Replying here as I am afraid OP will not see otherwise:
Depending on availability, try going for the giant house-spider (video here). They are the fastest species compared to their size, while being big enough to induce arachnophobia in most people. Also, if you are doing this indoors, be sure to get a lot of male spiders; this time of their year is their mating season, and thus male spiders will be seen crawling around the house looking for partners, making the spiders more visible to the victim. If you want to keep the prank going, buy female spiders so they can reproduce for a new batch for next year.
Reid here! Thanks for posting! The support from the reddit community never ceases to amaze me. One of you even wrote an original musical piece for part 3 - A Reassuring Fable.
Look for part 5 to come out soon. If you want more updates on my projects (including this recent short film of my Vancouver riot footage), you can join the facebook page @ facebook.com/thesaganseries
wow guys i'm sure Peter King is being taken way out of context. let's go back and look at Peter King's positions in the past...
oh nevermind. turns out he's basically just Satan.
I didn't realize this was stolen when I posted this.
The author's video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HNMq8XS4LhE (Thanks Izzi11)
Make sure you give them a view, they're pretty entertaining.
So for a generic sound of dubstep with a hilarious video:
But getting a little more serious... I am far far far from an expert in dubstep, but I love this dubstep cover of California Dreamin:
For some dubstep that is much easier to get into, try Burial:
Sand that is used to make glass is different from beach sand. A special mix of purified sand is used instead. Its mostly silica sand, which is made from quartz (one of the most common rocks on earth). You can see how very pure quartz crystals are similar to glass. The sand on the beach is mostly silica, but doesnt come from clear quartz crystal, and if you melted that sand down, it wouldn't be very clear at all.
Here's a cool video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NVKcISj2LfA
Edit: Glass created in nature is called Fulgurite and is caused when lightning strikes the sand. It looks like this.
That super colorful mountain of God-praising paint was in a movie. I think it was Into the Wild. Did anyone else recognize it?
Edit: here it is
The pleasure derived from watching that hunter getting attacked by that leopard is not necessarily about the morality of killing. It has to do with the fact that he was attacked by a creature he was antagonizing and he suffered a consequence. I have never been attacked by a leopard because I choose not to antagonize them. It's kinda like watching this guy get hit by an ice cream truck. Can't feel sorry for either guy really because they were both responsible for the consequenses.
TL;DR Mullet face had it coming. Not because he's evil, but because he asked for it.
DS9: Sisko's monologue from the end of In The Pale Moonlight.
"I lied. I cheated. I bribed a man to cover the crimes of other men. I am an accessory to murder. But the most damning thing of all; I think I can live with it."
Gives me chills every time.
"Computer; delete Gene Rodenberry's entire vision of utopia."
Pretty much how I felt after watching this video, too. That kid can move his feet in ways I will never, ever be able to.
Seriously, check that kid out. He's fucking incredible. Also, it got me turned on to swinghouse.
I got locked out of my flat for two nights while the landlord was out of town. I ordered one of these and it worked!
BravoJade linked to this video, which tells us the woman was filming the truck because it was driving aggressively earlier. Also, I would think that not saying anything during an accident is pretty common. I've been in an accident before and I was so shocked and focused on trying to maintain control of the vehicle that I found I was actually holding my breath for some reason.
That's because there's actually a psychologist who does comedy as a side gig. The reason why he's so good at comedy is this he uses his knowledge of human psychology to make jokes as funny as possible. He's actually one of my childhood idols. Anyway, there's a link to a video explaining that when you say something but do another, the joke is at least three times funnier. Here's the video. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0
As was Ray Charles' What'd I Say.
They finished their set and had time left to fill, so Ray Charles busted out on that, making it up as he went along and the whole band followed .

The following is my election manifesto. Vote for me at the upcoming FIFA election and I'll get you into the squad of a Champions League team:
Skins (home) vs shirts (away), every game.
If a cup final is drawn at 90mins, the game will be decided by a game of crab football
If a player dives, the next game he has to wear speedos and goggles.
Both sets of players line up at the start of the game, and the team captains pick their teams. The fat kid is picked last, no exception.
In the Tour de France the rider with the lowest time at the end of each day wears a yellow jersey the next day. I'd make the team bottom of the table play in yellow. If they are at home (see my skins v shirts comment), they have to paint their chests.
