For me, it was mostly because that was all there was. It didn't really register with me how hard that stuff really was because there was nothing to compare it to. It definitely did leave me with a taste for difficult games though as 20+ years later I find a lot of modern games too easy. All those games are still just as hard as they were back then though, and I'm honestly amazed at what I was able to beat when I was a little kid. I still can't beat Contra or Battletoads even now.

Yes, fish is a type of meat since it's still from an animal.

If it's a really hard potato maybe .

The answer is a bit more complicated, involving a misunderstanding arising from translation issues.

Taken from a Catholic forum:
Quote:
In the original Latin text of Pope Paul VI's (1963 - 1978) apostolic Constitution, Paenitemini, we find the following:
Abstinentiae lex vetat carne vesei, non autem ovis, lacticiniis et quibuslibet condimentis etiam ex adipe animalium. [III:1]

Translation:
"The law of abstinence forbids the use of meat, but not of eggs, the products of milk, or condiments made of animal fat." [III:1]
The word used for meat is carnis. In modern English, the word meat can refer to any animal flesh. But, in the Latin cited here, it refers only to mammals and birds. So, fish, seafood, amphibians and insects are permitted (assuming you want to eat some of them); but mammals and fowls are not.
That's just for Western culture, though. I am vaguely aware of similar distinctions between mammalian flesh and seafood in Asian cultures, but I don't know why that is so. Quite possibly, if it doesn't bleed red when raw, people mistakenly believe it isn't real "meat".

That reminds me of something an acquaintance once told me: We condone the way we prepare some seafood only because fish can't scream.

Well... you could choke to death on a really lumpy piece of potato...

On the potato question. If indirectly counted. Then yes.

If you hold the potato and bash someone head with the same fist. The potato increase you fist weight (hence more force) and make your fist more solid

Or that is what i was told

Maybe a frozen hard potato . Of course, the fewer hit needed the better.

Why beat someone with a potato when to can shoot someone with a potato cannon instead?

In the event a food item is being used as a projectile, that's what, in my experience, people call food fights. In which case you're better off using something with as much AoE (Area of Effect) range as possible, such as pasta or cakes. Soup is also especially good since its heat will tend to stun anyone it hits.

Don't ask me how I know all of this, btw.

Okay, I need to know if psp games like Final Fantasy Dissidia 012 (which can play multiplayer through ad hoc) can wirelessly play with others globally through a standard wifi connection. I couldn't find this specific answer on Google.

You can do it if all people who want to play have a PS3 and download ad-hoc party from the store.

You can also try using XLink Kai but I've never tried it on the psp personally, just the old xbox.

Okay I have a question, I need help finding a game!

Now it's an old game, not sure what it's played on.. I think it's an arcade game.
Now, it's called 'arabian..cantremembertherest'

In the game there's some guy with really long arms who attacks you, and there is 4 characters to choose from.

I used to ace this game when I was like 5! Everytime!
Wanna see if I still got the skill.

Let me know if you've got any idea what the fkkkk i'm on about

I want to say Dhalsim from Street Fighter, but I don't think that's quite correct.
