Wow - I was just watching an old episode of Ren & Stimpy, one that I remember from when I was a kid. My God, I can't believe that was ever on Nickelodeon. Really, it boggles my mind that they got away with having that on children's television.

If you were to create a barier of electrons, wouldn't they repel the positrons of the antimatter, forming a "force field" of sorts?
Nope. Positron is just a different name for anti-electron. They annihilate. Although...maybe a force field based on that? Not repulsions though. If anything they attract. Opposite charges, remember?

I've heard of Ren and Stimpy, but never seen it. Was it any good?

Oh please - you clearly have never seen Ren & Stimpy - pure, unadulterated cartoon subversion at its finest. Screw Spongebob - hinting at Spongebob being gay doesn't even come close to some of the things they got away with on Ren & Stimpy

Amaster, yes, yes, a thousand times yes, Ren & Stimpy was truly one of the most incredible cartoons to come from the 90s.

Duh. I can't think today. What I meant to say was a barrier of protons to repel the positrons. Wouldn't that work? They should repel each other since they have the same charge.

Theoretically possible, if you had a way to strip the electrons off a bunch of Hydrogen, you're left with pure protons. I'm not sure how stable it would be though.

You having the EXACT same username as the name of the Second Territory can't just be a random coincidence!

Well, am I right?


Also... Russ...I had a dream last night that would make you green. I dream I was in a fusion of both Earthbound and Pendragon. I was running around my local area running from pursuers, and yet, I had PK fire, ice, and Thunder. It was awesome. I never hit anything with them though. I was just in a perking lot and decided to do a bit of practice. I pretty much used them like Lucas does in Brawl. (probably not too much of a co-incidence, since I just started using him)

Eh, I think it's different. H+ may be a single proton, but it's bonded to something else, and still holds the electron...kinda. I'm not sure what a pure soup of protons without any electrons at all would behave as.

I mean, falling back to a chemistry example, in a Redox-in-acid reaction we say that we balance by adding H+, but we're not really putting pure protons in there.

Last night I had a weird dream where I was at my old elementary school, only people from highschool were there. And I was using the Infernal Wrath spell from Fable to kill everyone. Then some girl jumped on my back and it prevented me from casting the spell, which led to an awkward conversation between me and someone I was trying to kill. I said something along the lines of, "Isn't it funny, I'm trying to kill all you guys?". Then I woke up. Then I ate a million Oreos.

I used to be very intolerant of chocolate. Now I can handle it in small quantities, and, given the right stuff (like Hershey's Symphony bars), I even seek it out occasionally.

I like Oreos, but I prefer Newman-O's by Newman's Own Organics (http://www.newmansownorganics.com/).

Newman-Os are superior, but like I said I only buy Oreos because I can get them around where I live. When I go out to the supermarket where they have Newman-Os, there's better things for me to choose from.

The proton comes because your reaction is occurring in water, which, no surprise, has H3O+. That is the source of the proton.

Hey russ. I'd LOVE to add you on brawl, but I have very little time to play (considering I've been getting a lot of those "think of your future, you can do so much better than game tester" speeches"). Also, my PC is still not fully up to par because the reapir guy hasn't come back to finish the job. I'm litteraly sitting on a Pc that can only use the internet, open Office, and RMXP (trial version, it'll blow up in about 30 days).

I could try to get his new wireless router up and running and then connect it to my Wii, but...

Once I can brawl online, I will PM you. I just hope it doens't end up like with Shadow tiger, in which I was highly anticipating a good brawl, only to find out that I pack it up at 9:00, while he boots up at 11:00... >_>

Ah. That would be me. :p But only if I'm Fox, and only if there's no lag. (That's a great double-edged sword right there.)

I probably won't be free to Brawl until a while. I have tons of work to do for a single class. Though I'm sure I could get on for an hour or two. But if there's lag, I cut it. I get plenty of lag-free Brawl at College, and it's spoiled me rotten.

