I just got to 7,000 Blams! Blam points seem to be picking up a bit lately, which is nice, as I need to increase mine.

Screenshot for the hell of it:

I had a streak of about the same length, too. Just don't leave NG for 2 years like I did.

We used to pay 20% of what you pay, now we pay 50%. You can understand why we're upset.
Yeah, but prices nearly doubled here as well. Plus you pay per gallon, while we have to pay per litre (gallons > litre).

What difference does it make what measure of volume we pay for? If you convert one measurement to the other, then you can compare the price each country pays per ____ (whatever unit).

O_o

That's like saying "ooo, I drive 50 kph, and you drive 50 mph... you're driving so much faster than me!" ... well... yeah, duh. #;-}>

You also have to understand that you guys do not drive anywhere near as much as we do. The nearest big cities to my city (Houston) are 180, 200, and 350 miles away. If you drove that far from where you are in a straight line, I'd wager you'd be in the Atlantic Ocean. Am I right?
Define "nearest big cities". There aren't that many cities with 1 milion inhabitants in europe (germany has about three. Berlin, Munich and Hamburg).
But it's true that Germany (if not Europe in general) is very densly populated. And of course the distances are very different, as you've already statet. While in the USA you can drive for hours and hours in one direction and still be in the same state you have traveled through 4 different countries in Europe.

Big cities is relative. How about "places lots of people go." They're a lot closer together everywhere in Europe than they are in America, unless you count Russia, I suppose.

And yes, Germany is larger than most other countries in Europe, but I was speaking to Shanus, who's in Ireland, so for his purposes, I was mostly talking about how if you drive any appreciable distance from where you are in either Ireland or England/Scotland/Wales... you end up on the coastline.

Another problem might be that people from the US define who they are via their cars (it's even worse over there than it's here in Germany, that's saying something! :P).

It's been our culture ever since Ford churned out 100s of thousands of Model Ts, man.

The public transportation might be another big problem. I don't even own a driver's license but due to the great public transportation system over here I don't have that big of a problem when I try to get from A to B.

Yes, I lived in Japan for 3 years, and I could get anywhere I wanted to go fairly quickly with buses and trains.

Here in America, that is only possible in the biggest cities, and even then only in the center of most of those cities (New York and Washington D.C. are the only real exceptions, with Europe-style public transit).

Oy. You there. STOP THAT.

(sigh)

But of course. All 36ness makes me happy.
35.

A good number. Just add 1 and you've got my bliss.

BTW, I haven't "been to Japan once." I went to Japan for a few days in 1984 when my family and I were touring all around the Pacific Rim.... and I lived in Japan from 1988 to 1991, for those 3 years. 6th, 7th, and 8th grades.
Oh, it was more than once. I get it now.

That... plus I wouldn't describe living in a country for 3 years as "going once." #;-}>

The reactions from GTA fans after seeing my GTA quiz are even funnier.

If I watch/play and review that, you might experience some genuine flames from teh gfox, you know.

You should do LUL catch-ups more often then. ;)

Well, not every page of LUL is a cool number, man.

The next one I definitely don't want to miss is 2222. Then 2345.

I already have three of their actual albums, which are Fly By Night, 2112 (duh) and Moving Pictures.

I've got A Farewell to Kings and Power Windows.

I got the former because the songs from that album are some of my faves on Chronicles, the best of 2-CD set.... aside from the obvious stuff I already knew of Rush from radio before I even got ANY of their stuff myself (such as Tom Sawyer, Limelight, Spirit of Radio, etc.).

And I got the latter because Chronicles has a live version of Mystic Rhythms that I REALLY love, and I wanted to get the studio version. Sadly, the studio version (from that album), isn't as good. ;_;

Which is pretty rare.

I almost always like the studio version of songs more than the live versions.

I guess U2's Bad is another exception. But I love both versions of that.

Sorry Bedn, but everyone who's behind Shrapnel in exp "gained" 1 exp ranking in the past week, because Shrapnel's rank glitched to "0" a few days ago.

It's a lie. You're still #70 in exp. Just like I'm still #64, not 63 like my profile erroneously states.

That goes for everyone else, of course. Just that most people outside of the top 100 aren't going to notice just one ranking move as much as we who hardly ever get to pass anyone do.

You will be passing alexsmolik soon to actually take #69, I'd wager.

Nice, I'll be happy enough with that

You an Aerosmith fan? A lot of GH fans aren't, but I like 'em okay. Not one of my fave bands by any measure, and I don't really like their 1985-1995 period too much, back when they started making all those Alicia Silverstone videos and all... but some of their 70s/early 80s stuff is pretty awesome, and they are certainly about as far as you can get from a one-hit wonder. 30 songs for a GH will be easy for them to provide, and only 5 of them will be "huh????" producers.

