  1. What's your favorite war?? Well, not really favorite, but the one that you find the most interesting and the one that you like to research the most. For me, it has to be World War 2. I really don't know why. Maybe it's Hitler or Pearl Harbor or how we kicked the nazis asses or the 2 bombs we dropped on Japan, but I find it really interesting.

      or the 2 bombs we dropped on Japan, but I find it really interesting.

      Interesting in the "oh wow that's cool" sense, or interesting in the "holy shit that's morbid" sense?

      "Woow, two atomic bombs were dropped on Japan! Amazing!"

       

      World War I interests me. It's facinating when you see most nations suddenly fighting, banding together to fight who they would all believe is a common enemy. Especially because the Serbian assassination at the start was simply an excuse to say "now it's time to kick your ass". There are no enemies, just nations fighting for power.

      I don't think it's great. I just think it's pretty amazing. Think about it. A man made item than can demolish mile after mile after mile of anything. It's pretty amazing. But after all, it's war. They bombed Pearl Harbor. They hit us, we hit them back, harder.

      why would you have a favorite instance of thousands of people dying

    5. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @Shaddy the guy Like I said, it's not really a favorite but one that you find interesting to research.

      I personally find the Cold War to be a fascinating for the sheer social and political complexity which underlies the two superpower's attempts to stay ahead of each other while being fully aware that the other that the other side could blow them to hell at a moments notice.

      I don't find massive destruction and millions of innocent lives lost if not ruined among many other horrible things due to war "interesting" in the slightest. Not even to research.

      I think WW2 has the most important lessons with Hitler, Mussolini and Stalin around. And also the nuclear bombings and carpet bombings. A lot can be learnt to improve our future and moral compass of humanity.

      It's always good to learn about, and remember the past. To prevent history from repeating itself.

  2. I'm so sick of people using the K word. It's such a racist and offensive term.

      I never heard of that word used as an offensive word. Goomba (iconic Mario enemy) is an offensive word in NE USA

    8. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @KHCast I actually don't find it offensive or racist. I specifically said it because all these "politically correct" morons say that every word ever used to distinguish a certain ethnicity or nationality is offensive and racist. Sort of a parody if you will.

  3. That moment you find out that Major Nelson from "I Dream Of Jeannie" and J.R. from "Dallas" are played by the same actor.

  5. I need some help. I was on my HP laptop and I shut the screen. When I opened the screen the power button was blinking and the screen wasn't turning on so I held it down until it stopped blinking. The screen still won't turn on and when I plug in the charger the light comes on to show it's charging. If someone can, please help.

    1. Tara

      It doesn't go into the HP logo or anything after a full hard reboot?

    2. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      I tried but I can't figure out how to do a hard reboot. What exactly does that do?? I wouldn't think it deletes anything or resets it does it??

    3. Tara

      Tara

      No.  It just means you hold down the power button until it's off.  If after holding it long enough and it turns off and it goes into the HP logo before permanently going black, you might try booting into safe mode and doing a system restore.

      If it doesn't do anything at all, then you might try hard rebooting again. take out the battery, hold down the power button for about 40 seconds, replace the battery, and try again.

      If that doesn't work, it sounds like your video driver is corrupted (or your screen is broken, but it sounds like the former to me) and you may have to take it to be repaired.

    4. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      Ok. Thank you for your help. 

      I actually have 1 more question. Was there any way to prevent this or is there any explanation for why it happened??

    5. Tara

      Tara

      There's too many factors that could possibly explain it, so it depends on a lot of things.  Ideally, you can prevent it with proper maintenance and not looking at shady porn sites or something, but sometimes computer parts get old or they malfunction just because.  It's hard to say.

    6. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      Well, again, Thank you.

    7. Tara

      No problem.