Plus, Melee is forever. <3

Russ
11-07-2008, 12:48 PM
I have to say, Melee has a lot of fun stuff, but I like the feel of Brawl better. Melee you fall a lot quicker, and it just feels different when you play it. Plus they made Ness a lot weaker in Melee. :(

And I agree about lags, I can't stand them.

ShadowTiger
11-07-2008, 02:18 PM
I go to College with a surprising amount of Melee professionals, (Y'know, the kinds of people who practically live at MLG, and there is no question that they can hold their own.) and about three fourths of them prefer Melee. They can excel at Brawl, but their heart still holds Melee to be the love of their lives. I'm still kinda in that same boat, really.


I mean, hell, .. there's a lot you can't do in Brawl. Number one on the list? L-Canceling. I'm serious. I wavedash as necessary, (Overexcessively as Samus and Marth.) but L-Canceling is what can make or break the match well before your usage of wavedashing. The dodge style, I'm okay with. Whereas to avoid a post-juggling return rape, I'd air dodge in brawl and bypass the attack, .. in Melee, I'd just counter with my own attack, often to the side after a fakeout. And then you know what? You L-Cancel when you land, and you'd be fine.

Another thing I dislike about Brawl: Samus, Link(s), Ivysaur, Shiek, and Olimar all have a chain grab onto ledge ability. The problem is, it only grabs the ledge; not the wall itself underneath the ledge. In Melee, you could dodge toward the platform first and then follow up with the hookshot / beam or whatever. Not in Brawl. In Melee, if you press down to release the platform and immediately follow up with a sex kick, you'd be golden. In Brawl, there's a delay between pressing down and actually releasing. It messes things up very badly.

Anthus
11-07-2008, 02:36 PM
Brawl has some serious technical issues. The game runs much slower than melee, and often times feels delayed as far as actions go. Melee had very low rates of AI retardation, but it seems that the AI tards out a lot in brawl. Espeicaly any AI character with a transformational final smash (Fox and crew, Ganondorf, Bowser). They always seem to get stuck :/

And Russ, I think Ness was stronger in Melee. His PK Flash was much bigger, and his bat packed a nasty punch. I think he is slower in Brawl. And, for some reason, they moved his hat to the other side.

In general, I think Melee was faster paced, and a lot harder against someone who really knows what they're doing. Brawl is awesome, don't get me wrong, but it feels like they kind of missed the mark in the transition to some epic "story driven" fighter.

It's kind of funny that this came up, since last night, me and a buddy booted up Melee for the first time in a while. That was when we noticed the changes :o

Russ
11-07-2008, 02:51 PM
ST, you forgot, Lucas also has a chain grab onto ledge ability. Go rope snake! :D

Anyways, Melee was always my least favorite Smash Bros game. I know it sounds weird, but Melee just plays differently than SSB and Brawl do, and I can never get used to it.

And on a side note, Melee's adventure mode sucks compared to Brawl's. ;)

As for Ness, his PK Flash attack is stronger, and his bat is slightly stronger, but his bat is slower, and many of of his moves (PK Thunder and PK thunder knockback especially) are nothing compared to what they were in SSB or what they are in Brawl.

Anyway, moral decrepitism aside, I'm also looking forward to making some custom pizza this weekend. Braided String Cheese is a remarkable ingredient to use. I chose the word "remarkable" for this purpose due to how common other types of cheeses are in use on pizza. I'll try for a touch of originality in mine. Green olives couldn't hurt either. They really bring out the flavor.

Oh, man, best random pizza related story, seeing as we're talking about pizza.

I'm at my friends house for the night, right. We're online, go to the Pizza Hut website to order. It's got all the forms; topping,s style, etc.

As a result, I've had to really step up my game to avoid an embarrasing 4/4 stock to 0/4 stock scenario. I've gotten pretty good at Brawl. And if you tick me off... :evil: I go to my tension relief character. Old Pika is very good for that.... :P

Oh, and I've got my younger brother playing now too! ...unforunately, he is NOT a gamer by any standard. I think I will have to always be teamed with him, instead of against him.

