What a hero man, im glad people out there still try to help in those situations. It sickens me when i hear a story about someone getting raped in the middle of public street or something crazy. I wish you the best!

Awsome post Jarett.

Immediately I re-read the headline and image caption, admittedly slightly panicked at the idea that I may have misinterpreted it and some Pure Pwnage fan had gone out and shot up a mall or something crazy that Jack Thompson would inevitably blame on my monitor humping adventures. Thankfully, the gamer in this case was the hero.

This is exactly what has been going on through the entire thread, and it's not the first time either.
You come to us for advice..you just spell out what you want to get, and then ask us if it is okay, and we have to explain why it isn't. That's the world upside down.. If you would just say 'hey guys, I have an X amount of money, what should I buy?' Then this would be over in 2-3 posts, not 2-3 pages.

Every time someone goes against Weiman's sig I feel like they should be bludgeoned for a few minutes in the head to feel the headache I feel when I realize someone really IS that dense.

Its the decisions you make, when you have no time to make them, that define who you are.

Really pretty spooky how that phrase proved itself.

I salute his bravery and hope that he will inspire others to follow his altruist ways.

And I'll also throw in a modified quote.
"To teh_man Adam, wherever he may be."

-Half-Life. Because zombies are better off dead.
-WTF has Half-Life got to do with Physics???
-You cannot kill the Free Man. (Well, you COULD kill him, but at least you couldn't zombify him. I hope.)

So agree ^^

Hey! nothing wrong with listening metal :0
Something wrong with RL-violence :0
Yes! a metal listening hippy ^^
and reggae, and ska, and hiphop, and.. well.. some dance now and then.. and quite much everything that is music.

Just as much as gamers arent people who shoot up schools and other people metal-heads aren't per definition ball-less people-shooters.
I think it's a bit wrong to assign people tags like that based on music preferences.
It's quite easy to talk like that about people who are seen by the general public as outcast and therefore treated like that icon_wink.gif

Exactly.

Stero-typing metal-heads is just as bad as stero-typing gamers. Just because somone is doing somthing violent in a game or listening about somthing violent in their music, isnt going to make them a "commuter-shooter".

Anyway get better soon!
