[2014-4-16. : 8:41 pm]  Azrael -- There are any number of reasons for the general populace to not be complacent, but the puppetmasters in the government and media work the strings to ensure those reasons are never acted upon meaningfully.
[2014-4-16. : 8:40 pm]  jjf28 -- The common people pray for rain, health, and a summer that will never end, as long as they have that they don't care what games the high lords play
[2014-4-16. : 8:38 pm]  Azrael -- But that doesn't pay for the party's future election campaigns, so fuck that noise.
[2014-4-16. : 8:37 pm]  Azrael -- So a large portion of households would receive two checks.
[2014-4-16. : 8:36 pm]  Azrael -- Not household. Homeowner.
[2014-4-16. : 8:36 pm]  Azrael -- They redistributed so much taxpayer money that they could have instead mailed a $100,000 check to every homeowner.
[2014-4-16. : 8:36 pm]  Azrael -- "If the citizens won't give you their money voluntarily in exchange for your goods, then we'll force them to give you their money in exchange for nothing."
[2014-4-16. : 8:35 pm]  Azrael -- My favorite was when they "bailed out" select businesses, meaning some corporations who help fund presidential campaigns were using extremely poor business practices and facing financial difficulty as a result, because no one wanted to buy their stuff, so the government redistributed a vast amount of taxpayer money to these businesses just for existing.
[2014-4-16. : 8:34 pm]  Vrael -- SEE WUT I DID THAR!?!?
[2014-4-16. : 8:34 pm]  Vrael -- :D
[2014-4-16. : 8:34 pm]  Vrael -- you mean the Theatre of War?
[2014-4-16. : 8:34 pm]  Vrael -- millions a dollars a week on personal entertainment?
[2014-4-16. : 8:31 pm]  Azrael -- The government says they don't have enough money for X and Y while simultaneously paying out billions in wages for the people saying there's not enough money to do anything. The President has become akin to The King and spends millions of dollars a week on personal entertainment. The government puts laws in place to prevent normal people from acting against it, meanwhile ignoring those same laws whenever it's convenient for them. And those are only some of the mildest examples.
[2014-4-16. : 8:28 pm]  Azrael -- There are many good reasons.
[2014-4-16. : 7:37 pm]  Xlil-InfernoDDD -- "Lanthanide -- nothing is going to change in America until the public rise up and change it" There isn't a reason for the common folk to not be complacent.
[2014-4-16. : 6:25 pm]  Xlil-InfernoDDD -- Luckily WE aren't all arrogant/ignorant.
[2014-4-16. : 6:13 pm]  Wing Zero -- Nope thats right on the money
[2014-4-16. : 6:07 pm]  Azrael -- I can't speak for the views of any non-Americans, though :P
[2014-4-16. : 6:06 pm]  Azrael -- I feel comfortable saying that most Americans are arrogant and/or ignorant, though I also feel comfortable saying that about human beings in general, so I guess geographical location isn't an important part of my assertion.
[2014-4-16. : 4:23 pm]  Roy -- Funny how people outside the U.S. make sweeping generalizations about the arrogance and ignorance of Americans, and when demonstrably shown to be wrong, act like the Americans they're talking to are the exceptions to the rule.
[2014-4-16. : 4:04 pm]  Dem0n -- "Lanthanide -- yip, funny how a lot of American's are simply brainwashed into believing they live in the best country in the world, and any foreigners that tell them America isn't all it's cracked up to be are just "jealous"" I'm not sure where you're getting that from. I'm pretty sure we all know that America is retarded. Guess you've been consulting all the Americans down in New Zealand to get this information.
[2014-4-16. : 11:07 am]  Devourer -- give more dedication to your work
[2014-4-16. : 11:07 am]  Devourer -- lewl apos
[2014-4-16. : 11:04 am]  Arkane -- just one more thing before I can start doing the voice work for the mod!!
[2014-4-16. : 11:04 am]  Arkane -- oh yay!
