Alright, I knew about the no-fly list, which was a stupid and idiotic idea in the first place, since there's no way to find out if you are on it, and if you are on it and you try to fly, you get arrested. Bang, just like that. But now I find out that the U.S. Treasury Department has a list of "Person's Denied Commerce". (Note the apostrophe on the end of "persons") That is just wrong. It is sick and disgusting. Why? Because it inherently denies people on said list food, shelter, clothing, and a job. All those things require money and business. You can't legally get food without buying it. You can't legally get a house without buying it or renting it. You can't legally get clothing without buying it. I'm hating U.S. and Canadian politics more and more with every second. I'd give them a piece of my mind, but I'm pretty sure swearing is not allowed.

Well, personally, I do not care for politics in North America. Some countries are healing though, like Chile, Argentina and some (I said some, not many) African countries (also, more South American countries).

Still though, almost every country has problems... However, to North American politics and government, I say 0896812908029623459726520348967360345795479112352354 politics...

Have a nice day.

It's not just those two.  The whole "Progressive Movement" has been screwing us over since Woodrow Wilson.  Hell, FDR was a disaster for us, turning a great recession into a great depression.  

However, the biggest problem?  Instead of running the country, everyone's pushing an agenda.  This has weakened america to the point that I firmly believe we're gonna suffer from a catastrophic failure.  We've been rigging ourselves to be rolling freaking 1's for a while now, it's time to face the critical failure that results.

Oh no, I never said that it was just these two countries. However, despite there being problems now, these problems will hopefully teach us to learn from these horrible mistakes in the future. At least we do not have governments like in some of the third world countries.

Have a nice day.

In my opinion, the term "third world" is somewhat racist, and I avoid using it at all costs. Not that I dislike you for using it or anything, though. It's not nice to judge someone based on their political opinion.

The U.S. is far too scared of other people having nuclear weapons, especially considering the fact that they have more than anyone. Seriously though, in the terms of use for iTunes, they make you agree that you will not use the software to produce nuclear weapons! How could you possibly use iTunes to make nuclear weapons anyways??? It doesn't make any sense to me...

Well, this fear of other countries having nuclear power is one of the factors that made the Cold War last for a long time. Of course, it did not help that Democracy and Communism were enemies, but many things happened during the War.

Also, if you would not expect people to be able to make nuclear weapons with iTunes, then why do they tell you not to? If someone found out after buying the product, then they could make nuclear weapons, instead of not being told and not finding out. Still though, what could possibly be in the product that could be used for nuclear purposes in the first place? Also, more people by the product than make it, so wouldn't it be better (and probably easier) to get the makers to agree not to use dangerous materials in their products?

Besides... Good things have come from Nuclear energy, as well as bad (even though I prefer wind and solar energy). The Cobalt Bomb to treat Cancer, as well as many other types of radiations to treat other diseases (mostly cancers I think)...

Have a nice day.

Okay then.  The Undeveloped World.  Oh, wait, but that sounds even more insulting...

...That makes me wonder... If developed countries are First World, and Undeveloped ones are Third World... what the hell is Second World?


Anywho, it's less being scared of them having nukes, as it is their willingness to use them DESPITE Mutually Assured Destruction.  Basically, when everyone has nukes, war means everyone dies.  We don't like that idea very much.  So we're pretty much saying "Okay... let's... kinda... NOT have these, okay guys?"

Why don't we get rid of ours?  We can't guarantee that the other dudes that have them will destroy them as well... And the thread of MAD is a very very scary one.

North Korea and Iran don't care about MAD, though.  They'll use it even though it means everyone dies.


THAT is why people getting Nukes is a bad thing, boya.  Try thinking about it.

So the U.S. is using their Nukes to scare everyone else into not getting them. Makes sense, but that doesn't make it right... The U.S. shouldn't have Nukes either. Also, why are we badmouthing Iran and North Korea? Is there even any proof that they have Nukes? That's just what Bush said, and we have no real reason to trust him. Not that I'm saying that what he said is false, mind you, just that we don't have any reason to think that it's true.

