  1. That part is good, I like it. I like the interaction between Talia and Tailor since you don't get that in the game.
  2. Both sides brought up some good points, but I would have to agree with the parents should be responsible and by responsible I don't mean the parents are the only ones that have to deal with the consequences while the children get off free. The parents' responsibility lies in teaching and setting rules for the children to follow. I like the point that ljspence brought up in her open about teenager not being fully capable of making rational decisions because their brain is still developing. During this period, it is necessary for the parents to continue raising and teaching their children. While I do agree that teenage children should accept the consequences of the actions, I did not think that this is the same as the children should be responsible while the parents are not. There does come a point where the parents have to let the children make their decisions and mistakes but that is just part of raising a children into an adult. Edit: I'm kinda curious if an individual's age would make a different in how people vote on this.
  3. Welcome Dreamz, hope to see you around the forum.
  4. I really like this so far. It's funny. But chapter 2 and 3 are the same.

    YDF Review

    I found this review of YDF from GameZebo. The reviewer gave it 3 1/2 stars out of 5 http://www.gamezebo.com/games/yummy-drink-factory/review
  9. The electricity reminds of those ancient batteries that were found in either Egypt or the Middle East. I can't remember which. I saw a Mythbusters episode about it once. They were trying to see if they worked and to figure out possible usage of them. As for the 20th century, here's another one: penicillin discovered in 1928 imagine where we would be without that one
  10. Steroids was what I thought when I first read the article but it's different then steroids The drug is still being tested in mice so they don't know how well it would work in humans or what the long terms effects are. The main thing that stuck me about it is that it is possible that people may see the title of the article and think that they don't have to exercise, they can just take a pill for that. Which can be a serious problem. People don't excercise enough as is.
  11. 'Knowing' someone is having some sort of social connection. From what I understand in the study, they used electronic communications between two people as the social connection. I would imagine for this you don't even have to have met the individual in person. It could be someone you know only from the internet.
  12. Putting a rock in a chest, that's too funny Sounds like something I would do as a joke.
  13. Someone you know is anyone that you have a social connection with whether you consider them a friend, just an acquaintance, or even an enemy. the original article link has expired so I added a new one in the first post to a similar article.
  14. Lars being Rhen's slave for a day...I wonder what she will make him do. I had to laugh at him tripping over his own feet. Too funny
  15. @Oracle: Wow, I haven't seen a rotary phone in a long time. The only phone I own right now is a cell phone. I figured if I'm paying as much as I am for it, why bother paying for a landline as well.
  16. Here's my current one: http://i336.photobucket.com/albums/n338/Mizzou_AM/desktop.jpg[/img] Thanks Oracle for telling me how to take a screenshot.
  17. Quick question, how do I take a screen shot of my computer and save a copy of it? Once I figure that out, I'll post a picture of my desktop.
  18. Here's another one...the cellphone I have a love/hate relationship with the cellphone. It's great for when I'm out of the house and need to get ahold of someone or they need to get ahold of me. But I hate seeing people always glued to them, especially when they're driving. I don't know how many times that I've crossed the street (at a crosswalk, of course) and almost gotten hit because the driver was too busy talking on the phone to be paying attention to the pedestrian right in front of them.
  19. Wouldn't it be better to have two topics, one for each question. Otherwise it might get alittle confusing.
  20. I haven't seen that movie, but I've heard of it. I was actually thinking of printing off a copy and mailing it to my grandparents. They're not much on technology.
  21. Weaving fabric has been around a long long time. I'm always amazed by the amount of small details that goes into hand woven fabric.
  22. I always have to laugh when the average number of people is reported with a portion of a person (i.e. 0.6 people). I get a rather creepy image of only part of a person walking around in my head. I'm not sure how population growth would affect the number but I could imagine that the increased use of the internet through out the world might decrease the number or keep the number the same.
  23. Here's an interesting news article. If you're not familiar with the 'Kevin Bacon' theory, it's also known as the 'Six Degrees of Separation.' It's the folklore that any two strangers on Earth are only separated by six people. This was recently confirmed by a massive study of electronic communication. Researchers of the study "concluded that any two people on average are distanced by just 6.6 degrees of separation, meaning that they could be linked by a string of seven or fewer acquaintances." Here's the link to the news article if your interested: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/25988549/ - Edit: link expired Funny, how something that is just folklore doesn't become 'true' until it is 'proven' by science. By the way, I am a researcher myself but can be alittle skeptical about it at times. EDIT: the original article seems to be expired. So here's a link to a similar article http://www.guardian.co.uk/technology/2008/aug/03/internet.email
  24. This is great! I was always a little overwhelmed by the roleplaying games here. Maybe I'll give it a shot at some point. I agree with Mae about having a short main points section or highlighting key words. Sometimes I need a quick reminder but don't want to read too much to find what I'm looking for. Not that I'm being lazy....
  25. One benefit of the media is that we know what is going on around the world and can have up to the minute coverage of events, such as the Olympics. Did the modern Olympics start in the the 20th century? *goes off and looks* Nope they started in 1894, just missed it...
