    New York :)

    And I would if he didn't have huge security guards ready to strangle someone to death :( and the snipers on top will be watching your every move lol!

    I just hope there's no bombing plans, because if the bomb explodes in there I'm definitely dead lol

    Do you have one of those little RC helicopters? That could be all kinds of fun.

    Like the peniscopter stunt?

    I was thinking about ways to cause a scene so I could end up on the news, and it could help GS too.

    So heres the plan. I load up a GS app, and then from 50 ft away I throw my iPhone towards obamas face. He then catches the iPhone and after 50 ft of flying in the air the GS logo is still there, the app still loading. The iPhone is now in his handC, and he sees the words "made with gamesalad." Now since Obama saw those words, the public is going to see it as well on the news. Suddenly, GS becomes a hit, more people buy our apps, and most importantly I'm famous. Perfect!

    Even better!

    1. Find a Dynamite image off one of those stock image sites.

    2. Make an app for the iPad that just displays the dynamite with the fuse burning down. (hint - use 'interpolate')

    3. Strap iPad to your stomach.

    4. Run towards Obama, screaming.

    5. Get a handshake from Obama saying how enterprising you are! *

    Good luck!

    QS :D

    *part five is dependent on the speed of sniper intervention. Don't worry about it too much though, it'll all be over in the blink of an eye!

    Better plan here:
    Here's what you do...

    1) Disguise yourself as a Dinosaur as they will never suspect anything being a Natural History Museum.
    2) Build a quick GS app that simulates a constant ongoing loading screen...basically a loop of the GS splash.
    3) Attach your iPod to the end of a long fishing pole.
    4) While in the Dino disguise...discreetly dangle the iPod behind the President as he addresses the crowd on the Presidential podium.
    5) Make sure that GS load screen is there for all to see (and all the news cameras to see).
    6) In the event of Sniper Intervention...run like hell in a serpentine pattern (harder to hit that way)...but don't forget your iPod. Use the dino-suit to your advantage.

    Wow lmfao. You guys are hilarious that made my day.
  • peachpellenpeachpellen Posts: 977Member
    That's right - let's all pretend the peniscopter stunt WASN'T a good idea.

    I'm not saying it has to have nothing to do with GS - surely they have stickers or something?

    He he... I had sniper rifles trained on my head once. Was when I met the Queen back in the 90's. I was worried that one of them might sneeze! LOL.

    The security guys (I'm guessing police - diplomatic protection squad) said that anyone who approached the queen would have a gun trained on them and suggested no sudden movements.

    Were probably all lies though as I was just an annoying little 18 year old, asking where the snipers were... as opposed to the annoying 34 year old I am now (had to beat QS to that).

    Obama has done an amazing job digging the US (and the world) out of that massive hole Bush created... still has a long way to go, though.

    Let's not get into opinions on politics XD

    I come here to escape that - there's more than enough at Digital Point. >.<'

    Tell that to the 20-30M people out of work.

    And Bush didn't create the current recession...Barney Frank and Chris Dodd did via their Congressional Finance Committee and with Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac via credit and lending policies set in place during the Clinton administration...which led to the housing price boom...and the resulting bust...which was the catalyst for the magnitude of this recession. That combined with an inflationary dollar and China leveraging their currency (via US treasuries) to keep the greenback weak. Bush did however encourage the process to continue.

    Just an FYI and a fact check. Trying to avoid opinion here to oblige Peach's request.

    It generally takes about a decade for a recession to develop and about 6 years for a boom time to develop. The problem with this cycle is the extremity of the situation and the slow pace of the cycle to turn.

    I'm not sure if Obama's spending policies are the solution for ending it...but that is debatable I guess...as there are economists on both sides of that fence. Most American's however (2 out of 3) do not think the excessive spending is wise...which is what spawned the tea party movement.

    Ha, nice post Synthesis.

    I saw the sweeping Obama mania, which was not founded in reality. It was like he was supposed to be this great savior, but it didn't take too much foresight to see what would happen. The economy was one of the main reasons he was elected. Up until the big crash, McCain was pretty close. The economy is also the same reason Obama's popularity has waned.

    Instead of pushing through a lousy health care bill, he could have done better things... like putting people to work with rebuilding and improving the nation's infrastructure.

    I like his idea to encourage the use of video games as educational tools.

    A lot of people don't like Bush because of the wars. A lot of people think it's about oil. So, wouldn't it make more sense to build up the nation's energy supply? If I was president, I'd be pushing congress to approve jobs for windmills and solar farms. People would be put to work (helping the economy in the short term), energy would be cheaper (helping the economy in the long run) and the projects would likely turn a profit.

    America should get back to building big things. It's incredibly disappointing to see how long the rebuilding of the World Trade Center is taking.

    Heh... and while I enjoy political discussion... I suppose I should get back to building big things too.

    Why did this thread have to get political? The GS forum is no place for that crap, there are plenty of forums to spout your views, dislikes, hatred or whatever.

    This started as an interesting thread by an active member, and it wasn't political... just interesting.

    I blame the media. Everyone these days is now a political commentator, even with only half the facts from various biased news outlets. It's like it in the UK with the national football team, everyone is an armchair manager with an opinion full of hindsight fueled by the tabloids.

    Why not? Do video games always have to be about escapism?

    In the United States, it's free speech and the discussions of ideas that makes the nation great. I don't think Obama is some secret Muslim, plotting to destroy America. Yet, I do think that some of his policies won't work. More importantly, his priorities are out-of-touch with the needs of the nation.

    He wants games that are more educational... so why shy away from politics? Perhaps a game can be created that shows the benefits of fierce debate, while showing the values of opposing sides.

    This thread needs a lock so it stops showing up at the top of my unread list. The all caps title is driving me crazy

    That's actually an intriguing idea. Would take a lot of thought, but I like it.

    I would run up to him really fast pushing my way through the crowd screaming "Play my iPhone game! (game title) Mr. Obama! Play my iPhone game!!! (game title)" Then throw your iPhone at him!

    Ya, you may get tackled and/or shot, and probably thrown in jail. But your sales will go through the roof!

    Obama has done nothing, but you aren't form the USA so I would expect you to fall for the media BS. Obama has driven our country into more debt than ALL presidents combined. And BTW, this mess wasnt created by Bush, it was created by Clinton and it was made worse when the democrats had taken over back in 2006.

    The man is a useless piece of ****.
  • ORBZORBZ Posts: 1,303Member
    .. uhm... wasn't bush the one who gave us all the debt to begin with?
