It's not a party without race music and queers lol
It's just a matter of time before GenCon is replaced by PAX. PAX Prime, PAX East, PAX South, PAX Australia -- Penny Arcade is racking up the attendance by being more focused on gamers and gaming than on profiteering.
Because Christ's central message was "Fuck you, that's not how I want to rule the world."
Wait, no, that was HITLER'S message. I believe Christ's was "Love your neighbor as your brother."
The demand for rooms during GenCon allows Indianapolis hotels to charge $600-$800/night for a lousy $100/night room. I hope GenCon does leave, because Indiana is a shitty backwards state that's stuck in the 80's -- the 1880's.

When replacing my parents' AT&T U-Verse router with a brand new U-Verse router, I was dismayed to note that it only supports 802.11g. WTF? That's a wifi standard from 2003. It's as if AT&T give zero fucks about your wi-fi experience.
Terrible politicians getting involved in matters that they don't fully comprehend, making awful decrees and threats. Snowden is not the enemy of democracy: secret state actions are a greater threat to our nation.
the biggest benefit of the private dealership racket is that they buy cars from the mfg, leaving the manufacturer off the hook. if mfg's were forced to all sell direct, they'd have more reasons to focus on building quality cars.
