You know what's the actual sad thing here?
That you can buy a ******* real gun for this cheap.
Not reeealy... Considering the massive surplus of guns some nations have (coughRussiacough), getting an old Mosin-Nagant for under $100 from a sporting goods store isn't out of the question.
THIS IS GLORIOUS!!!!!
I wanted to buy legal music, so I went for iTunes. iTunes though lately recently upgraded their music quality to 256kbps AAC/.m4a or somewhere there. When I bought a K-On! CD I compared it to my iTunes K-On! songs and virtually found no difference. Plus, the icons for my music files were blue in .m4a instead of red.
I found out there was a nero AAC encoder for Foobar2000, and found out it was tons better than the paid converter I was using (xilisoft).
It offers VBR 400kbps Q.100 encoding. The plugin includes 512kbps ABR, but I don't find a point in that because it annoys me when the bitrate keeps changing during playback.
Lol, legally buying downloads of music... Ok.jpg
I agree that the difference between high bitrate lossy and lossless isn't really audible that much, especially with AAC.
Ah ok I see, I actually prefer ABR because then when the song needs it, it gets more bits and when it doesn't, it saves space.
Believe it or not, most 'hunters' and gun wielders in the USA are respectable, do it right etc.
The convervative countryside(read80% of Murica) has roots in this stuff, from what I've seen, is pretty respectful, and follow the legal rules etc for tagging, how to 'kill' with the least pain etc etc.
The urban Murica is generally the one with the bigger issues.
Oh I'm sure they are. I was referring to people who buy a gun, pretending they need it to go hunting and instead use it to point it at people who happen to step on their lawn.
So, are pupils in the US required to learn a foreign language?
Here you have to know at least one to pass middle school and two to pass highschool.
A good majority of people don't do that. Even if they do, they usually at least have enough of a brain to holler at the people and tell them to GTFO. If said trespasser has half a brain, he usually will just leave. Problem solved.
In our school district we didn't have to take any foreign languages, but in order to get into uni I had to take one or two years (forgot now). We got the massive selection of Spanish, French, German, and sign language...
Ehhhh, school districts have their faults but I'd say they're a necessary evil for America just because of how geographically and ethnically spread out we are. The needs of Bowei's old high school are totally different from mine, for example.
Have you ever actually been trained to hunt at all?
We had a rifle marksmanship class at my HS that I took where we learned about hunting and got our hunting safety certifications. I can say killing an animal with a bow and arrow is MUCH MUCH more difficult than with a rifle. To the point where bow hunters get extended hunting seasons compared to rifles so they have a marginally higher chance of killing an animal.
It's not a good thing when a Japanese song sounds like American pop... >_<
On HyoukaWarning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
And thus the issue is that I can't but help to be conflicted by if Hyouka is mearley a show with a plan to be mellow with mystery's that realizes it needs Chitanda cuteness or else nobody would give a rats ass about it, or if it is a show that is great at execution and is about to meld everything together.
Mostly the latter, IMO.
I haven't experimented with it very much (since I have just been using my seedbox at home for torrents) but I tried once and they saw I was using bittorrent and throttled that port in a matter of a few minutes, from 10MBps to dial-up speeds... :/
I once believed that head-fi was filled with innocent music-filled minds away from the hentai/anime/loli infested 4chan image boards.
That belief was just 10 minutes ago.
