Da Rulez

1. Spam. For the purposes of RB, one word posts are generally considered spam. Likewise, posts that are nothing but *actions like this* are also be considered spam. Remember that the quality of the post's content is much better than the speed of your response.

2. This isn't the Play by Post or Town forum, nor is it the Silly Message Board Games or Structured Games forum. Please avoid continuous roleplay or mock battles and fights such as the "competition for control of the universe".

3. If it's already a thread, don't bring it to RB. RB has such a huge range of subject matter even restricted to the little snippets that probably don't warrant their own thread, it doesn't need legitimate thread topics cluttering it up as well. The exception to this is to bring something that is off-topic from one thread, but on-topic for RB and the subject doesn't warrant a thread of its own.

4. Don't advertise other threads in RB. Just because these new threads move at speeds more appropriate to a message board than an IM session doesn't mean you need to come over to RB and brow beat people into posting in your latest brainchild.

5. Please don't post single line posts alerting us to your current status -- as in "I'm back." This is Random Banter, not "How to stalk Random GitP forum members."

6. Don't poke, kick or bump the thread. It will move at whatever pace it wants to. Also, please refrain from Captain Obvious comments akin to "My, the thread is fast today."

7. Random Banter can only be as good, or as entertaining, as you make it. Demands to be entertained will fall on deaf ears unless you can add something more meaningful to the conversation.

8. As this is a public forum, where the current topic is nicely recorded for you, and not a conversation where you could have missed the beginning, please refrain from asking something to the effect of "What's the topic?". Please take the time to read up a bit first.

9. Thread Creator must include the words "Random" and "Banter" as well as the thread #. Try to be concise as well.

10. Every post should contain two visible, legible complete sentences, Subject and Predicate. C'mon, make your old English teachers proud.

11. Remember, Random Banter is not your IM client. If you want to have a back and forth discussion with just one person, look in their contact information for IM details.

12. Whenever a new thread is created, all "first post", "first page", and all posts of that nature will be deleted by the administrators. Please avoid doing this, as it is frustrating for them to deal with one-lined posts like this.

13. Double-posting is not your friend. We have edit buttons for a reason.


And here, linked for your convenience, are the previous incarnations of this thread.

Waaaaaaaaah. history test in twenty minuuuuuuutes. >.<

I should feel good, because only half my classes *have* big tests, but I still hate it. We have to memorize a bunch of places on a map and be able to correctly label said map; my father is a geographer, and when I told him about this, he went off on a rant about how useless map memorization is. Made me feel better, anyway. :smallamused:

You remind of the babe.
What babe?
The babe with the power.
What power?
The power of the Voodoo!
Who do?
You do.
Do what?
Remind me of the babe.

I saw my baby, cryin' hard as babe could cry.
What could I do?
My baby's love had gone, and left my baby blue.
Nobody knew!

I should feel good, because only half my classes *have* big tests, but I still hate it. We have to memorize a bunch of places on a map and be able to correctly label said map; my father is a geographer, and when I told him about this, he went off on a rant about how useless map memorization is.

My Sub-Saharan Anthropology course began with a map test. It was necessary--to establish how little everyone knew about the area. (I did well on that test, but that being the semester in which I quietly cracked, I didn't manage to learn anything during the course. Advantage: folk who started ignorant but left with learning.)

I don't actually like Sarah though. Given the choice between one of my siblings and Bowie, and let me quote some lines here:
"Look Sarah, look what I'm offering you: Your dreams.
"I ask for so little, just let me rule you, and you will have everything. ust fear me, love me, do as I say, I will be your slave."
Now, do I want the Goblin King Bowie in his most scandalously tight trousers yet being my slave, or do I want to go back my normalcy and babysit my siblings?

There once were sharks about that big. They wouldn't have wasted their time eating humans, unless there were a lot of us, out in the deeper waters, and there were no whales around.

Carcharodon Megalodon...

Just be glad those things aren't still out there somewhere. (We, you know... assume. We're pretty sure. But, you never know...)

They're bigger than most of our vehicles and could sink the Titanic easy, and gobble up all the stupid people inside who went out in a giant boat to a place where giant freaking sharks live.