Dark Elf, Final Fantasy 4. Then, after finally beating him, I suddenly lost all motivation to even play the game. I dunno why. Final Fantasy feels too simplistic compared to Mother 3, after playing it.

Speaking of Mother 3, it does seem to have some annoyingly difficult boss every five steps. Oh well.

Pikachu? Hard to control? Nonsense. Pikachu has been my favorite character since the SSB days (although not necessarily my best character). Once you understand how to use his B-up move, then you can take a ton of damage without dying. I regulary push 150 with him, in some large levels I can get up to 300.

Moving quickly and randomly is great, and his B, you just have to get used to it. Try doing target practice with Pikachu and you'll get it. And yes, his final smash is very difficult. I've only played Brawl a few times, but I'm getting better with it.

I always loved it when people thought that Roy was the best character in the game and Marth had no chance, but then I annihilate them without even barely taking a scratch. I admit it's all in the person playing, but they were pretty good.

I honestly think Roy is better. He's just harder to master. A video game club I attended in high school consisted of many good players, including a Roy player and a Marth player. The Roy player would always win, hands down.

Not that I'm saying Marth is bad. I certainly think he is a close second, and much easier to master at that.

I hate that Nintendo made that change. I ended up discarding Marth for Snake and Sonic because of that.

Switched out for Snake? Are You crazy?

Last semester at my college, my gaming (Anime/Sci-Fi actually. :( ) club had a "Game Night." We featured a Brawl Tournament there. Professionals from the region were invited, and a surprising amount of them showed up. They put our own MGL pro CARab00 to the grinding stone, that's for sure. The final round was me vs a snake player. (My sparring partner, actually.) I chose link due to his ranged and melee potential, but his snake utilized every trick in the book, (Especially that nasty rolling attack into up+a combo glitch.) and we both had one life left, and I was just a bit too far under the platform to spin attack back up. That, and he got me with his Bair.

Bastard. :p

Never underestimate Snake Players. Or Dedede players, apparently. I'm still in shock that Zelgadis switched from Fox (In Melee.) to Dedede.

Unlike past SSB games, I don't see any one character that's considered "better" than all the others. Granted, Snake has some strange moves I had to get used to (especially his smashes), but I guess he just suits my playing style. Marth's loss of range really ticked me off enough that I started trying out other characters (no, I did not jump all over Snake immediately; I was skeptical of him at first).

Okay, so technically I still play as Marth, just not as much as I used to.

Agreed. Even I hate DeDeDe, but that doesn't mean no one is good with him. In fact, my cousin plays as DeDeDe regularly.

On a side note, has anyone ever had Powerthirst (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRuNxHqwazs)? You should give it a try. It works! :D

Unlike past SSB games, I don't see any one character that's considered "better" than all the others. It's going to sound a bit weird, but my vote for this one goes to Pikachu, with the slight possibility of Pit as a followup. Whenever anyone chooses Pikachu, everyone else tries to get them out of the game first. Pikachu has so many ridiculously nasty combos that I can't even list them all. (That's a great way to introduce a thesis. :rolleyes: ) His Ground Downsmash is simply ridiculous, and people enjoy spamming it to get out of tight situations. His Aerial Forward has some crazy priority, and works well in tandem with his Aerial Neutral and Aerial Reverse. Follow it up with a quick Aerial Down, and then a Groundsmash when you land. I've seen this work so many times. I hate Pikachus. I even feel dirty playing as one.

I always do that. But it's not the same. Think of it, controlling Claus, and pressing down B to turn into the masked man, like Zelda/Shiek. It would be awesome.

I agree. In the first one, Ness definitely had an advantage, with Captain Falcon in a close second. In the second, a character either rocked or sucked. Brawl did a good job of balancing the scales.

Hyper mode was so hard to beat, especially the final boss. I remember having a near-full phazon bar at the end of the first phase and spending 3/4 of the second phase healing.

