't get, I can do good in classes that deal with history, but it doesn't mean I've gained a talent in that area.

    Also entertainment greatly influences how well you do. I also find history boring, meaning I generally do worse even if I was talented. While I love functions & equations, this ends up making me better at math.

    That's at least how I see it.

    But that was my point. The cop isn't there to give his opinion on the law. He is there to do his job, enforce it. Regardless of what he thinks of it.


    Yes I understand your point, but officers aren't meant to be robots. They are humans, and they should act like it. You'd be surprised how much easier your job as an officer would be if you adopted this idea.

    I'm not saying that. I'm saying when a cop tells you to do something, as long as it does not place your life in danger, do it, and complain later, or get arrested and or beat up.



    It has a lot to do with making an impact. If that cop came up and didn't portray himself as the FORCE of the law, he could have been jumped and beaten up himself. He doesn't know who is in that crowd, so he had to make the point that he is not here as anyones friend, he is there to enforce that law and he will do everything in his power to do so.

    Let me give an easier example.

    You have a crowd of people gathered around a cake. It is against the law to eat that cake. Officer Doodles walks up and says "Hey guys you can't eat that cake" but he does nothing more. One person sticks his finger into the frosting and licks it off. "MMm that's good cake guys, you should try some" he says. Officer doodles does nothing. Soon everyone in the group is swarming the cake trying to get their piece and before you know it people are getting trampled and hurt and the cake is smashed and dirty and now nobody can have any.

    Now if when that man had stuck his finger in the cake, Officer Doodles has slapped his hand away and arrested him, do you think there would have been a cake stampede?


    Usually in situations like this (Large groups) police use escalated force IMMEDIATELY to show the group that they are not F-ing around. It can prevent a riot if people know that if they challenge that officer he's gonna pick them up and body slam them onto concrete

    and just before the "You have no idea what you're talking about" crap comes along. I was a police cadet for 10 years, and was in the process of becoming a Sheriff's Deputy in my county before a back injury put an end to my career. I know a few things about how the police operate


    That example is highly flawed though. I never said a good cop would just blindly avoid the conflict either. You have to be equally human as you are a police officer.

    Using your own example I'd say this would be a "good" cops reaction. They have the cake, he walks up and tells them "Guys I realize this law is stupid, but please don't eat that cake or I'll have to arrest/penalize you." That same one guy sticks his finger in it, the officer comes up to him and tells him "I told you not to do that, this will be your warning, if I catch you again, I will arrest you," granted the first statement was just him conversing with the crowd about his thoughts on the law. Most likely the guy will not continue, as a normal person would. Though let's say he does for the case of what may be the worst outcome. He continues to stick his finger and eat it, cop comes up to him. "I specifically told you not to continue, I understand how dumb this law may seem, but I warned you" now the cop can arrest him **WITHOUT** ground pounding, slamming, choking the person. He does a routine arrest, like most arrests should be, hands behind your head, etc... The full procedure, if he starts resisting than there is some lee-way.

    What I was trying to say is these cops showed no patience. Maybe it was their first arrest of the day, or their fifth. It doesn't matter, when you just want to arrest any unlawful activity you have become oblivious to human emotion and are no longer a police officer. Doing what they did makes you look like a tyrant, waiting to punish anyone for simple and stupid crimes no matter the consequences. I have friends whose fathers are police officers and they themselves believe any type of behavior coming from an officer that resembles the behavior showcased in the video usually requires the immediate resignation of the officer. They realize that they are protecting citizens of the United States, not harming them. It's known that people listen to reason rather than aggressive orders, getting hit, or harmed just makes you want to resist more, it's human instinct, as more pain is inflicted on us we strive to resist it by doing whatever motion possible to relieve the pain.

    This is a very slippery topic to start. I understand your concerns OP, trust me I dislike it as much as you do, but it can't be helped. Slowly the nation is embracing laws prohibiting public smoking, which I fully support. Though I don't expect it to ever be completely banned.

    It's sad to see officers follow orders blindly, or in this case laws. I can understand that dancing in any way is "unlawful" in that area, but jeez they didn't even laugh about it, or come up to them and converse about how they may agree that it is a pretty stupid law. I've seen my fair share of cop-related beatings but this is just depressing. There are good cops, who protect us, follow the law, but sometimes break their orders, and there are bad cops who follow orders blindly, possibly doing harm to innocent persons in the process. This is a demonstration of the latter.

    He's kidding, also, that person you quoted whitey took it beyond reasonable. He might as well be preparing for a damn war.

    Sorry, meant to say that only ones made specifically for Xbox (usually says it on the box) will work.

    I believe the Xbox has it's own headset, and is only compatible with those.

    I see, and I don't blame the lawmakers, I blame the enforcers. The law is there, it just isn't enforced as it should be.

    Well where I live we still require tests which should show how important proof of education is when getting a firearm.


    Was that meant to be an insult? I'm not quite understanding what you meant.

    Also I didn't say there was no test, the tests are there, just largely dumbed down, and ineffective.
