Alright, I guess this counts as a Forum game or something, but whatever. Kinda philosophical thinky thing.

The scenario is this: You're on a quest and a challenge lies ahead. There are two people, and you must kill one of them to progress. The problem is that one of them always tells the truth, and the other one always lies. You are allowed to ask one and only one question to them, and both will answer it. You can also only kill the one, not the other.

You must think up a question to get you past this.

There is a right and a wrong choice. Kill the wrong one and you fail, kill the correct one, and you pass. Your question has to be able to solve it. If you can use a question I didn't think of that adequately gives you an answer, then I'd consider that correct.

This may sound simple, and in a way it is, but it's not very easy. I can also assure you that the information present is enough to get you through this. Please make your decision carefully, and good luck.

Glad to be posting a little again, even if the site is "dead".

Hello there, TitiActury and welcome to Fig Hunter and such! As Hyphero pointed out, grammar is a good thing, but most people these days are a lot more relaxed than they used to be, so it's really not a problem. Your grammar will gradually improve over time, it's expected to be rough at first.^_^

Pseudo is currently remaking the MARDEK games, and likely many of his other games, however I don't think he'll make versions in other languages. It would be difficult and, unless he hires a translator, I don't think that he could actually translate things himself. It would be good if he were more popular, but for now I think it's most practical that he stick with English.

Anyway, welcome to Fig Hunter, be sure to check out the rules and have fun here!

It is a problem that we have when people spread hate speech, however in this country free speech isn't unlimited. A classic example of this is that you're not allowed to scream "fire!" in a crowded theatre if there is no fire. You're also not allowed to actually spread lies as statistics, though the punishment for that is never really set.

The one thing that really upsets me is our obsession with censorship. In America a woman is treated as obscene for breast-feeding her baby in public, but you can watch people get their heads blown off on TV. Nudity is totally forbidden.

The oddest thing about hiding and shame is that a woman can wear a bikini and no one bats an eye, but if she's in her underwear it's suddenly shameful, even if the underwear hides far more than the bikini? It's odd, but I find it kinda interesting.

Also, no swearing on TV, for some reason. I like swearing. I think swearing should become so normal that it's no longer offensive.

What do you mean my the legalization being tight to a vote? If you're saying it was a "close call" because it was 5 to 4, that's not really the thing.

Y'see, in the current U.S. the republicans and democrats, the two political parties in control of virtually everything, are more divided and strongly opposed to each other than the patriots and the loyalists were in our revolution.(Brief history for anyone who may not know: When the British colonies that were to become the United States tried to rebel for independence from Britain, the people that wanted to become independent were called "patriots" and the ones who wanted to remain with Britain were called "loyalists". At times these took extreme forms when the loyalists might sell out patriots to the British, or the patriots might brutally murder the entire families of any loyalists.)

Our supreme court, which made the decision, has 5 democrats and 4 republicans at the moment. It's very very rare for a democrat to vote conservative on anything, and likewise it's rare for a republican to vote liberal on anything. In fact, if a democrat proposes something, a republican will likely not even bother seeing what it is without simply saying "No!" and vice versa. Our political system is extremely divided like that. Since there's usually close to the same number of democrats to republicans, rare compromises are usually the only way to get things done. That being said, there tends to be a slight majority of one over the other, which is always the case in the odd-numbered supreme court.

So really it wasn't a close vote, it was an expected outcome.

I hear that a lot, actually. People in other countries don't like our free speech thing. I guess I like it because I'm a cynical arse who loves to say cruel things when someone is also being an arse. You feel defenseless and you pen up your rage if you can't tell people what you want to tell them. At least, that's how it always felt for me.

If you censor something, people will want to see/say/do it. America's free speech is really "let people say whatever they want, there's nothing to hide. The lack of taboo means that there's less excitement to doing something wrong, so fewer people do it. Those that do are frowned upon by other people, who also have free speech." Rather than the law governing what you can say, other people do it.

