Story was covered Friday, sorry guys.
Made me think of Achmed and his 'premature detonation.'
Sad to think this is how people need to express their world view, happy when it turns out like this for them.
My autistic son was better playing quake than I was when he was two. He would stand there wobbling around with crappy balance and shoot people with the rail gun that I wouldn't hit with a shotgun. He saw me playing it *once* and got on it the moment I left the machine. I am hoping some kind of technical career for him, as (a) he can do shit on the computer that I can't fathom at times, and (b) there is nothing mechanical he needs to see more than once to figure it out. Now at age 8 and counting.
There is a good chance that he was cheating, and simply not able to understand the social implications of it - after all, not understanding social interactions is a defining aspect of autism. My son would figure out how to install a cheat in seconds.
Here is one that I knew about off hand...
Google will return more.
I wonder how many people even got that was a quote.
I muched prefered the nights dawn trilogy, and I am not buying a single part of the dreaming series until they are all out in paperback. I did not enjoy waiting for Judas unchained so I could continue reading the same book.
Fries with Gravy
Never could get them to make it right when I was travelling down south. A good dark brown beef gravy with mozzarella cheese curds would sure hit the spot right now. mmmmm.
And I am not in a French region of Canada, but I still enjoy it. Immensely,
Off topic, we also have a far wider variety of chip flavours, and other gut size-enhancing snacks.
We would have to ask Scotty if we had enough power to beam broadband.
Posting from a place that gets cold... The expansion cracks get ridiculous in the winter, hammers like a flat tire. And they seemed to need lots of maintenance, if my experiences in Winnipeg were any indicator. Where I am now they will put down a concrete pad where trucks stop and rut up the road, like at lights, but the rest is asphalt. The asphalt cracks about every 14 feet after a couple years from the cold/hot cycle.
Also, watermains tend to be run under roads as well, and it's much easier and quicker to patch a cut when they make a repair when the road is asphalt. The curing time to full strength isn't measured in days.
