What does it looking like I'm doing?
GI Joe: Hey, kid!
GI Joe: I'm a computer!
GI Joe: Stop all the downloading!
GI Joe: Help computer.
Kid: I don't know much about computers, except for the one I have in my house, and my mom put a couple of games on it and...
GI Joe: *Indistinguishible gibberish*
ah boludo no sabia, entonces dedicate a exorcizar computadoras con el virus llamado Direct X jajaj
Amen to that, I thought it was disgusting that we were covering the Pope, agreed he's done a lot of things, but these chopper guys hardly even got a mention.
It was like "THE POPE HAS DIED, and by the way so have some chopper people"
I thought it was plain disgusting, it's had so much coverage over here.
Although I did like one of the comments that the Australian reporters said, it was something like:
"And the popes condition has worsened to the point of death"
ROFL, how much worse can it get?, was a typical stypid Aussie comment.
But yes, it's very annoying.
dude..i got a paper in class today"hamilton spectator i think" everything about the pope in it :O
So make another thread about it
Ummmmmmmm, he started the thread..........
So techincally seeing as you didn't contribue anything to the thread, your techincally spamming
He's spamming the boards with another topic regarding the pope.
Thought he was sick of people talking about the pope
It's like the numerous GeForce 6600GT "OMG my TEMPS!" threads.
How many do we need?
Uh, yah, I don't think you get it Sobe. He's upset with all the media attention to it dispite more important things going on in the world.
Yeah this sh*t about the pope is everywhere and it's damn annoying, personally I think this whole pope thing is RIDICULOUS, why does the catholic church needs to have a "maximum chief" anyways.. And so many ppl going to its funeral.. looks like everyone turned catholic in the last hour
Would it have killed him to make his feelings known in an EXISTING thread regarding the Pope?
Guy A makes a thread about Vegetables
Guy B doesn't like Carrots, and says so in Guy A's thread
Guy C doesn't like Corn, and creates another thread saying so
My question is (in this example at least)...
Why couldn't Guy C just make his point known in Guy A's thread?
Mod A gets irritated by Member B
Member B keeps talking.
Mod A gets cranky and warns that if the thread go's off topic he'll close it.
Mod A says sorry to Guy C who doesn't like Corn, your threads Ok.
Nice subliminal shot at me
Hehe, I try
It's all good, what's with having the Popes body on show as well, that's kinda...errrr, not good.
Looks better now than he did alive :S
Well, he could become a zombie. I guess that's worse than death.
Anyhoo I usually ignore this type of media coverage. Not necessarily the content, just how they do it. I always expect the news to over-hype and over-report anything it wants. Just today I was watching the news and the local station was doing a bit on a kid who died in a car accident a few weeks before he graduated. Now why did they spend so much time on that particular case and ignore all the times in the past when that's happened. Why didnt they cover my friend's death? It happened in almost the same scenario.
Sometimes it just bugs me. It almost feels like the news is trying to control how people think and feel sometimes by choosing certain situations and overhypeing them. I know it sounds like a conspiracy theory, but I wouldnt be suprised if some news' big-wig ego was getting in the way of the news.
It's politics, like Israel and the Arabs and Iraq and Iran, that's why the Pope take up the TV time.
Religion can mean war if it goes wrong,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ( like it has many times, like in Europe when the 30-year-war came around )
Anything can mean war if it goes wrong. The Italians can go to war with France if they suddenly claimed that they invented pizza. But France doesnt have the balls:bash:
,,,,but religion is different,,,,,
Like they talk now,,can a none-European be a pope,,well Jesus was none-European,,,things like this.
dont forget about the 48 hours of news coverage that the pope got when he was about to die
