I ordered one of those Firesheel RBGs. It could come in handy if I need to put down any insurgencies at the office


Or just blind your boss when you want to leave early...

If you wake up at a different time and in a different place, could you wake up as a different person?

how is it that after 100 years of auto manufacturing experience worldwide, stuff like this still happens.
I'm reminded of the following :

Narrator: A new car built by my company leaves somewhere traveling at 60 mph. The rear differential locks up. The car crashes and burns with everyone trapped inside. Now, should we initiate a recall? Take the number of vehicles in the field, A, multiply by the probable rate of failure, B, multiply by the average out-of-court settlement, C. A times B times C equals X. If X is less than the cost of a recall, we don't do one.

Business woman on plane: Are there a lot of these kinds of accidents?

Narrator: You wouldn't believe.

Business woman on plane: Which car company do you work for?

Narrator: A major one.

but on the other hand... mmmmm cookies....

Kotor2 was good but had a really lackluster ending. A very good Clue'ish who dun it type of story and some nice improovements over the first game.

But fer the love of god, isn't there any games out there anymore with really good endings? I'm so tired of drab, cliff hangers.

i'd like to see one with an actual select-fire switch allowing single, burst and full modes. couldn't be much more difficult to make than that gatling monster.

funny, there's an aftermarket product for real semi-auto rifles that allows pseudo-full-auto fire in exactly the same manner as described for the Firewheel. doesn't really work very well and it's not much better than just manually repeatedly pulling the trigger real fast, but if you can get the position and rhythm just right, the body of the gun moving forward after recoil will cause the trigger to be pulled again. cheesy but fun.

but it's still hard to find a server that can handle more than 8 people.

Already handled: I have personal access to a 20 player server that plays fine at that amount.

By the way, are people's finals more or less over? I'd like to start getting the BluesNews HL2DM match going.

I think your confused. Think about it; how many people here can say (honestly) that school is more important than games?

I'm all for a Blue's News HL2DM match, but it's still hard to find a server that can handle more than 8 people. I'm just glad the hand cannon magnum no longer kills me when I get shot in the foot.
