Ok, I'm sittin here, bored as hell, and I got an idea. Ill start a lame game here, that no one will probably play along with, but im posting it anyway, just incase someone out there reads this and is as bored as me.

Ok, heres my game, I'm gonna post some song lyrics, like, one line, and then you gotta tell me the name and band that sings that song, and the song name. Then post your own lyrics. Rinse and repeat as required.

Ok, and if anyone notices that you screwed up somewhere, then, bam, your post doesnt count...you lose a point....Your lyrics need to be long enough to you know, actually stand a chance in hell in getting guessed...

If anyone of you make it past mine...but whatever...

The concrete jungle warfare has got everybody in a rage
I sure like rocking danger, and I crave my rock 'n roll
But when I get my limit, I I know where to go

load up the dogs and the family
'cause I got to feel alive
with a wild laugh where I can breathe"

I know it's not a Bob Marley song, because I'm sure cruising with his four wheel drive just isn't his thing...

Damn it, I've heard "concrete jungle" before... is this just a regularly used term?

iisaac
04-08-2002, 09:56 AM
"Concrete jungle" was first used in the nineteenth century, and it's a common phrase to describe the ruthlessness and hardship of city life. It has become a cliche, like "tip of the iceberg" and "(as plenty as there are) fish in the sea".
I posted the lyrics because they're obscure. Only rednecks and guitar enthusiasts are likely to have heard the song, as the composer is a redneck guitar hero. His highest form of spirituality is hunting wild game. His second highest is playing guitar. Most of his songs are instrumental, except the ones where he tries to pitch to the listeners the hunting and rifle-weilding way of life.
He is non other than Ted Nugent. The song is "I Just Want to Go Hunting" (because it makes me feel so good). I already mentioned that his songs would be better left without lyrics.

Andrei
04-08-2002, 10:09 PM
I figured that in order to keep the game fun, the lyrics would need to be mainstream. Alright. If we're trying to out-indie each other then so be it.

"You know what's gonna happen.
He's gonna go down and he's gonna come back again.
Sad I'm gonna die.
Hope it's gonna happen later than I think.

To set me off on someone's lawn."

As for the rap. Andrew, bring it. I will know it.

Yeah, I've heard a couple BS2000 tunes. That was not one of them.

As for the last one, it was Bad Religion - Struck a Nerve.

This one shouldn't be too difficult:

"And I'm not unsympathetic,
I see why you left,
There's no one to know,
There's nothing to do,
The city's been dead,

On a side note, I've just seen Chasing Amy. And now all of a sudden, I don't hate Keven Smith anymore.

iisaac
04-13-2002, 07:20 AM
I saw Chasing Amy. I saw most of Kevin Smith's films. The plots aren't bad. These aren't the generic Hollywood scripts. These are more like generic out-of-the-ordinary scripts, of situations that happen quite a lot if you live a bit. I had trouble sitting through each of Smith's movies the first time I saw them, and I'm not willing to see them again. It's "one of those days" on film, similar to how indie rock is "one of those days" on guitar, drum and bass. His films leave me feeling I've been there and done that, under slightly different circumstances. That's probably what his fans think when they call his movies "insightful". Well, a lot of people think the Bible, astrology readings, soap operas, and children's books are insightful, so insight is probably very easy to come by for some. Two things I can't take away from Kevin Smith is that he is fluent and eloquent. He puts his point with precision and poise.

There is no way you are going to fit into this forum with that "everyone cares about me" attitude, YT. If you pay attention you will find that most of the Sam and Max fans here are cynical bastards besides the fact that they have been on the scene so many years before you. Not to boast, just to tell it like it is.

I also have a feeling you didn't like Chasing Amy because it dealt with issues you don't understand.

I never expressed amazement at why people fail to post here. It is because the regulars are a bunch of nasty sons of dogs. Not really, schmucks, read on. The situation calls for order. I didn't see this earlier, certainly not when I was in possession of STISH, but getting rid of the Miscellaneous forum would do the Sam & Max boards a lot of good. Its free-for-all atmosphere dampens inhibitions, and this behavior seeps into the other forums.

Getting rid of the Miscellaneous forum confronts us with putting all its posts somewhere else. I suggest dumping them on Mojo (http://www.lucasforums.com/forumdisplay.php?s=&forumid=185). Give the Mojo forum a new gist and solve SnM.net's toxic cognitive waste problems at the same time. It will work. I am not trying to create chaos and confusion. I am not undermining the forums' stability. All I am saying, is give the transfer a chance. (If you find this notion appealing, you must be a right-wing fundamentalist)

If you think closing access will be the first step to ridding the world of conventional scum, then maybe you should consider that no matter where you go there is always someone who is barely hanging on the threads of intelligence.

And you guys were gettin on to me for messing with the subject of this thread...


Notes:
I am not autistic.
I was being sarcastic about the "rule the forum" quote, sarcasm doesn't show too well in text i guesse.
I don't like Chasing Amy, not because I don't understand it, but because I didn't think it was funny, I like funny movies and Kevin Smith is funny so I was disapointed.
I eat Spam, yes it is true.

and if you kill the misc. forum, people will just post thier gratuitous comments in places that are suppose to be about something insted of a place where they fit, like now for instance, where would one post a note about killing misc. forums and tell people how stupid people can be if there was no misc. forum. If you posted it in an important forum you would get a bunch of reply that ridicule you and call you autistic, but hey that is just me, besides i like the misc. forum, it is just so, misc.

