Default Finally, a reasoned rebuttal

An interesting artical that I came across this morning
http://gr.bolt.com/articles/violence/violence.htm

It is a gift, a gift to the foes of media falsehoods. Give gamers the weapon of the enemy, let us use it against them!
(Magical brownies for identifying the movie I paraphrased that from )

It's Fellowship, now gimme my brownies. And they better be your mum's brownies. Or caramel squares. I'd go to war for her caramel squares xD

An excellent find, my friend.

*Gives unto Raiyven the boon of Magical Brownies, that they may be a meal for him in dark places, when all other meals are eaten*

You need to be more specific to get *real* brownies. Or caramel squares. But too late, the last ship for the un-hungering lands has sailed, good-bye

On topic, I'm thinking of pulling a copy of the artical on to my hard drive, in case it gets pulled off the web.

*cough* "article" *cough*


SiFi: One bite of these brownies can fill a grown man's stomach!
Gryphon: (aside to Raiyven): How many did you eat?
Raiyven: erm.. ...four... <BELCH>

lol to both counts. i have four stomachs, didnt you know? appetizers, dinner, dessert, and meat.

Sadly, the popular magazine 'The Economist' has a full front page of a kid playing with a console, with an eeeeeeeeeeeeeeevil look on his face, and the title is something akin to 'are video games making our kids evil?'. No.

We all play games, and we're not evil. Well. most of us. We all have our plots of domination. And if you think they're easy to execute, take a lesson from one Scratch Fury, genius cat: http://www.pvponline.com/archive.php3?archive=20050810

Nobody tosses a THZ!

Fine, not so much "artical" as personal essay

Are you equating me to legolas, gambit? Cause as a Gimli son of Gloin fan, I have to say that I'm insulted

That was in the *film*. Ignore it. Never happened

A real elf would know better than to steal a kill off a Dwarf.
