Formerly one of the best soap opera for men EVER! That was before the story suddenly went bonkers and the WWE proved to be a federation of wussies, not men.
Their name used to be WWF (World Wrestling Federation), but due to a lawsuit from an organization with panda representation, they changed it to WWE. I just stopped watching after that. How could they possibly let a bunch of animals beat them? That's why we're humans. We eat animals like pandas, not bow to them.
Aside from that, all of my favorite wrestlers which I had known for years were beginning to disappear from the ring, so I stopped watching in order to keep my old fashion ideal wrestling image. It's great, except the latest wrestling game which I like to play is WWF No Mercy on the N64.
Stone Cold - The supreme bad ass
The Rock - The most charismatic man in sports entertainment
Gilbert - A Goldberg ripoff who is just hilarious
These are the wrestlers I remember.
That strange place in your town that everyone believes people should go to, but no one actually goes to.

Al Capone or Alphonse Capone is undoubtedly the most famous gangster in the world.
However, he is in NO way, shape, or form the most powerful who ever live. Most people believe he is the most powerful just because he is the most famous. Actually, there were many more gangsters who were more powerful than he was.
Also, he was not the most influential. Most sources believe Lucky Luciano is the most influential gangster who ever lived.
There are so many misconceptions running around Al Capone mainly, once again, because he is simply the most famous. If one were to take into account every gangster who ever lived and rank them according to power and influence, then Capone would rank very high, but he would be nowhere near the top. One's best bet on getting proper information about Al Capone is to read it from Wikipedia or CrimeLibrary.
Al Capone; the gangster Chicago still hates to this day.
Arnold Schwazenegger is....half man, half governor.
He proves to be an unbeatable candidate. How does he prove this? By blasting the liberal left and get away with it! Even George W. Bush wouldn't be able to do that!
Only one man can make a remark that offends homosexuals and get away with it...
Only one man can have a history of sexual harassment and have women at his rallies holding up signs that says 'you can harass me any day!'...
Only one man can motivate people to vote in something other than the presidential election...
Governator: Gray Davis, I shall terminate you!
Gray Davis: All that ass-kissing and I get booted because of a popular movie star! Damn, I must have been a bad governor!
Average voter: Good job, genius. You spotted the problem years after the voters did.

2)The second most important thing to learn next to language. Math has an application in almost everything you do. Without math, the world would be a sad place.
3)An impressive concept which you could use to make dumb women think you're another Isaac Newton

3)Ooohhhh, you're like Albert Einstein!
4)In middle school, I got B's in math and D's in English. In high school, I got D's in math and B's in English. What happened?
The mainstream substitution for cocaine. Not necessarily safer, but the addictive component is 99.9% more potent, the high is 100x more fun, and the length is all the money you have.

Once upon a time during the era of Nintendo's mega-popular console, the NES, there was a company named Konami.
This company had a developer named Hideo Kojima, who became the main face for Konami's most popular games at the time. Castlevania, Metal Gear, Contra, and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. All popular among gamers and all go on to have popular sequels.
Although they lay dormant (with the exception of a Castlevania and TMNT game) during Nintendo's godlike SNES days, they exploded onto the scene at maximum velocity on the PSX.
Along with Castlevania: Symphony of the Night (highly acclaimed by fans and critics), they also released Metal Gear Solid, which revolutionized games by improving the concept of cinematic gaming beyond anything developers had done before (including SquareSoft). Along with these titles, Konami created many excellent series such as Winning Eleven, Dance Dance Revolution, Silent Hill, Suikoden, and Vandal Hearts.
However, it is even here that one can see the foreshadowing of Konami's future. On the N64, they released their first 3D Castlevania, but it turned out to be a failure. This failure was made all the more painful by the fact that their PSX Contra games were also failures.
Finally, with the arrival of the PS2, Konami unleased onto the world Metal Gear Solid 2...and it marked the beginning of the end. While a commercial success and received well by many critics, it was quickly realized that the success came from love of the original Metal Gear Solid on the PSX. This was made apparent when Metal Gear Solid 3 was released. It is all too obvious that your game is a failure when it sells for $10 to $20 on eBay while it is still $40 to $50 in stores.
The same situation occured for their other series, Silent Hill. Silent Hill 2 sold well due to timing and brand name, but Silent Hill 3 and Silent Hill 4 didn't fare nearly as well. In addition to these failures, there existed a problem of Konami continuously porting games a long time after they're already released (usually on PS2) on other consoles.
Now when you release a game, then it is good if you port it something like 4-5 or less months later. However, porting a game something like a year later is, surprisingly, not good. You see, by then, excitement over the game has died off. Also, if you plan on remaking an older game, you might want to try actually REMAKING it. See, Capcom's Resident Evil remake on the GameCube is a good idea of a remake. The graphics/gameplay/EVERYTHING changes somewhat. Taking a game, updating the graphics and adding changes from it's sequel doesn't constitute a good remake, unfortunately.
Also unfortunate is that Konami doesn't seem to be showing any indication of stopping. Some good news is that the new Castlevania on the PS2, which is 3D, is much better than the N64 one. In lieu of all the bad news, though, it doesn't seem to make much of a difference. Hopefully, Konami will clean up their act and improve their games, but for now, it seems like they're really depending on the Metal Gear Solid and Suikoden fanbase.
Konami: Long ago, they were one of the most consistently brilliant companies ever.
