That's what happens when grown-ups try and discuss popular culture - It's just wrong! I don't know if you watch skins on E4 or not, but I hate how adults assume that all us 18-19 year olds are so...idiotic purely 'cause a show created by men and women with no experience of the subject matter decree it so.

Fuck the media.

Fuck the carpool.

I agree that these are are damn annoying, ive never had one on newgrounds though.

Hm... Well yes, I'm starting to think it was just me, which I did at first. However, I saw someone on General complaining about it and when I saw Patu posted I thought that was just too big of a coincidence, so now I'm not sure anymore. The only thing I know is that I was already logged in and it happened when I tried to go to the BBS.

And yeah, site ads are annoying but how else would a website like this make money? Just because a website is big and popular doesnt mean that it can just spawn money from no where...

I know, I know... NG probably has some pretty high costs, but there are countless large webcompanies that get their main income from sources other than ads, although I don't know where from, maybe sponsorshipdeals or something like that. I also recall Tom saying they wanted to shift their focus from the ads to the store so they'd be able to be a bit more selective on what ads they place here. I don't know how realistic that is, like you said, there probably aren't that many people who buy NG merchandise, but I hope that works out.

yeah I think it would be great if they did manage to find some other way to make money off the site rather than ads. itll be interesting to see what they have up thier sleeves.

Can iPhone play flash? It would be cool if they offered downloads for something like that, id easily pay 50p or something for some of my favourite flash games. A lot of the stuff on newgrounds is way better than those shitty phone games you get, and that would also be another way for artists to get money from their work.

Unfortunately not, it was supposedly going to be included with the 2.0 update in June, but Steve said 'no no'. So basically nobody knows when it's going to be included, if it's going to be supported at all. For me the lack of Flash support is the only thing that makes my iPhone not completely perfect. Flash is like oxygen really, you don't notice it's there, but when someone takes it away from you that's when you're going to start to appreciate it. When I'm surfing on with my iPhone It feels like all the interesting websites have at least some form of Flash incorporated into it, which makes them rather useless.

Didn't you read the first part of my post? I said:

"Before I say anything, this has nothing to do with religion. Some people may think that the theory which says the earth is the center of universe, is the only true theory because otherwise it would contradict to the Bible. This is not true at all. Events in the Bible make it seem like that, but nothing has been proved in the Bible about the solar systems cycle..."

That just means I don't care what Christian sites say. I just think the other planets revolve around the earth out of my own mind. Of course, I don't strongly believe this because I don't know much and I don't really care about it so if the heliocentric theory was proved, I would be like "ok, guess I was wrong. Who gives one."

I actually like the theory of the earth moving around the sun, but I just don't think that's what happening. Then again, I don't care much. :P

And I'm not trying to make a point at all. I just wanted to hear what other people thought, not a debate.

And Coaly, yeah, I should've said "I think" instead of "I believe" :P And if you want to prove something, authorblues, become a scientist and prove it. :D

Also, a theory means what somethings thinks, not the absolute fact. :/

No a theory is a model based upon the observation of facts (observed/measured). A theory doesn't mean it's a "work in progress" it means its a interpretation of information, the idea of evolution and that the earth revolves around the sun aren't necessarily proveable, even if we observe the earth doing that who knows maybe it was a one time thing, that doesn't make them any less correct.

The earth DOES revolve around the sun, it's as questionable as whether or not I drop my computer out a window if it will fall.
Why do you think stars appear at different times of night and at different times in the year. This is honestly a little pathetic and incredibly ignorant.

Universe

I post this in the name of Vengeance, who does not want to waste his 5k post arguing about something like this.

Gravity is not a theory, it is a fact. The fact is that each mass has a natural attaction to every other mass within its field. Heavier masses aren't pulled to lighter masses as much, but are still pulled. The fact is the sun weighs a LOT more than earth, so earth is pulled towards it. Seeming as the earth already has momentum, it revolves around the sun through centripetal force. There is no debate as to whether the sun revolves around the earth or the other way. Its fact. We see the sun as moving around us due to perception. Just like Newton's (I think it was Newton) train theory. From the platform the train looks like it's passing us, but from the train it looks like the platform is passing it.

Oh, and Shortmonkey, I think you should learn the difference between a hypothesis and a theory. A theory is based on a knowledge of the facts revolving the topic, a hypothesis is just a guess.

You're damn right it's not a debate, it's just a public (internets public) display of your impressive stupidity. You must realize you're being a complete moron...and I beg you to stop, it murders my faith in the human race and it's amazing how people just keep topping the last unbelievable display of stupidity I was forced to believe.

I admit though, shortmonkey, this will definitely be hard to top...

I just watched Mr. Woodcock and you know...that's the most you can say about a movie like that I guess, but it's not really a great movie.

10:15....it's dark, lonely...and the blades are turning
I'm about to watch Saw IV with the lights off, and I'm basically alone. I know it's not the latest that it could be, but still, why not watch it now, while it's dark. Lets hope this movie's damn good...

