    yep. cuz we'll all be living in an FFA PVP, full loot, sandobx then.

    *cracks knuckles and limbers up for the sandbox*

    No required quests! And if I decide I want to be an assassin-cartographer-dancer-pastry chef who lives only to stalk and kill interior decorators, then that's who I want to be, even if it takes me four years to max all the skills and everyone else thinks I'm freaking nuts. -Madimorga-

    I've got my Fallout skills honed to perfection. Bring on Armageddon.

    EA CEO John Riccitiello's on future microtransactions: "When you are six hours into playing Battlefield and you run out of ammo in your clip, and we ask you for a dollar to reload, you're really not very price sensitive at that point in time...We're not gouging, but we're charging."

    really sick of "the end of the world" media hype bs. if you actually researched the mayan calendar then you would feel like a fool for saying that.
  • anemoanemo Posts: 761Member Uncommon
    You do realize the mayan calendar was 3 circles, and the mayans celebrated years closer to cycles of repetition rather than start and end like gregorian calenders.

    Practice doesn't make perfect, practice makes permanent.

    It amazes that there are people in the world that actually believe this stuff, e.g., charging up their credit cards, etc.

    Why on earth would anyone put faith in a race of humans that used to cut the hearts out of their own to appease some sun entity for rain etc.

    I'm sure a lot of the "hardcore" PvPers will be sad as well.  I'm not sure they will do as well in a REAL LIFE, FFA PvP, full loot sandbox as they might in a video game.

    Keep that same shoot first ask questions later mentality. We're completely numb to violence now anyhow.

    End of the World hype has nothing to do with Mayan calendar except using the end  of the 12 b'ak'tun, as advertisment.

    Nowhere in all of written and preserved forms of text or picture or anything  else Mayan(avaiable to the public and open to viewing on internet and books), is the end of long cycle presented as an end of something, on the contrary it's cause of celebration, its a new begining, day something magnificent and unique happens.

    Best example of this is Timeline Zero, which predicted the "Event" a few days before the 21st December, but it's maker pushed it to coincide with the 21st December, for exposure(educated guess from meself).

    I don't "believe" in any of the predictions, nor do I have faith that anything will happen, however i do HOPE we get some Alienz finally (public world-wide exposure) xD 

    Technology is progressing too slowly, need to speed things up :(

    Some people say technology is evolving too fast and presenting problems, i say it's not evolving fast enough.

    Also to everyone responsible for C*ckblocking Tesla's inventions, SHAME ON YOU, you're lame, you're all lame, freaking lamers, all these freaking wires are NOT COOL !

    There is actually a finite fixed expiry date on our sun. One day there really will be an end of the "world" regardless of us being here or not.

    I know there will be an end-date one day. Rev.

    and you realize the procession of the zodiacs does not give a crap about any of our calendars? it's a predictable cycle of celestial bodies. think on that.

    human sacrifice was in the last era of the mayans before they disappeared. it's not uncommon for a society to go crazy on the brink of their destruction. look at the world today, for more atrocious things going on.

     The Mayans are a very gifted and prophetic people thats why they were able to fortell the end of the world hundreds of years in advance, and why they did so well vs the spanish and are doing so well today (lottery winnings and all) Oh wait.... NM

    Being in technology for the past 20 years, I completely agree with this statement.  What we are doing with technology today are based on the same principles and standards that were created in the 60s.   We are just able to process the information (read: present) the information faster.  If you didnt grow up with it, I can see it being overwhelming today.

    I see it as the stuff we did in our parents basements has just turned mainstream.  I was texting back in 1989 ;-)

    Ever since i started actually using me brain, and thinking logically, my IQ has miraculously doubled.

    Oh and btw don't spread this prophetic words of wisdom, MENSA will go bankrupt.

    Exactly :), So many revolutionary ideas from genius people, and they all somehow dissapear into thin air, never to see the light of day for wide-spread public use.

    In the rare case they don't, it takes ages for them to be integrated into the society.

    I mean come on, mainstream 3D-printers already, just stop making Big Brother, and other reality shows, and u can basically use that money to give away 3D printers and wireless chargers to people for free !. ( not to mention thatprobably less then 1% of a yearly income of all money from the  "developed world" would probably fix all third world country food, water, shelter and hygiene problems for a decade or two, ...)

    I mean just look at graphic cards and processors, every new manufacturing process is less of a upgrade than a previous one, why not just skip a year or two ahead, heck skip silicon all together and go straight for carbon nanotubes, why advance       from 32nm to 5nm in a span of 10 years, that's just dumb. Graphics have been on hold basically from 2007 thx to consoles,  so if they can skip 5 freaking years, why can't Intel and AMD skip a few years and not release stuff, and just go straight to picometers :(
