Forgot to mention that once every so often (maybe yearly?) I'll log in and have a free game in my account.
I haven't received my invite yet so I can't comment on the Galaxy experience, but I can tell you sales are certainly not a problem. If you ever pay the asking price on GOG, you have no patience, they have a minimum of one sale a week. The sales are frequently every game in a series, or every game from a publisher, and I've saved as much as 85% off the normal price.
What's also nice is that if they do a sale like save 10% if you buy this game, 45% if you buy the whole series type of sale, and you already own some of the games, you still get the full discount for completing the set.
As a kid/teen, some of my favorites were by William Sleator. A lot of sci-fi staples were introduced to me in his books (cloning, 4th/5th/nth dimensions, black holes, telepathy, time travel). My favorites were House of Stairs and Interstellar Pig.
I also enjoyed the Tripods series by John Christopher.
Also, I'm seconding the Danny Dunn and Tom Swift series. I think the series of Swift I read was the Tom Swift, Jr. from the 50's and 60's.
Don't worry, friend! Even though you "deleted" it, your Facebook account is never really deleted! For your convenience, of course! Just log back in and it's all still there, and now you're back whether or not you want to be! Hooray!
I deleted my account about a month and a half ago. Facebook said they would keep it for 15 days, then it would be truly deleted. I waited about a month before I tested it, but it now claims to have no record of my login. My brother also reports that I don't show up as an inactive friend, but I can't verify that.
Mind you, I have no doubt that all of my information is still archived for eternity on their servers, but my account is for all practical intents and purposes deleted.
I'd like an invite, if you still have any.

White is opposite yellow. Blue is opposite green. Are you sure you hadn't just forgotten how to solve a Rubik's Cubes?
White/yellow is the Western color scheme; White/Blue was more common in Japan, but I've had one or two of them here in the States, too.