[2014-4-16. : 7:21 am]  TF- -- top lel
[2014-4-16. : 6:44 am]  OP)Apos -- I'm ashamed
[2014-4-16. : 6:43 am]  OP)Apos -- Most shitty code I've ever produced in my life
[2014-4-16. : 6:43 am]  OP)Apos -- I finished coding a forum in asp. All done in less than 3 days
[2014-4-16. : 6:41 am]  Azrael -- "The government has been illegally tapping the phoneline of every citizen in the country, perhaps we should do something about-" "Sorry Congresswoman, we have to stop you right there. Now here's Justin Bieber!"
[2014-4-16. : 6:38 am]  Azrael -- Example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GH68bSJXGE8
[2014-4-16. : 6:38 am]  Azrael -- It's not like the populace even has a chance to get upset, let alone start rallying. They're always being distracted by the most asinine things.
[2014-4-16. : 6:38 am]  Lanthanide -- yip, funny how a lot of American's are simply brainwashed into believing they live in the best country in the world, and any foreigners that tell them America isn't all it's cracked up to be are just "jealous"
[2014-4-16. : 6:35 am]  Azrael -- side", **
[2014-4-16. : 6:35 am]  Azrael -- I thought perhaps it was a case of "the grass is greener on the other side, but being on the outside looking in makes it obvious how much worse it is than it already seemed.
[2014-4-16. : 6:33 am]  Azrael -- Although I moved to a different country, which is at least somewhat meaningful in conveying my dissatisfaction with the government.
[2014-4-16. : 6:31 am]  Azrael -- I know I did :P
[2014-4-16. : 6:31 am]  Azrael -- :(
[2014-4-16. : 6:31 am]  Lanthanide -- so rather than try and overthrow the area's government, they move
[2014-4-16. : 6:31 am]  Lanthanide -- and if someone really doesn't like living in a particular area, there's not much stopping them from moving
[2014-4-16. : 6:30 am]  Lanthanide -- coupled with that, because you're over such a large area, each particular area has its own particular concerns
[2014-4-16. : 6:30 am]  Azrael -- I think that's how all these eastern countries manage to have rebellions and riots going on all the time.
[2014-4-16. : 6:30 am]  Lanthanide -- yip
[2014-4-16. : 6:30 am]  Azrael -- I think our main issue is being spread over such a large area. It's a lot easier to get the necessary percentage of the population to cooperate when the total area that population is contained within is smaller.
[2014-4-16. : 6:29 am]  Lanthanide -- but yeah, I think you'd need in the order of 10% of the population actively rebelling before there was a chance of much happening
[2014-4-16. : 6:28 am]  Lanthanide -- so maybe the founding fathers were right after all
[2014-4-16. : 6:28 am]  Lanthanide -- well there are enough people with guns that you could form a well-regulated militia
[2014-4-16. : 6:28 am]  Azrael -- Unfortunately, the system is designed to ensure that we common folk cannot do much about it, lest we take up arms and rebel or something.
[2014-4-16. : 6:27 am]  Lanthanide -- peak oil and climate change will likely change that, though
[2014-4-16. : 6:26 am]  Lanthanide -- there doesn't seem to be much appetite for it
[2014-4-16. : 6:26 am]  Lanthanide -- nothing is going to change in America until the public rise up and change it
[2014-4-16. : 6:26 am]  Lanthanide -- I'm sure 'they' wouldn't
[2014-4-16. : 6:26 am]  Lanthanide -- *you* might like it
[2014-4-16. : 6:25 am]  Azrael -- I don't think they would, since "they" are the assholes sitting at the top lol.
[2014-4-16. : 6:23 am]  Lanthanide -- it
[2014-4-16. : 6:23 am]  Lanthanide -- you might like
[2014-4-16. : 6:23 am]  Lanthanide -- should try spreading democracy at home, first
[2014-4-16. : 6:23 am]  Lanthanide -- also saying things like "spreading democracy to other countries around the world"...
