#19847 The Heinz Dilemma

Posted by Macflea on 15 August 2013 - 11:45 PM

You know, I wasn't going to post this, partly because it won't make a blind bit of difference but what the hell. According to his latest blog post us b i t c h e s like to read about ourselves because we're so narcissistic. Well, since he himself is a self confessed narcissist I figure he'd want to read about himself a bit more, as I have no doubt he still visits this page as a 'guest'. I originally posted this as a comment on the blog. Surprisingly it didn't make it through editing onto the page..

Here we go:

 

 
 
Well that was an insightful read. Don't hold back at all, will you?
 
I am, however, interested in some of what you have said. You have accused us of making things up, twisting words, accusing you of things yet reading through this I am finding it is you who are twisting words and putting words into our mouths that weren't there.
 
I should feel honoured, I am sure, to find that the Emperor quoted humble me, yet imagine my surprise when I found I had been misquoted! (Note to you; don't put something in speech marks unless you say it word for word, because then it no longer becomes a quote, it is a paraphrase and you are being as misleading as you say we ourselves are).
 
In your own words (and this is a direct quote):
"Wresting statements, quoting things not said, and heavy umbrage?  You guessed it – woman"
 
Or yourself. You choose.
 
Direct quote from you:
"Their particular brand of defense deals mainly in groupthink (“Everyone feels this way!”), name-calling (“You’re arrogant and disrespectful!”), blatant hypocrisy (“You’d better respect and be nice to us, but we don’t have to do the same for you!”), blanket assumptions (“You probably hate gay people too, don’t you?”), mockery (“You’re not as smart as you think!”), attempts at incitement (“No wonder your wife left you!”), disregarding/intentional wresting of things you say in order to cram it into what they think is a valid point (“I respect and treat kindly the jerks at work…” [after I'd quite clearly said that tolerance and civility was the only thing due them] “…because bosses don’t put up with people that act like assholes!”  <– See there?  Apparently, civility and tolerance are now enough to brand one an “*******”.), and of course the “threat” of exclusion from their “venerable” MC server (“Well, I’m not going to vote you in, and I don’t know anyone that will!”)."
 
Not one of these 'quotes' is a direct quote from the forum, in fact many of these have been re-worded to suit what you want them to say.
 
For example:
"You probably hate gay people too, don't you?" is the 'quote' you gave. What was actually said was this; "Note: I'm not sure why you think that just because I live in NZ I'd be less inclined to see your viewpoint re. the subservience of women in marriage as pretty appalling. This is a country that was the first to given women the vote, and has just legalised gay marriage (in the most moving way). It's a country full of people for whom equality is a fundamental principle, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, etc.)"
 
Please enlighten me as to how that translates as an accusation. Sexuality was not brought into it as an accusation but as an example that NZ is a country that prides itself on equality for ALL PEOPLE.
 
 
The one that REALLY interests me, though, is this:
"2. “So you think a marriage in which both the man and the woman work – the woman is ‘no good anymore’?”
——-> For the record, I’d not said anything even slightly resembling that statement prior to it being made (Wresting statements, quoting things not said, and heavy umbrage?  You guessed it – woman.)."
 
Ah, we're back to this again. Well, let me directly quote what you said to obtain that response:
 
"The only regions where marriages (may also be read as: women and the societies that raise them) are any good any more are the ones in which the man is still held in high esteem as the leader of the household and primary breadwinner."
 
I would argue that that DOES 'slightly' resemble the statement. You imply that any marriage (or 'woman') is no good if the husband is not the leader and primary breadwinner. The actual reply to your post, not the one you 'quoted' was this:
 
"So to sum it up you think that any household where both man and woman works the woman is "no good anymore" and marriage should be entirely for the benefit of the man?"
 
Firstly, it's not a statement, it's a question. Secondly, your rant after that misquote is quite the achievement. Congratulations. I hope it didn't hurt you too much.
 
I am interested about your view of the workforce, however. You think women who have to work in a traditional marriage should have stay at home jobs? Yet if that was the case it would sting you in the butt when you end up in hospital and have no one to look after you because all the alpha males are too alpha to be a nurse.
 
Finally there is this misquote:
"4. “My husband makes less money and knows how to cook!”"
 
When what was actually said was this:
 
"*goes to hug her husband, who makes less money and knows how to cook*"
 
Which you can see was not actually a statement directed at you but a general statement implying an action and actually the ONLY thing she said in this whole debacle. It was not part of a debate, it was not part of an argument directed at yourself so to attack her is poor form if you really were desiring an "honest debate" as you put it.
 
Ah, well it's good to get that off my chest. I know it won't do a blind bit of difference, it won't affect how you think, how you view this forum, how you view the world and marriage, but it sure as hell does make me feel better.