  6. I can't seem to find anything but I'm pretty sure I heard that they were voting today. Is Gorsuch in??

  7. Remember when Amiibo's were the biggest thing and people were spending $70 or $80 for some just to have them all??

    1. Milo

      Milo

      The Toys-To-Life genre as a whole is arguably now in its twilight years. Skylanders has taken a massive decline and Disney unceremoniously killed off Disney Infinity a while back. amiibos are still around, but have largely taken a backseat in importance, they haven't been used for much in Nintendo's games outside of cosmetics (Smash Bros. being the lone exception). Lego Dimensions seems to be doing OK though--presumably because all of the toys are made for one game, and each toy --based on its IP-- usually also has DLC pieces included.

  8. Who else thinks that Al Bundy is one of the most realistic and truthful TV characters??

  9. I'm going to remember this day forever. In like 3 or 4 years I'm going to be sitting back remembering the day of the big Mania and Forces reveal.

  10. I can't wait to get that blue vinyl album. 

  11. SONIC FORCES!!!!!!!! I was hoping for SA3 but I like it. 

  12. Well tonight was the night. Workaholics aired it's final episode. I think it's funny that Comedy Central gave them an extra 4 minutes and 20 seconds of airtime (420, get it??). They didn't even ask for it. Comedy Central gave it to them. 

  13. What is your favorite TV sitcom/cop show drama catchphrase?? I don't know if I could name mine. There are so many classics too choose from.

      yeah man i agree too Trump Tower should get a new gate too the one they have already is old and kinda rusty #TrumpTowerGate

  16. You know what I hate?? When I'm trying to make a top 5 list or a top 10 list and I have like 70 things to choose from. Usually it's a top 5 or top 10 favorite things list and it's so hard because there are so many amazing things to choose from. 

  17. Everyone is so excited for the Nintendo Switch and I'm just going crazy like "Wow, I can't believe I never heard of this game. The NES is great!!!!"

  19. If I said how I feel about this guy, I think I would be banned from the site. Who else but ignorant liberals could bring politics into football?? Just watch the game. If your team wins then be happy, if your team loses be sad, but don't be a scum bag about it and try to bring politics into it.

      @KHCast of course I do. Just because I disagree with someone, doesn't mean I don't think he has the same rights as me.

      How can you fucking disagree with who someone is?

    6. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @KHCast totally aside from the argument... You meant to say "if it still is an offensive incentive word". 

      @KHCast I would discuss this with you, but I've been talking about all this other stuff for so long with you guys, I'm pretty worn out. I can probably only type for another 2 more minutes before my fingers turn blue from typing. 

    7. Kiah

      Kiah

      I'm wondering how much deeper of a hole you are going to dig yourself into. Just stop while you are already behind. And you dropped the ball about being mean and rude already in the status. Let's just add offensive on top of that.  

    8. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      I can't seem to understand why everyone is against me. I know of other Trump supporters here. I guess they are just scared to be blacklisted by their "friends" if they express their political views.

    10. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      You don't understand why everyone is against you?

      You started out by stereotyping liberals as ignorant. You went into a rant about uncritical patriotism towards the military which isn't gonna get much play here. You victimized yourself by citing stereotypes no one in this status chain even used. And now you've ended up on implying you wanted to say homophobic and transphobic insults to our members. This is to say nothing of the fact that you play semantics and move the goal posts, and in general aren't able to form a cogent argument.

      And you wonder why everyone is against you? It's because you're making terrible arguments and keep insulting people while complaining about insults yourself. There's nothing to do in this status other than post gifs and point out the absurdity of it all.

    13. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @Nepenthe actually I never insulted any member. I never called anyone out by name and gave them a barrage of insults. If my views insult you, then I'm sorry, but if your views insulted me I wouldn't hold it against you. 

    14. Nepenthe

      Nepenthe

      If someone said "I could call you the n-word, but I won't," it would still be an insult because you still think I'm an n-word. 

      This is forgetting the fact that anti-LGBT views are also inherently insulting, as in, you cannot hold them and not be insulting to LGBT people.

    15. Celestia

      You know, I actually didn't realize until I read it again a few times that "unless your (originally) a woman" was a jab against trans girls.

      Whoa whoa whoa. Did this go from politics in sports to saying wanting to call a gay person a "the amazing taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch™" isn't bigoted since you didn't actually say it? What the hell has this night become?

