You play too much Ace Combat?You play too much Ace Combat?8 years ago in Humor More Like This
After a research made trough different forums and website dealing with the gaming subject "Ace Combat"... we found out that this game can cause a serious change in a persons personality and behaviour. This happens often because the players of Ace Combat are often to addicted to that game.
You play too much Ace Combat when:
-You downloaded from the internet all the soundtracks from Ace Combat... including the one of Ace Combat Advance and even the ripoff soundtrack from AC6 demo.
-When a friend of yours convinces you to do something, you reply "Let's do this Garuda 1!".
-You pick a favourite country of AC world according to your own nationality; USA=Osea, Germany=Belka, Russia=Yuktobania, etc.
-You don't find an AC nation comparable to your country, you create your own new country in AC world and you make a whole new Ace Combat version.
-When you're on the shower or bored you normaly whistle, but you whistle AC5 and AC6 main themes.
-You're counting the days until the Circum-Pacific War
...I Write to a Dead General...I Write to a Dead General7 years ago in Traditional Fixed Forms More Like This
I write to a dead general
To ease surviving pain,
A tear falls on the page -
A drop of desert rain
Like balm into the waters
Of lifes too bitter cup,
Tipping the scales of history -
To raise you slowly up.
Above your long-gone victors
Above the scorn of time
Above blind crowds and mockery,
With my ill-written rhyme.
I dont know if youll hear,
But Im doing what I can
To get this through to you
Past time and wind and sand
May the gods watch you in battle
My dear and long-dead friend
May the desert nights be warmer
And steady be your hands
Meanwhile Ill watch the picture
Of a kind-eyed weary man
And rue the sorry fact that I
Already know your end.
Helicase Helio and I were always sitting on the stairs, chatting about the lamina and occasionally making snide remarks about ribosomes. There wasn't much for us to do. Our job was to simply be, and let the RNA polymerase scribble down the letters on our foreheads when they came around every once in a while. Helio was a G, I was a C. It wasn't exactly fulfilling, I suppose. There wasn't much to be filled. So to pass the time, we talked.Helicase2 years ago in Short Stories More Like This
"You ever wonder?" Helio asked.
"About...well...what's out there." Helio and I were rooted to the stairs, quite happily, but it was awkward to move in. He kind of twisted in the general direction of the closest pore. "Out in the cytoplasm."
"I haven't," I admitted. "What's there to wonder about?"
"That's exactly the thing. I have no idea." Helio sighed, gazing into the distance. "Somehow it feels like we pl

“Bold is getting hulled!”
“Majestic is breaking up!”
“Gallant has sustained heavy damage!”
“Avarice is reporting multiple hull breaches, they're losing power!”
The reports kept coming, one after the other, as more and more ships received damage and were knocked out of the battle.
“Don't let them through!” Commodore Andora Steele roared from her command chair. “If they get past us, we won't have a home to return to!”
She need not have reminded her crew of that, they all knew what was at stake here, all knew that a loss here meant the end of not just the war, but of their people. Even if it meant every ship and its crew went down, their homeworld would not fall while a single ship of the fleet remained in orbit.
Andora could not recall what event had led them to this point. Whether it was the Arbolis campaign or the Styraki disaster or any number of the other major battles that had been joined in the century long con

By Yahiya Emerick.
Imagine learning that there are over a billion people in the world, one sixth of humanity, who follow a religion that you never really studied in school. This little known religion is called Islam. Perhaps you’ve heard the name before or developed some opinions about it based on what you’ve seen in the news. However, if you’re like most people, you might not know a great deal about Islam. Well, you’ve taken the first step toward understanding more about this mysterious way of life, and you may find yourself pleasantly surprised to learn what it really teaches.
Islam shares many of the same characteristics that are familiar to followers of Judaism and Christianity. In fact, Islam considers itself a related ideology that fits into a tight chronology with these two other religions. As the population of Muslims rises in many Western countries, and as many people discover the impact of Islamic civilization on Western thought, sc

Introduccion .::. Primera parteExisten mundos más allá del nuestro, galaxias y universos enteros son creados y destruidos por millones que tienden al infinito, cada segundo. Cada uno de ellos tiene sus reglas de física, de orden. Algunos son similares entre sí, muchos otros difieren completamente. Hay mundos de todas dimensiones, de una, dos, quince, infinitas. Tal vez en todos haya vida, o quizá en solo unos cuantos, o puede ser que seamos los únicos afortunados. Lo cierto es que la cantidad de existencia de ellos resulta abrumadora y la probabilidad de que todo esto sea verdad, es lo suficientemente alta para ser demostrada matemáticamente y convertirse en ley física.Introduccion .::.

No hay que perder de vista que un mundo puede comprender un conjunto infinitesimal menos dos de universos, o que un mundo es un universo, que cada planeta es un mundo y que en un pedazo de materia existen más de uno.

