    Hey guys. I was once a semi-popular Flash animator and ROM hacker. You can see many of my old animations on Newgrounds, and many of my ROM hacks on my website here.

    Many popular posters have quit since I've joined, and I've seen the site here go through some serious changes.

    I once had an epic signature that was all text, but it was a couple pixels too big. Rather than asking/telling me to change it policy is to removed without warning. I've never bothered to remake it, the glory is gone.


    I am a business student. I'm the sole proprietor of a San Francisco tech company I started. I am probably the only person on this board who has studded any law, and as expected I find the popular amature lawyering here hilarious.
    I studded Japanese for years, completed a Japanese minor, and studdied abroad in Japan for a while. I watch anime without subtitles but don't usually play video games in Japanese anymore.


    So go ahead ask me anything. [​IMG]

    1. Do you miss the old times? I remember the old popular posters, they rocked.
    2. What do you think of the new popular posters?
    3. Do you visit the 'temp as frequently as one year ago?
    4. ...Studded? Typo or something volountarily done?
    5. [​IMG] or [​IMG]?
    6. What do you think of the EoF?
    7. Should we bring the TA back, hoping it'll bring epic back with its name?

    1. Do you miss the old times? I remember the old popular posters, they rocked.
    Yes, but if one always dwells on yesterday, he can't enjoy today or tomorrow as much. Even though I ripped on Urza for his purple text when he was new, I miss a lot of old posters like he and scuba.

    2. What do you think of the new popular posters?
    They're good. Smart and witty with quality posts.

    3. Do you visit the 'temp as frequently as one year ago?
    No way. Certainly less but still very regularly.

    4. ...Studded? Typo or something volountarily done?
    lol. a typo. "studied"

    5. [​IMG] or [​IMG]?

    [​IMG] all the way

    6. What do you think of the EoF?

    Not so interested, but a very necessary part of the board to keep shitposts down in general discussion. Same with the 'blog' thing.

    7. Should we bring the TA back, hoping it'll bring epic back with its name?

    what do you mean by TA? a Testing Area? I didn't think it was that significant, just use part of real posts to test stuff!

    TA = Testing Area. A lot of people just miss the ol' name, since it helds nice memories.
    Back in 05-07 there were a lot of awesome threads being posted in there.
    Nowadays it's just a landfill, even if amusing threads pop up every now and then.

    Well, thanks for answering [​IMG]

    OBJECTION!

    *points an accusatory finger*

    With a spoiler section like you've provided us, what more could we possibly want to know about you?

    *drums his fingers*


    I'LL TELL YOU WHAT KINDS OF THINGS!

    RIDICULOUS THINGS!

    (insert jarring chord)

    Tell me Mister Bago, (if that is your real name) Where were you on the night of December 31st, 1999

    What is your favorite type of cracker?

    How does the full moon affect GBAtemp?

    Why do i hurt right here *points* and right here *points* and RIGHT HERE?!? *points*

    WHAT...is your quest?

    WHAT...is the capital of Assyria?

    Can you handle the truth?

    Why should the fifth of November be remembered?

    What are your favorite "$2 words"? (Fancy terms that make you sound smarter)

    Puppies or kittens?

    What would your mother think if she knew what you were doing? You KNOW what I mean. ¬.¬

    Can we just try this straitjacket on you for sizing?

    Can we have your liver?

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    Can we all just 'get along?' (Is it possible?)

    Let them eat:
    A: babies B: cake C: each other D: shit and die E: deez nutz F: all of the above

    If your wife a goer? Eh? KnowwhatImean, nudge-nudge, wink-wink, say no more.

    Is anybody enjoying these obscure Python references?

    Are you sick of me yet?

    If a chicken-and a-half can lay an egg-and-a-half in a day-and-a-half, how long does it take a grasshopper with a wooden leg to kick all the seeds out of a dill pickle?

    What's that got to do with the price of eggs in China?

    Do you mind if I reserve the right to cross-examine you again?

    I alternate between a Motorolla Razor (the second revision) and an Apple iPhone (again, the second revision). I use a very cheap T-mobile plan so there are disadvantages to both. Thinking of copying my SIM card so I can use both.

