Great Rumbler
Heh, those pics are awesome. :)

Classic. :D

Dark Lord Neo
I like the one with clippy

OB1
Yeah that one's the best. :D

Great Rumbler
I always hated Clippy...

OB1
Thank God for Open Office.

Great Rumbler
And the option to turn Clippy off.

OB1
Open Office is still better.

Great Rumbler
Probably.

Dark Jaguar
There was a time I would have found ALL of that hilarious. A lot of those jokes are obviously done by the ignorant though..., those with no idea of why defragmenting is needed for example.

Now however, a limited bit of those are funny to me. Namely, the expansions for an NES game. (MS didn't invent this though... I think Maxis did...)

DMiller
The clippy one is definitely the best.

Dark Jaguar
I'd find that funny if it wasn't for the fact that Nintendo is ALREADY doing that.

Navi: HEY!

OB1
Yeah that's true...

A Black Falcon
Quite funny. Obviously lots of technical inaccuracies, but it's pretty funny if you ignore such things...

I have Microsoft Flight Simulator v.3, it fits on one floppy disk you know... :)

bountyhunter
Yeah and for some reason it is a top down view with aliens that all line up in six rows and you have to kill them all to get onto the next level, it reminded me of that space invaders game...and since when did commercial planes fly in space any way?

A Black Falcon
Huh? Um, what game are you talking about? Space Invaders? :)

MSFS is quite definitely a first-person game about civilian aviation from, probably, the very first version. I know v3 is.

bountyhunter
dammit, the kid told me his dad worked for microsoft and that he could get me a glitched version of microsoft flight sim v3 for ten dollars, there really IS a game called space invaders? F#&%!

Dark Jaguar
Not really inaccurate, they'd have to know SOMETHING, even something WRONG, to be inaccurate. It's more like total ignorance really :D.

A Black Falcon
Yeah, DJ, that's more like it. And a bunch of those display that ignorance. But as I said, if you forget that and just take it as humor it's pretty funny. :)

EdenMaster
Sounds like you got gyped, bh :)

Silly Aussies.

Great Rumbler
dammit, the kid told me his dad worked for microsoft and that he could get me a glitched version of microsoft flight sim v3 for ten dollars, there really IS a game called space invaders? F#&%!

Crickey!

Quite funny. Obviously lots of technical inaccuracies, but it's pretty funny if you ignore such things...

Of course it's not accurate. It's intentional exaggeration for the purpose of being funny, a tactic I use all the time.

bountyhunter
You know, I've always wanted to be on a plane when the pilot dies, and the co-pilot for that matter (he was a rapist so it's not wrong to have him die in this movie) and the stuardess comes on speaker and says "Please people, don't panick every thing is going according to plan, does any one here know how to fly a boeing 747 model B493?"

Then some geek stands up and says "uhh miss, I used to play flight sim 2 will that do?"

yah, das vil be fun, yah.

OB1
I think it'd be even better if the pilot didn't die.

Great Rumbler
Then some geek stands up and says "uhh miss, I used to play flight sim 2 will that do?"

According to most anti-videogame activists that's all that you'd need.

bountyhunter
This is a movie directed by James cameron (Aliens and Terminator) The pilots dead, sorry.

And great, your telling me there's anti games activists? dude that would suck. There's this one move in soul calibre 2 I've been trying to memorise and I'd love to try it on one of them... wait... we need a gamers annonymous thing.

Great Rumbler
And great, your telling me there's anti games activists?

Here in America there are. Something about violence in videogames turning kids into mindless killers or something like that.

bountyhunter
I always thought the violence in video games was a government conspiracy thing to teach kids how to kill and work as a team without having to get them into the army, yeah I could have sworn my resistance towards joining the army was lowered after playing some war games for a few years, infact I know how to use 17 of the worlds most used fire arms, and can rebuild an m4 riffle in 60 secconds, and I haven't even touched one. It's a conspiracy I tell you. Think about it though, wouldn't it make sense to do that?

Great Rumbler
Well, our goverment did spend millions in tax payer dollars to make an FPS about the American military which it then distributed for free.

bountyhunter
That was them getting bold, you think thats the only game they had a hand in?