I think I obtained most of the tokens (might be missing 1 or 2 blue ones). Of course, that doesn't do me any good when I have no green tokens. :(

Toon Link is sufficiently different in Brawl that only his Up+A, Standing A, Ground Forward Tilt, and most of his B Moves are the same, sort of. (Arrows don't count. .. for some reason.) His Bair move is exceptional as a "wall of pain" maneuver. Do it up sirs. Do it up. Adult Link's Bair is best suited for groundwork.

My favorite might be marth as a character, but my favorite character to actually play as is Mario by far. He's simple, fast, powerful, a small target, and very unknown to most players as they generally look him over. You can't get better than Mario, unless you like to be second player.

*spoiler warning*

Hah. I found myself with a 1/3-full Phazon bar at the end of Dark Samus, a 1/4-full bar at the end of AU battle 1, and 3/4-full bar at the end of AU battle 2 (the end). However... haha... well... I find that I need to stun and damage the AU 5 times during the first battle, and when I stunned it the 5th time, I had an almost completely empty Phazon bar. However... I wasn't able to get to it quickly enough to pull the hatch/armor open to kill it and move on to the final phase of the battle, so I had to endure it a 6th time. I took some damage this time... I actually got hit by it's deadly purple beam.

But I beat it. Good times, good times.

The car would break down at the most inopportune time, or there was that time when our entire plumbing system spectacularly failed - my entire childhood could be summarized in a series of unfortunate events. The best and worst thing about bad luck, I think, is that it's rarely something that could've been anticipated or prevented. Best because it means it's not your fault. Worst because if it's not your fault, you can't control it.

Anthus
11-13-2008, 02:38 PM
You're probably talking to Russ, but mine is about four feet up. We have a basement though.

Anywho, last night, I had a really weird nightmare.

I don't remember much of the beginning, but that part was boring anyway. I do remember I was hanging out with two of my friends and we were driving around. We went somewhere to get something to eat, I think, and we were all supposed to chip in exactly $1.50 or something. I remembered I left my wallet at his house, so I was didn't have any cash. The next section isn't very clear, but I then remember showing up at my work. (Let me explain my job, so this next part makes sense: I work for a veterinarian who works out of his house, and goes to do house calls. Last year for our Wednesday internships, my girlfriend and I would go and do House calls with him. Now, I go there frequently and help him with stuff at the house.)

Anyway, I showed up at work, and his house; as most things are in dreams, was entirely different, and massive compared to his real house. It was also in a different location. It was in some suburban division on top of a hill surrounded by woods. There was a winding road that went off, but there were no other houses. This place seemed to be permanently in a state of twilight. Kind of like Twilight Town o.o. So, I get started, and the dream shifts again to me and my friend playing some 360 game. I remember the controllers being huge, and I kept thinking "Gabi couldn't play this, her hands are too small." The controller also kept shifting button formations. At one point, it had six face buttons, and one of them was "D" and the other one was "Dash" in addition to the A, B, X, and Y. The game was a survival type game, and for some reason, it took place in "dungified" version of this house.

I abruptly stopped playing, and went down into this room to clean out cat boxes. The transition was as rough as it seems. This room could best be described as a square room, with to smaller squares on the north and south ends. The center of the room was cut off from the two ends by a chain link fence. This could be climbed over, however. There was a plank that formed a bridge from end to end. It was covered in cat hair, and had a sign attached to it. I don't remember exactly as it is hard to remember exact words in dreams, and they are usually distorted, and perceived more as an idea than literal text, but anyway, it was talking about a disaster in the room, and it was apologizing for any inconvenience it may cause. I remember clearing the layer of cat fur off of the bridge, and the plank fell. This revealed that is was on top of a stretch of fence. I realized that there were no cats, or cat boxes for that matter. This room was empty. I wanted to leave, but there was no way out as both doors where on the other sides of either fence. I climbed over the south fence, and went through the door. This part of the dream took a very long time.

