: No, I was hoping for people to take a little interest. Yeah, I was poking fun, but please remember...it's ALL FOR fun and fun alone.
And fun it is! I've certainly enjoyed them. Just when I thought I knew everything about Indiana Jones, here comes this contest and puts me in my place. I LIKE a challenge, and even though I've accused Adam of "ruining my life", I'm glad he's put in all this effort into these games.
:To hear someone use words like "fags" really is unneccesary for a variety of reasons: 1.) I am straight, thank you...but I take offense at this because some of the best people I have ever known and worked with in my life (be it in college, film, etc.) just happen to be gay, and I don't appreciate such filthy and obviously hurtful comments 2.) Such language is crude, rude, uncalled for and not neccessary 3.) It demonstrates an eighth-grade locker room mentality that I hope surely doesn't reflect the sensitivity and tolerance of the young people in this country.
I think Adam's right. This kind of talk sets things all the way back to the Dark Ages.
: : Everyone, if you have time, do my contest! Sorry, no prizes though.
: : Q. Who is the biggest nerd on the board?
: : A. Adam
: Are you expecting me to DISAGREE with this? Yeah, I am an Indy nerd...and I say it with pride. But I'm not trying to make myself out to be better than anyone else. Again, the contest was designed for FUN.
And fun it is! Adam, ignore him. I for one thank you for doing this stuff. I may have been a little insulting and humourous in the beginning, but that's because I'm just arrogant. I think we all are arrogant a little bit.
