It doesn't matter what the money is for. Let's take that out of the equation for a second: whether or not the money is meant for charities, there is still the original issue. Carreon (descriptive name) was doing bad things. He is in the wrong, clearly and obviously. It doesn't matter whether the money was meant for charity or hookers and blow. Now back to the money: It's just icing on the cake that it is meant for charity and the, excuse my language, dickweed is trying to block it's distribution. I can't fathom what legal leg he has to stand on there. He is doing nothing to help himself and lots to hurt. I'd guess that he feels backed into a corner and can't get out. He will only make more and more outrageous comments until this is over. I have nothing to say about his wife that is repeatable in mixed company.

Wesley? Who the hell is that? I thought this guy was Fawkes? Actually, Chandler Riggs owes me a new keyboard: that was the funniest thing I've heard in weeks.

I thought I was a geek until I saw that picture of you with that robot. Okay, so I would have felt the same way, but I wouldn't have let it show on my my face. Have some dignity ma.....wait, those grippers and the on-board laboratory does what?! Can I touch it? Can I play with it? Can you give me and the robot a few minutes alone? We are making such a connection. Um, forget I said anything. And stop looking at me so funny.

Awesome response from your son. I give no kudos to you or your wife: that was all him and he deserves recognition for it.

They got even worse. Google shopping will no longer show firearms or firearms accessories. Just type in .357 and hit the shopping link. No search results found. I'm not a rabid gun advocate, but it offends me that Google thinks that they know what's good for us. I don't know what your opinions are on firearm ownership, but I have carry permits in two states and I am of the opinion that people who say, "people shouldn't be armed" mostly mean, "People who are not me should not be armed." And they rolled that lovely feature out on the 4th of July. Happy birthday America indeed. *Steps off soapbox* Sorry about the rant. It's just one of those slippery slopes.

I've been enjoying the series (a palidian told me about it just last week.) Ticket To Ride is an excellent game. I've introduced my sister, her husband, both of their children, my brothers and my father to the game. They all love it and they aren't geeks. This game is simple to learn and easy to play but still allows for strategy. There is a game I would like you to review: RoboRally. Unfortunately it's out of print. The game is beyond cool, but it's sort of complicated. You can tell when people are playing the game across a con floor because they do the "RoboRally Dance" when they are trying to figure out what they can do with their cards. I first played it at Philcon '96. My sister never let's me visit her in Massachusetts unless I bring "The Robot Game." I don't have to bring "Ticket To Ride" because she bought it and all of it's variants as soon as I introduced her to it. It was out of print at the time so, as you can imagine, she paid a pretty penny for it.

I am currently seeding Kubuntu 12.04 (64 bit) not that much difference. I tried to just upgrade using apt-get but X choked on the NVidia drivers after the upgrade. If it wasn't for Bittorrent I wouldn't have bought nearly as many DVDs and BluRays over the last few years. I used it to catch up on Eureka (and then bought the DVDs) and The Guild. I also have The Big Bang Theory on disk because I was able to sample it from a torrent. If it wasn't for torrents I would never have seen the AD&D episode of Community and I wouldn't have purchased both seasons ( and the third one as soon as it comes out) on disc. The Walking Dead, and Game of Thrones are also purchased. Also a metric buttload of movies. But here is a use that was never intended: I needed to go to rehab for alcohol. But that was two days before the season finale to Season 4 of Doctor Who was to air. I almost didn't go until a friend told me about torrents. So I downloaded it via torrents, watched it with my girlfriend ROT13 Spoiler: naq jr obgu pevrq jura Qbaan unq ure zrzbel renfrq, and then I went into rehab and changed my life. I was going to use Doctor Who as an excuse to keep drinking. Bittorrent took away my excuse. Now while I may not be a standard case of a bitorrent user, it's made more money for the MAFIAA from me than if I didn't have it. Probably by about a thousand dollars.

I'm confused. Too many dice? I know what the words mean individually, but when you string them together like that it's utterly meaningless. By the way: My dice are bigger than yours.
