First, instead of linking a page that gives you eye strain and is generally a boil on the ass of the internet, please link to the actual source, as has been pointed out before.

And second, I think this link (the one mentioned above, not the one in TFS) should go to as many leaders of state as possible, just to help them put their own imagined importance into perspective.

I don't know. Why don't you ask the makers of these games.

Oh look. They ain't UT clones. There's a RTS. There is a survival horror game (ok, this now almost forces the "and how many survival horror games..." question). And I think over there's an Adventure game. There's a racing game in there too, go, try to find it!

If you have a specific concern, tell us.

I had to take a bus a few weeks ago because of the weather and there are a whole lot of mutants out there. A couple of them even looked like they could have been Slashdot readers.

RF radiation and high-fructose corn syrup are as good an explanation as any.

it's quite the contrary, we (finns) throw water to stove, which boils immediately forming steam (löyly) which fills the 'sauna room' (löylyhuoneen).

Considering the drinking habits of the Finns I've known, I'm not sure I want to be copying their health regime.

I've known some big drinkers, but Finns are in a class by themselves.
