  1. Say it ain't so, Joe

    I still have yet to understand why Jo Pa got fired. I am utterly disgusted about this whole situation but nothing makes me more enraged than the media and the way they handled this and all of their bulls*** slander, specifically ESPN (to be fair that's the only station I watched other than local news). Based upon what I know (which I am well aware may not be the full truth) I don't think that Joe Paterno deserved to be fired, or even be forced to resign for that matter. It has recently come to light that Joe told the athletic director, the president of the university, and the chief of campus police. With that said how in gods name can that not be considered enough? Yes, I do realize that he didn't follow up and that he could have done more, but from my standpoint Joe did not one single :censored:ing thing wrong. The way I see it now is that regardless of what Joe or anyone else knew, (because at some point does it even really matter?) weather it was the shadow of the tip of the iceberg or the whole gross ugly truth, the fact of the matter is that the university decided to protect themselves because a sex scandal, no matter how big, looks bad. Now, along with the help of ESPN and the other media, Penn State was given the opportunity to run and hide and yet again not take responsibility. Isn't it convenient that Joe has turned into the scapegoat for this whole f****d up situation? Joe did nothing wrong, he does not deserve this, 64 years and now this s***? I have one last point to make. Above someone posted a link to the Milgram Experiment, which is something that I continuously thought about when I heard literally hundreds of people saying that they would never do anything like that, because they have moral standards, they are real humans with feelings. While everyone would like to believe that if they themselves were put in the same set of circumstances that they would do the right thing. This experiment proved that most people are gun shy and in the moment do the wrong thing even when they know that it is wrong. Many very good people broke down in tears and lived with years of guilt after being told that they were part of a test, because they scared themselves, they realized just exactly what they were capable of. If you don't know about this experiment you really should take a look at it, it may make you think differently. Long live Joe Paterno! College football will never be the same.
  2. Supermarket Packaging Changes

    I'm not sure if this exactly fits into this topic (but it certainly does not deserve its own). Anyway, I had a job working at a Safeway grocery store for about 6 months until i quit a month or two ago, as you can imagine I observed a lot of different packaging changes. But this one stood out to me, I've been meaning to post it here for a long time but i am only now just getting to it. So it must have been late last year, there was this big kosher display in the back of the store that had common products but they were kosher. I was putting back this bag of Lays potato chips when I noticed something odd. I don't know packaging labels by heart but something didn't seem right. I looked both ways for my manager and then took a picture and made my way over to where the rest of the chips were. I found what I thought i would find, a bad of the same kind of Lays that was not kosher. Notice how the Y on the kosher product has a loop and the non-kosher product doesn't? Why is this? Do they seriously find it necessary to make such a small change? is there another reason that I don't know about? Can anyone shed some light on this mystery?

  4. 3D Rendered Helmet Tutorial

    When you open the psd it should be just like step 5 just without the white background. Yeah it is. what i cannot figgure out is how to 'copy the mask' once i have the mask layer in a new window. Thanks for all yuor help man. Well if your using the psd you dont have to worry about the mask, its already on there and applied. That was the point of the psd, was so you could just start right away with the logos and colors, didnt have to worry about setup. When i open the file you gave me the edges are still fuzzy like in step 4, then davidson made a list of things to do to get rid of that and you end with the product in step 5. I really want to get this and your advice is very helpful, thanks.

    Alright first off this is the coolest thing ever and many thanks to davidson for making it and letting the public use it. I have a dumb question though. the very last thing you wrote in the first post was 'create a folder and place all these files inside it', how do you do that? I am using a very old version of photoshop too, 5.0 I dont know if that makes a difference but i thought i would say it. thanks alot Jake
