True, though the flu has never made me throw up before. It's only made me get really weak and almost pass out from hunger even though it hadn't even been that long since my last meal.

Sometimes it makes me really sick, sometimes it's just like a bad cold. The last time I had a flu (I guess there are different types), I was pretty sick, but it only lasted a few days.
User avatar #319246 - ZenMacros (09/15/2014) [-]
Yeah, I've only had it a couple times, and both times it made my muscles really sore, like I had done an intense full body workout for the first time the previous day. But for me they usually last a day or two.

The soreness is like an endgame for me. After the worst comes, then you're just left to feel like you can barely stand up.

The flu is worse because it's basically a cold where your muscles hurt too.

It sucks so much shit, but thankfully a flu doesn't last as long as a cold does (at least not for me).
User avatar #319239 - thedudeistheman (09/15/2014) [-]
The flu is also known for making you throw up, which I'd consider worse than just having a cold.

I'd wager that this sort of immersion tech is the future for film (definitely gaming), it might just be something we get used to in the same way we transitioned from live theater performances to screens. I can imagine people being weary of sitting at home on a couch and just watching a box, some probably thought the idea was absurd when they could just drive down to a local theater and watch real , live performances.

With the 360, It's more personal, more relateable, more realistic. Isn't that what we are striving for in films today? To make characters and worlds seem as believable as possible? The way we film things and the technology we use to view it has a huge part in achieving that.

But I guess we'll have to wait and see, it would be annoying to have a clunky, heavy headset on just to watch a film, so unless they made something more comfortable or practical, I'd have to agree with you. The cleaning bit might be easy, just another thing to wipe down with a cleaning solution. Or maybe you could opt for bringing your own headset and just plug it into a simple hookup on the back of the chair.

It's not deep at all. It's just possibility. I watch movies for entertainment, plain and simple.

"If you control how a movie plays out, wouldn't that just be a video game? "

You brought up interactive worlds. I expanded on the idea as I thought it was a good one. Movies aren't so unlike video games in that they are scripted. It wouldn't be a video game, it would just be a movie with different possibilities. We sort of get that now with alternate endings in special features. This would just be an in movie choice that would eventually lead to different events and endings.

User avatar #24952 - eight (09/13/2014) [-]
That is a concern. I'm not entirely sure if it could be easily adapted. I think it's possible, as instead of focusing on lets say 30-40 different camera angles spliced together, you'd only focus on the angles where the scenes take place and then restrict the depth and perspective, making it a 2d again.

If it isn't possible, then we can't really expect this to be a viable film option until the headsets are easily marketable and the storage space required for the data is common. That will probably be another 5 years at least before the 2-3 terabyte drive is the new 500 GB-1tb drive. The movies, even if compressed, would be huge. I'd probably estimate in a compressed form, maybe 10-20 GB's and likely around 750 GB's - 1TB uncompressed. And of course, it would have to be digital, as I don't see blu-ray making any dramatic advances in disk storage space.

As far as the huge screen and theater goes, it's somewhat irrelevant where the headset is concerned. Although the headset is smaller, it will appear larger. The headset is designed to mimic human sight. There is no screen larger than your eyeballs (if that makes sense). When you watch a screen, although it might be large, it doesn't take up all your field of vision, it's actually a pretty small square relative to your field of view. The headset is designed basically to do just that, to fill in all that empty space as if you weren't watching a screen at all.
User avatar #24954 - thedudeistheman (09/13/2014) [-]
It seems like we just have different preferences then. You are making valid arguments. While it would be cool, I wouldn't prefer to watch more than a few movies like that.

Also, you have the problem of cleaning the headsets. I certainly wouldn't want to be the last one to put one of those things on at the end of the day.

Even under the portal analogy, you'd have to assume it's something special. The portal is either there for a reason (which reason)? Or if it is there by chance, you've decided to sit down and watch it, making it special to you.

I can understand that, but I think that people would get over that quickly. I mean when you're out and about, how much time do you really spend inspecting every little thing? Typically, you glance around and go on about your business. If something happens that is out of the ordinary or is important, you focus on it because it's interesting. Of course, it might be different with 360 movies.

That I do find as a legitimate concern, moving on when you're not ready. It might be weird. But I do think we'd be able to get used to it. The importance is immersion, so as long as your surroundings are convincing and look real, I don't think it would be a huge problem once we understand the dynamics of how the films operate. With many video games, especially older ones, we get used to the linear structure. Where, you can't necessarily go off the beaten path. You're directed down a specific path and can't choose anywhere else to go or do anything else. You have objectives displayed in front of you and the only way to move on is to solve them.

