Re: 0958: "Hotels"

... hazard. Eh... moral hazard refers to risk. There's no real risk involved here. Again, you could stretch it to fit, but it's not worth the effort. Cueball said it best. "That's not even the tragedy of the commons. That's the tragedy of you're a dick." ANOTHER DAY SAVED! *wooosh*

It's strange that no. 500 wasn't considered a milestone. But maybe Cueball experienced an Internal Server Error.

Guys, I just had a thought. What if this is a memorial of sorts to his wife? How they both built up their lives up to this point but now cueball is stuck representing how Randall can't move on without her.
