Vlog 30 : 7 vs. 1 asian

The next time you are about to  get into a physical fight with someone, think about what this guy says (well, the second part. the first part is all jokes)

Other Games / Practice landings in FSX
« on: January 02, 2012, 05:06:13 pm »
Does anyone know any short routes in FSX where I can take off and then practice landing (both ILS and manual landings)

I know that Snohomish County and Seattle - Tacoma International is 30 miles apart, but I've done this practice run so many times I want to try out other routes.

FSX players, do you have any suggestions?

Other Games / Trainz Content...

Hey guys, I was wondering whether Trainz 12 was compatible with any NYCTA content. Steam has it on sale now and before I burn $25 on it I was wondering whether any NYCT stuff would work...

I don't want Iran to make nuclear weapons, but I don't want any war erupting in the middle east. If Iran and Israel want to go at it, then everyone should just leave them alone IMHO

Off Topic / Should parents lose custody of their obese kids?
« on: November 06, 2011, 01:11:55 am »

I think that this is a very interesting question. In many ways, obese kids can blame their parents for everything. I remember as a 7 year old, I wanted McDonalds every day. I craved for it because it tasted so good. My parents never let me eat the food more then once a week, and I am glad they did that because I keep myself in shape now. These other parents that don't teach their kids about obesity, its almost like child abuse. You let them eat fast food all day without educating them and eventually its torture for them to live with it.

I have two kids aged 4 and 6, and they too love McDonalds, but I also limit their intake of fastfood, and I don't maintain a "clean your plate" policy because I don't want to force them to eat. I keep them up with vaccinations and I make sure they eat fruits, and teach them the three sports I loved to play as a kid (baseball, football and basketball) I think all parents should be like this to limit this obesity "epidemic". Also, George Bush was an idiot passing the "No Child Left Behind" act, because more and more schools are slashing phys. ed programs as well, along with the fake, frozen food they eat during lunch time.

Anyways, what is your take on this? I personally would support it.

General BVE/OpenBVE / BETA testing
« on: October 31, 2011, 05:55:57 pm »
I just have a thought I'd like to share.

With a bunch of new users asking in every route/train thread about BETA testing, this thought just popped in my head. In my opinion, some of these users don't care about testing, they just want to get the route/train earlier and not have to wait for the final thing. I think that testers should just be limited to trustworthy people, instead of a first come first serve basis. BETA testers should be people who can notice mistakes, notice errors, write out constructive criticism, etc. They should be people who know what needs to be fixed, who notice the little things, stuff like that. I think that some developers should be a little bit more selective on who they choose to BETA test their routes.

For example, someone who can notice ever little mistake, such as Simon, would be a better BETA tester then those who just signed up to ask for a BETA copy

Just a thought of mine. Constructive criticism for this idea is welcomed. And FYI to some of you, constructive criticism doesn't mean saying "it sucks" and then leaving.

Off Topic / Gruesome killing

http://news.nationalpost.com/2011/10/24/driver-charged-after-hit-and-run-death-of-chinese-toddler-report/

Absolutely pathetic. Being half white and half Chinese, honestly, I am ashamed to call myself Chinese. Every single person seen in the video (skip to 1:20). I am speaking to my own kind, and I have to say, are you fucking kidding me? Do you not have a soul? If I saw your child laying dying on the street, would you want me to call for help, or just walk past her like shes trash dumped on the side street? These people embarrassed China, and they embarrassed the Chinese people. All of them should be ashamed of themselves. How can you just walk past a dying toodler? Even thinking about it makes me want to sob. I am truly shocked that China is in a economic boom, yet the people there have absolutely no care for each other. I don't even feel like taking my planned vacation in August 2012 to go back to China. This has severely damaged the reputation of everyone there.

2-year-old female child ran over by car (twice!!), 18 passersby ignore her.

