Netflix To Lose 1 Million Subscribers

invictus Right on the mark. (349 comments)

This comment hits the mark right on the head.

It was bad enough before how much content was actually available to stream versus by mail, especially compared to (not really competing, I guess alternative is more apropos) services e.g. XBL. Now that service is losing even more titles due to licensing issues with Starz. What terrible timing to try and spin a price increase as something consumers actually want, when the service you're charging more for is actually LOSING VALUE. This makes no sense on the face of it, especially in today's atmosphere of belt tightening and budget trimming.

I spent 10 minutes looking for my old login information just to see if I had mod points to promote this comment, alas I had none.

Tips For Incoming 2002 Freshmen

invictus purely out of curiosity, which one? (143 comments)

that, and to second your comment.

a lot of people look down on frats for no good reasons, a lot of people hold them in esteem for no great reason either. the best advice i can give to anyone, is don't listen to other people's opinions. wait a semester and see how life is like outside of greek life, rush multiple fraternities to get a feel for each (different organizations attract different types of people, don't get pressured into joining an organization, complete the pledge program, and find out that you hate the people you're brothers with). and if you rush and don't feel like you don't want to be a part of any of it, then don't. make up your own mind. for me, i went to school saying that frats suck, im too much an individual for any of that crap, and that my studies are too important for any of that animal house style bullshit. next semester i ended up pledging TKE and it was one of the best decisions of my life. sure, i partied. sure i met a lot of people... but i still had friends outside of the greek world that i did things with, i still got good grades (that semester i ended up with a 3.8), and i was even in a relationship with one girl who cursed 'fratboys' up and down until she met me. you'll meet a lot of people in college. you will be exposed to a lot of things and a lot of ideas both good and bad. if i can myself give you one piece of advice it would be this: (no, not sunscreen), make up your own mind. form your own opinions. and don't be so quick to write off other people or their decisions.

Yay! I've found my old login information, which I haven't used it afaik in about 9 years (Aug 2002 - Sep 2011); so much for not writing user/pass combos down I guess. The next step is getting back on TotalFark one of these days (not that I have the time available that would be drained by doing so).

Additionally; Dear younger, more foolish me:
Pygmies and siberian jungle tigers [sic] would obviously be eaten by the Grues in the dark! Not to mention that 'siberian jungle' is oxymoronic; may as well call it the tropical tundra. A hollow voice says, "Fool".


few days to go, but grades were decent
