$8,008.10, but I know that at least 1/4 to a half were free or humble bundle packages.
Eh? Are you saying your total could/should be more because you were buying deals or that the figure is some kind of total of MSRPs and not actual money spent?

Human politics religion is a facade. Tricks disguised as illusions into making people believe they will personally benefit if they support a person or a particular political religious organization. When it comes to politics religion, people are rubes. Their imperfection coupled with innate selfish desires are thoroughly incapable of helping anyone.

I am wimpy -- $636.28.

I don't remember, was Steam required for HL? Or did that happen with HL2? Whichever it was, that's when I got Steam. But it wasn't until many years afterward that I used Steam for anything else.

Also, I dont know a single Christian who is politically neutral.
If they were, Trump might not be president. (was going to say, wouldn't be, but I don't feel like looking up the numbers...)

$16 does seem incredibly cheap for 90 minutes of their time, water, soap and shampoo. Do they also sell all the standard pet products? Food, toys, etc.. If so, they might be using the bathing station as a loss leader to get you in the store.

I'm not sure addiction implies you are doing something you don't enjoy. It is more of an issue of you engaging the activity so much it causes damage to some other portion of your life. And/or a compulsion to continue engaging in the activity despite the damage caused.

As for gaming being an addiction. Anything can be an addiction. It is not gaming that's the problem. The person has a compulsive/obsessive problem which is focused on gaming.

Or that, or any other reasonable alternative to current systems. Instead of spending money keeping the current plants running, the money should be used for development of these other safer systems.

Even if IQ scores are collectively going down, which I wasn't convinced of with the study given. It is a more complicated problem than that. Everyone is so specialized. The modern world isn't "easy". Think about a simple #2 lead pencil. Sells for pennies. Could you make one?

At several levels the modern world is a house of cards. Critical industries reliant on other critical industries, sometimes only found on the other side of the world. I'm not saying a collapse will definitely happen any time soon. But if one did happen, I wouldn't be shocked.

If we could get Pebble-bed reactors running and scalable, or something similar -- that would help. But yeah, the kind of systems we have now should just go away as they reach the end of their lifespans...

Soccer / World Cup question:

Player A gets a yellow card in his team's first match. Player A gets a yellow card in his team's second match. He is now suspended for the next match. Late in the second game he gets a third yellow card. He is removed from the game for getting two yellows in the same game. My question -- is he now only one yellow card from a second suspension? I would assume so, but just wanted to verify.

Yeah Cutter, I mentioned that to you the other day:

Pretty sure the US has you pounded in this category for pharmaceuticals. I mean people were loading up on bus trips to Canada to buy their drugs (and still are for all I know). I would imagine we have you beat in other categories too, but I don't know what they are off the top of my head. That said, given my reasonably high quality economic situation, in comparison to most of the world, I'm not going to complain about it too much...

I thought Solo was pretty *meh*. Not great, not terrible, but not really a lot there to cheer about. I think possibly the writers were constrained by fitting things into the known ST universe. But whatever their excuse, the writers won't win any awards..

Why would anyone want to play this?
Different strokes for different folks. Whatever floats your boat.

I've been watching competitive cycling on television since 1985. Which as a resident of the US makes me pretty unusual. But I'll be damned if I have any idea why anyone would want to play the Cycling Manager game put out every year...

Late to the topic... can I assume the response to this announcement is as repetitive as the announcement itself?

As I'm sure someone has said, what MS needs to do is stop talking, and start walking. Make a great game and gamers will beat a path to your door. Or more to the point, STFU.

Sounds like fun.
This ride would make me toss my cookies for sure...
As long as I hadn't eaten recently (within the last hour or so) I'm pretty sure I would not throw up. I suspect closing your eyes would probably help significantly if you were having problems...

Yeah, FIFA is worried about it too. With only two games they are concerned about an increase in mutual draws -- ie... in their second games two teams playing each other could know if they draw, they both advance. This already happens sometimes when the teams play three games. They haven't set anything in stone yet, but are considering settling groups ties with shoot outs.

i would hope canadia and mejico get bids too since they're expanding the field from 64 to 80 teams anyway.
They are expanding the field in 2026, but it is from 32 to 48. The current plan is to have 16 three team groups, with each team only playing two games in the group round -- instead of the normal three. Two teams advance to a 32 team knockout round.
