  1. Very cool. PBS puts out some great documentary/history material; their American Experiences series is top notch, in my opinion.
  2. I think its much more balanced than the original release of Mill. In the original, there's not very many feasible ways to get to B as a terrorist - you either have to flood middle with smokes and rush, or you can get picks at spiral and hope the rotation doesn't cut you off. The new version gives the terrorists more options for taking the B site, and, as a result, it makes it a more viable map since its not so CT-biased. In a server like ours (competitive casual) a map that is normally CT-biased (like Mill or Dust) becomes an exercise in futility for Terrorists. For example, on Dust the server can really bog down into an AWP-fest because the CTs get to the best sniping spots more quickly than the Terrorists, and people will leave the server if they feel there is ridiculous imbalance. I think the same problem exists in the original version of Mill. I also like the newest change of making the "heaven" area of B accessible by stairs instead of ladder. I would definitely like to see the newest version on the server. To be honest, I always get disappointed when the public server switches to Mill because I know its the original version.

  4. Found this randomly on the internet. This dude makes a lot of CS tutorial videos, and I recognized some of the names in this video. :D http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xVNf_qIvwEE
  5. [quote name='Fusion' timestamp='1360179618' post='8267'] hey guys i been busy with life and playing xbox. sorry i havent been supporting the clan much. Hope everyone is doing good! [/quote] Yeah man, you sponsored me through my recruitment and then dropped off the face of the planet! You need to come on and do some ten-man scrims with us!
  6. I've played dota 2 a couple of times now, but I'm still pretty terrible. I'm using Huskar, currently.
  7. I agree with Hilikus on the need to be able to use the competition server. The headshot server is awesome and frequently populated, so we should definitely put our ten man scrims in the comp server.
  8. [quote name='M.E.R.C Janos' timestamp='1359135190' post='7387'] Puss and gplaydee, you two make very good points. 1.) Yes that quote is a bit weak from how it was said but in some cases it is the truth. If a law abiding citizen has the legal means at their disposal to defend the lives of them and others, they should act on their legal right. As ive said above if there was a teacher or individual at that school with a CHL it would have end there and then and maby no one would have been hurt or killed. 2.) Stats have shown that when theres no guns crime goes up and viceversa. Also as ive said more guns might not be the answer to every problem but pending the situation gun do good and not just bad. 3.) The Second Amendment was written for the common person to Bear Arms and if nessary to fight the threat government tyranny. [/quote] [quote name='Puss in Boots' timestamp='1359122760' post='7369'] The implication of their statement regarding what constitutes as a "good guy" is very concise: Someone who carries a gun but wouldn't shoot anyone unless they were a threat to the well being of themselves or others. They have specified this before as well in other speeches/statements. It's not as lazy as it first sounds. [/quote] The idea that "more guns solves the problem" is flawed, in my opinion. Take an example that occurred within my city a couple of days ago: [url="http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/22/lone-star-college-shooting_n_2527806.html"]http://www.huffingto..._n_2527806.html[/url] Two men got into a verbal altercation that lead to each of them drawing weapons and firing upon one another. If people were allowed to carry guns on campus, then it is feasible to assume that a teacher and a few students would be armed in such a situation. While not everyone would respond by pulling out their weapons, the theory postulating "the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun" emphasizes the need for responsible gun carrying citizens to utilize their arms to defuse the situation (ie. kill the two gentlemen). As a person who works at a university, I cannot begin to explain the implications of such actions. What if multiple people joined the fire fight in order to mollify the situation? Such a scenario would undoubtedly take a turn for the worse. What if some of the individuals were poor shots, or fired with proper intention and missed and hit an innocent bystander? Who would take responsibility? The proliferation of guns is a serious problem in this country and simply adding more to the mix is not the solution.
  9. I use the regular WASD setup; however, I bind my smoke/flash nades to the two buttons on the side of my mouse and the HE nade to the number 4 so I don't have to toggle through all of the nade options to get the one I want. Otherwise I think my setup is totally basic. I still open up the buy menu so I can customize my buys if necessary.
  10. [quote name='Element99' timestamp='1358708855' post='7035'] and i think even the sims qualifies as more of a game then farmville holdin [/quote] Haha, does it? I've never played Farmville before so I have no idea what it is.
  11. Dude, if you dig Nile and Necrophagist, give these guys a listen: [url="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U16hXRMqJw"]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_U16hXRMqJw[/url] Its a technical death metal band from Canada; they're pretty badass. Definitely one of my most recent favorite bands.
