That's not how I remember it. There were arcades everywhere and video games in every bar back in the 80's and everybody (not just nerds) dropped quarters in them. Pac man and even more so ms pac man, pole position, galaga, sinistar, tempest, defender, asteroids and a pile of other games being played non-stop by all sorts of people, not just so called nerds.

What kind of injuries? Curious to know what would prevent you from doing any sort of exercise. When my feet were f-ed up with plantar fascitis I couldn't run, but I could still do a rowing machine. When I broke my wrist I stopped biking for a few months and used an elliptical instead.

I think that it's an Americanism. In Canada the native people of the high Arctic call themselves Innuit. (I think it means people). Eskimo is considered mildly derogatory (or at least clueless) here - maybe not like calling a black person a nigger, more like calling a Chinese person a Chinaman.

If he dies before finishing the series, I swear, by all that is holy and all that is not, that I will find his soul wherever it lands and drag him back to this vale of tears. And then, when his undead shade has finished the series I will kill him myself for being such a dick.

I use a Microsoft Wireless Mouse 5000. Completely symetrical, so it works left exactly the same a right. I mouse left, but I got used to the "left click" on the left. It works fine with the buttons remapped (ie left click on right button) I just don't use it that way. It's nothing special otherwise, and I'm sure gamerz will laugh at it, but it works ok for me.