I'll put it this way....master your own state of perception or get lost. Because where my time is involved it is my world. Yes Ray is paying the tab. But I will not put my energy in what does not resonate with me. So I will not be here if things don't shape up.

#18816 The big "move-horse-to-main-world"-adventure!

Posted by Sun_Exit on 06 August 2013 - 05:01 AM

Hey, thought we'd just share this little adventure and some pictures!

(Part 2 of the adventure here )

 

(Team 3's arrival here )
 
After a few hours of searching the wilds, Root found a few horses to bring back to the hub. Since horses don't seem to spawn in the main world, Merv came up with the idea to move some horses to the main world through the wilds fortress end portal. However figuring out how to do this practically was a MASSIVE work load!  Eventually we (Merv, Ras, Ray, Red, Moon and Sun (hope I'm not forgetting anyone)) got it to work! Here's what we did,
 
1. We made a plan how to send the horses through the wild fortress's end portal - to end.
2. Then from the end's spawning spot, to the main hub portal - to main world.
 
 
 
First we prepped all the portals, fired them up and basically tried to figure out how to do things practically.
 
3V6dh.jpg
3V6g6.jpg
 
 
 
The drop hole needed water to reduce the fall impact.
 
3V6iy.jpg
 
 
 
Then we fixed transport roads, like a new tunnel at the end, a VERY long road over the ocean in the wild, etc.
3V6li.jpg
 
 
 
We did a test with a wilds cow first. We pushed it down the hole and after a couple of successful teleports and transports all the way to the main world it is now alive and well, breeding with main world cows at the public cow pen!
 
 
Ater that we managed to bring a couple of horses through too.
Trust me - IT WASN'T EASY!
Leads breaking, horses falling off walkways into the water, disappearing etc - horrible!
But eventually they made it through and are now standing safely, with good health at the public stable in the main world!
 
3V6o6.jpg
 
 
 

It was a great 60G adventure, great fun and an awesome team work! :)
 
3V6pI.jpg
 
 
 
And yey -  everyone can now breed their own horse in the main world!   :D
Just check out the public stable west of hub!
 
Here are some good breeding tips from Merv! : http://tinyurl.com/oye5p2y
 
/Cheers from Root, Merv, Ras, Ray, Red, Moon and Sun!

Disclaimer: This is an attempt to avoid participation in any said player trackers, any resemblance to actually participating in such activities is purely coincidental, and shall not be interpreted as cooperation with the Public Player Tracker Act. Any future participation shall be regarded as against ones will, adding additional annoyingly small text from here on is only to increase the amount of fine print added to this disclaimer to annoy old people with bad vision, continuing to read anything beyond this point is pure sillyness. But if you insist then so be it as more text will be randomly inserted to create a long paragraph with no actual meaning or relevance. Furthermore if you continue to read this let it be known that you have no life and probably smell funny too. If you wish to quote such psycho babble then your even crazier than the original author of this post. Perhaps to keep the joke going some other person can come up with their own overly long legal babble letter of disapproval of Ray's abusive administrator activities. Anywho continuing on about nothing worth reading how about a really long joke that no one is likely to read. - A little boy sits at the table finishing eating dinner with his family, his dad notices that he seems to be down in the dumps and asks his son "what is the matter"? His son looks his dad square in the eyes and says "i have a school project that i don't know how to do", the dad says "maybe i can help you with it, what is the project"? The son says "well i need to write a sentence explaining the definition of politics". The dad gets a confused look on his face and says "gee son that is a tough one, but maybe we can take our family as an example, everyday i go to work and earn a wage to take care of our family, you can say i manage to keep enough money in the bank to keep us living happily, so consider me Management. Your mother takes care of all your needs and she also does the grocery shopping, pays the bills, and talks to your teachers at school, she governs all the aspects of our lives so consider her Government, the maid does our laundry, cleans the house, and prepares all our meals, everything she does is work so consider her the Working Class. You son have all your needs taken care of by myself, your mother, and the maid, since we take care of you we shall consider you the People. And your baby brother well he is still pretty young so just consider him the Future" "do you understand"? the dad asks. The son says "no not at all, it is confusing" the dad says "that is OK son, go brush your teeth and get to bed we can talk about it in the morning... The boy goes to sleep, later that night he is awoken by the cries of his baby brother so he goes to see what is wrong, he notices his brother has soiled his diaper so he heads to his parents room, inside he finds his mother sound asleep, he shakes her and shakes her but to no avail so he finally gives up. Noticing his dad isn't in bed he heads to the maids room, inside he can hear noises, so he knocks on the door, no one seems to notice, again he knocks, still no one answers, so he peeks threw the keyhole and inside he sees his dad having sex with the maid. Well being his baby brother had quit crying and no one seemed to pay attention to him he decided to go back to bed. In the morning he sees his dad and says "I know the definition of politics now dad" the dad says "that is great son, tell me in your own words what it is" So the son says "Well while Management is screwing the Working Class the Government is sound asleep, meanwhile the People are being completely ignored and the Future is full of ****! - That concludes this very long meaningless disclaimer, any other questions refer to the Public Player Tracker Act, Annotated Code of SixtyGig, Server Administrative Article ("SG") 06-2013 et seq.,

#39282 Status of SixtyGig; and Minecraft 1.8. What to do?

