A reference to the way the founder of the company met his end could be made here, but I'll not.

They put those things in when they built the new wing of our science building.  Really annoying, if you are still too long the lights go out, or move to a part of the room the sensor can't see, or if someone manually turns off the lights they need a minute to reset before you can press the button to turn them back on.  Actually wastes electricity because people that are used to them in that side of the building don't turn off the lights when they leave a room on the old side of the building (that still has regular switches).

Didn't they have a joke about those things in Gremlins 2?

Yeah, I used to have one in my old office here at work. If I sat still for too long (which happened often, I don't move around much at work) the lights went off. It was annoying as fuck. I'd have to roll my chair around to get the lights to go back on or just sit in the dark.

Salman Rushdie is THE BOMB! Not only is he a brilliant writer and extremely intelligent, but he was married to Padma from Top Chef.

She's not hot per se
No? I mean, she's not Morwenna hot or Pauline hot, but she's hardly simply luke-warm either.

Who would you want her to play?

It's a board game based on The Trail of Tears? How? What are the objectives and how do you win? Does it come from the makers of Dachau; The Game for All The Family and Kitchener: The Boer Concentration Camp Tycoon Game?

Ah, had to squint at that (bottom left hand corner right, still can't quite make it out), so from the makers of Theresienstadt Whizz-banger Assortment and Comfort Woman Joy Division Party Selection then?