Rush goalie for all cup games.
If a football manager says controversial comments, at the half time of their next match they must bend over and the opposition team get to kick balls at their exposed ass.
20% of a club's ticket revenue must go towards providing proper half-time snacks, including the best Bovril money can buy.
The phrases "goals change games", "they both went for the same ball" and "it's a game of two halves" are banned for being mindblowingly obvious.
If a footballer can do a very entertaining impression of another nationality (like Manuel from Fawlty Towers), he's allowed to play for that country.
At the World Cup, the first substitution of each game for each team must be a 'veteran'. Want to take off Rooney? Peter Beardsley comes on. Cassano off? Ravanelli on. Obafami Martins getting tired? You'd better have Daniel Amokachi on the bench...
That's the clearest one in the video, but you can get glimpses throughout the entire video. I've seen porn clips on youtube before, but every time the user's account would be deleted an hour or so later.
the bullet ant bite is also used in initiation into adulthood rituals. the ants are weaved into special gloves, and the initiate is stung for 10 min at a time. here is a video.
Yeah, I'm sure it's not an accident that there was a video camera that was already aimed at the instigators of the whole thing.
Plus you can see the "pointer" secretly looking over his left shoulder before "accidentally" whipping his hand around to the right and hitting the girl in the face.
Their buddy just got to record a different kind of pwnage than they expected.
Edit: found the video -- Apparently the two guys get up and try to follow the puncher to get him afterwards -- you can't see what happens because trees are in the way, but you can hear the girlfriend calling him off again a few times, so I don't think it went well for the punchees.
No, this is the K Cooling Tower at Savannah River Site in Aiken, SC. I should know, having once worked there.
Here is a video of the implosion that matches the gif OP posted.
Kucinich is the man! A very good speech. Honesty like this in Washington is very rare. Why isn't this guy the #1 democrat!?
Something else said by another honest Washington politician in the last 24 hours:
> The argument is that we need more consumer spending, and I suggested to them, This money didn't go to the consumers, it went to the big banks and then to the corporations, and it went to the military industrial complex if we had taken that $5 trillion dollars, it would come around to $17,000 per individual. So if they really believed in this philosophy that "oh, if the consumer would only have the money and spend it" of course that wouldn't be good policy either, but I was trying to point out that they were not serving the interests of the average person, they are serving the interests of bailing out some friends on wall street by us buying up those bad assets and the middle class and poor really get dumped on because they are the ones that have lost their jobs".
-- Ron Paul at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SI50WMP3uoE&feature=related
P.S. I always love how DK stares down the room after he comes out on the attack. It's gangsta! :P
It's a handgun. Tazers have a much wider front face and its clearly not pepper spray unless he has a pistol-shaped canister.
In terms of how he has the weapon trained on the occupants of the car, this guy clearly isn't thinking logically. He's just staring at them and pointing a weapon in their faces. He's not issuing commands. He hasn't placed himself in a safe position. And if you listen to the video (when the cameraman actually shuts the fuck up) you can hear someone yelling that they have a gun.
At 1:06 you see a bike cop point, start screaming at the top of his lungs, and the cameraman starts hustling out of there. It's probably the same idiot cop. He's just some glorified parking lot security officer who is all hopped up on adrenaline from feeling like a real cop for five minutes and decides to take advantage of the opportunity to get some Dirty Harry action of his own. He's a piece of shit and isn't fit to serve in such a position of authority.
No. If you listen from about 12:00-12:06 you hear him say "Nate, we gotta go help dude." Then something I can't understand. But it seemed to me they were worried about how to help.
Ninja edit: I think this is the first time it really hit them that lots of people were dying.
Song of the South is actually on Youtube. It is broken up into about 10 parts and the resolution sucks, but it's there. I watched it with my kids several months ago.
That's all I got. It's truly a rare breed. I was going to include Sarah Palin and that Christine O'donnell woman, but they're just more stupid than truly vicious cunts. I'm not a huge fan of the word so I reserve it for special occasions.
In regards to #3, I think the documentary you're thinking of is this episode of the Vice Guide to Travel.
It's pretty sweet, and is on Netflix Instant. In Canada, anyway.
After reading your comment I watched the video again more closely. We can catch a brief glimpse of one of the barriers you describe at about 1 minute 23 seconds in. Thank you for your comment as it greatly puts this video in perspective.