I think Shmargin was right when he said there's no reason to post anywhere else because there's no other news. You got everyone all riled up isaac when you had some news from Infinite Machine, but now it's just dead again. You don't have to read the off-topic forum, but closing it won't do any good. It won't push people into the on-topic forums, it will just make them leave and the forums will be 100% dead. At least as it is now, when or if something new comes out there will be people around to talk about it and have fun (or whatever it is we do).

04-24-2002, 04:20 PM
It seems to me that some of you have trouble reading between the lines. And when I say some of you, I mean all of you.

toxic cognitive waste problems - does using this convoluted expression (two intertwined expressions) not make you think twice about the gist of the rest of the post?

It will work. I am not trying to create chaos and confusion. I am not undermining the forums' stability. - doesn't it seem odd that I became ultra apologetic about my scheme without incident?

(If you find this notion appealing, you must be a right-wing fundamentalist) - I had the notion that this is self explanatory.

I was wondering if you've ever had a sort of heart-to-heart talk with another, Isaac, because it seems to me that your ego would cause them to deem themselves pathetic and give up.

Besides, I'm pretty sure Jester was siding with you.

The common phrase "no one understands me" springs to mind here.

iisaac
04-25-2002, 10:09 AM
Yes, Jester is siding with me and against you, for the third time. That doesn't deem him unfit to like hearing cornershop wisdom. Which you persevere pursuing, might I add.

Thank you for your attention to my mental health. But I don't take advice from the unskilled, untrained, and uninformed. Your inquiry might have been as sincere as my gratitude, but I will take it seriously--although it won't quiet you, it will encourage you to discuss it later. So for short, yes, I have frequent intimate conversations with people near and dear to me, and sometimes with people not as near and dear. I'm an intimate person. And now that I have put my personality on trial, everyone will feel much more comfortable to give "advice", "insight", "words of wisdom", "guidance", "assessments", and "analysis" of my self, similar to what you have done, SyntheticGerbil. People don't realize that whatever problem they might observe through written text is in their imagination. And, your honor, to my defense, and to my credit, people who I like, like me, and people I don't like, who are very little in number it seems, don't like me. That, in my opinion, is a very good state of affairs, in my opinion! And I realize my opinion counts for very little in this court, because I am on trial.

hey Iisaac, remember that time you said you should never abandon one of your men? well in Afghanistan they tried to save one guy, and when they wen't to save him, their helicorpter was ambushed. After 12 hours of fighting the guy who was being saved was killed, and of the ones that went to save him, 7 were killed and 11 wounded.
thats why you leave them behind.

iisaac
04-27-2002, 08:30 AM
Quackass, first of all:
Get your facts (http://www.cnn.com/2002/US/03/06/ret.servicemen.bodies/) straight (http://www.cnn.com/2002/US/04/26/ret.anaconda.report/index.html).
Now, you're saying they should have left the guy to abuse and torture by his captors. You're saying that because the U.S. military is incompetent and can't overcome a group of guerrilla fighters with a chopper and ground crew, no one should attempt to rescue their fellow soldiers. If we follow that reason, than no one should attempt to fire a gun, because the U.S. army is so incompetent that it kills friendlies. Come on, they brought in a total of four helicopters with highly skilled men, and they couldn't take out a small ground force. That's tragic.

See, it's no reason to stop because someone else fails. Even if the U.S. lost their entire military trying to rescue that one man, it would be one example of gargantuous incompetence. It would be a failure in execution, not a failure in policy. A corresponding example would be an instance where the justice system lets a guilty man go free. That mistake is inherited in the system, but that does not mean that using the system is a mistake. Back to your case, mistakes were made when trying to rescue that man, but that does not mean that trying to rescue a captured or injured man is wrong. Iíll remind you that originally this discussion was about whether leaving injured men in the field is military policy, and whether it is smart. So, because of the reasons above, you do not convince me.

04-28-2002, 01:25 AM
well I got my facts from the newspaper, but as it said in the second article you posted, most news reports weren't on the money anyways, so you can't blame me. Besided, CNN isn't known to always speak the truth and noting but, so how do you know their news articles were the truth?
I never said anything about incompetance, it would have happened to anyone who went there (especially since they wen't to the exact same place as the incident to drop men off.)
Could you please explain the link between not rescuing someone and that people shouldn't attempt to fire a gun?
I wasn't arguing how the policy failed, I was stating thats why the policy in question isn't a good one to have.
I remember our first discussion on the issue, but it wasn't strictly limited to the topic of leaving injured men in the field, it was a little broader.

anyways, I think the policy isn't a good one if its just one man, however if it were say 3 or 4 men, then they should be rescued. When rescuing them, its also better to carry out your operation at either dawn or dusk when people are least prepared, also don't reuturn to where the person was lost because you're very likely to be ambushed.
As for injured men, leave them with their (uninjured) buddy and carry on, the reason you leave injured men behind is because in war the idea is to mane someone, not kill them. The reason you want to mane the person is because the person becomes more of a burden than if they were dead. This is why balls (known informally as "bullets") are copper plated, if they were left as unplated lead they would do more damage and kill more people.
