Try refreshing your browser. Comicgenesis tends to stick on the old strip, I've noticed.

I wonder what evidence she has to offer?

Zero. Just like Jack Thompson.

to support her claims, accusations, nor
her proof as an ordained ministress.

Where's me a brick for me to aim and
launch at that waddlin' whackjob's head?

I knew someone would bring up that sac of crap. although i must admit its pretty funny watching him in some of his debates with actual people in the game industry who know what they are talking about and have the facts to back them up.

Killjoys like that lady (and others that
have the same modeus operandi)
need to be shown the door.

Folks like her are in desperate need of a real job.

XD

But noone likes clowns.

But killjoys will try to get thier way, but ironic as it is,
they either fade into obscurity or die out like Patricia Pulling.

I just love Ben's attitude.

"I know you're all a pain in the neck and a major annoyance but I'm giving you fair warning,"

that, and even people who like being wet won't stand for it for too long. water + air/wind = cold, very cold.
I still say the doctor did it....

Some people consider any type of "game of skill/chance" where you can win tickets to get a prize to be gambling.

Ralph might have just won me back on the comic because I love freaking these type of people out.

BTW this is something from MANY years ago that a friend showed me: http://www.crossroad.to/text/articles.html

Basically the woman that owns this site is anti-EVERYTHING because it's not christian.

Well, Japanese pachinko is effectively a form of gambling, as you can win balls by playing well and cash in any balls you have left when done. But IIRC Ben isn't offering pachinko.

The closest I know of any arcades in the U.S. get to gambling (aside from Nevada and places where it's legal) is offering prize tickets out of some games. The tickets can be "cashed in" for cheap, arcade-type prizes, the cost of which is probably covered by the profits of the game fees. Otherwise calling most arcade games "gambling" is (by my understanding of the law) an extreme and inappropriate stretch.

I'm waiting for Ben - or the cop the protesters call to complain - to ask for their permit. (And if they're far enough onto his property to get soaked by the sprinklers, there's a good chance they're trespassing.)

Pachinko IS NOT gambling.

Playing games for money is illegal under Japanese law.

The little pachinko BB's are the same as the "tickets" in our american style games, however you can also use them to play the games as well (as acctual physical pieces) You have to "cash in" your BB's for a voucher which is then used to purchase over priced little novelties. Same as in any Chuck E. Cheese.

There is a way to skirt the law by trading your voucher for a number of small worthless looking coins then "selling" them to a hidden office somewhere near the Pachinko parlor for real cash. Given that you are not directly trading the balls for money, the law is by passed.

This is also why you see places like Wal-Mart and others selling "50 state legal Slot Machines" from Hong Kong and Japan.

These are called "Skill Stop" slot machines. The reels just keep spinning, and the machine doesn't stop them automatically. You have to stop them yourself. It is entirely possible to play the game and come up with 777 every single time you play because you are the one stopping the reels and not the machine. As this is technically a "skill game" it is able to go under the radar. Though as with every one I've ever seen, they do bear the "For Amusement Purposes only" sticker on them and I've only seen them in private residences.

Now, what we need to do is get Ms Peckensniff introduced to Beltane...

...Preferably from a safe distance, with folding chairs and popcorn to enjoy the fireworks.

Miss Peckinsniff reminds of a bit character in a Tiny Toons sketch. Buster and Babs are playing the Anvil Chorus, by dropping real anvils. :lol: Plucky is dodging like mad to avoid being reduced to cartoon patte. All of a sudden a woman, with similar glasses and posture, pops up and remonstrated Plucky. She's from The Adults Against Funny Cartoons, and states this cartoon is too violent, she's counted eighty-seven acts of violence so far.

Then one of the anvils lands directly on her (right next to Plucky) and when he lands on it the duck just smiles, then runs for his life.

I totally called it being a bird.

And, actually, I find violent games therapeutic. Instead of violently extracting an annoying customer's eye, I go home and play games and I'm okay again. I'm joking. I would just take off the whole head. Easier that way.

...ahem.

Just kiddin.

Some sprinkler systems have catches where you can add chemicals, plant food, weed killer... muriatic acid(?) to the water... just a thought. :evil:

Is anyone else surprised her last name is..."Peckersnif?"
Jesus said to her, 'I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he may die, he shall live. And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?' John 11: 25-26