John Lynch I submit for your viewing pleasure. Hardest hitting safety of all time.
Another montage where he knocks out his own brother in law. Ruthless.
I wouldn't say Burial is easier to get into. It's too subtle for a lot of people. I fucking love Moth by him and Four Tet, but it's the kind of song I can see a lot of people missing the point on.
Edit: If you want some real dubstep to get into, Virtual Boy is some hot shit right now. Check out Lost Treasure
Here you go.
Not the best video in the world, but the guy shows you the wrong technique first and shows why it is bad and how it damages the cable, then he shows you the right way to do it.
Pro-tip: it's difficult to use the proper technique on a cable once it has already been irreversibly damaged. Practice the proper technique on a brand new cable instead.
Apologies. Nothing like some Chopin to help you sleep, right? Maybe Scarlatti? Or this youtube video has almost 8 hours of vacuum sounds (always helps me).
I made a model rocket which went Mach 1.6.
It had an onboard GPS and specialist rocket telemetry device.
The GPS does indeed drop out at such speeds.
Here's a video. It breaks the sound barrier around two seconds after launch, although you here the 'boom' around four seconds in as it takes a couple of second for the sound of the boom to reach the ground. The rocket is around a kilometer up when it breaks the sound barrier.
You can hear it better on this video although the camerawork is pretty shoddy.
The rest of the video is of a small rocket event I host at my house each year with friends & family.
If you're worried about us standing too close, no need... we have protection.
I was messing around with an entity that follows you around in the game, and just got it working so I decided to make a video of it.
The cube is supposed to emulate what happens in this video. I think I managed to capture it pretty well, of course adding sounds would make it better though.
The game is supposed to have a creepy vibe and this is the beginnings of that. I'd like to know if you thought it was a little creepy, and if not, what ruined it for you?
tl;dr Gimme feedback, was it even a little creepy?
Hi just wiresharked myself on https://www.youtube.com, here are my conclusions:
The entire traffic is encrypted except for the following:
search suggestions: when you start typing in the search bar of youtube, every new character entered results in a request to: http://suggestqueries.google.com/complete/search?<WHAT_YOU_ARE_TYPING>&blablabla. Theses requests are sent in the clear. You should try disabling suggestions (if possible).
the FLV itself: the content of the video you are watching is downloaded in the clear, this means that it is indeed possible to see what you are currently watching.
So, in theory, they can see what you searched for and what you looked at, but they cannot see anything related to your youtube profile (username/friends/etc) and they cannot see if you upvote/downvote a video, or if you comment on something.
Whether vacating the square is justified or not, the amount of violence that is used by the police is certainly not. Have a look at those videos:
My dad hated that I listened to NIN growing up until I showed him the Hurt video, proving to him Johnny Cash covered them, not the other way around. He didn't believe me previously.
He also thought the NOFX I was constantly playing was complete shit until I played a few piano covers for him. After I told him who the original artist was he admitted there were some good songs in there that he didn't previously appreciate.
It's the FOV (Field of View). Here is an explanation if you care to watch.
Basically it's a setting that controls the degree of sight you have from the first person perspective. Some people's brains really trip out when it's not set right for you and can make you feel sick.
Unfortunately lots of games make it a pain in the ass to change so google the title of the game + FOV to find out how other people have done it in any games that are giving you issues.
Hope that helps :)
It's from a pretty old Belgian comedy series, fake documentary/reality tv I think is the best way to describe the series.
This bit is about a TV host that says his bosses wanted him off tv so he explains it's all a conspiracy where they put him in the room with these people with extremely weird voices (because of surgeries gone wrong). On top of that they're saying really weird stuff like "it's also annoying, because, during sex for example, it's also about the kind words" which makes the tv host laugh uncontrollably and lose his job.
edit: quickly took a look and there's an english subtitled version if you're really interested.
I would recommend watching both of these videos. Combined, the run time is around 14 minutes, but it is definitely one of the quickest ways to familiarize yourself with GW2. Considering you are at work, they may need to wait until later.
Honestly, all of his videos are great. With regards to your questions, as others have said, there are no dedicated tanks or healers in the game. Guardians are the closest thing the game has to healers, though through support abilities rather than raw healing. Guardians are also formidable damage dealers. Which role you play is determined through your choice of weapons. A guardian can have 2 sets of weapons equipped to switch between during combat to quickly change the role they are playing if the situation demands it.