Good point about Second World though... Kinda like 3rd person video games and 1st person. Would 2nd person be the point of view of the guy getting shot?

Well, I am sure that if it were not for Hitler's Germany, as well as WWII, then I am sure that if we were to have nuclear power, it would either not be as advanced, or we would already have had a nuclear war. Still though, as long as the nuclear weapons are not being used, then everything should be okay for a bit longer. Still though, for the past 65 years (approximately 65, not exactly), a nuclear war has been feared.

I think Second World, if it were to exist, would be poor developed countries.

I wonder... I was once or twice given a description of what a nuclear bomb can do (more specificalloy, what the bomb did that was dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki). If I remember, then I will type up how strong it is the closer you get to it. I know that right near the middle, it is instant death. The farther away you are, the longer it is before death, but it is very painful before you get to that stage. The radiation can literally make you rot, which is why this nuclear stuff is scary.

I was also told of all of the countries with nuclear bombs (not very many, but there were still a few). I think France is one of them... If I recall correctly, during the Cold War, both the United States and the U.S.S.R (Russia) had developed enough nuclear weapons to destroy the world many times in a row. If the world is lucky, then the world will not suffer through a nuclear war. In fact, at one point, the U.S.S.R set up nuclear weapons in Cuba, but that was long ago now.

Anyway, before I talk too much about this, have a nice day.

...Do you even WATCH the news?  They've been doing nuclear testing.  Hell, NK was testing their missile systems on July 4th, just as they most likely were the ones responsible for the hacking attacks on the US and South Korea on the same day.  You've gotta be freaking blind (or watching MSNBC) to not see this!

Sure, if the world was a nice peachy place where everyone was happy and got along, there'd be no need to have nukes.  But guess what?  Real Life doesn't work that way.  There's always gonna be an a**hole in power that wants to destroy another country for some random stupid reason.  If that country doesn't have the means to intimidate or defend itself, it's pretty much f***ed.  And the international community?  They're a joke.  The most they'll say is:  "We don't approve.  We'd prefer it if you didn't do that..." But they'll never actually ACT on anything.  Rowanda?  Genocide happened anyways.  North Korea?  They gave the UN the finger, continued weapons development, and the UN just sat there and bawww'd about it.

Now then, I don't believe they have nukes because bush said so.  I believe it because the scientific data suggests they do, and have been testing them underground.  Readings of the seismic activity generated by their tests suggests they've got the power now to match Hiroshima.  Bush?  He couldn't know what the hell a seismograph is, let alone be able to read one.  I trust the data more than I trust some random guy.  That goes for Epic Fail Obama too.  I don't trust one man's word more than I can throw them, but I'll trust hard data any day.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_World
The meaning of first- and third-world now is different than it originally was, though the divides are still roughly the same.

As for the question of nuclear weapons, I believe Einstein said it best: "I do not know with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones." When a bunch of angry old men have the power to destroy the world, the end result is obvious. It's less a matter of "if" and more a matter of "when."

Well said, twocows.  And thanks for the intel about Second World.  That whole new meaning thing explains why I've never heard of it.

That is an awesome quote, Twocows.

I'm personally not worried, mainly because of my happy-go-lucky opinion on whatever happens (I mean, what the heck are you supposed to do if deadly amounts of radiation leak into the atmosphere, enough to kill off all life?)

The human race is a destructive one, that's for certain. But, maybe like the Cold War, the countries will not destroy each other simply out of fear of the destruction of the world.

We ARE the most suicidal species on the face of the planet.  We have a reputation to uphold, after all.  Perhaps making OURSELVES go extinct would pretty much permanently put ourselves at #1 suicidal race of all time.  I doubt any species would be able to beat us in earth's future if we pull that off...

