Women can like Indiana Jones too. And why would a guy have a female name for a nickname?

If someone needs an anwser to that, that means he doesn't know the ways of the internet.

Anyway, for the topic.

Wine. I havent drank wine for two good years, but recently I've felt an urge to make myself a treat. So I went to a croatian restaurant and ordered some random (as I'm no specialist) semi-dry wine. I sat outside, under an big umbrella as it was finally raining after weeks of heats, and the bottle and a glass arrived.

And I loved every sip of it.

Now, exucuse me, but a full bottle of semi-dry wine can take it's toll on a man, but it can provide very sweet dreams, if digested properly.

So, good night to everyone!

I believe the PS3 is, in fact, region locked. I'm not sure.

While the PS3 is not region locked unless certain games are deliberately locked (there are many sites and sources online that support this), the Blu-Ray features are to prevent people from buying movies earlier than studios want them to, hence making sure they buy in the intended region to generate more revenue.

You totally misunderstood.
I didn't read your username at any point,
because your avatar was unique enough for me to not need any.

...Err. Now you're just being weird.

...This is a contradiction. The PS3 is region-locked if any content
can recognize the region and lock out features. Razz

What you're saying is only that the PS3 does not have an
actively forced lock, but that the option is present.

But sure, I'll roll with that.

Mmm... wine... Makes me want to go out and buy a bottle Crackling. Yeah, I know, it's cheap [Roughly R15; less than 2 euro] but it's still got some quality.... ok... quality in quantity... shut up!

I just think of it as Pandora's Box

Plus I know another guy on another forum who goes by Pandora. Hey, being an object that apparently contains all the evil in the world is manly too!

That depends.
In one version Pandora was the first woman that was given by Zeus for people as a punishment. She got all that was bad from Hermes - ability to lie, decieve and flattery and she got a Box as a dowry, a box that contained all the possible evil combined with hope at the bottom of it.
Other version states that the box had all of the good contained wich, unleashed by Pandora, flew away leaving humanity only in misery.

Aka. the archetype of biblical Eve. A bad, bad woman and a source of all misery, a punishment from gods, or in a bible (depending on version) - a reckless request made by Adam.

Heh. That's why I told my parents when I was 14 to give me money, because I'm sick of trying to get a refund, wich in Polish shops equals to imposibility unless you're gonna start some fire in the middle of the shop.

And thus, I've got only cash for birthday, packed in a nice, quite often aromatised envelopes (my mother fancy wish, as she sees money as an inapropriate gift).

Lucky for me exchanging here in Holland is EASY...

Now... Relationship crisis...

My girlfriend is going to Jamaica for World Servants. Build schools and such.

She`s leaving saterday morning around 3 AM from home...

She wants me to be with her tomorrow till she leaves... Wich means: from around 14:00. But IDK if thats possible since I must buy some last presents for her. Thats part 1 of the story.

Part 2 is that im a gamer. And she doesnt like that. Yesterday evening *when every1 was allready gone...* I got upstairs to my room with my best friend to play some games... *wich werent even FPS... wich she hates even more* She didn`t like that and used that in a fight we had today... Shes angry... im close to tears...

If it goes like this EVERY fight we have... *shes fighting sneaky and smart... shes on the highest school possible here... im just mediore schooled* I dont think I can continue this.

Sorry to bother you guys with it but I can`t really get rid of this... Dont even know if this is in the right topic. This was done hasty since I HAD to tell it to whoever wanted to listen... Sorry o-o

First, I'm suprised that there can be still differences on terms of educational field in relationships. I understand, to bare with each other some leveled inteligence is needed, but heck, if your girl is thinking the same way you do (she's from good hs, I'm from medicore) then you're in a bad alley. It's also bad if you think that way. Do not downgrade yourself. Once my friend told me that one of the worst parting excuses she heard from her former boyfriend was "I don't think I'm good enough for you". It's hard to be in a relationship with a pessimist. Especially when you're young. For both sides.

And while I don't know the reason why she hates games, I can't tell you what to do, because I could do more harm than good.
If she sees them as a pointless timewasters - she's right. Many people like pointless timewasters, and nobody is throwing them to jail. Not everyone has to be a jolly fellow with a mission to help the needy and join Peacecorps or that World Servants you've mentioned. If she can not understand that or tolerate your pointless timewasters - unles they're a real 12h-a-day-like wasters - then IMO she's being opressive. I've been through that too many times to know that I'm not patient enough to bother. If you feel like you're the only tolerant side, you should pass on that boatride.
But that's my opinion, and - as some may say - I'm not a good advisor for relationship cases.

Cons for me that I'm rather a loner with good skill of socialplay. Twisted Evil
And oh, yeah, that shifts me smoothly - being an actor in a theatre of life. Very Happy

Well, one of my friends bought a small, taiwanese, pocket-size radio for one euro on a flea market or something and hanged it on a front mirror.
Can't say that was the best solution, but, heck, it played three radio stations quite well and nobody cried after it got broke after a month. Very Happy

Spending 92 freakin' minutes playing the veteran level of MW2: spec ops: homeland security with my dad (who is not the best player but neither am I). In that game, you can only kill tanks with some sort of rocket launcher (no bullets or grenades), so we spent the last twenty minutes pinned down in a restaurant whilst the tank circled the building. Eventually, I built up the courage to run across to the next building and grab a RPG-7. It had only four shots. I fired two from that building but the tank was just too far away! I ran back to my dad in the restaurant and we planned our strike. I went prone, RPG-7 in hand, and crawled, slowly, to the front of the restaurant. Many times I looked up to find the tank passing the restaurant, no more than ten feet away. When I had reached the front, I took a deep breath, jumped up, and fired.

It was a hit. My dad and I rejoiced; we high-fived and cheered as we received the third star for the mission. Mission Success.


Being a gamer can rock.

Holy shit if you are on the 360, I would love to have your Gamertag.

I need somebody to go through Spec ops. I have them all unlocked it is just the matter of getting Gold Stars on them, they are the only achievements I need until both MW2 and Oblivion are my fully-completed games.
