Just to throw in my tow cents drachmae, I also fully believe CI, though I'm still averse to hammering(:-") until we sort out who we want to vig/D3 lynch(if it comes to that). I'm personally quite comfortable with VD(Finland) for both, but the discussion doesn't seem to be quite over yet. I'm a...

Re: Video Games inducing Nausea

Zork got me pretty motion sick once. Aha jk, the only game that's ever given me a headache was Mario Tennis on Virtual Boy.

Anyway, the depth of field/motion blur thing is why some people get sick during 3D movies as well.

PE being mafia is more evidence that Finland is mafia. They knew who each other were, so why would PE be defending a townie so adamantly?...

So you teach kids to eat the right way. That has absolutely nothing to do with racism. Noone is saying the kid is inferior for eating the wrong way - they are just saying he shouldn't. First of all, this is pretty hypocritical. Having a "right" and "wrong" way which is based on ...
