Quoting J-n-L:
I don't see anybody using this thread and it's noble purpose. I am pissed off, and will now make it my mission to not let this thread die for a year. I have spoken.


Now that's what I call a new year's resolution.

So basically...Yay for low post count? And since most of these people have been here for more then 5 years, then it doesn't seem that bad. Hell, we probably spend that much time blinking in that time frame.

Now how long does it take to google search images on the other hand...

Quoting phyxiusanimus:Speaking of being seven EM-years old... assuming it takes an average of ten seconds to write a post and perhaps five seconds to read the post that you are replying to, have you ever considered just how much time you've actually wasted on EM?

evileskimocal: 5,632 posts or 84,480 seconds or 1,408 minutes or 23.5 hours of your life used to banter on EM... and that's being conservative and not taking in account for all of your archived posts and other posts that took you longer to read or write... painful.


Is that all??? I've been alive nearly 7,500 days, and I haven't even managed to waste one on eM? That is quite painful indeed. I am a failure at wasting time.

Actually, it's a lot easier with video games. I think I manage to waste at least 2 hours a day on average playing video games. This has been going on for, say, 6 years, so we're talking like 3,500 wasted hours here. I think that's good enough.

Pfft, I've spent way more time than that on here. ;)

But how is playing video games a waste of your time? I'd say wastes of your time are working without getting paid for it, losing something and trying to find it, setting up something and taking it apart, etc...

How is eM a waste of time either? Things that entertain me serve the purpose of keeping me from being bored or unhappy. That's being useful enough in my book to not be considered a "waste." However, some people consider stuff like video games a waste because it's not time spent earning money or furthering your education, but I'd say I've learned quite a bit of useful stuff from games and forums. Especially since I hope to one day be a game designer. Therefore all the time spent playing video games is helping me pursue a career! Happy

The way I see it, anyone who spends all their time earning money and furthering their education is wasting their life.

Can you design a Java game based on the Off-Topic forum, and all us idiots in here? You have complete freedom on what the storyline and gameplay is like.

I agree.

That sounds like a good idea. I'll think about it, and maybe create it over the summer.

Make sure to include a Forum Troll in the game and a naked robot character.

Sure thing.

By the way, everyone feel free to throw out ideas for the game. Not just who/what to include, but what the actual gameplay will be like. What genre of game would you want? What's the objective? Etc.
