"War has changed. The age of deterrence has become the age of control... All in the name of averting catastrophe from weapons of mass destruction. And he who controls the battlefield... controls history. War has changed. When the battlefield is under total control... War becomes routine. "-Snake Metal Gear Solid 4

As for Watchmen, it felt as though Synder just decided to jam in as much of the dialouge as he could with no context or reasoning for it. The only thing that he gave his own spin to (and did masterfully) was the beginning part with Bob Dylan summaring the events from the 1930's until the late 80's when the story picks up.

Oy...Metal gear solid.  Once it was cool but these days, it's become almost of a satire of itself.  I now cringe every time someone says a sentence with "on the battlefield" in it as though this were the first time it were ever said...

Ooh, Shane, you write too?  I'll have to take a look at that some time.
I recently heard that the word heretic is derived from the greek work heriticos which means "able to choose"

Yeah, replayed the first one a while ago, and some of it is definitely cheesy. However, did you play 4? Reason I bought a PS3 and it was worth every penny.

I refuse to play 4.  The cut scene length is beyond the pale and it's not because there's so much story to tell, it's because much of the dialogue is horribly long winded and redundant.

All right, people, back to the quotes:

"Anyone who has to demand respect automatically deserves ridicule. If you deserved respect, you'd already have it. You'd be rolling around in it, like a televangelist in other people's money. No, what you deserve is mockery." --Pat Condell

"My freedom is more important than your faith." --Pat Condell

"What I like most about Christianity is that it's not Islam, which is a major bonus in my opinion. Unfortunately, it is Christianity, which kind of takes most of the shine off it for me." --Pat Condell

"I find it quite ironic that some Christians would like to ban the Harry Potter books, in case their children turn to witchcraft and away from Jesus, as opposed to turning to Christianity, and even further away from Jesus." --Pat Condell

"I can assure you that I venerate free speech as highly as anybody on this planet venerates their god or their scripture or their prophet, and any attempt to suppress free speech is deeply insulting and grossly offensive to me on a personal level...Freedom of thought, freedom of speech, freedom of identity: this is my Holy Trinity, each one an intrinsic aspect of my god: Freedom, the holiest of holies. Yes, it bloody well is! It is absolutely sacred and inviolable beyond any negotiation or compromise, now and forever, amen." --Pat Condell

"The time to start defending your freedom is while you've still got it, not after it's gone." --Pat Condell

"Yes because we all know
Private = greedy fucks and broods of Satan that likes to kick babies during their free time.
Public = Omni-benevolent, generous spirits sent by Yahweh." - 11mc22 (being sarcastic in response to that mecher3k socialist woo).

"Communism is a party!" - A (de)motivational picture I saw on Encyclopedia Dramatica.
"When the mob and the press and the whole world tell you to move, your job is to plant yourself like a tree beside the river of truth, and tell the whole worldó'No. You move.'"

Carlin was The Man:

"Keep in mind that Hitler was elected in a full, free democratic election." --George Carlin

"I'm completely in favor of the separation of Church and State. My idea is that these two institutions screw us up enough on their own, so both of them together is certain death." --George Carlin

"I think it's the duty of the comedian to find out where the line is drawn and cross it deliberately." --George Carlin

So is ladyattis. :)

"Because the Venus Project doesn't have the market signal of the price mechanism to direct the efficient allocation of scarce resources and to tell people what needs to be produced, how to produce it, and so on.  China tried it and failed.  The old Soviet Union tried and failed.  But they were very persistent and tried ways of mucking around with it and were that much worse off because of it.  The Zeitgeist Addendum people will be just as disheartened when they try and it doesn't work. It's a failure: get over it."  ladyattis, Corrections and further criticisms of the Venus project

"5 out of 4 people have trouble with fractions." -- A t-shirt I once saw

"Who would the planet be better off without? (a question to TheAmazingAtheist in an interview)

We need a lot less fucking bureaucrats and red tape. Why does everything require a permit and proof of ID and requisition form B-12? My dad has three licenses with three different names and three different ages as a kid because the folks at the DMV just took your word for all of it. Now, some might say that this is a terrible thing - but it was a great thing. It meant that you could start over, that you’re life wasn’t under scrutiny and that your mistakes didn’t haunt you to the grave. People need breathing room and rules that are flexible - I think the cynicism and paranoia of my generation is largely due to this awareness that you are chained to your identity. You have a designation number and your fingerprints are on record and that is your inescapable reality. People don’t feel like people anymore. They feel like cattle, with ID tags in their ears, branded as property of their respective governments." -- TJ's response.
