    Then the transfer to the Wasteland should be a kind indication, that it really wasn't wanted.

    If you find something funny, you can post it in the Community Discussion sub-forum, maybe there is even a YouTube / funny videos thread in there.

    This sub-forum is meant for discussing business and similar matters relating to Apple, the tech industry and the internet, not for posting funny videos.

    As you have said, you don't post here that often, maybe have a look at the FAQ or rules or this thread or many others who seem to be able to carry their message across with a proper thread title.

    i read into the forum title a little to literally. Apple, Industry and INTERNET DISCUSSION. I thought meaning general discussion. Either way is there really a reason for people to be a such a douche about it??? Simple mistake is a simple mistake.

    Once again, simple mistake. Yeah I dont post here that often, my bad. I read macrumors all the time since 2002 but dont get a chance to post since I had been serving in the military and it makes it kinda hard. Yeah i went there and not using it as an attention getter, but thats the reason WHY i dont post often. But for real a simple hey man, try this next time with out trying to belittle me would have been just fine. I will read up on the FAQS and rules and such so next time it wont happen. Do you read every instruction manual that comes with your products? I dont. I make mistakes. Sorry

    In the OP's defense the "internet discussion" part does lead one to believe that it's possible one could talk about non-apple related topics. Not everyone is a post whore like us.

    Notwithstanding, I continue to state that when you start a thread being more specific is key and it is a "tip" provided for you by the site ... as seen below.

    I'm not here to belittle you, if I came off as such, my mistake maybe.

    And yes, I read the manuals coming with products I have to use, and if it is too long (1000 pages) I at least read the parts I need to know to properly use them. In my line of work I have to use a lot of different equipment, which often have different setups and mechanisms, so reading the manual helps me understand those tools.
    That's why I linked to these pages. You don't need to read them, but it may make your understanding of properly posting here more easy.

    And of course, this is no biggie, but you have violated several rules, albeit small and virtual ones, and you got called on it. Sometimes we react a bit harsh though, but as you are in the military, you might know that tone, which I remember from my old days in the army.

    its cool. I probably should have woken up as little more in the first place before I even tried to post something. Me being in the military probably was the reason I read into the forum title to literally lol...

    Ah, okay. I know these moments.

    And nice find by the way, I feared the bear would hit her/himself with that stick. How s/he came up with that trick, is a little beyond me, but maybe s/he comes from a circus.

    yeah I thought it was pretty funny. I am not quite sure how I feel about a bear having a whole heck of a lot better coordination than i will ever have though.

    Title suggestion: Super awesome bear has more skills than you can shake a stick at!

    See, look, I referenced 2 awesome bits involved in the video in one seemingly succinct sentence!

    On topic: The video is simply amazing, I'm guessing it's gone (or will go) viral :p

    Tbh, I prefer Big green dude with mask shoots stuff in space 3, being able to play as the big green dude in HD was awesome, but I've moved onto Gritty shooter with soldiers set in modern times 2 :p


    Ok I'll stop messing now :p Cheers for the video, good afternoon watch.