They've got an amazing amount of well known works.

It'll be 2 other bands' songs and 3 Aerosmith songs per level/tier of the game.
W00t, we need some variation and more things by Kiss, Malmsteen and Satriani

I'm afraid none of those will be the other bands. I've seen several of them mentioned on a GH.com forum posting. They include bands such as White Stripes, the Kinks, etc.

It's times like these that I wish BEEBO was on the Portal banner.

Oh wait... that's ALL the time. Grrrrrr.
Would BEEBO be inversely graffiti'd? Would he lose the moustache?

Hahahah. Well, BEEBO has had different facial hair over the years. They could still slap the same sort of beard on him that everyone else has. Or give him a handlebar moustache like they gave Foamy.

Ohhh you better be with the Habs this year buddy :)
Never. My money, as always is riding on the Avs and their 3-2 lead voer the Wild holding out. 80% of teams winning game 5 from a 2-2 series tie go on to win that series. We won last night, so hopefully we can kick the Wild out of the playoffs in Denver!

Who the hell are the Habs, anyway?

gfoxcook - 20000 exp

Thankee kindly.

There isn't much of a conflict anymore. There's the odd gangland thing but that's the same everywhere really.

Again, I really didn't mean violence.

The incompatibilities are really non existant. The two religions are so similar it's actually silly. I can imagine if people in Ireland weren't so stubborn and could actually accept that fact there would be no hate etc. But that's just being idealist and our society doesn't work like dat.

They SHOULD be non-existent, but then what were people fighting over for decades and decades, eh?

No matter how similar humans are, if they're stuck together in a room, a city, a nation, wherever... (a planet, even)... they will find a way to have problems with the differences of others and fight about it. Hopefully the fighting stays to verbal, political, economical.... and doesn't turn to war.

I didn't know it was that much of a change, that really is bad. But the thing is the world is in "economic crisis" so everything must seem to be justified. I heard that Saudi Arabia isn't producing as much fuel as it did because the demand has gone down. But then how can prices be so high if there doesn't need to be as much??? I think it's way too controlled, we need oil & oil based products so why not make them hugely expensive WE'LL STILL BUY IT.

Yeah, I know we're not alone. But we're actually doing way worse than you guys right now. Europe is doing well compared to the US.

We're all sucking ass compared to China, of course.

Well depends in what direction but yes pretty much, I never actually thought of it that way.

Well, to the West, then. That should guarantee it. #;-}>

How much would it cost to drive accross Texas then, roughly. I'd say to go from Belfast to Cork, most northenly & southernly cities (well they're just 2 glorified towns really :P) it would probably cost about 100Euro ish.

It's 1000 miles from the west tip of Texas to the east tip. So.... about $120 bucks, at least.

I suppose I have to travel halfway across Ireland just to go to college from my house on Monday morning. And it does only take me about 2 hours.

Hahah. If Americans could travel halfway across the country in 2 hours by roads, then yes... you wouldn't hear us complaining about the current fuel costs. #;-}>

I find it really bad that an economy built on transport and competitivness is now starting to break down just because people must meet the same profit margins. I have a great respect for truck drivers. There job is so hard and time consuming. And without them we wouldn't have anything at all really.

Yeah. You gotta respect the truckers.

I suppose the only advantage you have is your road system is better but that's only a small easing on the strain of the driving problem. And mainland europe's roads are excellent. I suppose it's only a matter of time till it gets worse. Unless dratic steps are taken.

I think it's a myth our road system is better than Europe's. It's certainly bigger. But that doesn't mean better.

Japan has way more of its entire nation covered by paved roads than we do. Japan could claim best.

I'm just stopping by to say that I'm now a Top 60 B/Per! with Dakka942 bearing down on me, I'm not sure how long it will last, but I'm pretty sure that when I catch my next target, I'll be amking the entry to the top 60 for good.

Oh yeah... I passed YoinK to get in there :P

I'll be back with a list after I've been to the pub. I've got a football game to watch and 2 hours of cricket practice to plough through today :)

Groovy. Congrats.

Sounds from your post in the EGRL, though, like you don't expect to be able to hit that next target by next Saturday in time for the next EGRL update... so you'll be back to #61 when Dakka passes you up... and stuck there till next week, eh? Oh wells.

That was his only holiday, though. Yeah, I'll look through my PMs and deposit his alt. Haggard, perhaps you should do the same.

We used to pay 20% of what you pay, now we pay 50%. You can understand why we're upset.
Yeah, but prices nearly doubled here as well. Plus you pay per gallon, while we have to pay per litre (gallons > litre).
What difference does it make what measure of volume we pay for? If you convert one measurement to the other, then you can compare the price each country pays per ____ (whatever unit).