OB1
Well that and Full Spectrum Warrior, yeah.

bountyhunter
*pats OB1's head*

There there young one, the brainwashing only hurts for the first few years, but soon you'll accept the fact the government you love has been turning you into a killer without you knowing it, infact, you probobly enjoyed it, killing arabs, and russians, all this time not knowing how well you are at it.. there there..

OB1
Actually I'm probably one of the few people here who doesn't think that most Arabs are evil. And I have some Russian friends, so I wouldn't like to kill them. Now Nazis, well, those guys are just plain EVIL.

Dark Jaguar
Government conspiraces are impossible, especially with the parties so polarized right now.

Besides, that don't explain Japan :D.

lazy: Japan DOESN'T EXIST! And the parties are just a show to pacify the masses! The PATRIOTS, they are the secred organization that truly runs the country!

DJ: But, I totally saw Japan on TV once!

lazy: COMPUTER ANIMATION!

DJ: Oh right... well okay then...

GR: DJ! Listen, how do we know this?

lazy: I just proved it, to your FACE!

GR: No you didn't! You just spouted out random theories explaining away the plot holes!

lazy: That IS proof!

GR: NO IT'S NOT!

DJ: Yes, it is.

GR: No it ISN'T!

DJ: .....Well I don't know! I'm outta here... worst day of my life...

lazy: connnngratulations! *DJ runs back in all happy* You passed the "government conspiracy challenge"! Now for the amazing prize!

GR: Alright!

----------

GR: *Next to skeleton bride* I'm not marrying this bag of bones!

lazy: Seriously?

GR: Yes.

lazy: Alright then! Congratulations! I know I said that was the last test but it was THIS! You WIN! You are REALLY something!

GR: Yes I am, what did I win?

lazy: FREE BRAIN SURGERY!

GR: Now that's what I'm talking about! Hey wai---

--------------

GR: *drools*

lazy: Now eat 'em....

OB1
Best ending of AT ever.

Great Rumbler
Bacon aside that was the best sandwhich I've ever eaten.

OB1
:D

Great Rumbler
Btw, this Sunday at 11:00 pm [that's central time] they're showing a new episode of Aqua Teen.

Dark Jaguar
Yes, and it's the last episode ever, because they are cancelling this show! It's like one of their best ever! What, we got Stroker and Hoop now? That show sucks! It totally sucks!

This is just another bad decision...

See my signature for what I think is the reasoning here...

Great Rumbler
Hahaha, you've got to stop believing every bump you read. :)

http://epguides.com/AquaTeenHungerForce/

Dark Jaguar
I didn't read it on the news, Adult Swim stated it as one of their commercials. If it wasn't true, they were lying. Besides, what's that site show that I'm supposed to see anyway?

Great Rumbler
It's fairly self-explanatory. It's an episode guide for Aqua Teen Hunger Force and as you can see there are still five episodes that haven't been aired yet.

OB1
Wait, ATHF has been cancelled?? Please tell me that's a joke.

Dark Jaguar
So I see... Still, those commercials with the Force getting killed one by one by the same truck, and then Carl expoding, keep saying the last episode will air at such and such a date because the show is cancelled...

Maybe it's some dumb joke though... Remember the flying sea creature battle? That thing was of course hilarious to watch, especially the forum goer's idiotic posts, and they slapped the people who cared for whatever reason in the face with that ending :D. I LOVED that! Then there was Hocky Chicken.... Apparently my never visiting the AS web site... ever... (nor do I plan to, ever) got on their nerves enough that they said "free this guy". I mean, I never HEARD of that character, why would I care just because they are doing the "this guy is popular now because we said so!" routine?

OB1
Because they are way cooler than any of us and can do whatever pleases them.

Great Rumbler
They always do stuff like this. They enjoy stirring people up and lauging over all the angry rant-sized posts in the AS forum. There's at least five more episodes of Aqua Teen and it would be insane for them to cancel it because it has some of the highest rating in the AS block.

Dark Jaguar
Indeed, but really they shouldn't just lie to us. Mess with the people at the AS boards, sure, because they all SUCK and are total idiots, but not the normal fans like us.

