I really wish the Prison Architect forum wouldn't light up as unread in the main index when there are posts in the subforum I can't even see.

I really wish they'd give a general system spec requirement, so I know whether to even bother buying it.

Is it bad that I couldn't stop laughing the first several minutes?

I hope not. Same reaction here (to an earlier video just showing the gameplay).

Well that Super Bowl was just full of surprises - so worth the watch! Now, what to do at 5 AM? I could sleep, but then again I have to get up again at 6:30...

Damn you time zones!

The 49ers got robbed, that group of Refs blew a couple of major calls like that " Holding" on the 4th down

Oh come off it. It's just ridiculous how oblivious 49ers fans seem to be about the far more present pass interference Crabtree committed on Smith compared to that minor contact of Smith on Crabtree they're obsessing over. The ball wasn't even close to being catchable. Perhaps the refs made some mistakes - that wasn't one of them.

The 49ers played pretty well and I have to give props to Kaepernick for his skyrocketing into the spotlight, but you can't deny that for every good call being made he created a mistake with grave consequences. He didn't lose the game for them, but definitely wouldn't have won it either. Baltimore allowed lots of points because of a wavering defense but had a strong presence on the other side - the 49ers went up and down on both offense and defense and were simply not the better of the two.

Plus, how can you not love Ray Lewis. Even as an atheist. :)

He held onto him at the goal line.....also on the two point conversion when Ed Reed was Clearly at least one yard/maybe two offsides.

It's worth watching the second video linked from that.

The second Judge clearly has a lot of experience with drug users and knew the score.

The first judge hardly spoke to her, was asking questions about her to other people instead of just asking her and didn't even seem to know what Xanax was and was basically rude to her (Telling him to fuck off if he said 'bye bye' to me like that would have passed my mind). Sure, her behaviour was awful, but all those videos show is that half of any sentence you get is down the to attitude, knowledge (or lack thereof) and experience of a judge.

He was discussing with the public defender issues of her case, as well as the clerk about procedural matters. Direct questioning of the accused by the court is irregular, since it may undermine their rightsbto silence, counsel, and due process.

Also, that's not a sentencing hearing. It's a bond hearing. He didn't fine her $10,000, he set that as her bond requirement.

What's a bond requirement? (I know nothing about law, not to mention US law)

A bond is a deposit paid to the court after an arrest but before the trial. It allows you to return home during that time, and f you show up in court, the money is returned. If you don't, you forfeit the deposit. If you choose not to pay it, or are unable to pay it, tthen you stay in jail until the trial.

Since most people don't have that much money laying around, there is the bail bonds industry. A company will take a smaller amount from you, and pay the rest. If you show up, they get the deposit and you pay them whatever you agreed on. If you don't show up the company loses the money unless they can return you, so they'll send bounty hunters.
