    You should know that you just shouldn't go to the ocean.

    Problem solved. Now all you have to worry about is global warming, terrorism, and the global economic recession.

    You don't know if you'd rather have several horrible minutes of no breathing before you go unconscious, or experience the unparalelled agony of being on fire until you either go unconscious from sheer pain or your body ceases functioning?

    in a house fire or something you usually go unconscious from the smoke first, so that could help

    i don't know if i want to spend 3 minutes, at the bottom of a vast, dark body of water, alone while everything slowly fades to black, my lungs burning as i involuntarily inhale water, or if i want to spend 3 minutes running around, trying to scream but inhaling only flames, comforted perhaps to some degree by the crowd that has doubtless formed around me to watch my final moments

    someone on these forums somewhere said the other day that you actually inhale a very small amount of water in drowning because you have a reflex to shut off your lungs in case you manage to get back out of the water, so most of the water goes into your stomach and you asphyxiate like you would getting choked.



    I also think fear of the sea is kind of like why people buy lottery tickets: you have a tiny chance of winning, but the reward if you do win is huge. You've got a pretty small chance to drown, but the thought of it is terrible enough to make a lot of people not want to go there.

    When you put it that way, it's like I've been winning the lottery all of my life!

    You make me feel better about being extra po' for years and years.

    the co-op absolutely made that game. I think one of the PA podcasts specifically mentions this but the Halo singleplayer is a game I would have never played, but the co-op has produced some of the most fun moments in gaming for me.

    Yeah, I'm pretty sure that Bungie couldn't do a good SP campaign to save their life. The multiplayer is the tits though.

    I liked Halo's story

    I know there was basically nothing particularly unique about it but I just loved watching events unfold

    plus all the little hints and secrets about the Forerunner culture were really fun to ponder over

    the ocean is only scary if you're not used to it
    if you understand the ocean, you have a good sense of what not to do and realize that most of the shit people are afraid of will usually ignore you or is extremely improbable for you to encounter, if not outright mythological

    dru

    I have had survival training, marine biology classes, and been on the ocean for extended lengths of time

    I know what goes on down there

    I know how to avoid many problems and understand it very well

    I am fucking terrified of the ocean

    absolutely fucking terrified

    sometimes, fear is not rational

    anyone who thinks that is themselves stupid

    though admittedly not as stupid as some of the fans of halo

    like when you're playing 2v2 and the other two guys literally just find exploits in the map and hide there after they kill you once for the entire fucking round so instead of winning by being the first team to 25, they win by being fucking pussies

    Putting a headset on while playing Halo is probably the worst thing you can do.