Lemmings own us in suicidal rates

Many people definitely get to aggressive, and end up destroying themselves. It's sad. Maybe that's why I'm docile, because I prefer not to fight. In a life or death situation, however, I think that I would follow the aggressive mentality, and maybe because of that people are more destructive than others, due to having to deal with such situations more than me. Possibly though evolution, we lost the need to kill animals to defend ourselves, but due to our inheritly aggressive behaviour we picked fights with ourselves.

Fox: I must say... life can be complicated..... when you have question(s) (via email) ... and it seems like they sort of get ignored. :D ; Fun, (And sometimes, a person may respond, and completely not answer the question.... so like... 3-person conversation.) Hahahaha!!
January 15, 2018, 07:26:16 PM
Fox: (path) 1 text=(address) char=(address) free=(address) ; << Well, closer to this... but yeah... even if I do choose to have defaults in the code, I could still use this method for overrides.
January 15, 2018, 07:24:28 PM
Fox: So like (path) 0 text=(address) char=(address) len=(number) ; (path) 1 free=(address) ; Or something. But that's just a quick example.
January 15, 2018, 06:59:14 PM
Fox: Hopefully. I was wanting to make it so you could put in the addresses/etc. as one of the arguments in the path. Hm?
January 15, 2018, 03:37:07 PM
KyleRunner: Nice! I hope you'll add compatibility with others games (GS1, Mario Golf and Tennis) soon.
January 14, 2018, 11:40:09 PM
Fox: Okay. Posted (in Downloads section) an initial cutdown version for now, for my text compressor. Basically to separate the code from my Editor for anyone who wants to mess with it. It only supports GS2, because I still didn't add the addresses/etc. for the other games.
January 14, 2018, 05:01:00 PM
Fox: Okay! Going to need to think how I want it to work. Initial thoughts is maybe have a number of arguments in the filepath thing. And have a number of shortcuts (files) to be used as examples. Assuming there are no problems.
January 14, 2018, 10:38:24 AM
KyleRunner: Well... I'm used to editing text ina a text editor, so... yes! Thanks in advance!
January 13, 2018, 11:38:43 PM
Fox: (Text editor = Text Document like notepad.)
January 13, 2018, 11:38:21 PM
Fox: Would you prefer during the text editing in a text editor? (Like what gstoolkit lets you do?) I could probably make a separate tool or something to compress it.
January 13, 2018, 10:10:02 PM
KyleRunner: Ok. Once I finish my Lost Age translation, I'll try a Mario Golf one. Thanks. (But I'll need help).
January 13, 2018, 10:03:17 PM
Fox: If you want to make it "permanent" (part of a hack), then you'd edit code in the ROM that writes to this location of the IDs you'd want to change. (You can find these locations by using a breakpoint debugger like SDL-H or no$gba.)
January 13, 2018, 10:00:11 PM
Fox: Reload/switch = Recommended to be done through Debug mode/warp menu, ofcourse... since doors seem to appear as if they were disabled? ; 03001238:01 and B+Start to get to warp menu.
January 13, 2018, 09:55:39 PM
Fox: @Kyle Runner = It might be, but you'd have to use the correct addresses for Mario Golf, rather than for GS2 as I have it right now. ; @raijinken = Yes. 02000454 = ID of leader. (Change this and reload/switch room you are in, enjoy.)
January 13, 2018, 02:23:29 PM
raijinken: Hey guys, is it possible to somehow change the lead character on the map? Was wondering. I remember there was a cheat to use Jenna, but what if I wanted Isaac, or Piers?
January 13, 2018, 02:10:03 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, Fox *
January 13, 2018, 02:09:37 PM
KyleRunner: Hey, is your text editor compatible with Mario Golf (GBA)?
January 11, 2018, 08:33:13 PM
Fox: But if it isn't an oversight, I still can't imagine it being that useful.
January 11, 2018, 08:28:24 PM
