Comment: Erector Sets for future engineers! (Score 1) 458

A lot of people don't realize that Erector sets are still in production, that was one of my favorite toys I got for Christmas when I was around age 10, though I wouldn't recommend them for ages much younger than that. I always loved it because they forced you to do a little more pre-planning and design before getting creative because you couldn't just pull the blocks apart when you wanted to make structural changes, you had to unfasten all of the hardware.

BioShock 2's First DLC Already On Disc 466

Posted by Soulskill

An anonymous reader writes with this quote from 1Up: "Trouble is brewing in Rapture. The recently released Sinclair Solutions multiplayer pack for BioShock 2 is facing upset players over the revelation that the content is already on the disc, and the $5 premium is an unlock code. It started when users on the 2K Forums noticed that the content is incredibly small: 24KB on the PC, 103KB on the PlayStation 3, and 108KB on the Xbox 360. 2K Games responded with a post explaining that the decision was made in order to keep the player base intact, without splitting it between the haves and have-nots."

Put a bluetooth in your ear and loudly talk about how you're going to "Fire his ass as soon as you get back in the office". You can also add something about how you "don't pay him (whatever exorbitant amount) to make screw-ups like that on multi-million dollar projects". Make them think you're so important that you couldn't be expected to expend the calories necessary to tote around a larger one.
