April 15th.  Michigan.  Power went out for a few hours from wind.  Snowing now.

You are not.

Is it supposed to be a joke or something?

Snow here in TN as well.  Bizarre year.  I'm glad I didn't put in my plants the other day.

That is good that you didn't get plantings in yet.

Looks like we got about an inch last night and it's sticking to grass but not sidewalks, driveways and streets.  To me the snow this late is a great sign: it means that there will be fewer bugs and insects this year, because they would have started to hatch when it was warm for so long (and with the days longer - don't know what all is involved in bug/insect gestation), and the new cold will kill a ton of those who were 'eager' to get out and do things.

Thanks, I was wondering about that, I just thought a change of forum them had broken them, I'll update it over the easter break. Have to come up with some new ideas.

Sounds like you're tangled up in quite the imbruglia.

Hmm, apparently I'm a very lazy reader, and quite frequently I just pick a couple letters from a word and put them in my own order.

Until a couple weeks ago I assumed that the "Scam o'clock" thread was "Sam o'clock", and was about a forum member named Sam's podcast that he would plug occasionally.  I have no idea where I got it into my head that it was about a podcast, and I don't know any Sams here, but that's what I've thought for years now and have stayed out of the thread because of it.

Also, I've never bothered to actually read some names here on the forums.  Until today I've always read GoFlyBlind as golfybind (in my head pronounced goalfeebined).    I think I have lazy dyslexia.  Dyslazia.

I thought the exact same thing up until about a month ago.

So a couple of months ago I listened to Stephen Fry read the entire series of Harry Potter.

And ever since then I just couldn't help thinking how much money Warner Brothers/Rowling left on the table by not having the film cast read their lines of the books like a play (keep Stephen as narrator).  Seriously that would have been like printing (more) money for almost no work.

The PBS Game/Show channel on Youtube is one of my favorites. I love examining and thinking about games and gamer culture in different and interesting ways. This week, they did an episode about what the genres of games you play say about you as a person, and proceeded to break it down into 8 different subsets of people. They aren't mutually exclusive groups, meaning you can be a part of multiples.

My issue is that they just a month ago did an episode on how segregating and dividing the gamer community was bad, using the actual word "gamer" as an example. The argument is that there's no real way to determine who is a gamer, because there's not really a clear definition of a gamer. A lot of people use the word to exclude people from the group, i.e. fake girl gamers, casuals, etc, which is detrimental to the culture as a whole. How is the idea of dividing gamers based on personality ANY better than that?
