No it's not. The problem with USPS is that they have to pre-pay pensions 70 years out. No other Government agency or private company needs to do this, that's purely USPS regulation thanks to Congress. That is their main hurdle, not the unions or employees "getting paid too much" (seriously, do you even know any postal workers?).

So you want Nintendo to have 6 brand-new 1st party developed games at launch? Name one console that has done this in the history of consoles. Go on. Try it.

Also, a Zelda FPS is the dumbest idea ever. Your idea of refreshing a genre is by shoehorning another tired genre into it?

Yeah man, I like my phones to be made of glass so that the slightest little bump can crack the thing into billions of pieces. Not to mention the thing getting covered in fingerprints. Face it, Apple products look really great when you're first opening the box, and never again. It's the Apple way!

Wow. The Valve bite-n-smile shills are out in force today.

Steam sucks, shill, because DRM sucks. There's no disclaimer on a product that says "BTW, this product will not work for XX hours a year on average because the DRM servers occasionally go down." Perhaps that should be a requirement.

Yeah they do, it's called the EULA.

Regardless, the concentration of melanin in human skin does not have a demonstrable relationship with mental ability. If it did, there would be a profound trend in medical literature, as people would become dumber after summer sun exposures. This does not occur. Therefore, the color of the skin is meaningless for the ascribed metric.

Excuse me, have you ever seen Jersey Shore? Not to say you're wrong, I just had to throw that out there.

Yeah, Ardour is really not as good as ProTools... which is sad because Digidesign/Avid is far worse than Adobe is. Their software is buggy as hell and not at all backwards compatible.

How ProTools got to be "industry standard" I'll never know, it's a steaming pile of shit.