One thing's for sure, we're a fairly relaxed and laid back peoples.

Actually discussing hentai on a serious note is something I tend to avoid, for the most part. Don't get me wrong, I've had some discussions on it, but it's not exactly my biggest forte.

Hentai's not a bad topic! >:3 Like Takoyaki in Shokugeki no Souma.("Shokugeki no Souma" is the Japanese title of "Food Wars", but in all honesty, it would be better to translate it as "Food Porn" on many levels.)

I think that with the law changing, society will speed up in accepting homosexuality. The whole phobia/taboo of homosexuality is because it goes against the ways of [x system], so as religious organizations and nations allow it, then it's no longer so taboo, and the fear gradually dies off. I also have high hopes for Pope Francis and what he can do.

Also it wouldn't be the first thing the US was more liberal than Germany on. We still have perhaps the most outspoken population of any country. We have that free speech, which means if someone wants to be a Nazi here, we can do so without legal reprimand. We can hang a party banner from our front porch and while people will surely get angry, we have the right to do it. It's not always pretty, but it's also not always terrible. Free speech can allow for people to be cruel to homosexuals or people of other races, but free speech can also allow people to show disdain for war. Really, free speech is what ended the war in Vietnam.

Good point, it would have been better had each state agreed to it in due time, however, it was suppressing rights in the meantime. It's sorta like a catch-22: You want the people to have the rights, but the state also should have rights.

The thing that disappoints me is that whole "we won't get to see which state is most homophobic" thing.

Ack! My bad, *our. :P

I'm just saying, I live in PA, there are few places in the world, and nowhere in the country, I'd rather live, or even want to spend more than a few weeks at. As such, moving to cali to get pot is out of the question, and I don't even want prostitutes. Prostitutes are like gay marriage to me: I don't want it personally, but other people do, and I think it will resolve more problems than it creates to make it legal.

Also I'm not sure I'd smoke pot. I'd just like to see it legalized so we can save money from sending pot smokers to jail. Invest it in *our* education system.

Marriage is now legal in the United States! We don't need to make a distinction between gay and straight marriage anymore!

I'm kinda ticked off Fig isn't having discussions about this right now! RAINBOWS ARE SHOOTING OUT OF FACEBOOK LIKE LAZER BEAMS! Isn't everyone happy right now? Things are awesome!

Next we need to actually do something about the racism and violence in our country, then we need to legalize pot and prostitution, then we should be golden.

Of course, there are still people trying to block healthcare, but they got shot down once again the other day. We still have healthcare, pitiful though it may be.

Also, we seriously need to work on out education.

As for this site, I'm going to be trying to reactivate this site a bit.

PLEASE COMMENT SOME STUFF HERE, PEOPLE! I don't care if you want to talk about hentai, just get some activity up here. I have some threads I want to start, but I need more active people for them to really work.
Forum: HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Wells thanks for bringing it up Chinchilla, now I agonizingly look at how little I've done with my life in the past few months! XD

For my resolutions: I lost the election for the anime club president to a freshmen with no experience, nearly lost the re-election to Vice President, but managed to hold my seat.

I gained about 10 lbs. Luckily, it *was* 15 lbs., but I seem to be losing weight again, so that's a plus.

At this point not only have I still not had a girlfriend, but I also have lost interest in trying, thanks to my brother's nasty b!£€# that drove him so suicide... So yeah, I'm more distrusting of relationships now. I won't refuse them, but I honestly don't think I'll even try for a while.

The only goal I've done any good with was watching more anime. I finished Naruto(1st series.) and I'm a good way into Shippuden, I watched Shigatsu wa Kimi no Uso, loved it, watched a few other things, got started on some more. Oh yeah, I also watched Cowboy Bebop. Pretty awesome anime. I was holding off on it because I wanted to savour it, just like how I've held off on Railgun and a bunch of OVAs.

Anyway, so far this year kinda really sucks a lot.

Oh, and I'm super not-buff. I suck at keeping goals.
