I love the Power Glove. It's so bad.
Slashdot videos: Now with more Slashdot!
We've improved Slashdot's video section; now you can view our video interviews, product close-ups and site visits with all the usual Slashdot options to comment, share, etc. No more walled garden! It's a work in progress -- we hope you'll check it out (Learn more about the recent updates).
I am making three assumptions. The first is that the submitter is male. The second is that his significant other is female. The third is that they are human beings. My only real mistake is trying to have a conversation about relationships on
So your argument is that if she is ALSO a child they have a chance? Possibly. But somehow I doubt she's "into" trading her boyfriend moving 1000 miles away for some online video games unless she's just not that into him. Regardless of what she says, this will not be a substitute for the real thing.
This isn't going to work. You're living in a fantasy world. Long distance relationships are difficult (and not even really that fun). If you want it to succeed in the long term, you've got to make an effort. Talking about what games you're going to play together online is what children do and your relationship is therefore doomed.
See, the mere fact that you're moving 1000 miles away from her speaks VOLUMES to her (and to me) about what you really think of her. Video games? What the fuck are you thinking?
If you are serious about maintaining this relationship, don't spend your time playing video games with her. Spend that time at a second job and use the money to visit her and (this is also important) fly her out to see you. This will not only show her you are *serious* about your relationship, but that you're a good provider.
She's looking for a committed man. What you're showing her right now is an uncommitted child. I'm not saying that's what you ARE, I'm saying that's what you are SAYING you are. If that's not what you are, start saying something else. Actions > Words.

Or it will lead them to discover Episode I and they will finally understand why the Second Dark Ages occurred.
Don't I feel stupid. I was wondering what this word (seemingly from French) "ballache" meant. Then it dawned on me.
And if my dad posted to slashdot I'd check for pods in the basement.
It's okay, Og. Come out of the cave. It's warm out here.
I think you greatly underestimate how difficult it is to wage war on your own populace. Imagine Iraq, but with everyone armed, your own troops defecting, and every person you kill potentially related in some way to people who are on your side. Oh, and any infrastructure you destroy is your own.
Isn't it obvious?!
He has evidence:
1. The moon landing was faked.
2. The U.S. is complicit in the alien abduction of its citizens.
3. The U.S. is reverse engineering alien technology at area 51.
4. Bigfoot is real and a consultant for the DEA.
5. JFK was killed by Jimmy Hoffa and Elvis.
6. The U.S. is run by lizard people of which George W. Bush is one. (Also Morena Baccarin.)
7. Jimi Hendrix, Buddy Holly, and other supposedly dead musicians are alive, well, and immortal prisoners in an underwater city in the Atlantic for the rich and powerful.
8. (The truth about eight is too awful to print.)
9. Tater Tots are PEOPLE.
My odds of being struck by lighting while playing golf are also very rare these days. Doesn't make it a good idea.
So... It's a bad idea to play golf?
I think that means it's a bad idea to play golf indoors even if you've previously destroyed most of the lighting.
As someone who posts as AC on a regular basis out of laziness, I can safely say I'm just as willing to make a fool of myself with my pseudonym as I am as an AC. Your argument is flawed.
There are those who say life here began out there.
