I see these cards at most retail stores, but have never met anyone that has mentioned they play it.
I could say the same about all the trading card games except for Magic, actually know 2 or 3 people who played that.

WoW was always an empty, cookie-cutter MMO.
Maybe. But even if that's true, they did it better than anyone had before them.

Uh, I would have assumed they were removed long ago considering the decision of starting from scratch. Sounds like a report of a lazy HR person more than anything else....

Yeah, Affleck wouldn't have been my first choice, but I'm willing to wait and see his performance before deciding. But the last three films were so good I rather that they would have waited a bit longer before doing another Batman movie.

News Comments > Steve Ballmer to Retire

Wow -- was watching CNBC and they said today someone bought 20k MSFT $45 Jan 15 calls for $0.75 each. It was up 7.29% today to $34.75. So, basically someone is betting MSFT will go up more than another 30% in the next 16 months. Assuming they meant 20k contracts, which is usually what you do when you talk options, that means someone bet $1.5M.

"Ballmer owns more than 333 million shares of Microsoft. That nearly 4% stake in the company is currently worth $11.4 billion."

Unless your neighbors are jerks, or Hudson and Gunnar-man go berserk more often than you have previously indicated, I'm sure any unhappiness with you will quickly fade.

I'm not happy with the seemingly over the top data collection the NSA appears to have been engaged in (nor was I particularly surprised by it). However, going from there to an assumption that we don't need them at all is naive, at best.

Except for a brief 6 month period, all my cars have been manuals since 1980. But I have to say, I'm thinking this might be my last. Should need a new car around 2020 or so... I might finally cave.

Okay, first of all, that is insane. Second, I don't even understand how he keeps the yo-yo spinning long enough to do the tricks. I'd love to see that and have it explained to me first hand.

Yeah, that was George Fan, who not only developed, but was creator and lead designer of that game. Basically the guy who thought up the entire thing. I'd buy/KS anything the guy does, but he just hasn't been anywhere to be found.
Did he at least get rich on it?

Yeah, that's what I'm going with. He might honestly think he can make a difference and turn MS around. The only question is how long before he sees the reality. Then again, if MS is paying him enough, he may not care...

The economy is so broken I can't figure out why it hasn't collapsed. I make more money than I ever thought I would, and money is still the biggest (nearly only) worry I have. I can't imagine how bad it is for people less fortunate than me. Heck, I'm not even the typical drown yourself in debt stereotype and still I worry about money.

Do they not make clock radios anymore? My wife and I each have one on each side of the bed. The one on her side is 20+ years old and works just as good today as it did when it was new.

Hells yeah. My GE clock radio is probably close to 30 years old and still works like a charm.

Mine is near 40, got it as a Christmas gift when I was in the 8th grade. It is also a GE product, if it ever dies I will cry.