Regarding ranged attacks, all professions in the game are capable of attacking at range. I believe ArenaNet's goal is to leave the option of melee, ranged, or both up to the player. For instance, Thiefs can wield daggers and swords or they can opt to equip pistols. Each profession has a similar option.
Edit: I also forgot to include that while the release date is still not announced, ArenaNet has said that Closed Beta will definitely start before the end of the year.

there's your problem. states rights apply to issues not specifically delineated by the constitution. there's a right to bear arms in the constitution; there's no right to abortion
but that's the historian's fallacy and appeal to authority, either way. the problem is life vs property (woman's body). which is why i recommend evictionism
I'm not sure what I think of this meme, either. I doubt we'll see it more than once or twice. At the same time, homophobia can actually be pretty funny. In fact, any phobia can be amusing.
Also, obligatory Monty Python sketch somewhat involving homophobia:
The wonderful thing about freedom of speech (even though we have no such constitutional right in Australia, beyond an "implied" right to freedom of political speech) is that shitheads like Jim Wallace are free to reveal to the world just what shitheads they are.
Maybe if he opened his gob in public more often, senior Government figures would be more reluctant to have any contact with him.
One can but dream...
I know what you mean but I'm telling you that a lot of people understand it in a different way. It's the same with every word that gains a symbolic meaning. Just like saying "nigger" might not be meant as a negative thing and a lot of black people would actually joke about it, for others it will always be problematic. Personally, I think that people should try to understand what the person who uses a certain word means by it - but this is not how it works.
I'd strongly recommend this poem; it's 7 minutes long; you might understand what I mean better.
Firstly, stop crying. Your parents are wrong, but they are wrong in such a way that they think they are right. Understand that they think they are right and that their treatment of you is also what they think is right. You won't, in my opinion, come to an agreement on this matter.
That being the case, I encourage you to find a way to agree to disagree with your parents. Show them this blog or this video and go over it with them. Tell them they don't have to agree with you, or argue the point with you, but that you are explaining why you feel as you do. Also express that you understand why they feel as they do (hopefully this is the case) but on this matter, you simply do not agree with them.
Certain scenes from Angel Beats
Now and Then, Here and There
Hughes and Nina from both FMAs
First episode of Michiko to Hatchin was pretty damn heavy
If I remember correctly, the ending of Wolf's Rains was big.
Anytime this was playing in Yu Yu Hakusho.
Ano Hana, obviously
Also, Elfin Lied and Clannad are low tier.
Edit: Episode 25 of Gurren Lagann
I'll counter with the moment Michael realizes that Mary is dead.
The frozen face stretched with agony, Micheal unable to express his feelings, his silence. Then a horrible scream. This is the moment Michael looks back at all he's been through, through his youth with his father and brothers, and his adulthood with his wife and kids. He sees that everything that took so long to build, after so many sacrifices, suddenly crumbles before his very eyes. He lost it all with the loss of Mary. Cut to him dying in Italy, old and alone, unlike when his father died who was surrounded by loving family. He never gets over her death. She was the last thing holding together his notion of having a family.
edit: Here's a link to the scene. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QyaDlIirJnw
I will admit, spiders really aren't that great of a gotcha. Part of what's so funny is that people will overreact to pictures. There was actually an interesting study by a psychologist who, thanks to his knowledge of psychology, was also an excellent comedian. After monitoring activity in the brain after the patients were "exposed" to certain jokes, he saw that when you said one thing but did another, a joke could be at least twice as funny (depending on the context, of course).
There's an interesting 3 1/2 minute video on it if you're curious. This guy basically inspired the first novelty accounts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oHg5SJYRHA0

How about a video game where you're the president of the united states fighting evil in a giant robot?

pretty sure YouTube doesn't use RTMP. Seeing as you can easily download all its videos using HTTP.
As an example, see https://www.youtube.com/get_video_info?&video_id=6NvDev-5qP4&ps=default&eurl=&gl=US&hl=en
It'll be served as an octet-stream but it's just text. Unescape it and it'll have links to download the video.
Getting filmed breaking international war treaties didn't seem to matter for the guys on the "WikiLeaks Apache helicopter attack video" when they opened fire on the wounded Reuters cameraman and the good samaritan and his kids that were helping him.