I think where movies are concerned, we are many many years off from such an interactive world. But that is a terrific idea, a film where you can make choices and choose how events unfold. You could revisit the movie and make different choices to get different endings and sequences. That's a brilliant idea, but imagine the amount of work that would be needed to be put into it. I do think we are a ways off, we'll have to leave that to the gaming world for now.

Stoners dont like Jack Black anymore

Anything Jack Black can do Jonah Hill can do better

and that isn't saying much because Jonah Hill is just as bad
User avatar #148 to #147 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (01/07/2015) [-]
I like Jack Black more than Jonah Hill, but I like Jonah Hill too. Jack Black's just been in more movies I like.
User avatar #149 to #148 - murrlogic (01/07/2015) [-]
Such as?
User avatar #150 to #149 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (01/07/2015) [-]
King Kong, Tenacious D, Tropic Thunder. I haven't seen Bernie yet, but I think I'd like it.

>Tenacious D

I liked Brutal Legend, but I'm not really into tower defense, so those sections weren't great for me.
User avatar #153 to #152 - murrlogic (01/07/2015) [-]
That **** came out of nowhere

This looked like a Beat 'Em up Open World Platformer/Racer
User avatar #154 to #153 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (01/07/2015) [-]
Yeah, it felt a bit out of place, especially considering the gameplay before the first time TD showed up. The game also had a good sense of humor, from what I can remember, so it was a fairly odd mix of genres.
User avatar #155 to #154 - murrlogic (01/07/2015) [-]
Anywho

what are you up to right now?

hello. I was wondering if you would like to form a bond of friendship.

Would I have to fill out any paperwork?

Can I get it by fax?

Well then, after getting the paperwork done, the bond shall be established.

I just wanted to say thank you.

Anyway, I'll be off now. Cya.
User avatar #105 to #104 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I remember this. It was no problem at all. I was just trying to help. If you don't mind me asking, are you okay? What happened?
User avatar #106 to #105 - instalation (03/28/2014) [-]
I'm pretty okay. It's been nearly a year but I think I'm finally about to actually drop him. I've decided on it now, and I'm pretty okay with the idea.

I just feel like I should have thanked you for your help and stuff.
User avatar #107 to #106 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
I wish you only the best of luck. You deserve happiness, and especially to be treated well.

I appreciate that, but you really don't have to. We shouldn't have had to talk about that, but unfortunately, there are people in the world who abuse others. I just wanted to lend a hand. I'm glad I could help.
User avatar #108 to #107 - instalation (03/28/2014) [-]
Thank you.
To be honest I don't know what else to really say..
User avatar #110 to #108 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Oh, hey, just as a side note, my offer still stands if you ever need to talk. But yeah, I hope everything works out well.
User avatar #111 to #110 - instalation (03/28/2014) [-]
I was just planning on stopping by. I might come back later. I just felt that thanks was in order
User avatar #112 to #111 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
Okay, no problem. I'll be here if you do decide to come back for a chat. Again, it was really no trouble at all, but I appreciate the fact that you came back after nearly a year to thank me for that. It does mean a lot to me.
User avatar #109 to #108 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (03/28/2014) [-]
That's okay. It's sort of hard to transition from the previous topic. I understand you might have planned to just stop by quickly, so if you'd like to go, I just want to say it was nice hearing from you again, and that you're okay. Again, best of luck to you.
User avatar #96 to #95 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
Yes, I see, yes.

After a full analysis of the content shown above, I have come to a single question: What is this?
User avatar #97 to #96 - revengeforfreeze (11/06/2013) [-]
I have no idea honestly
It's print screen taken from this video I watched

It's pretty funny I'll link it to you
www.youtube.com/watch?v=1M_9gtmMZpk
User avatar #98 to #97 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
I'm not quite sure what to make of that.
User avatar #99 to #98 - revengeforfreeze (11/06/2013) [-]
The video? Me neither. It's just cool.
User avatar #100 to #99 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/06/2013) [-]
Can't disagree with you there.

