Thread Details

Might as well have one of these since OT seems more interesting than the usual bickering over live vs. psn.

Now, who wants to talk about how LEET they are? -_-V

thumbing up my thread because I can.

Quote from SkeezaPleez View Post :
Weird story relating to "The Club": Back in college, circa Fall 1997, a buddy of mine was visiting me in Providence. We decided to go hit up one of the clubs that served to minors at the time(all you needed was a college ID). We didn't have a bunch of money so we decided to walk to the place and quickly figured out it was in one of the sketchier parts of town. As we're walking, some dude in his 40s approaches us in a car and asks us if we can help him. Apparently a few guys stole "The Club" out of his car and he wanted us to help him go retrieve it in some parking lot. We basically told him to fvck off(figuring that if we went with him, we were sure to either be buttraped, mugged, or both). He zoomed off in his car and we booked it running after he was out of sight, thinking he was going to hunt us down with the guys that stole his "club". laugh out loud

Everyone watch the debate last night?

I watched it on my Xbox. Was actually pretty cool, every ~5 mins or so they would pop up a poll to ask about everyone's thoughts...but the polls were incredibly predicable, I don't think anyone was actually reading them.

They could have asked "Who is the Whitest Candidate" and it still would have said "Obama - 60%"
"Romney - 25%"
"Don't Know - 15%"

But, it would be neat if everyone wasn't so entrenched in the fanboi ways...damn Xbots...

I missed the beginning of it, but facebook blew up with even the lefty's saying Romney was owning the debate.

There was one point when the guy "leading" the debate told Obama time was up...Obama said the clock still said "5 Seconds" and that he was going to use all his time...he went on to talk for another minute, haha. Facepalm What is this...PTI were the clock doesn't matter? I want 2 minutes on the clock, when it's 2 mins, its 2 mins, you're done!

I just don't get the point of the time limits...either one kept to them, so what's the point? So Jim-bob can try to act big and bad and tell the President to stop talking and then have them refuse to listen to him?

But Microsoft's Xbox Elections 2012, a platform that promised to let viewers watch the debate on their 360s and witness as audiences react in real time, might have performed worse than all of them.

I turned on my stream at around 8:30pm last night, half an hour before the debate was scheduled to start. At 9pm, it suddenly switched over to dead footage of the back of Jim Lehrer's head for about 45 seconds. No sound. Then, for the first 25 minutes of the debate, there was absolutely nothing on my screen but the candidates talking, complete with a giant "Xbox Live" logo in the top right corner. Boring.
..........
Then, around the 50-minute mark, my stream crashed. I waited a minute or two for it to come back. It didn't. I did a quick Twitter search and found that it had crashed for lots of other people too. Bummer. Hopefully Microsoft steps it up for the next one.
sounds like epic fail

oh and this is farking facepalm:

Hmmm, yea...I didn't ahve any issue like that. It was weird in that it had two feeds, but the one "feed" was just a still photo with a 10 minute time span (you could fast forward through it). I was expecting that to be some sort of "intro video" to give a little facts/background, but it didn't do anything. I just went to the other feed and it all worked perfect.

When the debate was done, after about 3 minutes it went to a view of the back of the podiums so you could see the crowd as everyone was leaving. I have a feeling the beginning must have been something very similar. Just a time filler...

I'm pretty sure at the first of it it was just a blank screen with the Live logo and audio. That's how I took it anyway, I missed the beginning.

Both me and my buddy were kicked out at the 50 minute mark for 3-5 minutes.

Ohhh, so it was more of an ode to the old timers when you got to listen to them on the radio and didn't have a fancy TV.

The debate was only on like 20 channels... why would you choose the xbox? Trying to get a red ring? laugh out loud

But yeah Romney made Obama look like a rookie. Obama was jumping from topic to topic during his responses which only set up Romney even better because Romney just made a list and when it was his turn he just went down the list and refuted all of Obama's points. laugh out loud

Edit: "Post the gif that sums up Obama's debate performance":

One win and you are giving yourself the series already?

I went to bed under the assumption it would go Extras and obviously the Os would win that...glad I didn't stay up for that last inning. I don't know why...but I think Teix is even easier to hate than A-Roid.
