    Ehh, I guess you guys are right. I didn't really have a solid question worked out but I got it now.

    Only time I've heard someone talk about a lightweight object associated with a camel's back.

    Almost as good as Hershey, though I haven't been to King's Dominion in a while and back then I was too scared to ride everything, so I can't really pick favorites

    Is "revision" like studying for finals? If you want "brain food" that supposedly enhances your retention, you need food with Omega-3s in it, like fish. Starches, like pasta, will fill you up and keep you full for a long time, and so will peanut butter. You probably shouldn't eat anything sugary, especially right before you go to bed, because it will keep you awake and it makes you crash and be more tired more quickly. If you want something sweet, eat fruit. I prefer cherries and peaches.

    When I was in high school, I used to eat raw cucumbers and cherry tomatoes from my family's garden while I was studying. When I was in college, my roommate made me cucumber slices with lunchmeat ham on top and sprinkled with pepper one day...she ate weird food, so I was reluctant to try it, but it was REALLY good, so that's what we ate when we studied in college.

    So I'm making my Spore comic series

    When I try to upload my work to Photobucket, it automatically scales down the images which are too large

    Is this supposed to happen

    If so, is there a better place to upload it, like deviantart

    If you want to upload static images, Imageshack is great. Imageshack can't animate GIFS and JPGs unless you have a Premium account, however. Animated images can be uploaded to ******* but pictures there expire eventually and you'll have to re-upload them.


    I opened up my Nintendo DS Lite today and found that the hinges were cracked. The system is still operable but the lid is loose and it doesn't make that "snap" sound whenever I lift the lid up all the way. I fear that my top screen might someday break off rendering it broken beyond repair. I looked up my serial number on Nintendo's support site and fixing the hinges will cost $75 not including tax and shipping.

    Should I fix my system? Or should I buy a new DS model? The 3DS sounds cool but there haven't been any interesting games for it yet and it blocks my flashcart (yeah yeah I use a flashcart you can sue me).

    If you plan to buy any more games ever, then get the 3DS since there likely aren't going to be a lot of new DS games

    If you're perfectly happy with the games you have now and don't plan to buy any more, fix it

    I don't know how I feel about the Wii U. I watched a video about it, and it's like you're playing two games at once. You have a touch-screen on the controller, so you have to look AWAY from the TV (where you could be avoiding enemies or whatever) and look AT the controller to see maps and stuff. Why would you do that? I also saw a video where there are instances in some games where you're happily playing the game, and then a message comes up that says "look at Wii U controller" and you have to do something on the controller before you can advance. To me, that kind of snaps you out of the game-world, and makes it less enjoyable because you're back in real life.

    What do you have to say about it positively, so I can get another outlook on it?

    Like the Wii and the DS and 3DS and both PS3 Move and Kintic, I'd find it hard to really gauge the actual game play really is, until I actually use one.

    The Nearest to what we've got is certain Game Cube which used Gameboy advance as controllers. The first I should point out is Zelda 4 Swords Adventures, Zelda Windwaker (Optional) GBA map mode, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles. They all can use the GBA Screen in single player mode. 4 Swords will emulate the GBA screen in single screen just to make it playable, but it was designed for multiplayer with their own screen in mind. A video with footage of it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rzeig...-shows&list=SL

    Wind Waker is actually useful, but doesn't really break the game if you do have it. (Tingle won't be able to help you in bosses.) Chuggaaconroy covers the basics: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=K9Yu4rVwngg

    Like Wind waker, Final Fantasy: Crystal Chronicles just used it a screen for extra info.

    I don't know why you would want to break a camel's back, but that is just cruel

    i remember in 8th grade though, my physics/chemistry teacher just use 1 pound of brick= 1 pound of feathers, trick question indeed.

    Eh I guess I'll just keep it as it is until it breaks. If any good 3DS games come out by then, I'll leave me DS Lite behind and get a Supercard for the 3DS. The Wii U sounds nice but I prefer handhelds over consoles. I only play consoles at parties.

    It depends on how much you use the flashcart. My DS lite is also breaking and I will get a repair when necessary, because my pokémon games are region blocked from my 3DS.

    A lot, actually. Everyday. There's a Multimedia player on it and I like listening to music. When I'm not using it as an MP3 player, I play Final Fantasy and Pokémon.

    $75 for being able to keep using it daily is quite good. $75 for something that you rarely use is bad.

    I don't think you should worry that much - I mean, my DS Lite's hinges have been loose since last February or something, and it's still going strong. As long as you don't stretch it to its limits, I think it'll be fine. One drawback is that you can't trade it in for a cheaper price for the 3DS, though, but of course, I assume you're not thinking about that. Only get it fixed if it's in a critical condition, really.

    Okay, so I'm making a series in a similar format to MS paint adventures. My question is: should I capitalize the important words in the story? It looks so cool that way, but it would also be too similar to the style of real MSPA series.

I've heard there is a way of copying profile data, but it's not very safe from the looks.
    Yeah, we're using different profiles. Sounds like it should work then. Thanks

    I like going on cave tours (and have been on a couple in Arkansas) but I'm too afraid to just go exploring. I'd be thinking a rock would crush me or I'd get stuck somewhere.

    Wait, you can use a DS Lite as an MP3 player?

    About the repair, you might look to see if there are any GameXChange stores in your area. I've also heard Game On and Game Workshop can fix consoles, but I've never been to either.

    What math discussions?

    I'm not in university yet, so I don't have a major. I have self-studied some university mathematics courses though.

    The DS Lite can't be used as an MP3 player itself, but the R4 series and the Supercard DSTwo have Multimedia players built in.

    And I would prefer Nintendo to repair my DS because you know...it's Nintendo.