It's been like, 6 months, damn. Time goes by too damn quickly... How was your life when I posted this and how is it today?
User avatar #116 to #115 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/22/2014) [-]
Well it was good then, and it's good now. Thanks for asking. How's yours been, and how was it then?
User avatar #117 to #116 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
That's great, man. Anything new except for the thoughts about ocd?
Ive been a bit confused but else great
User avatar #118 to #117 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
No, nothing in particular. Just school work and some other things. Mind if I ask what you're confused about?
User avatar #119 to #118 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
School is hard isn't it?
Also yeah I think I am confused about my fluctuating mood
User avatar #120 to #119 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
Eh, sometimes it is, sometimes it isn't.
Any ideas for what could be causing it?
User avatar #121 to #120 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
Hiw about now
Music probably
User avatar #122 to #121 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
It's good. Been getting more homework than usual, though, but that happens sometimes.
That must be some intense music.
User avatar #123 to #122 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
It's for a good cause though the future. Lol cheesy
It is, this particular song is called sterile nails and thunderbowels and every time it makesme feel an eemotional storm..
User avatar #124 to #123 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (04/23/2014) [-]
Is it a good song at least?
User avatar #125 to #124 - revengeforfreeze (04/23/2014) [-]
I think.it is. Took me a while to get used to the vocals but they massively add on to the experience of despair.

I've watched it.

It was interesting. Being that it's experimental and has come from the creativity of your own mind, I can't even begin to imagine what it could represent, if anything at all. But I like it.
User avatar #91 to #90 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
At the moment what is there means pretty much nothing in terms of the visuals meaning.
But as the original premise was coming from my fear of procrastination, what I'm wanting it to be is that it's simply something I've made, that I can say I've made and can be proud of, show people, and have actually achieved something... And I guess that's the meaning
User avatar #92 to #91 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
I understand what you're saying. Good luck with the rest of the video. Judging from this, I'm sure it'll turn out very well, even if it's nothing like this part.
User avatar #93 to #92 - tvfreakuk (11/03/2013) [-]
Yeah I'm currently working with Paper Mache in stop-motion of a moving eye with the lighting superimposed on top.
In a way, it's going to be about the procrastination thing again (with the eye being "distracted" by the lights) but it just makes it interesting visuals, rather than the narrative I had before about the computer that was just getting a little complicated
User avatar #94 to #93 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (11/03/2013) [-]
That sounds like it'll be really interesting. Best of luck.
#87 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #88 to #87 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/28/2013) [-]
That sounds great! Sounds like, when completed, it would be worthy of a festival run.
#80 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #82 to #80 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I do remember. Maybe I'll be able to catch it at a festival. Seeing as this is now the case, if it does get played at any festivals, can you let me know which ones?
#83 to #82 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #84 to #83 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I'd been thinking about going to some festivals with some friends anyway. Your film might coincidentally be playing at said festival.
#85 to #84 - tvfreakuk has deleted their comment [-]
User avatar #86 to #85 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I live near New York City and the surrounding areas, so I'd most likely be going to a festival in or near the city.

User avatar #70 to #69 - zaxzwim ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
and you said something about having a server?
User avatar #71 to #70 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
I used to have one up. I plan on creating a new one, but I haven't found the time to do so. Enabling the port forwarding on my router requires a reboot, and I don't know when I'd be able to do that without interrupting others.
User avatar #72 to #71 - zaxzwim ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]

User avatar #77 to #76 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
No and no. At most I've messed around with some Bukkit plugins, but the server I used to host was either Bukkit or Vanilla with some client-side mods (TMI, any number of flying mods, maybe OptiFine).
User avatar #78 to #77 - zaxzwim ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]
well your in for a world of confusion then
User avatar #79 to #78 - thedudeistheman ONLINE (09/07/2013) [-]

The following events took place on what I believe was the first server I ever hosted.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, and another kid are playing (we'll call that kid Goaty)
> Goaty is doing something far away from the town we built up (this was probably around Beta 1.2 or very close to that, so we couldn't hijack pre-built towns)
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun
> Go into Goaty's house
> Place TNT under one single block in his house
> Put pressure pads on every single block in his house to trick him
> Goaty comes back
> "What is this?"
> Tell him it's just a game
> "No, you guys put TNT under my house."
> The jig is up but he still hasn't activated the TNT yet
> Goaty starts breaking all the pressure pads
> **** , we didn't anticipate this
> Get nervous that he won't blow up his own house
> He breaks the pressure pad he was supposed to step on
> I replace it
> At the time, he would always hit you the same number of times you hit him
> I punch him once
> I turn around and start running
> I step on the pressure pad to activate the TNT
> Scooby Doo sees this
> **** is going down
> We both rush out of the house
> Goaty just barely makes it
> Kaboom ************
> His house explodes
> Turn around to observe the damage
> 95% of it is gone
> Only some of the sides remain
> "WHY DID YOU GUYS DO THAT?"
> Tell him he stepped on the pressure pad and blew it up
> Goaty rages
> Scooby Doo and I head off somewhere else
> Goaty destroys the museum we made and some other stuff
> Looking back on it, we did deserve it
> To this day, whenever it comes up, I still tell him that it was his fault
> Don't know if he knows the truth or not

Kinda short, but still one of my favorite experiences in the game. If wanted, I have one last story I could share.
User avatar #67 to #66 - georgeojffs (08/13/2013) [-]

The following events took place on a server I used to run but unfortunately lost the world file for.