Today the girls I sit with and I were singing the chorus together and we decided that if we didn't know the answers to any of the questions on our test we would just write down the lyrics to the song. :smalltongue:

Oh, an this poem is part of an assignment where I have to analyse a partner's favourite song choice in detail and find rhetorical devices in the song and it has a visual component and blah blah blah blah I hate it with a passion.

The poem can be about "your partner, your partner's song choice, the meaning of the song, your experience with the project" or anything else tangentially related, basically. And the only restrictions I can see are "12 lines, no haikus, no limericks".

Oh, and I can be quite good at fake sentimentality/meaning when I want to be - I call it "Brain Barf", because its like I upchuck the most philosophical parts of my brain onto the page and reword it to make it look nice.

the day we become the best is the day where we control the planet itself, everything in it, and every aspect of it.

and while perhaps the technology of weather control, and perhaps even time control (longer days? I sure as hell am game for that) may exist, we still have to find out IF they do, and then HOW to whip Nature at her own game, which is HIGHLY unlikely.

well, there are apparently animals that have "terrirtory" that we don't dare venture into (except for those who either have balls of steel or brains of highschoolers idiots), we don't have the guts to cope with extreme temperatures like other animals do, the oceans are merely blockades that we have to travel over in some kind of artificial device (again, with a few exceptions. there are a few balls-out people worthy of being called awesome).

think... we have trouble "living" outside of our cozy little shelters. even the "homeless" people still live in the human shelters we know as cities.

all other animals are tough enough to adapt, or they die out. we're the only ones pansy enough to try and change things to siut our needs...

and considering how much of the world is still vast, open land, I say we have a long way to go.

V'icternus
2009-09-29, 12:17 AM
We still mould the world to our design when it suits us to make those "shelters". We're still the only ones who do that.

The only reason we need to do that, is, of course, the aforementioned lame-assness of the Human body. I mean, even the fastest human wont outrun an angry Big Cat, and the strongest human will still be crushed by a Gorilla, and not even Crocodiles mess with Hippos, so we sure as hell wont.

But, we can solve all these problems if we decide we don't care about these creatures lives, and we pull out our fancy "guns", and "shoot" them, so they're "dead".

We're the best, but our bodies are lame, and not very fun. (Unless you like having all that extra Dexterity that we've got...)

that's too contradictory to be legitimate.

think of the world as a fighting game where humans are a character with all sorts of cool psychic and magic tricks that can kill almost any other "character"[species] in one or two moves with the right techniques.

the downside is, is that "character" can only take about 1 or two hits himself, from any of the other "characters", while the rest are much more versatile, and can last longer, but are not quite as powerful in terms of "Magic" [technology]

would you call that character "the best"?

I would hope not.

But, we can solve all these problems if we decide we don't care about these creatures lives, and we pull out our fancy "guns", and "shoot" them, so they're "dead".Again, the only currency you seem to respect is killing. Why is that? It's not even very important. Nature respects survival and habitat. We occupy a fricken' tiny proportion of Earth's habitat (which is more three-dimensional than we like to think, and includes mostly ocean), and we haven't been around very long at all.

There are also more of us than there are of them, spread over more area, with better technology and a mental inclination to help other members of our race (when we have a common enemy, that is).

So enter into your calculations the fact that, if that one human is killed, at least six more open fire at the same time.

You know, if they had a reason to fight together.

Also, we have our defense mechanisms, our ability to outsmart our opponents, etc, etc, etc.

like Pryan said. the only thing you seem to be focused on is killing. Nature isn't about killing, it's about survival and reproduction.

"more of us than there are of them?"

open your mind, boy... what the heck are you talking about?
we've been pwned by INSECTS. when they infest a house, we move out, because those "exterminators" don't usually ever get them completely out.

and I believe that animals have their own defense mechanisms as well. ours don't always work, is the problem, just like theirs don't always work.

...Insects, we can best physically. It's not even hard...

And yes, if you kill better than everything else, you win, because there's nothing to kill you, because you kill it.

