Not at the Dinner Table / Re: Sexual Orientation

Apparently, being attracting to trans people makes on pan. Wonder what someone who's attracted to the opposite sex and transsexual people is called.

So, uh...I can't for the life of me seem to understand the difference between bisexual and pansexual. Today, I saw someone say "bisexuality is being attracted to two genders, pansexuality is being attracted regardless of gender" and I couldn't understand the difference. Why would gender matter if you're bisexual, considering you're attracted to both genders? I'm not trying to be a rude dick or anything like that. I just don't get it, but hopefully someone more enlightened can kindly help me wrap my head around the difference.

I also don't really get what "panromantic" is supposed to entail.

Only confirmed for Europe so far. But there's a Nintendo Direct tomorrow that'll probably have a segment about ORAS, so maybe?

My original N64 controller's analog stick is too loose to do pretty much anything now. I think we got some better ones a couple years ago when a friend of my brother's gave us Mario Kart, but I'm not sure; I haven't played in a while.

We didn't have many N64 games (no Zelda, no Mario Party, no Mario Kart, no Goldeneye), and I never had friends over to play anything (also, I never had friends), but the N64 does have some of the strongest nostalgic memories for me, mostly from the smell of the plastic of the third-party controller I usually used (I think it was called a SharkPad?), the crinkling sound of the futon-chair thing I usually sat in to play it, and the manuals -- the vibrant colors in the Banjo-Kazooie manual, the feel of the non-glossy paper manual for Yoshi's Story, and the descriptions of the planets in Star Wars Episode I Racer. And the time I made a team in NBA Jam 99 of all the kids who bullied me and made them all really short with 0 for all their stats and made them play a team comprising me (all stats at 100) and the handful of basketball players whose names I sort of recognized.

My transparent purple N64 controller and GBC are still two of my favorite Nintendo items.  I'd love to see Nintendo go back to transparent systems and controllers.

I was way late to the N64 party; I got mine in 2004 for my twelfth birthday. It came with two controllers, one blue and one yellow, and they were both pretty awful, joystick-wise. After I used them for a few years, they hardly worked at all. I eventually took the yellow one apart for science, and the blue one is still kicking around somewhere. A few years ago I decided to get a new one. A used game store near my house sells some controllers that are near-identical to the original Nintendo ones, but I've used those before and I don't like how stiff the buttons are. Fortunately, I found someone selling some original ones online. I got a transparent purple one for about $15, and that's the only one that I use now.

I bought my N64 used.. sometime 1998, I think. With Mario Kart 64 and another controller. They were both grey colored controls, and I'm going to assume they were used also. Upon playing the first Mario Party, the P1 controller had to be replaced (and I subsequently had to stop playing games for a week), so surprise, we got another grey one.

We eventually got two more controllers over the course of the N64's run: a green one (for my sister since that was her favorite color at the time) and a yellow one (my favorite color, and still one of my favorites). All the controllers have henceforth lasted through all the rough gaming we've done.

I've got 7 or 8 controllers for the N64. The third part ones didn't break as easily -- the joysticks possessed a bit more integrity -- yet they never felt as "natural" as the Nintendo controllers. Hardly, if ever, did I use them. For whatever reason, my first clear green controller is the best one I have, and it's closing in on 17 or 18 years.

I've heard that's its possible to harvest the joystick from the Gamecube controller and implant it in the N64 controller; but I don't know if I trust my skill with a project like that.

I also wonder if something like this would work. http://www.amazon.com/Redesigned-REPLACEMENT-Joystick-Controller-Thumbstick/dp/B009MRZAUC

Go to that big castle, wait for it to be daytime again, go inside and find a little girl with red hair, go to the area where there's a big white castle in the background that takes you outside to a field with climbable vines nearby, talk to the little girl with red hair until you get an egg from her, sneak past the guards to get to the big white castle, wait until night passes and it's day again and the egg item will become a chicken, use the chicken to wake him up, push the blocks in a way so you can jump to the other side of the moat, crawl inside the castle through the little hole that's directly in front of/below you, sneak past the guards inside until you reach the garden with Zelda, talk to her until you get the Zelda's Letter item from her, talk to Impa and get Zelda's Lullaby from her, then go to that village that's across the little bridge in the field, find the gate with a guard next to it that's blocking the path to a mountain, give him the letter, go back into the big castle with the drawbridge (The area inside is the Market, by the way), go into the store with the bearded dude's face on it, buy the Hylian Shield but don't equip it yet (if you don't have the money just cut grass, there's some grass to cut in the Market), go back to Kokiri Forest, find the entrance to the Lost Woods, navigate through there (hint: listen for the music to not get quieter as you walk through an entrance), find the "Sacred Forest Meadow" area, fight through the enemies and navigate through the maze to find Saria after walking up some stairs and going through a corridor, talk to her and get Saria's Song, go all the way back to that mountain in that village (called Death Mountain by the way), go up it, find the door that shut, play Zelda's Lullaby while you're standing on the rug, then go inside and play Saria's Song to the guy in there and trigger a funny cutscene and get the Goron's Bracelet, find an area where there's a bomb flower and a goron curled up, throw the bomb down to blow up the rocks blocking the cave down below (If you mess up, just wait for the bomb flower to regrow, which doesn't take long), go back down, enter the cave, use a bomb flower to blow up the wall you see as soon as you're inside, and voila, you're at the second dungeon! Equip the Hylian Shield when you get inside, as lava and fire will burn your Kokiri Shield.


Got all that? I'm a little hazy at the part where you talk to the little redheaded girl (whose name is Malon), but otherwise that should be accurate.
