    How's it retarded? It's not selling, like... shoes to prevent you from falling off Earth when you visit Australia, or anything...

    How is that retarded?

    No, Sharper Image is in fact retarded.

    But how?

    I've never purchased anything from them. In fact I've never heard anything truly negative until now. At worst they sell unnecessary stuff, but that doesn't seem "retarded" to me.

    Right, it was meant as a contrast to "RTS".

    I guess I should have put "Or" at the beginning of the second sentence.

    I only just recently tried Civ 4 for the first time. I'd played C&C, Empire Earth, Rise of Nations. All of those types of games, but for no reason whatsoever I can think of, I just never played Civilization. It just never got to me, even though I was fully aware of its reputation as one of the best strategy games ever, if not the best.

    Without reading a manual, running a tutorial, or even playing the campaign, I jumped into a custom match to test it out. I figured my large prior strategy gaming experience would be enough to ease me into it.

    Long story short, Civ fucking confuses me.

    So far.

    Pink Floyd is overrated.

    Also, Pink Floyd fans are some of the most pretentious music snobs I've ever met.

    Your "overrated" claim depends entirely on your own experience. If people have been sacrificing virgins to Roger Waters, then I'd agree.

    Otherwise you can shut your mouth right now before I send you back to mother in a cardboard box.

    Yeah, I didn't have pirates in my system. But I did constantly have 3+ enemy cap ships for the first half of the game. :P

    I say overrated not because the music isn't as good as people say, because it is for the most part, but because Pink Floyd inspires such a ridiculously dedicated group of fans that deride pretty much any other artist ever in comparison to Pink Floyd.

    I mean, sure there are Pink Floyd fans who are just fine. But aside from classical music nerds, I've never encountered such a high percentage of pretentious douchebags among an artist's fans as I have with Pink Floyd fans.

    So yeah, I don't have a beef with the band so much as I'm annoyed by the fans.

    er, I meant on delay, not on time lapse, my bad

    the fact I have to click the button on the UI means I need to keep a hand on the mouse to take a picture, which at best looks really awkard (wireless mouse, clicking holding it behind my back or whatever)

    but I don't even have a wireless mouse

    It is sort of as though you just said that your large prior experience driving should prepare you for wakeboarding.

    Like

    Like those games do not prepare you for Civ even a little bit. Like, SimCity probably prepares you more. That's what prepared me, at least.