Their english is a little choppy, but the message certainly comes across loud and clear!

Nope. Putting it in the pseudo-"ironic" style doesn't divorce you from the sexism. That's not satirizing sexism -- it's just doing it.
This guy's videos are extremely good and explain how different voting systems encourage certain outcomes. This one explains how the standard voting system almost inevitably leads to an unshakable two-party dominance.
My favourite cover of tubthumping is by Angus & Julia Stone. I don't know how well they're known outside of Australia, but they're a brother & sister folk duo.
No there aren't. That's the problem in Chicago - there is no place you can legally stay for 24 hours a day, effectively cutting off protesters' ability to protest around the clock. We got this footage last week of Occupy Chicago protesters marching to the 2nd Ward Alderman asking for rights to stay in the park so they can effectively protest.
Respectfully, I would disagree and say wait until the game is released.
Your hands and weapon should not (I say should because I havent played it) be rendered on your HUD. The rendering precedence that you talk about (to avoid clipping with world-objects) doesn't flatten these objects onto your hud. Instead they render them separately in most games, or use a fixed perspective.
I'm not saying that we cannot see our kills in first person (although in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PjqsYzBrP-M at 1:31 and 1:42 you can see first person kills) but with it being a pre-canned animation there's no reason they CAN'T have them. They know exactly how much volume is required for an animation and can avoid allowing animations that will clip anything.
Again, I dont KNOW this. I only do programming as a hobby but if >I< could do it, and if Bethesda has moved away from the restrictions imparted by their older engines, there's no reason they shouldn't be able to. Even if you don't think a hobbyist could do it, you could look at Dark Messiah or Zeno Clash for other examples of it working on an engine that gives your first person objects (weapons, hands and so on) rendering precedence.
Also, I would just like to note this down. If everyone would have listened to security researchers like Moxie Marlinspike, Jacob Appelbaum, as well as a few others, they would have seen this coming.
Here's a video worth watching about SSL: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z7Wl2FW2TcA

Her name is Vica Kerekes and she is one of the most beautiful women I've ever seen
EDIT: This video is kind of fucked up, but my thesis is that she's pretty.
Although this isn't incredibly relevant: to be fair, we're all capable of creating "false memories" regardless of age. Video. I wish I could find the full video of the story though.
The dash-cam footage destroys this woman's credibility.
But I think the cop took it too far from a humanity standpoint, but was within the bounds of procedure it seems. Sad the two rarely match up.
Hey MA - i just found this *Subreddit and i really like it. Heres a small contribution from me- Also a video of Michael Jai White talking about his training. and an article about punching power/telegraphing one's strikes
Figured MMA is focused on the UFC and r/boxing is kinda empty and focused on boxing as sport not as a self-defense method/ martial art.
One thing that's always bothered me about this piece, in the second valse at 1:27 roughly, Ravel introduces an absolutely beautiful melody, then NEVER GOES BACK TO IT. Its my favourite passage of the whole piece and it only lasts like 3 seconds. I wrote my own waltz based on that melody just because it annoyed me so much.
Actually if you go to the original video you can see her commentary. She was trying to tape the flatbed "driving aggressively". In my opinion though it was her and the truck's fault for traveling in the passing lane. Also, I don't think she would have caught the in the windshield had she been further than half a second behind the truck in front of her.
They did a fantastic job, and honestly the refreshing humor would give me another reason to support them if I wasn't already inclined to.
Though I have to confess when I originally clicked this I was almost expecting to see the IT Crowd one had made it onto a real DVD:
If for any strange reason I am ever responsible for putting out a movie, I would really like to include that as the warning.

Although it's not eInk, the Nook Color is great for what it is. Small, light, powerful and with a decent screen all for $250. My experience with pdf's and eInk tends to be a bit of a bad one. The Kindle, while having the ability to zoom and fit to screen, suffers from the slow drawing time and bad experience of having to use the keyboard (see: this video for a demo). With the Nook Color, android + multitouch makes it a lot easier to interact with.

How to be alone (yt vid)
"You're no less intriguing a person when you're eating solo dessert to cleaning the whipped cream from the dish with your finger. In fact some people at full tables will wish they were where you were."
