    I kind of wanted Forza 3 but I have Forza 2, which looks to my ig-nant eyes to be pretty much the same.

    They are pretty similar, I'm not gonna lie. Even some of the same tracks.

    But 3 is much deeper than 2. You can mess with every tiny little thing. And it looks better. Somehow they made the best looking racing game ever look even better.

    That seems...something.

    dishonest?

    offensive?

    yes, yes it was

    i was massively pissed off

    i basically radiated anger that was measurable with scientific instruments for like two days after it happened

    so, while this job selling AmEx cards is kinda shitty

    at least they are honest about it

    they made absolutely no pretensions that it is thankless work with an extremely high rejection rate and lacks income and job security

    but that's okay, for now, at least till i can get something real

    and since i have a very high chance to get a real job working in corporate sales, things should be fine

    it's just good to have back-up plans, is all

    Maybe it was just because of bad luck or something but I found Forza 3 much easier to get the hang of as far as the controls were concerned in comparison to Forza 2. I enjoyed the demo very much and if I knew more people who played it I would buy it sometime.

    They are leaning toward saying that my car is totaled. It's apparently pushed in all the way to the back seat.

    I am trying to decide if this is a good thing or bad thing.
    Most likely it's bad. The payout for a total is usually only 3/4ths the value of the car.

    BTW, this is a kick-ass awesomesauce article about rape. I'd make a thread about it but then it would become a rape thread and making a rape thread is a little like raping the forum.

    http://yesmeansyesblog.wordpress.com/2009/11/12/meet-the-predators/
    We need to revoke the rapists’ social license to operate. We need to stop asking, “why do we think he didn’t know she wasn’t consenting,” which is the first question now, really. First as a cultural matter — leaving the legal matter aside — we need to adopt the stance that sexual interaction ought to always be had in a state of affirmative consent by all participants; that anything else is aberrant.

    So I was thinking of getting Forza 3 and so I went into the G&T thread and started reading it. But it's left me puzzled when someone mentioned "unholy modifications" to a Veyron. I'm trying to figure out what mods you'd even make to that car short of maybe lightening it a little. It's not like you're gonna strap a third engine in that bad boy.

    alg_conan_bugatti-veyron-mouse.jpg

    In poor taste perhaps but we haven't gotten near unholy yet.

    Fill it with nitromethanol and hope it doesn't explode.

    In all seriousness it's pretty much always possible to extract more peak power from an engine by throwing more and more forced induction at it. The difficulty is getting it to run reliably and getting a usable power curve.

    If the frame got bent, you're fucked and its not worth the cost to repair it. Also if your car was worth 4k anyways, outside of minor repairs it was a good chance they were going to write it off.

    Retail outlets pull bullshit like this all the time. I once interviewed for a computer sales position at Circuit City and they tried to funnel me into the music department.

    yeah, that is just a thing retail does

    i was just really, really disappointed about it because i was really excited about that job and then they were like "oh actually you are just going to be another stockboy lolz" and i was like "yeah, no thank you"

    sales and marketing are my thing, man. they are things i am skilled at. i am not going to do stockroom work, it's not that it's beneath me it's that it is not the right job for me

    the job with tigerdirect is corporate sales and marketing. i'd be selling computer hardware to corporations, designing marketing approaches, and dealing with ongoing corporate account management.

    it's basically an ideal job for me. i am pretty much made to be a heartless suit.
