  1. I have no idea how, but it works on the Lite now.
  2. The Blackangel

    PS2.

    Dumpster diving for food, almost freezing to death in winter, soul crushing boredom. And all of it for a span of 3 years. Yeah, it sucked.
  3. Everyone always picks countries with the big draws. UK for Stonehenge. Egypt for the pyramids. China for the great wall. You never really hear about some of the smaller and more obscure countries. I never would have even thought of Croatia, as I don't even know what's there that would entice me to take the trip.
  4. My heritage is a few less than you guys. On my mothers side it would be dominantly German and to a lesser extent Irish and Scottish. On my fathers side is 100% Scottish Celt. More than 70% of my entire heritage is from the Highlands. It's why I have spent the last several years searching for someone who is fluent that would be willing to teach me Scottish Gaelic. So far either no one knows it, or they're just not interested despite the fact that I'm willing to pay.
  5. It has broadened my horizons and introduced to many great games, that are for the most part out of my comfort zone. In gaming I have always heavily favored fantasy games. Zelda has always topped that list. But since being here I have been introduced to games like RDR2, Hellblade: Senua's Sacrifice, Layers Of Fear, Cuphead, and Blasphemous, just to name a few. There are others that I have won in the bidding, that I had no idea existed, but upon watching the trailer for them enjoyed the hell out of the game. I have found countless games that I otherwise would have never known existed, many that are genre's that I have never enjoyed before. RDR2 being the obvious example.
  6. I always heard that English is the hardest language to learn as a second language. But if that's so, then why is English the international language of trade?
  7. There is a game I play a lot, where the protagonist dies in the end. After playing as that protagonist, in a world gone crazy, I actually cried. I felt like I had lost a piece of myself that I have spent the last damn near 40 years searching for. But, since I can easily just start playing the game again, I can always get back to that protagonist. I'm giving no names of any kind because I don't like spoilers, and even though it's an old game, there may be someone here who develops an inquisitive mind and decides they want to check it out. But, either way, when all is said and done, I love being a classic gamer.
  8. I have to agree here. I'm a classic, or "retro" gamer as it is, and I don't consider anything past the PS1/N64 era classic/retro. Something that burns my ass, is when people call things like Wii retro. I'm willing to slap you for that. If you're going to go that far, then you better start calling PS4 and Xbox One retro, since their next gen systems are out. Retro is old and obsolete technology. Games that are purely cartoony looking (not Cuphead) or have hard corners in their design. Mario 64 has a lot of hard corners. Zelda Link To The Past is cartoony. And don't get me started on the abomination that was Wind Waker.
  9. We all know that these stories are bullshit, with maybe an ungodly rare exception here or there. Maybe one suicide happened somewhere in the world that could have been related to the Lavender Town theme. But I highly doubt that Ben is haunting a video game cartridge. There are, however, some that can much more easily be fact checked. The Madden Curse is a perfect example. Find out who is on what cover, and see how their seasons went after appearing on the game. I think I've mentioned it before, but I have played a game in an arcade that used to be here that was called Polybius. I know that it wasn't the infamous Polybius. But it had the same name, and was a polygonal game.
  10. I already said that they're all functional.
  11. You have to have 1000 subscribers before you can get your channel monetized. 999 won't cut it. It's all explained within your channel in the YouTube Studio. 100 subscribers gets you the option of personalizing your YT link, and 1000 gets you the ability to have your videos monetized so you can try to make some money off of them. But to make anything, view count matters just as much as subscriber count. If you have 1½ million subscribers, and a video only gets 4 views, you're not going to make a dime on that video. It's all a numbers game.
  12. I'm not exactly sure when or how the feature went out, but I was looking at the settings on my Lite a couple days ago and noticed that now it has Bluetooth capabilities. It's been great to have enabled finally. It also means I won't have to buy a new Switch just for this one feature. I don't know how many Switch players we have here, but if this has been bugging the hell out of you, then you should check your settings. It's a green light on my end. I don't have any kind of Nintendo subscriptions, but I have bought a great deal (well over 100) of games on the eShop. I don't know if that plays a role or not, but I doubt it.
