where are you from?
well if you are not from America, then I might be able to understand why you have never heard of pg13, because it is mainly an American system.
However, if you are from America, then no offense boy but you are living in a cave and you need to get out more.
I think we can safely assume that English is not his first language, and secondly, I've been led to believe that America is not where he calls home.
Ober, I'm curious. What country is this with a language that requires no capitalization?
not quite. The US in terms of regulations is pretty strict all around, for example I have not seen any R-rated movie that has people graphically and reallistically getting their heads shot off, or being disemboweled, which in porn would be equivalent to basic hardcore. Both of the previous would given a rating of NC-17 by the US MPAA.Quote:
The reason is that this a a pg13 site and the country that gave this rating tolerates violence and wages wars, but cannot stand public nudity or even *gasp* pron. Not to mention Nipplegate.
I can handle most violence and gore, but disembowelment just makes my stomach turn more than anything.
You do got to amit that the US is a little easier on violence than nudity though. As far as I know, frontal nudity other than breasts is not allowed in R movies, at least I've never seen it in R movies before. I'd say full frontal nudity would be the equivilent to dismemberment, which is allowed in R movies.
I just wish people would not get so worked up over little things like nudity. Everyone has a 99.9% chance of seeing the opposite sex in the nude during their life anyway. It's not like you'll be scarred by seeing it, and it's not depriving the security of your life or country in any way. It's just the human body. If parents would take more time to tell their kids what's right and wrong, we probably wouldn't have to worry about it.
>I just wish people would not get so worked up over little things like nudity.
I would sooooo write a 3 page rebuke about that one statement but I really don't want to start a flamewar, so I wont.
Consider yourself lucky. ;)
This seems to be a pretty US-centric view. Did it occur to you that this board is made up of people from different cultures, societies and countries ? While pg13 may be well known in the US, guess what, no one knows or even cares what pg13 means around here (Germany). Obviously many countries have their own rating systems and don't care for the almighty US system. I hope we don't get invaded because we use our own system *duck*Quote:
Are you from another planet or something? Or maybe you're just like 6 years old??? How can one person be so inept?
Now, for nudity vs violence, Germany for example has tv ads around noon that would make your rating group get a collective heart attack. You can see partial or full but slightly veiled nudity in spots for shower gel, beach resorts and even margarine ( which I don't consider to be used naked, but hey, I male, I see breast, I go buy margarine... *grunt* :rolleyes: ).
On the other hand, movies that are shown before 22:00 are almost always censored. Pieces are missing that are too gory. You won't see Private Ryan at prime time uncut and they even managed to find something to cut in Bad Boys. I don't consider Bad Boys that violent, but to each country it's own stupid censorship system ;)
the french censors are great, they were really lax untill last year (but the maximum you can get is under 16 for films, and i'm 17 so i don't care anymore :D).
france was quite bewildered, and quite amused about the "nipplegate" scnadal with our friends Janet and Justin, some people should have a massive pole removing from ass session methinks :) you get that type of ads for loads of things in france. as nvoigt said, bewbs on adverts sells. hail b00bs.
Okay, I noticed I created quite a discussion once I had created this thread, but its cause is coming to an end. Last Friday night after being high that whole week (every day Monday - Friday) on Corrociden Cough & Cold (spelled as best as I could) or CCC's (pronounced tripple C's) I had an overdose and my mom picked me up. She noticed I was completely stoned and rushed me to the hospital. They pumped me with fluids because the drugs in it cause me to be dehydrated. My heart rate was double normal (normal is 60-80), specifically my heart rate was jumping around 130-140. I could have died that night if my mom didn't take me to the hospital. I got a second chance at life. I am greatful for it. I have sworn to myself, on my second chance at life, and on my mom who loves me more than life and cried the whole night i was in the ER room (she had to go through 9 years of a drug addict as a husband, until devorce, and I feel like I am sillyI am sillyI am sillyI am silly trying to put her through that again), that I will never touch a drug for the rest of my life. I hope I am strong enough because I can tell I have a mental addiction. I had a mental addiction to the high. I get bored and I start wanting to get high. The best remedy is to keep occupied (like you guys were saying). I am working on my porn addiction, which is harder because it has been going on longer, specifically YEARS. I was introduced to porn at age 13 and I am now 17. So it will be tough. Wish me luck, and as a word of advice to anyone who starts out with an 'innocent drug', you think it is, but you want that thing more and more, and then that thing isn't enough, and so you go harder, but if you stop now, while it's not so hard to, you won't end up like me, and almost die, and possibly die and not get lucky like me. <3 you all, and I am happy to be able to be posting to you today!

edit: Good on ya CodeNinja
well, if your story isn't complete BS (I'm sKeptical, so kill me) then I hope that you did learn your lesson. Everytime you get ........ed off at your mom think about that moment in your life; and if you ever put her through something similar again then you are a worthless human being.
