That's one of the problem at MTF especially in GM that posters aren't respectful of other posters

You are right, but that seems to be the one thing CD can't do Actually he should probably just stay out of GM altogether, but he won't do that either

I only go to GM when there's nothing happening in the Chat threads, and when Rogi wins a big tournament.

That bit in bold is what causes 99% of arguments in GM and pretty much anywhere else in life. The mind is naturally selfish, and some of us find it tougher than others to fight this innate selfishness and express our respect for others' different opinions, however 'wrong' we think they are.

Don't get why GM gets all these negative reviews. It's a great cure for boredom and it's the only place on the internet where you don't have to feel insecure about what you say. Sometimes I don't even bother thinking before I type.

I used to be your everyday average Joe. Then one day some guy told me I can do whatever I set my heart on. So I tried to fly, and failed. He then told me that there are limitations in life and that I should be more modest in my aspirations. So I robbed a convenience store and got arrested. He then told me not to take everything people say literally, and to use my own initiative. So I became a Trump supporter, and am politely asking you to leave my country.

Re: The Lurkers Melting Pot - Sponsored by World's #1 GOAT!

Oh Sham I know you are being funny when you say "Sometimes I don't even bother thinking before I type" because you always think. But actually I really believe there are a lot of posters that go into GM and literally don't even think before they type! I have noticed posts from posters in GM that really shocked me because those posters don't post that way in other sections of the Forums. It is like GM has a sign out--Enter Here and Just Go Crazy!

Re: The Lurkers Melting Pot - Sponsored by World's #1 GOAT!

quiet here again.

what a day. My youngest cousin got married. My other cousin's wedding was on an island (Bermuda) and this was on an island, too -- Toronto's island. It was a lovely day, sunny and warm but not as warm as it was during the heat wave. Actually it got quite pleasant in the evening. I am pooped and my feet are killing me.

A lot of my classmates are getting married too, which is really scary.

trip promise me you won't feel pressured into getting married because a lot of other people are getting married. I honestly know people this has happened to and it has not worked out well at all And what made it worse is at the time they didn't realize that they just wanted to get married because it seemed that everyone else was!

Re: The Lurkers Melting Pot - Sponsored by World's #1 GOAT!

Any of you watched The Dark Knight Rises ? I watched it yesterday in spite of the tragedy on Friday (which made me think twice about watching the movie ). I thought it was good (not excellent) - the Bane character was truly terrifying, and the fight scenes were quite amazing. The only thing I recognized from Pittsburgh was the football field and Mellon Institute in which they shot some fight scenes.

Re: The Lurkers Melting Pot - Sponsored by World's #1 GOAT!

Haven't watched it yet, getting some rave reviews and overshadowing spidey by miles.

Think they use special effects or something when they film in areas you know of. I remember barely recognising the areas they filmed some scenes of the latest pirates of the caribbean (in Greenwich) despite knowing the area inside-out and actually being there during filming. They make the area look totally different in the actual film.

I promise I won't get married for the sake of it. The very idea of marriage scares me senseless anyway, so that's unlikely to happen. I know people who got married for the sake of it too and they aren't very happy as well. I'd much rather be happy by myself than married and miserable!

I just watched it. I thought it was the weakest of the three but I still really enjoyed it and rated it 10/10 on imdb.com. Why did the tragedy make you think twice about watching it?

TDKR > Spidey by like, ten million miles, and I really liked Spidey. It's just not on the same level as TDKR or any of Christopher Nolan's Batman films.

Dunno why, I guess I am sick and tired of all the shooting incidents in the states. Every incident like this follows the same pattern in the aftermath - gun owners swoop down on internet forums and the media in general, to defend their 2nd amendment rights to own guns (lots of "rational" people suggest that the incident could have been avoided if everyone in the theater carried a gun for self defense - WTF ?!!)

This one was a truly bizarre incident, since the guy was apparently a pretty bright student studying neuroscience ( ironically researching reality and fantasy ), and the fact that he dressed up as the Bane character wearing a gas mask made me a bit queasy in watching the movie so soon after the incident.

Seriously? America's gun laws are just ludicrous. In Singapore the punishment for unlawful possession of firearms is death - not that I agree with it, but it just shows the stark disparity between America's attitude towards guns and that of - sorry to say this - more sensible countries. Isn't the 2nd Amendment borne out of the Civil War? Isn't that a VERY VERY VERY long time ago? Much as I admire America's deep respect for its Constitution, which is something I wish Singapore had, sometimes you just gotta admit that some things, no matter how sacrosanct, need to change with the times.

Wow, I didn't know he dressed up as the Bane character; I only heard about how he told the police he was the Joker or something. Yeah I know what you mean; when I was watching I found myself thinking about the shooting also, and how weird it was that I was watching on screen what had happened in real life. Maybe his research drove him crazy. Actually, it's quite a wonder how the super intelligent haven't all gone crazy; knowing too much about the world isn't a good thing sometimes.
