Re: moral nihilism

1. It's true that nothing hongi's suggested is of any value.
2. No, the statement is not any less valid because I said it.
3. You know what? Fuck you, and fuck this decrepit old BBS. It hasn't aged well at all, and I've finally had enough of it.

So like CoD Modern Warfare but with a cover system? :v

So...they chose a retarded color scheme because they wanted something cool like what the Marines had, but separate for unique brand identity?
