Correcting people doesn't help when a society is in decline... It is individual responsibility to improve throughout life, which is why most people don't. American soceity/culture doesn't allow this. Constructive Criticism has almost been stamped out like a bad thing.
A clip is a clip and a magazine is a magazine, it is only ok to be wrong (yep, no gray area, you are just wrong) only because our society doesn't allow us as individuals to help improve our society.

Moving along to topic...

Anyway, I see a lot of very Duke like one liners in this thread. I remember the first time "That is one DooMed space Marine. That was totally awesome to me. Genius... who at the time didn't know DooM?

I donít see it as a crutch as previously mentioned really... I see it as a form or recognition. Kind of like Weird Alís music... If you make it to Weird Al status, you are famous.

Anyway, I donít have any great ideas for new Duke References. I have spent most of my hours playing Grand Theft Auto 3-San Andreas the last few years. I am sure someone could come up with some GTA references.

I enjoy troll-resistant threads like this.

YES! I do wear my Duke Xtreme t-shirt every day!* :)

*(Not really, sometimes I wear my Time to Kill t-shirt... like while I am washing my other Duke shirts for instance.)