Posted by DrCrowtron on 08 May 2015 - 12:14 PM

I vote for making the stations 3D: 50 blocks below current and 50 blocks above. This would mean we would need to design an elevator system and add 50 stations. I also vote that we revert to 1.2 but with only 1 Tekkit mod of Stacy's choosing. Finally, I demand - DEMAND - reparations from Panem for the rebellion genocide of May 9th. It may also be a good idea to have our chat have an accent consistent with Dr. Rockso.

Posted by Macflea on 08 May 2015 - 07:52 AM

I'm good with whatever idea....I mean evil! Yes I'm evil.  I haunt people. Make it crazy. Yes that's my preference.

 

Seriously though..... it seems to me 'where their is a game involved...boredom has dominion'. I will have no part of it. I am not a 'gamer'. I won't say I will never play MC ever again. But I will not fail to speak my mind either. I am disgusted how easily people get bored while so many build their hearts out...Not to mention the 1 hand full of players who worked so hard on the rail system.....and in the end...the ones who are bored have the more say? I have no time for any of this. I will spank your ass before I am going to invest one more hour of my time building here for people to just say "I'm bored we need a reset .....we need a new map...we need 1.8...whatever" **** you!

 

Flame, people are not all the same. Some like building massive builds and take ages to plan, some build smaller as the wind takes them. Others just build a farm. People are different. That's just part of community in game and out, if you don't have time for it and don't want part of it that's fine, no one is forcing you, but you cannot attack other people simply because their playing style differs to yours.

#22952 THE BIG VOTE 2013: SixtyGig 6.0

Posted by LadyEh on 25 September 2013 - 07:37 PM

I voted for Plan 2 simply because I would have loved to avoid seeing the absolute blow out that went on in this thread for 11 pages.  We snapped at each other, pleaded for an in-between solution, and at the worst, players are leaving.

 

I didn't care what happened to the map, my stacks of diamonds, or my builds.  But other players care about those things, and  I do care about those players' feelings.

 

There's a big difference between "pity" and "empathy."  Pity is when I compare myself to you and feel as though I am in a much better situation.  Empathy implies that I know how you're feeling as well as what you're thinking while maintaining my own emotional and intellectual integrity.  I'm not pitying those in Plan 2, I'm empathizing.

 

I felt I would be wasting my vote on an "I don't care," when I did care, I cared about people being crushed by the idea of a clean reset.  Plan 2 kept the most people happy.  I want everyone to be happy.

#22169 THE BIG VOTE 2013: SixtyGig 6.0

Posted by Koplee on 12 September 2013 - 04:54 PM

We have to go with the majority

 

Actually, no you don't...

 

Given that it's your server, for which you pay the running costs, and you do all of the work to keep it running, you could do whatever you wanted to do (and, if we want to stay here, we'd just have to suck it up!)

 

The very fact that you've asked us to vote, and that you're going to follow the majority decision (even though you weren't expecting it), is the reason that I'm very happy to be a member here.

I love using the Ros-lo-seum as a unit of measurement!

 

"How big is the Island?"

"Oh, about 4 Ros-lo-seums"

 

"That guy owns a 10 Ros-lo-seum farm outside of town."

 

"The emancipated slaves were promised 40 Ros-lo-seums and a mule."

 

This could work!!!

#21587 Minecraft, SixtyGig, Your Stuff, and You.

Posted by Rayvolution on 06 September 2013 - 09:25 AM

Here's a crazy idea if this hypothetical reset/cleanslate happened: Let's build something EPIC in creative mode?

 

Imagine this: (While we wait for 1.7)

- If we reset, I backup the map, put it up for download.

- We load a brand new map, no structures.

- Everyone is put in pure-vanilla creative mode (No worldedit commands, etc)

- We plan the largest, most epicyest build ever in the history of SixtyGig

- Challenge ourselves to finish it before the reset

- Publish it on PMC, Curse and anywhere else for fun. (Either on my account or one we make specifically for SG, probably my account since my Texture Pack will help give it more exposure)

- Use it as an advertising tool for the server with videos and what not

- ????

- Profit!

 

I think that would be a blast, and a fresh change to our usual grind. If we DO reset, this would be the time to do a cool server-wide project. Something like an entire medieval city, or something totally off the wall.
