Don't suppose anyone knows a really easy way to turn off the permission system on ext3 filesystems?

Gotta love game bugs.

We have one spell in our game that freezes bad guys. I believe, just to make it look neat, they decided to not freeze them *entirely*, but rather let them move *very very very slowly*.

Problem is, if you kill them while they're frozen, they keep moving very

very

very

slowly

and they take about two minutes to finish their death animation.

Easy to fix, but it sure does look funny.

"NOOOOOOOOooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo" (almost imperceptibly slowly falls over backwards . . .)

best. legal document. ever.

"The state has the power to protect its citizenry from actual harm, and thus has the power to outlaw one yelling 'Fire!' on a crowded theatre. However, yelling 'Fuck!' in a crowded theatre does not create a clear and present danger to anyone and thus cannot be outlawed. Although they are both four letter words that start with F, the distinction is constitutionally significant."
