Hmm... considering the reliability of statistics I question what margin of error is used for this number. I further speculate with an argument for 'Picture or it didn't happen'.

Or.... how bout a cool web counter!? Android Widget for +5 awesome! We could use radio contest winning concepts to be that 5 billionth person!

0.o how exciting!!

>>>...or the first baseman running for a ball that should've been the second baseman's thus leaving first base empty.

The pitcher should be on his way to first as soon as contact is made on a right-side infield grounder. If there's a bug in that essential aspect of gameplay... this game fails Baseball.

I hope these individuals are dealt with with the verocity China sets forth on individuals breaking laws of this caliber.

It amazes me how ethical behavior has taken a back seat to profits (see: Massey Energy, Maydoff, and the cause of that... oh what was that thing... uh, oh yea, global recession).

How many of you were awstruck when Google pulled out of China? I was taken aback. Shocked that I was shocked. And I asked myself why that is?At the threat of losing a huge financial opportunity, I was amazed that a company didn't take it lying down. They said 'F you' and threatened them back.

That's the way it should be and the world needs more of it.

Respect +10, Google.

What good is a ticket to the good life, if you can't find the entrance?
