A car's primary purpose is to advertise the size of a guy's wallet, in order to facilitate picking up chicks.

FTFFY. The kind of chicks that care what you drive have no intention of touching your dick anyway. At least, not until after they've gotten into that wallet.

LOL, check this out:

4/16/14 version of the site

AARC provides a music royalty, generated by the sales of blank CDs and personal audio devices, media centers, satellite radio devices, and car audio systems that have recording capabilities, to its 142,000+ members worldwide.

5/17/14 version:

AARC provides a music royalty, generated by the sales of blank CDs and personal audio devices, media centers, satellite radio devices, and car audio systems that have recording capabilities, to its 142,000+ members worldwide.

And today's version:

AARC provides a music royalty, generated by the sales of automobile infotainment systems, blank CDs, personal audio devices, media centers, and satellite radio devices that have music recording capabilities, to its 300,000+ members worldwide.

I wonder, do they think if they add something to the intro of their terrible, terrible website*, it means they can start collecting royalties on it?

* as the creator and admin of several terrible websites, I know bad when I see it.

Various flavors of Survival Horror; from Alan Wake, that Slenderman game, Rust, etc. Then you have your mobile games (remember cell-phone games from 15 years ago? Yea, me either) like Angry Birds, Punch Quest, etc.

There's also CtOS Mobile, which allows mobile players to engage with console players, a fairly new concept.

Mass Effect 3 had some novel elements, such as the option to skip the action portions and basically turn the game into an interactive movie.

Oh, and Kerbal Space Program! Never played anything quite like that one before.

Also, 'annoyance games,' my term, in which I would classify crap like Flappy Bird and F*uck This Game, which seem designed to irritate the shit out of you.

Of course, there's more to innovation than creating new genres.

Oh, so he's impotent this week, not a tyrant. Thanks for the clarification.

IMO, they (all of them) are impotent every week, because they don't actually come up with anything themselves; rather, they push the legislation their lobbyist friends/corporate masters/what-have-you tell them to push for.

But thanks for making it obvious that you only think in partisan terms. Surprised you didn't call me a racist, too.

Spying on other nations is Constitutional; spying on Americans, without an explicit warrant, is not.

In other words, it's perfectly legal for my nation's government to spy on you, but not on me. I understand your concern, but do not share it; rather, my concern is that the people in charge of our system of law don't seem to think the same laws apply to them, and that's a scary road to go down.

Regardless, I do agree that if you're not worth spying on, then it's a phenomenal waste of resources to do so.

Too fucking bad. As an American, I'm quite comfortable with our intelligence agencies keeping tabs on the rest of the world. I want them watching you.

Yea, well, as an American who gives a fuck about both fiscal responsibility and how Americans are perceived abroad, I respectfully disagree with your idiotic position.

There's no point spending money watching people who don't do anything worth watching.

As someone who's seen a cardboard cutout, I understand completely. Hell, it's pretty obvious what he means.

Of course, if Obama is a cardboard cutout because he takes orders rather than issues them, then it's a reasonable assumption that the same personality defect exists in most of our elected officials.

Probably a lot of the appointed ones, too.

Be sociable. Speak to the person next to you in the unemployment line tomorrow.

Working...