Anyway, it seems the latest version of that commerical adds, right after saying it's cancelled, that it's on every sunday. I do believe that's hint enough they are just lying. This isn't april fool's day, they can't lie, ever, until that day.

Great Rumbler
AS makes all kinds of crazy commercials. Like the ones with the exploding pirahna.

Dark Jaguar
Yes, but those were for things that actually were going to happen.

Great Rumbler
Well, anyway, they're not cancelling Aqua Teen so you can stop worrying.

OB1
Yay!

Dark Lord Neo
My uncle had the whole The pilot got sick and we need someone else to fly the plane thing happen to him, but it was an air-force transport so they had a bunch of people who acutually good fly the plane.
He also said that when he went for an interview at air canada they really did ask him to try flying one of the planes on flight simulator.

Dark Jaguar
Roll the R's! Hurrrray!

Though I've figured as much out by now.... It's just odd that they would just announce it out of the blue, so serious.

Great Rumbler
It's just odd that they would just announce it out of the blue, so serious.

It's because they like to trick people. It's like honey to them, the anger.

Dark Jaguar
This is a bit far though... I just don't think it's right to flat out lie. At least flash the words "just kidding" right after the announcement.

nickdaddyg
Guys, jokes like that are OLD!

Yeah, it's funny though when you look at reality, and see that MS is being successful. Outsold PS2s in April.

Oh and is GC production still halted?


HA!

OB1
:erm:

Great Rumbler
Oh and is GC production still halted?

Yeah, I think they resumed production like a year ago.

Geno
:rofl: I gotta show these to the people on my buddy list.

Clippy was the best one, hands down.

Great Rumbler
Clippy!! NOOOOOOOO!!! *Clippy explodes* Yeah, I never liked him anyway. *bursts into flames* Ow.

Geno
Clippy sucks, but the Clippy parody rox0red my sox0rz.

Great Rumbler
In the next version of Windows they should give you the option to make Clippy go away by blowing him up.

Dark Jaguar
Clippy isn't even a part of Windows, it's a part of office, and you CAN make it go away, AND you can change it to something else. I picked the kitty cat.

Great Rumbler
No, I want him to explode. It's the only way.

Dark Jaguar
How exactly would you blow up a paperclip anyway? It's just a small bent metal pole, there's really not much you could do to it. It would be like trying to kick a piece of gum's arse. You won't get anywhere.

bountyhunter
I have to agree with GR on this one, simply turning him off will not do. The prospect of the paperclips return is inevitable, wether it's because you format or because you make a new user for your friend, girlfriend or family member, you WILL see that paper clip again.

So either it gets blown up for good or it will always return in a cheesy mid day TV kind of way, much the same way people return in pashions or to a lesser extent, like a T1000 in Terminator2, and just like those two examples the return always looks different but still wants to kill you.

If we have left over explosives the dog, cat and fat guy must go with it.

Great Rumbler
It's just a small bent metal pole,

That's no reason not to strap 100 pounds of TNT to it and light it up like the 4th of July.

It would be like trying to kick a piece of gum's arse. You won't get anywhere.

If it was that Scottish gum from the Extra commercial I'd do it anyway.

Dark Jaguar
You woudn't really light it up though.... The most that would ever happen to it is parts would be broken off, the least would be it's sent flying and nothing happens to it at all.

And the T1000 couldn't be blown up. It had to be molten. So, melt the paperclip.

Great Rumbler
Maybe, but we've got a big budget so we're gonna use lots of pyrotechnics.

A Black Falcon
Use Wordperfect or OpenOffice or something and avoid Clippy altogether... and if you must use Word, I am of the opinion that shutting him off is plenty good enough. :)

big guy
but wait...then nothing get's blown up. and isn't everyone here who matters american? and don't american's live solely to blow things up? it's in our blood damnit!

Great Rumbler
Not blow things up?! How un-American!!

Geno
How can an American oppose the idea of blowing Clippy up?! You unpatriotic hippie!

Great Rumbler
Anyone who doesn't want to blow something up is COMMUNIST!!

Geno
Yeah, why don't you go to Russia with the rest of the pinkos, you Commie bastards!

Great Rumbler
My dad's a capitalist, you jerks!!
