    dont you just hate it when you have to use google to look something up.
    it makes me feel like the biggest ass ever.

    i finally got tired of seeing the word "SHUPMS" everywhere.
    everybody talking about "SHUMPS", and i havent got the foggiest
    what they are talking about. so i had to give in and google it.

    Shumps.... Shoot-Em-Ups. oh......DOH. i just call them Shooters.

    Shooters != Shoot-Em-Ups.

    Google is epic, I love it.

    Yea, I miss the days when we had to go the library to get any sort of information about the world.

    Stupid search-engine convenience, meh.

    You'd feel a bigger ass if you used Bing.

    I google things all the time, it's really damn convenient. Even at work, i'll often google questions I can't answer. I dunno how the hell we lived our lives before google.

    I'm half a step away from treating google like Yulia's Score, and googling all my questions about life. "What should I have for dinner?!" "Should I wear socks with sandals?"

    Well hey, duckduckgo.com is always a better search engine because of the no-tracking policy it has.

    Well here, I'm sure this will make it allll better. :ha:

    Anyway, Google is the best around. An old teacher of mine constantly MADE us use ask.com of all things for research papers and I honestly couldn't find any good info on what I was doing.

    Actually I used to call' em Shoot-Em-Ups back in the 80's, then sometime in the late 90's / 2000s I became familiar with the term Shumps.

    Also I wouldn't call a Shump just shooter, the term might be misleading as a shooter can be Time Crisis or even Call of Duty.
    In this case, Shumps are generally vertical or horizontal scrolling bullets dodging shooters !

    Haha, well, I'm an '89 and only played them late in the 90's so I learned to categorize the vertical/horizontal shooters as shmups from the get-go. Love them to this day!

    Real gamers call them "shoot-me-dos".

    Also SEUCK C64 was amazing.

    EDIT: Fuck yeah, I entered a Spud thread without insulting him! I even still had just cause.

    That's funny. Doing the Bing Rewards thing to get some xbox live and I thought, "Wouldn't it be easier if I just used Bing rather than Google...?" After one day I was back to doing 30 searches a day for random words on Bing and doing my actual searching on Google...

    The only time I dislike using Google is on my mobile. When I have to type it in the address bar for Google, it takes me to a searched result of Google. I feel stupid each time. I'm going to make a bookmark of it now sigh
