Give him Life in prison or the Death Penalty. If you think that is too harsh then to bad, I'm not sorry for saying that. If an individual causes bodily harm to a human being that is incapable of defending themselfs (especially infant) then the punishment must be severe.

I think Sea Shep can really go out to prove that they're the better people if they can interrupt and prevent whale killing while still maintaining the 500 yard distance. They can show that you don't have to resort to extreme sea-tactics or acts of aggression and still accomplish your goal. I think if they can do that, they'd have a lot more backers behind them, including me!
hmmm 500 yard you say?
Ready the 105 Howitzers, I'm feeling lucky today.
Sorry I been playing waaay too much Company of Heros, but in all seriousness it is possible for them to do so in a non-aggressional act.

I agree with you Papigiulio, plus if they really want to sell the next gen they need to find that balance with the software and hardware.
Another thing that I'm sure alot of us will agree on is that it needs PS3 compatibility, seriously alot of people were not happy that you couldn't play PS2 games on the PS3. Granted the first gen PS3s were able to do so but after sony realize it they quickly made it so it can't....those jerks (╯ಠ_ಠ)╯ ︵ ┻━┻

Well thats one way to not have to pay for a plane ticket. I hope the snake is ok though.
They should call him "Dragon" because he is a reptile and he flew, granted he may have cheated by using a human made machine, but hey who could blame him.

Just a short story related to this topic.
Inmate Handson stares at his cell wall thinking back to all the things he has ever done, when he hears the sound of boots coming down the row. The Warden is coming he gulped, quickly sitting up and stands at his cell bars.
Warden McFarcen stops at Handson's cell.
"How's it going Inmate Handson?" The Warden ask as he turns to face him, "g,good Warden McFarcen sir" Handson repies nervously. "Now, now you can just call me Warden.....I bet your wondering while I came all the way down here to your cell hmm?" "Yes sir" Handson answers back hoping today will not be that day he fears.
"Well normally I don't do this to most Inmates in your predicament but, I thought I come down here to let ya'll know that you Day will be this Thursday. I figure a man be told alittle early about his last time on earth rather than just walking you to the door on that day." The Warden paused for a moment, "I figure you may wanted to hear it from me instead of the guards. Are you ok with me tellin ya'll this now or.." "N,no Warden, I thank you for givin me the chance to know when my final day is.....w,will they be there to watch me?" Handson ask as he starts to tear. "Yes son, I'm sure they will, most victim's families never miss these events." The Warden paused one last time, "Just do the right thing this time and give your respect to that family."
Warden McFarcen walks off, back down the row. Inmate Handson listening to the boots as they fade away, he stare at his bars with tear in his eyes yet somewhat glad to at least know now that his day is about to come.

LIES! LIES AND SLANDERS! The PS2 never had a Blu-Ray Player, it only had a CD+DVD Player! There ends my short angry gaming nerd rant.
Oh on a side note does anyone remember if you took a PS1 or PS2 disc and put it into a CD player it would play the audio files. XD