      Holy shit and then you actually used a racial slur.

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @Conando I did?? What racial slur did I use??

      Actually I didn't use the word in that meaning. It was a test. A Pooka is the red guy from Dig Dug. I was testing using it to see if you would automatically assume it was a racial slur, and I was right.

      Pooka. It's a word specifically used by racists to not sound racist. You know, it's still damn racist when meant that context. Also, why the fuck are racists appropriating an Irish fairy name for racism anyway?

      More like you got caught with your pants down and are trying to save face.

      In general though, I'm locking these statuses and staff are gonna deliberate who has their accounts in the morning. Happy Super Bowl y'all.

      Oh thank goodness, my account will be purged in the morn'

  20. Holy shit, that Super Bowl!!!! The Patriots had a bad start and made a comeback and won BIG LEAGUE!!!! I knew it the whole time. There was no way they could lose. 

    1. KHCast

      KHCast

      I mean there were multiple ways they could have lost. They didn't really have a good game despite winning. It was literally more out of incompetence than anything, with the Falcons suddenly last quarter deciding to hold the ball and run it instead of take their time

      Still congrats I guess man

    2. Kiah

      Kiah

      The Patriots didn't win "big league". A lot of stupid and questionable things happened in the second half that just really worked in their favor as they did not play a good game overall at all. 

    3. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @Kiah It doesn't matter if the first 3 quarters it was 60 to 0, as long as they won in the end. And yes they did win big league. They were down 21 to 3 at the end of the first half and by the end of the third quarter were down 28 to 10, but in the last quarter, just destroyed them. 

    4. KHCast

      KHCast

      Again, it wasn't really destroying so much as self-destruction on the Falcons side.  If it was 60-0, and Falcons started doing fuck all and gave the pats the win, it doesn't change that the pats had a overall bad game.

    5. Conando Claus

      Conando Claus

      Let's not mince words here. They definitely could have lost, but that comeback was PHENOMENAL.

    6. KHCast

      KHCast

      Making history and getting a comeback doesn't suddenly make the bad shit you did irrelevant 

      It was a impressive convecaj, but that's all it was imo

      *comeback

    7. Kiah

      Kiah

      That's easy for you to say and I still disagree. The Falcons among other things happening self-destructed and if you are going to be in denial about it or whatever it is you are doing then I don't know what to tell you nor will I bother to figure it out.

      Yes the Patriots won the game but let's not act like what I said didn't happen including the Patriots acting out of character team-wise by not playing a good game. 

    8. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @Kiah I didn't say they didn't have a bad game. I think they started out horribly, but they played a fantastic last quarter and won the game. 

    9. Kiah

      Kiah

      No one is disputing that but like I said that wasn't the only thing that happened that caused them to win the game. I don't know how to make that any more clearer and I'm not going to waste my time trying to do so let alone trying to reason because I see in some cases it simply doesn't work. Even in regards to football. 

    10. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      I'm not going to say anything on the fact that you basically called me unreasonable besides this. I just want you to know that I understand the negative comment you said about me and I'm going to be the bigger man, and I'm not going to insult you back. 

  21. I did not see the premier of "Superior Donuts" but I did see a clip, and I only have 1 question. Why are they using the restaurant set from Mike And Molly??

  22. I would like to answer a question I was asked earlier by @Indigo Rush. When I said that experts found voter fraud highly susceptible you asked my sources besides Fox News, and I never got the chance to answer. My source besides Fox News is the Wall Street Journal. I do not want to bring up the discussion again, but I just wanted to answer the question.

      Indigo Rush

      You just brought up the discussion again, though

      I had to hunt down a legible article and found nothing but a paywall on their (WSJ) official site. Since this is still technically "breaking" news, I will wait and see once more news comes to light. Until then, assuming true, that's despicable and not unexpected from the DNC. 

      Looking forward to seeing how this totals up to Trump's alleged 3 million claim, though.

    2. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      I would like to say once again, that I did not want to bring up the discussion but simply answer your question.