> Myself, Scooby Doo, HGA, and Friend A are online
> It's pretty much always just us
> We all wanted to try messing around with Bukkit, so I boot up a Bukkit server with a few plugins
> Have this one plugin that has a ******* of commands
> Scooby Doo and I decide to try them all
> At the moment, only he and I are OP-ed
> Go out into the desert to mess around so it doesn't affect the town
> Find one command that lets you spawn huge balls of material
> Let's try it out
> Spawn a huge ball of sponge
> Neato
> Decide to spawn an even bigger ball of water or ice or smething
> Probably has a radius of 50 or larger
> Entire server lags out
> Less than 1 FPS
> Even the town gets a lag spike for a few minutes
> After eventually getting back to town, the lag dies down
> Call that area "The Forbidden Lands" and never return to it
> Don't let it stop us from ******* around
> Move to unpopulated jungle-like area (jungles weren't a biome yet)
> Find a command called "delchunk" or something
> Gee I have no idea what this could do
> Decide to test it where Scooby Doo is standing
> Nothing happens
> "Maybe it doesn't work or something."
> Suddenly entire chunk disappears and he falls all the way through the world
> We share a hearty laugh for a minute or two
> Have no way to undo our mistake
> Have to block up missing chunk
> Only do top layer
> Wait for some poor soul to dig over there and find the horrors that lie below
> Go back into town after testing some less fun commands
> Find some commands that appear to cause large explosions
> Go to HGA's house
> Decide to test the explosion stuff practically right next to his home
> "But thedude, we don't know how large the explosion radius is."
> "Please, I know what I'm doing."
> Use a nuke command or something similarly destructive
> Aim the cursor fairly far away from HGA's house
> Press enter
> ************ .everywhere
> Massive explosion lags out the server for a moment
> The edge of the exploded area can't be more than 5 blocks away from HGA's house
> "WHAT THE **** WAS THAT?"
> HGA is visible distressed
> "Don't worry about it, it was nothing."
> Keep dicking around in town, yet more cautious of seemingly explosive commands
> Find a fireball command
> "It can't be that large."
> Fire one off near HGA's house because we clearly know what we're doing
> Let me tell you, this was not a small fireball
> Strikes the impact crater the nuke left
> HGA can see it from his house
> "GODDAMMIT WHAT ARE YOU GUYS DOING?"
> "Don't worry, we're being careful."
> Suddenly notice HGA's roof is on fire
> Initiate game type Firefighter, difficulty = insane
> Fire is spreading like STDs in a sex ed video
> Quickly make our way to the roof of his house
> Put it out quickly somehow, but don't question it
> Replace blocks before he notices anything
> Eventually finish going through commands in a less destructive manner

Sort of an anticlimactic conclusion, but not all stories have the best endings.

I have two more stories I remember that I can share, if there's still interest.
#62 to #61 - BlakHoleSun (08/11/2013) [-]
Another good story.

The following events have taken place on various server. I think this particular story was on one of my servers.

