Once again, or so the media exclaimed, silver is the most popular of car colors. Well whoopie. It's hard to bash consumers for favoring a "color" that is useful (digression: is silver really a color per se or a lack of color, along the same lines as… more »

Pet Peeves in Gaming

We all have the things in games that drive us up a wall. Sometimes it's the insanely complicated maneuvers they expect us to pull off. Or the microscopic target mounted on the back of the gigantic titan. Or the stupidest AI in the world that we have to… more »

Someone was visiting / meeting with a person who sits near me. I could hear his big mouth periodically through the closed door, but not enough to really bother me. Then I hear the door open, but I am not paying attention until . . . He talks, I mean… more »