There's this YouTube video of a call-in radio show that was interviewing Kent Hovind. A geneticist called in, wanting to know the applications of Intelligent Design. Kent struggled to answer, and this is when I realized something. Religion wasn't just holding back science by teaching something unscientific, it was teaching something anti-scientific.
So, indeed, what are some modern-day applications of the Bible. It kept people from eating pork before we knew how to cook it properly. What have they got for us today? Or even in the last twenty years?
Probably not, making a Si solar cell needs a whole industrial supply chain...
I could probably fashion solar hot water heaters (like you see on some roofs) out of copper pipes and a wood enclosure. Maybe take some mesh type C-band TV satellite dishes and make a solar cooker out of them, like this:
edit: when the zombie apocalypse comes, I know where the warehouses full of solar stuff are, ready to be looted. :)
The ending of Sneakers (1992) gets me every time. When Cosmo (Ben Kingsley) cries out to Marty (Robert Redford), "I don't expect other people to understand this, but I do expect you to understand this!" it just hits something deep within me. All the other conflicts of the film melt away when Cosmo lays bare his true motivations. For three acts we've seen Marty maneuver through a world of shifting allegiances, of ex-KGB spies turned allies, of ex-loves rekindled. Even Cosmo recognizes it in his diatribe on the changing nature of conflict ("It's all about the information!"). But for all his talk about change, Cosmo's downfall is his inability to grow. That's what kills me. For decades, Cosmo has imagined this reunion, anticipated winning Marty's respect and loyalty once more. But Cosmo's hopes (indeed, his entire ideology) are predicated on a world which no longer exists. In that moment, Cosmo, choking back tears, is basically telling Marty, "I love you." Marty is telling him, "You loved the person I was then." It's devastating. Every time.
Yeah, David Friedman has brought up the concept of Conflict Resolution Agencies in his 73 book The Machinery of Freedom (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Machinery_of_Freedom). I'm not sure if he was the first to come up with it though. David elaborates in this talk (1 of 3) on YT: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yXWFWIM8OCI.
Chomsky responds to a similar question here.
The short answer: Even if we grant the assumption that workers' material conditions have gotten better over the last several decades, that wouldn't justify the current economic system any more than the fact that the material conditions of American slaves improved from the 18th to the 19th century justified slavery.
You just need to use the wadsworth constant with youtube, don't need to link to a particular time anymore.
Using a wind turbine to collect energy when there is no prevailing wind is guaranteed to be inefficient, as the only source of energy is the car's engine. You'd have to violate the 1st law of thermodynamics to achieve additional energy output.
But, if there's a prevailing wind, you can harness that.
In fact, not only can you harness it, some pretty cool folks have built a wind-powered vehicle that travels <em>faster than the wind!</em> (Warning: loud video alert) It can't go anywhere without a prevailing wind, but if the wind can get it started, then the wheels harness the energy from being turned and use it to power a propeller for extra power output.
> We know the first and easiest criticism that the enemies of OWS will have is that its representatives and participants are incoherent, rabid or misinformed.
Anyone who takes those criticisms seriously should have a look at
Jesse LaGreca on ABC's This Week , where he's questioned by George Will (probably the most informed, articulate, and not-crazy-sounding conservative pundit alive today) and does quite well. I'd go so far as to say that he comes off as a good deal more coherent and informed than any of the Tea Party leadership, much less the Republican candidates for national office that the Tea Party has campaigned for.
I realize that OWS shouldn't use the Tea Party as a yardstick (particularly since most Americans have come to see the Tea Party as buffoons), but hell, at least the OWS people correctly spell the wording on their signs. Credit where due. Some people are going to see only what they want to see, and outlets like Fox News, Weekly Standard, National Review, etc., are going to criticize regardless. If they had a Noam Chomsky as a leader, they'd be called eggheads, or if they somehow reincarnated Teddy Roosevelt, they'd be cast as clownishly brash.

Extraordinary mix. I listened to it like 100 times
Edit: DnB I prefer nowadays.. basically anything with Jazz/soul influence. You can only listen to an amen break so many times before you want something more you know. Absolutely none of the new stuff. Basically stuff like this
The songs on the album range around a bit in tone; "Barton Hollow" is probably the hardest-driving track. "Poison & Wine" is a good example of a track that goes in the other direction.
It's a great album, you should buy it immediately.
