I would fail the test and then have sex with the teacher, regardless of gender. Because after all, those who lie, cheat, and shamelessly self-promote get furthest ahead in life. Cheating FTW! :wassat:
Throughout this month, we will be testing new features (like search) so you may experience some hiccups from time to time. We'll try to not be too disruptive...

RE: Cheat your test?
RE: What are your hobbies? What do you like to do?
I only have two hobbies: playing videogames and having sex…preferably in separate intervals.
I would include eating and losing faith in humanity in there also, but that's more of a lifestyle.
Everything else I do is more of a means to achieving the above said hobbies than anything else.
RE: Shout-out to all BlacksPinoysAboriginalLatinosUKHumansLookalikes!
Hey, How'sit going nig. About tyme we's got uh thread fo' us blacks. what 'chew thinking man?
To the mods, I hope it isn't a problem if we speak in Ebonics here.
Ohhhh, I get it! A reference to a post in the "Shout-out to all Pinoys!" thread which this thread was parodying! How very, very clever of you! :wub:
Shout-out to all Trolls!
I'm a Troll, and ever since I saw a username named "Trolly" or something, I've been curious as to who else is Troll in this forum. I think I remember someone posting about Trolls in the Harry Potter thread too. So to all Trolls, make yourself known here!
RE: My printer and college
Your college experience will depend greatly on what you make of it. What affects a lot of people going away to college (if you happen to be living on campus away from home) is their newfound independence. I'm not sure how many units/credits constitutes a class, but something I did was to register for the classes I needed/wanted to take, got a feel for the courseload involved for each class, then either added or dropped classes accordingly to fit a schedule I was comfortable with. So if it's possible to register for your requisite classes and the photoshop class, I would do that, and see how things go from there.
Things to watch out for: Crappy teachers cripple a course, even if it's the most interesting subject in the world. But you probably already knew that.
Also, as it's college, there will undoubtedly be some degree of partying, drinking and/or sex, drugs, and rock and roll. Have fun, but you might regret slacking a little too much if you don't balance your recreations with your workload.
RE: Any Bookworms Here?
I'm kind of disappointed that no one seems to have answered with "porn" yet.
You guys are slipping.
I'd rather watch it than read it, although I do have a niche for reading porn written by famous authors during their early career. For example, little did I know that J.K. Rowling meant for her hit series to be a cheesy raunch novel originally titled Hairy Potter and the Sorcerer's Bulge. Or that J.R.R. Tolkien had originally titled his trilogy "The Fellowship of the Cockring," "The Two Throbbing Towers," and "The Return of the King" (strangely unchanged).
And, man oh man, you don't even want to know what Dr. Seuss's Hop on Pop was originally. :wub:
At the risk of the perception of unerring erudition, I shall endeavor a rejoinder to your querulous interrogatives with all the dispatch such a dissertation decidedly deserves.
blah blah blah, regurgitate local media source.
blah blah blah, regurgitate family political views.
blah blah blah, haughty condescension on forum members.
blah blah blah, defensive stance protecting my social insecurities.
blah blah blah, defensive stance protecting my questionable sexuality.
I think I've discovered a pattern.
LOL! I R B Parrot! BWAAAAK!
RE: The Final Battle
I predict Wapol will eat everybody on the planet except for the Strawhats, who then fuse together to form the legendary Super Strawhat. An epic duel between everybody in the world vs. the SH ensues.
RE: World Government Corruption?
They desire, above all else, to stop anyone from bringing back the lost weapons of the ancient civilization, the destructive power of which are equivalent to a nuclear arsenal.These are fairly lofty goals. Should someone bring back the ancient weapons (pluton, poseidon, etc.) it would cause massive, worldwide destruction and loss of innocent life.
Caveat: The world government in following these goals have no respect for the human rights of those they consider threats.
I would agree for the most part, but since this is a manga, I would argue that there could exist a better alternative to the current system that the WG has. I think that caveat is a big reason why we see the WG as "corrupt."
Still, most of the atrocities of justice we have witnessed CAN be justified if you consider the threats to world peace that they eliminated.
The Buster Call of Ohara can be explained by the need to keep WMD's out of the hands of terrorists or megalomaniacs. Plenty of people in the modern world would willingly sacrifice a known number of civilians to prevent the equivalent from happening on Earth.
The WG offered little diplomacy or discretion in their destruction of Ohara. Likening it to this real world analogy, it would be something like dropping an atom bomb on North Korea because they possess WMDs–without diplomacy, without discretion.
The Buster Call's goals seem to be very much like the use of the Ancient Weapons. As it was said,
I believe crocodile said at one point that the weapon would give him the power to wipe an entire island off the map, hence the nuclear comparison.
Which essentially seems like what the Buster Call did to Ohara.
Having said all that, I think that there could exist a better system than the WG, at least in theory. This isn't the real world, so we aren't limited by the constraints of practicality, I guess. As such, there could be a system of government, unified and altruistic, that could exist in One Piece. I'm going out on a limb, but such a system might have existed in the period during the "lost century" and was destroyed by the current "corrupt" WG.
This, in addition to the handful of local corruption of WG positions that we have seen the SH encounter, would mark the WG as the "bad guy."
Yeah, it makes sense that the easiest way to deal with the Ohara problem was to erase it from the face of the planet, and for all practical reasons, it is a good move by the world government. But this is shounen manga, where extremism in the face of adversity apparently is a vice (at least for the WG). So all those innocent lives lost make the readers scream bloody murder, and the general structure of the WG is forever pegged as bad.
Were we to one day find out that the WG established itself 800 years ago out of disorder and chaos in a society ruled by the strongest and most ruthless "survival of the fittest" world, we would probably cheer the WG to no end. However, I have a feeling rather that the WG did something a little more negative than that–something will be revealed that makes themselves the ultimate bad guys--and that's why it's okay for Luffy to go against the WG like he is.
Maybe the WG isn't really that corrupt, but right now at least, it seems the WG is the bad guy.

What do you get when you cross Zoro's sense of direction with Jyabura's devil fruit transformation?
A "Where?" Wolf!
