It's a real pity that scientists can't be bothered to study the problem using the scientific method rather than using statistical measures that are bound to be flawed.

It's his own thing he made up called 'social autism'. He has a book called 'the irrational atheist' that you can download from his website where he talks about it, if you have some spare braincells you'll never get back.

...but if you're a Tardaholic like me, your boats come in..
That's my favorite quote of the month!  Now, that's a keeper!!!

I disagree on one point, Vox while a complete tool-bag, is very intelligent.  He does, however, lack the ability to interpret information without his religious biased.

Facts make sense to him except when they are contrary to his religious, emotional beliefs.  Then they are just complete lies.

P.S.  I love this pic...What a pretentious douche bag.



I bet this pic is a huge hit with all his Dungeons and Dragons buddies

Hey, what's wrong with DnD?

Granted 4th Edition sucks but 3.5 is great(*)!

Still gaming, after 30 years.....

(*)  The best RPG is still C&S.....

"Chivalry & Sorcery" Red Book, 1st Edition and the three book boxed set 2nd Edition.  A great, but very difficult system.

DnD (original books), AD&D (1st), AD&D (2nd), DnD 3 & 3.5 - still gaming.

Traveller, "This is Free Trader Beowulf.  Under atteck, losing atmoshpere" love that game.  Mega-Traveller almost killed my enjoyment of gaming.

Gamma World, TFT (The Fantasy Trip), Empire of the Petal Throne, Arduin Grimoire and more.

Not to mention Ogre, GeV, Car Wars, Nuclear War, you name it.

Too many AH games.

Yes, I am a N.E.R.D. and proud of it.

Tell me about it.

I got a 1st Ed. AD&D book for my daughter's 18th birthday (she games with my group).  Fortunately it was only $10.

I've just got my PS3 turned on to continue Fallout 3.  That is uber-kewl, especially when I blow some super-mutant up and have his head splatter apart in slow motion.

Yeah, I'm sick.

(But, yeah, I spent quite a bit to buy the boxed Runequest and Troll Pack, just for the memories, but maybe I'll get a game up too.  I still have my first edition champions books, a lot of my old D&D, and many of the games I mentioned.)

I'd forgotten about that one.  Hadn't played that one in longer than all of my students have been alive (but not all added together, that is).

I grew up on Panzer Leader, Starship Troopers, that Minarian Legends game...got to look that up, if I could remember the name...

Never did play Cosmic Encounter, but I heard that could be a bit on the intense side.

10-15 years ago I used to sell high performance networked PC's to a small groups of geophysicists in oil companies for <cough> *seismic interpretation software*. Each time we put in a new system out would come the latest Quake and we would have a BLAST FEST ...erm just to test the speed of the gear you understand.

Oxford:"The Great Oxford Game of the English Language"

One word: Runescape.

It's so bad, it's good. As MMPORGs go it is the shizzle IMO. Sadly I have....

{Does rough calculations, factoring in imminent baby, redecorating "office" as "nursery", working hard to get big promotion to pay for imminent baby, trying to get back to match fitness (and removing fat bastard status accumulated by combinations of injury, years of debauchery and sloth) again by handing my life over to a gym, doing extra work writing a book when I can (chemistry, don't get excited, it should be ready about 20 years after I die), fucking about on Teh Intarwebs (naughty, one of the guilty pleasures still allowed to me...although perhaps not for long) and sleeping (which I won't be doing for long either apparently)}

....minus four days a week to play it. Can we campaign for the 11 day week, 5 at work, 2 for the weekend 4 for MMPORGs? Will it fly?

And as with all these things it can get a bit repetitive and dull just clicking away and unlike real gaming, it's hardly social in the same way.

However, and I will say this, possibly to the consternation/outrage of many, the one problem I found with RPGaming is, erm, other gamers. There are a majority of utterly sad bastards out there in my experience, and gaming with morons never appealed. The few times I've found fun gamers have been great however, although it's >16 years now since I've gamed. Maybe in the USA, where it's more popular I understand, it's a better environment, but nowadays I'd rather be outdoors in the few moments I get, walking, swimming, something, ANYTHING rather than being cooped up again.

Oops diversion!

Does anyone here play MMORPGs? I've heard interesting things about WoW, but never played a game. I did have an old version of just plain Warcraft for my old Mac about...umm....some years ago (10 I think) and it was fun ish.

Everytime I go to Voxday's blog I die a little inside.

My advice: Don't go.

I've been avoiding the Alpha Fail, like all TARD that hasn't been at least filtered through someone else's brain, for a while.

I did read his "book" however.

I woke up in hospital having had a massive brain fart (proper medical term that). Apparently blood was gushing from my nose as I read each page and I had to be kept alive by infusions of blood and minced copies of useful philosophy books.

There comes a point when the TARD is simply too powerful for one person to encompass and they collapse into a TARDhole. This is what has happened to Vox Doofus. Dangerous to get close to. I suggest a dose of rationality, go read the Wikipedia entry on The Enlightenment. It usually brightens my day.

In the same register (although a bit under technicaly), but FREE, there is Rappelz.

I've played it for about 2 months last year, and it was aaaarrrggghh ("higlhy enjoyable", or "quick, more boiling oil", or "Your wife is a big hyppo").

I've had to put a stop to it for fear of my social life. But it's still really nice and entertaining, and one thing I liked with it is that there was a server with no PvP whatsoever, which greatly reduces one's need to buy a shotgun and get into IP-localisation lessons...

First, your pic doesn't show.

Second, I've heard somewhere that I need a wife in order to divorce. Should someone provide one to me, I'll make sure your prediction happens*.


*Really fast.

Ok, now I'm bleeding out my ears.  And not just from El Primo Tard, the prophet Teddy.  The commenters are similarly idiots.  Of course, we got the anti-vax, and the "why trust science when it changes all the time" - what else is there for morons to feed on.  

I forgot that, like a bunch of others, that Vox is supposed to be highly intelligent - didn't he claim Mensa membership?  If so, I'm not surprised - most of the people who go around claiming to be in Mensa are really disconnected from reality and really egotistical and arrogantly proclaim their own superiority.  Is this common, or is it the vocal minority that gets all the attention and most Mensa members are ok?

I joined Mensa at 16 years old and left at 16 and a bit years old. The "bit" was all it took me to figure out that I was paying a group of people to tell me how clever I was, and thus, they were more clever than me. In hindsight I shouldn't have been bloody stupid enough to join in the first place. I'll put it down to teenage insecurity and hormones.

I've taken various proper IQ tests since then and been happy with the results, but really it's just something to keep my hand in. Logic problems can be fun.....

....Oh fuck have I just confessed to logic problems being fun and liking an MMORPG? In one day! Pig's knackers!

I think I just outed myself as an uber geeky nerdlinger super spod. I swear blind this:



isn't me.

Promise. No really. Honest.

Louis

P.S. The few Mensa people I met were okay, but then I met about a dozen or so, nearly 20 years ago, so hardly anything to form a good judgement with.

P.P.S. I *am* better than everyone else, but not because I once joined Mensa. It's because my Mummy says so. Even better, Arden's Mummy says so too. And she should know.
