    Hello. :D

    Not excatly. I'm just going to quote the Spanish law (which is the one I know best about, and which describes this well):

    "A child is considered born when they leave the mother's womb and survive for at least one day".

    I know what a Caesarean operation is, I was born that way. But the point is, at least our law says absolutely nothing about the way you leave the womb, just requires you to do it. As such, I stand by this: a child isn't alive until it manages to survive outside of another being's body. It makes biological sense for me, it's not just "convenience". And I don't see why that is illogical, please do explain.

    And I think you didn't understand what I was saying (or you didn't want to). If there is a law that considers that, under certain circumstances, foetuses can be aborted, I think that allows people who agree to use that right if they want to, and people who don't agree can downright ignore it.

    After all, there is another law in the US that allows any judge to order anybody to be executed, under certain circumstances. So a person can decide who can be killed or not. Does that mean that the US is an anarchy?

    There is, you know, the idea that a foetus isn't truly alive until, you know, it has been born. In fact, they key question to know whether abortion is acceptable fot your moral system is: when does that bunch of cells become a true human being? You say that from second one and, as such, the idea of killing it at any time is unacceptable. I say "when it has been born", and, as such, it is acceptable for me. It's something that depends entirely on the person and their views. That's why I encourage letting every one choose individually.

    Oh. Anyone with Admin in their user rank should be able to do it, it's just a matter of which ones are most active. Usually Lightning is the one most frequently online.

    You would contact an admin about it, but it's been brought to the attention of the higher staff now, so just sit back and wait a few days and then contact an admin about you having won a blog in a contest in the last Get-Together just so it's on the minds of one of them.

    I don't know terribly much about computer history because it kinda gets glossed over by any place I can read up on it easily. :x

    I don't have the energy to reply to that at the moment.

    The funny thing is with viruses and malware is that experts declared the recreational virus-maker/hacker dead in '08/'09, yet we've seen a resurgence in their prominence since the end of 2010.

    The '90s weren't dominated by Microsoft until the end of the decade. The whole reason Microsoft rose to prominence in the '90s was the fact that Windows could be put on pretty much any system, whereas the Mac OS could only be put on Apple-certified hardware legally, and didn't support the popular x86 architecture in the decade. The proprietary hardware it was put on was also marked up significantly in price. And the Windows OSes of the decade were competent for their era, they just haven't aged well at all.

    Also, if Apple ever gains a near-majority market share in PC OSes again, I am afraid that their security patching teams might not be up to the task of patching fast enough to protect from the increased viruses that would be targeting the Mac OS.

    Just completed customising my profile colours: I give you "Flygon".

    Let me know if you think it's good or horrible.

    Apparently it's a case of a corrupted entry in the user table database which occurred recently. (I also for instance cannot view his profile or anything). There's been a couple of other people with this issue too. =/

    To Snorelacks: a couple of things.

    1) I don't have anything competitive in generation V. IV only I'm afraid.
    2) Though I know full well you're a Tournament competitor at the moment, your username and icon both link to a "user does not exist" page and on other posts with your name you're marked as a Guest. But I've seen you before, you're the guy with a shiny Scizor as the icon and "Green Pokemon are cool" in the signature block, right? Or am I mixing things up?

... is like being slapped in the face with an old and very heavy fish. Insult and injury in one very smelly package.

So what do I mean by this? Well, there are a few key elements. Much of it is Nintendo's fault. To be fair, they're not entirely to blame. Just "mostly".

The Dream World has got to be the worst thing to happen to Pokemon since Mr. Mime. For a multitude of reasons.

Firstly, the Dream World just sucks. Nintendo expects us to do the following in...

Odd to put a story in a blog post instead of the creative writing sub-forum, but it's old stuff, I'm not going to change it in any way, or do anything stupid like write a sequel; it's shared memorabilia, if you like.

The given theme for the story was "Cast Aside". The first thing that crossed my mind was a scene with Tinkerbell and Captain Hook in Disney's not-too-bad adaptation of Peter Pan. But, never mind that for now.

Below the story itself are some notes about what...

This may be the first mass Pokemon eulogy on the entire site. Or perhaps not. But I have to say "goodbye" somewhere, so I can let it go.

On the 7th of October, I'd been back in university for my final year, and... although this had never really happened before in years 1 and 2... my future prospects seemed especially grim and I felt unable to cope. My mum came to see me the next day and offered to take me home for the weekend so I could recover and march once again unto the world....

Goodness, what a surprise, says the PokeCommunity at large. We were expecting it to be about marzipan. However, I'm going to be very specific with this one. This is about the two virtually exclusive natures of Pokemon which seem more or less at each others' throats, with two very different ideologies warring upon one another. Aha, now that I'm using violent imagery, I have your interest.

On one side, we have the Competitors. That's probably most of you reading...