    4. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      I can't believe it. I'm trying to answer a question you asked me and your attacking me by calling my close minded. Why can't you just accept it and say "Ok, this is his source" and forget about it. I mean, come on. What are you?? Itchin for an argument??

    5. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      I'd love it if you engaged us without backing out last minute for once, yeah. You just wanted to to get the last word in. 

      Every time you post this sort of thing, you will be met with opposition. Either man up and engage in the debate or stop. 

      SSMB isn't a soapbox, we're a discussion forum. 

      We will challenge you. We have that right just as you have your right to speak your mind. 

    6. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      I love how you have to think your better than somebody. "I just want to get the last word in"?? That's absurd. I was just answering your question, but obviously, when someone answers your question, 3 hours after the original conversation ended I want to add, you think the person just wants to "get in the last word". It's really laughable that you believe that. Believe what you want, but I was only answering your question.

      Goodnight! I look forward to this next time.

  23. Does anyone else feel that Sonic '06 is overated as the worst game in the galaxy?? It's got more than it's fair share of flaws, I agree, but I can still play it and get some enjoyment out of it, and the music is really good. 

    1. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      I can enjoy the game somewhat, only for how glitchy and broken it is. Personally I feel that Shadow the Hedgehog is worse than Sonic 06 is.

    2. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      The glitchy infinite gems is fun too. At least '06 doesn't make you play the first level 10 times. 

    3. The drunkard from space!

      The drunkard from space!

      The gems are pretty fun! They add some amazing replay value as well! It's legitimately super fun to go back to the previous Sonic levels and break the boundaries by using the gems! It's really easy to make an S rank because of the slow down gem as well.

      As for playing the first level 10 times I kinda agree... only because Westopolis isn't a terrible level. It's an okay one. I don't mind replaying that zone just like I don't mind replaying Green Hill with almost every new Sonic game. At least it's Westopolis I have to replay as opposed to the ARK levels, now those stages are terrible.

    4. Indigo Rush

      Indigo Rush

      Sonic 06 needs to be understood in its context to really enjoy it for what it is. It gets the flack it usually deserves when played by the average outsider or bright-eyed budding Sonic fan (who also is not a young gamer) where they don't have any positive presuppositions towards the character. Which, to be blunt, made up a majority of its players when it came out. The first next-gen HD Sonic game was going to leave a lasting impression on that generation. Too bad it ended up being the... experience that it was.

    5. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      And what I find the worst part about it is that it could have been a great game. If only they didn't rush it out for the 15th anniversary it probably would have been one of the best 3D games they ever made. I think story wise and character wise it has a lot of potential. If instead of rushing it they just built on that, I think it would have been a great game. 

  24. I can't take it. I'm LMFAOing right now. People keep saying that President Trump won because of Russia, insinuating voter fraud, and now multiple experts have said the California, a state that she won, is highly susceptible of voter fraud. Basically if your illegal, it's extremely easy for you to vote anyway, because the only thing you have to do is check in a box if your a citizen or not. They're right. There was voter fraud, and the liberals set it up. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

      I think he was referring to the point at which I said voter supression against minorities.

      It's not like I said that for the sake of it, though - the effects of vote restrictions against them are well documented. Some of them even in the link I just posted, if I remember right.

      Are you interested in actually talking to us as people, or just antagonizing people you perceive as being on the other side, @The Jolly Chairman

    4. The Chairman Of The Board

      The Chairman Of The Board

      @Indigo Rush well personally I don't think anyone can say if someone is qualified to be president. Liberals protested both of Lincoln's inaugurations. Obviously they thought he wasn't qualified to be president and look what he did for the country. The man freed the slaves for Christ's sake. And secondly I would assume that your a liberal because any true, red white a blue blooded Rebublican couldn't talk so badly about his president the way I've seen you talk about him. 

    5. Zaysho

      You know, @The Jolly Chairman, you could at least try to have these discussions in good faith and actually engage people rather than come here to gloat and hide behind "free speech". Nobody is actually keeping you from speaking your mind and saying what you want. They want you to back it up and engage. Otherwise, you just come off as a troll.

