    posted a message on Examination of Vagueness in Writing and its Usefulness
    Quote from fictitiousspoon »
    That is kind of the point of the book, is it not? The way I read it, it's sort of questioning of one's ability to define and determine what reality is, as well as the changeable nature of humanity when it comes to what is "true". So to have given the reader the truth at the ending would sort of destroyed the point of the book.

    The book was just more of an example of what we have been reading in class, but yes, I know what you mean.
    I'm not saying vagueness is bad writing, but in some works it just seems to be an excuse for laziness.

    It would be nice and dandy to see my entire kingdom in one frame, but alas it may take a while to get this implemented.
    Good idea to make it however!

    Wow all the atheists is astounding. Pretty much every religion percentage site claims 2.1 billion Christians I am wondering where they all are because even though we outnumber 2 to 1 there is like three times as many atheists. O_O

    The internet is not a good cross-section of human-kind.
    If you go to Drudgereport you will find Republicans.
    If you go to youtube you will find a younger audience.
    If you go to facebook you will find more social people.
    If you go to 4chan you will find people with darker humor.
    If you go to Mexico you will find Mexicans, and in Europe, Europeans.
    Generalizations, while not 100% correct, are safe to make.

    It should be okay, I won't be around to play it, but I can only hope it's as good as the other two.
    I can only say though that they can never replicate the grandness of 1942.

    posted a message on Crashed Alien Pod, What'cha Think? (Pictures)
    The end of the sphere was being screwed out from within. Nearly two feet of shining screw projected. Somebody blundered against me, and I narrowly missed being pitched onto the top of the screw. I turned, and as I did so the screw must have come out, for the lid of the sphere fell upon the stone with a ringing concussion. I stuck my elbow into the person behind me, and turned my head towards the Thing again. For a moment that circular cavity seemed perfectly black. I had the sunset in my eyes.

    I think everyone expected to see a man emerge -- possibly something a little unlike us terrestrial men, but in all essentials a man. I know I did. But, looking, I presently saw something stirring within the shadow: greenish billowy movements, one above another, and then two luminous squares -- like eyes. Then something resembling a little green pillar, about the thickness of a tree, sticking up out of the smoking middle, and moving in the air towards me -- and then another.

    In 1984, it's heavily implied Big Brother is just a figurehead and the rockets are launched from the government onto their own citizens to help keep the war on people's minds.

    Yes, I understand this, but it is never confirmed.
    I want yes, I want no, I want truth.


    Any more certainty than what they gave would make it seem like Orwell thought his readers were too stupid to come to the conclusion he wanted them to.

    I mean holy ****, what's-his-face (I haven't read it in a few months, nor am I in a very good state mentally right now) essentially told the protagonist that Big Brother was a figurehead, and that every member of the Inner-party was at least somewhat insane.

    I understood I would get this reaction as people often like this writing, but in truth, I prefer "the cat is red, the house is blue" more than I do slight vagueness.

    posted a message on Are you born homosexual?
    Quote from CG62 »
    I'm tempted to believe everyone is born bisexual, and society forges them one way or another.

    Like, I got over my homophobia just recently and I can now imagine myself in a relationship with another man. It didn't feel like I was learning something new, but rather removing an existing impediment.


    Speaking of bisexuality I have often thought *although I am straight, and not gay at all* that being 100% straight, or 100% gay is the wrong way to be, as it excludes half love. It's as if I choose one path just because I like women parts, or the other because I like male parts. Bisexuality however can expand upon that to just be for love and nothing else. However in most bisexuality cases I have seen, it's just that they like both parts.

    In my eyes Sealand is just a pathetic attempt at trying to get attention to be a Wikipedia article.
    I would much rather see an oil rig type project, it would be more interesting than two cylinders and a few buildings.