I was now outside on a patio in the eerie twilit suburbia I described before. One thing I remember was even though there was a vivid sunset, the rest of the sky was blue as day. I walked around the outside of the house, and went past a few rooms. Some of them had glass walls, and I could see inside. I saw a few rooms with TVs, laptops, and cats (One of these rooms could have been where we played Xbox).

The dream radically changes now. I'm at my school, and there is some new schedule. I got there late, and didn't know where I was supposed to go. I saw a friend, and asked her if I could borrow her Tales of Symphonia again since she didn't really move. As she was responding with some dream garbled tl;dr, I noticed a barefoot girl with a whitish dress came up to me. It was Gabi (my girlfriend). She said if I didn't know where to go, just come to the art room. I did so, and there was some more talk of schedules, and stuff. The weirdest thing was, I'm not even in high school anymore.

Suddenly, me and Gabi woke up in a bed, back at the vet's house. Except, it was no longer the vets house O_O. It was some sort of orphanage for lost people. I guess we had gotten lost? We woke up, and I don't remember much of what happened next. It sort of jumps to me looking around the house, and I make a startling discovery: The room I was in before is where the cut organs out of lost people, and use them to construct new people. I heard some girl garbling some dream speak at me, and I think she was after me. She began to chase me, and suddenly she was with a group of girls (one of which was my aunt, who me and Gabi stayed with in California). I was running through several rooms, and each one had some weird shape, and some times had stairs in the room. I ended up going into a closet of one of the rooms I had seen from outside. It had stairs that lead up to the attic.

Now, this is where it get's good. The attic is very hard to describe, but I'll describe it as I saw it. You come up from the stairs, exiting from a small square in the floor, and you're in a room with a very low ceiling. Maybe four feet? You'd have to duck and crouch at any rate. The attic was some sort of game room. This low area had a pool table. Good luck playing. Also, the entire room had brick floors, ceilings, and walls. To the left of this low part was the rest of the room which was more open, and seemed more like an attic. It had a few couches, a TV, and some random game system that doesn't really exist. To the right was a wall. Straight back along the passage, and just outside in the large part was a small area, that went into a girl's room. It was obvious by the various items lying about the air mattress in there, which barely fit in the tiny area. Anyway, I go along the pool table, and out into the open area. I hear them coming up the stairs, so I run back into the bedroom. I try and get underneath the air mattress to hide, but they are already up here. My aunt comes in, and jumps on the air mattress. She asks why I'm hiding? I come out, and the girl explains to me that they don't want to kill me. I think she wanted me to help them kill people.

Suddenly there was someone lying on the mattress. The girl explained how they want to help them. She brandished a knife, and cut them right down the abdomen. I told her no, and shoved past them, and ran. I ran back downstairs, and through various rooms, and ended up back in the bed room with Gabi. I told be to pack up her stuff as quickly as she could since we had to leave. I remember feeling like my parents brought me here, and left. I was thinking we could escape and go to my friends house, as I thought for some reason, he was close. She was putting socks on which seemed to take for ever, then she kept asking me to change her socks, and after a few times, I told her we needed to hurry up. I remember putting on my belt, and putting various items in my pocket (phone, DS, iPod... crap that doesn't even matter).

By this time, the girl had come in. She was very displeased. For the first time, I was able to get a good look at her. She looked like a real life version of Paula from my avatar. She didn't have the knife on her, but I knew she might be hiding it. I approached her slowly, and remembered holding a brief conversation, but I don't remember what we talked about. She was standing in front of a dresser. I was no less than a foot away from her, and I grabbed her by the throat, and began to squeeze. I remember her neck being very small, and I wasn't sure if I was strangling her right. I think I asked Gabi is this was okay. There wasn't much of a response. This girl didn't put up much of a fight. She grabbed my arms, in defense, but this was useless. The girl was unable to make noise for a while, and a few minutes in, she backed up, and fell down onto the dresser, and I kept my grip firm. She started to run her foot up my leg, and started to push. I think she even got one leg up on the table, and tried top use it as leverage, and kept pushing me. She started to make noises, and it got progressively louder. I told Gabi to do something, but there was nothing to be done. There was a cell phone like item, in the "frame" of sight, and the signal bars must have been her "HP" because they went down the longer I squeezed, and her resistance grew weaker as well. I also noticed a "volume" controller on a computer on the dresser after I had strangled her.

