If you get it from the library, make sure there are no notes translating the book's slang scrawled in the margins. That ruined the first part of the book for me.

My state's in it, but it doesn't feel like it. Maybe I just don't watch enough TV to catch the awful, awful campaign ads. In any case, I'm registered as an Independent, so I can't vote in either primary.

I like the feeling of being the ghost in the machine that Introversion evoked in Defcon and Uplink . It lets you use your imagination. Every time I crashed a central mainframe in Uplink , I pictured a bunch of executives panicking and wondering what on Earth they would have to do next. Every time a ...

Is Luc Besson any good? I saw a movie he produced (Banlieue 13) to practice French and came out thinking the action fine and the story preachy. Are the movies he directed any better?

As do I (cursory Greek and Latin is useful), along with automatically eliminating words of the wrong type. But there are words that just sound like their meanings, despite my lack of (conscious) knowledge of them - for example, poteen as bootleg whiskey. I'm puzzled by the ranking of some of the wo...

Left/Right: -0.25
Libertarian/Authoritarian: -4.26

Huh. About what I'd expect. I don't know much about economics, so I'd expect to be close to the center there. I'm curious about which of the answers I gave were authoritarian.

Are all of those subtitles jokes, or do they actually add up to something?

I'm almost afraid to try out this game. I liked NetHack, but this seems to push ASCII to a whole different level. I get vertigo looking at the screenshots.

Dude, Joy Division would have loved you.

EDIT: I, too, think that picture goes next to "awesome" in the dictionary.

Where is that? Fairly close or a few hours out? When I was twelve or eleven or so, I went to summer camp at a place where there was a decrepit brick building set off aside from the main campgrounds and locked with chains and a padlock. It was small and had a green slanted roof with a little gable on...

Well, I'm pretty sure it's David Lee Roth, but some would probably debate that he was really a musician...and why is he with the guy on the left?

I simply will not spring to the defense of my native land's spelling of color, no matter how much it offends my sense of honor not to do so. I find it hard to sympathize with either side of this foolish argument, so I will not show favoritism by putting my foot down either way. Take that check to th...
