Just interesting to note that all of these things are very closely related (the 2nd and 4th not for sure, but most likely). You might want to consider the actual tangible benefits of not dealing with criminals, even if you don't care about the moral and legal issues.

Incidentally "Hamumu is changing" also can be linked to them. If it weren't for pirates, I wouldn't feel the need to switch to a web-centric game format, and I might not be in financial need of making major changes all around (both for direct reasons, and due to changes in the industry resulting from them).

Actions have consequences, big and small. Think about the choices you make, don't just go for instant gratification. My rule is "what if everybody made this choice?"

Two:
-YouTube's beta channels are cramped and slow.
-4 Mafia Wars requests, and 58 other requests
The second one is Facebook.

Actually the year is going relatively well for me. But I've had a rough ten years or so.

This year is going fine for me too, although the beginning of the year was absolutely horrible for me. But now it seems that things have gotten better. Sure I have a few complaints, but who doesn't, its not enough to make this year bad for me.

And not to forget global warming, swine flu and the recession.

Don't forget that awesomeness is in the eye of the beholder.

What science stuff, Fourwind? I was pretty impressed by the new moon orbiting spaceship, LRO, which I saw vids about on Youtube.

I think it's time for somebody to make a thread called ''2009: The year of everything going awesome'' and point out all the achievements of 2009, just for comparison.

you might want to be a bit more specific, mercury has been known about for a long time, and that's a liquid metal, also, metal is constantly being liquified to make jewlery and such. so unless you meant something else, nothin new there.

Personally, I'm waiting for a material that becomes superconducting at room temperate. Why? Because this is what a liquid-nitrogen one can do

I like Mercury, both as the planet and as the substance. Did you know Mercury (substance) had a game for it? It's fun and challenging. I would call it a 3D platformer puzzle game. I think it was called 'Mercury Meltdown'.

I would prefer to think of 2009 as the the year of strangeness. Death is not a really sad thing if you think of it in other ways apart from the general perception.

This year is going to be excellent I think.

-- I'm going to be able to sell my music/graphics/games (finally get some money for my hobbies, I can be a Mike Hommel! Yay! Best job in the world)
-- Mike released the Kid Mystic map editor which is one of the most amazing things that just happened, a dream come true, I really was dreaming about a kid mystic map editor (which I sadly can't download even though I own the game).
-- I purchased another computer solely for my gaming needs! An IBM S51 (memory express had a whole slew of them for cheap).
-- I added more tiles into the Rayman map editor (something I've always wanted to do)
etc etc etc

Obviously my quirky interests and priorities vastly differ from others'. But this is great! I think I might just mail Mike a dollar for releasing the kid mystic editor! And if I actually can download it, I might put another dollar in... ;)

Sometimes you need to look at the positive things in life, find your interests, key to them, and, maybe, they'll come true! I'm so happy that all the negative things don't bother me.

Some things in life are bad
They can really make you mad
Other things just make you swear and curse.
When you're chewing on life's gristle
Don't grumble, give a whistle
And this'll help things turn out for the best...
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

If life seems jolly rotten
There's something you've forgotten
And that's to laugh and smile and dance and sing.
When you're feeling in the dumps
Don't be silly chumps
Just purse your lips and whistle - that's the thing.
And...always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the light side of life...

For life is quite absurd
And death's the final word
You must always face the curtain with a bow.
Forget about your sin - give the audience a grin
Enjoy it - it's your last chance anyhow.
So always look on the bright side of death
Just before you draw your terminal breath

Life's a piece of junk
When you look at it
Life's a laugh and death's a joke, it's true.
You'll see it's all a show
Keep 'em laughing as you go
Just remember that the last laugh is on you.
And always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the right side of life...
(Come on guys, cheer up!)
Always look on the bright side of life...
Always look on the bright side of life...
(Worse things happen at sea, you know.)
Always look on the bright side of life...
(I mean - what have you got to lose?)
(You know, you come from nothing - you're going back to nothing.
What have you lost? Nothing!)
Always look on the right side of life...

-Monty Python
