Possession of knowledge isn't a crime, but utilizing it can be. Of course, distributing and discussing it can likely be considered probable cause (what couldn't these days, though?), leading to a world of shit coming one's way.

That said, I'd like to learn what I can about nearly anything. Please, continue. For the sake of learning.

Don't drink, myself, but I love the on-air ads. Good stuff.

Weird. 100% for me, too. Fascinating.

Teddy bears with guns are the only ones worth having, aren't they?

Anyhow, I'm over there

Ditto, lots of interesting and unusual things. No sightings, however.

Egad, man, sold!

This stuff looks (and sounds, from the description) amazing. Now to check my bank account...

Infinity Ward has a history of eliciting strong emotional responses in the games I've played. The ending of Call of Duty 4, in particular, as well as a few other moments from the game stick out in my mind. I think this opening scene is not just pandering to the lowest shock-value common denominator, but instead attempting to show firsthand what the player will be fighting to stop. It's really not significantly worse than your average action movie. With this scene, the player will be emotionally connected to the events that follow. After all, does anyone ever really get a sense of the scale of destruction they're trying to prevent in a game like this?

That's a very astute and accurate description, yes.

It does exist, but apparently it's being taken down rapidly when it surfaces. I've seen about 30 seconds of it, and it looked legit to me.

DDO, for the hell of it. Free is nice.

I've been playing a random assortment of 360 games as well, but not much in multiplayer. Not many of my friends have been around lately.

Nice juxtaposition. They're not mutually exclusive, of course.

A coworker of mine brought up Colombia's legalization of possession of small amounts of, apparently, all drugs for personal use. I hadn't heard about it, but speculated that it was to reduce the power and funding of the cartels.

So, I look it up, and apparently it happened (according to what I've been able to discern) in the mid-90s, for the exact reason I guessed, go figure. Don't know what it's like now, but the funny thing is my coworker tried blaming poverty levels on the legal drugs. She's one of those "protect the children from drugs" types, and didn't get that drug use isn't the only cause of being "poor."

But I digress. Add Colombia to the mix, pending someone else's knowledge or less-lazy-than-me research, I guess.