[2014-4-16. : 6:22 am]  Lanthanide -- so everyone who says stuff like "America is a democracy" and "greatest democracy on the planet" etc are factually incorrect
[2014-4-16. : 6:22 am]  Lanthanide -- well, it's proof
[2014-4-16. : 6:21 am]  Azrael -- They needed a study to figure that out? :P
[2014-4-16. : 6:12 am]  Lanthanide -- study finds out that America is an oligarchy, not a democracy: https://www.princeton.edu/~mgilens/Gilens%20homepage%20materials/Gilens%20and%20Page/Gilens%20and%20Page%202014-Testing%20Theories%203-7-14.pdf
[2014-4-16. : 5:53 am]  jjf28 -- nightz :cube:
[2014-4-16. : 5:22 am]  :DevliN: -- "Apos -- And now you're not famous" I have no desire to be famous.
[2014-4-16. : 5:17 am]  jjf28 -- cs theory - logical proofs of structures, concepts, functions etc (no programming)
[2014-4-16. : 5:04 am]  O)MasterJohnny -- I'm failing school
[2014-4-16. : 4:55 am]  sigsaucy -- what class was this testin?
[2014-4-16. : 4:27 am]  jjf28 -- ... who's lakai besides an awesome character from lunar legends?
[2014-4-16. : 4:22 am]  jjf28 -- I was quite disappointed to see an 81% on my test, come to find out the average was 61 and the class is curved :wob:
[2014-4-16. : 4:21 am]  Echo -- Lakai looked at my profile LOL
[2014-4-16. : 4:14 am]  Arkane -- yup. they count as men.
[2014-4-16. : 4:07 am]  Arkane -- gonna do a quick test
[2014-4-16. : 4:04 am]  jjf28 -- that's one of the things i want to but haven't yet documented -- which units count as what
[2014-4-16. : 4:00 am]  Arkane -- I was wondering if interceptors are counted as men since this would really make the trigger very wonky
[2014-4-16. : 3:59 am]  Arkane -- I have this trigger that causes the player to lose if he accumulates atleast 200 deaths
[2014-4-16. : 3:59 am]  Arkane -- do protoss interceptors count as "men"?
[2014-4-16. : 3:59 am]  Arkane -- ooh! a quick question!
[2014-4-16. : 3:53 am]  Wing Zero -- yup
[2014-4-16. : 3:44 am]  Arkane -- anynyan read GoT
[2014-4-16. : 3:40 am]  jjf28 -- he or she was getting stale, though that book scene was amazing :P
[2014-4-16. : 3:08 am]  Azrael -- :-(
[2014-4-16. : 3:07 am]  Azrael -- He or she will be deeply missed by me. RIP.
[2014-4-16. : 3:07 am]  Azrael -- @payne, I agree.
[2014-4-16. : 3:01 am]  Xlil-InfernoDDD -- Thanks Devlin.
[2014-4-16. : 3:00 am]  Arkane -- damn economy thanks obama
[2014-4-16. : 3:00 am]  Arkane -- a signature costs too much for me :A;
[2014-4-16. : 3:00 am]  Arkane -- ;A;
[2014-4-16. : 2:06 am]  Ahli -- (or better: was)
[2014-4-16. : 2:05 am]  Ahli -- I was only a week in alpha, but I'm level 20 :D

[2014-4-16. : 1:50 am]  OP)Apos -- Congrat
[2014-4-16. : 1:50 am]  OP)Apos -- And now you're not famous
[2014-4-16. : 1:45 am]  :DevliN: -- I almost wish I was motivated to keep playing past level 20. Sadly I was not. :(
[2014-4-15. : 11:53 pm]  Ahli -- http://us.battle.net/heroes/en/forum/topic/12505891049 LoveLess, you're famous ;D
[2014-4-15. : 11:38 pm]  Mini Moose 2707 -- :wob:
[2014-4-15. : 11:14 pm]  Xlil-InfernoDDD -- :payne:
[2014-4-15. : 9:25 pm]  payne -- let's pretend I didn't write a spoiler and set it as a possible *she*
[2014-4-15. : 9:25 pm]  payne -- Az, actually, I should be hoping for him to have stayed alive since he was a remarkably nice touch as an actor to this series.
[2014-4-15. : 9:23 pm]  payne -- :cube:
