" The town will never be the same. After the Tangiers, the big corporations took it all over. Today it looks like Disneyland. And while the kids play cardboard pirates, Mommy and Daddy drop the house payments and Junior's college money on the poker slots.

After the Teamsters got knocked out of the box, the corporations tore down practically every one of the old casinos. And where did the money come from to rebuild the pyramids? Junk bonds. "

I prefer my input devices to be as _______ as possible.

Of course, part of a device being comfortable is having it be precise and customizable so I don't have to focus too hard on using it, otherwise that's where the "withstands violent impact" option comes in.
