Just because two sitcoms are set in the same city is not good enough reason to claim a rip-off - especially when the supposed rip-off came three years before. By the same reasoning you could say Seinfeld is a rip-off of NYPD Blue (both set in New York City and again NYPD Blue came after Seinfeld).

Again you're making a fool of yourself by jumping to grossly uninformed conclusions.

Even if he only saw cmall clips of both sitcoms, I don't know how someone can end up with that conclusion.

Thanks for the link Phreak.

And as for what came first, it was Sinfledge, or Sienfeld. I even remember on one must not see TV night thing, they had a New York black out night on Thursday night crossover where all of there sitcoms that night had power outages. Sinefeld had a power outage in their building, Friends (in one of their first seasons I believe) had a power outage, Mad About You and whatever other show they had at the time. It was a gimmick. I guess it worked 'cause I watched it and I still remember it. I hate that.

Oh, and Luke'sdad, I like your old avatar better. However, blond is nice.

Luke: Gwuh? That is totally a Japanese video game character...isn't it?

Reason I say so is because it doesn't look like a photograph at that size, and with the white hair and the 'bishi' androgyny...I was thinking a Final Fantasy char

I know it's Amazing but this place is getting Lively.

I could easily Imagine lukes froends biting his head of for using that picture.

She kind of looks like one of those Bumbling boobs you'd expect to see on a Power Rangers show.

Man too many answers to post.

Redwing-Well, she is. It's a costume she wore at an anime convention.

Vostok-The probability of her ever seeing it is very low. Besides, the picture is so small and it's a picture she posted on the internet before so...
I think she'll think it's very sweet that in my opinion, she's really cute

Viceroy-She can bite my head off if she wants.

Nairb-Yup color is white. Great to great is always good


EDIT: But then what, if I kept my Famke Janssen avatar would she come to kick my ass? Or do what she does in Goldeneye? Wait that's a pretty nice thing...

Well this thread is certainly the Official Off-Topic Thread.

Was this a Halloween costume? I just experienced my first proper Halloween here in Canada, and I certainly enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

I don't care who she's dressed up as. It is a very creative costume. I like it when people use there, um, imagination.

And this is a great thread. Yes. Maybe I should put some effort into my avatar. Any suggestions?

I like your new Avatar I hate his opponent because He's an Arrogant old fart that should have been killed when the Soviet Union Collapse {Trajic Event} and by the person I mean by should have been killed is George Bush.

Maybe everyone should change their Avatar's?

Hmm, maybe it is time to retire my avatar.

On the topic of American politics - and why not since this is the off-topic thread and it is election day - I am hoping much like 90% of the rest of the world that Bush does not get re-elected. I feel pretty strongly about it since whoever does get into office will be indirectly running my country. It really would be nice if Australia as the 51st state could get a vote.

Indeed. There was a poll in a local newspaper a few weeks ago. Shows how much the world likes Bush. Only Israel and Russia like him.

The countries where a majority doesn't like Bush:

Canada
Australia
UK
France
Germany
Spain

etc.

I have no problem giving my opinions, or so I'm told. And I agree, I don't want to get into a debate either. I will simply state some views, listen to anybody else's views and we can leave them as each others views, even if you all are wrong. Just kidding with ya.

I don't agree with all of Bush's ideas, but most of them. I agree with few of Kerry's ideas. Simple math imo.

Throughout Kerry's campaign he has stated that he would not had gone into Iraq without a strong world coalition, nor without a sanction of the UN, but he would go if those conditions were met. In the early 90's when voting to go to war for the first Gulf War, all of those conditions were met, he voted no. During the vote for this Gulf War, his conditions were not near as strong and he voted yes but claims he voted no even though he voted yes.

He served in the Vietnam War, saw combat for only 3 months, earned 3 Purple Hearts (for wounds in combat) and several other distinguished medals. Upon his return he wrote books, campaigned and testified in court that our troops were murders genocidal against the Vietnamese people and renounced his medals. His testimonies were used by the Viet Cong to influence our POW's in interrogations.

In a nutshell, to keep it short, if you look at his voting record of his 20 some years in the senate and compare it to his campaign promises, they are in direct contradiction. That is why I am voting for Bush, not Kerry.

I agree Viceroy, no Politician is Waffle Free. I suppose it is a choice of a lesser of two waffles now isn't it?

Anyway, back to what's important, I will get to a game one of these days once I download the needed patch and get a Sunday free of all of the stuff I have to do, no promises though (my own version of the waffle).

Well personally I wouldn't count Kerry being opposed to war in the past as a negative, but that's just me.

His voting no for the previous Gulf War doesn't seem too relevant to me. He said if the conditions had have been met for this war he would have gone it, not if those conditions were met for every single war ever. So that doesn't seem contradictory to me.

Again, the Vietnam War was a different time and a different war. Again I wouldn't count his honesty to speak out against American attrocities as a negative. Perhaps the world needs an American present who isn't convinced his countrymen are benevolent?

So those are my views, but since there has been complaints let as move away from the politics now.

I should be at the forum game this weekend... are we still going to attempt a Saturday meeting or just do Sundays now?

Indeed though If everyone attends the Forum Game we may have a full Blown * Player Epic complete with Giant Map.

It'll be interesting and some people did say they could play in November.

It'll be interesting to see how the Tweaks to my playing style will work under such a situation.

Well I don't use go off at typos like constucted. Just intentional mis-spellings like Wookiee and Emporer.

One final word on American politics since at this point it is pretty close to over. Bush hasn't technically won yet but he probably will. While Kerry may appear a bit wishy-washy, at least he hasn't proven himself incompitent by four years of poor international decisions and domestic neglect.

Au contraire, the politicians do. Because if they don't the US will exert it's economic power and force them to change their minds.

It's the same in Australia. The politicians love Bush but the people don't like him much at all.

This is especially the case in Europe. Polls have shown that in just about every European country the population is about 80% opposed to Bush. Spain is a prime example, I think disapproval was up to about 90% at one stage, but Spain's politicians still sided with Bush to become part of the "Coalition of the Willing" despite what the Spanish people wanted. Hence why in Spain's recent election the challenging candidate offered to remove Spanish troops from Iraq if elected, and he won by a landslide.

Ain't democracy grand?

The European Union can stand up to the Americans and so does China.


Especially China. They've gotten a lot of criticism from the US telling them to stop selling products so cheap they're killing US economy. Obviously, China cares so much about such threats
They'll outproduce and outgrow the US soon enough.

Back on topic, it is quite true Canada cannot function without the USA, its primary trade partner so we have not a lot of choices though I'd rather kiss the ass of someone who deserves it rather then a total retard.

Our last prime minister refused to participate in the war and received lots of ire and problems from americans, especially big corporations who wanted to completely stop all trading between he two countries because "we are not good friends".
Hell, I got friends in the military and I don't want any of them to take a bullet for GWBush.

Certainly as long as Germany and France, the strongest countries in the Union, follow the will of their people rather than the will of America, Europe will continue to keep the US in line. Fortunately China (as you mentioned) and Japan are also not being intimidated.

In fact it's scary how much the world is moving towards that depicted in George Orwell's 1984. I recommend it as a good read to everyone. In it the world has become divided into three major powers: Oceania (the Americas + UK + Australia), Eurasia (Europe and Russia) and EastAsia (China + Japan). Quite scary.
