Teen Fakes Pregnancy for School Project

aetherian So long... (8 comments)

Whoa, who in their right mind would choose to endure such... such... things, for however long that was, many months, all for just a school project, albeit a large one.

More Nintendo Console Rumors

aetherian Definition for wii haters at last. (150 comments)

Finally, the largest, yet most annoying to some, argument against the wii will be brought down -- that of graphics. Far, far too many XBox fanpersons rag on the wii for it's "horrible graphics," ignoring all the other high points. Although I doubt graphics will ever be a super important thing to me, it'll be nice to not have to listen to people constantly complain about Nintendo and graphics.
