I think you are falling for a false stereotype. Gamers are great patrons. I live in Indianapolis and Gen Con is hosted here. Every year I see stories on the local news talking about how the local businesses love the Gen Con attendees. This year I saw the owner of The Ram, a local restaurant/brew house, on the news talking about how great the business was during Gen Con and how his staff enjoyed working during the event. They wouldn't be saying that if they were all sitting around drinking water and taking up space.

My wife and I have had AAA for a few years, and we love it. I have used it for a dead battery, a tow when my transmission died, and a flat tire with lug nuts so tight I couldn't get them off. My wife also used it when her car started to overheat. It has been well worth it. We recently went to Disney and stayed off site. Because we were AAA members we were able to get "diamond" parking right up front at every park. I can't say enough nice things about AAA.
Did you find the brown haired woman that "rescued" Baltar to be a bit creepy?
It seemed like she was using him as a pawn so she could be in control of the group. She didn't appear to believe in him the way the followers did. I wouldn't be surprised if she was poisoning the boy, and then stopped so she could create a miracle just to set him up as the real deal.
The design is sturdy (as opposed to a helicopter) and can fly high (as opposed to a hovercraft). It is based on the "Coanda Effect" ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coanda_Effect ).
"Looking back on the earth's climate history, it's apparent that there's no such thing as an optimal temperature — a climate at which everything is just right. The current alarm rests on the false assumption not only that we live in a perfect world, temperaturewise, but also that our warming forecasts for the year 2040 are somehow more reliable than the weatherman's forecast for next week.