And as for survival, we manage that pretty well, too. That's why we build walls to keep out tigers, get guns to kill elephants and make magazines to get rid of all bu the toughest of bugs.

so looks like we HAVEN'T mastered the world yet...

yeah, you can smack a few flies that come into your house. ever faced a swarm of them though? sure you can smack around and pretend you know what you're doing, but their advantage is in the numbers that you said we had over most creatures, which we don't.

and this is just insects, mind you. We still have the deserts, tundras, and oceans to master. look at your own country. looks like we humans haven't decided to "change the land to fit our needs" almost anywhere but the coasts. Why? because we wouldn't last 4.15 hours out there (except for, of course, the few elite badasses that we all know of)

unless you take classes and such on the subject, human survival skills are actually pretty skanky at best.

and the funny thing is, is if animals left their habitats, do you think humans would just suddenly start living in them?

and yet look at the opposite end of the spectrum. if we decided to completely desert a city, how many hours do you think it would go uninhabited before animals started creeping in?

and of course plants. are. everywhere.

and they don't even MOVE.

man, I could go on for hours here... and I don't know why.

Again, we have poisons to kill everything that only we can survive, we have the smarts to kill all these things that are an apperant threat. We can defend ourselves in our territory, and if we run out of territory, we'll go get some more! It's called Land Development.

We're nowhere near perfect, duh. Physically, we suck, but can beat most thing smaller than us. But we've made things to allow us to kill even the toughest of things that would dare attack us where we live.

We're winning the war for survival, simply by scaring off anything that would hutn us with our loud guns, cars, bombs and rap artists.


But that's nowhere near the point I'm trying to make! Just because we're the best, doesn't mean I wanna be one!

So what if we're winning, and are likely to win? We're not having enough fun! I wanna fly! Or be a giant lizard! Or stalk the near endless seas, killing stupid tasty Humans!

Everything else is cooler than us. We're the geeks of the Animal Kingdom. We're the smartest, and we rule the place, but we're not cool!

Now Lions, they're cool. They sit around all day, chill out, kill things. That's cool.

Komodo Dragons are cool. They're huge!

Being a snake'd be weird, but awesome.

Crocodile? Silent stalker of the Billabong? Hell yeah!

Anything that can fly is awesome on that merit alone. I mean, flying!

Of course, I'm biased towards flying... I've been a sky-boy since I was four.

Frankly, if it weren't for all the technology, and specifically the internet, fast planes, TV and refrigerators, I wouldn't see any appeal in being human at all.

After all, intelligence rarely leads to happiness...

And I wanna be happy!

...Maybe I could mutate myself as a flying, super lizard thing of awesomeness, and become... "Something-guy!"

atl;adr. you took long enough.

[almost too long; almost didn't read, in case anyone was wondering. :smallwink: ]

the thing I fail to see from your "logic" really is HOW we are "the best" when there are so many "restrictions" on things we do, owing to something or something else, done by nature.

I mean, hell, even our efforts to keep pests out of our "lands" don't seem to be working. if we can't even do that, then we can't be the best that no one ever was.

to tame beasts is our real tests, to rule them is our cause...

^: Aside from the heavy-handed biblical smackdowns on the part of the crazy animal gods, the pokemon thing really doesn't seem that bad.

Other than the fact that psychopaths try to mug little kids by beating up their pets with their own pets.

Well, it's sort of like doing the programming behind sawmill scanners. You have to be smart enough to do it.

And dumb enough to want to do it.

And that's pretty much how it is with sapience.

It has its perks though, at least, on occasion.

I fail to see how something so contradictory can be true. that's the real issue here.

he consistently says "we're the suckiest species in the world, but the best."

I'm not sure if it's like this where he lives, but here in the states, that's called an oxymoron, or a contradicting statement.

and therefore, it's either one or the other, and we've already scientifically proven that as pink bags of skin with no claws, fangs, wings, etc. we don't seem very high on the tier list.

but I've been wrong before. not THIS wrong though.

EDIT: and yes. I did notice a few similarites when I thought of Pokemon. it must be because I'm playing a ROM of leafGreen and I just hacked myself a shiny CELEBI. :smalltongue:
