Plus, only the time after the platforms have come on screen matters anyway, for this situation. Scaling that time zone that matters down to the 2 seconds or so that it takes from the time you begin to see the platforms to the time you jump off (assuming you simply run through the screen, may take longer for those who don't know the level well) makes it rather simple to be very close to exactly replicating your moves. Plus, you don't need to jump at the exact same time every time, you simply need to be close enough to land properly.

That's the problem. They somehow thought waiting for the second platform to drop would set the rhythm for every platform in the set, and all of them were off the screen except for one. Also they wouldn't run threw it in one fluid motion, at some point they always ran back to get speed for the next jump or else they wouldn't make it. That, and even when they did that at a similar pace it would have some drastically different pattern. Even when I pointed that out they disregarded that, so I suppose someone had a bit to much to drink. That, and after I proved my point they shifted their whole argument to "IT'S NOT FUCKING RANDOM, YOU WOULDN'T BE ABLE TO BEAT IT IF IT WAS RANDOM". So, if it isn't 100% random it has to be following some obvious pattern, at least that's what they think.

Funny, the more I think about this the more they seem wrong.

fuckkkkkkkk who caressssssssss. :/

You're talking about the timing of a moving platform in an old video game, for crying out loud. I mean, really. :\


We pressed on. Shortly afterwards, we arrived in a poisonous, post-apocalyptic hell - a sprawling, toxic dumping ground stretching for a mile or two. This is the final resting place for your old TV, computer or mobile phone.

You obviously are not as huge a Mario fan as us...

Bah, too bad I don't have a copy of the disassembly people have made. People have actually disassembled and made a source code for the NES Mario, so I could have actually checked the code for that.
This is going in my sig. :)

I'm craving ice cream right now. What the hell. I shouldn't be, I'm watching my figure :x

Also, I'm really, really dreading my Calculus class this year. I'm very afraid of it raping me in the rectum. I took trig and pre-calc last year... did great in trig but not-nearly-as-great in precalc... made 70s-80s on tests, as opposed to 100s in trig. How bad's Calculus?

Not to to bad...I suck at Trig but Calc iI am good at.

You will learn limit, derivitives and intergrals. (You will use trig eventually)

If you need some help give me a holla and I will dig up my Calc book and help you out.

I'm gonna have calculus this year too (they are assholes and are removing it completely from highschool here, and I didn't want to take it last year because I only wanted to be in the class to learn it (as in waste my time and learn it and not care about my actual mark in the class), but figured it'd be better to have another spare instead.

So long story short, I may also bitch about it.
This is going in my sig. :)

Carpal tunnel is in the wrist itself. I've had what I believe is either a compression of the joint, or early signs of Carpal Tunnel and there was no swelling for me, just a lot of pain in the wrist (right inside the joint, where the nerve is).
This is going in my sig. :)

Yeah, I think that's what it is. Man, it still hurts. I tried to take some pics but they didn't come out so well :<

Also, I just got on facebook, and about 5-6 people I know had 'RIP Jaclyn' as their little headline or whatever. So apparently this Jaclyn girl (who I actually knew moderately decently, and was friends with for a little while early last year) has just died. That's really sad... she graduated last year. She had leukemia I think and I was pretty sure she like recovered from it or something. I guess not. Huh. Life is silly...

edit: her myspace:

edit 2: damn, I really killed the thread, didn't i?
