Why would I not remember a game that was revamped and re-released less than a year ago?

>Besides shotgunning a couple of over-generalized links to Google searches (thorough research there!),

Thank you.

>you might have noticed the part about selfishness, which does not perforce involve mirrors.

No, but the part about the very origin of the word 'narcissism' does.

Why don't you read up on logical fallacies, especially the one called 'moving the goalposts'.

Is the World Ready For Facial Recognition On Google Glass?

Ultra64 Re:Merry Stasi Christmas! (469 comments)

>Kindly familiarize yourself with the full meaning of the word Ok:

Narcissism is a term that originated with Narcissus in Greek mythology who fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water. Currently it is used to describe the pursuit of gratification from vanity, or egotistic admiration of one's own physical or mental attributes, that derive from arrogant pride. " - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Narcissism/

narÂcisÂsism noun 1. excessive or erotic interest in oneself and one's physical appearance. - https://www.google.com/search?q=define%3A+narcissism

So...it means exactly what I said in my post. What was the point you thought you were making?

This doesn't even make any sense, unless you are implying that they'd be staring at themselves in the mirror all the time.

When did Slashdot become so full of luddites?

Years ago there would have been nothing but comments full of ideas for amazing things you accomplish using a device like this.

Now it seems like the site is populated almost entirely by pubescent teenagers acting macho and boasting how they'd beat someone up and break their glasses.
