    Health Care Reform in the U.S.

    I have lived in a large US city so I do know what it's like and I still don't agree with the comment. Not to mention, I work in a health field. Also, I don't think it's fair to assume that people who don't have health insurance are just too lazy to get a job. There may be some people like that but not everyone is. I personally know people who do work hard but still can't afford health insurance but make too much to qualify for government assistance. There are a lot of problems with the way the health insurance system is set up and at least the health bill is addressing some of those (too lazy to list them here).

    Health Care Reform in the U.S.

    I know a lot of people in the States aren't happy about it but I'm glad that the US is finally reforming health care. It's been long overdue. Also, I've never understood the comment about "if you want health insurance, get a job." I think it ignores a lot of issues that can make it difficult for someone who is working but still can't afford health insurance. @Jayshe: Right now, the uninsured is over 15% of the population. If you look here, it describes the break down of the uninsured population. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Uninsured_in_the_United_States

    Olympics

    I watched the hockey game with the boyfriend and I thought he was going to have a heart attack because of the anxiety of it. He was so happy when the Canadians won in overtime...though I wasn't sure if the couch would hold up to his jumping up and down.

    Where are you from?

    @Valkyriet: The Aboriginal Australians have been eating kangaroo for a long time, it's not a new thing.

    Where are you from?

    @Michael: Kangaroo's not that bad, it's actually pretty tasty. I had it a few times when I was visiting Australia last year.

    Should students get money for good grades?

    My parents never gave me money for good grade but I have received a number of scholarships because of my high grades (along with other factors). That type of money for good grades I'm not going to say no to.

    Strategies for Final Battles

    One more thing, if you haven't, make sure you thoroughly search Stonetooth Cave before starting the final battle, there are some useful weapons in the chests

    Strategies for Final Battles

    I can't remember what level I was but I found it easier when I equipped the party with items that protected them from different status afflictions (can't remember which ones, I'd have to check my save file) Also, remember Mel doesn't need anything for the last battle so any good equipment on her can be put on someone else. For the actual fight, I used a lot of attacks that would cast silence, poison, or the one that caused he to hit himself. Also, the metal egg casts a shield on the party. Edit: Sometimes the pixie eggs would be useful but you have to be careful with those since they can also heal the enemy

    World Map - Aveyond: The Lost Orb

    I would find it really helpful if the areas were annotated.
  10. I'm not sure if this is a bug or something that was done on purpose but I noticed that all of the chests and money bags in the old areas from the first two chapters have been reset. Shouldn't the chests in areas that I've already been in be open if I'm using an old save. Not that I actually mind running through the areas and getting all the loot again

    getting uncursed

    @Shaz: The Easter Eggs from Moo Hatchery can curse you and you can go to Moo Hatchery while you're near Thais.

    Chests resetting in TLO

    Fair enough. There's no way that I could ignore an unopened chest.

    Olympics

    @Mopiece: Canada had been the only host country not to win gold when they were hosting until now.

    Olympics

    Obviously, someone doesn't pay much attention. It's been hard to ignore the fact that the Winter Olympics are starting soon since the Canadian stations have been airing commercials for them for about a year now. I always laughed at the ones that used the phrase, "Canada has never won gold on home soil." It kind of gives a conflicting message on motivation.

    Guild Life Journeys :: RP Sign-ups and Discussion

    @Stardale: Do you want this moved to HBT so you can start the RP there? I'm not sure how much longer the festival forum will be open.

    How do you buy your milk?

    @KTC: LOL, it's a very special kind of milk.

    How do you buy your milk?

    I usually get milk in a cartoon. Growing up in the States, I never saw milk in a bag until I spent some time in Ontario. I live in Saskatchewan now but I haven't seen milk in a bag here. It's all in cartoons or plastic jugs.

    What would you do?

    An animal has to eat, it's hard to tell an animal not to eat a certain plant.

    Hearts are Wild - Newsletter

    I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day but it makes a great excuse for my boyfriend and I to splurge on the really expensive and extremely yummy chocolate. It's way too expensive to get on a regular basis but it's well worth it.

    Sometimes (RxL friendship)

    I assume that purple is Rhen and green is Lars but it would still help is you state that. You can never assume what other people will assume.

    The Pendragon Family Tree

    If you think that is bad, try mapping out families where the family tree doesn't split much. Been there, done that as a research assistant and depending on the software, it makes it very hard to make the connections (genealogy software published by certain religious organizations really don't like multiple spouses or relationships between close relatives)

    The Pendragon Family Tree

    @Aislingyngaio: True enough, but it's still an amusing observation if you don't bother to read the details. Can you imagine that relationship? I don't think either would survive.

    The Pendragon Family Tree

    Lydia as Edwards' wife :S So something did happened, I was confused about that part.... By the way, the way the family tree is set up, it makes it look like Mel and Lydia are married. They're right next to each other with Edward on the far side.
  24. Well, from the article, it seems like the main reason for the ban was a bias against male transsexual, at least, that's what is say in the article...I really don't really see how playing the opposite gender in a role playing game is evidence of that and like I said before it really highlights the biases of the people making the ban. Also, the use of web-cams to verify the gender of a player seems like a 'big brother' approach

    Need some advice

    Ditto on what KTC said, definitely need more information on the format and how many pictures you're planning on using. Anyways, the only suggestion that I have right now is formatting it as a graphic novel. You could take a look at a few to see how they do it. But without knowing all the details of it, I'm not sure if that would work.