The Pirasan Civilization as seen in Pa'atratiraHailing from the world of Sansekta’ar, the Pirasan are a colonial, semi-eusocial sentient species of arthropod-like creatures. The Pirasan present at the Pa’atrata System are colonists from the expansionistic Pirasan Empire, the sole government of the species based on their home world.The Pirasan Civilization as seen in Pa'atratira9 months ago in Settings More Like This
The recent colony in Pa’atratira is just one of many colonies set up by Sansekta’ar. Though the colony at Pa’atratira is benign, open to new ideas, and have enjoyed peaceful diplomatic contact with surrounding species as well as their mother hive, not all Pirasan colonies are this accommodating. A number of similar colonies have taken to raiding and antagonizing many other species that they encounter, commandeering their cargo and cannibalizing their craft for technology that they modify to their own purposes.

Although the Pirasan have made contact with Humans for decades, their relations have been shaky at most

Soldiers of Legend Pt 6 After a few hours, Gray Fox awoke to the sound of water running. Getting to his feet and collecting his HF blade, he went to find out just where it was coming from. After searching most of the ship, he finally found the source. It was a shower room, but the door was closed. Looking around, he noted a grate on the ground that was emitting steam. 'So, that must connect to that room. Walking away, he failed to notice that the condensation from the steam had made the substance that kept him invisible to thermal sensors nearly disappear. Walking over to the nearby galley, an idea came to mind. Though a deadly soldier, he wasn't above having fun, so he made some coffee and heated some pastries. Inside his mask, he was grinning from ear to ear when he placed it on the nightstand near the bed.Soldiers of Legend Pt 65 years ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This

MV-27A Pegasus SpecificationsMV-27A Pegasus Specifications3 years ago in Profiles More Like This
The MV-27A Pegasus is a land or carrier based low-observable, supersonic VTOL multirole assault transport designed for the USN and USMC. It is designed primarily for Special Forces insertion and extraction along with performing COD for both the carrier and other surface ships.
Pegasus while low-observable relies primarily on staying low and fast to avoid enemy detection. To achieve this, Pegasus uses variable bypass turbofans to optimize low altitude performance, along with having an extensive electronic warfare and countermeasures suite built in. For more dangerous missions, semi-conformal jamming pods can be carried.
To protect itself from airborne threats, Pegasus can carry up to 4 AIM-182 ALRAAM or SRAAM air-to-air missiles internally. A retractable 25mm GAU-12 Equalizer gun turret is mounted under the fuselage to clear any hostiles around a landing site. A rear ramp mounted M134 Minigun or GAU-19 GECAL 50 can also be installed.

He ran for his life. Few things terrified him, but even a demon has his limits. He took a glance behind him, making sure his comrades were following Shit! Three of us down already! He quickly shifted his attention back to where he was running, vaulting easily over a chain link fence with his strong, muscular legs. He turned a corner, hoping by Lucifer that it was his ticket out, but his silent pleas went unanswered as he skidded to a halt at a dead end.
Gunshots rang out behind him, quickly followed by the sound of high pitched, reverberating metal sliding out of its sheath and the sickening crunch of slicing through bone, echoing down the alley. The fiend turned around, and counted his comrades as they gathered into the little alley, seemingly the stage for their last stand. He felt sweat drip down his red, almost muscle-like skin.

"What this time?" Mel asked. Mel hadn't seen Jessie since January, and here it was May, and they'd finally managed to get together in their favorite coffee shop. When they both graduated high school, Jessie had went away to college while Mel stayed behind, getting a job and an apartment on her own. Neither of them had ever liked the idea of college (Jessie perhaps even more so than Mel), but Jessie's parents had had higher expectations for her than Mel's had. Mel rolled her eyes at Jessie's statement about her parents. They were paying for her education (or at least they had been) and cared for her in a way that Jessie often overlooked, yet she still managed to find fault.

Pull my strings,
Lift me up.
Twist my handles,
I can't wake up.
Bend my joints,
Jerk my digit.
Turn my head,
I'm just a puppet.
Make me giggle,
Make me pout,
Make me run
Don't put me down,
Don't let me fall.
Don't hang me on
Your closet's wall.
I can be a ballerina,
But no matter what
I'm just a puppet.
You have a hold on me,
You just don't know;
A hold so tight
I can't make you let go.
You pull me along,
Swinging side to side,
On this dangerous joyride.
You laugh because I'm stuck,
You laugh because I'm a fagot*.
You laugh because I'm still but
I'm just a puppet.
You taunt, you tease,
You laugh, you sneer.
You giggle and say
"What have we here?"
A puppet is what you see,
A puppet so weak,
So much like me.
I sit there and stare
While you tease and play,
But it's my limit

Un nuevo personaje es algo más complejo que solo dibujar una monita o monito X y darle camisa y falda/pantalón para que no esté desnudo/a. Hay muchos más detalles que cuidar detrás de la apariencia.

RebootI punched a kid twice in fifth grade for trying to see up Gemini Hetherington’s skirt when her twin brother was home sick. The Hetheringtons could get away with things like that if they ever lifted a fist in the first place, but for a Holthausen it was like a criminal offense, and all of the better-neighborhood parents gasped at the news and wondered what went wrong in my development. I sat in the car while the principal spoke to my dad about it. Through the window I heard him warn that I would no sooner be punching Walt Burtons in elementary than pulling a knife on a man for his wallet in adulthood, and that immediate correction was necessary unless he wanted me to wind up in jail with the rest of the scum of Airedale.Reboot9 months ago in Introductions & Chapters More Like This
