I repeat eonlabs' request for a list posting. That sounds like a wonderful idea.

How Piracy Affected the Launch of Demigod

mpathetiq Re:So much for pirate ethics (613 comments)

If Best Buy is more efficient in their stock distribution, why shouldn't they be allowed to sell that stock first? Seems like they're running their business better and should be able to reap the benefits. After all, does the publisher really care what retail outlet is selling their wares, as long as they're being sold?

Young People Prefer "Sizzle Sounds" of MP3 Format

mpathetiq Re:Like the phonograph.... The what? (743 comments)

"Lobster used to be used as fertilizer because it was deemed 'trash food' and apprentice contracts were written that forbid having to eat it more than a few times a week."

I'm guessing you recently watched the Maine episode of Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern.

Interesting Uses For a USB LED Screen?

mpathetiq Re:Notification for everything (403 comments)

You're probably right. He was about to retire, so I bet instead of teaching us how to handle the mismatched speeds, merging, etc., he took the easy way out and said "just stay to the left." It was probably a little less stress on his ticker to do that too. I know riding around with green drivers make me nearly go into cardiac arrest. I can't imagine doing it all day.

In cities, I can handle it - things are messed up enough as is - but when you're on the highway, GET OVER, DOUCHEBAGS. I imagine it comes from crappy drivers' ed teachers; mine told me to always drive in the left lane so you "have more opportunities to avoid an accident." I'm not sure how that would work...

I don't know any Idahoians here in Ohio, so I cannot answer your question. Well, I suppose I could answer "mu". :)

"If I passed you on the right you are in the wrong fucking lane"

This is the one I would use the most. Apparently Ohioans don't understand the term "passing lane".
