Just so you know, California pays a great deal more in federal taxes than it receives in federal benefits, only receiving 78 cents for every dollar sent out.

Shouldn't it be pretty simple to stuff this worm back into its can?. Put a 1% tax on the sale price (not gains) for any stock which is held for less than 1 minute. HFT will instantly disappear. Human beings will never notice. What am I missing?
I seem to recall that, the second time around, the judge's ruling was essentially "Well, if the shoe fits..."
What an amazing world we live in, where a customer can be 'blamed' for buying 2,000 units of your luxury goods product at full retail price.
Listen to what you are saying. A video games developer shouldn't think about whether or not their game is fun? And for the record, PC game developers DO spend a lot of time trying to ensure that the game is 'fun' between two PCs, hence the popularity of anti-cheating software. Shadowrun may be a case study of a bungled job, but there's no point in going to all the trouble of developing a game mode which no one will play because it sucks.
I love that line too, but the pedant in me is compelled to ruin it. Certainly a ship that was intended for deliveries to other planets would have been designed with the atmospheres of other planets in mind, which are potentially much more pressurized than that of Earth (consider for instance the high-gravity planet where Zapp broke the hover dolly with a load of pillows). Of course, Farnsworth is old and senile...
My masochistic nature forced me to play all the way through that game despite it being insanely repetitive.
I have no idea what this guy is talking about when he says Elika has an advanced AI. She follows you around when you walk. Sometimes, she'll get out of your way if you backtrack. When you are doing acrobatics, she follows you step-for-step. Then, when you fall, there's a cutscene where she catches you. Also, when you reach certain points in the level, she has dialogue. That's it. I would be rather surprised if a Super NES lacked the computational power to move her around.
I was in Las Vegas recently, and the entire strip was full of fullscreen content stretched to fit widescreens. It seemed like a little metaphor for Las Vegas, really.
Just rename it to A Series of Runways.
Don't worry, dawg. Xzibit is on his way; he's heard that you love PDFs...
Per your own source, Lump > Peaches > Kitty in terms of charting.
Yo dawg, I heard you like web browsers...
I'm only voting for you if you promise to nominate Theo de Raadt to head up the Department of Userland Security.
I guess you'd have to ask the creators why they chose it. Trouble is, no one knows who they were, or what they were doing.