    My answers in bold.

    hehhehahahAHHAHAHHH. In the words of a Reese's Commercial of the 90's, "oh, you'll think of something." *flipz quarter*

    (insert intensifying chord)

    Tell me Mister Bago, (if that is your real name) Where were you on the night of December 31st, 1999
    "Heran Bago" as you know him was on the internet. Although at the point you're referring to my presence wasn't well established. Why do you ask?

    What is your favorite type of cracker?
    Rice crackers.

    How does the full moon affect GBAtemp?
    They say lunar and tidal effects can have some bearing on human cognition similar as it does to certain animals. Research is inconclusive as far as I know, so teh difference is probably negligible.

    Why do i hurt right here *points* and right here *points* and RIGHT HERE?!? *points*
    Too much fun.

    WHAT...is your quest?
    Hmm. I'd say I've already completed my main quest. In the endgame here my current quest is to succeed in this company I made.

    WHAT...is the capital of Assyria?
    Google says Nineveh.

    Can you handle the truth?
    Yes, this one.

    Why should the fifth of November be remembered?
    Probably the gunpowder treason and plot.

    What are your favorite "$2 words"? (Fancy terms that make you sound smarter)
    I will get back to you on this one...

    Puppies or kittens?
    Puppies

    What would your mother think if she knew what you were doing? You KNOW what I mean. ¬.¬
    She would probably understand.

    Can we just try this straitjacket on you for sizing?

    Yeah sure I've been wondering what my size is.

    Can we have your liver?

    No... No...

    Does this smell like chloroform to you?

    No... No...

    Can we all just 'get along?' (Is it possible?)

    Who do you mean by "we all"? But probably not.

    Let them eat:
    A: babies B: cake C: each other D: shit and die E: deez nutz F: all of the above

    The famous quote is C. That dumb bitch.

    If your wife a goer? Eh? KnowwhatImean, nudge-nudge, wink-wink, say no more.

    And if she is??

    Is anybody enjoying these obscure Python references?

    I wasn't catching on to them, sorry.

    Are you sick of me yet?

    Not really. I signed up to answer ANY questions.

    If a chicken-and a-half can lay an egg-and-a-half in a day-and-a-half, how long does it take a grasshopper with a wooden leg to kick all the seeds out of a dill pickle?

    Everything up to the "how" is irrelevant. I don't think it could happen though tbh

    What's that got to do with the price of eggs in China?

    Nothing

    Do you mind if I reserve the right to cross-examine you again?

    Sure I guess.

    Why did you originally join GBAtemp those many moons ago?

    What made you studded.. ahem.. study law?

    Just how fluent are you speaking Japanese, enough to hold and understand a conversation with a native speaker?

    Favourite tv show?

    Here's a simple Japanese test.

    Your task: Write the following 6 questions in English and answer them (also in English).

    Good show using an image, a real test! My answers in bold.
    Do you like music?
    Yes, but I'm not sure on my favorite genre.

    Which is better, pirates or ninjas?
    They are difficult to compare, but I prefer a pirate as they are free, as opposed to ninja who historically work for their master or the highest bidder.

    If you could fly anywhere in the world, where would you go?
    I'm very happy living in San Francisco but I would like to see London, Sydney, Toronto, and New York.

    What does "Heran Bago" mean?
    It's a move the Brazilian martial art Capoeria. It can be seen in Tekken's movelist for Eddy Gordo or one of his clones. It's a move where the fighter kicks while falling/laying down. I used to study martial arts, I got a blackbelt in Shaolin Kenpo Karate, then I got seriously tired of it and I quit.

    Do you like Japanese-made (developed?) games?
    Yeah a lot of them. Not all of course, many are shit. That's a really big category there. Western ones can be good too.

    Do you like flash cartridges?
    Yeah, mostly for homebrew but also for ROM hacking. I like the legal applications of the technology moreso than the illegal ones. I dislike the Japanese use of "majikon" for flash cartridges but they love their outdated abbreviations. College students still refer to Microsoft Word as "wapuro" or "Word Pro" from back when it sucked.

    Fix'd.

    Although I'd say you've passed the test, since no one could've even come close to answering any of the questions unless they could actually read Japanese. [​IMG] Good job, fellow ninja!

    *EDIT1*
    Are you in the Bay area? I'm in NorCal. I figured the Bay because your avatar profile says "foggy CA".

    *EDIT2*
    nm, I just read in your post above that you have a tech company in SF. My bad! [​IMG] Well, I'm in Sac, only a little over an hour away from you.
