@lightleggy: Sweet drinks are girly drinks. That's pretty much what it comes down to. Beer and hard liquors are not girly drinks and they don't inherently taste bad. Generally the difference (in this case) is that men drink something for the experience of drinking it while women are just trying to get drink and act like they're on Sex and the City. Wine IS a relatively sweet drink but it's something that both men and women drink for the experience (or to unwind) and isn't considered a girly drink. Anybody with a respect for alcohol will tell you that you should taste the alcohol or you're not doing it right.

Which is all well and good. The occasions when I do really want to get drunk, there's nothing quite like a (sweet) Grateful Dead or Alabama Slammer. About 3 shots each and it goes down like water.

If you wake up and step outside into the real world....you'll find out girls don't all drink sweet drinks and some guys do. Stop making alcohol a girl/guy thing. It's not.

Gee... sorry, I thought he was asking a question! My bad for answering. Thanks for the news flash! I thought beer bottles came with dicks attached so that you knew they were "just for men!" Wait... didn't the last line say that I like sweet drinks?

Sorry to burst your bubble of "who you think I am" but if you actually read my post... Gee,Not only that but I made it a point to inform our dear friend that the alcohol isn't what makes it a girly drink, it's the people who drink it which tend to be the blonde bimbettes who go to Frats to get wasted and get male attention or have completely sworn off guys for the umpteenth time and sit on "verandas" with their "gal pals" talking trash.

That is essentially the definition of the term as used in the context he presented. Am I wrong? Or are you so pent up on your one opinion that you are incapable of seeing a normal discussion as... a discussion. One of my favorite drinks in my college days was Jack and Sour Mix. I quite liked Smirnoff Ice actually and Mike's Hard. I hardly drink them any more since I don't generally have as many sweet foods/drinks any more and find the sweetness overwhelming and a little nasty. So instead I tend to drink Stella Artois (which is an Ale) or occasionally I'll toss some Jack into Hot Chocolate or Apple Cider. And I love me some Red Wine. My wife despises beer. But she's tried every single one put in front of her to see if she likes it. I've seen her drink quite a few men under the table with any number of hard drinks.

But you keep at it champ. Keep pretending that you know everything that's everything and that others are stupid and the opposite of whatever you identify yourself as. It's the fools way.

EDIT PS:

Par of the reason I married my wife is because she's not a "girly girl" and she's actual a person instead of a walking stereotype. She has her own mind and her own ambitions. She stopped wearing heels a long time ago because I convinced her that, while I liked them they are far more effort, pain, and risk of injury than they are really worth. Except for once in a while (our wedding for example), she never wears them any more.

But such things are endemic of social inequality. The problem isn't the skirts, the heels, the tops, etc. It's not even WHY they are worn that's the problem. It's the fact that it's done subconsciously. Don't believe me? When women go out "clubbing" (which is generally differentiated from "dancing" which doesn't require men's attention), they always dress "cute". Have you ever see a "cute" ring? Tops, skirts, heels are all cute. Rings? Definitely not. Aside from intentionally childish clothing, there are really no instances where the word cute would be used and the word sexy doesn't also apply. How many women actually realize that though? And so they get ready and dress "cute" when they go clubbing rather than sexy. So that they can be sexy and not be guilty. It also means that the sexiness then falls on the men, not them so they are blameless if somebody gets the wrong idea. I have no problem with women dressing sexy and crushing a few hearts. I take serious issue with trying to remain ignorant of what you're doing.

Extra Life is just around the corner (Nov 2) and I was thinking there must be quite a few people on GameSpot that have set up teams. I was hoping to give a single thread where people could post their teams so that others can find them and join if they like.

So! Do you have an Extra Life Team? Are you looking for more members or people to play with during the Marathon? Please post your Team and any pertinent information (which hospital you are supporting, if you are looking to play a particular game, etc.) below!

@BluRayHiDef: A little mixed I guess. I don't think it's used inappropriately or overly unrealistically considering the characters. They make it very explicit that the way that it's used has different meanings. One of the FIB agents calls someone that and it's very obviously meant to be an insult but when Franklin or Lamar uses it, it's very much used in the same way that one might say "brother". And I'm not really against that.