> Scooby Doo, Hunger Games Addy (we'll just abbreviate that to HGA from now on), and I are messing around on the server
> HGA is working on his house or something
> It's primarily wood-based
> Scooby Doo and I decide to have some fun and play firefighter, a "game" we made up
> The game involves setting someone's house on fire, turning around (or watching) for five or ten seconds
> This server was made after fire spread was nerfed in one of the updates, so we decide to give it a full twenty seconds before stepping in
> See HGA's house is mainly made out of wood
> Tell him we're going to have some fun
> Responds with something along the lines of "Okay, just don't **** around near my house"
> He has no idea what we're doing
> Perfect
> Scooby Doo and I go to the front of his house while he's working on the back
> We each set one block on fire
> Turn around and count to 20
> Turn around to face the house again
> Oh dear Lord what have we done
> Entire front of the house is one fire and spreading inside
> We both start to half-panic, half-laugh in that panicky sort of way\
> Both start punching out fires as fast as possible
> It does virtually nothing, as the fire just re-spreads to the blocks
> Start breaking blocks to prevent fire spread
> It's no use, blocks are breaking from fire anyway
> "WHAT THE **** IS GOING ON?"
> Oh no, it's HGA
> He is not a happy camper
> "Don't worry, we have this under control
> Entire second level of house practically gone at this point
> Suddenly, I have a genius idea
> Just fill entire house with water
> Go inside and place source blocks covering at least half the house
> Well the fire's gone
> Scooby Doo and I spend next ten minutes blocking up the source blocks and other pesky water leaks
> Spend next five minutes replacing floor
> Front of the house takes another five minutes, spruce it up a bit as an apology gift
> Scooby Doo and I wander off and HGA gives us no thanks even though we repaired his house
> Jokingly say "You're welcome."
> "YOU BURNED DOWN HALF OF MY HOUSE."
> "Yeah, sure we did."
> Scooby Doo and I bored again
> "You wanna play firefighter again?"

I'm pretty sure you can guess what happened next, although we turned around for a much shorter period of time. Only ten seconds, I think.

Anyways, should I tell another?

The following events took place on the FunnyJunk server

> Connect to FJ server with friend (the one I won the Hunger Games with, we'll call him Scooby Doo)
> FJ server is notoriously laggy at this point, but whatever, we still play without much trouble
> Decide to create base of operations
> Get as far away from spawn as we possibly can
> Start digging into the side of a mountain, think it's less noticeable
> Don't use a door, just block up the entrance with dirt
> Plant seeds inside base to reduce need to go outside
> Start mining downwards
> Eventually create living area further underground, reduces the need to go up to the top of our base
> Soon realize we're quickly running out of wood, friend and I go back upstairs
> find all of our crops missing and chests looted (thank Notch it was just basic material like dirt and stone)
> There's a sign where the crops used to be
> It says "Black Midgets" (I don't remember if there was anything else written, but it can't be more important than that)
> Wonder why the Black Midgets never went down the mine shaft, but I don't question it too much
> Fear the Black Midgets for the rest of the game
> Block up entire upstairs area and permanently move underground
> **** , we still don't have any wood
> We get another friend to come on (Friend A, who was unjustly eliminated from the Hunger Games match)
> After a few deaths, he finally makes it to us, brings wood with him
> We live happily for probably an hour
> At one point during this time, Scooby Doo mines his way into an adjacent mine shaft
> Follows it, finds some other guy's loot, and steals most, if not all of it
> I get paranoid for two reasons
> 1 - He's going to find our mine shaft because we're so close together
> 2 - He's going to be super pissed that Scooby Doo stole all of his stuff, and he's going to seek revenge
> Scooby Doo dismisses the idea
> After about an hour, I'm still concerned, but not as much
> About 30 minutes later from that point, we all decide to go get pizza (we usually play
at someone's house, so we're all together when we play)
> Our underground living area was dug into the side of the mine shaft, so we block it up with dirt so it's not noticeable if you're just walking down the corridor
> Keep in mind that this is not the same side Scooby Doo dug into that separated us from the other guy's mine shaft
> Also place all valuable items into our inventories so they can't be looted while we're not online
> Maybe 30-45 minutes pass
> Scooby Doo and Friend A are playing other games
> I quickly log back on to see what materials we had in our chest
> There is a guy standing in our living area
> nope.jpeg
> Quickly log off, tell Scooby Doo that the guy whose stuff he stole was in our base
> Don't know if it was actually that guy, but who else would it have been, there's virtually no other way to know we were there
> Give it about two minutes before I log back on, figure this guy could do whatever he's gonna do in that time span and be out
> Log back on
> I'm dead
> Must've lagged out when logging off, he killed me while I was lagging
> Stole at least 20 diamonds, countless stacks of iron and gold, etc.
> Also broke our beds
> The coordinates we had were for the upstairs area we blocked off to avoid more Black Midget attacks
> We have no way of getting back
> Notch, why have you abandoned me

It's been a couple of months, and I still have not logged back on to the FJ server since that day.

So, what do you guys think? I have more stories to share if you guys are interested.

Question: Is there a space between "Hole" and "Sun" in your name? I don't think FJ allows that, but the formatting makes it look that way to me, which is why I listed your name twice in the comment, one with and one without a space.

Also, it seems like there will be another story tomorrow.
