Mind you, 2013 was sort of a down year for movies. Only one movie grossed more than a billion dollars.
Uh, only 17 ever have. http://www.the-numbers.com/movie/records/

We all know that hard drugs are bad, addiction is bad, and overdosing is bad, so there's no cautionary tale that we have not already learned a long time ago.
A lesson which, apparently, Mr. Hoffman hadn't learned.

How far away are we from having a generation of kids who have tablets, but not PCs? Do we have one already?

Addiction sucks without a doubt. However in the end, especially when you have means as he did, it comes down to will power and wanting to change. This isn't a 20 year old kid who doesn't really understand "life". It's a grown man who I'm assuming knew he had a problem, since he had been to rehab.

He failed himself, he failed his wife and children. Is it sad? Sure. Do his "contributions" lessen his failure? Not in my eyes. They are separate and not to be considered in combination.

My deepest sympathies for his wife, children, other family and friends.

simple fact is you have no clue ... but yeh, why not get on the high horse of ethical superiority? it feels soooo good dont it? mmmmm, superiority - everybody loves it!
Pot meet kettle? I assume you are being sarcastic. Frankly, I am superior to him. Superior in my ability to not get addiction to illegal substances. If that makes me a dick, so be it.

I've only ever played Vanilla. I did do a couple of custom "collect the wool" maps, but they were Vanilla too. This isn't a slight against mods, I think some of them look pretty damn cool. But I like the original enough.

I'll go out on a limb and assume his death hurt his children, ages 10, 8 and 6.

Wow, Philip Seymour Hoffman was only 46? I had assume he was in his late 50s at least. Apparently his May rehab didn't take... I wonder if he was just an idiot who "liked drugs" or was having a "tough time" and drugs was his escape. *shrug* Oh well...

I think it's kind of weird that the PC version has been outsold by mobile platforms, and is doing so well on the 360. I'd have thought it would have been a lot more PC-centric, and it never really occurred to me that it would be fun on a phone or tablet.
I have a friend's kid who plays a lot. Whenever he's taken anywhere he is playing on the tablet. I suspect many of the people buying on platforms other than PC, also have it on the PC.

I'm old enough that I had a favorite team before the Seahawks even existed. I liked the Vikings because Tarkington was so fun to watch and watched them lose three Superbowls. We got the Seahawks in 1976 and I've watched pretty much every game since then and a good deal of it was really ugly.

It was all worth it!

You picked against them in the BTI league? (Thanks!)

On the one hand, I kinda wish I'd been playing Eve Online for the last 10 years and could have be in the thick of this fight. On the other hand, I'm so glad I haven't been.

NK story is a joke, other stories on the site include "Church picks JK Rowling to write new version of the Bible" and "Economics being renamed Having A Guess".
Which is really unfortunate, because it's just about crazy enough to be true.

I remember there being a fair amount of hype behind Vanguard. I never tried it, but from what I read it seemed pretty average at best.

It is quite sad. But why didn't any of those 6 adults stop that kid from going back into the fire.
Take your pick, they were drunk, stoned, or coughing their lungs out from smoke inhalation. But yeah, you're right -- if the 8 year was still functional, you'd hope at least one of the adults was and would have stopped him. We'll probably never really know...

I played on Area 52 -- the issue there was the population was 9 to 1 Horde, fortunately I was Horde. Wonder if that is still the case...

95% of the economic recovery has gone to the top 1% of earners. It's good to be the king.
Well, if they have 95% of the wealth it only makes mathematical sense that 95% of the recovery would go to them.

Personally, my 401k is looking good -- which has me more worried than satisfied. From a low point in Mar 2009 until now my rate of return is over 25%, and the total value has (including additional contributions from me) more than quadrupled. If I knew it would do that again in the next 5 years, I'd be pretty happy, but it isn't going to. The question is, when will the bottom drop out again? I'm sure it will come again, just don't know if it's 2, 5, for 15 years out.
