Idiots.

But, but, but Under 18s have all that disposable income!

Yes, I saw the lengthy blog. I did not see proof. The girl slept with five people, most of whom were journalists.
Nathan whatever was the most discussed, and he seems to have not only not reviewed her game but only mentioned it twice.

And, frankly, do you guys not think other industries have people that sleep with journalists? I'd imagine Erin Andrews has slept with a few athletes. Of course, to many of the men here, that would be her using her body to get access to exclusives, not, you know, the mirror of here and athletes using their bodies to get coverage.

Yeah, I didn't really see any quid pro quo with Grayson. I was not interested enough to check out anyone else. There's a bit of line skirting going on here, but no one has really crossed it yet. There are much more egregious examples of journalists sleeping with their subjects, like the John Edwards and David Petraeus scandals.

Has a single man in this industry been accused of fucking his way to a job without any evidence being shown?

Given that 99% of the people in power in the game industry are straight males, it's much more challenging for men to sleep their way to the top.

That blackbird is a bastard. WTF Blackie? So funny when one lady gets pecked and thinks it's the guy behind her.

I bet it hurt though. I got bit on the head by a horsefly a couple summers ago and that hurt like a mofo for an hour.

The behemoths of the World Tank Biathlon.

Sounds like this could be a game mode in World of Tanks.

EDIT: Watching the vid now (it's 90M, but I'm only going to watch about 5). It looks pretty cool. I wonder why US, Israel, France, GBR, and other countries didn't participate. It's mostly old Soviet block countries.

Here's a vid of that rocket exploding. Looks like it janks right before they detonate it. Maybe that was the problem?

I have a buddy who has been a martial artist for 20 years, practicing nearly daily and even had some street fights. He's not really one to be afraid of anyone or anything, but as soon as the Dr. pulls out the needle to give him a shot, he faints. It's just hard to predict what will set you off.

I could handle watching it happen to someone else, but I would not want to have been awake while they were doing anything like that to me.

So, I guess you didn't watch that decapitation the other day? My wife wanted to watch it, but I said "Fuck that noise. Not gonna give those ISIS bastards the satisfaction."

Part of the reason that most of those companies can get away with that crap is that they are either functional monopolies (Comcast, Facebook, Twitter) or industry leaders (OK Cupid). That South Korea technique would never fly in the states, though. You'd be arrested for assault or theft and also sued blind in civil court.

Damn, that thing is nigh undetectable. I only ever use my card at Costco or the supermarket, never at any ATMs.

Given that most drug markets stay afloat with terrible customer service and a terrible product, I guess anyone who put even a minimal effort into either of those would flourish.

I still have a bunch of games on there from back when they were D2D. I guess i better get around to playing those, as I lost access to some games when D2D was sold to Gamefly.

Hmm, I've got a pending Amazon order. I don't see the banner ad though.

Blue, have you ever thought about putting up a permanent link? Look at the left nav of this site. They have an Amazon link there so you always have access to it.

I liked all the Fast & Furious and the Need For Speed movies. But three years is a little long for what this guy did. Or more serious crimes have too short sentencing...take your pick.
Yeah, I agree three years is a bit much (probably should be a year), but not beyond the pale like threatening Aaron Swartz with 35 years. Still, this guy was pretty brazen and unapologetic about burning movies and actually selling them for personal gain. That's on a different level entirely from people who just torrent.

I've never seen any of the F&F movies. Sounds like I'm not missing much?

That seems completely valid and in line with other punishments that have been meted out for things like rape and such. Oh wait, I forget, most rapists never actually see prison time.
Even fewer pirates ever see jail time. This is one of a handful. While rape convictions are rare, piracy convictions are much rarer, and there are a lot more pirates out there than rapists.

Of course, if you pirate a movie you don't buy it, since every pirated copy is a lost sale, and if you don't buy a movie, you're not paying sales tax (or in the case of the UK: VAT) over it, depriving the government of income.

And THAT, my friends, is the absolute worst fucking crime in any socialist society.
I won't disagree, but I think the main reason for jail time is that this guy was actually burning and selling disks to people. It's one thing to DL something and have your torrent client automatically share it. It's another level entirely to burn disks, sell them, and make $2000 for yourself.
