Motherf***er. Mouse double clicked during highlight (on-going issue), I didn't notice, hit backspace to clear a highlighted section and it sent me back here...to the topic (outside of the 'reply' page).
Boy, if only someone had suggested to use Outlook or some other Word document to avoid these stupid types of snafus. Oh wait, I did. My usual problem with using the box on the board is when my pinky swipes the Esc key which clears the entire box with no "undo" option to bring it back.
The use of the 'reply' page was only necessary due to length and highlight issues in Chrome.
Highlight issues? Like you can't highlight stuff? Good Lord. Just use IE, for goodness sake.
For some reason when I copy text from this board to Outlook it shows up as white text so I can't see it. No big deal really since I don't really need to see it and I could change it to black if I really had to. Ah, the adventures of message boards.
I don't have the patience or time right now to start all that over.
Quitting because it makes you redo a certain part? Perhaps the message board should have more checkpoints. Lazy casual.
I've had that a few times. Have you been diagnosed with it before by other doctors?
I have when I went in for coughs in the past. I kinda think that it's the go-to response for most doctors when you have a cough and they can't quite determine what it is. The doc I saw yesterday was at least willing to admit he wasn't sure what it was but the x-rays showed a bunch of flem. Lovely. Looks like I'll just get to DEAL WITH IT for a while.
It makes sense in the context of the story but as far as gameplay is concerned it is disheartening to lose all the progress you made before.
Plus it was just kinda boring in general. Wander around an area and shooting folks just to start the war could get very tedious, especially when no gang members would spawn or you didn't kill them in succession quick enough. Then this leads to...more dudes to kill. I guess I didn't mind killing folks that much but there was too much of it. If I play it again, I'll skip doing it the first time and just take over territory when I return to LA.
Foreman did lose, but I've come to understand he suffered a really bad cut in his mouth during training, and because of that couldn't spar for a whole month prior to the fight
I've seen Foreman talk about the fight and don't remember him mentioning that one...he even says he was the "dope" in the rope-a-dope. I more blame Foreman's corner who sat there watching George throw useless punch after useless punch round after round and didn't seem to pull their fighter aside to maybe suggest something else. It was so obvious what Ali was doing and no one in that corner figured it out? Just stupidity all around.
You can't take away Ali's victory or his amazing performance, but his victory was in part due to luck.
No way. That was all strategy and George being stupid. Ali played him like a fiddle. It also spoke to how tough Ali really was...very few dudes could take that many shots from George but he could. That dude must have had ribs of steel...it seems like he almost never took damage to the body. The hot weather definitely helped Ali but that's all part of the strategy...George had plenty of points in that fight where he could have backed off and rested.
He was called Smokin Joe, but I don't think he even smoked.
I believe the name came from his style where he's constantly bumping up and down like a smokin' train engine. Dude never stopped moving.
Mike Tyson later ducked a fight with Foreman for this exact reason.
I never heard of this one. Which era of Tyson was this proposed? I have a hard time believing that Iron Mike would have ducked anyone in his prime (he took on Larry Holmes who was certainly younger than George). Was it after his jailtime maybe? But it's pretty well known that Mike struggled against really tall dudes so it likely wasn't a bad decision. But if George had fought Mike in his prime, I have a feeling it would have ended up just like Foreman/Holyfield. George would have probably been unable to hit Mike but George would have likely been unfazed by most of Mike's shots (due to the height thing) and it ends in a Tyson unanimous decision as everyone is impressed that George absorbed all those Tyson shots.
I remember that comic existing but I never read an issue.
They had a series of these with a number of Marvel characters...all of which were pretty weak. I don't even know if they're still around but considering that basically every comic has a ton of alternate universes to it these days, I'm sure they are.
That's happened to me and I was really looking forward to what you had to say.
As I mentioned, I type all of my responses in Outlook or Word and then copy/paste them over for this very reason. It's too easy to lose them on the board window while Outlook and such has the highly convenient "undo" function if you delete stuff on accident. Outlook even autosaves the messages in the case it is closed on accident. Mucho useful.