      Shit's not hard, man.

      I hate to jump in here, but it's just amusing to me that you assume that anyone shitting on Trump just has to be a liberal. That is such a black & white view of America, & it's sad as well as pathetic that so many have that mentality.

      Well being an independent is a completely different story, I think in this day and age, the only parties should be Rebublican and Democrat but that is something completely different I don't want to get into now.

      Well you totally need to change your approach because this looks more like trolliing and baiting others as opposed to engaging them in conversation even amid various viewpoints.

      @Indigo Rush of course. I've been a Traditional Catholic all of my life, but don't tell me now that you want to say something like "Oh well of course your a Trump supporter, Jesus was a Rebublican, didn't you know??" Or some disrespectful thing like that do you??

      I have no idea what we're even talking about anymore.

      This isn't "moving the goalposts" so much as it is "moving the whole fucking field to Qatar".

      "Oh well of course your a Trump supporter, Jesus was a Republican, didn't you know?? "

      If I may interject right here, to me that doesn't like disrepect but more like someone doesn't know what the hell they're talking about at that point and straight grasping

      How important is it to you that Donald Trump is a professing Christian?

      Ok, I've been here for more than 20 minutes talking about this with you people and I really don't want to discuss it anymore. So I'll tell you what I'm going to do. I'm going to end this with something you would expect me to say because you think that all Rebublicans are the same, and youse believe in stereotypes like all Rebublicans are stupid and all Rebublicans are jerks. "Im not going to talk to youse no more because youse are all to ignorent to understand that Im the best and what I say is the truth, the whole and the only truth and youse are all a bunch of dumb meatheads". There, does that satisfy you for "proving" that all Rebublicans are stupid and naive??

      I don't understand how a political group can still have a victim complex when they've won the entire American government but okay sure.

  25. Excuse the language but the owner of Starbucks is a real jerkoff asshole.

      @Indigo Rush, you should come to my house during Christmas time when that happened and listen to my family actually, non-ironically making that piont.

      I wish I could find it more hilariouis that people were getting upset and assuming the decision was based in some kind of corporate, politically correct pandering, when actually it's because they're cheap as fuck to produce and businesses like saving money.

      I won't excuse your language or this status update actually. I don't understand why this would upset anyone for decency's sake alone. It's disgusting and sad among other things that this would even bother someone let alone getting offended over it. 

    9. Indigo Rush

      @Kiah, it's upsetting to @The Jolly Chairman because it implies that Muslims and any one from the Middle East are people.

      @Indigo Rush it has nothing to do with that. It's upsetting to me because there are American families and veterans who fought for my and your freedom living in the street and going to bed hungry because they don't have jobs, and this guy is giving away the jobs they could have to give to people who aren't even citizens. It's really disgusting. 

    12. Indigo Rush

      Can you point to me where the CEO of Starbucks, or anyone for that matter, have stated that they would exclude those people from getting jobs in lieu of the refugees, or are we going to assume the fallacious argument of exclusion for that?  

      You're taking a statement with the intent of support for people in need during a social-political crisis as a definitive incrimination towards another group of people, even though, to my current knowledge, they have never stated that they would refuse employment for US Veterans and their families. "They're showing support for this group, therefore they don't support this other group!" 

      As of right now (and before President Trump), US Veterans have been able to claim their status with the promise of a bonus tax refund, for example. Never forgetting to mention that health care options exist (under Obama's ACA) for families such as those, as well. You're very apparently buying into the alternative-rightwing hype that Democratic leaders have somehow neglected our veterans.

      Hillary ignored them, but Trump lied to them.

    13. KHCast

      You made us wait a whole day for your reasoning, and that's why? A claim that's based on nothing actually said or implied? Did you get mad when target was offering jobs and support to LGBT people since that was obviously stealing opportunities for straight white working class Americans with "actual families" and straight military vets that fought for merica?

      My father is a vet and I don't appreciate you using his service to justify intellectual dishonesty.
