    8 Great Mobster Movies That Fell Off a Truck

    Great choices, and it's nice seeing some recognition for Mean Streets and Casino; those two always seem to get overlooked. Scorsese might actually be my favourite director of all time, he's made some amazing movies.

    Microsoft Hints at Pre-Owned Fee For Xbox One Games

    With the current Xbox I may buy a game and play it and then my 2 brothers will play it. Does this mean that they have to pay when they want to play it? And what about borrowing and renting games? Will I have to pay when I borrow a game from a friend or rent a game from Blockbuster? Your losing...

    Favorite cast of characters

    That's a difficult one :/ I've seen too many movies to narrow it down to just one, but for a TV show I'm probably gonna have to go with LOST - Or perhaps these lovely people - Or maybe these chaps -

    Game series with the best music.

    Funny this thread popped up. I was just getting into the Far Cry 3 main theme.

    Opinions You Just Don't Understand

    The idea that gay marriage will somehow negatively effect straight marriage. I get the idea that you want to preserve the definition (I don't agree with it at all, in fact I've never agreed with it I just understand the feeling behind it), but the idea that it's part of a war on marriage or...

    Yes, actually. As long as you backed out of it faster than you would any other porn you don't want to watch. Helmholtz specifically framed this conversation in terms of public displays of affectiong ("making out"). For you to try to re-frame it in terms of explicit sex acts doesn't help...

    I didn't say it did. Please don't waste my time with arguments I didn't make.

    Opinions You Just Don't Understand

    People who think refusing to associate with someone over what they said violates their freedom of speech. Or in general people who go on about freedom of speech when the government's not involved at all. Or who mistake freedom of expression, a more broad idea I think, with some kind of right...

    Opinions You Just Don't Understand

    Luckily no one thinks that. Even the most strident gun-control advocate is okay with the police getting their guns legally. So what you don't understand is an opinion no one holds. Which is handy.

    Opinions You Just Don't Understand

    No one thinks homophobia is a psychological phobia, just like hydrophobia, xenophobia, and many other words that end in phobias. Trying to make this argument is nothing more than playing semantics to waste our time. Sorry, this is rubbish. Like most heterosexual men, there are loads of...

    Opinions You Just Don't Understand

    I struggle with left wing apologism, Big State nannying and quite a bit of the more saccharine strands of left wing thought, "white guilt", the endless march of "-isms" and all the left's attempts to homogenise thought and create one, single PC mindset base on whatever bland sanctimony that...

    Opinions You Just Don't Understand

    That doesn't matter to my argument, because we're still paying a ton of taxes for the ones who are. I find drug use inresponsible because people take an inherent and uncontrollable risk at ending up like that, and becoming a huge burden to society. It's comparable to driving drunk: It's not a...

    Opinions You Just Don't Understand

    Its not so much living as long as possible, as not spending your last 20 years dying in agonizing pain from smoking or obesity related diseases that puts me off the idea of smoking/being obese. Besides, I dont have little vices...*supersmug*

    I will never understand the opinions that smoking is fine from people that understand the health risks, or people that are OK with being obese. Both groups are knowingly cutting their life short by a substantial amount, but are apparently fine with it. What gives?

    How 343 fucked up the Halo franchise. It seemed impossible, but alas.
