It's supposed to be a jury of your peers, and in a way, should be along the same lines of the peer review process for scientific papers. If I want my paper on astro physics to be peer reviewed, I don't get bob the plumber and tom the gardener to look at it. If the people doing the reviewing and making the judgment aren't qualified to understand the information, then how can you trust their judgment.

SD tvs are a thing of the past. Can you even still buy a SD TV? Maybe if you are going to walmart and buying the 6 inch B&W TV on the bargain shelf. Technology changes, if you are playing HD games on a SD TV, it's possibly time to upgrade.

Also, I'm color blind, but I don't get pissy when a game comes out that involves matching colors. I cannot play boogie bunnies. Simply cannot. I haven't lost any sleep over it.

I imagine that the real war will be between the hippies not wanting us to drill where we can or use nuclear fuels, and the people who still want to have electricity.

It will be a short war, what with one side having all the guns, and the other side being too high to remember where the battles are to take place...

they haven't changed much in the last hundred million years or so. You could go back to the time of the dinosaurs and they would still be recognizable.

Are they the same species? If they aren't, then the original species has gone extinct. The same is true for humanity. We are Homosapien, once there are no more of us, then the human race as we know it is extinct.

Wouldn't that be, "kick it with Tom Cruise OR Xenu"? Xenu being the bad guy in the scientology mythology. I never understood why people keep saying things like this other than they don't actually understand the religion and just think it's cool to mock it. Please, L. Ron is their god, Xenu is their devil. L. Ron you can kick it with because he is currently astrally projecting himself around the cosmos, Xenu is buried under a mountain somewhere and would be difficult to kick it with.
