Osmos was probably the most relaxing game I've ever played.

The beginning of the Start menu era.
I think it took like 5 major versions of the OS before they removed the word "Start" from the menu button and changed it to the Windows icon (Windows Vista?).
But even to this day (and after they removed the menu in Windows 8), we all still call it the Start menu.
"Honey, how do I turn off the computer?"
"Click on Start..."

You are making it sound like you enjoyed the inventory Tetris! Easily the worst part of that game.
No, I also thought it was the worst part. I didn't like most of the mechanics introduced in SS2. But there were a lot of them.

I, for one, welcome our new full-height wall overlords.
Open office plans being dead is an interesting change. We went to half height cubes a few years ago. You can't see anyone sitting down, but as soon as you stand, you can see everyone. I like the openness, but I see the need for full-height cubes for health reasons.

Dude, Idris Elba is a major Hollywood star.
- Bad guy in Hobbes and Shaw
- Heimdall in half a dozen Marvel movies
- Bad guy in Star Trek Beyond
- Lead in Dark Tower movie
- Pilot in Prometheus
And of course, his greatest role: Stacker Pentecost in Pacific Rim!
Between TV and movies, he's been almost 100 shows. He was next in line for James Bond until he turned it down.
