If you think it is unfair to poke fun at people selling $900 virtual spaceships for a game that does not yet exist. You may want to double check your grip on reality.

Do you think it's already time to shout "Burn the witches" and call the Spanish Inquisition?

Seeing as Porsche has previously been sued about this car and lost (at least the article reads that way to me), I give her a reasonable chance to get some cash out of them.

Just like many free to play games like Game of War and Candy Crush, which make 100s of millions of dollars, this game is being floated by a couple thousand whales with OCD and lots of disposable income. The difference is that at least GoW and CC have actual completed games to play. Once these whales lose faith in CIG, the project is F'd. But hey, we'll always have Arena Commander.

Okay, this is off-topic, but I have to say -- the best thing about this, is they have a commercial which basically shows this. The pressing the "help" key, then the "more help" key, then the "OMG" key. Absolutely hilarious -- down load our app and press keys to send us money!

As far as SC... more of the same. Move along...

Does anyone know why the Pigskins Pick'em page is showing dashes through the week 2 result?

Wow, nice picking in our pick 'em league -- 13 of 14 by Radman and Pigeon. I got the "upset" pick on Philly, but missed on the Browns, Ravens and Chargers. I can live with that.

And yes, the amount of news coverage this got was insane.

I believe there was a case of a home owner both being ticketed for improper watering (or some such) and for letting their lawn brown.

They have to go through the drug approval process for a drug that is already on the market? PLEASE tell me it isn't that stupid.

Apparently, this is an easy problem to solve. The medicine patent expired decades ago, but distribution laws prevent anyone else from making it?
Interesting, I was wondering what the deal was since the drug had been around for decades. I'd like to hear the full explanation of what allows them to have exclusivity. I'd love for whatever that is to be changed.

The ISPs have nothing on drug companies witness this prick although I guess he's backing down at least some -- I'll hold my forgiveness until I learn what price he decides on.

Despite only getting 7 picks right (so far) I did relatively better this week than last -- so I'll take it. And the difference between me and the leader this week are all games I considered picking the other way... so at least I'm thinking of making the right picks...

My Last Man Standing league was crushed this week. 225 of 286 entries were eliminated. Another 25 (including me) are depending on Indy winning tonight.

Listen, it's possible he actually has some insight into financial trends. The bugaboo is him claiming exact dates, he can't know that. Look at the mortgage bubble from 2008. Almost no one saw it coming, a couple of guys did. However, even they would tell you they didn't know when exactly the bubble would burst. Just that they knew it was unsustainable and that eventually it would. So, they shorted things in such a way that when it did happen, they became billionaires. This guy probably is a smart guy, but there is no way he is predicting exact dates of future financial events.

He was predicting specific dates well in advance of them and has nailed them all. There's no con here. He's just tapped into a model that by tracking global financial data has led to hyper accurate predictions of what the market is going to do.
Okay, exactly why isn't he a multi-billionaire if this is true?

If the movie ever makes it Showtime/HBO/whatever -- I'll try to steel myself and watch it. But I suspect it will be like watching a magic act, lots of flash not a lot of substance. Just because I don't know how a magician does his trick/illusion doesn't mean I believe in magic. I suspect that's how I'll feel after watching this -- possibly entertaining, but nothing having to do with the real world.
