Not too surprised there Blue, having been out on the US west coast recently(in April) on my way to the asshole of nowhere in the middle of far-north Canada, it's not even the westcost that I remember as a kid in the 80's. You'll like sticking it out on the EC better. Speaking of E3 I haven't been to one since '98, when I actually got paid to go to stuff like that.

Gee, there's a surprise. The US and Israel pull another boneheaded move? No!
I trust the NYT as much as I trust the Toronto Star to be factually accurate and not hire reporters who can lie through a coffee filter.

Until it's picked up and there's an actual "indepth study" by say oh cryptome or someone else, that's about as far as I trust that article.

Interesting, I'm going to have to see if I can get my BiL to give me a scan/translation of their license contract. I know in the NA version it says that you can get a refund within 30 days.

Sounds like MrsBlue is the one who needs to spend more time with him (I believe you said he was a mamma's boy?), assuming he's acting out because of her absence. Did the issue not start until her trip, or did it happen before then?


I'd agree with that. My sisters dog is the same way when she takes off and I'm taking care of him. He gets better after a few days, but he's also a habitual licker when nervous so it's easy to spot when he's getting worried. He heads to the leather couch, starts licking it, or desk and licks it, or the floor.

Telling Facebook not to use your info is like telling the rain to not get you wet.

I didn't hate the ending like everyone else. Sure it could have been better, but to me it was more bizarre than anything else. I have seen many many worst endings. Fallout 3 before Broken Steel and Bioshock just to name a few. Or the sopranos where it just cuts to black randomly.
There was nothing redeeming about tossing in a new character at the last movement who used it's grand vast AI intellect to give flawed circular reasoning. FO3's ending wasn't great, then again if you did things the wrong way in FO that was the same way the ending was too. But I don't watch TV, so I guess I can't comment on that.

Yeah you should really wait until they fix the ending, just saying. Otherwise it'll sap your enjoyment out of the first two.

I still have my I76 discs and listen to the funk on them. A new I76 would be a day one purchase for me!
Sadly both working copies of my I76 discs require either a Voodoo card, or a Matrox card. And I can't get any of my voodoo cards to work.

You might want to rethink that statement and google up Vince Li.
Yeah manno. Just remember, he's allowed out on 'supervised' day patrols in the general public now.

BT torrent traffic booms? Okay yeah not really surprised there. Not forgetting that in Asia it's cheaper to run your own private BT networks too. Also wonder if sandvine can tell the difference between serviced BT(game patches/etc) an filesharing BT.

It's the insanity of the first one that made it so fun. I never completed any races, I destroyed my competition and ran over everything that moved. But should be very interesting to see, I think I own 4 or 5 copies of the original 2 or 3 of those came bundled with videocards though.

Then video games taught me headshots are often too difficult and to aim for center mass instead. Besides, how many pedestrians wear kevlar?
Funny enough, up here in Canadaland they make you train to put 3 rounds(in 6sec) into the head of a prisoner with your 9mm before they let you get out of depot(rcmp and federal prison guards). Centre mass only comes into play if they're more than 23ft away now.

Based on what I read, I think this study shows that shooting video games make you better shooters in real life. Kind of like going into the military makes you a more efficient killer.
If that was true, I wouldn't have missed hitting the target out of the first two clips I emptied out of a glock on a range.

So this part is a little vague but I can at least determine that you don't want the government giving people money if they earned it because of senseless reason. What would you say the inane reasons are? Who determines what is inane?

I just picked a random reason...
I like when government gives people money to build and maintain roads.

I'm sure you don't think that's senseless, sorry... What are the inane reasons? It's hard to argue with an *x*.
It wasn't vague at all. The problem is you're believing that all government is essential, your first choice for *x* was roads instead of say foodcare programs, or some such. There's a fundamental difference between the two, not only is there a difference between the two, but private groups like churches, synagogues, and the like along with private business do a much better job at doing them.

These are called donation based services. And funny enough they do work very well. Roads though, different story different subset.

By the way, anyone thinking that Obama has been great for sunshine and dasies. You're now looking at a 51.7% DC and 36.2 CA youth unemployment rate this summer that's getting into european territory.
