Good luck Blue

In a related story I had to take my dawg to the vet over the weekend due to him having pink eye. Got some eye drops, and it turns out that, after treats, he loves having eye drops put in his eye.

Its weird, he sits there unblinking wanting these dropped in his eye!

Is pink-eye cross-species communicable? IE, do you have to worry about getting it from your dog? Because that would suck.

That was one of the questions I was gopign to ask the vet, but got side tracked by a work related phone call, (on Saturday!!!)

Im hoping its not, and leaning toward the anser being a 'no' as neither the wife or I have got it yet.

This guy's story is stupid. The chances of winning are ALWAYS 50%. Either you win... or you don't.

But if there's 3 doors, you don't have a 50% chance of being right - you have a 33% chance.

Thank you for trolling, please come back when you've learned some rudimentary math.

Yeah, I confined them all to the guild board, which I think you need to be a member of in order to read...

I like what I see, but I also see definite room for improvement. Control (probably the biggest question) is spot on, but I have gripes about GC emulation, and how it handles hardware...Also (see yesterdays comments) the Virtual Console needs some heavy hitters, ASAP.

It's certainly fun, but I've spent the most time w/ 8 bit Zelda.

No. And the article might be mathematically correct; it is however incorrect on a statistical and probability level. As statistics and probability factors in more then just the fraction of choices as compared to the whole.

If anyone wants one, let me know, send the $$$ and I will go get one for you.
