*takes off sweatpants*


i dont own any sweatpants now that i think of it. i should get some.


They're very comfortable. The pair I'm wearing right now are thin and stretchy, though I have to wear a something under them because my crotch bulges in them. My other pair are thick but I get hot in them easily.

Sweatpants are evil.


Mine won't stay on.

I had that problem once. I wore a pair of shorts over them. Make sure the shorts have a string.

Correct me if I'm wrong here, as I'm not particularly a follower of Christianity.

From my understanding of Christian belief, Jesus isn't exactly like Talos. For one, Talos was at first a human and was turned into God. Jesus, on the other hand, was once the Son of God (God's second-in-command, who was an angel in heaven), then he made the ultimate sacrifice by becoming a man and being born into Earth as such. Jesus was then revered as a prophet until the Jewish people crucified him. But then he was resurrected. Even after death, however, Jesus never became a God, because there is only one God, and that is not Jesus Christ. Sometimes people revere Jesus as a God, when in the actual religious lore, Jesus does not have the supreme power of God. Sure, he does have special angelic abilities, but he does not have the omnipotence of God. If Jesus required any special assistance, he would need to ask God for such. Therefore, it is a mistake to revere Jesus as a God.

On the other hand, worshipping Jesus is very similar to worshipping Talos. Both were men, both were divine figures, and both did good things amongst humans. Both were very virtuous, and both died for the sins of Man (I think Talos did, anyway). However, Talos is revered as a "God amongst Men", which is very different from Jesus the "Messiah". Then, of course, there are the Jewish people who do not believe that Jesus was a Messiah at all, and the Messiah has yet to come. So, there you have two figures that both compliment and contrast each other. Thus, worshipping one is more-or-less like worshipping the other...

What determines whether a game is good is your experience every time you play the game, not the opinions of other people (unless you let it do so).