To be fair, I do also think that at least some consideration was put in to the use of the word as a symbol of economic class and education level. This isn't really all that different from how Michael or Trevor spell things terribly when they send text messages.

@Jebus213: I'm not a forum person but... You're trying to tell me those are what passes for good forums? They all seem to be painfully colorful and obnoxiously cluttered. If I didn't look at the url first, I wouldn't have been able to tell you what I was looking at.

@darkspineslayer: I can agree for the most part but it all depends on the person. A true sandbox game? You'd have to go to Far Cry 3 or Just Cause 2 for that. You are just given tools and a direction that you can choose to follow. After that, you're on your own. I don't know that Sandbox entirely does the game's style justice though. The point of this game isn't "Sandbox" but "world". And at the moment, in that regard, few games can compare and most of them are R* games (RDR for instance). When you jump into Los Santos, you feel like you're part of a place and that it's not just your toy box. When you leave, the world continues on without you. But Far Cry 3 or Just Cause 2 don't have the same detail and at the end of the day seem to exist for you to do things to, rather than do things in.

It's not as much of a Sandbox game but I've never looked at the landscape of most Sandbox games and wondered what kind of people lived here and what they did for a living (beyond "Good Guys" and "Bad Guys").

@Ricardomz: Even at the top notch schools (the Harvards and the Yales) students don't wear suits except possibly to very special events where most of the attendees will likely be Professors anyway. Wearing suits is not a sign of maturity as children have worn suits to church for quite a while now.

There's no reason that you CAN NOT wear a suit. Young men can look very good in suits. I would advise against it though simply because of society. Wearing a suit when you will be the only one out of likely thousands of people would be detrimental to your social image. Most people would likely think you're full of yourself or cocky for wearing a suit around college and especially to college (when you'd likely be moving things in a manner that is not conducive to wearing a suit). Clothing is always a statement and you should always consider what it says about you when you wear it. If you wouldn't be caught dead wearing jeans and a t-shirt to an event where everyone is wearing suits, why would you insist on the opposite?

That's not to say that you can't dress smart. Get a comfortable pair of boat shoes, a couple pair of understated slacks or khakhis and maybe a colored dress shirt. Roll up the sleeves and unbutton the top couple of buttons. It's a very Ivy League look and you won't stand out as much except to possibly professors who would likely look positively upon your outfit.

But most of all, remember that while your clothes are important, your personality is the most important. The difference between James Bond and a hot shot prick is that while both might wear a tux, one of them has the personality for it while the other doesn't.

I'll give OP credit where credit is due. He seems a lot smarter than he did at first. Troll satire it appears?

[QUOTE="Trinitarian"] I'm board cause xbox is down so i thought i'd have a little fun with it. I thought by all my corny answers people would realize it was a joke thread but i guess not. litttlejohn

I honestly dont think there were people who thought the threads were true...... however, most jokes are funny, whereas this was just stupid. So i suppose in a way you are right, that some didnt know you were trying to be funny and instead thought you simply to be idiotic.

That's what it sounded like to me. I feel like people were more interested in trying to spare you but you just weren't interested in taking their advice.

[QUOTE="litttlejohn"]

[QUOTE="Trinitarian"] thank you when the facts come out i expect an apology letter from the each of you.Trinitarian

it will be interesting to see everyone apologize that they didnt flame you harder for such poorly laid out made up arguments, of which has all been claims from convient secondhand party information that has not once been remotely credible. (for the record people googles web cache, clearly shows no such talk ever having been mentioned on xbox on their forum. )

i dont know what planet you live on but i'm a level 22 rank here on gamestop, almost a 23. My word is dam near law.

Honestly, thanks Trin. I knew your "news" would be fantastic entertainment. I've just spent 15 minutes going through and laughing at all your spelling mistakes, backasswards logic and mock quotes (That has to be the WORST mock press release I've ever seen! "Ohhhh also, we have oreos! So everything's k! Bye!") Please, continue!