  13. I can see this having answers almost exclusively from the women here.
  14. Prison scrubs. They're more comfortable. Just trust me on this one.
  15. That's heritage. Lineage is specific members of your family. Your lineage is your parents, grand parents, great grandparents, etc. etc. etc. But to answer the question, I've looked at mine all the way back to the late 18th century. It's fairly interesting to me to see my line back then.
  16. Aside from a bra, I haven't worn underwear in years.
  17. If it's an extremely hot day, a cold shower is the perfect thing. I don't dry off completely, I just mop up the heavy water that is still on my body, and leave the rest alone.
  18. Europe. There's too much I want to see there, and I've been to the Caribbean several times already. I want to see something new.
  19. You all know my obsession with astronomy. So my choice is obviously the moon. da Vinci didn't find it all that useful. He designed wooden shoes that bouied his weight perfectly and allowed him to walk on water. He saw no real advantage to is, as the only time it could have a purpose is if you were on a sinking ship. But if that were the case you would die from exhaustion trying to fight the waves to stay upright.
  20. I have the ability to lie. I'm extremely skilled and very convincing. Manipulation is an ability I have had for as long as I can remember. I'm the most convincing liar a person could meet. But I'm honest to a fault. I don't lie unless I have to, or if I'm goofing and making up shit. I could tell you all that I'm 7' tall and pure muscle. You know that's bullshit. I could tell you that I live in KCMO, and that would be plausible, because all I've ever revealed about my location is that I live in Missouri. If a person isn't a good liar, and most aren't, it's beyond easy to tell that they're lying. But being able to lie convincingly qualifies you to run for politics. Dupe enough people to believe your bullshit, and you're elected. Honesty is a much better policy, and making good on your promises will endear you more to those who matter to you. One thing people don't do when they lie, is pick something realistic, and keep up with that lie. They always pick something that is either impossible or simply doesn't line up with other facts in evidence. You have to remember and maintain that lie, as well as making sure it doesn't contradict something that could prove them both to be bullshit. Most don't have that skill. They get all nervous, trip over their words, and tense up when they're trying to keep up with it. They're amateurs, and don't have a clue what they're doing. But either way, there's a time and place for everything.
  21. I was a bull rider when I was a teen, and I can promise you that being a bull fighter is much easier than a bull rider. For starters, What kind of wrap are you going to use on the bull? Split finger? Full hand? Butterfly? Second, do you know how to lean on the bull when you're on it? Third, do you know what to do when you get hung up? Fourth, do you know the right spurs to wear? Fifth, do you know where to look while you're riding? Sixth, do you know where to sit on the bull? Seventh, do you know where to position your legs to hold on to the bull? Eighth, do you know what you do with the arm that's not tied to the bull? The job of a bull fighter is to distract the bull so the bull rider can get to his/her feet and be able to get to safety. The majority of the time, the bull just wants out of the arena, and stands there until the gate opens. Often it's other bull riders that are out there to distract it as the bull fighters. They're on their feet the whole time. The bull rider has to stay on the bull and keep a proper ride. That's 2000+ pounds of pure muscle trying to throw you. There are bulls that have never been able to be ridden. There are bulls that are purely lethal, due simply to how they buck. The deadliest bull ever was Bodacious. He knew how to wait until the rider leaned forward before he threw his head up into the face of the bull rider. Millions upon millions of dollars have been spent on plastic surgery across bull riding by the ones who tried to ride him and got busted up. As for being pierced by the horns, that's not a possibility. The bulls horns are either cut to blunt tips, or completely removed. They couldn't pierce melted butter.
  22. After a week of inability to speak, and isolation, I'm back. I honestly wasn't sure if I would ever return to any of the forums I post on. But I'm back here at least. And truth be told, I actually missed this place. There are things that I still need to deal with in this whole situation, but I'm making some minimal progress. I've made plans to fly out to Indiana next month to hopefully bring home an Iroc. So here's hoping everything goes well on that end. I'll have my niece or maybe one of her friends model with it for some pics if I bring it home. I'm too fat and ugly to model, unless I move to a world full of orcs and goblins. TL/DR: I'm back, but still mourning. Besides you guys need a psycho bitch here to keep you all in line.
  23. I was going to mention that one! Poli - Latin for many Ticks - blood sucking parasites Politics There was never a better word created to describe those that work in government.
