Explain your problem first.

Alright, I'll start from beginning...

My brother was borrowing my PS3 system and was downloading stuff off of PSN, games and whatnot. He left for work with the downloads running only to return to them still running, not one finished. They couldn't be canceled at all, and they seemed to be frozen in a glitch, so he unplugged the power cord. When he tried to turn it back on it sounded slightly different, not like it's usual whirring of spinning parts. The green light turned on but it wouldn't show anything on the TV, and the controller proved no feedback. He returned it to me where I promptly tried to troubleshoot the problem and talked with a live chat tech support. S/He told me to enter safe mode and set the settings to default. When I did the system then worked fine, so I thought it was fixed and gave it back to him. When he turned it on the problem was even worse, it makes a higher pitched sound, clicks a couple times, and the previous solution is useless as it says it cannot access something. Return to me, tech chat again, S/He tells me to do the third option on the safe mode screen which will search for active files and junk, but as soon as I do it says it lost connection to the HDD and gives the error code 1008002B, which when I looked it up only applies to game discs that cannot be read. Tech person tells me HDD is broked, warranty is expired as I got the system used, and I need to send it back to whateverplace for repairs.

Sounds most definitely like a hardware problem.
Might be a hard drive read problem so you should start from that. You can get a new 2,5'' hard drive for around 30 bucks.
Also, does the system get hot when you turn it on?

Er, I never checked, I don't imagine so. Could you help me find a suitable hard drive replacement, I searched that as well but being damn near technologically illiterate I have no idea what to look for nor where to look. I'm guessing the system is very pickey, should I tell you what is written on my HDD?

This should work and the reviews confirm it. But i recommend posting this to some playstation forum where there might be people who have more experience with problems like this because it might not be your hard drive and then you just end up wasting 30 bucks.

I bought the 250 GB model of PS3, if I install a 500 GB HDD will that be bad, good, or no difference?

You will just have more space.
And if you do plan on doing it then you might want to use some guides.

Damn, if I knew I could do this I'd just get a crappy 12gb version and save a few bucks! Thank you very much, I'll have to take this gamble unfortunately as I do not have 80+ dollars and have also completely exhausted my patience with this issue.

Also a weak argument because most political activists will work on cases in their own area, rather than the other side of the world. Genetalial mutilation is a problem in the Middle East, not the West.

I agree about the cherry picking part, recently i have been having a fear that we are slowly becoming that which we ourselves have been mocking.

Have you checked the GamerGate Wikipedia page? They've been vandalizing it constantly.

#16 - teranin (10/27/2014) [-]
Gamergate is irrelevant to feminism with the sole exception of critical theory cultural marxist gender feminists. Blatant misandrists pushing ideology. That is why this is significant.

But you have a point, it is still cherry picking.

Can you explain the positive points?
I went to wikipedia and /b/ to read and ask about it, but some studies said it was useful, others said that it was bad, and others said it didn't have any advantajes so it wouldn't be worth the risk to have a circumcision.
/b/ was pretty worthless too.

Didn't do too much in-depth research, but here's what I found on the first few search results from sites apart from the ones that were incredibly biased against it with no legitimate sources:
- A decreased risk of urinary tract infections.
- A reduced risk of some sexually transmitted diseases in men like HIV or HPV.
- Protection against penile cancer and a reduced risk of cervical cancer in female sex partners.
- Prevention of balanitis (inflammation of the glans) and balanoposthitis (inflammation of the glans and foreskin).
- Prevention of phimosis (the inability to retract the foreskin) and paraphimosis (the inability to return the foreskin to its original location).
- Makes it easier to keep the end of the penis clean.

To be fair, some of these positives don't really matter so long as you maintain good hygiene and wear protection when having sex.

Like I said, it's akin to pseudo science with inconclusive results, sometimes there's a correlation other times it's purely coincidence. Possible positives are disease prevention as the membrane of the underside of the foreskin is gone, also with less of a hiding place for bacteria, the penis will grow larger when the subject reaches puberty, and since we still have heavy fluctuations within the testing of what genes and conditions cause penis size this is near unprovable, the penis will be easier to clean, which is actually factual, but for the same reason it would be easy to keep your nails trimmed by amputating your arm, and less sexual promiscuity, but this is logically false as sexual drive is determined by a balance of hormones released by the testicles.

The drawbacks typically outweigh the possible positives, but because it's part of our culture, and retarded pompous teenage sluts think foreskins look gross, it is still common practice even outside of religion, only recently has it been removed from American law that newborns must be circumcised... unfortunately a year too late for me, mind you...

less bacteria means larger growth? Please do explain.
