Re: Final Fantasy Omnithread - All FF, all the time.

Yea; I have not played a final fantasy title all the way through since FF7 and FFTA/FFTA2. Which is a shame because FF6 is what got me into story-based (j)RPG games. :( I see above some mentions of Brave New World. This is a good thing; FF6 always felt *broken* at times when I replayed it for the mi...

Re: Final Fantasy Omnithread - All FF, all the time.

Re: Making Public Threats Online

On a stretch - and even this would be absurd - I could see maybe checking into the kid based on his statement; see for example if he has the means, or has made similar statements in the past, etc. But to actually arrest him and charge him with a crime based on an obvious joke is ridiculous. Ah, thi...

Re: Making Public Threats Online

Regardless of how the statute is interpreted, it's unlikely that the Constitution allows for Baldwin's tweets to be treated as a threat. Constitutionally unprotected "true threats" are "those statements where the speaker means to communicate a serious expression of an intent to commi...

Re: Making Public Threats Online

Nah, he's obviously not communicating a threat to commit any crime of violence with intent to terrorize another. I realize that sounds ridiculous, but I mean that seriously. No one actually thinks Alec Baldwin is going to hunt down this guy and hurt him. Right? There was no threat to commit any cri...

Making Public Threats Online

This question came up on another forum, but the quality of the arguments were in question. So, I wanted to ask my new friends here the same question. As some of you may have been recently aware, Alec Baldwin made some disparaging remarks towards another , and insulted a (relatively new) community pe...

Re: What do you mean by consciousness?

Egging dangerously close to evolutionary psychology here. Babies do a lot of things because it is evolutionarily advantageous to do so. It is advantageous because learning, and practicing learning, is important, but that their mimicry also makes them more likely to be cared for by sympathetic paren...

Re: What do you mean by consciousness?

I agree that you can choose to condition yourself to like something, but if you are eating something that tastes horrible to you, you can't choose for it to instantly change to tasting good (unless you have greater control over your brain than I, and I assume most people, do). And I think the truth...

Re: What do you mean by consciousness?

Taste in food is purely a mixture of conditioning and instinct; I don't think anyone actually makes a conscious decision as to what they like to eat. I have made many conscious decisions that I like and want to eat delicious pizza with artichokes. :P (And I do mean that the way it sounds.) Yes I kn...

Re: What do you mean by consciousness?

Consider, meaning think about; even if it's multiple factors, if it is just a set of if..else statements in a deterministic instinct program then it's still just a reaction. I can't necessarily give you an answer to the cases given, because I'm not really familiar enough with it to say. Rule of thu...

Okay, you have me on Rory as he was around for more than one series. But Micky and Wilf weren't as popular as Jack or Rory. :)

Re: Sad songs

I'm honestly pretty surprised no one has mentioned any Portishead song ever. :) Western eyes, Sour Times, Roads, and Strangers directly come to mind. Massive Attack has some great ones; Unfinished Sympathy, Protection, Black Milk/Black Melt, and Live With Me directly come to mind as distinctively sa...

Re: What do you mean by consciousness?

Consciousness isn't easily defined by one definition or even one perspective. I Think anyone can agree on that. If we're looking for a medical perspective, even laying on that operating table we can plainly see with out eyes that using a scalpel can cause a bodily pain response. Opening flesh like t...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

You have a cool name. I can imagine a Doctor Who assistant called Cesario Rose (if it's not to similar to Rose Tyler). I too live near hills and water. Eh eh eh. Wouldn't that be a dream, though? But the (newer) Doctor(s) typically doesn't take on males as assistants. Except for of course Jack Hark...

Re: INTRO THREAD THE THIRD

Hi. I'm Cesario. Last name, Rose. I work in IT. I live somewhere in the Mid-East in the United States. Probably near some hills and I think there is a significant body of water not too far away. I like music and books. Occasionally I enjoy debates in Psychology and Ethics. But i'm a bit of a loner b...
