A rubbish advert which has unfortunatly made it past urbandictionary.com
guy 1: What did you go on last night?
guy 2: Indiana Jones Wiki
guy 1: was it good?
guy 2: Yeah, it was interesting but I saw a snorgtees ad
guy 1: OOOOHHHH NNNNNOOOOO!!!!!! Snorgtees has made it onto other websites! It's spreading like a plague!
A new medieval empire-building which has had mixed reviews, it says "play unnoticeably" however on wikipedia it says "despite the fact that Evony does nothing to hide itself from network logs and its URL and cookies will still be present in a web browser's history like any other website." Also a running slogan for the campaign was "Save the queen!", although within the game, there is no queen to save.
Not only that, it has been accused of breaching copyright laws, as it says on wikipedia: "The game and website currently uses graphics from various games including Microsoft's Age of Empires: The Age of Kings and Age of Mythology as well as descriptions copied directly from Sid Meier's Civilization III and Civilization IV, as well as from other Mods and Wikipedia.
During the ongoing advertising campaign a particular advert featuring a fairy was apparently taken from the website costumecraze.com. The owners were subsequently informed and blogged about this."
And there was another controversey about the developer corporation, Universal Multiplayer Game Entertainment being linked to WoWMine, a Chinese operation known for gold mining. also criticism made regarding the game has been removed from Evony's forum by moderators.
guy 1: Have you played Evony?
guy 2: No, I've been reading about it on Wikipedia, it as been accused of some serious crimes, being linked to illegal operations, copyright issues and unethical and misleading adverts.
guy 1: I don't care, I like it
One of the coolest film heroes of all time, born in Princeton, New Jersey in 1899 (Indy not Harrison Ford), probably the best known archeologist in the world, Indy isn't official called Indiana but rather Henry Jones Jnr, but he was very fond of the family dog, Indiana so he became known as Indiana, his dad insists he is called Junior and this angers Indy as we find out in The Last Crusade, during the war he and his MI6 buddy, Hale, went on many adventures to stop the Nazis and Japanese getting sources of paranormal power, e.g in Indiana Jones and the Army of the Dead, Jones and Hale travel to Haiti to stop an army of undead! In 1947, he defeated the Babylonian god, Marduk (please play Indiana Jones and the Infernal Machine) and in 1957 he went in search of his friend, Harold Oxley who had lost his marbles and ended up finding a crystal skull, which if returned gives the returner a "gift", to know everything and found he had a son (Mutt Williams a.k.a Herny Jones III), Mutt wasn't happy about this early on but it sunk in. During the 90's he still travelled, much to the opposition of his family, who thought he should settle down at nearly 100, and was a lecturer, and was willing to share stories of his youth with anyone who would listen.
a cool archeologist,

Marcus Brody- Can we go home now?

An example of an argument between a teen, who was a kid in the 90's and a young kid (the teen is my age but isn't me)
Kid: born '97, digging it! :-D
Teen: '97?! You were only 3 in 2000!
Teen: You start being a kid when you're 5-7
Kid: When were you born?
Teen: 1993, so I was 7 in 2000
Kid: The 90's culture didn't end until 2002
Teen: So, you where a kid during the time of the 90's culture but not the decade itself
Kid: You could class me as a 90's kid, because I was a kid in the time we still had the culture
Teen: In a way, but you were not a kid in the actual decade
Kid: You don't have to be a kid in the 90's to be a '90s kid!, you just have to be in the culture
Teen: So you are a part-'90s kid, lets leave it at that
