Did you bring enough for everyone?

If you have been hiding in the cupboard, secretly scoffing everyone elses portion of cake, then I am not surprised you feel a bit...full

It's the normal pretentious crap from The Grauniad, it's nearly as biased as the Daily Fail.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

Sorry if you've heard this story before, but... I once stood in line behind Steven Tyler of Aerosmith at an airport. Man, for being such a cocksure rock band front man, that guy sure is short.

Also: Napoleon wasn't really that short. It's just that he was usually surrounded by really tall grenadier bodyguards, and they were also wearing tall bearskin caps. (The caps were a meta-tool to make the guy look taller and more intimidating). Napoleon looked small in stature in comparison.

It should also be noted that aristocratic Frenchmen invented high heels by and for themselves, so they would not be looking up to the peasants. Considering who Napoleon was and his background, and height being of importance regarding the aristocracy (those that survived the revolution anyway), all this about Napoleon being short is par for the course.


To compare the goon leader to Napoleon is probably false. I liken him to be more like the boss from "Office Space" crossed with General Buck Turgidson from "Doctor Strangelove".

Gotta love it when someone is famous in a game or whatever, they think they are famous the world over and let it get to their heads. 99.99999999999999999% of the world would just say "Who?" when gaming celebrities are mentioned.

5' 2" - In contemporary French measurement. 5' 6" to the rest of the world. Even by modern standards, not notably short.

One guy with an ego the size of France and uses 'just playing a game mate' as an excuse for his 'ego rubbing' needs doesn't make for a Napoleon complex.

Now, why so many are 'enchanted' by this is worth studying.

Sadly, we're already bored of their flashcard retorts to being poked.

Well that is what part of my sig means...

That if you remove the restriction on morality, then your deep down emotions come out.

Looking to talk on VOIP with other EVE players? Are you new and need help with EVE (welfare) or looking for advice? Looking for adversarial debate with angry people?

Immoral and amoral are two entirely different things.

Immoral is having no morality, being wicked or evil. If you are immoral, you know what society considers right and wrong, yet you do wrong anyway.

Amoral is having no morals at all.

While many acts committed in Eve are considered immoral, given the lore, backstory, the societal norms of the factions and the general nature of the game they are actually amoral.

This might help.

amoral - Lacking moral sensibility; not caring about right and wrong.
indifferent - without interest or concern; not caring; apathetic: his indifferent attitude toward the suffering of others.
apathetic - having or showing little or no emotion

Hrm... Well, I think people who gank know that ganking is considered wrong by society in game terms, but chose to enjoy doing it anyways. Nothing wrong with that.

If you don't realize it is wrong, then you must get confused everytime concord shoots you.