O_o

That's like saying "ooo, I drive 50 kph, and you drive 50 mph... you're driving so much faster than me!" ... well... yeah, duh. #;-}>

Well, it IS a difference. Like: Someone pays 2 bucks for 2 <unit> and another person pays 1,30 bucks for 1 <unit> and then someone complains that he has to pay more. ;)

You also have to understand that you guys do not drive anywhere near as much as we do. The nearest big cities to my city (Houston) are 180, 200, and 350 miles away. If you drove that far from where you are in a straight line, I'd wager you'd be in the Atlantic Ocean. Am I right?
Define "nearest big cities". There aren't that many cities with 1 milion inhabitants in europe (germany has about three. Berlin, Munich and Hamburg).
But it's true that Germany (if not Europe in general) is very densly populated. And of course the distances are very different, as you've already statet. While in the USA you can drive for hours and hours in one direction and still be in the same state you have traveled through 4 different countries in Europe.
Big cities is relative. How about "places lots of people go." They're a lot closer together everywhere in Europe than they are in America, unless you count Russia, I suppose.

Yes. That is definatly right, I guess. ^^

And yes, Germany is larger than most other countries in Europe, but I was speaking to Shanus, who's in Ireland, so for his purposes, I was mostly talking about how if you drive any appreciable distance from where you are in either Ireland or England/Scotland/Wales... you end up on the coastline.

I didn't say anything about how big Germany is. I just pointed out that there aren't that much "big cities" in Europe. ;)

Another problem might be that people from the US define who they are via their cars (it's even worse over there than it's here in Germany, that's saying something! :P).
It's been our culture ever since Ford churned out 100s of thousands of Model Ts, man.

"Any customer can have a car painted any colour that he wants so long as it is black!"
Aaah, I just love that quote. (even though it has nothing to do with the topic :P)

Might as well give it a try. I do remember he mentioned a holiday a while ago, but I thought that he'd already been on holiday and come back. Maybe not, I don't know.
That was his only holiday, though. Yeah, I'll look through my PMs and deposit his alt. Haggard, perhaps you should do the same.

As I've already stated: He already changed the PW of his main, so I don't have access to the account. :/

It's a lie!

*le gasp*

You an Aerosmith fan? A lot of GH fans aren't, but I like 'em okay. Not one of my fave bands by any measure, and I don't really like their 1985-1995 period too much, back when they started making all those Alicia Silverstone videos and all... but some of their 70s/early 80s stuff is pretty awesome, and they are certainly about as far as you can get from a one-hit wonder. 30 songs for a GH will be easy for them to provide, and only 5 of them will be "huh????" producers.

They've got an amazing amount of well known works.

Ever heard their bonus tracks on the latest best of CD they released? I love Sedona Sunrise.

It'll be 2 other bands' songs and 3 Aerosmith songs per level/tier of the game.
W00t, we need some variation and more things by Kiss, Malmsteen and Satriani
I'm afraid none of those will be the other bands. I've seen several of them mentioned on a GH.com forum posting. They include bands such as White Stripes, the Kinks, etc.

White stripes meh. Kinks is okay and I wouldn't mind some of the Hives as well...

Ohhh you better be with the Habs this year buddy :)
Never. My money, as always is riding on the Avs and their 3-2 lead voer the Wild holding out. 80% of teams winning game 5 from a 2-2 series tie go on to win that series. We won last night, so hopefully we can kick the Wild out of the playoffs in Denver!
Who the hell are the Habs, anyway?

It's short for their nickname - Les Habitants. We refer to the second best franchise ever to come out of the Quebec area - the Montreal Canadiens. The best being the Quebec Nordiques, as they decided to move to Denver and become the Avalanche. Montreal have never been that sensible :P

Groovy. Congrats.

Thanks

Sounds from your post in the EGRL, though, like you don't expect to be able to hit that next target by next Saturday in time for the next EGRL update... so you'll be back to #61 when Dakka passes you up... and stuck there till next week, eh? Oh wells.

Well, if I can keep this pace up, then I've got a chance of fending off Dakka942. Otherwise, I'll just have to bide my time and pass someone like pwroftheseagoat or Dream-of-Duke to get into the top 60 again!

Oh yeah... I passed YoinK to get in there :P
Take that, YOINKERS.

Apparently, he took it.

I'll be back with a list after I've been to the pub. I've got a football game to watch and 2 hours of cricket practice to plough through today :)
BUSY DAY.

It was good. Aston Villa thumped Birmingham City 5-1. My girlfriend's dad was not home when we got in - he's a Birmingham fan, much to my disgust :P

Day of relaxation for myself. Yesterday BLEW.

My Astros lost... My Rockets lost. ;_;

Yankees lost, but that was counterbalanced by the Avs winning the series against the Wild. Looks like we'll get the Wings next. Von Minty Joy Joy!