No, it absolutely can't be derived from a "natural standpoint." Are you familiar with the Bonobos? I have a hilarious (and probably NSFW) educational video on exactly what is natural in our closest genetic relatives. In a nutshell, life among the Bonobos is an anything-goes orifice-aganza. Nature has most definitely not determined that Tab A can only go into Slot B, and only for procreative purposes.
But here's another point on which the "natural" argument falls apart, anyway: Do you have any idea how many unnatural things you've done since waking up this morning? Let's count them:
And so on, and so on. That could have been all within 20 minutes or so.
But you don't really mean "natural" and "unnatural" in this sense, of course. By "natural" you really mean "not icky." There is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that a homosexual population isn't completely natural, but there's plenty of evidence some straight people find it icky.
Some context. Two years ago a cop was filmed fatally shooting a man in the back; as the victim lay on the ground restrained by another officer. Search youtube for Oscar Grant for many many videos. He's out of jail this week; a free man.
And this :
Have you tried polesforyou.com? Not only is it a central European dating site, but you can also buy tent pole replacements there!
I don't know if they can match the color, however.
Mint is a web app from Intuit (the company that makes TurboTax and QuickBooks). Here's a quick look at what you can do - it lacks some of the more powerful projection tools, but it's amazing for tracking current spending habits. There are apps for iOS and Android as well.
I'll see your logical and informed reply, and raise you the person in the front row with a "No Women's Equality" sign at 0:57 ಠ_ಠ
This commercial for trident gum claims the gum is so delicious that people would be willing to use it as currency, with a babysitter saying "of course you can pay me in gum!", followed by a chimney-sweeper showing up in the fireplace claiming he'd be insane not to accept gum as money, followed by other people wanting to get paid with gum.
At the end, an asian construction worker in a cherry-picker says sadly "No-one ever pays me in gum..."
>The Republicans went after Clinton for lying about sex with an intern and they're now letting this one slide?
They let Obama slide with violation of the War Powers Act. Watch this and you'll know why they won't impeach Obama under anything war related.
IMO it is just people excepting the gender normative roles as defined by our society. People then approach things filtered through those defined roles creating certain expectations. Now if you go into a situation with an expectation you will not like something, there is a good chance you won't.
RTB here is Dan Ariely illustrating my point
this video provides a thorough rebuttal, including a look at the scientific findings that craig quotes although the papers don't actually support the point he tries to prove with them
The hook in Porter Robinson's Unison has been stuck in my head for the past month or so.
Miami 2 Ibiza by Swedish House Mafia is, of course, insanely catchy.
I agree with you about Undertaker, though.
Also, here's a link to the episode (480P) everypony can use until this pops up on youtube:
Early downloadable 480P version
Edit: Youtube HD version is up!

I see you're Muslim, maybe this video will help answer your question. It's a Muslim student asking Ravi Zacharias (Christian apologist) about Christianity and the law.
This is just proposing newspeak. If you allow words to change their meaning based on political agenda, all words degenerate into either "us" or "them", and honest discussion becomes impossible.

A Very Long Engagement, directed by the same guy as Amélie is good too, although I still much prefer the latter.
Have you seen her ad for Chanel? It's the definition of classy ;) How I fucking envy the guy.
Not quite sure how to format this, so it'll just be <Song+Link> - <Band Name>.
No Rain - Blind Melon. One of the best songs from the '90s, impossible not to enjoy. Not something most people know the title of, but they always remember it when they hear it.
No Children - the Mountain Goats. Probably this band's most popular song, certainly one of the most impressive "fuck you" songs I've ever heard.
All Of My Friends - Tally Hall. Pretty obscure song, by a pretty obscure indie band. One of my favorites of theirs; I can't help but think that a swing cover would be fantastic.
You are mistaken. Hitscan comes out of the face, projectiles do not.
Go look at the corner of a wall and fire. If they come out the centre, it would hit the wall, otherwise it would miss the wall. They originate from the viewmodel's position and approach the crosshair.
Edit: Quick comparison between normal RL and Quake RL.
First, check out a lecture by LFT called Elements of Chip Music. It's a great introduction. That should answer some of your questions.
Next, to make chiptune style music in Milkytracker, read the tutorials on their web-page and there are also a couple of tutorials on youtube. And finally: check out other peoples modules (mod, s3m, xm files, Milkytracker reads them all).