She died after a few minutes, and her lifeless body fell to the ground from the dresser. She didn't look so scary, and psychotic after having the life choked out of her. Me and Gabi ran downstairs, and where now in my kitchen. I told her I just killed someone, and I wasn't sure what would happen. I jokingly told her it never felt better, and placed my hands around her neck. I was only kidding though. After that, I'm not sure what happens since I woke up.

Yup. Crazy.

I'm kind of upset. I was dreaming last night. It was a perfect mystery. And right as I'm about to find out who the murderer was, my alarm went off. I woke up to find that school was cancelled. So I went back to bed, and miraculously started having the same dream. It was great. Then I woke up and couldn't remember who the murderer was! :mad:

11-13-2008, 03:02 PM
Lol. Maybe. I didn't actually realize it until I thought about it. Come to think of it, maybe it wasn't, and it is just me trying to think of something to compare it to. There is actually a lot of stuff, like minor details I left out (Like, my friend who moved in Vegas was there for a brief part, but I omitted it because I couldn't remember all of it. He also spoke to me through out the dream)

She did have the bow, and the dress, but I think it was longer, like down to her knees maybe, but she didn't have shoes, since I remember it feeling soft in the dream when she pushed against me (As opposed to hard from shoes).

Either way, it really was a scary dream. Seriously. Can you imagine, for any part of your unconscious life; thinking this shit is real :P

Wow, TD, that's one crazy dream. A lot stranger than mine. Well, mine had a lot of crazy parts, but the part I remember was logical. To a certain extent. One of the clues was found in a bouncing canoe, and one of the detectives was a talking rodent, but it was still fairly logical. :)

Seriously, it's probably less embarassing just to leave it as is.

Hey Russ, I know what house headaches can be like. We just had a plumber at our house last Wednesday. He discover that 6ft of our cast iron sewage pipe had a two inch crack in it. This will necessitate the replacement of said cast iron with PVC.

The most awesome part? We have a crawlspace and we didn't know that the pipe was cracked like this till just last week. This means that we have waste water down there. It doesn't smell because of the plastic that is covering everything. It's going to be fun when the plumbers replace everything.

So I went to China Town, Seattle today. My friends brought me to this one store. It has tons of old video games and systems (like a Famicom for $20, or a SNES game for $5). What was the neatest thing there though was the DSi that was for sale. 2 of them actually. The owner showed us the Japanese DSi and let us play around with it. He also (thank goodness) tols us that somebody is supposedly working on a hack that allows it to play GBA roms. It was fun.

Yes, it was! You really should go there. It's a very small store, but it's filled with old games and systems. My friend got a Gamecube and a controller for 30 bucks there. There are Famicoms, Sega Dreamcasts, NES and SNES games, and of course, DSi! It's amazing!

I knew it would only be a matter of time before someone, somewhere made that kind of hack. It was all the easier with the addition of an Micro SD/ Trans flash slot. Ah. Thank you Nintendo. Now, give us a shop channel so we have less of a moral reason to brazenly pirate GB/A ROMs :D

Do you think you would use the newer betas for development, or stick to the old school stuff, and use only the new features as opposed to scripting? Some interesting chapter based stuff could be done with limitation on d-map items alone (i.e. you get X later in the game, but don't want player to use X in an earlier chapter...)

Nah, it's a Mandelbrot set. The top picture is the whole set - the interesting thing about it is, no matter how deeply you zoom in, there's always new detail - the bottom picture was taken after zooming in quite close. One of the recurring themes of the Mandelbrot set is that you see a lot of very small images that look like the whole thing (but they're always a little bit different). And it's all derived from a simple equation, too. I'm just proud of myself for putting it all together - also with figuring out how to make it really cool with the differing shades of blue.

