Almost 5'7''. Technically I'm 5'6'' and something, but I"m closer to 5'6'' than 5'7''.

150 (6'1 height)

120

Wow you seem a bit too underweight (which isn't necessarily a bad thing, especially since I used to be underweight, but I've gained pounds) for a 19 year old white male. Just out curiosity, how tall are you?

About 5'7''. And yeah, I'm pretty scrawny.

Yes, of course. It's one of the best possible uses of American military power.

Someplace fairly warm, not too densly populated, and at least somewhat friendly to libertarianism? Nevada, maybe?

10  General Politics / Political Debate / Re: If Woodrow Wilson were alive today, which party would he be affiliated with? on: Today at 12:40:26 am
He'd still be a Democrat. I think most Presidents from the last century would be in their same party. Eisenhower is the only one that probably wouldn't be.

Teddy Roosevelt? William Taft?

Not from the last century.

Most people would think "last century" would refer to the whole 20th century. At least, that how I usually see people use terms like that...

Yes, they are the more left-wing major American political party. Trying to
measure left-wing vs. right-wing on some sort of worldwide political spectrum is pointless.

Would've lost Upper South,West Coast,Northeast and Plains if JFK didn't pass CRA.Goldwater was for gay marriage and supported civil rights.

Which I'm sure was a big political issue in 1964...

So you'd want to live in one of the most racist places in the U.S. just because it gets less snow.

Yes. I mean, as horrible as it sounds, I know weather is going make much more of a difference to my personal comfort than people's racial opinions will.

Pixar and Studio Ghibli supported slavery and segregation in the 1860s.
Um, no.  I have nothing against Studio Ghibli; in fact, I admire the fact that they're trying to keep traditional animation and animation techniques alive in the CGI age. 

Other than the Lion King, the Pixar movies (with the exception of the cars/assorted talking vehicles movies, Toy Story 2, and The Incredibles which were HMs), and Bambi, all of Disney's movies have been HMs.
I don't know how you can think ANY Pixar films other than Toy Story 1-3 are FMs.  And with the exception of Mulan, The Princess and the Frog, and possibly Tangled and Frozen (which I still need to see), nearly every Disney film has been an HM.

Really? So you don't like Wall-E or Up? Why not?
I've never seen Wall-E, and I don't care to see it.  I saw Up with my little cousins when it first came out, but I thought it was the same old Pixar/CGI formula (post-Toy Story): cold, lifeless animation stuffed with vapid, juvenile, grade school garbage.  I miss seeing traditional animation on the big screen.  CGI is like saltwater; the more you drink, the more thirsty you get.

Seriously? Even people I know who don't normally like animation liked Up. I fail to see how this is lifeless or juvenile.
I thought that scene was decent, but I just thought, "Oh, that's sad."  On the other hand, I cry whenever I see Dumbo's mother locked in the "Mad Elephant" cage or Bambi's mother get killed by the hunter.  I would have been more sad if Carl's wife had died later in the film rather than at the beginning.  She only appears in the film for a few minutes; we don't get time to be acquainted with her.  It's almost as if Pixar intentionally added that scene in an attempt to shed its "kiddie" image. 

Traditional animation also has a warmth and life that CGI simply cannot match.  It can come close (e.g. Toy Story), but it can't reach the same level.  I wish I could find Jerry Beck's comments on the opening scenes of Up, because it summarized this well.

Interesting. It seems like the problem has less to do with the quality of Pixar's films, and more to do with your hatred of CGI as a medium.

Best: Gamecube
Worst: Xbox 360. N64 also get's an honorable mention, but only on the few games that require using both the L and Z buttons. It's fine otherwise.

All horrible states in this nation vote Republican, but not all Republican states are horrible states. Texas, North Carolina, and Alaska have their charms.

Last time I checked, Democrats usually do pretty well in the horrible cold places, like New England and the upper Midwest.