Except for the Good Samaritan, EVERYONE involved in this should be charged with manslaughter/second degree murder. The two drivers should be charged with first degree murder, with life sentences,  in my opinion. The witnesses should be fined and charged with involuntary manslaughter, IMHO

Off Topic / Kerner Commision
« on: October 03, 2011, 06:38:13 pm »
Hey, I'm not that great with history (never my best subject :P) and I was wondering whether any of you could give a in-depth summary of what the Kerner Commision's report was exactly about.

One of my friends gave me this outrageous piece of writing mentioning it, and I did some of my own research on the Kerner Commission report. I didn't get why it was mentioned because I couldn't see any connection between his writing and the report. Maybe one of you can give me a better summary on this?

Off Topic / Quick Food?
« on: September 17, 2011, 02:57:51 am »
My work involves a lot of quick work. Every afternoon, I come home, do paperwork, eat, do more work, review co worker's papers, do more work then nap. The eating part is what concerns me. I don't have time to go and make a big meal for myself. Everything for me is quick quick quick. Occasionally I can get a night off and make something healthy, but most nights now, if I'm hungry, I just stop by the deli to get a sandwich, pizza place for a slice of pizza or McD for a chicken selects meal. If not any of those then its a quick Cup Noodles meal and back to work. Occasionally I would just eat a few Nature Valley granola bars, but I don't always pack them.

I know this is extremely unhealthy. My doctor says I'm in very good shape for my age, and I don't want get out of shape and risk my health. I'd like you ask you guys whether you know about food that is quick and easy to make and healthy at the same time.

Off Topic / Mice
« on: August 13, 2011, 01:33:08 am »
Ok, so here is the biggest disadvantage for me living on the first floor of an apartment building. It doesn't take much frigging hard work for mice to somehow eat through walls.

Also, my pathetic excuse for a neighbor trash their place, partying up all night... I've gotten into multiple heated verbal arguments with them about noise, partying, the pests they bring over, and even when I was there I saw mice crawling out under their furniture. Those friggin mice must have gotten their way to my apartment as well. Who the hell doesn't keep their expensive ass apartment clean? Those pricks *sneers*

Who knows a good way to get rid of these idiotic mice? Traps don't work. I've looked for any possible holes that mice can go through and got a repair guy to plaster and paint them. My doors are way too small to crawl under. I'm still wondering how the frick these pests got in and how the frick to get rid of them. Anyone knows? Any possible exterminators here who can help?

Another thing - posion is not a viable option at this time because my friends come over some of the time and they sometimes bring children over and I don't want to harm them in any way

House Committee passes bill requiring your ISP to spy on every click and keystroke you make online and retain for 12 months
Posted by Cory Doctorow on Friday, Jul 29th at 8:12am

Yesterday, the House Judiciary Committee voted 19-10 for H.R. 1981, a data-retention bill that will require your ISP to spy on everything you do online and save records of it for 12 months. California Rep Zoe Lofgren, one of the Democrats who opposed the bill, called it a “data bank of every digital act by every American” that would “let us find out where every single American visited Web sites.” Here’s commentary from the Electronic Frontier Foundation, who’ve got a form for contacting your rep to ask her or him to kill this:

Quote
The data retention mandate in this bill would treat every Internet user like a criminal and threaten the online privacy and free speech rights of every American, as lawmakers on both sides of the aisle have recognized. Requiring Internet companies to redesign and reconfigure their systems to facilitate government surveillance of Americans’ expressive activities is simply un-American. Such a scheme would be as objectionable to our Founders as the requiring of licenses for printing presses or the banning of anonymous pamphlets. Today’s vote is therefore very disappointing, but we are especially thankful to GOP Representatives Sensenbrenner, Issa and Chaffetz, who chose principle over party-line in opposing this dangerous tech mandate. We hope that bipartisan opposition will grow as the bill makes its way to the House floor and more lawmakers are educated about this anti-privacy, anti-free speech, anti-innovation proposal.
