"Somehow I think this "evolution" started well before someone thought to take a truck and bolt a "trunk" on it."
Actually SUV's are Minivans with Trunks. Trucks by design have a seperate cab from the bed and that resulted in too many complications when trying to design SUVs. So the solution was to take a minivan and convert it by giving the front of it a "truck look" to make it appeal to men.
Basically the SUV was designed for people who have lots of kids but are too insecure to buy the minivan to accomodate them.
In the event that you actually manage to send enough units to beat your opponent in the past and the time wave moves forward and wipes out your opponent in the present you are still stuck with one problem.
What if the other player has started reversing time when they notice they are losing and is now back to the beggining creating his first unit again when you wipe out his base in the future?
"Hey I won!"
- "No, you didn't, I'm just starting."
"Well you're dead in the future."
- "The future is not written. I'm just starting."
"This is Bullshyt, man!"
- "Pardon? Why dont you create a unit and stop typing because i'm about to zerg rush you."
Apple: Look, you're suffocating me, we need to take a break.
Google: What's wrong baby? We were doing so well together!
Apple: I TOLD YOU! I JUST NEED SOME SPACE! YOUR APPS ARE ALL OVER MY ROOM!
Google: Fine... Don't come crying to me when your MAPS stop working!
"Why don't we ask him to write about homework ("a near-epidemic in America")"
Probably because he's not an American?
He over generalizes throughout the entire report and failed to backup any point with real study statistics. This entire report is basically one kid's opinion of how his friends prioritize their extremely limited expenses. Why on earth this generated so much attention is beyond me.
The worst part? He's now in a position to leverage this momentary popularity to continue spouting his BS as fact.
"There was a great deal of discussion about Wrath of the Lich King at Blizzcon"
Translation - How can we prevent the loss of players moving to Warhammer for serious pvp?
"Players will be able to swap between two specs in order to facilitate their participation in both PvE and PvP."
Translation - For the first time since release players will be able to enjoy the game and have decent gear! OMG!
"Blizzard wants to diversify the options for PvP and take the focus off arenas. They also want to develop more and more PvP content and create some sort of mechanism for players to gain experience in battlegrounds."
Translation - Ok guys... everyone who used to enjoy PvP is going to warhammer, quick, steal their ideas!
"They said they wanted to help the shortage of tanks by creating another class that could fill the role."
Translation - After 4 years of every class who tanks asking for a viable method of actually tanking we've decided to offer them the option to reroll. LOL
"Another major goal was to get each talent tree for each class a specific playstyle"
Translation - We hope that this time around we'll give all classes 3 actual trees instead of just our favorites.
"Blizzard considered revamping the dispel system too -- they aren't satisfied with the current implementation -- but said they didn't want to introduce another huge set of changes at this time."
Translation - There were talks here at blizzard of allowing certain classes to use more then one button in raids and still win. Sadly, that was shot down because we don't want everyone having fun.
"In addition, they talked about their decision to unify several itemization stats in order to make it easier on some classes to switch roles, and to reduce the number of items required to support all possible specs."
Translation - THIS JUST IN! Hybrids are going to finally have a functional inventory!
"As you may recall, we asked you for interview questions for various Blizzard employees; stay tuned, their answers will be up soon."
Translation - You are cordially invited to watch us stroke our Massive E-Peen.
