Not sure I even want to find out what mine is...all I know is that it's less than I'm paying for. And considerably behind everyone I know.

You can now refund a game within 14 days of purchase for any reason, provided that you have played the game for less than two hours.
Developers of games that are shorter than two hours have since noticed their sales dropping somewhat.

Steam Refunds are so great; I requested a refund for COD: AW because it is terrible and hopefully I get the money back in time for the rest of the Summer Sale

Facebook offered me as "friend" someone who is my mom's IRL friend. Mom doesn't have a facebook, her friend - I've had very little phone (twice a year or so) communication with this person, and seemingly no links of any other kind. Wow and wtf.

Thank you for that confirming my aversion to MyFace is well-founded.

One of the most startling ways Facebok can link people is by cross-reference the contacts list of users' e-mail accounts with the addresses of every other FB account. So say this friend had your e-mail address, and she gave Facebook permission to scan her Gmail contacts, it would make a suggestion. Although, it doesn't sound like this was so in your case.

All in all, data algorithms can be rather frightening sometimes. Blame people like xander for this.

My goal in life is to produce beautiful mathematics that are absolutely no practical use outside of mathematics. Nothing that I do has any use for organizations like Facebook, the NSA, or data miners. I hope it remains that way, at least until well after I am dead.
