Every character in Gatsby had no redeeming quality about them. I read 1984 this year and I personally enjoyed it more than I thought I would.

Don't get me started on Huck Finn...
I liked both The Great Gatsby and 1984. Two very different novels, but two classics imo.

I agree on Huckleberry Finn though, it' stinks.

That is true. Everyone in Gatsby is awful as well, but I think the reason why I hate Holden infinitely more than everyone in Gatsby is an age thing. No one in Gatsby is a high school student. also the fact that I barely understood what was being said in Gatsby half the time helps

Did you know there is a book called "The Hipster Huckleberry Finn" where all instances of the word n***** was replaced with "hipster"?

I'm not joking.

I'm aware. My friend and I joked about that last year.

Been reading up on "The Troubles", which was basically a civil war in Northern Ireland with some outside terrorist attacks in Great Britain and the rest of Ireland. Lasted from 1969 to a ceasefire in freaking 1998....with a few incidents since, including two off-duty UK military being shot dead in 2009 for being British.

Human beings are so cruel to each other :( I cannot believe these events happened in freaking North-Western Europe....

...in 1998: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omagh_bombing


There's the car with the bomb in the background....

and these two in 1988...

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milltown_Cemetery_attack

Horrificly grafic photograph in this one: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Corporals_killings

And this that went on in the 1970's: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shankill_Butchers

Leader of the this gang was so bad that rumour has it Ulster loyalist groups gave the gang leader's position away (he was making a power grab within the loyalists) to the provisional IRA to gun him down in 1982. Got away with about 30 horrific murders before then....

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Five_techniques
What the hell...shouldn't have taken the European Convention on Human Rights to figure this was messed up and illegal. Good way to create terrorists is to abuse innocent people you pick up on suspicion...




Northern Irish "Peace line" between Catholic and Protestant communities....

Problem is that our protagonist in this book is a high school student who doesn't apply himself at school, and has failed multiple times. I can't relate to this guy at all, in fact, he terrifies me. I do well in school and STILL worry about my future.

By the way, did you know in the files of Mario Kart GP there's a picture of this?

This is picture of the Beslan school hostage crisis, a terrorist attack where over 1,100 people were taken hostage by armed separatist militants in a school in Beslan, North Ossetia.
You don't think....that Nintendo is involved with that?
No, by the way Namco developed that game, and 334 people died in that attack. :(

I looked around and it was merely a debugging pic.
Now granted why they used it I would not know, though it might have been an in-joke.

I found that hard to believe, but looking at the image URL, it seems legit.

That's a messed up, to say the least.

Developers do have in-jokes, indeed. But it's still in bad taste.

The source is tcrf.net, a site that compiles beta elements and unused stuff, as well as comparing regional differences and other stuff.

Because I like wikis, I went to explore what they said about SSB3DS. Besides the same discoveries found here (ROM dumps and all that).

I found this:

Version 1.0.3
This patch was released worldwide on October 27, 2014. Conquest mode will no longer display the current results of the Conquest in progress. The update includes a slightly different mix of the Battle! Reshiram / Zekrom song for the N's Castle stage as well. It also addresses other minor issues that have not been specified.

So according to that, music can change between patches? Now to patch those shortened songs pretty please, Sakurai.

Especially the DK Rap. What they've done to it is unacceptable

Personally I like Cutting Room Floor. It's interesting to see what wasn't in.

Well knowing how people have jokes about Nazism and 9/11, I wouldn't be surprised.
Though, I did find one theory that it was put in as a memorial for someone.

Ganondorf is always great. The King of Evil returns with more power and more destructiveness. :4ganondorf:

So I managed to get a lot of good games today. I'm happy about that. I beat my record and got a 8 win-streak. But after that I got a bunch of losses from this Marzy person(is there an @Marzy guy here?). I only beat him/her 4 times while he/she won 9 times or so.

I feel like I'm getting a little bit better. But I need to be more consistent in my victories. Bowser Jr. is kind of fun to use online. I might start using him more often.

So what's being talked about in the Social today?

I saw some talk about certain wikis, like the Cutting Room Floor? I've been to that site quite a lot, it covers a lot unused elements of games that still exist within the game's files in some form but were never used in the final game, as well as region differences in the game. A lot of the things it covers are very difficult to find anywhere else.
