    Thumbs up Durable Xbox

    In a bout of anger today (its been a long, long week), I threw the Xbox clear across the room, and tossed it back to its original spot. I'll be damned if the thing didnt survive the whole thing. It seems to turn on just fine as well.

    Kudos MS, your the first one to design a console I couldnt break the first try.

    Ron,

    After 21 years, I have fully come to terms with myself when enraged. You could say I am best friends with my anger, its always around keeping me company! I have my daily 5 minute relaxation periods, though I refer to them more as “quickies”. I set realistic expectations, usually the goals I set fowarth are attainable by a day to day routine. I took a few steps back and breathed a few times… each time something happens. I knock over something, trip over the dog, step in dog ****/puke, you name it…. Its allergy season, breathing, what the hell is that? Where’s my inhaler? $*#(!*! I just spilt water on my desk on the JBLS and Pioneer…. Just wonderful.

    You have to understand that although your x-box has survived a violent assault and not suscumb to the physical cruelty of the moment it very well may have suffered deep emotional stress which can be long lasting and rise to the surface during future gaming experiences especially ones involving violence.

    X-box offers a special disc to relieve the stress and let your x-box reveal its true feelings about the incident it suffered, my understanding is that each of these lasts 30 days and is specially coated with Prozac.

    Just thought you would want to know. :D

    Brawl breaks out at anger management assembly...

    http://www.cnn.com/2004/US/South/04...t.ap/index.html

    WOODLAWN, Maryland (AP) -- A brawl broke out during an anger management assembly at a suburban high school.

    Two people were arrested and 11 students were suspended after a shoving match escalated into a melee during Thursday's assembly.

    Authorities said a confrontation between a student's mother and a group of girls who had been bothering her daughter turned into a shouting match, and led to pushing and hitting, before the crowd of 750 students erupted into "chaos," said C. Anthony Thompson, principal of Woodlawn High School.

    The melee began as students on stage acted out peaceful ways to resolve conflict during the assembly was organized by Sheppard Pratt Health System.

    "People were climbing over seats and started fighting about stupid stuff," said ninth-grader Melissa Parks.

    "Unfortunately, that original incident at the assembly became the catalyst for other fights," said Douglas J. Neilson, a spokesman for Baltimore County schools.

    It took about 15 minutes to defuse the situation, Thompson said.

    The mother, who was not identified because she had not been brought before a commissioner, was to be charged with trespassing and disrupting school activities, said Officer Shawn Vinson, a spokesman for the police department.

    The daughter, who was not identified because she is a minor, was to be charged with second-degree assault, he said.

    Thompson said some of the suspended students might be recommended for expulsion.
