Sorry if I'm late on this... but why was ManDog banned?

Apparently he got hacked and they started posting porn with his account.

Aw, that's too bad sad.gif

He was always a nice member and it's sad to see someone like him just get "hacked"

Two questions:

1. If I just lay down $5 on a preorder, does that decrease my chances of getting a game on launch as opposed to people who have their preorders fully paid off?

2. New PS3 games these days are $59.99, right? I am seeing varying prices. It's been so long since I've bought a new game.

(both questions apply to GTA V btw)

Kal is a nice member? LOL

@GTA-King: 1. Depends on whether or not Rockstar has enough copies to meet demand. Most likely yes, you'll get your copy. Things become a little bit different if you want a collector's edition that has a proper limited run. Example would be Guild Wars 2, preorders were way above the number of collector's editions that were made. So if you paid in full, you got it, if you didn't, you didn't get it.

2. Yes, new games are $59.99. Some places will give you a deal, like get 5 bucks off with a gift card or something along those lines.

I preordered the standard edition, so I reckon I will get it day 1. I'll most likely just pay in full once it releases, lol.

Much obliged, sir!

PRE-ORDERS: Serve one purpose. To find out how many copies the Publisher needs to do in the first run. After satisfying the first run then the Publisher needs to reevaluate the needs for the second demand, if there is one.
The Vendors like it because they get to use your money to buy product with less worry about recouping lost money by over stocking.

Believe it or not, there are some pre-order customers who forget and never pickup their paid for product.

He didn't switch accounts, he got banned permanently by GT-1 earlier this year for breaking the rules on several occassions. And not too long after that, he created the account Gnarlton Banks and trolled around a lot, which resulted in yet another perma ban.

I have been avoiding the forums the last few weeks and will continue to do so for a while But I have an important question to ask:

Recently I spent around $120 on two items of clothing that I bought overseas from the US. They were being shipped via World Mail which estimated 2-8weeks shipping.
Now the issue is that The second Item has arrived ordered on the 20th of August, but the first item has not and it was Ordered on the 13th. My question is:

Does this often occur with world mail, for one item that was ordered first to actually take longer to arrive? Or do you think my package has been lost in transit? Unfortunately I was a stupid motherf*cker and accidentally deleted the emails with the order confirmation.

Thanks in Advance.
- Peace.

When the sun shines on the building at a particular time of day, it concentrates the sunlight on to a specific part of the street below and results in temperatures hot enough to warp the material on cars.

The side of the building is slightly curved so it's focusing the sunlight like Archimedes Mirror on the street below, yesterday the temperatures were going above 50c+ where the light is reflected, it has also burned carpets in the shops below and also blistered the paint work of the shop windows as well.

Video from the BBC News about it, there is alos links to related videos down the side

Why does Eminem rarely smile?

Bad Teeth is the usual reason, followed by a bad outlook on life. Most likely though is it's only a persona for his fans.

Why should he smile? That isn't his job. Anyone who has listened to even a hint of his music knows that fame and Eminem don't go too well together. He doesn't want cameras in his face, radio hosts talking about his kids and front page news about what he ate yesterday. He didn't become famous because he has a picture-perfect smile, or because he's outgoing, or because of his fashion. The fame was a side effect of his music. Some celebrities live for the attention - they pay to get the extra exposure, but people like Eminem would rather just do what they enjoy without the bullsh*t involved.

Like mentioned above, it's come to be expected from him, so I think he often plays on the emotionless image for two reasons: One, if nobody knows how he feels then they can't misinterperet his emotions and contruct false stories; and two, it makes him look cold-hearted, which is important for his reputation in Hip-Hop.

Not to mention real personal issues such as losing a very close friend and mentor, forcing him into a pit of depression which it seems he still hasn't recovered from fully. Then throw in an abusive childhood, some drug overdose, relapse and struggling to remain sober in an industry where heroin and cocaine are an arm's length away and you get an idea of some of the struggles someone like him must face everyday which no amount of money can solve. Even still, he does manage to crack a smile now and then.

Without checking the all the legal paperwork, cause I'm no lawyer, I would imagine their status as a member of NATO would cease and the other members would convene in order to find a solution to the situation in order to regain stability and possibly send in support for the side who was/is/should be the democratically elected party/side in the conflict, and try and create a ceasefire in order to bring both parties to the table to discuss a peaceful resolution.

However a build up to such a civil war in a NATO member country would probably be cut short anyway via interdiction of the other NATO member states or maybe even the UN depending on the situation, to stop it escalating to such a point anyway.

Really there is no real clear cut answer because the permutations are vast.
