You sir, owe me a new keyboard.

As someone on the grandfathered Verizon unlimited plan, I'm seriously considering buying an unsubsidized phone.
My wife traded it for a 5GB plan, and has gone over her data plan with only limited youtube usage. Once XLTE gets implemented, that means you can burn through your data even faster.
It's either that or go to Sprint, which I understand in recent years has turned down the "suck" lately, and actually has decent speeds, coverage, and unlimited data.
Please show us more nerd pr0n of sexy, sexy pebbles sliding out of the exoskeleton. Then tell us it is coming out in October.
What do you mean validity?
I am no moral relativist, and personally think that some cultures are seriously fucked up. However, I don't know what you mean by "validity".
It certainly exists. Are you saying it shouldn't (if so why) or that it has some fucked up aspects to it?
It's a support group, not a culture.
I dated a girl who was a "deaf studies" major. She even got her Masters at Galludet, and is a signer somewhere on the East Coast.
I really dodged a bullet when she broke up with me. I was seeing myself having to agree with her as to the validity of "Deaf Culture" to maintain peace in the house.
But, seeing as she stomped my heart flat, I can say this without fear of reprisal: It's a support group, not a culture. Once technology has advanced such that it is no longer an issue, it will fade. Take that, Carrie Coffey (nee Rogers)!
...until the paychecks from the Patent Trolls' lobby clears.
Eve online did it first, and paid a price for doing it incorrectly...they've since apologized and said they will roll it out right.
Meanwhile, WoW is hemorrhaging users...this can only further accelerate their departure, as people find a game with more meaning...Should provide some tasty n00bs to pod...
LOVE IT....and 300mil is only one plex. You heard about the other one, right?
Oh, what the hell, I'll go for the obvious joke here:

You sir, owe me one(1) keyboard.
In exchange, you win one(1) internets.
Did you come up with that? 'cause I invented that for my facebook status update...
Seee...that's part of the suck-fest. In this one, you play a prototype Big Daddy (only done so they can explain how you can upgrade your gun/drill/use plasmids), who has to protect the little sisters from a little sister who grew up, returned to Rapture, and spliced herself into an ultra-agile big-daddy style suit (think "ninja" big-daddy).
Bioshock 2 is not going to be as good a sequel as System Shock 2 was to System Shock.
Virtually no RPG elements, and a tired re-tread of Bioshock with vaguely new elements (I.E. taking the one "protect the little sister" element from the first one and repeat it several times in this game). It's going to be, at most, a "meh" experience.