Title Schmitle
Can we come up with better titles? I think we should try it for a while...make it interesting.

Dealing with Reviewers

I don't generally care what most people say about anything I make, but when someone makes an incredibly ignorant, or just plain stupid remark it's hard to hold back from verbally spanking them. How do you guys deal with ignorant reviewers, I tend to ignore them, but are there any other ways of dealing with them?

We all lose our heads now and then. Wheither its some dumb kid screwing 'round tryin' to make it bad for everyone, or just someone with logical and contructive critizim. No one wants to hear a negative response to their own work unless that's what their goin' for.
I've always enjoyed reviews and responding to them... the more you respond the more emotional ya seem to get. I guess its best to just leave a negative review and simply not respond to it. It's still fun to read each one though. In the end it's all just another part of NG I've grown to love.

Maturity
Wahhhhhh! I have to start becoming more mature now. TT^TT
Oh well, had to grow up eventually eh? Bein' a kid at heart though is sweet right? ...right? Luis? Right? ...I'm right, ...totally.

Oh it can be.. oh how it can be.

And 23450, I meant I don't pay much attention to comments like:
Yeah, that was boring.
or
Omg I luvyou let me suck your dick

And what I meant by ignorant was more like (and this is a real review from Armor Games):
"I'd rather watch the Disney channel in black in white on a 4" screen sitting one hundred feet away with no popcorn and sitting next to Al Gore during a slightly warm thunderstorm then play this game."

I guess I'll have to watch them all again though 'cause my best friends are female and would refuse to watch it on there own.

Did you not read Paranoia's long post about the actual definition of theory? I think J1mp/Vengeance also mentioned a simplified, basic definition.

Yeah I do watch skins sometimes, 'cause like I said earlier my best friends are, mostly, female so they all watch stuff like that really. Yeah, I can see what you mean. I just found the whole 'emo' thing quite annoying because I get called 'emo' and I'll just shrug it off but if you associate me with MCR then I'm not happy :P

Computer just shuts down?

Like I said earlier, new computer and all that crap but I'm having some teething issues. Yesterday when I first got it going it just shut down and re-booted itself. At the time I wasn't too sure what was going on and put it down to the error in the install I had got seconds before. Then It happened again about 30mins later so I looked it up. According to the internet the likely causes are RAM not installed properly or the vents are blocked and its overheating. Are there any other possible reasons? How can I find out which one it is? In my personal opinion, I would guess its overheating because after the 3rd time of it shutting itself down it every time it powered up again it would go off. What do you guys think?

Note.. half way through this post my computer did it. I'm not happy.

Your computer could be shutting for those reasons, or from a power supply that simply isnt putting out enough watts to keep everything running, I have had that problem.

You can download programs that will monitor and display your CPU temperature, and anything else on your motherboard that has a thermometer attached to it, see if you see a high temperature (past 35-50C).

The ram is likely installed properly, but open it up if you know how and check, if all else fails, think about investing in a new power supply.

Oh okay then ;)

After further investigation I have removed all the files from this computer and the computer still had the same problem so It is unlikely it was a virus. My dad said it isn't a problem with overheating as it can't be because hes been running it fine no problem - besides hes only just done all the fans and stuff. So we put it on in his room and it is running perfectly not a problem. Only difference is that I have a USB mouse, that was suspiciously playing up on the other computer, and a 4-port usb hub which isn't in it now. We are just doing some experiments and seeing what happens. I really don't see what the problem is as it is now running perfectly in his room.

Universe

Shortmonkey, i'm interested in the reason for your belief. You've recieved countless arguments as to why the Earth orbits the Sun, but you've given no reason to your belief, which is why you're getting called an idiot. So, why do you think the Sun orbits the earth, if your answer to this is "I don't know", I strongly suggest researching things before making opinions. Its not just like "I think this dice will land on 4", theres actually strong evidence suggesting you're wrong.

Also, to Authorblues, I wouldn't go as far as saying all the physics laws have actually been proved. Sure, they're pretty much 100% likely to be correct, but theres always the slight chance that maybe
this God guy does exist, and he's tricked everyone into think all this physics stuff exists.

Anyway, the point I'm trying to make is that the only thing that can be proved is maths.

If i said to you, prove Gravity exists, you could say the force due to gravity is GMm/r^2. But thats njot a proof. If I asked you to prove that equation isd correct, you could get a massive vacuum, and do a few tests, but that still doesn't prove it. It proves the equation works for a few examples, but in order to actually prove that equation, you'd have to try every singly combinations of Masses with every single combination of radiuses, which is completely impossible.

However, if you said to me prove that sqrt(2) is irrational, or prove that a^2 + b^2 = c^2 in a right angled triangle, then I could prove that in a way that leaves no doubt in anyones mind.

Which concludes my argument that maths is better than physics.

ofcourse, at the same time our maths is built upon a set of axioms that are assumed to be true, and from which everything else is derived :)
