  1. Hey Kissamies I just realized where your avatar comes from - that's a Shofixti if I'm not mistaken.. sweet!
  2. Yeah that was my thread - got a pretty good response for awhile until it got too off track and one of the mods locked it
  3. A quick way to get 2 sabers is to choose Nar Shadaa as the first planet after Telos. You should have one part of the saber before you get there and on the planet you will encounter 3 people who will either give you one lightsaber part (if you don't have a saber yet) or a complete (and random apparently) saber (if you have already constructed the first one). A) A guy in slummy apartment thing off of the docks: His wife is stuck in the area controlled by the Exchange and he wants to get her back. Once you get in there and kill all the exchange guards and what not you tell her the coast
  4. I think so. If a new game were aimed at the original XBox and released late 2006 (at the earliest), using the same old engine, the graphics would be substandard and the game wouldn't sell well. It wouldn't be a wise move on the part of the developer or LucasArts. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> I think you're all forgetting the fact that not everyone is going to rush out to buy the XBox 360 as soon as it launches. The sytem is going to be $400+ which is simply out of reach for a lot of people. To reach the biggest audience they would need to release it for both, but definately the XB
  5. Here is another point to consider: Intelligent does not necessarily infer the ability to make moral choices. Tolkien Orcs or the Nazgul for instance are a good example of this - they can think, they can even communicate with other people, but they were created by the Dark Lord for the purpose of being evil and they have no ability to make moral choices in the matter. Being a Christian, another example that springs to mid is the devil, or more broadly, demons in general. The devil is extremely intelligent, as are his demons. They are heavenly beings (angels who fell). I would argue t
  6. I certainly wouldn't want to be the first human test subject to take that ride. You remember what happened to that baboon in 'The Fly' eh. Turned inside out and all. I think that if there ever is a teleportation device it would be impractical and raise too many safety concerns to use a "break down the atoms, reconstruct the atoms" approach. With all the variables that would be involved in properly coverting the mass to energy, energy to mass and reconstructing the person to EXACT specifications (taking into account the variableness of biology) I just don't know if I would trust a comp
  7. This is something I have often struggled with in regards to teleportation technology. What is being experimented with currently is a system that perfectly copies (and in doing so, destroys) the original object and then perfectly re-creates (aka duplicates) the object on the other side. It is in fact very much like cloning in a way because the ORIGINAL object is not being transported at all, but is being broken down, recorded into a code and then the code is being transmitted to a receiving station which constructs a new object from that code. It may look, talk and think exactly like yo
  8. I believe the blue Twi'Lek Jedi is Aayilah Secura.
  9. Darth Bandon. He may be a Sith, but what kind of stupid evil overlord wannabe just shows up in the control room of his own ship and starts blowing stuff up for no good reason. Like "See how evil I am master! I just killed a bunch of your men! Give me a kewpie doll!" The guy is flat out retarded.
  10. Fourth dimensional mathematics wsa an example of why your puny "my brain hurts" argument was invalid. And time is not THE fourth dimension, either. It is an additional dimension, traditionally ascribed to the fourth dimension, mainly because humans don't have need for a fourth spacial dimension in everyday conversation. Super String Theory curreny theorises in 11 dimensions, for example, none of which are chronological in nature. Using the pitiful biblical metaphor to further Paley's "Divine Watchmaker" or even Newton's clock-winding god theses only goes to re-inforce the blatantly obvious
  11. ... So where is the dilemma? God is both all-knowing and all-powerful, but he also follows certain rules that he built into human beings from the start. First of all, he allows us free will, which means that he didn't make a race of robots, because robots can never truly love their creator. God created children - people who would love him and follow his lead because they CHOOSE to, not because he forces them to. The true measure of "all-powerful" is in the ability to choose when to exert that power over others. ... <{POST_SNAPBACK}> This is what I was afraid of: spammed by

  13. How can you even tell? The language just sounded like someone making squishing sounds or talking with a mouthful of mashed potatoes. <{POST_SNAPBACK}> This almost sounds like Leeloo's divine language in the 5th Element..
  14. Just to play devil's advocate here I think I should point out that the actual REAL LIFE application of the "moving" or "sweeping" wing design (i.e. F-14, F-111) also feature wings that sweep back while in flight (better aerodynamics it that case I guess) and then move out for better stability when in combat. Of course I guess aerodynamics don't matter in space so I'll go with the "looking nifty" theory.
  15. Human nature is wrong with being a Communist. A Flawless Utopian communist society is not possible because the people responsible for it are NOT flawless! Anyhoo.. this isn't actually a political debate thread. Come think of it this isn't a virginity debate thread either. Oh well!
