Out of the Blue

Today is the 35th anniversary of the first man to walk on the moon!

Do Trade Shows Benefit Gamers? on The Adrenaline Vault offers an interesting opinion piece on the topic. I have disagreements with their ideas about the state of PC gaming, but as for trade shows, I have to admit my first impression of my first E3 was to wonder how much showing a game at the Expo ends up adding to its eventual retail price. It's probably not as much as I imagine, but it's not nothing either. Anyway, I think I agree that trade shows don't directly benefit gamers at all. But after all, they are trade shows, and they probably do benefit the trade...

You have to ingest a shit-ton of food to gain weight like that

i agree to an extent, but my mom is a perfect example against that logic. she graduated high school weighing 95 pounds (she;s only 5' 1") and now she is not "obese" though she is more than a little chubby. how she gained the weight i have no idea, nor does she... i watched her for years and years eat yogurt or a very small bowl of cereal for breakfast, a rice cake and salad for lunch, and have a reasonable dinner. she rarely snacked on anything or had dessert, and when she did she did it in moderation as she was very conscious about her weight. she would drink a single can of soda over a THREE DAY period. (she bought some plastic-lid thing that kept it carbonated - this was before soda came in plastic bottles) the rest of the time it was water or crystal lite, and some coffee as well. she went to jazzercize (remember that?!?) 3 times a week, was very active in keeping the house clean, laundry done, rasing 4 kids, working full time, etc etc... and *nothing* she did lost her a single pound. she has tried walking, biking, Nordic Trak... nothing works for her.

i guess what i'm saying is, not all overweight people are to blame for their blight... though i do whole-heartedly agree that the vast (heh, vast) majority of them are...
