    Soooo, I ordered an Nvidia Shield today

    I am so confused by the marketing minds that went into creating Ouya and Shield. Basic console gaming economics has always depended upon licensing agreements with developers, which helps the console build up its software library right? Shield streams games from your PC, and Ouya plays Android...

    R.I.P. SnowKitty

    Age 24 is too young to go. I didn't know SnowKitty personally but losing him is a tragedy. :(

    Low-balling asshats

    You don't have to answer lowballing. Just tell the other person that there are a lot of people waiting in line, so kindly vacate your asshat offer. Always worked for me. Also don't take no shit from anyone who tells you that you're lowballing yourself by setting your asking price below market...

    This week in Islam: 8 yr old bride dies on wedding night, if from sex

    Lemony, I was just thinking that, it was not meant to drag you out to disavow FLDS yet again. Wikipedia lists it as a fundamentalist offshot that practices Mormonism, as it was once practiced in 19th century. Just as you say, LDS want nothing to do with FLDS.

    This week in Islam: 8 yr old bride dies on wedding night, if from sex

    Well, I got an email from a moderator about this, so I had to look it up, 'cos I thought I was mixing idiomatic expressions. Turns out I'm in the clear. dig one's own grave Fig. to be responsible for one's own downfall or ruin. dig your own grave to do something stupid that will cause...

    This week in Islam: 8 yr old bride dies on wedding night, if from sex

    Just looking them up on Wikipedia suggests you earned 3 strikes. "bacha bazi" is indigenous to Afghanistan only, female circumcision dates back to ancient Egypt, and child brides well, it can be found in all sorts of cultures. A sect of Mormons notably practice it still, and subsequently became...

    This week in Islam: 8 yr old bride dies on wedding night, if from sex

    Do I sense passive aggressiveness. A lot of news media pick up The Onion articles frequently and run with it too, so what's your point. Don't hate just 'cos I point out there is dispute about the veracity of the reporting. Note that I also in no way make light of the problem of exploiting...

    This week in Islam: 8 yr old bride dies on wedding night, if from sex

    Well, not the first time a story was concocted about still living individuals. Sells papers maybe? Anyways, the journalist insists that it's true, but government officials, and an independent children's rights organization in Yemen says the story is false. The journalist has to protect his...

    Former SNK developers crowd funding Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm

    Short of pressure from a lawsuit, I doubt it. How much crackdown did the government bring upon the financial institutions following the housing meltdown? Exactly. And the weak rules are being further weakened even right now.

    This week in Islam: 8 yr old bride dies on wedding night, if from sex

    Latest news update says this story is false. Not saying that child brides aren't a problem though, and I know a lot of friends who have worked for NGOs that campaign against exploitation of women and underaged girls. You hear about a lot of moneyed people from the gulf, rich from oil wealth...

    Former SNK developers crowd funding Yatagarasu: Attack on Cataclysm

    How is that actually legal? I thought the point of the crowdfunding was to put supporters in the seat of directly supporting creators. PayPal is doing something very fishy here.

    Shantae HD Kickstarter project

    It is really weird that her skin complexion has lightened up so much. Continuity problem! I may write WayForward technologies about this, it's already really weird that Hollywood and television pull this kind of shit, but for video games to join the trend…

    Syria

    NY Times tries a bit of old fashioned redaction on the debate surrounding Syria. But in the age of the internet, such attempts is akin to showing your tail to the world:
