    First topic message reminder :

    The SHS is a Sod Map-set, all 21 levels. All levels are made by me, other than level 21, which Ack did. All levels are now DONE, so get beta testing, Jpb, or someone Smile
    Yes, I'll stuff your name into the credits list.
    While beta testing tell me which level you hated the most and which level you like the most.

    Or what some non-Spanish speakers call The Rio Grande River. Rio means river and grande means big, so it would be like calling it the River Big River.

    @Dean wrote:...I remember meeting an American Student once who was here on exchange who was shocked that we didin't celebrate 4th July. I tried to explain to him that American's have this false ideal that 'things that happen in American hapen everywhere', even though though really don't. Maybe he needed a bit of a History lesson about 4th Jul;y and why AMERICANS celebrate it. Australian's do find it hilariously funny how dillusional American's are about the rest of the World and how you all think you are the greatest nation on Earth when a massive majority of you never leave your own country. How can you compare with what you don't know's out there?confused Stupid, stupid. ...
    Speaking of American Holidays that aren't in all places, are you familiar with The American Civil War? It was from 1861 to 1865 over land, states' rights, slavery, and a lot of things. Some of the former Confederate States have some controversial holidays honoring Confederate soldiers that I don't agree with. The Confederacy lost the war.

    The 4th of July in other countries: I believe that The Philipines just happen to have Independence Day on July 4th. Philipinos push the Manilla envelope a little bit further. ...South Koreans can sing and dance because they have Seoul. These are puns. In America, if you have soul, then it means that you can sing and dance.

    If you think that Americans are strange and naive then there are some strange answers on Jaywalking segments on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno. You can watch online on nbc.com or hulu.com. Jay Leno would ask pedestrians questions that are simple enough. People in Southern California must have some strange delusions and I haven't heard a lot of good things about The California educational system. About the weirdest was when he would ask people what made the Mount Rushmore carvings and they would say erosion. Singer Cher believes it was erosion. On the 10th Anniversay Special, he showed the best of Jaywalking. He was talking to some girls that were about 18 and White instead of Asian, asked them what country The Korean War was in, and they said Vietnam. Then he laughed joking that he can't do this anymore. Also on that same 10th Anniversary Special, he had this conversation with an oddball man who looks like he's about 30 years old:

    Jay Leno: What country is The Panama Canal in?
    Oddball Man: I don't know.
    Jay Leno: OK. What country is The Great Wall of China in?
    Oddball Man: China.
    Jay Leno: OK. What country is The Panama Canal in?
    Oddball Man: China.
    Some of their answers make no sense.

    I don't know if you're going to love or hate this next part. At my university, I went the Study Abroad Australia callout. I unfortunately ended up not going to Australia. They had Americans that had visited Australia and had come back. They also had Australians visiting The USA. One Australian said, "When Americans think of Australia, they think of boomerangs, kangaroos, and Aborigines. When Australians think of America, then think of guns and executions." Then he pretends that he's in Australia meeting an American tourist and says, "You're an American? Do you have a gun? Have you ever fired a gun? Do you have a gun with you right now? Can I see it?"

    @Dean wrote:...As for missing Halloween? How can you miss something you never had and never cared about it? Like Christmas and Easter it's been commercialised and is nothing like what the whole thing is actually about. Ask 1,000 American 9 year olds what Halloween is about and why it's celebrated and I guarantee you you get 1,000 answers exactly the same : Candy!!
    Trick-Or-Treating: I've heard that this is now in Italy.

    Halloween in other countries: Mexicans have The Day of The Dead, but it's on November 1st. It's a combination of Christianity and some Native Mexican traditions. Halloween is actually older than Christianity and was absorbed into Christianity as All Saint's Day, All Soul's Day, or All Hallow's Eve. I've heard that Halloween in Britain, Scotland, Wales, Ireland, and Northern Ireland is more traditional and more interesting. I like to study other cultures.

    Traditions are kind of silly... Though I do enjoy the occasional ones. Even Halloween!

    Scandinavian Holiday

    Post by stathmk on Mon Apr 05, 2010 8:25 am

    Thomas, you're from Scandinavia, so could you explain something for me? I was watching "Late Night With Conan O'Brian" and Matt Damon was a guest. He's from The Born Identity movies. He said he went to the area around Scandinavia and met some people on the sidewalk with faces painted yellow and playing tubas. He asked what's going on and somebody said, "It Hymenshlosshen, The Day of The Ghost." I had heard of it only one other time. I must be spelling it wrong in the blank on dictionary.com because it doesn't register anything. So could you explain it to me please?

    Another tradition with goodies involves Bofona in Italy. I don't know if I'm spelling her name right. Bofona is a witch who's kind of like Santa Claus, The Easter Bunny, or The Tooth Fairy. She leaves goodies in children's shoes. My brother-in-law's mother is Italian and told me about her.

    "Hymenschlossen", "Gurkegurken" etc. is just one of all those faux "Dutch" words (Though they sound German) that are often refered to as Scandinavian on American TV. However, we have next to nothing in common with the Dutch, nor cultural or lingual. And people with yellow faces playing tuba... Well, I guess that's why they call it television. It's not real, it's comedy. And I'm so pissed that Conan's no longer on the air. Jay Leno is just a squeaky-voiced foot. (Am I the only one who thinks his face looks like a foot? Guess so.)

    American Civil War Legos?

    Odd Holidays

    Post by stathmk on Tue Apr 06, 2010 8:25 am

    So, I guess that Hymenschlossen or Gurkegurken translated mean Day of The Ghost? Is it the Trinity ghost, as in The Trinitys Father, Son, and Holy Ghost? I dont know.

    I think that the oddest day in America is Groundhog Day, February 2nd. Somebody said that it sometimes falls on the same day as Purim. I dont always keep track of Jewish holidays. Somebody else said that its the same day as Candlemas, the conception of Jesus.

    Anyways, the Groundhog Day story supposedly from German immigrants is that if the groundhog comes out of his hole in ground, sees his shadow, and goes back underground, then there are 6 more weeks of winter. The tilt of the Earth orbiting the Sun causes seasons, not a groundhog.

    There are some days in America that never caught on. There was National High Five Day in April 2007. I was born on August 10th, and I saw on an August 10th on a show like Access Hollywood or Entertainment Tonight that it was Walk Around in Your Underwear Day. Then they showed clips of underwear and lingerie models walking around the subway station in their underwear or lingerie. Not everybody has the body to walk around in their underwear or lingerie in public.

    Late Night Talk Show Hosts

    Post by stathmk on Tue Apr 06, 2010 8:33 am

    I think that Conan OBrians replacement, Jimmy Fallon from Saturday Night Live, isnt as funny. I would say that hes good at voice impersonations and playing instruments, but that hes not very funny.

    I thought that one of Conan OBrians jokes from about 7 years ago was hilarious. He said, Mike Tyson decided to cheat on his wife when he had heard that Michael Jordan cheated on his wife. Mike Tyson, if youre listening, Michael Jordan just jumped off the Brooklyn Bridge.

    I like to watch Jay Lenos Headlines and Jaywalking. My favorite headline or advertisement was for counseling or a mental health clinic. Leno said, This is the most insensitive headline Ive ever seen. Then he showed it and it was:

    Do You Have Schizophrenia? You Are Not Alone.

    Thats just really hilarious or really insensitive.

    You've already called him a foot. For a second there I thought that you were also going to call him a boob since you don't seem to like him as much.

    Here is an update.
    Level 3 is done, but I forgot what the name of the level is Sad
    Anyways, the point is, due to current circumstances, I don't have time to make maps. But rest assured, Sod Haven Style IS NOT going to be a dead project that never gets worked on in the future.
    The next level I'm planning to build is called "Lebensraum". It means living space in German, and was a slogan used to promite Hitler's ideas way back then. And the level is actually about living space since I will be using Wolf3d static objets for general living (tables, stove, etc).
    I asked Ack to do level 21 of SHS, but he has not responded in a while.
    Cheers!

    Yar, the SHS is not dead, indeed it isn't. I just did two levels, Lebensraum and Purple Blues. (Level 6 and 8, respectively). I think I am trying to get inspiration from some mods I can play (seeing as that I can only play SDL). I just popped in Novowolf, and hopefully now I can make better levels! Very Happy

    As always, if you play one of my more recent levels, and you think there is some advice you could give me to help make it better, I'm all for it!
