YOU KNOW HOW BABIES GET ALL QUIET AND CALM WHEN THEY SEE A MOBILE
SO APPARENTLY THEY DO THIS BECAUSE THE MOBILE RESEMBLES BIRDS OF PREY FLYING OVERHEAD THAT COULD POTENTIALLY CARRY THEM OFF
IT’S A EVOLUTIONARY PRECEDENT SO THAT IF THE BABY STAYS STILL THE BIRD WON’T NOTICE AND EAT IT
BABIES DON’T LIKE MOBILES
THEY’RE FUCKING TERRIFIED
I am more than a bit disturbed by how hard I laughed at this.
I LOVE THIS
i hate it when adults assume i’m on the internet all the time by choice. if i had enough money to travel around and etc, do you think i would be withering away my youth behind a computer screen you useless paperclip.
I dont think i have ever heard the term useless paperclip used as an insult before.
that is the single most incredible insult i have ever heard in my life
when I was little, I went through a phase where I’d wear my Spiderman costume under all my clothes, so I wore it for about 3 years straight and my mom never found out until one day when we were at a family party, I was wearing the costume under a really fancy and expensive dress, and someone started choking on something so I ripped off the dress to reveal the costume to try and save them, and I think my mom just about had a heart attack
Since unveiling our plans for Xbox One, my team and I have heard directly from many of you, read your comments and listened to your feedback. I would like to take the opportunity today to thank you for your assistance in helping us to reshape the future of Xbox One.
You told us how much you loved the flexibility you have today with games delivered on disc. The ability to lend, share, and resell these games at your discretion is of incredible importance to you. Also important to you is the freedom to play offline, for any length of time, anywhere in the world.
So, today I am announcing the following changes to Xbox One and how you can play, share, lend, and resell your games exactly as you do today on Xbox 360. Here is what that means:
An internet connection will not be required to play offline Xbox One games – After a one-time system set-up with a new Xbox One, you can play any disc based game without ever connecting online again. There is no 24 hour connection requirement and you can take your Xbox One anywhere you want and play your games, just like on Xbox 360. Trade-in, lend, resell, gift, and rent disc based games just like you do today – There will be no limitations to using and sharing games, it will work just as it does today on Xbox 360.
In addition to buying a disc from a retailer, you can also download games from Xbox Live on day of release. If you choose to download your games, you will be able to play them offline just like you do today. Xbox One games will be playable on any Xbox One console — there will be no regional restrictions.
These changes will impact some of the scenarios we previously announced for Xbox One. The sharing of games will work as it does today, you will simply share the disc. Downloaded titles cannot be shared or resold. Also, similar to today, playing disc based games will require that the disc be in the tray.” —
Microsoft eats crow and does an XBox One80. Excellent! Never let anyone tell you that speaking out against these kind of practices is useless. Thanks to people getting vocal about this, the XBox One is much more consumer friendly and easier to recommend. Speaking with your wallets has helped too - preorders for the PS4 were practically double the XBox One at our store, and I doubt that was unusual.
Now I can actually support the console, eventually - just not at $500.
Hahaha, so even after all the bitching and Microsoft caving and giving in and giving people exactly what they wanted, I see people posting things like “I’m still not gonna get it because its too expensive” or “Microsoft is still douchey so I won’t buy it.” or “They don’t care about me, they just want my money!”
I’m sorry Ren, was that a shot at me you were taking? I don’t want it at $500 because it comes with a camera I don’t want nor need that tacks the extra $100 onto the price tag - it’s extra cost with no added perceived value. If that somehow offends your sensibilities or makes me some kind of hypocrite to you, well golly I just don’t know what I’d do with myself. :|
Before we get to the answer, we have to first understand the difference between subject pronouns and object pronouns.
Therefore, if “you and I” are performing the action, it should be “you and I”:
- “You and I are best friends.”
- “You and I are supposed to work together.”
- “You and I crossed the finish line at the same time.”
(TIP: Never use “you and I” at the end of a sentence.)
If “you and I” are receiving the action, it should be “you and me”:
- “The teacher picked you and me as study partners.”
- “My parents will give you and me a ride to school today.”
- “John promised to take you and me to Disneyland.”
(TIP: Never use “you and me” at the beginning of a sentence.)
There is another way to figure out which one you need. Simply cross out “you and” and see if the sentence still makes sense:
On a somewhat relevant point, if you want to see why Lady Gaga’s “You and I” should have been called “You and Me” (if she cared about grammar), click HERE.
You know you had a Catholic upbringing when somebody says “May the force be with you” and your instant reaction is to reply with “And also with you”.
Lift up your lightsabers.
We lift them up to the lord.
Let us give thanks to the Force our guide.
It is right to give the Force thanks and praise.
my mom and gram are seriously talking down about my new cousin because she chose to have a justice of the peace and keep her maiden name. It’s her wedding not yours, even more so, you were all buddy buddy with her a minute ago.