Am I the only one who doesn't see Obama as either a great change for better or for worse? Everyone seems to think that he's either going to save the world or kill us all. Honestly, he just seems like a typical president to me, with policies not really that far out of line from the entire second half of the 20th century.

Besides, I've heard he's planning to extend the Bush tax cuts a little longer anyway, as a result of the current economic situation (in addition to the promised tax cuts for the middle class). So in other words, yeah, not so much with the liberal economic policies.

Correction! A chicken stuff inside a duck stuffed inside a turkey wrapped in bacon.

o.o ..Wait, seriously? How exactly would you make one? I'm guessing there is a lot of mincing involved.

Well, I had a normal Turduken (Chicken inside Duck inside Turkey). My Dad just bought it online. Funny story actually. It cost $60, but $60 to ship. The next day, we found it at the store for $50. Boy was he mad.

This looks more like it would be a turd inside a ukelele stuffed into a chicken.

Heh, it does.

Also, whenever you buy a new computer, be sure to have a monitor too. I got about halfway through installing Windows XP on my new computer that arrived today that I realized my monitor didn't work.

Well, that's what happened in the dream I had last night, anyway. What actually happened is that the monitor is on its way, but the tower arrived this afternoon. I set it up, and used the old monitor belonging now to my sister's 386 PC as a monitor. Old, old VGA Monitor. Got through the BIOS booting okay, but then when it got to the XP login screen, ... ... oh god. It's like the entire concept of mathematics vomited on the screen.

Quick question about MS Word 2003. Is there a way to replace every instance of a word with another word. An example would be if you wanted to change someone's name through out the story. Basically, you swap out the name for another. I always thought there was some sort of key board command for this.

I would imagine there's a "find and replace" option somewhere, probably in the edit menu. But I dunno, I hate MS Word.

Yeah, do "find and replace" under the "edit" menu, and, after typing in the old word you're looking for and the new word to replace the old one, there should be a button that says "Replace all" that you should click.

This is gold. The Bible told by a five year old:



Through the eyes of a child:The Children's Bible in a Nutshell


In the beginning, which occurred near the start, there was nothing but God, darkness, and some gas. The Bible says, 'The Lord thy God is one, but I think He must be a lot older than that.


Anyway, God said, 'Give me a light!' and someone did. Then God made the world.


He split the Adam and made Eve. Adam and Eve were naked,but they weren't embarrassed because mirrors hadn't beeninvented yet.


Adam and Eve disobeyed God by eating one badapple, so they were driven from the Garden of Eden.Not sure what they were driven in though, because they didn't have cars.


Adam and Eve had a son, Cain, who hated his brother as longas he was Abel.


Pretty soon all of the early people diedoff, except for Methuselah, who lived to be like a million or something.


One of the next important people was Noah, who was a good guy,but one of his kids was kind of a Ham. Noah built alarge boat and put his family and some animals on it. He askedsome other people to join him, but they said they wouldhave to take a rain check.


After Noah came Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob. Jacob was morefamous than his brother, Esau, because Esau sold Jacob hisbirthmark in exchange for some pot roast. Jacob had a sonnamed Joseph who wore a really loud sports coat.


Another important Bible guy is Moses, whose real name was Charlton Heston. Moses led the Israel Lights out of Egypt and away from the evil Pharaoh after God sent ten plagues onPharaoh's people. These plagues included frogs, mice, lice,bowels, and no cable.


God fed the Israel Lights every daywith manicotti. Then he gave them His Top Ten Commandments. These include: don't lie, cheat, smoke, dance, or covet yourneighbor's stuff.


Oh, yeah, I just thought of one more:Humor thy father and thy mother.


One of Moses' best helpers was Joshua who was the firstBible guy to use spies. Joshua fought the battle of Geritol andthe fence fell over on the town.


