You guys need to stay out of the markets and trading. Why? You haven't figured it out yet, the "hype stock" as I call it?

If you were smart and had money, you would have bought into Groupon today, then sell at the end of the day or Monday morning, depending on your taste for risk.

At roughly $20-22 a share, it currently stands at $28, you would have made about 30% right now.

It's not about fact.
It's not about logic.
It's about short sales.

Learn about it. The stock market is NO different then gambling at Vegas except it is all about timing and hype.

Anyways, by the end of the day I will be around $2000-4000 richer and you won't be. And, I will be rid of Groupon.

Buying low and selling high is not a "short sale." I guess you were able to buy the stock at the IPO price; most people won't be able to. If it's just like gambling at Vegas, how do you "know" how much richer you'll be?

damn they send the Taliban spokesman to Yale, but the LulzSec spokesman goes to prison? Somebody's got their priorities out of wack.

Civ V is basically the same as the other Civs, so if you still find Civ in general fun, you'll find Civ V fun. Otherwise, it doesn't bring anything hugely new to the series.

The hex map, lack of unit stacking, and just generally not having to build a million units to defend yourself are all huge in my book, I could never go back to Civ IV.

Man I've been shaving with a safety razor for a month now and I'm STILL drawing blood. I don't think I'll ever get good at this shit

DO NOT use a safety razor like you would a cartridge razor, you shouldn't be pushing it into your skin like you would with a cartridge. Also you need to have it at an angle such that the blade is pointing into your skin. This is the guide I used when I first started wet-shaving:

I still have no interest in playing the kind of games I like on a portable device with a small screen and imprecise controls.

Right, two years from now an ipad may be as powerful as an xbox360, but the UI will still be optimized for lying on your couch, reading a webpage. The UI is just not conducive to playing most video games.

Carmack lost his mojo long, long ago.

There's nothing to indicate that project is real-time, as the reumes just say "strategy," and if it's become RTS I'm going to be more disappointed than I've been in years.

If it's not an RTS, and it's Alpha Centauri 2, I'll be more excited than I've been in years.

Internet access is a privilege, not a right. Unless I'm mistaken, courts still regularly prohibit convicted hackers from using the internet, just like they regularly prohibit convicted drunk drivers from driving.

This is the first year that I think Google's April Fools is just not funny at all. Using motions to communicate is supposed to be funny? Have they never heard of sign language?

I just hope and pray ME2 doesn't suffer from DA2 Syndrome. But seeing as how it's only getting ~ 20 months of development time, I'm not exactly filled with confidence. :(

Creston: Mass Effect 2 was released more than a year ago. What the hell are you talking about?

You guys do know that you have to create a GFWL offline account for the pirate version too, right? You can't save if you don't.

There's tons of hits, including youtube demonstration videos, when I google for "create gfwl offline account."
