  1. Heh, yeah Scott Card is great, in 2008 we get a Ender's Game movie, and i have high hopes for it, because he turned down Movie Studios for years because they wanted to change Ender into an adult, or something redicouly, and he thought Kid actors could pull off this type of roll, I think he said it was a Petter Pan movie that got him to see how great child actors can be, so 2008, something to look forward to =P

  4. I wear my pirate badge proudly, and those who have a problem with it can walk the plank (If there smaller and weaker then me of course.)

    So your proud your a theif? Your proud you take programs (and other media) that people work long and hard on, that they put a price tag for their labor on, and use it with out paying for them for their time? How the hell can you justify this? Even better, how is it you feel you need to brag about it?

    Do you have a job/career? Would you brag so much if you labored hours on end, on say... building a vehicle. However, only 7 out of 10 people paid you for this vehicle. Would you still be bragging that you are a con artist?

    Good grief, I feel like I'm back out G4 with your kind of mentality ranning rampid. Anyway, this is all i have to say in this thread.

    HAHA, funny stuff, i started off joking and you get all tense and angry, go take your meds.

    But anyways yeah, the few things i DO pirate i need for one reason or another and can't aford while working while in school, so yes, I dont let silly things like money stand in my way of learning (Meaning iv been known to download books) so im proud of risking the law-man for education...yes.

    Granted WinRAR isn't educational, but its a key of-sorts to education (Damn compression)