After Joshua came David. He got to be king by killing a giant with a slingshot. He had a son named Solomon who hadabout 300 wives and 500 porcupines. My teacher says he was wise,but that doesn't sound very wise to me.


After Solomon there were a bunch of major league prophets. One of these was Jonah, who was swallowed by a big whale and thenbarfed up on the shore. There were also some minor leagueprophets, but I guess we don't have to worry about them.


After the Old Testament came the New Testament. Jesus is thestar of The New. He was born in Bethlehem in a barn.


(I wish I had been born in a barn too, because my mom is always sayingto me, 'Close the door! Were you born in a barn?' It wouldbe nice to say, 'As a matter of fact, I was.')


During His life, Jesus had many arguments with sinners like the Pharisees and the Democrats.


Jesus also had twelve opossums.The worst one was Judas Asparagus. Judas was so evil that theynamed a terrible vegetable(so sayeth Howie!) after him.


Jesus was a great man. He healed many leopards and even preached to some Germans on the Mount.


But the Democrats and all those guys put Jesus on trial before Pontius the Pilot. Pilot didn't stick up for Jesus. He just washed his hands instead.


Anyways, Jesus died for our sins, then came back to life again.He went up to Heaven but will be back at the end of theAluminum. His return is foretold in the book of Revolution, Which says not to add to this book.

Sadly, I think that interpretation of the Bible is more accurate and detailed than your average Christian's understanding of the Bible. No offense, but at least in my experience, this is the case - I can't count the number of times I've had discussions with religious people wherein I had a greater knowledge of Biblical teachings than they did. And that's completely ignoring the lack of understanding over the history of Christianity since then - the origins of various religious holidays, the various translations of the Bible and interpretations of its teachings, etc. Or to take it a step further, their own church's teachings - you won't believe how many Catholics simply don't realize that the Catholic Church embraces the theory of evolution.

Russ

The Catholic Churches embraces evolution? I find that hard to agree. Could you elaborate?

Icey

The Catholic Church does not teach creationism, and has stated support for scientific evidence as a better guide multiple times. Catholics don't read the Bible 100% literally, rather looking at stuff like the creation story as a metaphor - unlike most protestant denominations.

Edit: and yes, to agree with rock_nog, it's enormously annoying how I know tons more about the contents of the bible, history of christianity, etc than any theist. I don't hate Christianity, I just don't believe it (and think it's pretty ludicruous...), and I could describe the religion more accurately and neutrally than many Christians.

Oh and russ stop talking about religion in so, it's really annoying. Also that story was not cute, since it obviously has puns that were designed by someone with more than the cognitive ability of a five year old. Some of that could certainly have come from a five-year-old, but as a whole it very obviously didn't. Waste of time.

You, who believe a wide array of fantastical stories, are expressing skepticism that a group of people who believe a wide array of fantastical stories would acknowledge that science gives us a more accurate view of the physical universe than ancient scrolls written by desert nomads who thought the earth was flat.

Wow, Russ, were you trying to prove my point? Unbelievable. Anyway, there's not much to elaborate on - it's exactly as I said, the Catholic church fully accepts the big bang theory and the theory of evolution. Basically, they have deemed those questions of science, not of faith, and therefore those questions are not for them to answer, but for scientists to answer.

I'm just saying that because it seems like the Catholic Church would be the list likely to go for the "Creation metaphor" idea. Then again, they have interpetted some strange things from the Bible before.

Genesis clearly states that the Earth was created before the sun, the stars, or anything else. It also says the earth is a flat surface existing under a solid dome with lights poking through called "stars".

If you don't think this is either a) a metaphor or b) totally false, you are retarded.

First of all, the sun came one day after Earth. That's possible. Second, the Bible never actually said that Earth was flat. It was a metaphore that people interpetted as saying Earh was flat.

Wait, are you saying some people actually believe the Earth is flat? Wow, that blows me away.
