Happy 4th Of July!

In the US of A, today is the 4th of July, which might mean a day off from work, BBQs, and 50% off love seats at the local furniture depot, but it’s really a day to celebrate America’s independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain on July 4th, 1776.

I personally am going to spend a good majority of my day catching up on a couple of anime episodes I’ve been slacking from watching, playing some DBZ on the 360, and probably going out to watch Hancock later tonight.  So I ask you, what do you have planned on your 4th of July?

On behalf of FileFront & Gaming Today, I’d like to wish all of you in the USA a happy & safe 4th of July!

4th of July, The best way to do something illegal and the police do nothing about it because it’s awesome. Yeah, fireworks are illegal in New York… :sad:

This US worshipping must end. US is just one country among others. If you are going to post this kind of stuff in a gaming news page…. then… From this moment, I demand you to post something every time there is some country’s independence day.

I have nothing against US btw. (except the law system)

@plz die: US worshiping? By wishing those in the US (which I am one of those) a Happy 4th of July? How is it worshiping a country by wishing the inhabitants a happy holiday?

If I had a calendar full of world holidays, I would wish everyone a happy holiday when it was appropriate. But I don’t. So all I know is today is the 4th of July in the US, and so I wanted to do something nice and wish everyone a happy holiday. I have no idea how good wishes can turn into something negative.

It just goes to show you can never make everyone happy, no matter how hard you try.

@S.T.A.L.K.E.R: Hopefully you’ve got a lady to go see Wall-E with. It’ll pretty much guarantee you some hot making out action afterward. It’s know to tug at a couple of heart strings.

plz die

Daniel, this is a gaming news (blog), right? What does US holidays have anything to do with this? Isn’t this supposed to be international site/something?

You could find holidays/independence days of other countries easily and post them. It would be lame though.

And don’t mind that “US worshipping” :( Too often, on international websites, I see a message/news post that says that there is some competition or something like that. From the post, you get the idea that it is for everyone. But then it’s only for US citizens. It should be properly stated if it’s US only. I’m tired of that crap. Sometimes it seems like you(americans, not all) think that US is the whole world.

When I come to an international gaming news site, I don’t expect to see posts of US/etc holidays or such. Could it be possible to put such things on the right side of this site/page? I think there is enough space between those “Archives”, “Recent Comments”, etc.

Well, I guess it doesn’t really matter but try to get someone to post other countries based non-gaming/contest(ads) related stuff.

Darn this is long… Sorry if my english sucks. I haven’t slept for almost two days. Stupid me :(

@Daniel: Tell me about! I went to go see it with my best friend yesterday (she is my ex but we are the best of friends) and I almost leaned over to kiss her, she actually leaned and then realized what she was doing, lol! Not that I am complaining or anything :P

@Plz die: dont be full of yourself, this is an American website, run by Americans, and by golly, WE ARE GOING TO CELEBRATE!

Also, your English is better than most Americans own Enlish

Lmao@ DancingCorpse and the By Golly

@ plz die you are a complete idiot. Are you that bored that you have to complain about a site wishing everyone a great 4th of July . I thought I have dealt with my share of stupid people but you sir have reached new heights. Go be miserable at whatever country you are in then and do not take it out on us.

@Daniel you are the bomb-hizzy, keep spreading love and laughs to all of us proud Americans and just the whole world around! :D

wow

On July 4, 2008 at 5:17 pm

make your own website and post whatever you want there, leave us the hell alone, i can already tell by that comment your from europe, just jealous cause u never liberated yourselves, theres still time!!!go for it!!!

Well, anyway, be it a gaming site or not, it isn’t very MATURE to bash someone for what they post in it. BTW, the only thing that bothers me is that whole, “5 de Mayo” stuff the americans celebrate.

On July 4, 2008 at 9:17 pm

@wow, i believe most countries (in the whooooole world) have an independence day, or even a Revolution one, so go get yourself informed so you won’t show your ignorant ass around.

You know im right.
America has got worse in them years. And this freedom has been pretty much abused by trying to get back an England and act like a big set of dumb fools and “save” us in the war.
Next time:
DONT show up THREE BLEEPING YEARS LATE
and
Put some god damn effort in.

And also dont send us to war and sit behind us.

plz die

On July 5, 2008 at 11:25 am

Ah… how did I turn this into this… sorry guys :S

but anyway, I do have a point. If you are going to post one independence day thing, you should post them all.

Babylinda, you are more idiot than I am. And btw, I’m enjoying my free health care, free high quality education and.. wait, I’m not going to start anything again… lets just forget this and live in peace ;)

PS. I still didn’t sleep :(

What’s up guys and gals, I hope my fellow Americans had a great 4th, for everyone else I hope it was a swell day for you as well.

Unfortunately, I didn’t have time to do much gaming but I did get drunk off my ass at my parent’s house and set off some mad fireworks.

I’m home taking care of my little girl today, she is sick with a fever so I’ll probably be posting a lot today.

Go Marlins!!!!
